IMG_0875We can not sit silent while we know so many without the hope of knowing love!  So we prayerfully make plans and in God’s wisdom think creatively.  By God’s grace there will be fruit of our work and by His strength we will never give up.  We are planing our third annual orphan ministry seminar.  The team has grown this year to include people with very divers backgrounds and strengths.  I am honored to be a part of this very important work!  Surrounded by graceful teachers I decided to use this time as a learning experience so I took notes on the board.  IMG_0874

As I made mistakes or asked for clarification my team practiced such patience and helped me in my journey to a better knowledge of the Russian language.  They also blessed me with the opportunity to serve during the seminar in creative ways since I would not be able or comfortable leading a session.  I will be taking care of the coffee-break and preparing some important questions for a hand-out.

I am looking forward to all the churches that will be participating in this weekend the last few days in August.  I pray that through this time they will be filled with strength and passion to take into action the things they learn.  Please pray with me for the Lord to lead the speakers as they prepare there presentations.  Please also pray that many will attend and orphan ministry will begin to spread like wild fire in our area.

Чистое и непорочное благочестие пред Богом и Отцем есть то, чтобы призирать сирот и вдов в их скорбях…

Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble…
