During my trip to Armenia I will be ministering in a number of cities returning to the city of Ararat, at the foot of Mount Ararat (pictured). I spent a great day there last April on my trip to this nation. The pastor of the local church plant (year four begins) has a church of 100+ and has planted a substantial number of house churches in surrounding towns and villages. I will be ministering to the wider group that relate to him this trip. Last year I simply ministered to his people in the home church. Samvel is someone I have been mentoring for a year, he worked a summer youth camp in Russia last summer for me, and has just spent two weeks with me in Moscow and Tula ministering as he learned what it means to be an apostle.
He will be spending the majority of my week in Armenia with me – learning and also driving me around to the various places. During the visit I will participating in an ordination service for him as well as continuing to mentor him in his apostolic calling. He is a great brother and a powerful minister of the Gospel – sacrificing much to do the work God has called him to.
This is my second full day travelling – please pray for strength, wisdom and insight. I will be using a portion of the travel and airport wait time to continue to prepare the material I will be teaching as well as simply to seek the Lord’s heart so that, if He so desires, I will be as ready as possible to break with the plans they have given me and simply flow with Him and do what He has planned. Please pray for breakthroughs in each church I will be working with – that the power, presence, and peace of God may be experienced by each and every person in attendance.
Your prayers and partnership with me in this ministry are greatly appreciated and never taken for granted.
