Ralph is currently in Ukraine – ministering prophetically and laying apostolic foundations. This daily blog was written by him before he left and is being posted by his personal assistant. As computer hook-ups allow he will add in “Ukraine Blogs” telling us what the Lord is doing during his mission trip. Also, as time and computer hook-ups allow, he will be personally reponding to any entries you make as he always does when in his study and not travelling trans-locally. He returns on he 22nd of November, 2008.
Week two in Ukraine. We have finished in Boyorka and have travelled 11 hours south to be with Dima (Dymitri) whom my local church in Rgina, Saskatchewan has financially supported for a number of years. His calling into apostolic ministry is more evident now than ever before. A powerful man of God who is only beginning to impact the world apostolically and prophetically.
It has been a busy visit with a great deal of teaching (3 sessions a day) and ministering prophetically each time as well as late into the night after the last service has been dismissed. We have three more days here teaching and ministering – the third and last day being just for senior leaders of local churches so much more focused and hopefully relaxed – questions and answers and, guess what, more prophetic ministry.
Then an 11 hour train trip back north, flight from Kiev, Ukraine to Amsterdam, Holland then another flight to Minneapolis, MN., and after a 5 hour wait a flight to Regina and home to my own bed. Great opportunity to read and write and think through and journal the experiences I have been having.
I am looking forward to being back home and being with you (and the people in Oxbow) on Sunday worshipping together in English only and teaching God’s Word to hungry people with prepared hearts. Until then, please remember me in your prayers as now is the time when I will be needing an extra shot of physical energy and supernatural strength as I (and my team members) will be seriously tired mentally, physically, and spiritually.
Please also pray for a three day trip that I will be taking at the start of December to Calgary where I will also be teaching on the prophetic and ministering prophetically. At least all the material is already prepared, tested, and tired – and found to be in working order. God is good!
