Sunday was my first day here in this city. And we have hit the road running. Arriving at 11:00a after a 2+ hour drive it was straight into the morning service video-linked into three other areas of the building as the numbers were too large for the sanctuary. Then a lunch with the elders and their wives. Following this we switched buildings (another church uses their building in the late afternoon) and had a leaders meeting for three and a half hours – with about 50+ leaders present.
At both of the meetings I taught and prophesied.
In the morning service I was able to prophesy over Elijah and called him out as a “prophet-in-training.” He was also in the afternoon leaders meeting learning to prophesy. It is good to see young people stepping up and becoming involved.
After the second session I headed out to eat with two young men I called out as apostles almost two years ago and who live and minister in the area. Great to touch base, clear up a matter or two, and begin with a fresh slate. It was a seriously enjoyable night.
Tuesday (today) is filled with meetings – a leaders meeting (50+ people) from 10:00 to 2:00. This is followed by lunch from 2:00 to 4:00 during which time I am answering questions that the three elders of the church have. Then a bit of a walk and rest before the 6:00 to 9:00 public service which will include teaching and the prophetic (fairly routine).
I think the later evening is free and that would be good as it will be shower and head to the airport. Sleep will continue to be in short supply. I need to check in at 1:00a on Wednesday morning and then face 33 hours of flights and airports. Please continue to pray for all aspects of the trip as it quickly draws to a close … All going well I will be home late Wednesday night.
There will be no “apostolic trip” blog on Wednesday … regular blogs missing this week due to internet issues will be up again on Friday….
