Pictured is a group of leaders from a ministry in the city of Almaty, Kazakhstan that has connections in most of the major cities of this nation. The young man on the right of the picture is the leader. His name is Almaz. I first met him last February in Turkey and promised to connect with him when next in Kazakhstan. So, a last minute schedule change allowed me to meet with his leadership team for three hours which included questions and answers, prophetic ministry to each and every one of them and a fun supper of loud fellowship. A great way to end a busy day of meetings as well as a busy 2 weeks of ministry.
Some in this group come from a Baptist background and the group’s ministry is associated with the Presbyterian Church in this area. They don’t believe in the gifts of the Spirit actually working today. But, they had so many questions and we attempted to answer them all briefly. However, we did mention that we would need to be with them for two or three days to lay a proper foundation for the gifts and a correct understanding of how they function and work both within the church and as an evangelistic tool. They agree that during my spring 2014 trip to Kazakhstan they would speak for two days of my schedule and would bring their 20+ leaders together to learn and grow in the supernatural side of the ministry.
So, with that settled and as many questions answered as time allowed we then prophesied ver all of them one at a time. Good words. Super future that Jesus has for them individually and as a group. Then we had supper together – full of great fellowship, terrific food, lots of loud laughter and ending in prayer for healing for several of the leaders.
As well, Almaz and I discussed a joint trip into Uzbekistan in the spring or early summer of 2014 and I told him it was a go. it too is a former nation of the USSR and one that God has called me to minister in. He and I had discussed this briefly when in Turkey last February. it is now in ‘nail the dates down’ stage. Please pray.
As you read this I will be somewhere halfway between Germany and Canada if the weather is good and the flights connect. Still several connections to make. Please continue to pray. Many thanks for your part in this ministry.
