From 22nd to 24th of March Carl-Gustaf Severin, missioner and minister from the International Bible Center Livets Ord in Uppsala (Sweden), served in our church. We were looking forward to these meetings. For us, it was not just something usual but it was a meeting with the man of God and our older brother in the Lord, who has been serving us and many other churches in Ukraine for more than 20 years. Simply amazing how the Word of God penetrated and brought consolation, direction, freedom and joy in the Holy Spirit! And below you can find some information about each meeting.
The first meeting was for pastors and church leaders. Thanks to each minister, who came from other region. We were very glad to see you. We have got incredible encouragement in the presence of God. Praise God for the Holy Spirit and every minister!
The next day Carl-Gustaf taught students of the Bible School on the theme "Mission." It was a privilege and great encouragement to be taught by a teacher who is a missioner and served in 63 countries. My son told me that he was ready to go for a mission.
On the same day there was a meeting where we prayed for a healing of people. One man's legs were healed and then he started walking without any help. Some people were healed on the way home. Praise God for the healing power of the Holy Spirit, and the testimonies of people.
And on Sunday morning Carl-Gustav spoke about people behind the scenes. He spoke about people who do not usually work on stage, but they do a great and an important work in church. After the meeting Carl-Gustaf got a present. The guys from the ministry "Messenger" gave the guest clothing, that is worn by African kings. We love African people and believe God that we will continue to serve them in their homeland. Many people who have been to these meetings were greatly impressed by the Word of God and the Holy Spirit. For example, after the Sunday meeting, teenagers from our church decided to stay in the church building to share their impressions of what they heard and experienced during these days. It makes me delightful!
Also I praise God for His prophetic word! What a joy, clarity and happiness you have when God speaks to you! We have the future that is created by God! We expect the new meetings with this happy man of God. Special thanks to everyone who prepared and took part in the ministry during the conference. You are God's heroes!
