The trip began on Friday as Lizzy and Josh left early to minister at the Foursquare Church in Bühl on Sunday. They had the opportunity to connect with Brandon and Marcie Brazee, our missionaries to Bühl, Germany as they prepared for the rest of the team to arrive.
The remainder of the team gathered in Calgary, AB on Saturday to get to know one another, prep, have dinner, and join together at the Cornerstone church in Calgary before departure. We were honored to have the church pray over us! Barry Marsten, Rocky Mountain Prairie Unit Supervisor, anointed us with oil and spoke a powerful word over our team prior to our Sunday evening flight.
Since we have arrived we have connected with our hosts, Brandon and Marcie Brazee. We have been receiving orientation, building relationships, praying, and preparing for the ministry we will be doing in the Ukraine. On Thursday, we will accompany the Brazees to the European Foursquare Convention in Kyiv, Ukraine. Our main responsibility will be to facilitate a Vacation Bible School during the convention for the children that will attend.
When we are not overseeing children's ministry, we will be connecting with the church in Europe, and working on some filming projects.
The team is coming together nicely and we are pleased to see how the giftings of each individual are complimentary to each one of the other team members.
We appreciate your continued prayers as we pack up tomorrow evening for more air travel on Thursday. Pray that our ministry supplies would arrive, for safety and health for the team, and for fruitful and effective ministry during our time in Kyiv.
