After all the intense ministry in Latvia and Israel I flew to the USA for meetings in Florida, the first of which was at the River of Life, Merritt Island with Pastor Mark Berney. That was an extra special meeting with the Lord ministering to so many needy people. The next Sunday saw me in Jacksonville preaching at the River Church with Pastor Phil Ward. These dynamic people wanted to be more equipped to reach their communities more effectively.
I then flew to Massachusetts to minister to the gracious congregation at the Living Hope family Church, Hyannis MA with Pastor Erik Eskelund. What a sweet time of ministry and fellowship that was. On the Monday evening I so enjoyed the Home Meeting with John & Linda Andrewski in Mashpee, Cape Cod. The neighbours and locals came as well as people from many miles away.
I then flew to Philadelphia to minister at the New Jerusalem Christian Church. Their pastor, Doug Linser, was in Latvia at that time teaching in the youth camps, orphanages and prisons, while I enjoyed preaching at their Saturday evening service. . . .
Immediately afterwards I drove 4 hours to Williamsport Pennsylvania to preach at the Williamsport CityChurch with Pastor Larry Stout (a very effective missionary and apostle to Latvia in the past). The next night I enjoyed teaching he folk on using the gifts of the Holy Spirit in their evangelism. Then it was 4 hours back to New Jersey for a great meeting at the New Life Community Church with Tom & Rosa Kozinsky. Their worship is something very special
Then I flew to Illinois for an extremely fruitful series of meetings arranged by my wonderful hosts Steve and Janet Eddington, the first being a Men’s Breakfast at the House of Prayer, Bloomington. The fellowship with these dedicated men was wonderful indeed. I then drove across state to the Latter Rain Fellowship, Danville with Pastors Don & Chris Prouty. What an excellent Sunday meeting we had. The children here have baked and sold many cakes to send the funds to the orphanages. Well done indeed.
On the Monday night Ken & Pam Cooley held their traditional Outreach Dinner in Ogden. These dinner meetings keep getting bigger, better and more impacting over the years we’ve been doing them, with people travelling for many miles to be there. The Jesus House, Bloomington with Pastors Tom & Bonnie Lentz who minister to the poor and homeless of the area, is a very special ministry of compassion and healing. It was great sharing with these special people. The final Sunday I was hosted by Harvest Church, Urbana with Pastors Jon & Deb Callahan.
