Greetings from beautiful Lesvos!
As some of you may already know, sadly our team leader and visionary Morris wasn’t able to join us for this leg of the trip due to visa issues. However, we all have peace that God is in control. We sense that God’s purpose for these two weeks in Lesvos is rest and renewal in His Presence before launching into the next big ‘battle’! (We feel we may be encountering a lot of spiritual warfare in Cyprus, but God wants us to fight from a place of rest in Him :))
In spite of Morris not being here, we have been really encouraged that God is clearly speaking the same thing to His global body, of His heart in the times and seasons we are in!
Yesterday morning, one of the crew members shared an impression he had - that 2020 is going be a significant year globally, especially in the Middle East! He mentioned the sense he had that we are ‘coming back full circle’ with the gospel coming back from the ends of the earth to the Middle East and Jerusalem! It’s time to surf the next wave of God’s move :)
Later that day we met with a team from the Athens House of Prayer and some Iranian refugees (new believers). We went up a small hill overlooking camp Moria - which currently houses about 20,000 refugees - and worshiped and interceded for Moria.
I was really moved by the passion and sincerity of the Iranian believers as they worshipped and prayed - the true heart of worship! It reminded me of Jesus’ conversation with the Samaritan woman by the well - a time is coming and has now come where true worshippers will worship the Lord in Spirit and in Truth! John 4:23
During the time of worship someone mentioned 2 Chronicles 7:14 - the very same verse as was highlighted in Rome!
Thank you so much for your continued prayer support. Please pray for God’s wisdom and strategies over the next couple of weeks leading into Cyprus, as well as for rest and renewal in His presence. And that Morris will be able to rejoin us in Cyprus!
