Saturday noon: Greetings from the Atlanta airport, where I’m en route to Lexington, KY. I’m doing the weekend services at Church of the Savior in Nicholasville, KY. It will be my first time to meet my hosts and to be at this church. The pastor contacted me because of his connection with my books, I think especially Secrets. They have four services: today at 5:00 pm, then Sunday at 8:30, 10:15, and 11:55. 40 minutes is available each service for the message. I have prepared my heart to speak on how God writes a story with our lives. I’m looking forward to it.
Unfortunately, there is a delay in my Atlanta-Lexington flight. It’s showing a 90-minute delay right now, and hopefully the delay will not grow any longer because of the 5:00 p.m. meeting today.
On another note, my assistant Marie has asked for prayer regarding our ongoing attempts to procure a visa to Russia. If we get the visa we’re applying for, it would give me access to Russia for 3 years, which would be just awesome. But the roadblocks to getting this 3-year visa, or any visa for that matter, or considerable. Russia requires that I get a specific kind of religious visa, since I’m speaking in churches, and that kind of visa is troublesome in its processes. One Russian agent Marie called abruptly said, “We don’t process that visa” and hung up on her. So we need the Lord’s help. Thanks for putting some prayer muscle into that one.
On another note, I’m pleased to say that we finally received our sample copies of our three books that have been printed in Polish: SECRETS, FIRE OF DELAYED ANSWERS, and BETWEEN THE LINES. Please bless these translations in prayer. Pray a special blessing on the publisher, because they are laboring to spread the Gospel in a small market that is economically challenged. Let’s ask the Lord to bless their ministry mightily!
Sunday 5:30 p.m.: Greetings from the Lexington airport, where our incoming craft was delayed. But it’s looking like I will get to Atlanta in time to make my connecting flight to Kansas City.
I had a marvelous weekend at Church of the Savior. Just excellent saints. So easy to minister to. They pulled it out of me. And showed so much affection and appreciation for the ministry. I hope it’s not my last time with them.
