After a long 22 hours day, we had our 6 hours of sleep to wake up in the morning and prepare ourselves for today’s schedule. I shall brief you about 4 major events happened today:
- Morning home meeting
- Youth Meeting with Pastor Youn @ Jung Dong Church
- World Mission Training Lecture @ Kangnam Church
- Meeting with a group of Missionaries
So let us get started with this journal.
1. Morning Home Meeting:
This time it is quite different. On Saturday’s there are not early morning prayer meetings, as the Yoido Full Gospel Church has the Friday late prayer night until early morning. And since during the weekdays all families are at work, so the best ways to sit around as a family is on a Saturday. Therefore, today, Kim, the Kang family (the kind people who are hosting Kim and I), and I sat down for a lovely morning prayer where I shared a message on how to stay connected with God through prayers, trust and faith. Our gathering was ended by a call to action prayer by Kim.
2. Youth Meeting with Pastor Youn @ Jung Dong Church:
Now that we are all warmed up, Kim and I headed for a 2 hours subway and bus trip to reach the location of the Jung Dong Church. Where we had a meeting with some youth that are “Mission Minded” … Pastor Youn is one of the pioneers in his church to initiate a “World Mission” department to put the love of mission in the youth of today. We shared a powerful message to engage these youth on keeping the humble heart while communicating with God, and serving Him. But again, as time was running, we had to flee very fast in order to catch up our subway.
3. World Mission Training Lecture @ Kangnam Church:
After 1h30, we literary RAN to reach the lecture on time. As this is a lecture to equip the missionaries with more information about the situation in the Middle East as a whole. Culturally, Socially and Spiritually!
There was around 150 missionaries equipping themselves to travel to several places in the world for different mission purposes. we sang a ‘Afra7ou yasou3 7arrarani’ and ‘7inama adnou min koddsika’ , and with a laughter we shared a lecture.
What was really fun this time, that after we’ve finished the lecture the following statement was made:
This was the best / funniest lecture we’ve ever heard on this subject!
Praise God for His Glorious work and Grace… Amen
4. Meeting with a group of Missionaries:
After the lecture finishes, we had a nice Chinese dinner with 4 missionaries getting ready to come over lebanon this July 2012. They will be in Lebanon to explore the Culture, Society, help kids, and most of all worship the Lord with the church in Lebanon.
Therefore, I’d like you to start praying for this team’s flight, as it is a long journey to achieve. Pray so may the Lord fulfill His purpose for their life’s through this trip. Amen
As always, something interesting happens on the streets. I shall let the pictures speak for themselves:
Finally my brother and sisters in Lebanon, and to all the readers in the world. As another journey passes by, the more I experience the power of God in this country.
Kindly pray for Kim & I, as our journeys are physically exhausting. We need your prayers and the power of The Holy Spirit! Thank you all for your support and encouragements!
Have a blessed day Everyone,
Jesus’ Obedient Servant,
