We have now finished our 24-hour retreat with Chris Haynes' church, the Prague Christian Fellowship. It was a powerful time of teaching and prayer ministry. We had about 50 people in attendance, who represented numerous nations. In our teaching, Kristine Rand and I focused on recognizing the influence of our family and national background in forming our presuppositions as to whether God exists, whether He can communicate with us, and whether we can know Him personally. Then we taught on spiritual gifts and on how we can cooperate with the Holy Spirit in ministry. After the fourth teaching session, we had a time of prayer outside. Then, we went down to the river, and the Prague Christian Fellowship pastor, John Mullen, baptized four people in the Moldau River. One was British, one was Filipino, one was Indian, and the fourth was from Kyrgyzstan -- two men and two women.
Our team is doing well. We had minimal problems with jet lag, and are doing a lot more walking than we planned to. Terry's knee has been a problem, especially climbing up and down the stairs to and from the fourth-floor walk-up "flat" where we three men are staying while in Prague. Please pray for healing for him. Tomorrow, we will all have a role in the worship service. I will be preaching, Susan and Natt will be performing worship songs, and Kristine and Terry will be doing prayer ministry.
