I have a feeling that I blink, and another season is here. It feels like it was just yesterday that I returned from my last trip to Cuba, and today I find myself less than two months away from my next trip. But before I dive into all the exciting details about my upcoming trip, I wanted to share with you about some opportunities that God blessed me with over the past months.
In the beginning of October, I had an amazing opportunity to visit my old pastors and mentors Roger and Myrna Eilers in Saint Paul, Minnesota. I met Pastors Roger and Myrna 25 years ago in Minsk, Belarus where they served as missionaries. We lost contact when I moved to Canada, but we were able to reconnect via social media 6 years ago. It’s been such a blessing to have them as my wise counsel over the last years, and it was absolutely incredible to spend 6 days with them last week and to see them live out their faith in everyday life.
While in Minnesota, I was also able to attend a Global Legacy Leadership meeting. I was blessed, refreshed and strengthened in my spirit during the two days of soaking in God’s presence and the wisdom of His word. The teaching of the guest speaker Steve Backlund spoke to so many areas in my life and ministry and brought more clarity to what God is doing in my personal life and in His Kingdom.
God had another surprise for me during my trip to Minnesota as I was honored to meet Kristen D’Arpa, the author of the Kingdom Culture curriculum*** that I am currently teaching in Cuba. We got to spend some time together, and it was great to hear Kristen’s heart about this innovative and life-changing approach to teaching Kingdom principles.
*** Kingdom Culture is an intensive Bible-based curriculum and is designed to root individuals in their identity, ground them in Kingdom mindsets, and equip them to confidently live a supernatural lifestyle. Topics Include: Kingdom Concepts Throughout Biblical History, Kingdom Mindsets, Foundational Principles, Bible Study, Inner Healing, Evangelism, Spiritual Gifts, Hearing God’s Voice, Physical Healing, Kingdom Creativity, Societal Transformation, and More!
My next trip to Cuba is planned for Nov 29 to Dec 6, 2018
I feel that God is calling me to step even further out of my comfort zone and to hold TWO Kingdom Culture seminars over the course of this week. I have previously established relationship with both churches. I know that this seminar will be a huge blessings for their newly established congregations as they are so hungry for God.
In addition to teaching the seminars, I will be providing some practical support to the pastors and church leadership by supplying them with hard to obtain Spanish Study Bibles and other teaching materials.
