It‘s already my 3rd week in Israel, and with every day I like more and more to stay there. And it’s not only because that in Lithuania is winter, and in Israel hot, that’s not truth – now in Jerusalem is quit cold and rainy. I’m very confident, that this joy in my heart is because that God called me in to this land.
In the during of 3 weeks I travelled a lot – I was in Nazareth, on the Sea of Galilee, in the city Rishon Le Zion and in Bethlehem. But is a special grace to stay in Jerusalem. Already several times, I felt the same feeling – when I leaving for few days to another place I missing Jerusalem, thinking about this very special city, and willing to come back. I remember when in the first days for me became alive these words from the Bible: “Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem!” (Psalms 122:2). Before these words for me was only theory, but now this is reality.
First 10 days I tried to record radio programs, but it looks, that someone blocking that. From one side I understand, that if you want to record program and to see the open heart of believer, in the beginning you need to build the trust. But from another side it was like some invisible powers blocking all possibilities to record. Then I realized that – I just shortly prayed and commanded to all demonic spirits to go out from my recordings. And the miracle happened – in the during of one week I recorded 6 radio programs “From death to Life”. This story one more time confirming me words of Jesus:
Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you (Luke 10:19)
This weekend I was for 2nd time in the city Rishon Le Zion, and visited Russian speaking Messianic church. This congregation was started just half year ago, and from that time 50 people was born again there. Very big grace is with leaders of this church, and I’m so thankful to God, that this weekend I recorded 2 radio programs, with the testimonies of pastor Igor Grossman. In the end of this month we planning with him go to rehab center, and at 30th of December in this congregation it will be worship night, where I lead worship. At this event together with me will play brothers from Latvia Kaspars Ezerins (guitar) and Ivars Schwalbe (clarinet). Together with this amazing brothers in my home on the Mount of Olives we planning to record acoustic album of my songs in Lithuanian and in English.
So, as you see in Israel I’m quite busy. I rejoicing that I can walk a lot – every day I going on foot about 5 km. That’s making good influence to my health. I feel very good physically, and I think that I lost weight, but I don’t know how much kilos, because we don’t have scales in the home.
Life in Israel is much more expensive than in Lithuania. Anyway I believe, that I can do everything that God put into my heart. I know that this journey not for accumulation of information, but for inner transformation. I really have in my heart to know God much closer, and to find myself in Him. I desire to gain experience from my traveling around Israel and make deeper understanding of God’s Word in those places where many Bible events happened. I want to bless listeners of radio station XFM with very special testimonies from Promised Land and to be the part of soul harvest.
If your heart is beating for the missions, and maybe you also want to go somewhere, but now you don’t have possibilities – I’m your hands and feet. As is written in John 4:36-37:
And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. For in this the saying is true: ‘One sows and another reaps.’
I’m so thankful for all sowers, who sow already and who will sow in the future. I appreciate your prayers and financial support. I praying that God will make you stronger and bless you in all areas of your life.
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. (2 Cor 9:8)
With love in Christ,
