Update 4 – Jim Liljegren – Russia/Europe
Dear Praying Team,
Here is the delayed message from Jim in Saransk. His first meeting with Maxim apparently went well and he is joining the team for Summer missions, see below:
NEXT UPDATE…WE ARE NOW IN SARANSK. I HAVE 7 APPOINTMENTS TODAY. THE FIRST ONE WAS MAXIM, WHOSE PASTOR FATHER DIED AT AN EARLY AGE SOME YEARS AGO. MAXIM REBELLED AGAINST GOD FOR YEARS…HE JUST REPENTED 2 WEEKS AGO. WHEN WE SAW EACH OTHER TODAY, HE CRIED ON MY SHOULDER FOR A LONG TIME. I LOVE THIS GUY AND HAVE NEVER GIVEN UP ON HIM. HE IS 24 AND WANTS TO BE A YOUTH LEADER. HE WILL JOIN OUR PSKOV AND PETRO TEAMS THIS SUMMER.
LOVE TO ALL,
JIM AND TEAM
This was the last message I have received from Jim. Please continue to pray.
The last post on Dave Anthold’s blog http://everydaysnapshots.com was on the 3rd of April.
They may still be in Saransk or on train or plane to Prague to meet up with Mike, Tienette and Pastor Gennady.
Pray for safe travels (No More Thugs!) and for good planning meetings in Prague.
Praying for you to be blessed as you meet the Lord in prayer.
