Its been two weeks since I last blogged about the work of the mission to Antigua. Its been a time of a little frustration but some victories also. I have been quietly working away and following the pattern of the Apostle Paul. Spending time in prayer, time talking to people and time seeking out the resources I believe the Lord wants me to find and use.
So what has happened? Firstly I have been blessed with a core group to begin to build with. A group of five people of which four are men and one is a woman. Its not the extent of the group, but it is a place to start isn't it? Last weekend we were supposed to meet up, and I got all kind of excuses why different members couldn't make it. As is human, I felt a little frustration, but decided to simply yield to the Lord's will. The thing is, that was a night of great victory as I was able to speak directly into a number of lives and one of them was baptised in the precious name of Yahoshuah the very next day.
So sometimes, it may seem as though the enemy is getting the glory, but the Lord always wins and always gets the glory if we simply believe. It was a great encouragement to me. I am sure the Lord has a lot more to deliver for our mission, so do continue to pray and support. If you would like to give to this mission, go to www.missionstoeurope.org and give there.If you would like to come on mission, contact me via email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally if you would like to pray for us, pray for the following:
1 Pray for our core group to be united, effective and efficient at establishing the church
2. Pray for our new converts to be established in the Lord
3. Pray for us to find an appropriate building to initiate our activities
4. Pray for Elohim's protection, direction and wisdom for the mission.
Thank you in advance - Blessings - Dr Udennis
Well, we've come to the end of another week. A week not dominated by missions, but by the release of my book, "God (Elohim) is a black man. I had my birthday this week and at the same time took the opportunity to release my book at a milestone in my life.
The response was most interesting. Some came out in support instantly and that was refreshing. Some unfortunately like expected instantly misunderstood and had no intention of checking anything but stuck to their guns that tradition was definitely right and God had to be white man in manifestation.
Then there were those who are already awakened and looking for more to feed that awakening and those that are curious and want to check what I have to say. These final two groups are the ones that I appreciate the most. The awakened and the almost awakened.
I do however want to thank everyone for their feedback both positive and negative. For even in negative feedback or controversy is an excitement that fuels debate and gets some people to have a look who would have passed it by. Yes the mission to the Islands has taken on a new dimension.
I have now started my next book and hope to finish it real soon. Keep praying for me and my family. Pray the book will penetrate the darkness of ignorance and bring the light of understanding. Pray that during this time of revelry in the islands that I will be prepared for the next phase of the mission and find a building. Thank you for your prayers!
