WORD OF THE DAY - Friday 15 July 2011 from Mykolaiv, Ukraine

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, (Ephesians 3:20 ESV)

А Тому, Кто действующею в нас силою может сделать несравненно больше всего, чего мы просим, или о чем помышляем, (К Ефесянам 3:20 Russian)

Y á Aquel que es poderoso para hacer todas las cosas mucho más abundantemente de lo que pedimos ó entendemos, por la potencia que obra en nosotros, (Efesios 3:20 Spanish)

Most Holy and Awesome God, our Dear Father in Heaven ~ Thank you for the invigorating spark of life that awakens our mortal bodies on this new day that is pulsing with fresh opportunities to allow your love within us to shine forth to others. Grant us more of your wisdom so that we will comprehend the exceedingly great power of your Spirit who is working in the church around the world. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
Anna, one of our Advanced WEI students was the first person to study with yesterday morning. We have become friends with her and she now attends our Sunday worship on a regular basis.
Olamide was our next student of the day. Like Anna, he is an Advanced WEI student and yesterday passed the Grammar Test in Book Two of the Advanced English course. Olamide recently brought his friend Omo (also known as Elijah) and fellow student at the Shipbuilding University. Elijah is currently studying Russian language in preparation to beginning his regular studies in the fall. He completed the Introductory Lesson of WEI course and we gave him Lesson One.

Olya and Dasha came next for their studies. Dasha already completed the Intermediate Course and received her diploma. She is now studying the WEI Advanced Course with us. Then we studied with her friend Olya who has now completed all 7 lessons in Book One of the Intermediate Course.

We had about an hour of free time to make a run down to the mobile phone company to pay our bill so that we can have computer access in the office and also pay for our cell phone usage. Then after we dashed back in the heat, we got back in time to greet Luda who arrived first for our Thursday evening Bible study. Also present were our two new sisters Natasha and Elena who was baptized on Wednesday. She was very happy to show that she has marked the pages of the books of the Bible in the Russian Bible we gave her when we began to study with her. Later, our faithful brother Stepan arrived after he missed the tram that he and Luda usually ride together. We had a phone call in the evening from Pavel whose mother is very ill here in Nikolaev. He said she is not showing much improvement. Thank you for the prayers and encouragement.
