Russian Christmas Day ... С Рождеством!

Short update from Russia...
(I'm writing this blog entry from my mobile phone)

After a conference with P. Schaller and the pastors & saints from all over Russia & Ukraine we celebrate Christmas today with the church in St. Petersburg Russia. There was a service, worship led by Matt ("baby") Roberge and then a desert fellowship. P. Vladislav from Turkmenistan, P.Misha from Kaliningrad, P. Tolik from Uzhgorod & P. Yura from Almaty were there and there we rapped with a beautiful group of Russians for several hours. The time was precious as we spoke of His Name and His Anointing. We certainly had a visitation from God during the conference. Shortly after desert we all ventures out into -10 degrees snowey weather and did outreach at Dvorsky Pl the center of St Petersburg where there were festivites and thousands of thousands if people gathered at a special Christmas presentation. (See photo below).

I preached today on Joshua 5 that any blessing we posses now is because we made hard decisions by faith in honor of Jesus Christ and His promises. As soon as the Israelites crossed the Jordan they were eating of the fruit of the promised land. God wants us to eat of the fruit of the decions we make by faith in His Grace Promises. Though the Istaelites didn't know it - the Canaanites were afraid of them Josh 5.1-3.

But they didn't stop there, in the face of their victory passing into the promised land they could see only a few miles away the next faith adventure: "Jericho".

We are called and led by Promises not by Law. By the Law we posses nothing but by faith in Grace we posses our possesions and experience all that God has for us.

Thank You for your prayers. Will write next week.

In Him,

P.Alexai, & me in Dvorsky Pl St. Petersburg Russia.
