Thieves and Drought - No Match for Prayer
When we visited last September, Barskoe was faced with a dismal potato harvest. It was the second year in a row they lost the mainstay for the winter months. The previous year's crop had been stolen from the ground. This year they suffered a drought for 74 days.
We traveled to the potato field to ask God to bless the next year's crop. We prayed over the fields as the Russian harvesters stopped and watched.
When we returned to Russia in February, Director
Alex raised his hand to heaven and proclaimed, "It rained the next day...I
knew it was your God!" Again, we wait.
The wait is over! The crop is in.
E-mail and photos have arrived...
The crops of those who watched from their fields on either side, as we stood and prayed, failed. We are rejoicing and thanking God for His faithfulness, as our "little band of merry adventurers" strive to hear His voice and walk in faith.
But most of all, we are honored to call all of you Partners in Faith.
