TIME TO HEAD TO KYRGYZSTAN
AN UPDATE BEFORE WE LEAVE
The situation in Ukraine that continues is clearly devastating in so many ways - lives being lost, homes destroyed, dreams crushed and more. Yet the "David Spirit" shines all over the country. We see a nation rising to the call of protecting their families, their children their homes, their infrastructure, their values and their future legacy they will leave.
Goliath - the giant is being met face to face. Standing proud and strong are men, women and the young - praying, serving each other, fighting with all they have and showing love and mercy beyond the ordinary.
"He came to the door of friends of ours in Ukraine - he was alone, tired, dirty, cold, hungry and with tears in his eyes. He was an 18 year old soldier. He asked if they would please help him. They invited him in, fed him and as he warmed up they discussed how they might help him return to his Russian family safely. Yes, this was an 18 year old young man - a RUSSIAN Soldier - being helped by those he was ordered to fight - to kill - to control."
Goliath might be sending forth orders to these young soldiers, but the "David Spirit" rises above. Fighting together, serving one another, standing firm and proud, being Ukrainian, and being reminded as they see miracle after miracle that that they have NOT been forgotten or abandoned by the God of the Universe or by the world that is watching.
With each missile they see that has hit the ground and has not exploded, each missile coming that seems to have disappeared in thin air and each day that they are still standing under the Ukrainian flag, they are strengthened with the "David Spirit."
We do pray for Goliath - that he will see THE DAVID SPIRIT AND THIS WILL BE the end of the charge forward and he will forever retreat and let freedom reign. You see Goliath cannot stand against the anointing of the David Spirit.

IT ALL FEELS SO DARK
As we all watch and pray for what is happening in Ukraine, we feel in our hearts the darkness that is surrounding the world and especially what is deeply impacting all our hundreds of Ukrainian friends both in Ukraine in in other countries. The sadness permeates our inner being beyond what words can express.
Here with our LAMb Team, we continue to work in the calling of LAMb, and experience questions, what do we do, what can we do, how can we focus on anything but Ukraine and what is happening there? We have sent funds, called friends, prayed and prayed, talked via whatsapp to those in Ukraine and kept in contact with many - hearing their hearts, their fears and just knowing we are WEAK to respond with the right words that might ease their fears and concerns.
It is their MOTHERLAND - a land they call home - where their families have proudly toiled to develop the land, the nation and their family legacy for future generations. What does this now mean? Oh Lord - be merciful and bring Ukraine to it's fullest glory! Amen.
