After the USA choir, Kevin Albright delivered a graceful and powerful message entitled, “Remain in me” (John 15). His message encouraged all to remain in Jesus, in his word and in his love till we meet again bearing much fruit in CIS for the kingdom of God and all around the world!
Around 370 members came to the conference (Around 230 from 7 CIS nations, about 70 from US, Canada, Germany and Korea and around 70 CBF, MBF and HBF members). 9 Ukraine coworkers became a great source of encouragement to all by their faith that overcame the national conflicts. We saw the kingdom of God is nearly over the all the worldly kingdom.
Morning devotion: The title of S. Sergey’s (St. Petersburg) message was “Your Kingdom Come” (Mt 6:9-13) from the Lord’s Prayer. This was Jesus’ prayer topic. When Jesus reigns in our heart we are full of love, peace, joy and light. Sergey went back and forth between two kingdoms, but now he firmly decided to belong to God’s kingdom and prays that “God’s kingdom come to all CIS.”
We thank you so much for your prayer for CISBC 2014. The kingdom of God mightily comes and reigns in our hearts through the messengers and heart touching life testimonies and all other whole heartedly prepared music and programs. Here are some high lights for you to see and pray all the more.
The 2014CIS International Summer Bible Conference in Moscow is coming soon around the corner. Local native leaders divided in working groups are working hard to prepare the conference. Although they are full of enthusiasm to serve the conference and make it perfect, they still need our much prayer support since they lack experience.
