How do I begin to describe a most amazing conference? How do I begin to describe the power and the moving of our Great and Almighty God? If I were to describe the theme of the preaching of the word, I would have to say it was a message to prepare the body of Christ to overcome the devil in a final assault on the strongholds of darkness that holds our souls in bondage; yes, there are still areas of darkness in the believers that we cannot carry with us into His pure and holy kingdom. There was much teaching on the makeup and workings of the soul, as well as many practical ways of how to win the war in our everyday lives. It was truly an international conference with brethren coming from America, Nigeria, Switzerland, Hungary, Uganda, Ethiopia, Canada and London to the mountains of Northeastern (Moravia) of the Czech Republic, the same location as last year. The world that we know is changing so rapidly that we can hardly comprehend; the day of the Lord, the day of great tribulation is moving upon us very fast. But my own description would fall short of perfection, so I have asked others to give their portrayal of the week long conference.
Brother Jim Cassell shares:
Some thoughts concerning the Czech conference. The worship was dynamic. There seemed to be no struggle or resistance, just a compulsive entering in by all. It was uplifting. I know everyone was blessed. The word all flowed together with a theme on overcoming the darkness within and baptism into Christ. I have never seen the word so broken down into practical understanding, and simple ways to daily walk it out in everyday life. These truly were the cooks in the kitchen preparing the 1,000 #s of food for the wedding feast. Tremendous conference! I personally was extremely enriched. The energy in the meetings was like none other I have experienced. We are truly being prepared for the difficult days to come. Prepare to meet thy God, O Israel. Amos 4:12 Bro. Jim
Brother Mark Giegerich writes:
We are so very blessed as to how the Lord had moved during the last three weeks in Europe, principally in Germany and the Czech Republic. We flew into Prague on a Wednesday morning with plans to leave that Friday and drive to Germany for a weekend of meetings. We arrived in late afternoon and had a light dinner there with the German brethren before going into the meeting. There were seven of us from the States and also brother Jokes and his wife, Iffy, from Nigeria. From the onset, the Lord began to speak his Word. The praise and worship was truly anointed of the Lord. I know it had to speak to the German brethren. The prophetic ministry also had words to individuals as well. We arrived back at Tursko, Czech Republic Sunday night to await others coming in from the States as well as other countries, to then join us for the week long meetings that were to begin that following Sunday. I will note that we had a workday that Saturday where all the different brethren came together to help out on various projects at the church building where brothers Martin and Radek live.
On Sunday, we proceeded to drive into Moravia up to where the Czech conference meetings were to be held. This was a very beautiful resort nestled in the mountains. The meetings began with the tone being set by the prophetic ministry which led into a week long series of meetings very much anointed of the Lord. It was really amazing seeing the word compared to a scarlet thread weaving a fine tapestry. Each meeting would build upon the previous. And again, the praise and worship was much anointed as well. The last night’s meeting was set in stone by the prophetic ministry. It ended but was picked up again by the Spirit of the Lord which resulted in another four hours of personal ministry and praise with God indeed putting His exclamation point upon the week.
Overall, it was a very tremendous trip. I believe God answered many prayers as well as His ministry to each and everyone. Praise God. Bro Mark G.
Dear Reader, if you are anywhere near to the Czech Republic next year at this same week, providing the Lord yet tarries, I would try to attend this most excellent conference. Again our thanks go out to the many that have held the conferences and the traveling ministries in prayer before the Lord. We were surely aware of the undergirding of the prayer support.
