Refugees in Greece

We have a team working in Greece with refugees!  Here’s a story from their outreach:

Our group was invited to dinner and an evening gathering with the ministry we were staying with. They serve the homeless and addicts in the area, and there were about 15-20 people there that night. We were asked to share, sing, and possibly give a small message at the end.  We worshipped with them as they sang in Greek, and though the languages were different, Holy Spirit began to move!  Our team was introduced to the group, and then, Mariella, Rachel, and Julian (some of our students) led the room in a few worship songs.  Then, Bryce (another student) shared a testimony that ended with how much the love of Jesus had completely changed his life!  The story he shared about his experiences was honest and detailed but filled with the redeeming love of Jesus.  It was clear that Holy Spirit was present and moving in the room!  Tor (the team leader) then spoke more on Jesus’ love and the power He gives us to walk in freedom.  He asked the group if anyone felt a tug on their heart as Bryce was sharing.  Elias (the host) prayed in Greek and asked if anyone would like to accept Jesus, and FOUR stood up and were saved that night!

The love of Jesus is so transforming!  God is moving powerfully among refugees!  Please continue to pray for the team as they finish their outreach, ministering in Italy!
