This is the Truth Network from Honduras to the Ukraine to Romania were going everywhere today on this quick segment on Stu Epperson to talk. It's loud because there's a bunch of men praying together God's working.

We had a huge time to work this morning. It was a word were at Dario Dawson restaurant North Carolina is the Bible studies on Wednesdays is called wins in the word, a man got up and with tears in his eyes, shared his passion for the Ukraine for Romania's is Rick Reynolds and longtime friend and mentor of mine Rick real quick share. We're about to go and is much as you can see her brother and in just awaken us up like you did organizing here about what is happening on the other side of the world that we need to start. Christians need to be more involved to get back our ministry centers. About two hours south of Ukraine border and I were dealing with refugees on a daily basis, and God is open up tremendous opportunities for us and for getting all the details, but we're picking up Ukrainian orphans daily from the border and refugees as well and where in the process of building temporary housing could be permanent housing for refugees in our ministry center in LaRoche Romania and God is doing great things. If you want more information you can go to Facebook and type in team at Gloria him day and that's A.D. GLORIAM day PEI Romania and there's more information there. But God is doing great things. I posted something on our site that says do not treat these people from Ukraine like they're running from evil. Treat them like they're running the office of Christ.

You sorry for breaking down, but my heart is so moved by the devastation that these poor folks are going through and the compound pain that they have on a daily basis and come back in a second. Just I love to hear is our priest shared in a room here, 50, 60, 70 men, there were some wet eyes after he shared what he shared. You have a passion for missions and you have two men I got here along with Rick that her heart it's the same gospel, just different languages right you know the beauty of this moment is that God is so alive in the world is divided and that is roaring and even in our own country folks are vehemently divided over the gospel and yet it is the same gospel today that will draw people to Christ. We just pray for the testimonies as my Lord because these three men that were talking with right now their heart is so passionate Christ. They put everything on the line so that others can know the love of Jesus, and we heard from Rick Rick about him is the story of the blood of what happened to guys it'll blow everyone away your untruth comes drivers would introduce us to brother Moore and his other brother and whether due to hunters and was unsure little bit about their mission so brother Dave actually was an accidental meeting for me. There was a medical emergency and crisis in Honduras with hurricanes, a massive flooding in mudslides and his wife was experience in healthcare issues and his son was that some trouble getting out of through another ministry were active with emission air. We had the privilege of participating in their evacuation, then going help to minister meet their needs but we met them in an apartment at Christmas time and they blessed us with their humility and their level of service.

I know you go back to being it be not know now.

Carolyn was my mom's is your speech teacher and you are helpless around the house. An amazing guy could fix anything.

God bless you man tell us what God is doing over there that I got through and a lot of great things listeners are working hard into where in Honduras church planting and training pastors on how to use the word of God in counseling and were your marriage counseling at this a lot of great things but I want to ask you guys to pray for Honduras to pray for the people they bit we know that we've all been through the pandemic and then the hurricanes in the flooding and now possibly a small family coming up so that they're going through a lot and it's 101 verse Isaiah 4031 but they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength they shall mount up with wings as eagles they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint for the people. Hunters are going through a lot but there hanging onto Lord's upgrade to under a preponderance and come down the Mississippi. If you want. It is a scores or national score. the way over here. What a powerful verse 11 that the way over here. These two minute God met Bree Susan spell right here. Another man of God is sure serving Christ and on his way there. So this is Armando Perez and Armando became my friend because he's actually the man we named Mondo's mission afterwards and I the privilege to meet him and go on the mission field with him in Honduras for a fivefold mission. We had we had clothing we had food we had construction vacation Bible school, but most of all, we share the gospel in the streets and everywhere in Mondo here is in business and takes the profits from their business goes back and shares the gospel with his villagers and people. He grew up with in Honduras. Mondo would you just give a greeting to her listeners and tell how we can pray for you and your mission or what God is doing what I got is doing by doing, you know, say people to help people. No longer a immune help the helpless and through Mondo's misery no way be going in and given some symptom that is a some close is going to let Maureen photo we bring some Bible be given to Laura Goggin Oak, which owned awaken salvation and all things to American people you know this is a negative and that what you know this is this is a foundation of Mondo's mission you donated and we think everybody we get it ready to go. You, myself. May 16, and a group of missionary group authority wanted a week owning June 11 through June 18. Please pray for zero and give you break it only means a lot to want to go with the Mondo's Thanks.

This is a wonderful little newsletter will ministry based out of Thomasville priest. I mean, it's amazing to see it. We went wheat we knock our country, Lockerbie, and is so secular and I know there's all kinds of evil in America horse know that but you know it's still a country that sending missionaries in this guy right here is industrious and he's working with his hands, doing some pretty sophisticated engineering and mechanics, and in from that he's able to go over and in love and bring people to Jesus in Honduras.

I mean, isn't talk about how critical this is our literacy to know you know for Dave and for Mondo both these are skilled craftsmen. Dave is gifted with mechanics with with with aircraft and with building. Dave will go out and find the materials and help build and fostering pastor a church and Mondo will take is gifted is using here that he learned as a young boy came to the states and is made good and now God is taken his heart and said you have got to go back and share the gospel with those raised the beauty of this coming together as it this gospel is so real right now that I've the privilege to sit with these mighty men of God and for a year would be trying to figure out how to get these guys together and sure enough brother still brings us together Wednesday in the word and they just both said to me we need to be fed and now they can watch us on Facebook live.

They can see Wednesday in the word no matter where they are in the world and David God bless you face your ministry and in your final order one another they had to seek the Lord with all your heart out we could have all the riches in the world but only God is what matters a lot a guys here read the Bible and praying worshiping God this morning. It was in the wording also have Mondo herein. When Amanda we had him and we had to give some first-timers just Rick Reynolds. You take us home. You hear these guys is just amazing what God is doing different ethnicities different cultures different languages different societal barriers, different governments of communism you have capitalism you have democracies you have no pretty dangerous regimes, but the gospel is the power of God to salvation and never changed my brother absolutely never changes you wanted me to share the story that I shared with the men this morning and about three weeks ago we picked up 17 Ukraine orphans between the ages of nine and 14 and they had to wait 30 hours out in the weather. Without the proper clothing and it was pretty devastating.

We got them in the van and started taking them back to the shelter near or idea on the way they were crying so hard.

We did not first tears of joy are tears of pain, and we stopped to get them something warm to drink and eat and when they went to take the food and drink from us. We saw that their hands have frostbite. I'm sorry. I'm just an emotional guy in the nine of them had to have some fingers amputated due to frostbite and the devastation of that mean you're already an orphan, then your country is in siege from godless dictator from Russia and so you have to go to another country. You're stuck at the border for 30 hours and end up having frostbite. I can imagine what these kids are thinking and going through yet the gospel is shared every day to everyone and we are excited and again I'll try to say without crying.

This time do not look at these people from Ukraine as if they are running from evil, but look at them like you're running into the arms of Christ through you and that's our our goal and objective and what we do and how my standing with open arms, inviting people to Jesus wherever I am your listing like I can go to Hunter's I can go Amanda on Amanda's mission. I can go with Rick and get a bus and say these orphans from from being bombed and shellacked and bring them to care. I can go with David and go in the rain forest and then preach the gospel in particular, the medical needs but you know what you can pray for these people right now and there's a lot we can do right brother Rick absolutely in prayer is the oil that greases the wheels of the gospel, prayer, prayer, prayer, do not like Paul said to those who are giving to him.

I believe it's in the book of Philippians. He said you know your gift is great and I'm paraphrasing your gift is greatly appreciated by more than that, pray and understand that what you do and what you give towards the ministry that I'm doing will be to your reward in glory. I would have the guy that got us going to say a quick prayer is that we call priest's name is John priest is not appreciably serve the great high priest. Amen. And John pray for us as we get out of here.

We brother a quick father is truly a gift to be in your presence this morning, we thank you for brother Stu with his passion for the word, we thank you father God for the gift of the cross every other holiday would be meaningless if not for the death and resurrection of the cross, Lord Jesus, that we celebrate this coming Easter Sunday.

Lord we just pray Lord for each and every one of us has the gospel in our hearts and now maybe be faithful to stand up and share it and speak it and most of all Lord to show it with the dying in a hurting world. Lord please bless our brother Jeff speaks and Darrow's restaurants for the many ways that this is made real IQ for brother Stu for the Truth Network for the opportunities.

Thank you for brother Rick for Mondo and for Dave Lord for the gospel going out to all the world, for it is the great commission in your name we pray.
