Gori, Georgia Medical Team

After no contact for a couple days, I spoke to Jeff this evening from Gori where the Baptist Medical Mission International (BMMI)has been ministering aid for several days. Check out this site if it would interest you to read a short history of Gori: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gori,_Georgia

Yesterday being Sunday, had the group in a small Georgian church right in Gori where Anatoly Krivo serves. They had two ladies give testimony and three men from the team. Three men preached, the last being Pastor Charles Johnson from Rosewood Baptist Church in Gilmer, Texas who gave a moving message called "This Same Jesus" from Acts, chapter one. Though there were no professions of faith, the service was well attended including several from clinic evangelism during previous days.

After church they went to a restaurant where they were able to experience some delightful Georgian cuisine. From there it was on to an ancient rock-hewn city. You can go here to see a great picture and read about a tour of the area that is quite fascinating for those who like to go more in depth: http://www.travel-library.com/tours/asia/georgia/tbilisi/fascinating_georgia.html

Today, Monday they saw about 100 patients and many made professions of faith working with the evangelists on the team.

Jeff said that prayer meetings with the team have been a joy and inspiration with great camaraderie and spirit. God has continued to bless the mission and Jeff is grateful to be a part of it. Tomorrow is their last day. Pray for a strong finish with honor and glory going to the Lord.
