Whats Going on in the Life of the Ward's
This Blog is my quarterly update's on what's happening in our life
I love Wales!!! This is a place I have always longed to go. I can't think of many places on the earth with the revival history that Wales has. If you don't know what I am talking about you got read up on it.
So I got here two nights ago in Blackwood and I was so happy to be staying in a home. My friend Sean Feucht gave me a contact of a church here and they where willing to host me. So I am staying with a lovely young couple named Kris and Meg and their dog Moses. He is Welsh and she is South African and the dog is collie :) It feels so good to be around Christians as it was kinda a rough place I was staying in London.
woke up to go to church. I think this may be one of the charismatic churches in Wales. It was great and I was surprised that the pastor is a woman. I also found out the other known charismatic church a ways away is also pastor'd by a Woman. I love it! Well it was a wild morning and the just so happened to have a guest speaker from Argentina. I thought it was amazing that I was in the land of revival history with someone from Argentina (where Revival is known) speaking. The people where very passionate!!!! I also realized right away I love the Welsh people. They are such great folk! After church I had dinner with another young couple and it was great! There are a lot of young couples around here. Tomorrow night a bunch are coming over to hang out with me, I am looking forward to it!
Today I made about an hour trek in the car to Loughor to find Moriah Chapel the church where Even Roberts preached and revival started in Wales. Well I am doing a lot better driving, but there was all this road construction and I got a bit lost but I finally found it. The gate was locked but I could see on the schedule that Monday's was there weekly prayer meeting and it was in a hour. So I went to a little pub and got a coffee and journal'd and waited. An hour later I walked down and went into the back of church where the graveyard was. There was Even Roberts grave where he is buried with his family. The church secretary told me a little about it and invited me in for their prayer meeting. There was about a dozen elderly Welsh people. I was given a hymnal and for the next hour we sang hymns and they prayed the most beautiful prayers. Some might think it religious, but I did not find it that way at all. I enjoyed it and the sincerity of there love and devotion to the Lord. It was a great experience. From there I made my way to Rees Howell's Bible College. I heard you can't really go on the old grounds anymore but I found an open gate and there was no people around at all, so I went in and walked the grounds. As I did these things today I prayed and asked the Lord to honor these men and many others in this generation, crying out "do it again God".
Its been a great couple days and to be in Wales is truly amazing!!! I love this little country. I could spend some real time here. The people are great and the land beautiful. I had this thought all day today, "why did the Lord choose to birth revival out of this little nation that has swept the globe?" He loves this country!!!!
