Evangelist Asbjørn Skjortnes and Pastor Leonid Filimonov

From the 14th to 17th of August, 2008 evangelist Asbjorn Skjortnes and pastor Leonid Filimonov visited Lithuania and Ukraine.

Leonid Filimonov is the pastor of the Living Word Church in Yourmala in Latvia. He has his heart in reaching new people with the gospel and has been opening doors for the gospel of grace, both in Latvia, Lithuania and Ukraine.

It was with great anticipation we went to visit these churches. The first church we visited was a Pentecostal church in Vilnius, Lithuania. Then we visited churches in the towns Slavuta and Peremishel in Ukraine.

The focus of these meetings has been to proclaim Jesus’ finished work on the cross and the Lord confirmed His Word of grace with signs following.

Many people were saved and testified of healings.

At all the places we visited there were a great hunger and anticipation to the Lord. It was wonderful to feel the joy and enthusiasm for the Gospel. In total, about 30 people were saved and added to the churches.

Many testified of healing from the pains in the back, neck, hips and legs. Several visually impaired also testified that they saw clearly after prayer.

I would also mention a man in the church in Slavuta, who was paralyzed on one side and the mobility impaired, he testified to complete healing by prayer. We rejoice in God’s infinite mercy and goodness because of what He has done to the people!
