Part of the privilege of being led by the Holy Spirit is to accomplish the Lord’s exploits as a team. This year for the first time during the Feast of Tabernacles, we crossed the Jordan River. We have ministered in Jordan many times but never during Succot (Tabernacles). Our team took the oil of joy of the Feast of Tabernacles, and with the help of Operation Blessing, we staged a feast and outreach for 300 Iraqi Christian refugees in a church near Amman. Besides the nutritious meal, each family was provided with a large bag of food staples.

The children stole our hearts. They and their families have suffered the loss of all things. . . except the Saviour.
