Traveling to USA

November 9th, 2010 | Category Church activities

Each year pastor Saulius Karosas goes on fund raising trip to the states. For a month in the late autumn he travels overseas to see our supporters and friends from different churches. This year there was great question whether our church will have enough finances to pay for this important trip. Nonetheless we all prayed and the Lord answered this need with abundance. Saulius’ brother decided to pay for the trip and to travel with him to the states.

The next surprise that came was the sudden decision by one of the elders, Garret Gilliland to join in this journey. We were having our Tuesday meeting when our administrative coordinator, Valdemaras Bajoras mentioned that somebody had made an interesting donation. He discovered a sum of money in an envelope that had written on it, “should go for Garret trip or for the renovations of Mana.” All the team was quite surprised because as far we knew Garret was not planning to go anywhere, but quickly the decision for him to join the trip.

In the middle of the week Saulius Karosas, Artūras Karosas, and Garret Gilliland left the Lithuanian soil and flew to the other side of the ocean. Saulius and his brother will stay in the states till October 23rd, while Garrett till 17th. During this time many meetings have been planned with almost no days for rest. During this time they will meet leaders from different churches such as: Saddleback, Christ Community, Quail Lakes Baptist Church, and etc. They will also visit: Business Men’s Fellowship, Leadership Prayer Breakfast committee, Spice, and Christian Business Men’s Committee.

During this time the prayer team and disciples evening group will be praying for their safe and successful journey.
