Our trip to Slovakia

We just got back (in the middle of the night ;) - from our trip to Slovakia.

It was the most amazing time!! We were with two fellowships from the Catholic Church - one from the monastery where we stayed, and one from Bratislava - right in the other end of the country.

We started off with a weekend retreat together in a hotel about an hour away. These guys know how to worship! It was wonderful to get to know them; to be with them as they worshipped; and to see the Lord show up the way only He can! The presence of the Lord was so strong. It was an incredible time!

Then on Sunday night we made our way back from the retreat back to the monastery in Podolinec.

Every month on the first Sunday of the month, the fellowship that meets in the monastery hosts a worship night for people all over Slovakia. Around a thousand people show up every time, and this Sunday was no exception!! - there was standing room only, all the way up to the altar at the front.

To lead worship with the team there, in a church that had been built in 1642, with people who had come from all over the country (many had driven 6 - 7 hours to be there), was absolutely humbling!

I'm so grateful to Bohus and Rasto fro inviting us to come - and for being wonderful friends!!

I'm also so entirely grateful to the Lord that He is behind every detail - from the time and places that we meet people, to the deep connection that happens between hearts when we are joined by one vision, and one passion for Him!

Hi Kathryn
This is David Hadden here from Leicester. I wanted to say how much we are enjoying your songs. Also, could you please pass on my regards to your dad. I did a live worship recording in Hillsborough about 10 years ago and was reading your details yesterday and realize that we really do live in a small world.

Enjoy reading of your travels and what God is doing. Received your Focusfest live cd and love it. You will never know how much the song "I belong" and the spontaneous prophetic singing after it have helped to build me up. Thanks sister. Hopefully hear you live one day (if you ever make the land of the haggis)!

Your sister in Christ
