Visit to Georgia
The Gift of Hospitality  

„Practice hospitality” (Rom 12:13) - News about people who are doing so.

--

It was the beginning of May. The weather was great, warm but not too hot. The president (Livija Godina) and the secretary (Aniko Ujvari) of EBWU arrived in Tbilisi to meet the Baptist Women’s group in Georgia. What a wonderful privilege to meet the sisters and to travel for meetings like this one, visits or conferences. It was such a special blessing to come closer in the Spirit and to experience the unity in Christ in spite of our differences in culture, in style of worship, yet still know that the greatest gift in our life is our salvation in Jesus Chirst, and the gift He gives as He builds us into one body, in His body, in the Church.

Georgia is a blessed, wonderful country. The nature, the fields, the lands, the gardens, the mountains in the countryside and villages are gorgeous. And above all, the spirit of the people. I may tell generally that the Georgians like to have guests, but what is more, the great hospitality the Baptist sisters and brothers give as they welcome foreigners is something to be experienced. They gave their time, and opened their hearts as they took us to visit churches, congregations mostly in East Georgia at this time. Of course we saw the difficulties in their lives, and we understood much better how to pray for them. They need prayers as they struggle to reach the people for the Lord in different ways, as they experience the pressure of the main church in their country and the difficulties in the economy.

Please, my dear sisters, come and pray together with us for this wonderful country, for these wonderful sisters and brothers in Christ to be light and salt in Georgia!

Aniko Ujvari
