How Great is Our God, Hallelujia

I was listening to worship music last night on line. I was looking for a couple that had recorded the worship music for the "Revival Down Under" in the 1990s. I found their CD but didn't find any youtube videos of them, nor did I find out their names. However, I've always liked the worship group, Hillsong and the worship style of, Darlene Zschech. I wanted to share this song with you where they sing part of the songs in Russian.

I understand that Darlene Zschech and her husband have moved on from Hillsong Church in Sydney, Australia after 25 years there. They are now senior pastors at Hope Unlimited Church on the Central Coast.

Today I also want to acknowledge that the late Internal Security Minister, George Saitoti, of Kenya was laid to rest at his Kitengela farm.  The Hon. Saitoti, and his assistant, Joshua Orwa Ojodeh were killed in a helicopter crash in Ngong Forest earlier this week as they were carrying out the functions of their ministry. I was able to watch a good part of the service on line as it was televised through several news agencies in Kenya.

The accident occurred on Sunday minutes after they had taken off from Wilson Airport in a new police helicopter, heading for a fundraiser in Mr Ojodeh’s Ndiwa constituency.  A high powered government delegation, led by President Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga, paid their last respects.  The late minister has been eulogised as a “hero, patriot, team player and a voice of reason” during a requiem mass at the Holy Family Basilica, Nairobi Friday.

My thoughts and prayers are with the families of these two honourable gentlemen who gave their lives in the service of their beloved country, Kenya.

Don't forget to tell your loved ones that you love them. Only God knows how long each of us has on this earth.  Be blessed.
