Friday, September 30, 2016: Ginger and I went by the Verizon Phone Store to purchase her a phone; hers was lost. The lady who waited on us was very helpful, kind and professional. Ginger wanted the new I Phone, an update from what she had. I told this young lady that she was a professional and good at what she did. As we were leaving the lady escorted us to the door. As we were exiting the door I asked her if she knew Jesus; immediately tears came to her eyes and said yes. She was going through a hard time; she had a child from a bad relationship. She had lived in Oakland, California. A small flat was $3,000 a month so she moved back to Louisiana. I simply said, "May the Lord bless you." She was still wiping eyes as she escorted Ginger to the car door. I was impressed of the Lord give her a word of prophecy. I waited for her to come back to my side of the car; told her that I believe that the Lord wanted me to share a word with her. It was simple; "The Lord loved her, the Lord cared for her, and the Lord sees and understands. She needed to keep her eyes on the Lord." Her response was. "I needed that," as tears flowed from her cheek. She said, "I can't go back in now, I will walk around back until my face clears up." I praise the Lord of the supernatural gift of prophecy that encourages, edifies and exhorts people. It is most effective one-on-one with only the Lord's presence.

At the time of this post, one year ago, I was scrambling down Mount Shasta, minutes away from completing one of the most difficult feats in my life. A feat I had the honor of achieving with one of my best friends @ryansneller
It took every shred of grit I could muster.
Near 7AM we crested on a ridge after waking up at 3AM, gaining only three hours of fitful sleep, and spending four hours crawling and gasping our way up a slope seemingly inspired by Frodo and Sam's wretched treck up Mount Doom. I felt my heart cleave in two and I began crying. On one hand it was one of the most brilliant sights I had ever beheld, but my body felt broken and spent beyond measure.
In that moment I felt shattered. Shattered that I wasn't going conquer the summit. Shattered that my dream, years in the making, was slipping from my grasp. I recall gazing out at the summit jutting spectacularly above the world and telling Ryan, "I'm not going to make it." And I prodded him to summit without me.
But for a while we waited, absorbing every facet of the moment, the pain, the grandeur, the magnitude of what we had achieved so far. Softly, deep inside me, I felt the murmur of an inexplicable emotion. A biting rage that quickly exploded into a flame. In that instant, I swore to myself: I hadn't come this far to only come this far. And somewhere, somehow, I found the ability to flip a switch. A switch that rallied me to my feet and jolted me with the sheer will to dig deeper.
Together, hours later, we shared the inexplicable wonder of summiting Mount Shasta.
If the journey wasn't challenging then the destination wouldn't be rewarding. #AllHeart #DigDeeper
Saturday, September 17, 2016: Testimony from David Lindsay
During Life group this week, we had several people come forward to receive prayer and ministry. As we prayed, I had a picture in my mind for one of the ladies there. In this picture, I saw her taking a book off of a shelf. It was a book of dreams that she had placed there long ago. I asked God, "What does this mean?" The thought that came to me was that, she was to take this book of dreams off the shelf and open it. In doing this, God was going to help her rewrite some those dreams and was also going to help her fulfill some that were already there. The impression was that she was not to give up on God’s dreams and purposes for her life.
As she was leaving our home later that evening, she told me that this ‘vision’ and word was ‘spot-on.’ She said that just this morning she had taken a new journal out to write down some God sized dreams, big dreams, but that she had become discouraged and put the book away on a shelf. This word for her was an encouragement that she should keep dreaming God’s dreams for her life.
Another testimony from that night. After praying for those who came forward for prayer, I felt a desire to pray for a young mother. She and her husband and their 3 children were first time visitors. I felt such heaviness over her, hopelessness. “You are not forgotten. You are not forgotten” was the prayer that I prayed. Others prayed for her as well. She began to cry silently as God moved upon her heart. I love to see God working in His people!!

“And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.” 1 Peter 4:8
When starting a homeless ministry, a man named Joshua was clearly the most demonized man of the bunch. He was never close to where the Gospel was being preached and either stood at a distance or left. When serving lunch, he apparently liked boiled eggs and asked my wife if we had more. AnnaMarie told him that we did not; however, if he would come back she would have some just for him. Next week, my wife gave him four boiled eggs and told him that she did this just for him and no one else. It has now been almost two years since this occasion. Every Sunday enroute, we find Joshua waiting for us at the same place. AnnaMarie hands him four eggs, and he follows us afterwards to join us. Today, he stands closer than ever and listens to the Gospel being preached. One Sunday, he turned to my wife and repetitively said, “Look…..Jesus down there healing people!”

"If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.” John 14:15
I once met with a man named Stephen. Prior to his born again experience, he had been active in the practice of wiccan witchcraft, and the Lord beautifully transformed his life into a new creation set after Him. Like many young Christians, however, Stephen had much to contend with and learn in life with regard to his finances, insecurities, job focus, relationships, etc. One day when meditating, the Holy Spirit placed it in my mind to give a certain amount of money to Stephen. When receiving this impression, I immediately wrestled with the idea and argued, “But Lord, Stephen does not manage his money well. Wouldn’t this be poor stewardship on my part to just give it to him?” The impression back was, “That is my business. As for you, I am calling for you to do this in obedience to ME.” My response was obedience to what I believed the Lord was commanding me. A couple of days later, I ran into Stephen. I noticed that he was sitting outside by himself. I came up to him asking him how he was doing. With sadness, he looked up at me and told me candidly, “Well, to be quite honest with you, I was just over at the top of the Jackson Street bridge contemplating jumping off of it.” He said, “Andy, my life is a wreck….my finances, situation…everything!” Being moved with compassion, I handed him the money and told him that this money was a gift from the Lord Jesus Christ who loves him with a great passion. I told him, “Jesus loves you greatly, and I love you.” When looking at the amount, he looked stunned and looked up at me very moved. He said, “Andy, you will not believe this, but when I was praying about my finances, I expressed to the Lord that this exact amount was what I needed.” On this day, Stephen experienced God.

Then I Heard The Voice Of The Lord, Saying, “Whom Shall I Send, And Who Will Go For Us?” Then I Said, “Here Am I. Send Me!” Isaiah 6:8

Tyler took an evangelism course in his last year at college. In this course, he was required to spend 15 hours practicing evangelism, and he went to a downtown area close to a hospital in Alexandria. He saw tremendous fruit from this visit, and as a result, he later saw some of the same people again visiting his church.
Since this time, Tyler was led by the Holy Spirit to go back to this same location. He prayed that God would use him Supernaturally, and he shared the Gospel with three people. One of the guys he witnessed to was doing a live-stream blog at the time they met, and he began recording Tyler’s witness and engaged him in peaceable conversation with an untold number of people who were watching across the internet. The topic was identity and freedom in Christ. The second one Tyler witnessed to was a father of two, one of whom was just born. He lived a rough life and recognized that his present situation was not good for fatherhood and life. Tyler was able to encourage Him Through The Word Of God. The Third Witness Was A Dominoes’ Pizza Delivery Person. When Asked About Eternity, She Mentioned How Peculiar It Was That He Talked About This Subject. She Said She Struggled With Her Past Religious Upbringing And Was Just Thinking About This Very Subject Earlier This Same Day. He Mentioned That This Was A Divine Moment, And He Felt Led By The Holy Spirit To Be There. All Of This Happened In About A 1-1/2 Hour Time Frame.
