I’m reaching out to you all for a urgent prayer request from Honduras. I was notified the Dario’s daughter, son in law and their kids all have COVID-19. I spoke with Benji last night via WhatsApp. He confirmed their diagnosis with a prayer request for them all. He said they were all very weak, tired and scared.
Benji has not been able to work much since Covid hit due to all the lockdowns they have experienced in Tegucigalpa Honduras so it has created an incredible struggle just to buy food and daily necessities. If you would like to help out we will be sending a donation to help this family through Covenant Life Fellowship within the next few days. This is a true Godly family who has helped us in many ways through the years to serve ouR mission teams to Honduras and helped us spread the gospel. They are Certainly a vital part of our kingdom family.
Thank you all for continuously being an active part In God’s kingdom and fulfilling the calling!
Thursday, April 7, 2016: I felt led by the Lord to go to Cajun valve and talk
to Michael Stephens about the possibility of being ordained as a pastor of
men when Brother Charles comes at the end of this month. He seemed to
be positive about this. Mike Clark and I had prayed for him to receive the
baptism of the Holy Spirit in our living room about 10 years ago. Since that
time God is done quite a work in his life and has become a disciple or of men.
I think it's time to recognize him for what he is doing in the kingdom of God.
Sunday April 3, 2016: Amy Prokopf wrote this about her son Nicholas Rainwater who will be leaving on April 7, 2016 for YWAM. Nick will be three months in Hawaii for training and then two months in South Korea doing ministry. We are proud of this young man!
From a very early age, Nicholas has felt led to serve people and show them the love of Jesus. He never cared what the world thought of him, which oftentimes resulted in heartache - from hurtful words spoken to him by his peers to not being seen as "cool" because of his choices. He could have easily chosen to follow the crowd; however, he chose to take a path less traveled. This is one of the first songs that spoke to him as just a young boy. And Boy! Was he on fire when he would sing it!
Now, less than four days, he will be leaving his home here in the US to go overseas to minister, to love people, and to serve the Lord. In other words, to become a true Jesus Freak! However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord has given me, the task of testifying to the good news of God's grace." Acts 20:24
Friday, April 1, 2016: I needed to have work done on my vehicle, so yesterday I dropped it off at the dealership in Ruston. I needed a ride back to office so I asked if there was anyone that could take me. A gentleman by the name of Robert said that he could. Robert was a black gentleman that was about 35 or 40 years old. On the way back I initiated some small talk, asking how he liked his job; he answered back, "Oh, it's a job." I asked Robert how long he had been at the dealership and he said about four months; he had worked at a couple of other dealerships around Ruston. Most of them were for short periods of time. I picked up that he was not satisfied and was restless in what he was doing. I asked him if there was one thing that he would like to do, what would it be. He said that he wanted to get his GED and go to culinary school; that he always wanted to be a chef. I told him that I believed that the Lord had that in store for him and the Lord wanted to see him satisfied with what he did for a living that he could glorify the Lord in it. It was a short ride back to the office and I wanted to encourage him. As I got out of the vehicle I said to Robert, "I believe the next time I see you I will be setting down eating a meal where you are the head chef." He smiled, and shook my hand. As I started back to the office I looked back and saw Robert back up and rolling down the window waving at me and saying; "I received that word, I received that word." I turned around and walked back to the vehicle; I placed my hand on his shoulder and said, "Robert, can I pray for you?" He said," I would like that." We shared a few minutes of prayer where I asked the Lord to bless him, his family, his home, for him to prosper wherever God took him specifically in getting his GED and becoming a chef. We shook
hands again and parted ways.
As I went my way throughout the office praying for Robert, the Lord placed it on my heart to give him another word. I went back later in the evening to pick up my vehicle and found Robert working in the garage. As I went in Robert was walking toward me with his hand extended to shake my hand. He thanked me again for the word that he had received earlier that morning. I told him; "It was the Holy Spirit speaking through me." I also have another word that the Holy Spirit wants me to give you. "Robert, any word curse that has been spoken over you at any point during your life by a teacher, by a sibling or by a parent, that word is a lie from the pit of hell and is from the enemy. You are to believe that the Lord has plans for you, to bless you and prosper you in everything that you put your hand to. You are his perfect creation and this is your season to be blessed. As Robert held my hand he said, "I received that, I received that word." As I looked at Robert there were tears in his eyes. I told Robert that I loved him and to be blessed. I said, I'll see you again Robert and you will be a chef.
This morning as we woke up; we prayed with my wife and daughter.
One of the things we prayed for was to see a soul come to the Lord Jesus.
As we were indoors due to covid19 issues we heard a knock at the door.
Going to see who it was; I saw a mad man. I opened the door as I hear as
voice from within saying. ..open the door.....He came in and took a cup with us.
We prayed for him and the Lord delivered him. I will send a picture of the
Glory to God
Sunday March 27, 2016: A word of prophesy by James Morris on Easter Sunday morning,
"I believe in my spirit and prayer over the Family of God, there is a deeper revelation and
a fresh New renewing of the Holy Ghost. Just as He rose from the grave; I believe the
Body of Christ is going to arise in a new way today.
In the name of Jesus
James is asking for Prayer for Adam Rowan and Levi.
Saturday, July 4, 2020: From Mike Clark
Hey guys, I received a prayer request today from Leonardo. Dario has decided
that things are too dangerous right now for him to continue to come to Olanchito
to run the church etc. He has turned the church and the associated business over
to Leonardo. Leo asked for prayer for him to be properly guided as well we provision
for all the church. Leo is sharing what we've set him with many of the church body.
Just thought you all would like to know.
A TESTIMONY FROM PHIL EAKES following my weekend of ministry at Abundant Life Church in Mount Juliet TN.
Good Morning Brother, I Woke up this morning all tore up with thankfulness. I am a blessed man and thankful you are in our lives. Here a few of the remarkable things God did over the weekend!
Holy Spirit had been telling me how bad Chase (my grandson) was but I would not believe it or accept it. The doctor told him that the two of them were probably the only two people in Nashville that had survived what they had and although Chase's case was worse the doctor had spent 51 weeks in ICU and 16 weeks on a ventilator. He also said that "he saw no medical reason why Chase was alive." Hallelujah!!! The decrees we made Friday were from God and they were powerful.
• Doug and I were both prayed for because of back pain and he had immediate relief from pain and my immense pain from the fall stopped immediately.
• Andrew at the restaurant shared his needs to overcome cancer and we were able to discuss the gospel with him and you gave him a brand-new leather-bound John Maxwell leadership bible.
• Numerous prayers for healings, marriages and getting set free all which I believe will be totally successful. testimonies to follow.
• Men activated praying for one another and as a group Friday night. The gospel shown in a real practical way for equipping purposes.
• One salvation at church? I believe so. Many activated. So many shared their excitement and they were fired up.
• Hannah speaking life while singing.
• Many others this old man can't remember.
Thank you for everything Brother. We will talk soon. I am having a hard time working today because my heart is so full.
