It has been a while since I have written a ministry update with pictures and details. The last few years have extended to us lots of opportunity for transition. I thought we were done with transition a few years ago. Ha-ha, I find myself chuckling as I rest in the ever-increasing peace of God, for we have not finished transition and CHANGE seems to be part of the life of a follower of Christ.
My husband Randy and I celebrated our 25th anniversary on June 16, spending the day together riding our bikes, having a picnic lunch, a walk and a nice patio dinner. The Lord has called Randy to be a part of our ministry now as we launch our HOPE Center with Encounters and Equipping. Talk about change!
Edith Chapman has relocated this month to Utah from Baltimore, MD to be my Admin/Personal Assistant. It took 6 months for this transition to take place. She has sacrificed much to come join the dream of God with us. We are very happy to have her here. Please welcome her with your love, prayers and encouragement.
After 11 years of serving, I have resigned my position as Strategic Intercessor for Global Awakening. I have also resigned from being Co-Facilitator at The Outpouring Transformation Center where I served for the past 2½ years. It was an honor to serve alongside amazing men and women of God. I learned a lot and received much. We long to apprehend all The Lord is unfolding before us. My heart is to be like Jesus who only did what He saw His Father doing.
Our trip at the end of February/beginning of March to South Africa was the best yet! I’ve included photos with captions in this update. The Lord gave us glimpses of the double-portion blessing through tangible signs and crazy wonders.
We were treated to a great way to get over any possible jet lag: someone from Abe & Lil’s church paid our way to Krueger Game Park. Anyone who knows me would be aware I do not usually allow for fun and adventure when on a ministry trip. A few years ago I realized that I was missing out on much of God’s beautiful creation and people. The Lord spoke a lot to me that I was able to share as we ministered later. We were treated to 2 amazing, rustic nights and days. We spotted 2 baby Leopards, 2 Lionesses, lots of Elephants, Water Buffalo, Rhinoceros, Cheetahs, Zebras, Giraffes, Monkeys and more. There was significant revelation when we saw an Eagle-Owl on a sign-post: the Lord is giving us prophetic vision to see the treasures in darkness.
The next day after our adventure I spoke to Lil’s women’s group. The Lord released words of encouragement, healing and hope. One woman felt the healing power of God align her back and pain leave. Another had been crying out to God about a specific issue, which He had me pray into by the power of His spirit and a word of knowledge. The Lord moved in His powerful grace.
On two different occasions, Martha and I walked through a park. We had words of knowledge for several women, all of whom experienced healing as we prayed. There is one story that stands out as it still brings tears to my eyes. Martha noticed one woman who had not responded for prayer. Martha encouraged her and asked if we could pray for her. Martha prayed beautifully. As she was praying, The Lord highlighted a few things. The woman had some terrible scars. The Lord shared with me that there was trauma and shame from the violent abuse which had assaulted this woman. He then spoke to me to show her my scars on my face and share how God healed me from the pain, shame and trauma of abuse. As I shared with her and then prayed, tears fell from her beautiful eyes. Her countenance began to change and God’s healing love met her in the park. We were undone by the goodness of the Lord. As we walked away I told Martha that I thanked God for those scars that were now healed because they opened a door to a woman’s heart for healing. Praise Jehovah Rapha, our healer!
After our short time with Abe & Lil, we then went to the other side of Joy-burg (Johannesburg) to be with John & Lisa Crumpton and BreakThru Life church. We had a powerful gathering. The Lord had given me a word for South Africa and I released it there before I left. We also prayed into the foundations of their new building. Here are links for the words, one for the written, and one for the spoken message. There are many keys in the recording for us wherever we are.
After the service was over and all who wanted had received prayer, we were getting ready to leave when a coin appeared on the ground. Martha picked it up and it was South African 2 Rand coin. I looked at the date and it was 1991. We knew it meant something, but didn’t yet discern what. When we got back to John & Lisa’s I asked Martha to get something out of my suitcase. When she came back she was holding a US Nickel. It was a 1997Nickel. Well The Lord had my attention now! 1997 is the year I had the encounter with the Lord that changed my life. As we spoke, we discovered that both years were significant to John, and we were able to pray into prophetic promises over their lives.
We then journeyed to Durban, South Africa. At the airport Martha was doing something at the airline counter and I was eating nuts out of my purse. All of a sudden there was a dime next the bag of nuts. I picked it up and it was 1997 Dime. Whoa, I was undone. I heard the whisper of Holy Spirit: it’s time for the double-portion blessing. I began to ponder, believe and receive.
When we arrived in Durban, I was apprised of a spirit of offense trying to infiltrate. The Lord began to speak to me and download what He would have me teach at the Global School.
We had a one-day trip to another game reserve before we would begin the next phase of ministry at GSSM-SA. Talk about a double-portion blessing. We had the rare treat of seeing 2 full-grown leopards and a mama lioness with her 2 male cubs. We saw many more animals and birds. We also saw a vine snake that hides in the tree and looks like the vines. Yikes, if that was ever a picture of satan.
The time at the ministry school was rich. I learned a lot as Holy Spirit taught me about offense and then had me teach on it. We were all set free from the lies of offense. I had a lot of fun there, ministering prophetically in song and declarations during worship. I also taught on intercession, authority and our place in God. These messages will soon be available on our website.
Shortly after this trip, the Lord spoke more to me about the coins. Five being the number of grace, and 10 being the number of divine order; add 10 + 5 together, giving 15. This is 2015. Remember, both coins were dated 1997 and that is when I encountered The Lord and stepped into the anointing of His baptism of fire, which has been released wherever the Lord has sent me to bring transformation. The Lord spoke to my heart to pay attention this year to what He is doing; don’t miss His signs that are showing us the way to partner with Him. He is about to breathe on prophetic promises with His grace, releasing His divine order.
Thank you for standing with us in prayer, love and support. I’m sure your prayers opened up the doors of favor and the double-portion blessing we received and what we were able to sow into the region and people. We love you and are standing with you for all God has for you. I will be sending an Israel update next and will highlight our upcoming Lovelution Journeys.
“…the only thing that really matters is living by the transforming power of this wonderful new creation life. And all those who live in agreement with this standard will have true peace and God’s delight…”
