In Global Stories

It’s summer-temp weather here, and it is hot! I can’t imagine how unbearably hot it will be here in July and August. Pray for me—haha! My visa ends at the beginning of May, and I will need to begin that process again, I will hop back and forth between countries until my visa is renewed, but most of all, I want to be led to where God wants me in the long run.

Summer plans look busy, as we have visitors, and an intern will be joining us too! But I want to share a couple of stories with you…

When I was on the mainland a few weeks ago, I met up with my friend who is a local believer. He has a real desire for the prophetic, and our role here is to help people pray for miracles and to move into the prophetic themselves. We’re so used to God’s ability to move through us, but here, they are learning how. It’s wonderful!

My local friend has 2 phones, one for his personal use, and the other for ministry. His ministry phone is full of contacts who want to know more about Jesus—and so, for two days we were meeting with people who had questions about Jesus.

One man we were meeting with for coffee, used to be a socialist and atheist, but has been meeting with my friend on a regular basis—discovering how good God is! We asked him if we could pray for him, and can we ask the Lord if He can speak to us, for you? “Yes!” was his quick reply, “I’m not going to tell you anything about my life because I want you to hear from the Lord.”

We got a word from the Lord about his heart being dry and cracked like a desert, with no moisture, and we prayed that water from the Lord would come to soften his heart. This man began to cry and asked us if he could pray, and so he did saying, “Jesus I love you, I want you, I want to know you and follow you.”

My eyes flew open as I realized, wait…did he just give his heart to Jesus?!

My believing friend told me later that it was the third time the man had prayed this prayer. Over here, it’s a slow process of discovering Jesus, taking one step at a time, and moving deeper and deeper into the heart of Jesus. It’s a beautiful process to witness and as we know the journey to Jesus is a fruitful one.

I also took in a Worker Conference, where people from all over the world (literally) gathered to meet and worship. There were so many reaching the unreached. It was amazing! As we worshiped together to the song, “Is He Worthy?” I observed the freedom of these people in worship, and I realized it was because these people had laid down their lives to follow Jesus, they had said “Yes” to Him. I was so moved by it and honoured to be part of this cool community.

Thank you to everyone who has supported me, reached out, and prayed for me; I couldn’t do this without you! I pray that our lives are built around being with Jesus and that we rediscover how much God really does love us.
