I just wanted to give a real quick update on our trip thus far and let everyone know things are going smooth!
What we’ve done so far:
- We started out in Washington, DC to brief with our team on important things about our trip as well as prepare our hearts for the trip. We were actually sent out in the most perfect way by Roger Joyner and the Burn crew in DC as well as Dick Simmons, who has long been a father of intercessors for National government and served on Reagan’s Transition Board. We also did a “Life” Siege” in front of the Supreme Court silently praying for the ending of abortion in our nation and the turning of hearts unto the Lord.
- We spent a whole day (and a half maybe? …still getting time changes down) in travel via airplanes, busses, and trains.
- We were heartily greeted on Mount Carmel by an awesome group of people who serve at a hostel that we are staying at. Did I mention they greeted us with amazing food!
- We’ve spent much time in worship and prayer with other people here and our team alone. Last night we met in a prayer room that is built into a cave. Worship has been incredibly sweet! Our team is so amazing! We are all hearing the Lord for the benefit of Israel and ourselves! There’s so much serving and so much humility -these are the things that have really blessed Teresa and I as we lead! Not to mention, we’ve felt incredible Grace for this trip! I can remember the night before we left as I was driving home and I felt such a strong sense of this Grace! The thing is, I haven’t felt like this for a long time -I’ve needed it! Praise the Lord for providing it!
That’s as much as I can remember right now! Continue to pray for our trip. The Lord has blessed our team so much, pray for more of what the Lord is doing in giving us unity and Grace! Also pray for our plans which are falling into place quite nicely. Further what the Lord is doing! For, “The heavens are the Lord’s heavens, and the earth he has given to the children of man” (Ps 115:16) and “whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven and if two ask anything it WILLl be done…” (Matt 18:18-20). We need the backing and agreement of other Christians who will come into agreement with us so that we all can “loose on earth what will be loosed in heaven”, that is, that we would unleash angelic power to further the work of the Lord in this place! (see Daniel 10:10-14) Are not angels ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit Salvation? (Hebrews 1:14)
That’s all for now! We are so grateful for all of your prayers! I wish I could express the weight of our teams appreciation and joy for what the Lord is doing here!
I’m off to take my first shower in 3 days!
