Hello Family and Friends!
August has brought even more revival! All of the support Josh and I have been getting from all of you is amazing. We can feel your hands patting us on the back along with the Father's. The trip to Germany was phenomenal. We have seen a riot of miracles and the power of God in Germany. The people that have been coming to the church have never experienced God like this. All they know about the power of God comes from maybe seeing things on TBN. We are having to explain as people are falling over and rolling around getting drunk in the Spirit of God. We have been teaching the kids that have been getting the most impacted by God's Spirit how to get words of knowledge for healing. People in the service the other night were getting powerfully healed as the young people called out conditions. Two girls, Emmanuella (16 I think) and Belinda (around 12) have been our primary ministry team seeing people healed of all kinds of stuff. Last night a man named Samuel got to pray for his first deaf ear to open up! Samuel went on a treasure hunt with us the other night and ended up chasing a pregnant woman down the street who was on his list - now that is hunger!
We have even been able to call out words of knowledge for family members that were not in the meeting. It was crazy, we were getting their age and how many kids they had and the people were so hungry. Upon calling the family members pain left their body and and they started moving around when they could not before. After that meeting, we felt led to do a fire tunnel outside. As soon as we went out, lightning came out of nowhere and began to flash through the sky - God's throne and power are invading Germany! A family of Russians who were having a bar-b-q were very curious about the fire tunnel seeing people crying and laughing and such, and they invited us to their dinner to learn about the crazy Americans meeting next door. Josh and I got to sit with them and the Spirit of God moved in. The Lord told me to take it easy and let their hunger draw out His love. Only one of them could really converse in English, and she was very skeptical, but also curious. As they asked us about what we had been seeing, she translated the testimonies, the Father's love, the cross and the simplicity of the gospel. You could tell that to some of them they had never heard of such things... being from Soviet and Atheistic nationalities. After a bit the conversation went silent.
Then they asked us, "Well, do you have anything for us?" We responded with specific words of knowledge about who had what problem and that God was healing them right then. We told the first woman to put her hand on her hip and from accross the table the power of God came on her and she stood up pain free with tears and a look of astonishment on her face. As the rest saw this, we asked one girl accross from us, "Do you want to know this Jesus right now." Holding out her hands, tearing up, she asked for forgiveness of sins and invited Jesus into her heart as her Lord and Savior, feeling the power of God filling her.
All in all, a leg grew out, pains were healed, a man's shoulders was healed, a woman with breast cancer felt power surging into the tumors (she could not check infront of us to see the fullness of what had happened, for obvious reasons) and people met Jesus. One girl named Anastasia (which I learned means resurrection) asked us with earnestness of heart, "You need to come to Russia... the people there must here about these things...we invite you to Russia" Needless to say Josh and I were recked by God's love. We gave them our contact to keep in touch... so if anyone wants to go to Moscow? ha ha ha
The last service we did we got to move in waves of mass deliverance for unforgiveness... people were healed as they released forgiveness over those that had hurt them. Nicholas, a friend who was with us, preached on love, and the glory was so strong in the room. Among the many miralces that day, we got a word of knowledge about God healing a woman in a green dress with an eye problem. The woman came forward - turns out she was blind in her left eye from a botched surgery (I think if I had known she was blind I might not have called it out as a word of knowledge for healing... ha ha ha). We grabbed a German gal from the congregation to pray with us. In a matter of minutes, she went from being completely blind to counting fingers on my hand and seeing the color of someone's skirt about 8 feet away! Jesus!
Now we have moved on to Israel to serve at a conference here. Joaquin gets in tonight and we get to connect also with some other friends from Redding who I got to hang out with in Mozambique over the summer. Excitement levels are high between Josh and I!
Please continue to prophesy greater momentum over us here while we are here. The first time I was here at the wailing wall, Seth Dahl (friend from Bethel) and I got to release healing from a word of knowledge over a Jewish man inside the Holy prayer area for the Jews. Now, Josh and I are envisioning piles of people slain in the Spirit at the dome of the Rock and healing riots breaking out everywhere. The book of Acts continues!
Right now I am typing this staring out the window at the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem knowing that more fruit is to come!
Let me know if you need anything
I love you all!
