December - Happy New Year!

Sent to the Nations...

Happy New Year!

How are you? Any special goals or resolutions for this New Year?

It has been the best year ever and things are only going to get better! In front of me is a book called "The Improving State of the World" and all it talks about are statistics of how the world is getting better and better from health to wealth to literacy to mouths fed. I have been thinking about all the great breakthroughs God has accomplished in this year alone, and all I can do is get happy. Just from my vantage point (which is a small one) I have gotten to see thousands healed, saved, and delivered, hundreds if not much more equipped to win the lost with displays of the power of God, and many friends enter into their destiny in the past year. We have great reason to celebrate all that He has done!

Over the past month I have spent my time split between Southern California and Redding. I started out going to Mammoth Mountain, a famous ski resort town out here, to be part of a team with my friends Chad and Julia Dedmon. We had a blast connecting with the Lighthouse Church there. We got to spend a whole day with their school of ministry and saw amazing stuff happen. After a short equipping on words of knowledge and treasure hunt evangelism (people are the treasure God leads you to), we saw multiple people healed and touched by God's love. One of the guys in our group heard God say the name Steve and a guy in the store stood out to him. So he just called out to the guy, "Hey Steve!" The guy ignored us, but after we caught up and gave him some encouraging words about God's love for him, we asked him his name. With a funny attitude he said, "Steve... but you already knew that." One of the groups found a girl with Cerebral Paulsy in the store who could not move her arm because of the disease. After a quick prayer the team asked her to do something she could not do before - she began to move her arm around normally and was astounded!

While at Mammoth I got to learn how to snowboard. So far I am really bad. I am going to stick to surfing, but please pray for me to be healed from the effects of the mountain on my ego.

The week after Mammoth, Chad and Julia hosted their first conference at GoodNews Church in Riverside, CA with Kurt and Mary Alice Shroeder (Love you guys!). The conference brought us all to a new level of experiencing the presence of God. There were prophetic booths so that attendees could be prophesied over and encouraged as well as activation sessions for encountering God, living a revivalist lifestyle, and treasure hunting. Some of the testimonies from the event include numerous deaf ears opening, one of the women when interviewed about what was happening to her said her ears were open and her pants were loose! She freaked out as she had lost weight off her waistline in the presence of God. We did not pray for that but why not? Jesus takes away the heavy burden... ha ha ha! Another individual went through a transformation in God's love - having been an epileptic we have since heard that this individual has seen great breakthrough with an internal shift and no more seizures! Yeah Jesus! Also partnering with Chad and Julia's ministry Encountering Jesus ( were Chad's dad Kevin Dedmon, Shawn Bolz, and team of students from Bethel Church. The fellowship and impartation were amazing.

Since that time I have been up in Redding enjoying the Christmas holiday connecting with friends. It has been a great time of strategizing and dreaming for the New Year. I remember hearing stories of this one prophet who had a recurring vision of a news reporter on a major network reporting, "There is no news but good news tonight..." The reporter went on to share how stadiums across the nation were filled with people in adoration of Jesus and great and mighty miracles were taking place by the thousands. No one knows who those on stage are, but they had been declaring the works of God for hours and even days straight. Since the times of this recurring vision some many years ago, this prophet has seen the same newscaster (who would have been a child at the time of the vision) on television with a major network. I think 2010 is a great time for this vision of God's heart to come to pass. America is in and ready for more revival. My word for 2010... I see a cloud the size of a man's hand... its time for rain (1 Kings 18:44).

Please continue to pray for

-a place in Southern California for me to live (I am praying to live with a family rather than by myself),

-further financial strategy for the future (I plan on having a family one day and want to feed the nations spiritually and physically),

-further in roads to serve the dreams of the sons and daughters of Hollywood (we are called to disciple nations and no other place does it more or do I cry for more),

-the strengthening of our team and how we plan to run together releasing revival,

-the blessing and increase of my spiritual fathers and mothers in the church and the business world,

-and greater encounters with Father (I like Him alot).

Keep me updated on how you are doing... Lots of Love!


Hello Family and Friends,

I have decided to let today be the best day of my life. Right now I am in Florida for the Thanksgiving holiday on the heels of some travels. During the end of October I enjoyed time with friends in Redding. I had the oppurtunity to just chill for a week, blessed with my own room, before attending Bethel's Leaders Advance. While there I decided to write and ended up doing an outline and pouring around 30 hours into a book over 4 days giving me somewhere over 70 pages in a book. It was just flowing out of me. The topic is on feeling and enjoying the presence of God. Where there are books on seeing in the spirit (Eph 1:18 talks about the eyes of your heart being open to know the hope of our calling and the riches of our inheritance), this book is about feeling the presence of God and responding to God's Glory, thus positioning oneself for greater encounter. Please pray for the grace to finish it here in the next couple of weeks - and insight on what to do next with it.

One Saturday while I was in Redding, I went to the Healing Rooms at Bethel to sit and write in that atmosphere of Glory. Many there got to take part in praying over a woman who throughout the course of her visit that day was healed of MS! For 29 years she had had the disease. It had progressed to the point that she was in a wheelchair only able to move one arm and could not squeeze her hands. In the presence of God she began to regain movement. She got out of her wheelchair and was pushing it around, squeezing her hands, doing all the stuff she could not do before. There is video of the miracle on youtube if you want to check it out.

At the Leaders Advance I got so encouraged by the testimonies of revival all over the world. Leaders came in from many nations and shared the fruit of what God is doing in their spheres of influence. At one of the dinners I got to visit with some leaders from places we had traveled to in South Africa over the summer. They shared how their congregations are seeing miracles in the streets. One leader shared how some of the youth had not had enough money for pizza dinner so they decided to just worship outside the restaurant. As they did money actually began to fall from the sky - that is awesome!

After the Advance I got to go on a ministry trip to Ramona, CA led by my friend Jason Chin. Jason is an equipper and believes in people more than anyone I know - so much so I don't think he ever even preached. His 14 year old son got to come along and spoke during one of the sessions. While there I got to see one of the strongest activations of a church I have seen to date. So many miracles happened. Jesus got His reward. One of the nights the team felt like we were not supposed to pray for anyone - that the church should do the ministry. I was asked to pick a ministry team from the congregation. Before the meeting I met up with about ten of the young people in a room to soak. As we waited in the presence, they started having visions and getting words of knowledge for the meeting. I figured they might as well be the team. During the service they called out numerous conditions and people were getting healed all over the room. A few highlights included seven deaf ears opening, cysts disolving, and pains leaving and two cases of Muscular Distrophy healed (two men were able to make a fist and open it where they could not before). We did an altar call that night for salvation and people received Jesus as their Lord and Savior. One girl invited the Lord into her heart weeping, began to shake and fell over under the Spirit's power. Later a word of knowledge was given for healing of someone who fell of a horse between 3 and 4 years ago. She responded and was healed of scoliosis (she felt her spine straighten)! She was a laughing mess in the Glory... Saved, Healed, and Delivered! There was a teenager who came that night bound to a wheelchair because of cancer that had wrapped around his spine. During testimony time I noticed a young man just standing infront of the stage. I asked him what had happened. He said, "I can't walk." It was the same young man who was bound in the wheelchair - now walking around and feeling warmth and power surging through his back. Jesus! At the end of the night the Glory got so strong we went in to a time of impartation. The team just layed on the stage as people radically encountered God.

From Ramona I hopped on a plane to North Carolina to spend a few days with a friend / mentor. We got to go to a UNC game where Jesus healed a scalper. Jesus loves scalpers too! Chad (my friend) and I got to do another meeting and the miracles were again amazing. I watched as a woman who had no arches in her feet grew them right infront of me. Over the phone we saw pains from Lupus go away and a growth on the back of the neck disappear. It was glorious!

So the travels continue... Please pray for a home base for the team I am traveling with predominantly right now. Chad, Julia, Nick, Andy, and I all burn for revival in Southern California. Andy is getting back into modeling and just texted me that he got a runway job. We are looking for housing this month and want to serve and partner with existing churches in SoCal for total reformation of the region. I am also in need of wisdom on how to finance all that God has called me to do. I am grateful for your constant support. Please let me know how you are doing.

Much Love


Hello Family and Friends!

Thanks for the continued support and replies to the email... I love to be encouraged! Here I am in beautiful Orange County, California enjoying myself so much I almost forgot to update all of you on how I am doing! Today I surfed twice with friends - we scored Huntington Beach Pier at night tonight. It was great to surf with just the two of us for a bit. The lights on the pier allow for just enough light to surf. My friends Chad, Julia, Nick and Andy and I have been surfing and strategizing for the next season we are entering into.

Since I last wrote you I have been to FL, Texas, Redding, and now Southern California. My stay in the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas was amazing... Many thanks to Steve and Marci Fish and Matt and Sonja Bomhoff for hosting me and allowing me to speak in their school of supernatural ministry there. I had a blast connecting with friends and seeing the Lord move in power. One of the days while I spoke a pastor who attends the school got completely drunk in the Spirit, falling from his chair (how do you fall from a chair? ha ha) and reported that a tumor on his back shrank and pain left it as well during the preaching. We then went out to do evangelism and we saw a number of people healed, prophesied over, and touched with God's love. I got to do some equipping in moving by faith in the word of knowledge. A woman who I went out with got a word for a stomach problem and which house the person was in so we just walked up and knocked on the door. When the people inside answered we said, "Hello, we are here to help the person with the stomach problem." They said, no one had such a problem. We told them God had sent us here and asked if they were sure that no one had the problem. They said yes but one of them had just lost their mom. They believed God had sent us. As we left I told the gal who had gotten the word that many times people don't confess to having conditions. As we got about 30 feet away from the apartment, the woman inside came back out and told us that she actually did have that problem... God proved the point and we released healing over her!

On the last day I shared my testimony on how the Lord began to set my heart ablaze that Jesus would get what He deserved in people being healed. At the end I did an activation in the word of knowledge and the students called out conditions and numerous healings took place. One highlight was when a young man called out a shoulder problem. A man in his seventies responded. He had dreamed of playing major league baseball until he hurt his shoulder in high school. Now after over 50 years of problems and pain, the power of God touched him and he has mobility and no pain! Yay Jesus! I felt like it is a sign to all of us that God is restoring dreams in renewing our youth and the ability to dream - it is time for hope to Arise and for us to run with our dreams again! I pray that all who read this would day dream with the Father about nothing being impossible. That specific hopes would come to the surface and desire fulfilled would be their portion (Proverbs 13:12).

Please pray that God would grant me fresh vision as to what the next year and years should look like, and that loose ends would tie together for upcoming ministry trips. I am alive for the fullness of where my dreams and the Father's dreams collide.

I am also in search of a place to stay as I get more established in Southern California and partner with friends here.

In the next week or so I am planning to trek back up to Redding for the Leadership Advance and then go to FL for a wedding and then off to North Carolina for a time of encounter at Moravian Falls.

Early September

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!
