This summer the Lord had called us to have a 7 day open air Gospel Revival, he called it “The Skagit Gospel Impact”. It was from June 25th to July 2nd 2014. We had no Idea what to make of this and could not lean on our own understanding, God had big plans. When the Lord moves he sometimes starts by giving us a vision… an idea that would please the Lord but will be something that will reach many people, not just one. In order to know what God is about to we have to come with faith, perseverance and obedience. We shared the vision and never lost hope of what God was about to do! For months we prayed and waited on God, knowing He was going to do something remarkable in the Skagit valley and He was going to bring about the people needed to serve and to receive. We knew Washington state has something to do with ”Fruitfulness and multiplication ”and also” influences on the world” Using secular examples we can see this: Microsoft, Amazon, Boeing, Starbucks, etc. are all based in Washington State. All these have great influences on the world. The Skagit valley, which is believed to be ” Second richest soil in the world ”, which means if we will sow the right seeds in it (The incorruptible seed of the word of God) we will see fruitfulness and multiplication and influence to the rest of the world for Jesus. According to the parable of the sower, the soil represents the heart of man. It works both ways for the good or the bad. You can do your own research and see if it is good that has been springing up or not but the tables can be overturned and we can see the purposes of God for this state and for the world come to pass. We prayed for the Lord “to take away the iniquity of this land in one day” according to Zechariah and also that everything that the Father has not planted to be uprooted in Jesus name, but let the planting of the Lord take root downward and bear fruit upward because we asked this in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. As we prepared we knew one thing to be true, God asked us to join him, and our Yes would allow God to work out his plan. Months of preparation were ahead of us and God took care of ever last detail. It is amazing to see God work, I shall not want because when God is in it, He provides. He prepared teams of people to be ready. Ready to pray, to share the truth of God’s word, testimonies and to love on people. God did many things that we will forever give him our praise and thanksgiving for; and it started by a spark. He ignited our faith to share the gospel and his love with hundreds and hundreds of people… and I truly believe that number is growing as this fire continues to burn in our hearts and as we love and serve Jesus Christ! The Lord united people, not a church or churches, but he brought about the body of Christ, The head, hands, feet, heart, people who love Jesus. It reached many churches and many people all over Skagit County. God was moving, walls were coming down and pride and selfishness were surrendered. The Lord brought a team of 75+ who came because they heard the voice of God call them. As we united our faith increased. The Holy Spirit moved in our lives like a rushing river… Just because of an invitation to join God where he was moving. This brought about a new fervent prayer life to many people. It made us hunger for the word of God that was already ALIVE but needed activated in our lives. We gathered to worship in unity, to pray, to live out and share what the Lord was leading us in it was New Life. Just as Jesus promises He is the way the truth and the LIFE! We saw many miraculous things. There were healings, restoration of relationships, Lives surrender to Live for Jesus, Children coming forward being lead to Jesus, many testimonies of faith and sharing of the goodness of God, His blessings of provisions and finances! The Holy Spirit moved and is still moving as our faith is about BELIEVING in a living God and his Living Word. The body of Christ is to be united to serve our Lord Jesus Christ in Freedom… Freedom means we are free to Sing, free to dance free to Pray, free to rejoice, free to Worship, free to live and believe the Word of God, And to know that Jesus’ loves us and the Blood of Jesus Christ covers our sins. He forgives and by our repentance this leads us to be Free from bondage, Free from Pain, Free from Guilt , Free from rejection, Free form Shame, Free from abandonment, Free from addiction, Free from lies, Free from Satan, Free from this world. Free to choose Freedom in Christ Jesus! This Skagit Gospel Impact Revival has ignited a wave of freedom that moves to the ends of this earth and back as we unite hand in hand and heart to heart to BOLDLY and LOVINGLY share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, that continues to impact each one of us, our family, our community our County our State, our Country and this World!

Salvation

Why believe in Jesus?

Jesus is the ONLY one who died for his followers proving his love for them. No other religion can claim this. No leader of all the religions of the world ever died for his followers. No other leader of the religions of the world ever rose from the grave proving power over death and the grave, giving hope to his followers that he can raise them at the last day. This causes hopelessness to those who don’t believe in Jesus because their only hope is in this life. Jesus believed so much in what he came to do that He went all the way to die for those convictions. Other religion leaders will tell their followers to do things that they themselves were not convinced of so much as to die for them. So believer in Jesus, settle it in your heart that you have believed in the right one. The bible says in Romans 5:7,8: Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. There it is, while you still used his name as a curse word, when you still cursed Him, he died for you to save you from Hell, how much more will He take care of you when you believe in Him. Romans 10:9 says that : If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you WILL be saved. Notice it does not say you may be saved but You WILL be saved. Father now i pray that you will save those that are calling upon you after they read this. In Jesus name i pray and believe.

Pitana

Provision

Mission nanny provided!

While on one of our mission trips, we learned about missionary nannies. These are women who volunteer as nannies to missionary families. Looking at our situation; doing ministry in our home; travelling a lot; homeschooling; being in a new country with no family or friends to babysit etc., we realized that we could use the help of a mission nanny. The Lord said to us, “why don’t you just ask me?’ So we began to pray. We prayed for a nanny that would fit in our home and ministry for 11 months. We praise God because after those 11 months, he provided just the right young woman to help our family. She has been a blessing to our family and to those whom we minister to. Only God could have worked out all the details he did to connect us and bring her to us all the way from across the country! And she enjoys to travel. Yea! Glory be to God!

 

Provision

Given money

We were recently at a church and after the service, we were chatting with a certain couple. We asked how they were doing and they were trying to cover up but we could see that they were going through a hard time. As we pressed them, they began to open up, their lives had just been hit with news that was shaking them. The wife was very down. So we changed our plans and headed to their house straight from church. After more discussions, we prayed but there was no breakthrough. The woman’s head was down, she had no hope. Just about to leave, Pitana received a word from the Lord and shared it and wow! the woman revived right there and then! Praise God for the Holy Spirit, He gives the Word in due season. After Pitana shared what God had just laid on his heart, we prayed asking God to intervene and claiming victory in their lives and then we left, praising God who had showed up at the last minute!

A few weeks later, we met up with them. One of the things they needed was finance. You know what? God led a certain man whom they didn’t know well to give them $10,000 which is the amount they needed. Free and no catch except that he said ‘just thank God’. He himself needed money but God said give it to the couple. Hallelujah!!

 

Encouragement

Baby sleeps!

Last week, I receive an e-mail from a woman I had never met. The e-mail was sent to the church we work with here (addressed to me) then forwarded to us. The lady had heard about us. She was asking for help. She has a new born (3 months) who has been sleeping for only 20-30 mins. at a time. She was asking if I can have time with her. She needed help. I was asking the Lord, ‘what do I have to offer her,’ but He said that He is the one who had gotten her to contact me and that he would help if I just gave my time. Well, we had them over for brunch, prayed over the child and shared some practical examples and oh, the baby slept for 2 hours until the mother had to wake her up to nurse her as the milk was hurting her! If you are a mother, you can appreciate that God cares about our children’s sleep!
