BELIEVE (Part 5)

Storms Pass

No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life.  As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.  Be strong and courageous, beacuse you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their fathers to give them.  Be strong and very courageous.  Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.  Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it.  Then you will be prosperous and successful.  Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and courageous.  Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.  (Joshua 1: 6-9)

I believe there are many who need to hear these words of the LORD right now, in this very hour.  I pray they will go way down deep into your spirit and that this written promise from God will enfold you and bring you indescribable peace.  Just as God was with Joshua, He is with you as you face new challenges and although you may not conquer nations; every day you face tough situations, difficult people, and temptations.  By asking God to help you and BELIEVING HIM, you CAN and WILL get through any storm (Romans 8: 37).

I will not be here to answer any comments over the next eight days; however, please go ahead and write out your prayers, your requests, your acknowledgment that you are going through a storm so others can pray for you.  Tonite I was listening to some really old songs and the woman singing has gone on to be with Jesus.  They really minsitered to me and I pray they will bless you as well.  Click on each below, I hope you can access them.

  1. while I was on the phone this email came in, and he was in a quandary about a job situation, and I read him the scripture about Joshua and told him to apply it to his life, accept it as his own, and he did, so this will help him in his life. Praise God and thank you,

    • God IS ALWAYS ON TIME…Can you doubt now? 🙂 Praise the Lord !!!

  2. Daniel is a great example of courage in the face of opposition! Thanks Carlos.

    Daily Worship

    “Impress [my commandments] on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” (DEUTERONOMY 6:7)
    Scripture Focus: Deuteronomy 6, Daniel 6

    One of my favorite stories about daily worship is in Daniel 6. A conspiracy is hatched to kill 80-year-old Daniel, a Jewish exile from the Promised Land. The political leaders of Babylon figure that the best way to catch Daniel who was known as a worshiper of Yahweh is to establish a law against worshiping anyone but the king. According to the injunction, anyone caught worshiping or praying to another god would be thrown to the lions.

    When news of the injunction reached Daniel, Scripture tells us that he “got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before” (Daniel 6:10). Daniel worshiped daily. Not even the threat of being fed to the lions would keep Daniel from showing devotion to his God!
    Where did such courage come from? Was Daniel just a spiritual Superhero? No. Daniel simply knew his hope did not lie in the present evil age, but in the God who held his future. His confidence in the God of promise fanned his devotion in the midst of great threat.

    Insight: The Prophets Were Actually Serving Us Through Their Writings
    (1 Peter 1:10-12). Does The Reason Behind Daniel’s Persistence In Daily Worship Encourage You?

  3. Thanks for this “Word for Today” Ras. Go to theFullness in Christ link and follow the ministry of the is man, his wife and others; receive a great big God Blessing!

    November 5, 2011. The nation of Peru and its people are in my heart. God called me to Peru before He called me to the Philippines. God has blessed mightily each time I have ministered there. My prayer is that someday I will be able to return. Now I am concerned for three young Peruvian men. Each is greatly challenged by learning to speak and write the English language. One is in Peru. Two of them live in the USA. One is about to divorce his wife because he can’t find work to support her. As I pray, I hear these words, “Come up here and I will show you what is to come.” You may also have a great challenge. Please join with me in prayer as I will for you. Let us go up to the Father together!

    Revelation 4:1 (NASB) “After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven, and the first voice which I had heard, like the sound of a trumpet speaking with me, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things.” Ras Robinson. “Miracle Service” and “Receiving Anointing for Miracles:” — November 11, 7:00 pm, live on site and webcast..

    Subject: TO KCWE PRAYER PARTNERS: SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER 2011 NEWSLETTER

    SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER 2011 NEWSLETTER
    Dear Prayer Team Members,
    Thank you for all the prayers that went up for my healing. I am glad that I am on my feet again healed in Jesus’ Name! The grace of our Lord Jesus has been sufficient for everything He calls us to do. Through the prayers of all of you brethren, Jane and I have been sustained and strengthened to continue our busy schedule.
    Jane’s part and involvement in ministry this year has been incredible and I realize these past weeks after the 2011 conference that her ministry is so important like I never envisioned before. She has a special gift in building close relationships with pastor’s wives whom we ministered to during the conference in a very short time. She is also fired up and wants to accompany me to the pastors’ churches in the next couple of weeks and wherever I am invited.
    Brethren I don’t think I ever got chance to thank all of you so much for how you prayed and supported the 2011 Pastors conference. The fruit of what has taken place during Apostle Green’s ministration has a definite connection with your intercessions in our behalf. God is so faithful to come along after such steps of faith and take care of the financial needs through you brethren as willing vessel as He did during the entire meetings. I want to ask you to please join us in lifting up these specific prayer requests:
    • That the local Believers in Nakhwana where we ministered would continue to be encouraged and equipped to bring their unsaved friends to the future events.
    • Ask the Lord to bless and strengthen our relationships with the pastors in Nakhwana. This is the start of what we hope will be a continued work in Western Kenya.
    • Pray for transformed lives! We are called to “Go” and proclaim the Gospel but it is the changed lives that encourage us onward.
    Here is a summary of the various ministry opportunities that were before us the past six weeks:
    TEACHING OPPORTUNITIES AT CHURCHES
    During the conference; these were tremendous opportunities to interact with pastors and their wives, especially those who are involved with smaller congregations in smaller towns. The connections we made during those conferences will lead to great opportunities for future ministry to those co-laborers in Christ.
    MARRIED’S RETREAT
    Jane and I have received close to 6 invitations to feature speakers married’s retreats. We have been married almost 18 years now by the grace and love of God, through repentance and forgiveness one to another over the years. Please help us keep these invitations before the Lord that He will direct us where we are badly needed; that it will also be such a precious time of healing and encouragement when we get there.
    CHURCH EVALUATIONS (OBSERVATIONS AND SUGGESTIONS)
    Pastor Eliud Lubisia whom was recently ordained in ministry and part of 2011 class and two pastors working under him have asked me to go to their church and be a set of ‘fresh eyes’ to observe and evaluate their ministry, communicate with his staff, board, leadership, and even his wife, and just get an overall idea of how the ministry is flowing. Jane and I work together in this. At the end of the extended weekend, we intend to put together a brief evaluation and submit it to Pastor Eliud and his staff. It is up to him to pray over the observations and suggestions and then follow the direction and the leading of the the Holy Ghost in just what to implement. We have served in this way to several fellowships here and sometimes the Lord used these sessions in a marvelous way.
    PLEASE PRAY FOR US! If you are so led to donate to our ministry and contribute to the success of these ministries in the coming weeks, you can so as the Lord leads you. We will be sure to send you an acknowledgment receipt and keep you updated on how your gifts were a blessing.
    CURRENT PRAYER REQUESTS:
    * Divine appointments to minister with senior pastors and their wives in the coming year.
    * Grace, love, strength, and wisdom to minister into those opportunities set before us
    * Finances to cover the travel expenses (average is $300 – $550/mo) to be able to offer our ministry to those smaller churches and to encourage the souls that were won to Christ and making personal connections with the pastors and churches where we directed the souls to be nurtured.
    * Finances to cover our living expenses each month. For Schoolfees to keep our children in school and to supply basic needs. Please pray for more cleaning jobs for Jane and I and for Jane’s embroidery business. 60% of our earnings go to our outreaches.
    Thank you for all you do for this ministry and God’s Kigdom. It is friends and prayer partners like you that strengthen our arm as we “practice and proclaim the life-changing message of the Lord Jesus Christ in the world’s most spiritually receptive places”. We are truly blessed to be joining with you in this work. Your prayers make all the difference, so please, keep praying!
    Yours, to make HIM known,
    Apostle Bishop Simon Mac Onyango

    • I pray for this outreach Simon; that you will see thousands brought into the kingdom through the various opportunities God has placed before you and the open doors He has provided; they cannot be closed, in Jesus name! He honors your faithfulness in service and you sound like Paul…he had a tent making business; you and Jane have work you do as well to add to your necessary funds. I keep you and yours in daily prayer coverage and give God GLORY for what He is doing all over the world! 🙂

      • God bless you so much and thank you for all the prayers going up for us. We will be sure to bring you when we come before the throne of the father too! We are deeply humbled!
        I trust God willing our relationship will be long and effective and will help us reach our people group and nation.
        This truly is a time of great harvest.
        In bonds of love
        Bishop Simon Mac Onyango
        President and Founding Minister, Kenya Center For World Evangelism, Inc.

      • AGREED SIMON! A TIME OF GREAT HARVEST! God bless you and those God has given you to shepherd.

  6. Great words of encouragement. I will read and meditate on this scripture daily. Thanks Judy.

  7. Praise God, Juanita Travis received her visa that has been sought for a long time. It is in direct answer to prayers. Thanks for your prayer work!

    God is blessing the work in Honduras. We believe that 158 churches have been planted there because, in part, of the work of the HCPM project.

  8. Just wrote another blog called “Getting There” in God Things at vsalzer.wordpress.com.

    • Thanks Vince! I encourage all of you to read Vince’s new blog, “God Things”…send him a word of encouragment and PRAYER is always GRATEFULLY accepted, eh Vince? 🙂

      • Yes Judy,,all comments, prayers and encouragement greatly appreciated and accepted. God Things is something He gave me to do…to reach out to the ones searching, but still immersed in the world, new age, etc. Thank You Judy for your encouragement and help the last few years.

        Vince

  9. Here is a BIG THANK YOU to all who have been praying for the Honduras CPM project and the special requests recently.

    Juanita got her Visa and is in the USA!!!!!This is an answer to prayer and the culmination of a multi year battle!

    We believe that at present 159 churches have been planted in the last 2 years in Honduras. Here is a blog I just posted that tells the story! It is a story of answered prayer and God’s sovereign work! Glory to God

    In 2008, when I started this blog, I wrote a timeline of the launch of the project. I am reproducing part of that blog here and have added to make it up to date. Breakthrough is happening, but here is a story of the road to breakthrough. God is doing a wonderful work, and any progress is only to His glory and power. We have done a lot of trial and error in the last few years, but the Lord of the harvest has been working His plan all along, through, with and sometimes in spite of us!

    Here is a timeline of what has been done to launch this project.

    September 2006: David Parish and Randy Travis take intensive training in C.P.M. principles from David Watson in Dallas. The H.C.P.M. concept is born.

    October 2006: Randy does research on C.P.M. principles.

    November-December 2006: Randy Travis, Keith Travis and Richard Crowder make exploratory trip to Honduras to assess the need and geographical place for H.C.P.M. project.

    January 2007: Randy develops initial strategic plan and presents it to David Parish. It is presented to the Board of Directors and the project is approved. Initial launch is projected for the middle of 2007.

    March 2007: The decision is made to send Randy and his family to lay the foundation of the project while funding for project is developed.

    April 2007: W.M.E. hosts C.P.M. training for missionaries. David Watson trains several missionaries and examines H.C.P.M. strategic plan and gives recommendations which are very helpful.

    June 2007: Randy, Linda, Keith and Juanita Travis move to Santa Rosa de Copan, Honduras. Residence is established and they begin developing training curriculum and preparing the base.

    November-December 2007: Randy, Linda and Keith travel to the United States for the World Missions and Evangelism Conference. While in the U.S. a water well drill is obtained for access ministry. This, along with clothes and other supplies, are shipped to Honduras by missionary Darrel Dakin. The final strategic plan (budget and timeline) are decided.

    January-April 2008: The Travis family travels back to Honduras. The base is prepared and the Church Planting team is chosen after extensive interviews and prayer.

    April 29, 2008: Church Planting Team arrives at the base.

    May-June 2008: Intensive training of church planters. They are taught to ride motorcycles for access into mountain villages. All C.P.M. principles are taught and the team prepares spiritually with much prayer. David Parish visits the team near the end of June and training is finished.

    June 25-July 2008: Team does survey trips to plan outreach and then takes a week-long break to visit families. The teams reassemble and deploy the week of July 21.

    July 23, 2008: Team enter villages searching for persons of peace. The project begins in the field.

    August-November, 2008: The team works very hard. Wells are drilled. Potential persons of peace are identified. Discovery Bible Studies begin. October brings devastating floods to Honduras and the team works in very difficult conditions.

    December, 2008: Approximately 25 Discovery Bible Studies have begun, but they are struggling. David Parish comes to Honduras as do David and Paul Watson, who travel to Honduras to meet and train the team. During the training, the team is taught a better way to see the Bible studies organized, and begins to understand some of the CPM tactics in a better way. After the training Parish and the Watson’s return to the US, and at the end of the month, Randy and Linda Travis come back to the US. David P. and Randy meet for a few days to process what they have now learned from the Watsons and to make some tactical adjustments.

    January-February, 2009: Randy and Linda Travis return to Honduras and begin to implement several tactical adjustments in the strategy. This leads to both a major rearrangement of the team, as well as experimenting with recordings to aid the DBS studies because of high illiteracy.

    March-May, 2009: The tactical changes begin to prove successful. 1st and 2nd generation DBS studies begin. By the end of June, there are 73 studies in the 5 departments where the project is working.

    June, 2009: A short term team from Cave Hill Independent Church of God, as well as Daniel Slayden, Ben Holloway, and David Parish, travel to Honduras and conduct a series of access ministries including well drilling, school supply distribution to children in a variety of places, and painting a poor school. The outreach is very successful and the members of the team are blessed. The group returns home excited about what God is doing. By month end, it is discovered that the number of studies are now 73, having tripled since beginning of the year.

    June 28, 2009: The government of Honduras is overthrown. The nation lives on the brink of civil war for the next 5 months and full stability is not reestablished until the next president is installed in January 2010. Curfews, riots, conflicts, road blocks and violence become both a danger and a reality in different parts of the country. June 30, the Travis families are chased by a mob and escape only by a gracious deliverance of God. David Parish tells the Travises to leave now. July 1, Randy and Linda, and Keith and Juanita Travis cross the border into Guatemala. Keith and Juanita stay for the next several months in southern Mexico where they spread the cpm vision. Randy and Linda drive to the USA.

    July-October, 2009: 2/3rds of the Honduran team are stuck on the eastern side of the country, because they were there on a short break when the overthrow occurred. Travel restrictions hinder a lot of the work during this time. Randy tells them to spread the concept of cpm where they are. Meanwhile, David Parish learns of a new kind of technology called the Megavoice machine that may be useful for the recorded studies. The decision is made to not waste the time, but to use the Travis’ time in the USA to get the studies professionally recorded. A Mexican believer who has been involved in gospel recordings and who Randy had discipled years before, flys to the US. Tommy and Linda King in Mayfield, KY open their hearts to the project and the recordings are made at Tommy’s studio. Almost the entire month of August is devoted to editing the studies which end up being the 24 Level 1 DBS studies and also the Level 2 studies. In September, Randy travels briefly back to Honduras by plane and Richard Crowder drives his truck from the US to Honduras carrying much recording equipment to mass produce the recordings for use in the DBS studies. These begin to be used widely. In a short few months hundreds of the recordings are distributed and many DBS studies begin. However, we would later learn, that because of the problems in travel and follow up, the team was not able to really mentor the new groups and most of the new studies did not endure.

    November, 2009: A pivotal moment. Randy flys to Honduras again. This time he conducts a training in the eastern part of the country where the 2/3rds team had been working a great deal. At this training a key leader receives the teaching with eagerness. We call him, “Beto” and this man will prove to be one of the most effective implementers of cpm strategy we have ever met.

    December, 2009: “Beto” begins his first DBS as a training DBS for leaders. 8 new leaders are trained who will be very effective workers.

    January-February, 2010: The government situation in Honduras completely stablizes and Randy’s and Keith’s families return. When they get back they see the toll that the last few months have had on the project. The difficulty in travel and the lack of ability to mentor has reduced the project to less than 40 DBS groups in the west. Reports from the east with “Beto” are better, but the project seems to be in a difficult and uncertain position.

    March-June, 2010: The team dusts off, regroups, learns about mentoring in more effective ways and pushes forward. David P. spends much of June in California with the Cityteam organization and learns key insights on mentoring which can be passed on to the team.

    July, 2010: David leads a small team back to Honduras and they encourage the team and are encouraged to see the progress being made. Reports at this point show that there are nearly 90 DBS groups in the west (and possibly 70 DBS groups in the East). (Also due to Keith’s work in southern Mexico and a January training trip there there are some DBS groups in Mexico….this work has continued on and off and we are not counting any of them in our current reports….this may change later).

    August-December, 2010: The team tenaciously works the process of CPM strategy. Some areas experience religious persecution. By end of the year, 2 people connected with the overall work have been killed, for unknown reasons. 1 is a worker who was trained in Mexico….killed in Guatemala. Another (killed during this period or not long into 2011) is a participant in one of the DBS groups. The reasons are not, to our knowledge, the connection to the project, but rather just an example of the spiritual warfare involved.

    January, 2011: David P. returns to Cityteam in California and receives some additional advice from David Watson. Then he travels to Honduras. He brings with him David Hunt’s dissertation describing the Church Planting Movements happening in the Horn of Africa since 2005. Randy, Keith, and David spend extensive time studying this document to glean new principles or tactics and certain areas are addressed to insure that the project is not overlooking critical elements of CPM.

    February-March, 2011: CHURCHES!!!!
    It is at this time that we learn of emerging breakthrough. Some people are accepting Christ, willing to form into churches. The first baptisms in the project occur.

    April, 2011: David and a small team travel to Honduras. A training for 2 groups occurs in the state of Olancho. A leadership seminar for the primary team follows in Santa Barbara, and then another training for 3 groups happens in Trujillo. The trainers are Randy, Keith and David, along with the Honduran team. Those who have been workers in the villages (and they continue in this role) are now becoming trainers of others.
    The progress is assessed.
    There are 61 churches and over 100 DBS groups ongoing in the entire nation as a result of the efforts. The area where churches are multiplying is very encouraging. It begins to appear that CPM level could be reached by end of year.
    “CPM LEVEL: 100 CHURCHES, 3 GENERATIONS DEEP, WITHIN 2 YEARS”

    May-October, 2011: Work continues and progresses. This year the primary team is decentralized into different parts of the country (This began earlier this year).
    Randy, Keith, and David spend a good deal of June in California at the Cityteam consultation on CPM with leaders connected to 54 countries. Work begins on a 6-7 year strategic plan.

    In late June, the 300 Prayer team is formed, and prayer begins to increase for the work!

    In July, 3 more men are killed. 2 are pastors who were to be trained in CPM that very day by “Beto”, gunned down in shootout between criminals and the police. Another was what appeared to be a key contact in a new department.

    Persecution and religious pressure is directed toward many groups and people that are in the DBS groups.

    During this 6 month period there is a combination of Planning, Prayer, Persecution, and Pressure. AND MULTIPLICATION OF CHURCHES!
    Assessment begins to take place to see what is happening.

    November, 2011: Reports of what God is doing are coming in and we stand in amazement.
    A Church Planting Movement has begun.
    Today we believe that there are 159 Churches. Churches and DBS groups are touching over 6,000 people we believe. Hundreds have been baptized.

    131 of the Churches represent a downline of church multiplication 3 generation deep and track back to the training in November 2009. Just 2 years ago.

    98 Churches have been planted in the last 6 months, since April!

    There is much to do…..it is only the beginning. We are praying and believing for thousands of churches and hundreds of thousands of obedient disciples….but breakthrough has begun!

    Please Keep Praying. Please Keep Supporting.

    God is doing a great thing in Honduras!

    • Thanks for the update David and for ALL the exciting news! PRAISE GOD!!! 🙂 All Glory be unto our heavenly Father! He IS DOING such GREAT and awesome things; so that the WHOLE WORLD will see and KNOW HE IS! 🙂 Sometimes we don’t think God is doing much of anything; yet, even in the next few minutes, or hours we can look behind us and see God’s hand of blessing! He INCREASES MY FAITH continually! Thank You, Lord!

  10. Greetings Elias;
    I am sorry I just got this posted; I have been gone. It is a prayer I bring before all of you who read this blog. Please pray as Elias has asked and as Holy Spirit guides you…for the nation of KENYA!

    Subject: Re: Prayer for my country

    Hai sister Judy,
    It has taken some days since i heard from you.I have read your mail today though you sent it long time ago.There was a network problem that is way i was not able to write to you.

    I am sure you know what is Al – Qaeda.The same organization is in Africa with its head quoter in a country called Somalia.In Somalia they call themselves Al-Shabaab but it is the same people. Somalia borders Kenya in the North eastern boarder.
    This country has stayed for 21 years having no law and no government. Most of the terrorist are trained there .

    This Al- Shabaab brought great problem in our country about 3 weeks ago.Right now as i talk to you here there is a great war between our troops and Al-Shabaab in Somalia.
    Our young people a great number is at war with this terrorist worldwide known organization.

    I say they are in Somali land not in the boarders.Our contry has been helped by some countries like ; USA,France,UK and many other nations of Africa.

    Don’t forget Somali is an Islamic nation with 0% Christianity.

    My prayer item this month is that you pray for my nation.It is a very tense war but victory is on Kenya side.
    Pass my greetings to Graham.

    In Christ,
    Pr Elias.
