OUR JOURNEY WITH JESUS

“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer”  (Psalm 19: 14).  Give thanks to the Lord, call on His name; make known among the nations what He has done.  Sing to Him, sing praise to Him; tell of all His wonderful acts.  Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.  Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always (Psalm 105: 1-4).

I have many of you who have sent comments that definately reveal how MUCH God is doing on behalf of His people.  The comments are praise reports and we need to acknowledge and lift JESUS high and do just what His Word tells us to do:  “THANK You Lord, we SING with joy and we give YOU ALL THE GLORY and PRAISE!  Holy Spirit, we ask that You will continue to lead and direct all of us who are actively seeking more of Jesus.  Connect us Father, with those who have hearts that have been prepared to receive Jesus as Lord.  Forgive any of us who have hearts that have grown cold and have forgotten their first love; revive us Lord!  Break us, remold us, and use us for Your purpose Lord and let Your glory fall in and through us to accomplish Your heart’s desire.  Amen.”  

I will be cutting and pasting a few testimonies that readers have sent to me; I ask that you will pray for them and also send them encouraging words as the Lord leads.  All of us have daily need of prayer and when Holy Spirit nudges you to send a word; do it!  It can strengthen your brother and sister at exactly the right time! 🙂  I was in Costa Rica for some continuing education (some relaxing too) and took many pictures and videos.  My husband put some music to the one I am including today and I pray it will reveal God’s Presence to you as it did to me.  He is CREATOR of all things beautiful and HE IS PEACE, HE INDWELLS all living things; therefore we are never alone!   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hu57RNQriY

I was watching a young Isaiah Jackson (5 years old) declaring God’s Word in a prayer over a large group of people, January 16, 2011.  I was touched greatly by God’s anointing as I listened to him.  I end this post with Isaiah’s prayer for I feel God will touch each of your lives dramatically as you receive HIM and ALL you have faith to believe Him for, as Isaiah prays.  To GOD BE ALL THE GLORY AND PRAISE that you are never too young, nor too old, to be used by Him!  Hallelujah!    http://www.youtube.com/watch?=yum__DM_uWg (if you can’t get this …go to You Tube and type in Isaiah Jackson and the one I have for you is with him declaring and prophesying).  Sorry for inconvenience!

    PRAYER UPDATE FROM ISRAEL (November 14, 2011)

    Recent cloud formation over Jerusalem.
    “Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving; Sing praises on the harp to our God, Who covers the heavens with clouds, Who prepares rain for the earth, Who makes grass to grow on the mountains. He gives to the beast its food, and to the young ravens that cry” (Psalm 147:7-9).
    WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR PRAYERS.
    TODAY THE RAINS CAME AGAIN.
    HODU LA’ADONAI KI TOV, KI LE’OLAM HASDO!
    Give thanks to the LORD for He is Good, and His lovingkindness endures forever!!

    1. THE IAEA REPORT IS RELEASED
    Last Tuesday International Atomic Energy Agency released a report, claiming for the first time to have “credible evidence” pointing towards a conclusion that Iran’s nuclear activities are by no means focused exclusively on development of nuclear power for peaceful uses; it is now a virtual certainty that the focus is on production of a nuclear weapon. The uneasy speculation highlighted in last week’s Update regarding Israel’s intentions given these circumstances, has only increased this week. A fascinating and informative article in Sunday’s British Telegraph spoke of President Obama’s “alarm” at Israel’s refusal to bow to Washington’s demand last month that the White House be notified before any Israeli strike be made against Iran (Google: Israel refuses to tell US its Iran intentions). After examining a number of opinions pro and con about the possibility or effectiveness of such an attack, the article ends by stating a factor very real to Israelis, while of little concern to others: “In Mr Netanyahu’s eyes, Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is another “Hitler” whose aim is to complete what the Holocaust failed to do by wiping out the Jewish race. ‘People outside Israel don’t understand how profound memories of the Holocaust are, and how they affect future policy making.At the end of the day, this policy of “never again” would dictate Israel’s behavior when intelligence comes through that Iran has come close to a bomb.'” (“Israel refuses to tell US its Iran intentions”: Adrian Blomfield, The Telegraph; 7:49PM GMT 12 Nov 2011).
    Meanwhile, an enormous explosion occurred this past Saturday at a military base 28 miles outside of Tehran, killing at least 17 Revolutionary Guards and being felt strongly in the capital. Among those killed was Brigadier General Hassan Moqaddam, whom one senior military official called “the main architect of the Revolutionary Guard’s’ canon and missile power and the founder of the deterrent power of our country.” This figure was so highly esteemed that Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei attended the ceremony mourning his death. The Iranians are officially calling the blast an accident occasioned by the repositioning of conventional explosives. Yet one western intelligence source told Time magazine that the Israeli Mosad was behind the explosion; and certain popular speculative sources are even claiming access to information that it was caused while a nuclear device was being placed on a missile. Sunday Prime Minister Netanyahu suggested to his government that Israel has information beyond that released by the IAEA report, “The IAEA’s report only detailed information that can be proven; facts that can be presented in court. In practice there are many other things we see, and hence the leading states in the world must decide what to do in order to stop Iran.The efforts thus far did not prevent Iran from progressing towards a bomb, and it is closer to acquiring it, sooner than what people think.”
    IN LIGHT OF THIS, WE BELIEVE IT APPROPRIATE TO REPEAT THE PRAYER POINTS FROM LAST WEEK:
    PLEASE PRAY:
    *

    That Israel will move in the timings and purposes of God regarding a response to the threats coming against her from Iran. “To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.a time for war, a time for peace” (Ecclesiastes 3:1,8b).
    * That the Lord would “Scatter the peoples who delight in war” (Psalm 68:30b).
    *That Israel’s leaders will look to the LORD as our rock, who trains our hand for war and our fingers for battle (Psalm 144:1). That they will realize, with David, that “the battle is the LORD’s” (I Samuel 17:47). During the flight of the jets which destroyed Sadam Hussein’s Osirak nuclear reactor in 1981, Prime Minister Menachem Begin spent the entire time pacing back and forth alone, deep in prayer.
    *That the God of Abraham will be a shield around Israel (Genesis 15:1), that she will look to Him to protect her from fear of the “terror of the night, from the arrows that fly by day” (Psalm 91:5).
    *That Believers in Israel will not be distracted from dwelling in the “secret place of Elyon (the Most High), abiding under the shadow of Shaddai (the Almighty)”-and that their faithfulness in this will draw others to desire to do likewise!
    *That God would protect His remnant in Iran-from denying their faith in the times of persecution, and from destruction should war break out.
    *That the godless leaders tyrannizing the people of Iran and cursing Israel would be replaced; that the bondage of a religion set against the covenant purposes of the Most High God would be broken.
    *That revelation would be released among the masses of that enormous land that the God of Israel is a God of Love, and that He has sent a Saviour to free all Humankind from the bondage of sin and despair.

    2. ALLIES, LEADERS, AND MUTUAL RESPECT
    “Therefore whatever you have spoken in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have spoken in the ear in inner rooms will be proclaimed on the housetops (Luke 12:3).
    “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes” (Psalm 118:9).
    Last week it came to light that during the recent G20 summit in Cannes, French President Sarkozy and American President Obama, thinking the microphones in their meeting room had been switched off, had the following exchange: Sarkozy: “I cannot bear Netanyahu anymore, he’s a liar.” Obama: “You may be sick of him, but me, I have to deal with him every day.” Reporters who were witness to this exchange were asked by officials to sign a confidentiality agreement agreeing to withhold the report; but it eventually leaked out and reporters from AP and Reuters confirmed that it had taken place. As the story made it into the media, there was embarrassed silence from all official quarters; but Sunday Israel’s Yedioth Ahronoth reported that Mr Sarkozy has sent a personal letter to the Israeli Prime Minister related to the IAEA’s report, promising strong and close cooperation with Israel on the issue of sanctions against Iran, and then signing the note in his own handwriting (a gesture not common in diplomatic correspondence) , “with friendship”. The White House released a statement to the affect that relations between Obama and Netanyahu are very good-in fact, that the President confers with Netanyahu more than with any other leader. Whether these will suffice, or there may be more verbalized official apologies forthcoming remains to be seen. For her part, Israel has chosen to take no official notice of the private exchange. We realize that leaders are human beings, and, as companions, apt to make loose, jocund remarks about mutually faced subjects of difficulty and perplexity. As one of Netanyahu’s deputies, Vice Premier Silvan Shalom remarked, “Everyone talks about everyone. Sometimes even good friends say things about each other, certainly in such competitive professions. So you have to consider the main things. Is Obama a friend of Israel? Is Sarkozy a friend of Israel? Is their policy a consistent policy of support for Israel? The answer to all of these questions is affirmative and, as far as I’m concerned, that is what’s important.” At the same time, to hear the leaders of two of Israel’s historically closest allies making remarks reflecting privately-held opinions of disrespect, even contempt for our leader, is painful and unsettling. It also says something about the honesty of their own oft-spoken public avowals of support and friendship.

    PLEASE PRAY:*

    That relations between France, the US and Israel would be strengthened.
    *That the faux pas of these two world-leaders would be resolved amicably.and with a genuine humility.
    *That Prime Minister Netanyahu would move graciously and in integrity.but, nevertheless, continue to move according to the integrity of his own heart-in honesty and truth, yet not being swayed by the opinion of man-even that of other leaders.

    Missions and Worship
    “May the nations be glad and sing for joy.” (PSALM 67:4)
    Scripture Focus: Psalm 67, Matthew 28

    “Missions exists because worship doesn’t,” writes John Piper in his treatise on missions, Let the Nations Be Glad! Piper makes a point here we ought not to miss. Often we are tempted to think that the goal of the church is to do missions, as if mission work itself were the objective. But Piper reminds us that the reason we do mission work is because our God is not yet receiving the praise and thanksgiving He so wonderfully deserves.

    You see, friends, our God is so great, so magnificent, so awesome (in the true sense of that word), so loving, so wise, so powerful, and so holy that all the nations of this world ought to bring Him praise. Just as Jesus came to this world as a humble servant in order to redeem us from false worship unto true worship, so He sends us into the world – humble and broken though we are – to bring other sinners to His feet. May the world’s lack of worship be the motivation in our missions. And may our worship cause the name of Jesus to be lifted high at home and abroad.

    IT’S A MOVEMENT!

    The work in Honduras has begun to explode. We have reached the critical level where what is happening can be called a
    CHURCH PLANTING MOVEMENT!

    The definition of a Church Planting Movement that we are using is a rapidly multiplying movement of churches planting churches in a distinct people or population. The measure that we are using is when there are at least 100 churches planted, 3 generations deep within 2 years.

    By God’s grace, the work in Honduras has crossed this line this year! We now have
    • 159 churches
    • 3 generations deep,
    • within the last 2 years
    It IS a
    Church Planting Movement!

    See the video…

    JAMAICA MISSION UPDATE – NOVEMBER 2011
    “..No one, when he has lit a lamp, covers it with a vessel or puts it under a bed, but sets it on a lamp stand, that those who enter may see the light.” Luke 8:16 (NKJV)
    *********
    This month has been more exciting than usual. Along with our regular outreach activities, Mike spoke at two more churches and taught an evangelism class at the Youth With A Mission Base in Newport , Manchester , Jamaica (about an hour and a half from Kingston ).

    Spoken Word Caribbean, Runaway Bay , St. Ann , Jamaica

    Sunday, October 30th, Alice and I drove over to Runaway Bay to visit with our good friend Bill Zorn. Bill and his wife, Linda, are missionaries like us who have migrated to Jamaica . They have a bible school, and have a lovely congregation. They are very involved with their community. Also, what is cool is that their ministry draws young men and boys. Amen!

    Alice ministered in song and shared her testimony—that was sweet and powerful. I preached from Mark 5: 1-7, about the man who had the legion of demons. The Lord pointed out to me that with all those demons and darkness over him, when he saw Jesus, the Light, he recognized God, ran and worshipped. But, the demons were only worried about being tormented, and wanted to get away from Jesus. Interesting also is that in verses 3-5, the places that the demons took the man were dark and indecent. We know people like this who are bound in sin and do outrageous disgusting things.

    After the man was set free he wanted to follow Jesus. Jesus told him to go home and glorify God for His mercy that He showed to him. When Jesus returned to that region, Decapolis, the people wanted to come and see Jesus, because of that man’s evangelism. At that time Jesus fed the 4,000. (Thanks Bill for a wonderful time in the Lord!!)

    Divine Purpose Ministries, Spaulding, Manchester, Jamaica

    On Sunday, November 6, we visited with our new friends in Christ, Pastors Martin and Joy Richards. Of course, once people know Alice sings–that is it. Alice sang, ministered and testified. I also preached from Matthew 3: 1-12. Two things popped out in these scriptures: Why would anyone try to fellowship with a viper? Who, in their right mind thinks they can have communion with snakes? The other thing is that the axe (of the Lord) is still being laid to the root of the trees that don’t bring forth good fruit, and are cast into the fire. Whew!!!

    Pastor Joy is a Holy Ghost filled preaching and prophesying machine. Their congregation is full of life changing and evangelical testimonies. Alice and I are so appreciative of our new family in Christ.

    Youth With a Mission , Stones Hope, Newport , Manchester , Jamaica

    November 7 through 11, Mike taught evangelism classes as part of the Discipleship Training School (DTS) at the Youth With a Mission Base in Newport , Manchester . The focus of the class was: Winning the Lost. Mike’s theme for the class was Evangelism: Let’s Find Out What God Wants.

    The staff at YWAM really liked Mike’s approach to teaching evangelism, and also they liked the topics and areas he chose to present. Mike had a great time sharing his heart, and his hands-on experience of over 35 years in missions and street evangelism.

    Here are some comments from the students.
    “Thank you for sharing your life with us and challenging us to greater service.” Raymond from Jamaica

    “Your teaching helped identify what the Lord had already put in me, and helped me realize that the ideas I have for evangelism are possible.” Steve from Colorado, USA

    “The class strengthened my desire to share the gospel, and also showed me how to develop my ministry.” Jean-Carlos from Haiti

    “Thank you for your testimonies and encouraging us. Your teachings made everything so practical. May you continue to make yourself available to be used by God. Blessings. Anna from Jamaica

    “Thank you for coming and sharing your heart with us. Thank you for helping me recognize the vision God has for me. Can’t wait to come and serve with you both. Be blessed. Lori from Colorado USA .

    “Thank you for coming and blessing us. It was a pleasure having both of you with us. DTS Director, Jannel MacDonald.

    Mike says the students were such a blessing, and he learned from them too and he was inspired by their zeal for God.

    *******
    Pledge Request

    Alice and I would like to ask everyone that receives our newsletters and appreciates what the Lord is doing here in Kingston and throughout Jamaica , to make a pledge of at least $5.00 US dollars a month. For everyone who is already giving, thank you, and please continue to do so. Every month we are behind. This makes it almost impossible to plan things for God’s work. Five dollars ($5.00) may seem like an embarrassingly small amount to give, but it’s not: remember the widow and the two mites. In Jamaica, there is a saying, “one, one coco, full basket”, which means that if everyone can give just give what you got, the next thing you know you have a full basket. There is so much more to be done here, but we need more finances.

    We thank everyone for their love and consideration. The Lord Bless You.

    . Prayer Requests
    –For Gabriele Anderson (the three year old daughter of our good friends here in Jamaica ) who has of Sickle Cell Anemia that has affected her walking. Please pray for her total healing and that her parents will be strengthened

    –For our fellow Missionary to Jamaica, Linda Zorn, with whom we are standing believing that her healing from cancer will be completed and she can return to the great work that her and husband Bill have established in Runaway Bay on the North Coast of Jamaica.

    –For all the young men in the communities, that peace will be maintained during the upcoming elections and that they will not be coerced to violence.

    –For all the children who attend Jesus Kids Clubs, that their hearts will be healed and opened to receiving the Lord, and in doing so, they will see what a precious gift that life is, and that with the Lord all things are possible!

    –For the pregnant teenage girls and teenage mothers who we minister to in Jones Town.

    Dear Judy!!!

    This is very agent prayer request to pray for us and your prayer worriors out there.From the last many years we are maintaining a Children Home with 160 Orphans and 60 widows, by faith we are doing this wonderful service for the Father and Motherless children, through this Children Home many Children became as Pastors and evangelists and some Jobs, lord helped us very much to maintain this children home from the last many years, but now from the last few months we are facing many troubles to provide daily food due to lack of financial support, really the children are suffering very much due to lack of sufficient food every day, all the Orphans praying and looking for gods help,. Now lord inspired me to write a letter to you for your kind help and love.

    I request you please pray for this orphans home and kindly help me to provide daily food to these orphans, all these orphans are looking for your kind help and love, please convey our troubles and needs to your people and ask them to help for orphans and please give my address to some people to help for the Orphans Home.either they can help us through Money Gram,or Western Union under Arise Children Uganda Project.
    Hoping to hearing from you again and seeing how God leads

    Pastor Magumba Carlos Waiswa Uganda.

    • It seems that there are many out there who need to be “fed and clothed” both physically and spiritually. I am of the belief that none of us are exempt from reaching out to those in need. It is a command which is addressed throughout all scripture (“love your neighbor as yourself; you will laways have the poor; look after the orphans and the widows in their distress, etc.). All we have is God’s; He has given many of us great blessing in our opportunity to live in countries that have allowed us to have income through a job. It is not given to us to hoard; but to joyfully share with those who have much less fortunate circumstances to deal with. There are many who would “jump on this statement” with all kinds of petty objections and judgments, but the truth is the truth.

      We often have a little more than our neighbor; wherever we live; yet there are still millions who go daily without even a little food and it is not because of anything they have or have not done.

      Pastor Carlos has pointed out, he and his church family, even in their own poverty, reach out to help those with even less. Sounds familiar to me…Revelation 2: 8-11 is what I hear from many. If you are part of this group; REJOICE, for you also have been blessed with great spiritual riches…some of which you must share with those who have worldly wealth, but are still starving and poor where it matters in the end!

      I encourage each of you to take the words that Jamaica pastors (as an example) have written…even $5 dollars can be of great help and if each gives a little…soon the pot is full! Praise the Lord! LORD give us hearts for You and then for others; faith to believe YOU will provide all that we need.

    Evangelism and Worship
    “So he will fall down and worship God, exclaiming, ‘God is really among you!'” (1 CORINTHIANS 14:25)
    Scripture Focus: 1 Corinthians 14:20-25, Romans 10:5-21

    If you’re like most Christians, you probably struggle at some level with the task of evangelism. You desire and pray for your non-Christian family members and friends to come to know Jesus Christ as their Savior, but speaking about spiritual matters (especially in our current culture) is often difficult. How, then, can we bring our friends into an encounter with God?

    While our first reading for today is not without complexities, one clear truth emerges that helps us answer that question. Paul says that if an unbeliever enters the gathered worship service of the church and hears “everyone prophesying” (i.e., speaking the Word of God), he will be convinced he is a sinner and will acknowledge God’s presence among His church. Of course, this doesn’t always happen, but this passage does encourage us that God meets us in worship, and those who enter will hear His voice. While a humble church service may not be the place we would expect God to meet with sinners and convert them, God does have a habit of doing the unexpected.

  8. Prayer Requests for November 14-20, 2011
    PRAISE REPORTS!

    Psalm 126:2
    Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, “The LORD has done great things for them.”

    This scripture seems appropriate today. God is truly doing amazing things in Honduras! Our hearts are filled with joy and thanksgiving to God for what He is doing.
    A Church Planting Movement has begun. God birthed a vision for a church planting movement in Honduras in our hearts in 2006. After nearly 2 years of preparation, the Honduras Church Planting Movement Project was launched in mid-2008. The 3 and ½ years since then have been times of hard work, sacrifice and even persecution. There have been surges forward and setbacks! In an article that I have written on our blog I have charted the journey. You can read it at http://wmeinc.blogspot.com/2011/11/road-to-breakthrough.html
    But to summarize here, we are defining a Church Planting Movement as a rapidly reproducing movement of churches planting churches within a people or population. This is measured in different ways, but the definition that we are using is at least 100 churches, 3 generations deep (meaning planting a church planting that plants a church that plants a church), within 2 years or less.
    That has now happened and continues to happen in Honduras. We have just received reports that the159th church has been planted there as a result of this project and that there are 3 generations of churches….and that the specific movement is less than 2 years old. Praise be to our God! In fact 98 of the churches have been planted in the last 6 months! God is moving and I believe that your prayers have been a great and important part of what God is doing.
    AND IN OTHER NEWS! JUANITA TRAVIS RECEIVED HER VISA AND SHE AND KEITH ARE IN THE UNITED STATES RIGHT NOW! This is a battle that has been going on for multiple years and we are so thankful for this answer!

    PRAYER REQUESTS:
    1. This week we are asking for prayer for the Whole scope of the HCPM project. Please pray for the Key leaders in Honduras: Beto, Adiel, Jacobo, Daniel, Mario, Oscar, and Carlos. Pray for the strategy team: Randy and Linda Travis, Keith and Juanita Travis. Pray for the staff at the WME office in the US: Jenny Demumbree, Lindsay Harlan, David Parish, J. T. Parish. Pray for health and protection for all of these and their families. Pray for wisdom and anointing and special leadership from the Holy Spirit for all of these people as they work toward seeing the CPM in Honduras move forward.
    2. Pray for all the people and leaders involved in all the churches and discovery Bible studies. Pray that all of the new believers will grow in knowledge and obedience to the Word of God and that those who have not become followers of Christ yet will do so very soon. Pray that the churches and DBS groups will multiply across the nation of Honduras.

    3. Pray for the preparation of 2 important training events planned for February 2012 in 2 regions of Honduras. Pray that the seed will be sown and that many others will begin in the work of cpm because of it.

    4. Pray that the workers in the field will find true people of peace who will open the doors of their hearts, families, and villages to the gospel.

    5. Pray for a gracious outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the new churches, DBS groups, and villages and families where the gospel is about to go. Pray that God’s Spirit will birth true revival and an exponential disciple making and church planting movement across the whole nation.

    6. Pray that at least 5000 new churches will be planted among the general population of Honduras and an additional 3000 churches among the whole Garifuna people group throughout Central America.

    7. Pray for the finances and resources needed in order to continue to conduct the project. God is the provider and it is His work. Help us pray for key provision that is needed. There is a very real need here.

    8. Pray for David Watson, the pioneer leader in church planting movements who has trained and mentored us in this strategy. He is battling health problems and is scheduled for 4 surgeries before the end of this year (depending on his recovery time from the first surgeries.) Please pray for his total healing and recovery.

    9. Pray for all the new churches and especially for the pre-church Discovery bible studies. Especially in the DBS areas there is much religious persecution and pressure. Threats are made against the people in the studies, not necessarily physically, but much pressure to go back. Pray for all these people like the early church prayed in Acts 4:23-31. Pray for God to work in a mighty way so that even by signs and wonders His work will go forward and that people will be emboldened to continue with the DBS studies and become obedient followers of Jesus.

  9. Thanks for forwarding this on to the readers Doug. It really speaks the message of the Gospel and God’s faithful love for His people! 🙂

    It is for you to seek and receive in all circumstances.

    I hold back no good things from My beloved.
    I delight in giving all to you freely.
    Expound on My goodness to others.

    Dear Friends,

    I just wanted to give you an update on what’s going on with me and in Mongolia. As most of you know I returned to the U.S. in early October because of a family situation and for my own health. I praise God for His faithfulness in our family. He has done a great miracle and what had seemed impossible is now better than we could have imagined.

    I am now concentrating on my health. For the most part, it is still the ringing in the ears with loss of hearing. I am taking some treatment now, but will wait until after my Medicare health insurance changes in January to see a specialist.

    While I am here, Baagii is working hard back in Mongolia. She has had to take over everything that we were doing together. When I left, she had to teach the complete week at the YWAM Discipleship Training school by herself. We usually share the load! She did a great job and received great reviews. She continues to lead our intercessory prayer teams and is connecting with people throughout the nation on our network.
    Please continue to pray for Baagii and the others in Mongolia. God is doing amazing things there and we see the Church continuing to move forward in the destiny God has for her.

    We are already planning for next Spring and Summer when I return to Mongolia. Because of my quick return home, we were only able to go to one gate this year, but it was a strategic one. While I am here in the U.S. I hope to raise enough support to complete our assignment of praying at the gates on the south border into China and then move to the north where we have eight gates to finish there. The east and west are completed.

    All of the support I receive for the ministry goes directly to Mongolia. Even though I am here, we still have an apartment to maintain, along with living expenses for Baagii. We also have a separate account for travel to the gates. Thank you for continuing to give while I am home.

    One need I have while I am home is a car so I can get around. I am staying with my family, but they don’t have anything extra for me to use. I plan to be here through the Spring and if I had transportation, I could possibly find a part-time job. If you know of anyone who might have one I could borrow, please let me know. You can call me at 972-832-6284.

    Thank you all again for your prayers, encouragement and support. You are in my prayers!

    Blessings,
    Joy

    Please be sure to designate it to Mongolia Missions/Joy Preston

    • Dear Joy;
      I give praise to the Lord for all that He is doing through Baagii, even though she had to go ahead without your help. God ALWAYS gives us all that we need to get things accomplished in His kingdom advancement!
      I join with you in praise for all He is doing in your family situation.

      I am asking God for complete healing of your tinnitus and hearing loss. You need your hearing; so,

      “God I ask that You touch and heal Joy’s ear problem now, in Jesus name. I ask that You will give her complete and rapid healing to enable her to do whatever You have purposed for her to do in the coming days; we KNOW that what You have started will be completed and we give You all the glory! I lift Baagii and the other leaders to You and ask for their continued courage, wisdom, revelation, and strength, in Jesus name. I declare, in Jesus name, that Your work in Mongolia will not be hindered in any way, that it will go forward in Your perfect timing and for Your glory. Amen.”

      God bless you all.

      • Thank you Judy for your prayers and encouragement not just to me but for the Body of Christ you minister to through your communication. It truly is a blessing!

  11. “To glorify Me is to reflect, in praise, My character in your lives. To mount up with wings as eagles, higher and higher, to soar ever nearer to Me. To praise Me is to sing with great abandon and joy. When I say, “Rejoice, Rejoice,” I am training you to express this in your whole natures. That is the Music of Heaven, the glorifying Me, through sanctified lives and devoted hearts of love.”
