I posted on Facebook asking for prayer for the outreach we had scheduled. If you prayed, I need to let you know that your prayers worked… our God definitely answered supernaturally.

One day before the outreach the forecast was for 25mm of rain over the hours we wanted to be reaching out. Much credit must go to the worship team from Life Outreach Church, who set their equipment up in the rain… all the while praying for a ‘window’ of time where the rain would stop and we could share the Gospel.

Not only did the rain stop for the time we asked for... it continued to rain heavily in all of the areas around us where farmers desperately need moisture.

The rain held off until we stopped preaching, singing and giving out food to the more than 100 people who showed up, when even just a few hours earlier in the day it looked like there was no chance anyone would show up in the pouring rain.

Thank you for your prayers!! Inner-city people prayed to receive Christ. God is so good!!

How to reach a community during a pandemic

Christmas Cheer.Go

So this is how my local church impacted hundreds of lives at Christmas time. For more than 15 years, we've hosted a huge community meal where often would feed as many as 1000 people in one setting. This couldn't happen this year, so instead of doing nothing because the people couldn't come to us, we went to them with a full Christmas meal for their family. We didn’t just bring a box of food, but also a Bible, a game, a gingerbread house and a magnet we designed with a prayer of protection on it. It was great to pray for so many people as we dropped the boxes of ‘Christmas Cheer’ off! We impacted over 800 people in 200 homes in our inner city.

Inside of their dreams

Recently walked out of our inner-city church building to see a very disturbed & dejected man, head in his hands, sitting on the sidewalk. He called out to me for help, telling me that he had a 'ghost-spirit' inside of him that wouldn't let him have peace. He said this spirit crawled under his skin and tormented him continually. He told me that he first saw this spirit at a man's home a few years ago, and I was there and told it to go away and it did.
I knew the home and the man he spoke of, but don't recall ever doing what he said. This is not the first time God has done this... where He literally put me inside someone else's thoughts or dreams. A few years ago a man stopped me on the street and said, "I saw you in my dream." I asked him what I was doing in his dream, and he replied, "You were telling me all about Jesus." The next step was easy... I proceeded to tell the man about Jesus, just like he saw me doing in the dream.
For the man on the steps of the church yesterday, it was the same sort of thing... a divine set-up... a God connection. I proceeded to pray for the man in the name of Jesus, telling the evil spirit tormenting his life to leave him - and it did. He was at peace while we sat on the sidewalk together after our prayer. This is not unlike what God did with Saul after his encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus. God put Ananias in Saul's dream... and used Ananias to bring sight back to Saul.
We are living in a day and age where fearful and desperate people are crying out to God. Are you ready to be deployed by Him should He put you inside someone's thoughts or dreams?

'Tis the season

What a season we are in. Online teaching & mentoring has become part of our lives for this time. I was recently able to share in a morning teaching session with pastors and leaders in Singapore and the Philippines. They are 14 time zones ahead of us and yet we are one in following the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. We are able to make global impact even in this season when borders are shut down... we shall not be silent.
