A Cry in the Middle of America
2014 Year End Report
Crisis looms over our nation. As a nation, we like sheep, have gone astray and turned away from the Word of God. Apart from God’s mercy our way will lead to destruction. In September of 1999 a 24/7 cry of intercession was launched in the middle of America. Since that time, we have stood in a Joel 2:15 “Solemn Assembly” asking God that He would have mercy on our nation. Our full-time job is to stand as priests Midnight-6 AM crying out to God, “Spare Your people, Oh Lord. Have mercy on America!” (See Joel 2:15-17) Now more then ever do we need prayer all over America arising to the throne of God as a sweet smelling fragrance and a light in this dark world.
This past year, God opened many doors for us to minister:
Mission Trip to Haiti
Last January, we started our year with a mission trip to Haiti. We sowed into the lives of missionaries, native worship leaders and pastors. We helped lead worship and prayer meetings from small 20-30 leaders to thousands in attendance. We are excited about going yet again this coming January 5th.
Ministering to the Poor in the Inner City
God also opened up a door for us to begin ministering at our inner city prayer room called Hope City. In February, we began leading a worship set once a week and the Hope City service once a month.
Engagement/Buying A House
On April 4th, Theresa said yes to marrying me (Jonathan). That started a whirlwind four short months of buying a house (and having to paint the entire exterior!) and wedding planning. On our honeymoon, we just slept!
Our Wedding: Our Adventure Begins!
On August 16th we made covenant to spend the rest of our lives together. We look forward to what the future holds as we serve Jesus together!
Thank you for being a part of our ministry this past year. You are part of furthering the gospel of Jesus and bringing light to this dark world. We look forward to laboring with you this next year and many more to come!
Bringing Light to the Darkness
Meeting Not Just Physical but Eternal Needs As Well
We still need $551 for our trip to Haiti, $400 for lodging is due this Tuesday. Would you join us in laboring to see Jesus glorified in the nation of Haiti?
One of our weekly highlights is Tuesdays when we get to minister in the inner city at IHOPKC’s ministry called Hope City. There is something so wonderful about being able to sing and pray over the people in the room. We love being in the inner city asking God to bring light changing the dark atmosphere of the inner city.
Enjoying Two Months of Marriage
We had a great time at our wedding. Our only wish is that we could have visited with our guests more! We were blessed by how it all came together and how people came around us to serve us. Our heart for our wedding was that people would see Jesus through it. The most profound part of the wedding was our vows that we wrote from scripture and experiencing the presence of the Lord during our ceremony. We had a wonderful honeymoon in the beautiful mountains of North Georgia. It was the perfect combination of rest and adventure in the great outdoors. The last month we’ve been settling into our new house. It is definitely a huge life adjustment, but we really love it. Recently, friends who were visitingKansas City set us up with some bed gardens and fruit trees. We are grateful for all their knowledge and help. Our main goal right now is to create a long-term vision for our house and yard, and we really desire to partner with God and use our house to bless others and bring Him glory.
Our Adventure Begins with an Invitation to the Nations
Wednesday, September 10, 2014
On August 16th, we brought our lives and ministries together. Our wedding was a whirlwind of excitement celebrating with our family and friends. Many commented that they felt the presence of the Lord powerfully during the ceremony especially during our vows that we wrote for each other from the Scripture. We will give a more extensive update of our wedding in our next newsletter.
9½ Years of Full-Time Ministry
Last Ministry Update as a Single Person
This is my final ministry update to write alone because in four days, I will be getting married! Next month, you will receive an update from Jonathan & Theresa. I thought it would be good to use this “final” update to reflect upon the past 9½ years of ministry.
In 2004, I joined full-time staff at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City (IHOPKC). God spared no time to thrust me right into the call He had for my life as an intercessor. After receiving an email from Lou Engle inviting young adults to join him, I prayed for 50 days for revival in the 50 states of America. Our journey led us to the front of the Supreme Court with red tape over our mouth that said LIFE crying out for the ending of abortion. During that time, God touched my heart deeply for the unborn. Since that time, much of my ministry has been devoted to fighting abortion—not mostly in the natural but mostly on my knees in prayer. I am so grateful that God has given me His heart for these little ones!
