Whats Going on in the Life of the Ward's
This Blog is my quarterly update's on what's happening in our life
Well its been an amazing start to 2010. Since the beginning of January I have been leading a Fire and Fragrance DTS and just sent them out on outreach a couple weeks ago. I had 69 students and 20 staff. With every school I lead I am overwhelmed by the honor of leading these amazing world changers. We sent out 9 outreach teams into the nations of America East Coast and Ivy League Colleges, 2 throughout Europe, Afghanistan, China, Japan, Guam, New Zealand, Haiti, and one here in Hawaii. Already the testimonies that are coming back are full of healing, salvation, changed lives and the Kingdom of Heaven coming to earth through these teams.
There is so many amazing things that are happening right now all over the world. I have the privilege of being apart of and seeing these things happen here through YWAM. I just want to share a few of them with you.
In Vanuatu (an island nation in the pacific) recently their education had decided they want all their education curriculum to be base on Biblical Christian Principles!! After researching the different kinds of education they decided that YWAM had the best available. So from now on from pre-school through high school their entire nation will be taught the Gospel and have opportunities to receive Jesus and will be founded on Christian principles!!! We can expect great things from this little nation soon.
Recently on campus we had a committee from all of the world from nuclear scientist, bankers, the film director of Spider Man, and lots of Government leaders meeting on campus here in Kona to straegize a plan to rebuild Haiti on Biblical foundations and principles. A YWAMER named Terry Snow has been working there for 20 years and have been in position to disciple a whole nations! God is about to totally redeem a once very wealthy nation, who then dedicated themselves to Satan for 200 years, became the one of the poorest about to reverse the whole thing!
One of my students Jasen Chung from the first DTS I lead here in Kona last year have just planted a House of Prayer in Haiti. I have an outreach team there now and they are living tents and salvation and healing is breaking out and the house of prayer has been established there.
Amsterdam, Holland a couple weeks ago we received a report that one of the two abortion clinics in Amsterdam had been shut down, and the other is on the verge of shutting down. I have a team there now seeing salvation and I am heading there on Tuesday.
A king in a very closed Nation (I can't say) met a friend of ours and she was able to talk with and hand him a bible. She was not sure how the King would respond thinking she could get into an intense situation. The king replied that he used to be an atheist until he read the Old Testament and heard the story of King Solomon. He had been looking for a Bible and wanted to read one. He was excited to receive it and promised to read the life of Jesus and the New Testament!!!!
China right now has the largest church in the world!! We are experiencing the largest move of God in history right now with the things that are happening there!! I have a team there now.
Christianity is growing 3 to 4 times faster then Islam!!!
We have teams in the Yale Campus and one of the Professors of Science was saved. Salvation and healing is breaking out on the Ivy League Campuses and Revival is coming there!
No matter where you are in the world right now or what you are doing I wanted you to hear of just a couple things happening because the earth is shaking and the Lord is moving in the nations of the world. We are living in times that are darkening in many ways but the Light of the World is being seen and His Spirit is being poured out!
On a personal front here is what is happening with me the next couple months. I leave on Tuesday April 2oth and I will be visiting my teams in New Zealand and Washington D.C. I am back in Kona on May 5th. The following week I start teaching in 3 DTS's back to back, two here in Kona and one in Maui. Then I head to Alaska for a few days then back to Kona to meet my returning outreach teams to debrief them. I head into training my staff for the upcoming Fire and Fragrance School of Revival and Reformation starting on July 8th. So yeah, there is a lot going on for me but again its is so amazing to be apart of training so many people that are going into the nations of the world bringing Revival and Reformation. I love what I get to do!
The other day I was out in the community and I saw a lady on crutches with her two teenagers. I got out of my car and went and talked with her and I asked to pray for her and she said yes. The Lord gave me words for her about her life, she was weeping and she felt the Lord very strong. Her kids stood their wide eyed and when they left to get into their taxi she did not need to use her crutches!!!!!!
I am doing pretty well health wise, still on a journey with all of that! But I am seeing the faithfulness of the Lord through it all. The Lord is always working on my heart and taking me through things that I know if I respond rightly will only bring me closer to His heart.
I am in a great need financially. In all that I am doing its so hard to deal with sometimes but its just apart of it all I guess. I have and some very large medical expenses and then recently some large unexpected expenses. I have incurred debt and am really trying to pay that off. My car recently broke down and its time for something new, but I am not able to do anything about that at the moment. Then I have these upcoming trips to visit outreach teams. I know so many of you are in similar places and have blessed me in so many ways. If any of you are interested in supporting me one time or on a monthly basis please reply to this and let me know.
