Whats Going on in the Life of the Ward's
This Blog is my quarterly update's on what's happening in our life
In September of 2011 I set out on a four month faith journey with the Lord that included recording my album "I Will Go" traveling the U.K. for three weeks and going home to Alaska. I set out on this journey to align myself in the heart of the Lord in a greater way. My prayer was that He would do a work deep inside of me preparing me for the coming years of ministry ahead. I knew I would understand more of what was happening when the journey was over. During this time I was asking the Lord the question if He might have something new for me and I was to continue to make Kona my home. I was very open to whatever He might speak or lead me into. There where many days that I started to think I might be moving on, but I never heard clearly. When I was home in Alaska the Lord spoke to me and said He was not answering that question right then and I would know when I returned back to Kona.
As I came back to Kona to start of 2012 my heart was filled with peace. All of a sudden all my wondering and wrestling over what might be ahead just came into clarity and I knew that my time in Kona was not done and it was to continue to be the place I base out of. A peace and joy flooded my soul as I knew that this was my community and that He still had so much for me here. In coming back I realized how deep of a work the Lord had done in me and changed and refreshed I really felt. As I entered into 2012 I felt like I was in the healthiest place I have ever been in my life in every way and I was not to go back to the way I was doing things before. The Lord was transitioning me into a new place in ministry and doors where being opened. I can honestly say that this last month has been amazing as I am learning to walk more and more in what the Lord has placed on my life. There is fresh confidence and vision inside of me. I have been spent my time teaching in the Fire and Fragrance School, running a women's interactive class on overcoming, writing, mentoring, singing on two different sets in the Prayer Room, corporate worship, one on one ministry and just being who I am. Its been so amazing, I feel such freedom as I move more and more into an oversight roll and just learning to be a spiritual momma and release what is in me. He has been teaching me more about how He has designed me and given my authority in. I have realized that one of the main areas I have authority in, is in the area of "overcoming" and I just wrote a chapter for an upcoming book that I am excited about, as well as teaching on this subject. It has become on of the core messages of my life. I am also been walking in more understanding of how to train, pastor, and equip in the areas of the prophetic and am excited to go deeper into that here in YWAM and other doors the Lord is opening. So I am happy to report that I am in a amazing season and so filled with excitement for this year and all that God has in store.
I will be in Kona doing what I have been till the second week of March where I hit the road again to minster all over the place. I will be traveling around the world and back forth from Kona through August. June-August I will be running with the Circuit Rider School's we are Running all over the U.S. and U.K. I am excited for what is ahead! I have some real need to be able to do all of this, and would love your prayers and financial support as I step into it all.
I Need Your Help & Support
There are some amazing doors opening for me in the area of ministry but I am in great need of finances in order to do them. As you know I live complete on missionary support and presently I am really needing to increase my monthly support in order to keep going. I also have some immediate need for an upcoming trip. I am needing to purchase airfare for a trip to Ireland to do a pastoral visit for our long term team out there and to Hernhut, Germany to speak in our Fire and Fragrance DTS. My airfare for this is not covered at all or any of the travel expenses associated with it. This immediate need is $1600. I will also be needing to raise increased support for the travel this spring to the Circuit Rider Schools. Will you please pray about giving monthly or towards my immediate need. It is because of generous people who believe in what I am doing that makes it possible to "go". You can give on Pay Pal or tax deductible at University of the Nations.
