Whats Going on in the Life of the Ward's
This Blog is my quarterly update's on what's happening in our life
Circuit Rider Summer of Love
I head back to Pasadena tomorrow after an amazing summer! For the last three summers we have run our Circuit Rider schools and each year I stand amazed and in awe of all the Lord has done!
Last time I checked in with you all I was coming back from Fiji Circuit Rider’s and Samoa. I went strait from there into back to back Circuit Rider schools in LA, Lancaster, PA and Kansas City.
As the summer ended we realized for every minute the Circuit Rider School's spent on outreach we averaged A SOUL SAVED A MINIUTE! Hundred’s healed, and over 1500 students trained!!!
One night during the LA school we where in Hollywood at the Radiance House of prayer. During that time I believe something revolutionary happened as Brian Brennt spoke from a extreme place of vulnerability and authority on Love. Something supernatural happened as a LOVE REVOLUTION was birthed in our hearts and lives and in the heart of Hollywood. That night, I believe forever changed my life. During this week we saw a movement of unity and love! As I live in Southern California this week was especially close to my heart.
Nothing could have prepared us for what happened in Lancaster, PA! Close to 400 students signed up for the school but the evening’s where open to the public. Each night swelled in numbers until we where around 2000. Two nights into it as Andy Byrd was speaking and the people where reading the headlines out of the bible, the headline “Jesus rises from the dead” was read and repeated and at that moment something earth shattering happened with what we now refer to as the “Lancaster Roar” where the room spontaneously erupted into a deafening roar of over a 100 decimals and would not end, as people rushed the front of the room as we responded in worship. From that moment on the momentum built and in my entire life have never seen anything like this. Unity, Love and fully abandoned worship! I believe I will look back on that week as a game changer! Undone by it all!
Always amazing to be with our IHOP family in KC. Greater unity and love continued to flow, greater faith for America.
From KC back to LA, where we prepared to put up our first tent in the parking lot of USC campus. I was a very proud big sister as Nick Brennt was at the helm of this with the help of our communities. The tent was made for 1000 people and we did all we could do to gather for the birth of One Love: The Beginning. It took an entire day to put the tent up and we had no idea how many would come. We stood amazed on Aug 21st as the tent was filled! Brian Brennt and Heidi Baker dropped the love message with amazing bands and our amazing radical servant teams! One Love: The Beginning was born! All about loving the one!
A couple days later I flew out to Ireland to meet up with our mobile Fire & Fragrance Ireland team. I have been in Sligo, Ireland this last week teaching, sleeping in a hostel with every corner filled with people. Always great to be with our wider family and in a nation I love.
Tonight is my last night here in Shannon, Ireland ready to fly back to LA tomorrow!
This next three weeks I will home in Pasadena. I am so excited to have three weeks home (even though its over 100 degrees). I will be spending time with our So Cal family as there is changes happening and so much to do! I am exhausted, but so full of love and faith! I really feel like this Sept the Lord is releasing great blueprints for His heart for America and how to move forward from here. There really is a movement of the real Love of Jesus happening! I am continually motivated by simple obedience and the changes in history it makes!
In Oct I will be headed to Tennessee, Norway and Denmark!
Through doing all of this I have taken quite the financial hit as well as I have had some large unexpected expenses and bills (some from past medical emergency’s). I am really in need of some financial breakthrough right now. Please pray for the breakthrough as well if you would like to give you can do so tax deductible here or on Pay Pal.
