My heart is soaring with joy and amazement as I write this, looking back at what the Lord has done in the last 4 weeks since we started on with the Presence88 tour, going to every county in Ohio to release worship, prayer & judicial decrees. As of yesterday, Aug 1st, we completed 44 counties and are halfway through this journey. We left the house with $2.30, (no joke) , trusting the Lord and totally stepping out in faith, knowing that we had an assignment before us that we did not want to miss. And yes, oh yes, the Lord has proved himself faithful over and over again! To all those who caught the vision and joined along with your prayers and support - THANK YOU !!!!! We could not have done this without you and we are certainly glad that you are a part of this adventure. There is an unexplainable amount of grace to do something when the body of Christ comes together to support each other to get things moving. And the Lord orchestrates all of it. He works wonders behind the scenes, enjoying every bit of it, watching HIS children move together in unity! A lot has been released into the atmosphere in these past 4 weeks A lot more than we know. We don't have to know it all, but we do know that we poured out our best for HIM at every stop. Many of you have asked us,"how and where do you worship on this tour? Is this an event?" etc etc…
So i'll take this time to answer some questions and explain a bit of what we have done.
No, this is not another worship event. This has been something totally different. When we sought the Lord in May for specific direction on this assignment, HE gave us a route map and a schedule for two months that we could not have come up with ourselves in any way! The assignment given to us was to go to every county in Ohio (88 in all) just to release the Presence of Jesus at every spot, by worshipping HIM at every court house. Worship is and will always be our #1 priority, simply because HE is worthy of all our praise! So we roll into a county and gather at the court house premises, pull out our guitars and Ukuleles and we worship. There is no agenda or setlist. There is no crowd or spotlights. Our worship is purely for an audience of ONE. Most court houses have a gazebo or a park area with benches, which is really nice, but some don't. We have worshipped and danced like crazy people in some places where there wasn't a place to sit. As we worship, HE begins to move. He begins to speak. And then we release what we hear through this time of Worship. We have literally felt atmospheres shift during these times. A lot of prophetic words, songs and melodies have been birthed out from this time of worshiping and waiting for HIM to speak. In the end, HIS voice is all that matters. We have also released judicial prayers and decrees in every county so far, calling forth the justice of Heaven. ('Sure mercies of David' by Al Houghton is a book that we recommend). We worship some more, we wait some more. We make sure that the Father is done with us at each spot before we leave, no matter how long it takes. And then we drive into the next county and we do this all over again. There's a whole lot more that happens that I cannot put down in words here but this is what we were instructed to do and this is what we have done so far. In the process of doing this we have driven over 2000miles, ministered to many people on the way, made some new friends and got to meet and spend time with some good friends who were so kind and hospitable to host us at their house during our rest days in between. This might seem crazy to some of you… this whole worshiping at the court house deal. But what can I say, the Lord said to do it, we stepped out in Faith and HE made sure we had gas in the car to go, a place to stay and food & water to sustain us on the road. More than anything, my wife and I can truly say that its been an honor and a privilege to worship the KING at 44 counties so far.
Tomorrow begins the second half of the tour. We have more friends joining us in the days ahead and its gonna be great! It's getting better and better day by day and we are excited for what is ahead. Thank you again to all those who have supported us and prayed for us. It means a lot. Please continue to pray for us that we may finish strong. On Aug 30th, we are gathering worshippers from all over Ohio for a night of Worship at the 7 Days of Praise camp grounds in Groveport at 7:30PM. Come on out as we release an unified sound of worship from the capital city to the state and to the nation and the nations of the earth. More details on that at: http://www.7daysofpraise.com and http://www.trmi.weebly.com
We have seen and heard some great testimonies of what the Lord has done and is doing all over the world. Revival is truly here. Be faithful with what the Lord has given you and plow the ground where HE has placed you. HE is for you....and nothing can be against you! Greater things shall we see and hear in the days and months ahead. The best is yet to come!
With GOD all things are possible!
