I am 2 weeks away from getting on a plane that will take me to Asia once again. Spring 2017 DTS lecture phase is almost over and outreach to Bangladesh is about to start! I am so excited to be co-leading this team with Dana and to take 5 students into this wild nation.

Lecture phase has been jam packed with the greatest of revelations, breakthroughs and encounters with the One Living God. We have had lectures including Father Heart of God, Character and Nature of God, Hearing God’s Voice, Bible Overview, Holy Spirit, Apologetics, Fear of the Lord, and Identity. Every week has been impactful in significant ways, receiving new and fresh revelation from every speaker through content, the word of God and His presence.

One of my favorite weeks was the week on Fear of the Lord. I have never heard a lecture week on this topic before. I was very intrigued to find out what it would all be about. Our teacher Mike Brown, from YWAM Kona came and brought the fire. The Lord brought conviction and placed burdens on my heart to see a generation and myself walk out in a holy fear of God.

 “We cannot truly love God until we fear Him, nor can we properly fear Him until we love Him.” –John Bevere

We learned so much about how the friends of God are the ones that Fear God. Being God’s friend comes with an understanding and walking in reverence and awe of our All Powerful, Infinite, Almighty King of Kings and Lord of Lords that sits on the throne forevermore. It’s about Lordship and realizing what we fear is what we will worship, if we fear man more than God, we will worship man. Lordship is surrendering our whole lives to God, and understanding that He is our Master and Lord.

The Lord has lit a fire inside of me that longs to see this generation have a heart posture of fear of the Lord. A heart posture that motivates us to walk in radical obedience to the Lord, that brings transformation to nations, and brings freedom to people.

There are 2 flames that simultaneously burn together: That God is both Love and Holy. Together we can have a Holy fear of God and reverence towards Him.

“By those who come near Me I must be regarded as holy; and before all people I must be glorified.”  -Leviticus 10:3

 And we can see His unconditional love and understand the GOODNESS of God.

“For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.” – Psalm 100:5

This week of lectures was huge and brought us into deeper intimacy with Jesus as a Spring DTS. These last 2 months have been full of encounters with God, not just in lectures but as we have grown together as a team. Through going out and doing community outreach and learning about Bangladesh and how we can best minister to the people of this nation. We are so stoked to be going to Bangladesh for the next 2 months, where we will get to do ministry, such as street evangelism, teaching in local churches, house visits (prayer for healing and sharing the gospel) children’s ministry, university ministry and much more.

Please be praying for my team as we go into this nation!

Pray for:

–       Supernatural protection over our whole team

–        Open hearts for the people to hear the gospel and respond

–        False beliefs and lies to be shattered so the truth can come in

–        Team unity

Blessings!

News Update May 2017

Over the previous three months we have had the honor of graduating 34 students in the Fall DTS + SBFM and releasing them back into the seven spheres of influence. We also have commissioned out the Winter DTS and SFMI teams to the nations. It has been a trimester of seeing individuals give their lives to the Lord and become the hands and feet of Him in the nations. People were healed and hearts were given over to the Lord through the teams on outreach.

With much joy our Spring Discipleship Training School has begun and has started very strong. The school has five students and they are on their fourth week of lecture phase. They have heard Donna Jordan teach on hearing the voice of God and Ben Nonoa speak on the father heart of God. The theme for this school is modeled after David’s character in the Bible: to be men and women after God’s own heart.

“I have found in David the son of Jesse a man after my heart, who will do all my will.” Acts 13:22 ESV

Currently our base has three teams in the nations on outreach from our Winter DTS school! The Surfers For Missions International team in Taiwan and Indonesia has had the opportunity to be involved in communities and be able to walk out in freedom in sharing the gospel. The team was able to play worship and share testimonies at an open mic night in Taiwan and teach English in a middle school. The Lord is truly doing a mighty work in the nations!

When asked a highlight so far from Outreach Leader Timon Bischof he shared a recent story:

“Some of us went out to pray for people the other week  and God guided us in crazy ways. We left with no plans and no translator. We asked a couple people if we could pray for them but they mostly said no. At one point we were talking about the difficulty we were having with the language barrier. Out of nowhere we met one of our friends and he offered to come help us translate. He directed us to go to the Arts Center because there would be more people walking around there. We met a man by a bus station. After talking a bit we were able to pray over pain in his leg. After a couple rounds of prayer the man was walking normal, doing kicks and felt no pain. He was healed. By the time we left he was shouting joy and praise. Our friend who joined us and translated was super encouraged and when asked if he wanted to accept Christ again into his life, he said YES! ”

As a base, we have teams in the nations and a team in the Spring DTS learning and growing in preparation to go to the nations

Looking Ahead:

  • Winter DTS returns mid-June
  • Spring DTS leaves for outreach beginning of July
  • Reformation Generation beginning July 1st
  • This summer our base will be camp counselors for a teens camp within the churches called Unashamed

Prayer points for this month:

  • Lord’s Guidance for Spring DTS
  • Provision for teams on outreach
  • Greater base unity
  • Students for upcoming schools
  • Release of finances

Having A Prayer Based Mindset

This quarter were so excited to have our prayer room up and running, with a different approach in our strategy. Right now, we have a smaller number of staff and students than usual, but we’re not allowing those odds to come against us in our times of prayer corporately and individually. We feel challenged to pray weekly into worldwide persecution of Christians and finances specially for our base. We also will be incorporating a strong focus on worship in our prayer room to remember all that God has done, is doing, and will do. This perspective reminds us of His character, and encourages us to see things unfold the way He wants! and He wants to see heaven come to earth.

If we’re people that are truly about seeing heaven come to earth, we are in desperate need of a perspective beyond ourselves. We’re in need of an expectant and hope-filled perspective that will go against the grain of our world’s eyes. A perspective that will “look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen” (2 Corinthians 4:18a). A perspective that will have faith to see redemption in all things, victory in the face of great opposition, and persevere when our flesh is itching to give up.

Paul reminds us that God has “raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:6) and has given us an all access pass to “draw near to the throne of grace” (Hebrews 4:16). This means, God has allowed us, or yet, invited us to sit with Him in close fellowship and ask Him for His perspective on different tragedies in the world, family troubles or trials, or even that one friend that we’re needing an extra dose of patience for. Not only that, but He is wanting us to “set [our] minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth” (Colossians 3:2). He is longing to freely hand us His perspective and wants us to partner with Him in having His will unfold for our lives and bringing heaven to earth.

As simple put by Jim Stier, an international Youth With a Mission speaker, “if we want to see heaven come to earth, we have to be willing to spend time in heaven while we are still here on earth.”
