Phenix City, AL August 2009 -Miracles, Signs & Wonders
Dear Friends and Partners, The month of August has been one of excitement and advancement in the Kingdom of God. It is or greatest joy to see the sons and daughters of God rise to a new level in the Spirit, when they receive an impartation of who they are in Christ and the power that works within them. We fully believe that in this very hour God is raising up an army for the Kingdom. They are those of whom so many Prophets have spoken of in the past. "Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labors are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labors into the harvest" Matt 9:37-38.
Friends and Partners we so appreciate your prayers and support of this ministry. Without you it would be impossible to reach the world the way that we have been. It is our mandate to raise up a generation that moves in the power and demonstration of the Spirit at a time when men have set up their own kingdoms, forsaking the truth of God's Word. Our Bible states, "And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love" Eph. 4:11-16. The five fold ministry gifts are sent by God to advance the body and to raise them up to do the work of the ministry. What ever you have been called to; whether it is to be a business man, home maker, or ministry gift we count it a privilege that God has brought us together to see your dreams come to pass. Everyone of you are called to the supernatural life. We are on this journey together so again we thank you for your support and love.
The meetings in Phenix City, Alabama this month were truly wonderful. We made several new friends and know that the Lord is doing something mighty in this region and city. This was a three day event hosted by a local church in the city. The Friday night gathering was marked by several people being healed and delivered with a strong word on the Spirit of Resurrection. Saturday was a great outreach in the park, many that had never felt the hand of God were struck to the ground under the anointing of the Spirit. Backs, lung conditions, legs and ankles were healed by the power of the Holy Spirit. There was great joy among our team upon returning to the hotel as we told of the wonderful things that took place. We know that many lives will never be the same. Sunday morning was an intense supernatural time of impartation and acceleration for many in attendance. Jesse Shamp shared his testimony in the 8:30 am service along with a powerful message by Mike Shamp on getting out of your boat or circumstance. Lives were impacted and minds were set free by the Word and Spirit of God.
We knew that the Lord would move in the fullness of the Spirit at the 11:00 am service. As the Word went forth spirits began to cry out, as we called for healing people began to come foreword and receive. Necks, backs, shoulders, arthritis, hip trouble were all healed by the power of God. We called for people that were ready to move in the power of God and the alter was filled with hungry hearts ready to receive a new level of God on their life. People were slain by the power of God and received an impartation for miracles and healing. Testimonies of what has taken place through the many lives that were there have come in through emails. We know that what God has started he will finish. We are looking forward to returning next year for more wonderful meetings.
