Issue 3 Greeting & News

Dear Friends and Family, Greetings in that great and wonderful name of Jesus Christ! We are blessed to come to you giving a report of the ministry of September through December... it has been awesome!

"And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS." (Luke 1: 26-31)

Doris and I count it an honor to go and be a vessel in ministering. We were gone 78 days to New Mexico, Arizona, and Texas, seeing people receive salvation and encouragement. There were 41 that gave their hearts to the Lord and many were healed.

A man was healed of severe knee pain that he had for years. Another lady testified of complete eyesight being restored and no longer needs glasses. Another lady was healed of esophagus problems. A man testified of being healed of severe shoulder pain. He had been taking Tylenol day and night, but he was instantly healed! Many testified of their healings.

In most of the revival services, the attendance grew every night. We were given testimonies of how they were encouraged and drawn closer to the Lord, and more of a desire for the things of God... also how their spiritual eyes were opened and their hearts yearning for his righteousness... seeing the need to be involved in the church, giving more of themselves to the Lord.

One of the blessings was to see a couple who had been together for 14 years... after the revival at their daughter's 1261 birthday party, he proposed to her and asked her to marry him. He put an engagement ring on her finger. The following Saturday, Pastor Ben Sam performed the wedding. The pastor had been talking to him about needing to do the right thing in order for him to be involved in playing music in church and being an example. Now they are a family that God joined together. The mother and daughter were so excited because God answered their prayers.
We were blessed to have Pastor Joshua and Sabrina Fayne of Christian Assembly in Nicholasville, KY and some of their members to be in meetings with us. Mark Kirby, Torrence and Billie Fain, and Neal Sears were all with us at Ojo Encino, NM with Pastors Ben and Pauline Sam... then also in
Crownpoint, NM with Pastor Gilbert and Rosita Todachine for a couple of days.

The people really enjoyed them being there with the shofar horn and their ministry. It was a blessing to all. The young people were curious and wanted to blow the shofar. It was not as easy as they thought, but they learned fast. Thank you all for coming and being a blessing! Also thank you to Daryl and Rosie Young who joined with us on a Sunday at Cornfield, AZ with Pastor Joyce Muench.

It was a blessing to work with all the Native Pastors and their congregations. Thank you for allowing us to minister in your churches.
Then on the way home we stopped in Texas for the Hispanic ministry with Pastor Jose and Norma Sorto at Templo Internacional Revive Center in Carrolton, TX... Pastor Elizabeth, Iglesia Cristiana El Remenente, Carrolton, TX... Pastor Jose and Arely Piaz, Pastor Sofia Piaz, Mission Templo Bethel, Denton, TX.

We were blessed to have Esmerelda Guzmolina as our interpreter. She is anointed for this ministry. The ministry was awesome with these pastors!

I want to share how when we were traveling by car to the meeting in Shiprock, NM, I got sun blinded and couldn't see where I was going. I lost control and hit a wall where they were doing construction. The Lord enabled me to gain control and get back in the lane. No other cars were involved. It did some damage to the Pontiac Vibe. We had to replace ball joints, have it aligned, and we are going to need some body work done to the fender. Doris said it felt like we were in a bubble protected.

We so appreciate all of you that continue to stand with us in prayer, love, and your faithful support to enable us to go and minister the Word... bringing people hope, healing, and encouragement to so many in need... thank you!

We pray for you and your family to be encouraged during the Christmas season. Many have lost loved ones and gone through some trying times. May the joy of his love fill and comfort you.

Doris & I, Tabitha, Mickey, Carissa, Elis, & Alec all pray that you will be blessed with all of His blessings during the season, and that His love will warm your hearts. Cherish the memories and make new ones. Joy to the World the Lord is come! Blessing and Love... Merry Christmas and the best of 2019!
