This past year has been perhaps one of the most tumultuous in the history of the world. Romans 8:19 tells us all creation travails for God’s children to be made manifest. While many are running to and fro seeking answers, it is my solemn prayer that what the prophet Isaiah spoke will be true of you: “For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth and gross darkness on the people; but the LORD will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.” (Isaiah 60:1, 2)
Though I spent much of 2011 at the Lord’s feet earnestly seeking His direction for the ministry, He did send me to Israel in April. On so many levels, this was an amazing miracle! While it was mostly an intercessory mission trip, I also received personal ministry from the Lord.
Surprisingly, it was in Jerusalem that the Holy Spirit began to open up my eyes to see The Father’s Love Int’l traveling to both Western and Eastern Europe to share His love with the people there. God is redigging the wells of inheritance, and though I have no way of knowing the fullness of it, I believe the Lord is waiting for us to claim the nations in His name. (see Psalm 2:8)
Europe, by-in-large, has forgotten her roots; however, God holds her rich heritage in His hands and has it in safe keeping for her awakening. As I wait upon the Lord to open the doors for this trip, anticipation is growing. I believe in every place visited many will dramatically have restored to them a measure of the Father’s love, hope and joy. Missionaries have plowed this spiritually hardened ground for years without seeing much fruit; however, I believe the Lord is about to repair the breach! This breakthrough will involve spiritual, emotional and physical healing; and whatever my part is in this restoration, I want to be sure and do the Lord’s will. He is asking, “Who will go?” I am answering, “Send me!”
Please pray and ask the Lord how you can help support this trip. Clearly for this mission trip to be successful, I will need prayer partners and those who will stand with me with financial contributions. I believe as we sow into what the Lord’s heart is for Europe, we will see an awakening here in the United States. As we step out in faith together, the Lord will bring everything into focus in its perfect time. He has been faithful to connect me with the needed contacts for every other mission trip He’s sent me on, as well as providing for all needs. I completely trust that He will again.
