We arrived in Gypsum Colorado on 7 June, in the morning hours, after nearly 48 hours of travelling, feeling a mixture of exhaustion and excitement. It is lovely to be united with our spiritual family in this part of the world once again.
We spent most of the first day recuperating and acclimatising ourselves to the altitude. Gypsum is in a beautiful area located up in the Rockies mountain range of Colorado. We spent much of the day in fasting and prayer, waiting on the Lord for clarity and direction concerning what He wanted us to accomplish on this trip. On Wednesday evening, many of the families that make up the home church came around to spend some time with us.
Saturday afternoon was our first combined ministry time with the group, and I shared on the value and importance of Godly relationships. We had a wonderful time together, and it was nice having Michael with me to lead us in some worship together before the ministry of the Word.
Sunday morning we held a service at our usual time, with others logging in from Florida, Germany, Zimbabwe and South Africa. Again Michael led us in a time of praise and worship before I ministered on the subject of alignment within the body of Christ. It was a powerful and impactful time of ministry. The message was well received and it is wonderful to see how God is establishing strategic relationships within the group.
As this is still a young church, I was so blessed in being able to speak prophetically over their lives as the Lord began to reveal to me the roles which He has gifted certain members within the church to play. Please keep the members of the house church in your prayers as each person within the body finds their place in what God is doing amongst them.
The week ahead has been filled up with meetings. I am trying to spend as much quality one-on-one time with each of the couples in order to connect on a deeper level and maximise the time I have over here. I would sincerely value your prayer support over the next few days for the Lord to give me wisdom and discernment in encouraging and giving direction to His flock.
On Friday evening and Saturday afternoon, Michael will be running a workshop with the young adults entitled ‘Undistracted Devotion.’ We are believing for a powerful and impactful time as the word of God is shared. Please pray that God would touch and inspire the hearts of these young adults to commit themselves to lives of undistracted devotion towards our Lord Jesus Christ.
We send our love to all of our family back home, along with the warm regards of all those here with us in Gypsum. We continue to pray for God’s Spirit to minister life and encouragement to your hearts in our absence, trusting wholeheartedly in his loving benevolence and care.
Thank you for your continued prayer support towards us. I look forward to giving you more positive feedback soon.
God bless you,
