    Hi from Spain and Europe! How are you? We are so grateful for your prayers and support. We need each other to accomplish all that the Lord has for us. 
    God has caused us to meet some very interesting people in remarkable ways in the last few months. There are many great testimonies to share. I have selected these three because they are especially unique and to keep the newsletter a reasonable size. They remind me somewhat of Acts 8:26-29:
    26 Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, “Rise and go toward the south to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” This is a desert place. 27 And he rose and went. And there was an Ethiopian, a eunuch, a court official of Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, who was in charge of all her treasure. He had come to Jerusalem to worship 28 and was returning, seated in his chariot, and he was reading the prophet Isaiah. 29 And the Spirit said to Philip, “Go over and join this chariot.”

    Muslim Woman Asks us to Plant a Church?

    Mons, Belgium: My travel companion and I were walking to the market, speaking English. A woman walking in front of us kept looking back at us. I made a joke about Americans, and we began to speak. She was a Muslim woman from Algeria, but told me not to worry because she is open minded. Over the course of the conversation, she told us that she works with migrants and refugees and that Belgium has a real problem with division in the society. In her trips to the USA, she had seen how the church has a unifying influence in America. She wants to keep in touch with us because she is interested in seeing that type of church planted in Belgium! How about that? Praise God! [October 2022]

    This Sherman tank is on display in Mons, Belgium. It helped liberate the city from Nazi Germany. We met the above woman across the street from this tank.

    God Connects… Twice!

    Bristol, England: As I was arriving in the city by train, I began to enter my hotel address in google maps so that I could walk there. The Holy Ghost arrested me. After a little prayer, I perceived that he wanted me to take a cab. My cab driver was a devout Muslim from Somalia. I tried to witness to him and offered him a Brother Hagin book, but he declined. We talked about his family, I gave him a nice tip, and we left on good terms.
    Two days later, I planned on taking a bus to the airport. It rained hard, and I decided to take a cab. I had the same driver! We were both so surprised. I asked him if that was typical, and he told me it was nearly impossible with more than 300 taxis in Bristol. We chatted about his wife and four kids. I finally told him that I believed that God had brought us together since I had taken his cab twice. I asked him if I could pray for him, and he requested that I pray for health and long life for him. I was able to pray Psalm 91:16 over him in the name of Jesus as God’s presence filled his cab. He happily thanked me and told me that he would never forget our time together. [November 2022]

    I Will Show You Unique Ways to Reach People.

    Ballina, Ireland: The evening before, during prayer, we sensed that there was a person in this town that is called of God and needs our help. We also picked up that the Lord would show us a way to connect with them that is abnormal to us, but that would work for them. We needed to be open to that.
    In the morning, we headed for the streets in search of this person that the Lord had dealt with us about. We had a few good conversations but weren’t sure if we had found our assignment. When we went to lunch, we were powerfully drawn to the woman behind the cash register. We spoke to her as much as appropriate and then sat down to eat. Later she came by our table, and we spoke some more. We learned that she was from Poland and was returning for a visit the following morning. We encouraged her that the Lord has a good plan for her. Then she had to get back to work.
    We left the restaurant and walked 5-10 minutes when I looked down and noticed a small silver coin on the ground. I picked it up, and to my surprise, it was a Polish coin (in Ireland, all the way on the other side of Europe)! Now I know that God speaks to us through His Word. I believe we are all to be led by the Holy Spirit. But I turned to my travel companion and said, “You know, if we were to bring this coin back to that woman, because of her spiritual upbringing, she would believe it was a sign and be 100 times more open to anything that we shared with her.” After some discussion and having received instruction in prayer the night before to be open to unique ways to connect with people, we decided to return to her.
    We met her outside of the restaurant because she was running an errand. As soon as she saw the coin, she exclaimed, “It’s a sign!” Her heart was wide open. We shared the Word with her, prayed with her, and gave her a good Christian book. She was so happy. As we left, she said, “When you return, I will be right here at this restaurant,” implying that she wanted to make sure we stop and see her again. In ten years of this work, I have never had anyone nearly as open and excited about meeting us and seeing us again after our first interaction. Praise the Lord! [November 2022]

    Thank you again for your prayers and partnership. We believe that God is putting together all of our prayers, giving, and steps of obedience to ultimately provide good, stable, Word & Spirit ministry all over the world. The Gospel must be preached in all nations. This revival must come to full fruition. The harvest must be gathered in. The Lord must return! By His grace we will be fully faithful in our generation. Many blessings to you and yours!

    Thank you so much for your faithful prayers and financial support for this ministry. We so appreciate your partnership!

    Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! – Psalms 107:8
    It is right and fitting to praise the Lord! He has been so good to us. He is faithful and true to His Word. God had freed us from all sin and from hell itself. He has healed our bodies, provided our financial needs, promised us wisdom and favor. He has put His love, joy and peace in our hearts. Every problem or negative situation that comes our way has already been dealt with by our God. When we remember this, we never have a reason to do anything but rejoice and praise our loving Heavenly Father. 

    I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. – Psalms 34:1
    In Psalms 34:1, we are instructed to have God’s praises continually in our mouth. Let’s praise Him in the morning, at noontime, and in the evening. And our praises should be specific. “Thank you for protection. Praise you for giving me life, health, breath, strength. Thank you that I am completely free from sin. Thank you for providing my every need. Thank you for wisdom and grace for today’s decisions.” As will fill our mouths, homes and lives with God’s praise, the supernatural power of God enters and brings help and increase in everything. We are truly the most blessed of people! Praise the Lord!

    Here are some pictures of our church baptism at the end of August. It was a great time in the Lord!

    Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. – Joel 3:14
    Doesn’t it seem like things in the world are changing a lot right now? Even among Christians, people are making important, life-changing decisions. As always, God is moving His children into position naturally and spiritually to be able to fulfill all that He has for us. During this season, there is an apparent urgency for us to be in our God-ordained place. 

    And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God. – Romans 12:2
    This Bible verse tells us that God has a perfect will for us. Each one of us can walk right in the center of the life that God desires. Just like cooking or playing a sport, walking in God’s will requires training and practice to be good at it. But what a precious skill to have! Again, Romans 12:2 indicates that we need to think in agreement with God’s Word (have our minds renewed) in order to see and walk in God’s plan for us. God’s Word is His will. When we agree and cooperate with what His Word says, we train ourselves to agree with the Holy Spirit when He speaks to us about things that aren’t specifically mentioned in God’s Word. As we meditate, or think deeply into God’s Word throughout our day, we automatically move closer to God’s perfect will for us. 
    Once we have this renewed mind, a mind full of and cooperating with the Word of God, we can effectively ask God honestly and openly if we are in the center of His will and, if not, what steps we should take to get there. Many times, seemingly small adjustments in actions and attitudes will yield amazing results. It is also possible that God will deal with us to make larger changes. In this case, we keep our hearts open and humble before the Lord, telling Him that we are willing to do anything in His service. We move slowly and peacefully relying on the Word of God, times of prayer and praise before the Lord, and our Pastors and church services in order to transition accurately and skillfully into all that the Lord desires for us. Times of change and uncertainty can be hard on our emotions. By keeping our eyes on the Lord and walking in peace and love, we will end up in the best life that the Lord has for us. What a wonderful skill, to know how to follow God through life! What a wonderful life in the will and manifest presence of God! Accept no alternatives.

    Hi from Spain. How is your summer?

    We are doing very well. Thank you so much for your faithful prayers and giving. The Lord is blessing the ministry and bringing increase. He is so good!

    The top pictures are from the church picnic. Bottom pictures are a youth meeting and the church nursery. 

    As I have been seeking the Lord lately, it seems that He is emphasizing the importance of our Life of God International Prayer Team. There are things that He would like our ministry to move into, but we need power made available to be able to accomplish this. Look at what the scriptures say:

    The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]. James 5:16b [AMPC]

    For I am well assured and indeed know that through your prayers and a bountiful supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ (the Messiah) this will turn out for my preservation (for the spiritual health and welfare of my own soul) and avail toward the saving work of the Gospel. Philippians 1:19 [AMPC]

    Thank you to those who have already joined the prayer team. Perhaps you would like to as well. Simply reply to this e-mail and we will send you periodic special updates and prayer requests. It would be great to have you join us in regular prayer for this work in Europe!

    We had our first conference in the Burgos church this June! Pastors Jeff and Renée Mitchener from Family Church in Mayville, NY and their daughter Ezra joined us for dynamic ministry. It was a great blessing to us and brought increase and correction to the church. Below are pictures from the conference and their visit.

    God is moving in the earth! We won’t be distracted by difficulties or extreme busyness. We will focus on the Lord and His Word and continually ask Him to lead us into His highest will. Let’s walk on together in all that He has planned.

    Above are pictures from recent mission trips. The top picture is Pastor Jeff with a Christian brother in Nykoping, Sweden. The middle two pictures are from artic Finland. The bottom two pictures are from Belfast, Northern Ireland in April. 

    On these trips, we have been seeing more opportunities to share the gospel and hand out Christian books. People are increasingly open and receptive. And we return to these cities to continue and finish what the Lord has started. Europe will be won!



    We love to hear from partners, friends, and anyone interested in reaching people with Christ’s love.
