Greetings from the Northeast! Wow. The dream is happening and happening fast. The GoRevival School of Himalayan missions is moving in power and love. It is awesome what Jesus is doing in and through our trainees.
We’ve had class for 4 hours in the morning and wonderful outreaches throughout the afternoon. We base these on the words Jesus spoke in Matthew 25:35 – “For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.” We divide the students into groups. One group goes into the prison. Another to the hospitals. Another into the streets. Prisoners are weeping as they hear the gospel. Some cry out to Jesus in a loud voice. While others fall on their knees in broken surrender.
Sick are being healed and discharged early from the hospital. They are overwhelmed with gratitude to God that He sent someone to pray for them. Students have taken off their shoes and given them to the poor who have none in the streets. Others have spent their last few rupees to buy bread for a hungry person. Today, as we go out, we will do more for the poor. Soul Harvest will put more rupees into the hands of these young trainees and believe Jesus to multiply the bread they buy for the hungry. Oh how I love this!
In two days, we will travel to another district for outreaches. There we will hold the GoRevival crusade. The mission is to awaken the local churches. To call the lost home to Jesus. Heal the sick and set captives free. Our students will be in the streets, shops, and markets each morning and afternoon. They are practicing Mathew 25:35-36, demonstrating the love of Jesus, praying for the sick, and inviting everyone to the nightly crusade.
We will then return to the school for a final round of training and then the graduation. After graduation, we are sending a team of eleven graduates into a neighboring country for their first missions endeavor. The Himalayan nations are white unto harvest.
Please we need your help, as there have been numerous unexpected needs and unforeseen costs. We are training, feeding, and equipping a small spiritual battalion. They are like special forces, moving around and taking spiritual territory for Jesus.
Thanks so much for your loving support in prayer and generosity. Your giving is thrusting laborers full of the love of Jesus into His harvest field here. My heart is completely overwhelmed by what the Lord is doing.
Much love and a big hug from the other side of the planet,
Dear Friends & Family, Julie and I hope this letter finds you full of joy. It’s a beautiful morning here in Colombia. We wish that we could bottle it up and send you some. Wow. What is going on with the ministry, and us can be best summed up in the words of Willie Nelson, “On […]
Dear Friends & Family, Julie and I wish you a tremendously blessed and joy filled new year! After a more than Merry Christmas with family, we are flying back to Colombia New Years Day. Like the great apostle Paul, I want to exclaim, “But thanks beto God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ”!Together […]
Dear Friends & Family, Wow! I am really excited to write you this morning. Julie and I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. Ours was the best ever. We had such a fun time with all our kids, grandkids, and extended family on both sides. I am pumped about the mission to Manipur India this […]
Dear Friends & Family, Lazarus had been dead four days. His sisters received a promise from Jesus. I believe He had told them, sometime before their brother got sick and died, that if they would “only believe” they “would see the glory of God”. Maybe He told this to Mary the day she worshipped at […]
Dear Friends & Family, Julie and I hope this letter finds you well. We have exciting revival news to share. Today I am writing while flying back from India through Seattle to meet Julie at Seth’s.

Dear Friends & Family, Julie and I hope your summer has been a fun one? I want to thank you for praying for us and our team in Colombia. God has answered and things have improved on all fronts in less than a month’s time. Psalm 105:4 is a simple solution to many […]
Dear Friends & Family, The Apostle Paul in describing his mission work said: “We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed”. Sometimes this missions stuff gets a little intense. But when the enemy comes in like a flood, […]
Dear Friends & Family, Julie and I send you our love from Rionegro. Finally the rainy season is ending here in Colombia and “Here comes the sun da da da da”! I never imagined there could be so many shades of green. This inspires me to think of the infinite shades of God’s love and […]
