Supernatural Evangelism Equipping
Dear Friends and Family,
Wow! Summer is off to a great start. Here in Colombia we just finished our 3rd week of FIRESTARTERS. This is a twelve-week supernatural evangelism training and activation program. Everyone is so excited. In John 14:12, Jesus says to you and I that the works He did, we will do, and even greater works. FIRESTARTERS has been a tool to help our members step into this. We start with testimonies from members of our community. Last week Agustin shared that he prayed for a person at a copy shop and Jesus healed their paralyzed hand. Awesome! Then we have an activation session where participants get up from their table and give a word of knowledge or a prophecy etc. Then one of our table leaders teaches the message. Then we have activation exercises at the tables which are followed by table topic discussions. Finally there is the ignition, which is an exhortation and time of impartation. It is amazing. We are seeing people connecting with God like never before. Others are overcoming their timidity and are gaining confidence to minister during the week. It’s small steps that lead people to the place where they can “cross the chicken line”, take a risk to see Jesus heal someone, or bring somebody into an encounter with Him and share the Gospel. We love this. I have always believed that my role is to train, equip, and activate the body to do the supernatural works of Jesus. Ephesians 4 teaches us that the role of the five-fold ministry is to train and equip the believers for ministry.
In other news, we met last week with the president of the skateboard club to begin working on a large evangelistic event at the skateboard park. We are looking forward to reaching the skateboarders and BMX bikers for Jesus with this event. Please pray for us to have favor for the permits etc. Also Seth, Michelle, and Harper go to Bogota for their 2 year missionary visas next week. Please agree with us for favor with Immigration. Thank you for being so generous to help us train up believers and reach the lost for JC. Your prayers for us are prevailing and your seed is bearing fruit!
