Trust this writing finds you well and prospering, “even as your soul prospers!” What a whirlwind this past month has been. Lots of travel, lots of new relationships, and lots of lives changed. We love what we get to do—here are a few highlights!
Sunday, May 13th—Fellowship Church of Ft Bend Rosenberg TX—what an amazing blessing it was to be with Ps Joe and Nancy Cruse on Mother’s Day weekend. The church was packed and from the very first note of very first song, God’s presence was strong. Many came forward for prayer and for recommitment. And how cool is it—we are returning for a week of revival meetings beginning Sunday, June 17-20th—Father’s Day. Nightly meetings are @ 7pm. If you are in the Houston area, come and join us. It’s gonna be powerful!
Sunday am May 20th—very honored to be at Covenant Christian Center in Lutz, FL with dear friends, Ps Kevin and Gaile Howell. Always power packed and charged with worship and the Word of God when we get together.
Sunday pm May 20th—what a privilege to join New Way Christian Fellowship in Palm Coast, FL (Ps Rich and Kim Summerlin) as they honored Dr. Norvel Hayes on his 85th birthday. What a general in the faith! We were blessed to be a part of this epic night.
Wed-Thursday May 23-24th—met new friends Ps Tim and Trish Finlayson and the wonderful folks at Brevard Worship Center in Malabar, FL—a church that loves to worship and loves the power of God. We saw many healed and set free in two nights. Can’t wait to return!
Fri-Sun May 25-27th—met new friends Ps John and Judy Wilcox and their wonderful church, Faith Alive in Okeechobie, FL. What a delightful time as we worked with their praise team and ministered with them during our time there. Right in the middle of worship, a lady in a wheelchair stood up, and walked forward (with Pastor John’s help) to the front of the altar! Lord, what you have begun, you will complete. Praise the Lord forever!!
Sat-Sun June 2-3rd—reconnecting with an old friend and amazing worship leader, Chach Reyes, and meeting new friends, Pastors Isaias and Joyce Sanchez @ Lord of the Harvest Church in Corpus Christi TX. WOW—A POWERFUL CHURCH WITH A PASSION FOR WORSHIP AND PRAYER LIKE YOU SELDOM SEE! Sunday night service was……off the charts and words can’t really describe. It was one of those, “just had to be there services!” Many brought prayer cloths and Ps Joe, Ps Isaias, and Ps Joyce anointed them with oil. So many were so touched they couldn’t hardly make it back to their seats! I can’t wait to hear the reports from this service! TO GOD BE THE GLORY GREAT THINGS HE HAS DONE!
As you can see, we are very busy but very blessed. Friends, as always, we covet your prayers. Please pray for—
1. Wisdom—we are laying out plans for the future ministry opportunities for WMI and for the worship school, Institute for the Arts. We are working right now, to get the school online, which is a tedious process. We are trusting the Lord to lead us. The mandate to train and impart is stronger now than ever before and the need is great.
2. Building space—our home church, pastored by Jody and Vanessa Cruse—Compassion Church is in commercial office space but we are busting at the seams and need adequate auditorium and children’s space. A door has opened for some space very close to where we are. Please pray for favor and for finances for the church to be able to do the buildout and relocate by the fall.
3. Finances—as always, the ministry can always use an infusion of finances. The gospel is free, but the cost to get it out there is always a challenge. We are wanting to update our product/resources with new recordings and teachings but the cost to produce is a challenge. If you want to be a part financially, you may go to WMIglobal.org, click the icon that says, “CONTRIBUTIONS” and give by way of our secure online giving feature. We thank you in advance for your generosity and pray 100 fold blessing on your gifts!
4. Vehicle—White Excursion Update—the old white ‘99 Excursion is running good with 481,000 miles but we are believing the Lord for something newer. Right now, we are looking into a bus or motorhome, something that will make the travel easier and more cost effective than staying in hotels. Pray with us as we seek the Lord on what He has for us! It’s gonna be great cause we’ve been faithful with what He has already provided.
Friends, this is our prayer for you today! Ephesians 3:19-21 says, “to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen”.
