Introduction Truly, I was excited beyond comprehension. Before the flight, I asked Miss Dixie if she thought it would be okay if brought some Prophetic Worship Glory Rings to give away along with the first Holy Anointing Oil I ever made and an introductory copy of my first booklet, Have Glory Ring will Travel! which was 50 pages at the time. She encouraged me to do so. Not being an experienced-traveler, I put 35 copies of Have Glory Ring will Travel! booklet and 13 Prophetic Worship Glory Rings in my daughter’s bright purple college duffel bag.
These were the days before September 11, 2001, and all the extra fees and weight limitations for more than one suitcase and tight airport security. The days were kinder in that season…one could actually carry a water bottle on a flight. At the time, the duffel bag was all I had available, in retrospect it is a truly hilarious thought. Yes, I was the only one among 3000 professional business suits with a bright purple duffel bag and I was the only one worshiping with Prophetic Worship Glory Ring. Bob and Dixie Cole called and invited me to attend the Apostolic Team Summit Conference in Colorado Springs, Colorado. This was my first time to be invited to an out of state conference and have someone take care of the traveling expenses including purchasing a suitcase. They set the bar very high for traveling in ministry and I soon learned Miss Dixie’s charismatic and loving gift of hospitality would never be exceeded which has remained true in 20 years of ministry. I was intrigued by their ease in accommodating others because it seemed so natural to them. One could tell they truly just loved it. It was lovely not to be treated as though I was an inconvenience. In my small world of Christianity in Oregon … I really did not know Christians treated people like this. These five days changed my life for eternity and helped me see the LORD’s purpose in HIS call upon my life.
Signs along the way: Penny at airport - Angie, Eagle White Truck – Academy Blvd, M & M Reality, Penny in Van – Bob and Dixie’s. A penny is symbolic of one being sent by the Lord: One Sent (One Cent).
April 7, 1999, Wednesday ~ Bob and Dixie graciously picked me up at the airport and were not at all concerned about the very large duffel bag along with the large Samsonite luggage they purchased for me so that I could make the journey. Amazingly my Worship Sword was not of any concern as a carry-on that I had placed in a cardboard box which must have been a miracle.
Their generosity truly staggered me. We went to the World Prayer Tower and Life Center to see where the conference would be held. The World Prayer Center and New Life Church are housed on the same property adjacent to each other. I had heard about the World Prayer Tower and truly wanted to see it first. They were kind and accommodated my wishes. The spiritual atmosphere at the World Prayer Tower was sacred and holy. My heart was filled with gratitude at being given the opportunity to pray in this place.
I met Linda from California in the Prayer Center and shared with her that I had a Prophetic Worship Glory Ring for the State of California and Holy Anointing Oil and she promised to find me tomorrow when the conference officially began…and she did. Linda was part of a Worship Dance Team and Intercessory Prayer Group at her home church in California. It was the first Prophetic Worship Glory Ring to give away at the conference even before the conference began. I felt like GOD was going before me and making the path clear for HIS Worship Songs in Color to be released.
Because this event was before I had a personal computer or laptop, I have found a few scattered handwritten notes from my journal. The photos are bits and pieces as well providing treasured snippets of the journey.
Bob and Dixie were volunteers for the conference and provided me with a volunteer badge as well. My gratefulness was exceeding.
April 8, 1999, Thursday ~ This conference is where I received my first Tallit, a prayer shawl from Israel, “Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem” which was a life changing gift. It was also my first time to see a Shofar and hear one sounded. Miss Dixie is a Shofar Sounder and this was also life changing as I knew someday GOD would bring me a Shofar which HE did when I journeyed to Israel in 2008.
When I first entered the conference center, New Life Church in Colorado Springs, I sensed the Holy Spirit directing me to the front right corner in the back which was away from the stage, the cameras and all the important people sitting in the front rows. I came to worship and I came to learn. This is what really mattered to me.
During the lunch break, I had the joy of spending a bit of time with Julie Whitney and her daughter, Sarah. Julie is one of our HGRM intercessors and I am delighted and grateful for this brief interlude. The first evening at the conference, I unknowingly stood about four chairs away from a man from China. I was sitting alone because Miss Dixie and Bob were volunteering somewhere in the conference usually at the book, gift, and/or Shofar table. Miss Dixie has one of those delightful personalities that whether you needed something or not, you would purchase it from Miss Dixie simply because of her charismatic, enthusiastic and delightful personality - contagious with joy.
Last year, in the summer of 1998, when the LORD awakened me about praying for China, I asked the LORD, “How do I pray for China?” HE said, “It is MY China!” And then HE gave me scriptures to pray over China besides creating a Prophetic Worship Glory Ring for China in 1998, one of our first Nations’ Glory Rings.
The first night of the conference, the facilitator asked us to take the hand of the person next to us and pray for them. So, I walked past our row of 4 empty chairs to the man at the end. It was delightful that GOD orchestrated me to sit near a person from China, one of two Nations Prophetic Worship Glory Rings that I had made. The other was in Ethiopia, Africa. Out of 200 plus nations in the world, clearly GOD was paying attention to the details. I felt great confidence in joining hands with Abel Hsu and praying for China. After taking his hand, I shared with him that I had been praying for China. And he placed his hand over his heart and said, “My China.” I knew GOD was confirming to me that I was in the right place, at the right time, with the right person for HIS Glory. Abel shared that he is part of an intercessory team that is planning to take China for Jesus in the next 10 years. They are mobilizing an army of intercessors to sweep China. Glory to GOD!
April 9, 1999, Friday ~ In the morning, I met Elaine Fletemeyer for a time of prayer. She introduced me to a couple, Ted and Uli, as we were walking in the hallway. Uli is from Germany and has been in the States for 18 years…and when I said to her that I had made a Prophetic Worship Glory Ring for Germany she collapsed to the floor and began wailing in intercession for Germany. So, I hurried back to the auditorium to retrieve the Germany Prophetic Worship Glory Ring, a bottle of Holy Anointing Oil, the Have Glory Ring will Travel! booklet and returned to the Prayer Room. Uli is a worship dancer and returns to Germany biyearly. An amazing divine appointment.
In the afternoon, the LORD spoke clearly to me to go find Elaine now, so I did as I thought it was perhaps because of the earlier Germany divine appointment that we did not have time to pray. So, I found her, and we went upstairs to a room to pray. I said, “I have this urgency in my spirit to get the Korea Prophetic Worship Glory Ring to Che’ Ahn” (Korean Pastor over 4000 churches). Immediately her phone rang. It was Che’ Ahn’s assistant that Elaine had met less than 15 minutes earlier. Elaine was the volunteer coordinator for the event that made the arrangements for guest speakers to be shuttled to and from the airport. Literally, I ran back into the sanctuary/auditorium, retrieved the Korean Prophetic Worship Glory Ring, Holy Anointing Oil and Booklet and met Elaine in the foyer. I handed her the Prophetic Worship Glory Ring with booklet and oil and she handed it to Audrey, Che’ Ahn’s assistant as they walked out the door to be escorted to the airport. The timing of GOD is always of essence.
Following this divine appointment, during the break, the woman, that I met on earlier at the World Prayer Center, found me to receive the California Prophetic Worship Glory Ring that I promised her. And then a woman from Scotland came inquiring about the Prophetic Worship Glory Rings and received the Scotland Prophetic Worship Glory Ring with booklet and oil as well.
April 10, 1999, Saturday ~ Completely amazed at all the divine appointments that had already occurred I could not begin to envision what GOD had planned for this day.
In the morning, I noticed a man standing behind me with green fabric wrapped around plastic pipe in the form of flags. I wanted to cry but I didn’t. One pastor out of 3000 worshiping in Spirit and Truth, one pastor who took the time to go to a fabric store and a hardware store and create makeshift flags so that I would not be only person in a large conference worshiping with worship instruments, only one pastor who could truly see my heart. At the break, he came over and introduced himself and his wife, Pastor Vern and Cheryl Matheson from Whittier, California. He prayed a blessing over me. As I had already given away the California Prophetic Worship Glory Ring, I took his ministry card and promised him and Cheryl a Glory Ring in the future, which I did send. At the close of the conference, he brought all the green fabric to me and hoped I could use it in the making of Worship Instruments. My life will never be the same. What I learned is that usually it is one out of about 3000 pastors that truly understands accepts, embraces and encourages prophetic intercessory worship. It was a good thing to learn this early in ministry.
During lunch, the Set the Captives Free Prophetic Worship Glory Ring was given away along with His Liberty Under Fire Prophetic Worship Glory Ring. During the break in the afternoon session, someone from India came and received the India Prophetic Worship Glory Ring. During the evening break someone came from Japan to receive the Japan Prophetic Worship Glory Ring along with a book and oil like the others before her. I did not know any of these people before this conference. It was literally one divine appointment after another...like dominoes falling.
On Saturday Evening, at the close when a few of us were mingling near the stage for the last of the Worship. I have two Prophetic Worship Glory Rings left to give away: Australia and Islands of the Sea. I turned around and there is a tall gentleman with the word “AUSTRALIA” printed in large bold letters across his name tag standing directly behind me. I asked the obvious, “Are you from Australia?” He answered, “Yes!” I handed him a bottle of Anointing Oil and said that I had a gift for his nation! When I handed him the bottle of oil he said, “By Jove, you put the Glory of God in a bottle!” I laughed. He walked with me over to the almost empty purple duffel bag. I pulled out the Australia Prophetic Worship Glory Ring. He wanted to know who I knew in Australia. I admitted that I did not know anyone. Then he asked, “Who told you to pray for Australia?” I answered, “God.” Then, he asked about the Prophetic Worship Glory Ring, so I shared with him the prophetic meaning and the word the LORD gave me for Australia. He said it was the same word the LORD gave him three years previous: “This year, July 4, 1999 for the first time in Australia’s history the aborigine tribes and the white folks are getting together to worship Jesus” which was the word that I had written to go with the Prophetic Worship Glory Ring. He said, “Let me go get my mate so we can take a photo.” So, I waited. They came back. Took photos. Then he asked, “What else is in that bag of yours?” I laughed, “Just one more Prophetic Worship Glory Ring for the Island of the Seas.” He laughed and asked, “Can I have two? This August, I am going to a Nine Island Conference this summer including Australia, New Zealand and surrounding islands.” He happily left with a double portion and I left with an empty duffel bag! Glory to GOD!
April 11, 1999, Sunday ~ After worshiping at Bob and Dixie’s home church, we ate lunch at Marconi’s, then over to meet more of their friends where I shared a bit about the Prophetic Worship Glory Rings. I brought 35 of the Have Glory Ring will Travel! booklets with me and finished giving them away this afternoon.
By the time I left Colorado Springs there were 70 more names on the list waiting for Prophetic Worship Glory Rings…some nations, some states, some churches, some individuals. I was beginning to see that in time nations and states would be consuming all my time and that the 3-4 years of making individual Prophetic Worship Glory Rings was God just teaching me how to hear HIS voice clearly and concisely, and to make the Prophetic Worship Instruments according to HIS DESIGN for HIS Glory and HIS earth. I could see HE was very serious about HIS Glory on the earth.

Apostolic Conference Notes are listed below, which I believe is a good indicator of where Christian Leaders were in 1999 and sometimes our history helps us see what we need to do differently. Most of the time the speaker is noted, when I could write fast enough and was not too caught up in the Glory of GOD’s presence.
Ezekiel 1:5 – Symbol of Completeness Ezekiel 37:9; Genesis 13:14; Isaiah 11:12. Psalm 105:19 – Joseph – “Until the time that his word came to pass, the word of the LORD tested him.” Elijah tested Elisha 3 times (2 Kings 2)
Peter Wagner Apostles – A Springboard into the 21st Century. 1900-Pentecostal Movement Holy Spirit & Power Ministry. 1950 – Evangelism. 1960 – Compassion. 1970 – Prayer Movement – Office of Intercessor. 1980 - Prophecy – Office of Prophet. 1990 – Apostolic – Government – Office of Apostle. New Apostolic Reformation – greatest change in the way of doing church. Ephesians 4:11 - Government of Church – Five-fold ministry. 1 Corinthians 12:29 What Apostles have: More authority than any other category of the body of Christ. The amount of authority delegated by the Holy Spirit to individuals. 2 Corinthians 10:8. 1 Corinthians 12:18.
Apostles authority is a Spiritual gift - Set in the body by God
They have an assignment or call (1 Corinthians 12:6)
Apostles have extraordinary character (1 James 3:1) – higher responsibilities, most responsibilities, must have pure character
They have voluntary followers – “How can I help this person be everything they can be everything God wants them to be.”
Apostles add value to others.
Apostles have visions and receive revelation (2 Corinthians 12:1)
Apostles authority is from divine anointing
Apostles have determined sphere of ministry (1 Corinthians 9:2, 2 Corinthians 10:13).
Apostles (1 Corinthians 12:4-6) operate 1. Vertical (me) 2. Horizontal (Example: James of Jerusalem, brother of Jesus – Acts 15:6) 3. Hyphenated (Apostle-Prophet) 4. Marketplace
Timothy and Titus were Apostles
Apostles have limitations and spheres of influence based on territories, education and evangelism.
Apostles need 1. Positive relationships with prophets 2. Personal intercessors 3. Recognition and Affirmation 4. Keep communication channels open. 5. Functional accountability.
Apostles do not need: 1. To become denominational 2. Religious (need to stay charismatic).
Leaders must be appointed by God. If a group appoints a leader, then a group can unappoint a leader.
Matthew 28:18 – Vision of Lion of Judah with a diamond in HIS eye.
I AM is the LION of JUDAH
Salvation for the Nations
Butterfly – new birth – world evangelism
Motivation – Glory of LORD
What pleases GOD?
Priority – JESUS commands it.
Evangelism – JESUS is the only hope!
Only have this life!
Pray for the lost.
Make the great commandment the priority of the great commission.
Ed Silvoso – Am I a lighthouse for prayer?
Apostolic Reformation – A Company of Prophets and Apostles
Jesus fulfilled more prophecy in the last 24 hours of his life than previous 33 years. SWEET KING JESUS!
Fruit of the Spirit is supernatural fruit for this life…eternal gifts.
Abraham had 7 major tests.
Something is happening like day before Noah entering the ark
Entering into final Apostolic movement
Preparation more important than presentation
Jesus birthed the church: 1. 1 Peter 2:10, Acts 3, Hebrews,
1. In season of finalize restoration of 5-fold ministers 2. Equip the Saints 3. Miracles, Signs and Wonders 4. Unify Church (Body of Christ) 5. Activate saints 6. Perfect body of Christ
Peter Wagner 1. For such a time as this 2. Fallow ground 3. Tilled ground 4. The rain will fall 5. Hybrid seed 6. Tree – graft 7. Teaching daughters to dance 8. The best is yet to come! 9. Must obey GOD over the authority of any human 10. Must have the Holy Spirit in your life or you are looking for a tragedy 11. Hebrews 11:39 – Hear the Voice of GOD 12. Operated Under the blessing of the Holy Spirit – miracles! 13. Anger is symbolic of an engine running low on oil – if the engine does not have enough oil – it runs hot. If we do not have enough of the Anointing of Christ, anger will be present in our lives. 14. The only way you can have miracles is to spend time with God! 15. Revelation is from GOD!
Billy Joe Daugherty
The LORD added to the church

What was lost in disobedience (Adam) was gained by obedience in (JESUS)!
Deborah – Barak (Sword of the LORD!
2 Corinthians 12:12
Apostolic People have an apostolic function in specific places with specific people. Apostolic Anointing is a person who is sent out to build, establish, reproduce, and finish. Apostolic Anointing brings breakthrough in others, breaks things off of people, produce eternal fruit. Apostles; Commissioned Ones (Mark 3:14-15, Matthew 10:2-4, Romans 16:7 (Junia – was changed in 1215 from Junio). There were female apostles in the Scriptures and in the First Century. The truth and revelation of the Scriptures that has been hidden has put the church in bondage. (Romans 16:1-2, Acts 9:36)
Prophets hear GOD’s voice. 5 Types of Prophets: 1. Naby -bubble up and announce river in you 2. Hazon – Sharman – Watchman 3. Roele – Vision – Seer Anointing 4. Prophets – speak truth, forth tell, forth speak. 5. Nataph – to preach (drop down from heaven dew). Deuteronomy 33:13 Function of Apostle
Governing in Territories
To send or sending
Relationship between Apostolic and Prophetic (Proverbs 29:18 and Ezekiel 13:5). Intercessors do not release until unction comes from Holy Spirit. Keep intercessory prayer in closet until GOD opens closet door. When the door opens it become prophetic. When relationship is formed between Apostolic and Prophetic – then door is opened to give word.
Direct revelation 2. Immediate revelation (both required for growth)
In order for Paul to see Christ he had to be blinded, struck blind for three days in order to submit to GOD’s call on his life. When he was given his sight, when Jesus came, he was given a new assignment, new call….all past was let go of in order for him to move forward.
Joseph Garlington “GOOD MORNING!” Samuel said three times: HERE I AM! HERE I AM! HERE I AM! A Song: "Mary had a little lamb, then it became a sheep, then it became charismatic and now it never gets any sleep." This is the moment for which my whole life has been waiting. God is trying to get you ready for what HE already has ready for you. Joshua 3:4 We’ve never been this way before. Fundamentalists (no fun, basically dumb, definitely mental). Mark 16 Acts 1:1-3 Jesus appeared to Paul – HE is the same today, etc. First HE DOES YOU, then HE tells you what HE did. We believe the Bible – the author is still alive of the oldest book. Hebrews 1 Remember JESUS washed Peter’s feet.
Chuck Peirce It has been a long time coming, but it is here! Set boundaries, set Apostolic order.
Either you are moving forward or backwards
Either you are moving with God or without God
No standing still
Either you can be a fool for Jesus or a fool for someone else.

The Apostle is the performed of signs and wonders
David established the Apostolic Church
We are sent by God
God brings me out of impossible situations
We are Apostles only by the grace of God
Spirit of Resurrection (sender and sent one=one) When God sends me, HE and ME=ONE
Apostle represents lifestyle of JESUS without exception
The Apostle is so connected to JESUS that no matter what satan cannot kill them
The Apostle walks in apostolic power
The Apostle walks in resurrection power
The Apostle lives by a different strength

Everything an Apostle touches comes alive
Crowned with HIS GLORY! Never dominate one another – JESUS IS ALWAYS THE LEADER! We have dominion over the fowl of the air and every “CREEP” and creeping thing John 1:14 GOD IS IN THE BUSINESS OF COMING DOWN TO US! John 11 HIS GLORY IS WITHIN US!
