Journal of Joy ~ Spokane, Washington, USA ~ December 21-23, 2001
Beginning Prophetic Glory Ring Workshop
09.21.2001, Friday ~ We left Vancouver, Washington heading for Spokane, Washington about 9:30 AM. As I have family in Spokane, my beautiful daughter, Angela and grandson, Elijah (17 months) joined me for the journey. The greatest benefit to me of all is rare and precious time with my family, in addition to having an amazing chauffeur for the six-hour drive. Elijah loves to go "bye-bye" and as long as there is enough food and drink, he is one very happy child. We stopped at a few places to pray and pour out “Celebrate HIS Freedom!” Holy Anointing Oil! in the Columbia, Yakima and Snake Rivers.
Sharon and Constance met me at the Spokane Junior Academy where the Workshop was scheduled. As they have both been in ministry and are experienced in worship arts, the preparation and setup were seemingly the easiest ever. The tables and chairs were readily available in the large open atmosphere of a school gymnasium. We devoted about two hours for setup, prayer and fellowship. It was simply delightful.
My brother, Mark provided lodging for my daughter, grandson and I. It was a precious gift of my FATHER God to be able to spend time with my family and facilitate a Workshop in the same weekend. The LORD has HIS ways of showering us with HIS favor and grace. When one travels in ministry any time with family becomes even more precious and cherished.
09.22.2001, Saturday ~ During my early, morning prayer time I awakened to the realization that including this Workshop, the LORD has taken me to Canada, Mexico, California, Oregon and Washington, the entire West Coast in the last five months for HIS purposes, which was absolutely was the planning of God!
The day was full of the gifts and blessings of the Most High God! Constance blessed HGRM with a beautiful American flag and two worship streamers. As we had just begun our “Jubilee Prayers for America” it seemed very significant to be taking home an American Flag.
Eight women attended the workshop and Constance and Sharon made the day very, very easy for me and their intercession prior to the Workshop was evident in the lack of warfare.
Traveling with the LORD, I have learned that HE has specific releases, purposes, plans, destinies and desires for each territory and person. The specific anointing over this Workshop was healing and it was the first thing on HIS agenda. We began the workshop with a time of prayer ministry and words of knowledge. The first word of knowledge was for a hip and one of the women responded, “The hip is here! The hip is here!” We all giggled as Yeshua healed her hip. It is so important when the LORD brings a word of knowledge that the person it is intended for receives and believes the word from the Holy Spirit. Even though I have been only traveling in ministry for three years, I remain amazed at how gentle, faithful, precise, and loving the Holy Spirit is when the prophetic words are released over the Glory Rings. The Holy Spirit’s faithful presence, power, grace, mercy, love and joy never cease to amaze me.
09.23.2001, Sunday ~ The LORD provided a safe, easy journey home, mostly because my beautiful, anointed daughter drove while I rested! I do truly appreciate the gift of a chauffeur! Thank You. Jesus!
With a grateful heart for the faithful prayers of the HGRM Prayer Shield and the generous hearts of GOD's people.
