Beginning Prophetic Glory Ring Workshop and Experiential Communion Service
07.02.2010, Friday ~ There is a sense of holy anticipation in the air as this is our first Workshop in South Carolina and we are so excited to be here. In the afternoon, we set up for the Experiential Communion Serviceat the Lantern of Love. Gratefully, Valerie has joined me on this ministry outreach providing amazing administrative and organizational gifts. Oh, the kindness of GOD is ever present in our lives. Where ever we travel, we find people hungry for just one touch of YESHUA’S love, power, healing, redemption, atonement and glory…and without fail HE remains true to HIS character and word.
7.03.2010, Saturday ~ The Beginning Glory Ring Workshop was held at Anna’s Arbor, a local establishment which qualified this experience as “marketplace” ministry. The “Beauty of HIS Holiness” was the theme of the catered luncheon where we enjoyed fellowship at an extravagantly adorned table. Corporately we made, “The Beauty of HIS Holiness” Prophetic Glory Ring for the City of Chester, South Carolina. It was given to DeniseAnn Crenshaw, Lantern of Love Ministries. Many participating in this workshop were pastors and leaders of other local ministries. Each person pressed in and made a Prophetic Glory Ring even though artistic expression is a huge stretch for many. Following the Workshop, we gathered at the “Cyclone” a local eatery.
07.04.2010, Sunday ~ In the morning we attended “The Eternal Rock Church,” then we dined at the Currence Family Restaurant serving authentic “soul food.” During the afternoon we went on a little prayer journey to a place that the pastor recommended and other strategic locations. In the evening we gathered at “Mission House of Deliverance Global Ministries” where the Holy Spirit opened a door for me to minister. I offer a heartfelt thanks to Brother Currence for extending a warm welcome to this Oregonian. The LORD’s GLORY showed up and there was dancing in the House of the LORD! Oh My! HIS Amazing Grace! It was truly a blessed Fourth of July, a Celebration of our Nation’s Birth, a Celebration of our Christian Heritage, and a Celebration of the Unity we share in Christ Jesus!
07.05.2010, Monday ~ This day was set apart for a prayer journey to Columbia, the Capitol City of South Carolina and to Isle of the Palms, a famous South Carolina destination along the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean. The very tall, majestic Palm trees at the Capitol and along the coast were truly amazing particularly to a native Oregonian, as Palm trees are not common in the Northwest.
07.06.2010, Tuesday ~ In the last fifteen days, I have traveled through nine States of America, which has been an unprecedented journey. This morning as we traveled north to Charlotte, North Carolina for a connecting flight home, we stopped in Fort Mill and toured the Morning Star Fellowship Church at Heritage International Ministries. It was a place to pray and pour out Holy Anointing Oil!
We remain ever grateful to the LORD for HIS sustaining mercies and grace, for HIS sweet invitation to participate in HIS KINGDOM on earth, for HIS unconditional love, relentless faith, tender forgiveness, and kind favor. We are also grateful to all HIS people that HE places along our path bringing gifts of joy, peace, provision, sustenance and favor!
