Every generation gathered around the Abba drum, singing praises to Jesus the risen Christ. “Every tribe, tongue and nation”.

On February 7, we started “30 Days of Worship & Prayer” at P.o.W. On March 7, we decided to extend to 60 Days, through April 7. We’ve had worship & prayer leaders from around our county, come & participate. We’ve had artists, as well as dance teams, lead out. This has been a humbling experience, as we watch many come to participate, including those from many nations (Chinese, Mexican, African, First Nations, European). We’ve also been collecting non-perishables, and it’s so much fun to see what people bring! One of the highlights, so far, has been having First Nations (Native American tribes) worship & prayer leaders, participate with us in culturally relevant ways of worshiping the Lord & praying. Topics for prayer, have included Israel and the elections, Mexico & border town issues, the U.S.A, & unity in the Body of Christ, & the situation between Ukraine & Russia. We’ve prayed extensively for the situation in the Mideast, with ISIS, and have prayed for missionaries all around the world. It is a real privilege & honor to partner with the Lord, through worship & intercession. Please keep us in YOUR prayers, as we consider the next steps.  11008800_838381769590674_7331304105712067597_o

We recently had a wonderful visit to one of the elderly and infirmary homes. We’ve also had two new volunteers helping VOB. Wayne has become quite fond of these young men & is very grateful for their help. It is such a blessing to facilitate someone’s gift in compassion, toward those who are in need of such a gift. In the photo to the left, Gabriel, Randy, & Wayne are praying for a man with some eye problems. Below, this dear lady was so very upset because her friend & bed mate Rosa, was in great pain. While Vicente prayed for her friend, I was glad to cheer the lady up a bit, with some flowers that had been donated earlier that morning. The real miracle, was the lifting of everyone’s spirit, when The Lord came and comforted Rosa. She was a completely different person when we left. Look at that smile! What do you think?
