VOB News March 2018 “Muckleshoot Mission”

The word “Muckleshoot,” as related to me by Pastor Charlotte Williams, means ‘nose’, or high point.  The original word was likely “Buklshuhls”, and probably designated a lookout point, somewhere between the White and Green Rivers, in Washington state.

 

The backstory of the First people in this area is quite fascinating, and being on the land at the Muckleshoot Pentecostal church, was a real honor. Thanks go out to YOU, for praying and supporting our awesome team! We were able to do several sessions of worship, and enjoyed getting to know our brothers and sisters in the Lord, just a little bit more. Please pray for more open doors for these worship & prayer gatherings, as we look to partner with others for breakthrough!

Highlights from the trip:

  • Seeing different folks come forward and enthusiastically speak Scripture over the land, in concert with the worship music, praying and asking the Lord to come and move among the people! They were so faithful!
  • Reconnecting with friends I’ve been blessed to make in recent years.

  • Watching a little girl worship the Lord with her grand mom, and seeing how much she just loved it, was super precious.  Truly, ‘out of the mouths of babes’, will come the worship of the Lord!!
  • Being able to speak to the youth, and encourage them that we need them and what they bring to the church! This was a brief encounter with about 10 kids, but it was such an unexpected delight!

     

     

     

     

  • And just being with our amazing and seasoned team…always a pleasure:    Thanks Victoria, Julie, Marta, Jeff, David, and Eric!!

    Thanks also for praying for the First Nations Leadership Summit I attended in Oroville, CA, mid-February. Again, the highlight for me, was seeing many friends, hearing how they are doing, and just giving or receiving a hug.  Special thanks go out to Linda Coffey, for hanging with me, and helping me out with my ‘semi-sprained’ ankle.

    Quick prayer update: We’ve taken a few hits with recent repairs for the Mexico trucks. The Lord always provides, but if you’ve considered giving, now would be a great time!

    We love you guys and are so, so thankful for you!  Love Wayne & Carol

VOB News January 2016 “New in 2016”

San Diego, Tijuana, The Nations….every tongue and tribe! 

As the new year gets into full swing, we’d like to ask you to pray with us about a few things:

First, for the last 4 years, we have been doing monthly worship & prayer gatherings here in San Diego.  Over the years, at P.o.W, we’ve done 24 hours of worship, 12 hours of worship, 100 days of worship & prayer (last year, from Feb. through May), and, most recently, a week of worship with the Word, with a different team each night, reading & singing the Bible.  In praying about our next steps for what we call P.lace o.f W.orship, we will be moving from monthly to quarterly gatherings. This will free us up to do more outside worship & prayer stuff.  Would you just pray for P.o.W., that  we would continue to have clear guidance & effective gatherings, whenever we do meet? We could use that little prayer push!

Second, we’ve been given the opportunity to go onto several reservations in Southern California, over the course of the next month. We will be doing worship & prayer, in partnership with our First Nations friends.  This has been on our hearts for a very long time, and the Lord seems to be opening the doors.  We would ask you to seriously pray for these opportunities!  It is not to be taken lightly, when the First Nations/Native American people, who we love dearly,  open up their doors for us to come on their land.  We are grateful & pray that the Lord would truly reach the indigenous people of North America!!  Please pray for protection, safety & covering for all who will be a part.

And third, we would just like to ask you for a little extra prayer push for our health.  Sometimes we just both get tired, and could use some extra strength for the work!

Thanks so much!  Love Wayne & Carol

Our Christmas outreach and efforts were a great success. We collected sufficient amount of toys for nearly a thousand kids at the outreach (Carol leading worship below), other weekly colonia outreaches, and for our children in the local Tijuana church (above).

We had thousands of pounds of canned foods and non perishables donated this year. So great to stock some cupboards.
