VOB News February 2015 “30 Days of Worship and Prayer”

 “And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

0001WH

It is always our prayer, that VOB could help facilitate the bringing of Jesus’ Name, through worship and compassion.  This month, we have been blessed to do that in a few different ways:

30 Days of Worship and Prayer at P.lace o.f W.orship (P.o.W.):

February, 2015, marks the 3 year anniversary of P.o.W.  For the last 3 years, we have been meeting once a month, to worship GOD, pray and intercede for the nations, or whatever is on His heart. We’ve seen remarkable participation, as people come to worship & honor the Lord through prayer, Scripture reading, singing, worship dance, worship art, and the bringing of non-perishable food items for the poor.  On Saturday, Feb. 7, we launched 30 Days of worship & prayer at P.o.W.  Each day, for 30 days, we are holding either a morning or an evening session.  Each session is being led by a different worship leader or prayer leader from around our city.  We are also having sessions dedicated to worship dance & worship art.  This is a true representation of the Body of Christ coming together for a greater purpose & we hope it will lead to more unity & greater outpouring of GOD’s Spirit, around the world.  “So that the nations will know that HE is GOD & there is no other.”  Please join us with your voice, in prayer, from wherever you are, that the Lord would be glorified, as we come together.  Even though we may be far apart, physically, we are one in HIM!!

On the compassion front, we just received a very large donation of sports equipment, from a local ministry – Sports Gift. that serves the needy in this way.  We were given soccer balls, baseballs, bats, gloves, shinguards, jerseys, hats, and so many other sports related donations!  These items will be used by the community we serve via our partner Vicente, as well as Lily of the Valley orphanage, in Tijuana.  What a pleasure to be able to give such items to kids who could not be happier, just to have a ball to kick around in the street with friends.  It makes for a very happy face, and lots of smiling faces, in a very poor place.

As always, we thank YOU, for your part in VOB.  We could not do this alone.  Our victories are your victories.  Thanks for being a part of sharing the Name of Jesus, throughout the earth!!    Love Wayne & Carol 

p.s. Since the writing of this update we decided that WE ARE EXTENDING THE 30 DAYS!!!! We will be continuing on until Easter, YAHOO!!! After that, only the LORD knows!!!! Please be in prayer, that these 60 DAYS, will be profoundly unique in changing the atmosphere, not just in our city, but all over the world, for the glory of GOD!!!

VOB News January 2015 “VOB Bringing in the New Year!”

Well, here we are: 2015!!  So weird, isn’t it?!      

We had another successful “Toys for Tijuana” drive!
We had another successful “Toys for Tijuana” drive.

As we start this new year, we would like to share a few, very specific, prayer requests for VOB,2015.  We would be grateful, if you would put these on your fridge, or in your Bible, as a quick reminder to pray, as we move into this year of ministry.

  1. Travel:  We have it on our hearts, to travel to very specific nations, this year, for worship & prayer.  Please stand with us, to hear clearly from the Lord for the following:  Ireland, France (Mt. Blanc), Poland, Philippines.  We need: financing, clarity on team members, clarity on task, the RIGHT connections.  The world is spinning in a state of chaos.  We want to be a part of bringing hope & salvation to the nations, through both compassion AND worship!!
  2. Assistance/Volunteers/Team members:  We know sometimes we sound like a broken record on this one, but we really do need the prayer push!  This last year, thankfully, we had some awesome help!  But as the new year has dawned, several of our young helpers, have moved onto other things in life.  We really, really need committed, strong helpers, who will assist in sorting, loading & packing food, on this side of the border.  We also need help to better facilitate our monthly, “P.o.W.” gatherings!  Please put this one high on your list (and if you live in San Diego, consider helping out!).
  3. Health:  We continue to ask for your prayers on this one!  Though better, we could sure use a breakthrough in this area.  Especially for Wayne, who continues to experience some very tough, physical issues (another reason we could use the extra volunteer help).    Also, for Carol, as she continues to deal with fatigue.  Thanks!
  4. Financial and Prayer Partners: We are super blessed with all those who partner with us,  financially & prayerfully!  We would love to have a few more monthly financial partners, and a few more who would labor with us in prayer.  Would you consider that?  Or pray that someone else will?
  5. Specificity:  We have some very specific items we are looking at moving forward with, this year, in Mexico, with prayer & worship, and other outreach opportunities.  As well, we continue to ask the Lord how to most effectively proceed with P.lace o.f W.orship, and any additional worship/intercession items that may be on the table.  Songwriting, clarity in prophetic & intercessory worship, sounds, bandmates, musicians…all of this could use some prayer oil on the gears!

That’s it!  Would you just spend a few minutes a day, standing in the gap, for these items?  The truth is, as you do that, we are able to do the other stuff, and, ultimately the Kingdom of GOD gets advanced.  Thank you & Happy New Year, 2015!!

p.s. We have enclosed our ministry brochures. VOB Brochure – compassion pdf, which you may have seen before, but our VOB Brochure – worship pdf is fresh off the printing press.  We wanted you to have an accurate depiction of both arms of VOB! Let us know if you want any mailed to you to share with a friend!
