VOB News September 2018 “VOB goes to Washington…again”

Two years ago, Carol attended a first of it’s kind event in Washington DC. It was called Alltribes DC First Nations National Day of Prayer. At this event, First Nations leaders from around our nation, read a proclamation granting forgiveness to our nation, for the atrocities committed against Native American peoples.  This was a powerful moment, as a people group forgave, and chose to move forward.

Last year, you may remember VOB took a team to participate in 3 days of around the clock worship on the National Mall in Washington, including leading a session at the 24/7 tent of worship, called David’s Tent.

This year, Alltribes DC and David’s Tent are merging, for a week of 24/7 First Nations worship, and the National Day of Prayer. All of this will take place on the National Mall, just blocks from Capitol Hill, the White House, Supreme Court, and Jefferson, Lincoln and Washington Memorials.  We are happy to announce that we are taking a team once again, this Nov. 7-11!

VOB is super excited to be able to bring a diverse team of worship leaders, intercessors, and artists, to lead worship, pray and build relationship with people from around our country. Last year, when leading worship at David’s Tent, 2 Muslim men came in while we were leading worship, and gave their hearts to the Lord!  We hope to see this again happening, as we lead worship in a very public place, in the heart of our nation’s capitol.  In addition, Carol is helping coordinate teams for the duration of the event.  This is especially dear to her heart, as she meets Native Americans from around the country, and supports them in standing for their people to come to know the Lord.  We could not be more honored to be assisting in this historic week in DC!!! 

We don’t mention funds all that often, although we know last month we did ask you to consider sponsoring our 2 young girls to college. It just so happens that these needs have come back to back. This is why we are feeling the need for a financial push over our normal monthly budget. We really need your support to help us meet these goals. Would you consider giving a special offering to help us? 

And please pray with us, as we prepare our team travels. There is a lot that needs to come together, but not too much for the Lord, and not with you on our team!!

VOB News October 2017 “No Words”

As our 15 person, Awaken the Dawn team ‘debriefed’, ‘no words’ was the phrase everyone kept sharing, over and over.  We were all stunned, not only by the event itself, but also by the unity and joy each person on the team felt, as we worshiped and met believers from all over. Ours, was a team comprised of people from CA, NC, VA, and New Hampshire, First Nations people, and others. We came together at this place and time, to worship the Lord, along with hundreds and hundreds of other believers…..to honor Jesus, with love & humility in our nations capital.  For three straight days, 57 tents, both large & small, were filled with singers, musicians, dancers, artists, intercessors & others, who were interested in only one thing: to honor GOD.

I’m not sure I could ever really convey how ATD was. I’ll try to give a few details: For over 10 blocks, from the Capitol building to the Washington Monument, every state had a tent which represented them, along with 7 large tents representing Israel, student worship, and various regions of the USA. Our team led worship in the CA state tent, Western regional tent, Israel Alliance tent (2x), David’s Tent (see below), and assisted in the NY state tent. Worship went on in every tent from Friday night, through Monday morning.  There were people praying for others everywhere.  Laughter, tears, joy & celebration, intercession for our nation, spilled out of each tent. For myself, walking around late one night, passing tent after tent, seeing one person here, or 5 people there, just lost in worship of our King….again….no words.   At times, it was overwhelming. Every moment,  I was so happy that we had the privilege of being a part of such a beautiful undertaking. Our VOB team was awesome. And we thank YOU, a million times over, for helping us get there! We trust that change for the better will happen in the USA, after so many gathered together to stand in unity & praise to the Lord. Let’s press in for that!

I’ll leave you with one (and there were many) awesome story: as our group led worship in “David’s Tent”, (a 24 hr worship gathering on the ‘Mall’, which has been going on in DC for 2 years), the presence of GOD was so thick. Every person in the tent, was worshiping.  A staff member told me afterwards, that 2 men from Saudi Arabia had wandered into the tent, during our set, having heard the music. This staff member was able to lead these men to the Lord!!!!! He said they were so open to Jesus.


The presence of the One True GOD, His love and His mercy, were just so apparent in that place. That’s what it’s all about: worshipping the King of kings and being a part of His presence, as He touches hearts and brings them into HIS Kingdom. Amen…….Blessed be the Lord!!
