June 9th 2013

Dear All,
Greetings from Los Angeles! Today as Elena & I worshiped in the West Region, I was moved by the tremendous warmth and joy of these disciples! Truly this evidences the Spirit’s healing of this awesome group of Christians that have gone through so much over the past few years. Tyler & Shay Sears and Michael & Sharon Kirchner are to be commended for their servant leadership of the West Region that God has used to produce this healing! At the beginning of Sunday’s service, Desheye was introduced as she was baptized Wednesday night, and then to conclude Sunday’s worship, two teens – Yasmine and Noah – were baptized into Christ! God blesses disciples with fruit and healing when there is repentance, mercy and forgiveness! (Luke 5:30-31)

Yasmine and Noah are enthusiastically
welcomed into the Kingdom of God!

Though most of our students are on break and other members are out of town for summer holidays, God continues to work in the City of Angels Church as this week the Lord gave us daily additions – one place membership, one restoration and five baptisms! And to God be the glory!

And now other encouraging news from around LA…

Courtney Parlour of the OC Region: Acts 17:26-28 was being fulfilled in Diana’s life as she became friends in high school with Miguel De La Rosa, Mario Mijango and Rosa Centeno. Years later, these three “high school friends” all became disciples! Diana was encouraged by their changes and started to study the Bible in the South Region. However at that time, she was not yet ready to make Jesus her Lord. About three weeks ago, Diana called Desiree from the South Region who directed her to me. Diana was so eager to be right with God that as we went through the Scriptures, everyone witnessed God molding her heart into the disciple she is today! It is amazing to see how God can turn “a heart of stone into a heart of flesh!” (Ezekiel 36:26)

Diana’s baptism lifts up the
hearts of the OC Sisters!

Luke Speckman: Greetings from Ventura! We had an amazing worship service today as we were joined by the Antelope Valley Sector for “Beach Sunday!” Lou Jack Martinez preached an incredible lesson about the cost of world evangelism to our largest attendance ever of 120! Disciples drove from as far away as San Luis Obispo and California City to be at the service – both about 125 miles one way! We closed-out by presenting the Santa Barbara Mission Team with a crown of thorns similar to what Jesus may have worn and then prayed over them! We are excited to join them for their first service next week on the UCSB Campus!

The awe-inspiring Santa Barbara Mission Team!

After service, we all went down to the beach and had a picnic, great fellowship and a volleyball competition! It was so good to have the AV join us! Please be praying for the forceful advancement of God’s Kingdom and the gathering of the remnant in Santa Barbara!

Cesar Limon of the IE Region: “What god is as great as our God? You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.” (Psalm 77:13-14) God has truly been displaying His “power” here in the Inland Empire! Today we had a breathtaking service as not only two were added to the family, but also the Marriott upgraded us to the nicest room in the hotel! The first addition was Cassidy Deaves placing membership from our sister church in Paris! She moved many to tears today as she shared for communion what God has been teaching her, as she was on the Paris Mission Team. We are very proud of Cassidy and excited to have her here in the Inland Empire, her spiritual birthplace!

The second addition was the baptism of Rhonda, the mother of Kendayce – a recently baptized campus sister! Immediately following Kendayce’s baptism, her mom was concerned that she was in a cult so she discouraged Kendayce from being with the church. Kendayce stood strong and wasn’t swayed in her commitment to God. Then today, her mom shared in uncontrollable tears how grateful she was for her daughter’s example in what a disciple of Jesus is supposed to look like! We love you all and let’s never forget there is truly no one as great as our God!”

After her baptism, Rhonda holds her daughter
Kendayce tightly, as she is so grateful that
Kendayce held so firmly to the truth!

Tyler Sears: “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” (1 Timothy 4:12) Warm greetings from the West Region! What an amazing week as the Lord added three to our number through the waters of baptism! Earlier this week on Wednesday, Desheye Fulton became our sister in Christ after our Women’s Midweek Service! She boldly confessed, “Jesus is Lord and Christ!” and has already expressed to Kip that she wants to be on a mission team! Paul & Kaitlin Kelly have set an example in their Bible Talk as they’ve baptized three people since late April, with Desheye being the most recent!

Even as a baby Christian, Desheye’s
ambition is to be on a mission team!

Equally encouraging were the baptisms of two teenagers – Noah Fenton and Yasmine Vidaurre! Although only 13 and 15 years old respectively, they have deep convictions and have changed so much these past few weeks. Noah is the oldest son of Jim & Donna Fenton who are the Congregational Deacons for our Children’s Ministry (Kids Kingdom) and their personal example has helped Noah make the radical changes necessary as he has studied the Bible for over two years! I was brought to tears as Donna read a letter she wrote to Noah when he was only eleven months old as she prayed for Noah to become – like his namesake – a righteous man of God!

As all parents in the Kingdom dream for their
children, Jim & Donna are ecstatic as their
many prayers have been answered
by Noah’s baptism!

Yasmine was met by the Fenton’s oldest child, Gabi, who brought her out to our Teen Devotional and then started studying the Bible. Jodwin & Geline Surio, our “young hearted” Teen Ministry Leaders, laid down their lives to see this come to fruition and they have been doing such an amazing job! Please continue to pray that the West Region can set an example for [everyone] in [our] speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity so every junior high campus, high school campus, college campus and household in the West Region can be reached!

The crankin’ West Region Teen Ministry!

And now more reports from around the globe…

NEWS FLASH – Jhoally Vallejo: “You are the light of the world… Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in Heaven.” (Matthew 5:14,16) Greetings from Las Vegas! God has been moving powerfully in “Sin City!” On Thursday night, the Married & Singles Bible Talk – led by Emilio Bonilla and Daniela Payan – gathered at the Stashers’ home with 11 visitors! Then Friday we welcomed Tim & Lianne Kernan along with their boys who visited for the weekend. They have been a great encouragement to the church here in Vegas!

 The four courageous Las Vegas Interns: David
Jefferson, Jhoally Vallejo, Daniela
Payan and Emilio Bonilla!

Later that night, we were able to witness an incredible miracle as Yine, a third year UNLV student, made Jesus Lord of her life! She was definitely a true “Berean” as she “examined the Scriptures daily” to find the truth that she had eagerly been seeking! Our Sunday Service was incredible as we were honored to have our dear brother Tim preach a convicting and inspiring lesson! The fellowship continued into the night as “the LV Tribe” gathered together at the Dimitrys’ for the birthday party of Tim and Jason! This is the third year that they shared a celebration of their special day! Tears were shed as everyone shared their heartfelt gratitude for both of these amazing leaders! Please continue to pray for us as we continue to shine the light of the gospel in this very dark city! We cannot wait to see all of you in August. And to God be ALL the glory!

Though the Las Vegas Inaugural Service was just
three weeks ago, Yine is the second
UNLV student baptized!

NEWS FLASH – Gerson Higgins of Caracas: Greetings from Venezuela! For the Inaugural Service of the new Caracas Remnant Group (composed of only my wife Alexandra & me), our Father in Heaven blessed us with nine people in attendance! At the service, we showed the video of a song entitled, Scars. I shared my life and scars, then preached Jeremiah 29:11-13 as hope for a new life! All the guests left very moved! Keep us in your prayers!

Matt Sullivan of Orlando: “Fishermen will stand along the shore; from En Gedi to En Eglaim (Cocoa Beach to Miami) there will be places for spreading nets. The fish will be of many kinds – like the fish of the Great Sea… Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear, because the water from the sanctuary flows to them!”  (Ezekiel 47:10, 12)

Sunday we had our annual Beach Service at Cocoa Beach and it was an incredible time! After almost two weeks of rain from the tropical storms forming in the Gulf & Atlantic, we were in need of much prayer and a small miracle in order to have a beach service! Our God heard our prayers as Sunday was possibly the sunniest and most beautiful day of the summer so far! Not a drop of rain!

At the beginning of the service we were fired-up to welcome in true “Floridians,” Ted & Cathy Green! They placed membership today coming from the birthplace of the movement – our awesome sister church in Portland. Having been converted in the “old Gainesville days,” the Greens are an amazing addition and will certainly help us gather God’s remnant!

Both graduates of the University of Florida in the
70’s, Ted & Cathy Green’s heart is to help the
remnant find God’s new movement!

After Mike Patterson preached a powerful message from Ecclesiastes calling us to the Real Pursuit of Happiness, we had two come forward to give their good confession of faith. First, KeyAnna from Full Sail University (truly an “AMS” College) and a singer, shared how grateful she was that June Fisher (whom we call “June the Baptist” because she has been so fruitful) shared with her. Then, she expressed her appreciation for the whole church accepting and loving her. The AMS Ministry continues to grow!

Orlando’s AMS Ministry brings KeyAnna – a very
talented singer – into God’s Family!

Then another college student Christian inspired us all with his zeal as he shared his gratefulness for Brady Vaughn (baptized last week) meeting him, and all the campus guys for showing him the true way to be saved. Our Campus Ministry is off to an awesome summer! Then we had the whole church go down to the water’s edge and we were able to witness these two incredible disciples get all their sins washed away in the Atlantic! After the baptisms, KeyAnna sang a song about baptism and after a few verses we all joined in!

Since our first Sunday, August 12, 2012 to today, the Lord has added 29 who placed membership, 4 who have been restored, and 50 who have been baptized for a total of 83 additions to our congregation in 43 weeks! Pray that we make our prayer goal of 100 additions in our first year! Praise the Lord that “water from His sanctuary flows into Orlando!

Maria Franklin of Chicago: “Blessed are the merciful for they will be shown mercy.” (Matthew 5:7) In efforts to get as many as possible out to this year’s momentous GLC, we had a “tagging” event in Crest Hill, the original tagging sight where we began five years ago! Our God blew-it-out as we collected over $6,000!

Today, we had an electric service with 322 in attendance! First, Joe Chiappetta’s convicting sermon entitled, Jesus’ Heart For The Disabled stirred our hearts as Joe prepared us for our Annual Day of MERCY this Saturday! The Chiappettas are our diligent, serving and compassionate MERCY Directors in Chicago! Year after year, they have done an extraordinary job overseeing the benevolent arm of the church, and have led us powerfully in serving men and women with disabilities, who sadly are rejected by society and have no family or friends to care for them and love them. This year, we will be serving them again and we are beyond excited to make an impact as we show them the true love of Jesus!

Chicago’s dynamic MERCY Directors – Joe
& Denise Chiappetta!

Then, a very special and exciting announcement was made as the new Central Region was introduced to the entire Chicago Church! This new region will cover the many central suburbs west of the downtown area! They will be reaching-out to a population of over 200,000 lost souls! The Mighty Central Region will be powerfully led by our current intern Victor Montano along with our dear sister from the Latin Ministry, Karla Castellanos! We are so excited to see how God will use this new ministry to bring Him glory!

Chicago’s new Central Region!

Raul Moreno: “Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.” (Luke 15:6) Greetings from the now 57 disciples of the Sao Paulo International Christian Church! Last week, the church was blessed to see Djaldo & Sandra restored as “lost sheep” of the Lord! This great married couple was baptized in 1992, but sadly fell away in 2003 and wandered in denominational “Christianity” to no avail. They even tried going back to our former fellowship to get restored, but unfortunately they found the church very different from the church they were baptized in. Not by chance but by God, they heard that Renato & Maria Jose Tria had joined God’s new movement through someone criticizing their decision! This sparked a curiosity to see and check it out for themselves! That they did and they saw the love of the disciples for God and for this lost world and after two months of studying they were officially restored last week to God’s glory!

Renato & Maria Jose “welcome home”
Djaldo, Sandra and their daughter!

This week, Eduardo was restored! Eduardo was a former “Kingdom Kid” who fell away largely due to the lukewarm commitment and lack of discipling in our former fellowship. But God still had a plan for him as his parents placed membership in our congregation about a month ago. As Eduardo saw the commitment and love in the young people, he decided to study the Bible again and was thus restored!

Eduardo (left), a prodigal son, is drawn back into
the Kingdom through the love of the disciples!

Last but not least, Janaina was baptized today! She is a beloved family member of some of the disciples who never stopped reaching out to her. Finally, after about a year of coming out to church, “she turned herself in” and found salvation in the saving waters of baptism! Her husband has also decided to start studying the Bible! We love you with the love of the Lord!

Janaina is so grateful that the disciples in
her family never gave up on her to
become a Christian!

Ron Harding: Greetings from Washington DC! As we prepare to send-out the remainder of our 16 member Denver Mission Team, two disciples to Boston, and six disciples to Dallas (24 in total!), God gave us our 40th addition of 2013 – 26 baptisms, three restorations and 11 place memberships! Rebecca Douglas moved our hearts with some powerful sharing as she was restored to the fellowship after seven years! With Rebecca’s restoration, our “Supa NoVA” (Northern Virginia) House Church – led by James & Jennifer Haynes – has grown from nine to 15 in just the last two months! Looking forward to being with all of you at this year’s GLC!

Rebecca’s joy in her salvation
lights up the whole room!

Michael Williamson of London: Cheers mates from London! The week kicked-off with a blast as the sisters baptized a single Asian woman Karman Wednesday night! Karman, who originally was Buddhist, has been diligently studying for the past month and firmly saw her need to make Jesus Lord no matter what the cost. Karman, who used to be a music promoter in her native country of Hong Kong, commented in reference to Matthew 28:18-20 that she was now a “Jesus promoter!”

Married couples in the London ICC enjoyed their First Annual Marriage Retreat this weekend in England’s beautiful Brighton Beach! Lessons were presented by Blaise & Patricia Feumba, Michael & Maria Hart, George & Angelica Grima, and Michele & me. Along with the great fellowship, meals and lessons, we also enjoyed Saturday evening which was filled with fun and entertainment – the Newlywed Game and a dance competition! Sean & Sandra Corrigan won the Newlywed Game! And the dance competition was won by Geoff & Typhene Baker, who drove all the way from Oxford to join us!

The Dance Competition Judging Panel crowns
as champions – Geoff & Typhene!

On Sunday morning, the sermon was the theme of the retreat, Dancing With Your Star! The weekend retreat inspired every married couple to not only continue “dancing” with each of their spouses, but also with our “one and only star” Jesus Christ! A special thanks to the Singles, Campus and Teens as they hosted their first service without the Marrieds this week! God is stretching the faith of the disciples!

Pillars in the Marrieds Ministry, Jacques &
Jeannette Groenewald enjoy the
retreat at Brighton Beach!

Tim Power: Today in Boston, we officially announced that Kevin Carr will be joining me in Dallas next month for “phase one” of the DFW Church planting! Kevin – Brian Carr’s brother – stepped-out of his comforts in January on a one way flight to Boston, where after a week of studying the Scriptures was baptized into the Kingdom! I’m so excited that he is coming with me as he is a native to the South! The Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Church is ready to rock!

Also, I am super inspired by Tony Rivero, a “survivor” already living in Dallas who was baptized in 1993 with Cory in South Central LA. We spent five hours with our dear brothers Cory Blackwell and Chris Bryant, as they helped draw out the deep waters of Tony’s heart. (Proverbs 20:5) As the waters were drawn, many tears were shed for the past hurts and pain of our youth, which is the beginning to much healing. Keep our brother Tony in your prayers, he is already proven to be extremely instrumental for laying the ground work in Dallas.

Finally, as “Molten Colten – the White Hot Evangelist” led the Campus and Singles on a retreat this weekend, I was honored to lead the more “seasoned members” of the church in his absence. We had a very heartfelt worship! Pray for the Boston and DFW Churches! Grace and peace.

Lola Lof of Kinshasa: Greetings! The KICC brothers and sisters in the Democratic Republic of Congo are delighted to share with you some good news of the week! We were so happy to come before the presence of the Lord on Sunday as 328 people worshiped God! Of special note, Lydia was restored in God’s family. Her miraculous return recalled to me the time of persecution in the year 2010! But today she understands that she is a daughter of the Father and that she is back “home” thanks to the efforts of Lili, a sister in the Campus Ministry!

As with her namesake, Lydia (left) promises to
be a powerful force in the Women’s Ministry!

Sharmayne Villarino: Aloha from the San Francisco Bay Area! The church was inspired this weekend as we witnessed the union of Robbie & Ashley, our two mission team members who moved from Hawaii! Robbie & Ashley are an amazing couple who have touched the hearts of many people across the movement! Disciples from Orlando, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, Phoenix, Denver, Honolulu, Hilo and Mexico City joined us for the wedding!

Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Robbie
& Ashley Craddock!

So for today, we had a “Hawaiian-led” Sunday service by disciples who are or had previously been disciples in Hawaii! Rob & Burgandie Onekea welcomed everyone; Jay Hernandez preached an amazing sermon; Kyle & Joan Bartholomew dug down deep into our hearts with the communion message; and Evan & Kelly Bartholomew inspired us in our contribution! The room was packed with 94 people in attendance! Please keep us in your prayers. Mahalo!

Jared McGee: “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well!” (Psalm 139:13-14) Greetings from Santiago de Chile! What a miraculous week it has been in the Lord! Forever etched in my memory will be the grand entrance into this world of my baby girl, Priscilla Grace McGee – at 7:30PM on Saturday night! What miraculous power God has as He “fearfully and wonderfully… knit” each and every one of us together and gave us the precious gift of life!

Rachel and Priscilla are doing fantastic, with Priscilla weighing in at 8.2 lbs. and measuring 20 inches! We are so grateful for the prayers and love of the disciples all over the world but especially those of our beloved Santiago Church! The brothers and sisters came out in droves to visit us and at one point I thought we were going to break into a devo at the hospital! The love of Jesus was powerfully on display prompting the nurse staff to inquire which church we had come from! What the nurses saw was so much more than the protocol of just dropping off of a few gifts or pleasantries, they saw the heart of God that we all share!

Mom & Dad are radiant at the birth of their
dear daughter – Priscilla Grace!

Excitingly at service, we saw even more evidence that “[God’s] works are wonderful” as Ines was baptized! Ines is the sister of one of our single brothers Guillermo, who was just baptized a little over a year ago! Now, these siblings are drawn together by something thicker than blood – the love of Christ! As my child rests by my side, I understand greater than ever before the warmth and tender love of God, but as I watch the news, I am also keenly aware of the darkness of the world as the ruthlessness of Satan’s attacks begin from infancy! Let us pray that God’s protection and providence is with all of our children – physical and spiritual – and that through His power we can bring more and more people into God’s family – the church! Y a Dios sea la gloria!

Ines is so grateful to her brother for introducing
her to God’s love expressed through the
affection of the Santiago Sisters!

Eugen Sobolov of Kiev: “But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior…” (Titus 3:4-7) Thank God for the wide river Dnipro that He created to flow through Kiev! Now disciples have a lot of water to baptize people! This Sunday, the whole Kiev Church was so inspired to gather together for service and everybody was so happy to finish this service with the baptism of Dimitry – campus student of National Technical University of Ukraine! Now it is obvious to Dimitry (and to all of us) why God brought Him to Kiev – to help him to find a new family! The true family of God!

As the entire Kiev Church looks on, Dimitry
is baptized in the Dnipro River!

Jeremy Ciaramella of Phoenix: “While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, ‘Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.’ So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off. The two of them, sent on their way by the Holy Spirit…”(Acts 13:2-4) Today the Phoenix Church had “bittersweet rejoicing” as we officially witnessed the Holy Spirit sending-out two very dear families – the Willsons and the Garridos!

The Willsons were with Chris & Sonja Chloupek when they began the “Bible Talk” in their living room which – with the addition of the mission team from Portland led by Matt & Helen Sullivan – grew into the Phoenix Church! Today, Chad gave a stirring communion reminding us that the cross is the motivation to look to when we face our most challenging failures. Many tears were shed as we heard our brother humbly share about God’s decision to choose him again to help build another church this time in Denver. I was especially encouraged by their 12 year old daughter, Hunter, who expressed that this “missionary journey” was “a great adventure!”

The Willson Family sets off on their
newest adventure to Denver!

Mark Garrido addressed the church today with a powerful sermon coming from the depths of his heart. He recounted both the history from the Scriptures around The Valley of Dry Bones and the history around his life in the Phoenix Church Family. Mark at times had us in tears and then had us cracking up and in other moments, he has grown so much with regard to his speaking!

Of course we had to send them off with some of the traditional gifts – Coldstone Gift Cards for all the kids and “St. Arbucks” Coffee Gift Cards for the adults! In addition, the Willsons were given a special framed poster about “Determination” with a reminder of Arizona in the background – the Grand Canyon. Mark was given a special charge and a full replica of the scabbard and sword “Sting” from The Lord of The Rings. The sword to remind him of course of the sting of the truth when we wield the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God, to fight His battles, to pierce the darkness, and to speak the truth in love!

Mark lifts the “sword of the Lord” as he leads his
family to LA to train for the Guam Mission Team!

It was moving for the whole congregation to get on its knees and pray to God on behalf of these couples. Then we stood and sang arm-in-arm,We Love You With The Love Of The Lord! Then it was off to have a great BBQ and farewell party at our new place – the Garridos’ old place! Today was such an inspiring day! And to God be all the glory!

Andrew Smellie of New York City: “Then Moses went up to God, and the Lord called to him from the mountain and said, ‘This is what you are to say to the house of Jacob and what you are to tell the people of Israel: ‘You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself. Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, you will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words you are to speak to the Israelites.” (Exodus 19:3-6 emphasis added)

This past weekend, the Boston, Syracuse and New York City Churches (as well as a sister from Orlando, Florida!) came together for our 2013 Northeast Campus & Young Singles Retreat entitled, Called To The Mountain! Hosted at the Clarion Hotel in East Windsor, Connecticut, over 100 disciples came together for powerful preaching, deep fellowship and dancing into the night!

The Called To The Mountain Retreat united the
disciples from Boston, New York
City and Syracuse!

It was a tremendous joy working with my dear brother Coltin Rohn, the Evangelist for the Boston Church – the host congregation for the conference! He directed a 20 minute evangelism video entitled, Mr. Relatable, featuring one of the NYC’s missionaries to Boston – Brian Carr! We all laughed out loud as we could all “relate” to the struggles of being “relatable to the lost!”

As he preaches, Coltin aka “Mr. Relatable”
lays out the truth!

Back in New York City, the Marrieds continued to forcefully proclaim the message, as my close brother Dr. Kenneth Chin preached the Word for their service! Ken & his wife Cheryl (also a physician) serve nobly as the NYC Directors of our MERCYww! Today the church was encouraged to begin one of our projects for the Day of MERCY by presenting one of our more mature sisters in the church, Marilyn LaRose, with a “MERCY Makeover Check” as her home will have a “Kingdom Makeover” by the NYC disciples next Saturday! Marilyn is a cancer survivor who has been a joy to the church since her baptism last year! From all reports, Marilyn rejoiced in her surprise as she was presented with a “Publishers Clearinghouse type check” for her perseverance through tough life challenges! What a weekend as we rejoiced in bringing glory to the Lord! We love you!

Marilyn jumps for joy as she receives
her “MERCY Makeover Check!”

Debs Rajan of Chennai: Greetings from India! Even though Satan might have knocked-down Raja, our spirits are still high! Sadly, Raja was diagnosed with a “Disc Prolapse” and was rushed to hospital. Thank you for all of your prayers. After two weeks of being bedridden, he is able to stand for a short while and take a few steps. I am super proud of my husband because of his zeal for the Lord as even on his bed he shared his faith in the hospital with several staff members including Sharon, who is now studying the Bible! Also, he counted the cost with Sonal while lying on his bed. Sonal is from Andaman and the Nicobar Islands and doing her Civil Services. She was met by Deborah – our campus leader – during the May Campaign and was baptized this week! Please continue to pray for Raja and God’s new movement in India!

Even with Raja bedridden, God uses the disciples
to heal Sonal’s hurting heart in baptism!

Dearest Brothers and Sisters, This coming Saturday June 15, 2013 is our International Day of MERCY for all of the SoldOut Movement Churches around the world! Therefore, on Friday June 14, 2013, all of the disciples in these congregations will join together in a special Day of Prayer and Fasting. Let us start praying now that as we minister to the “poor and needy” in our communities during the International Day of MERCY that the world will come to know the hope that heals all the pains of this life – Jesus Christ!

The International Day of MERCY is
this Saturday, June 15, 2013!

Also, let’s pray on Friday for our dear “soldier of the cross” Raja Rajan of Chennai! Pray for Raja’s full recovery so that God can continue to use him to propel His gospel throughout India!

Heroes in the faith, Raja & Debs have requested
prayers for the Chennai Church and
for Raja’s recovery!

As well, let’s continue to pray for the 2013 Global Leadership Conference on August 4-6, 2013!

The 2013 GLC will be held on August 4-6, 2013!

Finally, keep on praying for our four plantings this year – Dallas-Ft. Worth, Denver, Las Vegas and Sydney! And may “the Lord be with your spirit. Grace be with you!” (2 Timothy 4:22)
Much love,
