Everyday Decisions
March & April 2013

At 21 years of age, my friend M., from Glasgow, found herself hungry for something more.  Her life felt empty, and in her search for truth, she found God in her bedroom, as she experienced the power of repentance, and the cross via a youtube video. She had a friend in United States who began witnessing to her on Facebook about Jesus’ name baptism and the infilling of the Holy Spirit; this friend connected her with another friend living in London, who connected her with New Life Church.  M. had never been in a Pentecostal service before, but she immediately responded to the power she felt.  Within a few weeks, she was beautifully and powerfully filled with the Holy Ghost and made the decision to be baptised in the precious name of Jesus.  Watching her grow in her new found walk with Christ has been an absolute joy, along with the many others in New Life Church who have made the decision over the last few months to follow Jesus, no turning back.  And it reminded me once more of the everyday decision of our lives to live for Him, to live for souls in the UK, no turning back.  A decision that is too important to be anything less than life consuming.  We must follow Him, we must reach for the souls of our generation, pulling them out of the fires of hell in England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland, in the USA, everywhere we go, and we cannot afford to look back.  The costs of eternity are too great, the souls too precious to be taken lightly.

Way too much fun with Hannah and Jenny

While in Monaco for the WNOP Europe Middle East and Harvest Bible College Prayer trip earlier this month, I again was drawn to the treasure of souls, while speaking with young people from France, Monaco, London and one incredible kid we'll call Fred.  In the moonlight beauty of Monaco, the young people spoke of their dreams, their hopes, their futures, and we told them why we were there, sharing our dream of a Jesus Generation.  As we were talking Fred turned to me, “Hablas Español?” and it turned out he had family from Honduras, where I went on my very first missions trip over 10 years ago.  My heart caught in my throat as he began to tell me of his family in Spain, UK, and right near my hometown in Florida, but my attention was captivated more as I sensed his hunger for God.  “You are here with a church?  What church is it?  We only have two in Monaco, Catholic and Protestant.”  It turned out he went to school with some of the young people from the church we were with, and already knew there was something different about them.  In his 16 year old curiosity, he turned to the four of us standing there, “Do you sing?  I think you must sing.  I can hear it in your voice, please sing for me!”  So we sang for him, and his eyes began to shine with tears as he clutched his heart, “I can feel something when you sing, its like fire, it makes my heart pound! and my hairs stand up, I have never felt this power before!  It’s amazing!  What is this power?!”  and my heart breaks with the burden of Christ even more as I write this letter knowing that in my generation there are so many more who have never experienced the life giving power of Jesus.  We have been positioned in these last days to influence the lives of those around us, but so many times we are distracted by the cares of life from our true calling to reach the lost.  God help us, God help me to impact my generation like never before for Him.  No turning back.  To touch the M's, the Fred's, the Rita's, the Maria's of UK and Europe with the light of God.

You, my supporters, my friends, are an integral part of this.  Everyday your prayers and financial support make it possible to continue to serve the beautiful people of United Kingdom.  To those whose designated offerings made it possible for me to go to Monaco, thank you, because without you I would never have met Foaud, I would never have seen four souls filled with the Holy Spirit in services, as the power of God truly fell in our midst.  Your giving makes it possible for me to teach Bible Studies, meet new contacts, and minister in New Life Church.  Your prayers are a part of every breakthrough in Glasgow and throughout the UK.  Thank you.  Due to the economic situation in the United States, I have experienced a significant shortfall in my PIM (Partner In Missions) support, which has made it very difficult to operate as an AIMer in the UK.  Because of this, I desperately need new PIM’s, monthly sponsors, to continue on the field, and complete my term.  I would ask you to sincerely pray about partnering with me, and if you are already, to consider raising your support by even $10 a month.  It would make a huge difference to me, and a huge difference to the United Kingdom.  To those of you who have been able to give faithfully, who have given, not knowing the desperation of the need, thank you so so much.  You have been part of a miracle.  A lot of miracles, actually.  You have helped to make it possible for me to serve these people, whom I love so very much, and with your strength and the power of God behind me I will continue to reach for souls in the United Kingdom, no turning back.  Thank you, muchas gracias, and may God richly bless you, o Dios te bendiga muchisimo,
