Dear Presence-seeking family,
Are you ready for some testimonies? 🙂 🙂 🙂
Papa God did SOOO much in January! SO MUCH! I can't wait to tell you all about it!
So here's the scoop–including SOULS SAVED! Here's what Jesus did:
1. First, we launched 21 Kisses: The Sure Mercies of David for Your Life.
It's a prophetic study of MERCY from the life of David, and getting the audio edited took a very long time. But, I knew it was an urgent message. The prophetic word of the hour, if you will … and I have received so many testimonies about how this teaching material has blessed people!
If you have heard the 21 Kisses set and haven't sent me your testimony, please send it in! I'd love to hear how God spoke to you from this teaching. 🙂
And if you haven't picked up one of the three product bundles that go with 21 Kisses yet, please go here and get the bundle of your choice. These sets contain loads of encouragement and even inner healing resources. Trust me: you NEED this teaching. The Lord wrecked me for two years with this material before I ever preached it. It's that important.
PLUS, here are some more awesome things God did:
2. Papa made a way for me to submit teaching notes to WomensMinistryTools.com, to be used by women all over the place for sermons and class curricula.
I was blown away by this. I didn't even approach the fabulous folks at WomensMinistryTools; they found me! Thank You, Lord!
So I submitted my teaching series on the Sevenfold Holy Spirit (also see it over on WomensMinistryTools here), and I'll be submitting another series soon. I actually received an email a couple of days ago from the editor there, saying that the series is already being downloaded a bunch! So that means people are teaching about Holy Spirit all over the place, based on work that YOU and Jesus and all of us together have made possible.
Thank you. And thank You, Lord! Isn't that cool?
(By the way, I have to publish the last 2 posts in the series on the 9 Power Gifts of the Spirit, and then I'll send that over too.) 🙂
3. I was able to teach one more Bible journaling class (with the help of my lovely friend Maria) to an amazing group of homeschool children and their mothers.
That is the last Bible journaling class I'll be teaching for awhile, as my intent was to help get it started and let the others take over. Maria will now be continuing that mission, as I move on to other things I've been asked to do.
4. I was able to teach one more Spanish class.
That class finished up my Spanish-teaching assignment for now, but I've been asked to begin teaching some folks in a nearby city soon. They want to learn Spanish, as they minister to the Spanish-speaking community in a local Spanish church (but they speak English).
So, if that works out, I'll be helping out with that soon. Equipping, yeah! It's my FAVORITE thing to do! Anything we can do in the Kingdom to serve one another and help others reach more people is so very worthwhile.
5. We saw TWO souls saved!
Since the last update, the Lord gave me the opportunity to minister to two precious ladies at just the right times. He had already prepared their hearts, and I had the amazing privilege of praying with them both as they gave their lives to Jesus!
THANK YOU, LORD!!!!
I cried like a baby afterward, both times. Just bawled and bawled and bawled. There's NOTHING sweeter on the whole earth than seeing someone give their life to Jesus.
By the way, do you have a soul goal? If not, you need to make one!
Even if you have never thought of yourself as the “evangelist type”! Father will bring you people who need Jesus if you will ask Him!
I have a soul goal of winning 1,000 souls to Jesus by December 31, 2018. So far, I'm at 48–all glory to God.
But the cool thing is, these last two were different. I didn't go out looking for them. Father just brought them to me! Out of the blue! So I'm learning to ASK HIM to bring me more people–people who need to be saved–and give me the words to share with them so that Holy Spirit will move in their hearts!
What's your soul goal? Leave a comment below on this post and we can challenge each other in this thing called going and making disciples of all nations. 🙂
6. I was able to write and teach another webinar, Finding Deep Soul Healing 102!
I offered the Finding Deep Soul Healing 102 class free to everybody who signed up before the class, and 255 people signed up!
We also had a FULL house on the day of the class, with 100 people attending live. That's the maximum number of people who can watch live, based on the limitations of the webinar system. (Not my rule–theirs because of bandwidth.)
And between the live class and the replays, already 262 people have watched this class as of today!
If you haven't watched the Finding Deep Soul Healing 102 class, it was about:
- breaking word curses;
- breaking generational curses;
- getting free from secret societies; and SO much more.
I won't be teaching it again (I realized this month that I get bored producing the same material over and over), but you can download Finding Deep Soul Healing 102 instantly on my Gumroad store here. 🙂
Again, I received huge testimonies on this one. Breaking free from curses is one of the most essential things we need to do to get free in Christ. So, THANK YOU if you attended the class or have watched it afterward. Class was so fun, and I'm thrilled to hear about how people are getting free!
7. Using your donations, we were able to provide for 4 families with material needs.
I won't go into detail about that stuff, but just know that the support you send and the products you buy help many people in both physical and spiritual ways.
8. I was able to lead 3 prayer meetings at my local church.
Love me some prayer. Thank you, Jesus. 🙂
9. We reached people over 85,000 times with the message of Jesus Christ through this blog alone!
85,828 to be precise. That's pageviews in the month of January. And if you recall, that's WAY more than I ever dreamed last year! So, THANK YOU! It's your social media shares, plus your reading your emails that I send you, that made it so high. THANK YOU.
And by the way: I got censored from Facebook a few months ago, and it's still not resolved.
This makes me very upset. I boosted a Facebook post saying that Christians in the USA should pray for President Trump, and Facebook shut down my ad account. I did not violate any of their terms of service in my opinion.
I believe this is simply censorship and activism on the part of whoever is pushing the button over at the Facebook office. 🙁 I've requested support from them over and over, and they won't even respond.
So, I need your help if you're a Facebook user.
I can still put up posts, but I cannot boost those posts or have Facebook ads. That means very few people see them unless people share them, because Facebook is “pay to play”–and Facebook was one of my higher sources of traffic.
So if you're a Facebook user, would you help me? I need people to share posts from this blog on Facebook like crazy, and comment on them and like them so that Facebook's algorithm will allow them to be seen.
Here's the link to my Facebook page, and I'd SO appreciate your help.
(By the way, if you're a pastor or minister of any kind, this is yet another reason why you should have your own self-hosted website. Don't depend on social media to get the Gospel out, because other people own it and can shut you down at a moment's notice. Censorship is getting worse, not better. Just a word to the wise.)
10. We released a total of 19 new blog posts in January alone.
Plus a number of extra encouraging words that go out exclusively by email to my Presence Seekers University members. Plus 7 more posts in February already (this is the 8th).
11. We posted our first blog posts in Spanish!
I apologize for the confusion among those of you who read the Spanish posts and weren't sure why I was posting in Spanish. 🙂 But I have a lovely translator who is helping me, and rest assured that anything you see on the blog in Spanish has already been posted in English first. So if you don't speak Spanish, just ignore. 🙂
However, if you DO speak Spanish or have Spanish-speaking friends, then I hope you are excited about this news with me! Being able to start reaching the Spanish-speaking community is HUGE. But like anything … it takes time to build.
Here are the two encouraging blog posts I've posted in Spanish so far:
So if you speak Spanish, please feel free 🙂 to share these posts with all your friends on social media. They are prophetic and encouraging, and I believe they will be a blessing.
12. Completed 9 mentoring sessions with people I disciple personally here in my hometown.
It was a slower month for in-person work due to so much online work this month.
13. I was so blessed to have several other online outlets pick up some of my encouraging words for wider distribution (The Elijah List, Spirit Fuel, and iBelieve.com).
Isn't God awesome? He's so GOOD!
So that's a summary of what God did last month. He's doing more this month, and I'm so very grateful. I even have huge news to share with you sometime in the next few months, but I'm not ready to unveil it yet. Suffice it to say, it is going to allow us to reach so many more people for Jesus. And what you are doing to help is making it all possible.
So I'm grateful.
And most of all, I'm grateful for YOU.
You all came through in a huge way in January, with your financial partnerships, product purchases, prayers, social media shares, encouraging notes, letters in the mail, emails, and SO MUCH MORE.
It takes a village to reach people for Jesus. If you haven't already, I hope you will pick a post that has comments on it and read the testimonies in the comments about how Papa has encouraged people this month.
And when you read … know that none of these things would be possible without YOU. 🙂
So, thank you. Thank you for laboring together with me in our Father's harvest field.
Some other things I just wanted to fill you in on:
I asked you to pray for several prayer requests. Father has been answering. My husband and I have been working so very hard, but we can see the light at the end of the tunnel in several important ways.
I was going to try to include the status of those prayer requests in this post, but I don't have space. So, please look for those prayer requests and answers on Wednesday. And please know: I SO APPRECIATE YOUR PRAYERS. I can feel them, and Father is answering them, and I need them.
So, thank you.
Beloved, if you haven't already done so, please consider partnering with me financially to help me continue reaching people. You can set your own partnership amount. I have partners at $5, $8, $10, $20, and even over $100 per month. Every gift counts.
And again, thank you for everything.
And I bless you with this blessing today:
“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace” (Numbers 6:24-26).
Together with you in His harvest field,
