From Macedonia; June 17th, 2010

Last night we had our first meeting, and it was beautiful.  I (Chris) spoke first, about the heart and the mind, dwelling within the voice of the Lord.  Craig spoke after me about the Face of Christ.
The Holy Spirit was profoundly generous with prophetic ministry….   the Lord spoke directly to many people, and hearts were deeply ministered to. Craig had a word of knowledge about right ears needing to be opened, and three people responded. All three were completely healed!  Thank you Lord~!

We’re heading to the Gypsy village this afternoon to visit the pre-school.  They are starting a child sponsorship program that I would like to learn more about.  I believe there’s many of us American’s that may be interested in helping this amazing ministry to muslim children.

This evening we’ll begin our meetings in Greece.  I’m not sure if we’ll have another opportunity to write, because the place we’re staying in Greece doesn’t have internet.  But I will try my best to get to an internet cafe.

We made it home late last night and can finally send you an update on the trip :

Our time in both Greece and Macedonia was really wonderful.  The people in these churches are truly becoming family to us, and it was a joy to be with them again.

As you know, this was the first trip where my husband Craig and our two sons came along, and it was absolutely tremendous.  Craig and I ministered together with teachings, prophetic ministry and healing prayer, and Hugh and Sam both were able to use their gifts in many ways.  Hugh was our resident photographer (Click the link below to see the pictures), and Sam joined in the prophetic ministry (in Macedonia).

The ministry time in Thessaloniki was a thrill. There was a grace for quite a lot of prophetic ministry, as the Spirit of the Lord moved sweetly through the room.  On Monday evening the Lord began moving in healings.  There was a word of knowledge about ankles, and a woman came forward that had just been on crutches recently and her ankle had yet to heal completely.  We prayed, and the Lord restored her ankle!  Then there was a word of knowledge about back pain, and there was at least one total healing of all pain right there on the spot. It was really wonderful!  There was so much going on, it’s hard to tell all the testimonies.   The Lord ministered in power as He released people into their next seasons and called people into deeper manifestations of their gifts.   It felt to me like God Himself was strengthening the ground beneath our feet.

It’s such a deep joy of mine to be with the Body of Christ in places around the world and find the unity of the Spirit and the bond of peace.  Our God is mighty indeed!

Thank you all so so so much for your financial support, your prayers and your friendship.   We truly and honestly believe that these ministry trips are only possible because the church family pulls together in such a profound way.  You’re all amazing.  I pray that God pours out overwhelming blessing in your lives!
