We have been engrossed in packing up our apartment this month. Our house loan closes tomorrow and we will begin doing some things in the house while moving small things over this weekend. The final part of moving is our furniture, which will be moved next Saturday, March 3rd. We’ll be back with updates then!
When Emil was getting his hair cut, every time he looked in the mirror he saw the next man waiting and God began to give Emil words about him. After praying for an opening, the woman cutting his hair began telling the man about the first time she cut Emil’s hair and the Lord gave him words for him about her life and prophesied over her. The man said to Emil, “Hey, if God tells you anything about me, please tell me! I’ve never gotten a word like that!” Pretty good opening, right? So Emil told the man that God said he had a strong gift but he is constantly discouraged by “friends.” God told him to stay away from those friends and make a commitment to do the things God is calling him to do! After receiving much more love and encouragement from God, the man joyfully embraced his calling. When Emil anointed him, he laughed and cried and said, “I’m ready! I’m not going to run any more.” For the full story in our hot-off-the-press newsletter, go to our “Contact Us” page.
We all have opportunities to show God’s love! Four recent ones that we had are in our most recent newsletter, sent out today, hot off the press! One was about a business phone call during which the man on the other end of the line mentioned he didn’t feel well so we got to pray and one was about a Walmart greeter with whom we shared a way to hear God that has been “foolproof” for us!

A man called for prayer and was introducing himself when the Holy Spirit began to download to Emil about this man and in two minutes, the Lord totally read this man’s mail and he was in tears and agreeing with everything God said. Emil ministered the love of Jesus to him and he was totally set free! God is so awesome and incredible and never stops amazing us at how He ministers to people to break down the walls around their hearts to set them free!
Our July 27th newsletter had the story of Emil praying for his boss Margarita after the Lord told him that she had one leg shorter than the other and He wanted to heal her. Emil prayed and she was healed and she was so excited she took the lift out of her shoe and took it to her chiropractor to show him what God had done! Recently one of her bosses found Emil and said he had just come from the same chiropractor who told him one leg is shorter than the other and to go back to work and find the guy who prayed for Margarita! Sure enough, his leg grew out and he took the lift out of his shoe, too! God is so cool!!!
Emil prayed for two people yesterday and both experienced healing! One who had a dental appointment for two root canals and two crowns, but when Emil prayed the Lord told him it wasn’t his teeth, it was his neck which was pushing on nerves going into his teeth. When he prayed for the neck to be aligned, all pain left! He prayed for a man whose in great pain from an old football injury to his hip and the pain immediately left! Then last evening he began a conversation with a young man and had a word from the Lord that brought him to tears and brought complete confirmation to him of some things he had been considering. God is so awesome!
We have just uploaded two more sermons by Emil to YouTube. “The Light of Jesus” is an encouragement when the world around us looks very dark. “Roadside Stories” tells how lives were changed when God spoke to people on the roadside. Please check our Teachings and Sermons tab for the links to them.
We have added a brand-new page called “Teachings and Sermons by Emil” which has, for now, the two sermons that God impressed upon us to get out to as many people as possible in 2017. Please check out the page for the YouTube links to these two life-changing messages.
I started reading the Bible again from the beginning, Genesis chapter 1. The thing that really stuck out to me this time is that the first thing God did when He began creation of the heavens and earth is that He dispelled the darkness and He got rid of the emptiness! God is not a God who wants us to live in darkness and emptiness! Satan wants us to live life where it seems like the darkness has overwhelmed us and emptiness has become our best friend! Don’t allow Satan to take you there! Instead call on the loving God and Creator of all heaven and earth! Call His resurrection life into your life! To dispel your darkness and to bring in his light! Satan wants us to feel alone, discouraged and abandoned. But God brings life and life more abundantly! Allow God to shine the light of His face upon you and in your life! God is more than ready and willing to change every place in your life where the enemy has a foothold!
We’ve been asking and praying about what we are going to be doing here, BWB-ministry-wise. The Lord told Karen, “Rest, relax, enjoy the journey–there’s a lot to see.” We feel that’s not just the scenery but the needs around us. And to Emil He said, “Accept, expect, expedite. Accept where you are, expect Me to do great things, and when it’s time, I will expedite it!” And Emil feels that word is not just for us but for anyone who’s willing to accept and do the things God is calling us all to do.
