Claiming Chapel for Year Round FP

Please pray with us that we would be granted access to the ramshackle chapel in the background of this picture. It has been on this pullout for over 20 years and we’re told has been unused for many years. We believe it could be our Year Round Free Prayer center and are praying for God to bring it about!

New Spot Confirmed!

Today we tried out our new spot on SH 67, seven miles south of Hwy 24 in Divide, Colorado, where we will be set up for the next 3 days during the 2018 Salute to American Veterans Rally in Cripple Creek. We were both feeling a bit unsettled and could feel the spiritual warfare against us. We had just prayed that God would confirm that the spot was safe and where He wanted us to be when a Teller County truck pulled in and a guy jumped out. We prayed for favor under our breath, and he came right over to us with his arms straight out to his side and a big grin on his face, “Free Prayer?! Who wouldn’t want Free Prayer????” And sure enough, he asked us to pray for him. When we finished, he had tears in his eyes and said, “Only God would give you the things you just prayed. Everything you prayed was spot on and there’s no way you would know what’s going on in my family and my life.” He stayed at least a half an hour and was pleased when we told him he was our confirmation! He loved our porta potty trailer and said it shows people how committed we are to be out if we would go so far as to drag a porta potty along! He was a great encouragement in every way and we look forward to seeing him again!

A Productive Day Due to Lengthened Stay!

Today was an amazing day on the roadside! We were set up just outside of Florissant. For five hours straight we had people literally waiting one after the other the entire time! We were so thankful for our porta potty trailer! As we would finish praying with one person and they would stand up, the next car would pull in! So many incredible things and one lady even stopped to give us a praise report from prayer she received from us three weeks ago that God miraculously answered! God is amazing! 

Divine Appointment in Midst of Human Complications!

Thank you for praying! During Emil’s back-and-forth discussions with the woman at the porta potty company about the rider, she commented twice, “We’re just going to plead the blood of Jesus over that unit that nothing can happen to it while you and your wife have it!” So cool! She loves our ministry and asked Emil where we set up and said she’ll watch for us and stop! That was a huge praise that came out of all this!!! God has His divine appointments in the midst of human complications!!! The rider issue got resolved late this afternoon and we will pick up the unit Friday morning and post a pic!

A Family Affair

Today on the roadside was incredible!!! God showed up in spectacular fashion!!!! A family stopped and The Lord read all of their mail from their 5 year old daughter, 8 year old son, 16 year old son, and the parents. The 8 year old even cried as God said he would heal people thru praying for them! The father had his deaf ear opened and back healed from years of pain!!! God is wonderfully wonderful!! The whole family cried and hugged as they got ready to leave! We were with them on the roadside for 2 hours as The Holy Spirit lit up each family member one by one!! Thank You Lord!!

Evacuees Are Getting Prayer

Emil and his brother Allan have been on the roadside for two hours now and he just called me with an update. Many people have stopped affected by the High Chateau fire and the Weston fire south of us. One man in tears was just evacuating from the house his father had left him when he died a few months ago. They got to pray with him, and all who stop are thanking them for being out there to pray for them. Tons of thumbs up, honks and waves.

A Developing Pattern

In the nearly 15 years of doing the roadside ministry, we had someone stop once in Arizona when we first started who said he felt he was supposed to pray for us and we never forgot how great that felt. It hasn’t happened since, but in the last week, three separate couples have stopped on three different days and said, “The Lord told us to stop and pray for you!” Without us even voicing any needs, all three prayed the exact same thing: for protection and increased finances! It makes us wonder what battles the Lord is fighting on our behalf. It’s very humbling to have the Lord use people we’ve never met to lift us up and we are so grateful for their obedience. It’s also interesting that each time, as they prayed for us, the Holy Spirit downloaded a word for them and cut right to the heart of things with which they were dealing. He blesses us all without any of us needing to speak out a prayer request! Wow, this is a new thing!

New Site

We sat out on our new site yesterday! Tons of traffic at that intersection. No one stopped but it takes a few days to see us out before they will. We are going back out there today! Friday a family of 3 generations stopped to pray for us! They said an awesome prayer and then Emil had a word for the mom which both she and the grandmother said was absolutely right on in every way. Ty, Lord, for their hearts of love and for giving back to the mom a healed heart!
