God downloaded to us His plans for a bigger vision for BWB. Read about it on our “Fundraising Meter” page and please consider giving to this project, the results of which will last for as many more years (infinity and beyond?) as BWB Ministries is around!!!
Monday we felt something had broken over us. There was a real shift in the atmosphere. We were praising God for it when we came over the hill, 5 miles from our home, and there in the sky was God’s distinct sign of agreement! TY, Lord!
We had a great time spending Thanksgiving Day with friends, and after dinner, a lady heavily involved in New Age began asking us about the ministry. As we talked to her, God began downloading words for her at an incredible pace. The woman wound up getting saved and filled with the Holy Spirit! Turns out it was an answer to prayer of all her family members who were there! She said she felt so different, for the first time in her life all her stress, anxiety and fear were gone!
Check out our new Colorado photos that we uploaded to the Photo Gallery this week! We didn’t have time to lighten some of them but we will do that this weekend!
Went to a restaurant yesterday with out-of-town company and our server had a knee brace on. He was limping and walking very painfully. The Lord said to me (Emil), “Ask him if you could have 30 seconds to pray for his knee so I can heal him.” I approached the guy and said, “I notice you have a knee brace on and you seem to be in a lot of pain. I know you’re really busy but if you give me 30 seconds, I’ll pray for you and the Lord will heal you.” He smacked me on the shoulder and said, “Let’s do it!” The Lord said, “His leg is shorter than the other. Grow it out!” I had him sit down and his leg was off by almost an inch. I prayed for him and it grew out! The guy said, “It feels great!” The rest of the time he was walking quickly back and forth and seemed to have no pain whatsoever. As we were leaving, he shook my hand and said, “Thank you so much!”
We got to pray for several people over the weekend! We all gather together for fire updates and also to see firsthand the fire which is about 5 miles from us. You get to see people at their lowest points! People ask us, “How do you know what to say? How do you know what to pray?” It’s easy–we are just praying what we ourselves are feeling and experiencing as we too are in this! Use what your experiences are at that moment and use it as a time to bless others. When you’re afraid, pray for others AS you too are afraid! Then you get to pray with experience!!
We will be emailing our newsletter later this evening which contains details from many of our roadside posts and a prayer and praise update. If you aren’t receiving our newsletter, please sign up for it on our Contact Us page!
For two days, the Lord told us we weren’t to go on the roadside. He reminded us that from the beginning of the ministry, He said he would protect and provide for us as long as we asked for and obeyed His daily instructions of where to be and at what time. This time He was protecting us by keeping us off the roadside, that there was someone who would stop that would not be good. TY, Father! Last night a young man came to the house to give us a bid on some work our insurance company is requiring. Emil had his Free Prayer shirt on and he had seen us on the roadside! Emil got to minister to him before he left!
We are grateful for the note we received from an annual donor yesterday, committing to $50/month and a check which made it retroactive! Thank You, Lord, for this couple’s faith in this ministry!
