I just finished a wonderful night with Mark Chironna here in Orlando, Florida. It was my first time to be with him. I remember when I first saw Mark minister. It was on TBN. When I heard him speak, I stopped what I was doing. It was obvious to me – this man knew God . . . this man heard from God. It was more than his ability to minister the word. That is always important. It was bigger than that. He carried Jesus with him. He served out of the person of Jesus. It’s hard to explain, but I was deeply impacted, and have been looking forward to connecting with him. Tonight was that night. Yeah God. God was good, with good anointing on the word, and great breakthrough in healing throughout the ministry time. We are working on a repeat visit – next time perhaps 3 days or so.
My wife and team (Mary & Judy) leave for England on Saturday. Beni had upgrades (which are really important, if you spend much time in the air) that expire Saturday. That meant they had to leave a day earlier than usual to take advantage of United’s gift to us for flying so much We go from there to Dubai, which will be a first. We’re all a bit excited for that one. I leave Sunday. (just my personal team flies about 640,000 miles a year – including my 220,000 miles. That doesn’t include the many other staff members who fly MUCH! Say this with me – private jet!! :-)
I know that many of you pray for us. While I don’t send out notices to ask for prayer, nor do I lay out the vision for the next season so you’ll pray, I really, really appreciate your loving support in prayer. Years ago I was facing the greatest trial of my life. A dear friend of mine came to me, who knew of the “betrayal” I was facing, and said to me, “you can stand on my prayers!” That was 1973. I’ll never forget it. It was like money in the bank. I was able to write check of “personal strength” out of his deposit. I don’t know that I’ve ever received as great a gift in my entire life. He’s in heaven now. I look forward to embracing him again and repeating this word, thanks!
Thank you for your interest in the Kingdom. Thanks for your prayer support . . . a million times, thanks.
