As you know every school we have done, we have gotten an invitation to do the next one. Jody received an email that invited her to come to the Balkans in OCTOBER and do a prayer summit and talk about a school of prayer in Macedonia.
Knowing her schedule her immediate thought was HOW? Though she wanted to say no way she didn’t rule out the possibility the Lord was saying yes! but it seemed impossible. At the end of the School in Bogota, the Pastor had his wife come up and read a passage of Scripture over that they felt the Lord had given them for us. It is Romans 15:25 thru 16:4. It reads:
“but now I am going to send you to Jerusalem serving the saints. For Macedonia and Achaia have been pleased to make a contribution for the poor among the saints in Jerusalem. Yes they were pleased to do so, and they were indebted to them. For if the Gentiles have shared in their spiritual things, they are indebted to minister to them also in material things. Therefore, when I have finished this, and have put my seal on the fruit of theirs, I will go on by way of you to Spain. And I know that when I come to you, I will come in the fulness of the blessing of Christ. Now I urge you, brethren, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to strive together with me in your prayers to God for me, that I may be delivered from those who are disobedient in Judea, and that my service for Jerusalem may prove acceptable to the saints; so that I may come to you in joy, by the will of God and find refreshing rest in your company. Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen. I commend to you our sister Phoebe, who is a servant of the church which is in Cenchrea, that you receive her in the Lord in a manner worthy of the saints and that you help her in whatever matter she may have need of you; for she herself has also been a helper of many, and of myself as well. Greet Prisca and Aquila, my fellow-workers in Christ Jesus, who for my life risked their own necks to whom not only do I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles…
When she got to Verse 26 in 15 we all burst out in a shout and laughter. We actually had to stop the pastors wife to explain as she thought our outburst meant she did something wrong. ALL THIS TO SAY…God met us in Bogota and now we need CONCERTED prayer to see if Jody is to go to Macedonia Oct. 19-25. One MAJOR concern is that it will cost close to 1200. for a flight. Please pray with us as God leads to see if God wants Jody in Macedonia this October or if the timing is different.
We saw many people healed in the prayer room, I will let the gals debrief on that when we get home, but one young lady who as Gary Sander, the missionary down here, came in for prayer got multiple little girls healed today. She said to us afterward my husband and I have had very little over the past years, and a man came into our lives who gave my husband all the tools he needs to begin working again and we are now doing much better. We have been so blessed by this teaching these past days we have decided we want to invest a “seed” in your ministry. My husband won a National Award last year for his ART, and we want you to go to His website, choose a painting and we will send it to you so you can sell it and use the money to do what God calls you to. PLEASE choose one, we don’t care which one, or how large, we want you to choose.
You could have knocked us all over with a feather. Then Jody told her about the School of Art and the Auction to fund Abide. God definitely met us..we were overwhelmed, we had no words. It was like we labored and then God Himself paid us. Just amazing. Rejoice with us.
More later, going to go debrief with the team, love you all thanks for praying.
