We're very blessed - living in NZ, being part of a great church and a House of Prayer! Compared to where we used to live where the soil was very hard, it's like we've planted our kids in real good soil! And they're thriving.
And as they are getting blessed, so are we as parents!
A couple of days ago, Kylie came into the kitchen and told me that she'd just seen an angel in her bedroom. She was visibly shaken/touched and a little terrified (in a good way) - kept putting her hand over her mouth - she was in "awe".
I asked her what the angel said and she responded: "Don't be afraid" - Sound familiar?!
Not much has changed since Bible times, aye?!
Last night, we went to a meeting at THOP with Allen Hood from IHOP Kansas City. For lack of a babysitter (everybody wanted to go), we took Shayden and Kylie. And boy I am glad we did!
Kylie told us after the service, all excited: "God touched my heart tonight during worship! I was praying for my friend Julia (ear-ache) and she was praying for me (cough). And then he came and took away all the black in my heart and the emptiness. And it felt so good, and I cried."
By the way, both girls were well today! Praise God! What a blessing!
We've been praying for God to intervene in Kylie's life, as she's been struggling with a few issues over and over again (the ones that make your heart "black"). And we knew that only an encounter with Jesus would take care of them. We're SOOO thrilled!
And Shayden exclaimed last night as we left the building, with clear, loud words:
"GOD" ~ mumble mumble ~ "POWER" ~ mumble mumble ~ "MEANIES".
He kept saying "God" and "Power" over and over again! We were amazed, as he'd never even said the word power before. He must have had some kind of revelation too while he was mostly sleeping through the service.
Leilani's has had a couple of powerful prophetic words over her life.
Jeremie is thriving in his Discipleship Training School - soon going on outreach to Tahiti...
I LOVE what God's doing!!! Keep it up, God! We want MOOOORE - revelation - glory - presence - fire - LOVE!!!!
