A Vision 2020 Perspective

I remember Pastor Rob talking with me in the early days as we were finding out what the Vision was. We were trusting God, that it was even possible, as we figured out the dynamics of raising money to win souls. We went to pastors meeting, after Pastors meeting, again and again, looking for like minded people to walk with us in this Vision, “We don’t need another program” some would say and others would tell Pastor Rob what an amazing idea it was then step back into the isolationist mentality that we have condoned in our church life.
We reached out to evangelist and other soul winners, and a few let us partner in their harvest, as they partnered in ours. Most allow us partner with them, but, to count only the souls that we were able to pay for, because, out of fear of offending others who had been a part of that harvest. Because of that, they felt like they were unable to partner with our Vision (i.e, so, if we were able to fund 1/3 of a crusade so we got to count 1/3rd of the souls saved). With that, we were just a purchasing agent, trying to find the highest yield for the money we had raised, the biggest bang for our buck, winning the mostest with the least-est amount of money. AND, It seemed fine over the years, as we believed and still do, that we will see large sums of money come into our hands to win large sums of souls for Christ. But, that anointed place of unity is more amazing, wholly holy and it is a powerhouse pulsing with life for the lost. God bless you Pastor,… Evangelist,… Apostle,… Teacher,… Prophet, who loves souls and saw that the synergy of working together, will indeed change the world! With every avenue available, let us be able to say (honestly… selah) that we will reach the lost at any cost.   -SF

Almost 95 Thousand People in 2016!

It has been a fun year in Heaven as the Angels rejoiced over almost 95 thousand people who repent of their sins and asked Jesus Christ to save them and to dwell in their hearts. This year I read this quote: “There are three stages to every great work of God; first it is impossible, then it is difficult, then it is done.”  – Hudson Taylor missionary to China. I know 95,000 in one year is wonderful! I also know that 1,418,338 souls (our current total) is a far cry from the 20 million that we are aiming for, but, first it is impossible, then it is difficult, then it is done. So we shout “To the Glory of the Father!!” and we run to win one more!

1,405,986!! headed towards 20 million!

The Power of Children’s Outreaches

All this makes me so excited for our next Children’s in-reach/outreach, December 2 – 4th. This outreach gives parents time to shop or wrap presents while our guest ministers come and share “Jesus, the Original Superman” with the precious children.  (So excited!!!)
