Dear Family and Friends,
As many of you are aware, Peter's retirement from the fire department is fastly approaching as the final months of 2019 flicker. Preparations are underway here at our home in Mt.Olive. It is a transition time into more ministry-related opportunities. Plus, we have substantial, directional decisions on the horizon. Please ask God to grant us wisdom and unity as these decisions are made.
Recently Peter traveled to Honduras as part of a ministry team at a There Is More Conference. While on the streets in between sessions, as Peter and a few others approached, this young girl began weeping. The interpreter discovered that the Holy Spirit was convicting her of rebellion toward her mother. Mother and daughter reconciliation occurred on the spot! God performed numerous healings, salvations, and deliverances throughout the three day conference on the streets, in between sessions, and on a one-day village outreach! His kingdom came!
Afterward accompanied by a local interpreter, he sojourned six hours over rugged, primitive roads into the gorgeous coffee and sugarcane-laden slopes of some Honduran villages where he literally experienced mountaintop moments like Elijah. On one particular occasion as an act of obedience, he stretched his hand up to the skies which had not surrendered rain in adequate quantities all year. The pastors from the mountain villages had paved the way for what happened next through extended fasting and prayer. Suddenly the winds swirled and clouds gathered over Peter as if drawn by a magnet and darkened with rain! Two hours of soaking showers followed. As I write this letter the area continues to receive daily rain!
An amazing honor has been bestowed upon Peter in the subsequent weeks. From among thousands of applications, he was selected as one of fifty eligible to attend a six-month evangelistic training boot camp at Christ For All Nations (CfaN), Reinhard Bonnke and Daniel Kolenda's ministry located in Orlando, FL. This begins January 22, 2020. Please click on logo below for additional information about CfaN, info on the Boot Camp & a ministry video.

Meanwhile, I am engaged in Hospitality duties for the YWAM Ascend base here in
Birmingham. This includes: attending to guests; furnishing, styling, and stocking the Hospitality apartment; ensuring all staff are welcomed and celebrated. Weekly both on and off the base I participate in intercession for unreached people groups overseas, as well as, revival in America and Alabama's specific role in igniting those fires.
Peter and I both are receiving training to assist with future DTS (Discipleship Training Schools) to equip, release, and support short and long-term workers on the mission field.There is a possibility that one or both of us would be traveling to Central Asia with January DTS students during the outreach phase in the Spring.
An ongoing local project which God revealed to us as a desire of His heart was a prayer house structure atop our mountain which is the highest point in the town of Brookside. This will function as a House of Prayer for all nations made available to YWAM (Youth With A Mission), Abba's House of Prayer, Appalachia prayer and revival leaders, The Gathering, and other various parts of the body of Christ that God draws. Salvaged, donated, and deeply discounted structural materials are on site awaiting the funds for the foundation.
Whew! We are so honored to have a part in the waves of revival, repentance, renewal, and reaping of the coming Great Harvest that is stirring in the earth fueled by the fires of intercession and in co-laboring with the Lord of the Harvest and Great Intercessor.
