Spring Forward with the Spirit!

In April I was privileged to minister for Pastor Walter Gomez at Nueva Imagen Community Church in Mission, TX.  It just happened to be his birthday, so the timing worked out great!  What a blessing!

Then I taught a prophetic training in San Benito, TX at The Hub with Pastor Pamela Neeley.   It was fun to be able to minister in English for a change!.

I taught on detecting the difference between the spirit of prophecy and the spirit of divination.  Host Pastor Pamela Neeley told me it was exactly what they needed and that they all learned and grew a lot.

In Pharr, Texas I ministered at New Hope Church with Pastors Omar and Yolanda Hinojosa.  Dianne joined me and sensed the same as I did that the enemy had stolen their identity and their hope.  So I ministered on renewed hope and our identity in Christ.   Pastor Omar was happy with the ministry and told me afterward that he felt like he got his life back!  Praise the Lord!

In Chetumal, Quintana Roo, I ministered for the national conference of the Open Bible Churches. This is a Pentecostal denomination which broke away from the Foursquare Church many years ago.  We also had a large delegation from Chiapas who brought their whole worship team!  I gave them an introduction to the prophetic movement and had to plow through some old mindsets.

The first night we had about 150 people come forward and received the baptism of the Holy Spirit.  The main pastors and leaders were very receptive to the teaching.  Vince McCarty, the international missions director for the Church of the Open Bible, was present,  and also seemed very pleased.  He and I had some good conversations during the breaks.

The pastors received more teaching as there were special sessions for them.  On Sunday morning I had a time of questions and answers before ministering to them.  I was able to prophesy to all the pastors and their families as well as a number of other people.   The regional leader, Pastor Rufino Alfaro of Chetumal, talked with me about the possibility of returning to do a  full prophetic training.

I had to stay an extra day since there were no flights out on Monday.  I had the joy of seeing a cenote and the beautiful Laguna de los Siete Colores (Lake of Seven Colors) in nearby Bacalar.

As always, your prayers and support are valued and appreciated!

Blessings!
