Well- much has happened since we last wrote. I had a tooth that had been bothering me for some time- and after our Sunday meeting was over I decided to call a dentist to take a look at it.
He referred me to an oral surgeon, and a procedure was scheduled. I knew I "didn't feel right" that day, but I also know that I serve the Lord that Heals!
As I sat down in the chair for the procedure they said I lost consciousness. There was such a bad abscess in my tooth, it had spread into my blood stream. They were able to remove a lot of the infection, and I have a new 3 inch scar inside my mouth. But because my blood pressure wouldn't stay up and my heart rate was near 200, they said I was going into shock and decided to send me to the hospital. Pastor Kylie drove me (I don't do ambulances, lol) and they admitted me to do lots of tests and try to stop the infection before they said "it became unstoppable."
It didn't look like we were going to make this missionary trip to Europe, but I kept telling the doctors and nurses that my body was healing and I would be at the airport today! They just looked at me like I was out of my mind! But I was out of my mind- I was speaking from my Spirit! The tests showed that the infection had started to effect my throat and lungs but had not set up camp in my heart yet! (they did 3 echocardiograms to be sure.) Praise God!
After antibiotics & speaking the Word of God for 2 days, The light of God started to shine in me and on 5 South! (important reminder: this will work for you if you choose to really believe the Word with all of your heart and do not doubt. there is no place for "what if?" James 5 says a double-minded man is unstable in all of his ways. This definitely was not a time to be double-minded. I needed my body to stabilize!) I walked around the floor as much as I could, and prayed with nurses and the lady next to me who was scheduled for bypass surgery.
In the afternoon yesterday, they re-tested my blood and ultrasounds- and everything had started to return to normal! The infection had subsided in my body! I think the cardiologist, pulmonologist, and internal medicine doctors shocked themselves when they said I could go home in the evening! I wasn't suprised. In the wee hours of the morning at the hospital, when I was alone, I told the devil he could take those symptoms and run on down the road! My Jesus already took the sin and sickness of the world upon Himself on the cross. He died so that I would be healed spirit, soul and body. End of story.
So, here we are at the Chicago airport today- catching our flight to Brussels, Belgium. The fire of God and the miracles that have begun here in the US will continue and multiply overseas. This trip is a mandate from the Lord, and we will sound the alar for the awakening in every place we set our feet. The devil cannot abort this mission! Agree with us!
Brother Ron Smith and Pastors Bela and Christina were talking to me today and this was the word that came forth during prayer:
"Now you've doubled up. Now you'll have double. Satan is going to have to repay you double for your time. Yet, take the next 72 hours easy, rest your body and go slow. But after the 72 hours are up you will have double strength return to you as you minister.
There was a death warrant against you since Saturday- but it's been cancelled out in prayer. You are going to walk in a greater level then you have been to before and even greater than you have walked in when you and Kylie have been with your grandmother. You will return to these nations again and bigger fires will start.
But you are going into darker places, and that's why the strongman himself was sent against you to discourage you, then to destroy you- but you are stronger now, than you even were before. And you have absolutely taken him captive.
So now you will open your mouth an bring things up that are revelation words to the nations. And the greatest miracles will be ahead. You will have double the miracles, the increase, and the supply. Praise the Lord."
We love you all so much. Thank you for your prayers! Keep fueling the fire in America- see you in France tomorrow!
My nurse, Kaurus, saying goodbye as I left the hospital. I got her to say "Hallelujah" and raise one hand as I got out of the bed yesterday!
This is me at the Chicago airport. Going to do what God asked me to do. Any questions?
