What a time we are living in. While it is so easy to be distracted by the politics and violence in the world, the Kingdom continues to powerfully increase. Both the Old and New Testament tell us that there will be a great acceleration of Kingdom activity; clearly, to all those with eyes to see, we are in such a time. As the prophet of justice, Amos, wrote about 2700 years ago:  Read More

To kick the journey off, the team took a scenic and adventurous 1.5 hour ferry ride up river to a small barangay of 64 houses. They were the first westerners to visit in over a year. Lots of healings of pain, fevers and eye problems, as well as salvations took place as the team went door to door distributing rice and water filters and praying for the needs of the people.  An outdoor meeting followed with nearly every person (about 100) accepting Jesus! Steve reports of a man born hearing impaired who was totally healed (including his blurry vision) without even receiving prayer. He ran to get his mostly blind father who was also totally healed!   Read More

Checkout the Latest: First Reports from the Philippines Journey

As we prepare to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and His resurrection life and power in us, I am reminded of this testimony from last year’s Philippines Journey of Compassion. We were in our final barangay, giving out bags of rice and distributing water filters among the village that had been ravaged by two different typhoons. As we came to the door of one house, we could see a woman trying to come to us. She was barely moving, hobbling as she leaned heavily on the furniture. We told her not to come any farther, we would just come in ourselves. Before giving her a filter, it seemed obvious that we should pray for this poor woman. Ray asked her where she felt pain. She replied with a long list––her head, neck, back, hips, knees and feet. So Ray decided to start with her head pain. As she prayed, the woman began to smile and indicate with her hands that she felt something lifting off her. Then suddenly, she jumped up from the stool, raised her hands over her head and began to dance. I mean dance! All over the room she moved and kept saying it was all gone. We asked if she meant her head pain was gone. “No! All my pain is gone from everywhere!”  Read More

Yesterday the team headed to a new village, Kantegalamire. It is a very interesting place, indeed. Although it is less than 10 miles from Kalonga, this village of 5,000 is remarkably isolated; in fact it feels like it’s a hundred miles away. I was surprised to discover that the people speak a different language from those in the surrounding towns and villages. This is because Kantegalamire was populated by a nomadic tribe a number of years ago. We found out that we are the first “musungus” (white people) to come in 15 years. The medical clinic that we set up yesterday was the first ever in this community. When we arrived, there was a large crowd waiting outside. Once again, the doctors and nurses reported that they encountered a lot of very sick people. Like the last village and Sango Bay, this has been a very bad year for malaria. There were also many serious stomach problems. While the nurses and doctors saw patients for hour after hour, the prayer team prayed for hundreds Read More
