Sorry for the lack of updates. There has actually been a lot going on. Lots of travel, lots of equipping, tons of miracles and a whole bunch of salvations! It’s official; it doesn’t matter where we go, if we preach the Gospel of the Kingdom, miracles, healings and salvations break out!
Several years ago, the Lord started speaking to us about
So we began investing in
I was with a team down there and we had a gentleman with us from a local Baptist church down there. Officially, the church’s doctrine is that the age of miracles has passed away with the death of the Apostles and the giving of the Scripture. That may be so, but the gentleman with me witnessed a NOW demonstration of the power of God as a guy we were preaching to went from having a heart that was stone cold to the Gospel to a heart that was tender, down on his knees, weeping and giving his life to Jesus, and in a matter of a few minutes! He was relating to his pastor at a lunch after the outreach that maybe we really had something that could aid soul winning!
The format was simple; teach on the Kingdom, get people free from bondage and filled with the power of God and set them loose on their community to preach the gospel with signs and wonders. There was a good group from the church that came out, a lot of young people and a few young couples, eager to hear from God and do something with it! The only “hiccup” is that we were in Everyone was eager to practice what they had been taught and maybe a little nervous, but off we went. Would you believe it, the Gospel even works in

Last year, while in
Milledgeville was off the hook! The group of young people there was so hungry and full of fire. The results were predictable, God showed up.
One of my favorite stories was of an older woman whose house a team had entered. As they were talking with a family member at the front of the house, one in the group got a word of knowledge about arthritis in the hands. As it turns out, an older lady in the house was experiencing arthritis pain at that moment. As they prayed for her, not only did all the pain leave her body instantly and mobility was restored, but gold dust appeared on her hands as they prayed. Everyone was freaked out at that one!
Here are some comments on the weekend from John Minix, our main contact down there:
On Saturday morning, over forty people gathered to prepare to invade the projects. (Editors Note: actually, it was 56, I counted) Ryan taught out of Matthew 10:7,8 on healing the sick, raising the dead, cleansing the leper, and casting out demons and includes many personal and practical examples. Then David Dixon taught about prophetic evangelism while also including numerous personal examples. After a time of soaking, 12 groups are formed and literally swarm two housing projects and a small community. After an hour of preaching the gospel, people begin to return with so much enthusiasm and so many testimonies that many of the people can hardly contain everything that God had done.
There were a total of 12 salvations, and 10 instant healings. One healing was a report from someone prayed for a week earlier that was healed of diabetes. The other healings were ranged from arthritis to back pain to a healing of an ingrown toe nail. There was one lady that experienced gold dust. The word of knowledge was flowing freely through many people that had little to no experience what so ever in operating in that gift.Since then, on Sunday, numerous students prophecy over their waiters and waitresses and a couple of students were involved with giving words of knowledge to three goth kids in a Wal-Mart parking lot and leading one through deliverance from demonic oppression. Monday, one student ministered to a homeless man in
Praise GOD!!! All Glory To JESUS!!!
More to come, we’re off to the
