Such a Time As This

Standard

I received some bad news today regarding Charles in Uganda.
Charles is a 15 year old boy whom I met in February this year, 2017, while there on a mission trip.   

Though there were thousands of people present who we prayed with, helped, and ministered to- when Charles approached me asking for me to pray for him, something happened.  
The Holy Spirit deposited this message into my spirit, “He is why you are here.”
Instantly, God-bumps arose all up and down my arms, an an instant Word of knowledge came to me by the Spirit.
Charles needed our help- and I was the vessel to get him connected to the help he needed.
Charles was diagnosed with a rare cancer at the early age of 9. 

His loving parents spent all they had to get him the care he needed, which included radiation, chemotherapy, and when that didn’t stop the aggressive cancer, surgery to remove the tumor on his right eye.

Sadly, the family ran out of funds… and the returned surgery planned for 6 weeks later never occurred in 2012…so this young boy had an open wound in the area where his eye used to be… getting infected…
When I met him this February, the eye was covered by gauze, and tape, but it was unclean.  When he asked me to pray for him, he apologized for the odor and pointed to his eye.  

He explained what I just shared, and asked if I would pray for him to be healed.  The odor was quite foul.
Yes.  
I laid hands on him, and prayed for his healing.  I prayed for his provision.  

I found out he had to drop out of school, since all the funds were being used for medical.  I found out he had a large family of brothers, and two young sisters.  I found out he had a dream.
But, like most 15 year olds, he had given up on his dream of becoming a doctor, because he had given up all hope of living through the cancer.
Without funds, there would be no treatment.
Without treatment, the cancer would continue spreading, and would eventually take his life.
So we said no to Satan, the spirit behind the sickness that bound him, and called him healed by the blood of Jesus.
I led him to the director, and first got him to wound care to treat the infected area, and then obtained permission to personally assist him. (Necessary when on a mission trip with an organization other than your own.)


We were able to go with him to meet his family at his homestead village in the bush.  


I was able to hold his hand, and watch hope come back to his countenance, with a smile from ear to ear.

I told him how God loved him so much and saw his struggles, and sent me from America to Uganda for such a time as this.  
I told him we would do all we could to help him get the eye surgery necessary so he could return to school.  I said ” hmmmm. Dr Charles…. that sounds good!”  
So a plan was arranged with the local doctor and pastor, funds were given to have Charles and his parents sent to hospital and to provide for food, transportation and lodging, and medical testing.
This all began on 2/24/17.  His initial biopsy showed him to be cancer free!  We were so happy! 
But then other symptoms began to appear… and his short term hospital stay has now grown into 5 months… and more bad news…
The cancer has returned and he will need to begin aggressive chemotherapy again on this coming Tuesday.
My husband and I had been covering the ongoing expenses each month out of pocket, and reached out to others through speaking engagements Churches 4 Africa: Planting Seeds 4 Love, through our newly formed non profit, iamjesusgal ministries.
The initial funds received specifically for Charles has long since been sent. Much more is needed.  
How can you help?
First and foremost, pray.  Prayers of faith for his complete healing are vitally important while we wait for these symptoms he’s experiencing to line up with God’s Word.  Prayers for finances to come are also needed.
****In order for Charles to receive treatment and ongoing medical care, we are asking if able, please make a contribution on our website, Iamjesusgal ministries, and in the comments state ‘Charles medical care-Uganda’.*****
The Christian Doctor, whom I personally know there in Uganda, is working hand in hand with his cancer doctors providing his care as long as funds continue.  She is reporting back to me his specific needs, and giving an account of each dollar given.
Currently they are in need of $500 US dollars very quickly., to ensure he receives necessary medical care.
I’m saddened by this news., but hopeful for his prognosis based on GOD’S report! 
Thank you to all who have helped thus far.  Thank you for reading this, and I hope, thank you for sharing this… and more, I hope, thank you for prayerfully making a contribution to help Charles live and not die.
“I will live and not die, and shall proclaim the deeds of the Lord.”

Psalm 119:17

Gabriella’s Prayer 

Standard


Introducing to you a “prayer mission@ challenge…
 “Gabriella’s Prayer”
This precious young girl, Gabriella, only 10 years old- has a heart of gold.
She heard about our mission trip to Uganda, heard about the 15 year old boy named Charles who has been fighting a rare cancer in his eye and brain whom iamjesusgal ministries is funding his medical care-


She heard about the struggles his family has to find food and efforts to find water by walking hours carrying plastic jugs, returning with dirty water…

she heard about his little sisters fighting malnutrition and parasites…


And so Gabriella decided to do something about it!!!
She raised on her own $32… and donated it to us today.
Her prayer is that God will multiply this $32 so that we can present Charles and his family with a BRAND NEW WELL!!!

A water well in the poorest part of Uganda saves lives.

Thus, we launch “Gabriella’s Prayer!”
We are asking you to match her donation by going to our website, 
 Iamjesusgal ministries website
and click on ‘donate now! In comments, please put ‘Gabriella’s Prayer’ for Charles water well!
Then-
Please share this, add hashtag #Gabriellasprayer and join us in faith and watch God do it!!!
By providing this for Charles and his family, the entire village benefits!

Flash Flood of souls 

Standard


I was reading Evangelism by Fire  by Reinhard Bonnke, and literally found myself scorched by the fire of the words I was reading.

Before I could breathe my next breath I found myself exploding with thoughts and urgency to get back on the mission field again, while preparing to head into my office for another work day.

I find myself jealous of the time spent  in the Word of God, hungry for more and more of Him…   it’s difficult to pull myself away from my prayer room and the glory of God’s saturating presence, so that I can go to work…

The time spent in Word and study is sacred to me…

When I read this:

The gospel is not good news to people who do not hear it- an unpreached Gospel is no gospel at all.   (reinhard bonnke )
My soul reasonated.   YES!    How can they hear if we don’t go?

Nations urgently need the life-giving message of the cross now, not when it’s convenient.

‘If the Crucified One is to ‘see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied,’ as Isaiah 53:11 states, dare we think in smaller terms? Would He be satisfied with anything less?”

The whole earth is full of His glory (Isaiah 6:3) and the knowledge of His glory, power, and salvation will be spread across the world like a flashflood reaching every people-group and every nation, tribe and tongue

The great commission is about GOING.

‘The church is a lifeboat, not a pleasure boat.’ (Bonnke )

The ‘church’ that does not seek the lost is ‘lost’ itself.  (Bonnke)

The word ‘seek’ doesn’t imply wait in your seat and hope someone comes.

It suggests action.

Means to go after, search for , sought out, find that which is lost.

If we got serious about seeking the lost like we would search for a missing $100 bill, we would find treasures stored up in heaven so rich we could not count its value.

I am hungry for revival …

I am at the precipice of a mighty move of God that will flood with souls …

I see with eyes of faith a vision of homeless people finding Christ, and eternal homes secured in Heaven.
I see also a flood of thirsty people coming for living water that we will give them that will satisfy their thirsty souls-

A revival of millions.

October 15, 2016, at 9:30am, The Holy Spirit gave me this vision which is noted in my digital journal. I’ve shared with a select few then, but He told me it’s time to share with the world, as a prophesy that shall come to pass.

Here is what He showed me:
I have this vision. I see it crystal clear.


There’s a gathering. It’s building and more and more are coming.


We are assembled together.


We are at a place that is wide open fields as far as the eye can see, flooded with people.



In the fields and in the back fields surrounding the parking lots and building. Tents are coming up. All together in unity.  



Flashlights- multiple ones at different battery levels.. Some extinguished some very dim and some extremely bright.



Batteries…. Exchange the dead ones, recharge those rechargeable, and turn them on bright!



Holy Spirit Fire!



Camp Restoration.



Tents. Campfires. Acoustic Christian music spreading from fire to fire.



People and families coming from far and wide joining in as a Holy Fire Revival explodes and the Spirit breaks out!!! 



One day of camp shall turn into two.



 Two days of camp shall turn into three. 



 The Spirit of prayer will overflow, and the flow will increase.




God called me there to Preach.



To  preach the gospel.   To speak of the blood of the lamb.  To share our testimony.  




Their is a power present.  



The power of salvation. 



The message of revival. 




The message of restoration.



Pray in the Spirit and watch His glory fall!


A call will go out into our land!!! 



People who are in need of healing will come. 



 The healing power of God will be present! 



 Miracles signs and wonders will take place in the Name of Jesus!!!



 Blind WILL see! Deaf WILL hear! The lame WILL walk! The broken WILL be restored!!!!


Restoration and Saturation will happen. 



We the people who are called in Your Name shall humble ourselves and shall turn from our wicked ways, and pray. 



 Revival is here!!! 



 Restoration is here! 



 Holy Spirit is here!

Her smile was worth waiting for…

Standard

Doesn’t matter how many times I see pictures like this… my heart stirs every time with love for the incredible people of Africa, and longing to be back… and soon I will be back! I return this year, the end of August.

My ❤ is for Africa … and her smile was worth waiting for..  Her name is Malaika, or, ‘Angel’ in English.  She was ‘dirt poor’ but ‘heart rich.’   Her tummy wasn’t full of food, but her heart was full of love.  Her stick & mud hut with a thatch roof wasn’t full of toys, but it was full of joy.  One thing that I’ve witnessed about these precious people, they have a deep sense of family bonding, and community.

Malaika is only 9 years old, but she was a ‘mother’ to this little one on her back.  She was devoted to the care of her brother, and did a great job of it.

While I was in Gulu, Uganda February 2017, with the Joyce Meyer’s Ministries “Hand of Hope”, she caught my eye.  Primarily because the first few times I was drawn to her, she kept her distance, and did NOT smile, not even a hint.  Several days there, she’d come by the ministry tent I was serving in, and hover around, listening.  I always smiled at her, hoping to engage her.

Finally, on the third day, she was still there, (a local whose family lived in the bush in neighboring village), when I had my camera in hand, she paused.  I held the camera out to her, saying ‘kamera?  Picha?’  Which in English is, Camera, Picture. Or Photo.   So, she nodded her head, stopped and posed.

But didn’t smile.  Not at first.  Like the previous days, she just starred at me.  (Later I was told by my interpreter that I was the first ‘white’ person she’s ever seen.) So, I made a face back at her, similar to the expression she had on hers, which is just like the one of her baby brother on her back’s face, and then stuck out my tongue, and laughed…and that’s when she smiled at me!

She followed me over to the ministry tent, cause I asked her if she wanted a ‘treat.’   While there, I had my interpreter help me in finding out if she had received Jesus as her Lord and Savior, and she hadn’t.  Praise God!  She was open, and since she had heard me preach the gospel multiple times before, and because she heard me sharing my testimony many times before, she was ready.  Faith came to her in the hearing of the Word!  (Romans 10:17 ‘Now, faith comes by hearing, and hearing of the Word of God.’ I enjoyed thoroughly praying with her after taking her picture,  and then was successful in leading her to Jesus!!!   Oh, how I enjoyed that!  That, and giving her sweets …though Jesus is the sweetest sweet ever!

I can’t tell you all enough how THANKFUL I am to you all who support our ministries, because without your help, people like Malaika may never get to hear the gospel, or have opportunity to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior!    THANK YOU for helping to send me to Gulu, Uganda!  THANK YOU for your faithful prayers!  THANK YOU for your caring and partnering with us!  YOU MATTER!  Your support matters!  Thank you so much!

 

Love,

 

Wendy
