teaching and ministry into rejection another person in the
church wrote to us saying..
"I just want to express my gratitude
for the teaching over the last few months and in particular
for the ministry into my life two weeks ago. It has made a
huge difference to me. I had no idea that rejection was the
underlying issue but as you spoke I knew that the words were
really affecting me.. I am so glad that I stayed behind. I
felt so safe and secure as you prayed. I was a little
reluctant to repeat some of the words but decided I had to
trust you and the Holy Spirit. I was aware of the Holy
Spirit ministering and it all happened without a struggle. I
knew it was going to make a difference in my life but the
extent was highlighted for me today when I met a friend for
lunch. As she talked about issues in her life I realised
just how far I have moved emotionally since receiving
ministry. My mindsets and thinking patterns have been
completely changed. Thank you once again for the great work
you do. Thank you Lord from the bottom of my heart.
At the end of June we had a group of
ladies from Dublin attend a Father heart of God course at the
Christian Renewal centre at Rostrevor. All of the ladies are
related in one way or another to the 'lads' who have been coming
to us in recent times from drug addiction backgrounds. We had
mums, step mums, wives, fiancées and girl friends. All were
touched deeply by Jesus during the weekend and three received
salvation. All others attending were already Christian.
At the beginning of July we took a strong
team down to 'God's Garage' in County Tipperary where I taught
on reconciliation on Friday evening and rejection on Saturday
morning - with ministry after both teachings. Saturday afternoon
was left for ministry appointments with the team members plus a
further training session for around one dozen people in the CRi
Prayer Ministry School. We are always keen to build up a prayer
ministry team at any centre we regularly visit so that they can
be 'self sufficient' in this area in due time.
We will be doing the same
at Green pastures over the summer when two of our most experienced prayer
ministry team members will be running a weekly Saturday morning school for nearly
two dozen selected church members.
Prayer ministry to individuals continues
week in and week out and we are so very grateful to God for the
evidence of lives changed. One girl (a prodigal daughter!) wrote
"..words cannot express what, through
God, you have done for me. You brought me through a
difficult spiritual war that was happening in me with your
words of total encouragement and truth.. I now feel I can
face anything 'through God who strengthens me' My mum
and whole family have seen a major change in me and would
also like to thank you for making their lives better as
I have just returned from teaching at Ellel Pierrepont,
As well as teaching The Father
heart of God and Kingdom Business to NETS students, I
shared my testimony of God's healing in my life to
around 150 staff and students at the early Friday
morning communion, and later shared with the
students what God was graciously doing in Ireland through this ministry.

Along with some prayer
ministry to individuals the main thrust for the remainder of
July is to prepare teaching material for our August visit to Australia.
God is good!
