Unity work continues & Mr. Olympia in Vegas!

Thursday was a great day! In the morning, I met with various ministry leaders representing 6 major parts of the city to worship together. This may not sound that profound, but the purpose of these meetings is to begin "Altars of Worship" all around Los Angeles - meaning worship nights bringing all the churches in an area together to lift up the name of Jesus. How powerful will this be when God's people assemble together to worship?! Please pray for continued wisdom to know how to proceed with these events...

Then Thursday afternoon, the Hollywood pastors gathered together for prayer for the Hollywood area. We have now been meeting for over 2 years in prayer, and pastors are more connected than ever. But we must continue to press for greater unity. Please pray that even more pastors join us in prayer for this influential city...

Friday I was ministering on the movie set of Rough Hustle. It was a really good day...

This coming Wednesday through Sunday, Holly, myself and the entire Stronghold team will be heading to Las Vegas to minister at the Mr. Olympia bodybuilding and fitness contest. We are all excited, but we really need your prayers for favor and the power of Holy Spirit to move through us. We pray that many hearts are opened to Jesus and that lives are changed. May we have wisdom from God to speak only His words...thank you for your prayers!

Monica Brant FEM Camp...

Every year at about this time, fitness athlete Monica Brant and her friend Lynda Thoresen put on one of several FEM Camps for women who either desire to compete in the fitness industry or simply want to become more fit themselves. And every year, Monica and Lynda are kind enough to invite me to come and speak to all of the women about their faith in God. Psalm 139 mentions that all of us are fearfully and wonderfully made by God - knit together perfectly according to His will for us. We are a beautiful creation to Him, even though the world may say we aren't what we should be. However, to see ourselves as God sees us, we must have a personal relationship with Jesus. We must give our lives totally to the One who "knows all of our days before one of them comes to be." I pray that God spoke to these women's hearts and that they truly think about their relationship with God.

It's been a very busy week and kind of stressful. Please pray for strength to tackle the tasks that are ahead of us this week...thanks!

Prayers answered!!

Thank you all so much for your prayers for my leg. God totally healed it without the use of oral antibiotics! It was so amazing! I praise the Lord for his healing power.

It was an exciting week as one of the people I had been ministering to from a movie set I was on decided to accept Jesus as his Savior! Please pray that this individual is able to get plugged into a good church and grows in his faith. Being in the entertainment industry can be a difficult place to live as a young follower of Christ because so much spiritual attack can happen. May God protect him and bless him with strength and passion for Jesus!
