I have to apologize for not keeping up with updated posts on my website. I really have no excuse for that. I am not a web administrator nor do I wish to be one. I don’t know how to do graphics, post videos or pictures, but we are praying for someone who would be willing to do that for us.
We have done very few meetings in the last year but believe me, we are an ongoing ministry and are still very active in helping the Body grow into maturity.
My wife Cathy broke her hip 6 months ago requiring a hip replacement. She has almost recovered fully and is able to travel now.
We were called to the Philippines and God asked us to move there. We have spent many months preparing for that move. Everything is set up over there for us, all we need to do is receive the finances to get there. We believe that God will give us the finances when it is time for us to go. Our hearts are already there, waiting to serve that nation in an apostolic capacity. We believe God wants to use us to help usher in revival to that nation. If you feel led by God to sow into our move, please donate online. We have been saving money for the move.
For the last year the Lord has asked us to basically step back from ministry, and to learn to more deeply, minister to Him in intimacy. We have been spending a great deal of time with Him, learning to die to self and fully surrender to Him. We believe He asked us to do this to prepare us for the Philippines and for what is ahead. We believe He is about to release us back into ministry again, although in a much deeper way than before.
Our hearts have always been to heal the Body, all the Body and to help them grow and mature, into His image. We believe there is no better way to help the Body, to become His beautiful Bride, than to teach them how to walk in intimacy with Holy Spirit. We believe all issues and problems could be solved in our personal lives and in our corporate lives if we learn this one simple truth, lay down your life, pick up your cross, and follow me, and die to all self.
I will commit to share with you over our website what God is doing in our lives, whether it be a meeting or what God has been saying to us personally. I will post teachings and comments.
We would like to invite all of you to partner with us in serving the Philippines with your prayers, financial support and resources. If you would like to volunteer with us in any capacity, please contact us and let us know what is in your heart.
We are looking for partners to join with us in monthly or one time donations so we can move to the Philippines, rent a house or apt. over there, and have our requirements met, so we can seek God’s face and minister full time to them.
As most of you know, there has been ongoing, devastating earthquakes, flooding, volcano activity and typhoons in the Philippines. The last big one displaced over 11 million people and where we are going, Dipolog City on the island of Mindanao, the poverty rate is 40%. You must also remember that their poverty is vastly different than American poverty.
We have been invited by Pastor Renado Avento of Christ the King church in Dipolog to come and teach and preach, doing an apostolic work all over the island and the nation. We will be feeding orphans and widows and demonstrating the gospel in power and love wherever the Lord takes us.
Please watch our video on what God has ordained for us in the Philippines. We were given many words in this video.
If you would like further information or would like to talk or need personal prayer, please contact us. Love Mark and Cathy
