What is God doing on our campus!

By | Field Worker Updates | No Comments

On the campuses and universities of America this day begins like every other day but ends in a life altering choice. What day is that? The National Collegiate Day of Prayer, which is the oldest organized prayer meeting in America, occurring on the last Thursday of every February since 1823.

Trickled throughout American history our colleges and universities have been continually blessed and transformed by significant seasons of spiritual awakening. Many of the early records of our most prestigious universities tell the tale of God’s desire to awaken, revive, and impact the next generation of world-changers. Read More

Jesus is Setting the Captives Free!

By | Field Worker Updates | No Comments

Over the week of the Super Bowl, we had the privilege of attending the Justice Rally in Houston, Texas to help lead outreaches with Elijah Rising (from Houston) and Exodus Cry (from Kansas City) to cantinas, Asian spas, strip clubs, on the streets, and online as we reached out to men purchasing women and women who were being sold online with the love of Jesus.

Sharing The Gospel With Ignorant Unbelievers

By | Field Worker Updates | No Comments

EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is the last in a five-part series about the characteristics of unbelief. Not everyone who declines to worship Jesus does so out of ignorance, but some do. When the Apostle Peter first proclaimed the Gospel in Jerusalem after Jesus’ ascension, he conceded that many of those responsible for Christ’s death “acted in ignorance.” How could Jesus’ contemporaries have been some oblivious to His identity?

Sharing The Gospel With Doubters And Skeptics

By | Field Worker Updates | No Comments

EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is the fourth in a five-part series about the characteristics of unbelief.

One of the most common kinds of non-Christian in the Western world are doubters/skeptics. This group of people generally hopes to square every facet of their belief system intellectually before forming firm convictions. We see a group of people trying to work through their skepticism in John’s Gospel when they said “Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How does he now say, ‘I have come down from heaven’?”1 Many of them are fearful of being misled by “religious people” and keep Christians at arm’s length. Read More

Change the Channel – The God Narrative

By | Field Worker Updates | No Comments

The world is such a dark and complex place. There are millions of evil actions that take place every day in the world.  Tune into any TV news channel or website and you will find that out quickly. All over the world it seems that the devil is having a field day. He can’t possibly be winning this much, right? It hurts your head and your heart to think that humans could traffic, well… humans! Impossible! Read More

Sharing The Gospel With Indifferent Hearers

By | Field Worker Updates | No Comments

EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is the third in a five-part series about the characteristics of unbelief.

One of the most surprising kinds of unbelief takes the form of indifference. Those who have this attitude don’t know if Jesus is who He claimed to be and say they don’t care either way.

The parable of the wedding feast provides a useful illustration of this mindset. It tells the story of a king (who represents God the Father) holding a celebration for his son (who represents Jesus) and sending his servants (who represent evangelists) to call those invited (who represent the unconverted). In the parable, some of those called “paid no attention and went off, one to his farm, another to his business.”1 The fact that they didn’t so much as pay attention shows their lack of concern about such a prestigious event.

Sharing The Gospel With Stubborn Hearers

By | Field Worker Updates | No Comments

EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is the second in a five-part series about the characteristics of unbelief

Anyone who regularly evangelizes will at some point encounter someone whose attitude toward Christ is stubborn unbelief. Jesus perfectly summarized this spiritual condition when He said to one group, “Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word.”Jesus is more than happy to grant divine understanding to those who are open to being persuaded. Some people are simply unwilling to humble themselves and consider the possibility that the Gospel is the key to understanding all of life and existence. Read More

Through Two Lenses

By | Field Worker Updates | No Comments

I often find myself caught between two equally real, yet equally incomplete mindsets. For most of my adult life I have served either as a photographer or social worker. As an artist I see beauty in the broken, estranged and transitional aspects of life. Art is found to be great partially due to how raw and honest it is. A photo conveys a story; and stories are marked by both trauma and hope. The tension that lies between the two is what holds the image together. It connects the beginning to the end, while maintaining a sense of mystery and grandeur in it’s unsettled state. Tragedy is what makes victory so sweet. Without obstacles God would not need to call us over comers. Scars are what remind us to live in grace. They remind us we need grace. These raw human defects display a race of clay, not plastic. They testify to the perfection of a delicately balanced dance of contradictions. Read More

Testimony by Merita Qelemeni

At our church, House Of Prayer, one of our more significant ministries is Visitation. Merita, Xheke (pr. Jaka), and sometimes, Vitore (similar to Victoria), and Flutera (means butterfly) quite often visit families in our area, as well as other areas that are mostly very poor, where there is much violence, alcohol, and drugs. Whatever you can imagine as the conditions, it is probably worse.

One of the most powerful recent visits was to a family where the husband drank a lot and was also violent toward his wife, Lina, beating her among other things. On their first visit Merita and Xheke were able to pray for Lina, that God would heal her wounded spirit and to receive Jesus as her savior! They also invited her to come to church. The husband would not allow her to attend church.

On their second visit, they were praying again when the husband came home drunk. The ladies were a little scared because they heard he was a violent man and a difficult person. Merita asked him if they could pray for him and he started to cry and said yes. When they finished praying for him he was calm. He has quit drinking, and now treats his wife with much more love and respect.

Another day Merita and Xheke returned to this family’s home to disciple Lina. The police came to the door, which isn’t usually a good thing, to speak to their son who is involved in some small business. The family was frightened. What could be the trouble!? Merita felt peace about the situation and told them not to worry God is in control. When the son returned home and found out he went directly to the police station. It turned out they wanted to ask him a question about his business from two years ago. Nothing to worry about!

After this Divine intervention in their lives Lina and her daughter want to come to church and her husband has given her permission. Praise God!!!!!
