The timing of our move was perfect. Even though we were frustrated after two buyers backed out. This third time was God's time. We had prayed for years that God would bring the right family to our farm. And because He is faithful, He did. This new family has blended into the church and community perfectly. Even the timing of us leaving was perfect.
We stopped in at the Birkenfeld church for their once a month community lunch to say our goodbyes.

After lunch we headed to Portland for a family gathering on Daniels side.

Heading to La Pine, OR
Timing #1. As we crossed out of Oregon into the Nevada desert we were behind a women who drifted into the on coming traffic of an 18 wheeler! They hit right bumper to right bumper which sent her little SUV flying and tumbling through the air into the desert. We were first responders and were able to pray with her and be there with her until the police came. She was okay!

Timing #2 My daughter Tamara, her husband Danny and their two kids were in the middle of moving into a new home with land in Las Vegas, so we had room to set up our trailer. Their place also had a well and septic system. We had experience with these and were able to be there when some BIG issues came up....like tree roots in the septic line going to the house! Us being there to help them move in, start some remodeling and to get the water and septic all working right saved them tons of money. We stayed at their place for 3 weeks and also had time with my son Daniel and my friend Kate and very long time friends Mark and Melody.

Timing #3 From Las Vegas we headed to Kingman to see my sister, Victoria for one night. She had a friend that had just found out that he had throat cancer. We laid hands on him and spoke healing and life to his body. We found out a few weeks later, no cancer!

It took us about 4 days to get from Kingman AZ to Austin TX where my daughter Natasha and her husband Kyle and their 3 year old son lived. We had a good fun visit with them.

We made it to Wylie, Texas on Friday April 20, 2018. The mobile home/RV park was holding two spots for us, so we could choose the one we wanted.

We were at our new church on Sunday and met others that had also just moved here. One week later was the John G. Lake's "Mind Renewal" Conference with people from all over the world. What an awesome way to kickstart all our training! (JGLM.org)
|Dominion Bible School inside our trailer.|
Within two weeks Daniel was signed up with Dominion Bible Institute, year 1. I had already done year one back in 2014. So I will review with him and then we will go through year 2 together.
We also joined a Life Team (small group training)The focus right now is on sharing the gospel with people. Believe it or not, I never really truly learned how to witness to people. Now it just flows out when I start talking with people. AND people are responding! A neighbor down the street told us about his 80+ year old brother-in-law, John, who was in a care facility who wanted to go to Portland Oregon so he could have assisted suicide. We went over to meet John and share God's love with him and to pray for his body. He received much pain relief and wanted us to come back again. So we did, with more prayer and God's love. We left him a New Testament this time and by our 3rd visit he had read 116 pages and was ready to accept Jesus as savior and Lord!
|Dallas view from Hospital|
On Fridays a group from church drive into Dallas to a public, county hospital to minister. Everyone breaks up into groups of 2 or 3. Daniel and I have been going together. We walk around outside and minister to people as they sit in the sunshine. Then we ride the elevators up and down and meet people coming to see family or friends. Many invite us to come pray in the rooms. Since mid May Daniel and I have seen the Holy Spirit remove more then 24 people's pain! God is Faithful! This is for all believers in Christ, we just have to know who the Bible says were are, and believe and do. Be Know Do!
Following is a testimony we shared at church--
At Parkland Hospital, in Dallas we met a 23 year old woman in the elevator that was in a wheel chair . She said she had neuropathy in her hands and feet. (numbness and pain) She was on her way to visit her mother. We started ministering and her pain was getting less. We followed her to her mothers room to finish ministering to her, after commanding her body about 5-6 times all numbness and pain left, I took her hands and got her out of her wheelchair and walked her around the room, she had not been able to walk for 6 months! We purposely finished healing her before starting on her mom. We wanted to build her mothers faith.(not needed but nice to have) Her mother also had numbness in her hands and very bad pain and numbness in feet. So bad was her pain that when her daughter touch her foot she yelled! We commanded healing and that all pain leave her body and again after about 5-6 commands all pain and numbness was GONE! I had her daughter squeeze her feet. NO PAIN! We then spent time sharing the gospel with them and teaching them how to speak life to their bodies. (Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.)
The intensive training and being around like minded people has produced incredible results! We still have more renewing of our minds and dying to self yet to do. Jesus healed all, and we have lost a few. Not a good feeling. "The harvest is ready; the harvester (Holy Spirit) is ready. We are responsible to release Him!" "The Spirit that is in me is the one that has healed EVERY sick person...EVER!" Based on Romans 8:11.
We serve a Faithful God! His Word is true and what the Bible says that we can do, or commands us to do, CAN be done by us! ALL OF US...Jesus would not command us to do something that He had not made a way for.... If it requires God's assistance or power, it is expected that His power (Holy Spirit) will be available when required.
So here we are, living in a 24 ft. trailer, that's under 200 sq feet. Not much space by most people's standards. But, I really like it. I had always wanted to live in a small house, although I wasn't thinking of a trailer, I was thinking more like a rock or log cabin in the woods, not a RV park.
|Paradise on Earth? No, hard work!|
There is no greater joy then being with someone who is being healed and touched by the power of the Holy Spirit! Romans 10:15 As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the Gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!”
