Lately I’ve felt that I needed to start this blog to keep everyone updated on what I’m doing these days. As many of you know, this year has been one of radical transformation in my life, but few know why or how this has happened. So for my first post I figured it would be appropriate to tell my…
Guys! One of my best friends has made a tumblr. Todd Mendez was a fellow student at Hillside and is one of the best guitarists I have ever met. He is such an example of what it looks like to love Jesus with reckless abandon. I am honored to call this man a brother. The above link is his story.
Not a lot of people know that I’m kind of going through a difficult period and that I am experiencing a lot of oppression, and persecution in a specific area of my life. During a conversation with one of these specific people, I was asked a question: “What happens when you fall out of love with God?” I chuckled and told this person that that was not an option. Let me explain…
We had a few days off for Thanksgiving after having an extremely successful neighborhood party for the Allison Hill area in Harrisburg. People from all walks of life and from different parts of the neighborhood came together in community and to be served by our crew. It was a huge honor and a blessing.
I arrived back in Pittsburgh expecting a full few days of trying to see as many people as I could. Wednesday night my fiance’ and I were invited to be a part of a Q&A at an old bible study we used to be a part of hosted by a woman whom I consider a spiritual mother. It was a huge honor to have been invited and to be able to sit on a panel with some of my closest friends.
We gave testimony to how we got to the places where we are now and practical tips on ‘staying strong in college’. But towards the end I felt that The Lord wanted to do something significant in the lives of the high school students we were in front of. So I began to prophesy and pray over specific students that The Lord had highlighted to me.
One young man stood out particularly to me. So I asked him if I could pray for him. He told me that he related to my story and was having a hard time. So I simply put into practice what I had been learning and helped him see that God was trying to speak to him and wanted to love him. What happened next was profound breakthrough for this young man. He was able to hear God speaking to him and it brought him to tears of joy. I remain unbelievably honored to have been able to partner with Jesus to help this young man see his true value and worth.
The rest of thanksgiving passed uneventful and full of rest. I was so happy to be able to see my friends and family seeing as how I leave the country for two months in 11 days!
Back In Harrisburg and What Happened Tonight (12/3/2013)
(DISCLAIMER: I feel like I need to give you one as a fair warning. The following story deals with the interacting with demons. They are real. I will try to explain as best as I can what happened, but as always if you have any questions, please feel free to ask. END DISCLAIMER)
I was delayed coming back to Harrisburg because I got sick. But when I finally arrived I found myself wishing I had never left. I had truly missed my new home and my new family. But once we were back, we dived right back into our studies.
But as some of you might know, we are living in a Howard Johnson Hotel (affectionately dubbed: HoJo’s) just down the hill from the church where we hold class. We’ve been living there for the past few months and have been able to interact with various people.
Recently a woman (L) had moved into our building because of some health circumstances. She was in a wheel chair when she came in. and after some of the students praying for her, her health has improved greatly. She is now using a walker!
And even more recently L’s husband, R, has been showing up. And there have been a few loud shouting matches. Tonight was no exception. I had heard in the hallway arguing and shouting and hearing R say some pretty nasty things. He was drunk, angry, and manifesting the demonic. I immediately began praying for him to either be encountered or to leave. He left.
Despite what you may have heard, Wi-Fi isn’t the best in the rooms, so I moved into the hall for better connection. While I was out, L came out of her room right as two other students were coming back from getting Sheetz. She was crying and talking about what had happend earlier. Right about then R came back, and manifested again, spewing vile words at L.
I had had enough. To be honest I wanted R gone. I couldn’t take him treating L that way, or anyone that way. To be honest, I wanted to call the cops. but after a discussion with 2 other students, we decided to be a little bold.
I ended up knocking on the door (with much fear and trembling. I really thought I was about to get punched. Seriously) And after I got R to open the door and talk to me, I started rebuking all of the demons with every ounce of authority in Jesus I had. When I did, R stopped manifesting. He stopped talking. And after a quick discussion and testimony, decided to accept Jesus into his heart.
I was blown away. I still am, if I’m being honest with myself. More students had come out at this point, and R agreed to let them pray over him too. He ended up saved, healed from back pain and healed from ankle pain.
So Why Can’t I Stop?
It’s because of people like the young man at the Q&A. Or men like R. God picked me out of a mess and put my feet on a rock. He saved my life. And it is because of his love for me, that I am compelled to tell others about his goodness and bring hope. I get to see men set free from a life of death. My purpose is not to rebuke demons and have all these crazy stories. It is to just bring light and love. That is why I do what I do. It is why I’ll never stop. God has revealed too much for me to believe anything else. There is nothing that could make me change my mind.
To The Nations
I mentioned that I leave in less than two weeks. I am still in need of wild intercessors and prayer warriors to commit to praying for me daily. If you would like to know specifically how to pray, please message me! I also am still fundraising and if you would like to partner with me and Jesus to see more people transformed like the young man and R encounter the Love of Christ, please message me! I would love for you to play a major role any way you could!
