“Life is moving faster than it ever has before!” I’m so grateful for the goodness of God in our lives! Here are some examples.
Pam and I were ministering in a church is Seattle. A woman came forward with weighty health issues and serious wrestling’s about suicide. We ministered deliverance in Jesus name and encouraged her deeply but saw no immediate change. Pam stayed in contact with her asking her to promise to call her daily until her mental state improved. Sunday Pam saw her in church. She was no longer a wretch under the gloom of depression and despondency. She was on the floor overcome with holy laughter! A very different person.
I was ministering in a church in Randle, WA. Many were waking to the reality that God wants to speak to them. A woman came forward for Prayer. She was elderly, slight and weighted down. As Pam began to pray she felt the compassion of Christ. She also felt the woman was in pain. Pam asked, “Are you in pain?” The woman put her hands over her abdomen and said, “How did you know?” As Pam began to pray the woman was physically shaken for a few moments. Then she was still and calm. She said, “The pain is gone!” She took the mic and testified to the congregation.
I’m teaching a class in Mossyrock, WA on “Hearing God’s Voice through Dreams and Visions.” The room was full on our first meeting! What most impressed Pam and I was the great hunger we felt among the people! There was wonderful interaction and attentiveness. Pam said, “I felt the Spirit so strong I could have prophesied to everyone in the room.”
A young woman we know here was working in a regional hospital. She was called to sit beside a 10-year-old boy who had been in a coma for a month. She took his hand and began to pray for him. She saw on his chart that he liked SpongeBob. She asked him to squeeze her hand once if he liked SpongeBob and twice if he didn’t. He squeezed her hand once!
She asked him other questions and he squeezed her hand appropriately. A nurse came in and she said, “He is responding to questions by squeezing my hand.” The nurse said he wasn’t, he just was having spasmodic reactions.
The doctor came in and she shared how the boy had squeezed her hand. He gave a similar response as the nurse. She told the doctor to take the boy’s hand and then she began to ask him questions. He responded with appropriate squeezing. The boy began to tear up. The doctor was amazed and said, this changes everything. We will have to cancel the surgery he is scheduled to have.
Sue sat a little longer with Tracy. The tears began flowing and he opened his eyes. Sarah had to leave. Our fresh report is that when Sue saw Tracy today he was awake, alert, joking and laughing. He is going to have a couple days of rehab and is going home! PTL!!!
We host a prayer meeting in our home every Monday, plus two Saturdays a month. The Spirit has so profoundly moved among us! Everyone senses the presence of God! How amazing to see the faith and courage rise! And we are asking for more of His glory, more for our town of Morton and for harvest in East Lewis county.
I have an early Wednesday morning men’s meeting on Zoom. It is phenomenal to see the sincere, earnest involvement of the men and their support for one another. The water table is rising!
Thursday nights I have a Zoom class on, “How to disciple – disciples.” Week by week you can see the enthusiasm rise as the lights come on. Each of us can be a discipling influence which can carry on through generations!
2 Tim 2:2 And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.
Now for a subject which grieves me and has made me shout out in prayer
I have come to call the HR 5 Bill “The Seduction of Minors Act.” Its potential damage imitates the elimination of prayer from our schools, and the Roe – Wade decision. The Church was asleep for those things. WE MUST NOT SLEEP NOW!!! The bill is now in the US Senate. Here is a letter I sent to my Senators. Please summon your compassion, resolve and care for our nation by writing your US Senators! HERE IS MY LETTER.
I have called HR 5 “The Seduction of Minors Act.”
I, and those within the circles of my influence, urge you, in the most emphatic way, to counter this act which preys on the vulnerability of children, warps the reality of created order, threatens the vulnerable and abolishes public opinion and free speech.
I will forgo detailing the arguments for my heart-felt convictions here. I will however include them for my blogging audience and my speaking engagements.
America is watching to see if you will protect our vulnerable children and ensure true equality for expression, religious freedom, the sanctity of human gender patently obvious to historic science, and the rights of parents to protect their children from malicious, seductive delusions.
Most earnestly, S C J

LET ME KNOW IF YOU WILL TAKE THE CHALLENGE AND WRITE YOUR SENATORS!
AN END THOUGHT: It is time to stop our fear of being shaken and become shakers!
