On Wednesday, I had the chance to go down to Perkins and visit my friends and colleagues. It was a lot of fun. It was good to see everyone again. They were all so supportive. I was surprised at the warm welcome I received. Everyone encouraged me to never come back and to continue pursuing my dreams. I didn’t have enough time to visit everyone, so I am hoping to go back and see everyone later this week or next.
On Saturday, the entire day was spent celebrating my nephew Prithu’s graduation. The day started out with a fancy lunch at the Georgian Room of the Fairmont Olympic Hotel. We had the chef’s special pasta dishes. Yumm.
Then, we went to Paint the Town, a crafts store in the University District. There we all did a family art project. We painted some flower pots that then were going to be glazed. After the initial confusion about what to paint, it was a lot of fun.
In the evening we came home and watch two movies. The day did not end until after 11 PM. It was a fun day.
On Sunday we conducted two services at Jubilee Evangelical Church. The first service was at their Eastside branch and the second at their Westside branch. I shared a message on “Go Ye.” I encouraged people to step out of their comfort zones and into the mission field with boldness. Unlike after the power message, when we see a lot of people being slain in the Spirit, after this message, I got a lot of prophesies for people. One of the things I love about Jubilee is that no one is in a rush. We prayed until about midnight. People just stood in line waiting for their turn for prayer.
We prayed for so many hours that I cannot even begin to describe everything, but here are a few of the highlights:
In the morning service, a little girl, Ashley, came forward to receive the Holy Spirit. The power of God was so strong on her, she was shaking under the power. It was amazing. Another lady was filled with the Holy Spirit and began to cry as she received the gift she thought she had lost. Another young mother had me pray that she would begin making the time to live up to the calling of God on her life.
In the evening service, one young girl was set free as I told her it was okay if she was not yet ready to minister to her hostile classmates, but instead wanted to start by ministering to “softer” targets. Others began to tear up as God spoke to them. One girl felt a pain she had had since childhood instantly disappear with prayer.
Scripture for the Day:
If you abide in me and my words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. John 15:7
