About thirteen and half years ago a dear friend of mine began frequently using the nickname "nations" for me. He had a prophetic understanding that I was a man destined to have ministry to the nations of the earth. At the time he began using this nickname, I had yet to ever have a ministry invitation outside of the United States. My friend saw me as God saw me and saw what at times I could not see about myself. In 2010, another dear friend of mine told me I had a call to the nations of the earth and he wanted to help facilitate that call. He invited me to minister at his missions training schools in three different countries. These two dear friends played a pivotal role in helping me step into a significant aspect of my destiny.
By the time you receive this letter, I will have ministered for the first time in the nation of Iceland. Iceland will be the sixth nation that I will have the privilege of ministering in this year. By the end of 2019, I will have ministered in seven nations. This year has truly been a groundbreaking year as I ministered in 11 nations. In 2019, we already have trips planned to Switzerland, Germany, Romania, Moldova, Israel, India, and the Philippines. I am also prayerfully considering other doors that have opened to me.
As each of us endeavor to follow God's purpose for our lives, if we will position ourselves correctly, God will supernaturally bring individuals, families, ministries, and local church communities into our lives that will help to unlock a key aspect of our destiny. Though our individual purposes are distinct, we have been created to be interdependent. Daniel first received counsel and wisdom before answering Arioch, the captain of King Nebuchadnezzar, who had been sent to kill him and his companions. God faithfully gave Daniel supernatural understanding of the king's dream, but it was a group effort in seeking God for the interpretation (Daniel 2:14,17-18). Daniel was one the greatest prophets who ever lived and he lived with an awareness of his need for others.
I believe that we are in a season in the Body of Christ in which it is vital that we learn to properly relate to other members of the Body of Christ as a lifestyle. As we learn to navigate the relationships God has given to us, we will bring unprecedented transformation to the world around us. I believe God has called us together in this season that through our partnership we might bring transformation to the world around us. I believe it is the will of God for this ministry to be one of many ministries that helps to facilitate the reformation of the Church and transformation to nations. I am so thankful for the fruit we have experienced thus far, but I know God desires us to produce much more fruit! My continual prayer for you is that through your partnership with this ministry that we add grace to you and your family's God-given purpose.
Pursuing Him with all my heart,
