QUICK UPDATE: I’ve raised $3,300 so far. I need $250 more to hit my goal which is $3,595! 6 More days to go guys!
Hello Friends! :)
Thanks for watching the video! Like I was saying in the video, I have a blog and I write & document all my ‘supernatural’ encounters with people through healing. If you haven’t read them, here’s the link.
I made that video and wrote this to simply tell you about this exciting opportunity that I have this summer! I’m going on a mission trip to Brazil with an organization called Global Awakening. The vision of this organization is to train, equip, mobilize young people from all different backgrounds to reproduce the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit for the purpose of powerful evangelism and to fulfill the Great Commission. This two-week trip will consist of:
This two-week trip will consist of: PHASE 1 (WEEK 1) US youth team will join the Brazilian youth team and will be trained by Randy Clark along with his staff. Focusing on healing, deliverance, intercession, impartation and spiritual growth in the realm of the Spirit. During the evenings the youth mission team will travel to different locations around the city, to do power evangelism services.
PHASE 2 (WEEK 2) Fanning the Flames The U.S. and Brazilian youth will be divided into “attack forces” which they will visit different churches to apply what they’ve learned from their Phase 1 training.
All this being said, I’m asking you to support me through prayer and donating.Your support can go a long way in making my vision become a reality. I feel strongly about the call of God in my life about this trip in Brazil. God has opened my eyes to the other side of the gospel and the reality of supernatural and He has allowed me to walk, flow and operate in the gifts of The Holy Spirit through healing. My desire is to grow more in the Lord and who I am in Him and bring whatever I learn from the trip and bring those back to my local church and equip others!
I still need to raise $250 and have all the total amount ($3,595) in by MAY 24th. I know that my time is limited but I trust God that if this is something that He wants me to do that He will make the impossible and possible. The money above covers my round trip fare from San Francisco to Brazil, my food & lodging, and other fees like city-to-city transportation, travel health insurance etc.
Godbless you all! Mark Muldez firstname.lastname@example.org
This young man is going places, and doing things for the Kingdom! But it is by no power or talent of his own, only by the incredible love and grace of God, and the financial blessings of others, he has such a small amount left to raise; if you are able to bless him on this adventure God is taking him on, then please follow the prompts above.
Before Jesus ever suggested, “Go and sin no more,” He first welcomed, loved, spent time with and truly received unrepentant sinners, the men and women around him, He took them at face value, without any form of judgement. Those who were comfortable and willing to remain in the life they were living, Jesus cared for them. But though we profess to love like He loves; we often put our energy, time, effort and heart into changing the behaviour of others, rather than introducing them to His astounding grace, acceptance and love. Jesus never said a pre-requisite to receiving love was to be sinless, spotless, blameless and perfect. No. In fact, He loved generously and without hesitation; unconditionally. He desires to minister not only to you, but through you - it’s time to drop the judgemental hypocrisy and our ranking of sins and lifestyles, and start loving… Really loving.
If you’re blogging about God and faith, with the quiet and secret intention, motive and desire to receive followers, likes, messages and reblogs; then all you have written is empty, meaningless and wasted. Doing this does not please God at all, as the glory isn’t for Him…. It’s for you.
I personally believe with all of my heart that many Christians need to repent, and remove their blogs and their desire for fame from their lives. Believe it or not, both of these things can become idols… And more often than not, are.
You should spend more time with God than you do on Tumblr. And if this is not the case; your actions speak louder than your words in saying ‘I care more for my blog, than I do for my King’…
Live out your life everyday, as if it were your last. I tell you this - you must live to love, and to be an ambassador for The Kingdom. You must learn, to never be ashamed of your testimony; the story and truth of the darkness and dust from which your life was breathed and formed. Wear His fingerprints, His love and His works in you as a banner over your life - as proof that He is all powerful. As proof that Your King cares deeply enough for His children, that He heals all wounds. That your Father Almighty is passionate enough, to be a rescuer of the lost; and gentle and tender enough; to minister to the most broken of hearts, and speak them back into a rhythmic pattern of His own. To live your life, in light of these things, as an example that He did so, for you; graciously, and without hesitation or expectation of anything greater than your love for Him in return.. To do this, is to be a living, breathing, walking and conquering testimony for The Kingdoms cause.
Your biggest challenges can become your greatest opportunities. Your biggest fears, can become your greatest accomplishments. Your biggest concerns, can become your greatest motivators. Your biggest stress, can become your greatest peace. Your biggest failures, can become your greatest success. Your biggest discouragement can become your greatest inspiration. Your biggest frustration can become your greatest transformation. Your biggest sin, can become your greatest experience of true grace, love and mercy - unconditionally, and undeservingly given. There is no life too great or small, no heart too soft or hard, no age too old or young and no spirit to broken or whole; that our Maker, Creator and Saviour cannot transform, and rise up - from glory to glory; there’s nothing my God cannot do.
You know, today I am thinking about the world, and the word; whilst just one letter apart, they could not be more opposite in their motives and intentions. Where the world encourages striving, the word encourages resting. Where the world says we need smaller hips, thighs and stomachs, and larger breasts, muscles, and ego’s, the word says we are made perfect in His image. Where the world says we must prove ourselves, the word says Jesus has done everything on the cross. Where the world says life is hopeless, the word says Jesus came to give us life, and life to the full, a life of hope, and a future. Where the world inspires us to follow trends that will pass and fade away, the word inspires us to follow Christ; for He is the same, yesterday, today and forever.
Jesus Christ; He’s the Prince who came penniless and powerless to show the world what it truly means to be rich and mighty. It is not about your pay check, your account balance, your ability to remain strong, or hold others up - it’s about your heart and your motives. It’s about who you are in Him, and what moves you, leads you and drives you to be more like Him. It’s about relating and understanding, discipling and ministering. What makes a person is the beat of their heart, and pulse of their passion, not the size of their muscles, their opinions or their life savings.
