“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers (3 John 2).I am very excited for you this year – I see God answering prayers!  I am receiving great reports from around the world about leaders connecting and collaborating for greater works and many personal prayers answered for families, ministry and business. I believe one of the keys
for this is a greater level of emotional maturity. As the Body of Christ, especially leaders, mature emotionally, they will function together in far greater ways.bd301e36-d3a8-46b0-86b0-0aa50a5e384c (1)Over the past 50 years in leadership, I have seen leaders with high intelligence, great knowledge and ability, but without much emotional maturity. We must become emotionally mature for the Church to effectively work together and truly be a light to the world! More about this in a future blog.See below for news updates and Part 2 of Bridge to your Destiny – Start with a Survey!

 January News:

January was filled with strategic planning meetings both for my ministry and many others.   I am really looking forward to Rene-Terra-Nova-in-Grapevine-John-cropped-150x150 (1)creating a new school for training with the help of some experts in media and marketing plus other major updates we are working on. Much of the month of March is planned for setting a number of initiatives in order so we can advance the Kingdom more effectively!
I had a great time with Apostle Rene Terra Nova and his family – right here in Texas! Two of Ap. Terra Nova’s daughters are now attending CFNI – Christ for the Nations in Dallas and the whole family came to see them settled. They look to me as a Pop and GrandPop and glad I live close by in case they need me.

One of my trips in  January was to Campeche, Mexico where I ministered to several hundred pastors and apostles at a Leader’s Conference hosted by Apostle David Chi, a member of CIMA (Mexico Coalition of Apostolic Leaders).87959f20-54f1-4a9f-9f3e-369c0ef439c3

Annika Dailey was also invited and had a great response from all the single leaders. I shared some wisdom with the married leaders:”Your ministry is based on your marriage, if you treat your spouse right, you will treat the Body of Christ right! Do you have a problem with respect in your marriage? Find the thing that your spouse disrespects you for (like drinking) and destroy it – then you will gain the respect you need!”

It doesn’t matter how many years a leader has in ministry, we all need God’s wisdom and encouragement – we all need to praying-with-in-mx-150x150pay attention to keep our lives right with God.

Bridging to Our Destiny.. part 2  

Receiving your Inheritance Starts with a Survey! 

The foundation of a dream or vision should begin with an accurate Survey of our Inheritance. Don’t build a Brid300-sur-150x150 (1)ge to Nowhere!

Joshua told the leaders: “Pick out from among you three men for each tribe, and I will send them; they shall rise and go through the land, survey it according to their inheritance, and come back to me” (Jos.18:4). God brought the Israelites to the Promised Land. They had won the battles, but were settling on the wrong side of the Jordan – neglecting to claim their inheritance and fulfill the plan of God. Now their leader had to command action. Joshua told the men to go walk the land, survey it and come back with a written report! When they returned, everyone received their allotted inheritance with their designated parcel of land – and finally moved into the Promised Land. …Read more
