Island Of Cyprus
ISLAND OF CYPRUS
In the beautiful Island of Cyprus I did 4 make overs and was the speaker at a women's conference. The Lord did a deep work in each lady's heart, was so beautiful to see all the Lord did.
I arrived in Cyprus at Ercan Airport, which is on the Turkish side of the Island, the "Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus". We saw some UN troops and a sign "UN Buffer Zone Keep Out". We had to complete a form and get a stamp to cross the border and then the same on our return. We didn’t expect this, so it was an interesting experience.
The Make Overs and Women's Conference was sponsored by the Emerald Foundation, founder Roksoliana Melnyk.
Roksoliana wanted to involve the whole Island so we had a make over lady from each of the 4 main cities: Nicosia, Limassol, Larnaca & Paphos.
The first 2 mornings I rested from my trip to Turkey and in the afternoon/evenings ministered to our 4 Make Over ladies and another lady who struggled with fear. These are personal prayer times and we ask the Lord what He wants to do during our time together.
We drove to each city to minister to the ladies.
I did not know these ladies but God connected our hearts. The Lord was so faithful, each one He revealed something He wanted heal. So precious to be part of this, to see the breakthrough in peoples' lives.
Sometimes the Lord reveals people that have hurt them in the past but they have not forgiven from the heart, so the pain and emotions attached to it are still there. One lady had anger towards her father for the way he treated her and during our prayer time she said she realized then she did the same things to her children. She was able to deal with the issue regarding her father.
One of the ladies had a deep regret regarding her husband's death which the Lord brought to her mind, she was able to forgive herself and give the regret to Jesus. The Cross paid for all sin, those we committed and the ones people committed towards us. Another lady felt really down and have not laughed in a long time. By the end of our prayer time, she was laughing and said how good it was to laugh again... What an incredible God we serve.
The Lord revealed to the other lady that she did not feel gifted because growing up her parents valued her siblings' gifts in academics and not hers which was more in music and art. She was able to forgive her parents and God showed her how she is also gifted but it looked different than her siblings. Freedom came to her when her heart received the truth that she was valuable and precious to Him the way she is.
All these ladies testified after a few days how they saw the fruit of the prayer time in their lives. That is what we want: lasting fruit.
The Friday was time to get each lady an outfit, sponsored by the Emerald Foundation. What fun that was, we got the right outfits almost immediately. When Roksoliana paid for one lady's outfit, we found ourselves in a moment we did not expect. The lady could not receive the gift, it was so overwhelming to her. In the store we had to have a moment with her that she could receive the gift... she was worthy of this gift... what a precious moment that was!!
Then we were off to the Spa where the ladies had time to relax in the Jacuzzi and sauna and then had massages. Then it was time for new haircuts and color. The hairstylists were incredible!
The looks were finished by beautiful make up application.
The ladies looked amazing!!
We rushed off to the church for the make over reveals and first session of the Women's Conference.
The ladies absolutely loved their friends' new looks. What a moment.... When they saw the freedom their friends received, it opened their hearts to receive from the Lord.
The next day we had 2 more sessions for the conference and the Lord did a deep work in many ladies' lives. So beautiful to see.
During the lunch break a lady came to me to complain about the sound. She was deaf in her one ear. I felt prompted to pray for her and the Lord opened her ear!! She could hear me whisper!! Yeah God!!! She and her friends were amazed!! Thank you, Jesus!!
After lunch I did a teaching on impartation. God moved powerfully. The women were so hungry for more of God. God loves hungry hearts!!
What a special time we had!! I met so many wonderful people. On my way home I received a message that the lady with the incredible fear was in a situation that would normally have a huge affect on her but this time it didn't at all... she was free. Praise the Lord!!
Join us to help more women receive healing. It can be a one time gift or monthly support.
