It has been an incredible year. The Lord has done so much! I had the privilege to see many lives transformed by His love. Words cannot express my gratefulness for your support.
"Even though I'm young, my heart was filled with defensiveness, pain and anger from my childhood. Today I'm very grateful, God set me free! My childhood was very hard. My father was an alcoholic, violent and abusive. My heart was hardened, I even had thoughts of how I can kill my father. This year I received an answer to my prayers, my father stopped drinking and smoking but my heart was still filled with pain and anger from the bad memories. Today I came for the personal prayer ministry with Marguerite. Now I'm different after the ministry! He released the pain and showed me His truth. I'm very grateful to God and Marguerite."
Recently I ministered for the third time to first generation Christians in their land. They are coming out of incredible bondage in what their culture (over 70% another faith) has taught them what is "normal". Most of the women I ministered to told me they have good fathers, but after asking only a few questions I heard familiar stories from this part of the world of how mothers and children have been abused physically, emotionally and also sexually by their own fathers, not to mention other family members and/or neighbors. Unless they receive freedom in Jesus, the cycle repeats itself.
One of the days I ministered to a group of leaders, one group came 36 hours by train to be part of the training. During worship the Lord showed me a picture of rivers of living water flowing into each one of them. We waited on the Lord (Psalm 46:10) and several started to cry. His love poured in. What a special day. He is "God who is near". They asked me to continue to train them via Skype when I return home. In the New Year I'll be working on developing that.
In my next newsletters, I'll share about my time ministering to the Farsi speaking world, ministering to grass root leaders rescuing people from sex trafficking, and my time ministering to a pastor who is currently experiencing persecution. He was arrested but is currently home. The authorities are watching him. Another pastor was in prison for a year and then found innocent! Please keep him and all the people from the persecuted church around the globe in your prayers.
Thank you for your heart for the healing of the nations. Jesus is the desire of the nations. His Truth brings life, freedom, change & vision. His love is Everlasting.
May the Lord richly bless you and your family.
