Philippines Mission Trip
As I look back on the trip to the Phillipines. All I can do is praise God for Him going before us. The people were so beautiful inside and out and they had such sincere hearts. In Tacloban, where we fed the children, the Lord was all over the place! All day long for 4 straight days we ministered to those beautiful people. All age groups were touched by Gods love as we poured out his message of hope and healing for their land. I was truly blessed in seeing people with so little praising and worshipping God. I was especially blessed and touched by the youth service we held on one of the nights. After Aubrey shared a brief word of encouragement, the Holy Spirit really began to move in a powerful way. Hungry hearts came to the front to experience the Holy Spirit in a tangible way. As we begin to pray for the young people, it was as if God himself just came down and began to embrace them all! Weeping began to flow as Gods love was being felt by all who were in attendance. And what blessed me the most was the fact that God included everyone that was there. Because there were a group of young boys just hanging around outside the church because they weren't "youth", they really weren't supposed to be in the service. But God grabbed a hold on those young boys and they all began to weep uncontrollably as Jeff started praying. We got a chance to pray and prophesy over them and call out their destinies! It was really powerful and I have been thinking about that moment in time since I've been back. There were so many God moments on the trip that I can't even mention due to lack of time, but this trip was definitely God ordained. And I thank God for us being able to partner with him in His work. Its amazing what can be accomplished by people being willing to be used of God. I mean we are all just regular ordinary people and God used us because we were available. And I thank God for it! Can't wait to go back!!!!!!!
