It was this time a year ago back in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, that the Lord starting inviting our family on a faith journey to the Washington, D.C., area to help prepare our home country for awakening and revival. It has been an invigorating, challenging and strengthening year for the Royce crew during this privileged transition. We want to say “Thank you” to each of you for continuing to partner with us prayerfully and financially during 2011. We are grateful for you walking with us on this journey!
We have a couple of good things to share…First off, we moved into our rental home on December 15. Our shipment from Canada arrived without any issues and for the most part all of the boxes have been unpacked. After going from "tent to tent" for the last 6 months of 2011, we are now starting to get settled. Many thanks again to new hospitable friends here in the area who welcomed us to the community.
Second, I am privileged to come on board the Intercessors for America [IFA] team. The ministry was founded in 1973 to help mobilize prayer for awakening and revival in America. Our ministry team believes that in the years to come as historians look back on 2012, one of two things will be said: Either it was a dramatic turning point in our history or it was a missed opportunity during which the United States declined at an accelerated rate.
We also believe though that there is both a biblical and historical hope for awakening and revival. The invitation is extended to us through these 3 scriptural truths:
1. God is the God of the Nations Job 12:23
2. God desires mercy over judgment Jeremiah 18:7-10
3. God unlocks this mercy through prayer and repentance 2 Chronicles 7:14
It is with this hope and vision that we want to let you know about IFA. I will be networking, speaking, teaching and training with friends old and new across the country to mobilize prayer. We have some great tools and resources to help families, small groups, churches and communities pray for our country. Check out GetAmericaPraying.comand let us know how we can help you.
Also, we want to thank you for partnering with us financially. We have a simple, new online giving opportunity setup through the website to facilitate your giving:
