Just sending a brief update since the National Day of Prayer [NDOP] about 10 days ago.
Thursday, May 3, NDOP
It was a privilege being with our IFA leadership in the Cannon House Office Building on Capitol Hill for the 9 till noon observance…going through security and visiting with the Lithuanian Ambassador, Žygimantas Pavilionis, and passing the offices of Representatives like Michelle Bachmann and others. We enjoyed the first hour of the NDOP meeting and then joined others in smaller rooms to pray for the nation in 2 one hour shifts. One lady even received healing in her arm without even asking for it. Powerful time.
Friday, May 4 - Solidarity with Israel Event at Israeli Embassy
It was an honor to join Christian leaders from across the country and Israeli Embassy leadership for about 3 hours to show support of our Jewish friends and Israel. It was a sobering, yet joyfully holy time as we listened to Israel’s Ambassador Michael Oren share some of the threats Israel is facing these days, whether it is continued random violence from Israel’s neighbors bent on their annihilation or the Anti-Israel media spreading it’s message [See Bob Simon’s recent report on 60 Minutes].
IFA also hosted our First Friday monthly prayer conference call that Friday with over 300 friends from around the country joining in.
Sunday evening I will be speaking at a local church for their Awakening Meetings this week. I met with their pastor yesterday and another area pastor to pray for the community and to prepare for next week. Some good things are happening.
If we at IFA can help mobilize your family, church or community to prayer or our country during these days, please let me know.
Lastly, thank you to our financial partners. We need help in expanding our donor base and generating additional support. Suggestions are welcome! My anticipated ministry expenses are $8,400 per month, roughly $100,000 this year . As of yesterday, there is $700 in our ministry account.
