What to do for 24 hours in an airport???

OK… due to the distribution bags I’m bringing over, I cannot leave the airport and explore the city of Singapore. Big Bummer.
Had I known, I would have made different arrangements when I arrived in the night before. So the airport will become my “City Tour”…. It’s lovely, but not that big.

1. Find a nice place to rest… done…
2. Walk all the terminals… done
3. Find a nice place for breakfast (see below)
4. Walk all the terminals… done
5. Find where the Biggest Airport slide is…but can’t get to it quite yet…
6. Walk all the terminals… done
7. Find the Butterfly garden and walk through it… OH IS IT HUMID IN HERE!
8. Walk all the terminals… done
9. Find Lunch… done
10. Walk all the terminals and check out the shops.
11. Charge phone to send emails
12. Walk and explore all the Orchid Gardens that are on display – absolutely stunning
13. Take the trams around the terminals
14. Buy postcards and find post office
15. Walk all the terminals as I’m getting sleepy again
16. Walk all the terminals
17. Find a place for dinner
18. Get a massage as I’m really really needing to close my eyes.. and they let me take a nice nap and a shower. Was less than the cost of the hotel room that was booked but “Not available upon my arrival”
19. Find the Lounge and wait for my flight.. Sorry Air Asia does not have a lounge 🙁
20. Catch my flight to Jakarta… 23 hours after my arrival….

Welcome to Singapore….


This is quiche and a cinnamon pastry.. not pizza and something unidentifiable… It was a lovely breakfast…

Dinner, nice curry….

Arrival in Singapore & Trivia!!!

Trivia is one of my favorite things… So can anyone tell me where the biggest slide in an airport is located? HINT: I’m going to look for it in the morning…..

I arrived in at 1am and found a comfy sleep chair to sleep on. And I slept. The airport gives free blankets as many arrive in the middle of the night. This is a nice touch. I will be planning my day & which will include finding the slide. Free wi fi let’s me send emails. Nice place. Love you all.

FOUND THEM: It turns colors… To those of you who wonder how it rode… well, it was closed by the time I arrived. And they just implemented a height restriction. Apparently the entertainment for the “children” was being taken advantage of by the “Big Kids”.

Check… Found the Largest slide in an airport… it turns colors….

Pink version in case you did not like green, purple or blue!

To Call this an American Team? You need me!

All is well here. Though the first part of the year started with it’s challenges, it has all seemed to work it’s way out with God proving, once again, He is faithful.
In January, He gave me a word, which was: He has committed Himself to care for me… It was a revelation that has deepened my faith to a new level.
With so much going on in the world and in our individual lives, I think we tend to lean on our own natural abilities and understanding.
It is when we face the unknown when we start to lean on and trust in and rely on Him. While all along, He patiently awaits our drawing near to him to allow Him to take care of us.
I could write a wonderful message on the depth of revelation that those words gave me, maybe later… For now I’m onward to what is at hand.

Again, It falls in line with His Faithfulness and what He promises to do. In the Spring of 2010, I was extended an invitation to minister in Indonesia for the first time. It was a step into a totally foreign place with all new faces.
Nothing familiar except the Edwin, I was meeting in Jakarta. And my relationship with him had been a short fellowship at PJ’s house. It was in that exchange that the Lord deposited something in my heart about SE Asia, or I should say, the Lord was answering things He had spoken to me about SE Asia. The trip was wonderful and I knew that one day, I would be back.

This past March,Edwin was here in the US and the planning on a return trip to SE Asia was in the works. PJ and Owen were going and they called it the American team. Interesting thing is that PJ carries a Dutch Passport , Owen carries a New Zealand and Edwin carries a Malaysian one. How could it be an American team without an American? A good laugh was all it took to put this together.

So what is at hand… first, I’ll fly into Singapore and get a day there. I’ll become familiar with Singapore and Ride the world’s largest indoor slide in an airport.
My next stop will be in Jakarta where I’ll meet Edwin and Owen. At the time I’m there, there is the Largest Christian Prayer Conference taking place. We will attend and some will minister.
A huge stirring has taken place as Reinhard Bonnke is one of the Keynote speakers. What a wonderful time it will be.

We then will depart to go back to Sulawesi, the Island where I was before. PJ will join us there. We’ll start off with Sammy and the now growing orphanage. This is where the two boys, Kenneth and Iam are.
The two of them were the first and started the orphanage. Sammy is a man who reminds me of George Mueller from England. Given a charge to take care of the Orphaned children in the 1800’s.
My time with Sammy and his wife, Ellen, showed me a heart to care for those who were bought and sold. The children that are there are rescued out of darkness. Pray for the continued provision and expansion of the plan and purpose of God for this wonderful place.

For the rest of the trip, there is an “outline” of ministry but really what I want to be prayed is “THY WILL BE DONE, not mine, BUT YOURS, O LORD.”
All of us have said, we feel that opportunities will arise as we go. And that has stirred each of us greatly…. So here is the outline:

After a few days, we’ll travel to the other side of the Island where we will be doing a three day crusade in a village. The Christians there are demoralized and have picked up unhealthy habits from the World. May Jesus be lifted up and many experience the Lord in their lives and their hearts set ablaze for the one true love.

We then fly to a small Island, Sangai Island which is just South of the Philippines, to a town called Tahuna. This time we plan to minister to pastors from various Churches. We see that this is a very strategic place for the Kingdom of God. It is an area that a migration. Migration was a word I was praying out while in Ireland last June…. Getting people to the right place at the right time so they can get what sustains their lives. The Lord wants a new migration of His Glory to cover both the Pacific and Indian Oceans.

We’ll then fly back to Jakarta and onto Sabah Malaysia. This is where Edwin has his church and we’ll minister to there for a few days. A quick note, Edwin is on the island of Borneo, which consist of three countries: Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei. Out of all the things, I had a prayer card for Brunei put in front of me this past week. I found this interesting as it was a card that our church had done for the 10/40 window years ago… and now here it was in front of me…

We’ll fly to the Swarwak (another part of the Island of Borneo)and drive about 3 hours where we can meet up with another group of people who have been touched by the Holy Spirit of late. Our plan is to stay in their Long Houses and minister to the people.

And then, go literally the top of a mountain right on the border between Malaysia and Indonesia to minister. This area of Borneo was evangelized by Missionaries earlier, and recently through the ministry of Edwin they have encountered the Holy Spirit. Hundreds of people are being freed from ancestral spirits and finding both spiritual and physical healing. Edwin has witnessed the burning of hundreds of occult items and Head Hunting items and seen these people experience the presence of the Lord. They are worshiping God with new songs, songs that they have composed. His presence is so strong there…

There is so much more and you can see that this is a longer trip. I’ll depart Sabah to start my journey back to the US in June.

Your prayer support on this is vital as we are going into areas that have not been traditionally opened to the gospel. So kindly:

1. Please Plead the Blood of Christ over the Team daily
2. Protection as we travel.. no harm or incidents
3. All luggage to arrive at the end destinations (on the way there and back here) – OH AND FAVOR WITH THE AIRLINES, They are changing the baggage weight restrictions almost daily.
4. All items we have for distribution to be ushered in through customs with out any delays
5. For sanctified food and water…
6. For the Assignments, for all to hear with our ears, receive in our hearts, and embrace all that the Lord is directing us to do.
7. For the Holy Spirit to have absolutely free reign and for us not to lean on any part of ourselves
8. For our eyes to be open to see the people as the Lord sees them
9. For the Children & Widows – James 1:28
10. For the Lord to open effective doors of Ministry ~ new arenas of ministry
11. For prosperity, Spirit (staying strong in the Lord and the power of His might), Soul (to be adjusted quickly and put down self), Body (walking in divine health), and for the continued financial provision for all that is needed to do the work that He has called us to do

My prayers over you all are:
For I thank God for you always, continually in my prayers, for without your continued support, the work of the Lord would not be accomplished on the level that he desires.
That it is through your ferverent prayers I am carried into new lands with a fire in my heart stirred through the Spirit. It allows me to touch hearts and reach people who are often times forgotten.
For a communion with the Spirit of the Lord where His Faithfulness is unveiled to you in a deeper way. For His peace that surpasses understanding to cover you with a blanket.
For all your needs that you have to be met. And the inheritance of the promised Abundant Life here on earth,.

With Love in Christ, Who is the Giver of Life.

Arrival in Jerusalem….go to a party held every 7 years….

We arrived at night to the hotel in Jerusalem. I was wowed as we came into the city. The day had already been a full day with stops at Bet-She’an, a section of the Jordan river where 30 feet separate Jordan from Israel, the Dead Sea and to the top of Messada.

One of the ladies who was with us wanted to go down to the Temple Mount and partake in the Festival of Sukkot. I, like everyone else, was tired. But the Spirit of the Lord impressed me to go on with Gloria.

The Festival of Sukkot begins the fifth day after Yom Kippur and it was the last day. It is quite a drastic transition, from one of the most solemn holidays in the Jewish year to one of the most joyous. The word “Sukkot” means “booths,” and refers to the temporary dwellings that the Children of Israel were commanded to live in during this holiday. There were “palm booths” (temporary structures on the fronts of homes and businesses.) And Sukkot is also a harvest festival, so there are many vegetables and grains that are gathered in spots.

More of me standing in awe was I was there for an event that happens only every 7 years.
A ceremony called Hakhel Ceremony.

At the end of every seven years, at the time of the year of release, at the Feast of Tabernacles” there is to take place an assembly of the whole people, “men, women, children, and the stranger that is within your gates.”

The purpose of this assembly is “that they may hear and so learn to revere the Lord your God and to observe faithfully every word of this Teaching”

Our arrival at Temple Mount was greeted with open arms. Men, women and children were there.. And Gloria and I were the strangers within the gates. So we went into a Synagogue where were the women welcomed us in to a packed room (only women) to watch the Men dance in celebration of finishing the reading of the Torah.

Packed, hot and electrified. Three words that describe the event.

We met a lovely lady who explained to us the event and walked us into an area where we could view the celebration. Men and women are kept separate from each other during this event. A sheet with holes cut into it so the women could “watch” the celebration. As the men dance around, they put little candies and flowers through the holes. It was such a joyous celebration.

I really desired that we could have been there earlier to watch it longer. It was a celebration of the Word… The Promise of God…It is a Celebration of Jesus, Who is the Word, the Promise of God, only they don’t know it.

Wow… I’m in Jerusalem.. Really I’m here in Israel, standing at the Temple mount. Thank you Lord for allowing me to see this event….
