Dear Messengers:

Last Wednesday at MOA was awesome!  To quote 'A Tale of Two Cities', my 'best of times' occurred several months ago when my son was honored as Eden Prairie student of the year.  Lucky's gracious words inspired.  My 'worst of times' occurred several days ago as my daughter publicly denounced MayKao and I as her parents during our Church's Fine Arts competition.  Her words 'Growing up without a father' crushed my Spirit.  Words heal; words rape.  Adoption masks many wounds but my daughter and I began our healing rite de passage during our drive home from MOA.  Beloved, sometimes our Divine Encounter is buckled in our back seat.  Please pray.

Prov 15:4 The soothing tongue is a tree of life, but a perverse tongue crushes the spirit.

Gal 5:14-15 For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'  If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.

Last Friday at the Minneapolis Jail was awesome!  Two weeks ago, we met a gentleman pockmarked with innumerable gang tattoos named Jermaine who stated 'I know about God' but my Spirit felt angst to where my breathing became labored.  Jermaine vomited out clearly demonic, occult ideology that we defeated with the Word of God.  One week ago, Jermaine taunted 'If God is so powerful, why make Jesus die?  Couldn't God just make us obey Him?'  Tonight, I repeated the full Gospel Message, emphasizing absolute repentance then declared 'Jermaine, Jesus loves you 'and will bring you back from captivity.'  BOOM!  The Holy Spirit exploded upon us!  Isa 58:6 pierced my heart.  'Jermaine, what would prevent you from surrendering your life to Jesus Christ right now?'  Jermaine fell to the ground.  We laid hands upon our brother as he cried out to Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Savior.  In Christ, Jason.

Kathryn texted 'Marcus needs help getting into a treatment program.  Could you please help him get into Teen Challenge?  I gave him your number.  Tonight went awesome!  Prayed for salvation with someone.  Handed out the rest of the Father's Love letter tracts.  Talked and prayed with 6 to 8 people.  One man kept crying and saying thank you to Jesus with face upturned.  I'm so glad I came!'  Beloved, Jesus is so glad too!

Jer 29:11-14 'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.  You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.  I will be found by you,' declares the Lord, 'and will bring you back from captivity.  I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,' declares the Lord, 'and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.'

Isa 58:6 Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?

Our children are dying. I need your help to share Christ with the lost.

Dt 24:16 Parents are not to be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their parents; each will die for their own sin.
