Dear Messengers:

Our ministry friend Amber Rose absolutely loves Jesus Christ but is enslaved by heroin.  Her brother Daniel requests our urgent prayers 'We bind and break all assignments of death and destruction off Amber Rose.  Demons and devils of Satan, by the blood of Jesus shed for her, hands off of our sister Amber Rose in Jesus' name.'

Last Wednesday at MOA was awesome!  Break Every Chain blared during our worship and prayer but our Speaking in Tongues progressively eclipsed the music.  Upon arrival at the MOA Transit Center my Spirit was instantly grieved.  I spotted a gentleman seated yonder but perceived a Geiger counter's climactic clicking upon approach.  Mathew loves Jesus Christ but shared imminent departure to Seattle without family.  Matthew returned to Minnesota to salvage a broken marriage but Keisha and their four young children remain despondent.  We bared our souls in prayer upon that bench – the Holy Spirit ministered to our wounds.  Please pray that Matthew's family will be reconciled through Christ Jesus.

1 Cor 13:1-3 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.  If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.  If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

2 Cor 5:17-19 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!  All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people's sins against them.  And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.

Last Friday at the Minneapolis Jail was awesome!  We read 'Samson's story presents the irony of a powerful and yet absolutely powerless man.  God gave Samson incredible physical strength.  But neither physical strength nor strength of will can overcome our sinful addictions that are often attempts to meet personal needs through physical pleasures.  Samson, like the rest of the judges God empowered, was born to deliver others from bondage.  Instead, Samson squandered his gifts on personal gratification.  Sobriety doesn't equal recovery.  It's the beginning point of a process that will help us to fulfill God's purposes in our lives.  Those purposes include using our pain as a platform for proclaiming God's power to heal broken lives and set captives free.'  [Excerpt from Celebrate Recovery Bible]  The Holy Spirit convicted our hearts.  Gentlemen laid bare their souls to 'find pasture' through our Good Shepherd.  In Christ, Jason.

Jdg 16:28 Then Samson prayed to the Lord, 'Sovereign Lord, remember me.  Please, God, strengthen me just once more, and let me with one blow get revenge on the Philistines for my two eyes.'

Ex 15:2 The Lord is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation.  He is my God, and I will praise him, my father's God, and I will exalt him.

Jn 10:7-10 Therefore Jesus said again, 'Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep.  All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them.  I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.  They will come in and go out, and find pasture.  The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
