Throughout life you have many different people who come and go. You have those who you don't want to remember but then you have those who you often remember. And then there is the mentor who is in your life. That person that speaks into your life, who can call you into accountability, that person who you can just talk to about situations or problems you may be facing. 

God gives us people like that to help us on our way, to lead and guide us through the path of life for reason that life can be harsh at times. Not every individual is privileged to have great people in their life or to have great men of God  who can be that voice.

Elisha had that type of person. His name was Elijah; a mighty man of God. Elisha realized that it was important to have that type of person in his life because he desired more out of life then what could be seen. He realized when Elijah passed by him and threw the mantle that if he would follow him and seek to be like him that there would be something powerful that would be imparted and given by God.

As young men it is very important for use to have an Elijah in our life. Someone who can impart the principles and show us what it means to be Apostolic. Face it, there are to many people in this world who try to throw "junk" in our lives as well as the perverseness of society. My understanding for the importance of and Elijah is to help us to see more clearly and be ready when those things come our way. 

Every young minister needs an Elijah who he can just call to talk and listen to, to hear the words, 'that they made it and that if God did it for them, then He will do it for you.'

My mentor who I dearly love, I try and hold so close, as well as I can with being so far. He is always there, ready when needed to rebuke but always ready to speak the words that are needed. If you do your best to hold your Elijah close, you will grow to areas of your life that you did not realize existed.

Geneva here we come!

This weekend I was privileged to be with the great people of the of the Geneva work. This was my first visit before I move here in April and what a wonderful city. A city that is ripe for revival!

I left Vienna on Saturday morning and dont ask me why I chose the 6:55am flight! 
I arrived and as normal I collected my bag from baggage and went outside to catch a taxi to my hotel. 
To my surprise my taxi driver spoke very good english, I told him my hotel and we were off. 

Now I have drive with Boston taxi drives and they will scare you but this guy did something that was just crazy. As we were driving down the Autobahn or Highway we came upon a traffic jam so instead of just waiting this guys throws the car and reverse and starts driving backwards down the highway dodging and missing oncoming traffic! 

So we finely pull up to what I thought was my hotel, the guy charges me 60 swiss francs and takes off before realizing he took me to the wrong hotel!
First time ever, I was suckered by a taxi driver. I go inside and have the hotel call me another taxi to take me to the right hotel. My taxi fare ended up costing me for the first hour of being there almost 100 Francs! 

Later that day I decided to walk around the city awhile and wow what a beautiful city! Mountains all around and Lake Geneve' starts right in the middle of the city, just breath taking!

That night I met up with Sis Constance and a few of the saints of the church. We ended up having dinner at a  wonderful place called " Chez ma cousine" chicken and fries. Probably the best I had tasted in a while. 

We began to talk  talk about all the wonderful things that God is going to do here in the city and beyond! 
This is a church that is ready for revival and ready for a move of the Holy Ghost! God is going to pour out a revival like Switzerland has never seen before. 

Sunday we all gathered at Sis Constances house for church where a total of about eight children and 12 adults came together to have church. Each and every person came ready to have church, ready to worship and ready to pray and what a move of the Holy Ghost we had.

After preaching God filled one lady with the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues! To God be the glory.

Now is the time, the fire is still falling and the people are ready. Jesus said, "In the last days I will pour out of my spirit" He is doing that and we MUST be ready to facilitate the revival! We must possess our lands as one! The harvest is large and the laborers are to small! 

We must not wait for everything to happen just right, for all the finances to fall into place for the perfect door to open or God to say" here is the door"
I have learned that the will of God is not some "magical thing" but rather the will of God is where there is a need!

If you only present yourself to God as a living sacrifice, the doors will begin to open and you will begin to see things you have never seen before.
Now is the Time, Today we must Start the Journey!

Knowing Him

There is a question that many of us ask ourselves and that is, how do I reach the position in which God is calling me.

Over the last few weeks God has been dealing with me about reaching certain positions in Him.

The scripture says MANY are called but FEW are chosen. Not because we are don’t have what it takes but that we don’t allow God to take us through the process of forming.

Philippians 3:10 says That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death”

 This scripture has really been stuck in my mind over the past week and I have been pondering the question. “To know him” have I really taken the time? Do we really take the time to know him? Or do we allow ourselves to focus so much on “stuff” that we loose sight of really knowing him? 
There are times we get so caught up in arriving, that we forget the process. In order to get anywhere, there must always be a process. 

I don’t think that any single person can explain how they arrived at the position that they are in their walk with God except; they have taken the time to know Jesus. And in order for US to step into the position and realm in which He is calling, then we MUST first know Him. 
Bro Tenny once said "Keep your knees down, and your head up" 
I want to know Him and I must do whatever it takes to know Him.

The Beginning of the Rest of my Life!

Welcome Friends. I hope that you will enjoy this blog. I have designed it with the intentions to keep those of you who desire to follow what is happening in Europe! 

To give you a little piece of back ground please let me tell you about how my calling first began. 
Sitting in French class trying to learn the language there would be times where my mind would wonder and I would drift off into space. One day while we were learning about different parts of France the Lord spoke to me in a very direct way, and told me that I would be a missionary. Little did I know that eight short years later that I would be on the field. As to everything there is a process and my process took some time. 

After graduation from High School upon the request of my parents I decided to attend Bible College. Now in the beginning my desire was to attend a public university and work my way to medical school. But being an obedient person and obeying my parents I visited a preview weekend at Gateway College of Evangelism and after a chapel service God spoke and said I was to attend Bible School. So I filled out my application and that fall I moved to St Louis Missouri and  began my Bible School experience.  

Through four years of classes and many test and exams I finely finished and it was time to or so I thought it was time to hit the mission field but God had other plans. Though I thought that doors were opened, God made it known that it was not his time and so I stayed in Covington Louisiana and served my pastor. After serving him and allowing God to have control of my calling, the Lord began to speak and open doors. 

One day while driving home from work I received and email from Missionary Charles Robinette and in it were these words, "We would be deeply honored to have you on our team that is reaching the nation of Austria." The door was opened and God was doing what he had promised. Within four months of receiving that email I arrived here in Vienna.

This is not just a trip to see the world but rather this is a calling and it is the beginning of the rest of my life!
