I left for Redding a week ago! I am now settled in. I live in a cute home with 3 beautiful Romanian sisters, my rommate is from Brazil and there is also an American woman living with us- she loves to bake and so far has made us brownies and pancakes at 11:30 in the evenings. So we decided as a “family” that if we eat treats together, we do pilates together.
I have met lots of wonderful people here and can call some friends already :) I am so grateful that everyone is nice and wants to be here and seek the Lord.
Our first day of classes Kris Vallotton spoke on our identity in Christ and how Christians often work to attain things that we already have because we are God’s children. You can ask me more about our teaching if you want, its all been eye opening to me.
Bill Johnson also spoke, and he asked everyone to stand up if they had been injured from a vehicle or sports accident that still was causing pain or interfering with life. Around 50 people got healed that day! I prayed for a man’s knees and he came up to me later saying that his knees felt “heaps better”. One of my friends hurt his ankle and felt it “pop” back into place when he was prayed for, but its still quite swollen. So I’m believing for him to be fully healed.
Yesterday I had my first Revival Group meeting. I have an amazing pastor leading it, and 5 interns. There are about 60 students in my group, 9 of them or Canadians. So our group laid hands on all the Canadians and lifted up Canada together. The tears came, and my heart is eager to be apart of the movement that the Lord is stirring in Canada!! I’m proud to be a Canadian!
Yesterday we did some fun activities with words of knowledge and prophesy. We were to find a person we didn’t know and ask the Holy Spirit what city they were born in, or what the color of their bedroom was. The Holy Spirit told me that her bedroom was bright pink, and it was!! I only said pink to her though, it’s hard to be fully confident in that situation, but it was amazing because he actually told me! They spell faith here, R-I-S-k. I am excited to practice spelling out faith in my life. We also asked the Holy Spirit what their mom’s name was. We both got them wrong. Then we just spoke encourgement into their lives.
We are so encouraged to know and be confident in the fact that we are princes and princesses. Children of the king. We were destined for glory, for importance, to be like God. We are often told to tell eachother that we are beautiful or amazing. haha, its kinda fun.
As a school we are reading through Luke. There is alot of homework and reading!
The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.
Thanks for all your love and prayers! Love and miss you!
