Want to know what the Holy Spirit has been up to lately? Read on!


Hello from Portugal!

I hope you all are sitting down and ready for what this post has to say! I'll give you a moment to do so just in case....


Okay so now you're ready!

As our last post stated, we had the incredible opportunity to participate in Portugal's Youth Councils this past Saturday and Sunday. Throughout all last week, the Lord had been giving us so many visions, scripture passages, and words of specific instructions on what was to occur on Sunday of the Youth Weekend. I am ecstatic to report that the Lord came through in a mighty way! All four of us had a specific role to play and the Lord told us this two days before it actually happened. Bethany was to be the Spiritual Wisdom, Phillip was to be drawing the Lord on a big poster, Abby was to be showing the youth how to praise the Lord in the front of the room, and Kendall was to be the Holy Spirit's intercessor and touch the crowd one by one to give them the Lord's love. Yes, these things actually happened! Bethany preached the Word for almost two hours, in English, and they all understood everything she said through the Holy Spirits power. Phillip drew the most beautiful picture of the Lord, just to give Him more praise and glory. It was breathtaking. Abby sang songs over and over again and praised the Lord in the front of the room for everyone to see the glory of the Lord shine through her. I went around the entire crowd and hugged every single person, as the Lord led me to. I also spoke in perfect Portuguese through the Holy Spirit. Because we were willing to have faith in the Spirit and be used as the Lords vessels, every single young person came to Christ for the first time or recommitted their life to Him. I wish with every single bone in my body that everyone could have witnessed this beautiful piece of heaven that was Sunday morning. Praise God for working in Portugal in mighty ways!!

We left for Sintra (where the camp is located) for the last time this past Tuesday. We just got back to Lisbon today (Thursday). We went to camp for the last time to have a special three day camp for children who live at a Childrens Home called Novo Mundo (New World). These children are special and beautiful creations of God. Novo Mundo is a Salvation Army sponsored Childrens Home for children who are taken by the government from their families because their parents are not able to care for them properly. The government then gives the children to Novo Mundo where they live and are taken care of. While the children are there, the government tries to help the parents get back in society and clean themselves up so they can receive their children again. It was such a blessing to love on these beautiful children! We went to the beach with them and the swimming pool here in Sintra. It was hard to know that they have parents who cannot take care of them or, for some of the children, parents who abuse them. On the other hand, we praised God for having those precious children in His hands and directing them to the loving arms of The Salvation Army. We gave hugs, kisses, and the love of the Lord to each and every child. The older children invited Jesus into their heart this morning as well! Praise God!

We are now back in Lisbon and have Friday and Saturday to rest and relax after a taxing summer here in Portugal. We have church for the last time in Lisbon on Sunday and then have an early 5:00 AM flight back to the States. I cannot tell you how much this summer has blessed all four of us. We have learned and loved and been a blessing to others as well. We will never forget the faces and the love we received during the summer of 2010 in the beautiful country of Portugal.

Thank you all so much for the many many prayers! We love you all and will be back in America on Monday! :)

The "pane of glass" image also helps your backswing. If you swing the club too much Asics Onitsuka Tiger Shoes to the outside during the initial part of your back swing, you will break the pane of glass. By keeping Hogan's image in your mind as you start your < align="left">Belstaff backswing your arms will stay connected to your body - you are almost forced to swing the club on plane!
