We will be doing our ministry Presbytery in January this year.. This is a great video to explain what that is, at least in part..

Angie and I believe that 2017 is going to be a great year of Harvest in the Kingdom of God... We are going to continue working the several pronged plan that God gave me back in 1985 concerning our Ministry..
1- Revivals In Local Churches..... We are very Pro- Local Church.. In fact, its the backbone of everything done in the Kingdom really.. I will accept every invitation to preach that I can possibly fit into the years schedule..
2- Broadcasting........ This year the number of radio programs will gradually increase and we continue our TV outreach in Northern Michigan.. Most of what we air you all can see in clip form on our You Tube Channel..
3- Bible Distribution...... God has blessed us to be able to put Bibles into 27 nations of the world so far including the United States efforts.... In 2017, for the very first time we will be doing a mass distribution to prisons in the US through several different Prison Ministries....
4- Sermon CDs ...... many of my teachings are available by donation on CD upon request..
5- Local Food Pantry Assistance in Traverse City and South Bend IN.......
New This Year:
In addition to putting Bibles into the hands of Inmates we will also be gathering good Christian books and magazines and donating them to Prison Libraries.. Plus as God opens the doors, we will be speaking at Jail and Prison venues as well as helping to train leaders working with our friends in PA, VA, and Delaware...
Also, Its our desire to release at least 2 new E Books this year... There was a very great response to my first 2.... More on these things later.......
Here are a few nuggets:
Show mercy when someone suffers a fall..... because you don't really stand that tall... when your friend is down don't give him a kick.... or you might receive the short end of the stick... on the day with God when you stand before Him.... to give account for a life of sin.... (a little something I wrote today while waiting for them to inventory a shipment of books for inmates)
We are super excited about getting with our good friends in Indiana for an upcoming concert event we will be helping with in March... This week we had an absolute Supernatural Harvest miracle as we launched the Prison outreach of the ministry on Jan 3.... Len has posted 2 short blogs on it on the connect site and will be adding a couple others outlining the direction our ministry will be taking in 2017 and going forward.. We are super pleased to be connecting with several new Local Churches and continuing Broadcasting, the Revivals, as well as the Camp and Prison outreaches.... Here is a quote from one of Lens messages..."The essence of the Gospel is a changed life that comes from a Christ transformed heart.. ( 2 Cor. 5:17). From that heart will flow faith, obedience, holiness, love, joy, prayer, etc… All the elements necessary to maintain our growing relationship with God. Supplied and equipped by His Spirit we reach out to all the potential He has for us..",,,, Please pray for us as we continue to build up Pastors and local churches across the country.... God Bless you all...
Our hearts are to encourage all believers wherever possible and also help to encourage Pastors of Local Churches.... We are praying about different ways we can reach out to Pastors in the coming months.....
As we approach the New Year, I believe we must realize that the only way to find the peace, joy, and happiness the scriptures promise is to be more like Jesus... to take His teachings literally and pursue His Life... The Reason the early Church was so full of God is because they were so empty of self. Failure doesn't need to be fatal.... we can live in the power of the Holy Spirit.... but if we don't take God at His Word and have Faith in Him and It, we are doomed to repeat the same mistakes we desperately hope to avoid. In 2017, make the Word a priority... Not the Word as you interpret it but The Word as He gives it.... Trust What Christ has done and Taught.... Allow the Holy Spirit to take over!!" a quote from a sermon Len Preached 2 weeks ago in Bellaire MI...
God bless you all.. I will be updating again in a few days.......

We are busy gathering Bibles for inmates and books for Jail and Prison libraries. A brief update on where we are in our supplying efforts.... 8 cases of Bibles and 490 books to date... Our first delivery should be in April when we go to Virginia .... Thanks to all the new monthly partners and the one time gifts as well.. We sure appreciate you.
Hallelujah.... Big always starts small. Many always starts with few. Much always starts with little. Any journey always starts with a step. Healing always starts with prayer. And miracles always start when you believe. Never be afraid to…always start…….
While God is continually opening more doors and ministry opportunities, supplies are in even greater demand. Some of those include:
- New or used Bibles.
- Greeting Cards.
- Christian Books and Magazines.
- Christian Tapes and Videos
"Remember the prisoners as if chained with them—those who are mistreated—since you yourselves are in the body also." (Heb 12:3) .... 2017 will be a year of tremendous Harvest for the Church.. Notable Miracles, Breakthroughs, and challenges as well....
Here are some recent nuggets from my FB and Twitter..:
Dont get lost in the shadows of days gone by.... Live in the moment with the Love of Christ in your heart..
Oh yeah... they made fun of him... they ridiculed him... He was the gossip of the community.... But Noah wasn't in the dark.. Noah was IN THE ARK!
Jesus has extended Grace to you and your enemy.....
If you need constant strokes to feel worthy... the answer is to change your focus.. start looking to Jesus!!
What is painful today often produces character tomorrow..
You can be quite certain that any voice that contradicts the written word of God is not the voice of God!
The need for constant attention and validation falls under the sin of pride. Deliverance can be found at the Cross
As we live in these exciting times, we must focus our attention on Jesus Christ and anticipate His return. We must be faithful disciples, making soul-winning a active and vital part of our lives. We have a message that others need to hear. We must share it while there is still time.
Teaching today on how the Holy Spirit helps our infirmities. Romans 8:26 tells us "Likewise the Spirit also helps our infirmities."... Vines Expository Dictionary states that in this setting the word Infirmities means "want of strength, weakness, indicating inability to produce results."....... without the help of the Holy Spirit we could not produce Kingdom results in anything we attempt!! But thanks be to God we have the Holy Spirit in dwelling us and making us strong in Gods mighty power... In our lives we can become all God has ordained we become if we will follow the leading of the Spirit and surrender our all to Christ... The is No power that can defeat Holy Ghost power!! that's a Wow moment!!!
God bless you all and see you soon.......
