It is a blessing when the Holy Spirit leads you and reveals His will for your life. It is always the case that before a blessing (victory) comes there is a battle (trials and tribulations). Amongst the people of God there is the belief that if anything is coming from God, then it will be easy. That has not been my personal experience. First you need to define in prayer if the Word that you have received comes from God and then ask for confirmation. When you are sure of it and there is peace in your heart then it is time to launch in faith. This stage (moving by faith) is when the enemy will try to stop you and at that point your “faith will be tested” 1 Peter 1:6-7
When I went in obedience to Zacatecas, Mexico, the Lord did not tell me how long I would be going for, so I bought a one way ticket. Thanks to those who prayed and to those who participated. When I arrived to Zacatecas the Lord opened doors to preach in Miguel Auza, San Marcos and Juan ldama. The Lord gave me an anointing to share His Word and He confirmed it in the hearts and lives were transformed with His presence. To Him be the glory! There were moments of praying for the sick, setting the captives free and to give counseling to people in need.
During the first few days I was questioning the reason why He had sent me and I wasn’t sure of the purpose. The Lord spoke to me and showed me that it had been Him the one who had sent me and that everything I was doing, counseling, praying for people, preaching, and every door opening that everything was His will. Our lives as Christians, when we walk in obedience, is a life full of purpose 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 360 days a year. Don’t doubt, walk with the full assurance that He has your life in the palms of His hands. Isaiah 49:16
Fourteen days after arriving there, the Lord placed peace in my heart that I had fulfilled His will there, I proceeded to buy the return ticket, the Lord provided, and on the way back I visited the Bible institute in Jalisco. I saw those young ministers hungry to serve God and to consecrate their lives completely to the Great Commission. I preached in the institute and in a mission in Cuisillos. We also went to minister to the jail in Tala and there were 32 prisoners. Pray for the institute, they are planning to send 3 missionaries to Honduras, El Salvador and Nicaragua. Also 2 missionaries will be going to Peru. The rest of the missionaries will serve in several states of Mexico.
Please continue to pray for the missionary work in Mexico, for the project of sending missionaries in February 2013. Pray for the other Bible institute in Las Milpas Sinaloa, they will start in the last week of January 2013. Pray for the projects of church planting. Also for the teams from the Slavic churches who will be going to Mexico in December, for protection and guidance of the Holy Spirit.
Above all, pray for a revival of evangelism, so that millions of new souls may come into the kingdom of God. Jesus is coming soon!!!
