I have had a desire to reach out to people ever since I can remember. When I finally stepped out into ministry, it was not everything I thought it would be, but I can clearly remember how excited I was about the opportunity I had to serve Jesus in this way. I can remember the excitement around my ordination and saw how God moved in our lives. The years we have been in ministry has been both exciting and difficult, but we can also testify as to how the Lord moved on our behalf and the way in which He sustained us and shared His heart in such a unique way that we could not help but feel loved.
Coming to Cape Town was not easy, although the Lord led us here and provided for the journey, we ended up in places of ministry that well, I can only be thankful for we never had to stay there. We experienced the harshness of those who operated in the ministry of condemnation and the law and saw things happen that to this day saddens me to think about it. Nevertheless, these were also times where God clearly spoke to us about our future and we saw Him lead us in ways we never thought were possible.
Today. we continue to walk by faith and remain thankful for all that Jesus has done. We have seen countless saved, healed and delivered. We have seen incredible healing's take place and the Holy Spirit move in such great power in the lives of so many we have had the privilege of ministering to. We are convinced that we are about to see new doors open to us and look forward to seeing the hand of the Lord lead us in this way. My heart is that our people will see Jesus high and lifted up, that the world will be drawn to the Christ in us, and that His Church would advance, the likes of which we possibly have not seen before.
I have felt for some time now that the Father's plan for our lives in our city, Cape Town, is steadily moving us into a dimension the Lord spoke into my heart, which is yet to manifest in our midst and I am ready for whatever it is that the Lord has planned. I am convinced that we will be seeing some exciting new things happen within a very short space of time and we ask our friends to get behind us as we wait for heavens plan to be realized. I have some things that I believe the Holy Spirit has birthed in my spirit and although I am not at liberty to share them using this forum, I do pray that you would stand in agreement with us as we wait for the vision to unfold.
May our Lord guide us my friend as we pursue His heart in the time that we live in.
