Prayer Covering for Texas Trip

Cheryl, Cheri, Jolene and Coral are asking for your prayer covering as we follow the LORD’s leading to go to Texas to worship Him as part of the Bethlehem Village Hebraic dance team. Bethlehem Village is a yearly enactment of the birth of Christ that is presented in downtown Georgetown during the annual “Christmas Stroll.” Bethlehem Village is more than a nativity; its window into first century Bethlehem life right at the moment of Jesus’ birth. The hustle and bustle of Bethlehem is brought to life as you encounter, and participate in, a busy market full of tents dedicated to grain milling, wood working, coin pressing, cloth dying, bread making, toy making, and much more. This year the event takes place on December 2 and 3.

F2D Season Starts Thursday (11/3) at Lighthouse!

7 pm New Season & Location Tomorrow

Thanks for your prayers and patience as we have been in transition and seeking the LORD about the new season into which He is bringing us! After the divine pause a new Freedom to Dance season will be starting tomorrow, Thursday, November 3. We will be meeting in the Life Center at Lighthouse Christian Church in Rosemount from 7-8:30pm. Instead of having two groups as in the past, all ages will be meeting together at the same time.

In addition to reuniting, sharing about the recent ministry trip to Florida, and worship dancing to the LORD we will be praying for the elections on November 8th and for God’s direction regarding opportunities for ministry that are coming up! Returning and new dancers are welcome!

WHO MAY ATTEND?

  • Anyone who wishes to dance for the Lord Jesus.  No previous dance experience necessary.
  • Boys and girls from 4 years old on up! Men and Women!
  • All Christian church denominations welcome to join!  This is a multi-church ministry.
  • FREE ministry

LOCATION: Lighthouse Christian Church (3285 144th St W, Rosemount, MN 55068)

TIME: 7-8:30pm

Thanks for Prayer Covering

Here’s a short report on how the LORD had us serve while in Cape Coral, Florida:

We served suppers (cooked in the Holy Smoker) from 5-7pm daily and had the opportunity to pray with many people. There were many tears as the Lord brought comfort to many. One gentleman asked if he could come back just for prayer and not food since the Lord touched him so much.

After 7pm we went to the “Guatemalan village” (actually from many different Latin American countries), a community of Latino migrants nightly to bring food and other items (soap, water, towels, toys).  They had not received much help because they were too poor to purchase insurance.  We had a number of opportunities to pray with them and share the gospel. Please pray that others will come in and help them since last we heard no one else had come.

Divine Pause, New Direction, and Travel

Divine Pause and New Direction

Thanks so much for your prayers regarding a new place to meet! The LORD has provided a place for us at Lighthouse Christian Church (3285 144th St. W., Rosemount, MN 55068) on Thursday evenings. Glory to God!! Currently the LORD has directed us to take a divine pause and wait, and not just to go forward with how we have done classes in the past, therefore we will not be meeting on Thursday, October 27th. As we have been praying into this new season we have been sensing the LORD is doing a new thing with Freedom To Dance. He has been emphasizing being ready to travel and minister wherever He directs, at this time we are sensing we will being meeting intermittently

Traveling to Florida

We would appreciate prayers for us (Brian, Cheryl, Jolene, and Coral with Helen joining later) as we travel to Florida to help a disaster relief team in Cape Coral, FL after Hurricane Ian share God’s love and hope. The LORD just provided an Air BnB for lodging tonight. Praise the LORD, our Jehovah Jireh! Please also pray for divine encounters on the way, safety in travel, strength for serving, keeping in step with Holy Spirit and all lodging needs to be covered. Thanks for covering us on this assignment!

Thanks For Chicago Prayer Covering

Thanks so much for your covering the Chicago Tent Revival with your prayers! We were on the west side of Chicago proper and witnessed the uniting of Christian brothers and sisters, felt a shift in the atmosphere as we lifted up the name of Jesus in worship, plus had a number of people accept Jesus as savior, be healed and delivered. God gave me the opportunity to share from the Word with one woman how salvation is a gift. Praise the LORD for He is good, changes lives, and provides abundantly!!
