Nigeria Update #9 - Friday 12/7/12

Update #9
We were not able to post from Nigeria as we had planned. This is an update that I wrote while there. Please scroll down for additional updates or see a list of Recent Posts to the left. 

There will be a second post today about noon with current news from home. 

3:00 AM
We went to bed early and with a little better result. Kelly Jo made it about 4 hours and I made it about 5.

Kelly Jo has been struggling with allergies and combined with the lack of rest she is feeling pretty miserable.

Many of you know how weak her lungs are and I know that you pray for her. She needs it right now.

If I could ask for special prayer right now I would do it. But lacking good communication through the phone or Internet I will depend on something better.

It is about 3:00 AM Friday morning here and 9:00 PM eastern time Thursday night. I believe God is quickening Holy Ghost filled saints all across America right now to pray for us.

I am believing God with other saints that God is going to heal my wife and give her rest.

Praise God for His help and healing power. He is our rock. He is our deliverer. He is our healer. We are trusting that He will do what is best for us.

Thank you for praying.

6:25 PM
God came to us and helped us at 3:00 AM when we were praying for Kelly Jo. She is not completely well but she was able to breathe better and get some more rest this morning. Thank God for it.

We found out today at church that Bro. Shobanke was up at 3:00 AM praying for us. I knew that some one was praying for us. I knew God had quickened some one to pray.

I hope to find out later who was praying for us in the states at that specific time. I imagined different families in each time zone feeling led to hold our family up before God.

Thank you for praying and thank God for answering your prayers. As I said, Kelly Jo is not completely well but she is a whole lot better than she was at 3:00 AM this morning. Hallelujah!

The services were great again today at the Ministers Conference. Thank you to those that committed to pray for services #9and #10.

I am really thankful for all who are coming each day. God moved in the hearts of these men and women again today. Several more men traveled from other cities that had to return home after the services. It is a real hardship for them to travel so far for one day but they are hungry for God to move in their lives. They expect God to speak to them in the preaching. It is a great  responsibility on me to hear from heaven and communicate to these men.

I am preaching on two different themes in the conference. I preach on one theme in the first session of the day and another in the second session.

The second session is divided into two messages so it makes for three sermons a day. I am sure that Bro. Lockwood is hearing enough of me to last him a while!

The ministers and church workers seem to be soaking it up. I am always concerned that I am not clear enough but they assure me that they understand completely.

Pastor Adelani from Ibadan is next to me translating into Yoruba so what they do not understand in English they glean the rest from him. He always does a great job. This is the fourth ministers conference we have done together.

We have two more services in the conference tomorrow and then we go to Ibadan for one service on Sunday. I know that some one is praying for services #11 and #12 tomorrow. I can feel God's help.

I will really be issuing a challenge to the men and women in service #11. I know God is going to give us some great victories in that altar service.

Well it is nearly 6:30 PM in the evening and Kelly Jo is already in bed. She came in after eating and was spent. She is determined to get some sleep when she can get it. I do not blame her. I am not too far from sleep myself.

Here are some pictures from today.

God bless everyone of you.
