Thank you, dear one.  We had him read aloud in Sunday School yesterday, and he does well. I suspect his spelling is weak. His penmanship is atrocious.  Earl, during his history time, is working on him with note-taking skills.  But I suspect his knowledge of history and current events is very poor.  We are ordering a history book (not a textbook) called The Light and the Glory to use for him. Once it comes in, we'll dig harder into history.  Earl is having him writing out his ideas in terms of the Bible and a little on science.  I don't intend to get into writing so much, myself, until we get the basics of grammar down. We are just launching into noun functions tomorrow.

Jodi sounded okay the last time we talked (about a week ago). She seesaws back and forth. I'm concerned about her not being in fellowship, heavy pain-meds, and a Mormon roommate.  I'm hopeful she will come to the conference and we'll see miracles happen. That's a good prayer request...for her roommate and her to come. 

As for the conference, we're still working on the logistics; but it is going forward, and enthusiasm is growing. We decided to hold the conference in our church and invite the others. I must confess that I'm annoyed with one church. I wrote their leadership a lengthy email asking for THEIR ideas on a conference we could hold together. It is clear they want nothing to do with us. The other charismatic church revealed an attitude of Christian stability is in their congregation and doubtful to be seen elsewhere. Heartbreaking.  But God can work miracles to heal what is shattered.  I confess we haven't contacted the other two churches. One is so tied up in knots that they seem to be unable to breathe without getting permission from the district headquarters. The other is a Church of Christ, which seems content to be by themselves. I just don't want their attitudes to infect Earl and me, and that is another prayer request--that we keep reaching out despite the rejecting attitudes.  Thank you.  - - Gayle

Gayle, that history book sounds like it didn’t leave God out of history. Does the teen seem to like this arrangement for school? You didn’t say why he did poorly in school since he is intelligent. Yes, those three aspects of Jodi’s life are not a good combo. Wow, I’m surprised that your church will be the host. Is it big enough? Will it involve more work for you guys than if you held it somewhere else? Jodi and her roommate could be healed and delivered if they attended the Conference.

Lord, only You can change these attitudes of pride, lukewarmness and disunity in these other congregations. “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.”  Protect the zeal of Gayle and Earl in the face of rejection and standoffishness.  Gayle and Earl are set apart for Your work and will not be crushed. It is Your battle with Your House, and we claim the victory in Christ Jesus.

I command Jodi, her roommate, and the indignant churches to feel a burning desire to attend the Conference. In Jesus’ name. “Go out into the highways and along the hedges, and compel them to come in, so that My house may be filled.”

 Gayle, the following testimony is by the female evangelist who I told you was coming to the Navajo reservation for a crusade that was just for them and not public:

News update about the venomous bite I got while on the missions trip in Arizona. While I was on the missions trip in Cameron Arizona evangelizing to the Navajo’s on their Reservation the last part of the week while I was there, I was walking outside of the church building in the evening and at the last second I caught a glimpse of a snake I had just stepped on its tail and the description of it was grey and black spots shaped like a diamond and outlined with white. It was a baby snake and I was just as surprised as it was and I didn’t know at the time what kind it was and it bit me. I didn’t think anything of it, and the next day I had gotten a red bump at the lower back part of my leg by the ankle as you all see in this picture. The red bump stayed the same size for the rest of the week and I got home last weekend July 1st. The red bump was getting bigger and more painful until three days ago I had to go to the ER because suddenly I was getting painful body and muscle aches and chills and several red lines from the bump were growing upward in my veins of my leg, I couldn’t even stand upright. Well I got treatment at the ER, the RN’s and docs really wasn’t sure what the wound was exactly, so today I went to a specialist for a follow up and it was confirmed it was definitely a venomous bite and was astonished that I survived this long without any treatment. I said this is totally God who kept me safe and able to evangelize while on the missions trip without hindrance! Some may say, well why did God let it get this bad now… and my answer is … To prove that it did indeed happen with visible proof ! God is so good!Oh one more thing the specialist doctor I went to see for the follow up, He is a Muslim and I got the chance to tell him about Jesus due to this miracle! Though he is not going to convert any time soon, he did say that he was impressed with my faith in Jesus!

A wonderful testimony!  Thank you!

The young man we tutor has issues with RETAINING information, and that is a prayer request--that he does better. His short-term memory is very good; but much of what I taught him last week was gone when I quizzed him today.  I'll keep hammering.

The conference plans are going forward.  We appreciate your prayers as we get closer.  We're cutting some of the schedule, making adjustments.  We'll be working on flyers and getting them out shortly.  Thank you for caring.  - - Gayle

Gayle, could it be that the teen requires reviewing of the material and study of the material at certain intervals? Is it possible that he is out of practice with personal study habits?

Lord, change the workings of the teen’s brain so that he will be able to retain the material that he learns. Help Gayle and Earl to coordinate all of the details for the Conference so that it will change the lives of the people who attend. Give all of the invited churches and people a burning desire to attend. Then bless them with salvation, healing, and deliverance as they flock to the Conference.

I command the teen’s long-term memory to function normally in Jesus’ name!

Amen!  I believe the young man has learned some poor habits through the years--of dumping information from his brain after taking a test then moving on.  But we are also discovering a number of "holes" in his basic knowledge.  Although he knows his small letters and capitals, for example, he confuses them in words. Something like: aniMaL. He has very good short-term memory, which hid deeper issues.  We will be moving through the material slower, and that is okay.  I cut way back on what I was doing with him, and yesterday was a good day.

We are still working on the logistics for the conference. We have the flyer done. And we sent it out to the one church that has an email address. The other churches we will have to contact by phone to get mailing addresses. (And, yes, I did seek those online.)

Thank you again for your prayers.  Earl's tire wall is growing, and less critters are getting in; but something ate the corn yesterday that was coming up.  We are seeing some fruit for all our labors, though.  Had enough beets to share some with a neighbor. Thank you for caring.

Nothing at all has changed at our daughter's work.  At least, because these difficult employees are getting their way, the potential for violence has dropped. We keep hoping a job will open elsewhere for her.  Thank you for your concern and prayers.

Yes, Gayle, the teen may have to learn at a slower pace with plenty of review. Wow, you had enough beets to share! Your garden is improving!

 

Lord, help the teen to program this educational info in his brain and to retain it. Bring him up to his age level in mental function. Grant Charity a breakthrough about a new job offer. Thank You for the improvements in the garden. In Jesus’ name.

Amen. Thank you so much!

I'm noticing what I believe is some passive rebellion in the kid. He really doesn't like English, it seems. Earl is very good with him in the other subjects. We had to cut today short because of stormy weather, so we drove him home. Had a little talk with his grandmother. She does know the Lord, but unsure if she is interested in fellowship at all. We invited, but no receptivity at this point, seemingly.  Thank you for your concern and prayers. Have a good weekend.  - - Gayle PS We planned to post flyers in the neighbor city and pick up some groceries, but the weather intervened. Hopefully, we can follow through tomorrow.

I curse the root of the spirit of rebelliousness in the boy in Jesus’ name! I bind and cast out any unclean spirits in him in the name of Jesus! I speak the spirit of peace into his mind and emotions. In Jesus’ name.

 

Lord, lead the boy and his grandmother to a relationship with You. Convict their conscience through the drawing of the Holy Spirit. Enable Gayle and Earl to post the flyers and get to the store. In Jesus’ name.

Thank you.  We will sure do our best to develop these relationships. The weather is still grim, so we'll wait until tomorrow.

Our daughter requested my prayer, but it sounds as if she could use a LOT of prayer today.  (I will modify her request because this is sensitive information.):

"Pray for me.  I started my day at 0130am this morning with a call that all the **** in my area were down (managed to get that straightened out/repaired in ~30 minutes).  Then my “difficult” (job of employee) got ticked because of instructions I had given our control room on fixing the issue—even though it fixed the problem (go figure).  Anyways, from there, we had 6+ ***** down this morning, (another employee) call in sick, then one of our ***** stopped working so I had to borrow (workers) from **** so we could cover it and send a team up the mountain.  Then a high priority **** had issues.  Then all ***** were out at our (base).  This on top of it being Friday, payroll day, and weekly reports being due.  Just one disaster after another—with barely any pause."

Thank you for your prayers for her.  We would appreciate doubled prayers, as well, that God would open another job for her. I believe these issues are weather-related, but sabotage is a concern. This nation is far more vulnerable than most people realize.  Thank you.  -- Gayle

Lord, help Charity to catch up on her rest. Pacify the “difficult” (job of employee) about the instructions. Restore the 6+ **** to working condition. Heal the sick employee in Jesus’ name. Restore the **** to full functioning.  Iron out the issues with the high priority ****. Restore all *****at the base. Let the payroll and weekly reports go forth as soon as possible. You, Lord, are in charge of this mayhem. In Jesus’ name.

The following posting appeared on Facebook about an hour ago by an evangelist. Right away, I thought of Charity:

“I just heard the words “open door in job market”…somebody that is needing a job is about to get a phone call. Let me know when you hear so I can praise God with you!”

Gayle, there have been prophecies galore on FB that God will bring one disaster upon another (weather, geographical, economic, war, etc.) upon America for judgment because we have not repented about many issues and have been ignoring Him. In the middle of some night soon, the enemy in foreign uniforms will be inside the U.S. along with planes overhead. Believers should stay very close to God, and they will be protected.

Thank you for your prayers.  I will definitely be sending on a report when Charity gets a new job!

It is a difficult time for believers, even if we are under His wings.  The relentless pressures as well as the grief over all happening in the land is not easy.

Earl learned he is losing his VA medical.  They decided he is making too much money, despite how we're only a couple steps above the poverty level, live in an area that is financially demanding (no public transportation, etc.), and we're paying off medical debt. It means he is being cut from his Coumadin, monthly blood testing, and physicals. Fear slammed me hard, but I'm climbing on top of it. Even so, it is one more challenge when we have so many others. So...thank you for your prayers for us.  Bless you and your weekend!  - - Gayle

Gayle, I would suggest praising God in the midst of that shock about Earl’s medical. God is your Source and Resource. Show your dependence upon God for everything. You can handle the pressures and griefs by losing yourselves in Jesus. I just read a posting that we should fast and pray because all **** is going to break forth this weekend. One posting said that KY passed a bill that Bible classes would be added to the public schools. Another posting said that Canadians found out that America is a police state.

I rebuke the spirit of fear in Gayle and Earl in Jesus' name! I command them to rest in the Lord in the name of Jesus!

Lord, You can provide a supernatural dose of Coumadin for Earl and even heal him, since man refuses to help him. Boost the faith of Gayle and Earl to know without a doubt that they are in Your hands. You will supply their every need. Give them an “AND SUDDENLY!” in their lives. I plead the Blood of Jesus over the people of the United States, Israel, and everywhere for Your divine protection for this weekend and beyond. In Jesus’ name.

Amen.  I do believe people are very uneasy because of the Trayvon trial. Whatever verdict comes back, in the natural, it looks like rioting will erupt.  If major unrest takes place, the government could impose martial law.  We live in troubling times.

Thank you for your prayers. I wrestle whether to request prayer for the situation with Earl's health. Sometimes instead of praising God and waiting on Him and trusting Him for the answers, I do go running to my Christian friends to pray about things.  But, then, the enemy could want me to shut up so that people aren't praying.  Sometimes, my hearing the Lord in specifics can become very muddled.

The weather could deteriorate fast, but we hope to get the flyers out this afternoon. We have issues about driving because of dangerous flash flooding in our area and our dirt roads becoming impassable to serious mud, as well as flooding; so we have to keep a close eye on the weather before venturing forth. 

Again, thank you for the prayers.  - - Gayle

Gayle, according to the following Scriptures, we should pray for one another:


Ephesians 6:18 - Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

1 Timothy 2:1 - I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, [and] giving of thanks, be made for all men;

Colossians 1:9 - For this cause we also, since the day we heard [it], do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.

Lord, grant Gayle and Earl travel mercies when they have to venture out. Heal Earl supernaturally of the medical problems. "Great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all."

Thank you. 

We were able to post flyers in the neighbor city for the conference, and another church asked for a flyer. So, we have possibly three area churches that will at least let their churches know it is being held.  We'll see what God does from here...

We are scheduled to have a baptism today.  Our church doesn't have a baptismal unit, so we're going down to the lake. It's pretty shallow, but it is doable. We do appreciate prayers for rain...

Again, thank you.

Hi Gayle,
  Ephesians 6:11-18.... EVERY battle is a spiritual battle WHOLLY! Wear the armor...it is not a prayer to pray, or an "O Lord let me be protected by the armor"
DO EXACTLY WHAT
IT SAYS!!
  The shield it says is to quench ALL not some...not the easy ones but ALL the fiery darts of the wicked one! Also she could pray this Psalm. And this is the best part. tell her to pray for him. Every time he acts out...pray for God to bless him, hold him love him...let him know Lord that he'd not alone he doesn't have to mistreat people...before long she will see changes...at first it is a physical pain in the offender as God hushes them when they are striking out, and then they begin to come around. I found my self in a horrifyingly similar situation except that the person was over me, and had no reason other than Spiritual to dislike me....God changed him before my very eyes! It was amazing.... Love to you both in Christ, prayers up for you both, for your daughters safety and your peace!


Psalm 35

King James Version (KJV)

35 Plead my cause, O Lord, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.

Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.

Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.

Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.

Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the Lord chase them.

Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the Lord persecute them.

For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul.

Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall.

And my soul shall be joyful in the Lord: it shall rejoice in his salvation.

10 All my bones shall say, Lord, who is like unto thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?

11 False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge things that I knew not.

12 They rewarded me evil for good to the spoiling of my soul.

13 But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.

14 I behaved myself as though he had been my friend or brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth for his mother.

15 But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together: yea, the abjects gathered themselves together against me, and I knew it not; they did tear me, and ceased not:

16 With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their teeth.

17 Lord, how long wilt thou look on? rescue my soul from their destructions, my darling from the lions.

18 I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people.

19 Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.

20 For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.

21 Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, and said, Aha, aha, our eye hath seen it.

22 This thou hast seen, O Lord: keep not silence: O Lord, be not far from me.

23 Stir up thyself, and awake to my judgment, even unto my cause, my God and my Lord.

24 Judge me, O Lord my God, according to thy righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me.

25 Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it: let them not say, We have swallowed him up.

26 Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at mine hurt: let them be clothed with shame and dishonour that magnify themselves against me.

27 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.

28 And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day lon

Thank you, Tammy...and everyone else.  I intend to copy this and use it in my devotional time--praying over each verse. 

I was mistaken on two points in my latest post... The baptism will be next Sunday, and we have seven people requesting it.  For a church of about 30 people, this is pretty amazing. One of those to be baptized is the boy we're homeschooling.

We plan to go to the VA on Tuesday to see if we can appeal the decision to cut Earl from his VA benefits. Since we're only a couple hundred dollars above the US poverty level, and we're paying down medical bills, this is quite a kick that the enemy gave us.

I'm not on medical insurance myself of any kind and haven't seen a doctor in about 18 months for anything. God has been very gracious to me!  But having said that, I talked to a nurse today at our church about my fingernails being bluish. She confirmed my concerns I'm not getting enough oxygen.  So... Earl and I both need God's healing, His grace, His miracles.

Two area churches were to put the flyers for our conference in their bulletins today, and a third church may do so next Sunday.  Interest is growing. 

Thank you for your prayers.  - - Gayle & Earl

"Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain."

Gayle, that is a very good percentage of baptismal requests. it is a good idea to appeal the medical decision. Maybe they think people will take their unjust decision lying down. Sing the old song as a faith action for rain, "Raindrops keep falling on my head." God is the Rainmaker!

I rebuke the lack of oxygen in Gayle's body in Jesus' name! I command the correct amount of oxygen to reach Gayle's extremities in the name of Jesus! "Somebody has touched Me: for i perceive that virtue has gone out of Me."

Amen.  We'll keep you informed on how things progress.  : )  I would say on average we have about 20 people each Sunday. So, about one-third of the people are getting baptized. It is a good sign that people are wanting to get their lives in order. Thank you for your prayers.  Ugly clouds overhead BROODING.  Okay, going out to sing... : )  Blessings on your week.

Hello, Tammy, Donna, and anyone else out there. 

No problem, Tammy, on jumping in where you did.  I prayed through your words and also Psalm 35--both for our daughter and our medical needs.  Thank you.

Our daughter has sought to do what she can on her end, although I'm sure there is room for improvement. We have prayed for the salvation of these troublesome men, yes.  I will send Psalm 35 to her.  She has shown remarkable patience and kindness, really, to them. Despite how evilly they have been treating her, for example, she bought them all pizza (with her own money) about a week or so ago.

Like Earl and me, she is probably too passive in actual spiritual warfare.  I would like her to be able to come up to our spiritual warfare conference. I believe it would benefit her. But the job situation is such that unless God works a miracle it won't happen.  We pray for that miracle!

Last night we received one-tenth of an inch of rain. That is HUGE.  Thank you for your prayers. More rain is definitely needed, though, admittedly. Thank you.  We were so blessed to receive that rain!

Thank you so very much.  - - Gayle

Lord, draw people from the north, south, east, and west to come to the Conference. You know the ones who would benefit from the topic that will be taught. Seal the attendance of those people. You are so kind for sending the rain to AZ. We love You and exalt Your name. Send even more rain to the parched areas. In Jesus' name.

Amen. Earl and I met with a Christian woman who called and asked to see us. She attends a church out of the area (drives about an hour). She had become disillusioned with the churches in our area but has prayed for Concho thirteen years, she said.  She said she started crying when she saw the flyer for the conference. Earl said that if we get packed out, we'll move chairs down to the lake and hold it there.  Rain, then, wouldn't be a good idea.  She told us things we hadn't known in terms of the darkness of our area. Some teens shot at a home and almost killed a child--missed by about an inch. The sheriffs were called in, and they refused to do anything, saying the teens were probably shooting at an elk or something and missed. According to those on the scene, though, they shot at the mobile intentionally, and possibly because of the race of the family. Also, at the 4th of July celebration that the city put on, it became a drunken orgy with one woman removing her clothes.  BUT we believe Satan is having his last hurrah's before the Light explodes. Thank you ever so much for your prayers! May the Lord be glorified in all the earth...including Concho. The woman also had a lot of fear and could use prayer. She wanted us to invite the Mormon church or they would curse us all. We told her they could curse on because a curse doesn't land upon the righteous. And we are righteous in Christ. But I don't think she's convinced. We told her to invite whatever Mormons she wanted but not the Mormon church, itself. Again, thank you for your prayers. - - Gayle

Gayle, it seems like God sent that woman as an angel of revelation about the news of the area. They should clamp down on regulations for the future July 4th celebrations or refuse to hold them.

I rebuke the spirit of fear and superstition in the woman in Jesus’ name! I command her emotions to align with the Word of God! I speak the spirit of peace, love, and joy of Jesus Christ into her heart. “God has not given me the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

Lord, pack out the Conference and let the weather cooperate in Jesus’ name!

Thank you for your prayers.  We look forward to what God will do.

As for what happened at this last city celebration, I suspect that many / all the city leaders were out there in the middle. And I suspect the sheriffs don't care.

Homeschooling is going well. Earl and I both slowed down what we're doing so as to help this young man with his long-term retention. That is going really well. He's a good kid. He just finished an experiment regarding celery.  Earl and I had learned something new--that one can cut celery above the bottom and soak the bottom in water (changing the water on occasion). Place it in the window. A new plant will emerge. In other words, you don't have to buy celery again once you get enough going in your window or planted outside. Same works apparently with Romaine lettuce and chives. Earl is having him go through various steps of observation, theorizing, and documentation.

Have a blessed day.

I have two celery plants that are growing well in the window.  Our student started #3 (to observe the process from the beginning), as well as Romaine lettuce.  We haven't seen it work yet, ourselves, with Romaine. We'll find out. Eventually, I'll buy some chives. I've heard it also works with leeks, scallions, cabbage, ginger, and bok choi. With the chives, one just puts the white part in a glass jar with water, and keep cutting the green as it grows.  A good point is to keep the water clean.

We received a little more rain last night. Thank you for your prayers.  Nothing new on our daughter or the conference. Today is our brother-in-law's birthday (the conference leader). I do appreciate your prayers for him and my sister. They're being hit from their end. My sister Cheri has a lot of pain and weakness with her back.  Thank you for caring.  - - Gayle

Lord, thank You  for sending  a little more rain to AZ.

I bind the demonic attacks against the conference leader and Gayle’s sister in Jesus’ name! I rebuke the spirit of infirmity in Cheri’s back in the name of Jesus! I command the spirit of pain and the spirit of weakness to go in Jesus’ name! Spine, align with the Word! I apply the Balm of Gilead to Cheri’s back in the name of Jesus. “But let it rather be healed.”

Amen. I stand in agreement with you! 

Have a great weekend.  Lord willing, we will see seven baptized on Sunday in our lake. It is very shallow because of the drought and so many siphoning off what is in there, but it'll get the job done. One to be baptized is the kid we are homeschooling. He's really doing well. Got an A on his test in Bible today. Earl went over 1 John 1 in-depth with him, and he understands it well. Thank you for your prayers!

Lord, let the ones who requested baptism follow through with their commitments. Thank You for the teen boy’s understanding of the Scriptures. Increase him in all aspects of his life. In Jesus’ name

Gayle, I thought you might be interested in this prophecy that I saw for Arizona. It is especially interesting in light of what you said about the leadership of AZ. There was a prophecy for each state of the United States. Have a blessed weekend!

ARIZONA- My desert bloom, the flower of My love, My fragrance shall fill the valleys and deserts, My love shall consume you. Expect new manifestations of My love, yes, great persecution for what I shall do, but it is Me and never allow man to tell you otherwise.  I am preparing the heart of the governor and their council. Yes, they will be saved and filled with My Spirit which shall go forth from the government to the state. Manifestations shall be commonplace in gas stations and convenience stores.  Greater glory shall be released in these locations.

Six baptized in our lake this morning.

For a church of about twenty, this was powerful.

Getting excited to see what God will do next.  The teen we homeschool was beaming during Sunday School. He was among those baptized, as were two other young people. Thank you for your prayers--especially for God's protection.  - - Gayle

Gayle, that is beautiful about the baptisms. Did one not show up? I think you had mentioned seven. I am sending you a title to type into the Youtube browser. An evangelist told me to share it with as many places as possible. It is an unusual spiritual video:

Facebook fam plez watch this video. It will open your eyes if….

Lord, we ask Your divine protection upon Gayle, Earl, their family, the leaders of the Conference, and upon all of the people whom you want to attend the conference. In Jesus' name.

It didn't come through, but I really can't watch videos much.  We are off-grid so rely upon a Wi-Fi card. We have limited bytes, therefore, each month. 

Yes, one person didn't show to be baptized.  He is a boy who accepted the Lord last month. His family is going through a lot right now and weren't at church yesterday.

Much of our city is pretty ugly and dry, but the lake area really is awesome.  My plea and prayer to the Father is that the rest of Concho will be awesome in beauty, as well. Including our land, which is very dry.  Today, I read an interesting verse.  “Naphtali” means “twisted, perverse, cunning, wrestling.” It sounds like our city—a twisted, perverse place which is increasingly wrestling with what to do with God. Anyway, what I opened this morning to was the verse: “Naphtali is abounding with the favor of the LORD and is full of His blessing; he will inherit southward to the lake.” (Deuteronomy 33:23)  Much of Concho, and especially where we live is north of the lake. Just kind of an interesting personal rhema to put on the shelf. But I felt led to pray it for my city.  Thank you for your concern and prayers.

Our daughter will have to climb the tower next week, likely. I still don't get the point. And I remain concerned about the undue exertion on her heart. We've seen no movement on anything changing there or a job for her here.  Unsure what the Lord is doing.  My sister and brother-in-law are also in God's waiting room (the ones coming here to do the conference). They have a sense that they aren't where they're supposed to be but no door has clearly opened for them elsewhere. Thank you for praying!

Gayle, I found out that only Facebook accounts could view the video. It sounds like your city is in the “Valley of Decision”. That verse sounded very prophetic. Some day you can look back and say, “That verse came true for us.” You should definitely record it in your journal. I pray in agreement with you about Deut. 33:23. Oh, that is so cruel about the tower. Can’t Charity get a doctor’s excuse? I read in a posting by an evangelist that if you don’t hear directly from the Lord through the Word or through prayer, then make your own decision based on peace in your heart. If you make the wrong decision, He will get you back on track.

Lord, cause the boy to feel an urge to get baptized when the opportunity arises again. Bring a “Suddenly!” that would prevent Charity from climbing the tower. Bring a change in circumstance for the conference speakers that would relocate them where You want them to be. In Jesus’ name.

Yes, our city is in the Valley of Decision.

I must confess I don't keep a journal. Many years ago (80s), I religiously kept a journal. I put EVERYTHING in there from A to Z.  Long story short, we sued an organization and were counter-sued. (A slumlord situation involving witches / Satanists.) Our lawyers told us we had to turn over to them, under oath, all journals we kept during that time. I explained that I had a personal journal with mostly Bible stuff. I was told by our lawyers that if I mentioned the situation in the journal then I had to turn it over to the opposition. I never had it returned. I felt so violated since I had really poured my innermost self, spiritual problems, family problems, etc., into that journal. I haven't kept one since. Maybe that has been a mistake, but I just can't bring myself to start one again.

Charity possibly could get a medical excuse, yes. The accident happened in 2001. She has avoided doctors pretty much ever since. She had such a bad, bad experience--nearly killed her with their incompetence a couple times. So, she would have to go into new doctors and have all the tests run again to prove the point. It is a very difficult time for her at work to take off for personal time, as well. Not that there is ever a good time with this job. She used up a lot of her personal time when she had car trouble. So, she will proceed with the climbing unless God closes the door on it.  She understands that if she starts feeling ill that she'll come back down. If some other job would open up where we are, I believe she would jump ASAP because these problem employees are emboldened.  But the door isn't opening for something else. God's timing is not our own.  Thank you for your prayers.  - - Gayle  PS Getting busy here with so much to do with family coming in, the conference, the homeschooling, normal chores, and a new "demand" (someone in the church needing water--need to fill up jugs and get those on over to them.

Gayle, it seems like they should have had to give you back the original after making copies of your journal. A journal benefits me by being able to look up the date on which something important happened. It keeps a running account of my life if I should ever write a book. It also keeps an account of my most cherished memories of which one forgets the details after time has passed.

Lord, it seems that there are not enough hours, hands, and strength to accomplish all that Gayle and Earl need to accomplish in the coming weeks. “But with God all things are possible.” “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” In Jesus’ name.

Thank you, Donna.  As it turned out, we dragged a bunch of water down to the city but couldn't reach the people.  They haven't called, either. We have found people in our area frustrating. These were new people to the church, and we don't know where they live.

Our daughter may have to attend a conference instead of climb a tower next week. We'll see.

I do get the point of a journal. One other problem, though, is that I am so long-winded and detailed as I write--as you can see.  : )  I would write a book every month on my life, I'm convinced, if I kept a journal.  As it is, I keep some notes in my Bible study (in an Excel document) as I work on it--keeping any personal rhemas, thoughts.  Of course, that is only on one book right now. I'm studying three other books, as well. But with those, I'm only taking notes on the passages themselves. 

Thank you for your concern and prayers.  My sis and brother-in-law get on the road early tomorrow from California. Appreciate your prayers for their safe journey here.  I'll work at posting something over the weekend to let you know how the conference is going. It's likely to get busy... Bless your weekend.  - - Gayle

I guess the new people will get the water from somewhere if they can’t leave better instructions about their address than that. Wow, a conference would be considerably more favorable than the climb. Maybe you could train yourself to be more concise in journalling with only the highlights of your day. Have a victorious Conference!

 Lord, grant Gayle’s sister and brother-in-law a safe journey and travel mercies. I dispatch angels to guard them on all sides. Anoint them with divine utterance at the Conference. Magnetize people to attend and to be filled to the uttermost. In Jesus’ name.

The new people were to give us directions once we reached the city and gave them a call (that we were there.) I called about six times over about 30 minutes, and no answer.  And they never called us. Still haven't.  

My sister and brother-in-law reached the halfway point in their drive and have stopped for the night.  The HSRM conference begins Saturday morning.  

Thank you for your prayers.  Back to work!  Blessings.  - - Gayle PS Will think about starting a journal again.

Gayle, you did your part with gasoline, time, and effort.

Lord, see Gayle’s sister and bro-in-law the rest of the way safely. Coordinate the details for a smooth Conference. Let Your name be glorified in all of this. In Jesus’ name.

The difficult employee at our daughter's work is supposed to receive his fourteen-day action of discipline tomorrow or Tuesday. (That's fourteen days removed without pay.)  His behavior has only worsened despite the threat of this suspension over his head. The best guess is that he sincerely believes he is above being disciplined. When the hammer falls, no one knows what is going to happen. The senior boss has been in meetings with legal and others, seeking to determine the best way to deal with the situation. I think even coworkers who have been friendly with him are very concerned that he could do something scary / stupid. The latest incident, which thankfully didn't involve others, was that he did something very stupid in his job (disregarding established guidelines), which could have gotten himself killed. He was slightly injured, and his attitude was that of no big deal.

Also, we would appreciate prayers for a couple other things.  Our teen granddaughter will be coming to stay with us next Saturday. I don't want her in any way to affect the neighbor we tutor. Also, it will be a challenge to homeschool both. Second, I am going to get my first physical in over 2 1/2 years next Friday, Lord willing. I am nervous because I have so many things I haven't been dealing with. My pap-smear, for example, had problems last time and I never followed it up. Since the last physical, I am also having circulation problems and my neuropathy has worsened. Because I don't have medical insurance, I don't know how to handle any of this. So prayer is appreciated as I let the Lord lead.

Our church continues to grow since the conference. New people with new problems have begun to come. A third prayer request is that the Lord will send us some stable people with character that can undergird what we are seeking to do with those in great need.  Thank you.  - - Gayle

Lord, contain this temperamental employee with a supernatural restraint. Protect everyone in his path. Place him in a secure environment in which he can do no one any harm. In Jesus’ name.

 

Lord, keep Gayle’s granddaughter from being a distraction to the tutored teen. Enable him to concentrate as if she were not there. Strengthen Gayle and Earl to tutor an additional student. In Jesus’ name.

 

Lord, send ministerial types and strong leaders to the church that Gayle and Earl attend so that there will be a more balanced ratio between ministers and laypeople. Take control about Gayle’s physical and the strategy for handling any results that might need further treatment. In Jesus’ name.

 

Gayle, maybe you could tell the office staff that you won’t be able to follow up on any medical problems they might find, and see what their response is. Find out what they would suggest, while you place it at the Lord’s feet.

Amen.  And thank you for the prayers.  Yes, that is confirmation of what I'd planned.  Thank you.

We dropped down again in numbers this week at church.  But the teen-group is stable.  The seven of us took a prayer walk around the church together then we came in and brainstormed on what we believed we should pray for as individuals and as a group in terms of the church.  We came up with a list of seven things. We also are going to begin training the teens in evangelism.  I'm unsure to be honest whether our granddaughter knows the Lord. We have some concerns.  Thank you for your concern and prayers.  Thank you.  - - Gayle

 Gayle, I heartily approve of the prayerwalking. Not enough of that is done. The stability of the teen group is the future core of your church. Evangelistic training for the youth is a super idea because it has been prophesied that the youth will rise up as good examples to peers, families, and adults.

Lord, lead Gayle’s granddaughter to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ through Your Holy Spirit. Convict her spirit of her role in Your Kingdom. In Jesus’ name.

Thank you, Donna.

The legal team is still back and forth with management at our daughter's work. I find this so incredible. They're back to waffling, it seems. I think there is some real fear in proceeding.  Thank you so much for your prayers.  - - Gayle
