Dear Point To Hope Friends,
Wow! Much has happened since the last PTH post (9/6). But first let me mention the upcoming Point To Hope Holy Spirit Encounter Conference. (And it is FREE!)
Oct. 25-27, 2018 (Thurs.-Sat.)
The River Family Christian Center
19025 St. Rt 339
Waterford, Ohio 45786
Schedule: (see website for more details www.pointtohope.org)
7:00 PM: Evening Sessions (Thurs, Fri., & Sat.)
Friday & Saturday:
8:30: Prayer (Nancy brings a ‘fresh manna’ message for the area)
10:30, 1:30 & 3:30: Workshop Sessions
This will be the last conference of the year with the theme “2018 Redemptive Bondage.” And, amazingly, this will also be the 50th PTH Holy Spirit Encounter Conference held since the Lord directed Nancy to have “Holy Spirit Encounter” conferences. Themes have changed through the years, but the Lord said the title: “Holy Spirit Encounter” will be the same. These conferences are just that, A Holy Spirit Encounter. And once you have an encounter with Holy Spirit, you are never the same!
All are invited! “But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind,” (Luke 14:13).
* Please see the end of this report for important prayer target information!
At the end of September, PTH held a Holy Spirit Encounter in Ketchikan, Alaska. The 49th PTH Conference held and in the 49th state – Go God!
Personally, two words that describe the PTH Conferences are: Meat and Meet.
“Meat’ of the Word is served at the PTH Conferences. The workshop titles are like choice-cuts set before each one. People shared so many testimonies about how their encounter with the Holy Spirit brought redemption and healing: body, soul, and spirit. I just heard one report of an individual who could barely walk at the conference. People laid hands on this person and prayed for healing. After returning home and going to the doctor, the MRI showed the vertebrae completely healed. “And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up,” (James 5:15a). Go God!
And that is just one of the many testimonies! It was a ‘Meeting” place … a place where new relationships were established and former ones reunited on common ground – Jesus Christ! Jesus was all about relationships!
Prior to the Ketchikan conference, Debbie Anderes, Nancy Haney, and myself (Sarah) met in Juneau, Alaska (capital) to once again pray and repent. If you remember, the Lord told Nancy every time she stands at a capitol building, those prayers will effect all the previous capitols / parliaments as well. I’m not sure how many times we have revisited our own state capitol, but the Lord did remind Nancy again … when you touch the door handles of the capitol, a spiritual antibiotic of healing is released for all the capitols. “Is any sick among you?” (James 5:14a/KJV). Do we not have a nation(s) in need of healing?
We stood on the steps of the capitol on September 20. When repentance is offered to the Lord, it makes way for His LIGHT to shine in the darkness … and the darkness cannot hide; cannot comprehend it (John chapter 1).
While in Ketchikan, we also gathered together some local PTH leaders and prayed throughout the city at some very key places. We were also blessed to prayer for some key individuals; people who God has placed in various places of authority over the city. Go God!
And now, back to Ohio:
Nancy and I have been in Ohio since Oct.5, joining with Ute Looney. Thank you for your powerful prayers on behalf of PTH.
We have had a full ministry schedule and each meeting is different in some way. People have different needs, yet God meets each one right where they are! Freedom in the ‘house’ and Nancy has been able to prophesy and bring Hope where hope was lost.
Please continue to pray for strength and healing for Nancy, and the PTH team. The conference is very soon and many are traveling from out of town. We so appreciate your prayers of protection and strength!
Prayer Target for October: Health & Healing
Each month, I will announce a new prayer focus. One key to “On earth as it is in Heaven” is to pray the scripture and do it in agreement. His Word is powerful, even the smallest letter / the least stroke of a pen, will not fail to come to completion according to His Word. And how pleasing to the Father when His children are in unity! The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, seeing both good and evil. He is looking to perform His Word!
Grab you spouses or friends for prayers of agreement; call, text / e-mail. Pull on the heart strings of the Lord with a corporate shout of praise for the good things He has done and will do!
“For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished,” (Matt. 5:18).
“Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven,” (Matt. 18:19).
For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him, (2 Chronicles 16:9a/NKJV).
“The eyes of the LORD are in every place, Watching the evil and the good,” (Proverbs 15:3).
Think yourself not a preacher or a singer? You are! Who will speak / sing forth His Word in one glorious song?
Join with PTH in prayers of agreement, declaring the Word of God.
Health & Healing for:
loved ones, families,
And most assuredly, pray for the Health & Healing for America; God’s will be done for His Glory!
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places,” (Eph. 6:12).
When the wrestling match is over, we know who is the victor! Stand firm, brothers and sisters. We win!
Elisha was a praying man, but when the ax head fell in the water, Elisha didn’t pray – He acted! And the ax head floated to the surface! (2 Kings 6:6-7).
As the Lord has told Nancy before, He loves America! Shall we not too, love what the Lord loves? God has a plan for America, but we must do our part …. ‘do the act’ at the voting booth! Raise the ax!
Blessings to all!
