This power is to become a witness so others can be transformed. We are seeing neighborhoods totally shaken for Jesus. The Word has taken root for souls and eternity, so when I see someone, I always wonder where that person will spend eternity?
Also, in the area of finances I can see a big change as the Word is going forth and my spirit grabs the principles being taught. My wife and I were sitting in a meeting at The River Church, and we felt to get out of debt after hearing the Word that day. As we continued to declare the Word of God out of our mouths, and trust His Word, we continued to see the hand of the Lord eliminate our debts. Today we are totally debt free.
I cannot emphasize how blessed I am to be a part of this ministry; It’s a privilege and an honor.
I not only have my grandmother’s name to uphold and honor but above all names I am an ambassador that represents the name of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I never knew before such anointing of the Holy Spirit as I have experienced this past few months here at the River Church. Everywhere I go, I feel the Holy Spirit leading me to lead others to Jesus Christ. God is bigger than anything I face…. For instance, just a couple of weeks ago I had forgotten my brand new $500.00 cell phone at the gas pump and drove off without it. I immediately told the Lord that it is not my cell phone, but I was only a servant over it, as it is God’s property which I mainly use it for Bible school. After about 4 1/2 hrs later, I realized where I had forgotten my cell phone.
My wife and came here from Finland to spend a second year at RBI. During the first year we didn’t have much. We shared an apartment with two other students and we usually walked to school. That was four years ago. This time God has blessed us more than enough!!! Before we came from Finland, we agreed to switch cars with two Finnish River members, who went to Finland to minister for 9 months. Then a friend of ours received us to her home until we can find a permanent solution. After one week I got a part-time position at the IT department of RMI, which made it possible for us to live in our own apartment this time!
We are so grateful for that! Then when we talked with some friends of ours, they told us that they are starting a traveling ministry and that they are selling all their furniture! So now we’ve got all the furniture we need also! God is so good 🙂 We are so thankful to God that we can be part of a church that is full of the fire of God and whose focus is souls! There are not many that kind of churches in Finland at the moment. Here we can both receive from God and serve Him, and be part of the Great Awakening! This is really an oasis for us!! We feel that God called us here to get refreshed, get full of the word and the fire of God and then be launched to our destiny…..
