I was all set for a week of meetings, phone calls and emails, as well as gathering info and preparing for a trip to see my team overseas.
Enter altered plans. Within two days, I was back on the road again, not understanding how the Lord was leading with this last minute trip, but sensing God was directing me to something significant. I entreated the Lord for wisdom for what was to come.
I learned that a dear family member had been under direct demonic attack for several years and now the attacks were being manifested openly. Hours passed as I listened to the last several years unfold before me. It became clear that God had brought me to this family to be a listening ear, someone to cry with and someone to join with them in dedicated prayer.
Five days and 2,000 miles later, I returned home, tired and overwhelmed with the magnitude of conversations lasting hours into the night and prayer sessions for deliverance from demonic forces.
Once again, I sat down and began to ponder, but this time there was no thought of, Why am I here? or Why am I doing what I am doing? Instead, I was amazed. Wow, God! I thought I knew what I needed to do these last five days, but was I wrong.
As I learn what it means to be a field director, God reminds me that I am still a missionary. I have been called to mentor, lead, disciple, supervise and serve my team overseas, but I have also been called to be ready at all times for divine appointments, even right here where I am.
“Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it,’ whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left” (Isaiah 30:21).
The enemy is attacking and destroying. We have the privilege to work with God on behalf of the oppressed. Because of you, people who are lost and hurting can find comfort, peace and salvation in Jesus Christ. Thank you for your continued prayers and support.
