Dear Friends,Your prayers keep taking us to unexpected places that make me wonder how we got there. Although difficult, the more I choose to be forgiving and live unwounded, the more I notice God's favor increasing in my life, family and ministry. Recently, I was invited by Ruth Williard, Founder of KEY Fellowship "Kingdom Empowering You" to join her at a gathering in our city of Hagerstown, Maryland. This ministry travels with strong intercessors far and near to certain cities, as
the Spirit leads, to ignite the fire of God's presence. Our city was on their schedule. On Thursday evening many pastors, leaders and intercessors met together to worship and rally the troops to go forward in this season of war.Sister Ruth asked me to share the vision I had for our city of Hagerstown that witnessed strongly to our Mayor, Tekesha Ann Martinez. (click

igniting our city and region. ( see photo below. ) A story was told that when Chuck Pierce was a small child, his family raised race horses. Chuck had a gift for picking winning horses. In one particular race, the jockey didn't show up for the horse that was favored to win, so Chuck's father made Chuck's brother, who was short and lightweight, get on the horse at the last minute. Having only ridden broken-down farm horses and never on a race horse, terror struck him as it took
off. Not knowing anything about the reins of a race horse, he grabbed hold of the horse's mane, screaming for dear life. That horse overtook the others and won! What a lesson for us to let go of our control of things and hold on to God alone for victory. At the end of last Thursday's gathering the Lord made it clear that we must keep worshiping Him regardless of what we face in life. What a night of incredible empowerment to keep marching on to
war... because we win! Again this morning, I received another invitation to meet with our Mayor. She said she wants to share with me how prayers are being answered from the first time we met. As my last newsletter was titled, "Love Wins!"... I believe offenses may come to promote us if we choose to forgive and love unconditionally.
