"Tychicus will tell you everything." Ephesians 6:21

I love my job!

In the last 5 weeks I have ministered in 5 different states, from the warmth of Florida to the snow in Idaho.  But the physical environment is 20160223_205506not the part that excites me the most.  The best part is the spiritual environment.  Being with pastors, missionaries, “regular folks” who love Jesus and want to press in to a deeper relationship with Him never gets old to me.

Here is a shot of pastors from The Dalles, OR caring for their pastor friends from Grays Harbor, WA, by praying for them.

Along the way, I get to hear lots of great stories.  Here is one from a recent Prayer Summit.  One of the first thing I did with the 30 or so people sitting in a circle was to ask them “What do you want from Jesus?”  I referenced the place in Matthew where A leper came to Jesus and said, “If you are willing, You can heal me!”  Jesus said, “I am willing” and He did heal the man.  Then I asked them, “What would you like to ask Jesus to do during these 3 days away?  He just might want to do that!”

When we got around to Don, he said, “When you were here 4 years ago, you asked a similar question.  Because I had recently been in a very serious accident, and my body was in constant pain, I said I wanted Jesus to heal me, to remove the pain.  You asked 5 guys to gather around me and pray for me.  They did, and ten minutes later the pain left and it has not returned!  When I told this to the people of my congregation, they rejoiced with me, but kept asking me if the pain had come back.  Finally, I told them, no…  when you are healed, you are healed!”

We laughed and rejoiced!

Thank you, Tychicus
