Puerto Rico on the street.
After an amazing trip to the Philippines, I headed south to Bayamón, Puerto Rico. Working with Dr. Rodney Hart and his team, we ministered in spiritual impact services at the centers and headed to the street to minister to the needs of hard-core addicts in the streets, shooting galleries, and crack houses of Bayamón. God moved in an amazing way. Working with TCPR graduates, some that sold drugs on these corners, nearly dead, now we came with a message of hope, promise and freedom.
I was so blessed by the ministry of David Hernandez & Javier, as well as my friend Rudiger Exner who accompanied me to the streets.

When they saw these Teen Challenge graduates, once broken and some who sold and abused drugs on these same mean streets and barrios, hope was born. When they saw them with a healthy body, vibrant spirit and anointed message, HOPE was released in addicts on the street. As we ministered to the man above, the smell of the rotting flesh on one of his legs, (the result of injecting heroin and cocaine), was so pungent that we knew we had to do something. We went to a pharmacy to get supplies to begin to clean his wounds.
YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE WHAT WE SAW!
The photo album to the right tells some of the story. As we knelt in the mud, and the rain to clean this man's wounds, other addicts began to line up and say "Can you please care for me?" Much as Jesus once knelt in filth to set me free from sin, we saw God touch these addicts as we ministered. Pictures in this album are extremely graphic but will take you to a whole new level of compassion to pray for these desperately needy men and women.
We are praying to break the stronghold that traps these men & women in its death-grip. Only God can set the captive free and release lasting change.
 
Puerto Rico Teen Challenge
We joined Dr. Hart and the Puerto Rico leadership team, Ivelisse, Brian Poirier & Miguel Canaan and team as they hosted a meeting of a local coalition they are bringing together--community leaders, social workers, faith-based ministries, prison workers and the police. We were joined by an amazing Teen Challenge graduate Henry Lozano from the Federal Office of Faith Based Initiatives. It was an amazing time.


I pray God is blessing your Christmas season. Please take a moment to view this powerful 3 minute video we made.

In the gift of the incarnation, Jesus left the timelessness of eternity and divinity to wrap himself with humanity. In my finite human understanding, I cannot even begin to comprehend the cost of His sacrifice.

Have a Supernatural, not a Superficial Christmas
E-Votion

For Unto Us A child is Born, Unto us, a son is given..
Is 9:6

Isaiah gives us a wonderful picture of the promise of Christmas in this passage prophetically looking toward the birth of Messiah
Bern

It is important that we not become so focused on the urgency of culture, gift chasing, gift getting, and gift giving, that we miss the real Gift.

For unto us a child is born. A son is given.

This points to two significant aspects of the coming of Jesus Christ. First, a child is born. Eternity came into time as God supernaturally endued humanity with deity. The mystery of Jesus Christ - God totally God yet man totally man. God has come.

That is why I shared my Incarnation video. While our culture points to sentiment and feelings, the center of the season is not emotion, it is E-mmanuel, God with us.

He came not in the halls of power, to the political powerful, nor to halls of religion, the aristocrats or intellectually elite. He was born shackled with society's accusation that He was only the illegitimate child of a homeless, peasant family born in a barn.

All of God's power was poured into all of the limitations of a tiny baby. How could the One who once created and ruled the world now suddenly be found so defenseless. Is there anything more vulnerable than a tiny baby born in an animal's feeding trough? Yet He chose that because of us. For unto us a child is born!

At the same time, a son is given. While there may have been a baby born 2000 years ago, Jesus always was, always is and always will be. As much as I love it when my grandchildren sing "Happy Birthday, Jesus, " I want them to understand that ... in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God… Jesus is that Word that was and is, and is to come.

God has spoken, God has come, God has entered my world with a promise that His son will grant me access into His Kingdom forever.

That is Christmas!
