As we continue to walk out the command and promise to UNLEASH THE HOPE that God confirmed during the Global Prayer Summit, we are blessed to be moving into an exciting time of ministry from the Middle East to Africa. We know that God is going to do something powerful in the Middle East.

We begin In Israel with Pastor Wendell Cover and pastors from the Potomac Ministry Network. Pray that God will provide open doors. In addition, we plan to visit TC and House of Deliverance. From there, we will head to Lebanon and the border settlements of the Bekaa Valley to minister to Syrian and Iraqi refugees with brother Garo and Teen Challenge Lebanon.

Every day, miracles happen at TC centers around the world. Miracles are not a result of human excellence, but God's mercy and grace.


Thank you to the silent champions, so many of you praying for Teen Challenge. These are your miracles for God's glory.

For the those that were unable to join us for the Teen Challenge Prayer Summit, We have posted the video streams of the praise and worship, as well as some of the teaching highlights from Dr. Nance, Gary Wilkerson and others, online. The 2017 Livestream is now on You Tube!
All 7 videos are compiled in a playlist here.

LEBANON BEKAA VALLEY
This is a strategic time to minister to the needs of M-sl-ms worldwide. They are one of the greatest unreached people groups in the world with one missionary for every million M-sl-ms. Rather than arguing over doctrine and branding people, this is an hour to share the love of Jesus Christ.

Hearts and doors are open. Even the Qur’an, because of its references to Jesus and the Word of God, raises curiosity in the hearts of many. In many camps, with so much free time, so many drugs, along with a sense of
abandonment by I-sl-m, they are seeking asnwers.
Brother Garo & the team from Teen Challenge Lebanon put together a busy schedule, from the street to camps, to church to a major cultural Festival in Beirut and possibly some prisons. It was amazing to connect again with a dear friend, Esther, who was part of our ministry team at Lighthouse Worship Center in Gloucester. She is now serving in Lebanon. Pray for favor as we have the opportunity to minister to people in need from Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Jordan over these next weeks .
Due to the sensitive nature of places we will visit, we are unable to give any additional details, We do covet your prayers. Many are seeking something more than a slim chance of escaping hell by hanging onto a slender hope of their own goodness. The grace of God cries out, "It's not your struggle to be good, but the sacrifice of Jesus is enough!" Please pray that many will receive God's amazing love.

UNLEASH the HOPE

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."

Matt 28:16-20.

Bern


It is obedience to Go, not emotion, intent or desire, that will Unleash the Hope. The Great Commission, offered us heaven's greatest mission but it often becomes our greatest omission.

Satan's tactic is not always frontal attack. One of his great strategies is distraction. Satan's WMD is often not a weapon of mass destruction but a weapon of mass distraction. The Great Commission was not a suggestion; it was a command. You don't have to be perfect to qualify. Jesus gave this message to a mixed crowd (vs17- some worshiped, some doubted), and it all started with seeing Jesus.

Teen Challenge, (originally Teen Evangelism) was birthed in prayer in 1958, not with the intent to be a drug program, but with a heart to reach out to the lost. What began as a gang outreach with violent youth, progressed through supernatural evolution, bringing the gospel to bear on critical needs of the times.

Never forget, it is God that has sent you
. Evangelism is not your idea, it is God’s command. It all starts as we embrace God’s unlimited power. This power is released in prayer. All true evangelism starts on the foundation of the authority of Jesus Christ.

Jesus said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me!’ He reminds us of God’s unlimited power. From that, flows the greatest mission, His command, ‘Go, therefore…’ This is God’s unchanging plan. (vs 19).

God’s wants to use you. It is HIM at the center, not your strength. Stiil, the gift of God's love comes wrapped in you! The real presentation of the gospel is through your life and testimony. I pray the Holy Spirit will remind us, when we feel weak, that the command crescendos with God’s unfailing promise ‘I am with you always.’ (vs 20)

When David Wilkerson prayed on Feb 9, 1958, he had no idea the miracles God was about to unleash. From the courtroom, to Nicky Cruz, to reaching those who were bound in addiction and now worldwide to addicts, victims of human trafficking and HIV in 120 nations, God still moves through evangelism.


The early church did not pray for safety; they prayed for boldness. May God grant us the boldness, to go.

Matthew 9:37-38 “Then He said to His disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.’"

In partnership with Teen Challenge, the Arise Worship Internship in Kentucky has an intense 8-week program that will raise up the gifting God has put in TC students to equip them to lead others into His presence more effectively. Their personal relationship with God is of utmost importance, and we also believe that they should flow in excellence in all that they do, leading both spiritually by life style AND in music!

PHILIPPINES UPDATE

It is exciting to report that Jim Lowans and the Asia Pacific Team continue to move forward. Thank you for all who have been praying for the Philippines since President Duterte launched his brutal war on drugs and the humanitarian crisis that has following with over 6,000 extra-judicial executions.

While there is a vision to move toward residential treatment and care, Jim Lowans, in consultation with indigenous leadership, has put the focus on equipping churches to care for the addicts in their areas of influence through the LIVING FREE program. Gregg Fischer and Tim Hanson will travel to the Islands to provide resources for the local church to minister to over one million addicts that have turned themselves in, fearing for their lives.

They will do training in six cities - Baguio City . Cebu City . Butuan City . Manila . Kalibo City . Daevao City. from March 13-21. Please click the poster for details and follow up if you would like to attend.
