In Indonesia… Heaven opened up and displayed the Glory of God while angels descended worshiping Jesus with us and ministering to us. The blind eyes of people were opened, cancer left people’s bodies, one person received a new liver, many restorations to people’s health conditions!
We had a barbecue for the poor who lived in the cemetery, visited people who were living in the garbage dumps and lifted them up to now live among the princes of His people. We visited a leper colony, which we later renamed “Indah Glory Village”. There we joined in worship at the church, played with the beautiful children, and kissed away the people’s leprosy!! JOY JOY!!
I learned to speak bahasa Indonesia much better than before, enjoyed 3 marvelous days on the beach of Bali and swam in the Indian Ocean for the first time, rode a motor scooter all through the insane Bali nightlife, and stayed in 5 star hotels and at a beach resort even but still managed to dig into the realities of Indonesia’s ‘working class’ people where I made many friends.
The amazing local servants of God joined with us in demonstrating the Kingdom of Heaven to the lost, broken, hurting, and dying world. The Jesus lovers we met there are radical for Him and are living in God’s presence under 24/7 open Heaven. They have become my forever friends from Surabaya, Jakarta, and Bali.
Also made many new forever friends from Australia and the US who are such truly amazing Jesus lovers too! We all witnessed so many signs, wonders, and miracles! We all experienced Joy unspeakable!
We all drank and stayed wasted off the new wine of Heaven – the blood of Jesus!!
His love is better than wine shhhaaakkkkkkkaa!!!
THANK YOU JESUS

“58 and feeling great!”
Those were the words of my dear dad when I called to check on his birthday experience. He also shared with me that he can now get his boots back on, which means that he’s recovered from some recent ‘bangs ups’ out there on the road! Just shy of turning 58 years of age, this wild cowboy was recently participating once more as a contestant after many years of retirement. He says he may have finally rode his last… but I certianly won’t be betting on it. As Garth Brook sang, “he just can’t quit this thang they call a rodeo!” LOL
Since he’s out there on the road traveling, he celebrated his birthday with no family around. That certianly didn’t stop this cowboy from having fun though! He took himself out bowling and to play some pool, two of his other favorite activities. Because of the Joy of Jesus he’s often cheerful no matter what, but I know he would have enjoyed showing me up on the pool table if I could have been there and that he missed all of his children today.
When I called, he was on his way to get ready (in prayer) to minister at yet another rodeo. Yes, my dad is a “travelin’ rodeo preacher man” , and a wonderful one at that. I’m very grateful to have a God-loving and God-fearing father who taught me all about Jesus. I miss him, as it’s been a year now since I’ve last visited him (for his birthday), just before I moved even farther away. LOL It reminds me, how I can’t wait till I get back to Texas… Yeeehaaaaww!!!
I leave you to enJOY these AWESOME messages from my amazing Dad:

Check out my brother and his wife, Jared and Amy Christian on
doing an interview about ‘couch surfing’ and using www.couchsurfing.com as a practical travel tool for aquiring alternative sleep/housing accomodations. As you will see in the interview, they plan on using couchsurfing.com while on their world wide travel adventures. They will actually be living in 12 different countries and spending one month in each over the course of their travels!
More interesting info about their mission trip and involvement with the World Race can be found here:

It’s an amazing time for the world as Israel celebrates it’s 60th year since declaring itself an independent state on 14 May 1948! (you can read more of this event as reported by the BCC.)
I’M GOING TO ISRAEL!
Yes! I’m really going to Israel… I will be leaving on May 11th, Mother’s Day and arrive on May 12th, the prophesied time the Holy Spirit told me that I would be there! …exactly one year from the day He told me as well. It’s taken a miracle to get me there and I won’t be surprised if it will take one to get me back 🙂 Thank you Jesus!
Pray for my safety, for angels to travel with me, and for nothing to get in the way of the divine appointments ahead.
