We are really encouraged with what God is doing in our church! I want to highlight a few things. First, there is an obvious increase in spiritual awareness. This is felt throughout the whole body. One evidence of that is that, is a renewed desire for prayer and worship which has led to to some spontaneous gatherings of members to sing and pray.
In addition, we continue to see our Wednesday evening prayer meeting grow. It obvious. It has more than doubled (perhaps tripled) since the start 3 weeks ago. In short, there is a new hunger and vitality, for which we are exceedingly grateful to God.
Pray that this will be sustained and even increased. If you never come >> Join us and see!
We are aware of several marriages that are experiencing healing and increased intimacy as a result of this prayer and fasting season. A sister stopped me last week to tell me how amazed she is at the spiritual hunger in her husbands heart.
I just left two teenage young men in the church who spent 4 hours today reading the Bible and praying together. Incredible!
Another man, called PT last night and wanted to talk about his conversion and his desire to be baptized.
PT, received encouraging and refreshing news from the Cleveland clinic about his condition. You can read that update here: https://goo.gl/sPSbas
And then I just got word this morning of another set of people in the church that have met to reconcile fractured and strained relationships with others in the body.
Friends, this is not routine. God is at work! There is no doubt this is a direct result of a more focused and intense pursuit of God over the last three weeks. And it just shows the importance of planning seasons of prayer and fasting like this to "reset" and "recalibrate" as a church. So God bless you for throwing yourself into this!
Finally some links and resources. Here are the last 3 prayer meetings online:

Let's continue to go hard. Sunday will be our last day of the 21 day fast. If some of you want to beak fast together on Sunday evening over fellowship and informal prayer and worship, we would encourage you to do so! Go ahead and make plans accordingly.
