City of God Community Building Update

Hello brothers and sisters and Heartdwellers family.

This is just a quick video update on the Phase 1 Building of the City of God Community. Thank you so much for all who have donated and for those who have supported with your prayers and words of encouragement. Each one is greatly appreciated.  

Just to give you an update so far we have raised £1,218 of the $19,300 we need, which is a wonderful blessing! In total we have now $2,300 and we are just shy of $1,500 to finish the surveying of the land.  We have had some changes with Sister Ruth coming to Ghana, some good changes, and felt led by the Lord to wait until we get the land surveyed and began clearing before we bring any more souls here to help since we haven’t started building yet.  

We get a large some of donation in the beginning of each month and initially we felt maybe it was time to focus our attention on putting the majority of the donations towards the building of the City of God because in that case, we can get things done within three months – but we discerned the Lord didn’t want it that way at all. He wanted us giving out money to the 20 people and organizations we support each month, and anyone else who was in need. Which leaves us scraping by again every month, after our donations go out.  

I often remember a scene in Mother Teresa’s movie where donations came and she had a box of receipts that had certain needs and organizations written on it. She really wanted to began building the City of Peace, but after allocating all the donations to the needs in the box she had nothing left again to begin this project the Lord told her to build. The sisters and Her father were getting weary about this, and she looked at them and shrugged saying: well, I guess Jesus is not in a hurry. I chuckle when I think of that, as I scratch my head sometimes wondering: Lord, are we doing the right thing by giving out everything first? Because I know the City of God community is Your will, we just need provision. And I remember the scene and think: Lord, I know You told me to do this, but You don’t seem in a hurry, so maybe I shouldn’t be (laughs)  

Either way family, we are hoping to have some part of the first phase started at least before the end of the year, God willing. I have been in Ghana for almost a year now and I realize I wanted to start building the community but the Lord wanted to build my foundation in this marriage so we would be solid, steadfast and united in His will. And we are on the road to that in the most beautiful way. Thank you for your prayers. As Father Derrick has been led by the Lord to start farming, in order to be equipped to farm on the City of God land.  

We have been gifted quite a few acres of land that’s already cleared and ready to go, from a friend of his. Who will allow us to farm on the land then use the harvest we yield to help pay for the City of God community land clearing. However, even that cost money to get some machines and seedlings etc., which we do not have right now.   

So family, continue to think of us, pray for us and donate whatever amount you can. It will be greatly appreciated to help with the From Jesus with Love outreach every week and also to help jump start the farming and surveying of the land. The next time we go to the farm land will have some pictures and videos for you guys.

God bless you family, until the next message

From Jesus With Love

My Name Is Mary Elisha I started this blog 6 years ago on my journey walking with Jesus and never knew all that he had in store for me. It has been a journey of tears, trust and confidence in him. Knowing that He is my loving spouse and he wouldn't lead me astray however he has given many suprises along the way! lol Upon fully surrendering my life to Jesus, he has completely turn my world right side up. Filled me with his spirit and showed himself in supernatural ways. He has completely left me in awe leaving me with the thought.....(as most Holy Spirit filled followers of Christ also say) why didn't I surrender 15 years ago! lol. When I started this blog I was a 30 years old zealous for the Lord and desiring to make his love known because it tranformed my life. However, I didn't know the way and the road in which he would take me. It is the way of the cross, the way of holiness and the way of love. Living a life seperated from the world and compltely concecrated to him. I no longer belong to myself, but to him as he has led me to a life of hiddeness and deep intimacy I didn't know was so avalialble for all who would make their lives, their hearts his home. He has given me a new name, a renewed purpose and a heavenly family who is so very present and so real to me. Saints who cheer me on, give me council and pray for me everyday to ensure I do the Lords will and the greatest gift of all He has led me to his Mother! Who has always been My Mother just never knew it. I love Mother Mary, she is my heart, my friend and confidant and continues to prepare me to a worthy bride to her son, Jesus. It is she, who has handpicked me for this mission and to run the community "City of God: Sacred Heart Refuge" in Ghana, West Africa. This is her mission and her ministry as a gift to Jesus and I just get to be her handmaiden. Heartdwellers Ghana is an extention of Heartdwellers ministry by Mother Clare and Father Ezekiel from Still Small Voice Channel. Jesus has taught us about divine intimacy with him. As we dwell in his heart, He and the Father come to make their home within us. (John Where Jesus is all of heaven is as well because the kingom of God is within. So here may you come to get fresh manna from Jesus and any ther saints who may want to give us council, encouragment and exhortation that we may finish this race of faith and run to win the prize. To be a bride spotless, blameless adorened with purity, carying the fire of charity and zeal for our fathers glory. That we maybe ready for him when He comes back for us. Our Lord, Jesus Christ is amazing the intimate you become with him the more in awe he leaves you. I hope this blog draws you nearer to our Lord and you began to open the ears and the eyes of your heart to all that he has to say to you and show you. All of these messages are from Jesus with you. May you be blessed by his words of life. God bless you!
