Hello brothers and sisters and Heartdwellers family.
We have been called to do another mission trip to meet our Heartdwellers family in China. The Lord made this clear several months ago, and I was excited but wondering exactly what we would be doing there, because we know the nation is against any form of religion and Christians are severely persecuted there.
So I wasn’t sure how we would meet other people or what ministry there would look like. One of the sisters told us they had been praying a rosary for us every day since last year asking the Lord to help us make it there to them. With all the other responsibilities, our engagement and trials I faced here a few months ago, I had put this trip a bit on the back burner. The Lord reminded me today in prayer to go ahead and purchase the tickets that we must leave soon. I checked the tickets prices and I gulped because we didn’t have enough at all.
Also with so many needs arising and also raising funds soon to meet the needs of others, I was wondering if this trip would be at all possible even this year. However, speaking to one of the sisters today, she reminded me by sending me a message one of the brothers got in prayer and the expectation of our arrival and what God intends to do and how they have been anticipating this for so long. During prayer, the Lord continues to play songs of courage, hope and great faith in what He wants to do and is going to do.
So, I looked at Jesus as I always do saying: Lord, if you want us to go than you have to make this happen. We don’t have it but I know we will because this is Your mission trip so I leave it in Your hands for provision.
After receiving Jesus, I then had a vision of a small group of us, like the disciples in the upper-room, and the spirit of God was moving. My heart leaped with joy as I felt that is what the Lord wanted to do in China.
I then heard Jesus began to speak –
“I am sending you as sheep among wolves. Stay encouraged, hopeful and in anticipation for what I will do in that place. It will be like the days of Pentecost, when My disciples gathering in the upper room for the outpouring of My spirit. I have been saying that little one, but you are not taking My words to heart. There it will begin, among the little and lowly who have been thirsting and hungering after Me and My presence. There they will receive the fire of My love to consume all that is in them that is not of Me and receive many spiritual gifts and blessings.
“I am sending you as an Apostle of My love to equip, strengthen, train and teach these little ones. Small but mighty they are, in a land filled with much darkness, much persecution and much restriction; but they cannot restrict the move of My Spirit, He is power itself and God unlimited. Do you remember the days you spent watching the documentary about Chinas underground church and how your heart burned with love for your brethren, inspired by their sacrifice, and moved to tears because of their suffering? How your heart burned to be on fire as they were and to bring encouragement to them? Well, this is your opportunity My beloved little one.
“I always write straight with crooked lines and nothing happens by coincidence. You have pondered and wondered of My intention in sending you there and things will get more clear as the time draws neare, and even when you arrive. I will also use Father Derrick in a very powerful way, as his prophetic gifts begin to flourish and healing will take place. Pray for unity among you all. Pray for protection for those souls as they have been praying for you and pray that hearts will be prepared and ready to receive all that I have to give them.
“Your best posture of preparation, which you already know My love, is adoration. No need to worry, inquire knowledge or seek to understand anything but one thing alone – the goodness of My merciful heart before the Blessed Sacrament. And all else will be added to you, to this trip, and to the group you are going there to minister to. They are dearly loved by Me, known by Me and heard before all of Heaven. When they pray humbly My will, I will answer. A great light has risen within the red dragon, and this is only the beginning of latter things to come.”
And that was the end of Jesus’ message.
In the comments below, I will have the link to the Chinese underground church documentary. It’s a 7 part series about 10 minutes each, it is so worth the watch. I encourage everyone to take some time to watch this, you will be greatly inspired and moved by their dedication, their suffering, their sacrifice and their love for Jesus. It brought me to weeping tears when I first watched it and my heart burned within me to want that passion for the Lord as they have it.
Also, keep us in mind – with majority of our donations being used to helping others, our funds are low to purchase a ticket and we need to do it as soon as possible as the prices are going up weekly. Each ticket is about $1,809. Father Derrick and I will be going so we are in need of about $3,618 for the ticket in total. Any donation amount would be greatly appreciated, and we could also use donations to brings gifts for them, like holy books, rhema cards that they don’t have access to there. As we give to them freely from our loving family to theirs, from Jesus with love.
Thank you family. You can donate via PayPal, or directly to the HDA bank account – information is below. May God richly bless each of you. And please be praying for us, praying for them and praying for this trip!
