EMPOWERED21

This wonderful conference, being held here in Tulsa, Oklahoma, began last night, April 8th at 7 p.m. It will last through Saturday, April 10th. We have had our reservations since November of last year.

Last night Wantha Ann & I attended. Mickey is still not quite up to par strength wise so he stayed home. It was absolutely awesome!!!!! The Mabee Center was packed. The service began with wonderful praise & worship and then 9 people came on stage and each prayed a one minute prayer. BUT, each prayer was in a different language: Hebrew, Greek, Italian, (missed getting this 4th one down - definitely European), Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, Arabic & English. Southern English as they said because it was given by Billye Brim!!! It was such a wonderful experience to hear. The Arabic man actually had tears running down his cheeks as he finished praying. Then the entire auditorium, thousands and thousands of us all prayed, in various languages and in tongues. What an experience to be in the midst of this. At one point I was silent and listened to the wonderful sound!!!!!

The focus this night was PURITY. There were 3 speakers: Joyce Rodgers, Timothy Ross & Joel Stockstill. Purity is a subject we don't hear a lot of preaching on these days but it is something that needs to be preached. Jesus is coming back for a PURE Bride!!! All 3 speakers were moving but the 3rd, Tim Ross was dynamic. He is from The Potter's House and had a glorious testimony of the power of The Holy Spirit in transforming his life. When he gave the altar call THOUSANDS went forward and the majority of them were under the age of 30. They just kept coming and coming. Praise God!!!

Mickey & I will be picking up Wantha Ann and the three of us will be spending ALL day and night at the conference today. The day is filled with different 'Learning Conversations" of hundreds of topics. The three I've chosen for today are: 10:45 a.m. "Understanding the Times Through the Prophetic" by Chuck Pierce; 2:00 p.m. "Ears to Hear (Hearing God's Voice through the Noise of Culture) by Jerry Dirmann and Kelly Fellows; 3:30 p.m. "Spirit-Filled Publishing and Writing in the 21st Century" by Ken Horn. There are so many topics to choose from it's hard to pick.

The focus tonight will be PASSION. The 7:00 p.m. service features Ron Luce, of Teen Mania Ministries - Lou Engle of TheCall - & Jentezen Franklin. Hearing any one of these would be a blessing and dynamic but getting to hear all three in one evening will be overwhelming!!!!

I haven't even had time to look at the program of sessions and pick them out for tomorrow!!! But, be assured I will :o)

People are here from ALL OVER THE WORLD. Many nations represented from 5 continents. It is wonderful beyond words. Wish you were all able to be here. Can you tell I'm excited? I AM & VERY, VERY BLESSED to be able to be a part of this history making moment in The Holy Spirit.

I know I've been scarce in following your posts but there are just so many hours in the day and mine have been packed beyond packed!!!

I got to watch it live on daystar last night. The worship was awesome. It touched me that the prayer started with Hebrew and the man that prayed in Arabic was so touching. It came from his heart you could tell.

Anyone that wants to watch can do so on daystar TV or daystar website.

I'm sorry to hear that your husband wasn't up to par. I hope he feels better today. I wonder if you're familiar with the book "Do Hard Things". It's excellent for our youth and also for people of all ages. :)

Susan, it sounds fabulous. Hearing prayers in other languages touches me like nothing else. It touches the heart of God, I just know it! Have a wonderful and safe time. Blessings to you, and continued prayers for Mickey.

Thanks for the update Susan! Hope Mickey is feeling better. It has been 30+ years since I have been to the Mabee Center - saw Oral there way back then. Hope you are having a great time!

I certainly wish I could be there too, Susan. It sounds like a wonderful conference! I look forward to hearing about it!

wow, what a blessing for sure ... i'm so glad that the Spirit is moving in hearts - especially when the opposite is happening in hearts that don't want to hear His voice ... a sign of our times ...

blessings on you!!
