The Enduring Journey: Hear & Obey

March 3, 2000

(Father speaking to Karen)

Tell Charley, I am telling him also, just how much I love him. I am so pleased that he has heard My voice concerning the nonprofit and he has done all that I have asked him to do. I am so glad that he is so excited about the El Salvador trip and that there is so much that will happen down there. He will be used mightily in the lives of those people. There is no language barrier for love as I have shown you before. Be ready to go just as soon as the preparations are done. It will be very quickly and it will call for a commitment of time and finances. I will provide all that you need. Do not try to figure how it will happen but it will happen. I have it all arranged and all taken care of for you. It will be one of the most blessed trips you will ever take. Your steps are numbered and I am with you all the way. I will give strength, health, provision and joy to accomplish all that I desire. Walk with Me every step and do not be afraid to take that step I say. Do not look at the world around you for I do not depend on the world to do all that I desire. I have all that you need. You are My child and I will care for you. Stay in the Word for I have many messages for you to give. For both of you to give. Karen will talk and share more than she ever has. I am stretching her greatly. She just thought she was stretched in El Salvador last trip. That was only an example of what is to come. She will have to throw herself upon Me for Me to lift her up. It will be so good and so blessed. Remain in total communion with Me and every day will bring a revelation of My plan and power. I love you both so much and I thank you for being willing to step out in faith trusting Me to do all I have said. You have been paying close attention to Me and do not fear for I am with you. I am your rock and your strength and your peace. You will see the glory of the Lord. You will see Me high and lifted up and you will see Me do miracles and signs as never before. Yes, this world thinks they have to have a sign to believe but I tell you that they will believe without a sign just because you have spoken My words and My name unto them. But I will show them My power and I will show them My love. Be ready as I am going to bring such a great harvest of souls and such a great healing of lives that no one can doubt that I am God. You are a part of what I am doing and you are an instrument of My love. Peace I give you, My peace I leave you as you write this message.

(Father speaking to Karen)

For Karen personally—I love you so much. Yes, I know it hard to wait and yes, I know that you want to get on with things but I am teaching you patience. I know that seems strange because you have been a most patient person but this is a different kind of patience. I have all your steps numbered and I have a plan and purpose for every moment of each day. I am so pleased with your devotion to Charley and I am so pleased with your devotion to Me. You are worthy to be My child. You are showing yourself faithful in all things. As you experience fear, I am with you. Always remember that I have given you the victory over that fear. Your enemy has no hold on you anymore and what happened on Wednesday night is an example of this. In the past you would have been immobilized by the fear that came upon you but on that night you pressed through to do what I desired you to do and by doing this you broke the bonds of that sin on you at that moment. Just continue to remind satan that you are Mine and as such you do not have to listen to him at all. There is nothing he can do to you. I have a call and an anointing on your life and it is to teach, preach and pray in the name of My Son and to speak boldly to all I send you to. Keep trusting Me and keep reading My Word and becoming so immersed in the Word that it flows so freely and naturally from you. Be consumed by the Word and by My presence. Joy is yours My child. Joy is yours. Be ready, we are on our way to even greater opportunities than you have ever had.


Charley and I left on March 23rd, our 32nd Wedding Anniversary for San Salvador, El Salvador, to be Interim Pastors at a church started by a missionary. For those 6 weeks we saw the Lord do mighty things in the life of those people. We had opportunities to minister to husbands and wives, youth and the elderly. We saw the Love of God penetrate deep within a culture that truly does not know about God’s kind of love. It was an awesome and life-changing experience for us and we also saw the Lord provide the resources needed to go. Father cared for us His precious children and brought us safely home by miraculous means. That is another story. We praise the Lord!
