Living the Dream

"Co-founder of a substance abuse treatment center wrote down a God-dream "to stand before Congress and give them solutions to the social problems that our nation is facing."

Two months later the State Governor nominated him “one of most distinguished citizens of 2012” for his work in the substance abuse field. As a result of this nomination he was asked to speak to state legislature about the work they were doing and offer suggestions to maximize success in the non-profit sector. State legislators were genuinely impressed and confounded by the success of their program compared to similar programs.

Three months after speaking to legislature he was asked to sit on a state strategic planning team. The team travelled to Baltimore to meet with various members of the legislature, military, Joint Chiefs, and other members of the FEDERAL (national) government. As he sat in the room sharing ideas about how to solve the social problems in the NATION, he was overwhelmed with a sense of God’s destiny and purpose over his life.

"Honestly, when I wrote that dream I did not really even have the faith to believe that it was possible. I have since been overwhelmed with the reality that God has really, really big plans for us. What an honor to dream with Him!""

Living the Dream

"Family construction/renovation company goes into rental properties and repairs/renovates prior to next tenant. Often the houses have holes in the wall, broken fittings and bad atmosphere. They bring in their two elementary aged children and ask them what do they sense in the atmosphere. Then after repairing/renovating and releasing peace they bring children back to see what they sense at the end. Unbelieving landlords are reporting "even the bad feelings around the house are gone!"
As some of the worst houses in the street are repaired/renovated and "cleansed" the face of the community is changing."

Living the Dream

"From businessman who goes into local prison and does Kingdom classes: "28 prisoners came into my class a few weeks back and ask if I knew a certain man in town. My response was yes I'm familiar with him. It seems this man had been one of the guards in their shop for years and used to minister the gospel to them. They learned that he now had an aggressive cancer and was asking if I would go pray with him and let him know that they were praying also.

"This I did as several customers looked on in the local hardware store. I made the declaration that HEALING IS COMING TO OUR COMMUNITY FROM WITHIN THE PRISON. I saw the man last week he came and told me he was now cancer free! Thank you Papa God that no matter where we are we can release to Kingdom, and no matter where we are Your love is there."

Living the Dream

"$4 MILL problem solved: International business was looking to save overhead costs by expanding one their facilities in China to bring two of their businesses into the same location. They were strapped for cash because they had recently installed $10m of equipment to support a new program. The best quote they could find was for a price of $4m. The corporation wouldn't approve this additional expense at this time.

"The business subsequently received a visit from the governor of the region who informed them that this same town in China was being merged with 2 other regions to form a new region to which the government wanted to attract tourism. The bad news was they would not approve an expansion even if the funds were found because they wanted the company to vacate their manufacturing facility to make way for tourism. The good news was that in exchange, they would pay for the company to move their facility and all their equipment to a new location and build them a building that would accommodate all 3 locations in China.... a $4m problem solved!"
