Above that is me - Frances Louise and I am holding a sign that the Holy Spirit directed me to paint and put out front of a house my sister and I inhertied when our father passed from this earth and that we were told to turn the house into a prayer house for the community. That is a project that is in process -
the house we were told to name it "Restoration House." I am standing in one of the rooms with the completed sign. Restoration House has a 9ft Blood Red cross on what was once a tv antenna tower that the Holy Spirit directed us to errect and the sign I am holding is a sign at the front entrance of the yard speaking to that cross.
When I get time I will put up a page about "Restoration House" and the process of restoring it. I have tons of pictures that will accompany the testimony of what our Heavenly Father is doing with this 100 year old farm house.
Part of that Restoration has been personal, my restoration. As a kid I painted, and sketched all the time. I also loved taking photos. But intime the desire to do anything with any kind of art pretty much died.
I was born again on July 7, 2004 at a Benny Hinn Crusade in Anaheim California. I did not even think I needed saving. My sister and I took our mother to see Pastor Benny Hinn just to bless her. I didn't believe in any of this. But after a lifetime of dead religion and powerlessness after searching though psychology, metaphysics, astrology, numerology, the new-age, the occult, you name it and all manner of dead ends in a search for truth and genuine power I encountered the real thing - I was stunned and that night my sister and I said the sinner's prayer and accepted Yashua into out hearts (at that time we only knew his common name of Greek origin of Jesus).
My sister and I started attending Pastor Benny Hinn's classes of bible study in Sept 2004 when he was teaching on body, mind and spirit, and then when he started officially Signs and Wonders School of Ministry in Jan. of 2005. We have been students of his school for some 6+ years. Pastor Benny has given me a real love of the Word of God and an appreciation for a set-apart life, a life of holiness and no compromise. I consider myself blessed to have the opportunity of be a student of Signs and Wonders all these years. Please note: Benny Hinn Ministries is not endorsing this site - I am just giving an honest accounting of who exactly I am and who my influences have been and are.
I was baptized in the Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in tongues in March of 2005.
I met Pastor Gary Matlack and his wife Friedel at Signs and Wonders in 2005,and the Holy Spirit was speaking to him about having Salvation, Healing and Deliverance crusades - I started working with Wings of Fire in 2005. I am usually the person who is video tapping the crusades and outreaches in the US and the bible studies and salvation crusades in Mexico. If you see video of Wings of Fire on U-Tube I probably shot it.
In November of 2005 My sister and I took our mother to Israel and the 3 us were babtized in the Jordan River in Nov. 2005. That was an incredible experience to walk were Yashua walked, to be at the Sea of Galilee. It also birthed in me a great love for the Jewish people when I came to understand that the bible is really a veryJewish book, that every disciple was a Jew, the Son of God came as a Jew and we would not have a bible if it wasn't for the faithfulness of the Jews in keeping the Torah and the writings - that is proved by the scrolls of ancient paleo-hebrew created before Yashua walked the earth and found in the Kumron caves scrolls that have a 99.9% accuracy to what is in theTorah and writings today. I love Israel. I hope to go back to Israel again someday soon.
When in Israel, in Jerusalem I went to the Western Wall (incorrectly called the "wailing wall"), and I put a prayer in the wall. I had no idea how great and how quick the answer would come in the Holy Land. I asked Yah-Father God to make himself more real to me. I wanted a real experience that my mind could not dismiss, I wanted intimacy and an encounter. The next night I was at the Sea of Galilee and the Holy Spirit came upon me - His presence was so strong it stunned me. It was like a blanket of such peace and warmth and light and I found I was speaking in tongues, I had no english. I was hearing english inside my head but coming out of my mouth was only tongues. I was at a worship service that night and I was singing with all my might inside - but from the outside I looked like a silent movie - panomiming - no sound coming out of my mouth - but when I started singing in the spirit the sound was there. As this was happening - I remembered the prayer at the Wall and I knew this was the answer. I had no control over my tongue, I just spoke in a heavanly language that by-passed my critical, judgemental mind. I knew I was being touched by God. I was like this all that night, and the next morning and afternoon almost 24hours until I was baptized in the Jordan River. I went in speaking in tongues and I came out with english back. And I knew I had been touched by Almighty God in a Soverign Way.
I experienced the presence of Yashua so strong there I did not want to leave. I wept at the thought of having to leave what I had found. His Presence by the Holy Spirit stayed with me and has continued to grow deeper and draw me closer with each passing day. I love the Word. I spend alot of time reading the Word and praying in tongues or just soaking in the presence. I have scripture playing constantly where I live.
