I am characterized by compassion, joy and a certain indignation towards the common implication that there people and places we can’t reach. Primary I am to be intimate with God, to know His presence, voice and Word; from relationship with Him I function as He designed me. I believe much of my future function purpose is with unreached people groups in closed countries and with the persecuted church.

 

I am struck by Luke 10:2 “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray…” I have seen the need first hand so I intercede for the harvesters of nations; many sleeping laborers will awaken when they hear the prophetic truth of their purpose. I have seen a few awaken but there are many more.

Close to my heart is the importance of spiritual fathers and in relationship with sons and daughters; truly making disciples of the nations. I am in process growing as a son partly with the purpose of being an example in the nations, to help bridge the gap of spiritual generations in the future. It is in my heart to raise a family in the nations who love and trust God first, who display Holy Love from the youngest age. The safest place anyone can be is right where God leads them; the safest place to raise a family is with God wherever He leads us.

I live as a pioneer, intimately with God, carrying His transforming presence releasing Holy Love into the lives around me.

Vision

My vision is to help awaken and mature sleeping labors, penetrate closed nations to assist the persecuted church and bring Jesus to unreached people; to introduce everyone to an intimate relationship with God. I will raise my family and disciple young people who live this out.

Mission

I have been in Costa Rica since December 2014 in transition from short-term missions to my first long-term missions as Assistant Director of the Wylde Life Sanctuary. This is a season in which I am a disciple being matured on the job as I serve Brother Cliff’s vision, which is much like mine; this is a God given part of preparation for my future purpose. I am assisting as a pioneer, establishing a 24/7 house of intercessory worship, Bible institute, school of worship arts and cultural transformation center. These are all aspects of a regional, new wineskin matrix, a safe place to mature this young generation, reaching the Latin American and Caribbean nations. I am currently building relationship in the community, leading intercessory worship gatherings and will soon begin teaching discipleship courses.

My mission for this season is to serve Cliff in establishing the Wylde Life Sanctuary till I have worked myself out of a job and God releases me.
