God send us?

So there we were in Sweden! Hard to believe for us that we were actually going to be ministering overseas. We had two large boxes of books and of course too much luggage and we were out standing in the snow waiting for a bus. The boxes were falling apart and it was very cold and did not seem too glamorous. We got to the hotel and boy did jet lag kick in. We were out for hours! It was very different going to the restaurant at the hotel. Alot of cold cuts and cheese. Joe can live on cheese alone. Anyway now we just had to connect with Dave and Maxie Broom to go over all that needed to be done at the training.
\
For those of you reading this blog. What was your first overseas trip like? Are you being called to minister in a foreign country?

Blessings,
Joe and Stephanie

God send us?

So as we said it was time to prepare for our trip to Sweden and Denmark. Joe was doing a bit better when it came to knowing that his first flight in a airliner was a over seas trip. Now we were committed and doing all that needs to be done, passports material from the ministry to take, getting the right time off from the police department etc... This trip was planned by Dave and Maxie Broom who at the time did alot of International Travel for the ministry then called Marriage Ministries International. They are from Zimbabwe and we knew them pretty well from conventions in Denver. Finally it came time to get on the first plane from Denver to Newark, NY. We got the airport with boxes of books and of course too much luggage and waited to board the plane. Joe was still scarred, knees wobbling kinda of sweating wondering what would happened if we just changed our mind. It would have been bad, real bad. There were training set up in Sweden and Denmark that Dave and Maxie would have to do by themselves and could have handled no problem, but with out the training manuals! We had those with us! As we got on the airplane Joe thought this is alot smaller than he thought and started to feel claustrophobic! We got to our seat and Joe was in between Stephanie and a stranger and did not like being so cramped. As we sat on the runway Joe took out his bible and started to read Joshua! Encouraging himself in the Lord, or trying to. The man next to him started to talk to Joe. "So is this your first flight? I can tell by what you are reading". What God put a Christian next to us? The man started to explain how everything was going to feel and how normal this sound was and how that felt and by the end of that trip Joe was ready to get on the next plane over the ocean. Jeremiah 29:11 came alive "For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans of welfare and peace, and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome" Amplified Version; for the hard of hearing!

God Send Us?

So as we said in our last blog we were at a standstill at this point . Stephanie new that God was speaking to us and Joe was fighting it tooth and nail. The Fear of flying and the lack of trust to raise funds just were too much. Of course we submitted to pray and we new the other would heard from God and it would be settled. Well Joe decided that this fear had to go and started to ask for prayer. We remember going to a service where Dave Duell was preaching. Now Dave had prayed for us many times before and we had seen miracles. One of which is our youngest son, Jesse. The devil said we could not have him but God said different another story for another time. Anyway, Joe went up for prayer totally expecting to be delivered of a chicken spirit. Joe got delivered alright but not of a chicken spirit but of a spirit of control!  Wow "what a deal" as Dave would say. So now we were both in agreement that if God supplied the money to go in time we would go. Joe was still dealing with the fear of flying. The spirit may have been gone but we really didn't have any confirmation yet. Joe was pretty convince the money would not come in. One day a business man at church told Joe to stop by his office that he wanted to help us a little with the mission. Well time was pretty much up and we needed more than a little to go. Joe prayed "ok God if you really are telling us to do this it has to be you". As Joe went up to the mans office his secretary handed Joe a envelope. The long ride down in the elevator was a interesting one. Joe opened the envelope and found a check for $2000!!! Oh No we have to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! God had spoken! Stephanie's faith and trust won out. Sometimes as a couple one of us has to take the reigns and seek the Lord for Gods best! Well now to prepare for the trip to Denmark and Sweden.

God send us?

It has been a while since we last blogged. So we want to get back in the blogging saddle , so to speak. We want to tell a story about our journey as we have tried to serve the Lord! We hope that you will enjoy some of these stories of how we came to taking the step into going to the Nations and what it has meant to us on our family. Way back in 1985 when the Lord healed our marriage and as we started to receive and walk in His healing we started ministering to marriages, we were very content to do it here in the US in the comfort of our home. When we started dating back in 1975 Stephanie had a call on her life to be a Medical Missionary and gave it all up to get married. As you may have known we were not equally yoked and Joe was not a Christian even when we did get married. So Stephanie has always had the missionary call on her life. Joe was a Denver Police Detective and worked in the Homicide Unit from 1986 til 1987 so he had all the adventure he needed. We ministered to marriages in Nova Shalom which became Marriage Ministered International in 1993. Oh by the way Joe in all he had been through in the police department had a fear issue when it cam to flying so of course God was content in us being content. In 1991 Joe found a letter in the mail box from Todd and Candi Halberg who were the National Directors for MMI at the time. Joe opened the letter and started to sweat and shake. The letter was asking us to consider being on the International training team and there was a Training Weekend coming up in Denmark and Sweden if we were interested.  NO WAY! Joe had never been on a commercial airliner and wasn't about to make his first time to Scandinavia! He actually flew a small plane in High School in a Aeronautics class but that was when he had no brains or fear and now NO WAY! After all you don't know if those pilots are any good. Forget trusting them and of course God would understand Joe not trusting Him. Yep Joe was willing to face 5 guys with guns before he would get on a plane. So as Joe brought the letter in the house the only way he knew he would not have to worry is to not tell Stephanie about the letter. WHAT! Boy was that not what we taught! So after Joe finally showed Stephanie the letter and saw her face light up like a light bulb and get all excited he began to tremble and give every excuse in the book why it couldn't be done. "We have to raise our own money! How can we do that?" " How can I get time off work to do that?" "We just can't do that , who will watch our kids?" Well Joe went on and on and on!!! What was it that was holding him back? Could we at least pray about this? "NO!" we aren't doing it. Now the journey begins.....

Thirst and Hunger after Jesus!

Nehemiah 9:15
You gave them bread from heaven for their hunger, And brought them water out of the rock for their thirst, And told them to go in to possess the land Which You had sworn to give them.

The Lord told the Israelite's to posses the land and He brought them provision. After He quenched their thirst He told them to go and posses their land. We spoke of being hungry after God in our last blog and we want to continue with this theme just as we want to stay hungry after God. Not only should we seek (thirst) after righteousness but all things that the Lord is! We are learning that as we step out with every step we take God is there to meet us. The only way we can know the character of Jesus is to know Him intimately and the only way we can know Jesus intimately is to seek and thirst after Him! We need to find the way to search after His heart in a way that we will understand no religion involved just relationship. What land has the Lord told you to posses? 


Blessings,
Joe and Stephanie

Joy in the Fellowship of God ] [ A Psalm of David when he was in the wilderness of Judah. ] O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land Where there is no water.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.

Our desire is to see believers to get hungry. We all want healing , salvation of our loved ones and our dreams and visions fulfilled. For this to happen we need to be hungry. Maybe you saw Rocky III. That was the Rocky Movie where Rocky Balboa had to go back to the old way he trained to get his passion back to fight Clubber Lane who was a bad dude. That movie always gets us going to search down deep for our passion and fire! The devil is alot worse then Clubber and he wants to destroy us. If we want our families healed and whole than we have to declare war on the devil get our fire back and take back what is ours. Really it's not about wanting something it is about wanting Jesus!!! Seeking after Him with our whole heart and every fiber of our beings! Just imagine as David said in the above Psalm. His soul and his flesh long for water where there is none! That's how we need to long after the Lord and His in-filling! Because he will fill us and quench our thirst!

Watch your words!


Galatians 6:7

New King James Version (NKJV) Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

Do you think that only your intentional words are important? To your Spouse, your children? Or even yourself? Might seem like a funny question but think about it. Have you ever said a hurtful thing to your Spouse and apologize even right away and have the word you spoke still wound and defile? We need to remember the law of sowing and reaping as we walk out our lives and not create a jungle of danger by sowing seeds of fear, doubt and hurt, but a beautiful garden where peace reigns. Negative and hurtful words can build walls that cause hurt for years. Even a attitude. How many times have we had a attitude towards our children making them feel we don't trust them. We all do these things our encouragement is for all of us to watch our words and our attitudes and get in step with the Holy Spirit. And weather you intended to say what you said or act the way you did the results are the same.  Encouraging words that bless have a long lasting result in our lives. God always blesses and wants us to bless and bring a culture of blessing to our families! Remember the 103 Psalm where David is blessing the Lord for all His mercies. As we bless the Lord and those blessings will come back to us and help us to build that  garden of peace.

A Psalm of David.

103 
Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
 Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
 Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies,
 Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.



Blessings,
Joe and Stephanie

Fan the Flame!

Two weeks ago we ministered alongside Evangelist Larry Hrovat in a three day revival in a church here in Colorado. We all were determined to let the Holy Spirit have His way with the meetings not knowing for sure who or when we or he would be preaching. The Pastor was in agreement to let God be God. This church is using another churches building, both are Black Churches awesome worship and preaching! A third church which is a Spanish speaking church comes in right after the church we were preaching the revival for. The Spirit was moving mightily through the three days folks were getting healed and delivered and getting touched by the Holy Ghost. The Lord was calling back back slid-den spouses on Saturday night and the battle cry of the night became "I will not be denied!". On Sunday morning we waited with the Pastor in prayer for the 1st Church to finish their service so we could start. The Holy Ghost was moving strong in that service just as it had with the other services something seemed different. The Lord had us just become part of that service and it seemed that it was all one service and the anointing got stronger before the end of our meeting the Spanish church started to filter in and for a moment it seemed like we were going to keep having church. The Hispanic Pastor and his wife got on the pulpit and started to preach. What a wonderful Holy Spirit filled weekend we had. Act 1:8 "You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you". We experienced it and we will continue to flame the fire for revival this is just a seed. A burning ember!

Revival!!!

We hear about revival all the time. In our city there is a group trying to bring Pastors together for revival. We all hope and pray for revival. We need to pray, we need to hope and we need to expect! Where does it start? In our churches? In the street? In the bars?  Does it mean thousands will get saved, healed and delivered? We believe it will start with you! And us! It starts in your relationships, with your relationship with Jesus, making Him the center then to your spouse and your children! All your relationships, then it will flow in the church and the streets and the world. Malachi 4:5-6 in the Amplified Bible says Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes. And he shall turn [and reconcile] the hearts of the [estranged] fathers to the [ungodly] children, and the hearts of the [rebellious] children to [the piety of] their fathers [a reconciliation produced by repentance of the ungodly]; lest I come and smite the land with a curse [and a ban of utter destruction]. Start with repentance to the Lord! Then have revival with your spouse let Gods power and love flow from there. You don't need a formula you need the Holy Spirit to fill you and set you a blaze for your every need and the needs of your soul and the world!!! Again in the Amplified Version: Acts 1: 5 Jesus told them For John baptized with water, but not many days from now you shall be baptized with - placed in, introduced into - the Holy Spirit. Acts 1: 8 But you shall receive power-ability, efficiency and might - when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends - the very - bounds - of the earth!!!! Now that's breakthrough! That's revival. We believe it and receive it, now in Jesus Name!

Ready to reach the world for Marriages!!!


Praise the Lord!!!!!!! Our web site is done and up on the Internet www.Missionaries2Marriages.com. The Lord will now provide the provision for the vision. We ask the Lord to send people to Partner with us in this end time harvest ministry.  Remember a small consistent gift is as important as a large gift. You can use Pay Pal from our we site to set up monthly gifts. We have a huge breakthrough testimony story to share with you. A church that we are partnered with in Philadelphia gave us finances to send to a Pastor we have been talking with in Pakistan to buy a projector and a screen so we could do Marriage Seminars in his area of Pakistan online. The Pastor just sent photographs to us of his church opening and setting up the equipment. The dates will be set soon. Please pray about this project when you pray about Partnering financially with us in Missionaries2Marriages. 2 Corinthians 9:1 Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness

Launch His Vision

Luke 5:4
When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.”

Now that the New Year is here we are all faced with what is our part in what God is doing. Are we to wait for another word or dream or are we to act on the word the Lord last gave us. We have all heard of many tragedies in families in the last year. We say NOW is the time to respond! What gifting has the Lord given you for such a time as this? How can surround those in need with the Lord comfort. The Lord is saying now is the time for you to respond not after you hear one more marriage breakup, not after you hear about one more person falling from the Lord, the person you never thought would! It is time to launch your vision, what has God told you to do? Respond to His voice don't let circumstance or finances or what you think is your disabilities stop you. If you are a married couple draw closer than you ever have and seek the Lords face together and get every detail of the Lords strategy. No matter who you are you are part of Gods plan.Your are part of the great CATCH!



Blessings,
