Visitation In Galt, California USA

Fire going in and out of the windows and circling the church!

The Glory of who He is in Galt CA.

Joe Cicchino - Apr 16, 2004

The Glory of who He is. All I want is the Glory of God. His presence is what makes it worth while doing His will. I was just in San Pablo a few days and now I'm back in Galt, where His presence is so strong and vibrant.

Pastor Dave was telling me on Thursday that He saw fire going in and out of the windows and circling the church. He said it looked like a band of Fire. The presence of Jesus was so strong and He was walking among us. People every night are getting saved and set free. One street girl who lives in a tent has had her life totally changed and has been coming every night.

Last night the praise and worship was just overcoming and people were up at the alter just crying out to Him with all there hearts. Healings are taking place both spiritual and physically. Friday night many people just felt that false prophecies were broken off them and they feel some much freedom in there lives.

Last night a woman came from Northern California about 5 hours away. She lives in Yreka which is about 90 miles north of Redding. When she left today to left a letter about what happened to her.

Dave and Lynn

I want you to know how sweet the freedom of the Spirit is in your church. He truly set me free and peace entered my heart that I have been longing for. I know that I am going home a new person, refreshed by His Spirit. For so long there has been this cycle, I saw the Lords hand reach down and grasp mine as I took that step in faith. I know He has blessed me with the gift of a word of Knowledge-that gift has been hindered by my lack of feeling worthy, and so , so small. Those lies were broken, Praise God. I have a peace now that I have never known. A peace so strong, yet tender. A peace that will overflow into every area fo my life; my children, my marriage, my walk with Jesus. My giant has fallen; in my weakness. He was my strength. Amen.

Not by might, not by power, by His Spirit-His gentle sweet Spirit, I am free!

I want to leave you this small love offering and my prayer that just as Jesus took so little to feed the multitudes, He will take this small seed and bring forth a Harvest.

Sarah

When the Glory of God is in a place all you can see is His Victory, a victory that will bring forth the fruit of who He is.

God Bless

Another night of Glory, we started the night out with soaking in the presence of God, our worship kicked of with some prophetic worship with cedar flutes and then we were gone in the Glory.

Pastor Joe saw a pool in the front of the church with an Angel stirring the water, people came and sat in the middle of the pool, my wife began singing a prophetic song and the waters were stirred even more.

A man came in severe pain and dragging his left leg, could not bend it and had a difficult time walking. We prayed and the power of God hit him (not touched) and he was totally healed running around the sanctuary. The whole church started running around the building free from intimation.

The word was "do you want to be healed" John 5 "pick up your mat and walk" Jesus was asking us what do we want--- then move in it and we did.

A older man came I had never meet, came and sat in the back of the church worshiping he was called forward and given a word of knowledge he began to weep and then laugh, he was refreshed in the power of God. He later told me he had been looking for this for a long time.

One of my men who's son just committed a crime and has been in the local news papers and has been some what embarrassed by the whole thing, was set free by a prophetic word from Pastor Joe, who had no idea of his situation. I know you may read these post and think this sounds far out, I have a difficult time writing these because of in the past we have found out the story to be different. I do not want to miss God and take credit for anything, I just want to see real revival, I want to encourage those of you who may read this that God is on the move. I give God all the glory, this is not about a man or church, this has humbled me deeply to see God move in this church.

We are meeting again tonight @ 7:00 p.m. thru Sunday don't miss out, Galt is located south of Sacramento approximately 25 miles, 45 minutes from the Sacramento airport, hope to see you.

Last night no one wanted to leave His presence was so strong. His glory is real and it is not for one place only. He wants people to come and take it with them. Even though we have His Glory but to sit in His manifested presence is something that can't be explained by man.

The Glory of God was so strong last night, all I wanted to do was just sit and enjoy His presence. Last night we had more people accept the Lord. Last night I was given a word of knowledge that there were a few women who had been raped and that Jesus wanted to take all the guilt and shame from them. When I said it the power of God fell on the place and women started to cry and yell as they were being set free. This young girl about 11 years old yelled out that your crying will turn to joy and the power of God hit her and she fell to the floor.

That is what happened next the crying turned to joy as they were all set free of the guilt of the past. One woman had a demon hanging on her and after I pulled it off her head she fell to the floor totally set free for the first time that she could ever remember. Instantly she was a different person.

I just lived through being in Tulare for 5 months last year and all I can say is that we have had some people who were there come and they can't believe what is happening in Galt. It is the same but totally different because I can't explain it any other way. People physically seeing His Glory and His presence in the place. All I know is that it is about Him our Lord Jesus and no one else. I just humble myself before His mighty power and grace. Lord you are the one and only one that matters

More in Galt

I am numb this am from the wave of Glory that hit us last night. Right off the bat people got saved, then the prophetic worship started and all of heaven open. People saw Angels all around the room kneeling down on one knee, I felt it was Gideon's army around us, they know how to drink from the river the enemies power was destroyed.

Friends I am writing and I just don't have words to tell of what is happening here in our church in Galt. It is not a church service, meeting, seminar, conference, I just don't know what to say or how to describe it.

The reports from people are so deep I don't know how to put it on paper, time may help. My prayers are I don't miss God and get my hands on this or try to control it, I just want to pastor but I think I have been taught wrong, I am learning how to do it his way.

I am still waiting for the "explosion" of his presence, God is being gentle there are at lot of babies.
I know that with all this there are some who still don't get it, because it is not what they expected.

I will do my best to keep every one updated, I don't want to stretch things, just tell what is happening. More to come.

Galt is located south of Sacramento about 25 miles on Hwy 99 we are north of Stockton about the same distance. We are real easy to get to, so come. One warning this probably doesn't look like you think it should, so turn off your thinking.

Blessings,
David Ross

Subject: How much more God?
=======


How much more God? How much do you have for us? What do you want from us and how far do you want us to go for you? Your presence is so deep and forgiving. All I can say that the more I look at me the more that I see that I have to let go for you. You are who we need to see and serve unconditionally with our whole mind, whole soul, our whole heart and with all of the spirit that you have put in us when we accepted you Jesus as our Lord and Master.

Freedom is of you, and not of the world. The victory that we see is from you and only you. All that we are seeing in Galt is about you and only you. This is not about a man only you and the more we look for you and worship you. The more that we can see what is of you. Your peace is a peace that will set us free to serve you more and to be more like you.

The lives of many are being changed by His Presence and Glory. One young lady Amanda who lived Her young life in the streets. Has been set free from many things in her life. She has been wearing a bar in her tongue for a long time. After Jesus healed her of many things that happened, yesterday she took it out of her mouth and put on the alter. It is not part of her anymore. So many lives are different, so many people are starting to see who they are in Christ. bondage are going as fast as people let go of who they were and now they are who He wants them to be.

Pastor Dave, last night went to grab my hand to get my attention and the power of God just hit him like he has never been hit by the power before and he went flying threw the air and landed a distance away in a sitting position. His strength and power is so strong in the sanctuary and is so hard to explain. He has been using all of us to be here for Him. Again I state that this is not about any one person, just Jesus.

We are starting to get visitors from different parts of the country coming. Last night we had someone from Arizona, Nebraska and Washington, besides from all over California.

What happened to me last night

As I was standing on the platform, worshiping I heard the Lord say. Grab hold of your staff( my staff is engraved arise Debra) As I grabbed my staff the power of God hit me in such a way I felt as though that I had become an angel. dispatched into the congregation laying my hands on people. The power of God ignited. Words came forth to set people free. from past wounds and controlling spirits in there life's. As God continued to hold His hand on me. I continued to shake violently with the power of God upon me. It felt like it must have felt when the Holy Spirit was speaking to the old testament prophets. Then His word came forth from my mouth this is what I remember what the Lord was saying. Get ready! Get ready! Get ready!. The taste of my Glory and Fire has just begun. No man will put his hand on what I am doing. No man will stand in the way of the Glory that is begun to fall. I am the alpha and Omega, I am that I am, the beginning and the end. The Glory of God hovered in such a way, that I or no one could stand in the presence of God and not be changed.

As a pastors wife for 20 plus years I have never been hungrier for God then I am at this moment of my life. I truly never doubted that God was real, but what is happening I just want closer to Him. The power of God has changed me, so much in the last two years, and it all started when I was desperate for the salvation of my son. Desperate people do desperate things for desperate answers. I was so desperate that I was dynamically changed. Never again will I be the same. I have become a fire dancer for God.

Word from Galt Visition


I am sitting in my home office trying to write to you all about last night. We are in our third week of meetings (visitation) and every night is different. last night my wife Lynn was so empowered that she was praying for people with a power on her that I had never seen before. Many people were set free, and released from bondage and fear.

I was shocked to see people coming from Nebraska, and Arizona, hungry for Gods prescience. I have been so humbled by this visitation of God, I fear that I will hinder this by putting my hands on it. I know now why William Seymore of Assuza Street revival would put his head into an apple crate, I have felt the same way.

last night the passage of scripture from Isa. 6 was so strong in fact I read it to the church. I felt like God was cleansing our lip so we could see him in his glory. like God wants to show him self to us here. I feel he is making it possible for us the see him in all his glory.

I will keep you posted as we continue in this visitation.

Please bring the sick and the afflicted, it is like the healing pool is stirred, I can not wait for tonight I have so much excitement in my spirit I feel I will explode.

More to come

Last night was a very interesting night. In the parking lot when we showed up for service, there was a young lady who was very upset and distraught with herself. She came into the church broken and destroyed. We took her into the pastor's office and the Lord showed me that she was abused as a child and still had them soul ties from that person. I told her who it was and suddenly a demon rose up in her and got very angry with what was happening. I started praying over her and so did the pastor's wife. The pastor's wife started praying in the spirit. I started casting the demon out of her and He responded by growling at me and speaking in a language that I never heard before. She was finally set free and prayed and thanked the Lord. She then went to the alter and was a totally different person.


The Glory and power of the Lord was so strong last night that people just sat at the alter for hours. A women who had never been there before came and was prayed for. Before last night she believed in Budda and Jesus showed up in her life and she was set free and accepted Him into her life. The power of God touched her and she went out in the spirit of God. She said that she never felt any thing like that before.


God gave a word last night and the person who heard it just broke and cried and realized that it was for her and it was just changing her life. Brandon, and a young girl about 4 years looked on the platform and seen and angel standing there with his wings stretch out and everytime the wings moved fire came forth. Also Brandon seen Jesus moving and praying over everyone who was laying in the front of the church.


Like I have been saying for over a year now. It is not about man but about Jesus and who He is. This is more humbling then you could ever imagine. Just sitting in His Glory night after and night and letting Him be who He wants to be. Each night has been totally different in many ways but with the same results each night. With all of us just getting closer to Him and us becoming else in us and more in Him.

All I can say, is that it is all about Jesus and not about us. It was so strong with the presence that all that could be said was that it is not about a church or man, it is about doing His will not ours. All that kept on being said is take this outside the 4 walls and bring it to the people. It is not about coming here and being a part of this, but coming here and taking it with you to your home, work and place of worship. The victory is in Jesus not us. He gives us the victory in Him when we serve Him with our whole heart. Come, come forth and serve the one that has set us free from our guilt and shame. The man who died to set us completely free in Him. Jesus our Lord and savior.

Last night (Friday) God showed up in a way that will be hard to explain. The presence of his glory was so thick that it felt like thick oil. We allowed most of the worship team to take a break, so they could receive something. We are learning something, this is not about a man, it is a visitation of God. I have noticed people wanting to know "when is the preaching coming" There is so much of the word released through the reading of the word and exaltations from Pastor Joe and myself pastor David, it just doesn't come in "lump sum".

Last night was like 4 different meetings,I personally didn't get off the floor until this morning. The word came forward that God was giving us keys, for warfare these keys would unlock what we needed at time we needed it. Before service I was praying and I kept getting a vision of a large golden key coming from Jesus, latter the word came forward that explained the key.

It seems that the anointing is increasing, new people come in and with in minutes they are touched, set free or what ever. I also have seen people that come that don't get it they are looking for another church service, you Know, three songs, offering, preaching, alter call. Well we don't give alter calls that happens when you walk in the door, the whole meeting is an alter call.

I have heard reports from people that they see angels every night, around the alter area and the front of the church. I have been given a word from the Lord on how to release people into our city, I know that there are going to be allot of people coming to Galt, I am going to release them into the city while they are here, we have a huge open air market not far from the church, were there are people from may nations that come here to shop, plus an open air stage were we can do worship. God is releasing us to the market place, that is were Jesus would have been. We also are going to put on a pastor lunch soon so we can speak into pastors if you know a pastor that would be interested please let us know, this is not about us or our church, we must spread this to other places.

My wife has been so touched I have never seen such a powerful anointing, her prophetic call is releasing the supernatural into people. Her worship or I call "spirit song" has open the heavens. Our entire worship team is being transform they are learning how to hear his voice and play the song of heaven.I have given CD's out to pastor's I haven't heard any reports from them as of yet.

If you have been to our web page you will notice that we are having a conference on Mother's day May 9th Well we are just going to keep what is happing now, that will go for a while. I really see no end soon for this visitation.
I am trying to write to you what is happing, this is very hard, Last night pastor Joe was laughing at me he said "I want to see you write this down" I didn't write on Thursday because I have know words.I can say this in a couple of words "God showed up".

Party in Galt, night of Fire

The Glory of God is such a special gift, that God let's us enjoy. It is a gift of His presence, and His victory in us. Many things happened, that are so hard to explain or understand. But when it is God, there is no explaining necessary. Only just moving in who He is, not who we think we are. Let His power fall. Let His fire begin to consume us, in a way that we have never been consumed before.

God Bless

Last night (Saturday) God showed up in a new way different from any other night. God threw a big party for every one, a time of refreshing and joy.

A testimony that came out of last night; A lady sitting in the back of the room told God "if this is you, then let someone yell out FIRE." well you Know God, pastor Joe gets up about the same time and yells FIRE, at the same time the worship leader is singing about the Fire. Now here is where it gets good, the fire alarm in the church goes off, but know one in the sanctuary hears it, I go and reset it but non of the pulls are pulled, next the fire trucks shows up red lights and all. Now the lady tells God "if this is you then let someone call out my left knee that is in pain" my wife gets up and says " there is someone here with pain in your left knee" she was blown away. She got healed and set free, God is sooooo God.

After a while of Gods party there was a heavy deep feeling of love from the father most every one laid on the floor in the presences of his glory, it was so heavy that you just wanted to go to sleep and rest.

Our friend John from San Jose, Ca. was in the meeting last night, he reports that he is doing much better, hasn't received a doctors report yet, but we are believing with him.
We are going to keep the meetings going again next week, with pastor Joe and our team here at New Hope. We are looking for more of what God is doing here, don't miss out on this visitation.

Living A Life Free In Him

What can you say when God does what He wants to do, not what you want to do. He moves and sets people free when we are free to let Him be who He wants to be. Our love for Jesus can do what He see's what is right for us. The hardest part of our lives is to be able to let go and leave everything in His hands. When the flesh speaks we act the way in the natural that all it can do is control us in a way that is not of Him. Our flesh is something that keeps us from understanding who He is. We need to realize who we are in the spirit, not in the flesh. The flesh keeps us from serving Him, in a way that will help us and others. The more we realize that it is about Him only and not about us at all. 'We can have true victory in Him. It is about being led and directed to do what He wants, not what people expect.


The time of the seeker sensitive is what He wants to end. When you hug and care about people and tell them that they can stay hurt, is this the way that Jesus set us free. He set us free with the pain that He suffered. It is easier to tell someone everything will be ok and they don't have to face what has been controlling them all there lives.


It is about being free in Him and that comes with repentance and forgiving. The hardest one to forgive is your self. We at times thing that we are self righthous not in Him, but in us. You can't speak the truth to someone until you faced the truth yourself. We need to look deep into who we are in Christ, to see who we truly are. The life that we live is it a life about Him and not about us. We need to come to Him completely, with a heart that is cleansed and pure for Him. Yes we make mistakes, but our mistakes are of the flesh, not of the spirit and when we ask Him to forgive us, we are free in Him, to do His will not ours.


Sunday there was a young lady who is 17 years old who came for the first time. Her mother who is an x drug user and prostitute who has spent many years in jail brought her. This woman life has been changed since we been in Galt and she is free of all the guilt and pain of her past. The Lord has become the center of her life. Well, her daughter still felt the pain of her past and wouldn't let it go. When she walked into the church the Lord said go and hold her hands. Tell her that what she feels is not who you are but of me. She felt His peace come all over her. I held her hands for about 30 minutes and the peace of the Lord just changed her life. Her mother came to me that night and told me that her daughter is a totally different person and couldn't thank God enough. IT is about being obedient and doing what God wants done not what you think it should be. It is about letting Jesus be Jesus and letting Him set the captives free.

------------------------
Last night was a night of total bliss in the Lord. His Glory was so ever present with us. All you wanted to do was lay on your face and enjoy Him like you never did before. The peace of who Jesus is, is a peace that is understandable to those who know how to let go of who they are. When you can be free in you, then you can be free in God. It has been something to be able to be with Him everyday and to all of His signs and wonders in operation. All I can say that the less of us means the more of Him. I am in total awe of what He has been doing here in Galt. Yes, what He is doing is nothing new, but to constantly see Him as who He is, humbles you more each day of being in His presence.


Pastor Kevin Cates, who is the worship leader here, said yesterday afternoon he was in the sanctuary and the presence of God so strong. He started to sing and God gave him a beautiful new song. He said as he started to sing it, the Lords presence just overcame him like it never did before. He sang the song last night and that is when all you wanted to do was lay on your face and praise the Lord. God is so good to us when we are free to be with Him with an open heart, the is pure for Him.


Claire, who is someone who has been coming to the meetings, who says that her life has been changed by what has been happening to her. She gave a testimony about what has happened to her sister in law. Last week we prayed for her. She was in the 4th stage of Cancer in her lymph nodes and had tumors in different parts of her body. Well she went for her 1st kimo treatment and they said that the tumors are gone. Amanda had a lump under her arm and that is gone. Tim had major pain in his back and that is gone, so did Joe and Jermey it is all gone. Linda had a kidney stone and that is gone. We didn't ask for the testimonies people just started telling us about them. So many things are happening daily that is to hard to write about. All I know is that the Glory of God is real.


Two young people accepted the Lord last night, and then felt the power of God go through them and they knew for the first time in there life that God is real. The Lord sent me to them and He told me that they didn't know who He is and when I asked them they said that they wanted Jesus. We have yet to have an alter call or preach on salvation, almost every night someone accepts the Lord. He is drawing in the broken and lost to Galt. There is freedom in who He is. if we let God be God in our lives. Freedom! Freedom!


God Bless

Last night was another night that was different then every other night. It was the first night in Galt that we didn't have live music. All the other nights was live plus a little music on cd's. Last night the Lord let us to have cd's only and let God be God. People just came to the front and layed on the floor and entered into His presence. Then He would give me scripture and I would read it. Then He would give me words of knowledge and words of propecy and I would speak it. Then pastor Lynn went to people and layed hands on them as they layed there and they were all touched. People came up for prayer and were touched. Then Pastor Dave and Pastor Lynn prayed over the sick and they were touched. Then some of the sick came to me and I prayed with them. Susan a young lady who has been struggling with her life, started yelling that she is finally free that she finally understands who she is and she is free. She said that God touched her and she finally is free. Every night she would come and cry last night all she could do was smile. We are finishing up our 5 week here in Galt.


It was a very interesting night with the Lord, all you wanted to do was lay on your face and be in His presence. It was a quite time with Jesus, but there was much impact on peoples lives. I felt that I was with Jesus. and was watching him and He just wondered, around the people and ministered to them as they came to him. I just had a vision of Him just being with the people laughing with them and just enjoying every one who was around Him. Their was such intimacy last night that it is almost to hard to explain. He is real and when you come to Him with a heart that is open to Him. He will touch you and forgive you and bring you into His intimacy and presence.


Last night, I had a open vision and what I saw was a large underground lake. The water from the lake started to perc up from underneath and started to fill the land. Then it started to fill the valley and run to the pacific ocean. Then it went over the mountains and covered the country and touched the atlantic, artic and the Gulf of Mexico then it touched Europe and Africa and South and Central America. Then the pacific touch Asia and Australia.


Then Jesus was standing their and said to me. Just like California feeds the natio and the world, physically with fruit, that is water from underneath the ground. What is happening here will water and feed the world spiritually with my water. Much fruit, in the spirit will be produced, from my living water, that is flowing from California. But man is trying to stop it by putting up dams of religion and rejection, of what I want done. People still think it is about them not about me. You are to break the dams so that my water can flow and touch those who I need, to produce my fruit through out the world. I then saw trees growing everywhere producing spiritual fruit everywhere. The seeds of that fruit was growing and producing more fruit. Then as more fruit was being produced I saw the living water starting to cover every country in the middle east. Many people drowned but many starting eating of the fruit and they started to plant seeds to produce much fruit. What ever is dead that my water touches will becoming alive in me.

Again last night was so different from other nights. All I did when I arrived at the church was go to the front and lay in His presence. Then others came in and did the same. Before I knew it the front of the church was covered with bodies, just enjoying being with Jesus. Some people began to cry, others began to laugh and others just drifted away in the spirit to be with Him. It was like being in three different services at the same time. In the front of the church there was this strong odor which smelled like mur. It just seemed to move all over the front of the church. At times it was so strong that was all you could smell. Many words of knowledge and many words of prophecy. But the word of God was spoken and signs and wonders did follow. Matthew 11:25-26 He wants us to be child like in His presence.

Friday night Galt. God was so powerful, a man came into the meeting sat down in the back row for a few minutes then all of a sudden he came to the front and said I can't take it any more, God touched him powerfully. Later I found out that he was a back slidden minister, God restored him in power.
Some of the people stayed all night in the church laying in the presence of God it was really thick. A group came in from North Carolina and Kentucky last night, they were all blessed. We are finishing our fifth week and we plan to keep going, pastor Joe is staying with us, the more we are together the more we flow as a team, I am learning to stay out of the way. One thing this has done is expose a lot of stuff in peoples life's, many think they are fine until they see the light and the truth.
We have started using cd's for music just to give our worship people a break, sometimes they play for 2 plus hours. We are also bringing in some prophetic people to do worship to help out.
I have seen people come to the meetings and they just don't seem to get it, they have been so blinded by religion that they can't except what they are seeing, I too had a difficult time at first until I began to see the fruit (and what fruit), changed life's restored marriages, freedom in their life and joy.
We are learning (as a Church) how to host a move of God, people ministering to people, it is not about one man, it is about God visiting his people. Keep you prayer request coming we are praying for them daily.

Sunday night the Glory of God was so strong. The Lord had me speak on a few things about who He is. Then Jackie came to the church late all excited. This young lady was someone who was born again not to long ago and since the meetings nightly her whole life has changed. All her life for years was drugs and alcohol and anything that she could do to support it. Her 5 children were raised by her mother and now they are with her doing good. They are seeing the fruit of the change in her life and are starting to come around to God. She came late to church because she got a call from someone who she works for and said that they wanted to meet with her. Right away the old fears rose up what are they going to accuse her of, but she knew she had not done anything wrong and turned it over to God. Well what they were meeting her for is that they gave wanted to give her a Town and Country van. They sold it to her for 2 dollars. She couldn't wait to tell people. Then the Glory fell and started to put money in her lap and she started to weep. Then she turned around and gave it to God by putting all of it in the offering. She wanted to thank God for every thing that He has been doing for her and her family.

Claire was had cancer came and gave her testimony which Pastor Dave writes about below. But what she also did was give me a copy of all the doctor reports that shows and states that there is not one cancer left in her blood. They said that it is a miracle. Because of all of this all her sisters and brothers are starting to come to the Lord and there families are changing. It has been a witness to who Jesus is in our lives. It is just so wonderful to be obedient and to let God be God and to see His Glory and love set people free of who they think they were and to start being who they are in Him. The joy and peace of who He is can change anyone and everyone into a person who only wants more of Him. When the word and the spirit are used together for His Glory all that can happen is that signs and wonders must follow.

My nephew Mark who called me in November to tell me that he had testical cancer and was scared that he was going to die. Called me yesterday and told me that he was taking a trip accross country to see some people and to bring me tha before he was saved and healed by God and the after cat scans of his body. The doctors told Him it is a miracle and that his case has been discussed at some meeting on how he is healed. He told them that God healed him. The first show large tumors in his chest on his arm and in His kidneys. The new cat scans show no tumors at all in his body and no cancer cells in his blood. I flew to New Jersey the day that he told me and we prayed and he accepted Jesus as his savior and then we prayed for his healing and he said he felt the power of God and he knew at that moment that he was healed. He was the vice president of a large company and when the president found out about how bad the cancer was he released him of his position in the firm and was going to cut his salary by more then a hundred thousand dollars to try and force him out. Well he let him go and now people are being touched by God and are putting him into a new business and he hasn't said one word to them. They are calling him and doing all of it. He know's it is God. He is giving Him all the glory and he is reading the bible every night and all he wants is more of Jesus in his life.

Like I say the time it is about Him and not about us. Only if people could let go of who the are and being who He is in them there who lives would change. Isaah 5 verse 18: Destruction is certain for those who drag their sins behind them, tied with cords of falsehood. 19:They even mock the Holy Ond of Israel and say, "Hurry up and do something! Quick, show us what you can do. We want to see what you have planned." We need to let go of who we are and He said you are healed and sin no more.

Well I'm back, took a trip to the South, Louisiana to be with my oldest son for his ordination. The meetings are still going on very strong. We started last night our 5th week of meetings with Joe Cicchino, the testimonies are awesome.
I want to share a testimony that was given last night, Clair a women who has been coming from the beginning of the meetings in fact she was born again just before Joe came. Clair had just received bad news she had breast cancer 5 weeks ago, we prayed and she went in for tests and a small surgery. The reports were not good, so we just keep her thinking on things above, the doctors wanted her to start chemo therapy on May 4th so she was faced with a difficult decision. Clair's husband is not a believer and that didn't help, he was not in favor of any thing the doctors had to say or wanted to do. So last night Clair came in with her paper work, the doctors did another test before doing anything else, they found that the cancer was gone with no tract of it. Wait it gets even better, lets back up two weeks, Clair sister-in-law is told by the doctors that she has stage 4 cancer and tumors through out her body, Clair tells us in the church so we pray and send a prayer cloth to her, (are you ready for this) the sister-in-law goes in for her first round of chemo and by the end of the treatment the cancer and all the tumors are all gone, with no trace the doctors are baffled. The brother-in-law is a doctor and it has really blown his mind, I can't wait to meet her.
We sent a team last Sunday evening to a church up in the mountains, the Pastor just reported that they had several healing that night. I had a dream of my church sanctuary and how it was to be set up, so yesterday I changed the seating around to look like my dream, God showed me that there are going to be people coming to get healed, so I set up a section for the sick, so we can minister to them. I remember how the church in Africa had set up there church to host the sick, and I am following that same pattern. We are receiving a group from North Carolina this week and next it should be fun.
Well that is the latest update for now, there is so much more I just don't know how to put it on paper.

Subject: Fw: Week 6 from Galt

Last night about an hour before the service I layed down on the platform and just closed my eyes. I didn't realize where I was or what was happening around me. All I know was that I was in his presence. I opened my eyes which I thought were shut for about a minute and I could see that the church was full of people and they were praising the Lord and Pastor Dave was talking. Then peace and glory was just to much to understand at the moment. A couple came from Yuba city to the services for the first time. Pastor Lynn and Dave prophecied over them. Then Caroline and Brandon also had an awesome word for them. Then Pastor Lynn was led to go home and bring back something that was given to her a few days earlier by one of her neighbor's. She didn't need it but they said you might find someone who did. She came back to the church and gave it to the people from Yubba city who were having a baby and loved the outdoors and were praying for a back pack that could carry a child. That is exactly what she brought back to them. I know that God is moving because people have been coming trying to seperate the work of God and bring decension into the camp. There are some who are coming just to find fault with what is happening. So I ask everyone to pray for us. Because it says that rewards will come with persecution.

So many lives are being changed daily and that is what is important. Families getting closer together. Fathers and daughters realizing that they need that bond for a healty relationship. Peace in families which is becoming stronger. The husband of one of the people who has been healed of cancer came last night into a church for the first time in years. Came to say thank you for his wife being healed and not to suffer any more. He was touched by God and his life will never be the same again. It is all about Jesus and no man. He is our victory when we work towards being more like Him. We are nothing without Him and HIs glory. Lord just humble us more to be more like you and not like the world around us. Help us not judge those who come against us.

Also the last three days we spent an awesome time at Bethel in redding at the pastor advance and met some wonderful people who have been reading on river mail about what has been happening in Galt. God Bless all of you.

I want to encourage you that God is getting ready to do a "suddenly" get ready get your house ready for increase, shake off the heavy bands and lift up your heads, a wave is coming soon.
