Dancing Child Prophets - Team Auburn

Dancing Child Prophets - Team Auburn

The War Eagle team has arrived back in home sweet home TN, and are settling in with our families and roommates. For our last few days in Auburn, we spent a wonderful day off on Friday celebrating eating delicious food, exploring downtown Opelika, drinking GREAT coffee; and ending it all getting to prophesy over the owner of the restaurant we ate dinner at, where Netty Leach, a good friend of Grace Center and a SOSL alumni works.

Sarah saw a picture of her dancing and felt that a burden had been lifted off of her-we then came to find out she had been a dance teacher before being diagnosed with cancer over 8 years ago. About three weeks ago she’d finally been given a cancer-free diagnosis! It was so amazing to see her filled with hope and blessed that her future was filled with promise. It also happened to be my birthday, and the team did an AMAZING job honoring, loving, and celebrating me all day! It was an awesome birthday!

Sarah gives a prophetic word....

Saturday we had the privilege of spending the whole afternoon with the kids of The Oaks Church doing a creativity workshop. We had about 30 kids ages 4-12 and Karen did an amazing job starting us off by teaching on hearing God’s voice-they were totally captivated and came away knowing all four keys and writing down what they heard God say about them! Some things they heard were “princess,” “I love you so much,” and lots of amazing pictures! They were then split into two groups where the older half were with Christen learning how to express creativity through art. It was awesome to see the kids listen to God and draw a picture for themselves and then one for a friend. The younger half were with Betsy learning how to express creativity through our bodies and dance. They then swapped classes and learned what the other had learned. In both classes the kids worked through learning about comparison and forgiving anyone who may have taught them the lie that they’re not creative or aren’t good enough.  Then they learned God’s truth about creativity! They were all super brave and heard lots of amazing things from God!

Right before heading home on Sunday we spent one last morning at The Oaks for church prophesying and listening to the congregation share testimonies from the week. During testimony time, Josh decided to ask if anyone had pain their body. One woman had horrible back pain that didn’t allow her to raise her arms and constricted her movement. Karen prayed for her twice from the front and then had her stand up. As soon as she stood up, she raised her arms above her head and said her pain was completely gone!  God did so many awesome things in Auburn, and we had an amazing trip of seeing His kindness and love for all of His children. Thanks so much for praying, supporting, and following along! You can continue to pray for The Oaks church that all the work that has been done this past week and all the seeds planted will be protected and grow deep roots to flourish and grow amazing fruit! 

War Eagle!

Stopping a Moving Truck - Team Auburn

Stopping a Moving Truck - Team Auburn

Team War Eagle has been having a blast here in the great state of Alabama! The most important lesson I learned this week is that if someone says “War eagle” to you, the proper response is “War eagle.” Those words felt very strange coming out of my mouth the first time I said it, but I’m trying to be like Paul and become all things to all men.

Most of our time this week has been spent on Auburn University’s campus. Each day, we set up a table on one of the main concourses and asked the Lord to lead us as we connected with the students. We did treasure hunts where we delivered encouraging words and paintings to students that God highlighted and spread the joy of the Lord by giving away Starbursts. Miss Karen was an absolute champion while we were on campus. She wrote encouraging word after word for students with complete boldness. For one of her words, she heard God tell her to encourage someone in a truck. Even though we were on a road where we had only seen pedestrians and golf carts, a maintenance truck started driving down just a few minutes later. So Karen ran over and stopped the whole truck! She proceeded to deliver an encouraging word to the driver to which he responded, “Praise Jesus!”

Some other highlights of the week were holding personal ministry sessions focused on inner healing, delivering messages on the Father Heart, Forgiveness, and UGBs, and spending about four hours prophesying over members of the congregation and the community. We had a blast swapping stories of delivering words of knowledge and watching people find freedom from the cycle of fear, shame, and control.

God is good! We’re super excited to see what He will do the rest of the week. On Saturday, we’ll be running a creative arts and dance workshop for about 20 kids from age 4-12. On Sunday, we’ll be prophesying over the church and sharing testimonies of all the amazing things that’s happened throughout the week. Pray for the Holy Spirit to continue filling our hearts with passion and boldness. Pray for the chains of fear, shame, and control to be broken off the members of The Oaks church. And pray for Betsy as she turns 24 on Friday! Love you all. War eagle.

Some Southern Hospitality - Team Auburn

Some Southern Hospitality - Team Auburn

We arrived here in Opelika, Alabama on Friday afternoon and were greeted by some of the best hospitality I’ve ever experienced. Josh and Ginger Hallmark as well as other from the leadership team of The Oaks Church, greeted us with dinner, fellowship, and a beautiful home to stay in with lots of space, a beautiful view, and even some chickens!

We spent Saturday working with The Exodus Ranch, run by Joe and Shelley Tufts, which is a non-profit that works to take in children who need a safe home where they are loved back to life. We had the honor of helping this ministry practically by cleaning and doing other odds and ends on their new property to help them get move in ready! 

Sunday we had the privilege of prophesying over about 30 groups of people before church, where we saw God do incredible things with amazing revelation and hearts being touched by His love in ways they hadn’t been before! Later that evening, Ellen did an amazing job at giving a teaching on the prophetic and the entire church was activated to prophesy! Each person (including most of the kids and teens!) there ended up giving over 20 prophetic words once the night was over through prophetic games! It was so wonderful to see people come to the realization that they could hear God’s voice, and that God wants to talk to each one of them.  This congregation is SO incredibly hungry and we’re really excited to see what else God has for this church as we continue ministering and teaching throughout the week.

Please be praying for our team as we continue this week. We’ll be on Auburn University’s campus with a ministry booth praying, prophesying, and doing whatever else God wants to do! Please pray for favor, open hearts and ears, and that there will be a hunger in the students! Also, we’ll be doing some teaching on Wednesday night at The Oaks Church on heart healing, so you can pray for the hearts to be prepared ahead of time by the Holy Spirit to receive this teaching!

Outreach 2016

Outreach 2016

What does Outreach look like for the School of Supernatural Life?

 

It looks like our students taking the LOVE that they have experienced and their lives which have been transformed in the last months, to churches and ministries around the world. They will be encouraging leaders and communities through teaching, ministry, prophecy and mostly just by being carriers of the goodness of a loving Father. It isn't as much about what they do, but who they are and who they bring with them. Trips this year range from 10-21 days and are in  5 countries (including 3 in the US).

 
Two-thirds of God’s name is GO...
— Lyle Phillips

71 students and leaders are now literally around the world and since God is not bound by time or space, we get to enter into the synergy of our body of students hugging the world with the kindness, love and mercy of Father God. They are in Iceland, South Africa, United Kingdom, Australia, Jackson, MS, Auburn, AL and right here in Nashville.

You can follow along on this blog to read more about their trips in the upcoming weeks and follow Instagram for more amazing pictures.
