Testimonies from the Tour of Disciples of Worship & School of Worship in the North!!!!

The last 2 weeks joining with Teen Mania's School of Worship in Texas & Eva Jeanette, Christian Sami Musician from Karasjok, & Svein Slettevolt Buss Reiser AS, & intercessors Jim & Henriette Freegard, the 32 of us traveled through the North bringing God's presence leading people to salvation healing emotionally & physically. Many of us were transformed as well on this trip. 

We were able to minister to over 500 people in the small places in the North, 14 people committed their lives to Jesus, over 10 people experienced physical miraculous healings, and at least 5 people experienced the baptism of Holy Spirit to empower them to be his witnesses to the utter most parts of the earth, and many others encouraged & challenged to walk with Jesus more closely. 

Here are some of the testimonies from our team: 

"The Lord has really been growing me in spiritual gifts on this trip to Norway. The Lord has given me the opportunity to minister to others through prophetic word and he has drawn me deeper into His intimacy through spiritual freedom and gifting. I don’t think the gifts themselves brought me deeper with Jesus as much as surrendering these areas to Him brought freedom.
I also feel strongly about revival in Norway. I believe Norway is going to front the world wide revival of the Body of Christ. The Lord is going to raise up a people from Norway and they are going to at least in part fulfill Isaiah 61:4. They are going to rebuild old ruins and this revival will spread like a fire through the rest of Europe and the world. I believe this is the Lord preparing His bride for His imminent return."

"The first week we were in Norway, the Lord kept putting Isaiah 60 on my heart. During the Harstad prayer conference, Mr. Williams asked if I had something to share with everyone. I said “I don’t think so but I’ll pray and see.” The Lord then reavealed to me that I was suppose to share Isaiah 60 with the people. Verse 10 says “…so that men may bring the wealth of the nations.” The Lord then revealed to Mary that many people were coming to Norway from all over the world to bring the wealth & treasures of wisdom of the Gospel and knowing God intimately to help wake up the people of Norway to their identity."

"In Karasjok after the concert during ministry time, a Sami lady was the first one to come to the altar. She had Alzheimer’s disease, so we prayed for her. Her eyes seemed to be dead & dull. Then after a while the two ladies with her who led the old lady to the altar started crying, as the lady began to speak. They told us she was better, and there was a significant difference in her eyes. A new sparkle of life and she was actually smiling.
We also prayed for a girl who had pain in her knee. So we prayed and the pain left instantly! I talked to a woman who told me that this was a huge blessing to her She was originally from another nation, where she used to attend church services several days per week. She doesn’t have that opportunity here. But she flet that the Holy Spirit refreshed her tonight and filled her with a new hope of revival to happen in Karasjok."

"In Karasjok we put a choir together and while our group was singing I thought I kept seeing hands go up in praise and as a sign of surrender to the Lord. When the movements caught my eye I would look in the direction but my physical eyes didn’t see them. Many others on our team saw the same thing. I realized it was my spirit  seeing what God was doing in their hearts. I felt chains being broken, healings and more. At the end of the service I received hugs from mostly Sami people with tears in their eyes. Then I met two girls. One of them asked Jesus to come into her heart. The other really liked the service but was more hesitant but she said that she might give it a try."

"The Lord has stirred up so much faith in my heart since we have arrived here in Norway.  My eyes have been unveiled to so much darkness in this country and it continues to tug on my heart every day! There is so much that I can testify about, having the privilege to be on this trip is a testimony in itself.  I have had the chance to speak into teenage girls here and they are SO thirsty for The Lord and there is so little Christianity for them to feed off of.  Literally heart breaking.. It makes me ask myself what am I doing? I have the gift of Gods great love and there are people everywhere who have NO IDEA who Jesus Christ even is.  The Lord has put the passion for this nation on my heart. After the encouragement of a girl I met at our first conference I have been nothing but excited for what God is stirring up. She came up to me after worship and expressed how touched she was by the presence of God, and went on telling me of how much she loved what we brought to Norway. I explained that its not us or the music, it is the power of The Lord touching this Unreached nation.
If The Lord can move on her heart in such a way, imagine what He is going to do for this whole generation!!!"
With this God continues to reveal this scripture to me..
•Isaiah 61:11
"For as the soil makes the sprout come up an a garden causes seeds to grow, so the sovereign Lord will make righteousness and praise rise up before all nations."
~Amanda Keener

  "God has done some amazing things in my life on this trip already and I'm not even finished yet. Starting out this trip I knew that it was going to be different from the usual missions trip, but I did not realize that it was going to be as different as it has been.  During this trip i have not only participated in ministering to other people but at the same time everything has been ministering to me on a level that I never expected.  God used me do things such as speaking prophecies over people, leading people into worship, and even helping to lead two people to receive the gift of tongues! All through this God has reaffirmed His intense love for me in my heart by showing me how He can and will use me during this trip and for the rest of my life. God has also given me visions of comfort and the love of the Father to assure me that he is proud of me and will always love me no matter what. It's really been amazing and I can't wait to see what He will do next."

"This trip has been amazing so far and the Lord has done a lot. I could testify about so
many different things but I’ll just share one - Yesterday I was walking at the YWAM base and I twisted my ankle pretty badly. This morning while we were praying Charlie asked if there was anything he could pray about for me and I told him about my ankle then we prayed. At first it didn’t feel any different but I still continued to have faith in the Lord’s ability to heal me. Approximately 12 hours later, my ankle is completely healed and pain free. God is good!"

"Today I was able to be recognize the “gold” in other people. While doing Ministry in the streets of Tromsø, the Holy Spirit manifested himself through me. He gave me a vision of a girl with two distinct features; long blonde hair and blue eyes. I knew that I wouldn't have to search hard for her, that we would just cross paths. And that's exactly what happened. I was crossing the street and notice this girl standing alone, when I saw her, I knew she was the one from my vision. I approached her and gave her prophetic encouragement. I expressed the love of the Father for her. I shared that she was created in His image and how he delights in her. I was even able to pray for her. Her eyes watered. God moved & touched her heart. (Street Ministry Testimony # 1)
Evangelism is giving people a taste of God's goodness. It's amazing what God can do both in and through you. Not only was I able to share a prophetic word but I witnessed a miracle first hand. Walking through the city of Tromsø, I saw a man walking on the opposite side of the road limping. With no second to think, the Spirit led me. I was walking behind the group I was in and yelled for them to follow. He was walking up a hill and I had to run to catch up, and I finally did at the top. I introduced myself and explained how I saw him limping and wanted to pray for him. He was receptive and allowed me to. We laid hands on his leg and declared healing. When we finished praying I stood to face him, he just looked at me and suddenly his face literally lit up. He began walking, dancing and even jumping. After he fell to his knees and hugged me. I couldn´t help myself, I began to cry. He said it was a miracle and asked where I got my power from. A door was open for us to minister the love of Jesus Christ. He told us that he was an Atheist, but after this personal experience of miraculous healing, he believed. GOD IS GOOD!" (Street Ministry Testimony # 2)

5 Salvations in Kasfjord!

We have had some incredible weeks. Last weekend there was an evangelist from Oslo who came to the Kasfjord Baptist Church and had meetings as we led worship. There were a few people who were miraculously healed in their body & 2 people gave their lives to Jesus. One of them was a girl we have been talking to during our times of worship in Kasfjord. It was amazing to see the seeds planted already bring about a spiritual harvest.

Teen Mania's School of Worship from Texas has now joined us as we travel for 2 weeks together throughout the North & Finnmark. This weekend we led worship together for the Prayer Conference at Rivermont in Harstad. Such powerful times of prayer together we experience! Last night we did a concert in the church with music, dance, & testimonies. People from all over attended from Borkenes, Lofoten, Harstad, etc... many were encouraged in their walk with God and 5 people gave there life to Jesus for the first time!!!

God is good!!! Now we travel up to Borgen YWAM Base to do some ministry in Tromsø.
