Healing the Broken & Setting Captives Free

Saturday morning, March 14, 2014

The excitement is mounting. A small team of Navigators take off today for Nicaragua on a week long mission trip to help 60 Nicaraguan Pastors and their wives. Other team members will be helping these couples in their marital communication by taking them through the Five Love Languages material.

The Mission of the Messiah was first prophesied in 600 BC by Isaiah when he wrote that the Chosen One was coming to bring good news to the poor, heal the brokenhearted, and set captives free. As if this wasn't enough, he also said that the these freed and healed ones would go on to rebuild the ancient ruins, raise up the former devastations, and repair the ruined cities. (Isaiah 61:1-4) Jesus claimed He was the One Isaiah wrote about in Luke 4:18-19. As you know from previous communications, God has allowed me to experience His healing freedom and called me to carry His healing ministry to His people in the cities across the US and to the broken people of our hurting world.

So after the Five Love Languages teaching, I'll be spending a day and a half training the first 30 Pastors and their spouses' in listening and inner-healing prayer. After a day off to catch our breath, we'll do a second training for the 30 remaining couples. Our Nav team members will co-labor in this training and be available to meet with people one-to-one. Our goal in this facet of the conference will be three-fold:
  1. Help the Pastors and wives in their own healing and freedom from wounds of the past,
  2. Train them to facilitate this ministry with people in their families, congregations & neighborhoods,
  3. See this ministry multiply throughout this war torn country and touch many lives.

I want to invite you to pray and ask the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to meet us in a very special way during our week in Nicaragua by working deeply in each heart. Ask that He would heal and equip the 60 pastoral couples and multiply His healing freedom throughout this country of six million for the praise of His glory.
