The Year of Eternal Change

Hello Everyone!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and has been taking care! Sorry for such a delay, I had a horrible mishap and spilled good ol’ Sprite on my laptop. By the grace of God, this laptop is still running (for now), with sticky keys of course. Regardless, since I began writing this letter, it’s very bittersweet to say that we’ve come to an end with our outreach. After our encounter @ Montclair State University religions class, God continued to use us in the community surrounding the Resting Place House of Prayer. We poured into the churches as God continued to heal and deliver and once again was graced to witness denomination lines dissolve on campuses. All in all, our time in NJ was a testimony that God is on the move and pouring out His blueprints for a spotless Bride for His Son.

We next traveled to our last outreach location in Washington D.C.  For 3 days we ran with the Justice House of Prayer & YWAM base to pray for the health care battle in the Senate. It was such an honor to war in the spirit with the prayer warriors of D.C.  Right in our own backyard are intercessors and missionaries that pray for our nations capitol everyday for God to bring His righteousness to our country. Testimony after testimony they shared of God shifting votes on abortion, righteous legislation, and justice issues that have come across the tables of our Supreme Court justices & government officials. That very weekend, we had the honor to rumble in the spirit with Lou Engle & Senator Brownback of Kansas. It was so reassuring to hear from one of our own senators that there are righteous men in our Senate and Congress warring in the spirit through prayer as well. They as Christians know that government is a spiritual battle and not mere votes & people pleasing policies. News was passed to us that congressman & woman from the House have been holding prayer meetings for the Senate that become so packed, it becomes a stand only room. Though the battle is still on, we are not alone in our prayers. In D.C. we also went to the Supreme Court and had a LIFE siege praying for the ending of abortion. It was overwhelming to stand at the steps of the very establishment that determines life or death upon this great nation. Right now, the health bill is on the fringes of life or death depending on issues such as abortion. Through it all, it was awesome to know that this spiritual battle we war in not only affects the people on the streets, but shift governments and our children’s futures. Our nation at face value may seem as though the standard of justice & righteousness is crumbling, but behind the scenes there are the few that are holding the lines in prayer. Sodom and Gomorrah wasn’t destroyed because their sin was too heinous nor unredeemable, rather it was because there weren’t enough righteous ones. From where we were standing in D.C., there are righteous ones that have dedicated their lives for this once fiercely God fearing nation.




With our last week of outreach, we flew to Kansas City to join in on the outpouring of the Holy Spirit that is going on at the International House of Prayer. For a whole month, God has been pouring out His spirit in a mighty way. People have been getting delivered, healed and saved every single day at this house of prayer. Testimonies from all over the world are pouring in as they have been watching the live web stream (www.ihop.org) As we went to debrief, we prayed, soaked in the presence of God, and praised the Lord for all that He’s done through us on this outreach. From sparking future revivalists burn and take control of Yale Campus (Testimonies are still coming in about their forward movement), the salvations & healings we’ve witnessed on the streets, The power of God showing up in Salem, Massachusetts’ Haunted Happenings, Taking part and witnessing prayer push back the unrighteous attempt of marriage in Maine, and preaching the gospel and healing the sick in front of a secular religions class @ MSU, it has all been glory to the Lord. And through all these testimonies, you have all been lifted up in prayer to our Lord by our team in thanksgiving for the labor you all have done in prayer. It is not because we are special, nor bolder than others, but rather God’s positioned us to receive the faith He so freely gives. In Ephesians 2, God says we have no reason to boast because even the faith in our God is given by Himself. I hope that our short outreach of three months was a spectacle of the Kingdom of God in each and every one of us. The healings and salvations we encountered was a small taste of the fullness of God in us when we put faith in our ever giving God, to receive even larger faith in the “greater works than these” Jesus said we’d do. In Luke 17:6, Jesus said that “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it will obey you”. From all of our experiences on this outreach, I can surely say that just having faith that God will give us more faith in any situation is small as a mustard seed.




I’m home now, and I’ve given myself till January 31st, to fast, pray, and be with my family till I hear from the Lord where He wants me to go. I ask that you please cover me in the spirit through prayer. The Fire & Fragrance School is now preparing to equip the second generation of students, and it’s truly been an honor to be part of the first fruits of God’s mighty plan for marrying the prayer & missions movement. I hope that you all receive the crown of praise, when I speak on behalf of my school that we are honored to have run with a group like you all for this school’s first year. I never knew that leaving my Job, family, and friends, would encompass the path of testimonies He’s led me through. When I wrote my first letter, Matthew 13:44 - The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field. 2009 will always be a marker in my life that this verse is more real than life itself, because the Kingdom of Heaven is what I found. As I stay home, I’ll be spending time with friends, family and sharing my testimony wherever the Lord leads. I’ll be continuing to keep this blog open and my heart open to the voice of the Lord.

I hope to see you all soon!

Love you all more than you know,

Jasen
