“44 The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field” - Matthew 13:44
When I started this new journey with God, I always had Matthew 13:44 on my heart. Leaving my successful track in life, quitting my job, leaving my friends and church... I thought I had “sold” all that I had to buy the field. Through this school, God has been digging a well too deep for me to even see. Through the deliverance of religiosity and pain, God has offered me His hand to marry His heart for eternity. He has made me a lovesick man for the creator of the Universe. In John 17, God reveals His desire is for us to be with Him where He is, to be one with Him as He is One with the Father. This was the same glimpse that King David saw as he was the one man after God’s own Heart. The intimacy that David encountered captured the revelation of the Heart of Jesus as He states in Psalms 27:
4 One thing have I asked of the LORD,
that will I seek after:
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD
and to inquire in his temple.
5For he will hide me in his shelter
in the day of trouble;
he will conceal me under the cover of his tent;
he will lift me high upon a rock.
6And now my head shall be lifted up
above my enemies all around me,
and I will offer in his tent
sacrifices with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make melody to the LORD.
In the same way, I’ve been given this revelation of what it means to capture the Kingdom in my heart. What I had sold was external and much like trinkets compared to the heart that God so long desired. In this season I feel the Lord has called me to lose more than what I’ve given up… He’s asked me to lose my reputation and my identity in this world…To be persecuted as He so expects the world to react in John 15. In the world’s capital of humanism and liberal man-centered philosophy, I expect to be spat on and hated… but it doesn’t compared to the joy of salvation that the Lord will reveal.
An interviewer once asked the legendary Brother Yun how he underwent the persecution, torture, imprisonment & pain as a missionary in China. This is a man who has given his life to the unprecedented growth of the underground church in China with 1 million plus home churches. He answered with a smile:

God is calling a generation of lovesick worshippers, Nazarites & Shulamites, wholly and fully given to the dreams of God’s heart for Love, Justice, & Righteousness. God is on the move and I praise God that you all are beside me.
Within 48 hours, all seven outreach teams will be launching off to the nations. We will be heading to 5 different countries with a single-minded purpose to preach the Gospel and bring down the strongholds of injustice & secular humanism. Revival is what is driving our hearts for these schools. Your prayers are being invested into a move of God that is sweeping not only the 40+ people in our school, but also the hundreds and maybe thousands we will be affecting on outreach. So on behalf of my team, thank you for all you that have contacted me to walk with me in prayer & financially. I know that there are some of you who have been praying for me in the secret, and the fruit over my life this season is proof of that. A million thank you’s!
As you know, my own team will be hitting up the North East of our own country to minister to the Ivy League Universities. We will be spreading the Love of God to the brightest minds in the world. Our only expectation is for God to move and for us to join in on what He’s already doing in the New England area. We will be working with campus ministries & houses of prayer in Yale, Harvard, Brown, MIT, UPenn & Berklee school of Music. Boston has close to 300,000 college students with a 1% Christian community. The height of secular humanism is birthed from this very city. Any developments to the liberal philosophies clouding the minds of America are all birthed here. This city is a modern day Greece & Rome as it were to the Apostle Paul. But we believe that Jesus will lead the way, for the Word of God says that the spirit that raised Christ from the dead is in us (Romans 8:11). We won’t be there to argue, but to introduce people to the presence of the Living God and preach the truth of our Savior.
With my seven other team members, we will be traveling for a minimum of 10 weeks. We as a team are leaving it open for God to extend this outreach to however long He desires. There are more than enough Universities in America that we feel God can use us for, but only according to what God desires. For the first 10 weeks of our outreach, my total costs for this outreach will be $3400. I humbly ask that you walk with me in the following ways:
- Prayer - For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12) We truly believe that prayer will be our greatest weapon. So please walk with us by covering our team with prayer. Please let me know if you can support us in this way so that we can pray for you as well.
- Monthly Donation – With faith, I believe the Lord has called me to a longer period of my life than just this outreach. I humbly ask that you consider walking with me month to month with what the Lord is doing. Donations as little as $30/month ($1/day) will help me run this race no longer from journey to journey, but toward a Kingdom Journey. Please email me for instructions at email@example.com
- One time Donation – Please email me for instructions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you again for reading thus far and being a part of my life. God is going to do amazing things on this outreach and I look forward to you all walking aside with us. I can’t wait to be tested and tried to see the work of God in America, and to encourage you all that the same eternal God is right beside you. I will continue to update this blog as we travel around the North East !
