|The Team from Seattle Walking into Living Free Minsitiries for the 1st time|
It was an amazing three days. When our two teams started to worship, the Presence of God was so tangible that we all felt it. The joy that we experienced flowed out the door and down the street. Every participant who came Monday night felt the river of joy, peace and love overflow onto them~the Kingdom of God was present! (Romans 14:17 says, "The Kingdom of God is not eating or drinking, but righteousness, peace and joy!)

Tuesday we were able to spend the day with about 8 of their team as we listened to their structure, their vision, and their goals. We learned how they do prayer appointments and listened to what God was saying to us about how to strengthen what we are doing in Seattle. One of our team members got to experience being the participant and she was thrilled!
Tuesday night we were blessed to be invited to one of the team member's home in the mountains for dinner. It was a lovely evening that we didn't think could be topped, but seeing herds of deer and elk on the way home, as well as a beautiful sunset made the day complete.
|Our Debrief at the Park|
Wednesday morning our team debriefed in a park. We ended up in a place of great worship as we realize how God is moving us to make ourselves more available than one time per month for people to receive prayer. We know, too, that we want to do more teaching so that people can know not just the God who saves, but also the God who heals and delivers!
|Getting Ready to Leave to Come Home|
We finished up our time with Living Free at their weekly ministry during the day. It takes a bit of a different form, as it starts with teaching by one of the team of teachers, followed up with prayer for those who desire it. I was blessed to pray for a woman who was leaving the next day to move to New York, but she had been coming to LFM for just one month and it had changed her life. She felt like God had prepared her for her move through her time with LFM.
Now that we are back in Seattle, we begin the process of debriefing with the rest of the team and praying into how God wants us to move next year. We realize that our trainings are filled with his presence and his power, and now we want to expand access to those that can't necessarily come to three weekend trainings per year.
Please pray for us as we discern our next steps. But, also celebrate that Missio Lux and Living Free Ministries are in a place of great friendship, respect and common DNA!
