Dear Friends and Family,
For the past four years I have had the privilege of speaking at Warrior Fest, an annual conference hosted by my friend Perry Stone. Every spring and summer, he and his team at Omega Center International host events called “Warrior Fests” which several thousand teens attend to experience a touch from God. I am always amazed at the atmosphere that is fostered in each service; it is what I call a “safe space” where the hurting and broken can find hope and reassurance in Christ. Over 3000 young people packed the facility for three days of worship and ministry. Many were first-time attendees who came at the behest of parents and pastors. That being the case, they brought with them all of their “issues,” which is exactly what I preached about. The woman with the issue of blood in Mark 5 was a perfect example. I entitled the message “Cancel My Subscription to Your Issues.” As expected, the Word of God did what only it can do, piercing the hearts of those who had been enslaved by past and present unresolved issues in their lives. Just as the woman in the story, these broken ones came forward desperate for a touch from heaven, believing that their faith would change everything. The time of personal ministry at the altar lasted for almost 2 hours.

I am always surprised with how many young people at the altar are dealing with deep-seated issues of rejection, addiction and depression. During this time of ministry, the teens would grab me wanting only to be hugged. Through tears they expressed the great pain they had experienced from broken families, abuse and addiction. The emotion that washed over me, hearing their stories and listening to their pain impacted me like never before. Each prayer offered and each hug given was infused with a supernatural impartation that overwhelmed and at times brought them to their knees. Jesus was indeed present and He was doing good to every person who responded to Him in faith.

I will begin my international travel schedule in August. Brazil has become a incredible harvest eld for our outreaches. By the end of the year I will have held over 70 meetings all over this nation. This face-to-face time with a generation has not only encouraged me but has proven to me that God’s mercy continues to be poured out on all who would call on His name.
Thanks for helping reach a generation for Jesus!
