Pastor/First Lady,
 
On December 11, 2017, you shared with LFM (through the Word of Encouragement), that 2018 is the Year of Rain!!! “For that which was longed promised, that which you have longed for and have seen and waited for is about to come to pass.”  Well, I am happy to report that my rain has begun and on May 17, 2018, my wait will be over!!! Today, I received official notification that I have been promoted to Program Manager of the Quality Assurance Department within our Division, with an official start date of May 17, 2018.
 
I am a firm believer that what God has for you is for you!!!  Over the past 18 months, God has been preparing me for this opportunity of a lifetime and breaking any barriers that stood in my way. To begin, I was accepted as a candidate for the Certified Public Manager Program for the State of South Carolina.  A program in which I was not qualified to attend. You see, this program was designed for current managers of the state.  I, at the time of acceptance, was not a manager, but no one ever questioned that.  And, on May 16, 2018, I will receive my credentials as a Certified Public Manager–an accolade that is recognized nationwide.
 
In addition, when I initially applied for my supervisors’ position, my application was not forwarded to the hiring manager for me to be afforded an opportunity to interview.  However, a week after receiving the notification that I did not meet the minimum qualifications for the job, an email was sent indicating that there was an error with the original posting and, if interested, I could reapply.  So, I did. This time, my application made the “cut.”  I was afforded an interview and was awarded the job!  All within a two-week timeframe.  To God Be the Glory!!!!
 
And, the story does not end there.  When I arrived home today, I received an unexpected check in the mail!!! 
 
As I type this, I am overcome with emotion and I am sure I am leaving out something. But, I couldn’t wait to share the wonderful news of how good my God has been!! 
 
I sit in expectation of more to come!!!
 
God Bless,

After 31 years of standing on the word of the Lord Jesus Christ, God reversed dishonorable discharge into an honorable discharge from the military. As a result I’m able to seek medical treatment assistance from the VA hospital. Moreover, I’m now entitled to all the benefits that comes with an honorable discharge Praise God.

Sometime back on one of the periscope  calls pastor prayed and said God was going to continue to elevate me in area of work. I was  temporarily promoted to the Civilian  Personnel Division Chief I have been praying to that I would receive this as a permanent position. I know I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me and the timing worked out so I know it was God.  I continue to seek peace and confirmation that comes with knowing this is His will. I started there in fall of 2016 and it’s only been 18 months and I’ve been promoted twice. Extremely humbled and equally amazed at what God is doing.

You ministered to me awhile back that I would have unusual kindness and favor. I received a phone call from one of my cousins and asked how I was going to pay my house payment. My cousin agreed to pay my house payment.
WOW look at God speak through you on my behalf. Praise the Lord for unusual kindness and favor.Thank you and LFM for everything.

    As you know or may not know I have been in a new position since the middle of Nov of 2017.  I have been praying for 10 years for the Lord to move from the front desk but nothing ever came.  Finally my Director (not my manager) was talking one day and mentioned that she had to find someone for the Billing and Coding position and I spoke up and told her that I would do it.  She agreed and talked it over with my manager.  The position came with a pay raise and own office even though I was not qualified for it.  A memo came out last week that all persons that had access to patients chart in a manner of billing needed to be Certified Billing and Coding personnel.  Instead of my now boss finding another person that is certified to take my position my boss is sending me to class to become a Certified Coder and the Company is paying for it!!  I read my “RECEIVING THE ABUNDANCE” decree every day!  I have it right over my computer with my name highlighted.  I have a coworker that comes in my office now and wants to know what has my Pastor sent out because she wants a copy of it..lol.   I know that what I have longed for and have seen and waited for is about to come to pass! The Lord has already told me to not get comfortable with this because He has much more in store for me!  I am His treasured possession and I belong to Him! Thank you Pastor and 1st Lady for always being that guiding light and always speaking a God sent word into my life.  Love you both dearly!

September 12th of 2016 I was shopping at my local grocery store and fell  due to water on the floor and fractured my knee. I reached out to their insurance company of the local grocery store  asking about filing a claim to pay for the medical expenses. The offer I received would not even cover the CT scan. The business office at the hospital  suggested I consult a lawyer to get the insurance  company to pay the bills. I attended Word Explosion was wearing a knee brace and decided to act in faith and remove it. After a year the lawyer finally called and asked what I wanted from the insurance company. I asked that the insurance company to accept responsibility for the medical expenses, and to cover their expenses.  THIS YEAR that company has finally offered a settlement which is 10 times the amount of the All the expenses combined and 25 times the original offer!!!

First of all, I’ll say this.. I’m in no way bragging on me. Promotion comes from the LORD. Any ability I have or favor I was shown comes from HIM. 2016 was a traumatic year for me. I’ll not go into details, but it was bad. I really began leaning on the LORD and became consistent with tithing and giving money to others in faith in addition to tithe. I began a new journey by moving to an area with no employment. I got hired November 2016, with no experience at all in the job category. In less than 2 months, I was promoted to another position within the same company. Another 2 months passed and I was promoted to lead of the area I started in (same company). Later the same year, I received a significant raise. And again in about a years time after my start date, I’ve been promoted again to an office job, salary position, all in the same company. Increase after increase after increase.. all with little or no experience in each position. That’s the favor of GOD!!!! And That’s just the beginning. I will continue to tithe and give more and more. At this rate, I’ll own the company soon. GLORY BE TO THE MOST HIGH. He gives the increase and causes a harvest of great generosity in us.

Hearing from the Lord, November 21, 2017.

The Lord woke me up about 2:30 am and I went and got my notebook and pen.  Prayed in the Spirit for a moment, then just listened.   He directed me to Isaiah 64:11.  It says, The holy and beautiful Temple where our ancestors praised you has been burned down, and all the things of beauty are destroyed.”  At first (being 2:30 am), I thought…  what?  Did I miss something?   Then I prayed in the spirit again briefly then I got this following word, along with Instruction to whomever reads it.

The instruction is:

There is one place written where it has a personal name.  In that location, whomever is reading shall put their own name in there instead.

Then the Lord said,

This was an image of the church. (Isaiah 64:11*) My body.  My church had become desolate, overrun, segregated, separated, and condemned.  But no longer.  I am raising them up.  An army of prayer warriors.  My kings and priests are silent no longer.  The words of their mouth have been heard.  Their outcries have been heard and no longer will the enemy overrun them.  The temple is no longer destroyed.  For I have been lifted up in great expectation and I will meet and exceed those expectations.  I will surpass your goals and dreams.  My body, My church is lifted up with Me.  When I am lifted up, you are lifted up.

For we are one.  No longer are you down trodden and disconnected.  No longer are you defeated and disturbed.  For I am strong and mighty and I will not be ashamed of my church. You, church, are strong and mighty.  A great reckoning.  Mighty!!  Let the enemy shake and cower.  For the time has come.  The outreach has begun.  My word is spreading.  That means I am spreading.  I am being outstretched to all the lands.  Can you not feel my strength and might?  The enemy can literally do no-thing to stop it.  Even their plans to slow it have failed.  I cannot be stopped.  Therefore, you church, you body, you (your name here) cannot be stopped.  Let the nations hear and tremble.  I, THE LORD, SHALL NOT BE STOPPED.  I am mighty and I will no longer let My people be ashamed.  Rise up church.  Rise up my people. Be alive.  Be strong.  Be courageous.  I have spoken.  It is finished! It is finished! It is finished and complete, says The Lord of Hosts.  Amen.

After diligently going over the prophesied of God from pastor A.L. Downing, I have been receiving financial income from uncommon avenues. Pastor Downing prophesied that great blessing of financial wealth is flowing into my life on a ridiculous level. Just recently, I have received $300 from an unusually source-. Praise God the supernatural financial wealth flow has started. I do not despise small starts. “this is the start of the million dollar flow of financial wealth prophesied into my life by A.L. Downing”

After attending Living Faith Ministries for several weeks, Pastor Downing ask  if I would setup the on-line video streaming system. However, at that time, I did not know anything about online video streaming . However, after receiving my assignment from the  Lord through Pastor Downing,  I immediately began to pray in the Holy Spirit.

Afterwards I started downloading solutions by the Holy Spirit.

Now you are experiencing the newly designed website and streaming video service through the power of the Holy Spirit wisdom. Keep in mind I never designed and implemented a complex project of Audio/Video and website design.

Praise God and the Lord Jesus Christ!
