Missions Trip to Texas, Part 4


Before we left Spokane, my ministry partner said that our missions trip would only be one week. The Spirit prompted her to say this, but I couldn’t believe how that would be possible.

We drove non-stop between Butte, Montana and Dallas, Texas on day 2.

That’s 23 hours of continuous driving. We took turns sleeping in the back seat during the night while another person drove. We purposely spent the least money possible to complete our mission.

We were intermittently fasting and praying for revival for each city and church we passed as well as praying individually with specific people that God pointed out to us along the way. We played praise music and sermons from YouTube, and we shared our testimonies of what God had done in our lives in the past. The time went quickly, and we experienced supernatural joy.

Navigating through the snowy pass of Montana was something else. My husband said I would never make it through the pass without snow tires. I told him I already made it through the pass. God instructed us how fast to drive, and which lane to be in. First He prompted us, “Stay in the left lane and go 45 mph.” It was a 70 mph zone, but we went ahead and obeyed God. Within two minutes, there was black ice. We were perfectly fine as we continued to follow specific instructions from the Lord: get into the right lane and go 55mph, follow the truck this specific distance away, speed up to 65mph, slow down to 45mph.

When God is with you, nothing can truly thwart what He intends to do through you. We felt His presence tangibly in the car. We made it from Spokane, Washington to Dallas, Texas in a day and a half. We stayed with some friends in Dallas. They are like family to me. First we ate some scrambled eggs at their house, and we were so grateful for a hot meal after two solid days of periodic fasting and/or eating nothing but the few snacks we had brought–crackers, sausage, cheese, and bran muffins. Then we took a nap. Later we visited with my friends, sharing our testimonies.

The next day (day 3), the man of the house told us he felt he had spent 24 hours with God. He had been particularly impressed with the beautiful testimonies of my main ministry partner, who has the love of Father God. The love of the Heavenly Father truly shines out of her face, and her humble words are full of power and conviction. God had let her know that throughout this trip, she would feel the ground shake spiritually under her feet every time she stepped out of the car. This happened just like He said!

I believe the main reason we went on this quick missions trip to Texas was to pray for revival for the nation. If you take a look at the map of the United States and where we went, you can see that we covered a considerable distance. I hope and pray that other people circled the eastern half of the country in the same way, ministering and sharing Jesus, breaking the power of the enemy over each city and town.

What God did through this trip was earth-shattering. Like Jesus said, “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear.” (John 16:12) Those of you who have never experienced spiritual warfare will not believe the things that happened in the Spirit on this trip. Spiritual warfare is territorial, and we moved so fast that the enemy was unprepared for what we did. Serious intercession through the Holy Spirit broke demonic strongholds that had kept different cities in bondage.

Stay tuned for part 5 of our missions trip to Texas.

      Supernatural joy and peace are wonderful to experience, especially in the midst of suffering. When we can access the Holy Spirit’s comfort, we are able to bring that comfort to others.
