Timely for a time such as this!
God has called us back to New York, specifically to the city of Nyack in Rockland County.
This is our sixth trip to Nyack from Miami.
The dates are September 15 – November 14th.
Our journeys began four years ago during visits to our daughter who was attending college in New York City.
I thought I would never have a desire to minister in big cities, but God not only gave us a love for New York, but revealed that He is doing a great work in the northeast.
Through a mutual friend we got connected with David Kim, pastor of Silver Springs Vineyard Church of Nyack.
Nyack is 50 minutes north of Manhattan on the Hudson River.
Through Pastor David we have met wonderful people in Rockland County.
With each trip God has increased the work which He is dynamically accomplishing with those inside and outside the churches of Rockland County.
New York City and Nyack both share in a rich revival history.
In 1857, God called Jeremiah Lamphere to initiate one of America’s Great Awakenings in Southern Manhattan near Wall Street.
In 1882, one of the foremost figure in the American missionary movement, AB Simpson, founded Nyack College as a training school for missionaries to fulfill the Great Commission of world evangelization.
Nyack College was the first Bible College in the USA.
The wells of revival dug by these great works have created an open heaven in this part of the country conducive to yet another revival which will impact the nation and the world.
In one of our trips we met Pastor Greg Manalli, of Fellowship of Life Church, in Cheshire, Connecticut.
He has prayed for revival in the northeast for more than thirty years.
Pastor Greg showed us three paintings of a vision which he received in 1980’s,
In them, the bellows of God blew revival winds into the New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts area with a great resultant harvest of souls.
The northeast is uniquely situated for a move of God which can touch millions at one time. There is no other region like it.
Boston, Philadelphia, New York City, Baltimore, and Washington DC, are all along the 1 -95 corridor and just hours from each other. Breaking revival in one area will quickly spread through this corridor.
With the social media phenomena the effects of a northeast revival will be explosive.
It is to this area that God continues to send Mary and me back, again and again.
The trips are expensive because we deal with two set of bills, one for New York and another for Miami.

Yesterday, we took part in Thirsty Thursday.
This bi monthly event is headed up by a number of Christian college students from Nyack.
In this event the group play worship music at the Nyack Gazebo, prays together and then go in groups to the streets to share the love of Jesus.
After that it’s on to a pizza joint to warm up and get fellowship.
The night was especially cold, drizzly and foggy.
The temperature was in the 50’s and we froze our behinds off.
Nonetheless, during the warmth of the worship music spilling from the gazebo, occasional onlookers stopped and listen.
One took a song sheet and joined us.
Another guy who plays guitar joined us.
At the end, we had twenty minutes to walk the streets and share Jesus.
My group had Gina Choi and another girl by the name of Carlie.
Immediately, God’s Spirit pointed a young woman sitting on the bench while her child played close to the gazebo.
As we approached her I said, “Excuse me, I am pastor from Miami and God speaks to me, and I felt I had something for you. Would it be okay, if I share it with you?”
A bit surprised, taken aback, and hesitant, she said okay.
I said, “I see two musical notes together, does this mean anything to you?’”
I was surprised, when she pleasantly startled replied, “Well I have two children and they are both in dancing.”
From that word we prayed more for her and her kids.
Those five minutes were remarkably powerful. This girl was deeply impacted by what occurred, and it had all come from a simple word from the Holy Spirit.
From there as we crossed the street we spotted and man struggling to move on a walker. His limp was prominent and his steps were very slow.
There was a younger woman, fashionably dressed assisting him.
My friend Gina Choi felt led to pray for him.
Walking up to them, Gina boldly stepped up and if she could.
The fashionable woman, broke out into a big grin.
She was a Spirit filled Christian.
She said that she had been tempted not to go out because of the cold but something told her to. She was so grateful to us for praying for her friend. The man also wanted prayer. God gave us a number of knowledge words for his condition.
Once again, a five minute Holy Spirit encounter, caused a timeless impact in these lives.
The Holy Spirit then told me to stop and wait with the two girls on the sidewalk.
It was not long before a man whom I have ministered to on previous trips walked by me. I greeted and told him that I would be in town another 5 weeks.
Our twenty minutes were up and we returned back to the gazebo.
As we approached it, my friend Piero was finishing sharing Jesus with a man. I got a word for him.
I saw a pen with a flower stuck through the man’s left hand.
I felt that this weird picture meant that the guy was a writer but was not using his gift.
Indeed when I asked him, he was a writer of books and music, who according to his mother had been hiding his writing abilities in the sand.
Another five minute brilliant impact by Jesus.
What did you think of these twenty minutes with Jesus?
So much fun, and so easy.
The greatest news is that if I can do it, so can you.
This is an explanation of our upcoming trip, to New York, May 1- June 16th
How can you help the nation you love?
John 9:4b “Night is coming, when no one can work”
For America, revival is no longer the option; it’s the requirement, and her only hope. America has entered a night without a moral compass. The compass was lost, when she stopped valuing God. Now, no one can work to bring America out of the night, except God. The key is revival, where God sovereignly works.
In 2007, Mary and I had a prospering ministry In East Africa, named Safari through the Word.
We lived in Kenya and ministered throughout the nation hosting Bible conferences.
We visited Uganda and Tanzania, and were courting invitations to minister in other countries.
In the midst of this God spoke to us; “I need you more in America than in Africa.”
At the end of 2007 we relocated to Miami, Florida.
Since then, we have been assistant pastors at Doral Vineyard.
The religious decline of America commenced in the 60’s when prayer and the Bible were removed from public schools.
Directly proportional to America’s rejection of God has been the loss of its moral compass. Today, the USA is a ship agonizing on the waves of uncertainty, tossed to and fro by the whims of amorality and secularism.
The church has longed for revival for many years.
Today revival is no longer the option, it is the requirement, and America is ripe for it.
If the USA does not experience a spiritual awakening, I cannot imagine what she will become.
During trips to New York City to visit our daughter Lexy, God spoke about a coming revival to the Northeast.
We got connected with Pastors David and Sue Kim of Silver Springs Vineyard Church of Nyack, New York, forty-five minutes from Manhattan.
David and Sue have the same passion for revival in the northeast.
In March of this year we did four weeks of revival meetings at Silver Springs. Without advertisement except Face Book and word of mouth, they were filling up with folks not just from Nyack, but the Bronx, Brooklyn and New Jersey.
We saw a sovereign move of God.
During that trip we met with Pastor Greg Manalli, of Fellowship of Life Church, in Cheshire, Connecticut.
He has prayed for revival in the northeast for more than thirty years.
Pastor Greg showed us three paintings of a vision which he got in 1980’s,
In it the bellows of God blew revival winds into the New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts area with a great resultant harvest of souls.
The northeast is uniquely situated for a move of God which can touch millions at one time. There is no other region like it. Boston, Philadelphia, New York City, Baltimore, and Washington DC, are all along the 1 -95 corridor and just hours from each other. Breaking revival in one area will quickly spread through this corridor.
Next year in March, we will move to Nyack from Miami to continue with this work of revival, as God shifts things into high gear.
