As we started out from Dallas, Texas
our theme was "Oklahoma, here we come!" Our hearts
were set on the days of revival ahead. Only God can
bring revival, but He can certainly use his servants
to pave the way and it is always our desire and
prayer that the Lord will work in and through us.
Pastor and Sister Bruce Ganze
welcomed us royally and, along with their sons Jared
and John, settled us into a lovely room that would
be our home throughout the revival days. We love and
appreciate this dedicated family and are always
thrilled to see their zeal for the Lord and His
We were anxious and ready for the
first service at Revivaltime Outreach Center and
happy to see folks coming through the doors. It was
great to see familiar faces of people who the Lord
touched in previous revivals here. What a blessing
it was to also see new faces and to hear of ongoing
church evangelism and growth.
God faithfully moved on hungry
hearts as they responded to the singing and
preaching of the word.
Prayer is sometimes answered in exciting and
Our great God prepares miracles for those
who pray and trust Him. This became evident
from the very start of revival.
We were on our way to the church to pray
not knowing that God was already answering.
The pastor arrived ahead of us and was in
prayer when two strangers unexpectedly
walked in seeking help. It wasn't long
before the Spirit of God reached down into
the hearts of Kathy and James bringing them
more help than they had dreamed of. Brother
Ganze prayed with them to surrender their
lives to the Lord and in that sacred,
God-planned moment Jesus came to live within
two new, born-again souls.
It was a thrill to see them grow
more in God each service. They came with
nothing, and God gave them so
much--providing a place to stay
---clothing--- food---jobs--- a new family
that they found at Revivaltime Outreach
Center--- and great spiritual riches that
transformed their lives! We rejoice to have
been a witness to God's precious work.
It was a
great joy to see the Lord draw responsive souls
closer to Him each night of the revival.
Some prayed earnestly at the altars
with tears and surrender, laying their troubled
burdens down at Jesus' feet, finding peace that
passes understanding in the presence of the Lord.
Some prayed through to overcoming victories in their
lives and were refilled with the Spirit after long
struggles. Although Satan may bring raging battles
into lives, Jesus is the Mighty Conqueror and will
break every fetter and set men free. Praise the
"THEY SHALL LAY HANDS ON THE SICK AND
THEY SHALL RECOVER"
Revival brings an awakening to our need
to call upon the Lord in faith for the
fullness of his promised Pentecostal
The sounds of Pentecostal
praying echoed through the church as God dug
deeply into lives, bringing changes and new
commitments from many.
CALL UNTO ME AND I WILL ANSWER THEE AND
SHEW THEE GREAT AND MIGHTY THINGS WHICH
THOU KNOWEST NOT.
Brother Goodwin preached with
anointing boldly proclaiming the messages God gave
him for each night. It was the anointing that broke
the yoke, and the Word of God that reached into
hearts bringing revival.
One night Sister Goodwin preached on
"No One Can Touch You Like Jesus Can" and God
brought a breakthrough to many lives.
We appreciated the great singing of
the Ganze family: Joseph, Amie, John and Jared. Joe
and Amie's family is a beautiful blessing.
Brother Wes Wilson brought extra life to the
services. We sure enjoyed having him present. It was
also great to have our good friends, the Lester
Mullis' in the revival.
Great reports are coming back to us that the
revival is continuing on at Bartlesville. More
people are praying through and dedicating themselves
to the Lord, faithfully coming to church, and even
showing up for door-to-door evangelism. The two new
converts have now been baptized in water and are
seeking to be filled with the Holy Ghost!
---TO GOD BE THE GLORY---
GREAT THINGS HE HATH DONE!
