First, I just have to say we truly deeply miss our Discovery family. We have never doubted our calling to be a part of the Discovery community but being away has solidified this actual desire to be with you all and love you all and be loved by you all. We yearn for it! The Holy Spirit is at work in Discovery Church and deserts will bloom in the light of the Father’s love!
Things are going great at SROM. This month I instructed two Adult 10 day courses. Both were amazing and the Lord did amazing things and showed up in a real tangible way. The 19 year old college female now believes in her core that she is a daughter of the King and made perfectly in His image, and He is BEAUTY! There is no need to go anywhere else for her self-image. We saw physical healing. We saw spiritual transformation. We saw the Heavenly Father ferociously tugging at the heart of an atheist homosexual who the month prior to the course tried to end his life. He was a direct witness to an UNDENIABLE living God who heals and shows up when called on. He learned that in Jesus Christ there is redemption. He left with hope. The 21 year old male who had been tangled up by the lies of lucifer and was using cocaine and abusing alcohol the week before the course rededicated his life to Jesus and is staying in Laramie, WY to remain in this community that loves him and walks beside him towards Christ. I saw a community come together to resist spiritual attack in the name of Jesus under a tarp in the cold alpine rain. And the devil fled.
The Lord worked in me personally on these courses as well. He taught me that being in this place out on these courses in a position of pure obedience is ok. Its ok if I don’t always WANT to be there. I shouldn’t be there because I WANT to be there. I’m there out of complete obedience and sometimes it really feels that way. And that’s ok. I’m tired. Physically, spiritually, mentally, emotionally. And that’s ok. Sometimes at night I lay down and I’d much rather not be there. That’s ok. It’s out of obedience.
Jess and I both received confirmation this summer on the calling on our marriage. To minister to and come along side other young couples or young single people desiring a Kingdom marriage.
The Lord continues to work through Jess in her time with groups while she photographs them. The Lord is not bound to the constraints of time and continues to allow Jess to pour weeks worth of life into students in the matter of a day. The way she earnestly strives for perfection as a Kingdom wife inspires young women. Jess also had a divine appointment with a student that had to be removed from one of my courses for physical reasons. The student was a 63 year old woman who has been in marriage ministry with her husband for 30 years. She spent 5 days with Jess pouring into her and helping to equip her while I was in the field receiving confirmation on the calling on our marriage. God is so good!!!!!
I apologize for the lack of conciseness in this letter. We have just literally felt the prayers of Discovery Church and we would not be able to do this without your support. We love you all. We are praying for Discovery daily.
In the name of the great I AM,
Keith & Jess
