"I tell you the truth," Jesus said to them, "no one who has left home or wife or brothers or parents or children for the sake of the kingdom of God will fail to receive many times as much in this age and, in the age to come, eternal life." (Lk 18:29-30)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

God has used this verse to comfort me recently as symptoms of culture shock/homesickness came up, missing my church and friends in Vienna so much. And then He'd speak this truth into my heart again, revealing again that my being here was not about me but about His kingdom and His purpose for this vessel. Getting the right perspective again has left me in awe and excitement and humbled me, that I'd have the honor to be here in this place, part of World Revival Church (WRC)(www.worldrevivalchurch.org).

This last weekend we've had a powerful conference at the church, with dozens of pastors from all over the US, Singapore, the Philippines and Australia. God has raised up WRC and its senior pastors Steve & Kathy Gray to be pastors to pastors, to have an impact upon the whole world. Many of those pastors and leaders are also part of the World Revival Network (www.worldrevivalnetwork.com), sharing resources, strengthening each other and being a family to each other, all having the same vision to see God's kingdom and glory come all over the earth.

Today the Filipino group shared how God has brought revival to the Philippines, starting after a pastor had been here and then showed the video on the revival in his church. Now the whole south of the Philippines has been touched and transformed, and that through the catholic church! Those believers have been invited to hold weekly prayer meetings at the president's palace and the president is even joining them for some time every week! PRAISE GOD!

This weekend we've been praising God and His glory has descended on us. It was awesome as the sense of something new starting overwhelmed many. We had great teaching, very diverse, from different pastors. I personally come to love pastors Steve & Kathy more and more. Seldom have I seen a man of God like Steve who is so humble, so meek, so open, frank and honest, so loving and yet confrontational, who loves God and His people which becomes visible practically. I love listening to his teaching and looking forward to having him as a teacher in the school, teaching "Theology of Revival". Also, this weekend he received an honorary doctorate degree from a Bible College.

Besides what described in the first paragraph, the Lord did another major thing in my life the result of which will become more visible in the future. I've been amazed, since coming here, at the financial dedication of people here (96 ithe, most of them give more than a tenth) and the resulting financial miracles. Honestly, they have been mindblowing and challenging! It's their 'realness' that really gets at you. No forced prosperity gospel teaching, but a simple trust in God as the provider and in the principle of sowing and reaping. Having seen God's miraculous provision myself numerous times, I realized I still had far to go. I was longing for this level of revelation and had been studying the topic, listening to tapes.
Yesterday, the pastors and others were praying for financial breakthroughs in people's lives. I went forward and God touched me powerfully. All the head-knowledge seemed to become a reality, I felt a revelation coming, and that God was taking me from the 'land of not enough' to the land of 'more than enough'. Hallelujah!

I'm so thankful for these fresh and personal revelations from God. I know that many in the kingdom still need those and for that reason, I'd really like to share the way God's working in this area in my life, to encourage you and increase your faith.

At the beginning of last week I spent a few days not doing anything but translating, to get the month of February for the online devotional done, in time for payday for the school. Praise God, He enabled me to work efficiently. When I turned in the February copy, I was told I'd also be paid for the January translation, which I had done 8 months ago for free. Praise God!
While I was translating on Tuesday, someone messaged me with yahoo! messenger, which is happening all the time (I'm always online). Sometimes I don't reply, sometimes I do, depending on the circumstances. This guy asked right away whether I could translate something for him. I thought, ok, another student with German homework. It turns out he's owning a company in Germany and is looking for a translator to translate his webpage. Outcome: I got the job and will be paid 230 US$ (3.500 ATS) which will help my Austrian account. Isn't God awesome?
The whole weekend I've felt I wanted to give 100$ to a student who hadn't got the tuition together yet, to sow into the harvest I needed myself. On Saturday, even before I had given the money that night, I received a check over 100$! Awesome God!

These are just a few things from last week. I'm confident I'll have more to share in the future, especially next week as I'm still 400$ short for the tuition.

I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent. (Lk 15:7)

Last week I joined the group of e-vangelists again that I'm part of. Having left the chatroom already, one guy messaged me and we started talking. At first it seemed like one of those conversations that are a waste of time. But then it turned out that he was part of the Greek Orthodox Church and wanted to know Jesus personally. So we prayed a prayer of commitment together. Praise God! Dimitrios is online a lot and, thank God, I could bring him together with pastors in his city of Athens. Please pray for his protection and growth that he'll become a true disciple of Christ!

VIENNA

One of the things I've felt God saying recently is to give up my apartment in Vienna. Please pray for wisdom and God's intervention as I'm trying to sort everything out from here! The situation is rather complicated.

NEXT WEEK

I'm taking two classes in addition to the full-time School of Ministry. One is a guitar class at 'Grace Training Center', as I long to move on in music and worship. The other is a class on the prophetic at Mike Bickle's 'Forerunner School of Prayer', taught by Jill Austin. Those two start this week. The School of Ministry starts a week later.

Also, I'm having a good friend (who's American but I met her when she studied in Vienna) coming to stay with me here indefinitely, to take some time off seeking God. I'm looking forward to having her here.

May God bless you abundantly as you place Him FIRST in your life!

All HIS,

Claudia
