TIME FOR THE BOOK
For years I
have carried this book in me, allowing all the chapters to form
and come to maturity, and now it's time to deliver the baby. In
March I started feeling this urgency to start writing, and I asked
the Lord for a confirmation, as I returned to Mali from Europe.
On the way home I was prophesied over and the first thing the man
of God said was about writing a book.What a timely confirmation!
Being in the
US, I was again feeling the urgency, and asking the Lord to make
a way where there is no way in the natural (i.e. no time). I feel
like I need to get away for a week or two, with the only goal of
writing, without any distractions. So I'm asking the Lord where
He would have me go to write. I'm thinking of October right now.
Some might ask
what the book is about. It's gonna be my story - how God can take
a broken girl from a secular family and send her all alone to a
Muslim nation to take it for Him. It is going to be the journey
of how it all came about, and it's meant to encourage all the sons
and daughters of God that nothing is impossible with God, and He
can do anything with each one of you, so just step into your destiny!
for a place to write are welcome. It will be sacrificial to take
time out to write, but it will be worth it.
A HERO - MATCHING YOUR DONATIONS
said that 2006 would be the year when things come full-circle, and
it surely looks that way with my divine appointment with Wesley
Campbell in California.
years ago I did a three-month school of counseling & healing
in Kelowna, Canada, under the then-senior pastor Wesley Campbell.
It was probably the most significant time of preparation for Mali,
because the Lord did such an immense work of healing in me. I've
never been back to Kelowna, and still, when I talked to Wesley the
other day, he knew he had met me before.
has a multi-million dollar organization (charity) called BE
A HERO with the goal of saving one million children at risk
world-wide, and he wants to take on our building project, helping
us with the funding.
What do they
do? They match every donation coming in, i.e. if you give $1000
to them, earmarked for my project, they will give me $2000. How
does it work? Wesley is a world reknown conference speaker whose
heart is to mobilize every revivalist to start reaching out to the
poor and the orphans, and to have every American family sponsor
one child. The revivalists associated with BE A HERO raise the funds
in their conferences, to fund the projects in the third world. Wes
immediately knew who to ask to take my project on the road, and
everything is in process now.
for the details to be worked out for the glory of God. Pray for
continued favor. Pray also for the property papers
to come through; they are still stuck on the government level, and
without them, we cannot start construction. Pray for the funds
to come in, so BE A HERO can have something to match. Wes's rough
estimate of how much our building project will cost was half a million
dollars. Our construction manager in Mali now has to give me an
informed estimate of how much our first building phase will cost.

2 THE NATIONS GOING OFFICIAL
The Lord has
been speaking to me that it's time for HEALING 2 THE NATIONS to
become an official organization in the US, a 501c3, a tax-exempt
I'm now looking
for someone who knows how to do the paperwork, and who can help
me do that. I'm also praying about who to invite to be on the board.
And I'm looking for someone who will do the administrative work
in the US on an ongoing basis.
The need for
this step forward was confirmed when someone approached me, wanting
to be under my covering, going with HEALING 2 THE NATIONS into another
nation a year from now. At the same time the Lord confirmed through
a prophet that He was now opening other nations, and that I was
a "mother of nations". Wow!
Any help or
advice is welcome.
MALI FOR HIM
These last few
days I attended the yearly HIM conference in Pasadena (Los Angeles).
I was amazed, blown away, as the Lord downloaded strategies, blueprints,
marching orders to me, for what's ahead in Mali. Last December the
Lord told me to start praying for the eight regions of Mali, and
determine where in each region to plant a church. I thought it was
so ridiculous since we had only just celebrated our first anniversary
as a church in Bamako! However, the Lord spoke to me in January
and told me it would be sooner than I thought.
Now the Lord
is speaking in greater detail about planting churches in other parts
of Mali. He showed me arrows going from Bamako to all the other
parts of Mali, and gave me some details on how to proceed.
Yet, my heart
A year ago,
returning to Mali just after the HIM conference as I'm doing right
now, I cried to the Lord, asking HOW I could feed the kids on a
weekly basis. But He did it.
This year, I'm
crying HOW again. HOW to go plant churches all over Mali without
any workers? Remember, God, Your fire came and reduced our church,
and I only have one team member left! HOW, oh Lord, do all these
things, without radical lovers of God who will lay down their lives
and go? And I'm not even talking about money...
But you know
what? I know that God is able. When He calls, He provides. If it's
time to go start churches in other parts of Mali, He will send the
workers and the finances. Wow! He will do it!
Maybe He has
already talked to some of you reading this email, and you're supposed
to come help me bring in the harvest in Mali. Together, let us raise
up the Malian army, the Malian bride, made up of adults but also
of kids. I can't wait for my kids to go and do the works Jesus did!
Let's go get the kids, have them radically saved and transformed,
and send them back out with the weapons of our God!
trip to Mali are in the earliest stages of preparation. Do
you want to join a team, and start a new church in Mali?

TO GO HOME
In a few hours
I'm boarding the plane to Paris, from where I continue on to Bamako,
Mali. I'm excited to go home, excited to move forward with fresh
vision and new anointing.
your feedback and comments are always welcome! I love getting emails!
For HIS GLORY,
