June Newsletter 2013
recently spoke to our church after returning from a 6 month
mission trip in South Africa. She went through some awesome
pre-mission training and had months of setting in the
presence of God to prepare for this journey. She had a Holy
Spirit glow and challenged us with Paul’s desire to KNOWN Jesus
Christ and the power of His resurrected life, and to know
His heart for the lost world. The Boyer family and praise
team provided the worship and had all of our kids worshiping
the Lord. It was a great challenge and exciting for us to
see so many young adults sold out for Jesus. Don’t believe
what the media tells you, God does have an army in this
world and He is conquering! Anna's message can be heard

Elijah Jones is a very special young man with a big heart
after God. Recently, while on a walk talking with the Lord,
God spoke to my heart about Elijah, He impressed upon me
that He wanted to speak a blessing into Elijah and anoint
him because the spirit of his name, Elijah, which was the
forerunner of Jesus, was upon him to be the forerunner in
his generation. We so desperately need to be speaking truth
& life into our youth today. We have an entire generation
coming up that do not know right from wrong, evil from good,
and the main stream media are calling evil good, and good
evil. Our youth are being saturated with lies. We have taken
great steps at Recovery Church in developing exciting ways
to bring our children & youth into LIVING relationships with
Jesus and we take every opportunity to allow Jesus to show
Himself alive in their lives. The youth want to see a God
that’s ALIVE…interacting in their lives personally.
Malinda Lara & Amanda Thomas
Congratulations to Malinda Lara who recently graduated the 2
year drug court program. We were glad to be a part of her
journey into a new and exciting life. Pictured with Malinda
is Amanda Thomas, who will graduate next month. We are very
proud of both young ladies. We have witnessed both girls
learn some hard lessons, but they were lessons that will not
be soon forgotten. Life is good if you humble yourself and
follow God’s ways. Both of these ladies have learned some
hard lessons and we are excited about their future. Amanda
will be opening a business in O.K.C soon; Malinda has a new
addition to her family, (TRIP), and will pursue getting her
nursing career back! Thanks to Sharon Cain and the local
drug court program for all the hard work. Great job!
Revival in Jails
We baptized six ladies
this month in the jails. Debbie, Frankie, and the other
chaplains have a great revival going on in the ladies
side. We have baptized over 50 ladies this year and they
are so hungry for the truth and the freedom that comes
with learning who we are in Christ. They are growing
spiritually and digging into God's word to learn who
they are and how God can satisfy their deepest needs.
The are working hard on using this time to develop an
intimate relationship with Jesus. We expect great things
this year with the ladies. Big thanks to Sheriff
McKinney, Sharon, Dave Horn, Jim McNair and entire staff
for allowing this great work of the Lord to continue.
It was my honor to baptize Kenneth Ashley this month.
Kenneth has just amazed us spiritually. He is so hungry to
learn and grow in the Lord. We are very excited about
Kenneth’s future in this ministry. He spent most of his life
in alcohol and bitterness over a past he couldn't change,
then he got serious about Jesus and his life is so full of
hope and purpose and excitement. He will never be the same
again, he is a new man and walks with a smile all the time.
The joy of the Lord is his strength!
Our closing story is of Robert Wilkins and his family. They
were the first to live in our 1st
and it’s amazing to see the change in all 3 of their lives
over the past year. Recently Robert re-dedicated his life
to the Lord, and has purposed to be the spiritual leader of
his home. Wife Billie, and daughter Nellie, were baptized
the same day. Space does not allow sharing their incredible
journey this month. But it’s another successful story of
what God can do with a life and family that seemed doomed.
We sincerely thank and appreciate so much everyone of you
who supports this work in so many different ways. Also a
special thanks to our church family for taking the challenge
of growing and maturating in the Lord that His image might
shine through us. Our brothers and sisters in jail and
prison remember, and know, that you are a New Creation in
Christ Jesus, the old is DEAD, the new is ALIVE. Blessings!
