at NATO Headquarters in Belgium
Nineteen member nations are a part of the NATO alliance, headquartered
in Brussels, Belgium
In mid-March we arrived at Brussels, Belgium where I had the incredible
privilege of being the speaker at the NATO Prayer Breakfast. Its
hard to describe what I felt after going through multiple security
checks at NATO Headquarters to join a gathering of leaders from
the 19 member nations of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
After being introduced, I spoke clearly and candidly about the need
for Christand the true freedom and security that knowing Jesus
brings. Im excited to report to you that Father moved in a
very real way. I could see in the faces of these leaders from different
countries clear indications that the Holy Spirit was speaking directly
to their hearts. I had the opportunity to pray (privately as well
as corporately) for these men and womenambassadors, military
liaisons and planners, members of the diplomatic corpsand
see Father touch them deeply. As a result of what the Holy Spirit
was doing, I also met individually with several leaders for private
counseling and personal ministry.
Marilyn also spoke at NATO to a gathering of NATO wives. I wish
you could have seen her as she shared her heart with them, encouraging
them in their faith. We also had an opportunity to conduct a morning-long
marriage mini-retreat at the NATO chapel on Saturday.
Father continued to move when I spoke during the Sunday morning
NATO chapel service. I concluded the message with an invitation
for believers to pursue the power of the Holy Spirit in their lives.
Nearly 40 per cent of the congregation responded for prayer for
the infilling of the Holy Spirit. Our ministry in Brussels concluded
with a time of prayer, sharing, and personal ministry at a small
group gathering in the home of one of the NATO diplomats.
