Encouraging Words 11/10/09-BCF Praise Report

"Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; Listen carefully to what I say, The men are not drunk, as you suppose. It's only nine in the morning! No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: 'In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on ALL people! Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out My Spirit in those days, and THEY WILL PROPHESY!" Acts 2:14-18

Greetings BCF Family & Friends!

Incredible, WONDROUS, many more adjectives can I use to adequately describe how God showed up and showed OUT at our Fall Outpouring! And let me tell you we had an OUTPOURING!!! Every sermon, every workshop, every prophetic utterance given in worship services built one upon another to a powerful release from Heaven on Sunday!! I can't tell you when was the last time that our worship service ran 4 hours! And it was the most exciting four hours you can possibly imagine! There was a Divine release given into the earth- and we are ALL going forth in a brand new anointing to fulfill God's Call on our lives- to tell everyone that Jesus is the Lord and that He loves them! It's Harvest time!

The sound in worship was so incredible! 90+ voices singing from their hearts to the Lord is one of the most beautiful and sweet sounds imaginable! EVERYONE got what they came for and more- answers to questions, a renewed passion for service and an unquenchable desire for MORE of God! Only GOD can quench our desire- because He IS our Desire!!! Amen?!!

We THANK EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU for your prayers, your love, and to all who attended, both in person and online, we praise God for you and our relationships with each of you. We are HONORED to stand in service to the King with you!

We especially want to thank our speakers and ministers. With this said, I'd like to recognize and acknowledge Rev. Evelyn and Dennis Schave, who are celebrating their 20th year of ministry in the GLBTS communities!!! Erica Sargent wrote them a beautiful anacronym for the words "Bridge Builders" because that is a big part of what they've been doing. They have loved us to wholeness and have supported us even though they themselves were rejected for doing so! Also the ministry of Pastor Debbie George in music and the prophetic, Apostle Susan George, Apostle Dylan Crozier and Brother Vinnie Crozier, Pastor David Thomas, Apostle Jack McConnell, and Apostle Randy Morgan.....MY LORD, WHAT ANOINTINGS God has birthed in the GLBTS Christian Movement!!! We were honored and blessed by each and every one of them- and we THANK GOD for them!! And Kate Singh has taken a ton of wonderful pictures of which we will be posting and sharing with you all in the weeks ahead!!!! Janice Lacount wowed us all in the Holy Ghost with her incredible talents, Brother Jason DeShazo stepped to the plate on percussion...Pastor JuaNita released the anointing through the flags and banners ministry, and the dance ministry of Covenant of the Cross was inspiring to us all! God bless you and THANK YOU ALL for your contributions to the weekend!!!

Last of all and most importantly, I want to express gratitude to the flock I under-shepherd, my BCF covenant family: THANK YOU, YOU GUYS!! You really came through and the Lord Jesus was glorified through each and every one of you!! Thank you for your serving- cooking, cleaning, singing, praying, building, and LOVING one another so demonstratively- I feel so honored and greatly priviledged to be your Apostle. I am confident that you NOW have caught the vision of what God has shown us He is going to do through OUR lives together! Let's continue to be faithful, be consistent, and recognize that each of you have a vital part to play in what God is doing in the earth through our church and ministry!!! I love each of you VERY much. Brenda, Anita, Josh, Ryan, Troy, Pastor Deborah, Ferris, Jim C., Melissa & Lauren, Terry, Marilyn, Sharone & Erica, praise team, FREDDY G. WHITE and my GARREY- you worked so hard and so well together! God has knit our hearts and our lives together in His love and even greater things are ahead for us all!

That's all for today. Have a wonderful week- we will! And know that you are loved and NOT alone in your faith walk! God is with you, and we are right here for you, too!

In Christ's faithful love and SHALOM,
Ap Dale
