I want to share a couple of other things which were pretty cool.
My friend, Mark Sanchez came down to the school along with my brother Lee and they were wonderful - edifying, and a real blessing. They are a great prophetic team. I am looking forward to ministering with them again in the future.
Another of my life events started when I felt I was supposed to go to a conference with my pastor. A year later I received a phone call from a guy that I have never met face-to-face, but we have talked to on the phone. His name is Bill Miracle. He called me about a month or so ago, and said: "One of us is going to California." We talked for a little bit and I received the word.
A few weeks later, I was asked by my pastor to attend a conference in California. I committed to go without having the funds to get there. My friends had been praying for a plane ticket. Not long after I received a word from a woman that I also have not met face-to-face; she lives in Vancouver. Here is her Facebook message to me on September 22:
"David, I was praying for you this afternoon, and I felt God say that the money for your ticket was going to come from your church, an honorarium, for teaching the course, perhaps?
I could have heard wrong (it's happened lots before), but I'm practicing hearing God and I have faith for you. Let me know how God provides."
At the end of the school, my pastor decided to do an offering. It was unusual because I attend the church and do classes for them all the time. In all the classes I have done we have never had an offering - well until this one. It was enough to fund my trip and also my wife as well.
I'll let you know how things go in California!
