And They Celebrated Tabernacles

Every year we anticipate our celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles. We always want it to be special and fun for everyone, but especially for the children. The Feast of Tabernacles is a time of remembrance and teaching the next generations about the importance of knowing the Word of God. This week I have been…

The Meaning of the Celebration of Tabernacles

The period of the Feast of Tabernacles is very rich and deep in spiritual meaning for us. It is a statute that Moses received from the Lord in the wilderness. “Let them construct a sanctuary for Me, that I may dwell among them.” (Exodus 25:8, NAS) We understand that from the beginning it was God’s…

Feast of Tabernacles 2017

As part of our celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot), we camp together and have fun with our children, teaching and imparting to them the heart behind our experience in walking with the Lord and our faith for His presence to always be with us. It is always a very fun time when we…

How Do I Control My Spirit?

I believe it is so important for us to always be aware of our spirits and of how we are growing and moving in what God has given us. I often ask myself these questions: “How am I walking with God?” or “Am I applying God’s word in my life in a practical way?” I…

Biblical Feasts Celebration – Fall 2017

We are approaching the time of the Feast of Tabernacles. As Christians, we do not only celebrate it in remembrance of what God did in the past, but we also anticipate the fulfillment of what God is doing during the Feast of Tabernacles today. We believe that there are truths hidden in plain sight in…

Miracle Provision Through Relationships

We are being led to move through relationships. God allowed Elijah to live in isolation but then required him to find someone that would be his provision. There will be no growth and maturity without the body coming together with every joint supplying what they have received and opening up to receive from others also…

Being kind is powerful!

I believe kindness is a powerful aspect of love, especially when applied in our own homes. It is something that can cause immediate change to our day and it helps our love not to grow cold. When someone acts kindly to you, it triggers a chain-reaction; being kind bears much fruit. I suggest we all…

True Worshipers

“But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way.”  John 4:23 I love this scripture so much. Every time I read it I think of King David and how honest he was in…

Being Filled Up to All the Fullness

“and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God. ” (Ephesians 3:19, NAS) I have been living in this verse for a while now and there are two things that come to my mind: one is that the love of Christ surpasses…

Another School Year Begins

On August 7th we are resuming our After School Program for our school age children. The focus of the program is very simple: We love our children and want to create an atmosphere where they can learn and grow. That being our goal, we have gathered an amazing team of moms, aunties, and grandmas to…

Seeds Need To Be Planted

Seeds have an amazing ability to retain and preserve their quality and ability to reproduce and multiply. Seeds kept for years still retain the same untouched qualities they had generations past. I have heard of some 2,000-year-old seeds that germinated. They can not only reproduce the same DNA—the qualities of what they are—but they can…

How Does Our Love Grow?

We should have abundant life and be in a constant process of growing in our love for the Father and for each other. But then the question is: how can we do this? I think that the most important thing is to consistently connect back to our first love (Revelation 2:4). Think back to the…

Ten Years on Maui!

This July 15, 2017 marks exactly ten years my husband and then, five year old daughter, Julia Jael, left our families, careers, and possessions in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and moved to Maui, Hawaii. Earlier that year in March, we were praying and looking for the next steps in our lives. That is when our…

Young Adults School of Prophets – YASP 2017

For the last 27 years, under the direction of Gary and Marilyn Hargrave, we have been having what we call the Young Adult School of Prophets (YASP). It is a concentrated time with our young people where we get into the word and worship, and we also have fun. The program has changed along the…

Walk Free from Illusions

Is it better to be disillusioned or to live in illusions? We easily build illusions about God and what we think He should do for us and in the world around us. When we walk with God we have to be seeking Him and studying His word, and we must do it with the Holy…

Learning A New Culture

My family and I have lived on Maui, Hawaii, for nearly ten years now, and it has been an amazing experience. We are happy to announce we have recently taken the Citizenship test and oath to officially become American citizens, with all the rights and responsibilities that come with it. One thing that is really…

Pentecost – Be Changed by Receiving His Love

There were several times throughout Christ’s ministry where He received an impartation of God’s spirit and love. (Matt 3:16-17, Matt 17:5) These experiences equipped Him to do the will of His Father. The disciples were likewise equipped in order to fulfill the commission they received in Matt 28:19-20 to make disciples of the nations. In…

The Feast of Passover – 2017

As we approach the time of the Feast of Passover we are filled with anticipation to celebrate it as a family. The Feast of Passover is inexhaustible in its significance for us today because it represents the love and drive of God to see His people delivered from any obligation so they can come to worship…
