This past week has been very interesting and exciting! The men met at McDonalds for our weekly McPrayer and one of our guys came overflowing with revelation concerning the spiritual significance of the temple as described in Hebrews 9. We were greatly encouraged by the insight God was giving us through him. During our prayer time one of us began to prophesy over another guy, who was consequently greatly encouraged.
"But everyone who prophecies speaks to men for their strengthening, encouragement and comfort." 1 Cor. 14:3
Our prayer meeting last Tuesday was awesome. Even though we couldn't go into the room where we would normally pray, the Lord blessed our time together as we met in front of the building and prayed and worshipped! We believe it's God's call for us to begin moving out into the streets more and more.
The ladies met on Wednesday for their weekly meeting at Starbucks and Impact met again for their weekly meeting. They had a great time and are being taught to prophesy and to exercise this powerful gift on one another, to equip them to be used wherever the Lord wants to speak into the lives of those they encounter at school or in the street etc. (1 Cor. 14:24,25)!
Over the weekend we were blessed with meeting Munday, Jennifer and Samuel Martin for the first time. The Lord had prompted Munday to contact us from the United States and so we got together as they spent the weekend in Frankfurt on their way back to the U.S. on their return trip from Israel and invited them to visit our meeting on Sunday. The Lord encouraged KLF with a powerful prophecy that was given to Munday for us as well as through the message/teaching Munday brought, confirming God's will for us to be on the streets, using the gifts of the Holy Spirit to reveal God's heart to the people. We concluded the meeting with Munday ministering to us with prophetic words and prayer and we were delighted to have one of our members sing in the Spirit over us as the Lord touched the lives of our people in a very special way. Munday is clearly anointed to do prophetic evangelism and we are planning a week together later on this year to team up with Jennifer and him to reach people on the streets of Frankfurt with God's love and power.

This past week has clearly been a week of prophecy and the Lord releasing our people in this powerful gift that builds up the church and convicts the unbeliever as God speaks through His people to reveal His heart to those whom He longs to encourage and touch. Many of us are being released in this gift and so we are planning some training sessions on the prophetic to teach, train, equip and release our people to encourage one another and to reach the lost with the gift of prophecy. We praise God for blessing us so richly with the gifts of the Spirit and the people to equip us!
The Lord is fulfilling the vision that has been given to Kingdom Life to raise up a people after His own heart who reach the lost and make disciples with the presence, power and love of God as they risk for His glory! Thank you Lord for your faithfulness!

"It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists,
and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God's people for works of service.." Ephesians 4:11, emphasis mine
