God is able to do impossible things so we should be bold and ask him for great things. We should be careful to protect our dreams. If the enemy can not kill you, he will do his best to kill your dreams. Guard your dreams, and do not be afraid to trust God to bring your dreams into reality!
In less then 24 hours I am escorting Nicole to the USA...and she will live out a dream she had 2 years ago. I'm so honored and blessed to be moving into this adventure. God gives me peace that He is going to prepare the ground before us. I have dreams too. I have not shared all my dreams with you but I trust God with all my hopes and expectations. I'm not really sure I'll be able to blog until I get to Oregon next Sunday (July 27Th). If I can blog I will. I hope my friends will remember to pray for us. Please remember to pray for Juergen and the kids too. I hope to report what God has done...and tell you my dreams have come true!
The photo is of Jessica at Disneyland Paris. I hope to meet my good friends Donna and Cindy at Disneyland on Tuesday. I'm sure most of you understand I'm praying for Jessica to get healed from autism. I am going to see Bonnke on July 26TH and Todd Bentley on July 26Th. Both have been blessed with the spiritual gift of healing. My dream is to see Jessica healed. I will not write more because I need to protect my dreams. I give all my hopes to God. I ask you to please pray for my trip.

My sister loves this ice cream. Nicole and I toasted our trip with a bite. To be honest, I gave the ice cream to Sarah & Nicole gave hers to Philip. I bought the milk chocolate type and I'm strictly a dark chocolate girl! Shelley this magnum is for you!!!

Last night two of the Elders from our church came to our house to pray for Jessica. It was wonderful! They also prayed for my trip. Jess slept well last night. She has had a wonderful week at school. Two times this week she kissed the bus driver. Normally she hits and scratches because she really does not want to go to school. This week was different. I believe God is healing her. It is a process...but we are on the way! I am listening to John Arnot (Toronto Airport Church). He just preached that we should not doubt that healing is God's will. Jesus healed everyone who came to him. Jesus only did the will of God. Healing is nothing we need to work for. It is nothing we need to deserve. Healing is a gift from God from Jesus who loves us. We only need to ask God to forgive us if we have any unforgiveness standing in the way. Then just ask.

I made the kids baked chicken with rice and vegetables. The kids only wanted to eat the chicken. I said "no snacks until you eat your vegetables". I just know the only vegetables they will see when I'm gone are mushrooms on the top of frozen pizza and maybe lettuce on a hamburger. I am not going to think about it. I'm going to get on that airplane next Monday and trust Juergen to keep them alive until I return.
God, give us grace to accept the things that cannot be changed, courage to change the things that should be changed, and the wisdom to know the difference.
When Juergen gets to sleep in I shut the bedroom door and basically threaten the kids with death if they dare to bother him. "Papa is sleeping, and he needs his sleep"!!!It was my morning to sleep in so what does Juergen do? "Amy, does Philip have sports today"? I hear Juergen scream up the stairs. Next thing I know, there is Sarah standing next to my bed. "Where is my paper"? I tell her it's by the sofa in the living room. Because I don't spring up to get it she screams and starts hitting the door. Then I hear Juergen ask Sarah "what's wrong? Mama is upstairs". Sarah shouts, "I don't want Mama anymore". Next thing I remember is Juergen shouting, "Amy I have to go". Oh, it's so nice to sleep in. That extra hour makes all the difference!

1 Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits-
3 who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
6 The LORD works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.
7 He made known his ways to Moses, his deeds to the people of Israel:
8 The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.
9 He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever;
10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
13 As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;
14 for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.
15 As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field;
16 the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.
17 But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children's children-
18 with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts.
19 The LORD has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all.
20 Praise the LORD, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word.
21 Praise the LORD, all his heavenly hosts, you his servants who do his will.
22 Praise the LORD, all his works everywhere in his dominion. Praise the LORD, O my soul.

I was thinking of the Spiritual heritage God has blessed me with. Once when I was a young person Mark Buntain spoke in my church. He was unlike any person I had ever seen. He was really intense! He was so in love with Jesus and passionate about his work. What was his work? He feed about 800,000 hungry people every single day in

I love Bill Johnson's book "When Heaven Invades Earth", and I just bought his book "The Supernatural Power of a Transformed Mind". I just love this mans grace and wisdom! I'm looking forward to seeing Todd B in LA on July 26Th.

"As you go, make this proclamation: 'The kingdom of heaven is at hand.'
Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, drive out demons."
These are the works of the kingdom of heaven...
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your Kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven
God let your kingdom come!!! God I want your kingdom in Jessica's life! God I want your kingdom!!! God I want your kingdom!!!

Hark! how the heav’nly anthem drowns
All music but it’s own!Awake, my soul, and sing
Of him who died for thee,And hail him as thy matchless king
Thru all eternity.
I was sitting at my desk looking at my pen. My pen has a few charms handing from it. A heart and a crown. It made me think of this old song. It has many verses...
Crown Him the Son of God, before the worlds began,And ye who tread where He hath trod, crown Him the Son of Man Who every grief hath known that wrings the human breast,And takes and bears them for His own, that all in Him may rest.
Crown Him the Lord of life, who triumphed over the grave,And rose victorious in the strife for those He came to save.His glories now we sing, Who died, and rose on high,Who died eternal life to bring, and lives that death may die.
