As Hobby and his apostolic partner, Robbie James, began praying the 10:2b Prayer (see yesterday’s post) the Lord of the Harvest began arranging divine encounters. In the video below you will hear about one of those encounters with Mike Deaton, a professor at James Madison University in Virginia, and his wife JoEtta. (More from JoEtta tomorrow.)
Notice that Mike and JoEtta were already committed to planting house churches. But, two years of very limited success had made them hungry to learn. We have found this to be true for people who are answers to the 10:2b Prayer. In every situation, God has worked in their lives to prepare them. They have been “thrust out” by the Lord of the Harvest and are already motivated. You might say that “God does the heavy lifting” in preparing these church planters.
See what else you hear in Mike’s story.
