Ministry Update: January-February 2017

Preaching and ministering in Colorado.

Preaching and ministering in Sweden.

We recently returned from ministering in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Some friends of ours had been pastoring a church for a couple of years out there and wanted us to come out and minister when we could. We’d kept it in prayer over the last two years and then right as the new year began we discerned the Lord leading us to make arrangements to go out and minister there. 

Everything fell together, so next thing we knew we were driving through deserts, mountains, and some unexpected storms on our way there. We arrived and spent some time catching up with our friends and then as we ministered we experienced a tremendous outpouring of the Holy Spirit. 

They had been teaching on the need to be filled with the Holy Spirit for the past few months and said afterward that we had come in the “perfect timing.” Wow, only the Lord could arrange things that way as we hadn't discussed with them what we would minister on, nor had they told us they had been teaching on that subject; it was all the Holy Spirit’s timing, praise the Lord.

On our return from Colorado, we made it home just in time through some storms to see the Lord continue to move powerfully as we ministered in Orange, California at Centro Cristiano Esperanza. 

We were blessed to see the Holy Spirit also touch lives as we ministered last year in different places: in the cities of Hässleholm, Gothenburg, and Gamleby in Sweden, as well as in Paris and Tours in France, and in London, England. The Spirit of God ministered the grace of Christ as we also preached in Victoria and Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada, as well as in Medford, Oregon and in Northern and Southern California and down in the US/Mexico border region.

Thank you so much for your prayers and support! They are a great help as we extend the Kingdom of Christ and His mercy, grace, and power, to others near and far!

Much love and blessings!

Bryan, Mercedes and Patrick Marleaux
