Public opening of the Firehouse cafe.

Greetings fellow revolutionaries!

This Saturday, March 24th we're having a monthly FIRE meeting at the cafe in Rotterdam, beginning at 3pm. Then at 7pm, which is of as much importance, we're having a DVD showing of "They Sold Their Souls For Rock and Roll", documenting the demonic influence behind much of contemporary music of all genres.

We've invited a few youth we minister to at the cafe on the weekends and from the local highschool we are involved in. Please pray not for a large turnout specifically in numbers, but for fruitful interaction and results from having this night. Many young people we minister to our hungry for Christ, but struggling with decisions about the influence of appropriate music in their lives.

Then, on Saturday March 31st at 7pm we're having our PUBLIC opening. Media have been invited, and some of our friends will be present, and more importantly, we're believing for some of the community we've invited to come out and see the place. So far we've been "open" but mostly having birthday parties and prayer meetings. Pray that what we're here to do as an outreach to the community will be made clear.

And of course, general prayer about the work and evangelism and discipleship in the Netherlands is ALWAYS appreciated, but those are specific points for this week.

Bedankt and tot ziens!

world leaders

I am sitting here watching George Bush talk on tv about the war on Iraq. So I'm thinking to myself, who cares? Well, we should. My request is for ALL the world leaders. That God would guide them in their decisions, even if their decisions don't effect you directly, they do someone, and I can't imagine how difficult it would be knowing how huge each one of your decisions actually was. So lets pray for them, even if we don't like them.

Marissa battling cancer.

Hello, All!

Thank you so much for praying and rallying prayer for my dear friend, Marissa who is battling cancer.

We are still believing God for a miracle for her. After intense brain radiation treatment, the doctors have put her on aggressive chemotherapy. She is very sick from that but is hanging in there. It has been a rough couple of months but her mom and her as well as her relatives, church family and friends (and many people she doesn't even know) are trusting the Lord in this difficult time.

The cancer is not contained and the doctors are hoping, while it seems like a long shot at this point, to bring all of the cancer under remission through the chemo. That's the best case scenario and that is what they are hoping to do through these treatments. Marissa has stayed optomistic (of course there are rough days) and really believes the Lord will get her through this.

Marissa and I got to spend a lot of time together when I was there and I left really encouraged by her and her mom's faith in the Lord. They are surrounded by wonderful people who are helping in so many ways. I thank God for the grace He's given, yet we're still praying for complete healing in her body.

Please pass this on! The situation is very serious. At one point, when I was up there, Marissa said that she was so tired and worn out and she felt like she couldn't "fight" this alone. I reassured her that so many people all over the world are praying. She has so many friends and people that are standing with her at this time.

With much love,
Rachel Schneier

Psalm 125:1-2 "Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds His people both now and forevermore."

"At least 20 people were killed when storms struck the southern United States yesterday. Eighteen people died when a tornado hit the small town of Enterprise in southern Alabama on Thursday afternoon, destroying the central section of the local high school where at least 15 died." (more)

Received this email this morning (March 2, 2007):

Cathy, I am requesting prayer for my hometown Enterprise, Alabama that was hit yesterday by a tornado. We still have a house there and the neighbor said she thought the back glass window (it is huge) was cracked or broken (couldn't tell from the darkness). Also one of our trees fell in her yard and did damage to her place.

John is going tomorrow to check it out. I am very troubled over it all.....For years I prayer walked over the very area that was hit the worst ( 2 blocks from our house ) and today I looked up at the clock in my bedroom and it was 11:11 AM!!! I said "Lord, what are you saying to me?" He said "Judgement is upon us!" and I know I should have fallen to my knees and prayed but didn't....I told you about all the 11's we have been seeing.....saw it alot lately and then again today and the tornado hit at 12:45PM(CST)

Share with your praying friends please...not sure how many were killed...they are saying 8.
Many believers in that area and the Lord has been moving in their lives so........Ft. Rucker is only 6 miles is the helicopter training Army base in the US. So alot of military live there....

Thank you!

May the LORD have mercy on the folks in Enterprise I pray in Jesus name!

Truly a tragedy, Donna, and I pray for open doors to share the Gospel for the believers there and for both you and John in all this.

In my blog, I have a link to the man who had a vision of hell - quite powerful. The LORD told him to tell us that Jesus was coming very, very soon and He doesn't want people to go to hell which was made for the devil and his demons.

This morning, the LORD reminded me that the fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom - not to fear man but rather God.

Yes, I too believe time is short.

May we "be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear." (1 Peter 3:15)

I pray that the LORD Jesus Christ be glorified and may many souls be saved!

blessings & love to you both Donna,
