As I write this update, Christian Zebley is in India conducting the first Global Leadership Dynamics Team trip.  We will try to post updates here as things happen to keep you posted.

Prayer Request:

1. Continued strength and health – Christian feels good and his stomach is doing OK.  They have plenty of bottled water for him and good cooked Indian food.

2. God prepares Christian for the teaching and preaching of the GAT and Revival.  Sensing The Father wants to Revive and renew and break demonic strongholds and overall oppression through the Blood of Jesus applied through worship, preaching and prayer.

3. Others will give for the widows and orphans and the ministry project.

4. Protection for family back home.

Update – Day 2:

Christian and Pastor VJ decided to drive on Sunday night instead of waiting and leaving on Monday.  This will give them a day to rest before the 120 + pastors arrive for the GAT training on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Christian is staying in a new home the Pastor has built on his property that will become the home for the 30 street children and widows – about the size of a small one bedroom apartment.

The local church greeted Christian with 4 heavy flower garlands around his neck and then they had a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new house.  On the new house was a banner reading, The New Inaugurated Zebley Home for Children’s and Widows. Inside the house was a nice bed and new refrigerator.  They then proceeded to have a party to celebrate.

There is need to complete the children’s home, they need to put on two more doors and there are the expenses for the food and the cook ( $2000).  Also for the widows, the main need as the cold weather approaches in a few weeks are blankets (30 blankets = $300).

The Lord is renewing Christian and he is preparing to teach the GAT and preach in the revival.  He senses the Father wants to do some supernatural healings as well.

Pastor VJ says many of the people are nominal in their faith and practice some other traditions as well so Christian is sensing the need for God to awaken the people to a profound love and devotion to Jesus and call them into the abundant life of Word, Spirit, prayer, the power of Christ’ s blood and the surrendered life.   God is renewing Christian and showing him that He has him right where He wants Christian.    The economic situation is a place for God to show His power and His will as He draws people to Himself as they take care of the least of these.  This is the heart of GLD – proclamation, healing and social welfare all coming together in one move of transformation on a local community.

Christian says: “I have been reminded how much the social transformation piece plays such an important role in getting our hearts into the right position with God so we can receive His Word and His Power.  I am sensing that the breakthrough for all of our ministries is in the Isaiah 58 fast and the care of orphans and widows so to speak.  Praying we will see sacrificial giving for the needy here that will bring breakthrough for our hearts and ministries everywhere.”
