I recognize your dedication to the fulfillment of your call to serve the Lord Jesus Christ and His Church through extensive ministry travels to forty nations, the books you have written and the lives you have impacted.  I too have spent time with the ministry; in fact, I credit a church mission trip to Haiti, over twenty-five years ago, with leading me to public service.

You have a powerful, faithful and focused ministry and I find your hard work and dedication to community most admirable. The citizens of Tennessee and I are grateful for your public service.

Bob Corker
United States Senator

There is more that God has placed within you in your capacity to contain, not just the heart of a people, rather, the heart of a nation. The waterways of the earth will be crossed again and again and God will give you nations as your inheritance. Your work will be greater abroad than it is even in this nation and the hand of Almighty God will touch even the country of your genesis in a new way in the next number of years for there is going to come a radical shaking and awakening and I have positioned you strategically as an influencer of influencers.   You are in a brand new day. You are in a brand new season. And you are in a brand new dimension. Apostle of God: do the work of an apostle in that nation.”[/no_image_with_text_and_icon]
