IMPORTANT OUTREACH UPDATE
From the 2020 Heartland Organizers  |  AUGUST 19, 2020


On the change in direction of the 2020 Vision For The Heartland
 
_____
 

The Lord has done Great Things! We have seen a wonderful move of the Holy Spirit in events across 5 states this summer.  

And He is still doing Great Things! He continues to move in the hearts of pastors and people across the Midwest, and a fresh move of the Holy Spirit is at hand.


Sometimes, as we hear from the Lord and move in obedience to His call, we make plans, yet He turns us in a different direction as He directs our steps.  Let this be a testimony of trust and faith that, as He has begun by opening doors to Mike Mac and the team to do outreaches in the Heartland, He has led us to finish in a different way.

God’s Word tells us that He has a future and a hope for us all. Keep praying as we see the Lord adjust our schedules and move in Mighty Ways!

 

Jeremiah 29:12-13—Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.

 

As of this date, the Lord has prevented Mike MacIntosh and the Outreach Team from traveling for the remaining events, AND the Lord has continued to stir up the hearts of many pastors and churches who have decided to press-on to host their 2020 Vision for the Heartland events.

 

If shared with us, we will post these events on our Facebook page here.

The effective, fervent prayer
of a righteous man avails much
James 5:16

 From Mike’s Heart

 
Dear Heavenly Father:
 

“America is down. Wounded. Hurting. We have offended You as a people. We have sinned against You. Lord, we have sown to the wind a reckless pride, and now as a people we are reaping the whirlwind.

 

 

When our leaders lived and ruled by Your Holy Scripture, we prospered. We have abandoned our families, killed our unborn, gone the way of Sodom and Gomorrah. We have shaken our fist at You, cursed You, slapped You in the face, and spit upon You.

 

We deserve Your judgment as our leaders imagine a vain thing and break the ties with heaven and we turn to You, Oh God—and we beg You to have mercy.
 

The Prophet Isaiah said “There is none good, no not one; we like sheep have gone astray, each and every one to our own way. We have sinned and fallen short of Your glory.”
 
 
You said You would spare Sodom if there were but ten righteous. Would you spare us? Give us a chance to repent? Open eyes, ears and hearts to repent and we call upon You to save our eternal souls.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Please, in the name of Jesus, pour Your love on our leaders, bring our nation to its knees to humble ourselves, and heal our land.

Amen”
