Dear Friends of the Mordecai Project:
I know summer is a busy time and you are probably juggling many responsibilities and concerns. That is why it means so much to me that you take the time to read my newsletter and to pray for us. Thank you for your love and support!
Many of you have asked about my father. Thankfully he stabilized after a bout with an infection that almost turned into pneumonia. He is now resting comfortably in his nursing home and I have been able to visit him daily this week. As you can see in the photo below, he is still smiling! The nurses love him because he is so polite and he even sings as he rolls his wheelchair down the halls. The joy of the Lord is his strength at age 90.
I had a wonderful weekend of ministry at Freedom House in Amherst, Ohio. I did a women’s conference on Saturday, and there were women who came from other churches. Many received powerful breakthroughs and all were deeply encouraged to rise up and be Deborahs in these challenging days. God is empowering His daughters! Below you can see me with Pastor Paul Gonzalez. We have been close friends since 2011, and this was my third visit to the church. Paul has also been a speaker at Bold Venture.
I also spoke at Freedom House on Sunday morning and spent lots of time with some of the leaders there. Everyone was encouraged by the message on Sunday and by the prophetic ministry. Below you can see some of the members who gathered afterwards. I was blessed to have my spiritual son, Dante Lee Grady, with me on this trip, along with Jordan Furda from Pittsburgh.
God’s timing is so amazing. When I agreed to come to Freedom House many months ago, we had no idea that Pastor Paul Gonzalez would end up being asked to become a pastor at Belmont Church in Nashville, Tennessee. My weekend at Freedom House was just three weeks before Paul and his wife, Amy, will move to Nashville to begin a new season of ministry. Paul is being replaced by the young pastor below, Jason Jackson. I was able to pray over Paul, Amy, Jason and the church as they enter this season of transition. It was a holy moment! I am so blessed to be a part of these people’s lives.
I will be leaving next Tuesday for a very long journey to Kota-Kinabalu, Malaysia—an exotic city in eastern Malaysia. I will be flying almost 24 hours, and I will celebrate my birthday in the air! In fact I will leave on July 11 and arrive on July 13, so because of the time change I will miss my birthday altogether! (Does that mean I can stay the same age this year?) I will be doing a prophetic conference with Pastor Lin and Skyline Church, then I will go to Singapore for another week of ministry.
It is an honor to share the pulpit in Malaysia with one of my heroes, Rev. Naomi Dowdy (below), who pastored the 8,500-member Trinity Christian Center for many years. Today she is “retired” from pastoring, but she stays busy ministering all over the world. Naomi has been a great encouragement to me, and she is a shining example for women leaders. I have preached about her many times!
This is the second time I have been to Kota-Kinabalu to minister with Pastor Lin (below). He leads a dynamic Chinese church in a Muslim nation where it is illegal for the indigenous Malay people to convert to Christianity. Please pray for safety and grace on this trip. And pray that God’s favor will rest on this pastor and his church.
I am so happy that my spiritual son Clem Lo (below) from Melbourne, Australia, will be joining me on this trip—both Malaysia and Singapore. I met Clem when I spoke at the Global School of Supernatural Ministry a few years ago and we have remained close. Clem is getting married to his sweetheart, Alice, in December!
Please agree with me for the following:
** That my father will remain stable during my trip to Asia. No more falls!
** That Clem Lo and I will enjoy safe travel and stay healthy while we minister in Malaysia and Singapore. Pray for a powerful anointing on those meetings in Asia.
** That God will continue to provide the funds we need for our overseas projects and 2017 conferences. I am asking the Lord for a release of kingdom finances.
Deborah and I love you very much! Thank you again for your partnership in the gospel.
Lee and Deborah Grady
