November, 2010 Update

By: Nathan Pietsch

November was an amazing month for Dawn and I on the mission field. We were able to minister the entire month in the New Jersey and New York City areas. God showed up powerfully in many ways. Here is a brief list of some of the highlights from the month.

  • Numerous salvations—people received Jesus
  • Wrist pain healed
  • Ear pain healed
  • Several people’s legs supernaturally grew out
  • Woman delivered of bisexuality, bipolar, depression, self-mutilation
  • Ministered in drug rehab center
  • Dawn ministered to prostitute, resulted in salvation
  • Man walks without cane after being healed of Parkinson’s disease
  • Arthritis knee pain healed
  • Prophetic words released
  • Numerous demonic deliverances
  • Woman delivered of satanic oppression
  • Man walked after 11 years in wheelchair
  • Numerous baptisms in the Holy Spirit—evident by speaking in tongues
  • Destiny prophesied
  • Prayer marched in Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, Staten Island, Long Island, and New Jersey

Praise Report

Dawn and I ministered in a church in Newark, New Jersey. We heard this area was known for gangs, violence, and murder. On our drive home, we kept seeing people on the streets who needed Jesus. We knew we had to speak with them.

Our opportunity came. We saw a group of about ten African-American rough and tough looking guys. We are pretty sure they were part of a gang.

I pulled the car right next to them and said, “Hey, do any of you need any radical healing miracles right now?”

Several of them did, so Dawn and I asked if we could pray for them. They permitted us, and we got a word from the Lord that some of them had their hips out of alignment, resulting in an uneven leg length.

The group gathered around us, and I said, “Do you all want to see a miracle? God is going to grow his legs out so they are even right before your eyes. Not only that, He is going to use you to do it. Repeat after me.” I was surprised when the crowd was intently listening, watching, and repeating with authority what I was saying. I continued, “In the name of Jesus, we invite the Holy Spirit in. We command this right leg to grow, and be even with his left.”

As soon as the group said this, BAM!, his leg popped out about an inch. His body actually jolted as if something pulled on it. The crowd went ballistic. They had never seen anything like this before.

By the end of it, there were several supernatural healings, and six people received Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. (See www.youtube.com/user/AllSufficientGod. [Miracles in the Hood].)

Holy Spirit Invasion

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Nathan shares the Word
Men get filled with Holy Spirit - speak in tongues
Men prophecy over each other

November 30, 2010


Nathan Pietsch, a radical street evangelist of All Sufficient God Church, preaches the gospel at a drug rehabilitation center in New York City. The Holy Spirit drops upon the men in the audience and get baptized in the Holy Spirit and begin to speak in other tongues. (See Acts 2:4.)

After the men are filled with the Holy Spirit, they got activated in the gift of prophecy. They then began prophesying words of encouragement, life, and destiny over each other. (See I Corinthians 14:4.)

Salvation in North Bergen, New Jersey

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Woman gets saved

November 16, 2010


Today, Dawn and I went to North Bergen, New Jersey with Adam Livecchi, the founder of We See Jesus Ministries. We were able to minister the good news of Jesus Christ to a number of people. One woman in particular was despite for help. She knew she was unable to live this life without supernatural intervention from the Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. She received Jesus as her personal Lord and Savior.

Lord, thank you for revealing Yourself today out on the streets. We pray for a greater revelation of who You are over the people we encountered. Thank you, Lord. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Garden State Plaza Mall to Paterson Church

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Prayer marching
Prophetic words released

November 12, 2010


This morning, Dawn and I went to the Garden State Plaza mall in New Jersey. It is a very nice mall. We walked around the mall praying for the sanctification of the people and stores. I look forward to the day when all the stores glorify God, and all the filth is destroyed.

At night, Dawn and I went to a church in New Jersey with We See Jesus Ministries. Adam Livecchi, the founder of We See Jesus Ministries preached a powerful message there tonight, and asked if I wanted to release some prophetic words over the people as well. It was an amazing time.

Lord, thank you so much for what You did for all Your people today. Please continue to transform regions. Thank you, Lord. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Manhattan, New York

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Prayer over Manhattan

November 10, 2010

Today Dawn and I went into Manhattan via the bus from New Jersey. We walked all over Manhattan, going through Times Square, Central Park, and down 5th Avenue. We were able to pray over the region, and pray for a release of God’s given-destiny over the people.

Lord, thank you for this day. We are so grateful for all that You did. Please pour out Your Holy Spirit over New York City. Thank you, Lord. We pray all of this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

October, 2010 Update by Dawn

Shekinah Chronicles

By: Dawn Pietsch

October Update, 2010


As we left Bend, Oregon and journeyed across the United States to the east coast. The Lord had us pray and make declarations specifically for each state as we traveled through. It was apparent that nationwide revival is at hand.

When we arrived in Fort Mill, South Carolina we went to Morningstar Ministries, which is Rick Joyner’s Church. They were having a Harvest Conference with Bob Jones, Todd Bently, Ed Silvosa, Jake Hamilton and many others. It was full of praise, worship, healings, teachings, and outreach activities for three amazing days. Many salvations, healings, and miracles took place.

After the conference was over, we went to Charlotte, North Carolina to the Billy Graham Library. This place exuded the presence of the Lord. The original home that Billy Graham grew up in was on the property along with a museum of history and a gift store. This also had the grave site of his late wife Ruth Graham. Truly this was an amazing place to go.

Next we headed to Winston-Salem, North Carolina to a town that the Moravians settled at. The Moravian people were originally from Germany. The Moravian people had a strong religious conviction to worship the Lord through prayer and example. While at Winston-Salem Nathan encountered a man with a withered hand. He prayed for the man and his hand was healed miraculously.

Next we went to the town of Moravian Falls, North Carolina for a truly awesome experience. The Moravians prayed over this land 24/7 for more than a hundred years, which was very evident. The presence of the Lord was so thick that you could hear Him so easily and clearly. Many people come here for this reason. We met many wonderful people who blessed us and prayed for us. Thank you Apple Hill Lodge for providing us a place to stay.

We then left for Lynchburg, Virginia, where we met up with one of Nathan’s friends from preschool. This friend and his family took us in for several days. They have six children and one on the way. This family was truly amazing! Their children were home schooled and brought up in the Lord. We also met and fellowshiped with other amazing large families like the DeVoss family. They really blessed us.

We did outreach in Lynchburg and many salvations, baptisms of the Holy Spirit, and miracles took place. We met a man and asked if he needed prayer, and he responded.. “For salvation!” It was so easy.

After leaving Lynchburg, we passed through Appomattox, where the Civil War was fought. Driving through this area you could feel in the atmosphere many different emotions. The Lord had us pray specifically for this area because of the bloodshed and loss of life that took place in this area. We continued praying as we traveled up to Ashland, Virginia.

We then arrived at Calvary Campground, which is the original home and ministry center for the Heflin Family. Ruth Ward Heflin was an amazing evangelist who traveled extensively throughout the world and preached the gospel to every nation. We were able to attend a Conference and meet many wonderful people. Thank you Calvary Campground for providing us a place to stay and for feeding us.

While there, we met a couple from Russia. Previously, the gospel was preached to the people of Russia from a team from Calvary Campground two decades ago, and there was a revival that took place where many Russians were saved and given bibles. They never had the privilege to have bibles before. Because of this, many churches were started and this very couple was sent to the United States to preach the gospel to the Americans in appreciation for the salvation that was brought to them.

We also heard that an enormous amount of Korean people have come to the United States to share the gospel with us also, because we first shared it with them. Presently the Korean Church is the largest Christian church in the world. What better gift could you give to a nation that already has so much?

After we left Virginia we went to Washington DC, and stayed with Nathan’s cousin’s family. What an amazing place to see with so much history behind it. We went to all the historical sites that the Lord had laid on our hearts. We were able to pray for the people and over all of the land.

Our next location was a worship conference in Hockessin, Delaware. We were able to meet many amazing musicians and people. Catherine Mullins, Judah Nation, Demetria and Joseph Stallings, O’shay Lolley, and many others were there for 5 days of worship. Demetria and Joseph Stallings were one of the musicians that we enjoyed fellowship with also at the Calvary Campground in Ashland, VA. Judah Nation was so awesome to provide us a place to stay while there. The State of Delaware is on fire for the Lord, and true revival is in their hearts.

We feel so blessed to be apart of this revival by traveling across the United States and seeing it take place in every state. God is stirring his children’s hearts to seek and love on His lost children.

Thank you for all those who support us and enable us to do the things that God is calling us to do. Bless each and everyone of you, we love you so much.

Shekinah Chronicles

By: Nathan D. Pietsch

October Update, 2010


October was an amazing month for Dawn and I on the mission field. God showed up in many wonderful ways. God is doing greater and greater things, in which we are honored to be a part of. It is going to only get better too. Here is a brief list of some of the highlights from this month.
  • Attended Harvest Fest, MorningStar, S. Carolina
  • Numerous salvations
  • Neck and foot healed
  • Prophesied destinies
  • Knee healed
  • Numerous baptisms in the Holy Spirit
  • Visited the Billy Graham Library
  • Visited Moravian Falls, North Carolina
  • Reunion with friend since preschool, Gabe Smith
  • Withered hand healed, carpal tunnel gone
  • Words of encouragement released
  • Visited Calvary Campground in Virginia
  • Man delivered of pornography, homosexuality, pedophilia
  • Encouraging words released
  • Reunion with my cousin, Dawn Price
  • Outreach in Washington D.C.

Praise Report

Dawn and I drove to Winston-Salem, N.C. on our way to Virginia. We started to get hungry and decided to go to the C. Winkler Bakery for some food.
Sitting outside of the bakery, a man (50’s) and his wife (50’s) were highlighted to me. From a long distance away, my eyes zeroed in on a wrist brace the man was wearing. I knew God was going to do something.

I approached the couple sitting on the bench and said, “It looks like you hurt your wrist.”

The man replied, “Well, I didn’t really hurt it, I have carpal tunnel syndrome. I had surgery on it two years ago.” His right hand was also affected and unable to open. He basically had a withered hand.

“Hey, do you mind if I pray for your hand to open up?” I asked. “We see radical healing miracles all the time.”

“Oh, I guess I don’t mind,” he said.

After about five minutes, both him and his wife had open jaws as they looked at his hand. God had touched it radically, and he was able to open it nearly all the way. This was a radical miracle that happened before our very eyes, and they couldn’t deny it.

I asked them if they wanted to rededicate their lives to the Lord and they replied, “We’ve already done that.” They were already saved, but God still wanted to heal them.

God is doing great and marvelous things in these days. Every believer has the same Holy Spirit as Jesus had. We are all called to do greater works. (See John 14:12.)

Jesus is Lord

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Woman receives Jesus, speaks in tongues

October 22, 2010

Dawn and I have been staying at the Calvary Pentecostal Tabernacle Campground in Ashland, Virginia. It is an amazing place. However, there was one lady who was really highlighted to both Dawn and I. Her name is “Samantha.” We found out “Samantha” has been living at the Campground for about 6-7 years. If you have ever been to this Campground, you know how amazing it is. However, Samantha did not seem like she really belonged at this ministry. She didn’t show any fruit of the Holy Spirit. (See Galatians 5:21-22.)

When we would attempt to talk with her, she would not look at us in the eyes. She seemed really uncomfortable when we would even mention Jesus. We asked “Samantha” if she remembers when she accepted Jesus into her heart, and she didn’t know when. We also asked if she could speak in tongues, and she could not. The people at this campground love to speak in tongues, and so do I.

Dawn and I had been loving on “Samantha” since we arrived here. After service tonight, the Lord had me talk with “Samantha” in the dining hall where everybody was. I walked up to her and knelt down on one knee so that I could be eye-level with her, since she was in a chair. I said, “Samantha,” tonight is the night. Are you ready to receive?” She knew exactly what I was talking about, and without any resistance, she said, “Yes.” All the previous times we talked about Jesus with her, she didn’t want anything to do with it.

I then lead “Samantha” through the sinner’s prayer. She began to smile, which was the first time I had seen her smile. She then got filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in tongues. It was a great moment, but very alarming. Just because a person attends a church doesn’t mean they have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Church doesn’t save a person, but Jesus does. Everyone of us needs a personal relationship with Jesus Himself.

Lord, we pray that You would continue to minister deeply to “Samantha.” You are so in love with her. May she cherish the relationship she now has with You. We pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Women’s Conference

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Women’s Conference—Calvary Campground

October 22-24, 2010

Dawn and I stayed for the women’s conference we got invited to attend by Jane Lowder. Dawn got to enjoy it because she is a woman, and I got to “work” at it. It was fabulous. They trained me to operate one of the video cameras, and I was responsible for filming the DVD of this conference that is going to go worldwide. I was also given the privilege to “catch.”

Often times when a powerful person of God prays for another individual, the Holy Spirit will fall upon that person so much that the person receiving prayer will fall to the ground. It happens all the time, and to me many times. It is called the Kabod, or weighty glory of God. (See II Chronicles 5:13-14.)

My job was to keep the people from hitting their heads on the floor. While I am catching, I am also able to receive all the anointings that are being released.

The three main speakers at the conference were: Jane Lowder, Debbie Zimmer, and Jeweline Stallings. These women are dynamic and powerful generals of God. They have such a strong anointing upon their lives. I never thought I would say something like this, but it was a great honor to be at a women’s conference. I had all three of these women pray and prophecy over my life. Something certainly happened.

Lord, thank you so much that You are willing to use any willing vessel. Thank you for this ministry and this conference. May we all be filled with Your Holy Spirit fire. Thank you, Lord. We pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Sexual Deliverance

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Man delivered of pornography, homosexuality, pedophilia

October 19, 2010

Today I met a guy named, “Fred” (30’s) in Ashland, Virginia. “Fred” has an amazing calling upon his life, but the enemy has had a stronghold in his life. “Fred” has been a Christian for a number of years, but he has struggled with a number of sexual sins. Praise God, he was bold enough to open up and ask for prayer.

The Holy Spirit began to reveal to me some specific details about his life. He had some deep wounds from his childhood. He wanted to be set free of all this baggage. He began to confess past sins—whether acted upon or fantasies—to both me and the Lord. He was bringing light to the darkness.

We could both feel the Holy Spirit removing these secrets. There was also a lot of shame, guilt, and grief “Fred” was carrying. We broke that off in the name of Jesus. I could begin to see a transformation in “Fred.”

After sins had been confessed, and the blood of Jesus had washed them away, we closed the doors on satanic oppression. After this occurred, the enemy no longer had “legal” rights to remain. I looked into “Fred’s” eyes and commanded all unclean spirits, evil spirits, demons, and satan away from “Fred.” “Fred” was absolutely relieved, and the Lord is going to use him mightily.

Dear Lord, thank you so much for delivering “Fred” of sexual pollution. Please keep him pure to his wife for the rest of his life. May he never have such abominable desires again. Thank you, Lord. We pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Calvary Pentecostal Campground

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Calvary Pentecostal Campground

October 14-25, 2010


Dawn and I left Concord, Virginia and drove to Ashland, Virginia. It was a wonderful drive, as we saw old Civil War battlegrounds. It was sad to be in a place knowing so many people were in these battles.

Our time at Calvary Pentecostal Campground has been amazing so far. This ministry was founded in 1937 by the Heflin family. Perhaps their daughter, Ruth Ward Heflin is the most famous of them. While she was still alive, she traveled and ministered in every country on earth. She would minister to kings, queens, nobles, and presidents. She would also have amazing Holy Spirit manifestations of gold cover her when she would worship.

Dawn and I have been able to glean from the rich heritage here. This campground is known for its prophetic anointing. The current camp director, Jane Lowder prophesied over Dawn and I. We have also received other prophetic words from people here. Dawn and I were preparing to leave the campground when Jane invited Dawn and I stay longer.

At first, Dawn and I did not think we should stay any longer. While we were packing up the car, I felt the Holy Spirit speak to me and say we needed to stay. There is a conference here at the campground this coming weekend. When we told some of the staff here we were planning on staying a little longer, they were thrilled. When we told them Jane invited us, they were amazed. Jane and this campground are exceedingly generous, but apparently it is rare for Jane to invite people to stay longer. Perhaps she saw something amazing in store for us.

Lord, please bless Calvary Campground. They have been so wonderful to us. Please pour out an abundance over them for their generosity. Thank you, Lord. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Revival Fire in Concord

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Baptisms in the Holy Spirit

October 13-14, 2010

Dawn and I left our dear friends’ home this morning. We had an amazing time at Gabe and Rebecca’s place. Dawn and I were prepared to travel to our next location, the Calvary Pentecostal Campground in Ashland, Virginia. This is where Ruth Ward Heflin, and her family previously ministered. However, the Lord had other immediate plans. We found ourselves going in a different direction.

On this last Sunday at church, the Holy Spirit introduced us to a couple named, Ron (40’s) and Bobbie (39). They invited us over to their house for dinner. They even invited us to stay the night if we wanted. Last week, the Lord gave me an itinerary of the amount of time we were to stay in these various areas. There was a one-day gap the Lord had me put in between Gabe’s house and Calvary Campground. I didn’t understand it at the time, but I do now. We were supposed to stay with Ron and Bobbie, so we decided to receive their offer.

Dawn and I made it to their house for dinner. Two other couples, Todd (40’s) and Cindy (40’s), and Caleb (20’s) and Kristina (20’s) also came over. Bobbie had briefly shared our testimony to them at church on Sunday, and they wanted to learn more about what God is doing in our lives.

All six of them are Baptists with deep roots, but the Holy Spirit has been stirring them.
We all sat around the dinner table and talked. They pounded us—in a loving way—with questions. Some of them believed, others didn’t believe what the scriptures say regarding spiritual gifts. It is not our job to “change someone’s mind,” it is the Holy Spirit’s job. It is our job to release truth in love.

The three women were extremely hungry for more of God. We could feel them pulling on Heaven. Earlier today, I had a vision of the Holy Spirit dropping, and people being filled with the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues. The ladies were absolutely ripe for God’s outpouring. When Caleb and Kristina were getting ready to leave, the Holy Spirit prompted me to ask Kristina if she wanted to receive the gift of speaking in tongues. Boldly in front of everyone, she said, “Yes, I do. If it is of God, I want it.” Dawn and I quickly prayed and prophesied over both Caleb and Kristina. We then activated her in speaking in tongues, and she did. She began to weep, as she felt the release of the Holy Spirit. It was an amazing moment.

Sometime later, Dawn and I were able to pray for Cindy. Cindy is a power house in the Spirit with a strong deliverance ministry. She also got filled with the Spirit and began to speak in tongues. The Lord really showed me that He is calling all of His people to Him regardless of one’s denomination. God is destroying paradigms of people’s beliefs. God is invading our powerless man-made boxes of God.

We also prayed and prophesied over Bobbie, but we got interrupted and had to stop. However, this morning, Bobbie asked if Dawn and I would pray for her some more. We were super happy and eager to do so. Bobbie wanted to receive her prayer language, and began to speak in tongues. Bobbie told us she has been praying to God to send somebody to help her understand what the Lord has been speaking to her about. The Lord sent us to minister, and we are so appreciative and honored that the Lord would use us in this ministry. Bobbie said something to us that was very impacting. She said, “Thank you for packing up all your stuff in Oregon, getting in your car, and going where God sends you.” This meant a lot to us.

Through these three women, the Lord has just started revival fire in Concord. I have no doubt of that. These three women are the catalyst behind a spiritual awakening of God’s glory in this region. It is going to spread from them to many others.

Lord, we so thank you for all You did tonight. We pray a protection over all us. Thank you for the revival fires You just started. We know You have huge plans for this region and Your people in this region. We very much looking forward to seeing what You are going to do here. Thank you, Lord. We pray all of this in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Church in Lynchburg

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Church in Lynchburg

October 10, 2010


Gabe and his wonderful wife, Rebecca took their children, Dawn, and I to church this morning. We actually went to two different churches throughout the day. If a person is a Christian in this community, more than likely they are Baptist. We love the Baptists, and they love the Lord. It was really interesting sitting in the churches though. God has so much more to give to anybody who wants to receive it. We did meet some very wonderful people today.

Lord, please pour out Your Holy Spirit on all Your churches around the world. Please don’t let lies keep people from fulfilling their destinies in You. Please ignite Your churches in love and power. Thank you, Lord. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Lynchburg, Virginia

Lynchburg, Virginia

October 9, 2010


Gabe and Rebecca took Dawn and I around the city to give us the lay-out of the land. We are planning on doing street evangelism on Monday and we would like to find some areas where the people are going to be. They took us all over the area. We’ve even got pictures to prove it. It is a very nice place.

Lord, please pour out Your revival fire over Lynchburg. Please help this city put-off the traditions of men, and put-on the Holy Spirit. Thank you, Lord. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Moravian Falls: Day 4

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Intercessor’s group
Angel rock
Prayer mountain

October 7, 2010


Dawn and I woke up early so we could join Albert and Anna Rountree at their home and the other intercessors. We were so blessed listening to the live music of, Ralph (50’s) and Helen (50’s). They even gave Dawn and I two of their music CD’s. The CD’s are entitled, Holy Mountain and Sacred Wind: Songs of the Kingdom. I highly recommend them. We had an amazing time in the Glory.

Later, Dawn and I went up to Angel Rock. We stayed up there for several hours. This place is truly anointed. The Moravians prayed over this land for a 100 years, and you can tell. Dawn and I made a number of Kingdom declarations while at Angel Rock.

After Angel Rock, Dawn and I met up with Jacquiline. We all ate dinner together, and then decided to hike up to Prayer Mountain in the dark. We were all certainly anxious to encounter the Lord. We sat up on the mountain for two hours praying, singing, dancing, and laughing. None of us saw Jesus or any angels manifest in the natural realm, but I had an amazing vision with my spiritual eyes.

I saw this long corridor with a purple carpet laid on it. This carpet stretched all the way to a throne. Lined on both sides of the corridor were angels with wings wearing white robes all playing a golden trumpet. The trumpets were pretty long in length. As I looked closer directly in front of me, I saw Jesus standing there. He was nearly close enough to touch.

Jesus was wearing His royal garments. He was clothed with a beautiful Kingly robe, and was wearing a golden crown with magnificent jewels inlaid. Jesus was holding a sword in both hands at His waist. The blade was pointing up, and the flat of the blade was resting upon His forehead. Jesus was standing there as if He was waiting for something. It looked like He was waiting to “knight” us, but the vision ended. I’m not really sure what it all meant. If anybody has an interpretation, I would love to hear it.

Lord, thank you for encountering us today. We long for greater encounters with You. There is so much You want to do in all Your people. We ask you to do it. Thank you, Lord. We pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Moravian Falls: Day 3

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Lorie’s departure
Radical intercessors

October 6, 2010


This morning was a sad day because we had to take Lorie to the Charlotte Airport. She is flying back home to Bend, Oregon. We all had a really great time though. We look forward to our next Glory adventure with Lorie. God is so much fun.

After Dawn and I dropped Lorie off at the airport, we drove back to Moravian Falls. We decided to go back for a couple more days. We got invited to stay at the Apple Hill Lodge. We are really excited about that. We love this place.

As soon as Dawn and I arrived, we met five ladies who were praying on the deck porch at the lodge. It was obvious they are mighty intercessors. They asked us if we wanted to pray with them. We decided to join. We learned their names: Teresa (40’s), Cheryl (40’s), Tanya (50’s), Teal (30’s), and Kathleen (30’s). This is a powerhouse group.

We all spent several hours praying and talking about how wonderful God is. This was truly a Divine appointment. They blessed and encouraged us so much. We had a remarkable evening with them. They all drove here from another city in North Carolina just to hear clearer from the Lord. It was perfect timing for us to meet them.

Lord, we pray a very special blessing upon Lorie, Harry and Louise, Teresa, Cheryl, Tanya, Teal, and Kathleen. Pour out Your ooey gooey Glory upon them all. We pray this in the name of Jesus.

Moravian Falls: Day 2

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Albert and Ann Rountree
Apple Hill Lodge

October 5, 2010


Dawn, Lorie, and I all heard of an intercessor's group near prayer mountain, so we decided to go to it this morning. We found out the leaders of the group are Albert (70’s) and Ann (60’s) Rountree. We learned that Ann has Heavenly encounters nearly everyday. The Lord takes her into Heaven, and gives her amazing glimpses into the Heavenly realm. It was through these experiences with the Lord that inspired the book she has written. Ann gave Lorie and Dawn both a personalized autographed book. It was an amazing time.

We heard of another group meeting tonight at the Apple Hill Lodge. This meeting was hosted by Harry (80’s) and Louise (70’s). They were both in the ministry for years, and Harry is also an author of a book. They are both amazing people. Harry gave Dawn and I his book and autographed it as a gift. Harry also asked me if I would stand up in front of the group (fifteen people) and give my testimony of how we became traveling missionaries. I was happy to do so. We met some fabulous people today.

Lord, thank you so much for the amazing encounters. We so appreciate our new friends. We ask that you would continue to bring people into our lives that we can bless and be blessed by. We pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Moravian Falls: Day 1

Moravian falls
Prayer mountain
Angel rock
MorningStar church home group

October 4, 2010


Dawn, Lorie, and I have never been to Moravian Falls, North Carolina before. We really have no idea where to go, or what to see. We have a friend in Sisters, Oregon who owns a house over here, so she gave us several people to contact. God worked it out perfectly, and we got directions to prayer mountain and angel rock. These are two areas where people have amazing encounters with the Lord. Sometimes people physically see angels appear in the natural realm.

We all found our way to the top of prayer mountain. We stayed up here for several hours. It was very peaceful. I could see myself living in this area for short periods at a time.

Earlier today, we called Gary Oates Ministries to see if there is any worship/glory parties happening this week. The office secretary, Jacquiline from England returned my phone call. She was very friendly, and actually invited to show us around the area. She took us to Angel Rock. It is a very special place up here.

After we stayed here for awhile, Jackie took us to a home group based out of MorningStar Church. We had a lot of fun. It is nice to meet such radical people for Jesus.

Lord, thank you for Your wonderful people. Thank you for all that You do for us. We ask that You would pour out a huge blessing upon all the people who help us. We pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.

MorningStar Church to Moravian Falls

By Nathan D. Pietsch

New adventures

October 3, 2010


Dawn, Lorie, and I all went to MorningStar church this morning. Ed Silvoso talked on transforming cities. We are ready to change the world for God’s glory. After church, we all headed to Moravian Falls, North Carolina. We have heard of this place being really anointed. I guess the Moravian people prayed 24/7 over this region for 100 years. People can have amazing God encounters here. Of course, you can encounter God anywhere, but there are different levels of God’s glory deposited on the earth.

MorningStar Church Harvest Fest: Day 3

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Amazing worship
Amazing teaching
Miracle healings

October 2, 2010


Today was the grand finale of the MorningStar Harvest Fest. We were so thankful to have this experience. Todd Bentley had a revival healing service where many miracles occurred. Deaf people began to hear, metal supernaturally dissolved in people’s bodies, and all sorts of physical ailments were healed.

Lord, thank you that You are the same yesterday, today, and forever. Thank you that you heal people because of Your great love for them. Please continue to pour out Your Spirit on all flesh. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

September Update

By Nathan D. Pietsch

September, 2010 update from the mission field

October 1, 2010


It is such an exciting time to be alive. We believe we are living in the days the prophet Joel spoke of in Joel 2:28-30—

28 “And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. 29 And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. 30 “And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke.”

It is an honor to be able to release the love of Jesus on God’s people. Here is a brief list of some of the highlights from the mission field in September.

  • Attended theCall in Sacramento, CA with 400,000 others praying for our nation
  • Man regained mobility in ankle, pain left leg
  • Reunion with family and friends in Oregon
  • Multiple salvations
  • Legs supernaturally grew out on several people
  • Baptisms of the Holy Spirit
  • Satanic deliverance of suicide, witchcraft, new age
  • Cross country travel: Oregon to South Carolina
  • Prayed against cancer
  • Prophetic words of destiny released
  • Severely possessed man encounters God
  • Prayed for numerous people

Praise Report


On May 16, 2010, the Lord gave me a prophetic word at our ministry school’s graduation. This word was specifically for someone who lived at a “742” street address. After all these months, I received this testimony from a women I don’t know named, Becca.

Becca wrote, “You gave me a word about financial breakthrough at the BSSD [Bethel School of Supernatural Discipleship] graduation. I used to live on 742 9th Street, and I totally got breakthrough a month and a half ago. I was working at --, and it was killing me, I was barely making enough money to get by. -- closes for 3 weeks during summer, and during the last week it was open, I kept ringing up $7.42 orders, and I was like “Good, God hasn’t forgotten about me.”

The night before I officially got breakthrough, I looked at a friends microwave and it said 7:42 (the time). I applied for a job at -- and I was sure I didn’t get it because they took so long to get back to me, but I did get the job. And I knew it was the breakthrough. I’m making about 4 times as much now and I don’t need to worry about money which is amazing, although I’m not planning on spending unwisely.

Anyway, God is good, and he came through like always :)”

In the name of Jesus, we release this testimony of financial breakthrough over you. Lord, we pray a supernatural blessing upon Your people. Amen.

God is getting ready to make a distinction between His people—those who have fully committed themselves to Him—and those who are still of this world. Let’s surrender all.

Morning Star Church Harvest Fest: Day 1

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Amazing worship
Amazing teaching

September 30, 2010


Today is the first day of the MorningStar Church Harvest Fest 2010. It was a time of amazing worship and teaching. This event has two primary sessions, but with all the vendors, you could spend all day here. Some of the speakers this weekend consist of: Rick Joyner, Todd Bentley, Bob Jones, Frank Turok, Bob Weiner, Sammy Rodriguez, and Ed Silvoso. It is going to be an amazing Holy Spirit led Harvest Fest. Jake Hamilton is also here to release God’s glory through music.

Burning Ones Revival Meeting

By Nathan D. Pietsch

North Carolina, South Carolina
“Burning ones” revival meeting with Rick Joyner and Todd Bentley

September 29, 2010


Dawn and I made it to the Candlewood Suites in Charlotte, N.C. at noon. Later tonight, we need to pick our friend, Lorie up from the airport. Lorie is our dear friend from Oregon. She is flying out to attend the Harvest Fest.

At 2:00 PM, Rick Joyner and Todd Bentley had a “burning ones” revival meeting. They both taught powerful messages, and stirred the Body of Christ up to win souls for Jesus. At 7:00 PM, they had another “burning ones” sessions with impartation. Dawn, Lorie, and I all got hands laid on by Todd Bentley. The Holy Spirit used Todd Bentley for the massive Lakeland, Florida Holy Spirit outpouring in 2007. Todd has an amazing anointing upon his life.

Cross Country Travel: Part IV

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee

September 28, 2010


Dawn and I resumed our cross country travel towards South Carolina this morning. We had an amazing time with the people at YWAM Heartland. We also really enjoyed the International House of Prayer. We were able to release a lot of the Kingdom while we were here, and also get filled back up in the prayer room.

We made it back on the road east, to resume our travels to North and South Carolina. We are planning on attending the 2010 Harvest Fest hosted by Rick Joyner and MorningStar Church. We traveled through Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky and eventually slept in a rest area for the night in Tennessee.

Wal-mart Outreach

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Nathan's birthday
Wal-mart outreach

September 27, 2010


Today, is my birthday. Dawn, Jonathan W. (20's), and I all decided to go to Wal-mart for an outreach. We love to see people encounter the Living God—the Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. God is so awesome, and we want everybody to know how awesome He really is.

Once we arrived at Wal-mart, an older gentleman (60’s) was highlighted. He was sort of struggling with his shopping cart, so we didn’t want to miss any opportunity. We walked over to ask if he needed some help. After a few minutes of small talk to break the ice, and learning his name is, Bob, we asked him if he needed any prayer.

“Yes,” Bob replied. “I was reaching up to grab something off the shelf for my wife, and I felt a tear in my abdomen. I think I have some sort of hernia.”

Jonathan,—who is a radical for Jesus—commanded healing in Bob’s body in the name of Jesus. Dawn and I stood in agreement. We didn’t see any instant healing miracles, but Bob was certainly touched. He just had a love encounter with God.

We continued to minister to several other people inside the store. There wasn’t much receptivity, but we released the Kingdom, and prayed over the Halloween section of the store. Halloween is a poison filled “holiday,” that pollutes the mind of people. Halloween is a serious stronghold over this nation. Since Dawn, Jonathan, and I are constantly on the front lines in spiritual warfare, dealing with severely demon possessed people, I think we have authority to say, “The stronghold of Halloween needs to come down. Why should we let our children participate in a 'death related holiday?'" We see way too much in the spirit realm to think Halloween should be tolerated.

Lord, we pray for a fresh revelation for Your church to see the seriousness of the darkness associated with Halloween. Release Your revelations now. May Your church be a people who chooses life. May we be people who go out and pray over people and regions on Halloween night. May we release the love of You onto others. It is Your perfect love that casts out all fear. Halloween is primarily a fear-fest. Please transform it into a Holy love-fest of You. Thank you, Lord. We pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Cross Country Travel: Part III

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri
International House of Prayer's 24/7 prayer and worship house

September 25, 2010

We made it back on the road at 9:00 AM. We made it into Iowa from Nebraska for a short time, and then down into Missouri. We arrived at the International House of Prayer (IHOP) at 2:30 PM. We went to the 24/7 prayer and worship house. We were able to hear Misty Edwards play the keyboard and sing for 1.5 hours. I am a big fan of her music. She sang a sang that settled into me...

"Don’t give up, don’t give in, if you don’t quit, you’ll win."

This ministered to me very much.

We then went over to YWAM (Youth With A Mission) Heartland. We intend to stay here for several days. It is a very nice place. I highly recommend it if you are coming to Kansas City, Missouri.

We got situated here, and got ready for the IHOPU Awakening revival meeting.

Cross Country Travel: Part II

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska

September 24, 2010

We woke up frequently throughout the night, so we decided to get back on the road around 7:00 AM. We finished our drive through Utah, and went into Wyoming. We eventually made it through Wyoming after eating in Laramie.

Our next state was Nebraska. Nebraska is so clean, and the freeways are very manicured. This is a very nice state. It is my first visit to Nebraska. We slept in a rest area in the car at 11:30 PM.

Cross Country Travel: Part I

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Oregon, Idaho, Utah

September 23, 2010

Today Dawn and I are starting our cross country travel to South Carolina. We headed east on highway 20 out of Bend, Oregon. We drove through Oregon, Idaho, and into Utah to reach I-80 east. We slept at a rest area for the night at 5800’ altitude in the Utah mountains. It certainly got cold on us.

Update on: Satanic Deliverance to Jesus Christ

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Amazing reformation

September 19, 2010


Dawn, Lorie, and I took Tina to church with us on Sunday. Tina looked absolutely amazing. She had an abundance of energy, and healthy glow in her face. Tina told us that her daughter and other people who have seen her have commented saying, “Something is different about you now. What happened?”

What happened, is that Jesus came into her life and is completely transforming it for the good.

Lord, we bless you for Your work in Tina. We pray that You would continue to do Your work in her. Thank you, Lord. We pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Friend and Family Reunion

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Friend and Family Reunion

September 5-12, 2010


Dawn and I were able to spend some time in Southern Oregon visiting family and friends. Time seemed to go by much faster than we would have liked. However, it was still a wonderful visit with friends and family.

Lord, we pray a special blessing upon all of our friends and family. Give them all a revelation of just how awesome You really are. Thank you, Lord. We pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Bethel Church in Redding

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Bethel Church

Man regains mobility in ankle, shooting pain leaves leg

September 5, 2010


Today was an en core to theCall, at least for Dawn and I. Dawn and I were able to attend what we consider our “home church” of Bethel in Redding, California.

It was wonderful to be back in this culture of revival. We were able to see a number of friends, including Jason Chin and Kristina Waggoner. Jason and Kristina are two of our favorite revivalists. We love them dearly.

Lord, we pray you would continue to bless Bethel Church and the leaders there. We honor this ministry and pray the best for it. We pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.


The Call: Day 2

By Nathan D. Pietsch

The Call: Day 2

September 4, 2010


Today is the second day of, theCall-Sacramento. Dawn and I entered into third Heaven intercession and worship as we corporately prayed in front of the California state capital. Our primary emphasis was praying against the homosexual ideology, and the brutal murder of abortion. It was an amazing time. It really felt as if we were all reshaping and forming history as we made Kingdom declarations.

Many of the United States’ major apostolic and prophetic leaders attended theCall. Some of the leaders included: Bill and Beni Johnson, Che Ahn, Wesley and Stacy Campbell, Cindy Jacobs, Dick Eastman, and Lou Engle. There was an all-star cast of spiritual mothers and fathers.

Today was a day for the record books. Che Ahn actually prophesied that today marks the start of the next Jesus People Movement revivals. I believe this is true. We are on the verge of revival, and we say, “Come, Lord Jesus.”

Lord, we so thank you for honoring mankind enough to hear our prayers and heed our requests. Thank you for your great mercy. You are an amazing God. We pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

The Call: Day 1

September 3, 2010


Today is the first day of, theCall-Sacramento. Dawn and I drove the distance from Ventura County, California to Sacramento. TheCall is hosted by, Lou Engle. It was an amazing time of throne room worship at Raley Field. God’s presence filled the stadium and beyond. I am really happy to be associated with, theCall.

Lord, we pray an abundant blessing upon the ministry you have entrusted with Lou Engle. Please continue to bless and flourish this ministry. Thank you for having mercy upon Your people. We pray all this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Santa Barbara Cemetery

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Santa Barbara Cemetery
Neck and back healed

August 17, 2010


Dawn and I are currently staying in Santa Barbara for a few days. Dawn has had a small bookkeeping job for the past several years with a company, and we are here for Dawn to update the books. Dawn has been busy, so I have been sightseeing and hitting the streets by myself.

Our friends whom we are staying with, let me borrow one of their bikes. I rode down the beach and went to the bird refuge. I stayed at the bird refuge for a couple of hours talking with the Lord.

On my bike ride to the bird refuge, I noticed the Santa Barbara Cemetery. The Lord gave me a name of a person whom I thought was buried in the cemetery. I heard the name, “John Hopkins.” A moment later, I heard in a smaller voice, “Joseph (Hopkins).” I have no idea who this person is, or if they even exist. I have never even been to this cemetery before.

I have heard stories of modern day people going to cemeteries to pick up “mantles” that have fallen at gravesides of the deceased. This concept is taken directly from II Kings chapters 2 and 13. In the book of II Kings 2:8-14, the Bible says—

8 Now Elijah took his mantle, rolled it up, and struck the water; and it was divided this way and that, so that the two of them crossed over on dry ground. 9 And so it was, when they had crossed over, that Elijah said to Elisha, “Ask! What may I do for you, before I am taken away from you?” Elisha said, “Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me.” 10 So he said, “You have asked a hard thing. Nevertheless, if you see me when I am taken from you, it shall be so for you; but if not, it shall not be so.” 11 Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. 12 And Elisha saw it, and he cried out, “My father, my father, the chariot of Israel and its horsemen!” So he saw him no more. And he took hold of his own clothes and tore them into two pieces. 13 He also took up the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and went back and stood by the bank of the Jordan. 14 Then he took the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and struck the water, and said, “Where is the LORD God of Elijah?” And when he also had struck the water, it was divided this way and that; and Elisha crossed over.

The Bible says in II Kings 13:20-21—

20 Then Elisha died, and they buried him. And the raiding bands from Moab invaded the land in the spring of the year. 21 So it was, as they were burying a man, that suddenly they spied a band of raiders; and they put the man in the tomb of Elisha; and when the man was let down and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived and stood on his feet.

Many scholars believe Elisha’s “mantle” fell at his grave, because he did not have a protege. This is why the dead man whom touched Elisha’s dry bones revived and stood on his feet.

I don’t know who, John Hopkins is, but it was worth my effort to ride the bike up the hill to the cemetery. I decided to ask some workers if they knew of any gravestones with the name, John Hopkins on it. They didn’t, but they called the office. The reply was, “There aren’t any John Hopkins buried here, but there is a Joseph and Jesse Hopkins.”

Joseph was the other name I heard, so I decided to go to that grave. The workers took me right to the spot. It continued to get more and more interesting. Buried on Joseph’s immediate right was probably his wife named, Edith N. Hopkins (1882-1978). Buried right next to Edith was John Lowery (June 14, 1892-January 23, 1976). Then buried on Joseph’s immediate left was Edna M. St. John (1893-1961), and next to her was Harry St. John (1882-1963). Joseph was surrounded by “Johns.”

I felt as if the Lord instructed me to jump on Joseph Hopkins’ grave four times, and then yell as loud as I could, “Wakey, wakey!” I did this, and waited for something to happen. I didn’t experience anything in the natural. I have no idea what any of this meant, but surely the Lord had brought me to this spot. When I got home, I did a minimal search on Joseph E. Hopkins, but I didn’t find anything. I still don’t know who he was.

After my experience at the cemetery, I rode to the skateboard park down by the beach. I am very impressed with the skill of skateboarders. These guys do amazing tricks, and oftentimes eat it hard on the pavement.

A young skater kid around 15 years, was sitting on the outside of the board park. I decided to go over and talk with him. I asked him, “Do you ever get injured skateboarding?”

“Ya, pretty much everyday.”

“What’s the worst injury you have every had?”

“Several years ago, I basically did a head dive on the pavement. I actually cracked a vertebrae in my neck.”

“Does it still hurt you?” I asked.

“Ya, it still hurts, and is always stiff.”

“Do you ever get numbness, or shooting down your arms?”

“Oh ya, I will move my head and an electrical shock thing will shoot down my arm.”

“Is there anything else that hurts? How’s your back?”

“My back hurts too.”

“Hey, do you mind if I speak healing into your body?”

“What? What does that mean?”

“I’m going to command instant healing in your body right now, if that’s ok with you.”

“Sure, I guess so.”

“In the name of Jesus I command healing in your body right now. I command all the pain to go to the cross. Are you feeling anything going on in your body?”

He moved his head around a little and said, “Wow, my neck just popped. My neck feels way looser, and so does my back. Thanks a lot. I think I’m going to go test it out on my board.”

Lord, we pray a huge blessing over Santa Barbara, California. Let these skateboarders all come to know You as their personal Lord and Savior. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Retirement Home

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Salvation?

August 7, 2010



While Dawn and I were eating breakfast with my Grandma, a man was highlighted to me. I walked over to him and introduced myself. You could see on his face that he had a lot of turmoil. I gathered some information, and found out his name is Charlie, and yesterday was his 96th birthday. He also previously worked as a card dealer in Las Vegas. I was able to find some common ground to talk about. By looking at, and talking with Charlie, it was obvious he did not have a life-giving relationship with Jesus. I felt compelled to ask him, “Can I pray for you, Charlie?”

“I guess, I don’t know why I should say, ‘No.’”

Charlie couldn’t hear very well, and I kept being prompted by the Holy Spirit to “stand in the gap,” and say the sinner’s prayer for Charlie. I said the sinner’s prayer with Charlie listening, as if I was Charlie.

I prayed for Charlie saying, “Dear Lord, please forgive me of my sins. Please come into my heart, and be Lord of my life. I choose you as my personal Lord and Savior. In the name of Jesus, Amen.”

I didn’t observe any noticeable changes in Charlie, other than he was very grateful I talked with him. I don’t remember having ever prayed for anybody in this manner before. Did Charlie just now get saved? Honestly, I don’t know. Usually I will have the person repeat the sinner’s prayer after me. In this case, I said the sinner’s prayer for Charlie while he witnessed. What I do know though, God is so gracious, and I would not be surprised if I saw Charlie in Heaven someday.

Lord, thank you for your great grace. You are so wonderful. Please deepen our relationship with You. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
