2017 in Review

Dawn and I started the year of 2017 in the beautiful state of Oregon. However, we quickly traveled to Los Angeles, CA so I could fly to Africa. I spent a total of one month in the countries of Nigeria and Kenya. It was an amazing time of ministry where people received healing, deliverance, and salvation. After my return to the USA, my time in the states did not last long. I went back to Nigeria in May for more ministry. During this time, I also went to London, England for a "special assignment" from the Lord.

In early August, Dawn and I departed for Switzerland for three months. While in Switzerland, we were also able to minister in the countries of Liechtenstein, Austria, Germany, and France. It was a very powerful time with God. We were able to start a prayer group, teach weekly revival workshops, preach in churches, and perform one-on-one prayer sessions. God did a wonderful work in the people there and will continue to grow them.

The year of 2018 also looks very exciting. I am planning my third trip to Africa to preach at revival crusades. Dawn and I are also praying about going to Mexico for a season and also back to Europe. God is moving very powerfully all over the world. Dawn and I want to be apart of what God is doing.

Please keep us in your prayers as we are in constant warfare being missionaries on the frontlines. We want to thank you so much for your support and all you do. Lots of love from, Nathan and Dawn.

My Recap of 2017

This year was a lot about adventure... Traveling from Oregon to Southern California three times, through snow and blizzards, rain and flooding, fire and wind... and God was in the midst of it all. He is so faithful to cover you, protect you, and provide for you through it all. But our biggest adventure was Nathan taking two trips to Africa, and our trip to Switzerland, Austria, Liechtenstein, Germany, and France. What a great year of fun and adventure!

We had the best ever ministry times, as we ministered to so many people through seminars, workshops, and one-on-one prayer appointments. Seeing people arising into who they really are as children of God, with all the wonderful benefits of belonging to Him was so exciting! And the most exciting thing was to see God's revival all over the world!

You don't hear about that on the news, but it's true! All of creation is waiting for the sons and daughters of God to arise! Salvation is everywhere, and the Kingdom of God will be so full of His kids!

Thank you so much for all of your support, through prayer and gifts, encouragement and Love! We love each and every one of you! Thank you and God bless you abundantly,
Love, Dawn

Frontlines :: November, 2017 :: Have You Lost Your Voice? :: Nathan & Dawn Pietsch

By Nathan D. Pietsch

Have You Lost Your Voice?

Dawn and I had the opportunity to pray for a man in a personal one-on-one session. His name is "Jack," and is probably in his sixties. We had met him a few times in the past, and quickly noticed he rarely spoke. It is not that he is unintelligent, but it was clear something was not right. When Dawn and I began to ask the Lord about his spiritual gifts and ministry call on his life, we were amazed at what God revealed. We discovered he has a very strong spiritual gift of prophecy. (See 1 Corinthians 12:7-11.)

A person who operates in the spiritual gift of prophecy usually has a lot of authority in the spirit realm when they speak. Think of Elijah the Prophet in the Bible. In 1 Kings 17:1 the scriptures say, "Elijah... said to Ahab, 'As the Lord God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, except at my word.'" So, what was the problem with Jack?

As we continued to pray for him, he revealed that in 1973 he had a conflict with his church. He shared something publicly to the congregation, and it was not received. After that moment, he made an inner vow not to speak to groups again. As a result, he rarely talked to anybody. It became clear the enemy was successful at keeping this man's spiritual gift of prophecy silent for over four decades. As soon as we broke this off in the spirit, he began to speak to Dawn and I like a new person. If the enemy has "stolen your voice," repent of sins, be washed in the blood of Jesus, and get your voice back in Jesus' name.

Speak Forth Truth

It's such an amazing time of the year! With all the trees showing their fall colors, we are reminded of how we too can show signs of a changing season in our lives. By choosing too, "Lay aside those things that weigh us down, things that easily entangle us into sin," as in (Hebrews 12:1). Releasing forgiveness, and uprooting the bitterness. Showing kindness in replace of meanness, generosity instead of selfishness, and love... it replaces all things. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:16, "Look to no man unto the flesh." Meaning, that when we see unbecoming things in people, we are to look past them, and see the gold in people, the things that God says are amazing in them.

We can take it even farther, into the intercessors realm by praying for them as well. Not in a powerless, "poor me, can you help them God" prayers, but in powerful declarations, speaking forth truth! In Romans 4:17, the Bible says, "to speak to the things that are not as though they were!" Calling forth destiny and purpose in people, means to look at the situation, hear from God what He says, and declare it! Like speaking the opposite of a negative behavior! This can change lives for the better! By declaring things, it will be established for you (Job 22:28). Therefore, what's this there for... to make sure what your speaking is edifying, and of a good reputation. This world would be a much better place for all of us, if we just followed these amazing principles and practiced them daily.

Frontlines :: October, 2017 :: Switzerland to USA :: Nathan & Dawn Pietsch

By Nathan D. Pietsch

We have now finished our three month ministry tour in Europe. We were able to see Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria, Germany, and France. Our time has ended, but Dawn and I were not ready to leave. We really enjoyed the people, the ministry, and all that God was doing. We thought our very intense ministry schedule would lighten, but it actually increased. There were so many more things we wanted to do. I also have two good friends elsewhere in Switzerland I wanted to see, and some in France, but we were unable to make those trips.

While in Europe, our weeks were filled with preaching in churches, leading seminars and workshops, and praying for people in one-on-one appointments. God moved in very powerful ways. Many people received emotional and physical healing along with deliverance. We have now made so many friends in Europe, it was hard to leave. We would like to come back in the future and continue helping in this great revival that has begun.

As we readjust to life in the United States, we begin a new season of ministry. We are very excited to see what God will do. We know God will continue to move powerfully because the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 4:20, “The kingdom of God is not in word but in power.” God is encountering people across the globe and drawing hearts to Himself. It is marvelous to see, and even better to be in the middle of it.

An End of an Amazing Season

Our time in Switzerland has come to an end for now. It was very sad to leave Europe. We felt so at home here. We have made many friends, enjoyed lots of fun adventures like touring Switzerland, Austria, Germany, France, and Liechtenstein. We have been in awe of the beauty of Gods creation! As it turns out, some of my family generations have lived in the areas that we visited. Isn't God amazing that he brings you back to your own heritage to walk the lands that they once did? It actually felt very normal to be here.

The ministry time that we had here was the most amazing ever, seeing people arising into there God given destiny and purpose is the most gratifying feeling. It was so wonderful to see transformation in the people from the home group we led, the workshops we taught, and one-on-one prayer session. We give God the Glory for His incredible work! We have been so blessed to be here, and we thank everyone who made it possible. Vielen Dank!
