Frontline Chronicles :: March, 2018 :: Ministry in Mexico :: Nathan & Dawn Pietsch

By Nathan D. Pietsch

After 43 days in Africa, I got to enjoy three days in the USA before heading to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for ministry. On one ministry outing, Dawn and I got to minister at an orphanage. I shared the "Jonah Story," about being able to praise the Lord in any situation, like Jonah did in the belly of the great fish. I also had the children stand in front of their peers and preach a one minute message on their favorite Bible verse. People are never too young to start in ministry. It was impactful for them.

We have also been able to preach in churches and conduct equipping workshops. The people have responded very well. We have more revival workshops planned. We are also hoping to organize ministry in the federal prison as well as conduct Evangelism Gospel Crusades. This area desperately needs a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

The doors are slowly opening for Dawn and I here in Mexico. It has been much harder then expected. In the current condition, there is a lot of division in the local churches. This makes it really difficult to organize events and cross pollinate the churches. Many of the pastors here have also been damaged by missionaries. This has made them skeptical towards Dawn and I. Fortunately, we are getting breakthrough though.

Please keep us in prayer as we are hoping to see God do a wonderful work in Cabo San Lucas and beyond.

Rich Versus Poor

By Dawn R. Pietsch

As we came to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in February, we noticed a huge parallel difference between the rich and the poor. One side is in extreme poverty, and the other side has the extreme rich with beautiful resorts. We saw the servants, and those who want to be catered too. The uneducated and the educated.

In the Bible, Jesus said there would always be the poor (Matthew 26:11), which is sad to hear. It's a poverty mindset that holds the people in bondage, and from receiving kingdom principles, and a kingdom mindset. There is no poverty in Heaven, therefore there should be no poverty on earth. There should be no partiality as well, preferring one race more than another, and the rich more than the poor. Once again it's our mindset that sets us apart.

Frontline Chronicles :: February, 2018 :: Supernatural Gospel Crusade in Kenya :: Nathan & Dawn Pietsch

By Nathan D. Pietsch

After 35-days in Nigeria, I flew to Kenya to preach at the Supernatural Gospel Crusade as the main speaker. We ventured 14-hours by car from Nairobi into a remote village in western Kenya. Over the course of the three night event, thousands of people attended to encounter the Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit.

Hundreds were physically healed, were delivered of demonic influences, rededicated their lives to the Lord, or received salvation by accepting Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. One man testified that his severe back pain due to kidney stones disappeared when I commanded kidney stones to dissolve in the name of Jesus.

Africa is also a place of great spiritual warfare. A 19-year old woman shared her testimony of what God did in her life during this crusade. She informed us she grew up as an orphan. After sometime she was brought into a home where the people operated in high levels of witchcraft. As a result of her bondage, demons would physically visit and torture her.

This woman saw the poster advertising the Supernatural Gospel Crusade. The demons commanded her to go and disrupt the meetings. However, the Heavenly Father had other plans. God “arrested” her while I was praying for the people. She manifested demons, in which I cast out in the name of Jesus. She had hoards of evil influences that left her. She then dedicated her life to the Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit.

What is Your Filter?

By Dawn R. Pietsch

What is your filter? Whom do you use to run things by? The father of lies, who came to steal, kill, and destroy... or... The Spirit of Truth, which is the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, and Father God... who cannot tell a lie, and Jesus... who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life... who came to bring Life, and that more abundantly! Looking at it this way, it's a no brainer! Why would you want a filter of lies, when you could have truth? Everything that is going on in this world needs to be run through the filter of the Lord, otherwise it needs to be thrown out!

We operate by faith in a God who knows all things, sees all things, and has the power to do all things! Nothing is impossible with God!!! We must trust in Him by faith. It's our faith that pleases Him anyways! Our hope must be in Him... and His hope is a for sure thing! So next time your being bombarded with worldly issues, remember that the Lord is your filter, the living, breathing Word of God!
