Dawn and I teamed up with a church to carry the Gospel of Jesus Christ onto the streets in the midst of the revelries of Mardi Gras. If you want to see miracles, it is in these types of party atmospheres where God shows up powerfully. We had many amazing experiences seeing God move.

In one instance, a man got totally healed of major shoulder pain. He was unable to raise his arm. Dawn helped pray and the man began to raise his arm over his head without pain. Two drunk guys witnessed the miracle. When they saw we had done this in the name of Jesus they began to swear at us and commanded us to leave.

In another situation the Lord highlighted a woman for us to speak with. The Lord revealed to us through the spiritual gift of a word of knowledge (1 Corinthians 12:8) that she was a powerful prayer warrior. We spoke to her and she began to weep like a baby. She then said to us, “It’s true, but I’m backslidden right now. I’ve walked away from God.” We prayed for complete restoration in her relationship with God, and she received it.

Throughout the several outreaches we did during this time, we introduced a number of people to Jesus by leading them through the sinner’s prayer. Other people were very blessed when we gave prophetic words of encouragement, exhortation, and comfort (1 Corinthians 14:3). Others also received physical healing from tormenting pain and demonic spirits. It was a great time for God’s glory.

Nathan also preached again in a church in Mississippi. He shared on how to receive immediate breakthrough by prophetic intercessory prayer. He helped activate the group on how to hear and see what the Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit are doing in the Heavenly realm. Many people had clear visions in the Spirit. The people then made declaration prayers to bring about major shifts in the spiritual atmosphere. You can watch the teaching and activation session on YouTube under the title: Prophetic Prayer Brings Breakthrough :: Preaching Message by Nathan Pietsch.

You can also watch the video entitled, Prayer to Break Strongholds and Release Destiny. This video contains footage of Nathan praying declaration breakthrough prayers to a group of people at a church. You can also enter into the realm of the supernatural and connect with the Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit. As Nathan prays:
  • feel chains of depression shatter
  • see prodigals coming home
  • be healed of heart issues
  • receive a fresh in-filling of God's holy fire
In addition to preaching inside the church walls, Nathan and Dawn went onto the streets of New Orleans in the French Quarter to share the love of Jesus while speaking on a portable sound system. While Nathan spoke, a woman approached and said, “I have a demon! I want to be free of it!” The woman ended up having many demons, and she began to manifest them while Nathan and Dawn prayed for her. The following YouTube video entitled, I Want to Be Free of This Demon! :: Nathan and Dawn Pietsch records the event.

The Saints of New Orleans

By Dawn R. Pietsch

We were sent on a great adventure to New Orleans shortly after Nathan returned from Africa. Upon arriving we were quickly embraced by the "Saints of New Orleans," and I'm not talking about the football team! The saints are the body of Christ here in New Orleans.

They daily endure the obstacles, unholy festivals, and crime that is here. However, they arise in worship, good works, and salvations! God's light is always greater than the present darkness! It's a bit like the New Testament people who furthered the Gospel of Jesus Christ, though endured hardship, they still preached Jesus as the truth, way, and life!
