RHM went to Greensboro back in February to release Worship & Prayer in Guilford County as a part of our “Go County to County” mandate from the Lord. We also were blessed to equip others from Greensboro as well as New Jersey and South Carolina in apostolic and prophetic intercession.
Lou Engle and The Callare hosting an Azusa East Awakening Gathering/Encounter in Charlotte in 2018. Lou mentioned stepping into the mantle of Billy Graham. As I am sure for many of us who live in the Charlotte Metro Region, this is an answer to prayer.
We searched and searched our area’s event pages looking to participate in something that would honor our military during Memorial Day weekend. And alas, what we found were fun family days – carnivals, fairs, cookouts – so we decided to do something.
Freedom Isn’t Free – May We Never Forget!
Our team gathered on Memorial Day at St. Mary’s Chapel in Charlotte as it shared location with the Mecklenburg County Vietnam Veterans Memorial and we offered up worship to our Lord and prayers for all those who served, especially those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in all wars and during peace times, and for their precious families.
A Land of Generosity, Hospitality and Entrepreneurship
First these blessings flowed through the Cherokees to a settler named Richard Pearis – around 1770, he married a Cherokee woman and received 100,000 acres in the once-forbidden Cherokee Hunting Ground. In that land Pearis established a plantation on the Reedy River which is now downtown Greenville and built a couple of mills and a trading post – it is said he lived the life of a prince.
After the Revolutionary War, portions of the land changed hands a couple of times until 1815 when it was sold to Vardry McBee of Lincolnton, NC who became known as the father of Greenville. Although McBee was an absentee landlord, he understood how to grow a community. “He gave land for the first schools (the Greenville Male and Female Academies), for the first four churches (Episcopal, Baptist, Methodist and Presbyterian), and he established a brick yard, rock quarry, and saw mill, in addition to corn and grist mills, a tannery, and a large general store. Seven miles south of town he built a paper factory and cotton and woolen mills. Alston’s former home became a boarding house for the summer visitors who were making the little village a summer resort.” (Excerpt from Greenville SC.gov)
Praying for our Eastern Seaboard – He Trains Our Hands for War!
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Harriet Tubman, Haitian Soldiers & The Marines…
We ventured down to the Sea Isles of Beaufort County on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday celebration weekend to a region we found out that Dr. King actually frequented to both rest and strategize with his team during the Civil Rights Movement. One of our main intents that weekend was to pray for protection over our Eastern seaboard. There had already been an unctioning to do so; and then different prophetic voices warned of possible trouble coming through our Carolinian Coastal Cities.
Rolling on The River: Decreeing Healing & Restoration to The Catawba River!
As a follow-up to our Staking Our Future Worship & Prayer Gathering held in Gaston County where we focused on the endangered Catawba River, we decided to pray for the River while on the River. The Lord pointed us towards Lake Norman, the closest head water in our area, where the River takes a turn South from its origin in Western NC (Blue Ridge Mountains). Lake Norman is the largest man-made lake off the River and is home to three different types of dams. Continue reading December 2015 – Lake Norman and The Catawba River→
High Level Assignments: Will these dry bones live?
Covenant Root in Virginia – Rev. Robert Hunt
Back in October while planning a Thanksgiving getaway, I (Yvonne) felt a quickening about visiting Virginia Beach. In 2007, eight years prior, having arrived early in Virginia Beach for a prophetic conference (for which I felt a similar unctioning to attend), I was getting ready to walk the beach with a friend when a pastor stopped to tell us about Rev. Robert Hunt (an Anglican minister who was commissioned under the Virginia Charter to evangelize the land that stretched from South Carolina to Maine and far to the west) and how close we were to the First Landing where Rev. Hunt, after first making the crew stay on board for three days of fasting and praying, planted a wooden cross on those shores and dedicated this nation to the Lord. In his prayers, Rev. Hunt decreed that the gospel would not only be preached in this new land but would also go out from those shores to all of the nations of the world.
Carrboro (Orange County) – A former Sanctuary City
Lisa Flynn, our Strategic Prayer Outing Leader, had been concerned for several months about Sanctuary Cities in America and their violation of Federal Immigration laws. My immediate response was to make sure that we prayed the Lord’s heart towards refugees fleeing religious persecution and that our prayers completely lined up with Scripture. But, although on the surface Sanctuary Cities sounded like the Cities of Refuge found in the Word of God, further discussion and research unveiled that they were quite a different matter altogether.

After six months of work and many signs of favor, the day for the Outreach in Union County had finally arrived. The Outreach was designed to just be a launching point for follow-up work in the community that would be done by several churches and ministries.
