“I want you to go to a town in the Northwest corner of Italy near the border of France”
This is what I (Yvonne) heard in my spirit. I immediately said yes, did some research but I didn’t seem to find “the town” so I set it aside. However the impressions grew in intensity. I “happened” to read Peter Wagner’s Queen’s Domain book during this time and I began to understand the significance of what was happening throughout Europe. And in June, I even found another prayer journey companion – while at Glory of Zion in TX on the last day of the Pentecost Celebration Conference, I become re-acquainted with Stephanie, an elder, now pastor, that I knew over 24 years ago. Upon mentioning this impression from the Lord, she immediately said “I believe I am to go with you”. But where was that exactly?

In planning our Outreaches in the summer of 2014, we wanted to impact every socio-economic strata and every cultural mountain of influence. That June, we had conducted a Strategic Prayer Outing to UNC Charlotte to support our outreach in North Charlotte as historically that community had been the industrial and business section of the city. (UNC Charlotte is a heavy producer of new business talent for our region and the University area itself now hosts several major companies in several business and industry parks.)
Recently, during the Month of Av, the month when Israel listened to the report of the 10 spies and did not enter into the Promised Land, many decrees went forth about reversing the curse, redeeming the time and possessing our inheritance. So my ears were quickened when Lisa, RHM Strategic Prayer Outing Co-Leader, came across a word released by Doug Addison about Restoring Our Lost Inheritances which specifically mentioned NC – that is Moravian Falls, NC – see excerpt below:
A Cowboy Comes Home
I had a prophetic dream where I was standing in one of the geographic places where God is restoring the original calling. It looked like Moravian Falls, North Carolina. A man dressed like a cowboy came walking in with a milk cow. The cow had a blue blanket over it.Continue reading Moravian Falls – September 2014→
We greeted the community on behalf of a Son who loved His Father enough to give Him the gift of many sons and many daughters through His sacrifice on the cross. We shouted out John 3:16: For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. We welcomed the Son to be with us by His Spirit.
The Queens Mini Mart is known in the neighborhood as being a drug dealer hang out and several women who attend the church up the street say that they walk several blocks out of their way to avoid coming past this store. We chose to have an Outreach at this location because back in December the brother-in-law of the mayor of Columbia, SC was shot and killed execution style right there in the parking lot in the middle of a weekday afternoon. In fact, over the past few years, several young men have been killed at or near this location.
This outreach had been caught up in a whirlwind of spiritual warfare over several weeks -from the permit, to sound, to tables & chairs, to barricades, to the weather, and through personal challenges experienced by many on the team – but the Lord prevailed!!
We entered in on behalf of North Charlotte by decreeing that we are not orphans and that we are not forgotten; that through faith in Jesus Christ, we are sons of God. And if sons, then we are led by Holy Spirit. So we sought through worship, testimony and ministry to introduce/re-introduce Holy Spirit, the One who came in like a mighty rushing wind on the Day of Pentecost, the One who is the seven-fold Spirit of God: The Spirit of the Lord, The Spirit of Jesus, and The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord. And from Isaiah 61, we prophesied that He is The One who had anointed us to bring good news and comfort to North Charlotte, to bind up the brokenhearted and to give beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for heaviness, and to call forth this community, to those who would believe, as oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord.

What an amazing time – with a core team of wonderful volunteers, youth ministries, local churches and even a cartoon character, the atmosphere of heaven was recreated right there in the midst of Dillehay Courts through love, worship, testimony, and joy! This community also received a free lunch and giveaways for the children donated by a multitude of supporters. The children’s sock giveaways were anointed in prayer by faith for the new path now set for their generation.
Happy New Year & Happy Independence Day! Whom the Son has set free is free indeed!
While in final planning for the trip, I (Yvonne) strongly felt impressed by Holy Spirit to stay until January 1st even though the lead team from MHJ Missions was returning home on December 31st. I first thought it was because of the civil new year but then I discovered just before departing Charlotte that January 1 was the day that Haiti was birthed as an independent nation. And another prophetess had given me this word just a few days prior: “God has given you governmental authority; He is sending you there to uproot an old tree, something that has been in the ground for a long time”.Continue reading Mission Haiti -December 2013→
The Birthplace of Our Nation: Worship, Equipping & Strategic Prayer Outing
Worship, Prayer, Equipping Gathering for First Love Ministries
“Holy are You Lord!”
We started the night thanking the Lord in song and then entered into a prophetic worshipful decree of “Holy are You Lord!” as the two worship teams present converged and pressed into His glory. As the rhythm of worship crested we stepped under His Banner and declared Jesus Lord over the region. We asked Holy Spirit to hover over the city, over its people, its churches, its communities.
