  1. Thank you for posting these videos! Praise the Lord for this couple and their standing in the church in Brussels. May the Lord strengthen all the saints there!

  2. Praise the Lord! It is really a great thing to cooperate with the Lord in His current move on this earth. May the Lord continue to raise up some saints to respond to this migration work. Keep on enjoying Christ, Cayfords, as a testimony there in Europe. Amen!

  3. Amen to doing nothing, but simply being.
    That has been my impression as I have visited different saints in Europe. Outwardly they’re not doing much, just going about their daily living; working, studying, raising children, etc. But inwardly there is such a sense of their purpose, and the weight in the Lord’s eyes of their being there.
    On a recent trip, my husband and I were deeply impressed by the Lord’s heart for Europe. Though we felt very insignificant and were not doing anything outwardly, it seemed to matter very much to the Lord that we were there. It seemed to be His question, “Wouldn’t you come and be here, just be here for Me?”
    Amen, Lord gain many of us to go and be Your living again in Europe…

  4. Did they really complete a Master’s degree and a Doctorate degree in just a few years? If so, that is really fast. I’m glad that they could be an answer to someone’s prayers. I pray for this: that the Lord Jesus would raise up more faithful, equipped laborers for the harvest, the Lord Jesus would increase our numbers with overcomers like a flock, that the Lord Jesus would protect them too.

  5. I like your statement Michelle, that “…finally my being in the church life has a purpose.” When a group of us migrated to South America I think I had the thought that we were going to do a lot of gospel preaching and raising up of churches. After being in São Paulo for two and half years I realized that what the Lord has done the most is shepherd the existing saints through our experiences. The care that I received through the normal ‘pipeline’experience in the church life, was something I took for granted. Now as we are with these saints/new ones/recovered ones, I’m seeing that all they need is patterns of normal functioning members in the Body.

    These experiences remind me of this portion in the Life Study of Mark Chapter 18:
    We have seen that all those in the Lord’s recovery should go forth to preach the gospel, present the truth, and minister life…

    …Many of our fellow Christians are spiritually sick because of the lack of nourishment. How can we nourish them? The best way to nourish them is to give them a testimony of our experience of Christ. A genuine testimony of our spiritual experience will be the best food.

    Our testifying to others is also our anointing of them. The real need today is not the outward laying on of hands, as practiced among many in the charismatic or Pentecostal movement. The need is for us to testify of our experience of Christ. You may testify how you have been saved and captured by the Lord, how the Lord satisfies you, and how you experience and enjoy Him day by day. Through this kind of testimony others will receive a rich anointing. Through this anointing they will be nourished and healed in a spiritual way. Therefore, to minister life to others is to nourish them and anoint them with our testimony.

    I thank the Lord that my small portion and limited experience can be broken, blessed, and multiplied here in Brazil. This has made me feel very useful and thankful for what I received growing up in the church life.

  6. Continue steadfastly. But rise up and stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to appoint you as a minister and a witness both of the things in which you have seen Me and of the things in which I will appear to you.Acts26:16 “I will make you a witness of what you have seen.”

  7. Recently the Lord has touched me, as one who also migrated to Europe for His move, that He doesn’t want us to be or do anything special here but just to be normal. Be normal enjoyers, normal lovers of the Lord, in and following the fellowship of the Body, shepherding others and living Christ.

    This is the pattern and living that the people in Europe want to see. Many who have read the ministry are waiting to see some live out Christ in such a way – not according to their culture or background but according to the real living One within them. This normal living is a “real miracle”.

    As Tim and Michelle shared, your Christ will be drawn out to supply so many saints and new ones if you are willing to give yourself to come to Europe and “do nothing” for the Lord’s sake.

  8. Hallelujah for the church life. I really enjoyed your testimony because it is exactly the same experience for my husband and I and our daughters since our most recent move north west of the U.S.A. May the Lord continue to build his body of believers.
