This morning I am scheduled to return to the pulpit (during our vacation) but the Lord compelled me to write and give you a word that He gave me concerning you in a dream on 7/14 while in Charleston, SC during our family reunion with Pastor Brenda's portion of our


I awoke early in the morning about 2:50am after the following dream:

Brenda and I went to a large church to minister. (However, I didn't recognize the city or building.) We returned later after a short break following the benediction and was asked by an elderly lady for prayer for the healing of someone she knew that was present in the audience/congregation.

What followed seemed a bit strange, but I was led to a person that was in a very large box which was in a wheelchair. I had to push the person who was in the large container/box to a vehicle/van. While doing this I was praying. I did not know who was in the box.

When I got to the car, I had to lift this person while still in the box and help place it and him/her in the vehicle. As I did this I began to speak Holy Spirit prompted exhortations to the person. The only exhortations I remember are:

After giving this word, I opened a flap that was on the side of the box to see the person in side. (I had been praying and speaking the exhortations through this opening.)

At first all I could see was that the person was a man. After I spoke these words light came in and I noticed that it was you Chris. You were sitting in a black Nehru type of suit with a white ban shirt or clergy collar. You were smiling and you looked very rested and about five or ten years younger.

I don't know how you looked before the prayer but I kept hearing also: "Three days . . . in three days." Then I was reminded of the story of Lazarus. Simultaneously, I was awakened.

I don't know what all of this means. However, the Lord assured me in prayer that HE would be doing the miraculous in your lives during this season of your (you and Carol's) personal development and life's work and that you are to trust HIM completely.

Many great things are going to happen. I know that it has been hard. But, don't dwell negatively on the past. As always, learn from it and move on wisely and lovingly. l This is a new season. God will defend you and uphold you in your integrity. Tremendous increase is coming in this season. Remember to intentionally and deliberately give HIM all the glory!!! Stay focused and on point through prayer and obedience.

This is a season of tremendous fulfillment in your lives and the lives of those you
lead and even for the city Harrisburg and region.

I am led of the Spirit to end this exhortation with this word from 2nd Corinthians 1:20 For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. 21Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God,
22 who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee. 23Moreover I call God as witness against my soul, that to spare you I came no more to Corinth. 24 Not that we have dominion over your faith, but are fellow workers for your joy; for by faith you stand.

May the Lord God Bless You, your family (here and there) and the entire congregation and related ministries of Fruitful Life. May the Lord bless Harrisburg to see and embrace it's providential destiny in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever.
Amen. (Ephesians 3:20-21)

Love to All.

Grace & Peace,

Carol and I are pleased to announce that we have a new meeting
facility. Starting this Saturday evening, we will begin meeting on
the West Shore at the Holiday Inn WEST. It's in a great location on
Carlisle Pike, sitting between HWY 81 and 581. It's in a location
where everyone and anyone can get to it easily. There are stores,
restaurants, and shopping malls all around us.

We are in the BEST location, you could possibly think of, for
launching a new ministry. The hotel actually houses several
ballrooms, conference rooms, and even a night club.

The nightclub is very popular with the 20's and 30's generation. In
fact we'll be meeting directly over the night club each week. We'll
be wrapping up our meetings around 8:00-8:30pm and we understand the
night club gets going around 9:00-9:30pm. It's a perfect set up for
outreach and ministry for us. God has set us up in the most wonderful
and amazing way.

We have been received by the hotel staff with the utmost in grace
and favor. I cannot explain how much favor God has given us there.
They have been abundantly pleasant toward us. They have given us "red
carpet" treatment, offering a choice of rooms and meeting times. They
didn't even ask for a deposit. They just asked for our credit card to
hold the reservation each week. They have even given us a 3 month
contract as a trial run, so that WE can determine if this will work
out for us.

We have never been shown so much hospitality from the business
community since we moved here. We have finally found the right place,
the right people, and the right time to release FRUITFUL LIFE into
this region.

It's been a long journey, but hey y'all, "WE'RE BAAACK!"

We look forward to this Saturday.
We will get started at 6:30PM as usual.

WE WILL NOT MEET FOR PRAYER ON WEDNESDAY EVENINGS, UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. In the meantime, we will start having prayer at 5:30pm at
the hotel, one hour before our start time.

We look forward to what God is going to do in this NEW MOVE OF GOD!
