Crosscountry4Jesus' Newsletter June-November,2001
Praise the Lord, my precious brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ! I hope this finds you all well and being blessed! We in the Rowe Tribe are all well and blessed!
I FIGURED IT IS ABOUT TIME THAT I GIVE YOU AN UPDATE ON WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH US…
THE REASON I HAVEN'T WIRITTEN LATELY ISN'T BECAUSE NOTHING HAS HAPPENED...TO THE CONTRARY, A LOT HAS BEEN HAPPENING, AND I JUST HAVEN'T GOTTEN AROUND TO PUTTING A NEWSLETTER TOGETHER! I KNOW MY NEWLETTERS ARE USUALLY LIKE A MINI BOOK, AND IF I TOOK THE TIME TO UPDATE YOU AS TO ALL THAT HAS HAPPENED SINCE THE LAST NEWSLETTER, YOU WOULD REALLY GET A BOOK IN THE MAIL.
SINCE EASTER, WE HAVE BEEN IN SOUTH LOUIISANA, WHERE THE CRAWFISH, SHRIMP, JAMBALAYA, GUMBO AND WONDERFUL CAJUN HOSPITALITY ARE IN GREAT ABUNDANCE!
AFTER OUR WONDERFUL TIME IN ELKHART, INDIANA, REENACTING THE CRUCIFIXION OF OUR LORD, we came down to South Louisiana, and got to work with our precious brothers and sisters here.
IN JULY, I was privileged to work the grounds of the Houma Freedom fest; a wonderful three- day 4th of July celebration of the freedom that is in Jesus Christ, that Pastor Jules Bouquet of Harvest Christian Cathedral has held for the last 15 or 16 years. It is the only big celebration of it's kind in South Louisiana, and people from all over come to partake of the festival.
There are rides there, and excellent food, that people gather to partake in, but the WONDERFUL thing is that it is a Christian atmosphere! No drinking on the grounds, which is a stark contrast to the Catholic festivals down here, where drinking and gambling and worldly music are opened up for the people who come to partake of the festivities.
Mardi Gras is the biggest Catholic festival, where Catholics are encouraged to gather to spend a month of riotous living, sin, and general overindulgence before Lent, a period of self denial where devout Catholics decide to fast from something for a period before Easter.
Pastor Jules had two stages, where the gospel was being preached in word, in song, in testimonies, and in drama all the while that the festival was going on!
I had the privelege of heading up a small army of about 20 to 30 youth from Cornerstone and River of Life churches in Morgan City on one of those nights. It is a blessing to see youth so focused and on fire for the Lord, wanting to see people come to Jesus.
Charlie Plaisance and My Brother's Keeper group also were there, praying with people to receive Jesus as the Lord of their lives, and ministering to them as the Holy Spirit led. I prayed with many people to receive Jesus Christ in their hearts, as did the other laborers there as well.
PLEASE PRAY THE LORD WOULD PROVIDE ALL THE RESOURCES FOR NEXT YEAR'S OUTREACH, AND THAT THE LORD WOULD POUR OUT HIS BLESSINGS ON PASTOR JULES AND HIS LOVELY WIFE AND HELPMEET, SISTER DEBORAH, AS THEY ENDEAVOR TO REACH SOULS FOR THE GLORY OF GOD!
At the end of July, Pastor Brad Collins of Raceland Assembly of God organized a three day outreach at the Tarpon Rodeo in Grand Isle. It's called a Rodeo, but no one rides bucking tarpons...a tarpon is a fish, and in other parts of the world, this event would be called a Tarpon fishing derby.
Brian O'Connell and I parked Brian's trailer at Pastor Audie Crochet's house on the Island, and did outreach from there.
PLEASE PRAY THAT THE LORD WOULD BLESS BROTHER AUDIE AND HIS FAMILY AS THEY SEEK TO ESTABLISH THE KINGDOM OF GOD IN GRAND ISLE.
ALSO, PLEASE PRAY FOR BROTHER BRAD COLLINS AND HIS LOVELY WIFE, MICHELLE, AS THEY MINISTER THE WORD OF GOD IN RACELAND, THAT THE LORD WOULD BLESS THEM ABUNDANTLY ACCORDING TO HIS RICHES IN GLORY. THESEPEOPLE WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THEIR AREA.
The Tarpon Rodeo has a reputation of being a big drunken party. The Lord had me doing some spiritual warfare a month prior to the Rodeo, prayer walking through the towns that surrounded bayou Lafourche, where Grand Isle is located. I spent a considerable amount of time in Thibadaux, Houma, Raceland, and finally, Boutte. These would be the cities that were situated as “gates” to the Bayou. A lot of wonderful things happened as I carried the cross
CHARLIE PLAISANCE, and Frances Lovell both came down to minister with us at Grand Isle.
PLEASE KEEP CHARLIE AND HIS FAMILY IN PRAYER AS THEY ENDEAVOR TO FURTHER THE KINGDOM OF GOD IN THEIR AREA, THAT THE LORD WOULD POUR OUT HIS BLESSINGS ON THEM.
ALSO, PRAY THAT THE LORD WOULD BLESS BROTHER FRANCIS AS HE SERVES THE LORD...THIS BROTHER HAS A WONDERFUL SERVANT'S HEART, AND IT HAS BEEN A BLESSING TO WORK WITH HIM.
ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS of the Tarpon Rodeo was the second night when the Testimony Band played beneath the gospel tent.
After their first set, we all noticed a perfectly formed cross in the sky...it looked like two jet trails had intersected each other, and formed a cross… the awesome thing about it was that all you could see was the cross...there were no places where you could see any other parts of the jet trail. You simply saw a cross in the sky, and the size proportions were perfect as well. I believe the Lord was smiling at His children's efforts to bring His Light to a place where darkness has reigned. SATAN CANNOT PREVAIL, IF THE PEOPLE OF GOD SET THEIR MIND TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Please pray for George and Lawri of the Testimony band, that the Lord would bless them with sure direction as to their ministry. They have a wonderful gift, but they are seeking the Lord as to His Will for them. George needs a healing touch from the Lord for his back. Also pray for Junior and Rosalie...their house burned down a short while ago, and they lost three sons in the fire.. They need strength and direction as well.
In September, Brian, Francis, Sheryl Clavio, and I went up to Morgan City to minister at the Shrimp and Petroleum Festival, another three day event that needs Jesus Christ to be lifted up during the festivities. We were blessed to work with Steve and Mary Bell.
They have a coffee house in Morgan City, and their desire is simply to win souls to the Lord. Their son Jesse is a good friend of our Elijah's, so the family also came with us to Morgan City. Talitha and Feather joined us on the streets as we witnessed to many souls. It's always a blessing when my children join me in outreach.
One person who gave his heart to Jesus was Linh Nguyen. He owns a shrimp company, and I was privileged to pray with him to receive Jesus, and everyday that I was in town, I would visit him at his company. We all watched the fireworks from one of his boats, and he asked us to pray a blessing on his boats, which we did.
The last day, Linh blessed us with a cooler full of shrimp. HUGE shrimp at that! Ever since we were in Port Arthur a couple of years ago, the Lord has given me a burden for the Vietnamese people. It was a blessing to see Linh pray to receive Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour.
PLEASE PRAY FOR LINH, THAT HE WOULD FIND A GOOD FELLOWSHIP, AND THAT HIS BUSINESS WOULD BE BLESSED. ALSO PLEASE PRAY FOR STEVE AND MARY BELL'S MINISTRY IN MORGAN CITY, THAT THEY WOULD SEE MANY SOULS WON TO THE LORD.
We have been blessed with some wonderful family down here...Pastor Danny Knight of Victory Life in Lockport, La was very hospitable, and allowed us to park at his church for about three months as we worked in ministry in the area.
And for the past couple of months, we have parked at New Hope World Outreach Center, in Houma, guests of Pastor Duane Davis and the church family there.
Please pray for these two pastors, that the Lord would abundantly bless them their famileis, and their ministries for their hospitality.
In addition to the outreaches at the events I have listed here, I have been carrying the cross, and for three months, every Saturday night, we were conducting a Street Church outside of a night club in Thibodaux.
We got to minister to several people there.
A couple of months ago, I was blessed to start another Brother's Keeper ministry in Houma. Brother Mark Amadee is the President, and Francis Lovell is the vice President.
Please pray that the Lord would use this group to impact Houma for Jesus Christ, and that He would give Mark and Francis wisdom in how to minister effectively on the streets.
You all know that we have been abundantly blessed with a rather large family (eight of us), and that we have been living in a wonderful 35 foot motorhome. The motorhome is a gift from God, and it serves us well as we minister in the United States… BUT I have a very extensive library, and printers and when I am studying, my stuff clutters up the motorhome so much that it would be embarrassing to Michelle to have people come into our home. We were due for more room.
Normal people build additions on their houses to accommodate a growing family...us traveling evangelists have to add to our caravan!
The Lord blessed us with the finances to purchase a 1984 diesel powered 40 foot charter bus! For the past month and a half, I have been very busy converting it into another motorhome for us. We are almost ready to embark on our new adventure. In fact, by the time you get this, we will probably be resuming our crosscountry adventure, but with a new direction. I WILL TELL YOU ABOUT THAT A LITTLE LATER.
How we got the bus is a wonderful testimony in itself… Our Father provides for the needs of His children. When there seems to be no way, He makes a way.
A PASTOR, Brother Simon Hebert, told me that he would be willing to sell it for what he owed on it...which was $3500.00. $3500.00 might as well be $35,000.00 for us! But God is able to provide. So I prayed to the Lord that if it was His Will, we would get the finances to get the bus, and I kind of left it at that.
About two months passed with no finances, but then one day, a brother blessed me with $2,000.00 to expand our living conditions.
the Lord prompted me to do something I have NEVER done before. I asked pastor Simon if it would be o.k. by him if I went to the pastor who he owed the money to, and made the offer of $1500.00 to him. He told me that he wouldn't want the pastor to think that he had put me up to that, but I assured him I would let the pastor know that it was my idea. He said if I felt led to do that, then I could.
So I went to pastor Rene' Monet, and told him what I do, that I was interested in the bus, but that I only had $1500 to offer for it, and would he accept that, and forgive the other pastor of the remaining $2000.00? This pastor didn't blink an eye. He said, “Sure, anything to further the Gospel!” Thank You, Jesus.
PLEASE PRAY FOR PASTOR RENE' MONET, WHOSE HEART IS TO DO WHAT IT TAKES TO FURTHER THE GOSPEL OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.
PLEASE PRAY FOR PASTOR SIMON HEBERT, THAT THE LORD WOULD BLESS HIS MINISTRY AS HE SEEKS TO GLORIFY THE LORD.
ALSO, PLEASE PRAY FOR ABUNDANT BLESSINGS ON THE BROTHER WHO BLESSED US FINANCIALLY. HE PROBABLY WOULDN'T WANT HIS LEFT HAND TO KNOW WHAT HIS RIGHT HAND HAS DONE, SO WE WILL KEEP HIS NAME ANONYMOUS, BUT THE LORD KNOWS WHO HE IS.
PASTOR SIMON HEBERT AND I STANDING BY OUR NEW ADDITION
Praise the Lord! This addition will help us greatly. It will be a little bit of a challenge to travel with two motorhomes and a Suburban, but typically, we only make little jumps from one town to the next, anyway.
Pastor Duane of New Hope was very gracious to allow us to hang around there while we converted it. Our neighbors, brother Wayburn Hebert and brother Mike Dupre, blessed us with a lot of building material.
Please pray for them, that the Lord would give them good health and abundant blessings, both spiritual and physical!
WE WERE ALSO BLESSED WITH A WASH MACHINE AND A DRYER by some precious brothers and sisters in the Lord. That will save us about 60-70 dollars a month! Glory!
Please pray that the Lord would abundantly bless THESE PEOPLE FOR THE BLESSING THEY WERE/ARE TO US. ALL THIS HAS BEEN IN PREPARATION FOR THE NEW ADVENTURES IN MINISTRY THAT I BELIEVE THE LORD IS LEADING US TO.
I PRAY THAT THIS WILL SERVE AS AN ENCOURAGEMENT TO YOU ALL...THE LORD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS, AND HE IS FAITHFUL TO BE ATTENTIVE TO HIS CHILDREN'S NEEDS. HE SAYS THAT AS WE SEEK FIRST HIS KINGDOM AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, THAT ALL THE THINGS YOU NEED WILL BE ADDED UNTO YOU! THE BEST PART ABOUT THIS PROMISE IS THAT IT'S TRUE!
Back around the first part of July, while we were still in Lockport, I mentioned to Michelle that I believed the Lord could be leading us to carry the cross up the Mississippi River, from the mouth (Venice, La) to the source (Itasca State Park, Minnesota). I just mentioned it to her, and then dropped it.
The next day, I told her why I thought the Lord would have me walk up the Mississippi. I explained to her that the Mississippi is a major artery going through the United States, and the things that have happened in the United States have also taken place on this river. There have been battles fought on this river. There has been commerce up and down the river. There have been missionaries who have spread the gospel up and down the river. There have been pirates, gamblers, slave traders, and prostitutes who plied their wares up and down the river.
I believe the Lord was showing me that the river is like a major artery that goes into the heart. It has been clogged by sin. Where the Mississippi flows into the Gulf of Mexico, there is an area that is called the “dead zone”. Many other rivers flow into the Mississippi, and pollutants that have been spilled into the river have caused a zone where there is very little life in that area of the Gulf of Mexico. I told her that if we went, this journey would be a prayer walk on behalf of the church and for our nation up the Mississippi.
But it was just an idea then. I wasn't sure if that was really what the Lord wanted me to do or not…
That night I went with some brothers and sisters to a church service. The brother who preached there mentioned a prophetic word that had gone forth a few years ago about a revival starting from the mouth of the Mississippi to Minneapolis. I thought that was interesting, but I didn't take it as confirmation, yet. Other than sharing it with Michelle, I didn't tell anyone about what the Lord had put on my heart.
That week, on at least 5 different occasions, I heard about that same prophetic word. NOW I WAS GETTING THE THOUGHT THAT THIS MIGHT BE THE LORD'S WILL FOR US…
But what sealed it was what happened on the first part of August.
Brian O'Connell had me drive him to the airport in New Orleans so he could fly to Orlando, and conduct a wedding over the weekend. While I was there in New Orleans, I thought I would visit some friends. I stopped by to visit Pat and Grace Chauvin, and as we were talking to one another, I mentioned the fact that the Lord was putting it in my heart to carry the cross up the Mississippi River. Grace lit up, and told me that she had just heard from someone that the Mississippi River used to be called the River of the Holy Spirit. I asked her what the source of that information was, but she couldn't remember….so I chalked it up as some interesting information.
The very next day, I was visiting Francis Lovell at his apartment. By this time, he knew that I had been considering this journey. I hadn't mentioned what Grace had said, when all of a sudden, Francis said, “Man, I have something to show you!” He produced a magazine article he had found the day before. In the upper right hand corner, there was a picture of an old map.
The article that accompanied the picture said that this was the oldest known map of the Gulf coast in existence.
A Spanish explorer named Alonzo Alverez de Pineda drew the map, and he labeled the Mississippi as “Rio del Spiritu Santo”, meaning The River of the Holy Spirit! GLORY! THAT SEALED IT… I WAS SURE OF THE LORD'S DIRECTION REGARDING OUR NEXT ADVENTURE IN MINISTRY. Now the question was “WHEN”.
SHORTLY AFTER THAT, we got our bus, and the LORD blessed us with the finances and the materials to convert it to a motorhome. It's not completely done...it will probably be an ongoing project for a couple of years, but I am sure that it will be a great help to us in our mission.
JUST ANOTHER BIT OF INFORMATION TO ADD TO OUR TESTIMONY ABOUT THIS NEW ADVENTURE:
A LITTLE OVER A MONTH AGO, Talitha and Feather had found a picture we had taken while we were in Minnesota a couple of years ago, when we had taken them to the source of the Mississippi and let our children walk across the Mississippi River. I took a picture of the historical sign there, because of a name on the sign.
On the fourth line, the man credited with discovering the source of the Mississippi, was named Henry ROWE Schoolcraft. I had forgotten all about it. Now the Lord is calling Lance Rowe to do this prayer walk to the source. GLORY!
I DON'T HAVE ANY PRECONCIEVED NOTIONS as to what is going to happen on this journey. I do believe I will be blessed with wonderful testimonies of the Lord doing wonderful things on this journey. I have built a new cross...a “ten miler”...all of my other crosses are three or four milers...at 70-100 pounds each, I can only carry them three or four miles comfortably on a day to day basis...I just built a 12 foot high cross, that I believe is light enough to carry at least 10 miles a day...THE CROSSBEAM WILL SAY “ONE NATION UNDER GOD”, AS A REMINDER OF THE CHRISTIAN PRINCIPLES OUR NATION WAS FOUNDED ON.
I wanted to begin right after the September 11th attacks, but the LORD knows the perfect time. By the time you get this, we will probably be on our journey North. I expect this journey to take at least a couple of years...once we get so far North that the winter will prohibit the walk, we will (Lord willing) continue our journey west during the winter, and in the spring, we will travel North again. There is a growing urgency to go SOON.
I sent out a message to the people who are on my e-mail list… several of you are not...so I am enclosing it here so you will have an idea of what this prayer walk is about.
...After the September 11th tragedy, the Church of Jesus Christ in America responded with calls to prayer, and seeking God in the midst of the anguish and the confusion. The Body of Christ put actions to their words, and sought ways to help in the rescue and recovery operations. Denominational differences were no longer an issue. Baptist, Pentecostal, Charismatic, Full Gospel, Methodist, Presbyterian, and Non-denominational Christians united to pray together. The Christian church in America was on the verge of a great awakening. There was some news coverage of this wondrous occasion.
But Satan doesn't sleep. Right on the heels of this Christian call to Unity, came Satan's counterfeit call to unity. Roman Catholics, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Feminists, New Agers, and Orthodox Catholics united together in Unity to pray to their respective gods, and the media publicized this Prayer meeting in great detail. Paganism in America was also on the verge of a great resurgence.
Most Christians were swept up with the counterfeit call to unity. The flag became the standard in most church services, instead of the cross.
The call to Patriotism was preached across most pulpits, instead of a call to repentance.
Concern for the economy was the issue in most prayer groups, instead of a call to seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness.
For years, Satan has hammered against the fundamentalist Christians from the pulpits of liberal churches, as well as through the media. Now he has a wonderful tool to seal his case against them.
The word “Fundamentalist” was attached to the “bad” Muslims. Most Christians want to separate themselves from the label of “Fundamentalist”. “All of a sudden the term “fundamentalist” has become synonymous with “terrorist”.
And Satan's counterfeit revival of ecumenicalism and interfaith unity has prospered, while the Christian Church in America is being lulled back into complacency and indifference.
Harry Potter, the wiccan's advocate, has more esteem in the world's eyes than Jesus Christ, the Christian's Advocate. Christians and non-Christians alike have flocked to the theaters to watch this “wonderful children's adventure”, as the witches celebrate their spiritual reemergence and acceptance by the masses.
This is a day when truly, mankind has called good evil and evil good.
The problem is that Christians in America love their things and their comfort and the things of the world more than they love God. Harry Potter fans aren't ashamed of their love of the world and their fleshly desires. Neither are most Christians in America.
We were called to be separate. Holy. We were called to come out from among them. But we have been conformed to the world, instead of transformed by the renewing of our minds. Until the church gets as fervent for Jesus as the Harry Potter fans have gotten for their pagan role model, both physical and Spiritual terrorism will continue in our country.
Those Christians who adhere to the fundamentals of Christianity are going to become even more alienated and ostracized, and one day, hunted down as well.
It's an old saying seen on many bumper stickers, but we need to ask ourselves… “If you were on trial for being a Christian, (and some day you may well be) would there be enough evidence to convict you?”
We need to start living like we are children of the Most High God. The child reflects his or her parents. How concerned are we that souls be brought out of darkness into the light of Jesus christ? How concerned are we about our unsaved neighbor?
Father God, help us to realize how far away we have strayed from our First Love. Forgive us, Lord, for esteeming the things of this world more than You.
Let us see once again our need, and have mercy on Your people.
In Jesus' Name, Amen.
SO PLEASE KEEP US IN YOUR PRAYERS AS WE EMBARK ON THIS PRAYER WALK UP THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER. MY PRAYER IS THAT I WOULD BE SENSITIVE TO THE WILL OF GOD AND THE DIRECTION HE WOULD HAVE ME TO TAKE EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.
AGAIN, I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE PROPHETIC WORD THAT HAS GONE OUT CONCERNING THE REVIVAL THAT WOULD TAKE PLACE UP THE MISSISSIPPI, AND WHETHER IT IS A TRUE PROPHETIC WORD OF GOD OR NOT... I HAVE NO PRECONCIEVED NOTIONS AS TO MY PART, IF ANY, IN THIS REVIVAL.
I KNOW THE LORD USED THE PROPHECIES TO CONFIRM HIS DIRECTION TO ME, AND I JUST WANT TO BE IN HIS PERFECT WILL. I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT WONDERFUL THINGS ARE GOING TO HAPPEN, BECAUSE WHEN HE CALLS US TO DO SOMETHING, WONDERFUL THINGS HAPPEN!
Just a side-note: if you would be interested in doing outreach with us a Mardi Gras this year...e-mail me...we will see what we can do to accommodate you!
I BELIEVE THIS IS A TIME WHEN MINISTRIES THAT ARE ENDEAVORING TO FURTHER THE KINGDOM OF GOD WILL BE SEVERELY TESTED AND ATTACKED BY THE ENEMIES OF CHRISTIANITY, AND THEY NEED YOUR FERVENT PRAYERS. I BELIEVE THERE WILL BE A TIME OF GREAT SHAKING IN THE CHURCH SOON TO COME. THOSE WHO ARE TRULY SEEKING TO FURTHER THE GOSPEL NEED TO BE LIFTED UP IN PRAYER LIKE NEVER BEFORE.
