May has been another month of making Kingdom Advances for Gill Ministries. After returning from our recent ministry trip to Colombia, South America and ministering in a Prayer Conference in San Francisco, we have continued to experience more open doors and mighty moves of God's Spirit.
Reaching 40 Million Weekly
A major door is beginning to open for us to have our own weekly, one-hour television broadcast on a new global television station with a viewing audience of 40 million people. This is on the new global Cross Television Station that is part of Global Net TV.
This past week, after appearing on an hour segment of their "Seed-A-Thon" with David Andrade and then personally hosting two more hours of their fund-raising telecast, Gill Ministries was offered a weekly one-hour slot on this powerful new global television station.
While we could do a "live telecast" from their studios in Duarte, California, our ministry travel schedule would obviously not make it possible for us to be there every week. Now, we are beginning to understand God's delay in providing the money for us to upgrade our cameras and other sound equipment. There is another, higher grade of high definition which we will need. Before we had part of the vision; now it is becoming clearer. Please join us in prayer for both God's wisdom and the needed finances to upgrade our own video production studio to accommodate this awesome opportunity for the expansion of God's Kingdom.
"We are not going back to church as usual!"
God moved in awesome power in our meetings in three locations in North Carolina. Four of these meetings were in the Raleigh area of North Carolina. This Pentecostal church has about nine hundred people and yet, prior to this, only a small percent had received the baptism in the Holy Spirit. The gifts of the Holy Spirit were not operating freely. God placed a hunger in the heart of the pastor and many of the church leaders for a move of the Spirit of God.
As I ministered on Sunday morning, hundreds received the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. For the next three nights, I had the privilege of teaching on how to operate in all nine gifts of the Holy Spirit. How exciting it was to see these believers, many of whom were freshly baptized in the Holy Spirit, begin to move in the realm of the Spirit.
The following Sunday, I received a report that the prophetic gifts were flowing in the morning service and the awesome presence of God became so intense that the pastor stood motionless behind the pulpit without being able to say a word for close to five minutes. When he could finally speak he said, "We are not going back to church as usual."
He told our dear friend, Joe Faircloth, " I've never enjoyed anyone coming to us as much as Papa Gill."
The young People in Myrtle Beach hung this
welcome in my hotel room.
It was so uplifting, everytime I looked at it!
Miracles in South Carolina
Continuing on to the Myrtle Beach area of South Carolina, I ministered in a church where I had done an ISOM graduation two years ago.
This church is full of the most dynamic, turned-on youth that I have ever met.
For five days, I taught on the subject of receiving and ministering the healing power of God. In almost every meeting, we experienced exciting miracles as they practiced on one another. By Saturday evening, they were all experiencing healing miracles happening through their hands.
On Sunday morning, exciting miracles were happening through the hands of these newly trained believers. One of the young men in their church had broken one of the main bones in his foot and was wearing a heavy support boot that came up to just below his knee. As one of the healing teams ministered healing to him, he took off the support, threw it up onto the platform and with tears streaming down his face he was jumping up and down on that foot and shouting "I am healed. The pain is all gone!"
Another exciting miracle that stood out from the many other miracles taking place was the healing of a young autistic boy.
The Resurrection Film
When I returned from this trip, I met with David Wood, the Executive Producer of the upcoming new movie, The Resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is slated for release on Easter 2015. David has asked me to be one of his Spiritual Advisors for this powerful new film that will complete the picture so powerfully depicted in the film, The Passion of the Christ.
David Wood seemed excited about some of the powerful content ideas I shared with him for depicting what happened between the cross and the throne that completes the story of Christ's work on our behalf. I was also able to provide him with additional historical resources by way of the translation of ancient manuscripts from the time of Christ that were given to me over thirty years ago.
Major funding has already been designated for this major new film and the project is now moving ahead at a rapid pace. Please join us in prayer for this venture that will touch many lives for the Kingdom of God.
The Gathering Place
Last month, we shared with you how God was leading us to start a new group of believers at Big Bear Lake. On Pentecost Sunday, The Gathering Place was launched. They are meeting in the Gill Ministries' auditorium with both Sunday morning and evening meetings.
Under our apostolic covering, Scott and Glenda McConaughey will be pastoring this group with their powerful prophetic and pastoral anointing
For the last year, they have been leading the praise and worship at our weekly Friday night meetings. Then eight months ago, God led them to move to Big Bear Lake, and they have been opening the heavens by conducting praise, worship and prayer meetings three times a day, seven days a week.
About six weeks ago, they began afternoon prayer walks around Big Bear Valley and they are now leading teams into the marketplace. They are going into businesses and telling them that they have been praying for the business of Big Bear Valley for several months and now want to meet them personally and learn about any specific requests that they may have.
The response has been overwhelming and we are believing for a harvest of new souls into the Kingdom here in our valley. Joyce and I will be ministering in many of the meetings when we are in town, and Scott, Glenda and our son, John, will be ministering at The Gathering Place while we are traveling.
On to the Nations
I will be ministering in Guatemala leaving on May 22 and returning on May 28.
Then, after speaking at an ISOM graduation on June 2nd, I will be traveling and ministering in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia from June 5 - 24.
In July, I will be ministering in Athens and Dallas, Texas.
Then Joyce and I will be ministering in Toronto, Canada, and Chicago.
In August, we will be ministering in Irvine, Rialto and Anaheim, California and in Bogotá, Colombia, South America.
Your prayers and your giving are greatly needed and very important to us. Please pray about what God would have you do to partner with us and to help us as we keep advancing the Kingdom of God around the world.
Your missionaries to the world,
A.L. & Joyce Gill
