Yet Another Yarn Alive Miracle!
Only Ten More Pledges Needed

Yarn Alive House

Last week we felt led to increase the target amount by US $50,000 for a total of $350,000. On Wednesday, I was talking with a business person who decided to give that extra $50,000. So as of this writing, we only need ten more pledges and the target will be fully reached.

What are the lessons in all of this?

• The Lord is our source and He understands the timing. He would not let us try to raise money until quite recently. It’s amazing to think that the campaign to raise $350,000 was launched on June 30, and now only four weeks later, is nearly complete.

• If we hear and obey the Lord’s strategy, we can only succeed. We mustn’t forget that the week before we started the campaign, the Lord prompted us to ask all of you to focus on connecting with MPP (either live or listening later or reading the transcripts). Just one week later, we got the idea of asking for 300 “Gideon’s men” to give $1,000.

• The power of prophetic acts—blowing the shofar.Part of the Lord’s strategy was that we were to blow the shofar. Somehow this brought incredible shifting. Last week I talked about the three different sounds. The sounds and their corresponding results occurred for Yarn Alive (YA). They are as follows:

  • Tekiah—The long blast which establishes boundaries. Blowing the shofar firmly put the whole sphere of Yarn Alive and its fundraising efforts under the Lordship of Jesus. Satan might try to convince us that there isn’t enough money or that the task is impossible. No. This is part of God’s kingdom. His rule, His resources.
  • Shevarim—The two-tone blast that brings breakthrough and unlocks resources. Amazing resources were unlocked
  • Teruah—The short, sharp, repeating blasts that announce the glory of God. Truly His glory has been upon this whole project. We not only thank the Lord for the breakthrough, but we also know that much, much more is coming.
• This is a first fruits for Arise 5.From the very beginning, I never thought that I should ask the Arise 5 people for help in this. But in the end, over 95% of the funds have come from Arise 5 or those connected to it. This is a first fruits. Thus, I believe the Arise 5 people will now begin to see breakthrough in every nation.• The glory of the Lord is resting on Yarn Alive. Not only was the quick, glorious fundraising a prophetic sign for Arise 5, but it is for YA as well. Because God’s glory is on it, I feel yet-unthought-of ministries, ideas, and blessings will come forth.

• Blessing on Taiwan—Yes, over 90% of the funds came from Taiwan. This is amazing. Not only does this bring blessing to Taiwan, but in Japan we can expect the revival that is now there to spread to here.

Anyway, we only need about ten more pledges to complete this project. If you feel led to give, please respond by sending a message via email or text message to me or to the coordinator in your country. Please include the following information:

  1. Your name and country
  2. The number of “Gideon’s men” you will represent—$1,000, $2,000, $5,000, or even $10,000—whatever God puts on your heart.
