The Drought is breaking, the rivers are flooding, the grass is getting long, Let us all Praise God for what he is doing and has done. Thank him for sending rain in the midst of drought.
Let us believe that the spiritual drought in the church will come to an end.

Generation Fire has a partnership with Joel News International to provide you with the latest news of what God is doing around the world; we currently provide a RSS News feed directly from our website.
Joel News has put together a special DVD (Why Europe? Why Now?)
Europe has become one of the world's most challenging mission fields. The church seems to be in decline, but under the surface, on a grassroots level, new life is springing forth! God is at work in Europe in most unlikely ways. A television crew of the Caleb Project visited dozens of places across the continent and interviewed the pioneers of exciting 'fresh expressions' of church and ministry.
Practical details: The DVD is (only) English spoken. The playtime is 30 minutes. It's being distributed in a standard plastic DVD cover. It's an excellent tool for vision casting, teaching and prayer mobilization for Europe.
Special Price available to Australia
$42 Aud for one per DVD
$34 Aud for 10 plus per DVD
$26 Aud for 25 plus per DVD
F) A week of 24/7 Prayer
We have put together a schedule for the whole week and are hoping that through our different gifts we can bring a pleasing offering to our Lord. The vision began with Revelation 4 v 8-11 and just envisioning the angels worshipping God day and night and all they could say is Holy Holy is the Lord God almighty.
Please find attached the invitation flyer that you can print out and distribute to all who have a heart to worship God. We also have attached a schedule in case your congregation would like to lead us in a time of worship. It can be through singing, playing an instrument, reading poems, reading scripture, dancing, drawing, painting... we want to leave space to the Holy Spirit to lead this time as well as we just focus on worshipping the King of kings.
We look forward to hearing from you.

"I came back, because it was the will of God for me to live with my children. But I would be very happy to go back there. Now I have seen when a Christian dies, he goes to a better place…."
(Ethiopia)—Fatuma Shubisa, had married an evangelist, and had converted to Christianity from Islam. But the Ethiopian mother-of-nine fell sick and, after some time, she was found to have passed away by her mother who had come to care for her. (Photo: CBN)
There was great mourning in the small village of Alelu, as Fatuma's death was made known among friends and family members. But word of Fatuma's passing also reached the ears of a Christian missionary named Warsa Buta, who was in the area.
Acting on a promise he says the Lord gave him the day he was saved—that God would raise the dead through him—Buta sought out the deceased woman.
A non-Christian crowd gathered as Buta the missionary continued to pray over Fatuma's sheet-covered body. They asked, "Why is this Pentecostal man praying over a dead body?"
Warsa related what happened next, "I had faith the Lord would work through me. I prayed as Peter prayed. 'Fatuma, be raised. I ask you in the name of the Lord. Come to life.' When I prayed that prayer—'Fatuma, rise in the name of Jesus'—she sat up in the bed."
It had been 12 hours since Fatuma had died.
"…Immediately I found myself in my body," explained Fatuma, "I sat up in my bed and started asking, 'What is this? What's happening? What's going on?' Then everybody was surprised. Some were commenting, 'A Pentecostal man can call back a dead soul to a body? If this is real, then we all will become Christians.' And they were shouting."
During the time she was deceased, Fatuma apparently experienced some wonderful glimpses of Heaven and of family members who had gone before, which she talks about on the CBN video report.
