Ministry at the Community of the Holy Spirit in Willoughby, Ohio!

(October 21-23, 2011… Church Advance and Sunday Morning Service)

If it is true that a picture can speak a thousand words, then I’m going to let these photos speak for themselves. I know the Spirit of what took place this past weekend at The Community of the Holy Spirit Church Advance was absolutely powerful in God’s Word, Wisdom, Truth, Love and Spirit. There was no lack. People came all weekend excited and expecting to hear the word of the Lord and to receive through the Gifts of the Spirit. The Lord met His people in so many ways. There was an anointing service for all needs and God was so there. His presence was over whelming in all the services!  I kept having to catch my breath because I was overcome with the sweet spirit and anointing in that place. WOW!

My husband, Dan, and I had the wonderful opportunity to minister Friday evening to the church leadership and all day on Saturday at the Church Advance on “The Remnant Church.”  Dan delivered the Sunday morning message called, “The Mighty Warriors of CHS Willoughby!” Morning worship with Pastors Chris and Vicki Fisher along with the worship team brought us immediately into the presence of the Lord. Thank you to Pastors Chris and Vicki Fisher, the leadership and to all the beautiful people of CHS for inviting us to minister to God’s people! It was so refreshing in every sense of the word.  I’m still basking in the “over flow” from all that took place. What a sweet fragrance released among us. AND…I’m still wearing that fragrance now that I’ve returned home.

    Sheila what a loving congregation. The photo of you and Pastor Dan expresses the joy you must be receiving that day. What a privilege we have to worship freely and in one accord with our brothers and sisters in Christ.

  2. Sheila says:

    The most loving congregation ever Robin! We were ” overcome” by the love of the people and Pastors Chris and Vicki Fisher treated us like royalty. It was such an honor to be His vessels this past weekend and always. We love the Fisher Family and CHS from Willoughby, Ohio! 🙂

I know that Jason and I were so grateful that you took the extra time with us… answering our questions, teaching us, and just letting us enjoy some wonderful fellowship with you. We miss you allready and hope that it won’t be too long until you come back and see us again soon!!!!

      How exciting to read your comments Laura! Meeting you and Jason for the first time on this trip was our joy. AND… spending personal time with the two of you gave us the opportunity to get to know who you really are. The two of you are ROYALTY! There’s such a deep calling upon your lives.

      I’m still trying to get back in the swing of things here in Atlanta and it isn’t so easy. I”m missing all of you from OHIO. Ha! It was indeed a landmark weekend with God and with each other. Hopefully, we will be invited back in the near future. We’ll be keeping you and Jason in our prayers as you continue on your journey and destiny in Christ. What a great time to be alive Laura! I love you so!

    I am still “chewing” on everything that Pastor Dan and you shared with us. I am going to start a journal (as suggested by Pastor Dan) and see what God reveals through it. Thank you both for allowing us to draw from the well of your ministry! You are loved!!!!

      Hello Russ! 🙂

      What a joy to read your comments this morning about the weekend ministry. You will be “blown away” when you look back over time in that journal of yours to see where God has taken you on this journey and all the many times He intervened in situations. Keeping a journal is a great suggestion. Dan keeps one himself and journals in it daily.

      It was such a humbling experience this past weekend watching how God just moved into lives and made a difference. What an honor and priviledge to be invited to be a part of the family at CHS over the weekend. We loved it!

      By the way…I’m still talking about your beautiful home that’s only seconds from massive and majestic Lake Erie. You have a great community there.
      You are LOVED so much by us! 🙂

      Minister Vicki!
      You and Pastor Chris make us PROUD spiritual parents too! My buttons were bursting as I watched you last weekend in ministry and listened to all you had to share. You have a great anointing my friend. I love you so!

      From your “Butta-Bean” parent! (Noone but us understand what that is all about)

    Sheila, I know that the hearts of the people were greatly touched by the ministry of you and Pastor Dan; and from the pictures of your time with the congregation in Willoughby, Ohio it seems like it was a time of not only ministry for you and Pastor Dan, but also a time of refreshing for both of you. What an awesome group of people.

      It was a refreshing time for ALL Jane! It was a LIFE GIVING weekend with everyone we came into contact with. You would have LOVED this environment and the people! Thank you for your comments! I love you!
