Schedule, Announcements and Testimonies: January 25-28th, 2024

Hey Fam! Happy Thursday!

I’m excited for tonight! Tonight begins 40 hours of night and day worship and prayer over southwest Florida, through a ministry called Awaken the Dawn. ATD has been called to rebuild the fallen tabernacle of David by bringing events like this across America. And, this weekend, they will even be in an actual tent! A 3000-person circus tent. In an amazing display of unity (which I know is BIG on the Lord’s heart for 2024), worship teams from all over the region will be participating by each taking 2-hour slots during these 40 hours. The leader of the ministry- David Bradshaw, will be speaking tonight and I feel called to go.

This ministry is such an important part of our prophetic history too. In fact, David was the very first person that I ever heard teach on the Tabernacle of David. It was so amazing how the Lord set it all up too. At the time, ATD was based on Virginia, but they had been called to do a 40-hour tent in the Tampa area in May of 2021. In March of 2021, 3 weeks after I had responded to Gods call to go more full time into ministry so I could bring worship and preaching to public places all over the 941 and Florida, David came to The Front for a pre rally, and he shared the Tabernacle of David message. Up until this point I just thought that our method of evangelism was what God had told ME to do. I never knew it was actually following a biblical precedent.

When I heard his message (which you can hear here- ) I was blown away. I was also WAY more confident that I was following the will of God!

I don’t know what the Lord has for me tonight, but I know it is something special. If you want to come, let me know!

Also, this weekend is the Gasparilla Parade- the 4th largest parade in America. Lord willing, I will be ministering there on Saturday morning. If you want to come let me know!

As for this past weekend…

On Friday, the weather was still pretty decent and there were a good number of people out at the park. A number of them stopped and listened, and at least one prayed to receive the Lord- a 13-year-old girl. This is her:

Our brother Mike M also got filled with the Spirit and began speaking in tongues for the first time, which was awesome! Such a great way to commemorate our 200th week!

BIG thanks to Laney, Amber, Augast, Thom, Mike M, Mike K, Rochelle, Isaac and Gene for coming out to serve! Great work!

On Saturday, it was pretty cold, but there was still a good amount of people at the park. Only Mike and Jackson showed up initially, so I just played songs and preached. Many were listening though which was awesome. Just as we were packing up, we met 3 girls from Tennessee who were also out preaching on a speaker. I was shocked! They said they just moved here, and that they came because God told them that there was a move of God in this area that they were meant to jump into. Right after this, several of our teammates came and we all had a nice time of prayer together.

Pretty cool!

On Sunday, the sun was shining, and the weather was pretty nice. We got to pray for a good amount of people too. I also heard that at least 5 people prayed to receive the Lord! Hallelujah! Here’s a few pics I took:

At the end, a Ukrainian women came and asked for prayer for her husband who was fighting in the war. Her heart was very heavy, and God really touched her. She ended up singing a worship song in Russian, which was awesome…and so good for her. It was such good timing.

BIG thanks to Rene, Maria, Laney, Amber, Mike K, Rochelle, Isaac, Gene, and Chuck for coming to serve! Great job!

We should have some pretty good weather this weekend, so I’m excited to minister to some big crowds again! We hope to see you soon!

Love and blessings,

Chris, Sofiya and Natalie

PS- Given that a baby’s weight changes hour by hour, how cool is it that we caught the exact moment when Natalie weighed 9.41 pounds! Such a sign!
