Clinic Ministry Tour

Greetings, Friends! Praise the Lord for how He is working at this amazing Hanukkah time! So many reminders to check our lamp's oil, trim our lamps, and shine bright - and so much the more as we see The Expected Day approaching!! Praise the Lord for how His work is seen - both in the heavens and in our lives! So much telling us that time is very short!

Be sure to review the Timeline for a context of recent events and the celestial signs going on at this Biblical commemorative time.

Astronomy project: Go outside, after sunset, and watch Venus drawing near the horizon (in the West). Then look due East, and watch Pleiades rising. You can see both (if on a hill or such), and compare the sizes and what you can see with your unaided eye. As we talked about in the Throne video, Venus will be passing under Pleiades next year; but the unaided eye will readily be able to see the distance gap. Get visual field experience! Look up! Lift up yer head!

Praise the Lord, it's been a super busy time here at the Brook Cherith! Incredible to see how the Lord is working in both getting the place very ready - but also using it in a preparing way, to work in hearts and lives today! It has really impressed upon me the urgency of the time, to see how God is orchestrating so many things coming together right now - and quickly! Just last week the driveway was vastly improved, and other long-delayed super-critical systems were also brought online - finishing out some major needed aspects that potentially could have been a huge hinderance and showstopper.

On top of that, also getting many of the important areas (barely) functionally heated, too! A lot coming together that makes the place pretty much ready-to-go, right now! A LOT more needs to be done/supplied; but it is functionally usable right now. We need more fellow servants who will gird up their loins, and roll up their proverbial sleeves to help out; and desiring to be found by our Master, busy about the King's business.

Just today, a huge 3' diameter tree (at the base) was cut down from the middle of the clinic's driveway! You could drive around it before; but it was a huge nusiance. Well, it died about a month ago, due to the drought (only 1 of 2 on the whole property that I've seen; the other one is also in the middle of the driveway). This one was the most bothersome; and all that could be tackled right now. Provision is still needed to grind the stump fully out of the way (and maybe get the second tree); and then that will greatly make the driveway much wider and more navigatable.

Praise the Lord - right in time with all these other critical items being completed - within hours the Lord lined up the planning for a youth pastor to bring his church youth group to tour the clinic ministry!! I had a few days to prepare, but the events were set in motion very quickly! And it caught my attention that the tour was for Sunday, Nov 24th - a significant celestial shining reminder sign, too!

The tour was neat (from my perspective), because it finally allowed me to see the clinic with a large number of people crammed into some of the areas - which is how the end scenario is expected to be. There's been a lot of pre-planning; but it helps to visualize needs, traffic flow, etc. Also, it gave me a great chance to test the furnace heating of these areas (needs work, but at least keeps the chill off).

Thank the Lord for beautiful skies and relatively mild weather during the tour!! I started up the wood furnaces only an hour before they came, and that's about all that was needed to keep things comfy. There were 16 people in the tour!!! Besides the kids, we had two youth pastors, a pastor, and wives.

Praise the Lord, they got here right about 3pm, and we went wide open till 5:30!! Two-and-a-half hour tour! My voice was really hoarse from almost non-stop talking! It was a great joy to share this ministry with Christians, especially who understood the importance of what the Lord was doing!

Praise the Lord, the whole group was very, very attentive, thinking, and engaged!! The kids didn't have any specific questions, although I got them to talk a little bit. :-) But the adults had some good questions, and you could tell that everyone was thinking - and that the kids were completely following along with the questions and answers!

The Hospice/Expectant area was interesting, because you could tell that it got the kids thinking. It was definitely more serious; but it also was a great time to emphasize the ministry and testimony aspects of the clinic. You could see that they were chewing on these thoughts - both the kids and adults. We emphasized that the greatest thing you can leave behind is your testimony.

Inside the Patient Wing. This is one I really wanted to see: what would it look like full of people. We had one person in every bed and chair, and then standing, too. We parked here for a while, and really got the kids and adults to put themselves in the shoes of those who will be here in the days ahead. We went over what might be going through their mind, their questions, the cold, their needs, the noise, etc. You could really see that everybody was thinking about it. Interacting with some of the kids, they basically said they had never thought about these things before; but you could see the wheels turning. I emphasized that this place is only a stop-gap measure.

After that, we all crowded into the Kitchen, and went over how important that room and service was. They hadn't thought of that before; but did see the kitchen staff's job was just as important as the medics... After this, we went into the Cafeteria (I wish we had pictures from there), for the final wrap-up. We spent at least fifteen minutes in there (enjoying the wood furnace, too), giving a brief overview of how the place was built, some of my background, how the Lord had worked, and how the Lord wanted to use them as vessels for His honour. God will either work through us - or around us.

This was the main reason why the youth pastor set up the tour; because he saw the testimony of the ministry, and what the Lord was doing. God is looking for willing vessels that can be used for His glory. Who will rise up, trim their lamp and vessel, and go forward in service to the King?

"...Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work." - II Timothy 2:19-21

Praise the Lord for how the Spirit was working! The youth pastor, and then pastor also talked a little bit, that his morning's sermon was very closely aligned with what we were talking about! Several people nodded their heads. And he had prepared his message even before the youth pastor asked him about the tour! The Spirit was definitely impressing that something was very special with this tour, and that they were there for a reason!

After a word of prayer, people started heading to their vehicles. Just as we rounded the corner of a building, heading toward the driveway, right there on the crystal-clear horizon in front of us was Jupiter and Venus shining so beautifully!!!! (I went and got my camera, to take a picture as soon as they left).

I pointed it out to them, just mentioning that on our channel we talk about the celestial signs such as the one that was standing right in front of us... It was almost impossible to miss, it was shining so clearly!!!! It definitely registered strong, that there was something to all of this; and that it was all connected!!! Praise the Lord for the celestial finale of the tour! Praise the Lord for all that they saw - on the earth and in the heavens!!!

It truly was a blessing to see the Lord's work not only prepared for those in the future, but also affecting lives - young and old, here and across the internet - to rise up, present themselves as vessels for the Lord's service and honour; and to serve Him first, and highest above all else.

Thank you to all those who financially partner with this ministry. You are part with the sixteen lives that were impacted, yesterday, for things of eternal value. You are part with the lives - right now - across the internet that are impacted by what the Lord is working right now. You are my fellow servants, and will partake of the fruits of this ministry field. We may not be able to change the world; but we can change somebody's world, for eternity.

"And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching." - Hebrews 10:24-25

"And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever." - Daniel 12:3

Time is so short; let us reach for eternal treasures and starry crowns. May all that we do bring forth eternal fruits for our King - that we can lay at His feet in a declaration of His eternal worth and glory. Let us have ears to hear, hands and feet to obey; rising up, trimming our lamps, and shining bright for our Beloved... HEARING Him, LOVING Him, and SERVING Him - FIRST - and HIGHEST ABOVE ALL ELSE!!

Brother Daniel
