Another Astounding Testimony: Mismatched, Addiction and Now...He's a Believer!

My friends, you just read about Janet's husband's transformation and a few of you even shared stories in the comments about your spouses coming to faith in Christ! Wow! Lynn and I—our heads are spinning and our hearts are jumping for joy! AND, here is another one! Trish Fuhlendorf reached out to us a few weeks ago and shared a stunning video testimony done by her husband who is now a full time pastor. Once we saw it, we had to know more! Trish not only lived in a mismatched marriage for ten years, but also lived and dealt with her husband's addiction to alcohol as well. I love what Trish shared in her email: "I have a very small local marriage ministry here in Denver, which consists of the Lord placing Christian women, who are struggling in their marriages (many who are ready to leave), whether it be because...

Who Were The Pray-ers?

From Monday’s post…….However, before we leave I want to go and give a hug and thank you to each of the trio of the prayer team. I start looking all over. I can’t find them. Ahhhhhhh, now that is an interesting story in itself. I haven’t been able to stop considering the trio of pray-ers since I arrived home a week ago…………… Let me pick up the story from Monday. The girls and I has sufficiently wiped our faces and we are still all smiles from ear-to-ear and remain pretty-much in shock by what has just transpired. However, we must make our way to the airport shortly. We stand and start toward the exit of the main room where there are still tons of people. And as I stand I’m compelled to want to say thank you one more time to the praying trio before we leave. After all, it’s... Read more →

Jesus Heals! In Front of My Eyes!

If you missed Friday’s post, go back and read it now. Here is the link. Now let’s pick up the story. Okay, remember my daughter who is 19 just received word that Jesus launched her into a new journey. And my friends, already so much has happened to her as she returned to her college campus. But, let’s not get sidetracked. Oh and I should mention, Dineen was not with us as she had to return to San Jose early that morning for a family get together. Bummer! Onward. The trio of pray-ers move on to Gina as Caitie is sitting next to me telling me about what she just experienced. We are both teary-eyed and overwhelmed. If you stop for a minute and think about what we are experiencing, it’s a Holy Mind-blow. I mean really. Angels are in the room. Jesus is launching teens into His Kingdom, people... Read more →

Does Jesus Heal Today?

SUMites, Where to begin. Let me ask you a question. Do you believe God still heals? Can He cure cancer, heal the blind restore hearing in the deaf? If you are a SUMite, I know you said yes. I know you said that because we MUST believe in great miracles of God’s love and kindness. If we had little faith, we could not walk this unique walk of the unequally yoked. Today, I’m going to step out and share with you what transpired on Saturday. I may stumble through the story as I’m still processing it all. Get a cup of coffee or tea. Pull up a chair and I pray, I pray with all that I am, that you feel chills run all over your body as the Holy Spirit confirms His power and love for God’s people. You met Gina, right? We prayed for her several years ago... Read more →

SUMite -Brie Testimony

Hi SUMites, What follows is an email from SUMite, Brie Gutierrez. Brie's story is one of God's faithfulness and the beauty of the body of Christ. WE LOVE THIS SUM FAMILY. We love you too Brie. Lynn & Dineen From Brie: Hello my beloved mentors, I hope you are both well. Thank you for always leading and encouraging us SUMites through our journey. I always find I read the blog at just the right moment and it always speaks to my heart. I wanted to share the video my church (30k people) will see this weekend. It's a story of how Gods people come together for one another. Thanks for praying for me in the hospital - I WILL never forget that.

The Miracles of Walmart Prayer Day

Hello SUM Nation: I hope you watched the video from our Walmart Prayer Day, if not click here and get ready to smile. My friends, the Lord surely showed up and heaven opened over that store. Let me share some of the details that touched my heart. There were 10 Team members including the Teen-Brigade, as they have become known, who were the sign holders and photographer. Thank you: Heidi Holmes, my sweet sister Sumite, who drove from Nevada to participate. And Jodie, Bob, Sue, Lindsay, Lynn, Felicia and grandbaby Elise. Gina, Caitie Erich and Karamia.

#SUM Nation Walmart Day

Hi Sumites, Things are coming together for this Thursday, our Walmart Prayer Day. I also call this adventure one of our Random Acts of Kindness days. When I started this adventure all I had was a Word. A Word from God. I saw a picture in my mind of shoppers at Walmart in line to check out and shoppers in line for prayer. I didn’t know if this was a good idea, if you would support it, or if anyone would show up with me to pray. Well of course, we won’t know the full scope of this escapade until it’s finished. But let me tell you what has happened already. You, the SUMite Nation have donated in small amounts at a time and some large amounts (a few of you) so much money that we have a ton of gift cards.

The House of SUM where we come from all the nations to share our hearts with You and with each other. Thank you for this amazing place where we gather to unite “the church.” Thank you this is a place where we don’t judge one another by appearance.

The Day the Devil Came to Steal My Life

Today it's my supreme pleasure to introduce you to Lisa Bujanda. She along with her husband, Gil, are the pastors of my church here in Temecula. I adore Lisa and count it a true blessing to have her as a sister in Christ. She has been walking in the gifts of the spirit since she had a miraculous encounter with love. So today, I pray her true and personal story will inspire you. I love you Lisa and Gil. May your story bring great honor and glory to Jesus. Hugs, Lynn ----- It was the week of my 23rd birthday. I was at death’s door with a Heart & Lung disease. Doctors had given me no hope and no cure.

This event was the first step for me to help me realize how God can reveal His intimacy and love. When I lost my Golden Retriever who was like a child for me, I was devastated. Not only had I lost my canine child I lost my walking partner. I can't even begin to presume how many miles we covered together.

A Miracle Perhaps???

So my friends, I issued a kissing challenge on Monday. And I arrived home from traveling on Sunday and found myself with a giant cold. Achew! So there wasn’t any kissing happening around here.

What is God's Will For Each of Us?

On Friday we left with the strange and fascinating story about Elijah. How he stepped out onto the mountain to haven an encounter with God. If you remember, (if you don’t’ remember, you MUST read Friday’s post) I’m seated in a Bible study addressing the leader as I’m speaking. I continued explaining my thoughts on this passage in 1 Kings and said, “I believe this (taking a step of faith) is especially true when it comes to healing. Healing of our hearts, our spirit and especially physical healing.” Well that is when everything went nuts. The leader stopped talking. I stopped talking. She was staring at me with such intensity and I didn’t have a clue what was going on.

The Jordan River Is Only A Step

Hey, let’s continue with our series and -Part the Jordan, shall we? I know many of you shared with me your “Jordan.” We all have areas that God is working out in us for our good and His glory. And my friends please know I have earnestly prayed for you. So let’s talk about what it truly means to take a step of action. I think we first need to define and believe that God can take action to accomplish His will anytime and anyway He sees fit. But, what is really cool if you think about it, is that God wants us to participate in His work. Like Dineen said on Wednesday, “He could do it all Himself but then where would that leave us?

Where is the parting of my Red Sea?

I’m wondering if you’ve noticed??? There has been a shift in our atmosphere here among the Sumites. This house has gone through a transition in the last six months. Dineen and I have talked about this transition a lot but what was really cool is that last week I was talking to Beverly Etzel, one of our long-time readers at the conference and this is what she said, “In the early years our discussions (posts at SUM) centered around husbands (spouses). Now they are centered around our faith. They are upward focused (on God) instead of side-focused (on man). Whoa! She is so right. So I’m wondering if you have noticed the transition in yourself?

Yep, there it is. My "new" set of wheels. My dear friends, I've taken you on this car journey with me, first sharing my family's finanical challenges, the need to sell my "beloved" SUV, and then the search for another car. Nothing "magically" appeared but I consider God's provision in this whole scenario as pretty evident and well, just plain cool. My SUV sold in less than 12 hours, giving us much needed funds, and now I have this cute 2003 VW Beetle that reminds me of the little car I drove through high school and college. The pieces just fell into place as we found this little gem online and made a quick sale with an adorable young couple ready to part with it. Even the CarFax said it was a great buy!
