Update from Todd BentleyBy Todd Bentley

Dear Friends,

REACHING THE LOST AND EMPOWERING BELIEVERS HAS ALWAYS BEEN OUR PASSION

For over 10 years, we at Fresh Fire Ministries have been committed to missions, evangelism and revival. Our passion has always been to reach the lost with the love of Christ through local evangelism and third world missions projects while stirring the faith of believers around the world. God has honored this commitment to soul winning and today our vision is greater than ever!

ONE MILLION SAVED AND OUR VISION IS GREATER THAN EVER

We have already seen well over 1 million public decisions for Christ, recorded thousands of testimonies of healing, fed the hungry, clothed the poor and sparked several outpourings of God's sovereign power that has stirred hunger in the body of Christ, around the globe.

Here is a testimony recently received from one of our partners...

"I was diagnosed with what the doctors called an incurable nerve condition. I was crippled, I was bedridden for 8 months, I was out of school for a year. I was in the hospital for 8 weeks and when they discharged me a lot of my function was back but I still had a lot of agonizing pain. I went to a Fresh Fire conference, Todd prayed for me and was completely delivered of all the pain! A couple years later I'm still free of pain and have seen many people dramatically healed when I pray!" -Sophia

WE CANNOT DO WHAT WE DO WITHOUT YOUR HELP

We are so thankful that God is using our ministry to make such a powerful difference in so many lives. And friends, we couldn't do it without your help, thank you for your ongoing support of this ministry through your friendship, prayers and financial giving. The support of all our partners goes a long way and has an eternal impact.

WE ARE SOON EXPANDING OUR REVIVAL CENTER AND HOSTING WEEKLY MEETINGS

As we move through the end of 2011 and approach the new year we are furthering the vision God has given us both locally and internationally. There has never been a more exciting time for Fresh Fire Ministries! God has been speaking to Todd about beginning to contend for breakthrough here in Charlotte, NC. We will soon be expanding our base and hosting a series of weekly gatherings that are open to all. The purpose is to create a place that becomes a stronghold of the Lord where that impacts the region and nation with the power of the Gospel worship, prayer and equipping of the saints.

CONTINUING TO MINISTER AND PROVIDE RELIEF IN THE SLUMS OF HAITI

Besides our upcoming training schools and conferences we also are putting as much of our resource as possible into the nation of Haiti. We are continuing to make a difference just a few miles north of Port au Prince in the Cité Soliel region, one of the hardest hit areas by the 2010 earthquake. This is an area, the largest slum in the northern hemisphere is known to be the poorest, most dangerous few square miles in the Americas. We have connected with a key pastor who, with the help of his family has spent his life making Jesus name known among the poor and has recently began supporting about 20 children who, overnight, lost their parents in the earthquake. Fresh Fire Ministries is committed to doing everything we can to help them go on. We desperately want to increase our support for these kids.

Our first drive into Cité Soliel last January was absolutely shocking. We slowly drove down the narrow streets, almost impassible due to their condition, the volume of people and burning garbage piled high along the road. On our way to the church we witnessed a fist fight breaking out, mobs of onlookers surrounded them chanting their approval. It was common to see babies sitting alone and naked in heaps of garbage, crying with nobody in sight while big black pigs rummaged through the waste around them. Young children played and bathed in canal swamps amongst floating garbage and human waste. The stench of the open sewers, the sounds of desperate people crying out and sights of how people are forced to live continues to grip our hearts and compels us to do something about it.

When we were in Port au Prince in January other organizations heard we were ministering in Cité Soliel and warned us not to go there saying the area was beyond hope. We felt even more compelled to reach out to the people and make a difference there. We spent almost 2 weeks ministering night and day in the heart of Cité Soliel. We found the people to be friendly, compassionate and extremely responsive to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Here is one testimony from our meetings in the center of the slums...

"A local gang leader, responded to a word of knowledge and came up on stage for prayer for a debilitating disease. When Todd prayed the pain immediately left the man and the presence of God came over him very, very strongly. Overcome, he instantly fell to his knees sobbing. He gave his life to Jesus while trembling. Still thanking God he stood up and like a son to a father he embraced Todd and wept. It was a powerful redemptive moment during the crusade where the presence of God touched everyone."

CLEAN WATER PROVIDED IN HAITI SAVING THOUSANDS OF LIVES

Everywhere we went in Haiti we were on the edge of tears. It was pure joy to enable a massive clean water project that still, today, is providing thousands of people with free, easily accessible drinking water! This has undoubtedly stopped the spread of a cholera epidemic that was killing thousands Now that we've returned we've taken with us a sadness mixed with a gripping conviction that we must do something. This area is a mere 2 hour flight from America. We cannot not forget them. During the last year we have strengthened our friendship with our Haitian Pastoral Network and are working on plans to return in January.

EXPECTING TO SEE A MASSIVE HARVEST OF SOULS HARVEST IN INDIA

As well in May we will return to India where we expect a massive harvest of souls! We've seen great results over the years in Southern India. Ministering in villages, orphanages, hospitals, to government leaders and in large open air stadium crusades that often held 220,000 in a single meeting. We are looking forward to seeing our friends in India again and seeing an incredible impact for the Gospel as their churches continue to expand with disciples.

PARTNERS, THIS IS ONLY POSSIBLE WITH YOUR SUPPORT

Friends and partners we value your support and cannot do this without your involvement. Your support has been so valuable to us, and we count each dollar and each prayer as precious and absolutely vital to the mandate we've been given by the Lord. Now is the time to get ready to launch some new directives like our upcoming weekly gatherings, and believing for a greater impact in Haiti and India. We are asking for your you to consider being a big part of what we are doing through prayer and financial support.

PLEASE CONSIDER SOWING A SPECIAL GIFT OR INCREASING YOUR MONTHLY GIVING

Would you consider sowing a financial gift today above and beyond your regular giving or increase your monthly support? Each gift goes directly towards touching someone who desperately needs your help. Whether in an upcoming meeting, someone who can't go on without a miracle or a child in Haiti who recently lost their parents in the earthquake- every dollar you give makes an incredible impact and we are so thankful to you.

Please considering sowing today. Please take a moment to simply ask the Lord what He would have you do and then respond.

Thank you friends and partners. Your ongoing support and prayer does not go unnoticed. Be richly blessed in Jesus name.
