Hot Topic: honoring Marilyn Hickey

My mom, Marilyn Hickey, is receiving a very honoring & fitting award from ORU.  She’s receiving the Lifetime Global Achievement Award, and I couldn’t be more proud of her.  She served on the Board of Regents for ORU for more than 20 years and has made numerous contributions, tangible and intangible, to the success of this university.  For almost 20 years, she was the Chairman of the Board of Regents and faithfully served to promote the vision and purpose of ORU.  I’m super proud of her everyday and today in particular.

I’m also proud of my mom for her continuing pursuit of learning, improving and growing!  She continues to inspire me to love the Bible and walk with the Holy Spirit.  May God continue to work through her life to make the Bible vibrant & engaging around the world!

Congrats mom!!

some really AMAZING things from mom’s Pakistan trip!!

My mom was ministering in Karachi Pakistan last week & seeing some totally amazing things from God. She’s been going to Pakistan since around 1995 & has made more than 5 different ministry trips to various large cities throughout Pakistan. Here’s a quick summary of what happened last week:

  • Ministry Training School: she had more than 2,800 leaders come for a day of leadership training to help them be more effective with their ministries & outreaches
  • Political favor: she met with many key government leaders & had the honor to pray for healing for many of them & their families
  • Media favor: when she landed there were 6 different TV stations there to document her arrival & she was also on the front page of the English newspaper in Karachi
  • 3 nights of city-wide healing meetings – there were approximately 90,000 in attendance on the 1st night, about 130,000 on the 2nd night & almost 200,000 on the 3rd night
  • lots of totally amazing miracles – deaf ears, blind eyes, back problems, paralysis, etc.

I write this because I know that God totally loves Pakistan & the Pakistani people. They are very wonderful & it brings tremendous joy to my heart to hear of God’s extravagant love being poured out on this wonderful nation. Let’s celebrate! 🙂

God’s goodness in many different ways!

Can i just say that this weekend has been thoroughly cool & i’m serious!  Yesterday, our church (orcc) had a clean up day & more than 70 folks showed up to transform our building.  It was in desperate need of some tlc & they even pulled out 3 tree stumps!  Reece & the kids came home pretty grungy, but SUPER fulfilled, getting to do something meaningful  w our uber cool church fam!!

Next, mom is in Detroit & held a healing symposium at one of the largest mosques in America.  This is a totally ground breaking event & there’s been great synergy between her the & imam of the mosque.  She sent me a text this morning & said it went SUPER well & she was extremely pleased!!  A Congressman came to the event, as well as Bishop Winans.  This was a total God win! 🙂

As for me, i had the honor of getting to promote saving moses on the int’l tv network, Daystar.  This is the 1st time i’ve had the honor to do this & i was blown away by the generosity of Marcus & Joni Lamb – simply amazing.

Its seriously breathtaking to watch God work.  I’m in awe
