NEWSLETTER FROM HEART4HOMELESS & POWERHOUSE CHURCH SEPTEMBER 2013
H E A RT 4 H O M E L E S S
IN AUGUST WE WERE ABLE TO SEND OUR FIRST MISSIONARY, JUSTIN SUDDIETH, FROM ORLANDO TO DENMARK.
Times are changing in Orlando This summer has been fast forward for us here in Orlando. We have been working hard, sweating in the thrift shop and serving people in the street. Two times a week we have been giving out drinks and besides this we have had our regular church meetings, prison ministry etc. In August we send out our
CHRISTINA HAS BEEN IN ORLANDO FOR 7 WEEKS
first “ambassador” Justin Suddieth from Heart4Homeless to our church in Denmark. Justin has been living in our house for a year and since he came we have been talking about this - that one day he would travel and tell people what God has done in his life and what God is doing in Orlando.
YOUNG PEOPLE FROM THE CHURCH HELPING OUT.
Young people are now coming to the church, including af family that is deeply involved with worship. Christina from Denmark has been here 7 weeks and Fred Ngabirano who is married to my sister Josephine from Rwanda has been here for 2 months. God has called him and his wife to come and join the work!
FRED AND HIS WIFE ARE NOW A PART OF OUR TEAM.
He has done great things ... We thank God for his goodness every day and we know that the breakthrough is coming. The last couple of weeks we have met with our coworkers to pray for Gods intervention, the job is so big and we need a genuine outpour, we will go for nothing less and we will PUSH.
PUSH MEANS: PRAY UNTIL SOMETHING HAPPENS!
On this page I will share some of the highlights from the last couple of months. As you see we have had several things to celebrate. In May we had our first official baptism service. We baptized three new believers. In June Karen and I celebrated 25 years of marriage, our silver anniversary, which is quite an acchievement in these days where people dont honor what God has instituted.
I thank God for our marriage and our family. God has been faithful and His WORD has been WORKING in our lives through out the years. Another achievement was our son Hector that got his GED which means that he is ready for further education here in the US. He will start in college in October. And our son Noah that celebrated his 15 years birthday in July and got his learners permit which is unbelievable for us (in our home country you have to be 18 in order to drive a car). This summer we also celebrated 12 years anniversary together with Legacy Life Church that has been supporting us and sending us out to plant the Powerhouse church on OBT in the downtown area of Orlando. I am an ordained minister from this church and at the the anniversary I got ordained by apostle Joshua Fowler for another year

Powerhouse meeting in our private home SINCE POWERHOUSE CHURCH DOESN´T HAVE A CHURCH BUILDING WE MEET IN PRIVATE HOMES. THIS MONTH WE HAD A MEETING WITH PASTOR RON JOHNSON FROM LONGWOOD WHICH HAS BEEN LIKE A FATHER TO US HERE IN ORLANDO. HE SHARED A POWERFUL MESSAGE, MINISTERED WITH PROPHETIC WORDS AND WAS A GREAT ENCOURAGEMENT TO EVERYBODY.
AUGUST 24TH I WAS AT A GRAND OPRY IN MICANOPY CLOSE TO OCALA TOGETHER WITH JAYCE HAROLD WHO IS THE HOST OF THE SHOW. THEY ASKED ME TO SING SOME OF OUR WORSHIP SONGS EVEN THOUGH IT WAS ALL COUNTRY WESTERN. I DIN´T REALLY KNOW HOW TO FIT IN BUT GOD WAS IN THE HOUSE AND THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS MOVING. PEOPLE WOULDN´T LET ME LEAVE AND I PROMISED THAT - IF GOD WILLS - I WILL BE BACK!

Rev. Reinhard Bonnke CFAN
Great days with CFAN For us to be in Orlando it is like being close to family. Rev. Reinhard Bonnke has his CFAN (Christ for All Nations) office here and as many of you will know I have been connected with his ministry thorough my spiritual Mum Teresia Wairimu long before we started ministry here in the US. Whenever she is here preaching for Bonnke she wants me to be around and last time was at the School of Evangelism where she wanted me to share about the Power of Impartation. She would talk about how she met Bonnke and how he laid hans on her an initialized her ministry - and I would share how I met Teresia Wairimu and how she laid hands on me and how
this initialized our ministry in a way that I would never have imagined. I feel like a little drop in the ocean when I am there but I am happy that I am still a part of the wave. We pray for revival among the homeless people on OBT, that God will start a wave that will sweep the street and touch the people in need. Thank you for your prayers and support. Yours in the Kingdom, Christian Hedegaard Evangelist by the great grace of God.
