       At the time of the Summit '92 Meetings all the leadership Teamworks underwent some major changes, as the Lord led to have some of the leaders leave their former fields to join other Teamworks in different parts of the World. Toward the end of the Summit Meeting, at one of the Sunday Fellowships, there was an ORDINATION CEREMONY for the new Teamworks. At this ceremony Peter & Gary prayed very sweet & loving prayers over each Teamwork, & after each prayer there was a time of hearing from the Lord for that particular Teamwork. In this two-part series of FSMs are published the prophecies that were given for the different Teamworks, & their prospective Areas.
       You may notice that the number of prophecies given for each Teamwork or Area varies quite a bit--some Areas received many prophecies, while other Areas received fewer. Please don't judge the importance of the field by the number of prophecies that they received, because this would NOT be an accurate measurement. There are many possible reasons why the Lord would say more or less about the different fields.
       For example, the Brazilian Teamwork received fewer prophecies in this particular session, however in another session the Lord gave a number of specific instructional prophecies for the Brazilian work & what course of action to take in light of the recent persecution there. Because of security we can't publish these at this time. Another example is Europe.--Although so MUCH is happening in Europe, & in Eastern Europe especially, you'll notice that likewise there were not SO many prophecies given for the European Teamwork. The reason for this could possibly be because the Lord has ALREADY said so much about that field, & He doesn't need to keep repeating that message over & over. On the other hand, the work in the U.S. is experiencing a whole new start, with new ministries that the Lord is launching us into, & therefore there was much more for the Lord to explain when speaking about the North American Teamwork.--Plus, North America has been under the stigma of being somewhat "uncomely" in the past, & so obviously the Lord felt the need to pour on EXTRA encouragement! (1Cor.12:23,24) But the fact that the North American Teamwork received more prophecies than the European Teamwork does NOT signify that North America is more important than Europe, for example. We certainly can't judge the importance that the Lord places on Areas or people by the number of prophecies He gives.
       We pray these prophecies will be a blessing to you, give you greater VISION for your field & the whole World, & encourage you & speak to you as you apply the instruction herein to your own personal life. GBY! WLY!
       (Just a little clarification: These proph-ecies have been slightly EDITED for clarity & the King James English has been corrected & polished.)


       (Fam:) "Be strong & of a good courage, for I the Lord shall fashion you as tools in My hand to win this battle! For I have yet many people to win in this land, & I shall cause the wrath of Man to praise Me! And as ye praise Me, I shall give unto you the victory. For I have brought you through these times of testings & squeezings & breakings that ye might shine forth as an example to the believers--in your word, in your conversation, in your spirit, in your faith & in your purity. For I am well pleased that you have dedicated your lives unto Me. Therefore, FEAR NOT to go forth into the battle, for I have already ordained that ye should win it, that ye should strengthen My little ones there, & that ye will show unto them the sample of a true Shepherd that lays down his life for the flock. Fear not to lay down your lives for the flock, for I shall be with you each step of the way. For I have ordered this battle, & I have prepared you for this day."

       (Fam:) "Walk worthy of the vocation wherein ye are called, for I will be with you, & I will strengthen you, & I will lead you, & I will guide you. As I was with Moses in days of old, so shall I be with you in these modern times. For ye shall go forth conquering & to conquer, & though the hosts against you may be many, forget not the story of My Gideon, who with such a small band was able to turn the tide against such a large, innumerable number of enemies that came against him. For when ye are small in your own sight, then I shall be magnified within you. If ye shall lift Me up, I will draw all men unto Me. For yea, your strength is indeed small, but that which is SMALL in the sight of MAN is very GREAT in MY eyes, for when ye are nothing, then I can show My strength through you. Do not think about the battle before you, but think upon Me, & the strength which I have & that I can give unto you.
       "Do not neglect your time with Me, for ye shall surely need the Words of David to strengthen your heart, to strengthen your spirit, to strengthen your faith & to be the ensample to the flock that I would have you to be. For ye must be My ambassadors! Ye must be those that show forth the love of your King & Queen. For I have chosen you because you have loved your King & your Queen with all your hearts, & ye are faithful ambassadors of the Words of David. Therefore I have entrusted you with the great privilege of showing that love to those who ye must be Shepherds over.
       "Hold forth the Words of David, for they are the Words of Life! They shall be Life & Light to many, & they shall be fatness & marrow to your bones, & ye shall also be strengthened. For as ye shall pour forth & water the thirsty & the hungry, ye shall be watered & fed yourselves. Fear not them which kill the body, but cannot kill the soul, but rather fear Him which can destroy both soul & body in Hell."

       (Fam:) "Behold, these go forth conquering & to conquer! These go forth as vessels fit for their Master's use!"

       (Fam:) "For ye shall go forth as the mighty men of David, & ye shall stop the mouths of lions by My power!"

       (Fam:) "In quietness & confidence shall be your strength, & in returning & rest ye shall be saved. Put on the whole armour of God that ye may be able to stand."

       (Fam:) "I know your works: behold, I have set before you an open door, & no man can shut it. For you have a little strength, & have kept My Word, & have not denied My Name."--Rev.3:8.

       (Fam:) I saw a vision of the big statue of Jesus in Rio on the hill with His arms out, & I got the verse, "My presence shall go with thee, & I will give thee rest."--Exo.33:14. It was like He was there hovering over the Work.

       (Fam:) I also got the picture of the big statue of Jesus along with the verse, "Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the World."--1Jn.4:4.

       (Fam:) I got Isa.41:10: "Fear thou not, for I am with thee. Be not dismayed for I am thy God. I will strengthen thee, yea, I will help thee, yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness." (Someone else also received the same verse.)
       And I got a picture of Mary with Jesus, & Jesus said that she had chosen the good part, to sit at His feet & learn of Him.

       (Fam:) I got a variation of the verse about the three-fold cord, only I got it as a five-fold cord is not easily broken.

       (Fam:) I got the same verse, only it was, "A many-fold cord."

       (Fam:) I got, "One can chase a thousand, but two can put ten thousand to flight."

       Firstly the Lord confirmed our staying in Brazil despite the persecution, saying, "I have yet many people to win in this land." He said we should go forth to conquer & we would win the battles, & the persecution would only serve to be the wrath of Man praising the Lord. The Lord told us not to fear our enemies, & that we should not even look so much at the battles or the persecution, but keep our eyes on the Lord. He said He would give us the victory over our enemies, & that even though we are weak & small & have little strength, He would strengthen us & turn the tide in the battle.
       He said He was pleased with us as Shepherds for the different breakings & testings & squeezings we'd been through. The Lord told us to be "ensamples" & "examples" to the flock & to lay down our lives for the sheep.
       A couple of people had a vision of the huge statue of Jesus & the verses, "Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the World" & "My presence shall go with you." It's kind of like even though we are small, He will be with us. The statue is so big & all encompassing. He said to be strong & of good courage. It seemed like a promise that He's going to take care of us no matter what. He said to "Fear not, for I am with thee" three or four times. We have to fight the fear of persecution there.
       There were a couple of things about a multi-fold cord not being easily broken, signifying our really being UNITED as a team.
       The Lord said not to neglect our time with Him, because we would need the Words of David to strengthen our heart & faith to be the ensamples to the flock He would have us to be.


       (Fam:) "Faithful is He Who calleth you, Who also will do it! Only be strong & very courageous that ye may observe to do according to all the law which Moses, My servant, commanded you. Turn not from it to the right hand nor to the left, that ye may prosper whithersoever ye go. This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but ye shall meditate therein day & night, that ye may observe to do according to all that is written therein. For then ye shall make your way prosperous, & then ye shall have good success. Have not I commanded you, be strong & of a good courage, be not afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you, whithersoever ye go!"

       (Fam:) "Go forth in the power of My might! For ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, & I have ordained you to go forth & bear fruit. But ye must remember that when you feel weak, My strength will be made perfect in you. For My grace will be sufficient for you in those days."

       (Gary:) "Behold, I shall give you the heathen for your inheritance, & the uttermost part of your kingdom for your possession if ye will be faithful to Me! For truly I have many in those lands who know Me not, who cry not out to Me, but whose hearts are Mine, whose children are Mine. Yea, not after the flesh have they been born into My Kingdom, but after the Spirit shall I call them. The weapons of your warfare are not carnal nor fleshly, but spiritual, mighty to the pulling down of the strongholds that exist in their lives. If ye will be faithful, & those in your command shall be faithful, I shall give you the heathen for your inheritance, & they shall be brought before Me. And ye shall be brought before Me & shall rejoice together in My Kingdom, that I may say unto you, `Well done, good & faithful servants, enter into the joy of your Lord!' For ye have been found faithful with a few things, & yea, I have placed you over cities & kingdoms. Ye shalt rule for millenniums, for upon these small wheels do great things turn. Despise not the day of small things nor small ones, for out of you shall be GREAT ones. Ye also shall be made great in the sight of your Lord. If ye will be faithful unto death, ye shall receive a crown of life that fadeth not away!"

       (Peter:) "Because you were small in your own sight, I have greatly exalted you! Behold, I have heard your prayers, I have seen your tears, I will heal you, & I will strengthen you. Look ye not unto the arm of the flesh, but look unto the Lord your God for your strength. For if ye will set your face upon Me, I will give you strength that ye know not of, & I will empower you from on high, that ye might win nation upon nation, for I, the Lord, have spoken it!"

       (Fam:) "I have yet many children of David that need to be born unto Me. I have Indian children of David, & I have Asian children of David, & I have Chinese children of David. I have many children of David yet to be born unto Me. For that great work that has been started there, I will complete it until the End. Fear not, for I am with you, be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yea, I will help you, yea, I will uphold you with the right hand of My righteousness."

       (Fam:) "Ye have come unto Me tattered & torn & bruised, but I have healed up your wounds. I have anointed you with the salve of My Spirit. I have comforted you. I have drawn you close to My bosom, but not for your own selves only. Look not at your stature nor think that ye have little strength. For indeed, ye do have little strength, but I will strengthen you, & I will help you. I will be your strength & your shield & your buckler*. For are there not many children of David in your care who need you & need all that I have given unto you? Therefore, look not to yourselves, but look unto Me, for I will strengthen you & enlighten you with all that I have yet to give unto you.
       "Take into your bosom all the love that I have for you, & take unto your sores & unto your wounds & unto your broken hearts the salve of My Spirit, & let it strengthen you. For ye shall walk in My anointing, & ye shall do great & mighty things that ye know not of, because I have gone before you, & I have anointed you by My Spirit. Be not afraid, but just believe in My Power & My Spirit & know that ye are LOVED & that ye are NEEDED. Ye are needed by Me, & also by many who will seek after you as Shepherds.
       "Because ye have been small, ye have come to Me for My Words. Use these Words that I have given unto you to give to others, & give not SPARINGLY, but give WHOLEHEARTEDLY. Give & give & it shall be given unto you. I will not cease to pour out unto you My Spirit & My Words, that ye may feed & so fulfil the desire of your heart to do the most for your father David that ye would do."

(Fam:) "Ye shall hear a word beside you saying, `This is the way, walk ye in it.' Take heed that ye hearken unto the Words that I speak unto you. For in the land to which you go, ye must stay close to Me. For yea, there are many troubles & many fords* to cross, there are many rivers to cross, but as you cross them, I will be with you, if ye will stay by My side. I will never leave nor forsake you, nor will I let you down, nor will I not be there when you need Me. For YE have always been there when I needed YOU. Therefore, I shall not fail you, for I am the faithful One, I am the Lord your God Who hath said it & will do it! Yea, it is I that send you forth. But before I put you forth, I have sent My Angels & My Messengers before you to prepare the way. For ye shall do VALIANTLY in the battles ahead! Ye shall be My mighty men of valour! Yea, though ye are meek of spirit, ye shall be called My LION-HEARTED, My strong ones, for I will strengthen you, & I will give unto you the strength & the power that you need.
       "But you must hearken unto the Words of David! Let them not fall to the ground, for ye must CHERISH them & hold them within your bosom. Ye must spend time with Me to hear the Words that I would speak unto you. For ye must hear My Voice & ye must hear My Words giving you your directions. Though ye have wisdom & though ye have talents & strength, without ME ye are nothing. If ye would assay* to go forth without the power & the strength & the direction & the leading & the Word & the guidance of your father David, & of the Words that I give unto you, & of My Holy Spirit, ye will FALL. But if ye will hearken unto Me & listen to Me & do the things which I command you, & if you will sit in quietness & solitude & wait until I speak unto you, that your bottle shall be full to overflowing, then shall ye be PROSPEROUS, & ye shall go forth & WIN the battle! And I will be proud of you, & I will give you many kisses of David in that day."

       (Fam:) "I will give you the keys of the Kingdom, even the key of David, which is all the Words of David that I have given."

       (Fam:) "Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, & ordained you, that ye should go & bring forth fruit, & that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in My Name, He may give it you."--John 15:16.

       (Fam:) "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, & not of us."--2Cor.4:7. (Two others received the same verse.)

       (Fam:) "For it is God which worketh in you, both to will & to do of His good pleasure."--Phil.2:13.

       (Fam:) I got the verse, "God hath chosen the weak things of the World to confound the mighty!"--1Cor.1:27. The emphasis was on CONFOUND.

       (Fam:) When the Lord was giving the verses about staying close & following, I had a little picture of you walking through a jungle. There may have been other people there too, & there were creatures on either side. It seemed like if you stayed right on the path, that the Lord was going to lead you right between everything & the victory was at the end, but if you got off the path a little bit, you'd fall in the swamp.

       (Fam:) I got the verse, "Though ye have lien among the pots, yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, & her feathers with yellow gold."--Psa.68:13. Also, "Although there are many afflictions, I will deliver you from them all," like a blessing for your health.

       (Fam:) When Gary was praying about the different heathen lands, I saw a picture of one of those real big Buddhas. I don't know if Gary said those words in his prayer or whether I just heard it, but I heard, "Fear not!" Then I saw a stone flying through the air & it hit the Buddha right in the forehead, kind of like the stone that hit Goliath.
       I got the words from "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God," Martin Luther's song: "One little Word shall fell* him!" The verse goes, "And though this World with devils filled, should threaten to undo us, we will not fear, for God hath willed His Truth to triumph through us: The Prince of Darkness grim--we tremble not for him; his rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure, one little Word shall fell him!"--All these spiritual demons. It was a very shiny idol, something awesome that people were proud of, but this little Stone came & zapped it!

       (Fam:) I got the story of Pandita Ramabai. She was weak & sick, but she was willing to strap on the backpack & go up into the mountains; & because of that, many were saved. (See ML#215.)

       (Fam:) When the prophecy was given, "I will give you the heathen for your inheritance," I got a picture of a dark land, but then the light was shining through the clouds, like the Lord's Light breaking through. I also got the verse, "The Lord will perfect that which concerneth thee."--Psa.138:8

       (Fam:) First of all I got the verse, "So that all they which dwelt in Asia heard the Word of the Lord Jesus."--Acts 19:10.--That because of your faithfulness to get out the Words, all of Asia heard the Word. At the same time I got the picture from the Letter "The Goddesses" (ML#224), where the Indian goddess & goddesses of different Asian countries were dancing & rejoicing for the Words of David. It was really sweet!

       (Gary:) I had an impression that it was a real spiritual battle. It wasn't so evident outwardly, but in the SPIRIT it was VERY evident. Then right about the time the Lord gave the phrase in someone's prophecy about being "lion-hearted," I saw these figures appear, & it was you! You were really big & muscular & handsome, & really beautiful. It looked like you had real long flowing hair & robes of fur or something, like a gladiator type, but in a real sweet godly spirit, not in a fleshly way. People were coming to you, maybe the Family or others. It was real beautiful, about being lion-hearted.

       (Peter:) I got the story of when Samuel came to anoint David. Each of the sons of Jesse came before him, & then they said the youngest one was out keeping the sheep, but that he didn't count so much. That's when the Lord said to Samuel, "Man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh upon the heart."--1Sam.16:7.

       The Lord emphasised & stressed quite a number of times that it was very important that we stay close to Him through His Word. He said: "Take heed that ye hearken unto the Words that I speak unto you. For in the land to which you go, you must stay close to Me. But you must hearken unto the Words of David. Let them not fall to the ground, for you must cherish them & hold them within your bosom. You must spend time with Me to hear the Words that I would speak unto you. You must hear My Words giving you your directions. If ye sit in quietness & solitude & wait until I speak unto you, your bottle shall be full to overflowing!"
       And along with the need to stay close to the Lord through His Word came a warning about not leaning to the arm of the flesh: "Look ye not unto the arm of the flesh. Though you have wisdom & though you have talents & strength, without Me, ye are nothing. If ye go forth without the power & the strength & the Words that I give unto you, ye shall fall."
       Concerning our shepherding He said: "I have comforted you, I have drawn you close to My bosom, but not for your own selves only. Take unto your bosom all the love that I have for you, for there are many children of David in your care who need you & all that I have given to you!"
       He also encouraged us to be full of faith, saying, "Have not I commanded you, be strong & of a good courage! Fear not, for I am with you, be not dismayed, for I am your God. Look not at your stature nor think that ye have little strength. For indeed ye do have little strength, but I will strengthen you & I will help you!"
       For our Area & Work He said over & over how these were dark lands & that there are many troubles & that we needed to follow Him closely as it is a real spiritual battle. Also that it may not be so evident outwardly, but in the Spirit it is very evident. He promised, though, that He would give us the heathen for our inheritance if we will be faithful.--Faithful just to feed others & to despise not the day of small things. He also said that there are yet many children of David that need to be born--Indian, Asian & Chinese. He promised that what He has started, He would complete to the end.
       Other promises He made concerning the Work were that just one Word (Jesus) will fell the demons & that we shouldn't in any way be afraid. Also, that before He puts us forth, He will send His Angels & His Messengers before us to prepare the way.
       Last of all, someone got the verse about all of Asia hearing the Word, & that the goddess of India & different Asian goddesses were dancing & rejoicing for the Words of David!
       He gave the story of Pandita Ramabai, that though she was weak & sick, she was still willing to strap the backpack on her back & go up into the mountains, & because of that, many were saved.


       (Fam:) "By the obedience & faith of one shall many be made righteous, & by the faith of many shall multitudes of precious children that belong to Me, come to Me."

       (Fam:) "Does this task seem difficult for you? Yes, this task does seem difficult for you, ye know not where to begin or how to start in this calling that I have set before you. But I have been sent to walk amongst you & make you an instrument fitly joined together by My Spirit, & I will melt you & mold you together, & if ye will look to Me & acknowledge amongst yourselves the Spirit of God within each other, then ye shall be a team fitly joined together by My Spirit. For what God hath put together let no man put asunder."

       (Gary:) "I have chosen you to go forth to tend My tender plants, for I have set you in the garden of God that ye might pick the fruit thereof. But BEFORE the harvest, I have set you over the nations that ye shall go forth & root out & pull down & destroy the old, that ye might plant, & that the harvest might be bountiful & more fruitful than ever before. For ye must root out of the hearts of those who have not yet come unto Me, those obstacles which stand in the way. As ye know, a root in a dry land doth not come forth easily, but it is in your hand to do so. You must take the step that the land may be cleared for the sowing. Yea, some seed, others water, but I the Lord shall bring forth the harvest. But ye must go about it in this manner, for MORE land must be cleared in the hearts of those who love Me. Ye must root out, ye must pull down & ye must destroy that which defiles My land. For I the Lord your God am a jealous God, & I will have no other gods before Me!
       "But if ye will do this & will follow in this way, you will prosper, & your land will prosper & your fruit & your harvest shall be great, greater than you could imagine. Though the land has been cleared & sown, ye must clear OTHER acres, yea, hectares which stand which could be reaped if they were but broken. Therefore break up the fallow* ground & make it ready for the planting, & the harvest shall be great, more than you can imagine!"

       (Fam:) "Behold, I do a new thing! For it is a new day & a new start as in a new land for you, & not only a new day for YOU, but a new start for this LAND that I love.--This land that your Father David has loved & prayed for, lo, these many years. I do a new thing. Therefore go in the Spirit of My might! Go, stand & speak to the people all the Words of this life & of your Father David, for I will anoint you & I will bless you & I will strengthen you. Therefore trust in Me, & as ye proclaim My Name, I will strengthen & anoint thee with the power of My might. Say not, `I am but a child,' but look unto Me & ye will be enlightened by My Spirit. Trust in Me, commit your work unto Me & I promise you that I will bring it to pass."

       (Fam:) "Blessed are you children, for unto you have been given exceeding great & precious promises that ye might be partakers of My divine nature. If ye abide in Me & My Words abide in you, ye shall not only know the Truth, but ye shall have the strength & power & wisdom & discernment & love to win this land for Me. For have I not said, `Stand back & see Me fight' & will I not do it? Delight yourself in the Lord, & He will give you all the desires of your heart. Delight in My Word day & night, & ye shall be like a tree planted by the rivers that shall bring forth fruit, & his leaves shall not wither & whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. Lift up your heads, O ye gates, be ye lifted up, ye everlasting gates, & the King of Glory shall lead on! Who is this King of Glory? The Lord mighty & strong! Lift up your heads, O ye gates, & be lifted up, O ye everlasting gates, & the King of Glory shall lead on! Who is this King of Glory? The Lord of Hosts, He is the King of Glory!"

       (Fam:) "Behold, I send you forth into a land which is very precious unto Me. For I have many children there & ye shall lead them unto Me. I will send you into the land which this World calls THIRD, but in My eyes it is FIRST, for it is very precious unto My heart. For is it not given unto the POOR of this World to be RICH IN FAITH? For though they have not reaped the carnal things of this Earth, ye shall bestow unto them the SPIRITUAL things which ye have in your power to give unto them.--Faith & hope & charity.
       "These are people of a tender heart & of simple understanding, but ye shall lead & guide them into the wisdom of David. And though they are simple, they shall become wise; & though they be weak in the eyes of the World, they shall be STRONG in the eyes of the SPIRIT. For what I call STRONG the WORLD calls WEAK, & what the World calls WEAK, I call STRONG! For yea, I shall give them the GIFT OF FAITH & I shall give unto them the keys of the Kingdom of God.
       "For the Kingdom of God is not meat & drink or physical or carnal things, but it is love & hope & understanding, wisdom from above & brotherly love. Ye will find it in the hearts of these My children in these Latin countries, for I have reserved them as a special kingdom unto Me, as a special section of My garden, for they are tender & beloved plants. They are not yet full grown, but they are sprouting & they are coming forth from the ground which has been sowed these many years.
       "I send you forth as strong teachers & labourers, as leaders & as those who understand among the people & shall instruct many. For I have given unto you the gifts which are needed for this particular calling of this field. For I am the Good Farmer & I understand the land & the soil & the ingredients & the weather & all the things that cause the harvest to grow & to be plentiful. I understand these things & therefore I know when it is time to bestow a different fertiliser upon the crops that are growing up in My Kingdom & in My garden. So I have chosen you & the things that have been taught unto you these many years, to bring you forth unto this time that ye may combine your talents & work together as one, to be that which I need for this garden in this part of My Kingdom. For it is very precious unto Me & is very beloved unto your Father.
       "I will even instruct you in the tongue & the language of this people. Therefore, fear not, for I shall raise up those that can speak for you. I will help you & instruct you in this way. If ye will yield your members unto Me, I will surprise you with the gifts that I will bestow upon you! You will bloom & blossom in My Garden, as well as the plants that you will nurture & tend. For when the teacher teaches, is he not taught himself? When the sower sows, does he not receive benefits of the sowing himself? You will also grow in love & faith as ye sow these gifts & virtues unto those that are under you.
       "For I have chosen you for this special task! Ye have the talents, ye have the anointing, & that which ye have not, ye WILL have when the time comes. For it is your Father that does this thing & not you yourselves. Therefore look not at yourselves, nor at the things ye have, nor at the things you were. But look unto Me & the things that ye will be.
       "Walk ye in the ways of your father David, hearken unto His Words & take them into your bosom. For this surely is the greatest gift that I have given unto you, & that is the Words of David, & ye surely can take them & cherish them & feed upon them, & as ye feed upon them to overflowing, ye will bestow those same blessings upon those you come in contact with.
       "But ye must be willing to go into the fields. Ye must be willing to go & meet My sheep. Ye must be willing to nurture & tenderly care for them. And though it may be difficult at times, & though ye must get your hands dirty & it does require labouring under the hot sun & in the heat, & ye must toil with some of the labours that will be laid upon you, & ye must work as the farmer tilleth the field & sweats by the sweat of his brow, yet ye will see the FRUIT of your labours & ye will rejoice that your God has chosen you & called you & brought you forth to tend this part of His garden!
       "Therefore keep the garden of your own hearts. With all diligence keep your hearts, for out of your heart proceedeth the issues of life. For I have made you an instrument fitly tooled & joined together. For ye will surely be one.--A sharp-toothed threshing instrument that will reap the harvest after ye have toiled in the fields. Therefore I will mold you & make you into that which ye must be. For these are the Words of thy father David & they shall come to pass."

       (Fam:) I saw a beautiful vision of all the nationals lined up like a big army--beautiful, beautiful Family Members, specific people in South America that I could see in the vision, all beaming as a big army. They had special badges & rewards & designations on their uniforms because they were so faithful to the Lord. The Lord Himself was there giving them special honours & rewards as real frontline soldiers for having been so faithful to witness His Words all these years, even without much training or guidance or shepherding, especially in years past. The Lord considered them real honour students & He was very very proud of them, & the Teamwork was standing off to the side watching the Lord Himself reward them abundantly for being faithful to get out the Words all these years.

       (Fam:) "Have I not called you & will I not do it? I have called you by your name, for ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, & ordained you, that ye should go & bring forth fruit, & that your fruit shall remain. Yea, your fruit SHALL remain. But ye must look unto Me & your faces will not be ashamed, for I will lead & guide you & hold you with My right hand. So fear not, for I am with you, & be not dismayed, for I will lead & guide your steps & I will be with you, for I have chosen you & I will lead you & I will guide you. Just look unto Me & hold onto Me."

       (Fam:) "Behold the lilies of the field, lilies of those who have grown up in adversity, for they toil not, neither do they spin, yet your Heavenly Father feedeth them. Are they not much more arrayed than even all of Solomon's glory? Take no thought what ye shall eat or what ye shall drink, for after all these things do the Gentiles seek. But seek ye first the Kingdom of God & His righteousness, & all these things shall be added unto you. Store not up for yourselves treasures on Earth, where moth & rust doth corrupt, but store up for yourselves treasure in Heaven, for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."
       I also got a picture of Juan being taken out of the garden & all of the plants in the garden being quite frightened & shocked. But a fear of the Lord was instilled & the Lord looked really pleased, because it was part of His plan to draw them closer to Him & that they would have more faith in the Lord's Words. Something had been taken away from them, beloved to them, but it was the Lord's plan to make them stronger in a fear of the Lord that they could see the same Spirit coming through others, the same things that the Lord had been giving to them through Juan. (Note: Juan has been called to work in a different Area.)

       (Fam:) "Behold, I will bind you with the golden threads of My Love, I will put the golden threads of My Love around you again & again & again, & I will make you into a vesture* fitly joined together for My use--perfectly designed for this job. For behold, I have chosen you. Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, & I have ordained you individually for this place which I have prepared for you, & ye shall grow together into a strong tree that shall bear much fruit. As ye walk together in one accord, step by step, ye shall be a great sample unto the nations & all shall look unto you & there will be a great moving amongst the people. And none will say, `I am of this tribe, & I am of that tribe.' But they shall all be joined together in one great Kingdom & they shall all say, `We are of the Kingdom of God, the Kingdom of David. We are ONE nation & His banner over us is Love!'
       "Fear not, neither worry about your own incapabilities, for it is not of you, it is of Me. It is not in you, it is only in Me. It is only in Me that you will find the strength & the wisdom & the inspiration & vision & love that you need to do this job. But beware that ye fall not into the snare of the opinions of men or the traditions of men or the traditions of the lands into which I send you. For there is great danger that the traditions of men shall make the Word of God of none effect. Look unto Me & the laws of MY land & base your decisions upon MY Word & ye will have great success. Be not entangled with the opinions of men or the traditions of the land or the ways of the past or your own carnal ways of seeing things, but look unto Me. For I will do a new thing & I will reveal it unto you only step by step.
       "Bear ye one another's burdens & so shall ye fulfil My law, & so shall ye be a great testimony unto others. And so shall ye encourage others to bear their burdens & bear the burdens of one another & strengthen the land by & by*."

       (Fam:) I saw these threads of different colours that were woven into a tapestry, & this tapestry was used to wrap up something really beautiful. Then I saw another piece of material with the same colours & similar threads & different quantities, but still the same colours that were used for this cloth that was to be laid on the table to feed the household. And yet another cloth with the same threads in different quantities, but the same colours, was used to wipe the floor, to clean the house. It was always the same threads in different quantities to make different pieces of cloth & material for different uses.--But all for the purpose of serving the people, cleaning & binding & healing & caring.

       (Gary:) During that last prophecy I had a vision too. There were five people tied together at the ankles. They were side by side, like a sack race where you have to struggle along, & it's hard enough with TWO! At first as the five people were trying to move ahead, some moved faster & some moved slower
, & of course they all fell & tripped up & it was quite awkward. But it got to a point where the ones who were going faster slowed down, & the ones that were going slower sped up, until they were moving in real harmony, & they kept gaining more & more speed & going faster & faster. It wasn't like they were running, but they were moving real fast & it was majestic. It was almost like a movie where all the cowboys come marching out, in perfect unity & unison. They were bound together. At first the ropes were quite loose around their ankles & they thought that it would be helpful, but it wasn't. As the tighter the ropes were on their ankles, the more it helped them to get in step & harmony.

       (Fam:) I saw all these big limp pieces of cloth & then a big tailor's needle with a long piece of thread on it starting to weave in & out between all these pieces of cloth, & bind them together in different ways. And as the thread was pulled tighter, the pieces of cloth were pulled tighter too & became like a quilt. Then I rose above the picture for a bird's-eye view, & it became a beautiful farm & all these quilt-like pieces were different types of fields & different kinds of crops, real fruitful, growing in all these patchwork areas of fields.

       (Fam:) I got the quote that says, "Little is much if God is in it," & the verse, "If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, `Remove hence to yonder place', & it shall remove."--Mat.17:20. God is not looking on what you don't have, but what you do have. That grain of mustard seed is a very small thing with which God is going to do very great things.

       (Fam:) I got, "Though I speak with the tongues of men & of Angels & have not Love, it profiteth me nothing." I was getting that it didn't matter if we don't know the language, but that the most important gift is Love, & that was what the Lord wanted us to use to communicate & share with the Family.

       (Juan:) I saw a vision of an Olympic stadium, like Dad described in "Run the Race." (ML#1374, DB1) It started with Katrina running a relay race, & then I saw Singin' Sam running around & all the people in the stands were cheering. Different beautiful people that have helped to lead the Latin American Work there were running. Then Faithy had the baton & she passed it to me & I was running. All of a sudden my energy started failing, I started going slower than I should. And finally I passed the baton to Abi & the whole stadium rose & cheered because they could see that because of my passing the baton on to her, the victory would be won. I saw a vision of Mama sitting there smiling, & it gave me the peace to know that I just needed to pass that baton on to Abi to finish the South American race since I've been called to work elsewhere.

       (Fam:) I had a vision of this Teamwork going to war, & the Lord came down & was giving each one of them a sword to carry, & the Lord gave Abi this really really really big sword. I was asking the Lord about it, because it didn't look very practical. Everybody was ready to go into battle, & the impression that I had was that hers wasn't really to fight in the hand-to-hand combat, but it was to be a symbol to lead the people & to direct the way. Her large sword was more to just hold up to show everybody the direction to go.

       (Fam:) I saw a vision of a water faucet, & how we are supposed to be like that. The Lord's Spirit is the water & inside the tap were gears, & each gear was like one member of the Teamwork. The Lord was controlling the flow. He wasn't only controlling the flow of the water, but each of the gears of the Teamwork inside was like a different part of the liquid fertiliser that was going out, & He would control according to which way the tap was turned for whatever the need. He would control what was going to flow out, & the gardens & fields really became beautiful.

       (Fam:) I had a little picture of the Teamwork dressed up like the Spanish conquerors, & I got the verse, "But these are more than conquerors!"--Meaning the mission that they are being sent on is so much more important than the earthly mission of the Spanish conquerors, & that the Lord is going to do mighty wonders through this conquering team.

       (Fam:) I got, "Grace, grace, grace is poured unto thy lips," & "the Lord will give grace & glory."

       (Fam:) I saw a picture of the Teamwork being like the golden strings on a big golden harp being played for the Lord, & as they were plucked in harmony, it was really pleasing to the Lord.

       (Fam:) I got, "For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not!"

       (Fam:) Earlier on in the prophecies those words came to me about "I will wrap My golden threads of Love around You." It was right after Peter was praying, & at the same time I had a vision of these golden threads going around the Teamwork, & then they turned into a golden candelabra--five candles, one main taller candle in the center & two shorter ones on each side. It seemed to me to be a confirmation of what Peter was praying about Abi being the one who can lead the way through the wisdom that the Lord has given her. At the same time I got the words "My Brunheld" & "My Joan of Arc," which I guess kind of goes along with the vision of her holding up the big sword.
       Later when different prophecies came about their feeling incapable, the verse came to me, "When they saw the boldness of Peter & John & perceived that they were unlearned & ignorant men, they marvelled, & took knowledge of them that they had been with Jesus."--Acts 4:13. Also I got a feeling or impression that there will be more battles in the future in South America with the System, but the idea was that while they (our enemies) are playing with matches, we have lightning bolts, & I got the Letter "They Can't Stop Our Rain!" (ML#128)

       (Peter:) When I first started to pray, the words came to me very clearly & strongly, "Abigail, beloved of David." Also in prophecy, when someone started to say, "I give unto you...", I got the end of the sentence, "...the keys of the Kingdom," & I saw a little picture like in the military when they have a ceremony & the commanding officer turns the flag & the command over to the next guy who's coming. It was like a picture of Juan handing the Teamwork this big key, passing on the authority & the job while he was going on to something else. PTL!

       (Fam:) About Juan passing the baton over, I got that because Juan had been faithful with a few things, the Lord was going to make him ruler over many. It was like the things that he learned in tilling the one field, he was going to use in another field.

The South American Leadership's Interpretation & Application of the Prophecies Given for Them & Their Area:

       We broke the overall vision into a few different categories. A number of times the Lord said that if we abide in Him & His Words abide in us, then we will be successful.
       There was also the vision that someone had about going forth to battle carrying swords, & especially Abi having a very large sword, like the sword of the Spirit. We took it to mean that the sword was the Word, & that the big sword was like an ensign to rally people around the Word & draw people close to the Lord through the Word.
       There were a number of references about looking to the Lord & He would do it. Whether it was winning the battle or a bountiful harvest or whatever, it was from looking to the Lord first.
       There were quite a few places where the Work was paralleled with a field or a garden or land, & there were quite a few references to labouring or toiling in the field. One place it said to go into the fields & meet the sheep. There were a couple of places where it referred to it that way, & that it's going to take a lot of visitation.
       There was reference to clearing the fields & rooting out the old & planting the new, referring to the changes coming about. There was one reference to being sure our hearts were clear as well. So it's a personal thing, as well as a reference to the field as a whole.
       There were a number of times that the Lord said specifically how He loves the South American people. In one prophecy He said, "This land that your father David has loved & prayed for, lo, these many years." The prophecies also mentioned there are many of the Lord's children there, & they are fruitful lands & there will be a bountiful harvest.
       The Lord was also indicating that with all the changes, it may be a little difficult at first for those on the field to hear about Juan moving on, but it was for a reason, & that this would draw them closer to the Lord. There were beautiful prophecies about Juan passing on the baton, & it being passed on from one to the other, especially into Abi's hands to lead the Teamwork.
       The Lord brought out that in our Teamwork we all have different gifts & talents & abilities, but the Lord would bind us all together. One was the vision about the different threads which were different colours & quantities. As they were woven together into different types of cloth, they would be used to serve the field in different manners, such as a dishcloth, a tablecloth etc. It kind of indicated how the Lord could use us as a team in different areas & different ways. It takes all of our different talents together, but all for the use of serving the field, which is the purpose of it all.
       There was also the vision of the patchwork cloth being sewn together by the tailor's needle. We took that to mean that the different countries in our Area were being bound together & unified. It was like the unity of the Teamwork correlating to the unity of the field & nations.
       There was another prophecy about being bound together with threads of Love. Maybe that thread of Love was similar to the cords that were bound around our ankles in the other vision. As we tighten those, our unity will increase & we can operate in more harmony & more effectively & we won't be out of sync with each other. There are quite a few things about our being used together in teamwork & the Lord repeatedly emphasised unity & how very important it is. Over & over He talked about harmony & unity & being bound together. When we're in harmony, it's very pleasing to the Lord.--Walking in the Words of David & being a sample of the Word & working together. As we walk in the Words of David, the field will be more fruitful & the unity of the field will grow.
       The Lord gave some warnings saying we should not be entangled with 1) the opinions of men, 2) the traditions of the land, 3) the ways of the past, & 4) our own carnal ways of seeing things. The Lord warned that there is great danger that the opinions or traditions of men--possibly such as the "it can't be done spirit"--could make the Word of none effect. He instructed us to look unto Him, make our decisions based upon His Word, follow Him step by step, & bear one another's burdens.
       There were some very encouraging references to the feeling of being inadequate or incapable of the job. He said to say not that we were children, but that He would give strength & anointing. He also mentioned He would make us strong teachers, which was very encouraging, & that He would specifically give the gift of faith. In another place He said He would surprise us with the gifts He would bestow upon us. Along the lines of feeling inadequate, there was a continuation in detail of how the Lord would help us bridge the language barrier, but that Love is the most important thing. The Lord is going to do it because we can't.
       There was an interesting part where He said specifically that, "I have been sent to walk among you."--Like a specific spirit helper being sent for our Teamwork, to help us. It was all very encouraging!
