Revolution!

Stephen court is advocating MMCCXX: Two thousand cell groups in 200 countries/territories in 20 years. Young people are getting together in groups of four to six, moving to a new city or country and getting jobs there for the purpose of sharing the Gospel. The concept is laid out in Stephen's book (which he co-wrote with Aaron White): Revolution. It can be ordered at ArmyBarmy.com.

Hey Rich,
It's Matt Champ. I just wanted to say thank you SO much for your prayers that night. It was AMAZING...you are definitly a vessel for the Holy Spirit and He is going to use you to reach MILLIONS! Tony came back as you know, and he brought a friend...they're both taking things slow, but I think that if we can all pray for Tony and Justin the seeds that we sowed that night will take effect. Once again thank you Rich, you are AMAZING.
God Bless you and your ministry!

Hey Rich,
My e-mail address is portobello.the.champ@gmail.com . If you check this before 8:30 Pm (central time) I'm going to ask for you to pray for me. At 8:30 pm tonight I'm flying out to Vancouver to start my year at the War College. It's gonna be a crazy year. But it'll be fun. Also, there has been an update on Tyler and Theresa. (We did an enacted prayer for them.) Tyler is going in for surgery on Monday. If he doesn't go in to surgery the doctors are saying that he will become paralyzed from the neck down (due to the severness of his spinobiphida and being only 3 years old or he will die. The chances of him surviving this brain surgery are 50:50. So on Monday, we are going to be needing all the prayers that we can get. Anyways, thanks man, I'll talk to you later.
Take care and remeber God's using you for something big!
LET'S GET THIS REVOLUTION STARTED!

Matt,
I will indeed be praying for you as you embark in the War College experience! Feel free to use this page as a way to update people on Tyler's progress. I'll certainly be praying.

You know, miracles happen all the time. Hi Matt. I new you when you were shy, sensitive and brilliant. Now you are wild, sensitive to God's Spirit and brilliant. Is that a miracle? Praying God will bless your year in Vancouver.

Update on Tyler:
He survived his surgery. But he has spent the first two days on his stomach without being able to move. IT's going to take some time to see how the surgery affected him. He may be paralyzed from the neck down, but things are up in arms as communication between BC and Ontario keeps getting cut off. We need to keep praying for Tyler and Theresa...as Theresa hasn't left the hospitol since Monday. The moment I get more news I'll update you Rich, but right now, prayer is needed heavily for that family.
Take care.
Matthew

I was praying for Tyler all through the day of his surgery.

Lord, we continue to lift him and his whole family up to You. Empower good communication in every way. In the Strong Name of Jesus, Amen.

Ok,
so the total count of the surgery is this:
Tyler is back home...alive and unparalyzed...he even wanted McDonald's earlier on today. They found two benign tumours on his spine, (which was an added worry for Theresa) and they also had to drain a fluid sac on his spine. Theresa put her own surgery on hold for Tyler, incase he has to go back in for anymore surgery in the future, which we're praying that doesn't need to happen.
Thanks for your prayers Rich...they've paid off!
Matthew
