Salem Outreach 2010

Salem Outreach 2010

As with every year, the interns did their annual Salem “Haunted Happenings” outreach in October. It was yet another very rewarding and fruitful Salem outreach. Below you can read more about the festivities:

Phil Wyman:
Phil Wyman is the Pastor of the Gathering, a retired bank (now a church), with the original vault still attached. He taught us some very useful techniques on how to approach witches and members of the occult without projecting feelings of condemnation, guilt or judgment. Phil has an amazing patience for these people and they share the same respect towards him. One notable practice he teaches regards how to rid oneself of preconceived notions on neo-paganism, thus being more affective in delivering the love of God to the lost. For example, witches are not likely to put a curse on anyone, as they believe it will return to them times three. Instead, most witches want to bless people so that blessings will be returned to them.

The Events:
There were many different things going on all around us at Salem. Our ministry tent was placed right next to the main stage and there were various bands playing throughout the day, anywhere from rock and rap to opera. We had to compete with the noise level often. One time specifically, they had a scream contest going which made for some interesting conversation in the tent. I believe that a few psychics from the psychic fair made their way into the tent, either to test us or just to receive encouraging destiny insights. There was also a dance competition led by Phil where we got to see a dancing Jesus which was very entertaining. Of course Phil, dressed up as a tree, brought life onto the scene as he stirred up the crowd trying to get them to dance with him. If you ever make your way down to Salem during Halloween hug the Phil tree and he'll yell out, “Tree Hugger!” Apparently the Mayor of Salem is a tree hugger.

Those affected:
There were so many people affected by the presence of the Lord it is hard to pinpoint one type of person. We had psychics, witches, and spiritual seekers with many different kinds of spiritual understandings. We would see people step into the tent with a frown on their face and spirit. God would lay into them through us and those people would leave feeling as though burdens had been lifted off of their shoulders; they had a new smile written on their face. Many of the afflicted felt freedom for the first time either in their lives or in years. People were hungry to hear what God thought about them. Skeptics turned into believers. We were also blessed to see some physical healing coincide with emotional strongholds leaving their spirits. God's desire to love on these people is amazing.

Halloween was pretty crazy. There were so many people in so many amazingly creative costumes. The gift of creativity made its' presence known in all sorts of different people. Some of the people were wearing costumes that specifically related to their God-given character. Nurse costumes worn by ladies who tend to nurture other peoples needs is a direct example of that. Some of our team also dressed up to join in on the festivities too, which was fun. We had a skeleton, a pirate, and Nacho Libre on our crew. Devils and witches stepped into our tent for spiritual readings and as it turns out, even those who would have us believe they are among the worst, are hungry for the word of God. It goes to show that God has a desire to bless the lives of those who are sick and they, in turn, are so starved for spiritual things that they are willing to get spiritual council from total strangers. It is the sick that need the doctor. At night we had a chance to sit outside of the Gathering and enjoy the festivities. People walking by would comment on our costumes and we got to do the same. It was a lot of fun.

Overall this weekend was a great learning experience. We had a lot of opportunity to learn how to communicate the love of God to those who are hungry for it. Love is both the first and second greatest commandments according to Jesus and it truly is the best way to approach people in general. Everyone has a hunger to hear from God. God speaks to everyone but not everyone has an open ear to hear what God is saying so, they often need a middle man for the communication. We learned (are still learning) to allow God to move through us to deliver His messages. Praise Jesus for all He has done throughout Halloween and all He is going to do. He is faithful to finish the works that He has started and He started a lot of projects these past weekends.

The Intern Blog is Back!


The new interns officially arrived on September 12th and immediately jumped into the extreme intensity of a two-week 101 and 102 course marathon.  To accomplish both classes in two weeks took a lot of work and a lot of hours to put into it. Within two weeks we had finished them both. Yet, all of the hard work was totally worth it because we had a new youth convention to lead.  We experienced exponential growth in a very short amount of time.  

Immediately after finishing the 101 and 102 back-to-back, Scott Evelyn, Josh Young, and the Streams Interns ran a youth conference in Boston, MA called “Presence” and it was amazing. We saw youth, who arrived with little to no confidence, discover a new confidence in the Lord. There was very little unity the first night as we administered inner healing, withdrawing shame and guilt from their lives.  In the following days, however, they acted as if the Lord had titled them a team as He filled up their hearts with His unconditional love for each other. They also learned to speak words of knowledge and words of encouragement to one another.  Though it was an intimidating feat to delve into, the youth did an outstanding job overcoming their fears and allowing the Holy Spirit to empower them. Through their tears of pain and healing came a new understanding about their relationships with God and each other.  It was amazing to watch as the Lord literally transformed the lives of these young people.

Since the youth conference the interns have been settling in, getting some rest and preparing for the Haunted Happenings outreach at Salem.  As the Salem outreach grows near, the excitement continues to intensify.  We are believing that the Lord will move on the city of Salem in huge ways!  We would appreciate any of your prayers during this outreach (October 22-31).

Portland, Maine Pics

Hey everyone!

It's picture day! Here are some photos from our recent trip to Portland, Maine.  We got to explore the city, hang out with Cindy Kay and her church for a lobster and steak BBQ, and set up our dream interpretation tents at the Old Port Festival. It was a beautiful last outreach trip for the interns.

PS. Intern graduation is this Sunday, June 20th on the Pinnacle Prayer Mountain! We are so excited!

National Day of Prayer (Recap)


This just in, an article from our Pinnacle Prayer Mountain newsletter...

National Day of Prayer (Recap): 
On The Pinnacle...

"With an atmosphere that fosters rich prayer and worship, The Pinnacle Prayer Mountain was an ideal place to host a 12 hour service devoted to intercession on behalf of the U.S. The essence of our Father's heart for our nation and where it's headed could be felt in a very thick and real way.  This "essence" was also the inspiration that fueled both intercession and worship throughout the day.

Beginning at 9am, the service began with amazing worship led by one of The Bridge Pinnacle Mountain's worship teams.  The atmosphere began to thicken as a result of worship to the Father and a spirit of intercession was released.  Every hour a different intercessor led prayer on specific topics.  Some of the themes included:  the government, our president, schools/colleges, youth, New England revival, abortion, repentance, persecution, and many more.

Aside from the prayer and worship, perhaps the most powerful aspect of the day was the spirit of unity that fell on those who participated in the service.  It was truly amazing to watch as individuals who are young in their call to intercession stood up with boldness and authority on issues close to their heart.  The support and unity of the group helped encourage people to step out into unknown territory.  Some literally experienced months of growth in just one service.

The National Day of Prayer was no doubt another small, but important step taken towards fulfilling the destiny of the mountain as a place of powerful intercession and worship.  The atmosphere on The Pinnacle continues to hunger for more activity similar to what was experienced on the National Day of Prayer."

The Interns At Northshore


Last Sunday the interns got to do a service at the Northshore Bridge in Beverly, Mass.  This was the second time we've been there this year, and it is always such a blessing whenever we get to go.

We drove down on Saturday afternoon and got to have dinner at the church and do some prayer ministry with the pastor, Drew Mcgee.  We learned a new prayer technique called 'Crafted Prayer' where we each take about an hour of individual time with the Lord and ask Him what's on His heart for the church.  Then we gather together again, share what we felt, then craft a prayer according to the common threads we found when combining all of our topics. 

It was really powerful, and incredibly accurate, as we interns didn't know much about the church or what it was going through.  The revelation we got from the Lord was completely objective and unbiased, so we knew it was legit! It was really great to learn a new way to pray and intercede as a group, a fresh idea.

Sunday morning we participated in worship with their leader, Josh Young.  Then Lance shared a little bit about what we do as a ministry and what God's been doing with us on the Pinnacle.  Liz, Kyle, and Andy also got to speak about their personal experiences so far as Streams interns.  Their transparency was so sweet and brought about a lot of change in the people...their growth inspired new growth. 

After the service we ministered to all the people; lined them up on the sanctuary perimeter, and laid hands on everyone and anyone who wanted prayer or impartation. 

All in all, our trip to Beverly was downright splendid.

Especially when we got to eat delicious food and play croquet, bocce ball, and badminton at the Mcgee's Sunday afternoon BBQ :)

Well, that's all for now.  I will get any pictures up that I can find from the trip in a post soon!

And here we go again!

This weekend the interns will once again be leaving the intern house, this time traveling to Beverly, Massachusetts to do a service for the Northshore Bridge.  Our intern worship team will be working with Josh Young's worship team (which is going to be awesome!) then we'll be taking the rest of the service from there. 

Andy, Kyle, and Liz are going to get up and share a few testimonies about how they were transformed since being a part of this program, then we'll get to do some ministry with the body! We're really looking forward to melding with Northshore, and fellowshipping with the people.

I'll post more when we get, testimonies, etc.

But for now, I'll leave you with some pictures of our beautiful state of New Hampshire, with Spring in full swing!! These photos are just around our intern house, down the street...all in the neighborhood.

Anyway, this weekend, the interns will be at the Northshore Bridge in Beverly, Mass for another Sunday service.  We'll be taking over the service like we did last time! <---click here to read about it.

We are really excited to get to minister to the body again! Last time we did this it was a mutual blessing for both the body and the Streams interns. They are so kind and accommodating.

Just a little while later we'll be headed off to Portland, Maine for another big outreach! More info on that one to come...
