Summer Transformation Intensive Post #3

We made it Manchester-City of Hope, Kentucky safely on Saturday, and it was a great road trip.

This is Hobart Hensley, and he goes to a church in Manchester. He is a Daniel Boone historian, and he demonstrated his flint-lock rifle for us, let us shoot blank rounds and taught us how to start fires with flint and a piece of metal.

The three guys in the middle are Big Dave, Steve Collett, and Barry Swafford (from left to right). They were former drug abusers and dealers, and the Lord has delivered them and is using them mightily in the community of Manchester! We prayed for Dave's partially paralyzed left leg, and the Lord restored movement to his heal after 6 years of not being able to move!

Every evening we have had amazing services with churches from around the community. Marvin Adams and his team from the house of prayer in Terre Haute, Indiana has been teaching them the harp and bowl worship structure. Rhonda and Marvin have been teaching about the corporate house of the Lord, consecration, the house of prayer.

Taylor Stanley, one of the participants, celebrated his 21st birthday with us, and we baked him a cake and sang to him multiple times :)

Melanda Adams came and shared about how the Lord rescued her from drugs, and what it looks like to be authentic followers of Jesus every day.

Here's our team worshiping together at a local couple's house one evening after the service.

Here is the memorial stone for the march against drugs and corruption from May 2, 2004. In a town of 1900 people, around 3500 showed up to march for the glory of God!
Portions of the march can be watched on the trailer of "An Appalachian Dawn" at or the full-length DVD can be purchased on our website at

Here's our team on the "Nickel Tour" of Manchester at the park where the march commenced. We could feel the presence of the Lord in the park, and the peace of God is tangible in multiple parts of the community!

This is New Clay County Justice Center, that was built in the last few years. The inscription on the side says "FOR THERE IS NO INJUSTICE, NO PARTIALITY, NOR BRIBERY." The people had prayed that God would expose the darkness, and over 60 public officials have been indicted and tried for different corruption charges in the last 7 years. The light and truth has exposed the darkness, and justice is prevailing in Manchester-City of Hope, Kentucky!

Summer Transformation Intensive Post #2

The Lord has been so amazing throughout the week, so here is a brief overview.

It's been FILLED with grace!! Every detail, logistic, all the meals, 16 hours of intense teaching, 25 hours in my house fellowshipping and worship/prayer meetings, watching transformation documentaries, etc. Your prayer has make all this possible. We never would have made it!!!

Rhonda teaching at IHOP-U

The team GOT the transformation theology, revelation, understanding, hunger - all of it. I was amazed how they perceived and digested it all. Not only that but they responded personally in humility and deep repentance. The Lord truly transformed them in a couple of days.
The class at IHOP-U

As they watched the transformation documentaries the Lord broke their hearts for their own communities, they saw the parallels of the strongholds, status quo of the church, etc. Then they saw what the Lord did and FAITH and HOPE rose up in their hearts!!! They are walking in revelation and faith knowing that Jesus IS A REDEEMER OF ALL THINGS!! Even of their own community.
Worshiping in the Basement

The highlight was our times of worship. Every time we worshipped we were in an amazing place in the spirit. Each evening different young adults lead us into the presence of the Lord. One night the Lord opened our eyes and released a gift of faith for transformation. We entered into a time of spontaneous prophetic worship and got caught up together in a place in the spirit for almost 45 minutes. It was incredible. The young adults had faith imparted to them and were changed from that Monday night meeting!
Another night worshiping together

Last night we watched the Manchester documentary and one of our group who is from Manchester shared his testimony and lead us in worship. All of a sudden we broke through into a place in the spirit I have rarely been. One person saw the heavens open over us, like a portal was formed over my basement. Another saw a staircase with angels ascending and descending, and another heard angels singing and began to softly sing the song he heard. I felt the weight of God's glory rest on us and then the power of God came into the room. It was CHARGED with His presence, like electricity.

My heart is full of anticipation of what the Lord has in mind for Kentucky and even beyond. This has been a week of encounter and equipping of revolutionaries.

In Christ,

Texas Update and Summer Transformation Intensive!

Greetings! We have had a busy summer I can’t believe how quickly things are happening both in the natural and the spiritual. These are intense days but exciting days!

I’ve been ministering quite a bit in Texas this summer, serving campus ministries and ministering in communities along the border of Mexico. This weekend, our Summer Transformation Intensive is beginning to train young adults to impact their communities for transformation. We also are getting more involved in consecration on University Campuses and just released our promo video for the “Face to Face” process (see link below). It’s powerful!

Rio Grande Valley, Texas

Weslaco is deep in the Rio Grande Valley, almost to the southern tip of Texas, near Brownsville. I visited this area in June and was blessed to find dozens of communities connected, praying and desperate for God’s transforming presence!

The first evening we had a combined service with several hundred hungry people from all over the Rio Grande Valley! I shared the hope of transformation and the Lord gave me a prophetic declaration about His coming as a Redeemer to the Valley! It was a powerful night.

I showed the clip of the Manchester transformation testimony and it was extremely powerful because of all the parallels of corruption, violence and drugs in the Rio Grande Valley.

Pastors responding to the message

The following morning, I met for several hours with pastors and leaders from all over the Rio Grande Valley. Within a couple of hours, they knew the Lord was confirming to them they were ready consecrate themselves and begin the journey toward transformation this fall. Not only have they committed to go through in their communities, they are carrying the hope of transformation and the process of consecration out to many other communities in the Rio Grande Valley! They have also committed to a full conference this September.

The morning of the leadership consultation the sky was filled with dark clouds. But the pastor said the black clouds come across every morning but “they never release rain”. It hadn’t rained in Weslaco for 6 months. I began to intercede and told those clouds to release the rain over the city!

I received news Wednesday that it started to rain and it rained for 3 days. The drought was broken. I believe this is a clear encouragement to the pastors to pursue 2 Chron 7:14 - the Lord can open the heavens!


Laredo is the “north gate” of the Rio Grande Valley. The border between Texas and Mexico has become a war-zone. While we get very little news in the USA about what is happening, it doesn’t take long to realize how terrifying life has become for the people living there when you visit the area.

Sunday night we had a citywide gathering and I showed a clip of Manchester, Kentucky and shared vision for transformation for Laredo. Showing the Manchester story in the context of Laredo was powerful because they understand the intimidation, corruption, violence and drugs. The vision and hope for transformation exploded in their hearts!

The next morning I met with several pastors from Laredo, many of whom had waited, believed and prayed for years to pursue transformation just didn’t know how. They knew it was time for consecration and they have already committed to going through the “Face to Face” Divine Experiment this fall as well has hosting a transformation conference.

Since my visit pastors from Nuevo Laredo (across the border) joined with pastors from Laredo and spent an evening hearing the message of transformation. Their response was to gather around the altar and repent to the Lord and one another. Together, leaders from both cities humbled themselves before the Lord and committed to one another. They have also already agreed to go through the Divine Experiment consecration process together across both sides of the border in Nuevo Laredo and Laredo in September.

Jesus wants to breakthrough with His light into the darkness and bring His glory to the Rio Grande Valley! He is raising up houses of prayer (14 new ones this year) along the border, setting watchman on the wall. The Lord is raising awareness and calling many to pray and serve this area of our nation. I believe this is the season when the border is ripe for the transformation!

Austin, Texas- Campus Leaders Retreat

I had the privilege of speaking to the leaders of Inter-Varsity from campuses across the state of Texas at their annual leadership retreat. The Lord is bringing the message of consecration of students on campus to regional and national leaders of the ministry. Several chapters on various campuses will be going through the consecration process this fall!

Summer Transformation Intensive- July 16th-31st

Our Summer Transformation Intensive begins this coming weekend! Young adults are joining us from Amsterdam, Orlando, several cities in Texas and Kansas City.

The first week we will focus on teaching the principles of transforming revival in a classroom at IHOP-U. Every day the participants will have time in the prayer room at IHOP. A couple afternoons we will have small group time to process and apply principles to our own personal transformation. Then in the evenings we will watch transformation documentaries and pray together.

The second week the entire team will travel to Manchester, Kentucky to experience transformation first-hand! We will meet with the leaders and people featured in the “Appalachian Dawn” documentary and hear their stories. We will take a tour of the community and see the tangible evidence of the transformation that has occurred.

Then each evening our team, partnering with the team from the house of prayer in Terre Haute, will lead the community in an Encounter God Service. Marvin Adams, the leader from Terre Haute, will lead worship each evening and help train singers, musicians and prayer leaders in Manchester to establish a house of prayer! Those evenings will focus on creating an atmosphere of the presence of God through prayer and worship where people can encounter the Lord and be refreshed in His presence. God has much in store for all of us during this intensive, we appreciate your prayers!

I want to invite you to partner with us in prayer regarding this new season for Fusion Ministries. Consider joining our prayer team, sowing into the ministry to support us financially or even consider becoming a trumpet for consecration in your own community!
