Many of you got our very old "Welcome Email" from years ago of where we used to meet from one of our board member, Amee Nguyen. My apologies if this brought confusion. We have not met at Hope Community church building for at least five years. I had done a mail merge, and it had triggered three "Welcome Email" automations that I didn't know was there. Moving forward, I believe we will be going into a "new-normal" where we will be meeting with individuals where they grow/work/play organically, and the Church will be most effective outside of our common church walls in this growing God-wave. I love what the Lord has been doing through Saturate OC in Huntington Beach. Check it out and get involved or get connected with other believers!
LoveHOP is going through a major transition to get rid of the old systems and also to prepare for the new. There will be a lot of revamping of the ministry, and I'll be focusing more of my efforts in the next few months until October 1st to preparing for the new. During this time until October 1st, I'll be mostly empowering others, while I'll be giving myself to prayer to hear clearly from the Lord, and also to prepare for the new. As we receive clarity, you will be notified. Currently, our Sunday nights church services will continue on Sundays at 6:30pm starting on August 2nd. I have had to take a break/sabbatical for the past few months conveniently at the height of the COVID. To read more, read below . LoveHOP has always had a call to be a training center, and several individuals have had dreams of others driving out with their own cars this past season at different times. The approaches in response to the dreams remind me of several swarms of bees flying out that I saw in front of my house shortly after. The cars many times signifies a maturity in their lives as a leader or a spiritual father/mother. Sometimes, the Lord matures individuals notably for their love for others naturally, and no one will get a dream of them having a car. LoveHOP has also always been called to be a resource to other ministries/denominations/marketplace leaders, and it began with our prayers. I have encouraged some of these individuals to go as far as adopting these churches as their home church and be faithful to also tithe or give unto the Lord. The Lord knows and remembers each one of our names (Isa. 49:15,16), while some other families change their family name from history like Hitler out of shame, except one, while the women in the Body of Christ change their last names out of honor. However, the best missionaries in the Body of Christ are many times ones that have their names hidden for the sake of the gospel. Hopefully some of us can party about it later when things settle down within a month or two. Moving forward, our remaining ones will be preparing for the "NEW-NORMAL."

The New Things that will be launched:
- We will have a new lovehop.org website, launched by October 1st.
- We will be praying in for additional stronger team of full-time advisors to prepare for the new wineskins and also the revamping.
Some of my personal callings:
- "Detox Beta 3" will be coming out, which is the simplified version of God's healing and deliverance/freedom training through my life that also places into consideration the necessary boundaries for sustainable breakthrough. It will include a list of questions to help facilitate for group prayer meetings, specifically for freedom & healing. I'll be adding that into my "prayer menu" folder, which hopefully will become an app. Detox Beta 3 will be the cheapest cost but it has been the costliest in my life unto the Lord. The cost is to fund and pay for the app among other administrative costs.
- The Detox training website at 4daysfreedom.com will be online hopefully by December. Discounts will be available for full-time missionaries & also part-time pastors. I'll make the trainings available to be sold and distributed to others for those who have gone through it successfully. The training has shown significant success particularly for healing and freedom for purity and break the bondage of sexual immorality, though it can be tweaked in small ways for all types of bondages. My greatest hope and desire is that everyone will go into their God-given potential and do what the Lord has called them without any hindrances.
- I believe the Lord has called me to mobilize for global prayer. It seems God is doing this through several or potentially many ministries in America. I will be casting vision and scouting for a team who has been called to that as well. I believe the Lord has created and made me for this very purpose. I do not believe this will take away the call for LoveHOP to have a 24/7 prayer in Signal Hill but will escort or add into it in the future.
THE PROPHETIC CORNER:
This past year has been the most hardest but also most fascinating season in my life so far with God. It is a treasure and I have made efforts to celebrate or rejoice for these trials! I pray it happens to everyone!! Our past LoveHOP team was getting complete complimentary words in prayer on every small thing that it sounded like we couldn't agree with each other. However, I believe it was the rainbow of colors of the way God was speaking to His people, and if I could summarize it, He was saying something like, "Do whatever is in your personal conviction from Him" to each person, including me. His people hears His voice.
The Lord speaks in multiple ways to His people. I believe the different ways that He speak can be summarized in John 5 on four types of witnesses of God: the Scripture, the Love of the Father in other's lives, the burning and shining lamp believer that has a heart like John the Baptist, and the fruits/works of a person delivering whatever God calls them personally is the greatest witness of God. I have been specifically faithful in one way of hearing God for directions and also for words of knowledge for over 13 years and have made little adjustments to it. I began discovering something very fascinating! (Side Note: The wineskin/system has been very accurate in pin-pointing whatever the issues that need to be addressed or that should be celebrated for at least ten years. Many times, we should get confirmations and advice from other seasoned leaders before moving forward prophetically on big life-changing ideas. Over ten years ago, I had an idea that has birthed this particular wineskin in my walk with God! The idea was simply to ask God a question - whatever it is you want to talk to Him about - wait for Him to speak to your heart (test yourself to see if you can trust your discernment and ask the question, "Have I forgiven this person/situation or no? What fruit of forgiveness have I shown in the recent past in this specific context?"), and ask Him to give you a Scripture or a verse to confirm what has been given to you through that still small voice. If whatever Scripture He gave me was confirming what I sensed in my Spirit after I tested it, then I would proceed to obey it, which may also simply mean to pray more or to keep within my heart. If it was something I didn't have wisdom or knowledge of from the individual/situation naturally or that I discerned in my spirit, I would not proceed to do it or proceed with caution. Whatever I have been describing started right before TheNextCon started, and it started with finding out I had made one mistake in assuming that God was going to speak to me the same way, and it was regarding Jessie Cruickshank. After the conference and giving birth to my third baby, I found her scrolling through for a few minutes through Starling Initiatives, based on my prophetic journey with God over the past 13 years. The prophetic journey can be summarized to be connected to the word "Evergreen," revival, the founding of America, Ford, and it is connected to the idea of spiritual family. Many others in the Body of Christ have had similar words connected to messages called, "Revival is Family," and "An Appeal to Heaven" (well communicated by Dutch Sheets).
Neil Cole had brought up for our team to host Jessie Cruickshank at our TheNextCon conference first in 2019, and I prayed and had received a very horrible word about her. It was so odd and horrible that I just dismissed it, like I did in the past. I couldn't pick up any emotional cues or discern, thinking that it just simply meant that I wasn't hearing right from God. As we began praying over other individuals, especially ones that I knew, like Cheryl Allen, I began quickly realizing that it was the call in their lives to go against those very thing I was receiving in my spirit. Cheryl ended up not responding to my invitation, but the Lord used the same ministry to tell me to keep going. The more horrible the word I was getting from the Scripture, the stronger the calling to go against it if it pertains to an individual! It was like God hid a diamond in a useless rock! This reminded me of heaven. I have gone to heaven in a trance or a vision multiple times, and one of the times, the Lord was so pleased that I had noticed the tiniest door in heaven that felt extremely powerful around 2009! I almost passed by it, dismissing it, but I looked back and God began speaking to me about the door. He said, "All kings want what's behind that door, but only those who are small enough can get what's behind it." He was talking about those who are meek will inherit the earth. If we are too prideful or our head is too big, we will not be able to hear what the Spirit is saying to us in our lives. God definitely talks to me about that using others or to me directly. So yeah. Consider this my apology statement as well publicly if I have said or anything hurtful in my ventures, making efforts to follow the Lord especially in the last year or whenever I have given birth. With everything that was happening, I definitely started to get kind of controlling especially towards my own family and cussing, almost like a sailor. Thank you for being my biggest supporters and showing me God's grace as well in every way - my parents, my husband and kids. Thank you for the leaders who have come alongside to also help me through this journey & prepare for the next as well. I am thankful for the past two months of sabbatical. However, God has been doing great things in the Family of God! I was able to "look back" to find out where I may have made a mistake and discovered a diamond when I tried to figure out where I may have dismissed something that it could not be from God or my bad mistake.
I had the privilege of interviewing Jessie Cruickshank in May as well as watching her videos on the ways the brain works organically with consideration of trauma several times in December of 2019. I realized that she has been doing something for the past four to six years or so that I was able to just recently roll out with the ideas the Lord have been giving to me the past ten years. I was able to put it into a group context through prayer right before COVID happened in March. This will be Detox Beta 3, probably renamed later. The very word she started out with about Ford being evil, I realized was a complimentary application/wineskin that God has been doing through her life and also mine. Whatever that sounded contradicting is actually the other side of the same coin, which shows that we serve the same awesome God. She has been pushing the boundaries to quicken for healing and restoration in God in different layers, and it's beautiful in Jesus! I highly recommend watching these videos and pray about implementing some of these ideas and what that can look like with you in your own life or church:
One of my favorite ministries that has started to take flight in the midst of COVID is called "Starling Initiatives," initiated by Neil Cole. I believe it has great potential to be atomically powerful across the globe to make the name of Jesus great. There are a line-up of spiritual grandfathers or great-great grandfathers that are among some of the best in the world all in one convenient place as well as spiritual mothers that are making its way into the group. I love the vision for it to provide a space to allow other spiritual fathers to connect with other Christ-followers. Imagine its potential if there are fun prophetic people that come in and begin to prophesy in the group! Check it out and sign up. It's opened for free only for a short time.
When I had prayed for it, I had received that it was an Isaiah 4 moment, with an emphasis on verse 1 for Starling. The Scripture says, "And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, 'We will eat our own food and wear our own apparel; only let us be called by your name, to take away our reproach." Our Church is in great need of spiritual fathers, and it's still lacking I believe because of even a generational setback through our wars. Godly spiritual mothers will strengthen and encourage the work of God through the maturing spiritual fathers to see them thrive to see them thrive and step within their calling in the Lord. I imagine that even within Starling, the Lord may even give a sign hat a female will leave her own organization that the Lord called her to start, and begin to even serve the vision of Starling Initiatives. If that happens, it will be a sign of a tipping point for souls to be exponentially saved, there will be many more females like sevenfold sent into the harvest to start organic churches through it, and there will be of course also an increase of those who will be a part of Starling Initiatives and also God's call through that vehicle.
Pray with me. "Lord God, I pray and agree for millions to be saved worldwide and hundreds of thousands of new organic churches to start all across the globe through Starling Initiatives and those involved in it. Raise up hundreds of thousands of spiritual fathers, and 'ekballo' and endue your daughters with Your Power from on high for Your sake. Amen."
Some of our former missionaries have branched forward to start new ministries or continued in their calling with another that the Lord is leading them. The way it has looked reminds me of a swarm of bees that fly out several times in a span of a month with different queen bees leading. Actually, I didn't know about bees at all until this happened in front of my house. It caused a few empty hives to be filled with new bees in our neighborhood! Our whole neighborhood was getting reports of new bees swarming into their hives. This made my hired bee-keeper quite jolly while he shared that some of our neighbors were freaking out, including me initially. If I was honest, I did ponder about dissolving LoveHOP and starting another new thing, but I waited to see if the Lord would give instructions, because Love waits. Some of the intercessors from PiHOP directed by Cheryl Allen, one of my favorite ministries out there, reached out to me out of the blue within a few days after my prayer time. They began prophesying about the girl/man on the white horse, which is our logo, including the call for international ministry. Actually, this past season, the Lord has placed in my heart to help mobilize for global prayer that started culminating with several other key prophetic words the past eight years, so the word for global ministry really resonated in my heart. All of this is to say that I know there has been a lot of changes, and changes can look scary at times, especially in a mostly prophetic community. However, we need to trust in the Lord, and pray even more that the Lord of the harvest will send forth more laborers into the harvest field. This is that time… [Previously we had a letter written from one of our former missionaries that have continued with Assemblies of God in Montana but somehow our system removed it.]
