Thailand: March-April 2015

Laying on of hands at G12 Conference Bangkok

Open Doors & Miracles: Thailand!

On March 3rd we left for five weeks of ministry in Thailand. Since arriving we have seen God touch people in ways they have not experienced before! It has been amazing. We would like to give you a brief summary.

1. Shortly after arrival, we were able to minister and do training for more than 300 pastors and leaders at the G12 Conference at Bangkok Liberty Church. In these sessions, we saw several healings and powerful time of impartaion.

2. On Sunday, March 15th, we ministered in the morning service at Liberty Church Pattaya and saw several salvations and healings. We were able to do a training and equipping session in the afternoon on what the Kingdom of God is wih an emphasis on Healing for about 50 of the church leaders. There was a great time of impartation as many hungry hearts came to be prayed for.

3. We traveled north to Chiang Mai to participate in a regional G12 conference which trained and equipped more than 200 leaders from 23 churches.

4. On Sunday, March 22nd, we ministered separately in two different churches. Trish ministered at Chiang Mai New Wine Skins Church and Dan at Chiang Mai Liberty Church. We both had awesome times of ministry. Again, in the afternoon pastors and leaders from other churches in Chiang Mai came together for training, equipping and impartation for healing ministry.

5. As you know, one of he key areas of ministry God has called us to here is to set up homes for children who are at high risk or who have been rescued from human trafficking. On March 24th we were able to travel to Mae Sai (the northern most point in Thailand). It has been called the “gateway for human trafficking” into Thailand. There we met with Pastor Thongbin and discovered she carries the same burden and vision as we do about rescuing and restoring these children.

At this point it seems that we may very soon, within the next few weeks, be able to launch our first home here in Thailand. The way God lead and set this up IS SUCH A MIRACLE!!! Please continue to pray for this project for wisdom, favor, strategy an provision.

6. On Tuesday, March 31, we were invited to do training, equipping and impartation for all the key leaders and cell group leaders at Bangkok Liberty Church. This group numbered more than 200.

7. Throughout the entire last 5 weeks, on numerous occasions, we had salvations, healings, Divine appointments and extraordinary favor.

We could go on and on telling one story after another beginning with the first leg of our flight here. Sometimes, all we can do is shake our heads in awe in what God is doing.

Thank you for your continued love, prayers and support. You play a huge role in what God is doing here. Thank you for partnering with us.

With love and blessings,

Dan and Trish

Prophetic Prayer for the New Year and a New Season!

Dan-Trish Memphis Christmas

Trish and I want to wish you a very happy and prosperous New Year. We are praying, declaring and believing that 2015 is going to be an amazing and blessed year for all of us! We sense in our hearts that what you have prayed and contended for in previous seasons is about to come to pass. Prayers long ago prayed and forgotten by you are still alive and remembered by our Father. What you thought futile and not heard, still ring in the Father’s ear. They have been treasured and stored up for the day of His breaking forth in power and love. You will be staggered by His glory. You will look in awe at what He is doing. Take heart. Stand and watch His salvation and deliverance overtake you in a day! In this new season you have permission to stir up long forgotten dreams and desires born out of love for God, His people and His Kingdom. Take hold of that in your hearts, press into it by faith and watch what He is about to do!

Happy & Blessed New Year,

Dan & Trish Notley

Thoughts on Holy Week: A Tale of Two Gardens and Two Trees

Thoughts on Holy Week:  A Tale of Two Gardens and Two Trees

In the Garden the “first Adam” fell. In the Garden the “last Adam” prayed. When Adam fell, he lost his unhindered relationship to his Father and access to the Tree of Life. In another Garden, the Son of Man (the Last  Adam) prayed three times, “Father , if it be Your will take this cup from me…but not my will, but yours be done.” This prayer reveals His humanity. The suffering before Him was unbearable. He was already feeling the weight and agony of the sins of the world upon Him. So much so that He began to sweat drops of blood. So much so that the Father sent angels to strengthen and minister to Him. In the end His love for the Father and for us compelled Him to obedience. It led Him to another “Tree”, upon which He suffered and died. That act of staggering and almost unimaginable love and obedience opened the way back to the Garden and the Tree of Life and intimacy with the Father for us! SelahIn the Garden

Thoughts on Passion Week and Revival

Thoughts on Passion Week and Revival:

While reading the various accounts of the Passion Week in the Gospels several things struck me. First, the same crowd that celebrated His arrival, crying “Hosanna” later cried “crucify Him!” Why? because He disappointed their theological and political expectations.

Second, the religious leaders and theologians were “indignant” (offended) that He healed in the Temple. Why? Because He broke religious tradition and protocol by allowing the “unclean” (blind, lame) on to holy ground and healing them.

Third, His own disciples were “indignant” (offended) that costly oil was poured out on Him. Why? A poverty mindset always sees extravagant worship and radical generosity as wasteful.

And fourth, when Jesus rode into the city, “He saw the city and wept over it” and lamented “You did not know the time of your visitation!”

In contemplating this strange mix of responses to Jesus it occurred to me that it sounds much like how revival is received and treated. Initially, there is great joy. Our prayers have been answered. But it can soon give way to disappointment, offense and indignation. Why? Because when He (who is revival Himself) shows up in our lives and meetings He will do so outside our narrow definitions and expectations. And if we succumb to offense and reject His ways we can “miss the time of our visitation!” This week let’s celebrate Him, receive Him and be extravagant in our worship of Him. Selah

Two Questions, Two Lies, Two Truths: Part 1

Two Questions, Two Lies, Two Truths: Part 1
There are two questions that every human being has to answer. These are the two most significant questions we will ever encounter. How we answer those two questions, two lies and two truths will shape the course of our lives and determine history. And how we answer is determined by our perspective, our history and what voices we are listening to. Let me say up front that as a follower of Jesus I am addressing this issue from a Biblical worldview. These two questions are, first, “If there is a God what is He like?” and, second,”Who am I?”
I believe these two questions and the answers are clearly laid out for us in the Bible. In the creation account in Genesis 1-2, God creates man, male and female, in His own image and blessed them, gave them authority over the earth and commanded them to be fruitful and have families. Man was to represent God on the earth, extending Heaven’s influence over the earth and manifesting and demonstrating His character and nature in their own lives.
Up to this point it is clear that God is not only powerful but good. It says that when He looked at all He created He called it all “good…very good!” All that He created is consistent with and reflects His very nature and character. He cannot create anything out of what He is not. It is also clear that “man” is the greatest and most excellent of His creations. Man was created in the likeness of God to live in a unique relationship with each other and with the Godhead. It’s called family.
In Luke 3:38 he calls Adam” the son of God.” That means that God is our Father. That is not meant to be believed simply as a theological, philosophical or theoretical concept or principle. It is meant to be believed and lived in our everyday experiences. So, God is good, He is our Father and we are His children. We say that, but do we really believe it? Sadly, for the most part we don’t. If we did human history, as well as church history would look different. Why is that?
It because God has an adversary. And our “Daddy’s” adversary is also ours. In Genesis 3 the serpent, Lucifer (Satan) enters the picture. By the way, he is not God’s co-equal. He is a created being and vastly inferior, even before his rebellion and fall from Heaven. He is the enemy of God and all that is good. In this account we have the first record of the strategy he will use to destroy what God loves, willed and created. His only weapon is fear rooted in a lie(that is believed and agreed with). That is why Jesus called him “the father of lies.”
The “two lies” are (paraphrasing), first, “God is not good, is insecure, holding out on you, He doesn’t trust you and you can’t trust Him. You are on your own. Take matters into your own hands.” Second, “You are not like Him. If you do what was forbidden, take control of your own life you will become a god.” In summary, God is not good and you are orphans. From that fateful day, with it’s tragic consequences, every human has been born into an orphan planet with an orphan heart.
From the beginning the enemies strategy has been to distort and slander the image, character and nature of God and His intentions and purposes for man. And he has worked hard at distorting and perverting our understanding of our true identities and destinies. Why? Because any follower of Jesus who knows who God is, what He is really like and who knows who they are in Christ is dangerous beyond description to the powers of darkness! That is the indescribable gift that the cross and the empty tomb has made available to us.
In my next blog I will address the “two truths”; how Jesus dealt with the two lies and what that means for us.

Healing in Africa Pt 2: The Miracle Continues

The African Healing Miracle Continues

In my last post I mentioned that when I was in Rwanda, Africa in December we had a man who had been born blind healed. I am attaching a short video clip of this man. The crowd has broken into celebration over the healing. The man who was healed is the one in the white shirt who does a quick “double take” at me.

Recently we heard that the news of his healing spread far and wide. He was interviewed on the radio. As a result of this miraculous healing many are coming to the churches in the area, bringing those in need of healing. Many are finding Jesus as both savior and healer. This African miracle continues to impact many lives for the Kingdom of God.
