Love-Impact Thailand, May 2015 | Support Matthew & Amy!

Greetings Freedom and Joy Friends! We’re excited to have our associate revivalists, Matthew and Amy Baldwin, take a trip to Thailand in the beginning of May. They’ll be going on Kingdom assignment to make connections with like-minded Ministries for future love-impact, and they could greatly use your support! Below, Amy shares her heart to see the people of Thailand encounter Christ’s limitless love. Check it out…

A few years back, I left a huge part of my heart on the other side of the world in the streets of a small town of 70,000 that sees over 2 million tourists a year. I left my heart in the bars unnamed
and brothels of a city whose innocence was stolen. I left my heart among the people that Jesus treasures and desires to bring to total freedom in His love. It may sound crazy, but my heart fiercely loves the city of Pattaya, Thailand and I deeply desire to see the city brought to a saving knowledge of Jesus. It was in those same streets that brim with tourists who come for the city’s crazy night life (that begins at about 3:00 in the afternoon) that my heart encountered the grace and love of the Father in a way that has left me completely undone and radically changed, forever.

Since before Matt and I were even were dating, Thailand has made its way into our conversations and we are excited to announce that May 1st through the 16th, Matt and I will be embarking on an adventure to Pattaya and Bangkok, Thailand. We can’t wait to see what Jesus has in store for us!

We have been working over the past couple of months to see about coming to link arms with ministries we have connections with in the past and perhaps even develop new connections with other ministries. During our two week stint, we will be linking arms with local ministries to minister the good news to prostitutes, sex tourists, the transgendered, children, families, the poor, the broken, and those who have been oppressed or affected by the sex trade. In addition to partnering with ministries that focus on restoration, we will also connect with those who focus on prevention and seek to see society change through discipleship of a nation. We’ll be engaging in prophetic and power evangelism, prayer and unnamed-2serving in practical ways in the bars, slums, churches, and on the streets. We will also be bringing over a large amount of medical supplies that have been generously donated to Pattaya Slum Ministries. In addition to coming alongside and blessing the ministries we connect with during our time, we will be building bridges for future love-impact and seeing what it looks like to bring outreach teams to Thailand in the future.

In order to make this trip a reality, we will need a total of $4,000. We were able to secure our tickets at an incredible rate, so this will cover travel, lodging, food and outreach expenses. Please prayerfully consider how you can help us financially. If 40 people were to partner with us at $100 each, we would be set. Really any amount is helpful in making this happen. If you would like to partner with us financially, you can make your check payable to Freedom and Joy Ministries and mail it to:

Matt & Amy Baldwin
640 N. Albany Avenue
Loveland, CO 80537

Or you can donate online through Freedom and Joy’s website, at http://www.freedomandjoy.org/donate/. Donations are tax-deductible. Please leave the memo line blank on checks, but include a note that it is for us. If you donate through the website, include a short note stating it’s for us as well – PayPal will walk you through the steps.

We also need your back-up in the spirit through prayer. We know from the many other outreaches we have been a part of that when people pray, it changes the atmosphere over where we are, making it so much easier to flow with what Holy Spirit is doing.

Whether you choose to partner with us in prayer or financial support, please know we truly appreciate it! We need $2,000 by April 5, and the remaining $2,000 by April 31.

Thank you so much for your loving friendship and support in our lives!

In His Amazing Love, Matt & Amy Baldwin

Prophetic Promises From the Lord for 2015 | The Year of Grace Revealed & The Double!

PROPHETIC PROMISES FROM THE LORD FOR 2015

2015, THE YEAR OF GRACE REVEALED!
Seeking and waiting on the Lord for 2015, I heard Him speak clearly that it’s going to be a year that He reveals His grace to His people. Many haven’t understood the message of grace. 2015 will be a year of understanding the Lord’s grace with Amazing Graceclarity. Get ready for a new wine of grace to be poured out. Here’s what I hear the Lord saying…

2015 will be the year I reveal My grace, says the Lord. Many who haven’t understood grace will understand. Many who have had questions about My grace will receive My answer. I’m revealing My grace to My body. I’m bringing understanding to My body about My grace. Where there’s been misunderstanding, I’ll bring understanding. Where there’s been accusations against those who have stood for My grace, I’ll bring settlement and clarity. 2015 will be a year where I make My grace known. Many who have resisted My message of grace will have their eyes opened to see that My grace is good – too good to be true, and it’s true. Welcome My grace to overtake you. Welcome My grace into your life. It’s going to be a year of over-abundant grace, as I reveal My grace to My people. Be flexible as I pour a new wine into your wineskin. Be a flexible wineskin that doesn’t burst with expansion. I’m pouring a new wine of grace out in 2015. Get ready for expansion. Get ready for more understanding than before. 2015 is the year that I reveal My grace to My people!

Ephesians 2:6-7
And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages He might show the incomparable riches of His grace, expressed in His kindness to us in Christ Jesus.

Let’s welcome the revelation of grace in 2015. Let’s aim our hearts to be flexible wineskins prepared for expansion. It’s going to be an exciting year of understanding grace with clarity – more than before!

2015, THE YEAR OF THE DOUBLE!
On the morning of 2/2/2015, the Lord drew my attention to the three 2’s. I knew in dq-menu-food_double_cheeseburger_02my spirit that there are going to be three 2’s released in 2015 – three doubles. I see the Lord releasing double anointing, double authority, and double responsibility upon your life, in 2015. It’s the reward for your faithfulness and the character you’ve allowed Him to build in 2014. 2015 is the year of the double!

Get ready for the double, says the Lord. I’m releasing double anointing, double authority, and double responsibility, upon your life this year. It’s My reward for your faithfulness. In this past year you’ve allowed Me to build character in your life, and you’ve proven faithful to what I’ve called you to. 2015 is the year of the double. Get ready for the double!

Isaiah 61:7b
Therefore in their land they shall possess double; Everlasting joy shall be theirs.

– Kawika Cornelius, Director of Freedom and Joy Ministries
