We send you love and blessings from the very tip of the peninsula of Baja California Sur deep in the Pacific Ocean from a lil
respite called Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The Lord brought us here last October and it has been a beautiful safe haven
from crazy politics and the infamous virus. Covid free down here with clean, organic food and lots of Vitamin D with daily sunshine. We have a saying: No Bad Days in Cabo.
God sovereignly brought us here because Michael had been poisoned by large doses of antiquated blood pressure meds, prescribed by the NHS in England, for a long period of time. It has taken months with many different wonderful physicians to sort out the damage to his body from literally head to toe. The medical down here is excellent with young, sharp, current physicians. But the coûte de gras was our wonderful Heavenly Father visited Michael 3 weeks ago for 6 hours and he is totally healed!! Michael is now able to walk/jog and do exercises. Whilst prior to his healing encounter, he could not get in and out of bed or chairs by himself. It has been a challenging season, but we are thrilled to report the Victory here at Christmas time!
We continue to support our 14 plus churches in Kazakhstan by zoom teachings and last weekend we did an hour and a half live Instagram teaching and ministry time. These are house churches that started organically during Covid all over the nation. The ministry we helped found is Kingdom of God Ministries that lays the foundation of the Book of Acts and Ephesians 4:11 five fold ministry which the early Christian church created and it still works well today. It is a joy to our hearts to see the hunger and passion of these new converts!
We still support Apostle Allan Jiya and Holy Ghost Evangelistic Ministries 55 churches in Malawi, Africa. They all desperately need finances. We are proud of their farm project where they are continuing to grow watermelons and other produce to help support their mission. They have been a huge support in prayer for us to see the wealth transfer manifest.
Since being in Mexico for 14 months, we have had the privilege to lead many to Christ and many are baptized in the Holy Spirit and water baptized as well. Glorious! Well one of our lil converts, Alejandra, was recently abandoned with her 3 young sons the week before Christmas by her 42 year old husband and the children's father! He emptied out their home of everything but the children's beds. He now has a 17 year old girlfriend that he has moved into their family home Sooo we kicked into gear and our other new convert Paulina helped us find a used refrigerator. Our landlord is providing Alejandra an oven/stove combo, and our Lilly provided the shelves for her kitchen. Kingdom Connections took her to Walmart and outfitted her lil kitchen and bathroom and found a lovely sofa for her living space plus $100 to buy the children Christmas presents. Our heart is breaking for her and we want to do so much more. Another Cabo friend is bringing a suitcase of new little boy clothes today. The Spirit of Giving is our greatest Joy as I am sure it is yours. We just wanted to share some current testimonies of our life in Mexico with you to give you a feel of our heart for this precious nation.
We are also teaching and ministering on zoom to Latvia and South America with many nations. People are hungry worldwide for the truth and freedom that ONLY CHRIST CAN GIVE. We have stayed busy with health and ministry and want you to know that YOU are part of all we do and are! We have increased our staff with a Media and Financial Director. They are amazing and keeping us organized like never before!
Please let us hear from you and know you are LOVED, HIGHLY FAVORED AND BLESSED!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND GLORIOUS 2022!!
Jill and Michael O'Brien
February 17-19, 2022
God brought Michael and Jill to our city and the Holy Spirit did miracles! They released and imparted the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Healings are now
manifesting in our services, and we are experiencing a refreshment from Heaven. Thank God for these two humble people of God!
