so, here’s the funny thing.
Now that I recall I do remember hearing about some kind of fasting for the staff and leaders. but it never processed into my brain to remember or even think of participating. But last night as I was going to sleep, in my bed… I had a very strong sense that I needed to fast.. a Daniel fast. It was really random for me cuz I didnt even have the thought of it. then some lines popped in my head as i was dozing into slumberland: seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness. then another popped up: Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world but be transformed ‘renewing’ your ‘mind’ then you will ‘know’ the will of God, his good pleasing perfect will
then i fell asleep.
next morning i read through the internet and saw GK’s post of fasting..thats when I was like “omg!! i rememberrrrrrr” and decided to fast: “communication” LOL thats right, goodbye cellphone, facebook, youtube, gchat etc etc etc for the next 2 weeks and have my own service at home three times a day instead, and HELLLOOO Veggiessss~ hahahaha
But, for the sake of work, I’m leaving my email open.

It’s SOOOO FUNNY how God does that.
So here’s the thing:
I didn’t even know staff was doing a fast because I had to leave early from the c-call. Two nights ago, I was driving down from UW campus and had said no to an offer for dinner because I had NO appetite to eat. It was then I realized that for the past 3 months, God had been teaching me how to have a fasted lifestyle and was downloading it into my spirit. I would have waves where I desired NO food and if I smelled food I would get nauseous. I just wanted to pray pray pray and be in God’s presence. In my car, I had a STRONG URGE and an almost OBSESSIVE desire to want to fast. As I was asking God how I should fast, I said outloud “DANIEL FAST!!”
So I thought I was the only one that was going to do daniel fast. The next morning I was talking with SK on GCHAT and she randomly asks me, “are you fasting?” And I was like…. “Why are you asking me…?” She says, “GK had a dream that we were daniel fasting”. LOL. That’s how I found out.
THANK THE LORD that He is calling us to fast and we’ve all responded in such a way. If He is the one to call us to fast, we will be victorious through His Grace.

I think SK this should somehow be blogged, maybe it will encourage more ppl to fast with us^^
And so here we are. We invite you to fast with us as we dare not move forward unless His Spirit goes before us.
