We came to Generation ONE for the first time on May 6, 2017 via an invitation from our friends, Mike and Jean Upshur. They knew that we had a hunger for Holy Spirit, fire, and growth, and that Generation ONE would be a great environment for us. We walked in with expectations, but we got more than we bargained for - Praise God! In that season, we were in a financial bind, even though we hid it because of a deep sense of embarrassment. At one point, it was so bad that even our kids did not know the depth of the situation we were in. Our Real Estate Business was non-productive for many years and we had depleted all of our funds to try and keep it going. With all this happening, we walked into Generation ONE with hopeful hearts.
That day we first attended, Drew spoke a word over us and our situation even confirming that we were considering retiring. We left that day encouraged as Drew spoke that blessing was coming in our business, but months rolled after we left - and that was okay. We continued to believe God as our Provider and we always seemed to make it every month. My wife was cleaning houses for the elderly to help, and she developed a real passion for it. She believes it is her ministry - being able to share Jesus with them when they don’t have much time left on the Earth. We continued to pray and always stay positive, because we know that you can never take your eyes off of Jesus.
Then BAM! Let me tell you about the faithfulness of my Provider, Father, and Friend:
On August 11, 2017, we had our first closing of the year equalling $7,800.
September 23, 2017: $9,120.00.
October 17, 2017: 2 closings same day $3,827.79 and $4,347.00
October 19, 2017: $7,503.00
And there is still more business that should close!
All I can say is thank you Jesus, He is the God of Restoration and is working to restore all that was stolen. All that Drew said to us in his word in just May of 2017 was confirmed by August of 2017 and we will be forever grateful to Him. On top of that, we thank Him for blessing us with our new family at GenONE. God truly poured out his blessing on us in all areas of our life. Our desire is to be humble servants, and with that, we wish to remain anonymous; but be encouraged, because He is working.
Our Love to You All.
