Anissa’s Story – Post #10 – Waiting For God…

gods timing


As a result of the healing Anissa received in October-November, 1975, she was able to learn and do more things for herself.  It then gave me some free time to concentrate upon God’s call to build a healing center. During that time, there was no internet to access, so we had to seek other means of obtaining information.  

There just happened to be a woman visiting our church who was credited for establishing Prayer Rooms in USA state capitol buildings.  She began attending the prayer group meetings in our home, giving us wise counsel in laying a solid foundation that would carry forth the vision of a healing center.

Several members of our prayer team gathered with her for a day of prayer and fasting to first seek a name for the ministry.   The Holy Spirit led us to the Scripture, “In the beginning was the Word [Logos], and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men.”

John 1:1, 4   

The Bible I used translated the Word as Logos.  The revelation we received was that the written Word, Logos, would give life and light for the building of a solid foundation – thus – LOGOS LIFE AND LIGHT FOUNDATION.  Four years later, the ministry was legally incorporated as a not-for-profit organization.

Little did we realize it would be 25 years before the healing center would become a reality.  Once again we are reminded of how God’s timing differs from our concept of time. Just like the Biblical story in Genesis when God promised Abraham that he would have a son.  We learned from that example how important it is to wait upon the guidance of the Holy Spirit and not take matters into our own hands and end up with an Ishmael rather than an Isaac!  

Over that long period of waiting, many of our faithful prayer group members had to watch from the balconies of heaven the completion of the healing center.  I feel certain they, along with a host of heavenly angels, were all singing high praises when the center was dedicated on February 27, 2000, to the glory of God and established by

His Excellent Grace.
