I wanted to send out a quick newsletter to update you all on how things have been here in the house of prayer so far this year! 

Going into 2021, I was asking the Lord for fresh vision - in all areas of my life - but specifically in ministry. What things do I need to let go of? Where do I need to focus? How do you want me to serve? Nearing the end of December, I kept hearing the Lord saying: "I am your vision."

Some background - when I was 12 or 13, I heard Mike Bickle make the Anna call and it was all I wanted... to minister to the heart of the Lord. I wanted Him. I wanted His presence. I wanted Him to be my vision morning, noon, and night. I knew the Lord was highlighting Himself - what I first signed up for. As I've been saturated in full time ministry, I'm sure y'all can only imagine how easy it is to get your hands on plenty of other projects and divert your eyes to so many other things (even good things!). So, for me, 2021 is a year of DELEGATING (hallelujah) and coming back to my first love, JESUS (also hallelujah) - but specifically in the context of the prayer room.

You guys - in saying yes to the Lord in this way, He has MET ME. Almost every time I'm in the prayer room, I'm in tears (praise God for tenderizing my heart!!) because I'm so grateful to get to serve the Lord in this place. He's placing things, nations, people (specifically the orphanages in the city I was born in in Russia - CRAZY), on my heart in ways I've never experienced. He's making hunger for His presence grow in me like never before. Glory to glory to glory to glory. Thank you Lord!

The Lord gave me two specific goals in the year 2021 - 50 new monthly financial partners, and 100 prayer partners. CRAZINESS - I gathered exactly 100 prayer partners just in the month of January!!! (If you're interested - I'd be glad to have ya join the team even though I've already reached my goal!). Also, I have gotten 5 new monthly financial partners - which puts us right on track for 50 by the end of the year! Yay Jesus!

I'm really feeling the weight on my voice and an importance on sharing what the Lord is teaching me in this season. For that reason, I've been super intentional about being present on my Tot Thoughts Instagram - which I'm super pumped about. AND - I got to be a nerd and start a practical teaching series on time management this past Sunday... if you'd like to check it out, click here.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST - we have been starting to publicly share that we are releasing an album as Eastgate House of Prayer which is soooooo exciting!!! We've had 4 recording days so far and things are really coming along. I really can't wait for you guys to get your hands on these songs and feel the heart of the Lord through them. Rachelle and I were asked to record a short video sharing about one of the writes on the album called Heartache - there'll be more of these to come for the rest of the album!

I could go on forever about all the little things that the Lord has been speaking and doing but I'm trying to keep this short so I'll leave it there.

THANKS x 4637284732 to all of you who support me in any way, shape, or form. Bless you bless you bless you.

[lol, I know I was the queen of brackets in this email... I'm just so excited and want to fill you all in on all the deetsssss]
