Greetings From Korea!

Hey bloggers,

We're here, and everything's amazing! Seoul is so cool, and we've already met people from all over the world who are here for the meeting. Very interesting...

I wrote a neat little article on the first leg of the trip that I was going to post on our layover at LAX, but the first flight ran a little late and I didn't have any time between flights, and now the article is obsolete because it was about the "foolishness" of dreaming (it was meant for April Fool's Day)...

Anyway, I need to crash right now, and I don't know what the schedule will be like tomorrow, so post if you want, just remember that it might not show up until I get back.

Thanks for all the great words. Peace!

Yayyyyy! Somehow there just HAD to be this physical manifestation-confirmation, NOW, that "we're ALL connected"--from Conyers to Korea to---infinity and beyond!

God you are soooo AWESOME.

Thank you for this gift. Thank you for this confirmation. Help us to walk in Faith, remembering this understanding, if/when the times come that we do not "see" it.

Knock their socks off, Bishop and Pastor Debye! You ARE.

Whooooo! Thank you Jesus!!!!! Glory Glory Glory! Can't wait to talk when you get back. Bish, I am soooooo excited for y'all. Wish I was there, too. Godsuperspeed!!!!

Sahib,

From my calculations, you are already in the now, tomorrow. When you head back, you will have already lived the day before as you arrive back. Don't want to get too philosohical, but the International Date Line is a man-made invention, yet somehow it manages time which is eternal.

Glad you are there and sad I am here. Hope whoever speaks for you tonight will feel the timelessness of the moment as they speak to the ears that want to hear.

Be well, my brother and know we are praying for you.

Ain't God Good?

Bishop:

Thanks for letting us know you arrived safely, most of all thanks for still being able to keep up the comms for Korea. Praying for you all.

P.S. I humbly request that you, Pastor Debye, and the rest of my BITN Family pray and intercede for me. Going through a tough crisis right now and believing GOD for Supernatural Intervention in a case where my landlord is trying to hang me out to dry. Standing in Radical Faith for a Breakthrough! Thanks!

We miss you and my kids and I are praying for you.

Bishop, bless the Lord you and Pastor Debye arrived safely. We are praying fervently for you! I believe you will come back here with a Moses experience! WE lift your arms up, in the name of Jesus! We believe when you open your mouth, the Lord will fill it!

What is the culture really like and the weather, well it is gorgeous today, about mid 70's, how is the weather in Korea? When you get rested please give us the details of your pilgrimage!

Peace and blessings,
Yvonne

Good to hear y'all are safe. We will miss you tonight but I look forward to listening to my friend Johnny. He has kept me spellbound before.

Bish and P Debye,

Give it to 'em good!! Praying for you NOW and always...

Scribe, In agreement for whatever you need... Please return the favor. Need a breakthrough as well, in a couple of areas..

"I pray for you, you pray for me... we're all a part of..."

Much Love.

Vaughn,
How does one leave a comment on your page? Was going to comment on today's article, but no comment link.

Okay, Bishop, the Universal Peace Federation has YOU written all over it! "What are Ambassadors for Peace? Ambassadors for Peace are a global network of leaders of every religious and cultural background who have distinguished themselves in service to their communities. They support the Universal Peace Federation's vision of promoting reconcilation, overcoming barriers and building peace, nations and the world through interreligious cooperation and service." If that relates to what you are there for, way to go!!

Glad to hear you arrived safely. Looking forward to Sunday! Godspeed for your trip home!

Thank you F4L! I'm not speaking for Mom or Dad Swilley, but been thinking about the "foolishness" of dreaming and the old drinking excuse "it's 5 o'clock somewhere"! Soooo,

If it's "time" to say Happy Mother's Day and Happy Father's Day, then it could be April 1st somewhere in the universe, too! Hook us up, Bishop?

Amen, EL. Johnny said "Bishop thinks I have a word for you." And He did! You BEING the Word, Johnny, was 9/10ths of the message!

Happy On the Day Birthday! (Hey, cool...if I time this right, it could post at 3:50!)

GOOD MORNING IN KOREA BISH and PASTOR DEB;

THE READING WAS ON JITN:Chp.14:8-28
and chp.17:11-26.
First I have to tell what a superb job brother Machion did.Jesus said that HE has to go away for the Holy Spirit to come.And you yourself have to go away,to see your student in action by delivering the word as you, yourself would have done.I think if I remember right,one of book of the Gospel,if I not mistaken its the book of John after HIS Resurrection sent the disciples all
all over to preach the GOOD NEWS.
Chapter 17:22-24.Last night play that role for me.I see the glory of Christ in you bishop,not only that I can see the glory in you, but I also see you don't keep it only for you.You also transfered it us to be one with you as you are one with Jesus.

What you did yesterday, was one act that truly show you want to expand the teachings revelation that are been pouring unto us,by choosing Pastor Lou and Brother John to represent you in your absence.

BRAVO,BRAVO....B.John,for a superb,superb word. Truly, you are really are one best of many students bishop has.The part you said:we are all unified.I have to tell you, for a split second I can hear these words coming from bishop's mouth,except it was you.Way to go brother John.

PASTOR LOU! you are always a refreshment to me and to my soul. Everytime you deliver a word,to us
it makes me know that I can do it too.The way you lead us yesterday was magical(if I can used that word.)Bishop will be very proud of his students" IN THE NOW".Thank You for giving us something to think about in our hearts.This kind of conversations was truly Deep calls on to Deep.To know what Jesus is looking for in each of us to represent HIM is DEEP very DEEP.Thank you for your obedient and your faithfulness,to say yes to our Father when he called to stand on his place.Isn't it the same thing Jesus did when HE calls us to stand on HIS place,for the messages of love to continue.
love you and thank you for being an original.

WELL DONE BISHOP.FOR LETTING THE HOLY SPIRIT GUIDE YOU TO MAKE THE BEST CHOICE OF TWO GREAT PERSONS, TO LEADS US WITH THE BEST OF LOVE LESSONS.

Isaiah55:4 Behold, I have given Him for a LEADER and COMMANDER to the people.AS God gives us Jesus as a Leader and Commander,Jesu made you also a leader and a commander to us too.
Once Again Happy Birthday Bishop.And many many to come
God Bless You Always.
