Once Again

By shellyhuey | Uncategorized , Victory Update

The other day I was in pain.

So I was feeling a little frustrated, a little discouraged.
A little overwhelmed. A little defeated. A little tired. A little pressured.
One of my friends happend to call me. He and his lovely wife live in another state. He prayed with me on the phone. And I felt better. What POWER there is in prayer.

He knows me and Craig.
He knows our jam packed and abundant life.
He knows about our business, the campaign, the kids.
He knows enough about us to be considered a close friend.

When he calls, I’m always encouraged. His prayers are specific and targeted. His prayers are anointed. He prays with the unstoppable power of the Holy Spirit. And that power BLASTS through my frustration. DESTROYS my discouragement. DIGS THE DIRT OFF of my overwhelming heaviness. RELEASES the intense pressures. When I hang up the phone I’m REENERGIZED, REACTIVATED and ready to take on the world.


I love Mark 2:13. ONCE AGAIN, Jesus went out beside the lake.
He didn’t stop going out… to Minister, to Teach, to Pray, to Heal, to Deliver.
In this passage, God made a point of mentioning Jesus was BESIDE the lake.

Maybe your lake is a body that doesn’t work that well. A pool of helplessness sits heavy on your weak flesh.
Maybe your lake is a disappointing relationship. A memory of lost love sits alone, isolated on stagnant waters.
Maybe your lake is an overwhelming addiction. A flood of attempted removal has mocked your failed thoughts.
Maybe your lake is a frustrating and dead end career path. A torrent of dead dreams have created a sea of forgetfulness.
Maybe your lake is a discouraging financial situation. An outpouring of debt circles your very being like a cesspool.

Jesus wants to be beside Your Lake.

He wants to transform your helplessness into hope.
He wants to transform your isolation into abiding in HIM.
He wants to transform your failed attempts into victory.
He wants to transform your dead dreams into new vision.
He wants to transform your debt into generosity.

He knows ALL about you. He knows ALL about your jam packed and abundant life. He knows your business. He considers you a close friend. He like my friend who lives in another state. He is seated to the right of God Almighty. He calls you. He’s got your number. You just have to pick it up and answer.
And you will hear how HE is interceding for You. Specific, targeted, anointed prayers. Daily. All the time. Nonstop.

ONCE AGAIN, invite Jesus to come be beside Your Lake.

He will Minister to You, right next to your lake.
He will Teach You, right next to your lake.
He will Heal You, right next to your lake.
He will Deliver You, right next to your lake.

And as You allow him to do that…He becomes bigger and You will notice that Your lake gets smaller. And in His Sovereignty, He might allow Your lake to be completely gone. And You will be Reactivated. Energized. Ready to take on the world.


PRAY FOR: Christians in this area to rise up and through the power of the Holy Spirit be the ministers, teachers, healers and deliverers. We need to be reactivated and reenergized for His glory.

PRAY FOR: Craig and I to be surrounded by a mighty force of prayer warriors for this campaign. We know that prayer penetrates darkness and moves mountains. Pray for this newsletter (Victory Update) to be resent and multiplied. We are engaged in a huge spiritual battle for the state of California.

REMINDER: Prayer for the campaign is starting at our house THIS
Monday night and will continue EVERY Monday night until the election. Please come. We will be praying from 7-830pm. Also, starting August 4th we will be praying EVERY Saturday morning at the Campaign Headquarters from 8am-9.

ACTIVATE: My friend that called me is Mikel French. He is an international evangelist, speaker and church planter. Hundreds of thousands have heard and received the good news of Jesus Christ through Mikel. He has been specifically targeting Russia for 18 years. Because he trains pastors and youth as well, his ministry is seen as a THREAT by the Russian government. Just this week, the government has moved their scheduled August event to a more expensive location near Moscow, in hopes that Mikel will cancel.
He is forced to raise another $31,000 in the next 26 days. Thousands of youth are expected to attend.
You get the opportunity to be like Jesus and come next to Mikels lake of overwhelming financial responsibility. Please go to
REACTIVATE Mikel to fight the good fight in a desperate dark country.
You will be a part of the voice that saves. Not just in August. Not just in Russia.
But for Eternity.

Black Covers

By shellyhuey | Uncategorized , Victory Update

Because California is a parched desert, we get to BUY our water from other states.

The California Water District is EXTENSIVE and POWERFUL. Most of its operations are underground. We live right down the street from a reservoir. Its pretty HUGE and DAMMED UP. Literally acres of LIFE GIVING water is sloshing around under a big protective black cover. What a precious resource. Necessary for survival. Water is CONSTANTLY released to the nearby cities and residents.

Without it they would die of THIRST.

You can’t see the reservoir from the street. No wonder no one really PAYS ATTENTION to it. No signs IDENTIFY it. It’s hidden by green mature trees. Well worn horse trails surround it. No one passing by really knows what goes on behind the one and only gate.
Serene, quiet and secluded. Kept secure. Fenced in. Safely contained and protected, AWAY from thirsty people. A well kept secret except for those that live right next to it. If you peer beyond the barbed wire fence, you see a vast NOTHINGNESS. All you see is that big black protective cover. You can’t even SEE the water. No evidence of LIFE. No evidence of POWER.

Cities and residents around us are dying of thirst.
They THIRST for the Living Water.
They just don’t know where to find it.
So they keep going to other “wells”, BUY it and they think it will provide.

But they stay thirsty.

Forgive us for not IDENTIFYING to thirsty people that we know the One and Only source of living water… Jesus.
Forgive us for wanting to be safely contained and protected. AWAY from thirsty people.
Forgive us for staying inside serene, quiet and secluded churches. Because no one passing by really knows what goes on in there.
Forgive us that no one really PAYS ATTENTION to the fact that we have a life changing personal relationship with Jesus. Because we can just jump on the well worn trails that lead to Christian events and pray the pastor or worship leader leading it will tell others the gospel,

Because we won’t.

Because maybe if people peer beyond the barbed wire fences surrounding our hearts, they would see a VAST NOTHINGNESS.
Because maybe if people look close enough they will see a protective black cover of depression that has covered our LIFE GIVING source of hope.
Because maybe if people find out our well kept secrets they will see a black cover of pain that has consumed our hidden joy.
Because maybe if people really knew what went on behind the gates of our minds, they would see a black cover of confusion that has enveloped our souls.

Have we forgotten that the Holy Spirit is more EXTENSIVE and POWERFUL than we can imagine?
Have we forgotten that the Holy Spirit is HUGE and doesn’t live down the street but in US?
Have we forgotten that the Holy Spirit doesn’t want to be DAMMED UP inside of US?

He wants to CONSTANTLY release life-giving water out of YOUR life. He wants to flood your parched desert soul with His presence once again. But He won’t do it unless YOU let him remove that black cover. All you have to do is ask and He will Breakthrough.

And because of HIM, You will experience the glory of His VAST goodness.

You will become a reservoir of HOPE for a dry, thirsty, lost people.
You will become a reservoir of JOY for a pain-ridden person.
You will become a reservoir of PEACE for a confused non-believer.

You will be used by Him CONSTANTLY. People will PAY ATTENTION to Jesus. Signs, miracles and wonders will follow you. Hebrews 2:4

All the time.

Evidence of LIFE. John 10:10
Evidence of POWER. Romans 15:13

And People will SEE the living water…IN YOU.

PRAISE: We had a small but powerful time of Praise and Prayer last Tuesday night. God has blessed us with amazing prayer warriors like You. Thank You for holding us up in prayer. Without it we would be completely and utterly useless.

We will be having ongoing prayer at our home every Monday night starting July 30th from 7pm to 8:30pm. We will also have prayer at our campaign office every Saturday morning from 8am to 9am starting August 4th. Hope you can join us as we lay a foundation of prayer for the coming months.

PRAISE: Craig was on Fox Business News again last week. Pray for more opportunity for him to be asked to appear on TV and Radio.

PRAY: We are in the process of interviewing potential staff. Pray for wisdom and discernment in hiring. We also are in need of capable and professional volunteers.
