Pierre Aglow Prison Ministry hosted The Father's Heart Retreat with Jeff and Autumn Mann on April 13 and 14. Jeff and Autumn pastor James River Church in Huron, SD. The retreat was awesome! They will be offering the retreat again this fall in Huron, and we highly recommend it.

Jeff and Autumn's retreat materials were based on ministry offered by John and Sarah Urich at "Light to the Nations Fellowship" headquartered in Sanford, FL  This video introduces their Father's Heart Encounter. More information is available from Jeff and Autumn or John and Sarah at these websites.

Meeting in Homes - What a (Biblical) Concept!

Pierre Aglow hosted a local 'home meeting' on March 24, to make sure we got the most from Nancy Bartel and Sharon Owen in addition to their weekend of ministry at the prison. Every time we host a home meeting, we are sold again on them again. It was so fulfilling - wonderful attendance, worship, fellowship and ministry. 

 Donna Chopper ministers to Nancy Bartel.

Altar Time

Ministry and worship at the close of the meeting.

We have sometimes been uncertain about hosting a home meeting, but were encouraged to read this the next day:

Chuck Pierce in “Time to Defeat the Devil”, p. 3-4, in the section ‘Believe That You Can and You Will’:

"…In this season we must rehearse the Word. What revelation has come to you? That is what you use to war in the world around you. We must meditate on what God says until the power of that revelation enters our bloodstream and cell structure.

We also must learn to worship and minister in our homes. Doing so will allow our gifts to be activated in a new way in small groups. When the time comes that we are not free to worship publicly in our church buildings, we will already know how to continue worshiping in our homes….”

Four Primary Laws... shared by Nancy Bartel from Staff & Bowls Ministry

The speaker at our March Aglow meetings, Nancy Bartel, shown here with her husband Wally, reminded us of what the Elijah House Ministry (http://www.elijahhouse.org/) calls the Four Primary Laws from Scripture. They consider these laws to be foundational in healing hearts and transforming lives through the truth that is found in Jesus Christ.  Scroll down to read the Four Primary Laws.

We hope to bring Nancy and Wally to Pierre again in 2012, although they won't be able to return to the prison again until 2013.


Sharon Owen accompanied Nancy on this journey and shared her testimony with us at the prison and at a home meeting on Saturday evening. Our cat Jasmine tried to make her welcome.

Colleen and Ivan Venner led us into worship on Saturday evening, and Nancy played her flute and guitar.
 

Four primary laws…



Elijah House Ministry



1.  Honor your father and mother…


As the Lord your God has commanded you, that your days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with you on the land which the Lord your God gives you.


Deut. 5:16


2.  Do not judge, lest you be judged yourselves.


For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it shall be measured to you. Matt. 7:1-2



3. Whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.


For the one who sows to his own flesh shall from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit shall from the Spirit reap eternal life. Galatians 6:7-8



4. For you who judge practice the same things.


Therefore you are without excuse, every man of you who passes judgment, for in that you judge another, you condemn yourself.

Romans 2:1
