The Mahanaim Mission
In 2016 The Master began to speak to us a Word and it was, "Mahanaim." "Mahanaim" means "Two Camps, Two Armies" in Hebrew. We had no idea of how that Word would set us on a journey that we are on still today.
There are SO MANY things we want to share with you! In the midst of what The Lord was instructing us was the Places of where He wanted to have His Campuses. He wants, "One in the Mountains and one by the Sea." Through very clear confirmations, He told us and showed us where one would be and that was in the Wilmington, North Carolina area. Dewayne and I obeyed and with our own money and resources got an apartment in that area to begin to do Ministry there while still conducting Ministry in West Virginia also. Television Outreach in North Carolina is going on weekly on three Major Networks! Hallelujah!
As time has moved forward we begun teaching many Discipleship Classes and began having weekly Services as Dewayne and I both knew that Pastoral Ministry was being added to the Field and Outreach Ministry that we still conduct through JCM. We travel to do many classes and turned our home into a Discipleship Center, Ministry Office and Church (along with it already having a TV Studio built in the basement!) Ministry is our life and we live in The Ministry!
In Luke 19:29-44, we are told that Jesus was going up to Jerusalem to The Mount of Olives and He tells two of His Disciples to go into a Village and untie a colt that has never been sat upon and bring it to Him. And He tells the Disciples that if you are asked why are you taking the colt to say, "The Lord has need of it."
On 17 August 2017 The Lord led Dewayne and I to Luke 14:33 (AMPC). The Lord asked us if we would surrender our all to Him. And would we surrender our home and property to Him. In the midst of this He was making it known to us that He had need of our home for The Kingdom of God. And when we read Luke 14:33 in the midst of this, we knew exactly what He was telling us to do. "So then, any of you who does not forsake (renounce, surrender claim to, give up, say good-bye to) all that he has cannot be My disciple." So, after much prayer and surrendering our will for His, we gave our home and almost 13 acres of land, everything to Him.
We started doing everything we could to make our home as excellent as possible for it to belong to someone else. Dewayne and some of his family built the home and only Dewayne and I had lived there and we lived there for 20 years. We put the home up for sale on the market and told The Lord that we would use the money to get Him His Places and build His Campuses for Him. The house sold and we closed on it on 11 February 2019.
We knew that what we received in the sale of the home and land would not in the natural, pay for what God is asking us to do for Him and His Kingdom, yet it will be THE SEED to manifest the Harvest to bring it forth. “Yes,” Jesus replied, “and I assure you that everyone who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or property, for my sake and for the Good News, 30 will receive now in return a hundred times as many houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and property—along with persecution. And in the world to come that person will have eternal life. 31 But many who are the greatest now will be least important then, and those who seem least important now will be the greatest then." (Mark 10:29-31 (NLT))
Very clearly, The Master then showed us the exact piece of property that He wanted to begin the Mahanaim Campus "in the Mountains" on and it was in Hico, WV. He directed us to buy THE PLACE that He wanted. And we bought it for Him on 08 April 2019 with the money from the sale of our home. He did not show us WHERE the Land was until after we had sold the house! The Land was completely cleared and prepared for building. The Lord began to tell us that this land in Hico, WV is called it "Issachar." The Tribe of Issachar where the ones that studied The Word of God and knew the Times and Seasons of The Lord prophetically. So from that point on we call this Place the Issachar Campus.
We would have a place to live on the property also, which we obtained also debt free. We and the People in the Ministry with us has seen God move many ways on our behalf! The next stage of the Mission was that The Lord led us to believe Him for a 90 X 100 (Remember Abraham (100) and Sarah (90) Steel Building right when the price of steel was going up quickly! The Lord led us to the exact Building. And yet again, there was MUCH to be done.
The preparation for the footers and the entire foundation needed to be done and paid for and of course all of us believing by faith that all of the work, resources and the building and the erection of this large building were all on our hearts to The Father to be done and to be done debt free. The 90 X 100 Steel Building arrived on the Ministry land on 24 September 2021 on large tractor and trailers. And the footers, the foundation and the steel part of the building was completed miraculously on 24 September 2022, completely debt free. We are now believing we receive when we pray for all that is needed for the inside of The Word of Life Center on the Mahanaim Campus in the mountains of Hico, West Virginia and all to complete the sewer system, electrical system and water system.
The Land of Zebulon From the very beginning, the land in Wilmington, NC was confirmed by The Lord that He was identifying it as the land He called, "Zebulon." THE DAY we signed the lease on the apartment and put a down payment on it, for the building was still being built that the apartment would be in. we left that signing and we had been praying and fasting that day and to break out fast we went to the McDonalds that was down the street from the apartment complex being built and pulled into the drive thru and got our food and then parked in the lot to eat. I turned to my right and read a history marker that read that the first Liberty Ship the SS ZEBULON VANCE was constructed one mile from the McDonalds we were sitting at! That was the last confirmation we needed! We had arrived in the Land God called Zebulon and we had put a down payment on the exact place we were to be at!
We did not know this until much later after getting the apartment that there was a literal pack that was made between the Tribes of Issachar and Zebulon many, many years ago. The Tribe of Issachar would study and teach The Word of God to the Tribe of Zebulon in exchange for Zebulon sowing into Issachar financially. These Tribes were connected by family and yet there was a promised exchange that they practiced! Also, we would discover that when the Tribes of Israel would all be encamped around The Tabernacle of God and it was time to move, the three Tribes who lead the other Tribes in the front were . . .
First - JUDAH (Which King Jesus Is From)
Second, following Judah - ISSACHAR
Third, following Issachar - ZEBULON!
We would travel back and forth from WV to NC doing Ministry and then The Lord began to speak to us that He was asking us to sow the apartment that we had in Wilmington, NC. This was once again VERY PRECIOUS SEED to us. We obeyed and moved again. Some things from NC went to storage in WV and some in NC storage.
And then something AMAZING HAPPENED! The Lord told us to go to a property that The Lord dropped in our spirit about, and He said go there and pray and put your feet on the ground and receive it by faith. It was a piece of commercial property right outside of the City of Wilmington and along the Interstate of 74. It had a for sale sign on it. So we did. Time passed and prayer and faith was administered. Then one week we were back in Wilmington and The Lord told us to quickly go back to that property and He spoke the word, "Sarah" to us! (Remember Abraham and Sarah).
We immediately went to the property and we were again AMAZED! There wasn't just a for sale sign on it this time, there was a large sign that said, "Call Sarah" on it! So, our next step was to CALL SARAH! On that call we found out that the person who owned the land was her sister! And that she was in prayer that day to The Lord about the land! And God GRACIOUSLY and OVERWHELMINGLY led the owner to call us about a year later and tell us that she was giving the Ministry the land! Yes, GIVING THE MINISTRY THE LAND! And we closed on the property in "Zebulon" on 24 January 2022 and taped our first TV Broadcast on the that land that day! Hallelujah!
We are also believing we receive by faith all that is needed to clear and prepare the land that is outside of Wilmington on I74 to begin building a place for the People of God to meet and train to be Warriors for The Kingdom of God on. The address of the Ministry property there in NC is 114 Andrew Jackson Highway, Leland, NC 28451.
Doing it all debt free. We told The Lord that is how we would continue to do this Ministry as we have from the beginning of JCM and in our personal lives since 2007. We committed to keep JCM debt free, ourselves too and to build Him these Places also debt free. Everything changed for us when we read in The Word, "Owe no man anything, but to love one another," (Romans 13:8 (KJV)).
Again, there IS SO MUCH we want to tell you of what is going on in this Mission for The Lord. And we want you to know as JCM is expanding we will continue to do all that we have done in JCM through Television, Free JCM DVD's and CD's, Bible Distributions, Outreaches, Publications, Pastoring, Discipleship, Internet Ministry, Media Ministry, Meetings and Teaching CONTINUALLY THE UNCOMPROMISED WORD OF GOD. The Campuses will have many forms of Ministry, Discipleship, Training, Outreaches, Services from within and Services going out. Loving God and Loving people.
Dewayne and I want to personally invite you to pray and seek The Lord and ask Him if you are to play a specific part in this Mission for Him. There are many areas to be utilized in. Praying and interceding, covering us and the Mission in prayer is vital. There are also areas of Building, Construction, Ministering to People, Praise and Worship, Musicians for Music, Serving in Outreaches for people, Membership/Serving in the Local Church Body, Discipleship, Media Ministry, TV Ministry, Office Work, Funding and Giving and so many more areas!
