A CALL to GATHER - Please Reply?
-Andrew Strom.

I have heard there are people coming from far and wide to the 
Outdoor "GATHERING" that we are holding on 3-4 July near
Kansas City. But I really want to put out a renewed "CALL" to 
everyone on this List to consider coming along. -Even if you 
had something else planned that you "normally" do over 
Independence Weekend, please PRAY and ask God if He 
might want you to come. I just feel that it may be an important 
gathering "for such a time as this" and I would hate for anyone 
to later regret that they had not attended. There is something 
in the air - something new that God is doing this year, I believe. 
We have been holding outdoor prayer meetings at that park in 
Blue Springs, and we sense something quite special about the 
place and also the timing of this event. The prayer meetings 
have been particularly precious times with God.


Personally, I believe that two of the topics I need to preach on
that weekend are "The Elijahs of God" and "The Coming Revival
and Great Shaking". 

I also know that one of the things Bryan Hupperts will be speaking
on is "The Wilderness Experience" - which he is surely qualified
to speak about from a very personal perspective. He has many
insights in this area.

And we have another speaker confirmed now - brother Lawrence
Banda (ex-Zambia in Africa). God brought him to this nation 
miraculously with no money at all (-even for the plane flight) and
he preaches on Revival and prayer. For the past 18 months his
prayer group has held 6:00am prayer meetings 5 days a week,
and God is truly moving.

Of course, this Gathering is not just about the speakers - it is
about fellowshipping and confirming with others the things that
God has been speaking to your heart. There will be ample 
opportunity to meet and fellowship with other like-minded people 
from your region.

PLEASE REPLY to this email if you are thinking of attending,
my friends? (If you cannot make it then we would sure appreciate
your prayers).

Nearby Camping Grounds:

Somebody asked me if there are places for Camping, and so I have
included that information below, along with the motels and hotels.
Remember, there are JUST TWO WEEKS to go to this event, so 
you need to reserve your rooms or camping sites NOW if you wish
to attend. (-The phone numbers for Reservations are all below). 

Here are the details for the whole event:

The "GATHERING" - Independence Weekend (July 3-4).
-OUTDOORS at 'Railroad Park', BLUE SPRINGS. 
 (-just outside Kansas City, Missouri).

There is NO CHARGE to attend this Gathering. -No
registration fee at all. It will take place over two days and 
simple offerings will be taken to cover expenses, etc. We 
are expecting people from many surrounding states to attend.

PURPOSE of the Gathering:  We believe we are at a
"turning point" and a 'change of season' in God's dealings
with the church. Over the 2 days there will be speakers 
and worship, opportunities for discussion, a chance to meet 
and fellowship with like-minded people from your OWN CITY
or Region and so-on.

SPEAKERS:  Bryan Hupperts, Andrew Strom and Lawrence

LOCATION:  'Railroad Park' is a beautiful family park with
extensive children's playgrounds, ponds and a large gazebo 
stage which we have rented for the two days. It is very close 
to Interstate I-70, close to hotels, motels and food outlets, etc. 
One of the most ideal parks for this kind of event. -A lovely setting.

To get to Railroad Park, take Interstate I-70 towards Blue Springs, 
Missouri. Take the "7 Highway" exit (-the sign says 'Blue Springs, 
Lake Lotowana') and head south. Go through two traffic lights and 
you will come to the 'Vesper Street' intersection. Turn left onto 
Vesper Street and you will see the Park entrance on your right. 
(There is further parking in the 'Vesper Hall' parking lot down the 
street). You will see the Gazebo when you walk into the Park.

TIMES:  -Sat, July 3 - SESSIONS:  (1)  10:00am to 12:00,
(2) 1:00pm to 3:00pm,  (3)  6:00pm to 8:30pm.
-SUNDAY, July 4 - SESSIONS:  (1)  10:00am to 12:00, 
(2) 1:00pm to 3:00pm,  (3) 5:30pm to 8:00pm.

NOTE: We break for lunch at 12:00 to 1:00pm each day. There 
are food outlets nearby. Also, there is no 3:00pm session due to 
the heat at that time of day. 

(Remember to bring your fold-up chair, large umbrella (?) and 
something to drink to each session).

know that you are with the 'Outdoor Christian gathering' in
