Revival In Hermiston Anchor Point Church

In October, the Anchor Point Church in Hermiston, Ore, was blessed by the ministry of Lee and Margie Venden. For 10 days members gathered nightly to hear about Jesus. Hearts were warmed and revived as the Holy Spirit moved in and through all. Like Lee said, it’s really all about Jesus — the answer to our lethargy and needs. Attendees learned about SOAP—a simple mnemonic for studying scripture.

S—scripture—read it slowly and with prayer

O—observation—meditate on and imagine the scene

A—application—ask “what is God saying to me in this?”

P—prayer—prayerfully apply the passage to your life for that day

In December, the church celebrated three re-baptisms, all a direct result of Lee’s meetings. What a blessing it is when we can remember that by lifting up Jesus, everything else falls into place. “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness (Jesus) and all these things will be added unto you.” It’s like the old hymn says “…and the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His Glory and Grace.” Nothing inspires and changes lives like Jesus!
