Pray Ekballo! – An Interview with Michele Bennett and Danny Unterkofler

The Greek word Ekballo means “to hurl, thrust or propel.” It is a forceful action as opposed to a passive one, like when you are thrown into a situation and you don’t have control. In today’s podcast, I interview two of my friends – Michele Bennett and Danny Unterkofler – whom God has thrust into the harvest fields in such a manner.

Michele Bennett is preparing to move from Chino, California to Maseru, Lesotho, Africa, to assume the role of operations manager at Beautiful Gate, Lesotho. As you listen, notice how God pursued and called Michele over the course of several years time.

Danny and his wife Kaylyn are an anointed ministry team that serve a church in Orange County, California. Danny shares how his journey has progressed and how God has showed Himself faithful through the development of new relationships.

Please keep Oceans in prayer as we seek to make the Love of the Father Known around the world.

Following the Father’s Voice, Kirstein Interview

I had the blessing of interviewing Lindiwe & Peter Kirstein back in June, the soon-to-be directors at Beautiful Gate Care Center in Lesotho Africa. Their story of following God’s voice to become directors is amazing. I pray that you will be inspired as well to follow the voice of Abba Father in your life.

The Ripple Effects of Faith

While in Africa I had the blessing of doing a podcast with Bryan & Anita Geurink, directors of Beautiful Gate Care Center in Lesotho. The Geurink’s step of faith has had a ripple effect that God has used to transform lives all over the world. As I listened again to their remarkable “yes” to God’s call and the specific details of their daily journey, I was challenged anew to listen to the promptings of the Holy Spirit and step out of the boat. I pray you will be blessed!

Reflecting on 40 Day Prayer Challenge with Ray Spykstra

I had the privilege of interviewing my dad, Ray Spykstra for this podcast. Listen in as he shares some amazing stories from his experience of reading and giving away over a 100 “Draw the Circle – The 40-Day Prayer Challenge,” books by Mark Batterson.

One of the stories he shares in the podcast is about a man named John Bandimere, one of the owners of Bandimere Speedway in Colorado. Right after our podcast my dad received a letter from John telling my dad that all 7 of his siblings started the “Prayer Challenge.”

I hope you will be blessed by listening to this Podcast and hearing how the Holy Spirit is moving through the prayers of His people.
