What Does God’s Kingdom Look Like?

I recently spoke with a group of men from southern California, parents of students at Ontario Christian High School, who accompanied their kids on a trip to Lesotho, Africa, and experienced God’s Kingdom in a tangible way.

Dads Kevin Hardy, Perry Eichor, Chris Congleton, and Bryan Vander Tuig discuss their experiences of traveling to Lesotho with their kids, seeing and experiencing God moving and working with them and through them during their time in Lesotho. The groups teacher/leader, Jeremy Zuidema of Ontario Christian, also relates how God provided for him to step out of his comfort zone to embark on the trip and was faithful beyond expectations in blessing the group’s time and efforts.

Tim Spykstra Discusses Climbing Prayer Mountain

I recently spoke with Henry Miersma about my new prayer devotional, Climbing Prayer Mountain. Here are some quotes from the conversation:

“It’s crazy how Climbing Prayer Mountain came together, but God put this book on the front burner… So I think He has something for it. I think that especially in the days that we’re living in… God is calling his body, His beautiful Bride, to seek His face. When we seek Him, we find Him.”

“Prayer is that incredible vehicle that brings us deeper into the heart of God, and that love relationship with God. That brings us the strength, the security, and the joy we need to make it in challenging days.”

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.

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.
