A trembling 19-year-old kid kneels by his bed in Santa Barbara and prays. A pile of papers is on the floor beside him. They are why he prays so fervently. This teenager will attempt to do what only attorneys should do.
He is filling out forms to become a ministry incorporated in California, and legally recognized by the IRS. He is asking the Holy Spirit to direct each answer he places on those daunting legal forms. Finally, he mails them. And yeah, that was me.
It feels like a moment ago when I—still shaking with insecurity—dropped those forms into the mail box. I remember choking back fear. Had I just done something terribly wrong? Had I opened myself up to federal prosecution?
Months passed. Then there was a letter from the IRS. Have you ever gotten a letter that you were dying to open and yet terrified to open? I stared at that envelope a long time. It felt like a Christmas present from your worst enemy.
I took it somewhere private and slowly opened it. I risked one eye. I read it out loud. We were approved by California and the Federal Government. Wow! That was the beginning of Mario Murillo Ministries 50 years ago!
Thus began an astounding journey that can rival anything in the Book of Acts. Nevertheless, through glory and storms we stand today as a growing force for God.
This is cause for celebration and wow do we have the celebration for you. July 4th through July 7th at New Life Church in Houston TX, Mario Murillo Ministries will present a once-in-a-lifetime Spirit-filled Jubilee! My special guests are Bill Johnson and Perry Stone.
I am proud and excited that these amazing vessels of God will join me to commemorate this historic milestone, and to launch a new era of signs and wonders evangelism. There is no question the power of God will fall and new ministries will be born. We will see an astonishing display of the power and glory of God.
Hold on, there is so much more. Along with Bill Johnson and Perry Stone we will have the emerging voices of soul winning and revival: Sean Smith, Brian Barcelona, and Isaiah Saldivar. Not only that, Chris Burns will be leading worship in every session.
There is no doubt that you need to be there. Even more important—because this Anniversary Celebration will fill up fast—you need to act now. And get this…there is no charge for you and your group to attend. However, you must register. To register click on this link now.
