Take a look into the past to hear the testimony of a praying pioneer by the name of Erik Stadell (Founder of the Swedish Mission SOS) and how God used him to help pray the US Center for World Mission into existence. He was praying for the vacant Nazarene Bible College campus when Dr. Winter, a professor at Fuller Seminary, was looking into the possibilities of starting a new missions center focused on unreached peoples. This was a radical step of faith seeing he had less than $100 to his name once he started to believe God for the property in 1976. This historical footage includes an introduction by Dr. Ralph D. Winter, the founder of the USCWM, as well as some closing remarks and a prayer that is relevant for us today. It is a great reminder that when God wants something to happen on Earth, he first looks for someone willing to agree with his purposes through prayer. This is only 6 minutes of a 45 minute testimony.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSPBiWYb1sA

the power of prayer
ArthurRosh,I visited the USCWM in Pasadena, CA in the 1980's when Dr. and Mrs. Winter were both still alive. God has used the US Center for World Mission.I liked the YouTube video. I liked your thread. God does respond to prayer that aligns with His Word. Blessings are lost while prayers remain unspoken. Thank you for sharing.
