Helping Us Minister the Healing Love of God through Messiah Ministries

Dear Friends of Tommy Hays & Messiah Ministries,

In this time of year when we join with the family of God throughout the earth to celebrate the birth of this Holy Child who changed our world, we also celebrate all the ways He is still our "Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6, fulfilled in Jesus the Christ, our Messiah).

Thank you for joining with me and our ministry team at Messiah Ministries to minister the healing love of God through all the opportunties and encounters the Lord has opened for us to be an expression of His power and grace at home and abroad.

Just in the past few days, I've seen a man on his knees crying out to God with all his heart to be totally devoted to Him and a woman literally jumping for joy after being emptied out of years of bondage and pain. I shouted with joy with the pastor and friends of a little girl set free from a tremendous amount of suffering and pain--all by the mercy and love of our God, who is still healing the brokenhearted and setting the captives free.

Just this fall, we've been able to help teach and equip many believers sensing the call to be used by God in His ministry of inner healing -- healing from the inside out. I was excited to be able to share this message in amazing ways among the pastoral leaders at their clergy schools and reatreats in Texas, West Virginia, and the nation of Estonia. Through our Schools of Ministry in Lexington and Austin, through our emmerging partnership in ministry with Rapha God Ministries and Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, through the men's retreat in North Carolina and the campmeeting for the Feast of Tabernacles in Kentucky and so many churches and encounters along the way, we've seen our God moving mightily in His power and love to heal His people and prepare His bride.

Thank you for being a vital partner with us through all your prayers, encouragement and financial support. And thank you for continuing to join with me personally in my own journey of healing through a heartbreaking time, trusting the grace and redeeming power of our loving God. I'm truly excited and expectant to look and see what the Lord will do in this next season ahead! We know the Lord always uses all we go through to glorify His name if we entrust ourselves to Him and His care.

From Heather Butler who faithfully leads our Intercessory Prayer Team from her home in Wales, from Bob and Doris McCray who tirelessly lead the weekly prayers for Israel, from Susan, Sabrina, Jane, John, Jeffery and Tina, Amy and Gary, Brooke and Shannon, and all who join with us as prayer partners, worship leaders and volunteers, we thank you for helping us fulfill our calling of "Preparing the Way of the Lord ... Ministering the Healing Love of God."

We earnestly invite you to continue to join with us by your prayers and financial support. Your prayer covering is truly essential and your financial support is greatly appreciated, whether monthly or whenever the Holy Spirit moves you to partner with us to share this message and ministry of healing and hope to a hurting generation. We don't charge set fees for ministry, but joyfully welcome your generous contributions to help make this ministry available to all.

Please let me know if you would like me to speak with you personally about our vision and emmerging plans of partnerships in ministry through the Lord's amazing open doors of opportunity in this season ahead. May the Spirit of God fill your heart and home with all the peace and joy of Jesus our Messiah this Christmas season and throughout the New Year to come.

God bless you and Merry Christmas!

In the Love of Jesus,

Tommy Hays
