VISION AND PARTNERSHIP
OUR HEARTS FOR THIS REGION....
1. Establish a 24/7 house of prayer that will be open to the Upper Cumberland region in Tennessee.
2. Open up healing rooms for counseling and inner healing. Facilitating Holy Spirit's guidance and voice to bring healing and set free those in darkness and addiction.
3. Invite student interns from all over the world to spend a season at Restoration House. . Reveal to them who Jesus really is, who they are, and birth in them a compassion for the unreached.
Before we are anything, we belong to Jesus. Our identity is not in what we do, but who we belong to. We are not missionaries, pastors, workers....we are children; Children of God. Everything we do flows from our identities of being God's son, His daughter. The overarching words on the scroll of our lives are "Marcus and Andrea, children of God". We, like little kids, are totally dependent on our "Daddy", our Father in Heaven. In His goodness, He has released us into the dark Buddhist nation of Thailand. We spent 3 years in Thailand and worked hard and honestly didn't see many results. The darkness of the nation was so great and many times that darkness had us pinned, retreating, and cowering in the corner. We came back from Thailand with such brokenness and confusion. The last 2 years, God has done a deep work in our hearts and shown us the battle is not against flesh and blood and cannot be fought with carnal weapons, like programs or man authored ideas. The battle in the Spirit has to be fueled by prayer, His presence and in a place of total dependence. We are here in Cookeville, TN to birth a 24/7 prayer house. Our goal is to have every second of the day bathed in prayer and worship. This will bring freedom. The chains will be broken and the darkness will retreat not from our efforts but from the place of prayer. This is the first step for us. Moving forward, we want Restoration House to be a place where people can come get inner healing and realize who they are and the destiny God has over their lives.
Through student interns from all over the world, we want to them to receive healing and implant in them the prayer room DNA and take it to the nations. . There is so much more stewing in our hearts that God hasn't put legs to yet, but we know that everything, and I mean everything, has to be fueled and bathed with prayer.
