Episode #11| God confirms HIS plan for Cross America – against all the odds (Part 2 of 3)
Romans 8:28 | And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
In this episode, part 2 of 3 the founders of Cross America continue to share about the seed that was planted in their life to be obedient to God’s calling to start this ministry. In 2017, Terry realized that not everyone in the country had heard the Gospel message, or Romans 10:9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Through this, God reminded Terry to simply “Go and Tell” and to not make it too complicated.
After praying and sharing this vision from God with his wife, Terry acted on the plan. During the start up process, they were met with resistance, health issues and obstacles – but God prevailed. He was thankful for the boldness to take the first step. After that God surrounded him with the right people, the right resources at just the right time.
During this entire process Terry was able to find a solution to his health challenges when he was diagnosed with a form of Cystic Fibrosis, a disorder that damages your lungs, digestive tract and other organs. This revelation opened their eyes to the overall health issues that had been the thorn in His side since 1981. Terry has outlasted his health issues. Before opening Cross America, his lung function was down to 46 percent. He takes a life-changing medication TRIKAFTA on a daily basis which has enabled him to have a lung function of 62 percent.
Every detail about the physical building for Cross America Community Center was inspired by God. He gave Terry visions that clearly spoke to appealing to the five senses in the human body. (sight, sound, smell, touch and taste.) You really feel the presence of God when you enter and spend time at Cross America.
