Following are photos of "Victoria" of the Hosanna Worship Healing Center. (victoria0675@yahoo.co.kr) She is one of many emerging leaders in Korea who are passionate to build house of prayer and worship. Also pictured is the mountain property on which she wants to build the 24 center....it is within sight of North Korea and you can see the people of NK with binoculars.

Pray the Holy Spirit gives these leaders provision and resources to build these "lighthouses" of God's glory.

If the Lord gives you an encouraging word, feel free to email her.

Graham Cooke Video

This interview with Graham summerizes everything.



Question: I heard you recently speak about present-past people. Can you elaborate on that?

Graham's reply:

Two kinds of people exist in God's Kingdom: those who live from their present to their past, and those who live from their present to the future.
Present-past people have to be broken of that outlook by God. All too often, we are tied to an event or issue in the past. Sometimes, it's a wound or a betrayal or a particular sin. The truth is that if we are going to be anyone of stature in the Kingdom of God, we must learn the art of being healed. No one has the right to be wounded, only a right to be healed. Jesus bought that right with His own blood and sacrifice. He literally died so you and I could be free. Our call is to cast off our grave clothes, quit moaning or pretending to be dead, and to live the destiny God has put before us.
Present-past people have to break that backward-looking cycle before they can be accelerated into the fullness of God. If you are tied to your past and receive a word, it is impossible to move directly to the manifestation of that word. God has a process for us to break free from the past, be healed, and then move into our destiny. God will plunge you into a season of confrontation, and the revelation that could take you upwards will in fact drag you down until you and God work through these issues.

Friends of Friends of Friends

I'm often asked what are the values or convictions which are a part of the company of friends we meet. I like one definition of the church the best: simply....friends of friends of friends.

Here is Gary Goodell's list of values...I like them...I identify with them, and thought I'd include it fo your reference.

Our Persuasions

1) We believe that the God of the Bible is wild and free, safe but not tame, unfathomable, uncontainable, and unpredictable, and yet able to be known intimately. 2) We believe that conversion is the consummate God-encounter, and that divine encounters and Holy Spirit sightings are an ongoing part of a person’s spiritual journey. 3) We believe in the full vesting and gifting of God’s people by the Holy Spirit, and that all the gifts of the Spirit are for today and are to be eagerly desired and used by faith. 4) We believe in the priesthood of all believers, and that every believer is called to do the work of the ministry as part of the body of Christ. 5) We believe “that permission has been granted to do church differently in the 21st Century,” and commit to helping believers to "be the church" wherever they go. 6) We believe that radical worship is a lifestyle, and is to be extravagant in its many expressions. 7) We believe that love, servanthood and generosity define all aspects of church life. 8) We believe the central theme of the New Testament, both taught and demonstrated by Jesus, is the message of the Kingdom of God. 9) We believe that the Regional Church is in fact a series or network of smaller Simple Churches that can gather within the given locale for worship and equipping.

Our Practices

1) The simpler the structure, the better.2) When we gather, it should be fun as much as it is important. 3) Our worship gatherings are for God, not for us, or the people we are trying to attract. 4) We endeavor to model a fail-safe environment that gives room for people to make mistakes as they grow in the things of the Spirit. And that the flow of the Spirit often is as messy and unpredictable as it is powerful. 5) We embrace children and youth as part of the believing community, and include them in our gatherings as fellow worshipers and ministers. 6) We believe that the Local Church does not “do” small groups, but that the Local Church “is” a small group where everyone participates.7) We are called to discern the times and seasons, and catch how to minister "in the moment." 8) We understand the "changing of the guard" in this current move of the Spirit, and that true apostolic fathers and mothers are noted by their cry that their sons and daughters will overtake them.9) We recognize that the more we pursue God as a prophetic people; the less our lives will be explainable.

Worship at the River Watchmen at the River

Newsletter of Pacific Ministries’ monthly meetings February, 2008

at Glenn Otto Community Park, Troutdale, Oregon.

Our hearts ache for your moving.

Oh, come and speak Your Word.

Breathe the breath of life into our souls.

We hunger for you, Lord.

A yearning, as deep calls to deep.

Observations of what the Lord has begun in our lives:

a) New newsletter, reviewing in writing, our meetings and God’s movement in our midst.

b) Prayer Centers – A passion for prayer is the primary motive; it teaches how to rest in Christ.

Kansas City

North Korea in 1907

c) God is speeding up transitions and opening up new opportunities and relationships;

similar to Joshua, when he led God’s people into the promised land.

d) We will experience more battles as we reach out in intercessory prayer; usually, we

experience worship first.

e) We need to tune in to the Lord and what He is doing, like the right channel that water flows


f) We will be dealing with those who are not the sheep of the Good Shepherd, similar to

Haman in the life of Esther. They may be outside the church or even inside, claiming to be

Christians, but with the heart and actions like Haman.

g) There is a purifying, similar to a silver anvil or a volcano of fire, with the Lord’s moving.

h) There is a process of building in the Lord, a call to the land; it is waiting to be free, as in

the following:

“The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed.

For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice,

but by the will of the One who subjected it, in hope that the creation

itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the

glorious freedom of the children of God.” Romans 8:19-21

i) The Holy Spirit is convicting our hearts of offenses against the land; the land groans

because it has been raped and depleted. We may not fully understand, but we need to

ask forgiveness for prostituting the gift of worship.

j) We may be too close to understand fully what this new beginning is about; it is not the

“name it & claim it” false doctrine, but rather a decree with a scriptural basis. We are

Declaring God’s truth and are operating out of our destiny in Christ and walking in

authority, not in presumption.

Transition to a worship that is active and honors God and His creation:

The Lord loves the sound of this place, the sound of our worship.

We just want to tell you we love you,

we love the way you love.

In the place where you are, lift up praise. Soprano and baritone, we glorify His Name.

You are worthy of praise, so worthy.

I will love you with all of my heart.

I will love you with all of my soul.

I will love you with all of my strength,

all of my days.

Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord.

You are worthy, worthy.

There is only One Most High.

There is only one Lord Jesus.

Glory to the Righteous One.

People will choose which door; Jesus will separate. He will honor and bless those who choose to follow Him.

We are on our knees in repentance.

Here is my heart; cleanse my heart today.

Outside of you, there is no light.

We surrender, we surrender. (echoes fill the air)

Prophetic Words spoken:

1) As His people come before Him, pure in heart,

His living water will come gushing forth – we’re right there!

2) The Lord brings the fire of the Holy Spirit – protects us from anything that is not of the

Lord, refining our lives.

How we love your fire!

How we love your flame!

Come inside my heart.

Burn in me again.

Burn away all the dross.

Count it all but loss.

Burn it all away. (three times)

Until we see your face.

May we be like snow.

Purify as a goldsmith refines gold.

May the Father see the pure in heart,

and never let us go.

“Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and parish.”

Isaiah 41:10,11

Pure gold pours down, reflecting Christ, seeking lowly places, as in the following:

“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up.” James 4:10

Surrender, servant’s heart.

Give it all to Him, cheerful giver.

You will be my satisfaction, Oh Lord.

Jesus is with me in the garden, not my will – Your will be done.

I glue myself to you – my body, soul, spirit,

That I may be with you,

Move with you.

I seek you first, Lord.

I have a greater thirst for Your Word.

I lay aside everything that would hinder my being with you,

Less of me and more of you,

That is what I say,

Jesus, every day.

I will rest; I will wait; I will abide,

for as long as it takes, for you to produce a fruit in me.

Abide, abide, I will abide in the vine.

Prophetic words:

1) A white horse with a bit in his mouth, the Lord is pulling him out of danger.

2) God is raising us up to a higher level, to see spiritual things He is seeing.


A new union with You, Lord.

A common union with you, Lord.

Jesus’ blood washes us as white as snow.

We celebrate this day.

There’s healing in the blood.

We partake in the bread of life.

We abide in you.

Prophetic themes:

1) This place in time, the Holy Spirit flows in tenderness.

2) Farther and farther into the river, in canoes, into the Father.

3) He is making it possible for Him to be our One and Only.

4) It is the love of God that compels us.

5) We are the reflection of Jesus in us.

6) Blessing over the gatekeepers of the land; angels ‘round about us.

Jesus wore a crown of thorns; we have a helmet of salvation.

He is pouring Living Waters on our hearts; we are pure in heart.

REMINDER...No Worship at the River gathering this Sunday

Pacificministries Friends,

Last Thursday evening we gathered for our February Worship at the River meeting. There was a wonderful sense of God's presence, and you may read a synopsis on our blog at (http://pacificministries.blogspot.com) within a few days.

Normally we meet the second Sunday of each month, but we are in Seattle at a conference Ray Hughes (you can watch over the net at (http://www.rcftv.net) and then Sunday and Monday evening with Jim Watt, commemorating the 60th anniversary of the 1948 North Battlefield outpouring.

Please remember to pray as I (Darrell) will be partnering with Pastor David Park in several cities in Korea February 15-29)....teaching and ministering on Worship and intimacy.

Many of you know Karen Kolzow. She wrote an absolutely "spot on" word which I've posted on our blot site as well.

Worship at the River will resume Sunday evening March 9th at 6pm.

Bless you!

Darrell and Carlene

Worship at the River Watchmen at the River

Newsletter of Pacific Ministries’ monthly meetings

at Glenn Otto Community Park, Troutdale, Oregon.

Scribe – Freda Emmons January, 2008

We are seekers, Lord.

It is more important to be with you, Lord,

than to hear from You.

We are hungry for you, Lord.

Thank you for leading us to a full knowledge of Jesus.

7 years of Worship at the River, although at first in another location.

This year is one of transition; we are entrusting our steps to the Lord God.

This year is the end of the beginning and the beginning of the end.

8 signifies a new beginning; 2008 is a year for separating ourselves for a holy purpose.

We seek Your Presence in every endeavor.

Unless you are with us, Lord, we do not really want to do it.

Humbled by Your Word and Your Majesty,

we seek Your Glory!

“Joshua told the people, ‘Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.’ ”

Joshua 3:5

We followed the prophetic act of Joshua, as he led God’s chosen people around the city of Jericho; in silence they marched 7 times and then at the sound of the trumpet, proclaimed victory in God. We marched in silent prayer, and watched in awe the walls that came down as we shouted our victory in Christ Jesus, or Lord and Savior. (Personal walls the Spirit spoke to my heart were walls of sorrow, of loss and of poverty – all busted in the power of His might.) Victory is ours in Christ, for the taking of territory, just as it was for Joshua and the people of God.

Each one of us carries an anointing of the Lord, for His work in us and through us.

Change / Transition - in our government, the election process.

- in this place

- in families

We acknowledge Your Presence as we experience change.

We receive the wind of the Holy Spirit

And trust in your Power to move from the west, even here in the Northwest

To pave the way and develop the platform for Your purpose.

We are a part of the Remnant and the Army of this region.

We are transitioning to be Watchmen at the River.

Our Lord is providing Restoration of the Land, to the purposes He has ordained.

From the civic governing body to the will of His Spirit, we commend this land to Him.

This place at the River is sacred land; we honor it.

We join in unity of the Holy Spirit, in peace, gentleness, humbleness, and in the truth of Him who is our Creator – to be

The Watchmen at the River.

We hold the authority of God over this place;

we have prayed over its gates and anointed them with oil.

In the realm of spiritual authority, we have renamed this place to be

The Land of My Spirit.

Prophetic Words over this re-dedicated and consecrated Land of My Spirit and the work of God through His people here:

1. “Praise be to the Name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are His. He changes time and seasons; He sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; He knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with Him.” Daniel 2:20-22

2. The Tent of Meeting, the season and appointed time

3. A Place called Beautiful - the right time

- the right place

4. Bring your children here - a place to bless children

5. “Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring - those who obey God’s commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.” Revelation 12:17

6. Now has come the authority of Christ!

7. “Then the Lord said to Joshua, ‘Today I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you.’ ” Joshua 5:9

8. Whatever our need, God has removed the attacks from Satan and wants to provide generous blessings.

9. God will renew His Spirit in those who are His. Spiritual and physical digestions are similar. The prophetic must be digested. It is refreshing to our spirit.

10. We are a company. God will accompany each of us, releasing funds for all of us.


Just a reminder we are meeting this month on Thursday, Feb. 7th at 7pm at our normal meeting place at the Glenn Otto Park in Troutdale. We are changing ONLY THIS MONTH...and will resume our second Sunday meeting on March 9th.

We are adjusting our schedule because of a series of meetings and events in Seattle (see below)

Carlene and I returned from a week of meetings in Los Angeles with Graham Cooke and Gary Goodell, I spoke at a Korean Church, and spent a wonderful afternoon with our son Matthew during his Sunday liberty day. He is facing a final test of his training this Wednesday....a 15K mountain hike. Thanks for praying for him.

Looking forward to seeing you on this Thursday at 7pm.

Darrell and Carlene

Anniversary of the Later Rain Revival this weekend at St. Luke's.

After Bible School students and faculty sought the Lord for some months, the Holy Spirit poured out in North Battleford, Saskatchewan (Canada) on February 11th, 1948. This move of the Holy Spirit brought a joy and warmth to worship and restored ancient New Testament practices with new power – The Presbytery, Five-Fold Ministry, etc. This movement's influence is still evident in several streams of the Pentecostal/Charismatic Movements.

Although several aberrations became evident in the Latter Rain early into the outpouring, the positive legacy of this work of the Holy Spirit continues to bless the Church.

St. Luke's will be hosting Jim and Marie Watt for two evenings of sharing –

Sunday February 10th (7 PM) – followed by a 24-hour Prayer Vigil

Monday February 11th (7 PM) – the actual anniversary date!

Jim Watt is the last surviving member of the original seven elders from the 1948 summer camp meetings. He and Marie bring a wealth of experience and wisdom in the Holy Spirit.

Each evening will feature worship, led by Darrell and Carlene Dahlman followed by the Watts sharing in an interview format.

Themes –

Sunday Night – Joyful and Intimate Worship, plus the Angelic Choir

Monday Night – Five-Fold Ministry and the Prophetic Presbytery

Please plan to join us. Kindly share this information with family and friends! God Bless! -John+
