In Korea on the way to Mongola



We (Paul and I) are waiting in the Seoul airport to transfer planes to the capital city of Mongolia.  We will have a busy schedule meeting with pastors and leaders....and may not get to a computer any  time soon.  Thank you for praying for us...and we treasure your intercessory prayer covering.
 Following is
information regarding Paul Vermes, who will be with me in Mongolia and
in Korea.  We will team together as arrows sent from the Pacific

I (Darrell) do not take these assignments lightly.  Following are prophetic
words spoken over Carlene and I over the past few days regarding this
trip to Mongolia. I transcribed them from audio recordings.  I offer them as jump off points of prayer and
intercession.  Some of them are prophetic in some of them are blessings
spoken over us.  There is and has been a challenge with the preparation
and timing of this mission, and I am unashamedly asking for you to ask
the Lord about covering fire for this adventure.

Prayers From Area Leaders
Apostolic Leader's


We cannot do
this... you must do this...we  speak an impartation of direction,
protection, and provision.  All that was in the cloud by day and the
pillar of fire by night, Lord go on ahead.  In him, upon him, around
him, and through him, as well as the team.  Do exceedingly and
abundantly above all that we are able to ask or think according to the
power that works in this right now.  We thank you for the dynamic in
this room life now, in Darrell right now, in intercession and
proclamation we declare abundance over this journey.


the God of hope fill you with great joy, as you trust in him.  Thank
you for guiding and directing everything that is said.  It's for your
purposes and your glory... open the doors of the hearts of pastors and
leaders and let your word come freely and powerfully.  May the word
have its full impact because you said your word would not return void. 
Lord we send him, with an apostolic blessing.  This apostolic blessing
is going to be protection.

Pacificministries Fellowship


 You are an
extension of each one of us, thank you for binding us to him that we
can be a part of this.  You will guide his steps and his voice.  He
will speak for all of us in describing the wonderful things you have
done.  We speak unity into the church in Mongolia.  Open ears to hear
about relationships with you and with each other.


Thank you for the supernatural power flowing through
Darrell.  He is your hands extended to this country.  Thank you that
you will empower him to do much beyond what he even thought the in the
name of Jesus.  We thank you for your supernatural protection.  For his
family here while he is away to hear what you're saying to them.


Lord as a father, give him supernatural words of
wisdom for this country.  That power would flow from you into the hands
of these young pastors like Elijah.  If they were shoot their arrows
straight.  Spiritual milestones will be accomplished on this trip.


If you would send Lord a great company of Angels
around the property and the buildings and surround the pastors and the
people that will be attending these meetings.  May the enemy be held
back and that hearts will be opened and humbled and broken.  Any spirit
of poverty or the making of money through the gospel would go because
of humility.  Awakening in them the bride of Christ... that we are in
relationship with you.  Come Holy Spirit that we would be getting our
garments ready... clean and white.  Lord coming and set straight what
might be off.  Bring your beauty realm into this country.


Already now you have planted a seed in the hearts of these people.  As Darrell steps off the airplane darkness would leave.


that Darrell would move in the divine not only in the old-fashioned
sense but in the areas of the country which have deep wells and rich
deposits... and that he would teach them how to dig... how to mine
these riches in Mongolia.


Lord that these people would return to their first
love and with walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have
called them to.  That Darrell would present the bridegroom calling out
to the bride.  That Darrell would see it, would sense and would teach
this.  Lord open up their eyes of understanding.  They would see a
revelation of you that would be so profound that the only reaction
would be falling deeper in love with you.  Bless them with discernment
in every way.


Lord thank you for Darrell and Carlene and their
marriage... a strong marriage that is based on you that would withstand
everything that happens in our lives.  You are big and you are great. 
There would be such a oneness even though separated.  Through the
spirit... that they would know without a doubt they are one.  Do
something very special between them.  Lord thank you for a freshness,
for healing these sores must go than the name of Jesus.  We ask for
cleansing in her body... give her peace.  The Lord has carried all
sickness in his body.


He is doing a heart change in the deepest parts of
your being.  I see you on a plain... this trip will be different you
will stand with your arms opened and your hands raised.  What you will
speak will not need translation.  He is going to bring you to greater
freedom.  Just be who you are

The word is lightning bolt.


How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news and news of happiness.


I saw a picture of a pebble or a stone... and there will be a ripple effect... it will keep spreading out.  


All the things that you have experienced all the
things that you have gone through will have a ripple affect.  Bring the
pastors back to their first love.  Love the Lord your God with all of
your heart and soul mind and strength... and love each other.  The
arrow to Mongolia will affect China, Russia.


You are not going to Mongolia to work for the Lord, but to work with him.  Open up ears and eyes to hear every word from you.

This is from a brother who was heard us share on Sunday....he has been to the country:



Karl Petit


Mongolia”, says the Lord, “ is my Diamond in the Rough”……The
Lord loves to take those defeated, those scattered, those barren, those
who do not realize their identity, those seemingly lacking purpose,
and turn them  into His treasures!!!  He will raise up Mongolia
out of the ashes and display His Glory, His Splendor, and His Majesty
to her and through her.  Mongolia will be a nation of Princes and
Priest who will walk in a very deep intimate revelation of who Jesus
Christ is .

Peter 2:1-10

laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil speaking,
2 as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow
thereby,   3 if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

are His chose stone, and His chosen people.

Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen
by God and precious, 5 you also, as living stones, are being built
up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood
, to offer up spiritual sacrifices
acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 Therefore it is
also contained in the Scripture,

I lay in Zion

chief cornerstone, elect, precious,

he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame."  

Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious; but to those who are

stone which the builders rejected

become the chief cornerstone,"  


stone of stumbling

a rock of offense."

stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed.

But you MON GOLIA are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy
nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of
Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 who
once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained
mercy but NOW have obtained mercy.

Asia and the Pacific Ocean, and across the Northwest Coast of the USA.

the one ingredient that the stew simply cannot do without!!

A handful
of some of the most anointed Men of God to ever walk on the face of
this planet will emerge from Mongolia. 


me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given,
that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,
9 and to make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from
the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things
through Jesus Christ;   10 to the intent that now the manifold
wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities
and powers in the heavenly places,  11 according to the eternal
purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, 12 in whom we
have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him.

dear brothers will be laid down lovers of Jesus, firm in the embrace
of Father God.  Fierce Warriors…. In fact…Key end time Royal
Kings, that will topple and destroy serious principalities.  Causing
a shift and a ripple effect in the Spirit World, that will result in
a domino effect of Breakthrough and Blessing for all of the earth.
Extraordinary signs and wonders will follow the believers in Mongolia.

A Reunion, a Report, a Request, and a Reminder

Dear Friends,

A Reunion

Carlene and I are celebrating the return of our number two son Matthew after nearly 7 months serving in Iraq.  There are no appropriate words to describe what it meant to our family to see him turn the corner at the Portland airport and embrace him.  There are no substitutes for a hug.  Matthew is grateful for many who prayed for him and he recalled situations where he was totally depending on God's wisdom to accomplish his mission. His unit was the last Marine Company to leave Iraq, and Matthew was selected out of a hundred fellow Marines to receive a medal.

He's a great storyteller, and we laughed at his creativity and impact on his fellow Marines.  I'll share briefly one of these stories:

The Marine commander of his unit required all military people to destroy shelters that had been constructed during their operation and in the 120° heat, left the Marines with literally no shade.  Matthew promised his buddies on their return from a daylong mission that somehow he would have shade for them.  Matthew's primary role was an engineer working with large earth moving bulldozers which were effective in destroying earthen berms which insurgents utilized to conceal their activities.  Matthew decided to uproot palm trees with his earth mover and literally created an oasis in the desert with the transported trees.  The guys strung up lights and built a barbecue pit... and the result?  Matt's Bar and Grill, complete with palm trees for shade.

A Report

On another note, Carlene and I were a part of a leadership event which brought together leaders from Spokane, Vancouver British Columbia, Seattle, and the Portland area.  Our guest was Jim Watt, an 86 year old "young man" who is the last surviving elder of the 1948 latter rain revival.  His vision for the four cities of the Pacific Northwest was powerful.  He has been a mentor for us for seven years.  You may find information concerning his Ministry on his web site:

A Request

Equally meaningful were the prayers from our Pacificministries fellowship and other leaders for my trip to Mongolia.  I leave Sunday, August 30 for eight days in the capital city Ubantar, where pastors and other leaders will gather from other cities for worship and encouragement.  I will include updates for this assignment and specific prayer points in a few days, and you can follow all posts on our blog.  I will also include audio podcasts and pictures. We especially hunger for your prayers for our family while I am gone.  The timing of this mission is difficult for our family.  Thank you for your intercession.

A Reminder

Please mark your calendar for:

Worship at the River

Sunday, September 20, 2009  6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
(please note that this is the third Sunday in the month, but beginning in October, we will consistently meet at our Troutdale community center on the second Sunday's of every month from 6 to 9 p.m.)

Sunday, October 11

Matt Home

My sister and her family greeted Matt when he got off the bus. He had no idea my sister was back from vacation and was not expecting anyone until he heard his name being yelled. My sister and her family are the best. He is home, tired, hungry and looking forward to some R&R at my sister's place first then we will soon see him when he has rested and gone through their week of debrief. Thanks for praying for him. He still needs the prayer for the post stuff that all military persons go through. Again, thanks,

My Endorsement

I've been a part of these gatherings the past few years. I wanted to post this information so we are all on the same page. This coincides with other meetings...we've been worshiping at the River for a reason!

Preston is a (as we say in Korea) a GOOD MAN!


Columbia River Prayer Journey Itinerary V2 7-28-09


Columbia River Flush Prayer Journey – August 11-22, 2009


Columbia River Prayer Journey

River Flush Columbia
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. 5 God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. 6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.  7 The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.    Ps 46:4-7
A. What are we doing?
1.      Praying and interceding in concert along the major river systems in the Pacific Northwest. This initiative is similar in focus but different in approach to the River Flush conducted on the Mississippi River and its tributaries conducted in April-May 2007.
2.      There will be teams on the Columbia, Snake, Willamette, Kootenai, Pend Oreille, Cowlitz, Spokane, Deschutes, Lewis, Yakima, Wenatchee, Okanogan, Kettle, and Sandy Rivers as well as several tributaries to cover the greater Columbia watershed.
3.      We will be traveling on the journey as each team is led by Holy Spirit from June 15, 2009 to Sept. 5, 2009.  All teams will assemble in Spokane, WA, on Sept. 7-9, 2009.
4.      Intercessors from around the country but especially along the river passages will be “Lighting the Passage” with worship during the period of the journey.
B.    Why are we doing this?
1.      The most important reason for the journey is simply obedience to the Lord.  During our preparation for a preceding prayer journey in Spokane in addition to other previous prayer journeys, he showed the importance of a corresponding journey down the length of the Columbia River and its watershed.
2.      We understand that each river we are journeying has already been prayed for, perhaps numerous times.  Our journey’s prayers and intercession will build on what has been done before, and we expect subsequent prayers over the same rivers to continue to build. There is no limit to God’s blessings.
3.      One of the primary purposes of this journey is to break the stronghold of water spirits associated with bodies of water which affect the people that live in the land, bringing pride, addiction, fleshly pursuits, manipulation and control, attraction to the occult, and a fascination with death and darkness.  In essence, we are doing deliverance ministry to the Pacific Northwest and the Western Gate of the North American Continent.  We will be publishing at a later point the Biblical foundation for understanding and addressing water spirits.

4.      Third, we have seen prophetically that the Spirit of Baal, a demonic structure that has led our land into pursuit of the flesh, has in fact been drawing life from our nation.  In the same way that individuals develop heart disease through fleshly addiction, our nation is being robbed of life. Our prayer journey through the circulatory system around the Northwest of our nation is intended to cleanse the arteries and bring new life.  We are continuing the cleansing of our national and continental water systems preparing the way for the address the same Baal and Mammon and other occult spirits and spiritual strongholds of wickedness.
5.      Fourth, the Lord has shown us that every apostolic and prophetic declaration and intercession along our river pathway will be spiritual dynamite that will explode cracks in the power grid of the enemy over our land.
6.      Fifth, as our teams from around the country merge where the rivers converge, we are making a powerful apostolic declaration of unity in the Body of Christ.
7.      Sixth, we are taking spiritual possession of rivers used as demonic highways and establishing them as Highways of Holiness unto the Lord through worship, repentance and apostolic intercessory declaration.  Waters that were created to nurture the life of God’s creation will be restored to their full original purpose in the natural and spiritual spheres of Earth. 
C.    Who is doing this?
1.      We are in affiliation with Cascadia Apostolic Summit; Dan Hammer, Washington State Apostle U.S.A.R.; and many others.
2.      Our guiding apostles are Jim and Faith Chosa of Day-Chief Ministries, Yellowtail, Montana, 406-666-9183,
3.      The journey leader is Preston Jackson, Spokane, Washington, 509-290-3218,
4.      Through Jim Chosa and other Native leaders we have and will continue to gain indigenous authority as their representatives in the territories of the land encompassed by this river system.
5.      River team leaders include prayer journey leaders from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, British Columbia, CA. and teams are comprised from many different states.
6.      Each river prayer team consists of an “onsite team” traveling the river by car and one or more “base camp intercessory teams”.
7.      State intercessors are supporting the journey from every state touched by the rivers on the journey as well as intercessors from around the nation and the world.
D.    What are we doing on the journey?
1.      We will be traveling 2 by 2 as Jesus sent out the 72 to prepare the way before Him in Luke 10. (Or as many as will conveniently travel in one vehicle.)
2.      We will be praying at specific locations revealed to us by research and through revelation by the Holy Spirit.
3.      In particular, we are looking for places of iniquity due to false authority, false worship, bloodshed, broken covenants, and immorality.
4.      We will establish, at key points, “stones of remembrance” that declare “The Earth is the Lord’s and the fullness, thereof.”
5.      We will reconcile God’s true ownership of the Earth through communion at key sites as directed by Holy Spirit.
6.      We will establish, at key points, “boundary markers” that declare the principle of “You shall set bounds for the people all around saying, ‘Beware that you do not go up on the mountain or touch the border of it; whoever touches the mountain shall surely be put to death.”
7.     We will do all things as unto the Lord and whatever the Lord shows us to do.
E.    Journey culmination.
1.      We will convene in a corporate Malachi 3:16 convention on Sept. 18-19, 2009.
2.      We will repent for these defilements and receive the forgiveness of the Lord for the iniquities committed in the land.
3.      We will prophetically and apostolically apply Jeremiah’s Commission to uproot every kind of iniquity.
4.      We will break and sever the connection of evil and wicked spiritual forces to the land and water of this river system.
5.      We will sanctify the water and the land.
6.      We will apostolically declare the word of the Lord through scripture and revelatory, prophetic expression.
7.      We will, out of the blessing of God, bless the land and the people of the land influenced by this river system with a special focus on the Body of Christ.
8.     We will unite, through the Blood of Christ and Holy Spirit, our prayers to all the prayers that have been uttered before us.
9.     We will apply 2 Cor. 10:6 to the entire Columbia River Watershed area.
