Prayer Requests

Please pray for my daughter, Christie, and her husband and children, that they would totally embrace the will of God for all their lives and to know Jesus intimately.

Please pray for my son, David, and his wife, Miha, and their churches in Romania, that they would prosper, be protected, and our time together would be very profitable in the Spirit.

Please pray for my younger daughter, Anna, and her husband and children, that they would discover the perfect will of God and His favor upon their lives.

Please pray for my wife Joan as the school year gets into full swing, that God will order her steps and help her to accomplish all that needs to be done.

Please pray for my father-in-law, Richard, as he faces cancer, that he will come to know the peace and presence of God.

Please pray for God's specific leading to be revealed to me for 2016. Many doors have opened and I want to follow His voice very intimately and accurately in this.

Please pray for a spiritual son, a church-planting apostle in the Middle East, that the Lord would completely heal him of a blood clot.

October & November 2015

Dear Friends in Christ,

Greetings in the name of the Lord! Summer has gone by quickly! I have done overseas travels and ministered throughout the United States. This Sunday I leave on a six-week trip to Romania and Russia. Prayer from trusted prayer warriors and intercessors like you is not a good idea, but is an absolute necessity for our success in the will of God and His divine protection.

Again, I want to stress how important prayer is to us. Just this past weekend I entered into very demanding and aggressive intercession, a realm I don't usually enter. In such battles, we come to recognize how much we need one another's prayers. Paul stated in Ephesians 6:12 that WE wrestle against principalities and powers and not flesh and blood. It takes a corporate effort to get the job done in prayer for His kingdom. So I request in advance and appreciate so much your warring and winning with us in the secret place.

If we can serve you in any way don't hesitate to get in touch with us. Our heart is to serve His body and see the nations transformed for King Jesus!

Over and out with a shout!

Yours in the faith,
Bill Norton, G.H.S.


 

August & September 2015

Dear Friends in Christ,

Greetings in the Name of the Lord! I have been home resting for two weeks after being overseas in Russian, the Middle East, and Romania for more than 6 weeks. The Lord did marvelous things: saving, healing, delivering, and releasing the spirit of prayer and deep prophetic ministry. Only through your intercessions and God's grace could this trip have been done. I ministered 50 times in 6 1/2 weeks and did 7 conferences! God gave supernatural grace.

The Middle East has become a new passion for me and God is opening doors for me to really invest spiritually in that part of the world. Five nationalities were at the conference there and, regardless of the horrible things the enemy is doing in that part of the world, God is pouring out His Spirit there and it is harvest time! Multitudes are turning to the Lord out of false religion.

I thank God for the wise way our ministry was organized on this past trip. In spite of the intense schedule, my Russian spiritual son and apostolic leader worked much rest into the trip. I ended my journeys in Romania and I did a conference for my son and daughter-in-law and then ministered with them in a city three hours from theirs.

Now I am going to the East Coast and Midwest for three weeks of ministry. Please continue your faithful prayers and intercessions for us. 

These are definitely challenging times in which to live, but God's grace is available in abundance. We need to keep up our prayers and war a good warfare like never before. God's kingdom will never be stopped by sinful man or the working of the evil one. As the church unites and makes a righteous stand, the outpourings of the Spirit will happen in all nations! 

Please pray for us, that the Lord would protect, guide, strengthen, and release His power and revelation in abundance. If we can serve you in any way please don't hesitate to contact us.

June & July 2015

Dear Friends in Christ,

Greetings in the Name of the Lord! I have just returned home from a month in the north east of the United States (five churches) and one stop in the south--Missouri. The Lord was very gracious to release his powerful anointing and strong prophetic revelation. I had fellowship with many friends, some I have known for 40 years. It is wonderful to be connected in the Kingdom!

This Friday I leave for a month to minister in Russia and then I will be in the Middle East and Romania. I will be gone for six weeks and really need the on-going prayer and intercession of those who are committed to what God has called us to do. I am very excited about our involvement in the Middle East because it may well be a completely new direction for our ministry. But as Paul said, "A great door for effective work has opened unto me and there are many adversaries." (I Cor. 16:9) War with us in the Spirit!

I want to thank you for standing with me on previous trips. I definitely know the great success God has given us in many nations and in many parts of North America is due to His grace and the intercessions of people like you. The Apostle Paul was bold enough to ask for prayer and I follow his example. I believe in the statement "No prayer, no power. Some prayer, some power. Much prayer, much power."  When I have a great army of intercessors in the secret place praying for me in the Spirit, great miracles happen and nations are impacted by the Lord Jesus. We are in a crucial hour of history in which anointed intercession and Spirit-lead strategy and God-appointed leaders will crush the enemy and advance the Kingdom as never before.

If we can serve you in any way please don't hesitate getting in touch with us. We believe all ministry is built on relationship and prayer. As our Lord said, "Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13)

April & May 2015

Dear Friends in Christ,

Greetings in the Name of the Lord! I have been at my home in Yuba City, California, resting after my trip to Asia. Trust me, your prayers aided us to see supernatural breakthrough on our Asian trip! I can't thank you enough. The Lord was very faithful to move in His wisdom and power in a restricted Himalayan nation, in Cambodia, and in the north and south Vietnam.

In the Himalayas, God came with tremendous power breaking through in our leadership conference there. The great darkness scattered in Jesus Name! At "the roof of the world," God's great, manifest presence revealed the heart and power of the Lord Jesus Christ. My son was teamed up with me there; he had flown in from another Himalayan region-Nepal-to join us. We have years of relationship there and really stand with the apostle of the fellowship. When we first started going he only had two churches--now eight years later, there are twenty-two!

In Cambodia, where I have been going for fourteen years, the Lord is really moving in a full-blown revival. The fellowship we work with, Four-Square Children of Promise, has grown to a million believers in over 6,000 churches in 16 years. This year my son and I and the missionary/apostle Teddy and his wife Prophetess Sou were the team. Top pastors of the fellowship came and the Lord gave very strong teachings and appeared with His manifest presence, displaying His great power. The Lord gave me a prophetic dream warning and directing the national church into a serious season of prayer. The Lord warned that the enemy wanted to destroy the womb of the work. This has turned out to have been, again, a renewed attack through ungodly people directed by the U. N. Oh, how the heathen and the enemy hate the revival that has come to Cambodia because of the ministry to orphans! Over 18,000 orphans have been redeemed and are serving the Lord through this church movement:  now they are doctors, lawyers, pastors, mechanics, teachers, actors, etc. 
 
In Vietnam, where I have been going for twelve years, we ministered to leaders and churches, both in the north and in the south. The Hanoi fellowship is really in a time of explosive anointing and is getting ready to expand. Only nine years ago we had nothing there, but the Lord gave me a prophetic word to direct the apostle of Agape Churches to go north and plant churches in the Hanoi area. A young woman whose husband was one of the body guards to the Prime Minister was at the point of suicide. Her husband had left her for another woman. But she came to the apostolic leaders' meetings and got saved. I remember well her coming to my underground church training and going out in the Spirit all day for two days in a row. Two years later she became the pastor of the new work and it is a thriving church today. In the Saigon area in the south, we had a leadership conference with numbers of pastors, many of them coming from afar. Apostle Vinh, my son, and I were the team who did the training. God broke through powerfully, giving strong revelation and mighty impartation. Vietnam, with close to 100 million people, has a tremendous future in God.


I want to thank you who have stood with us in faithful prayer and true Christian fellowship. We have lived to be a part of seeing thousands of new churches birthed, thousands of leaders trained and great signs and wonders done in His Name. The battles with the powers of darkness have been very fierce and intense at times, but grace and victory always prevail as you stand with us in the secret place!!! 

If we can pray or serve you in any way please get in touch. All that we do in North America and overseas is based on in-depth relationships that strengthen and serve one another in Christ.

February & March 2015

Dear Friends in Christ,

Greetings in the Name of the Lord!. In January I was in the New York City area, Vermont, Kentucky, and Arkansas. In the beginning of February I  ministered in central Oregon for the first time. The Lord's manifest presence was very intense; the prophetic ministry went very deep and His healing power was released. I have been preparing, since returning home from Oregon, for my upcoming trip to the Himalayas and Southeast Asia. The Lord has been very good to release His abundant provision and open new doors.


In closing, it is a pleasure to serve the Lord in the nations and to be a vessel to bring His power, revelation, and grace to many. But I know none of this could be done without people like you who faithfully pray, give, and intercede for us. You share in our rewards as you enter into our battles and help us win through prayer in Jesus name.

If we can serve you in any way, please don't hesitate to contact us. As we are heading into the Himalayas and Southeast Asia, where we have been a part of seeing thousands of new churches started and great miracles done, I want to thank you in advance for you standing with us in the intercessions which we so need.

January 2015

Dear Friends in Christ,

Greetings in the Name of the Lord! To think a new year is upon us, 2015! Last year we worked extensively in nine countries, in three of them, several times. I spent nearly four months overseas last year. My last trip was to Russian, Israel, Romania, and Holland. I ministered (hours of prophetic ministry) over thirty times in six-weeks' time, plus all the travel. Because of this, I planned most of December as a month of rest, exercise, and getting refreshed.

I am soon to leave my home in California for a three-week ministry trip on the East Coast of the United States and in the South. I want you to pray and believe with me for the Lord to strengthen me and powerfully move by His Spirit. Also, please pray that there will be no bad weather  hindering my travels or ministry days.

Again, I want to thank you for your on-going intercession and prayers. Going where we do overseas we need His mighty manifest presence, His divine protection, and abundant provision. Prayer and the long-term relationships we have had with God's leaders and people have opened incredible doors and allowed us to be laborers with him, seeing leaders trained, great signs and wonders, and thousands of new churches birthed.

I want to believe in 2015 for enlargement and increase like never before. If we can serve you in any way please don't hesitate to get in touch with us via e-mail.

As we stand together in united prayer, the Name of Jesus through us will accomplish unusual things for the Kingdom of God!

October & November 2014

Dear Friends in Christ,

     Greetings in the Name of the Lord! Summer really went by quickly and soon I will be overseas for six weeks in Russia, Israel, Romania, and Holland. Our travels in September were very blessed of the Lord, with God releasing strong manifestations of His presence and gracing us with on-going, in-depth prophetic revelation for many. I traveled in four states, including four cities in New York State alone. We have long relationships with many places and it is encouraging to see the work of God grow and the Kingdom of God advanced. Please agree with me that on my coming trip the Lord would, as in the days of Elisha, blind the enemy's army but anoint us to see. (II Kings 6)

     With the demanding schedule before us your prayers and intercessions are drastically needed so that I will have the spiritual protection, stamina, and full liberty in the Spirit to proclaim the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.

     I want to thank you who have been burdened and lead of the Lord to pray and intercede for us. With our heavy schedule in both national and international travels we drastically need the prayers of people who are anointed of the Holy Spirit to support us in prayer and uphold our hand in intercession. God has given us great breakthroughs and results, which we can only attribute to His faithfulness, grans and your loving support and prayers. As the battle intensifies and the needs are so great and we are at the limit of our strength and knowledge, that is when God takes over and your prayers are the deciding factor!!!!!!!! Jesus is the Victor!!!!!!!!

     If we can serve you in any way or stand with you in prayer, don't hesitate to get in touch with us. Together we stand in the secret place!

August 2014

Dear Friends in Christ,

    Greetings in the Name of the Lord! I have been at home resting from my recent trip to Romania and Holland. This Friday I begin a month-long ministry trip here in America to four states. 

    When I was in Romania, I took part in a prophetic school that my son and daughter-in-law held for their churches there. It was unique and has gone on for a month, non-stop, with various teachers. The Spirit of the Lord manifested Himself powerfully in revelatory teaching and deep operations of the Gifts of the Spirit. On one night, prayer and the manifest presence became so strong that no one wanted to go home. I also took part in a conference with Phil Rich, another prophetic ministry who comes from Oklahoma. This school has tremendous potential and I believe will be used internationally to produce powerful prophetic ministry. 

    After Romania, I flew to Holland and had a short but powerful time there. I haven't been in Holland for more than fifteen years but the Lord had spoken prophetically years ago that he would reopen the doors and truly did. A leader could not get out of his heart a message I had spoken, and God prompted him to find me! He did this through connecting with my son and daughter-in-law in Romania and getting my e-mail address from them. This was very meaningful to my heart as 43 years ago the Lord saved me in Holland. While in Holland many new doors opened as I ministered in three different churches in the Rotterdam/Amsterdam area. God's anointing broke many yokes and many received prophetic ministry. God willing, I will be back in both countries in either late October or early November.

    I want to thank you for your faithful intercession and the relationship we have with you. Many things are accelerating in my life and ministry and I know this is because of the faithfulness of the Lord and the prayers of God's people. When I was recently in Holland, in the midst of all the darkness I sensed great, great destiny in that land. As we walk together in the Spirit, God's mighty destiny for our lives and ministry will come forth as His kingdom is revealed in and through us. 

    We are in very challenging times worldwide and the needs of people are almost supernatural, but great grace comes when the enemy tries to stop God's plan. These are not days to retreat but, like David, run and take out the giants!!! The Holy Spirit will anoint us to move in the power of God to destroy Satan's kingdom and see multitudes come to Christ and God's church become glorious.

    If there is anything we can do to serve or help you in any way please be in touch. Do check out my Facebook page, "Prophetic Foundations." It is done in both Russian and English.

Dear Friends in Christ,

    Greetings in the Name of the Lord! I have just returned from a month in Russia and Romania. The Lord blessed beyond words by displaying His grace and power. 

    When I first arrived in Samara, Russia, at 3:30 a.m. it looked like disaster in the making. I was made to step out of line and a steel door literally descended and blocked me to isolate me and keep me contained with an official standing next to me. But God had preplanned my "redemption": a Russian girl from Canada had spoken to me out of the blue on the bus which drove us to the terminal and God used her to translate on my behalf. The custom official ended up stamping my passport and apologizing for my delay. That never happens in Russia!!! I then was driven through what remained of the night to one of my beloved cities in Russia, Syzran. We had three wonderful days off, resting and in fellowship with the leaders and then had a powerful, four-day conference, where people were saved, the prophetic flowed, and one night the Spirit of Intercession carried us to a supernatural dimension. The pastor in Syzran has an apostolic ministry and he and his wife are over a fellowship of more than twenty churches. They are my friends and son and daughter in the Gospel. From Syzran we went to Togliatti and did two of the services in a three-day conference. Prophetic ministry went to a good depth and souls came to Christ. There was a great coming of prayer and the manifest presence. Leaders were there from Siberia and it was wonderful to make new friends in Christ. From Togliatti our team flew to Moscow and then through the night east into Siberia. We arrived in Kemerova and were honored to meet a man who was a former boxing champion and gang leader in Russia who mightily serves the Lord. He is one of the few people I know in the world who is fearless in advancing the Kingdom of God in all levels of society. His church is full of young people who started to prophecy and minister alongside us with great anointing. The manifest presence was supernaturally released, resulting in intense intercession. From Kemerova we drove (!!!!!!) to our next city, Krasnoyarsk. The angels worked overtime, protecting us as we traveled at incredible speeds, dodged trucks, and had numerous close calls on our journey. Siberia's driving is much more intense and reckless than central Russia's, and that is saying something!!! In Krasnoyarsk, we had a four-service, three-day conference. God gave strong breakthrough preaching and, according to the leaders, detailed prophetic accuracy. The leaders are definitely apostolic and have birthed many works (the same is true of all the cities in which I ministered in Russia.) Many came to Christ at this conference and a deep relationship began between us and the leaders. God has given me a supernatural love for the Russian nation, its people, and, above all, its churches. My thrust is to work with Russian apostles to help raise up New Testament churches and Russian prophets and prophetic ministry. I greatly appreciate their integrity, hunger, generosity, and vision.

    I flew from Siberia back to Moscow then through Germany to Cluj, Romania, where my son pastors. I had a wonderful time of fellowship with my son and daughter-in-law and their friends and leaders. We had two days of services with them and a leadership meeting.Their churches are more healthy than ever before and tremendous growth is at hand. From Cluj I went to Baia Mare to a new church there for the first time. It is a work that has tremendous potential and also is growing. The pastor there is an innovative business man. In two of the services with them our prophetic ministry entered into a very high level and much impartation was released and souls came to Christ. 

    In Russia we preached the Word to thousands of people, prophesied over hundreds, and saw many set free and dozens come to Christ. For ten nights in a row I slept very little but was engulfed in intercession. I ministered in four cities and traveled more than 8,000 miles. The Lord was faithful to answer my prayers and your mighty prayers of intercession. In Romania, the Lord breathed life into His church, strengthened relationships, and moved by His Holy Spirit through the preaching of the word and prophetic ministry. A new generation is arising in that challenging land to build His Kingdom. 

    I am progressively coming to believe that without aggressive, believing prayer and intercession little will be done of lasting impact for the Kingdom of God. Like Moses, I know my hands are being upheld by my faithful covenant friends and intercessors. When the enemy has attacked my body, mind, relationships, finances, or household, corporate prayer has caused him to halt and for God's Kingdom to be demonstrated to us in a supernatural way. It is a tragedy that many of God's leaders and people put on a false front and don't humble themselves and ask for prayer from the right people. I have seen too many good men and women become casualties because of a lack of sufficient prayer covering, Godly counsel, and accountability. I thank God for His grace and faithfulness to provide us with all the above. 

    Please keep praying for our on-going international ministry, our family, and for His Kingdom to advance in and through us supernaturally. If we can serve you in any way or pray for you please don't hesitate to connect with us.
