Oh, I’ve found it. I have supercalifragilisticexpialidocious news. Yep. That’s it. (For the readership outside of America, the word “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” is taken from the 1964 Disney musical film Mary Poppins and means that something is great or extraordinary). Here is the news. The Holy Spirit that created the power-packed kids mentioned in the “Power-Packed Kids”, “It Happened in Lake Wales, Florida!”, “It Happened in Lake Worth, Florida!”, “It Happened in Chattanooga, Tennessee!”, and “It Happened in Humble, Texas!” posts wants to create power-packed kids in @@@@,@@@@!

The background for the testimony:
God’s power released through boys and girls:
I apologize because this is as far as I can go. While I can’t add any details with specific information, you can. Get out your notepad and start writing because I am declaring that your supercalifragilisticexpialidocious testimony is unfolding. The God who included your children in the whosoever of “Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13) is at work to include your children in the all of “I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh” (Joel 2:28-29). Your unfolding testimony will show that YOUR children in YOUR city are born-again, Jesus-loving, Bible-believing, Holy Spirit-baptized, power-packed, devil-terrorizing Kingdom builders. Your testimony will show YOUR children in YOUR city enabled and empowered by the Holy Spirit impacting families, schools, neighborhoods, cities, states, and nations. That is God’s desire. Is it yours?
Let me conclude by sharing a quote by the founder of Methodism, John Wesley. Concerning the working of the Holy Spirit, he wrote:
“It should not be reasoned that the absence of such in the church (eighteenth-century Church of England) reflects the reluctance of God to give, rather the reticence of the church to receive.” Billman, Dr. Frank H. The Supernatural Thread in Methodism: Signs and Wonders Among Methodists Then and Now (Lake Mary, FL: Creation House Press, 2013),165.
My prayer for you is that your unwavering, unrelenting desperation and longing for a move of God’s Spirit will bring about your very own supercalifragilisticexpialidocious “It Happened AND is Happening in @@@@,@@@@!” testimony. Amen? Amen!
