Kalispell, Montana - August 2004

~ Convocation of Eagles ~

8.12.04 ~ Leaving three days later than planned due to three different families in crisis, the journey began at 9:45 AM. A white cross in the sky above my apartment is GOD's first promise and then a fighter jet crosses over me as I head east on I-84. Thank you FATHER for air support! Two months earlier this year, Shawn and I took a similar journey, this time it is just JESUS and I. It is my first time since the car wrecks in 1994 to drive this distance alone. Certain of the LORD directing my path and walking in faith, the 575 miles slip by quickly and I arrive in Kalispell at 7:05 Pacific Time or 8:05 Mountain Time. 

Signs along the way: Crown Point, 80888 at milepost 8, England, Banner Furnace Fuel-A Total Oil Company, Crown Line, Mount Joy Road, Mission Impossible and Dragon Fly. 

It is also my first time to attend the Convocation of Eagles (A Cherokee Style Worship Gathering).

Bob and Dixie Cole hosted a dinner gathering the first evening where I meet Cherokee and Pat Jones and reconnected with Laura Larsen and Russ and Ginny Sands. Ahhhh, the blessings of fellowship. The LORD directed me to bring ten flags to give away, which I did immediately at this gathering. The Glory Ring for Russ and Ginny Sands was delivered tonight. (Click here to see photo) PTL! Releasing HIS BANNER OF LOVE!

8.13.04 ~ In the morning, I drove out to Columbia Falls for the first day of the Convocation of Eagles and was completely surprised to find myself being directed by a woman on a horse to park in the field. As I parked by the pick up with Oregon License Plate 777, I thought, oh, I need to meet whoever drives this truck. The field was full of grasshoppers which irritated my spirit as they symbolize one of the plagues in Egypt, so I prayed Joel 2:23-27 over the land, the gathering and everyone coming as only GOD brings justice and recompense to what the enemy has devoured, stolen or destroyed. Then the Glory Van arrived and I knew it was time to begin!

Jeni Running Brook Coville wore a Traditional Cherokee Dress (Regalia) of calico. The Cherokee women used calico because it tears easily for hand sewing. The Dress is also know as the Tear Dress. Amazing miracle of GOD - HE brought three Jennifer Lynn's together. We are in the photo above. Only GOD could arrange that - from Oregon, Washington and Montana! Glory!

The first day, positioned as an observer, I learned many things such as the Cherokee have a Friendship Circle, not a Sacred Circle, as do other Native Americans. The Cherokees always have a fire and a Fire Keeper. A few years ago, I was privileged to drive across the Trail of Tears and visit the Cherokee Reservation and see the Eternal Flame, so the fire and Fire Keeper seemed rather logical. Toonacheeke (Slow Turtle) of the Chabunagungamaug Nipmuck Tribe (Cliff Chelsey) shared about his role as Fire Keeper which he has been doing for over 20 years.  That it was over 95 degrees and we were dancing around a fire did not seem logical at all. Smiles. 

The Convocation began with a Grand Entry followed by a Flag Song and Ceremony. The Flag Ceremony reminded me of the years my sons (both Eagle scouts) were in Scouting. 

After the Fire Keeper shared, I noticed this man from the Tribe of Judah Christian Motorcycle Association with Fire Boots! His name...Shadrack, Meshack or Abednego?...I am almost sure?. Smiles. I just loved his boots.

During the first Worship Time, the staff of the copper and red fire flag that I was worshipping with broke and I knew that GOD was breaking through with HIS CONSUMING FIRE! Glory!

In the evening we gathered at New Covenant Fellowship in Kalispell. The last week of July the LORD directed me to make a Glory Ring for Charlie and Tiana Caldwell of McKinleyville, California. Charlie is of Native American heritage and Tiana is of Jewish heritage...the marriage of two cultures. The Prophetic Name of the Glory Ring: THE GATHERING OF HIS NATIONS! The prophetic word from the Glory Ring given to Charlie and Tiana two weeks ago was being released before my eyes. Loren (of Jewish heritage) and Cherokee (of Native American heritage) are brothers in the LORD (see photo below).

Each worship dancer was like a vision of Glory to me, a ring of HIS Glory in motion, form, function, rhythm, harmony, song, color, type, symbol, unity and delight!

8.14.04 ~ Following the morning session, we gathered at the Montana Coffee Company for lunch where I met the people from Oregon License Plate 777... LeRoy and Audrey Hayes from Eugene, Oregon (the city of my birth) who brought the tent that provided the blessed shade. Only GOD!

Jeni asked me to share this afternoon a little about HIS Glory Ring Ministries. The atmosphere reminded me of Tarapoto, Peru at the base of the Andes Mountains: intense heat, dirt floors, a tent for shade and GOD's faithful ones. It was an honor to be a part of so many wonderful ministries making a difference for JESUS! Our ministry began making Glory Rings for Native American Tribes, Nations and Bands in 2000 and GOD has been faithful to bring increase for HIS GLORY! In September 2003, I delivered the Flathead/Kootenai/Salish Tribe Native American Glory Ring to Jeni.

This evening we gathered at Christian Life Fellowship in Whitefish. Before the weekend was over I gave away eight more flags and delivered three Glory Rings. Smiles. It was a joy to share with others worship instruments for them to take home to their cities across America! When the warriors first brought out their "Glory Hoops" I thought to myself, PAPA GOD they dance just like me!

One of the warriors offered me his drum. Being raised in a family of musicians, I knew when someone offers you their instrument it is an honor. In futile attempt, I explained to him that I couldn't keep a beat, he insisted that I try anyhow. So, I began watching the woman in front of me hitting her drum and tried to follow along. The warrior just laughed and smiled, "You don't see the sound, you hear the sound. Listen!" That was very profound. I never did get the rhythm but a valuable lesson was reiterated: Some things are for hearing and some things are for seeing, it is important to know the difference.

My favorite law of physics is called the Butterfly Effect by James Gleich, "The notion that a butterfly stirring the air today in Peking can transform storm systems next month in New York." By the same measure, my belief is that worship in Kalispell Montana can transform storm systems next month in Florida.... slowing down and delaying the storm! Worship of the One True GOD changes the earth's atmosphere as HE comes and inhabits HIS people with HIS presence which is transforming.

During worship on Saturday evening, the deep, rich purple scarf from Arizona came off my Glory Ring, "THE HEART OF HIS ARROW" so I gave the scarf to Jeni as the Holy Spirit directed. When something comes off a Glory Ring the parable is that GOD is releasing something. In this evening, HE is releasing HIS majesty, passion, royalty, dignity and honor to Jeni and First Nations Monday.

Also during worship, I met a young warrior, Ryan Perkins (age 12). In 2000 someone gave me a bear claw and I had been waiting on the LORD as to whom it belonged to...and it was pure delight to send it to him when I arrived home.

Regarding the photo of the Warrior in black, blue and yellow colors.... when I first saw him the Scripture in Jeremiah came immediately to mind.

"Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, And the young men and the old, together; For I will turn their mourning to joy, will comfort them, and make them rejoice rather than sorrow. I will satiate the soul of the priests with abundance and MY people shall be satisfied with MY goodness, says the LORD. (Jeremiah 31:13) 

When I asked about the colors of his regalia he said that the black was because his people danced all night until they had the breakthrough of the morning (yellow sun and blue sky).

8.15.04 ~ During the Grand Entry and the Veteran's Ceremony I walked with the staff and the rod made by Stephen Watkins on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona. It was my way of bringing the anointing of Arizona to the gathering. In the evening Jeni presented seemingly everyone with gifts. My gift was a bracelet with this prophetic meaning. 16 white beads = The FATHER's LOVE, HIS HOLINESS, PURITY, AND RIGHTEOUSNESS (Psalm 16). 44 turquoise beads = The FATHER's LOVE FOR THE BRIDE OF CHRIST and Ezekiel 44:4. 10 purple iridescent beads =  THE MAJESTY, ROYALTY, GLORY and PASSION of JESUS CHRIST ten-fold. (John 10:10). Glory to GOD! Thank you!

8.16.04 ~ In the afternoon, I was privileged to meet with Leslie Allen and Carolee Blair for a few minutes as they open the boxes containing the Glory Rings that I brought for them. All for HIS GLORY! Later, we gathered at Bob and Dixie's for the farewell dinner. Russ was at work during the Veterans Ceremony at the COE, so Cherokee Jones presented a Warrior of Valor medal to his wife, Pat Jones and to Russ Sands.

Two years ago when I began writing the web site the Holy Spirit gave me the following Scripture for the Jubilee Prayer for America - Montana page. HIS word is coming forth!

"For I know their works and their thoughts. It shall come that I will gather all nations and tongues and they shall come, and see MY Glory." (Isaiah 66:18)

8.17.04 ~ Home safe. Thank you for your prayers and financial support. Only by HIS grace are these ministry outreaches possible.

A bondservant of the MOST HIGH GOD!
