Congratulations on your Affirmation service.  The work has long been in

place and must be duly recognized. My prayers are that you will have a

successful encounter with the Holy Spirit, and with your ministry family.

Thank you for what you’ve poured into me. Our worship/service today was just incredible! This was a day wherein the Spirit was so high that many hearts that usually wouldn’t shed tears couldn’t hold back. Deliverance and healing was certainly in the house. I’ve never witnessed in our service what we witnessed today. The blessings of the anointing that God has placed on you really did flow. My prayers are that God will continue to bless you above and beyond forever and forever.

I thought the Affirmation service was great. Thank you for allowing me to be in the Prophetic Assembly. You are truly an anointed man. I am so excited for you and I am looking forward to seeing the great things God has for us. I pray God’s continuous blessings on you and your family. I pray for your strength, health and wealth.
