Nate & Joy Hoot

2 Cor 3:17-18 “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, who with unveiled faces reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”

Throughout this summer, we watched God’s Spirit bring freedom—unveiling God’s glory on hundreds of faces! Over 300 participants at Forge’s multi-generational spiritual retreat called Deep Camp experienced deeper levels of intimacy with God. Some embraced relationship with Jesus for the first-time! Several answered God’s call to engage marginalized people groups for the advance of God’s kingdom. One was baptized! A week later 17 high school students graduated from SURGE, Forge’s discipleship training program for high school students. During their 18-day training, passion, vision and courage for Kingdom advance became contagious. Watch out! This group is on mission to change the world J! On July 15th young adult students from across the country graduated from The Experience. Throughout 58-days of discipleship training God’s Spirit broke sin patterns, replaced lies with truth, and cast vision in hearts for future kingdom impact. Captives were set free! Prisoners released! These “unveiled faces” are reflecting more of God, His will and His glory across the nation—and world—today! THANK YOU for fueling God’s work through your faithful prayers and financial giving. To GOD be all glory!

Pray for rest, replenishment and renewal from God’s Spirit as Joy and I engage follow-up coaching/discipleship relationships. Pray for God’s wisdom and anointing as I lead Forge International initiatives into new locations. Pray for the fruits of God’s Spirit to flow from us (including our children, Kelsey, Olivia and EJ) as we seek to faithfully follow God on this journey.
