Father to the Fatherless.

So in my last post I referred to a worship leader named Jason Upton. Let me first tell you little about this worship leader.

Jason Upton was born on December 15, 1973 and was adopted on March 13, 1974. Central to his Christian testimony are his Native American roots, which has prophetic implications of healings, namely to specific issues pertaining to American history and the current state of the church. He was originally told that his birth father was a Dakota, which is one of the tribes of the Sioux nation. He has more recently come know that his birth father was Cherokee.

So Jason's heart is for the fatherless.... Anyway that is the background of the story that is told in the link below. Jason tells his story about growing, adoption, meeting his biological family, and worshiping.

(It is a bit long but you can watch as little or as much as you want.)

This man's style of worship, praying, prophetic message has truly changed my life. His ministry to the fatherless is what God has used in my life push me towards those that need a Father. To bring my Heavenly Father to those who need Him the most. Family and I are moving forward in this area of ministry. I believe that God has given me one verse for my ministry.

"He will change parents' attitudes toward their children and children's attitudes toward their parents. If not, I will come and reclaim my land by destroying you."
~Malachi 4:6
Part of me also believes that God allowed my earthy father to be taken from me because He wanted me to show those without a father who He is... He truly loves those who don't feel very "lovable"... Jesus refers to these people as "the least of these"... So please pray that God continues to show us the least of these and His will for them!!!!
