ESCONDIDO, Calif., July 14, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ -- On May 1, 2013, the Rev. Rich Guerra, who is the Superintendent of the SoCal Network of the Assemblies of God, expressed appreciation to the Rev. Dr. Verna Linzey, an internationally known crusade evangelist, for helping reach 16 million lost souls people in Southern California.
Rev. Guerra, a friend of Dr. Linzey, stated:
I want to remind you that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Thank you for ministering in the SoCal Network. Ministering to people is very rewarding work, yet it can be very challenging. I pray that God will encourage your heart, reassure you of your calling and richly provide for you. I appreciate all that you do to disciple the individuals in your ministry to help reach the 16 million in Southern California who don't know Jesus Christ. You are prayed for and appreciated more than you know, friend!
Dr. Linzey recently was the focal point of revival which broke out at Azusa Street, Bonnie Brae Street, the Los Angeles Mission, and outside the state in Houston, New Jersey, Virginia and the nation of Haiti, ministering to crowds of about 20,000 people, and where she met and prayed with the regional chief of the United Nations and the governor of the Cap-Haiten region. Adapting to technological advances, she has ministered to an audience of over 9,000 people on Facebook with a series of teachings on the baptism with the Holy Spirit.
In Haiti, something unique happened. Involved in religion as statecraft, aside from her evangelistic crusade, when meeting the United Nations chief of the northern region of Haiti, Emilio Castaneda, topics of discussion in that summit included the presence and purpose of the United Nations in Haiti, verification of mission accomplishment, exit strategies, strategies for meeting the religious needs of the United Nations troops, and the chief's personal faith in Jesus Christ. The summit concluded with Dr. Linzey praying a blessing over the Chief, as he knelt before her and received the laying on of hands.
Verna is the author of the widely acclaimed book, The Baptism with the Holy Spirit. Her second television series, "The Holy Spirit Today,"?is in the process of being edited to show around the world. She is a crusade evangelist, movie actress, recording artist, songwriter, and author.
