Isaiah 61 Tshirts For Sale!

UPDATED 2/5/15 & 2/24: 
We are taking orders until Sunday, March 1 and we do need payment by then, either here through PayPal on our donate button, or in person by cash or check. We will place the order Monday and should receive them mid March. 

We are SOO excited to offer these specially designed Tshirts to help support our move to Republic of Georgia! As we prayed we had some ideas and got Isaiah 61:11, "...the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to sprout up before all nations." We sent our ideas to www.fundthenations.com and they quickly came up with this design! They are so talented and highly recommended!






I know its a little hard to tell but you can choose to order Slate (gray) OR Navy (the 2nd picture)! You can order a Tshirt by sending $20 to us on Paypal or in person and include what size and color you need. These are nice SOFT tees so they might cling a little more than a normal tshirt so go a size up if you're unsure. Adult XS-3XL is available and Youth size M-XL is also available as a regular tshirt, not the soft kind and are the same cost. If you are outside of Charleston/need it shipped we suggest an extra $2 to help cover shipping. We are very excited to get these ordered and see you all wearing them as you join in our mission!! Thank you so much!

Go Midwife Weekend Intensive Training

In the beginning of January I was just kind of dreaming and spoke out loud my desire to have some midwifery training to be able to offer to women wherever in the world we are. Well let me assure you, spoken word is powerful! Its how God created everything after all! After that I checked out this Midwife training program I was acquainted with from Kona and found that they can even come to Charleston to do a weekend intensive. It has been neat to see how God quickly opened the doors so I'm excited to see what he does! Totally trusting Him, but I want to invite you to join me!

We need 8 students to hold a Childbirth Educator weekend intensive. We are looking at possibly February 20-22 or March 6-8 depending on people's availability. The course would cover all kinds of topics on mother and infant care and equip you to teach Childbirth classes. The vision of Go Midwife is to train people to take this knowledge and impart it to the nations to change communities and improve the health of mothers and infants. Check out their site and the course description here http://gomidwife.com/certification/ Please share this if you know anyone who might be interested. And if you are interested or have any questions please let me know! You can email me at alicia.adams511@gmail.com

Thank you!

The Lord's Goodness

We are so blessed by our amazingly talented friend Jordan Tate. She has designed a print for sale on her Etsy with all proceeds going towards our move to the Republic of Georgia for missions! She also sells other customized stationary and she is a photographer so be sure to check out her work! Her blog is www.tatesatsea.blogspot.com and you can view and purchase the print HERE. Thanks for taking the time to check it out!



Now is the time to prepare for our big move. Please pray with us for the Lord's direction and open doors with ideas for raising support and for ministry there. In the mean time we are just hungry for more of God as we see more and more of Him in our lives. We had a great time in Greenville last weekend building relationship with a church plant there who is so raw and organic, full of broken people, yet so free and full of the Spirit! Evan is doing some encouraging and training with their young worship team and will continue to go and work with them before we leave. I just love being with people and encouraging them with God's love and kindness through me. Its amazing how he shows Himself through us ordinary people when we say yes. And we say yes Jesus, whatever you have for us, we want it all!

Lessons & Faithfulness in 2014


Wow its been a long time since we updated here! But the blog is making a come back in 2015! I want to start it off with a little recap of 2014 and share our hearts for whats ahead.
We are full of thankfulness for the past year in Mt. Pleasant. God blessed us with wonderful housing where we have been for over a year now! This is the longest we have been settled in our marriage, and the longest I've gone without moving in 10 years! We are so grateful for Tim & Jennifer and their family in opening their home to us. It has been a bigger blessing than we could have imagined! Its a beautiful, quiet neighborhood where we welcomed our sweet Judah at the end of April. He was a gift to us as we returned from Israel. And by God's grace my desire was fulfilled to birth him all naturally in the water. Judah is so cute and sweet; always smiling, laughing, and on the move! He has a strong personality and carries the joy of the Lord! We are so thankful for his life. Evan and I are so thankful for the Lord's faithfulness and continued provision.
The beginning of 2014 we were motivated to step forward and dream with God again. We pursued several ideas in prayer, but Tbilisi, Georgia is the one that continued coming up since before Judah was born. Evan has enjoyed his work in a wood shop and lots of time leading worship and growing in that gift. 2014 was a year of seeing an increase in God bringing physical healing to MANY people through Evan's ministry. It has been such a delight to see God grow that area of faith and reveal His kindness and love through healing. He is just really good and really loves people and that is why He desires wholeness and life. Its why Jesus came! Wow its good and so exciting!
In December Evan and three other guys went on a faith journey for 7 days. They walked by faith, meaning they had no plans, not even knowing where they were going or where they would stay at times. Just listening to God lead them and showing God's love to as many as they could. There are countless incredible testimonies from that week of salvation, healing, and God encountering people with His perfect love! They came back fired up and continue to walk out God's command to shine His love and to bring healing to the sick. God is on the move! The stories kept me encouraged as Judah and I spent that week in Indiana with my mom as she recovered from surgery. It was a great time with family! I also started a business from home that can continue wherever we go! Its all about inspiring healthy living and I would love to share more with you!
We spent Christmas with Evan's parents and rushed back to Charleston the next day so I could stand with our dear friends Chris & Jordan Tate as she labored with their daughter Elsie. Elsie had been given a fatal diagnosis as her sister Ellie had last year, but we had stood in faith asking for life and healing. It was such a blessing and honor to be a part of their special day as we witnessed sweet Elsie's moments of life before going to live with Jesus in eternity. There are no words to express the grief and sorrow of the situation, but we are thankful for the hope and comfort we have in Jesus. You can read more about their story here. Jordan is full of wisdom and their faith is sure to be a blessing and inspiration. You can even be a part of their story by contributing to their adoption fund linked on their blog!
Now we look forward to this new year of TRUST. The doors seem to be wide open for ministry in the Republic of Georgia. Our hearts are really to encourage and equip believers around the world, and start fires wherever we go. Evan's annointed worship carries healing for the nations. We hope to impart what we have been given with believers locally and around the region through teachings, seminars, discipleship, etc. We are preparing to go in April and are in the process of planning and raising support. You may think we are crazy again and wonder why we are going back to Georgia. Well, God began putting it on our hearts clearly last April. It is not just our wild idea, but a vision and desire He placed in us. We tried to pursue several other directions/ministry areas in the States but never getting far or having much peace. As we finally decided to obey and take a step toward Georgia we were full of peace and believe God said April 2015. Now that time is quickly approaching and we walk by faith trusting in the one who has called us to fulfill it.
We invite you to join us in the vision God has given us for His kingdom to come on earth as it is in heaven! You, me, us, we are the body of Christ. Will you consider joining us in taking His love, salvation, freedom, and healing to every nation? Please let us know if you would like to be a part of our prayer team, or if you would like to partner financially, or if you want to visit us there we would really love that too! We need the Body. We need your prayers, encouragement, and relationship. We are ever grateful and value you highly in our lives. Stay connected by subscribing to our blog and subscribing to our newsletter under connect!
We hope to see each of you soon and we wish you and your family a very blessed and exciting 2015! Love, The Adams Family

Hawaii Pictures


We only have 3 weeks of DTS left in Hawaii! There is SO much to do/see on the Big Island and we have done just a little exploring. We have visited the North Shore in Oahu, beaches on the Big Island, celebrated my birthday & Evan's and our 2 year anniversary with different hikes and snorkeling, watched many beautiful sunsets, hiked the fresh lava rock to see where the lava is hitting the ocean and growing this island, and climbing rocks at our favorite local beach Queen's Bath. Here are a few photos.

Half Way


Aloha! So much has been happening here in Kona, Hawaii! We are going into week 6 of the Discipleship Training School we are staffing, half way through lecture phase. We have been blessed with amazing speakers and leaders coming through here. The atmosphere here is passionate, loving, and crying out for revival in the nations and especially America! And it is coming, be encouraged! As staff we get to soak in all the teaching along with the students but we stay super busy (12+ hour days) with many meetings, planning for our summer outreach in Middle East, taking care of everyday life details, and we get to spend 10+ hours in worship & prayer every week. Its really all about Jesus and we're learning how to keep our eyes focused on Him through it all. I'll try to give you a little update on several things. Sorry its long due to my lack of updates. Honestly its been difficult to handle our schedule and find time.

OUTREACH: We are planning to go to the Middle East at the end of June with a group of 12 for 10 weeks. I can't give many details here, but we are super excited and it is going to be an amazing time of spreading love, joy, and hope! Logistical details are coming together slowly but surely. If you'd like to hear more please email us! Our school is also currently serving every week at a public beach park in the local community, showing love in simple ways.

TEACHING: WOW. We have learned a lot and our hearts and minds have been opened in new ways. Week 1 we had staff testimonies and saw God move in love and grace among the students. Week 2 was Pure Heart Inner Healing with Tom & Donna Cole. It was so powerful. There was confession, forgiveness, healing, and freedom. Jesus ministered to students broken hearts and brought healing. We saw men and women sobbing as they were embraced and encountered God's amazing love. Week 3 we had Trent from Boston teaching us about the historical man Jesus. It brought Scripture to life as we learned more about the culture of the time and imagined Jesus' emotions and actions in different stories and from His childhood. He is fully man and truly experienced everything we do and can understand us! So good! Week 4 our school leader Dan Baumann taught about simple love of Jesus and intimacy with Him. He lived in Afghanistan for 10 years and spent time in prison in Iran. His is a testimony of simply walking with Jesus in all areas of life and letting Him love us in new ways. Last week we had Christian Gonzalez join us. He is a Yale/Harvard student who has combined his strong faith with his studies and knowledge of many ways of thinking. It was so encouraging and we learned so many new things, especially about loving God with our minds!

TESTIMONY: Personally God has been speaking to us and drawing us closer to Him during this time. We have been super filled up and encouraged. We have seen many physical healings on campus, not to mention all the inner healing. Last Monday night I and some others prayed for a woman who had a lot of pain in her ankle. It kept her from worshiping in fulness and being active. After we prayed all her pain was gone! One of our students was healed from years of chronic back pain, another woman had chronic stomach pain/problem and was healed, and MANY others! Teams that are out on outreach now from here are sending in stories of supernatural signs, healing, and breakthrough all over the world. One team in DC met President Obama and saw a huge breakthrough among students at the University for the blind. In Amsterdam after much time in worship and intercession a whole row on the Red Light District was shut down!!! God's Kingdom is coming in the nations! Praise Him. Leaders in every sphere of society are coming from all over the world to collaborate here. Recently research scientists and professors gathered to discuss seeking God's answers for the worlds problems through science! Fascinating stuff.

US: We have been loving our time here and feel so honored to have this opportunity. It is a beautiful picture of God's creation and faithfulness. Thank you to everyone who encourages us with your love! We really love hearing from you so please email us and you can check out our pictures of Facebook. We have both struggled with sickness the past 4 weeks. We got sick and then 2 weeks later it came back. The doctor told us this week we both have bronchitis. There is no medicine so we need a lot of rest, which is difficult. Please pray that our symptoms would be gone!

Needs: Your prayers are so valuable! We need more prayer and financial partners. We are confident in God's call on our lives for us to be serving Him full time with YWAM. That means we don't have any income. Expenses are higher living in the US and we need extra funds for outreach travel and a large medical bill. Please pray about these things. If you would like to partner with us in some way click on the 'Partner' tab and contact us! Thank you so much! God uses individuals like you to enable us to reach many people with His love. Much love ohana (family)
