the festival of Life

by Anne Timmerman FROM THE MINUTE YOU STEP INSIDE the venue at a Joyce Meyer Ministries event, you know you are not attending any normal ministry conference.

Excitement fills the air as tangibly as an electric shock in anticipation of what is to come. Pre-session activities allow everyone a chance to relax and unwind during resource giveaways and announcements before worship begins—the start of a truly life-changing experience. It’s clear that these events are turning points in people's lives.

Testimonies continually pour in from all over the country—and the world—about how lives are changed and people are set free to enjoy everyday life through these conferences! When thousands gather to worship Him, God doesn’t hide. He shows up in the worship music, He ministers through the messages, and He’ll work a miracle in you if you let Him.

Heart-changing miracles often happen at Joyce Meyer Ministries conferences, which draw thousands of people who come to be filled up, refreshed and set free. Not many leave without experiencing a special touch from God. It might come through something said by Joyce or a guest speaker, through a worship song, a divine connection with someone you meet, or something you might hear in passing.

But odds are good, you’ll never be the same after experiencing one of these conferences. God is always in attendance and His presence is pervasive. As unique and creative as any concert, each session opens with worship—a powerful time of heartfelt devotion led by dynamic worship leaders such as Hillsong’s Darlene Zschech and the British Christian band Delirious?

“We’re proud to partner with Joyce Meyer Ministries,” said Delirious? lead singer Martin Smith. “We like to see the presence of God come when we play, and that’s what happens when we lead worship at Joyce’s ....

MUMBAI AWAITS….In a city where no one really bothers to look around, one cannot help but notice the hoardings and banners announcing the Joyce Meyer’s Festival of Life 2008. Whether it is at traffic signals, or just huge vertical banners draped down apartment buildings, one thing is for sure.. Mumbaikars are wondering what this festival is all about. MMRDA Grounds – A place which staged India’s biggest events ever like Bollywood’s Filmfare Awards, live concerts of Shakira, Pink Floyd, and just concluded Bindaas live which saw actors including Shahrukh Khan perform, will now see for the first time in Mumbai, Joyce Meyer’s conference and festival. As you walk in, it’s a busy place. Chairs are being laid out, laborers yelling, sound engineers measuring distances to lay out cables, giant LED (liquid electronic displays) walls being installed … preparations are going on in full speed. Most of the local teams working for us are the same ones who’ve worked for most of the events mentioned above. For them, it’s just another big event.Until now, these grounds were being prepared for the arrival of super stars from India and all over the world. But this week, it’s being prepared for the arrival of the King of Kings, the Creator of the Universe, the Beginning and the End, the only Living God– Jesus Christ!Reminds you of how vast preparations were being so meticulously done by an army-like workforce for King Solomon’s temple, with every detail being taken care get ready a place where the presence of God can fall and dwell forever.That’s exactly what will take place from January 17-20th in MMRDA Grounds, Mumbai. Every little and big work being carried out is only for one purpose – to invite the Almighty God from heaven to earth, to dwell and move among every person that steps into these grounds.And when the presence of God comes, there is healing for body and soul, freedom for those bound, freedom from generational curses, darkness will flee and we’ll find righteousness, joy, peace , love and abundant life.When the presence of God enters a place, it erases all history, regardless of what the place was once used for, it will never remain the same again.

From the International Cricket Council
For immediate release (especially in India)

The ICC have announced several changes to the playing conditions for the forthcoming 3rd test in Perth between Australia and India. These changes include:
* Australia must win.
* The umpires shall be nominated by the Australian team. It will be acceptable if reserve Australian players rotate as umpires.
* During the game all appeals shall be referred to the Australian management team and the Australian media contingent prior to any decision being made. (This includes where an Australin player may appear to the naked eye to have been clean bowled.)
* When the Australian team is batting the boundary rope shall be moved inwards 20 metres.
*Indian bowlers shall bowl under arm.
* Australia must always be the winning team.
* Any time the Indian captain is on the field he shall be restrained in a full length strait jacket and muzzled.
* Any Indian spin bowler must advise the Aussie batsman in advance what type of delivery is going to be bowled.
* At any time Andrew Symons is on the field he must not wear a gorilla suit and must not accept any sledging in the light hearted manner that this is intended.
* Australia must win at all costs. Australia will pay umpires up to $500.00 for a dodgy decision, depending on the quality of the batsman.
* Piggy Hogg the Aussie 3rd Class spin bowler, will be cleared on appeal and be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.
* Australian batsman may be permitted to use larger bats.
* Indian batsmen may use a bat every fifth over.
*Indian fieldsman should praise every batting attempt by the Australians by saying "Good shot chaps."Instead of calling them "Crutch scratching snot sucking spitters" Apart from this Indian players are not permitted to speak.
* During the lunch and tea break both teams shall get together and have a cup of tea.
* And decide that Australia must win.

The ICC and the BCCI hope that all Indians will understand these minor changes are intended in the best interest of the game.

The ICC would also like to announce that Steve Bucknor has been appointed as the ICC's new cricketing ambassador to Kazikstan. The ICC wishes Steve all the best in this important, newly created role.
