Come join us for a time of ministry with Becky Dvorak, Healing Evangelist and full time Missionary to Guatemala. Becky Dvorak is a prophetic minister, evangelist, missionary, and author whose daily life gives way to the spiritual gifts fully operating, with signs following! I have always believed in divine healing and I’ve seen people healed (mostly over time, progressive), but my Missions trip to Guatemala was the first time for me experiencing God move the way He did in the services in Guatemala.

On this trip, we were 8 American women, ranging in ages from 25 – 65, plus the American couple, David and Becky Dvorak, who are ministers of healing in their orphanage in Guatemala (since 1994)…they are well-respected in their area of Guatemala, and we ministered at 4 different churches while we were there training, leading up to a 2-day crusade, where there were more than 2,600 in attendance (most of them walked there…no vehicles).

Becky preached on the 7 places Jesus shed His Blood (Garden of Gethsemane/conquered human will, plucked/pulled off His beard/bore our shame, whipping post/by His wound we are healed, Crown of thorns/became and reversed the curse, hands nailed/His hands loved, healed, fed...restored our hands to be a blessing, feet nailed/restored to us authority that was lost by Adam, and pierced in His side/remaining Blood and Water (cleansing Blood, streams of living water for our new birth)…this being the completed work of redemption for the people of God…Jesus left nothing undone.

Then Becky spoke about us being made in the mirror image of Elohim (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) and we were made just a little lower than Elohim (many Bible translations are incorrectly translated, in that they state we were made a little lower than the angels). With this misinterpretation, if made LOWER than the angels (Satan is a fallen angel, and, as an angel, would have dominion over us)…this was all deep teaching, to cause us to understand the redemptive work that Jesus did for us, His love for us, and who we are in Him…as is He (Jesus), so are we, in this world (1 John 4:17).

And these signs shall follow them (us) that believe…and Jesus was with them (us), confirming His word with signs following (Mark 16:17-20). As we laid hands on people, they were so ready to receive of the Lord that they received. He met them right there, with healing in His wings…it was incredible! Hundreds were touched by the power of God, with no more room on the altar floor area…we eventually began going out into the congregation to meet people right where they were…Holy Spirit led, and we followed. To tell people that they were made in His image, they just broke and wept. People began bringing their children up to receive of the Lord…there were many salvations, healing, and people set free, in Jesus’ name.

Men came forward to ask God to change their hearts, to heal their marriages and to forgive them. Men asked of the Lord for reconciliation in their homes…men asked. I am used to women asking, but it was quite moving to have men asking and contending for their families in such a tender way. There were many women with tumors and ovarian-type issues, and we trust many were healed, as it was one of the “words of knowledge” that came forth, during ministry.

I believe that not one will leave this meeting untouched by the power of God. I am forever changed, and am learning to become more yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit, and pray to greatly impact the world around us, for Jesus’ name sake.

Becky’s book, Dare to Believe will be available for purchase at the meeting. The book gives testimony to all of the divine healing and miracles experienced in the lives of ALL of the children of their orphanage, and AIDS home…not one is still sick. God is so good, and this is the life He has for all of us.

Join us for an evening of ministry and the healing power of Jesus Christ, and the opportunity to have the gift of healing activated and operating in your own life!

The event is free. A love offering will be received for Becky’s ministry.

There will be personal ministry and prayer for healing.

Please Note: God, in His great desire to see us blessed and equipped for His service, has provided various ways and means of impacting our lives. One of those ways is the Ministry of Impartation through the laying on of hands by mature, recognized Leaders.

Impartation has to do with the giving and receiving of spiritual gifts, blessings, healing, baptism in the Holy Spirit, etc., for the work of the ministry. It is the transference of these "gifts" from one man or woman of God to another, especially through the laying on of hands. There is an invisible flowing of spiritual ability from one to the other. That invisible flowing goes from the spirit and heart of the imparter through the arms and hands into the spirit and heart of the one having hands laid on them.

The Apostle Paul had this desire to help others to rise in effective ministry through all that God had given to him. He learned that he could pass on through impartation blessings and gifting’s of God.

"For I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong - that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other's faith" (Romans 1:11-12 , NIV).

7th Annual Taste of Greece: October 9-11 in Sterling, Virginia
Greek Orthodox Parish of Loudoun County Celebrates 7th Annual Greek Festival

The Taste of Greece will be held October 9-11, 2015 at Patton Hall - Sterling Volunteer Rescue, 46700 Middlefield Drive, Sterling, VA 20165. Contact Greg Cherpes for more information at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

The festival, which runs Friday through Sunday, serves as a fundraiser for the church and an opportunity to celebrate Greek culture in Loudoun.

Friday 4 pm – 9 pm
Saturday 11 am – 9 pm
Sunday 11 am – 8 pm

See Taste of Greece Menu at http://greekorthodoxloudoun.org/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderfiles/2015TOGmenu2.pdf

As in the past, I plan to invite my family to the festival to experience Greek culture and enjoy the great food. Like many, we desire the gyros. However the Greek lasagna is one of my favorites. The meals allow me to reminisce about earlier days living in New York where Greek restaurants are numerous. My wife and I hoped to observe some of the music and dancing as well as a way to experience a relatively new culture to Loudoun County.

Taste of Greece wants to share aspects of their culture with the community and because the festival serves as a fundraiser for their church, a portion of the proceeds are designated to support local charities. As usual, a good turnout with a steady stream of event-goers from opening until closing is expected. The event improves with every passing year and each event grows more crowded than the one before. The festival objective is to provide a mix of activities and educational opportunities to expand interest in Greek culture.

The Greek Orthodox Parish congregation is so grateful for all of the support from the community. The church elders believe it is through culture, understood as customs, traditions, religious faith and civilization in general that we all come to appreciate one another.


About the Orthodox Church:

Orthodoxy touches many lands, in which many languages are spoken. Whatever your background, we are glad of your interest and bid you peace in our Lord Jesus Christ. We invite you to work and pray with us in giving glory to God the Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. All are welcome!

The Orthodox Church embodies and expresses the rich spiritual treasures of Eastern Christianity. It should not be forgotten that the Gospel of Christ was first preached and the First Christian communities were established in the lands surrounding the Mediterranean Sea. It was in these eastern regions of the old Roman Empire that the Christian faith matured in its struggle against paganism and heresy. There, the great Fathers lived and taught. It was in the cities of the East that the fundamentals of our faith were proclaimed at the Seven Ecumenical Councils.

The spirit of Christianity which was nurtured in the East had a particular favor. It was distinct, though not necessarily opposed, to that which developed in the Western portion of the Roman Empire and subsequent Medieval Kingdoms in the West.

While Christianity in the West developed in lands which knew the legal and moral philosophy of Ancient Rome, Eastern Christianity developed in lands which knew the Semitic and Hellenistic cultures.

While the West was concerned with the Passion of Christ and the sin of man, the East emphasized the Resurrection of Christ and the deification of man.

While the West leaned toward a legalistic view of religion, the East espoused a more mystical theology.

Since the Early Church was not monolithic, the two great traditions existed together for more than a thousand years until the Great Schism divided the Church. Today, Roman Catholics and Protestants are heirs to the Western tradition, and the Orthodox are heirs to the Eastern tradition.

Christians of the Eastern Churches call themselves Orthodox. This description comes to us from the fifth century and has two meanings which are closely related.

The first definition is "true teaching." The Orthodox Church believes that she has maintained and handed down the Christian faith, free from error and distortion, from the days of the Apostles.

The second definition, which is actually the more preferred, is "true praise." To bless, praise, and glorify God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is the fundamental purpose of the Church. All her activities, even her doctrinal formulations, are directed toward this goal.

Excerpt from Rev. Thomas Fitzgerald - "The Orthodox Church - An Introduction."

Dear Parents and Teachers of Loudoun County:

Joyful greetings as you start this new school year.

I am Faith Cha, Director of International Learning Center of Leesburg. We are entering our third year of teaching ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) classes here in Leesburg. We want to offer ESOL classes to the immigrants in our community to help them adapt to their exciting, new life in the United States.

Briefly, our classes meet twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Hours are 9:30am – 11:30am. We meet at 19227 Gleedsville Rd, Leesburg, VA 20175. The leadership at the Worship Center have graciously opened their doors for us to hold our classes at the church. Cost is $50 (tuition) and $30 for textbook. Classes start September 22nd, and run for 12 weeks.

During the classes, a warm atmosphere of learning and friendship usually develops among the students and the teachers. Volunteers from the local churches manage hospitality every week, giving their time and bringing refreshments, spending their own treasure to serve this international community. Everyone is so blessed and feels much honored. Please distribute this article to friends and relatives who would benefit from these classes.

The Church and its ministries are relevant for news articles all year round, not just during Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. The Church and the media have many philosophical differences, yet common denominators link them together. Both have a message they want to articulate. An inherent responsibility for both is to communicate successfully.
