“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 NKJV
We join with you in celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior, King Jesus! We just returned from a memorable weekend in Nashville where our dear friend and film director of the upcoming movie on Mylon’s life, Robert Deaton, drove two hours one way to attend our Sunday morning service. Mylon asked him to share how the movie came about. We thought you’d enjoy hearing how God orchestrated this dream come true. (Watch the video on our YouTube page.) Because of God’s great love for us all, He is working on your dreams too!
We recently watched an interview with a world renown singer who said her number one goal in life was “to be loved and to love.” Isn’t that what we all want? But without Jesus that goal isn’t possible because “God IS Love.” (I John 4:8) It was because of our Heavenly Father’s great LOVE that He sent His Son, Jesus to the earth as a sacrifice for our sins. When we believed in Him, our sins were forgiven and heaven is now our home! We had no eternal hope but our forever began with the birth of Jesus.
Just as the hymn says, we have blessed assurance because “Jesus is mine.” We will live forever with LOVE. So, no matter what is going on around us, remember this world is not our home! Because of Jesus, we always have hope. We always have a reason to rejoice:
“Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance….Love will last forever. Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:7, 13 NLT
According to these verses, we can choose to be a reflection of God’s forever love to everyone we meet this holiday season. Let’s allow our words, actions and reactions to be motivated by Love.
- We never give up!
- We never lose faith!
- We are always hopeful!
- We don’t quit when it gets hard!
As you sing Christmas carols this season, remember why you are singing. Just as David said in Psalms 89:1 NIV, “I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever…” When Israel sang of God’s FOREVER LOVE in 2 Chronicles 20:21-22, it won the battle for them!
“After consulting the people, the king appointed singers to walk ahead of the army, singing to the Lord and praising him for his holy splendor. This is what they sang: “Give thanks to the Lord; his faithful love endures forever!” At the very moment they began to sing and give praise, the Lord caused the armies of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir to start fighting among themselves.” NLT
Glory to God, His great LOVE NEVER FAILS! As you faithfully sow your seed this month in celebration of God’s eternal gift of Jesus, please know that He sees your giving. Psalms 37:18 TPT says, “Day by day the Lord watches the good deeds of the godly and he prepares for them his forever-reward.” For all eternity you will be rewarded for your gracious giving here in the earth to help others know how much JESUS LOVES THEM.
We love you and wish you a very Merry Christmas!
Mylon and Christi
P.S. Don’t forget all the faith resources we have available at www.mylon.org that would make wonderful Christmas gifts. Thank you again for your faithfulness to help us share God’s forever love around the world. Together, we reached more people for Jesus this year than ever before! Love never fails!
OUR BEST DAYS ARE AHEAD!
We want to start this letter by expressing a heartfelt THANK YOU. Your prayers of agreement and faithful giving as Mylon has been recovering for the past few months have made all the difference for us. As I write this, we are rejoicing over a wonderful report we just received from Mylon’s team of doctors. He is getting stronger everyday and we are looking forward to planning ministry for 2022. This year has been a powerful reminder that we need each other in the body of Christ. Of course partnership goes both ways. We pray faith filled prayers over you everyday but we want to know how can we specifically pray for you? Please contact our office and ask for our anointed prayer team so that we’ll know how to agree with you. It would be an honor to join our faith with yours. We are in this together!
Recently, we attended a service at our home church, Eagle Mountain Intl. Church, with our covenant friends of over 23 years, Pastors Mark and Trina Hankins. Mark gave a prophetic word to Mylon that confirmed what The Lord had instructed us to declare: Our best days are ahead of us! If you’d like to watch it, connect with our YouTube page at www.mylon.org. We want to encourage your faith that what’s ahead is GREATER GLORY.
Isaiah 60:1-2 AMPC says, “ARISE [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you–rise to a new life]! Shine… for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you! For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you, and His glory shall be SEEN on you.”
We need to arise (GET UP!) from the discouragement of 2020 & 2021. God is ready to show off in our lives. Why? Because Jesus is coming soon and we need to take millions of people with us to heaven! They desperately need to SEE God’s goodness in us. Psalms 34:8 NKJV says, “Oh, taste and SEE that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!” Please get this: you can SEE the goodness of God in a real believer’s life.
First Chronicles 16:23 AMPC admonishes us to “SHOW FORTH from day to day His salvation.” Salvation includes: healing, deliverance, preservation and provision. When the world looks at our lives, that’s what they need to see! Just as billboards on the side of the highway get our attention, our lives should get noticed by being billboards of God’s goodness!
God’s glory is His goodness. In Exodus 33:18 Moses asked The Lord to show him His glory. God responded in verse 19 saying, “I will make all My goodness pass before you…” There’s a time coming when Habakkuk 2:14 says “the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord (His goodness) as the waters cover the sea.” We believe we’re in the midst of the last GREAT AWAKENING right before Jesus returns. What an amazing time to be alive. We’ve all been preparing in Holy Ghost school for such a time as this.
According to God, our future is brighter than our past. No matter what’s behind, in Christ, what’s ahead is always greater! Haggai 2:9 NKJV confirms, “The GLORY of this latter temple shall be GREATER than the former,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace.” We’re about to experience a greater measure of God’s glory than we’ve ever known before. To empower us to demonstrate His Spirit and His power in this final hour. Did you notice that with this greater glory comes PEACE? Praise God, I’ll take it!
If you receive it too, declare with us: “I believe that my best days are ahead of me! By the grace of God, I will show forth His goodness everywhere I go. I want to be a witness for His glory. That others may look at my life and taste and SEE that The Lord is good!”
As you sow your precious seed this month, be encouraged that Psalm 21:3 AMPC says that God “sends blessings of good things to meet you!” When we choose to trust that our best days are ahead, we can rejoice knowing that our good God is setting up divine appointments for His goodness, favor and blessing to meet us everywhere we go. We are so grateful for you and pray you have a very…
We Love You,
Mylon & Christi

This is a VICTORY in the MAKING! 🎉
In the midst of one adversity after another, these powerful prophetic words from our father in the faith, Kenneth Copeland, were like a shining lighthouse in the raging storm. We explained to Brother Copeland that in each and every evil attempt to “steal, kill and destroy” God had faithfully delivered us every time. He suddenly declared, “This is a victory in the making!”
Of course we would all prefer for our victories to be instantaneous. We’d love it if the moment we make our bold declaration everything would immediately change right before our eyes. In the spirit, that’s exactly what happens. But the manifestation in the natural many times unfolds one day at a time. That’s where the fight of faith is, in waiting upon The Lord. When facing a battle that may rage day after day, week after week and possibly year after year, our confidence can be affected.
Confidence is defined as “trust, assurance, safety and security, boldness; courage.” For example: Do we trust that our future is assured? Is our family going to be safe? Do we have job security? In the midst of this cancel culture, how bold can I be? Will I have the strength to courageously face each crisis? These are all questions that involve confidence. But He has given us a promise that will give us confidence in every crisis:
“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” I John 5:14-15 NKJV
Glory to God!! When we pray according to His will which is His Word, we KNOW that He hears us. When we are confident that our Heavenly Father hears our prayers then we KNOW our prayers are being answered! Unwavering confidence comes from KNOWING.
“And we KNOW that ALL things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28 NKJV
We can have confidence knowing that all things right now are working together for our good.
Recently, we heard The Lord clearly say, “Your best days are ahead of you.” We realized we had been thinking with affection about what life used to be like before all of the trials that began in 2020. That’s easy to do especially if in the last year we’ve had the most intense challenges we’ve ever experienced. Here are a few examples: Are we thinking with sentiment about life before COVID? Or maybe what life was like before we or a loved one received that incurable or terminal diagnosis? The apostle Paul, a mighty man of God who wrote 14 books of the New Testament said that he still had to work on this area of forgetting the past:
“No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” Philippians 3:13-14 NLT
In obedience to The Lord we must stay focused and keep looking forward. Jesus is coming soon and every one of us are called to finish our race. Remember, we serve THE GREATER ONE. HE LIVES IN US! I John 4:4 KJV says, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is IN YOU, than he that is in the world.” As we trust in His faithfulness, He IS working on our behalf. Say this with me, “We have the victory in Christ Jesus. It’s already won. It’s already done!”
As you sow your generous seed this month, you can be confident knowing that an abundant harvest is coming because Luke 6:38 NLT promises, “Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.” WooHoo! When we give our best to The Lord, get ready for an abundant over the top harvest coming your way! Let’s say together, “2021 is my year of Divine Healing, Divine Health, Divine Prosperity and Divine Recovery!”
We Love and appreciate you,
Mylon and Christi
P.S. VISION UPDATE: We want to thank you again for your generosity that helped the ministry tremendously as Mylon has been recovering from surgery. The Lord supernaturally strengthened Mylon and we were able to drive to Hot Springs, AR and film 10 On the Road to Freedom shows in September. We’ll also be filming on an island near Galveston later this month. The editing costs of each show, run approximately $6,000 each for 52 shows a year. We continue to receive reports daily of those whose lives are being changed as they are set on their road to freedom. We count it a great honor and privilege to be an encouragement to you!!
Recently in the midst of one devil orchestrated emergency after another, we realized that we were resisting discouragement from the constant trials. Just watching the news and hearing about the pain the entire world is in can have that same effect. BUT GOD!! Immediately the Holy Spirit encouraged us to stay in the fight because “This is worth fighting for!” What is this? It is God’s promise manifested for whatever we need: healing, deliverance, restoration, and prosperity.
First we must understand that we are in a war. We would not have been given armor if we weren’t in a battle. Ephesians 6:11 instructs us to “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” When I joined the Army at age 17, I was what they called “Gung-Ho.” I was eager to learn about how to win the war. But when we were being taught vital principles that would keep us alive in battle, there were several in my classes who were asleep! I thought, “Man, I don’t want to be in the trenches with them!” Please get this: We don’t study The Word to have a nice church service on Easter Sunday. We study The Word so we know what to do when all hell breaks loose!
We are commanded in I Timothy 6:12 to “Fight the good fight of faith.” There is a FIGHT to faith. We also know that “The battle is The Lords” (I Samuel 17:47) but we do have a part. There are several keys to winning the fight:
- We must realize that we are in a spiritual war. Our battle is NOT against people.“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.” II Corinthians 10:3-5
- CAST DOWN EVERY THOUGHT that disagrees with The Word. Thoughts become words that affect whether we win or lose. That is why Jesus said in Matthew 6:31, “Take no thought, saying…” Once we speak fear, we have taken that thought. So when fear attacks our mind, our battle cry is FAITH! We believe God’s Word!
- The POWER of DEATH AND LIFE IS IN OUR WORDS! (Proverbs 18:21) We must keep our words in agreement with God’s Word. Jesus defeated the devil in every temptation when HE SAID, “IT IS WRITTEN!”
- REFUSE TO DRAW BACK IN FEAR! “But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul.” Hebrews 10:39
- PRAISE THE LORD! In II Chronicles 20:21-22 when the Israelites began to praise and worship God, The Lord sent ambushments and their enemy was completely destroyed!
- PRAY IN THE SPIRIT “Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.” Romans 8:26
We’re not telling you to do something that has not been required of us. As we have practiced these war time instructions, we are seeing victory on every side!!
Another way we stay in the fight, is we keep sowing! Jehovah Jireh our Provider promised that when we GIVE, IT SHALL BE (not maybe) GIVEN TO US IN ABUNDANCE! As you give your precious seed this month, declare with us I Corinthians 15:57, “Thanks be to God, who gives me the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” When we stay in faith, VICTORY is guaranteed!
Praise Report: We want to THANK YOU for your faith filled prayers for Mylon’s heart surgery. Recovery is taking time but praise The Lord, he is getting stronger every day! Because we had no choice but to reschedule two church meetings, your generous giving supported the ministry in a time of need. Your giving also insured that editing of On the Road to Freedom would continue on time.
We Love you and we are praying for you every day,
Mylon & Christi
P.S. When you are tempted to be discouraged, watch On the Road to Freedom over and over again on our website at www.mylon.org. All episodes are free anytime on-demand! Listen to the podcast until it drives out fear and discouragement. Remember that your seed enables people all over the world to also receive encouragement from The Word that they can WIN in life. Thank you for your faithfulness!
GET BACK UP! ⤴️
“and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,” Ephesians 1:19-20 NKJV
It is obvious by all of the tragedy in the news and catastrophic events around the world that there is great spiritual warfare going on in the earth today. Being inundated with bad news can also take place right where we live: our family, marriage or job. We may feel inadequate to face these troubled times but God has already made available to us supernatural strength. If we believe it, Ephesians 3:16 AMPC says that we are, “…strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit.” Ephesians 1:19-20 above explains that this strengthening force is the same power that raised Christ from the dead!
Christi and I have learned that in life unexpected things happen. Kenneth E. Hagin explained it this way, “You think you’re doing good in faith. Then something happens and all of the sudden you are flat on your back looking up at the sky wondering how you got there.” We confess there have been times this year we felt the same way. Maybe you have also received a bad report that landed you flat on your back: laid off at work, a bad doctors report, or a child in rebellion. I Corinthians 2:5 explains that we must choose to put our faith in the power of God NOT the wisdom of men. This is vital because the power of God is lifting power. His resurrection power will enable us to GET BACK UP!
Habakkuk 3:19 AMPC says, “The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds' feet and will make me to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make [spiritual] progress upon my high places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility]!” Did you notice that when challenging times come, God calls them “high places?” Only when we’re tested, do we find out if we really believe God’s Word is true! We can either fall apart in times of trial or we can grow stronger. In Isaiah 41:10 God commands us not to fear because He is with us to help us and as we trust Him, He “…will strengthen us and harden us to difficulties...”
During times of crisis, we can’t depend on men: doctors, our employer or the government to bail us out. This is what Jesus referred to in Matthew 7 as “building our house on the sand.” When the storms of life came to that house, “great was its fall.” That is why our lives need to be built on The solid Rock of God’s Word. It is unchanging and will withstand and overcome every evil attack. For example, let’s look at rock climbing. It is a huge sport that recently had a hit movie on the subject of free solo climbing. With no ropes for protection, the only security for the climber is to grasp a rock or ledge and pull themselves up. Now think of the promises of God as the rock/ledge. When we lay hold and grasp each promise by faith, with only The Lord as our help, we can pull ourselves UP on His promise. We can go up in our outlook, up in our health, up in our relationships, and up in our finances. The only direction God intends for His children to go is up!
We’ve also seen when climbers grasp a rock that can’t carry their weight. It crumbles in their hand and suddenly their life is hanging on by a thread. But rest assured when we lay hold of the promises of God, The Truth can handle the weight of our problem. It won’t crumble under pressure. It will stand strong in the midst of every adversity. Let The Word do the work. Our job is to “hold fast” in faith. Do not release your grip! Do not release your faith! Keep laying hold of the promises of God in each and every challenge, climbing higher and higher. You will soon find that you are standing on top of the mountain that you once thought was insurmountable. Check out your heavenly view- blessed, healed, restored, happy and victorious!
As you sow your seed this month, we want to cast a new vision for our TV ministry. Because we were unable to travel and film during the 2020 COVID shutdown, we’ve had no choice but to air some re-runs. This year, we filmed in Charleston, SC and in our home town in Texas.
- Since COVID the cost of travel has almost doubled. So to be wise we have upcoming film shoots booked close to home: in Hot Springs, AR in September and Galveston Island, TX in October.
- Each show costs approximately $6,000 times 52 shows a year.
- There are 20 shows between now and October which is $120,000. This new goal covers the expenses for traveling with our team, filming and editing of each show.
We want to thank you in advance for your faithfulness. No matter the size of the seed, when we are quick to obey God we can boldly declare, “The resurrection power of God is causing me to rise above and go beyond what I could ever ask or think. I’m going up!”
We Love You and we are praying for you every day,
Mylon & Christi
P.S. THANK YOU for helping us to buy all new TV gear and equipment that is state of the art technology! We can’t wait for you to see how much greater the quality of the shows will be. We hope to see you at a meeting this year so that we can thank you in person. God bless you!
IT’S MIRACLE TIME! 🙌
“And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your FAITH should NOT be in the wisdom of men but in the POWER of God.”
I Corinthians 2:4-5 NKJV
In the past 5 months we have been in a fight of faith. We are so thankful for godly counsel but we have had to hear much of the wisdom of men. In the midst of this intense test, The Lord prompted us to be mindful that our faith rest securely in His power NOT in the wisdom of men. If you look at the state the world is in today especially over the past year, it is obvious that man’s wisdom can’t fix it. Man’s wisdom will always be limited. But God’s power Ephesians 1:19 says is UNLIMITED and immeasurable! His POWER abides in us by His Spirit and works for our behalf for “us who believe…” Again, we are talking about faith in the power of God. The power of God is HOW you receive divine healing, deliverance, and restoration.
Like us, some of you may be experiencing what the world calls an impossible situation. It can be hard to dream or imagine past that “incurable diagnosis” or natural impossibility. But when we choose to believe God, Ephesians 3:20 says that His power comes to our rescue and accomplishes: “exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think (dream or imagine.)”
Romans Chapter 4 explains that Abraham was also facing an impossibility. God promised him that he would have a son in his old age. The Word says that Abraham’s body was as good as dead and Sarah’s body was far past child bearing age. BUT ABRAHAM HAD A PROMISE FROM GOD! Romans 4:21 says that he was fully persuaded that “God was able and mighty to keep His Word and to DO what He had PROMISED.”
Please understand that the promises of God contain His Power! That’s why when the angel came to Mary in Luke 1:34 and told her she would give birth to the Savior, she said, “how can this be since I do not know a man?” The angel’s response in verse 37 was, “For with God NOTHING IS EVER IMPOSSIBLE.” Here’s why: “And no word from God (you could say no promise from God) shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.” The promise of God contains the power within it to fulfill it!
When a challenge looks impossible there are only 2 ways to respond: Fear or Faith. Fear reacts. Faith responds. Mary’s faith response in Luke 1:38 that resulted in the supernatural power of God being manifested in her body: “Let it be done to me according to what you have said.” Or you could say, according to what God has promised.
And guess what? We have 7,000 promises!! That means there are 7,000 pathways to the power of God being released for your individual circumstance, for your unique situation. That’s why when the enemy comes to you and says, “It’s too late for you. It’s never going to happen.” You can boldly declare, “Ha Ha Ha devil, I HAVE A PROMISE FROM GOD!” We can rejoice knowing that I Corinthians 1:9 AMPC promises that “GOD IS FAITHFUL- He is ever true to His promise. He can be depended on!” So, are you ready to make your declaration of faith? We believe and therefore we speak: “I have faith in the power of God and in His promises to me for my health, my family and my finances. I believe there will be a fulfillment of those things promised to me by The Lord. I have a promise from God!”
We are thrilled to report that Phase 4 of our TV equipment purchase is now completed! All of our new TV cameras, lights, and gear are PAID IN FULL, Glory to God! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for helping us share The Good News around the world. We are doing our happy dance!
Now that we are able to travel and film on location, your precious seed sown each month is supporting the filming and editing costs of each show. (Approximately $5,000 per show x 52 shows each year.) As you give, be encouraged by Luke 1:45, “BLESSED are you when you BELIEVE that there will be a FULFILLMENT of those things spoken to you by the Lord.” The blessing of The Lord comes upon those who believe they will see promises of The Lord manifested in their lives, no matter how impossible in the natural. Remember, “All things are possible to him who believes!”
We Love You and pray for you every day,
Mylon & Christi

MERCY FOR TODAY
“This I recall to my mind, Therefore I have hope. Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions FAIL NOT. They are NEW every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:21-23 NKJV
These past 15 months have been some of the most intense challenges we have ever personally faced. As you know we are also seeing increased spiritual warfare in our nation and the world. The GOOD NEWS is that it’s obvious that JESUS IS COMING SOON! Our enemy, satan, knows that his time is short and he is trying to stop the plan of God for the greatest revival our world has ever seen! MILLIONS who are in the “valley of decision” are going to make the decision for JESUS right before He returns to rescue His church and rapture us to heaven.
Are you ready? Not just to meet Him face to face but have you answered the call? If we have been more focused on the problem instead of the answer, we can turn that around simply by meditating on His mercy. The scriptures above have brought us such strength and peace in these turbulent times. Notice that the author, Jeremiah, says that in the midst of bad circumstances, he CHOSE purposefully what he was thinking about! When he chose to focus on the MERCY of God, his discouragement turned into hope! We never run out of hope because God’s tender mercies are new EVERY morning!
Psalms 145:8-9 “The LORD is gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger and great in mercy. The LORD is good to all, And His tender mercies are over all His works.” NKJV
Mercy can be defined as, “That benevolence, or tenderness of heart which disposes a person to treat an offender better than he deserves. An act of favor. Compassion manifested towards a person in distress.” (Webster’s 1828 dictionary) One of the meanings of God’s Mercy (Chesed) is eternal or everlasting love. Now and for all eternity we will enjoy God’s unfailing love because of our covenant with Him by the precious blood of King Jesus.
“But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting.” Psalms 103:17 NKJV
“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me ALL the days of my life…” Psalms 23:6 NKJV
“…Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies.” Psalms 103:4 NKJV
Whatever you are facing today, please stop whatever you are doing and begin to praise The Lord with these words: “Praise the LORD, For His mercy endures forever.” This was Israel’s battle cry in II Chronicles 20:21. As they began to praise Him for His great mercy, God caused their enemies to turn on each other and destroy one another. Israel just walked into their camp and took all the spoil!!
Now that many churches are reopening and we are back on the road, we’d love the opportunity to share the love of God with you in person. Please check our itinerary www.mylon.org for when we are going to be in your area! Also, don’t forget the FREE On the Road to Freedom podcast where you can get the “Word for the week” on the go. We received a report last week that in just six months we have had thousands of downloads from across the globe: North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and Oceania. Praise God your faithful giving and prayer is literally taking the message of the gospel around the world!
As you sow your holy seed this month, remember that whatever we need from The Lord, Hebrews 4:16 says that we can “come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” God loves you and He is FOR YOU! We are praying for you to rest in God’s faithfulness and everlasting love!
We love you too,
Mylon & Christi
P.S. TV Equipment UPDATE: We are still awaiting a backorder delivery for Phase 3. Then we will begin Phase 4. The amount needed to complete the purchase (including Phase 3) of ALL of our TV equipment/gear is $9,500. THANK YOU for your faithful giving to expand the kingdom of God in the earth!
ARE YOU A PRAISER OR A COMPLAINER?
Glory to God, we are having a marvelous time serving The Lord! We just returned from filming in Charleston, SC. For the FIRST time, we used our NEW TV cameras and equipment. Wow, we can’t wait for you to see the gorgeous b-roll that our “dream team” was able to capture with these state of the art cameras that your giving paid for, THANK YOU! Your prayers also made a tremendous difference on this recent filming trip but there still were obstacles that we had to overcome by the grace of God. To do that, we had to refuse to be critical and choose instead to stay thankful.
We can make it to heaven finding fault when things don’t go our way but according to the Word, complaining will stop our dreams. In Matthew 12:33-34 King Jesus said: “for a tree is known by its fruit… For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” Negativity is a heart issue. It doesn’t matter what our excuse is, if we speak disrespectful, critical words then disrespect and criticism is in our heart. Here’s a quick test. Because words are the fruit by which we are known to others, if others were to describe us by words alone, what do you think they would say? Are you a Complainer or Praiser? Are you frustrated or thankful? A judgmental fault finder or a loving and kind encourager? People may not remember our exact words but they will remember how our words made them feel.
We need to understand that being negative is not a little thing to God. When the Israelites complained, God called it wicked & evil. And they never made it to the promise land! Their dreams never came true. Why? Because the Word records that they were griping instead of being thankful. I Corinthians 10:10-11 NLT warns us, “And don’t grumble as some of them did, and then were destroyed by the angel of death. These things happened to them as EXAMPLES for us. They were written down to warn us who live at the end of the age.”
Jesus is coming soon and choosing to be thankful affects our witness. Philippians 2:14-15 NKJV says, “Do ALL things without complaining… that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world.” Understanding the following will set you free from negativity:
- Our attitude belongs to us.
- No one can make us have a bad attitude.
- Being grateful is a choice of our will.
There are always things we can be thankful for and things that are frustrating because of sin in the world. We choose what we talk about! King David in Psalms 34:1 said, “I WILL bless the Lord at ALL times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” Then in Psalms 103:1-5 NLT we remember all the good things God does for us. Please declare with us: “Let all that I am praise the Lord; with my whole heart, I will praise His holy name. Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things He does for me. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies. He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!”
As you sow your precious seed this month, with all our heart, thank you for investing in sharing the good news of the Gospel with viewers around the world. We believe that when they watch the beauty of God’s creation in On the Road to Freedom they will “taste and SEE that The Lord is GOOD!” We are standing with you for freedom from negativity, complaining and finding fault. We praise God with you and for YOU!
We love you and we are praying for you every day,
Mylon & Christi

Happy Resurrection weekend! JESUS is RISEN! When we received Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we were set free from the dominion of darkness and transferred into the kingdom of the Son of God’s Love! (Col. 1:13) But today is Good Friday and we remember how our King Jesus endured the torment of crucifixion 3 days before the resurrection. Christi and I were recently sharing the love of God with someone who questioned “Why would a loving God put His Son through such torture?” We were quick to answer: HE DID IT FOR YOU AND ME! John 3:16 says, “For God so LOVED the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Our Heavenly Father’s plan of redemption is two fold. First, that we could escape the penalty of sin and hell and have eternal life with Him in heaven. Second, so that we could be delivered from sickness and disease!
Jesus endured being beaten and flogged by the Roman soldiers until He was no longer recognizable. Isaiah 52:14 NIV says, “His appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being and His form marred beyond human likeness—” Jesus was flogged with a whip that had small pieces of glass, bones and metal attached to leather strips which would have stripped the skin off his back exposing muscle and bone. Why did He endure this incomprehensible pain and suffering? So that we could BE HEALED!
“Surely He has borne our griefs (Hebrew word is: sicknesses) And carried our sorrows (Hebrew word: diseases); Yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes WE ARE HEALED.” Isaiah 53:4-5
Matthew 8:17 confirms this again saying, “that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: “He Himself took OUR infirmities and bore OUR sicknesses.”
If Jesus bore it for us, we need not bear it! When were we healed? 2000 years ago! Please always remember that the plan of redemption is TWO FOLD. God’s will is that we have the same faith in our healing as we do our salvation. Jesus is the pure, unblemished lamb of God, sacrificed for us so that we might be in right standing with God and be set free from the bondage of sickness & disease: “Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might LIVE for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.” I Peter 2:24
In the Webster’s 1828 Dictionary, a dictionary based on the principles of God’s Word, healed is defined as: RESTORED to a sound state. As you may know, our father in the faith, Kenneth Copeland, prophesied that 2021 would be a year of DIVINE HEALTH, DIVINE HEALING, DIVINE PROSPERITY and DIVINE RECOVERY. Recovery and restoration have the same meaning of getting back what has been stolen. We stand and agree with you for TOTAL RESTORATION of divine healing and divine health in your spirit, soul and body!
“For I will restore health to you, and I will heal your wounds, says the Lord.” Jeremiah 30:17
We encourage you to look these scriptures up, meditate on them and declare them over your life and your family, especially if you or a loved one are being challenged with sickness or disease. For Psalms 107:20 promises, “He sends forth His word and heals them and rescues them from the pit and destruction.”
As you sow your precious seed into the kingdom of God this month, please say with us: “Jesus did it all for me! He bore my sins and now I am free from the law of sin and death. 2000 years ago, He bore all my sicknesses and diseases and by His stripes I AM HEALED! This is my year of restoration of divine healing, divine health and divine prosperity!”
We love you and call you healed,
Mylon & Christi

SONG OF DELIVERANCE
For The Lord is GOOD and His mercy endures forever! This past month, while laying hold of our greatest victory also came one of our greatest faith tests to date. As we have been seeking The Lord for His wisdom and spending time in His Word to receive revelation, we were prompted that many of you may also be in the midst of one of the biggest faith tests of your life. We want to encourage you today that our God surrounds you with songs of deliverance!
“You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.” Psalms 32:7 NIV
Another psalm that has been a source of great comfort and strength to us is Psalms 34. Seven times David specifically mentions how The Lord delivers, redeems and saves his life. We encourage you to read these verses out loud and meditate on these powerful promises (NKJV):
Verses 1-3 “I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make its boast in the LORD; The humble shall hear of it and be glad. Oh, magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together.” It’s vitally important to offer up the sacrifice of praise in times of trial.
Verses 4-5 “I sought the LORD, and He heard me, And delivered me from all my fears. They looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces were not ashamed.” As we keep our eyes focused on Jesus and His Word, we are filled with joy.
Verses 6-9 “This poor man cried out, and the LORD heard him, And saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them. Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Oh, fear (reverence) the LORD, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him.” When we choose to seek, revere and worship Him, we want for NOTHING!
Verse 15 “The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their cry.” Did you notice how many times David affirms that The Lord hears us when we pray? So cry out to Him today!
Verses 17-19 “The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles. The LORD is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the LORD delivers him out of them ALL.”
Notice that many are the afflictions of the righteous. So we should not think it strange when we are facing “trials and tribulations.” According to this psalm, our first step to deliverance is PRAISE. Second, is to fervently SEEK HIM, look solely to Him and cry out to Him. He is our HELP in time of need! We reverence Him as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. As we honor His Word, He promises to HEAR US and DELIVER US!
So no matter how impossible the trial or challenge may seem, we can be full of hope. We can sing a new song to the Lord; a song of deliverance. Please check out Mylon’s praise and worship CDs to help you bless The Lord at all times. As you sow your precious seed this month, we are in agreement with you that as you seek Him, revere and worship Him, there is NO LACK in your life of any good thing! We may have pressure on every side but declare with us, “The Lord delivers us out of them all!”
We Love you and we are praying for you every day,
Mylon and Christi
