In the early days, the Lord began to talk to me about waiting on Him….When we first came to California, we had a little house with a big fenced-off yard, a garden, and a chicken house. We cleaned the chicken manure out of the little chicken house, put a window in it, and made it a little place for me to just go out and wait on the Lord. I fasted and prayed there, sometimes taking nothing but water for days or weeks at a time, seeking the Lord and waiting on the Lord. It’s where this ministry was really born, in the old chicken house. I’ve never talked to you much about it, but that was important.
