Part 2

For a long time I didn’t really tell anyone about my relationship to Maria Woodworth Etter.. The reason I didn’t share about being related to her was because I saw how prideful some of the family members had become and I didn't want to be like that. I really didn't even start read her book until 5 years ago! In 2011 I bought our core group of people from my church a copy of Mother Etter’s Signs and Wonders book. This was right before I invited Becca Greenwood. During that visit I also gave Becca a copy of the book.

I’ve been blessed ever since I got saved, in believing all of God’s Word, in healing, and all the promises of God. That’s why I guess I had to leave that first church, because I believe that it’s all for today. And as a side note, I haven’t been to a doctor since receiving the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, Praise His name, Jesus! But it’s sad in a way that our family history wasn’t handed down to us, my grandpa Rupert, my mom’s dad died in 1963 when he was 53, I was 3. Maria was his great grandmother. My mom died when she was only 50 years old. However, I have been sharing with my three kids about their great… grandmother, so they can draw from their inheritance.

In May, 2013 the Lord had me start a Facebook page all about Maria Woodworth Etter to tell the old, old stories and stir up faith to believe again that God wants to do GREAT signs and wonders today! Every day I post on here stories of her life. Since doing that I’ve learned so much and have had the chance to go around different churches and share about her.

God wants so much in these last days, a people that he can use like Maria, Smith Wigglesworth, John G. Lake, etc... But he wants a many of Maria’s, many of Smith’s, many John’s, many, of you with that type of anointing and greater, an end time army to do the greater works. It’s coming, a mighty visitation from God once again, get us ready Lord!

We thought it would be fun to share a little about the team and our journey to ministry. So we will start with Jack and how he found out about his Great, Great, Great Grandmother - Maria Woodworth-Etter,

So here goes:

Neither me, nor our family had ever heard of Maria Woodworth until 1975 when my cousin; Tom, was looking up our family history and came upon her. He asked his mom; my Aunt Mary, but she knew very little about her. Both Tom and Aunt Mary received Jesus as Savior because of all of this research and getting to talking to people who were in her meetings.

Somewhere in this time period, Harrison House publishing company asked my Aunt if they could republish the “Signs and Wonder” book. She agreed and we now have “Signs and Wonder” available for us to read today! I would like to note that the family doesn’t receive any royalties from the book, Aunt Mary just wanted people to hear the old, old stories of her Great, Great Grandmother.

When the book got reprinted and published in 1980 my Aunt Mary gave her sister, my Mom a copy of this book told her all about Mother Etter. My Mom wasn’t interested in it and gave it to me. I got saved a few months before I turned 22, (1982) and I started going to a Baptist church. So I took the book to the Baptist church and showed them and they said that women aren’t preachers, so it sat on my book shelf for 2 years. It wasn’t until I received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit in 1984 and left the Baptist church and started going to a Charismatic Church that I showed anyone else the book. When I showed them, they knew all about her.
More to come on the next post...
