When Philip Cameron comes to the lectern and starts by saying “my God specializes in things that people say are impossible” you know you’re about to have a special time in the pretense of the Lord.
Philip shared with Jim Bakker Show partners and friends that we cannot forget “God’s permanent address is Wit’s End Corner. God starts when you have come to the end of yourself.” He reminded everyone that we need to surrender to God at the beginning rather than try to do things under our own power because His way is always better, higher and provided for before we even know there is an issue.
Philip made a statement that shocked some in attendance when he said that America is the most spoiled country in the world. However, he explained the reason is that Americans don’t appreciate the blessings that God has poured out upon them. Philip said that unthankfulness is a sign of the times and that a church becomes unthankful because they lose their fire.
“The church is not on fire because it doesn’t have a vision anymore,” he said.
He went on to share about Stella’s Voice and their home in Moldova that had a neighbor who was doing all she could to undermine the world of the Lord. She would stand on her porch and curse at the girls and file repeated lawsuits to try and shut the home.
“But God,” Philip said, “can take your greatest opposition and turn it into an incredible opportunity.”
The woman came to Philip and the staff of Stella’s Voice and said she hated them. Then she asked them to buy her home at a reasonable price so she could get away from them.
And at the very same time, Stella’s Voice was looking for a home for girls who have graduated school but needed a place to go while they get a job and start a career. The Lord provided a huge open door!
It was a powerfully hard night on Grace Street as Philip Cameron and the girls from Stella’s Voice presented testimonies that forced everyone to confront the reality of human trafficking and orphans in Moldova.
One of the girls, Veronica, shared her testimony in Romanian while one of her Stella’s Voice sisters translated for those in attendance. Her tears needed no translation as they melted hearts of those who saw the pain that is inflicted upon a young girl made to feel worthless by those who should love her the most.
By the end of her story, she shared the way Jesus transformed her and how appreciative she was of those who have welcomed her. Continue reading
Today’s taping of the Jim Bakker Show featured a special moment between Pastor Jim, Lori and those in attendance. Philip Cameron arranged for a Skype call between everyone on Grace Street and the girls of Stella’s House in Moldova. But that was just the start of a moving day of stories and testimony.
In addition, Philip Cameron shared the story of his life and how there was a generational curse on the family for alcohol. He said his family was known for being the drunks laying in the gutter on Mondays after drinking all weekend. Then his family came to Jesus and it completely turned the family’s life around.
“[My father] became an absolute lunatic for Jesus!” Philip said. Continue reading
The second night of the Fourth of July celebration at Morningside came with a healthy dose of reality, power and encouragement. Philip Cameron and the girls from Stella’s House not only encouraged the audience with the miracles happening in Moldova but challenged them to look deeper within themselves and the ways that God works in their lives.
The evening opened with a surprise when Lori Bakker came out with Philip Cameron to make the formal introduction. Lori shared her passion for the world of Philip and Stella’s Voice, saying there is “not a greater ministry in my personal opinion on the face of the Earth.” Continue reading
