A Redeemed Pirate's Life For Me!
Red Letter Ministries was birthed in prayer in the spring of 2006. It was Brandon's senior year at North Central University, located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, when the 24 year old got so desperate for God that he began praying 8 hours a day. He then began consistently hearing the inner-audible voice of God. The Holy Spirit specifically told him, "Call your ministry the Red Letter Ministry." Brandon obeyed and launched out a very grassroots inner-city missions work. For the first sixteen months of full-time ministry Brandon ministered mostly at Hard Times Cafe(1821 Riverside Ave, Mpls) to gang members, punks, hippies, warlocks, and cultists. "I have been carjacked twice, shot at once, stabbed at, I've been in the middle of several gang fights, I've been inside mass riots, but we are destroying tons of the devil's work," Brandon testifies. "I have seen healings and miracles of every imaginable sort to every imaginable type of person." We have been seeing a consistent increase of glory causing more healings and supernatural signs and wonders to occur. In November of 2007 the glory began to increase much more dramatically.
We are blissed with excitement for the Lord's creative renaissance in our generation! The drunken glory is restoring the United States of America to her heavenly image. This great nation will fulfill her destiny in the earth for King Jesus by the wine press of the Almighty, and we are honored and humbled to play our part in it. Grace and peace be yours in abundance from Red Letter Ministries!
