The River Mersey flows through Liverpool.

With prayers of thanksgiving and safe travel, Lion’s Light International has launched its first missions trip of 2019 today. The two-member team is expected to land in Manchester, England, and then head to the historic seaport city of Liverpool, where LLI has been invited to share the gospel, disciple believers, teach, and minister to homeless and marginalized people.

You can accompany the team in prayer and financial support as they allow the Holy Spirit and local Christian contacts to guide them throughout the 10-day journey in and around this . As residents of Liverpool —known as Liverpudlians— like people across the United Kingdom brace for the social, political, and economic upheaval brought on by their eventual exit from the European Union, let’s pray that they would be open to the truth spoken in love (Ephesians 4:15).

“[Jesus] is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them” (Hebrews 7:25).

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” -Ephesians 6:12

On the streets of Columbus, Ohio.

CEO and Ambassador of Missions Lori Jéan Medina headed up Lion’s Light International’s first official mission trip to the greater Columbus area of Ohio over the weekend of June 6-8. Organized and hosted by Ashley Little, an Ohio resident and friend of Lori Jéan’s, the trip focused on delivering Biblical truth in a seminar titled “Spiritual Warfare and Deliverance.”

Eleven people attended the “Spiritual Warfare & Deliverance” seminar at a hotel in Dublin, Ohio.

Eleven people attended the roughly 6-hour seminar on Saturday, which was held at a hotel in the Columbus suburb of Dublin. Following the seminar, a woman in attendance who struggled with strong spiritual oppression was set free by the power of the Lord Christ Jesus in a very moving and memorable moment that brought to mind Jesus’ healing touch and forgiving spirit as He ministered throughout Judea and Samaria.

On Saturday evening, as the summer sun gave way to the streetlights of a darkening Columbus, Lori Jéan and a fellow team member walked toward a zone of the state capital notorious for its sex trade. They were joined by a team from Sparrow’s Hope, a ministry that roams the streets –of Columbus, but once a year they travel to India –sharing the Gospel with victims and perpetrators of human trafficking. That very night, one of the prostitutes they spoke with gave her life to Jesus. Later on, the team stood outside of a drug rehab center and prayed with six men.

On Sunday, the team went to the town of Powell to pray with some dear friends facing personal challenges, confirming Lion’s Light International purpose of shining the light of Christ’s love personally, and at times, privately.  As Lion’s Light continues to pray about their next mission trip, the ministry will consider taking up Sparrow’s Hope director’s invitation to join them in India in January 2019.
