For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. Colossians 1:9
David Wilkerson was a man I looked up to and admired his spirit and his zeal for the gospel of Jesus Christ, Pastor of Times Square Church, founder of Teen Challenge and author of numerous books such as The Cross and the Switchblade, he was a true prophet and man of God!
After a tour one day through the ministry of Teen Challenge of Ft. Worth, an adult women's program I was inspired to go into residential ministry. Our first attempt was a home for un-wed mothers where I gained insight, wisdom and knowledge of what my true destiny was and the desire God was burning in my heart! We worked with unwed mothers and saw many beautiful babies who would have otherwise been murdered through abortion and we took several women from Teen Challenge when the Directors paid me a visit at the farm.
The two Directors told me they liked what they saw with our work with the women they had sent us and asked me to become their induction center. Praise God, I said, whats an induction center? They then proceeded to tell me that I would take everyone who came into their program, get them saved, delivered and filled with the Spirit and then send them downtown to finish the one year program in two months! Having much more zeal than wisdom I said, "Sure no problem!"
That you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. Colossians 1:10
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
