To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision: (Acts 26:18,19)
The Night Vision. On March 4th I had a night vision. In the dream I was in a rural area of America. People were sitting in folding chairs, dressed in casual clothes. There were men, women, and children. I heard Terry Mai singing. I then saw Terry Mai in a black suit and moved toward him to speak to him but he kept moving away from me. I called out to him, “Terry, we’ve got to do this once a month,” but he wouldn’t stop to listen to me. Then off to my right a short distance away another man in a black suit was standing and just watching us. I continued moving toward Terry to talk to him but he wouldn’t wait. Finally that part was over, but then I appeared at a courthouse building of a rural area that had eagles on each corner. In a day or two after the vision I got more understanding that the Water of Life Boys should minister along with Terry Mai’s music to people in rural America, or as we say “small town USA.”
Meetings in Navo. It wasn’t long, just a couple months later in May, that God opened up a place to worship Him in the rural area of Denton Texas. We started conducting a monthly meeting at Navo, where we worshipped God outside in the country, sitting on lawn chairs and such. We met there once a month to worship God until September.

Wilt Thou Tax the Righteous? Kathie D and I had just returned home from a meeting in Broken Arrow on the 13th of March. Right after getting to the house we both started into hard praying for about forty-five minutes, then I went on into intercession. I told Kathie this has got to do with the health care bill now in congress. The burden in my heart literally expanded the walls of my abdomen and my chest. I started interceding as Abraham did with the Lord and the two angels following their lunch together, in Genesis 18:
17 And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do;
18 Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?
19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him
20 And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;
21 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.
22 And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD.
23 And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?
24 Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein?
25 That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?
I have always been impressed that Jesus did not listen to hearsay, but He made a firsthand inspection of the situation before He would judge it. That I know He has done with me for all these years I have served him.
I begin to pray as Abraham prayed; it was powerful prayer of faith. “Wilt thou judge the righteous from the wicked? That be far from thee Lord!” That’s what I prayed, and then my prayer changed, “Lord wilt thou tax the righteous to reward the wicked? That be far from thee Lord! Shall not the judge of the whole earth do right?”
I knew I had a prayer from God and I am still praying it.
This is a Christian Nation. April was the first time we read from the pulpit the unanimous opinion of the Supreme Court of the United States in Church of the Holy Trinity vs. Untied States, February 1892, that this is a Christian nation. (The United States is a Christian Nation: http://doyledavidsonwol.blogspot.com/2016/01/supreme-court-opinion-united-states-is.html) That decision has not been overturned.
Where Two or Three are Gathered. Kathie D and I had been praying together in the fellowship hall for a while. One day the Lord directed me to ask Terre Brown to join us in prayer. She joined us on May 15th. God spoke the words to me of Matthew 18:20,
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
I knew God was saying when He spoke that to me His church was beginning to assemble in the Fellowship Hall to pray. Today it has expanded to include David Kaspareit, Casey and Ashley Alvis, Kathy Mai, Candace Mai, Ashley Mai, Terre Brown, Kathie D and myself. It is continuing to enlarge.
Meeting with WillowCreek Fellowship. Early in June the pastor of WillowCreek Fellowship, Roy Frady, met with me and requested that I come teach them, as he stated it, “I want what you have.” Our first meeting was on June 16th. Roy Frady, Paul Castell, my wife Kathie D, and I meet once a week to fellowship, share and work through those things that pertain to the gospel and our Lord Jesus.
Challenging Discipleship. God directed me to begin challenging the spirit of the Discipleship Movement in July. I discovered the root of that spirit came out of the Catholic Church, a spirit I had been confronting for several years. (Challenging the spirit of the Discipleship Movement: http://doyledavidsonwol.blogspot.com/2015/11/challenging-spirit-of-discipleship.html)
Faith Temple. God instructed me to bring Robin Oberst in to join our prayer group in August. After ministering to Robin, God had me bless John and Carol Ferguson for more than an hour and a half in a great conflict with a headache. I started overcoming the witchcraft associated with Faith Temple that day.
Books by Doyle Davidson. God led us to bring the books written in 1990 back out to the public. The books; Jesus Did the Father’s Will, He Rose Again, The Gospel is Always a Blessing, Jesus on the Cross, God’s Plan of Reconciliation, and What is the Gospel were changed into a digital format and made available on the website for anyone to read and download.
Baptized for the Dead. God began ministering to me in December the words spoken by Paul in I Corinthians 15:29;
Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? Why are they then baptized for the dead?
He began speaking to me about baptizing in the name of Jesus, and being baptized for our ancestors. We began baptizing in this manner on the 14th of December and will continue to as God directs.
David Kaspareit, a trustee of Water of Life Church, Plano, Inc. was ordained as a minister of the gospel in January.
Casey Alvis was ordained as minister of the gospel in December and appointed as a trustee.
Building improvements included a new Air Conditioner Unit for the Sanctuary in August.
