Comforted Together with You
For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye
may be established; That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the
mutual faith both of you and me. Romans 1:11,12
The Muskogee Meetings. We held a Dinner and Worship meeting once a
month at the Muskogee Civic Center through August. This was the
perfect place for those that are part of this ministry, from the three Water
of Life Churches to meet, fellowship and worship together. God also
opened up ministering to the Native Americans. Besides the music groups from
Water of Life Ministries; the Water of Life Boys, the Mai Girls, and the Hurley’s,
we welcomed Native American groups from the surrounding area. A local
Barbecue Restaurant supplied our meals.
Finding “God on the Mountain.” In the first week of April, I heard someone
do a song that had ministered to me back in the ninety’s. I said to my wife Kathie,
“There is a family that did this song years ago, see if you can find it for me.”
When Kathie entered typed in what little information we had on the Internet, up
came the very video I had heard. This is how we found the song, “God on the
Mountain” by the McKamey’s. We began introducing this and other songs into
Prayer on Facebook. Friday, April 8th was the first time posted on my Facebook
page, Doyle Davidson, a time in the evening where we played songs, prayed and
believed with listeners to be ministered to. We began with “Adoration” by Water
of Life Boys. Later, we broadcasted worship from our live stream while listeners
joined together in prayer at 9:00 every evening, many “checking in” on Facebook.
Joplin Tornado. Sunday, May 22, beginning at 5:34pm, a devastating tornado hit
the town of Joplin Missouri. 75% of the city was destroyed, 160 lives were lost.
This is a city I grew up not far from and had been preaching the gospel there for
more than sixteen years.
Early the next morning I woke up very sick and weak. I could barely stand. I
spoke to the Lord, “I’ve got to have some help, I need your mercy.” As I talked
with Kathie D I began to overcome. Then, on the news, I heard the video of a
woman, caught in a convenience store as the tornado was approaching. You
could hear many in the store crying, screaming and giving direction, but through it
all you heard her voice first steadily say, “Heavenly Father” and then calmly and
deliberately speak, “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,” over and over as the tornado passed
through. All that were in the convenience store were spared. Her prayer along
with mine provided the strength for me to overcome all my weakness.
Several days later on the 27th I spoke to Curt Hurley about ministering and
assisting in the relief effort to Joplin. Within a few hours Curt had an office and
was distributing hot food on the parking lot of the destroyed high school. The
next day a group of us joined him and we ministered hot food and the gospel to
hundreds in that area.
It was not long after that the Lord directed us to build a house for one of the
victims of the tornado. The Lord led us to a family that their home had been
completely destroyed. God provided the money to begin construction and on June
6th we broke ground.
My Native American Ancestors. On June 27th, after a time of prayer, I told my
wife, Kathie D, the Lord has directed me to look into my paternal grandmother’s
ancestry. The next day as Kathie was researching for me, she found my great
grandmother was a Native American. It encouraged me more that God had
previously directed me to minister to the Native Americans in this country. The
next day we received an email from a relative that just confirmed that finding.
Reading the Word of God. Because of the pressure from spirits I have been
fighting, my sight has been dimmed since 2009. I was watching Fox News on the
evening of September 7th and Kathie D asked me a question about one of the men
being interviewed. She asked me if I really could see his name in print on the
bottom of the screen. I replied, “Why, yes.” We both realized the extent that my
eyes had improved. Kathie then knew how we could adjust the print on a page so
that I was able read again, the first time in over two years. The next day I read
Romans 10, the gospel, on live-stream.
Meeting in Anderson. Along with the meetings at Muskogee, we met with those
that were in Anderson, Missouri for a couple of meetings, joining them in
worshipping with the live broadcast from Plano and fellowshipping with them
