The ministry of Visitors from the Past started in 1992 when Luella accepted a call from God to bring His word to life dramatically through sacred portrayals of women of faith and Biblical storytelling. After ten years and many thousands of miles, in 2012 God answered the cry of Luella’s heart to have her husband Jim join in full-time ministry with her. The prayer they Offer is “Here we are Lord. Send us”
Jim and Luella are available for ministry whenever and wherever their message is needed and/or wanted. They will travel anywhere in the United States if they are invited. Their ministry is at home in a large variety of settings from Sunday morning worship to church picnics to summer VBS programs. They are also at home in any denominational setting where the gospel of Jesus Christ is welcome. Visitors from the Past are equally comfortable doing programs for community groups. They do remind the group that their message is unapologetically Christian.
The cost to have for a ministry event is to cover our expenses(mileage at the federal rate and overnight accommodations if needed)and a love offering received at the end of their ministry time together. If there is extensive travel involved we ask that the host church seek additional ministry opportunities for us in order to make the cost to any one church affordable.
When you are planning a ministry event ,Jim & Luella will discuss with you the details of the ministry to confirm exactly what your church is hoping for. They also ask that you invite your prayer warriors to lift the event in prayer well before the date.
The one thing that this ministry needs most is prayer. This work is the Lord’s and will only continue as long as those who believe in it lift it constantly before the Father.
