After day 100, the ministry team with Fresh Fire definitely needed some R & R. As the Florida Revival in Lakeland continues, Todd Bentley has taken some time off. Roy Fields has also had powerful stand-ins.
Andrew Phillips and Jillian Roberts led worship Thursday at the morning service at Ignited Church. Then, they both assisted during the evening service. From there, worship leader Jillian Roberts went on to lead worship at the morning service.
You can check out some of the worship here. (Go to this link. Then select July 10th.) Please be praying for the ministry team at Fresh Fire to be renewed in Christ, as well as for direction that the revival should take.
ALSO, as a note, revival has begun in the local area as well. At City Church of Tampa in Brandon, Florida, just a half-hour drive from Lakeland, revival has begun. Pastor Kent Davis brought in Terry Kruse and there has been powerful visitation from God. A totally different flavor of revival from that in Lakeland, FL, the revival at City Church of Tampa has been profound with Financial Breakthroughs, Spiritualy Breakthroughs and so much more.
The services are just Thursdays and Sundays for now, but plan to extend. Check back for more!

Many people in the Body have raised many questions about the validity of the revival going on in Lakeland, Florida. Many opinions are flying, yet few people are openly interacting about the topics in question. Perhaps it is time to handle some of these questions directly.
The following is a letter from Todd Bentley and the Fresh Fire team, “Bringing Biblical Light to Your Questions about the Lakeland Outpouring & Todd Bentley”
It answers many of the critiques of the revival.

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter and for hearing my heart on some of the issues that seems to be causing division and some confusion in the Body of Christ. Throughout the Old and New Testaments and in every age following, as far as I can determine, the Lord has given His people dreams and visions, signs and wonders, heavenly encounters and divine supernatural experiences that, for the most part, we cannot understand with our intellect. In the spiritual realm, God isn’t limited by our thinking!…

Here are the updates from the Florida Revival Latest News:
- The Lakeland Ledger finally posted a front-page article in the Sunday edition of the local papers. The headline was “a working man’s revival.” Todd noted it from stage and the stadium audience roared! Read the article on the Ledger here.
- We have the latest and hottest new photos from the event. Check the latest ones here.
- Evangelist Training! Each day this week at Ignited Church at 1:30 pm, the ministry team is teaching people how to witness in the streets. Come to this powerful, free training!
- On Monday Night, the healing anointing was so heavy it was almost unmanageable. The 11th testimony of resurrection from the dead came out, along with multiple people getting out of their wheel chairs. The atmosphere of faith was tangible!
Tonight is expected to be as powerful. Come out if you are in the area. If you aren’t, then get on a plane, drive your car, ride a bike, pogo-stick if you have to!
