Keep our focus on God, Eyes set toward Eternity, to be Kingdom minded through the mind of Christ.




  “Your steps formed a highway through the seas with footprints on a pathway no one even knew was there. You led your people forward by your loving hand, blessed by the leadership of Moses and Aaron.”  Ps. 77:19, 20. (TPT)


Dear Partners and Prayer Warriors,


Just after I had finished reading the above scripture, God gave to me this vision:


 I was standing at the Red Sea, just as if I were one of the Israelites of long ago. The Lord spoke and said the sea represented adversity in this life.  He then parted the water, just as He did in scripture, and I could see His footprints on the sea bed.  I began walking forward, placing my steps in His footprints. I could see the water on both sides and knew that I was walking through adversity but also, on Holy ground. I was being baptized by Living Water as I passed through to the other side. I began to Thank God for parting my “Red Sea” moments in this life, for seeing me, placing my steps in His, and making a way for me. I began to relax because I knew I had just been baptized for something else, something more, possibly something bigger! Also, as I walked through those parted waters, I knew I was not alone. Just as He had prepared the way before me, He was also with me as my feet slipped into His steps. This is where the vision stopped.


I began thinking about this past year and how 2020 was a lot like passing through the Red Sea. It was a year of huge adversity – spirit, soul, and body! We had to have His “steps that formed a highway through the seas with footprints on a pathway no one even knew was there,” to get through all of last year. Even though the adversities were enemy filled by a spirit of fear, we His children were walking in His footprints that He prepared ahead of time for us and we have all gone through the same baptism as in the vision for something more and possibly bigger.



Our prayer declaration for the year 2021 is this:

We stand in faith that the pandemic slows and good, solid, and viable medicine is available that does not put us at risk. We believe that good will overcome evil and evil will turn on itself because that is the promise of God.  We hope each and every one of us can respect the office of the presidency regardless of our thoughts about the human who sits in that position. We pray that our focus stay on the ONE TRUE GOD who does not change and whose promises are from everlasting to everlasting.  We speak health to our physical bodies and healing to our country.  And we ask all of this in the name of Jesus. Amen.


Because of partners and prayer warriors like you, Loving People Enough Ministries is very busy! We stay active in counseling, ministering, teaching and discipleship, whether it is in an office, a chapel or the highways/ byways, and when God allows, we will also look forward to being back on the mission field.  The goal of Loving People Enough Ministries is to meet people right where they are and to be the servants God has called us to be and where He has called us to go. Thank you very much for your continued support in partnering with us for 2021.  We cannot do this without you and we would not want to. You are priceless to us and we pray for you also! May your 2021 be full of blessing and always walking in His footprint. We love you all!


Love and Blessings,

Pastors Doug & Lisa Barber
