Adventures in Wales

A blog series by Janet Mueller

Nameless and Faceless at the Airport

Never in our wildest imaginations could we have dreamt what lie ahead of us as we innocently strolled into the Fort Wayne International Airport on that June day.  Connected by our common call and community life at Heartland Church in Fort Wayne, Indiana, our team of...

Father’s Day at the Cardiff Vineyard

After our extended flight to Wales, we all welcomed a nap at our lodging place, the Ebenezer House at Hebron Hall Christian Centre in the small village of Dinas Powys, some four miles southwest of Cardiff.  Ebenezer House was perfect for our group as it contained...

The Well is Open

We could not believe our good fortune on this beautiful June morning, as we laughed and cried, splashed water, and playfully poured it over one another.  The well was open, and we were some of its first enthusiastic visitors in a location where the past, present, and...

Moriah Chapel, Not Forgotten

Perhaps one of our most anticipated stops was Moriah Chapel in Loughor, known as the birthplace of the great Welsh Revival of 1904-1905.  Over the course of the past 111 years, thousands have made Moriah Chapel a place of pilgrimage, and now Team Heartland would tour...

An Unplanned Visit to Tabor Chapel

We were fortunate to have David Pike, a noted historian of the Welsh Revivals, as a tour guide for part of our trip.  He was a gold mine of knowledge as well as of the Holy Spirit!  He took us to what is commonly called “The Valleys” in South Wales.  These are where...

A Hidden Revivalist

She had a regal look about her with her dark hair swept up in a chic bun and a long, colorful scarf draped over her narrow shoulders.  She carried herself with dignity, poise, and confidence yet there was a humbleness about her.  Simply and mysteriously, she slipped...

Pits and Mountaintops

Is it possible to experience within the course of one day, a microcosm of an entire lifetime of walking with God?  That is what seemingly occurred on Tuesday, June 23, 2015.  From the depths of the earth at the Big Pit National Coal Museum in Blaenavon to the heights...

One Good Choice at a Time

Have you ever, as a parent, been blessed by the Holy Spirit’s guidance in a teachable moment with your child? I have been amazed so many times by His gentle guidance, His wise answers, and His perfect timing in these sorts of situations with my children. The other...

“Rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness” Philippians 2:7 NIV. When I was laid up with a fractured wrist, there were some things I simply could not do. So I called a friend, who came and cleaned my house...

Every Roll of the Dice

Every Roll of the Dice

“We may throw the dice, but the LORD determines how they fall.” Proverbs 16:33 NLT I have a lot of dice. That picture above is my current dice hoard. Since I design games, I just keep building my collection so I always have whatever dice I need for the game I want to...

Joseph’s Story

Joseph’s Story

This certainly is not what I’d planned! To be entrusted with this momentous charge has brought me to my knees. I’m a carpenter: great at building and repairing or handling problems and figuring out logical solutions. But as I’ve realized the weight of the...

Transformational Tears

Transformational Tears

Facing the terminal diagnosis of our unborn son, I learned what it meant to cry. Don’t get me wrong, I had cried before, but never like this. This was different. This cry was deep from within my soul – words that I didn’t know how to express, prayers I couldn’t pray,...

In the Stillness of the Night

In the Stillness of the Night

"That night is forever etched in our minds. Everything was so eerily still and quiet…the engine had shut off, the lights were out, and all four of you were silent. Then Jane, your dad, and you began to stir…you were all in so much pain.” Those words from my eldest...

Behold!

“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Luke 10:19 NKJV“I’m having trouble believing it’s true, LORD. I’m sorry. I know You don’t lie. But really!...

Unshakeable

Unshakeable

Before Jesus warns of the situations coming in the last days in Matthew 24:4-14, He says, "Take heed no one deceives you."  He also says of these trying times, "See that you are not troubled."  Troubled can also be translated as shaken.  We are to remain steadfast and...
