Raising Up Spiritual Sons & Daughters
The Birth of a Battalion...
The Beginning of WWW in the US . . .
Greetings to you in the name of our wonderful Savior, Yeshua Ha Moshiach! My name is Lisa Bourland. I am the co-founder and co-director of The Father's House in Henderson, KY. The Lord has been so good to us. He has allowed The Father's House, His house, to care for His orphaned children around the world. He has even given us a house of prayer in Bethlehem, the city where our Messiah was born. In August of 2006, the Lord supernaturally positioned me to speak at a conference in the African country of Zimbabwe. It was in the small city of Masvingo that I encountered a woman of God named Vicky Mpofu. I use the word "encountered" because I knew the first time that I saw her, that we were being connected by the Spirit. I knew that this connection was for something much larger than either of us could imagine at that moment. I knew that we were both small women, in a small world, serving a big God! Pastor Vicky invited me to return to Zimbabwe in November of that year to minister at a womens' group that she founded called WWW: Women, Weapons of Warfare. I felt the presence of the Holy Spirit, and I accepted with great anticipation of what our Father was knitting together. The conference in Harare, the capital city of Zimbabwe, was amazingly anointed by God. It was during this time that the Lord told me that Pastor Vicky would be a spiritual mother to me, and that He would use her to pour many deep things of the Kingdom into my heart. When I was in Israel the next January, the Holy Spirit started speaking to me about Women, Weapons of Warfare. I started seeing thousands of women. Our Father was telling me that He would gather these women together and that He would give me a revelation of how to form WWW in the United States, and in other countries where the Lord leads me to minister. He revealed to me that if I would submit myself and these women under the spiritual leadership of Pastor Vicky that He would raise up an international army of mighty warriors, and together we would enter into a realm of intercession that would change nations. He showed me that we were to pray over our natural sons and daughters and then we were to ask Him to give us spiritual sons and daughters. He said that together, we would raise up these sons and daughters to become spiritual mothers and fathers. This so excited my spirit! When I returned home from Israel, I invited a small group of intercessors to meet together at The Father's House. I shared with them the vision that the Lord had given me about Women, Weapons of Warfare. The fire of the Holy Spirit ignited that vision and it spread like wildfire. WWW was officially in the birth canal in the USA. Since that time, it has grown to include many cities in several nations. We communicate prayers on a daily basis through a mail group on the internet and we have conferences to bring the sisters together. Together we have seen amazing answers to prayer, and it is so exciting to see the report of the Lord save lives, heal marriages, bring deliverance, and so much more. He does exceedingly and abundantly more than we could ever imagine!

The Beginning of WWW in Zimbabwe . . .
Pastor Vicky Mpofu
I greet you in the wonderful name of our Lord and our Savior, Jesus Christ. My name is Vicky Mpofu. In the year 1998, I answered to the call of God to become a minister of the Gospel, and I planted a church under the supervision of Dr. Goodwill Shana. In the same year, in November of 1998, Pastor Shana handed to me a Christian magazine in which was a prophetic word which had been given by Cindy Jacobs while she was ministering in Guatemala City. This prophetic word was concerning the nation of Zimbabwe. The Lord was speaking through her that in Zimbabwe there would be an army of women raised to pray and to cover the nation with a net of prayer. There was a tug on my spirit as I read this, but at that time, it seemed so far from me because I was just beginning as a pastor. As time went on, in 2002, I began to lose interest in pastoring a church. I took three days to pray and seek God for my next level. It was then that I felt impressed upon my heart to take up that prophetic word again and read it. And as I read it, I heard the Holy Spirit say to me "It is time, my daughter, for you to raise me an army of women that will pray and intercede for the nations of the world." As I took on this responsibility, my immediate response was that Zimbabwe was in such situations as required a lot of prayer, so I though it was just for Zimbabwe. But when He gave me the name, He said that it was Women, Weapons of Warfare International. I had no idea how God would take this ministry to the nations. The ministry was launched in March of 2003, and in January 2004, we were invited to start a group in South Africa. We now also have a group in London, and one in Bethlehem, as well as many in the United States and seven in Zimbabwe. The one thing I know for sure is that in this season, there is a special grace on women to minister the Gospel. And my invitation to all of us as women is to arise and take up the challenge, because God, in this season, is anointing His sons who are resident in the female body to minister the gospel and pray. So I invite you to join what God is doing in this season!
