Here's a quick summary of the top stories on charismanews.com:
Documents obtained by Charisma News reveal that Carman World Outreach, the ministry of deceased Christian singer Carman Licciardello, known throughout his ministry as "Carman," recently filed suit in Nevada to restrain his estate's representative from forcibly seizing control of the ministry and its assets. CWO is the nonprofit the singer created to record, sell, promote and manage his music and tours.
CWO's claim cites multiple examples of the estate's representative interfering with ministry matters, interests and assets.
According to the court filing, the defendant has attempted to obtain the ministry's governing documents and material assets owned by CWO, including a recreational vehicle. The representative later "hijacked C.W.O. social media accounts" including Facebook, costing the ministry at least $1,800 per week in lost revenue and over 2,500 social media followers, according to court documents. The representative later attempted to take control of over $53,000 raised through a GoFundMe account set up by CWO to support staff after the singer's Feb. 16 death at age 65 after hernia surgery, not long before he was to begin a 60-city tour.
In many decades of pastoral ministry and writing for the Lord, R.T. Kendall knows a little bit about divine appointment and delivering prayer at just the right time. Recently, the tables were turned, and a pastor friend of a friend began randomly praying for Kendall without knowing his situation.
The 86-year-old Kendall and his wife, Louise, both contracted COVID-19, and Kendall said he received a text from his friend saying the pastor was praying for him in the spirit.
"As this man was praying for me, I felt a burden," Kendall says. "I received a text from my friend asking me, 'Are you OK?' My wife and I have gone through COVID. Several days ago we tested positive. So him praying for us could not have been more timely.
"I wouldn't be telling anyone this if it weren't for the fact that it's over. We're fine, and we came through it. It is so wonderful that people pray for others. It was something I rejoiced in, and I wanted to share it with everyone. Who knows who you might be directed to pray for? Just wait before the Lord and see who comes to your mind."
Nashville-based helicopter pilot Joel Boyers had just finished helping his fiancee earn her pilot's license on Saturday morning, and they were heading home to celebrate, when he received a frantic call from a woman in Pennsylvania. Her brother's home in Waverly, Tennessee, was underwater and he was trapped on a roof with his daughters. Could Boyers help?
"I thought, 'How would I feel if I told her I'm not even going to try?'" he said in a Thursday interview. "She just so happened to call the right person, because I'm the only person crazy enough to even try to do that."
The weather was terrible and Boyers had to contend with hills and high-voltage power lines on the way to Waverly, a small city about 60 miles (96 kilometers) west of Nashville. Just before reaching the town, he set down in a field to get his bearings and realized the internet was down, making it impossible to pinpoint the house he was looking for. He flew on anyway.
