Plowing Before the Planter
Twenty-one intercessors from six different states, converged on Missoula, Montana this past weekend to plow in prayer before church planters, Cory and Susanna Gangle in prayer. From the opening prayer, until the final word, God’s power and anointing was present. Lives were changed, strongholds were broken, and the enemy’s territory was lessened in Missoula. Four received the Holy Ghost and one was baptized in the service on Sunday following the prayer walks.
Quotes from intercessors who attended:
What a humbling, awesome, powerful experience. Words cannot express the appreciation for all who sacrificed their time and finances to come and to God for meeting us and being so good. Thank you World Network of Prayer and North American Missions for your vision and burden. This will be a landmark for us and for Missoula.

The first full launch of “Plowing Before the Planter” event was phenomenal. Lisa Marshall was so in tune with the moving of the Spirit as her gentle spirit lead the event. We prayed, interceded, travailed, shared visions, and heard from God. There was a Spirit of unity that emminated in every session. The sweet aroma of His love was overwhelming. We plowed with prayer and fasting, and God gave the increase. Bondages were broken and souls were delivered.
~ Teresa Hogue, Rocky Mountain District Prayer Coordinator
In Missoula, we spent two days of prayer walking, prayer strategizing, focused prayer at the Missoula church (Rocky Mountain Worship Center), and personally ministering to Pastor and Sister Gangle. It was prophesied God would send the spoils of Egypt to the church there in Missoula. God’s divine, merciful, healing hand worked through the prayer team in a spectacular way. We rejoice for the four filled with the Holy Ghost on Sunday.

During the three days of PBTP, the Lord grew me as well as all of us at truly an astounding rate. A tremendously positive investment has been placed in the Missoula church, and will certainly affect the Rocky Mountain District as well. The two pastors that were there from the district were greatly excited and encouraged. It seemed like we, as a team, meshed together so completely that nothing could stand in the way of many wonderful things happening in the kingdom of God!! PBTP participant, Don Rogers preaching was EXACTLY what was needed for the tremendous move of God that happened Sunday morning. Any “Montana resistance” to submission to God and His Word literally melted away as Brother Rogers preached. Every obstacle was overcome and removed and besides the four that received the baptism of the Holy Ghost, many others found new ground to walk closer to, and with The Lord. I’m grateful for the godly leadership that Sister Marshall gave us, enabling the entire effort to move under the leadership of the Holy Ghost. Sorry, but I just cannot think of any suggestions to improve, except the reminder to us all to pray and seek The Lord’s guidance for future “Plowing Before The Planter” events.

This weekend was an amazing experience that I will never forget. The unity was about as tight as you can get. It is awesome to me how a diverse group of people from all over the United States can come together with one heart, one mind and one purpose. Then to watch God mold them into a cohesive unit, was just incredible. I believe great things are in store for Missoula and the entire Rocky Mountain district. I am so honored and humbled to have been a part of it.

While we were going to help plow the field along side the Gangles, I left with my heart and soul renewed. I don’t know when I have ever been involved with such a mighty group of prayer warriors as were dispatched to Missoula; I was humbled to be a part of this pioneer project.

PBTP Missoula Montana: It was obvious from the first united prayer that this was a divine moment. l don’t think that I have ever experienced such perfect unity. What prevailed throughout the weekend was truly Apostolic “one mind and one accord”. The results of this “plowing” mission were immediate and long-reaching. Pastor Cory Gangles’ God given vision was strengthened and encouraged, local church members were refreshed and received tools to help the vision continue, and four people received the baptism of the Holy Ghost in a powerful service on Sunday. The spiritual atmosphere in Missoula and the Rocky Mountain District is altered forever, and so are we.
