A little private...but in need of prayer

The following is a dream that I had October 25, 2006.

10/25/06 (Wednesday) It was completely black except for a spotlight area in front of me. A Latino man stepped from the darkness into the light and said in a Spanish accent, “Matt, you’re being summoned to California.” Then he stepped backwards back into the darkness.
I believe this is a dream from the Lord, and so for over a year now I have steadily prayed into this dream. I have prayed for understanding, discernment and timing. I has felt like nothing less than a Macedonian Man call.

And so in an interesting twist one of my former staff is now working full time for Metanoia Films. That’s the production company responsible for the amazing film “Bella” that has startled Hollywood and the nation. On January 25 Lou Engle and I are meeting with Eduardo Verastegui, the star of the film, and Leo Severino, the producer, in L.A. I’m asking the Lord this question–Is Eduardo the man from my dream? The dream was very distinct in that the Latino man stepped into the spotlight. I had not thought of it this way for the last year, but that is usually how you describe an actor that has found success; they “step into the spotlight.”

Well, I’m sure there are plenty of readers out there that will think I’m nuts for thinking this way. I’m sure plenty will laugh thinking I ate pizza too late in the evening on October 24. But I’m hoping there are also plenty out there that will take this as serious as I do and pray for the will of the Lord to be released. Please pray for this meeting, me, Eduardo, Leo, Lou and the Latino community. Pray for God to raise up leaders from the Latino community to turn America back to God, morality and family.

Furthermore, a month after I had that dream the Washington Post published this article on 11/30/06. What’s interesting is that I never saw the article. It’s almost like God kept it from me because how else do you end up on the front page of the Post and not know about it? This was just given to me a few weeks ago which has served to bring confirmation and validity to my prayers of the last year. It has also served as a signpost for timing by being injected into this current moment. C’mon!

Matt that is amazing! Is that Monica's picture on the Post?
I'd never thought of Eduardo being the Latino man but it all seems to fit! wow
I don't think I'll be making it down for that conference but I pray you will have a divine encounter!

simply awesome Matt. Will be praying for revelation for you in this. I don't know how often you journal your dreams, and how often you have them... but you should share them more often.

Matt, be assured of my prayers for this! What an amazing dream....and opportunity. You know I check your blog at least once a week. I saw Eduardo's interview on the Christian TV station when I was channel surfing and was blown away. Can't wait to hear more on this!
alive & loud under the radar,
