Halo was birthed in March 1997. While attending a funeral in Washington, DC, Marian Braxton – the founder was approached by a young man. The man told her he was planning to attend that church the following Sunday. Her response was “Praise the Lord.” The young man then asked if it was necessary to dress up to attend church services. She replied “You can come to Jesus just as you are.” His next comment was, “I haven’t been to church in eleven years.” Her response was “Jesus is waiting on you, come unto Jesus.” When Marian entered the church, she looked up at the ceiling and across the beams in front of the church was a verse. “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and the Holy Ghost.”
She read the scripture but the only word she could see was “GO.” She knew that the Lord was telling her it was time to take the message to the streets. The Lord spoke to her that the harvest was ready and now was the time for the laborers to go out. The need was so great. She knew this would be a massive undertaking, but when she remembered that Jesus took the time to go all the way to Calvary’s cross for her, and without his sacrifice there would be no salvation. For that reason, she could not push the vision aside. The very next day, as she sat at work, she reached into her desk drawer to fill out a form. The form would advise her employer of her intent to start a magazine, although at the time she was referring to the material as a newsletter. As she pulled the blank form from her desk drawer, she noticed a form that she had completed the year before with basically the same information on it. The only exception was at that time she did not have the name of the magazine nor the full concept of the venture, but now she fully understood the vision because it was the appointed time.
So as instructed in the book of Habakkuk 2:2. She wrote the vision down and at the appointed time, she begun to run with the vision. She remembered also that spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ is her mission in life. This Outreach Ministry will extend her reach. Everyone will be able to help by submitting articles and testimonies that encourage, support and motivate others.
There are many out there that are going through the same test that you may have just come out of. By sharing your testimony, you give hope.
Halo ask that each of you pray and seek God’s direction as to what part you can play in this Outreach Ministry. The time is now! We must rise up and go forth with a renewed
mind, body, and spirit. We must stand as never before. We must step forward and boldly proclaim that Jesus Christ Is Lord!
Can we count on you? Anyone that is living has a testimony. Surely God has brought each of us through something, or kept us from something. Many of us have had miracles in our lives and the world needs to know that God is a healer, a deliverer, a lawyer, a doctor, in short; they need to know that what they need, “God’s got it.”
Habakkuk 2:2 “…and the Lord answered me and said, “write the vision, and make it plain upon tables that he may run that readeth it.”
Habakkuk 2:3 “…for the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie; though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
