 20/20 VISION

My name is Clinton Kandel. I am one of Leonard’s spiritual sons.  We met when I was a senior in high school, which was back in 2002-2003.  Some highlights of the fruit from him being a spiritual father in my life were to lead me to encounter the presence of God, understand relationship with Jesus, and receive baptism of Holy Spirit! 

Hello kingdom Family,       

Leonard’s ministry has been and always will be connecting people to the heart of Jesus and teaching people to do the same.  Leonard is a genuine and authentic disciple of Jesus and a revivalist! During my senior year in high school there was a small group of men called M.O.F.I.A. I was part of that group and during that time a foundation for my faith and encountering Jesus happened.  That moment in time radically changed the trajectory for my life. 

 I am currently getting equipped for the call on my life of teacher/pastor at a ministry school in Columbus Ohio called Columbus School of Supernatural Ministry… From touching base with other men who were also in the MOFIA group, most of the men are high influence leaders in what they do.  Some are still in Holmes County; some have moved out of state. There is One consistent theme.  the direction of their lives and destiny of their children’s lives was and is touched by Jesus because Leonard said “here am I Lord, send me!”

Recently Leonard and I got in touch to catch up.  He shared some of the highlights of the ministry going on in Texas. The fruit of making heart connections to the Father’s heart is intensifying and getting richer with Leonard’s ministry!  Leonard also shared that he sensed the Lord say Texas is where his “home” will be on this side of heaven. Meaning it’s his place to reside. He is experiencing favor with finances for the everyday needs.  Come on Jesus!!! 

When praying for Leonard I sensed the Lord is going to provide Leonard with a home. I have an impression of what provision looks like. Regardless, I know the Lord is really big and really good!  The impression I had is that funding for the house will come through business(es) that were influenced by Leonard’s ministry in some way shape or form. 

As Leonard’s spiritual son I am asking for you to ask Holy Spirit what your role is… when you were reading about funding and business, if that resonated within you.  Please connect with Leonard about contributing. 

If funding didn’t resonate with you…please be in agreement with the provision of the funds for a home for my PaPa Leonard!        Peace, love and joy to you all, Clinton Kandel 

 Here are some Testimonies of Divine Encounters that the Lord sent my way – Divine Appointments – DA’sHank Hoaglund – Baylor & Alex Barnholdt – Dallas: These guys are friends from college – Alex came to visit Hank. I felt led to join myself to their table. Then Hank shared how his 3 other roommates challenged him that he was not holding them accountable to prayer, questions, and discipleship stuff. To say the least, he certainly appreciated our conversation on discipleship. I then shared some particulars things that they could do on a daily and weekly bases. (Up Date) I received this text from Hank a few hours later: You’re awesome, thanks for being bold in your faith for all these years, very motivating!

Grey & Faith Hoff – Abilene/ Hardin-Simmons University:  I met Faith 10 years ago in Clyde: I was immediately encouraged and prophesied over by them both. The then laid hands on me and prayed for me! They knew that God had sent them on a mission to Fuego.

Jack Ring – Round Rock & Mike Cruz – The Redlands, CA: I felt like I needed to get to Fuego a bit earlier: upon my arrival, there were these two guys doing a Bible study! They were feasting on both the tacos and the Word of God! They were seated in the far back section on the left side of the restaurant.  I then invited myself to their table and asked if I may pray for them? Mike is Jack’s nephew, who going through some life’s challenges and is in need of discipleship. They continued on for a bit. Before they left, we exchanged contact info and pics. As they were leaving, I grabbed Mike by the arm, in doing so, I sensed that his issues were family / marriage stuff. I encouraged him to feel free to contact me at any time. I am excited about keeping in touch with Mike. (Up Date) The next day, once he arrived back in CA, I received this texted message from him: Hi Leonard, thank you for stopping by our table yesterday. As Jack told you, I’m just coming to Christ in earnest. He’s brought me back to him the past couple of months through adversity. My wife has left me and filed for divorce. Because of things I’ve done She’s lost hope. I would ask you to pray for my wife and I. I know there’s hope in Jesus and that he can heal us. Thank you, Leonard. (Up Date) I’ve been seeing God moving in my life and answering prayers. He’s is Good! 

Trey & Tricia Brown – Waco: I felt like that I had a word for him! After I introduced myself, I asked if I may share a word with him? Trey then invited me to set down. I said to them, that the word that I kept getting for him was integrity / you are a man of integrity when others around you are not so. This actually grieves your heart; so, because of the integrity of your heart, it won’t let you do otherwise. I then prayed for them and encouraged them in the journey that God has set before them. At this point, his wife is in tears. They left with hugs and smiles.

Josh & (his wife) Smoot – Utah: This was their 1st time and they were also celebrating their 4th Wedding Anniversary. While they were still in the entry-way, I prayed for them on this their special day. And for this New Year 20/20. I declared the word of the Lord over their lives and family.

Teresa Lankford – West, TX: (Up Date) (She came by Fuego looking for me!) Leonard, my heart was happy today as I was thinking about you and your ministry. I ask God to bless you. Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for Leonard and for his ministry.  I thank you for the management of Fuego’s investment in him, and in the people who come here. Lord, I ask for you to bring people to Leonard who need Jesus and or just need rest and a prayer.  Thank you for the heart, insight and words that you have given him. Continue to speak life through him. Give him what he needs.  Whether it be health, rest, peace, joy, love, security, relationship, financial means or anything else, I ask that you bless him with those things that he needs and his heart desires. Take care of him.  I ask these things in the name of Jesus.  Amen.

Michael Crump – A&M at College Station: I had passed by his booth several times, not sure just what to do. Michael is from Dallas and was in route to College Station. I the joined myself to his table. He is 2nd year at A&M, has 3 other roommates – all of which attends church. As we continue to visit, he soon realized that the last time that they prayed together as roommates was in September of last year; they have lived pretty much in their own world: I encouraged him all the more & prayed for him as well.

Jarred Tate – Corpus Christi: I felt he had been disappointed, shot out of the water, given up on a God idea! As I continued the conversation, he teared up a bit and wanted to know, how did I know to come talk with him? I then encouraged him all the more. He had just got home from serving in our US NAVY, he has a wife and children that are very active in their church. Before he left, I prayed for him and his family. (update) Please also pray for wisdom, discernment and really simply if I should pursue starting a business that I was looking to start last year, but didn’t.

Marcial Samaniego – ACC Waco – Spanish Pastor: I was invited to share my testimony with the Spanish group, (I shared in Spanish) that meets on this Friday night. He is very excited about what God is doing in the Spanish community. This was an amazing time of worship, prayer and most of all, the presence of the Lord.
