Mark and Lisa Malizzi were part of events at the Lakeland Revival!

 

Hey everyone!
Quick update from Lakeland, Florida... and this is just the short version, wait till you look into my eyes and hear the long version!

Lisa was blasted by the Holy Spirit as Todd laid hands on her and all the Moms for Mothers Day. She was shaking all the way back to the hotel like electric was flowing through her. Praise God, now you will have her to deal with as she stands on fire by my side!

For me, All I can say is you may not be ready for what the Holy Spirit has hit me with
because even I am still trying to clear up what just happened in my mind and Spirit. It was later confirmed as Todd spoke and his team prayed for me and downloaded onto me something that is so deep it will take me a while to fully understand the train that just hit me.

It was so incredible to stand in the front at the altar area with 15,000+ members of the Body of Christ on FIRE and lighting up Florida at the Airport! Even our daughter Jessica is starting to show her gifts as she sang and danced around!!

People who have never met before were praying for people and God was moving in a mighty way. Right in the middle of the crowd things where happening and people were being healed!!!

Even in the Heavens signs showed up. An angels wing and an eagle were seen in the clouds. Then a cross appeared in the clouds in a clear sky and stayed that way for about 20 minutes! We were so close to the stage that I yelled at Todd and directed his attention to the sky. Then thousands of people pointed at the cross in the sky! Plus, the Cross in the sky was shown live on GOD TV to 230 countries and millions of people around the world.

Also, we were standing at the event site 6 hours before the event, yes, 6 hours before the event started with other believers who were also drawn there early by the overwhelming presents of God. We were standing there talking about God and all that is happening on a calm, clear day when all of a sudden 4 rows of chairs fell over in the center of the 12,000 chairs in the shape of a huge foot print!!!! We all looked at each other because there was no wind!!! It looked like an Angel had just stepped on them.

Yes, people are getting up out of wheel chairs, blind are seeing, deaf are hearing and thousands of souls are giving their lives to Jesus.

Todd states very clearly that he is very thankful to give all the Glory and Honor to Jesus because he has no power to do anything more that just to speak the words of the Gospel to people and let God be God.

That's the key!, No denomination junk, no programs, no religious spirit... No one cares what church you're from, just that you believe that Jesus is the Christ, died and rose again and is ALIVE today! Praise God!!

I see fruit, lots of it, I see souls coming to the Lord, Thousands of them.
I see Todd giving all the glory to God and Jesus.

All I can say is we came to get some and bring it back! We are coming with a fresh fire of the Holy Spirit and a deeper calling to reach Souls for the Kingdom!

It is time to be bold for the gospel. The time is NOW and I pray that God meets you face to face on that road and that you will no longer follow religion and programs but get hit right in your heart.

We need to get back to what Jesus told us to do: Pray for the Sick, Cast out Demons, Spread the Gospel and help bring in the Harvest for the kingdom.

Our personal programs, plans and vision for this worldly stuff no longer matter!

We need the Mind of Jesus and have Child-like faith.
We need to run after God with ALL our heart, soul, mind, and strength.
We need to believe that God can do what he says he can do.
We need to get out of the boat and walk on water towards Jesus!!!!!!!

Thank you Jesus!! To God be all the Glory!
On fire for God with a Blue Flame!
Mark, Lisa and Jessica

It is with great pleasure that I recommend to you Mark and Lisa Malizzi and Thunder Outreach Ministries.

It is with great pleasure that I recommend to you Mark and Lisa Malizzi and Thunder Outreach Ministries.
I have known the Malizzi’s for some time now and have witnessed the Hand of God in their lives. They have an unusual
grace upon them to think outside the box and to step into realms of possibility for God that few have dared go.

Their passion for the lost and forward thinking have given them a unique servant heart approach to ministry that has been
lacking in much of the Church today. I know that in the days ahead we will be hearing more from this couple not only on a
regional level, but also a national and even international level as their gift makes room for them and brings them before Kings.

I cannot over state my heartfelt endorsement of both Mark and Lisa and Thunder Outreach
as an end time arm of mercy extended by the Lord Himself.
Sincerely yours,
Dr. Bruce D Allen

Mark and Lisa Malizzi were prayed over and released by Dr.Gerald Derstine and his wife.

Dr. Gerald Derstine is an internationally known apostolic leader. Dr. Derstine is noted for his balanced teaching on the Holy Spirit and the Kingdom of God. He is the Founder/Chairman of Gospel Crusade Inc., Gospel Crusade Ministerial Fellowship, Strawberry Lake Christian Retreat, and Overseer for the Institute of Ministry Schools at the Florida, Minnesota, and New York Retreat Centers.

Today, we are consciously aware of our relationship with God, sons of God doing our Father’s Will. The fulfillment of the Lord’s Prayer has come into focus -- God’s Kingdom has come and His Will is being done, in earth as we believed it would be in heaven. Jesus is presently acknowledged as King and Lord in our lives; we see ourselves in the church as His subjects on the earth doing the Father’s works. We are empowered by His Spirit to do the works that Jesus said we could do. John 14:12-14.

Our vision has dramatically broadened and the WORLD is the Field. If an individual can be converted and changed, so also a community and a whole nation can be changed. Yes, the Holy Spirit brings into focus the Nations of the World. May the kingdoms of this world become the Kingdom of our God! There is nothing impossible with God.

Heaven’s Thunder has become a cross-pollination of true worshippers

By incorporating members from various “Sunday Morning” worship teams throughout the southeastern region of Pennsylvania, Heaven’s Thunder has become a cross-pollination of true worshippers who seek the heart of God every time they go on stage. This blending of hearts and musical styles has helped Heaven’s Thunder to create its own unique sound and approach to deep, meaningful worship. Combining the talents, energy and heart of its members into one cohesive unit Heaven’s Thunder has been able to successfully minister in many different ways to many different people.

By abandoning the traditional “bus-stop” approach used in so many churches today, Heaven’s Thunder has become most noted for their “river” style events where they move with the flow of God & allow His spirit to dictate both the direction and the outcome of the service/event. Their unique ability to transition from one song into the next as well as their spontaneous, God-breathed, “on the fly” changes to familiar songs make a “river” event exactly what it sounds like… A THRILL RIDE!!!

From high-energy, rock-inspired songs that make you want to get up and dance to the softer, deeper love-songs that draw you into the presence of God, their blend of well-known contemporary worship songs coupled with their original material makes the experience that much more fulfilling to the worshipper in all of us.

Their ability to sense God’s movement while leading worship has blossomed into numerous “free worship” and “prophetic” songs that not only captivate the crowd but touch them to the point where they worship so freely and with such passion and familiarity that they feel as if they have known the song their whole life.

What started out as a group of friends jamming in a basement and hoping to play a few songs at local churches every so often has evolved into a group now headlining larger events from community day/block parties, to Christian Biker Rallies to small 3 and 4 day revival services. In the summer of 2010 Heaven’s Thunder was blessed to work hand-in-hand with Barry Perez from Harvestime Ministries by leading worship at the “Arise Revival” events held throughout the Perkiomen Valley over a 3 month stretch.

The Bible states we may not always know God’s plan for us. Moving forward into 2011, Heaven’s Thunder knows God has a plan for them, whatever it is, and we hope that plan includes you!

Music and worship is a great way to open a path for our spirits and souls to be blessed by God's love and power. It is a river of spirit, emotion, compassion, and freedom that carries the heart of the Holy spirit to God's people. Reaching out to people and asking God to intercede in our lives open up the heavens and the door to His glory for our lives, families, communities, region, and nation.

Heaven's Thunder Music Ministries team members are worship leaders from many area and regional programs. They have been called to work together to spread God's love and to lead us into worship as we reach out to His people!

"...I want to recommend to you the ministry of Mark and Thunder Outreach. They will supply you with all the resources, people and passion that you can stand. They will also ignite a fire in your ministry for the reaching of souls and the advancement of the Kingdom of God in your community. There are many ministries who promise to deliver, but few follow few through on those promises. You will not be disappointed in Thunder Outreach. They will deliver!"
Pastor Johnny Jernigan
Senior Pastor, City Church of Mobile


"I continually praise God for you and your ministry! What a blessing it is to know you, worship with you, and serve God together.
I am truly blessed! I strongly encourage anyone and everyone to partner with Thunder Outreach. Since meeting Mark and later partnering with the ministry, I have seen the fruit of a ministry and lives lived out for God?s glory alone. I can honestly say that I know very few people, like the Malizzi?s, and very few ministries, like Thunder Outreach, that are so surrendered and so obedient to the Lord. God has anointed this ministry and is truly blessing them and using them well. What an encouragement it has been for me personally and for Calvary to know that we can count on Thunder to be there when we need them. I have learned so much and continue to grow as a result of ministering together. The church is a better church and my ministry is improving as we continue to go before the Lord together and follow His perfect plan for His glory alone. We are beginning to really impact our area for the Kingdom and bless many neighbors. I am looking forward to many more years of partnering and growing with Thunder Outreach Ministries. I can't wait to see where God is leading us! Thank You and Double Blessings! <><"

He quickly becoming a powerful tool of God that is being used as a bridge between churches, denominations, and generations.

"Just a note to say 'thank you' again for you and your worship team's leadership on Sunday.
I appreciate the way you were sensitive to what the Holy Spirit has been doing at Living Hope and how you were able
to strengthen the Word that we have been hearing.  Our people were blessed and I was encouraged.  Thank you again."
Yours in the kingdom,
Pastor John Holsey 


" Thank you so much for being a part of the Sleep Out so others may Sleep In event!  Thunder Outreach was a blessing in so many ways!  Your calm servant attitude was a powerful example to the rest of the planning team.  Your willingness to take on extra tasks without hestitation was an incredible help. The music, of course, was awesome.  Thank you, Thank you!!  -- The entire Sleep Out Team. "

"Thunder Outreach recently sent their worship team, Thunder Outreach Music Ministries, to lead our Sunday Morning worship at Bally Mennonite Church. The team prepared for our congregation with great sensitivity by choosing songs and presenting them at a level that allowed our people to enter into worship together. In a time when their are such diverse expressions of worship, it was refreshing to see a team able to adjust so easily to their spiritual surroundings in order to meet us where we are. I would highly recommend Thunder Outreach Music Ministries to any congregation that is even beginning to explore new forms of worship music as well as for those already deeply committed to stepping out into the deep waters of prophetic worship."
Jim Ralph, Senior Pastor
Bally Mennonite Church
Bally, PA


“What’s neat about Thunder Outreach is their efforts to bring the church and community together—not be the church
on the side of the road, but rather join hands with people from other backgrounds—and to do their work with excellence and persistence.  Loving God should drive us to higher heights, not be an excuse to do average work.
The folks at Thunder Outreach really do seem to get this.”
Timmy D
The Word FM


"I first met Mark Malizzi in the early 1970’s when he was a high energy little curly haired boy that lived behind the conference grounds where I served as director. He used to come to camp in the summer, but more than that he would walk over the hill and just hang out at the camp. My wife and I never had any children yet and we used to think how cool it would be to have a little “Mark”. I knew then that if this guy would ever turn all the energy he had into serving Christ that it would be a whirlwind. I lost track of Mark after I moved away, and now after being reconnected, it is such a joy to see what God has done in this guys life. It is to the glory of God what can be accomplished when we totally surrender to Christ. God Bless - Glory - Choose Joy"

Thunder Outreach’s focus includes reaching into the heart of communities with God’s Love!

The Thunder Outreach programs were birthed by a heart felt and Spirit filled need to take God's love and mercy out into our communities.

Jesus interceded for us and now it is our turn to follow his teaching and reach out and intercede for our communities.

Thunder Outreach is a (501c3) Charity and has programs that utilize many different components and sources from each community it works with. Based on the needs of that community, Thunder Outreach services will provide churches, businesses, fire and police departments, mayors and other community based groups with activities that build community projects, food drives, community and music outreaches that not only meet that need, but also create a network in that community that will last after the events are over. We have many different needs in our communities, and it has been said that our communities are better and stronger when we work together.

Thunder Outreach's focus includes reaching into the heart of communities and helping to build that team spirit while interceding and networking for and into each community it visits
