Brendan McCauley of Northern Ireland had five dreams about me in two weeks, this summer. When I phoned to ‘inquire of the Lord’ he told me about putting ‘brogues’ on my feet. They are a ‘rough, heavy shoe’ that used to be worn in the highlands of Scotland and Ireland. In this case, they were made of very fine, soft leather to maximize comfort and appearance.

In another dream, Brendan’s ‘diary’ was too full so he asked some of the leaders if I could come instead. They said yes, that would be fine. Brendan does not like schedules, preferring to keep things open, flexible and spontaneous. He feels to do some ‘new things’ this time, so we will ‘mix and match’ the new and the old. ‘Every scribe instructed concerning the kingdom, is like a man who brings out of his treasure things new and old’ (Mat 13:52).

Scotland would certainly be something fresh and ‘new’ for me. To walk among these nations in my new shoes and reap some of the fruit of their land, would be my great joy and privilege!

I am now booked to depart Vancouver September 19th and arrive in Belfast, then depart Dublin October 20th, arriving home the next day. Your intercessory prayers for protection and provision during these uncertain times, mean more to me than I can say!

'Release Ministries' began in the 1990's during a series of visits Lionel Batke made to Japan with veteran missionaries, Donnel & Venda McLean. One day Donnel said, ‘This is a release ministry’. Years later when the society was being formed, Pastor Doug Fortune prophetically confirmed it to be the name of this new thing God is doing.

This ministry was incorporated under the Societies Act of British Columbia September 19, 2011 and registered in Ottawa as a charity January 24, 2013. Lionel was the founder together with a Board of Directors, and sole minister at that time.

In April, 2015 Liz Fitzgibbons, a prophetess, laid her hands on Lionel during a visit to Cork, Ireland. She said God was calling him to finish the work He started in him, and that younger men would be raised up during his lifetime with the ‘same lick of the Lion’. This would give ‘continuity’ and ‘multiplication’ to the ministry because everything God does continues and is multiplied.

In 2018 the Lord began leading certain ministers with similar vision, to work together. This resulted in the formation of intersect- ing circles of ministry within the society, in which each one moves freely in their own sphere of influence at home and abroad.
