THE BALKANS AND IRELAND: September 21 - October 23, 2021
Paul DeGagne and I will fly into Tirana, Albania  where Nick Tanasescu will meet us.  Albania 50 years ago was the hardest, most hostile place in the world to preach the Gospel. Today, doors stand open and ready to receive us. 
Nick and Deby have done energetic and aggressive evangelistic work in Macedonia for years. Recently, they moved their base of operations just over the border into Romania where they continue to reach out in a wide circle of ministry.
Last spring in a circle of prophets that meet monthly, Tiny Marias prophesied the Macedonian call to me personally. The call to 'come over and help us' is as real and needed today as it was in the Apostle Paul's day.

Paul and I will fly from Cluj Napoca, Romania to Ireland where we will minister from Cork in the south to Belfast in the north. The great lockdown of 2020 has been lifted so doors are open again and ready to receive us.
Please pray for protection as we travel and favour at the borders so we will 'have a prosperous journey by the will of God' (Rom. 1:10).

'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.
