A time and a season for everything
a little more about me
My Name is Leanna Corvo, and I have been given the passion for this website for quite some time. Since my conversion in my early thirties, I have had a passion for sharing the good news of the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST, our precious LORD and soon coming King! (and I am soon to be 67! Thank you JESUS for all the years)
All my Ministry has always been by divine leading and vision, and because of that once given a vision I have no peace until I complete the mission given. I had attempted to fulfill this once or twice prior to this , but the time was obviously not right as it never materialized though I tried. As I said, no peace until the vision comes to fruition, so here I am, and I believe the time is now! So I welcome you to this mission and pray it will be something that stirs your heart in the LORD and brings you a sense of unity in the Spirit edifying you in some special way. But most of all glorifying to our LORD JESUS CHRIST!
A little history
As I said above, as soon as I came to understand the LORD was real and that He heard my outcry, I have spent all my energies wanting to know as much about Him and all that He desires for my life as I can, while telling anyone who would listen about what the LORD was teaching me in my life. In 2003 after a great deal of prayer I stepped into a much deeper and full time service to our LORD as I walked away from everything I personally owned, other than what would loosely fit in a small closet, and set out to continue my work on a full time basis.
Long before I stepped out, I began my journey fulfilling a vision the LORD gave me for Christian graphics, where Scripture was the graphic and artwork was built around the scripture. This aided in supporting the ministry work that would follow. I was then given a vision for a newsletter that became an 8 page, color, interactive mailing that went into, by its end, 52 different prisons primarily in CT, FL and NY. We had inmates writing testimonies, doing incredible artwork, poetry and a few men that were given monthly blogs to further develop their writing gifts. That went on for 11 years before lack of time and money brought it to a halt. There was a great deal of interactive correspondence done with those on our lists, and each new name was only added when another inmate passed on a mail-in card requesting to be added to our list. All mailings went directly to the inmates themselves, because I wanted this to be an opportunity for them to feel special, that they were not just some part of a mass mailing with no individual contact from another person.
During those 11 years the LORD also sent me into a local rehab that had numerous off campus houses, where weekly I went into these houses to do evangelistic meetings. The average attendance was for 6 weeks which was the extent of the program and I spent 2-3 hours with each group. From that we brought many attendees to local church services at houses of worship that supported my work. At the peak of this season I was doing 9 meetings a week. This went on for 4 ½ years.
Over the last ten years while caring for my dad as I said, I was forced to close the two buildings we rented locally to do much of our teaching, and all the other aspects of ministry. After those closings I worked out in the community either assisting one church for two years with promoting a more disciple making atmosphere, or out in the community in homes and offices where small groups of seriously committed people would gather together to understand the life of a disciple more deeply. Now that my Dad is with the LORD I am once again as I said, stepping out into full time ministry to devote myself to whatever the LORD gives me to do.
Current and future plans
As I said briefly on the front page, I will attempt by GOD’s Grace to continue my writing which I really enjoy, through Food for thought, a blog on being on the Road for JESUS, and a blog on the Life of a care taker all from the perspective of showing others that no matter what we face we can live it out boldly for the LORD no matt how difficult it becomes.
As I also said I am still waiting for a Word from the LORD directing me into the path of ministry that He will lead me to as I get back to my own life after the years of caretaking my Dad. Whatever He calls me to will be what my heart desires!
Currently as I am staying in Florida awaiting the ability to get on the road, getting used to everything I need to know to live in and maintain my Rv life, the LORD has opened up an opportunity to work with two couples here in my area, and what a joy it is to get back on the horse and ride, even if its only at trot at the moment!
I will also be working on supporting myself with graphics and wooden items I make, all biblically themed. I will be displaying those items on this site but directing those interested to another site in the near future where I will be able to sell from the site.
