Dear Friends & Laborers Together,


Boy has this year gone by quick. It seems that we are just finishing 2018 and now we are over halfway through 2019. For us it has been a busy year so far and I like being busy. All is well and our health springs forth like a watered garden.

We are getting ready for our yearly trek to Colombia and we are full of excitement and expectation for what we believe and see in our spirit that the Lord is going to do. Our focus is on salvations, healings, miracles, and signs and wonders. We serve a great God who can do this and much more. We believe these works of God are a witness to the lost of the greatness of our God. Our prayer is, “God give us one more soul,” but we are expecting that to be multiplied over and over again.

Colombia is ripe for revival and the Lord is moving there and has been for many years. In 1991 we gave a word to the Colombians that God was going to turn the government upside down. He has and He’s given us a door into the government as well.

We will be winning the lost, getting many filled with the Holy Spirit, and training Pastors as well. We expect to bear fruit and for that fruit to remain. We will be celebrating our 50th year in ministry in Colombia just like we spent our 50th birthday in the natural in Colombia. We love the Colombians and they love us so that is a matching that produces great results.

As always we ask for your prayers foremost and also for your financial support as the Lord leads you. These trips are becoming quite expensive due to many airline changes, fuel cost, and etc. so we need many to stand with us and many of you do, and have for many years. On an average we have close to a thousand conversions that we know about and we have that many filled with the Holy Spirit. Multiply that by 30 years and you have a significant amount. Also, consider the souls of those you and I have bought to Christ who will in turn win many more. It is an extremely significant amount of souls and you are a major part of that harvest. THANK YOU!

Mark these dates on your prayer calendar and begin to pray for us now: August 30th through September 23rd our D-day for Colombia. Pray we be granted utterance to proclaim the gospel and that we have great interpreters for they make a big difference in our results. Pray for our protection and that God will strengthen us with His Spirit of Might. We will do exploits for Him and above all that we bring great Glory to Him.

Please make any and all support out to Higher Realm Ministry and it is tax deductible that way. We appreciate your prayers and support and we pray God will bless you abundantly.

His For The World,

Kennith, Marlene & Jennifer - The Hughes


[In as much as we are talking about Angels in this message there is a warning about us not worshiping them nor are we to put anything or anyone before the Lord Jesus.]

Hebrews 11:27 - "By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible."

I have been meditating on the subject of Angels for over two years and marking the verses in my Bibles that refer to their activity with

the saints of God and especially to the prophet’s ministry, prophetic people, and churches. My study originated with a verse in 1 Corinthians 14:32 – “And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.” You will notice the plurality of the word spirits as well as the word prophets. This is significant because the word spirits refers to demon spirits, human spirits, and most of all to angels.

I immediately began to look to the Bible and especially to the activity of angels in the prophet’s ministry and found that many of the prophets of the Bible had angels that work with them and on their behalf.

A Few examples; Abraham had angelic visitations (Genesis 21:17 & 22:11,15), Moses (Exodus 3:2), Elijah (1 Kings 19:7 & 2 Kings 1:3,15) and Elisha (2 Kings 6:16,17). Elisha prayed that God would open his servant’s eyes. Notice this point that open eyes and prayer are used in the same verse. Then in Zachariah chapters 4-6 he especially has an abundance of angels working with him.

Next, there are several examples of saints who had visitations of angels. For example: Hagar (Genesis 16:7-11), Abraham’s servant (Genesis 24:40), Israel Collectively (Exodus 23:20-23, 32:34, & 33:2), and Samson’s parents (Judges 13:3-13). Then we must add Philip the Evangelist to the list (Acts 8:26), plus Peter (Acts 12:7,8), and Paul (Acts 27:23).

A point of warning about angels: It was Paul who told the Colossian church that they were not to worship angels (Colossians 2:18). So, there must have been an abundance of angels appearing in the beginning of the church. They are servants of God just like we are and are not to be worshiped (Revelation 22:8,9).

According to the word of God there are angels camped around us. We have been assigned angels to protect us. There are guardian angels. Also, angels that announce God’s message to us just as they did to the shepherds in Jesus' time. They are sent to aid and help us fulfill the work and will of God in the earth (Hebrews 1:14). They also help to bring in the harvest in the end time (Matthew 13:39). This is not an exhaustive collection of angelic activity, but just a few examples.

Now we need to know how to access the realm of the invisible and how to cooperate with the angels who are under the command of Jesus and assignment capabilities of the Holy Spirit.

First, but not least, the believer needs to be filled with the Holy Spirit and pray in the Spirit or in other tongues. It is at the place of prayer that we tap into the invisible and the power of God. An Old Testament example is portrayed in the life of Abraham and Jacob. Notice theses verses in (Gen. 12:7,8) where we see Abraham after an encounter with God building an altar (place of prayer and worship) to the Lord. Again, in (Gen. 13:3,4) when he was returning from Egypt he went back to Bethel where he had prayed before and called on the name of the Lord.

Then in Jacob’s story we see him fleeing from Esau his brother. He stops to rest his head on a rock and sleep. The rock that he was resting on could have quite possible been a rock from Abraham's prayer altar that Abraham built there. While sleeping he has a dream and sees a ladder going up to heaven and angels going up and down it. At this place where Abraham prayed, a place of prayer, the heavens are open, the realm of the invisible to the natural eye is open, and his spiritual eyes are open. He sees into the realm where supernatural things are happening and his response was “surely the Lord was in this place and I knew it not” (Genesis 28:10-22). So it is with us, heavenly angels and heaven’s activity are all around us at that place of prayer and many do not even realize it, BUT God wants us to. He wants us to keep our promises we made when we were in His Presence. Jacob made a promise and God kept him protected for over twenty years and brought him back to Bethel where he made a vow and told him to build an altar there. That is, make your own prayer memories. And Jacob kept his word (Genesis 35:1-7).

If we want to tap into the spiritual realm we must have a place where we pray in the spirit. When we do the Holy Spirit prays the will of God for us. Then the angels who hearken to the word of God in our mouth are assigned to help us carry out God’s will and purpose for the advancement of His Kingdom in the earth through us. Remember Paul said we may speak with the tongue of men and angels so whose not to say that when we pray in tongues that the Holy Spirit is giving instructions to OUR angels for us and on our behalf (1 Corinthians 13:1).

Now when we look closely at the book of Revelation then we see a lot of Angel activity taking place in end time events. An Angel is involved with the return of Jesus for the church, an announcement angel.

WORD FOR 2019: The more we get closer to the end, and we are in the last of the last days, then we are going to have many of the angels of God helping us. We must be in tune with the spiritual realm to accomplish what we are assigned to do. In 2019 we will see and hear of more angelic activity than ever before. The devil has come down among us with great fury trying to discourage God’s people and take them out of circulation through death and destruction and various other tactics. However, the Lord is going to open the eyes of those of His people who are spiritually in tune with Him. They are going to walk in the realm of the Spirit more than ever before. They are going to tap into the supernatural and they are going to have book of Acts experiences. Their angels are going to work with them like they did with Moses and the same signs and wonders are going to take place all around the world as Daniel said, “but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits” (Daniel 11:32).


Dear Friends and Partners,

We are gearing up for our mission trip to Colombia and we are excited as usual. We have been going to Colombia for 27 plus years and it never grows old to us. We have had thousands saved and filled with the Holy Spirit over that span of time. There is no way to number the miracles and healings we have witnessed. We have seen the blind see, the cripple walk, the barren womb healed and bare children, and a multitude of other miracles take place. We have

ministered to government officials, doctors, lawyers, and people from all walks of life. All I can say to that is if it had not been for Jesus none of this would happen for we can do nothing in ourselves, but through Him we can do all things and to Him alone belongs ALL the glory.

Our schedule this year is from August 22nd to September 24th and we know it will be full. We have just been to Bogota the last couple of years, but this year we are going to two other places. We are going to a large church in Yopal, which is in the oil fields of Colombia. Then we are also going to Sincelejo, which is near the coast. There we will do a minister’s convention and leadership training. We like these times for we extend our outreach through other Pastors, Teachers, and Evangelists. It has proven to be very productive over the years. AIso, we are doing meetings in Bogota and we are going to the North and South side of the city and doing crusades in one place and the other churches will join with us in one place. This has been and is our vision. We plan in the future to take teams with us and stay in one place and do meeting geared for the children, youth, families and Pastors. We are doing this in a limited manner this year but we have plans for greater things in the future.

You as our partners have been a tremendous help in this mission work and there are no words that can describe the appreciation we feel for you support. We just recently heard a saying,"Your gift saves lives." We want to modify that and say it this way, “YOUR GIFTS SAVE SOULS" and that is a fact that heaven will prove to you one day. We realize that many people sacrifice to give to us so we can go and do God's work and we do not consider that as a light thing. We consider it as a very precious thing.

Also, we know that so very many pray for us and we appreciate that the most. Please pray that God will strengthen us again this year and use us to win souls for Him. Commit to pray for us especially on the dates we are there. Also, we ask that you pray and as you feel led help us financially. These trips are costly, but we know every need will be met. Thank you so much for your help with prayers and finances and for your confidence in us. We will plant your seed in good ground. I might add our daughter Jennifer is going with us and another friend Sheri Johnston are meeting us in Colombia September 1st – 10th so put them on your prayer list as well. We speak a prophetic blessing over you in Jesus Name (Matthew 10:41).

Dear Friends and Partners,

Greetings in Jesus’ Matchless Name. With great joy we want to give you the report of our 2017 mission trip.

As usual, we hardly know where to begin and what to say for so much happens on these ministry trips. Some of our neighbors ask how our vacation went and we laugh for it is all work and no play when we go. This for us is a serious matter and we go with your

precious seed to plant in good ground and we believe we have done that successfully and that it will bear much fruit on your account.

We also want to say thank you for your support financially and for you prayer support. My wife and I realized we had much prayer support and we did not have to carry the prayer load like we have done before. We really felt the prayer of God’s people and the strength of the Lord was upon us so we say a great big thank you to all of you. You made our work much easier.

We were in Colombia for 41 days and we were busy from start to finish. We ministered in 18 churches as a team (Jennifer our daughter was with us). We had some days between meetings and we ministered to individuals and marriages as well. Our time is always productive for there are many needs and a lot of hungry people. Actually, we had a marriage seminar for one day and that was a challenge for me. I have never attempted that before and I am not qualified for that, but many gave testimony of being helped so praise the Lord for that.

Our meetings started with a minister’s prayer breakfast and there were over 50 Pastors in attendance. We ministered on the Dynamic of the Holy Spirit necessary for the church and for our ministries. There was a lot of personal ministry for the Pastors and their wives. It was a great time in the Lord.

We are guess-ta-mating (new word) that we had well over 300 saved and close to 500-600 filled with the Holy Spirit. We try to keep record of that, but it is difficult to do in big crowds. This once again is from team results. So many responded to the infilling of the Spirit of God and as you give the call they are speaking in tongues as they come even before we instruct them and pray for them. It is such a delight to see them get empowered by the Holy Spirit.

In one meeting we had about six little boys who did not have saved mothers or fathers and these kids get filled with the Spirit of God and they were so precious. I think they adopted me as their father and it was such an exciting thing to see.

Where healing is concerned only God knows all that was done but we have some testimonies that we know about. There was one lady who was healed in both shoulders of a rotary cuff problem as result of a word of knowledge we gave in a service. Another was healed of GERD. There was one lady whose two middle fingers were frozen in a closed position that was healed while we were preaching and she came and gave witness to her healing. Then a little boy who had a speech impediment was healed and we had him say the Korean word for baby pronounced “aggie” in English and he spoke clearly. Another was healed of a bladder problem and the list goes on.

I can hardly wait until we are all in heaven and we get the accurate report of all that was done. I am sure we will be surprised and greatly blessed. Colombia’s 2017 campaign slogan, “Not By Power, Nor By Might, But By My Spirit,“ was a success thanks to the Lord and you our great partners. I wish I could sit down with you all and tell you the many things that happened so I hope this report helps you see what you have done for His Kingdom. God Bless you abundantly!

Dear Friends and Partners,

Well our trip to Colombia is over for this year and we are making plans for next year already. Please make it a matter of prayer if you will for we have many doors open and we need to know which ones to walk through and the strength to do them.

We so much appreciate you prayers and financial help. We cannot tell you enough of what a blessing you are to us and the Colombian people. I tell them I have some of the best partners in the world.

I was able to use some of the surplus of the offerings above our expenses and be a blessing to some of those folks. I told them it was from my partners and it blessed them to hear that.

We are going to try to list some of the many things that happened, because we want you to see what your seed has produced and it is continuing to bear fruit.

Our first meeting was with our Colombian son Eduardo & Faisuly Maldonado and family on the south side of Bogota. His daughter, and our Colombian granddaughter Nataly, was our interpreter and we had wonderful meetings. They had been trying to sell their apartment home for over a year, but had no response. In one of the meetings we had a witness that angels were present and we actually heard them singing (this never happened to me before) so I reminded them of Hebrews 1:14 how that ministering angels were bidden of God to minister to us, so we put them to work. The Pastors did that and at the end of the meeting someone bought their apartment. Then the Pastors wife was healed of a serious thyroid problem as well. This was only a small portion of what the Lord did there.

Next, we did two days of meetings from 9 am – 5 pm of solid teaching to over seventy Pastors and only eternity will tell what the fruit of that will be. A highlight for me was that my manual on the 5-fold ministry was translated and completed in Spanish. We gave one away to each Pastor plus we taught on that subject so they received a DVD as well. What a joy!

We will list below some of the miracles we saw, but not give the details so you can see in part what happened. The biggest of miracles was the salvation of over 200 people that came to the Lord and 225 were filled with the precious Holy Spirit. This was your seed at work:

A. In Sogamoso Colombia:

  1. Two delivered from a suicide spirit
  2. One little lady healed from a deaf and mute problem
  3. One person healed from a partial paralysis of her arm (instant freedom)

B. Pastors meetings in Bogota:

  1. Lady headed in her leg and a blood clot dissolved. Also her daughter who lives in Germany called and was delivered from depression and needed direction. We prayed with her and she was greatly helped
  2. Several were healed of back problems as well

C. Several Meetings in Bogota:

  1. One man who was a carpenter had chemicals splashed in his eyes and the Pastor saw him the next day and he was perfectly healed
  2. Prayed for an older gentleman on the street at the Capital who had cancer and we believe he was touched by the Lord
  3. Several drug addicts were delivered from addictions and the demons came out and they were set free

When we go back next year we will hear of many more things that were done. We must say that the presence of God in these services was beyond description. We wish we could convey that, but we do not know how. All in all, this was a great 27 days of heaven on earth and the half has not been told until eternity. You are a major part of that work. I go and YOU sent me. Thank you so very much and may God bless you abundantly for your generous giving hearts!

His and Yours for Souls,

Kenneth & Marlene Hughes



I have been rolling around in my mind all the things I want to say about our recent missions trip and as usual it is difficult to put in a letter form all the things that God did. It's like the old saying, "You just had to be there.” Experience is a powerful picture maker. The Lord in action and there in “Presence” is more than words can describe.

There were over 125 people that came to the Lord plus all who received via the internet streaming, which touched several nations including some Arabic speaking nations. We never get the tally, but only that “many” were ministered to and touched by God’s presence. We are eternally grateful for that. Our figures were as follows:

  1. 125 plus salvation's
  2. 105 plus filled with the Holy Spirit
  3. Over 155 people came for deliverance from bondages
  4. 290 prayed for specific healing needs and 6 people healed from deafness

These are conservative figures for you can't keep an accurate report due to the crowds of people. We had 110 plus leaders at our leaders meetings, which was 5 services in one day. There was a real move of the Spirit operating in the Word of Knowledge and Word of Wisdom. In fact there was such a flow of the gifts of the Spirit in all the meetings that I have not been moved to operate like that for a long time. As one Pastor who commented about the operation of the Spirit said it was, “very precise.” We ministered to the lost, but also to the saints as well. There was also many delivered from demonic bondages. Together with our daughter Jennifer we ministered in Bogota, Facativa, and Cali, Colombia. Jennifer ministered in a Bible School in Cali and had great results as well.

All of this was made possible by those of you who gave and prayed for us. We are already making plans for a longer stay next year. I might add that my health is great and we were more like our old self this time around. Truly the truth of Isaiah 40:31 was operating in us this time. I am sure it is because you prayed and stood with us. Words can't express our gratitude for you and your missions heart, your praying, and your giving. We always like to bring back little gifts, but due to airline restrictions on weight limits we were unable to do very much. I pray this letter will be the biggest gift we could give for these results are YOUR results.

Abundant Blessing,

Kennith & Marlene Hughes


When we were in South America in July 2014 the word of the Lord came unto me to prophesy concerning the world scene for 2015. I tried to get that prophesy but I haven’t as of yet since it was interpreted from English to Spanish. It was something that came directly through and from my spirit by the Holy Spirit. I do not remember it word for word but in essence I recall the main topic of what the Spirit of God was saying.

I see a roller coaster ride for the world, a series of ups and downs in the economic arena, and some serious times for the world and the cold church. This will cause repercussions in other areas. Fear will grip people’s hearts because of the things coming upon the world. There will be a sharp increase of various calamities of nature that will occur and cause financial difficulties on the earth as well. Men will do terrible things because of the fear that grips them.

I see a more intense persecution of the true Christians by the world and other so called Christians (in name only). The love of MANY shall wax cold and grow colder. Deception will be at an all-time high. There will be a tremendous need for God’s people to cry out for and walk in discernment being led by the Holy Spirit.

The church will become more and more spiritually dull to the point that it will declare good evil and evil good under the guise of so called unity. Deception will be at epidemic levels because of a lack of love for the truth. They will be caught up in the drunken cares of life and spiritually become desolate and there will be a famine of honorable men (ministers) to the point that spiritual dearth will be the results in the church. There will be ministries and ministers that will sell out in the name of unity. Those who have held the truth will speak evil of the way of truth. They will be as Isaiah declares, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.” (See: Isaiah 5:13 below) They cannot discern between good and evil.

Isaiah 5:8-13 will be the results of that dullness, "8 Woe unto them that join house to house, (or ministry to ministry for the sake of unity or alliance with Christ denying religions) that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth! 9 In Mine ears said the LORD of hosts, Of a truth many houses (churches) shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant. 11 Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them! 12 And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the LORD, neither consider the operation of His hands. 13 Therefore My people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, (in a dearth) and their multitude dried up with thirst."

Being led of the Spirit will also be totally necessary because of the need to survive economically and especially spiritually for God has set aside provision for the true body of Christ. Those who hunger and thirst for the things of God We WILL be fed in the time of famine. Psalms 33:18,19, "Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear Him, upon them that hope in His mercy; 19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine (spiritual famine and natural famine)."

There will be an increase in demonic attack causing division and confusion because the ministry and the church do not and will not recognize their true enemy. Their refusal to preach and practice deliverance will result in the devil being able to wreck havoc in and on the church because they do not know how to deal with the true source of their problems. The devil has come down among us for his time is short.

Here is the good news. Isaiah 40:1-5, “1 Comfort ye, comfort ye My people, saith your God. 2 Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD'S hand double for all her sins. 3 The voice of Him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. 4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: 5 And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it."

The Church needs to speak comfortably to Israel and stand with her in every way because as we do we will be blessed. Although the world will be in turmoil, we will be blessed as we follow the Lord. We will experience some of the most powerful demonstrations of God’s Spirit in those places where His people are really hungry. The crooked places will be made straight for us as His children. The low place (places of lack) will be made level. We will hear HIS voice in the wilderness (those times when things are seemingly desolate and the church has a dull ear). God’s light (glory) will shine through the TRUE church brighter and brighter due to the extreme darkness in the world. This will be the finest hour spiritually and every other way for the TRUE Church. His glory will shine upon us.
