I had planned that a long time before. On it was an outline of the United States. Lights began to come on all across America on the banner until there was not a city, town or village where the light could not be seen. Most of our ministry had been outside the United States. My brother took fifty-five ministry tours to Israel and, in recent years, took groups to Russia twice a year for evangelism and church planting, as well as yearly trips to China and occasional trips to Nigeria, Brazil, India, the Philippines, Tibet and many other countries.
In all, he had preached in nearly a hundred countries and my mother, Rev. Edith Ward Heflin, in about eighty. Many of our staff and associates had preached in twenty-five nations or more.

The Lord was very gracious to me in this regard. I had been to every nation I knew of except North Korea. So before God moved me into a ministry to all of America, He opened to me the last remaining nation that I had not been able to visit. Like everyone in a new position, I wanted to do those things that we had been doing in the past.
I was determined to keep all the existing programs going and to add new ones. My brother had been so blessed in his mission trips and, since he had already announced a trip to Israel for March and a trip to Russia for April, I said that we would take those trips and had asked Brother Jones to be the host for them.
The week before the presidential inauguration in Washington, D. We sang prophetically and were carried away in the Spirit. During this intense time of revelation, the Lord suddenly made me to know that it would not be a problem for us to keep taking the missions trips, just as we had been doing. If we insisted on continuing all the outreaches to Russia and the other countries, we could do it. We had. He wanted us to now give our time and strength to the revival in America.
Brother Dwight Jones had been in the habit of going twice a year to Israel with my brother and on several trips to Russia. I told him to feel free to take groups to those places, but that we would not be having time for this ministry. I removed the tours from our flyers which announced all our upcoming events. This seems like such a simple thing in the retelling, yet it is surprising how locked in we get to ministry patterns. This changing pattern remains a bone of contention with some people until now, but revival means change.
One night during that same winter campmeeting, when Brother Clark Taylor was speaking, I saw a vision of some cornfields and a lone country house in the middle of them. But I was willing. Not long afterward I received a telephone call from a pastor inviting me to Paris, Illinois. While I was in Paris, Illinois, I met a pastor who had a church right in the middle of a cornfield. He was very receptive to our ministry.
Most of the churches I have been led to minister in this year have been in towns of less than two thousand people.
The total population of the town was less than the membership of many of the larger churches to which I was invited. But God had chosen to send me to the heartlands, and I was loving every minute of it.
The revelation we receive may not always be the one we want, but if we preach it we have to live by it. I had no great desire to go to the cornfields, but God knows where He needs us. Christ is Lord. If He shows you the heartland of America with a cornfield, you need to ask someone where the cornfields of America are. Somehow I had never pictured myself in middle America, but when.
When God speaks to you to go somewhere, you can know that someone in that place is praying. It may be an individual or a church, a government official or a whole group of people. Someone is praying the Macedonian prayer: come over and help us. Are you willing to become the answer to that prayer? When we are able to tell the story of the heartland of America, there will be much to tell, the unfolding of the plan and purposes of God.
We know that God will still send us to the nations, but, for the time being at least, we are committed to revival right here at home. Perhaps none of this should have surprised me. Before long, it began to come to me: America, America. God shed His grace on thee. And crown thy good with brotherhood, From sea to shining sea.
When God gave us the pattern for America, we had no details. We had to learn as we went. Earlier in , my brother and I and Dwight Jones, our friend from Texas, had been talking one day about the revival coming to America, and we agreed that we needed to begin to do in America what we had been doing overseas for many years.

We had in mind to do one major meeting somewhere in America every month. Before he died, my brother had already planned such meetings in Louisiana and Texas, and, after his passing, Brother Jones and I felt led to go ahead with those scheduled meetings. God gave us the free use of an auditorium for the first meeting. New Orleans was a lovely place to begin our ministry in the United States. Everyone there was very responsive to us. Brother Jones has a lovely conference center in Caddo Mills, just outside of Greenville, Texas, that he bought within the past few years, and we decided to have the second meeting there.
It is fifty miles or so south of Dallas, in the plains of Texas. About ten days before we got there, Brother Jones was getting ready to put a few announcements on television. Then, Rev. Floyd Lawhon who was in Atlanta,. Marcus Lamb was so excited that he quoted the statement on television daily for sometime. He ordered a thousand copies of my book and challenged his listeners to get their own copy.
When he discovered that I was coming to town, he arranged for Brother Dwight Jones and me to be on one of his programs.

God had been using him for revival. He interviewed us for an hour about revival and played it back three times that day and many times over the days and weeks to come. Since then I have returned as a guest on Channel 29 in Dallas several times. Brother Lamb and his wife Joni are busy promoting revival all over the Dallas—Ft. Worth Metroplex and graciously brought the mobile television unit and a crew out to Caddo Mills and filmed two services for us.
Brother Buford Smith of Abingdon, Virginia, preempted everything in his television schedule for five hours, as we talked about revival two nights in succession.
