GO-YA Word of Hope and Goya Foods Recipe By Annamarie Strawhand

I have continued to pray and intercede for our beautiful country of America and praying and declaring over our wonderful President Donald J. Trump – praying for God’s hand to come upon the 2020 election as so many of you have been too.   It’s no secret to many of you who know me that I am a strong supporter to President Trump.  I have been hearing prophetically from the Holy Spirit regarding Donald Trump since before the 2016 election.   I have had many prophetic dreams about Donald Trump and the future of America and the Holy Spirit has confirmed to me many times He has anointed and chosen President Donald J. Trump to be President of the United States and to fulfill God’s plan and purposes for America and her people at this time for two terms.

About a month ago, I was watching a livestream press conference with our President at the White House and he was hosting Hispanic owned businesses in America, and one of the businesses was GOYA Foods.  The CEO of GOYA Foods is a man of great faith – Robert Unanue – and in his speech after the meeting Mr.Unanue  spoke about prayer and the blessings of God on this country and his support of President Trump.

“Today, it gives me great honor, and by the way, we’re all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder, and that’s what my grandfather did. He came to this country to build, to grow, to prosper. We have an incredible builder, and we pray. We pray for our leadership, our president, and we pray for our country that we will continue to prosper and to grow.” – Robert Unanue – CEO Goya Foods – White House, July 10 2020 (Read full transcript of Goya Foods CEO Speech Here)

This great and inspirational business leader, Mr. Unanue of GOYA Foods received alot of backlash for his words in that speech – particularly from the mainstream media and those who are hateful towards our President. This is confirming to me that the Holy Spirit of God was speaking through Mr. Unanue.   I could feel faith in his words and they were from the heart – this was a man of God and a KINGDOM BUSINESSMAN.  I loved his patriotism and love for our country – and most of all to see a leader of a company be bold, and stand up for God and Country no matter what anyone thinks.   I decided like many Patriotic Americans of Faith to support GOYA Foods, and I went and purchased some cans of  GOYA chick peas and olive oil – and planned to make a recipe with it and share with all of you.

I came up with a recipe for  “Fried Chick Pea Patties” using the GOYA products in my trusty cast iron skillet.

The Holy Spirit spoke to me:  “What do My people call Me?  Is it not YAWEH and YA?  I am sending a message of HOPE to my people!  Do you not perceive it?  I am speaking an encouraging word to AMERICA here!   My people must start to cheer on my SPIRIT in America!  I am here and I am working through your President and through those who are standing for ME and MY Kingdom in this Nation!” – Says The Spirit of God

WOW!!! This is a time of great and mighty miracles – a time of great hope! We the people must keep cheering and encouraging the move of God in this Country! GO YA! GO YA! GO YA!

“GO YA! You got this! The Kingdom is YOURS! America is yours! The Glory is Yours! GO YA!!! whooo hoooo!”

I could feel the pleasure and the excitement of the Holy Spirit!  He wants His people cheering for Him!  Staying hopeful and excited for the Victory is the Lord’s!

I looked up the Hebrew root word YA and it’s short for:


Meaning the true name of Jesus Christ and meaning “HE SAVES”

My friends, keep cheering and staying focused and faithful for the VICTORY!


Stay vigilant, stay in the word of God, keep putting on your Armor of God daily (suit up) – blow the shofar (the victory trumpet) and keep building, and doing what you have been called to do for the Lord and the Kingdom and the Glory is here in America!


God Bless our President, Donald J Trump for hearing the guidance of the Holy Spirit in all things pertaining to God’s plan in America and for the people!  God Bless Mr. Unanue for being a Kingdom Business and leading and standing strong by his faith in Jesus Christ! GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Interestingly, even though the media and those who are in deception by the enemy denounced and criticized Mr. Unanue’s remarks on faith in God and praising our wonderful President – it did not hurt him or GOYA Foods at all – instead the company’s sales increased exponentially!  GOYA products are flying off the shelves!  My friends this is a representation of what God is doing with us, His church, His ecclesia!  The more they try to denounce us as Christians, the more blessed, PROSPEROUS and influential we are becoming in the Nation and across many Nations and in the MARKETPLACE!  Now is the time to launch your businesses, products, books, movies and whatever God has called you to produce and build!   Yahshua is with us and ALL OF HEAVEN IS CHEERING US ON!  WE HAVE THE VICTORY!

Here is the recipe: When you make this, make sure you do the ‘GO -YA” Cheer!
