Thanks again for the great teaching a couple of weekends ago.  I’m sorry I had to miss Tree of Life due to work, but I have been listening to the CDs and am about halfway through them.  It’s been incredible so far…hard to put into words what all I’ve learned right now.  My mind has been sufficiently put in its place though and that is a huge step for me.  Anyway, looking forward to Advanced training next month… Also, Tom wanted me to share one of my encounters I had since leaving the farm.  A little setup first…I didn’t know what exactly was happening that whole weekend until I saw it in light of my experience.  But, I literally cried almost those entire two days…it wasn’t boo-hoo’ing, but silent, steady streams of tears.  We have a lot of common past … Read More…

A very full month ago, I came to live on Our Father’s Farm.  Before this, for a couple months I spent my weekends on the Farm, and my weekdays working an office job in Kansas City.  The Lord drew me during this time, past my fears of surrendering more of life, to come closer to His heart. In 2009, the Lord had invited me to leave all I knew; my big city life in Chicago and plans to advance my career as a college instructor and administrator in New York, to come join the International House of Prayer in Kansas City. Stepping into the fire of His love and will for my life, the call did not end there.  Jesus beckons us further and further in, closer to His heart as we give all of us for more of Him. ...

Susie

Too young to be a mother, and too young at age 13 to even understand, Susie’s mother took her for her third abortion. Terrified, she laid on the table shaking and crying. A nurse, seeing her tears, talked in a hateful way to her, treating her like nothing more than an object. Why is the nurse so angry? Susie wondered. She dreaded what she knew was about to happen because she’d been here twice before when she was twelve. The doctor walked into the cold, tomblike room and paralyzing fear gripped her. Time stood still in the little girl’s heart and mind as the doctor did what he had come to do. A short time later, Susie was taken home by a mother who was a stranger to her. There were no words of comfort, no expressions of kindness, no ... Read More...

Theresa

The spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.  He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captivities and release from darkness for the prisoners.  Isaiah 61:1 This verse rings so true in my heart after returning back home from Our Father's Farm.  During my stay on the farm, I had a God-filled time of healing and an incredible in-filling of Jesus in my heart and spirit.  I was told of the Good News, my heart started healing, freedom was proclaimed to me as a captive and I was a prisoner released from darkness. PRAISE GOD!!! I had been in counseling for 7 years almost on a weekly basis.  I suffered with anxiety that had significantly gotten worse over the last ... Read More...

Caleb

Psalm 127:3 says Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him.  I keep reminding myself of that, trying to reconcile that fact with my reality.  This last gift, our adopted grandson, makes good grades in school but is a self-professed bully, and socially challenged at best.  “If I get them first, they will know better than to mess with me,” has been the barbed fence of protection around his heart.  I say fence because at times, although rarely, Caleb can be loving, helpful, kind and very charming.  Needless to say, life with him is a constant challenge trying to make sure he remains calm and in control.  Covert behavior redirection has been an ally but the stress of constantly being on guard and a step ahead has taken its toll.  Many days I feel like a ...

Jordan

I’M A MIRACLE! (Jordan's Story) By Jordan, age 16, January 2012 I don’t think I can ever thank Jesus enough. I often feel like going outside and getting on my knees and thanking God because I’m a miracle. I didn’t think it could ever happen. My mom and sister thought I’d never be free. Now I am free and I can help other girls like me who were hurt. After my first healing session, I went home and slept in my bed for the first time in 7 years! My sister said, “Somebody did something good to Jordan! This can’t be happening!” You see, I was abused. I had a horrible childhood. I was terrified of everything. I couldn’t sleep in my bedroom for years. I was afraid that my biological dad would come and kill my mom and my ... Read More...

I have been doing God Encounter Healing Sessions for a year now – at the church and at home at the computer. I can honestly and safely say – I have changed! I’m not the same on the inside. I’ve been on a journey for a “Holy Makeover” and still am and plan to continue. Jesus has shown me unconditional love – forgiveness for my past mistakes. He has become more real to me and I have fallen more in love with Jesus. That was confirmed when someone used his name along with a disgusting cuss word. I then realized I did love Jesus more deeply. I GAINED: SELF WORTH – A NEW IDENTITY. I am no longer just Renita’s twin sister or Marshall’s wife. I am now the bride of Christ. ANSWERS. I now can go in prayer and ... Read More...
