Testimonies Power 2009Meirium D. Leonard from Sri Lanka said,
"During the inner healing session, God called out my name and gave me a wonderful message. I am so happy about it. I was so sad about all the problems in my life and I didn’t feel loved by God. But now I know I’m so precious to Jesus."
Warren from Canada said,
"It was just awesome! Every experience I had was just amazing, but the one thing that always stood out for me was when I was praising and thanking God I felt a sense of peace and I felt so light and that I could do anything. I actually felt the presence of God moving and filling each and every one of us. I could see that God was happy when he looked down upon all the thousands of us just praising and thanking Him with all our hearts. I felt like God was always going to be part of my life and that He would never leave me under any circumstances. Coming to India for this retreat will probably be the best decision I will make in my life, and I thank God for still being part of me every day and making me feel Him through everything that I do. "
Pahell Nisar from Pakistan said,
"My many problems the Lord has solved and He has revealed his plans for me."
Chris Leonard Bernard from Bangalo said,
"Had a marvelous experience. I had a personal encounter with Jesus. I have experienced God’s love and mercy. This retreat has given me a burning passion to work for our God and proclaim His Word."
