Life-Changing Encounters with God

 

God is faithful to His promises. This years's first batch of Encounter participants have experienced overwhelming breakthroughs in their lives.  So many lives changed.  And He did immeasurably more than we asked or imagined (Eph. 3:20).  Even the workers and volunteers who were there for the 2nd. 3rd, or 4th time experienced more breakthroughs.  Everyone learned about the beauty of  redemption, why we must love repentance, how to  travel light and get rid of excess baggage, how to arm oneself with tools for victory, how to accept the Father's love, why purity matters, and how to receive inner healing,  

Jennifer Agcaoili, a young mother, shared that through the Encounter, she was able to forgive those who hurt her  She proudly declared that she has received the best advanced birthday gift---the Holy Spirit.  She discloses that now, she is free to lift up her hands in worship.

Angelyn Hernandez, 12, says, "Dati, ang favorite kong superhero ay si Wonder Woman.  Ngayon, si Jesus na!" ("Before, my favorite superhero was Wonder Woman.  Now I know that there is only one real superhero---Jesus!")


Angelyn realizes that there is a real Superhero Who saves---Jesus. 


Vejaya Bacani was once confused about her identity, but after the Encounter, she declared, "Gusto ko nang magbago. Ayoko na ng ganito!"  ("I want to change. I don't want to be like this anymore!")


Vejaya determinedly makes a decision to allow Jesus to change her to become the woman God has planned her to be.

Roger Crisostomo has found not just love, but overflowing love and acceptance.

Indeed, not a single person left the DMMMSU-Sapilang venue the same as before.  Everyone experienced the life-changing presence of God in their hearts and lives.  Eyes were opened.  Ears have become sensitive to the voice of their Shepherd.  Hearts became softened and receptive to His Word.  


Renewed, refreshed, revived! This year's first batch of Encounter participants together with the workers and volunteers.

And what a way to close a victorious weekend than with a night of worship and singing and just simply celebrating the series of victories.  More Encounter participants, workers, and volunteers testified during Soaking Night about how God moved in their lives.  It was truly an overwhelming weekend---so many lives changed and souls saved.  And this is just the beginning. 


Tim Warden shares a Word.

Christopher, a multi-media volunteer, testifies that he has encountered God in all the 4 sessions he has attended.

Next step: Post-encounter and School of Leaders. Grow more in the knowledge of God! Finish strong! =)
