Minister Leah and member Terrea from Deer Park Community Church in North Carolina arrived on January 16th, 2018 for one week's praying training at Elim Center. God has refreshed their hearts deeply and greatly strengthen their faith.
" I feel aerated in my heart and mindset and more encouraged after Bible study。After studying Isaiah 55:6-8, and even reading the whole chapter, I know God is near me even when I mess up and feel like hiding. I have peace knowing God's thoughts are so much greater than anything my mind could come up with. To know God has my thoughts covered by his eve, when my thinking is stinking and worry tries to distract my mind into trying to figure everything out, I have great peace. In addition, prayer time the entire day was also powerful and encouraging. I know God was speaking through his people because there were questions on my heart that God was answering and I know he was confirming his presence. I have peace knowing that I shouldn't self-condemn myself for my past mistakes nor should I condemn anyone else. I look forward to the rest of the week. " Terrea shared.
" I am very thankful to be here. I was tired and having worry and despair in my heart before I came, but after the prayer and bible study, my heart is at peace and once again i can feel the love of God and his present with me. I really hope to bring many people here that they can also come to receive rest and His love." Minister Leah shared.
We are so thankful that God gave us these precious time we can pray, live and fellowship with members in Elim and receive much support and strength.
