Revival in Vancouver, BC, Canada
Dear pastors Rodney & Adonica, My wife and I would like to be web members of your church. We watch online every service, and we are so blessed by your ministry. We found out about you in 1995, when a Canadian pastor brought to Russia (where we used to live) a few video tapes. These tapes were a great instrument in our bible school and also seed in our hearts. Next year we moved to America and visited your meetings in Vancouver, Canada. We have never experienced so much freedom before. This freedom is the reason why we want to be on your campmeetings again and again. Thank you for your teaching, thank you for allowing the Holy Spirit to do work in peopleâ€™s hearts. We can say with full confidence, that your ministry changed our lives. Thank you so much!!! Please consider us as part of The River Church.
During this time I saw visions, had dreams, and saw and felt manifestations of the spirit people are talking about today. I was on fire!! I began to hear the Lord’s voice clearly writing down his words to me. I could not freely speak or reveal these visions and manifestations not even to my young husband, parents, family, or especially the church leaders. Pastor Rodney in thirty years I have not found many men or women who are faithful like you have been. I began like an innocent child of God just obeying the Lord while He graciously poured His Spirit upon me. He used me in the gifts especially prophecy. I also began to operate according to I Cor. chapter 12 in: 1. discerning of spirits 2. word of knowledge 3. word of wisdom. Our church background began when we left Catholic Church in 1976. We were led by the Spirit a church called Grace World Outreach in St. Louis Missouri. It was there that I would publically prophesy. Later we moved to Lancaster, Pennsylvania where we were members of The Worship Center for ten years. I first served with children as a Children’s Pastor in the early 1980’s; then I would later lead and teach as a Care Pastor in small home groups, intercessory prayer, and daily intercession. I knew I was called for a purpose and destiny but I kept experiencing setbacks in the natural. I grew stronger and wanted to win the lost and to evangelize. I had many times of great sorrow and severe testing’s. I also served in some other local ministries but God kept me hidden in prayer. He told me I was his secret weapon. To tell you the truth I felt like others were being promoted and I was passed up by the Lord. Back in 1976 My husband and I began to give just twenty dollars a month to then CBN and we became 700 Club Partners. We also began to give to our local church tithing regularly and reaching out supporting missions all over the world and even when it hurt. After my initial encounter with Jesus and I began to bloom over a period of time, in my prayer closet the Lord began to reveal past hurts and memories that I had held onto in childhood. I suffered trauma from the pain I endured after many years of neglect and abuse which left a mark or scar on my emotions. I suffered and needed to be delivered from rejection and fear.
