What a week we have had, with two Conferences back to back. We had never done that before. On Wednesday and Thursday we held our first Rule of Life Conference and we were blessed by people’s responses at the end. ‘I am going home a new person.’ ‘I know my life can never be the same again.’ ‘I have found God in a new way.’ ‘I have found myself again.’ Around 72 people attended and we met in Jabes, just along the valley, where we hold our monthly Prayer Day.
Then on to our annual Kingdom, Power and Glory Conference and what an exceptional time it was. Held in Caersalem, along our valley again, we had 186 (our maximum as always) from Friday to Sunday Lunchtime, from nations including Wales, England, Scotland, Ireland, Argentina, Colombia, The USA, Canada, Zimbabwe, Lebanon, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand. Teaching was by Roy and Daphne Godwin and Rev Elfed Godding (National Director, Evangelical Alliance Wales) with worship led quite wonderfully by Sound of Wales. The Lord moved amongst us with transforming and healing power. During the Sunday morning service, scores queued to give testimony of what God had done for them in one sentence each and then we built a glorious altar of praise to the Lord.
We give thanks for what the Lord did amongst us and for the stories of grace which often moved us to tears. I think I lost count of the number of people who said that they had been set free to be themselves with other people instead of trying to create a false persona. Even so, come Lord Jesus and keep setting people free!
