Fern & Rich's Story
My husband Rich and I spent many years on the mission field for Wycliffe before we were exposed to Emotional Healing Prayer. I had been carrying many fears and insecurities from my early years. I went through this life-time prayer and, in doing so, found freedom from fear and a terrible sense that God would allow something bad to happen to me. During the following year, God wonderfully continued His healing work in me. He removed a lot of super-sensitivity that caused me to feel things so deeply and over-identify with people in sufferings, etc. I was 41 years old at the time, so it was amazing to finally be free from these feelings and fears.
Because of the work of God's Spirit in my life and my husband's, we began sharing together more in praying for people and reaching out to fellow-workers. We also became more interested in Emotional Healing Prayer and began to read what we could find on the subject. In time, we were able to go through the Philippian Ministries Training Seminar. It provided invaluable tools for us in ministry. What we learned is being blessed by God, not only for our use in ministry, but also for others. We are very grateful and feel God has mightily used that training in our lives. In the field, there were opportunities among fellow-workers and also in the tribes. We didn't lack for opportunities to share and encourage.
"We are very grateful to God for His wondrous healing and for the tools we received from Philippian Ministries."
Now, as we retire in California, we remain open to being vessels of God's healing in the lives of His hurting children. There is such a desperate need for this type of ministry. So many could use the freedom found in this prayer. We are very grateful to God for His wondrous healing and for the tools we received from Philippian Ministries.
