"[During a staff retreat weekend,] I was asking God what to do. He told me to lie down, so I did and put on some worship music. It was an album I had never heard before. I was about to get up to share the cool music and God told me to lie back down, so I did. After I lay back down and I saw myself lying down and stitches were going up my torso. I saw God cutting the stitches and opening me up. He pulled something from my lungs. Then He grabbed a small white ball and put it in my injured knee.The ball was absorbed into my knee. I then woke up with my knee and lungs (asthma) healed." [Later Brayden was able to test it by running, jumping and swimming; he hadn't been able to do that before. Also, earlier on the weekend that someone spoke a word over Him that he world dance to worship the Lord one day, and now he can!]"
ETHAN KEFFER & HEATHER FORTUNE: "We want to express how thankful we are and how blessed we feel by the ministry of Deeper Life at SBC!... The relationship feels like family.... You, as a ministry and our brothers and sisters, hold a very special place in our hearts and prayers even from a distance!... Love, Ethan and Heather!"
JOSH PARKMAN: "In the summer of 2019 I drove out to the ministry centre for my first night of volunteering. I felt a stronger sense of 'coming home' than I had ever felt about any person, place, or thing in my life, even though I had never been out to visit Deeper Life yet. A year and a half later, the Lord lead me out here to start a new chapter of my life as staff, and He has been faithful in leaving nothing for me to doubt in the process."
"I had been fasting and praying for the staff retreat weekend with Marty and Austin. It was the second day, and while the summer staff that was there were eating lunch, me and Austin took the time to seek the Lord. With a very intense, and what seemed to be increasing time with Holy Spirit, I invited them to come join us as those moments are so special. Once they entered the room, we prayed for the three of them. Two of them fell out into amazing encounters with the Lord and the other was getting downloads and lost in praise.... The Lord reminded me He was the one to blame and nothing I did caused any of that (always good to get a humbling reminder from the Spirit). Then we all enjoyed more time of worship and prophesying over one another and sharing what happened over the past couple hours. It’s so amazing When the King can cause everything to stop and all we can do is praise Him!"
RAIANE WAGNER, after a car accident:
"Levi prayed for my neck to heal and it felt as if there was burning/heat on my neck, I am now able to lift my neck up and look at the ceiling. It still hurts but I feel better, I feel 60% healed."
JUANITA THEISS: "I was struggling with not feeling approved of and I wasn't sure that I was where God wanted me to be, so I asked two friends to pray with me. Before I shared anything with them, one friend had a vision. She saw me standing at a cliff looking around and searching for Jesus, eager to find Him, hungry for Him. I kept going up to the cliff and looking over. I was waiting for God to do something. He was actually standing behind me. He was telling me that He approves of me, I was in the right place, and there was nothing that I could ever do to change His opinion of me. He was waiting for me to jump off the cliff and when I would, He would be behind me and I would fall and then glide and He would have me. I had to jump, even though I was fearful and it might be uncomfortable . . . and then I would sore! At that moment, I was hit with such freedom and peace that all I could do is weep. I went through some prayers with the two of them for some other struggles and I can say that Jesus has completely freed me. He has given me such peace and I know that I always have His unconditional love and approval! "
