Who would have guessed what God can do in ten years time and continues to do...Praise His Name of Jesus! When I first
came to revival services in April of 2005, I was a mess. I had recently been released from the psychiatric ward and was on
many medications, disability, and still looking for the miracle "happy pill." Through revival services, I found
Jesus. Not like He was lost, but I was. Once I found Him, I followed Him, throughout the State of Maine, to Pennsylvania,
Ohio, Colorado, taking vacation time, whatever it took for I knew I had to be at these services and God allowed me to be there...Praise
God transformed my life through these revival services and by my own hearing and obeying what the Spirit had to
say. God took me out of the miry clay and brought me into being His Child. Revival services helped me to become open to
what God truly wanted to be in my life, from death to self to living in Him every day. God took me through a Calling, Schooling
at Nazarene Bible College, and to Associate Pastor, all along these two mentors of mine were open and available to assist
in questions I had or just a listening ear. They helped keep me on my feet, as I knew I couldn't do what God asked but they
knew I could, with God's help of course. They helped me filter through much information given, remaining true to the God
who is, and they assisted in a time when God called me on, remaining faithful to Him. I continually remained open to God's
will through the years and then God allowed Living in the Cross Ministry to birth a new ministry that I am blessed to be a
part of-Women Encouraging Women Ministry, whereby I share more of my story as to why I ended up where I did in my life and
minister to those God gives. Praise God! He is Good!
I give all Praise, Honor and Glory for God sending this ministry
to my town, at just the right time and for the journey it has and is and will continue to take me on. Thank you Jesus and
thank you Chuck and Lisa...love ya dearly...and the journey continues in Christ...J.J.
I have been a Christian my whole life, but never
really understood what that meant until I started going to the Nazarene Church. I lived with anger and bitterness in my heart
and a lot of the time used alcohol to bury those feelings. I felt like everyone was against me, even the people that love
me the most and I frequently lashed out at those people and pushed them away. On April 4, 2010 I went to Revival services
and I really listened and took it all in, but I was still hesitant because I knew that God would show what was in my heart
to Pastor Chuck and he would point it out to me and everyone around me. I went back the next night knowing that I was done
living how I had been living and I was ready to lay it down. I went down to the altar as Pastor Chuck was praying for everyone
around me I started to get scared that he was going to forget me and I wanted it so bad I was ready to chase him down the
aisle on my broken foot. He finally got to me very last, but he didn't say what I thought he was going to. What he said to
me went to the very root of all my anger, bitterness and unhappiness and literally ripped it right out of me. I cried all
night that night and all the next day. I have never felt such immense sorrow in my life. I did not understand at the time
why I felt so sad but now I know. God was healing me. I woke up the next morning terrified that I would still be consumed
with sadness, but it was the exact opposite, all I felt was overwhelming JOY. All those awful feelings I had kept bottled
inside me where completely gone! I had forgiven people that I never imagined I would ever forgive. That day my whole life
changed. Yes, there have been bad days when some of those old feelings return, but only on the days I am living in self. The
moment I wake up and remember to die to self and live in Jesus it all goes away again and JOY returns. I could literally write
a book on the many ways God has blessed me in the last 6 months. I am in complete awe of it all, He is so Amazing! Ebony Cortez,
God is Good. I think
it's got me fired up for church tomorrow...oh yeah. But it's so true how people come in dragging, doing their part,
and going out the same way they come in. No, no, no. I want to experience Jesus, I want to be fed Jesus, I want
to see Him in every circumstance, and I want that relationship with the Father to just grow. I love Him. I get
all that......except maybe the feeding part. I do rely more on revival for that. I want them to know this is real.
I want reality Jesus.......not theology Jesus. Theology I'll get when I have to take a class, not during service.
Anyway, I won't gripe.....I praise God I have a pastor and a church family. JJ
I am a product of revival and I have been blessed abundantly by the
ministry of the LaCombe's.
In Philippians two, we are called to not only look to the needs of ourselves
but to the needs of others. In the Greek that literally means to put the needs of our brothers before our own.
In "The Message"it says "Put yourself aside and help others get ahead. Don't be obsessed with
getting you own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand"(2:4). Isn't that what Christ
My life and the life of my family will never be the same because of the obedience of these two servants of
My name is Kyle Griffin and God
has radically changed my life through revival and the cross. At a young age I experienced church division, church
fights, and foolishness and all because people weren’t dying to self and letting Jesus live in them. My
heart was torn apart to see what was going on around me.
I experienced revival for the first time in seventh grade where I learned about the cross and who Jesus
really was. He wasn’t about the foolishness I grew up in. I surrendered my life
to Jesus and I will continue to daily. From there I formed an everlasting friendship with Him and He became
my best friend.
My life altering experience:
grown up in a mostly Christian home, going to church every Sunday and Wednesday night, I knew allll about the bible, Jesus
and God…or at least I thought I did. I even participated in Teen Bible Quizzing for years, memorizing
entire books of the bible…and yet it never really stuck with me. In fact, after getting out on my
own at the ripe old age of 18, fresh from High School, I quickly became religiously cynical. I had a lot
of trouble with hypocritical people who tried to tell me right from wrong. I couldn’t understand
why a God who supposedly created this world would allow such horrible, evil things happen to good people all the time.
This led me to about seven years of complete and utter religious-LESS living. In fact…the
more I saw and learned of the world, the less I believed and the more bitter I became….If there was a God, I HATED

I agreed to attend a revival service with
my step-sister Missy. The speaker was an evangelist that had been at my Dad’s church.
I thought I would go to spend quality time with Missy. I found out it was a healing service and
started wondering what I was getting into. Since putting on all of the weight my useless thyroid brought
me, I’ve been very shy about getting up in front of people anywhere. There was NO WAY shy Amy was
getting up in front of a church full of people and having some guy tell her she was healed. Well…after
listening to his mind blowing service, and yes, it was MIND BLOWING…
I did just that, except he never said the words, you’re healed.” He simply prayed for and anointed
me, with Missy, Pastor Mike and Candi all holding onto me tightly. I the cynic actually gave my life to
the Lord right then and there. No more did I focus on hypocrites and things I couldn’t understand and control.
I simply gave it all to Him.
miraculous things happened there in that little church…1) For the first time in a long time, I instantly felt calm
and serene…nothing, no pessimistic thoughts, no worries, NOTHING could bring me down…2) I had actually called
and made a doctor’s appt. because my lymph node, the one covered in cancer was throbbing and swollen. I
was even having trouble swallowing because of it and I was really worried. But…after that service
it instantly quit hurting and felt normal and hasn’t bothered me since.
I don’t understand everything that happened and I am still
trying to figure it all out. All I know is that something incredible happened to me, and I truly feel more
at ease, and more brave than I have in a really long time. I know that I now have the strength to deal
with whatever the future holds for me.
The Jesus in Chuck and Lisa
forever changed the landscape of our lives. Thank you for being who you are~real people with a real love for the Lord! Your
honesty and care touched us deeply and brought us to a new and revived relationship with each other and most importantly with
God! God Bless you! Servants of the most high God, Rae Oxley (aka Joy) and Adam Oxley

God totally healed me, and I am Lyme free!

Chuck was leading a revival service, and I came up for prayer. Chuck came to me and asked for Anthony to bring the
oil. Chuck had only met me a few hours earlier, and only new my name, but did not know about my Lyme disease. That night God
spoke to Chuck and publicly he prayed for the healing of my Lyme disease and annointed me with oil. That night God healed
me completely of the Lyme disease.
At my next doctor's check up, he tested my blood to see where the Lyme disease level
was, which he had done regularly for the previous year--no Lyme disease! No Lyme disease! And years later I am still Lyme
free and giving all the glory to God!"
