"I was truly blessed at Regional Convention..."
To the members and leadership of The Church of God,

I just want to say that this year's regional convention was a blessing from the Lord. The messages were all anointed and the presence of the Lord was there in such a sweet and powerful way. 

My family and I have been seeking direction from the Lord for a long time. I can honestly say that we got the direction we needed during regional convention. The Lord seemed to speak through every message and auxiliary boost. I cannot tell you what it has meant to us to be in the presence of the Lord or the fellowship and sincerity of the saints.

We wept before the Lord. We rejoiced in the Spirit. We laughed until our sides hurt. We fellowshipped with old friends and made so many new ones. We hugged and prayed together and left feeling as if we had just been to the best reunion ever. We haven't stopped talking about it for days.

Thank you all so much, and thank God for The Church of God!

Your sister in Christ,
Janet Blakely O'Brien

"Men's Retreat really opened my eyes to God's direction for my life and family."

Men's Retreat really opened my eyes to God's direction for my life and family. I knew that I should be doing more, but it is so easy to get into a rut and become all to comfortable with the way things are.

This year's men's retreat was exactly what I needed. The Lord really spoke to me about my life. The theme was right on the mark and I truly believe that each of the messages--not to mention the classes--were inspired by God. Every word that was spoken held such weight and direction, as if it came from the very throne of God. 

I also want to thank all of the men for their prayers and support. Our prayer times were wonderful, and after hearing the other men share and provide council, I no longer feel alone. I know that there is an army of men in this region who have my back. I know that they will be there for me, as we move forward with God's plan for each of our families, local churches, and for the Northwest Region.

Sincerely,

 James Blankenship

"Ladies Retreat brought renewal to my soul. I'm already making plans for next year!"

Sis. Barker:

I just want to say that this year's Ladies Retreat brought renewal to my soul. I'm already making plans for next year!

It was such a blessing to be able to get away from all of the craziness in my life and be with other women who understand what it like being a busy mother and wife, with never enough time to get everything day before the next day or week begins.

I have never felt so close to the women in our region. Thanks for laughing with me, praying with me, sharing with me and sometime even crying with me.

Warmest regards and appreciation,
Sonya M.

"God never ceases to amaze me..."

The Lord has been doing some amazing things in my life. Following a revival at our local church, my family has been drawing closer to the Lord. My husband has started attending more faithfully and even praying with me in the evenings. I can't tell you what this has meant to me. My times of personal devotion with the Lord have been so much deeper and richer than I ever remember them. What's more, I'm seeing prayers answered on a weekly basis. God never ceases to amaze me, and it has gotten to where I wake up every day with a sense of excitement to find out what God is going to do in my life that day. What started as a revival in our local church has become a revival in my family, as well as in my personal life.  Praise be to God for what He has done and what He is surely going to do in the days ahead!

"The presence and Spirit of the Lord was so powerful! I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for His Church!"

Northwest Region Youth Camp was awesome! It was such a blessing to see all of the children--mine, included--get so much from the Lord. I can't tell you how it moved my heart to see all of them in the altar at the end of the services, their eyes filled with tears as God delivered them and gave them direction for their lives. 

Some of the girls gathered around each other in small groups to pray with each other. They wept. They hugged each other. Some of the older ones even led the younger ones in seeking the Lord. My heart just melted.

And then, to see the glow of the Lord on their faces and their hands raised toward Heaven as they worshiped God. It was a marvelous sight to behold. I only wish that camp could last for so much longer.

The presence and Spirit of the Lord was so powerful! I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for His church! With a group of young people like the ones I saw during this youth camp, the future will be a bright one, indeed! Praise the Lord!

In Christ,

Judi Stevens

A Few Brief Testimonials

God is moving mightily in our local church, during services. Several family members have come to the Lord. Some have even been delivered from addiction. We're seeing growth in so many ways. Praise the Lord for what He is doing here in Portland, Oregon.

Jonathan Truman

After five years of praying night and day, my grown daughter accepted the Lord last Sunday. She said she wants to start coming to church with her children. I feel like the Lord just wrapped His arms around me and said, "Hey, I've been listening the whole time. I've just been working it all out." Every time I think about my daughter in the altar, asking Jesus into her heart, the tears begin to flow and the warmth of God's love wells up in me all over again. He's so good and so very faithful.

Jennifer Simon

Another prayer answered. My Mom and Dad joined the Church last month, and I've never seen them so happy.

Cori Hines

Praise the Lord! My wife and I have been separated for almost four years, but through much prayer and fasting--by others at my local church as well as by friends and family members--we have started seeing each other again. The feelings are still there, and I have every hope that the Lord will reconcile our marriage. I thank God everyday for the miracle he has worked, both in myself and in my marriage. Thank you all for your prayers.

Collin M. Thomas

We had six new people in church on Sunday, and one family wants us to hold Bible studies in their home. Our pastor has been truly inspired in his messages and the prayer meetings we've been having at his house are paying off. I see great things ahead. The Lord is showing us what He will do when we diligently seek Him.
