Letter: Delivered from Depression

Your ministry has been a blessing to us. First through “Handbook to Happiness “and Ins and Out of Rejection,” then through Bill and Annabel Gillham’s “exchanged life” course. I had been condemned through psychology to a lifetime disease of manic depression and schizophrenia. I have been medication free for six years and have no more symptoms!

I need to learn how to share this with others. Our family has been revolutionized by the Life of Christ [Rom. 5:10] and we very much desire to help others. We see tremendous need all around us. Please pray for us.

Indwelt and in Him, to His Glory,

Brian (Oklahoma)

New Motorsport Club

Michael McKnight attended the Grace Fellowship training in March, 2012.   He has been riding motorcycles for many years. How was he to share the message of the Abiding Life with others? (He’s the tall one in the middle:-)

GFI_March_12Recently Michael started a motorsport club called Grace Heart Fellowship. Steve Phinney and John Woodward have joined and received this patch:

Knowing This…

Knowing This…

Ken and Sherry Callaway came to Grace Fellowship for training in 2012. They have now formed “Knowing This Ministries” in Gonzales, Texas based on Romans 6:6: “Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Christ…”

Our vision is to disciple, teach, coach, walk alongside people (spirit of Barnabas), to lead people to the only One that can “illuminate”(Eph 1:17-18) their minds, so they may “reckon/consider” (Rom 6:11; Col 2:6) the truth of Galatians 2:20 and Romans 6:6. THEN, “appropriate” this truth (John 15:4,5; Col. 1:27) so that God may be glorified! (Col. 3:17)

Our passion is centered on relationships. We have a passion to teach people who they really are! –what their “true identity” in Christ is! We are passionate to help missionaries and churches to be all Jesus wants them to be. We have a desire to watch in awe, as a person surrenders their heart to Christ and then be honored to be present as they learn the “Abundant Life” as Jesus taught us in John 10:10!

Ken and Sherry are seeing God lead struggling people out of the wilderness into the Promised Land of the Abiding Life. They are available locally to provide personal ministry and a one day seminar.

Internship in South Africa

Amanda W. attended the Grace Fellowship Conference and Workshop last March. To get more biblical counseling experience, she has gone to Grace Fellowship’s counselor/trainers in South Africa–Hendrick and Nehlsie DeBruto. God is transforming lives there through the Christ-centered personal ministry there. Pray for their work, known as “Curare.”  Nehlsie’s talk, Discovering God’s Role for Women is online here.

Communion and the Exchanged Life

 

1corinthians10_16At the conclusion of our Grace Fellowship Workshops we usually take the opportunity to worship God and affirm our fellowship by partaking of the Lord’s Supper together. For some participants, a grace approach to this ordinance has breathed new vitality into Communion. In an article in Minnesota’s Christian Examiner, Dr. Gloria Wiese observes that  “Communion Reminds Us of the Exchanged Life.”
