Experiences from the New Year 2016 Visit
I am so thankful to God for this trip. It was such a great refreshing, inspiring and encouraging time – a time of spiritual uplift and precious revelations. I heard many words of wisdom that are life changing. This trip was one of the best spiritual experiences I have known. And, of course, it was one of my best New Year celebrations. Celebration of such an event with your brothers and sisters from all over the world is so great!
During the entire time of being at SCOAN we were very well cared for. They helped us and took care of us beyond the call of duty. It once again inspires you to do the same.
Meeting Prophet TB Joshua was such an honour and privilege! I personally experienced what I had heard about before. When you are close to the man of God, you feel the fear of God, a tremulous atmosphere and reverence. And it definitely leads you to a deeper delight and the holy fear of God. Because if the man is like this, with such a spiritual authority, power and with so loving simple heart, then how much more is God? It overwhelms you so much!
Also, I was impressed by the atmosphere of faith which can be felt and seen in the church. It manifests in many details. In words and confessions of the ministers and helpers of the church. In acts. Even inscriptions, paintings, statues (layout and design) express the atmosphere of faith. It inspires you maximally to fill your own life with the atmosphere of faith.
Upon returning home, I have been experiencing a very special breakthrough in my prayer life. I feel a constant inextinguishable appetite for prayer no matter what I do. This is new for me. Before, prayer was more like something demanding discipline and effort from me. Now it is more like an appetite, which I cannot refuse. This is what I like so much.
Also upon returning home I keep seeing the SCOAN in my dreams from time to time. One time there was a dream with Prophet TB Joshua, which I believe is a sign of something good happening in my spirit.
I thank God so much for what is going on right now. And I am looking forward to seeing even much more to move closer to Him and for Him to be glorified!
Again I give a great thanks to God for such a great New Year gift, for such an opportunity to visit such a blessed place!
It was great being at the SCOAN, especially when the prophet came out to bless the people after almost one year. Everything was just great. Things were very organized and none of us had complaints. From the very first day until the end we were taken care of very well.
Going to the prayer mountain on the 1st of Jan 2016 was one of the best experiences we’ve ever had. We started the year with hope. The prayer line experience was amazing! The best thing about visiting SCOAN is that you can literally feel the presence of God 24/7. The church is open day and night and we could go in and spend time with God anytime.
The New Year party was great. We loved the food as well. The volunteers were always there to help. We were well received and we felt very loved at the church. The Sunday service was just too powerful and everything was organized and managed well. We could see that the volunteers working at the church were well trained by the prophet by the grace of God.
Thanks to all of you for coordinating and making this trip a wonderful one. We would always love to come back and spend more time at the SCOAN. We look forward to come back soon.
