My name is Jocelyn Agpalo. This is a picture of me and my husband, Arthur. I was born in southeast Asia in the northern Philippines. When I was twenty one years old we moved to Guam, then in June of 2001 we moved here to Oregon. My family and I are now US citizens and permanent residents of the USA.
I have earned a Medical Technology college degree while living in the Philippines, and another Early Childhood Education and English Literature college degrees while staying in Guam for almost 20 years. But most of all earning a bachelor, master, and a doctorate degree in Christian ministry and counseling are the kind of education that I have been waiting for all my life. Taking courses at CLU fill up the missing parts in and on me.
I now work as a translator and an interpreter most especially on the medical fields to the entire United States of America and to all United States territories. I am also a freelance writer and most of the things that I am thanking of is the opportunity that God uses me in his ministry to translate His English written books into my languages of expertise which are in Tagalog and in Ilocano, on which I am now doing with CLU.
Having a Doctoral Degree from CLU empowered me to do whatever missions and testimonies whom God has placed in my heart to fulfill His ministries here on earth. God has blessed me so much to be expert in three languages so that I could connect the bridges that serve as a gap into four areas of the world.

“Throughout my 29 years as a Christian, I have developed my spiritual senses and have heard the Lord’s voice speaking to me in many ways. I have journaled through the years, recording dreams, prophetic words, revelations, and impressions the Lord gave me. However, the course, ‘How to Hear God’s Voice’, had a powerful impact on my walk with the Lord and truly took me to a new level. I now strongly desire to share this valuable and powerful message with anyone who desires to walk in such an intimate relationship with the Lord that every day becomes an adventure!”

Mike Bastien - I gave my life to Jesus at the age of 17. I was born into a large family of 9 children, with 6 boys and 3 girls, I was the 4th born. After a few years I felt called to the ministry and went to Bible College and graduated 3 years later. I met my wife Jeanie there, and we got married a year later in 1984.
In 1999, when I was pastoring a church in Northern Ontario, I met Mark Virkler at a Leadership Training Course in Toronto and began this wonderful journey of learning to hear God’s voice. Hearing and seeing God over the many years has been profound and life changing. Jesus, the Lover of my soul continues to amaze me with His unwavering love and commitment to me, even at times when I was tempted to believe He should cast me away.
I began taking courses with CLU in 2001, but life got in the way and layed that aside for quite some years. Now, I am working toward completing my bachelor’s degree and then my Masters…and we will see from there.
Over the years, I have pastored churches, been involved in missions to the Arctic, to South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mexico and India. Mark Virkler and I put together a book on sexuality, with many of my journaling’s. Also, Jeanie and I are involved in a worldwide marriage ministry where we do marriage weekends for troubled marriages.
It is my deep and sincere desire to see Jesus, knowing that the more I see Him, the more I will become like Him.
Why I have chosen to be a Mentor Coach - Jesus said, “Freely you have received, freely give”. It is my sincere desire to pour into the lives of people and to help each and everyone to grow in grace and in the wonderful knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus. To see the Body of Christ to grow and come into an intimate relationship with Him, to get to know His heartbeat for us personally and then share it with the world.
It is amazing, to watch a brother or sister to blossom, to come out and be what God has called them to be. To see them hear the voice of God for themselves and to believe what God is saying, rather than what we have believed about ourselves and God over the many years, is simply breathtaking.

I have attained my Bachelors of Science Degree of Ministry through Christian Leadership University. The course 'How To Hear God's Voice' has better enabled me to hear and know the voice of my heavenly Father. I was hungry for more of God, and on August 19th, of 2004 Jesus Baptized me with His Holy Ghost. Since that time, my relationship with God has been revolutionized. He has placed in me a desire to help other believers to become confident in hearing His voice...because He says, "His sheep hear His voice; and the voice of a stranger they will not hearken to." God desires to speak, we just have to learn to listen.

"Mark and Patti Virkler's teaching on Hearing God's Voice has revolutionized my ministry since 1999. As a Christian since childhood, there were times when I knew the direction that the Lord wanted me to go and I was blessed when I chose that path.

I am excited to lead others into hearing His voice in small groups, individual counseling, retreats and 'How to Hear God's Voice' workshops. When we hear God speak and we know it is Him speaking, He transforms our lives. He brings the healing, guidance and the encouragement we need. We grow to love the Lord more when we regularly experience this two-way fellowship with Him."

I have been in active ministry since 1977. The Lord has directed me to move in the ministry of faith and grace through the gifting of teaching and prophecy. As I listen to God, under His direction, I can teach others how to listen and recognize His "voice". The "Four Keys" invoke communication with God for a fuller and more personal relationship with our Abba Father.
The "Four Keys" have affected my life by bringing realization of a personal God, Abba Father, not a supreme being waiting to point His finger and shoot. I have found the love of God--a relationship with two way communication. He answers me in the still small voice of the evening quiet; or the roar and rush of the noon day schedule. God IS with us always, not a shout away but here, within, leading, guiding, speaking each moment of the day that we desire to listen. Everyone can enhance their relationship with God, by learning and implementing the "Four Keys" in their daily life. As simple as the keys are, they impact our lives remarkably. Habakkuk 2:1,2 states, "I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he has to say to me, and what answer I am to give to this complaint. Then the Lord replied: "Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it." We are to watch, wait, listen, and write down what the Lord has to say to us.

Ordained two years ago at St. Luke Tabernacle Community Church, pastor, the Rev. Dr. James Evans Jr., Rev. Cole serves on the Ministerial Council as an Associate Minister of J/P IAMM 4U (Jail/Prison Intercessory and Mentoring Ministry for Youth/and Adults).

I am encouraged and excited about teaching this gospel to populations where there is a true hunger and thirst for God! I dare not limit God, so where ever God leads me to bring this teaching, I am whole-hearted and committed to go!"
Rev. Cole is a graduate of CUNY Brooklyn College and is presently in the CLU Masters program. Blessed to have broad experiences as a community activist and organizer, performing artist in theatre and poetry, she connects the dots between culture and community sharing gifts in the anointed word, writing, preaching and teaching.

We are Tony and Margaret Cornell, retired pastors of Ely Christian Fellowship in Ely Cambridgeshire in England. This church is now called “Lighthouse.”
Back in 1986 I saw an advert in an American Christian magazine about Bible School courses. At this time I had been pastoring a small growing church unpaid for just over 4 years, but it was now time for me to resign from my teaching post and pastor full time. It was my longing to teach the Bible rather than Physics and Mathematics. So I personally worked through a course then called "Communion with God"
I was astounded! . It introduced me to journaling and put all I had wanted to express about walking closely with the Holy Spirit and personal spiritual development so clearly.
Our vision for our new church was one where the Holy Spirit led and all the people were filled and flowing with the Spirit. How do you teach and encourage that? In the first months of my new position I persuaded a group from the church to come to our Bible School and go through Communion with God with me. What a transformation! We took 22 weeks to go through the course, as I still needed to assimilate the material so that I could teach and model it. At the same time we embarked on the Bible Survey material - our church centred Bible School was born.
Over 30 years later I know that the initial contact with Mark was a God arranged event which has impacted our lives greatly
Margaret and I are now busy teaching people to hear God in the church we attend now and find it a great joy to run weekend "4 keys Seminars" and other courses for churches and groups in many places in the UK and Europe.
We are now Mark Virkler’s representatives in the U.K.
We also stock and sell much of Mark’s materials which you can find and purchase from our web site:
Dale Cresap has been actively involved in the Christian Community in Idaho Falls for 34 years. He sends out a daily inspirational note and wants to assist others in learning to hear God’s voice better for themselves. Dale learned to hear God’s voice gradually in a wandering journey that took 30 years. About 10 years ago he attended a seminar by Mark Virkler whose life work has been to develop and teach an approach to this important topic that anyone can follow. Mark and Dale have since become friends and Dale’s daily messages appear on Mark’s ministry website, Communion With God. Mark has encouraged Dale to teach his material and he is eager to find groups of any size who want to learn this valuable skill.
Dr. Phillip E. Davis Sr. and Dr. Gwendolyn C. Davis
Lord, what do you want to tell me today?
The Lord's response: "Phillip, you have been remised in your journaling and seeking my face over the past few weeks. Thou shalt have no other god before me. Don't concern yourself with things of this world. Don't busy yourself with matters over which you have no control. I know your needs before you ask. I know how to provide for your needs. I will provide those things that you don't even know that you need. Trust in me and I will set you free. . . . "
Yes it is true, God knows His sheep and His sheep hears His voice! We can show you how to have a two-way dialogue with Almighty God. We "invite you to experience an exciting dimension of prayer" that will change your perspective on talking to and hearing from God, forever.
Phil has been facilitating seminars for over 30 years, both in the business arena and in God's arena. He and his wife of over 40 years, Gwendolyn, recently established The Sandhills Community Ministry wherein their mission is to equip "the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God,. . . ." Eph. 4:12-13.
Phil is ordained to the work of the Gospel Ministry by the authority and order of the North Carolina College of Theology.

Paul and Sofia Garrett love hearing God’s voice and watching others connect with Him directly. They are from Costa Rica where they ministered in the workplace and in the church throughout their married life.
In 2000 they took a sabbatical and went to the TACF School of Ministry Heart Module where they met Mark Virkler and learned CWG, Prayers that Heal the Heart and much about the Father’s heart. Following that they became tentmaking missionaries in Costa Rica where they set up a ministry school at their local church and established Communion with God and Prayers that Heal the Heart as a foundation. They later went to be missionaries in Mexico sowing God’s seed there as they studied the Word and went on many mission trips to different states.
They currently do their journaling in San José, Costa Rica where they both work as associate pastors of Iglesia Unión (www.IglesiaUnion.net), a prophetic church that loves the River.

I accepted Jesus as my Savior and Lord in 1982. I loved getting to know the Lord. I read through the Bible several times with my children but after about 20 years the Bible seemed so dry. I felt there was so much more to receive but I didn't know how to get there, kind of deep sea fishing from a dingy! So I tried different versions of the Bible, reading commentaries, Bible on tapes, cd, vhs, different pastors and churches all of which left me feeling dry and frustrated! One day as I was sharing this with a friend she invited me to a Bible study that was featuring Mark Virkler's How To Hear God's Voice program so I went.
My heart lept within me as I listened to Mark's presentation, he assured me that God was still alive and well and as thrilled to speak to me as I was to hear from Him! (God had been speaking to me the whole time but I didn't know how to hear!) The greatest part was that it was ALL Biblically based, You cannot imagine my excitement! Unknown to me my husband had been feeling the same way spiritually and when he watched the dvds he was sold out.
Using the methods that we have learned in this program we are experiencing a richer more intimate relationship with God, each other, the body of Christ and on and on it grows!
I have been journaling now for a little over a year and I notice that every few months it seems like the Lord elevates me to another level of understanding and spiritual growth. When I read His word and don't understand I ask God and He shows me what it means and how to apply it to my life. A real one on one ministry- the best way to grow! My husband and I sense God calling us to start a Home Church, hopefully within the next year and the primary teaching will be How To Hear The Voice Of God. I CAN'T WAIT TO TELL THE WORLD!

Thank God for His unfailing Love!
I started my life living for the pleasure of myself. A “too much for me” life event happened in 1994 which led me to seek God. 3 years later in 1997 I accepted Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior at the age of 30. Immediately upon accepting Jesus I no longer felt guilty or condemned. I was so grateful to God that I purposed to live my life for Him, desiring to please Him and “pay Him back” so to speak.
I spent the following 8+ years in a church that taught me much about submission, evangelism and the need to live a life without sin. I served in this church as much as was allowed. Outside the church building I led many to Salvation.
Something was still missing. Although saved and “working” for God I was not happy or joyful. I had the hope of heaven someday but I found doing the Christian life too hard.
In December 2006 I met Holy Spirit and was baptized in His Spirit. At this point I realized I had been missing a someone, Holy Spirit, not something. This encounter gave me a new sense of love and hope in my heart. A love and hope that was for me now. I began to sense and feel God’s presence. I knew I was feeling and experiencing true love for the first time.
I began attending a new spirit-filled church where I hoped to rest and heal. I soon began to realize I needed help - internally. My heart hurt and my mind was tormented. In 2008, through this church, my path crossed with someone who recognized the state I was in and referred me to the teaching of Dr. Virkler. I accepted that leading and immediately enrolled In Dr. Virkler’s school.
The first two courses I took were How To Hear God’s Voice and then Prayers that Heal the Heart. It took me two years to get through these two courses; these two years are my inner healing journey. I was overcome with the love of God through hearing His voice. Two-way journaling was the vehicle that quieted my mind enough to hear God’s still small voice. I began to know Him intimately. I received revelation and truth. I could hear and be with God now! He loves me now! I am worthy to hear him! I am worthy to be with Him! I have been forgiven of my past! He delights in me! My past doesn’t define who I am! I don’t need to “work” to please Him! I was being healed and delivered by hearing the truth!!
I continued as a student under Dr. Virkler and later graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Christian counseling with a focus on divine healing.
To this day I remain passionate about the voice of God and the importance of personal inner healing. I long for God’s children to know their Heavenly Father loves them unconditionally, to understand who they are in Christ, to understand the love and acceptance that comes through knowing Jesus personally and intimately and to understand that by the name and authority of Jesus we have victory and authority over the enemy and accuser of our soul - satan and his team. No child of God needs to live with a broken heart or a tormented mind. We have won!!
I love God Because he first loved me. Because I have been forgiven so much I ask God to help me love much.
I have remained at the same church for the past 15 years. I am currently a member of the elder board and involved in ministry with women, prayer, counseling and deliverance.
I am grateful to say that my husband of 34 years Bruce has also accepted Jesus. We have one son Cody, who accepted Jesus at a young age and has grown up in the church.
I am healed, whole and so blessed. To God be all the glory!

Prophetess Dr. Shaloma Gray has been hearing from the Lord for over twenty years. She has delivered God’s word of deliverance, healing, hope, understanding, and life to many. She has received prophecies that have shown life, death, and resurrection. Shaloma has received over one hundred dreams and visions from God that have foretold direction and events of the future of many individuals, including her own life. Shaloma confirms God’s faithfulness to His people and proclaims God’s desire to speak with His children today!
“Everyone has a journey that will lead to the very vision of God. It is crucial that God’s people hear what He has to say about their own individual journeys. God holds the map to your journey and the details that are imperative to you making it to the end. How can we know how to make it unless we HEAR FROM GOD?”

“Good Morning Lord, This is Your Day, I am Your child, Please show me Your way.”
This is how I often begin my devotional time with my Lord. I delight to hear what He wants to say to me and the direction He has for me each day. And any time I am unsure about something, I just go to Him and He guides me. He asks me to Trust Him.
Since discovering that I could actually hear the Voice of God in my heart and that He truly wanted to speak to me if I would only take the time to listen, my desire has been that everyone would know this. My husband Larry and our daughter Anna have also discovered this wonderful gift of hearing the Voice of God every morning before beginning their days. We would like to share with as many who would listen how Hearing the Voice of God has changed our lives and how they too can hear His Voice.
I am not the most organized of persons and so one of the things the Lord does for me each morning is give me a goal for the day, a list of things that I should get done. This is very helpful to me and He makes sure I don’t forget anything. My time is used well and there is enough time to get it done.

Carol Guttman has been a lifelong learner in the school of the Holy Spirit and speaks with an enthusiasm anchored on the promises of God. 2 Peter 1:1-21 is one of her favorite scripture verses and Carol actively seeks and desires to become a partaker of the divine nature of Christ, sit at the feet of Jesus, learn from Him, and lead others into the incredible delights of knowing Him through journaling. Carol says she journaled sporadically prior to 3/31/03 but the Holy Spirit challenged her long before that date with these words: "Eternal life is to Me, the one true God, and Jesus Christ whom I have sent. But do you know me?" John 17:3. Rocked by this challenge, then the Lord asked Carol "Would you not spend one hour with Me daily?" Under heavy conviction Carol began to seek His face to really know Him and spend that one hour with Him daily. Carol still journals every day and says they are love letters to the Lord which He answers with His love letters back. She says this time with the Lord is very precious and is the most important time of her day. Prior to learning this it was a one-way conversation as Carol did almost all the talking and hardly ever really heard the Lord's voice. Now she knows what it means to be quiet before the Lord, focus on Jesus, listen to the Lord's spontaneous voice, and write what she sees and hears.

Gbadamassi Hansindé Inoussa is the founder and General Coordinator of a Mission based in TOGO (West Africa) named ‘Ministère la Vaillante Armée du Christ’ (The Valiant Army of Christ): V.A.C. Created in 1991, this Mission is working with all Christian Evangelical denominations in areas like: Training, Evangelism, Church planting and Social Projects.
I recognize that Communion With God is a principle in the Kingdom of God and that this teaching which is a blessing to me must be passed to others so that the will of God must be accomplished. My vision is to make every Christian a leader in their area of action. How to Hear God’s voice is one of the foundational things which can make a Christian to be a leader. Since learning Communion With God, I have taught the four keys to hearing God’s Voice. Our conferences have these themes: Goal setting, how to receive direction from God, the anointing makes the difference, Communion with God, Administration of the Church. For example this year 2006 (from November 2005 to November 2006), we held 13 Conferences and Seminars for 997 Pastor and Christian leaders; we taught 3790 Christians in churches about how to evangelize their area. In all these, we emphasized the importance to hear God’s voice and how they can do it.

Sister Audrey Jones and her husband Christopher Jones are founders of Voice of Deliverance Outreach Ministries. They currently strive to work and reach those OUTSIDE the church walls. “We want to bring the word of God to the streets, corners, and to save the lost. Our approach is if they won’t come to God, then we will bring God to them.” Then through prayer and study, I will bring them to learn and know how to hear from God.
God has called me to teach His word, and though I am new to this, I am very eager to learn all that God has to show me. I believe the wife of a minister is to work right along side him, and that when God called one to do His will, He called the spouse as well.
I have taught Bible Study to teen and middle school age children, and have begun showing them how to hear from God.
I believe that everyone should be able to discern and hear God. God has helped me to be a better help to others, and I want to share this blessing by teaching them how to hear from their Father. A lot of Christians, as well as myself, don’t take the time to hear God, but by becoming STILL, and QUIET, we CAN.

Raised Baptist, I have always had a strong love for the Bible and the stories written in it. I continued my activities in the church and participated in various ministries and outreaches. Then came the faith movement and the infilling of the Holy Spirit. The Lord spoke personally to me and called and anointed me to the ministry of healing by the laying on of hands. I sought for a school and avenue that would help develop the ministry gift I had been assigned by the Lord, and found CLU. I am currently a student at CLU majoring in Divine Healing.
I have worked in the furniture industry and sales for many years and continue to be a messenger of God’s miraculous healing power by the laying on of hands and prayer.

My name is George Medellin. Learning to hear God’s voice changed my life. For many years, I pursued God all the ways I knew: Bible reading, Bible study, Bible memorization, fasting, accountability groups, Christian colleges, and Christian graduate schools. I also served as a pastor at a Pentecostal church… and could not hear God’s voice. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zero. The Lord led me in 2011 to Mark and Patti’s book, Prayers that Heal the Heart, which had about four pages in an appendix about hearing God’s voice. This seemed important, so I bought Four Keys to Hearing God’s Voice and devoured it.
One day, as I was working alone praying, I said aloud, “Jesus.” A spontaneous thought came to my mind that I knew was not my own, “Yes, George.” I exclaimed, “It’s Him! It’s Jesus! He answered me! He spoke to me!” I don’t remember if I responded back to him, but I do know that I spent the rest of that day joyful, singing praises to God, thankful that I heard His voice. That experience showed me two things: 1) I did not believe God heard my prayers, and 2) if He did hear me, God would not answer. I saw that I was an unbelieving Believer.
Since that experience almost six years ago, I journal daily, sometimes multiple times, and have learned to see Jesus with me or with others wherever I go. I’ve also grown in the spiritual gifts of prophecy, healing the sick, and want to share hearing God’s voice with everyone I meet. God healed many wounds in my life through hearing His voice and Prayers that Heal the Heart. I am not the man I used to be.
My education includes a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Science degree. I’m also pursuing a Doctor of Ministry degree with Christian Leadership University. My wife and I, Wendy, have been married almost 20 years and we have two human kiddos and two fury ones.

Kelli O'Neill has been a Christian for nine years, and for nearly six of those she had a burning desire to know the answer to the question "How do you know when God is speaking to you?" After six years of asking that question to different churches, leaders, and other individual Christians, God navigated her steps to create a divine meeting with some individuals who opened her eyes to greater depths in the Lord. This resulted in her finding Christian Leadership University, where she is now pursuing her Masters degree.
Traveling through the course "Communion with God" (now titled "How to Hear God's Voice") revolutionized her walk with the Lord, and as a result, she has had more spiritual growth in the last three years than all of the first six years put together. She believes that "How to Hear God's Voice" is a course that every Christian should take. It is vital that anyone who comes to know the Lord through the Cross and His salvation must learn to hear His voice in order to grow spiritually and to accomplish all He has destined for them. Part of her burning desire in life is to teach others how to hear Him for themselves.

My wife, Myrna, and I have been missionaries, mainly in South Africa, for 15 years through our ministry, Glory Power Ministries (GPM). GPM takes care of orphans and the destitute (including having a farm to feed them), has six churches, a community center and a small Bible Institute - where we teach “4 Keys to Hearing God’s Voice” and other CLU courses remotely.
Our base is here in the U.S. now, with our local staff running things more in South Africa while I oversee the ministry there. Prior to becoming a missionary, I was an Electrical Engineer for years.
I received my Master of Divinity and Doctoral degrees from CLU. Since taking the 4 Keys class years ago, journaling has been an integral, daily part of my life. I cannot imagine life now without communing with God. Intimacy with God is virtually like the air I breathe.
I believe that hearing God’s voice and living by His visions are the greatest gifts after salvation and that it is ABSOLUTELY God’s will for every human being. Jesus lived ONLY by saying what He heard the Father say and doing what He saw the Father do through visions in His heart. How much more should we live like that?
I believe that ALL of us want to hear God tell us how much He loves us and really desire to be filled with His perfect love. Also, we all want to know why He did not answer our prayers the way we wanted. And most of us want to know God’s will for our lives. We CAN know ALL of these by learning the 4 Keys teaching.
A key to living a fulfilled and abundant life is to do what we are passionate about. I AM passionate about teaching 4 Keys to the world since it has RADICALLY changed me for the better by knowing God’s will for my life, understanding He wants the best for me, having my heart healed by being filled more with His perfect love and much more. I believe that it will do the same for you!

My heart is to guide others on their path of discovering ways that they hear God and experience Him. I have had a personal relationship with Him and spent much time with Jesus as a very young child. During the course of my life, I drifted and started to try to live life on my own but God‘s hand was always upon me and eventually He got my full attention once again. During that time, I forgot how personal God was and how much He wanted to communicate with me.
Through this course and other vital experiences, I have not only discovered hearing God and experiencing Him but my communion with Him has increased throughout my daily life. I have had the pleasure to share with others at work, with cell members, with children in my neighborhood, and with family members that they also can hear God and He wants to talk with them. It is my desire to see more people develop their relationship with God by recognizing His voice, seeing His dreams, discovering His ideas and the personal way He converses with them. I believe through their personal time with God, they will be drawn into a deeper relationship with Him and through this, their lives, families, and communities will be transformed.

Sandy Zondervan, as part of her role at Revival Fires and Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship Partners in Harvest Equipping teams, brings training to churches in the UK and elsewhere. She carries a fire of passion for Jesus. Through her prophetic teaching, preaching and practical seminars, she awakens and sets fire to the call inside each of us to live life to the fullest, to come to our senses, to step out in our God given authority, destiny and inheritance and to see joy and adventure restored. Sandy came to the United Kingdom to be part of Revival Fires in January 2003. She had been an active staff member for seven years at the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship. While there, she was tremendously impacted by a powerful move of the Holy Spirit. She also spent several years being trained with Youth With A Mission, a Christian mission organization founded by Loren Cunningham. Sandy then went on to help co-lead discipleship training schools, counseling schools and mission teams in both America, Europe and in Asia. Sandy has her roots in the rural farmlands of Guelph, Ontario, Canada.
It was great, as a church, to go through the Hearing God’s Voice seminar together. Sandy delivered the weekend sensitively and the teaching was appropriate to our own needs as a church. Everyone really appreciated the opportunity to go deeper and we were excited to discover how easy it is to hear God speaking to us. We are more confident now about sharing what we are hearing. One person in particular had struggled so much in the past to hear God’s voice for himself. Over the weekend, he heard God and has continued to hear God speak to him regularly. It has totally changed his relationship and has restored a passion that he felt he had lost forever.
