SAVED TESTIMONY & MORE THAN CONQUERORS


Since my conversion I have evangelised, witnessing to the glory of
God through his Son Jesus our Saviour and the Power of The Holy
Spirit.

23rd August 1980 My Mother-in-law at the time, had taken the
children off my hands for the weekend, this was the first time this
had happened.  I see now that God had arranged it.  With this
freedom I phoned a friend and said lets meet up, we went to a pub
had a few drinks and listened to the juke box.  I got home that
night, and thought about the evening it was good to be able to have
some time to myself but the things I had yearned for left me feeling
dissatisfied. Years earlier I was a singer in a pop group and the
bright lights had no appeal any more. The following morning, with
the children away the house was tidy, but I pulled out the vacuum
cleaner and began pushing it around , as I have already mentioned I
was a pop singer earlier and would have not been unusual for me to
start singing  songs but God called me in my own home, no-one
invited me to Church.  I started to sing a chorus I had learned 30
years earlier as a child when I had attended a Sunday school at the
Salvation Army, although I do not remember anything other than this
song. I will make you fishers of men if you follow me.  I know God
gave me the song,  I stopped and thought where did that come from,
immediately God breathed in me  with his Holy Spirit  I felt the
urgency to go to church as if my life depended upon it. I thought
well it is Sunday so the Church will be open but what time, who do I
know that goes to Church.


I will mention at this point I had been married previously.

I thought my ex Mother in law goes to Church so rang
her.  The other end of the phone she shouted praise the Lord!!! and
that did not put me off LOL.  We arranged to meet but she had got
the times wrong as there was a guest speaker at the Church and the
service had already began.  The musicians were coming off the
platform when Violet said oh, you would have loved it the music,
they have lovely music trying to encourage me to come again, but God
knew that was not what I was after the old lifestyle.  The room was
full and two chairs where pushed onto the end of a row and we were
against the wall.
The Welsh preacher was the old time type thumping his bible, but
that didn't put me off. Although I was thinking critical things
about him like He's coming on a bit strong, but slapped my wrist and
thought come on, he believes in what he is saying. Just listen.
When the appeal was made saying it don't look to good at the moment
for Jesus could you be like him despised and rejected (thought I can
handle that I'm quite a martyr now with all thing I'm going through
married to alcoholic) then I thought as he talked , when Jesus had
done all that going to the cross, He deserves that I give him honour
(thinking it was just attending church on Sunday) then started
thinking how can I, M-in-law lives far away no-one else to mind the
kids and John won't let me take them to church with my previous
Mother-in-law there. As I was wrestling I felt I was being left
behind I couldn't find a way in my mind how I could go


but the urgency in me was STRONG.

Then GOD TOUCHED ME

He filled me with His Holy Spirit till I was as if in heaven



His love was POURING ALL THROUGH ME I was SATURATED IN PEACE
AND FELT LIKE I WAS THE ONLY ONE THERE WITH JESUS.


His Holy Spirit
felt as if It was running out of my fingers and toes.
Needless to say My hand shot up. I realise it has been expressed as
ROAD TO DAMASCUS EXPERIENCE. When I came out of the church
everything looked different I knew where I was but I felt like a
stranger to the place. (of course I was) I had never visited another
country before but it felt like a new place and I didn't like it.
Everything seemed Grey and dark.
The people I met and knew seemed different
I was not of this world
and I thought what have I done, I knew I couldn't go back and undo
what happened because of the presence so STRONG. I was about 34 and
ignorant. I wasn't going to tell anyone they would think I was mad,
(in fact many people thought later that he had sent me over the top
with the alcoholic problem)
I didn't want to expose my ignorance about the bible or how to pray
so got a book of prayers, that was no good at all, then started
talking to God naturally it worked!!! I went to church the following
Sunday, while John was at the pub. There was a prophesy and God told
me all the things I'd been thinking about Him that week. You can
imagine how I felt. God spoke to ME! . Started telling everyone
about Him no stopping me. Although I didn't ask God to take the
feeling away totally as I couldn't bear to live on this planet
without the feeling but needed to feel more able to live in this world.  


I am getting my feet somewhat on the ground now, but head still in heaven.

I said when i learned about tongues,

DONT DO THAT TO ME Lord knowing my
personality, thought I might use it as a party trick.


About a year later was praying and praising God with every word I

COULD FIND IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE

then said wish I had a thousand tongues to
praise you for what you done.


NOW YOU GUESSED IT. He gave me a new
language. I was worried that the devil may have given it to me and
said Lord even if he had, you can turn it around into Praise because
your God. I have since learned that it is a heavenly tongue to pray
to God


KJV 1 COR 14:2 FOR HE THAT SPEAKETH IN AN UNKNOWN TONGUE
SPEAKETH UNTO GOD.
         <><   <><   <><


I had become a Christian about a week, the Elim Church where I became a Born again Christian, was one my ex mother in law, went with me and attended there, my then Husband said if you go to a different Church I will come with you, why not the one up the top of the Road, I said I can't LOOK  
opening my Bible thinking whatever I turned to I would work something around it. I didn't need to worry, God already was on my case. 
I was shocked that God made my fingers to turn to what I read out it opened to book of Galatians.
I am amazed that so quickly you are deserting from the One having called you in the grace of Christ to another gospel, which is really no gospel at all, even if an angel from heaven or someone preach to you another gospel than the one I have called you to, may he be eternally cursed, I say to you again do you seek to serve Man or God. That is the best I can remember of the wording.
It was from a Gideon Bible.

MORE THAN CONQUERORS

As I explained I was married to an alcoholic who was abusive toward
me.
I hadn't been saved very long a few weeks, and not very conversant
with the bible.
One day I was sitting on the settee, I can't remember why John was
hitting me that day, he didn't have to have excuse but it was
usually because he had little money for drink. He was cursing at me,
then started to punch me in the head, I put my face down so that he
wouldn't bruise my face and I would have to explain to anyone the
bruising. I heard a voice say to me look up, In my mind I thought if
I did my face would get hit. Again the voice said look up, you are a
child of God. As I obeyed the voice, words came in to my mind and
with authority I said "The Lord Rebuke you" What happened then will
amaze you as it did me. John's mouth was
open but no words came out, he was lifted gentle off his feet, his
legs went into a bent position and he was sat down in an armchair in
the room. His arms resting on the arms of the chair, his mouth stil
open but dumb struck, no more cursing at me and swearing bad words,
frozen to the chair. I felt such a power in God in me. I stood up
went over to him and said "See, you cant hit me anymore. I am a
child of God". This lasted for about a minute and he started to come
round for want of better expression. His face that was in a staring
gaze look had returned to normal.
John just got up and left the room. He never hit me after that
incident, although he called me a witch often and would raise his
hand and think twice about hitting me again.

That was years ago. And not the end of the history. God has been
my constant companion and friend and yes We can move Mountains. God
moved my washing machine as I had no help but him. The Power of the
HOLY SPIRIT is MIGHTY.


This happened before God did the miracle of
the WASHING MACHINE &GAS-MAN.


I will post this up also.

We must take God at His Word, and have
faith in Him. For without faith it is impossible to please God.
I must admit, there are times I forget. like Elijah in the cave, who
ran from Jezebel afraid, after God had performed miracles in His
life. Read 1 Kings: 19- Then things sometimes, get worse and I run
to Him who can save me from all these things.
We serve a Supernatural God. We need to start walking in the
Supernatural expecting miracles.

God there all the time Testimony

About 2 years before I became a Christian being married to an abusive alcoholic, in desperation I rang AA to see if they could help stop my husband from drinking Of course you will know by the programme AA offers everyone has to come for themselves.
I was not a Christian as I explained, but I know God was tugging at my heart strings, but I didn't see his hand in it at the time. When I telephoned AA they asked for my number to call me back and put me in touch with a lovely lady named Jacquie in AL ANON for families of alcoholics. This was a lifeline thrown to someone that was clutching at straws. I would agree to anything that would restore my life to sanity. Bless her although they didn't meet on Saturdays, she arranged a meeting in the afternoon of Saturday with several other members, JUST FOR ME!!
Giving me details of where to meet her in the doorway of a Well Known Department Store that I knew close to the train station. It was raining I had the 2 children with me and she wasn't there!. Money was short and as I had to pay for myself and the 2children to travel I wasn't going to leave this city, I was determined to find where they met although I was given no instructions I walked a little way and decided to turn left down a side street, (this was Gods leading) don't ask me why I have no idea but I saw a church on the right hand side I walked up two of the steps and something said in my spirit no this is not the place. I carried on further down the long road where I saw a man painting the outside porch of a building it said Quakers Meeting House. I asked him, I wonder could you tell me where people meet for Alcoholics? yeh he said inside here up the stairs people are already there. I walked into that little room where I saw cards placed around, not noticing what was on them. Someone took my children to another room to entertain them. I sat down wet and weary, each introduced themselves to me when Jacquie also wet entered the room, recognising me as the only new member she explained how she couldn't get away from work and apologised for being late. Asking how did you get here? how did you know where to come? shrugging my shoulders I dont know! the members looked at each other and smiled. We then got down to business I sat quietly soaking in anything they had to offer. Then the God bit was mentioned Higher power I thought oh no I don't need religion this hit my gut, I now know that I was cut off from God at that time and that is why I felt that reaction,but being so desperate decided to ignore the spirit and listen to what they were offering I would take onboard anything they said. Needless to say, I got on the programme and within months on the programme LET GO AND LET GOD.

Realising the great need in my home town of a help such as thi,s I set up a Group becoming Leader myself. a lengthy story with a lot of laughs . Briefly I was allowed to use Police premises that I wasn't suppose to have access to. They found out and we had to leave unfortunately. I could write a book LOL.
Ok to the Best Point
After 2 years on the recovery programme God decided enough was enough and in my own home breathed in me and I had a Road to Damascus Experience with God. There is too much to say on this but you can read more in my SAVED TESTIMONY. I just wanted to share with you.

GOD HAS HIS HAND ON YOUR LIFE and he will not leave you.
There is a wonderful scripture which I have written in front of my bible.
Psm94:18 When I said, I am slipping your love supported me. Be encouraged,that and the many great helps in the AA BOOK with people who understand where your coming from can help families and friends who are going through the trials of caring about someone who is alcoholic.

I would love to tell you of a Miracle that happened when I first became a christian and people in the church were telling me you dont need them now you got Jesus. Wanting to please God in every way I prayed for his guidance, at the time I was no longer attending Al-Anon due to the fact the premises we used, we had to leave. So I was regarded a Loner in the Register of Al-Anon.
Our Pastor was away evengelising and we had been asked to fast and pray. As I was praying one day I asked the Lord to give me someone on my heart to pray for as I found it difficult to pray generally for the people,I had a waking type dream, I saw a man on a double decker bus, getting off, walking into his home hanging his coat on a peg and a woman in the kitchen, It was dark I couldn't see their faces. So I concentrated on praying for these people. during the 3 weeks the pastor was away I received a letter from Al-Anon asking as a loner would I write to another Loner this I agreed to. My Insurance lady a christian also was at my home the day the letter arrived It was the same area that my Pastor had been evangelising I talked with Josie and she said well, I know what the church has told you but I definately believe this is of God and you should continue with them.
After she left I picked up my roller and proceeded to emulsion the Wall in my home, I said I just don't know Lord I need something straight from your throne, thinking this would be a prophesy when I attend Church next. Immediately God gave me a vision on the wall of my hallway. It was like Cinema Scope it only lasted about a minute, the scene was waterside to the right a strip of land, to the left grounded fishing boats and fisher men with their nets a man running across to the right where Jesus in long white robe stood looking out to sea with his back to me, the man tugged at his sleeve saying Master, Master, theres a man over there casting out demons in your name and he don't even know you, The Lord stretched out his left hand as if to silence him, saying "if he is for me then he can't be against me". Then the vision vanished. You can imagine how amazed I was that The Lord would be so gracious to me allowing me this vision confirming it was ok to stay with Al Anon.
It was only later that I read these very words in the bible.
Many people who become Christians I have known that they have been delivered of their addictions miraculously.
The point I would like to make is God do send helps of many kinds, such as Doctors and Counselling Services etc our way.

Praise Brings The Victory

Later I hadn't been saved very long, a few weeks or couple of months. 

Previously: It was my 2nd marriage, I was living at home with my parents and John. Dad as a Christian insisted on me getting married, We had moved in with my parents from my former home to save for a depot for house, he didn't know he was dying of cancer. My Dad died the day I was married. he left me some money and I was able to put a deposit on a house with John. I soon learned he was an abusive alcoholic.

Within a short time of four months,he had beat me picked me up, threw me against a wall injured my back, I had a friend who lived closeby, I sent my daughter to go ask her to phone an ambulance, which took me on a stretcher, they wanted me to stay, I said I need to get home couldn't leave my children with him. They told him he would need to get a bed downstairs for me. 

My daughter from my first marriage who was eleven, had to push the stroller of my youngest age about 2 Until I got strong enough to leave. I rang my brother to come fetch me and with two black bags of clothes and the children I returned to Mums home. 

I tried to get help for a house, they told me I had become intentionally homeless by leaving, but eventually, I was given a Council Home. I needed my furniture and cooker etc. So got in touch with John asking could I have some, a share what belonged to me. He said he was very sorry, that everything belonged to me and he would help me get the furniture into the new home. He persuaded me he had changed and I believed him, I took him back, he sold the house and kept the proceeds.

Again there was little to no money, other than, the government child allowance, I would go to shops ask for a bone for the dog I didn't have and veg that was in the refuse box for the rabbit I didn't have to make a stew. 

He was said unemployed, so the housing was paid for direct, a roof over our head. Although he went out doing jobs for cash.

There is much more but to put you in the picture. And I believe will help you in your Prayer of Faith.

The gas and electricity Bills were ignored. I became a Christian which was a miracle you can read of more in my Testimony thread. 

My daughter was ironing the one school uniform she had to be washed and dried to wear. I said to her, I am going upstairs to have a moan to God, looked in the mirror as I passed to go upstairs I looked like an old women with weary eyes and face. I was in my late 30s 



In Church I was taking Bible Studies with a married couple. Roy on Sunday Afternoon, Maureen Thursday Morning. I learned such a lot from Maureen and being with Roy was as if in the presence of God, he knew nothing of my circumstances but it was as though everything he said was helpful to my situation. When I got upstairs. I remember what Roy said Praise bring the Victory, telling me of how they went out praising and the walls of Jerico fell down flat and they walked into VICTORY.

I started thanking God I was married to an abusive alcoholic that keep me short of money, I praise you that I have no money to buy food or pay the Bills. And so it went on. I THANK YOU LORD that you think me Worthy and trust me to bring glory to your name through all this.

It was just a few moments. I went down the stairs saw my face in the mirror I looked 10 years younger, My daughter looked up said WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU.



 The following day: The Electric man came to cut off the electricity. I said just a mo I will get the key to the garage where the meter is. He thought I may injure myself and said I will come back later see if you can go up town pay something off. 

I explained about the alcoholic husband and that I needed to stop trying to make things work.

I cooked food on the gas cooker and we were about to eat by candlelight when John came in, took his food to go into sitting room took the candlelight, I said you can't take that the children need to see to eat.

The next morning he came in threw money at me and said get your .... up there and pay the Bill, I said I need £15 more as they charge that for the inconvenience, he pulled out his wallet and threw the money on the floor.

There was a lot of other things but this is to say Little by little things improved enough for me to be stronger, learning how to pray in my situation.even to stop him hitting me anymore but thats another story. 

Years later I did divorce him, not because of his behaviour as God helped me through that. But because of his Clandestine affair with a woman he had a child with before marrying me. 

My First Husband and I became friends once again. Just friends and I was with him the morning he died.

THE NAME DUNGGATE

No offence taken, But my name I chose is very special to me as God spoke to me while I was reading Nehemiah. You are probably familiar with it but in brief, if that is possible. He wanted to build up the walls of Jerusalem and arrived at the dunggate alone.

Sometime ago, God led me to a place alone,and spoke to my heart from this passage. It is my desire to build up the walls of his Jerusalem, us the living stones the body of Christ. What is so marvelous is that they didn't get new stones but used the old and burned ones, a bit like some of us.

We are now being used of God to build up His Kingdom. So I find it a priviledge to be able to use that name. I arrive at the dunggate, Most of us do, the mess in our lives without Jesus. But he is building something beautiful in my life. I love Jesus with all of my heart. I can't stop thinking about him (or want to) When I was called I had a road to Damascus experience with God and he called me with a song. I will make you fishers of me if you follow me. It has been my priviledge and pleasure to be able to witness to others of his saving Grace, and I hope the testimony of my changed life is also a witness to others, of his Grace and mercy and His enabling Holy Spirit.

Love in Christ our Saviour. Dunggate (Elaine)


I wrote to Rhinah (A jewish bornagain Mesianic lady) asking her permission could I use her material on the net. Which she graciously has.

I was given a prophetic word from her when I explained to Rhinah Shalom why I took on the name ,who was so impressed with my understanding and how His Holy Spirit had revealed so much to me, in the way I had read Nehemiah and how I had arrived at the dunggate of my life all the use and abuse, and took on this name for I too want to build up the Walls of the new Jerusalem the people of God his church, as Nehemiah wanted to build up the walls of Jerusalem and used the old burnt out stones. I related to this, how God is using me old used abused and burnt out.


THE PROPHETIC WORD GIVEN. (from Rhinah Shalom)

Indeed you are Yahveh's gate and many shall enter into THE MORE ABUNDANT LIFE! People may have labeled you dung but Yahveh says you are most beautiful though delicate flower and He is watching over you to make sure you grow tall and straight and NO HARM shall come near you

<>< <>< <><

It was many years later that I read of Howard Morgan his teaching on the dunggate he also gave me permission to use his material. I will include link here, you need to scroll down the page to find the article of the dunggate.
There are some surprises for us all there.

WASHING MACHINE & GASMAN MIRACLE TESTIMONYFrom: Dunggate (Original Message) Sent: 2/5/2005 3:16 PM
Hi all,

I've been asked to share with you some miracles I have experienced.
24 years ago I had a Road to Damascus experience with Jesus. You can find out in my Testamony.
I was married to an alcoholic, who was very abusive toward me. There was little money for food let alone pay the bills, just to give you a picture of the situation.
After having this encounter with Jesus all things were possible. He said if you have faith to move a mountain it will be removed.
Although there was little money I decided I was going to trust God and replace the broken lino on my kitchen floor, which was a hazzard. So bought a piece for about £8. (Got to tell you here God sent parcel of food later to my door with luxuries I could never afford) Well the problem was how was I going to fit it. I asked John and he sarcastically said ask God to help you and went off to the pub. My Mum who was full of arthritis particularly her gnarled hands was visiting me. My Mum had made Jesus her Lord at the age of 5 but didn't go to church or tell me about Jesus,and when I became a christian her ember was rekindled.

There was a gas fridge which had to be removed to get the lino under it. My Mum said what about phoning your Dads old friend he used to be a gasman maybe he can help. My spirit felt strange and I said no we dont need one right now lets just get this old stuff up first. We had to remove tiles also that were broken and stuck to the floor with glue. With a fish spatula we both got to it. They were difficult to move and I sent up a silent prayer watching my poor mother struggling to help. Lord make it easy please. Mum said their becoming easier to come off (Praise God) all removed. There in the kitchen I said a short word to God (prayer) Lord what I need is a Gasman, before I had taken another breath, knock knock at the door, Gasman Scratching his head,
I dont know what I'M doing here luv Im suposed to be over there pointing to another row of houses. I smiled said I do, I just prayed for you, come in. I told him all about my experience of Jesus and played him some christian music while I made a cup of tea. After this, he told me that he was married and having an affair with a woman over the other street he was going to, and that His wife sounded like me. I told him God had sent him to me to show him, go home to your wife and stop seeing this woman. He said it has certainly given me food for thought. Well anyway what did you want me for. So he shifted my gas fridge.
We got to the washing machine which needed lifting to get the lino underneath. Here we have two little women one with severe arthritis and a 7 stone weakling who also has disability problems.Remember the story about Jesus calling Peter to come to him when he walked on the water. Well he didnt put a plank there for Peter to walk on. He had to step out in faith and put his foot on the water. Same here. My Mum saying what if I try to push the top,she put her wrists to the top of the washing, at the time I was kneeling on the floor with the remaining rolled up lino, I again sent up a word to God saying well Lord short of this having wings I don't know how we are going to do it. Wait for it, the washing machine literally rose a few inches in the air, the lino shot out of my hands and rolled under the washing machine and the machine went down. This happened in a blink of an eye.
It too 3 strong men including my ex John to get this machine into the small corner next to the sinkunit. My ex husband returned looking surprised asked how did you do that, I replied My Father done it. ( my earthly Dad had died some years earlier) John replied I believe you. Unfortunately John never came to Jesus through the many miracles he witnessed, and the many times God spoke to him directly. I have forgiven all the past and am still praying for him.
We serve a marvelous God who wants to bless us.
PRAISE HIS HOLY WONDERFUL NAME JESUS.

Love in Jesus Our Saviour Master and Friend, Provider Miracle Worker all sufficent God,
Elaine

Elaine (aka Dunggate) Testimonies thread Empty HALLOWEEN TESTIMONY

Post  Admin on Thu 13 Nov 2008, 5:08 pm

HALLOWEEN TESTIMONY
This is a Testimony to encourage you that The Holy Spirit will lead us into all truths. We may not be knowledgeable in the bible or some may even have a deep theological approach. But The Author of our Faith gives us his Holy Spirit and will teach us and protect us from harm. Let us be sensitive to the Holy Spirit in our walk with Jesus.

HALLOWEEN TESTIMONY
I become a Christian late August 1980 Baptised in the Holy Spirit at conversion. Wanting to learn more and more about Jesus I attended every bible study at church. I bring your attention to the fact that I had only been reading the bible for some 6 weeks. During the build up to Halloween my daughter aged 5 yrs came home chanting something she learned at school, We are witches of Halloween etc., I felt something wrong in my Spirit and asked God show me why I got this feeling. I turned to my bible and the page opened at Deut 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
Also, Leviticus 18 where I read Do not follow their practices then verse 21 Do not give any of your children to be sacrificed to Molech for you must not profane the name of your God I am the Lord.
As this was a long time ago I have had to do a search so that you may better understand what the passage is saying.
Molech…
The name of an image or idol, according to Aben Ezra, who observes, that their wise men interpret it as a general name for everyone whom they made to reign over them;

I carried on reading and another verse caught my attention
Lev 19 :31 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.
You will understand this to be. Do not turn to mediums or seek out mediums for you will be defiled by them.
On reading these things.
I went to visit a new Christian friend I had made and told her what I had found and she said, “yes I did tell them last year at school I don’t want my Sarah being involved with Halloween.” Her being an older Christian than me I said why not make arrangements to go and speak together with the Headmistress. So I rang for an appointment. I arrived at Barbara’s before our arranged meeting and we prayed together. Up to this point I thought Barbara would have been the better person to speak to the Headmistress as she had more knowledge of the bible than me. During our prayer time I felt strangely strong and after said, Barbara, I am the one that has to speak to her.
The headmistress was sat at her desk, counting the dinner money from the children I presume, as it was covered in small coins. I proceeded to tell her that I had recently become a Christian and I didn’t think it right for my daughter to be involved in the practice of the things they were doing for Halloween. She replied,” Oh! its just a bit of harmless fun,” I, said but the bible says Do not follow these practices. She replied “Besides this has been going on since time in memorial” (words to that effect)
I had my bible in my hand and had bookmarked it. I opened the bible and said but it says here:
Deut 18 Do not be an observer of the times. And do not let your daughter use divinations.
This is so amazing that God had given me the very answers in advance, to the things she was going to say to me.
At this point she stood up, hands stretched out leaning on her desk and said, “Don’t! preach to me the bible I am ordained to preach from the pulpit”. She came round from her desk and practically pushing me out through the door saying “ Yes, yes, I will have your daughter removed from this now, I am very busy goodbye.”
I prayed for this woman. That God would show her the wrong. Sometime later I heard her husband had died, and I blamed myself thinking it was because I prayed God would show her.
I met her on the street years later and there was a definite softening of the woman she smiled at me and asked me how was I? God is so good so awesome, repairing what had happened all those years ago.

HOLIDAY IN TURKEY DIVINE APPOINTMENT
No ordinary Holiday!
Many people have asked me to write about the 1st Holiday I ever had and the wonderful miracles that occurred.
Paul my son was coming up to 11 years of age and Stephanie my daughter thought it would be nice for him to experience a holiday abroad to broaden his horizons before he went on to Secondary school. We hadn’t been able to afford holidays, my ex husband being an alcoholic, although I had been divorced 6 years, money was still short being a single parent and only able to hold a part-time job.
As a Christian I had stayed with John for 17 years and divorced him on the grounds of adultery, people said I could marry again but I said, if God wants me to get married, he would have to bring the man to my door. I wasn’t bitter about men but I had two previous marriages and if it was to happen again this time I wanted God to make the choice.
I won’t go into lengthy detail but I will say be warned always test the spirit whether it is of God. Although God did use these circumstances to fulfil what he wanted me to do.
Yes a very pleasant man did come to my door, through another person. It was arranged that some large water containers would be dropped off at my house for him to pick up to be used on the yaught which he had been unable to get hold of for some reason but God arranged all this. Unknown to me he was a rather wealthy man. I will point out at this time that I am living on a council held estate. In a short while he became a friend to the family and when he learned that Paul and Stephanie had a holiday planned he asked would your mother like to go, Stephanie said mum is a very proud lady and wouldn’t accept. Stephanie was persuading me to get a passport; I knew nothing of their plan. I said I couldn’t afford time off work when it was unlikely for me to ever have a use of one. So with much talks I agreed to find time to have a photograph taken. Stephanie and the man went along to the passport office. The tickets booked for Turkey and I had to leave within 24hours I was informed. Spending money was put into an envelope for me. What I didn’t realise until during and after the holiday that it was a divine appointment from God.
THE TURKEY HOLIDAY
On the coach from the airport there were several families that had been booked into the same Hotel on the package deal. There were delays in our arriving and I was hungry, not wishing to miss breakfast I thought if I lay down for a rest I will fall asleep, so decided to take go to the hotel swimming pool. A young girl who spoke no English was about her chores, so with sign language was asking her which was the shallow side of the pool, I could swim but had never learned to tread water. I was directed to the adult side although I was trying to make it plain I wanted the shallow end section. Needless to say I learned to tread water very quickly. This is the first of the miracles in Turkey.
Because of the delay in our journey the Hotel had arranged the next day for us to go on a cruise around the Island as a compensation for our inconvenience. So after Breakfast we relaxed on our chairs beside the pool, me with my bible enjoying the sun, when a lady got out of the water came over to me and asked “are you a Christian” yes, “would you pray for my husband.” Yes, of course I replied and off she went. Immediately after her a young man came out of the water asking the same question “are you a Christian” my reply the same yes. He then went on to tell me that his father is a Jehovah Witness preacher, not wishing to offend him I said, I must say I do admire the work they do, going around the doors speaking to people, although I would like to add, I don’t think they have anything to offer. What do you mean he asked? I said, Well Jesus said I come that you may have life more abundantly. He was delighted and said I have wanted to hear something like this all my life. Danny sat with me as I talked to him about my faith and salvation through Jesus. My father made me go around the doors with him and if I got the scripture wrong took a belt to me, he told me. I also spoke about communion the bread and the wine, which he said he was unable to take this, was only for the leaders in his church. . He said you have given me a lot to think about as he got up from talking with me to go.
While I lay on my bed that night, I reflected and talked over with God what had happened, making mention of the lady who asked me to pray for her husband. Lord I don’t know if her husband is unsaved and she is a Christian I don’t know how to pray for Him, but you know Father what the need is and I ask that you will undertake in the matter as only you can.
I awoke after a good nights rest, looking forward to the cruise around the Island promised. Remembering the lady I would probably see, asked The Lord, what shall I say to her, I opened my bible and my fingers caught two pages. Psalm 147 and Proverbs 3 I read, and then asked The Lord what are you saying, in my mind came to be a preacher and musician. I went for breakfast and the first person I saw was the very lady, I asked can I join you at your table for breakfast, with my bible in hand I proceeded to say, This may be my interpretation but I feel that God wants your husband to be a preacher, she said Oh no definitely not! I said, well I did say maybe it was my interpretation, but what was to follow when her husband arrived was confirmation this was of God. As he sat down she told him what I had said, and he then explained He had just come from Bible College training to be a preacher that he was very disappointed with others there, they didn’t have the same love and zeal that he had for Jesus and thought it was a sham so came out. He said,” I thought you may have something about my music”, Praise God, I said oh yes God has answered that also. And gave him the other message and explanation. He said how, can I become a preacher and musician? I told him I had seen preachers who played guitar also. This young man Noel (from Manchester) is a catholic and writes his own music. I mention this for you to get the picture of what was happening in Turkey and all will be realised as you read on. He told me how his holiday had been paid for out of the grant money he had received, and the money that he had left which they said he could keep. The day his flight was booked was the same date as ours. (Thursday)
Readers all this is important for you to know.
We boarded the coach to take us on to the cruise around the Island along with other families. We now have a good conversation going on board with Danny (from Liverpool) the Jehovah Witness, and Noel the Catholic. Danny talked mostly to me while Noel was telling others about himself. Danny told me how he had been stressed with his business and his sister decided to surprised him and on the (Thursday) booking the package holiday for him.
You can probably see by now how God’s divine appointment is unfolding. This is our second day, onboard the cruise they stopped off at a deserted cove where we could take to the sea. After God had allowed me not to drown in the pool at the hotel I decided to join others in the sea, if God had keep me afloat in the depth of the pool he sure could keep me safe in the fathoms of sea. I was so excited and felt so amazingly set free from the fear that bound me all these years. I swam to the shore where I picked up a piece of agate stone and popped it into the bathing costume top. The others had swam back and the boat seemed far away, Satan tried to frighten me and doubt God, I thought I’ve got to get back I told Satan Jesus brought me here and he is going to get me back I am unafraid I am trusting him. The others had got on board and now I was enjoying my freedom around the anchored boat, everyone was calling at me to get aboard but I slowly took my time to. As I scrambled up the board which was allowing us to climb onboard. The others greeted me to say look this is why we were calling you. I was surrounded by SHARKS which they could see in the clear water. Praise God I was safe again. They photographed the sharks that were around me.
3rd Day still relaxing and now enjoying the pool diving in and shouting Praise the Lord to the cheers of Danny, Noel and Liz his wife and others who were now catching the fire clapping and enjoying what God had done for me and with me. I then lay in the sun enjoying a massage at the pool telling the Muslim man about Jesus. When he had finished, the lady beside me who had been on-looking all these events, dragged up her sun-bed to say “ I am a Christian also” her name is Denise ( from Plymouth) and told me she belonged to SALVATION ARMY. I will tell you at this point because of the experiences she witnessed she went home to go for her BONNET.
We all became firm friends experiencing the family of God atmosphere among us. The Turkish Manager and Staff talked with me, thinking we must all know each other, they had never experienced such friendship and love among people. I was able to explain that we had never met before, that God didn’t want separation of people that loved Him. I was able to talk with the staff who said they had never met anyone like me before, All praise I give to God. There were others whom I didn’t have a lot of time with that I believe witnessed things as they looked on at the fellowship we were having. People from Scotland and Yorkshire, that I knew of. One lady I only had chance to ask are you a Christian as she wore the star of David, she said no, so I explained what the star represented with a circle around it. Telling her I was a Christian. I pray God will use whatever I was able to do and say in his leading that he will bring to their remembrance the Holiday of a difference.
Danny joined me on the balcony of my room one evening with his bottle of wine, I had some bread. Stephanie, my son Paul and Denise to one side of the balcony Danny and I went aside, He asked Jesus into his life and we took communion, his first. The Salvation Army girl Denise was also talking to Stephanie, suddenly everyone went quiet and looked at me and said your face is shining, I said don’t be silly it’s the moon reflecting on my face, they said an emphatic NO your shining. I can only think that Jesus love was shining through, my love for the lost and encouragement I was willing to give others of another faith and belief.
Many things happened too numerous to mention. We shared purses as Jesus would have us, helping each other in many ways. As God intended, complete strangers able to trust each other with family and purse. One took Paul on a journey with them as I went onto a place I felt God leading me to visit. Another girl had an accident and I calmed her and although a nurse was present I helped her. Her boyfriend never forgot my kindness. I say this, because my boast is in Jesus.
Holiday ended by us exchanging address’ some have kept in touch ‘til this day.
Three weeks later I received a letter from the young man whom I had helped his girlfriend. He was not one of the people I had had real contact with other than this incident. He wrote saying he had not told anyone and was writing to tell me first of his experience in Turkey. He was on holiday with his girlfriend in Turkey because his parents had bought it for him as a result of the illness he had which almost cost him his life. He had cancer, and although his treatment over and was about to be discharged something strange happened in the hospital he died and they managed to revive him. He went along to a chapel in the hospital and spoke to God saying I have just found this lovely girlfriend and my parents would be devastated if anything happens to me being an only child, if you let me live I will serve you the rest of my life. After he had seen the things that were happening in Turkey me shouting praise the Lord jumping in the pool and seeing and hearing what was happening with the others, he knew God was speaking to him. When he arrived home, he went to see his grandmother who is a Christian and accompanied her to church. He too had his holiday booked on the Thursday.
I spent a lot of time talking to the staff and we also exchanged address’ two of the young men treated me as if I were a mother to them, they loved to spend as much time as was possible with us while doing their work and when they finished wanting to be with us.
We talked of our plans of the excursions so that we could all be together. It was like a convention at the hotel. We travelled to Many of the ruins of the Churches in Asia Minor and the villages. The guide was very good pointing out Churches of the apostles such as Peter and John.
On Paul’s birthday we went shopping for a present and these darling brothers and sisters had got together and planned a lovely surprise party in the restaurant across the road from our hotel. The Turkish staff sang Happy Birthday in their language, bringing in the largest chocolate cake enough for the huge surprise party gathering.
On my return home I had an invitation to go to Noel and Liz Catholic Church in Manchester as Noel had told his Priest of all that had happened. Their gathering had been told of the miracles in Turkey of how God had arranged for us of different denominations to be together in that Hotel and how he had also arranged for each holiday to be provided.
The members who wanted to join us were invited to stay after their service to seek the Holy Spirit. We sat in a circle and waited on the Lord quietly each then going alone to a corner of the room to pray, the presence of God was beautiful. As we left the building the Priest spoke with me and said well things are certainly going to be different here I’m not sure what but now we have an experience of God we never had before.
I have no doubt that God is continuing with each of the people on that holiday in Turkey. and the extension of lives that have been touched as a result of it.
I praise God and thank him for the wonderful experience of being used of him. Before I close I will make mention that I wanted to visit Ephesus but it was decided that we wouldn’t be able to fit this in the excursions.
4 years later I went to Turkey again to go to Ephesus the others declined to come as they said what happened those years earlier could never be repeated.
I went shopping with another Christian lady that had accompanied me, with the intention of getting a ring my daughter wanted a small opal stone. The first shop we came to we found empty, stepping inside a young man came along and pulled out trays of rings. I said thank you but none of these are suitable. Then an amazing thing happened, He said you are a Christian lady God told me you were coming 4 years ago, I have been waiting. We sat for hours talking about my faith in God. He explained that although he couldn’t read Hebrew he got hold of a bible and was able to read and understand the language. Needless to say this again was in God’s plan.
Let us always be sensitive to God’s Holy Spirit and follow his leading.
For Jesus sake. Many people would question for Jesus sake it is surely for our sake, but no Jesus died on that cross for us, so let not his sacrifice be in vain for you.
I will write another time of my 2nd Journey which took me to Ephesus and the young man who had waited 4 years to talk with me.

Light Lunch or Sunday Roast Testimony

On reading the post Question of the week 28th July 2007 prompted me to write up a little testimony of something which happened when I first became a Christian.
At my first communion Sunday which was the following week of my conversion I learned there were bible studies in the afternoon and there would be a bus provided for the sunday school classes which co-incided with the adult studies.
I had rushed to get to the Sunday morning communion meeting, and hung around for a little while chatting to people and this is how I found out about the bible study.
It was about 1.10pm by the time I got home, the classes started at 3pm and I had sunday roast lunch which had to be cooked, which was a must and expected when married to John.
Frances only had one school uniform which had to be washed and dried ready for school the next day, I don't remember why the washing was not done on the Saturday probably raining and of course there was other washing.
I had a German shepherd dog at the time and seem to have more hairs on the carpet than on him so the 3 storey house had to be vacuumed through every day aswell.

Well I put in a load of one of the wash, then began doing the breakfrast dishes which also needed doing. Whilst at the kitchen sink I was talking to God saying Lord I really would love to go to the bible study but you know all the things which have to be done I said Lord its not as if I am asking you can I get these things done to go to BINGO or something such as that but because I want to learn more of you. I had put in the roast joint and proceeded with the vegetables. Then there were beds to be made and the vacuum cleaning to be done so while the washing cycle was on proceeded to do them. I hung out the one load of washing on the line then waited for the other whilst dishing out dinner.
All done,... and I looked at the clock and feared I may have missed the bus so we did rush walk to the church which takes about 7-10 minutes. I arrived and settled Stephanie in the childrens section and made my way to the adult class where others were getting seated. One of the ladies said that her auto timer had not worked and so they had to have a light lunch, (words to that effect) I then told of how I had walked to church, my prayer,..... and all the things I had got done, needless to say there were a few raised eyebrows together with others acknowledging that this was a miracle of God.

God never fails to amaze me and I know this was a miracle and not some great feat which I could have rushed and accomplished, as on another occasion I did less but prayed the same prayer and caught the bus just in time.
God is a great encourager but it is written we should not tempt the Lord our God, In my ignorance I see that I was testing God out.
I pray we will all grow in his grace and thank Him for His mercy.
Remembering that at times he will answer our prayers favourably this is usually times that we may be encouraged to grow in trust and to pray and put all things in His hands to work out for our good. ALWAYS


God bless you All

Thank you Gilly and Kandy for covering so much of how depression can effect even us as Christians, yes I too have been to those depths once as a non Christian where I tried to take my life and about 13 years ago when I contemplated taking my life. This time it was a definate spiritual battle with the devil who planted in my mind to do it. It had been a long struggle fighting off the depression through circumstances in my life when I had a whisper go on do it, I battled and thought no I can't leave Paul behind he would have no one, then the devil said do him aswell, it was the scariest experience of my life. I rushed to the Church and two were loving and prayed with me but it was God who kept me.
I cannot share all the details her it would be better posted on the appropriate board of Share and Support so hopefully it will be of benefit to others.
Love in Jesus Elaine.
Testimony on Depression Ive Been there Depression affects millions of people.
And is nothing to be ashamed of, you may feel is a sign of weakness.
Because depression is viewed as negative,
many Christians who suffer from depression
have come to believe that something is wrong with them
because of the depressed feelings.
After all, they are taught to believe,
Christians are joyful.
Therefore, if you are not filled with joy,
there's something wrong with your relationship with God.
Not so:
I Kings 19 describes the experience of Elijah-
the same Elijah who in the previous chapter single-handedly killed 450 Baal priests.
When Queen Jezebel heard that 450 of her priests had been slaughtered,
she put a price on Elijah's head.
He found the most pitiful lonely tree and laid down under it.
Then he asked God if he could just die (verse 4).
Does this sound like the mighty prophet of God?

Depression is often confused with unhappiness.
Depression rarely comes out of nowhere.
Some may inherit melancholic tendencies
that make them more vulnerable to depression.
A person with depression experiences great distress and is often inconsolable.
Depression may spring up many years after being supressed for a long time.
Maybe one have had to be the strong one for the family in a brievement,
and not allowed to grieve.

There are different types of depression,
and unless you have walked that path it is unkind,
to say the least,
to tell that person to snap out of it, pull your socks up, get out there and get on with it.
Some give dangerous advice and tell them they don't need the tablets,
that a doctor may have prescribed.

Nervous breakdown was the general term used for someone that have been unable to cope
and hospitalized until they were able to resume their normal daily routine.
There are many reasons for this breakdown some are:
The death of a loved one, divorce, or sudden
unemployment can trigger an emotional collapse.

Some syptoms include that a completely reasonable person can
suddenly behave in an irrational way, sometimes becoming paranoid,
extremely agitated, or even suicidal. It is impostant for all
involved to accept that a stay in the hospital is often the first
step in recovery and reversing a spiraling state of mind that could
otherwise be extremely damaging to the person.


Scientists have learned that there may be a chemical inbalance, another type.
I am no expert on the subject but having experienced depression myself I feel I am able
to enter in on some that are suffering.
I will give a brief of some things, so that others may know where I am coming from.
I experienced not being allowed to grieve the loss of my baby son.
I had to be the strong one for the family when my father died on the eve of my wedding day.
I had to be the one to hold the family together and not crack,
to appear to be OK when going through divorce,
and having to cope with a child who had to see physcologist because of the trauma.
I have always been considered the strong one, where friends and family have come to me,
When all the time I desperately wanted someone to carry me.
As a Christian it even entered my head to commit suicide, something I never thought possible.
God has been my help I will add and kept me.

There is a huge list of symptoms which maybe we can list in the messages that follow.
We need to be sensitive to the needs of others and even when we do not understand
and feel we can offer no advice and don't feel qualified.
All that is needed is to be there for them, even if they are not saying anything,
a friend who will listen when they do, hold the hand
and pray.
My advice to anyone suffering in silence DONT!
Please visit your doctor.
God bless you

These are great posts Elaine. I have always maintained that testimony is the most powerful form of preaching to the unconverted. We have many similarities, I too went to the Salvation Army as a youngster, and was in the Junior Band. I came to the Lord in 1979 after a downward spiral that had left me in a total black hole. Some time back I think I gave my testimony in here.
Nowadays, the internet has to be one of the best forms of communication going, and it's really wonderful, and lifts my heart and fills me with praise for all you have written, God Bless you love!

Elaine (aka Dunggate) Testimonies thread Empty My Motorbike Crash Testimony when age 15yrs old

Post  Admin on Fri 27 Feb 2009, 10:29 pm

The Motor Bike Gang met up in local cafe's and doing our rounds of get on your bike:  showing "their prowess"

On the 24th May 1960 just 20 days after my 15th birthday I was in a head-on collision the impact from the bike and vehicle was I am told 120mph so I am very fortunate to be alive.  

Miracles I wish to post that God is so good even when we have not bowed the knee of our hearts to his Lordship in our lives.  I was not a Christian at this time.

The first being that I was thrown into the air where a Tree broke my fall, then falling through to a hedge below,
a branch went into my mouth where another biker Colin Mathews came and pulled out to prevent me from being choked of air.
Another of the miracle is the accident was just outside of a Hospital, the ambulance which attended me, although I have no recolection of this, thought it was his daughter as she had gone out that evening wearing similar clothing to myself, which incidently had been torn to ribbons by the fall.
He, I do vaguely remember him coming to visit me in the early days I was in and out of unconsciousness.

I had fractured ribs which came close to puncturing my lung, causing me difficulty in breathing.
I had other multiple compound fractures, the operations included a plate and screws to my knee and screws to the fib and tib, I later had gangrene and they thought of amputation of my leg but thankfully they saved it.  
I have one arm now shorter than the other due to smashed humerus there was talks that my arm would be no use and thoughts of amputation of that also, but thankfully they decided on another operation to put in a bent position so would not just hang down, with perseverance and I am sure with God's intervention, in time I got the arm to work, I remember so well I was determined this arm would work again and with the free hand and heavy plaster cast every day lifted up to help fix my hair...The vanity of a 15 yr old did help Very Happy
I also had fractured pelvis.
It was a year before they taught me to walk again so I have a lot to be thankful to God for, I was not wearing a crash helmet as wasn't compulsory at the time and with no head injuries. I should add I received the miracle of to walk on the very first day.
With all the bone shaking it has not come without it's problems, as one can imagine and the reason the disabilities I now have, affected me more as I have got older.

Hopefully my little testimony here is a warning
especially the youth and others who take chances.

Today 14th May. 2020

ADDITION of which I posted regarding Testimony of Richard.


Like you, I’m a walking miracle Richard Kent in a head on collision as a pillion on motorbike flung through the air at impact 120 mph. 3 compound fractures to fibula and tibia, smashed knee cap, I later had gangrene and they spoke of amputation, to not just the leg, but the smashed humerus(elbow) they said would’ve useless. Internal injuries of 3fractures. Of pelvis and ribs. Hospitalised in plaster bedridden unable to walk. Would I walk again? Use the arm? The very first day of visit to physio, with two nurses either side holding me, my hand if the bars, telling my brain walk, the action did not happen, silently I said again leg forward walk, it may of taken a minute or two, but I walked immediately. No physio needed. MyGod YeshuaHaMashiach is a miracle worker, he has given heavens authority, to those with faith to believe. I was 15 at the time, I am now 75. with more miracles to tell of.

Elaine (aka Dunggate) Testimonies thread Empty EGYPT 2002 Holiday

Post  Admin on Thu 25 Feb 2010, 2:51 am

Testimony Egypt Christmas 2002
The amazing story of Israel’s deliverance from bondage in Egypt is described from chapters seven through thirteen of Exodus. God demonstrated His power over all Egypt’s gods with plagues directed against false deities such as Osiris, the river god and Ra the god of the sun. Regarding the worship of idols, God asks this question through the prophet Isaiah: “To whom will you compare Me or count Me equal? To whom will you liken Me that we may be compared?” (Isaiah 46:5 NIV) Among the gods of this world, only YAHWEH reigns supreme.
Egypt 2002
Our last holiday together as a family. Steph, Paul and I, took in Egypt for Christmas. We had asked Fran my eldest daughter to come also but she declined.
We had been watching Travel programmes on the TV Steph spoke with me via the telephone and suggested a couple of places Hurgarda and Sharks Bay. I had seen a special offer at a place called Sharks Bay 5 star Hilton Hotel just 10 mins from the airport, 4 pools and 5 Restaurants, the price was right but I imagined they must have lots of shark and although I didn't much like the idea of swimming in the sea with them although I said lets go for that one. Little did I know the name was primarily because of the shape of the rocks at the small sandy private beach although you may find a shark but feeding the fish was prohibited so quite unlikely I found out later.
Our Hotel was situated at the foot of Mount Sinai
during our stay we crammed in as much as possible of site seeing.
The evening of our arrival I chatted with the Manager of the restaraunt who asked me many questions of the bible and shared with me his thoughts he has a daughter who is being brought up by his family he had married a catholic girl but things were so difficult they divorced, he shared with me how he wished he could get his daughter away from them and the upbringing of their ways.
I became friendly with the head waiter Medhat who invited to escort me and take me to places usually not visited to get a feel of the culture.
We stopped at a coffee house, when I say house it was outdoors place and close to the beach, the evening was cool not cold although he found it cold, The moon seemed so huge and close and the stars so many in the clear night sky, we could hear the sound of the sea, the seating was large cushions placed on matting of reeds over the sand. I didn't fear at all being alone with this almost stranger, he did most of the talking and explaining, I was getting tired so he called a taxi for the short journey back, his appartment was outside the gates to the side a building for the staff.
The following day we the family, coupled up with a few other guests in the hotel invited us to go snorkling with them, one of the men spoke Arabic which was a help when communicating with the locals, we hired a boat which took us out to the sea of Tiran Island waters, he had a bad ear through deep sea diving previously in the week, so didn't take to the sea but helped us put on our snorkling gear, Steph and a lady another of his party went off hand in hand enjoying going further out to sea while I stayed closer to the boat, underneath me I could see many fish and a huge stingray about 6ft long could be larger swim close underneath me, I enjoyed myself but decided to come out of the water it was a bit of a struggle for me which I couldnt explain then, but when I got on deck I gave out a loud belch of wind, apparently my apparatus was not a good fit and I was taking in water, the young man took a picture of me in my gear.
The following day Steph and the party had gone out for the evening together as they were leaving next day. Paul and I stayed at the poolside in the evening chatting to the attendants. When Paul decided to go to our room, I followed a little later, as I was again to be escorted by the head waiter Medhat when he finished work, to take me on a tour of more parts others dont usually go, while we were in our room shortly after there was shouts outside get out! coming from our balcony below, I noticed went to the balcony I saw smoke coming across, Paul said I will go down over and you jump mum I will catch you although we had a ground floor room it was over 6ft drop and I said no I only just came up the stairway we will go through the doorway opening to the pool we will be safe there even with a fire the sea was walking distance, I grabbed our passports from the safe a warm wrap and flat shoes. when I opened the door I could see smoke coming along the corridor to our right and the stairs to the poolside was to our left. I was concerend of the other members who were watching a belly-dance display in a bedoine tent attached to our hotel. I got on the stage in front of the belly-dancer with my passport waving, shouting passporte' hoping whatever language if not English speaking would understand I was saying DANGER! the dancer bless her, must have thought me a exhibitionist she kept trying to just get in front of me.
Soon others got the message as I continued waving the passport and left the tent outside to the pool sitting on a wall which surrounded, at that time we could see smoke thick billowing from the outside which was toward the back end of the tent, a few of the boys were rushing down from the back end, from the small slope walkway to the pool, with large bowl containers filling with water from the pool and running back up, I called out lets help them. One women sat on the wall said: "Im on Holiday this would never happen at The XXX Hotel" ..I thought silly women.
I shouted any men here who will help? No one came forward, I said well! is there any English! women here? I felt shame on the men, one lady who I had met earlier in the day was born in Britain and had shared with me she had moved over to Australia she came toward me saying "what do you want us to do?" then others who were sat on or standing near the wall, men and women followed, I shouted commands.. Form 2 line, let the boys pass the dishes where you can fill from the pool and pass along and up the second line. This had just began passing along the water when we could hear the sound of the fire engine, and the boys came and gleefully said it's OK!
After all the Drama we were told OK! all under control. The lady who had said: I am on holiday! etc., was still sat on the wall with her husband. I learned later she had complained and demanded to be housed at another Hotel.
As I had arranged to meet Medhat outside the walls of our Hotel I said to Paul see your OK I will be back later, of course he knew of my arrangement goes without needing to say.
I sat on a small wall outside the Hotel waiting where there was a Taxi parked alongside, It was a short while when he becconed me to come sit inside, I left the door open and sat and chatted he explained to me he was a bedoine and earned a living also driving Taxi he gave me a little gift of a heart made with blue beads and I a token of thanks in return gave something which is the custom.
I decided after a while to leave and return inside the walls to the Hotel.
The following day at breakfast I saw Medhat who had a bandaged arm he apologised to me for him not meeting me but was in hospital as he got burned trying to rescue those who were laying flooring, apparently they may have been smoking and the fumes given off, whatever they were using had caught fire.
After Breakfast Paul, Steph, and I, went outside to the pool area where standing to attention were several young men staff clapping and shouting "HAPSHEPSUT! HAPSHEPSUT! continued....
I thought wow what an honour, this was Queen of Egypt a Great Leader, which is recognised as the adoptive mother, and daughter of Phaoroh who took Moses from the bullrushes in the bible where he grew up in the Palace and nursed by his natural mother.
The head in charge of the Towels where we would usually go along to collect ours for the pool, leading us smiling (while others continued clapping), to a place he had seen us sitting previously and towels were draped over the loungers, a gesture in appreciation, this they did for the rest of our holiday.
The party of young people we had gone out with snorkling in Tiran waters was leaving later in the day so we went to the reception area with them to bid them farewell.
The lounge which was beautifully furnished was still heavy with the smell of smoke which had travelled up the stairs from the bar below where the fire had started, such a pity as they were doing all they could to eliminate the smell with large bowls of extra perfumery to try disguise.
I saw the manager of the restaurant at the reception desk who called me to the desk in the Hotel lobby and asked me over to talk, saying would you like us to write a letter of thanks for what you did when the fire broke out, I replied please no thanks is needed, with a smile.
Later that evening we were in the Bedouin tent, where music was being played and one could dance. Although everything was free at the all inclusive Hotel, there was a corner of the tent reserved for a beduion tribe where you could purchase their cups of coffee.
We made our way over to them and ordered drinks when the Manager of the Hotel appeared and asked "who was it that sounded the alarm here of the fire?"
Oh dear I thought I was in trouble after stopping the belly dancers show, I owned up it was me and quickly added I had no idea where the smoke was coming from if it would be a danger to whoever was in the tent and it was far better than maybe have a fire and possibly death of anyone. He invited us to private party with Him explaining that for the inconvenience all drinks at the bedouin coffee would now be free to all, I imagine that this would have been paid to them by management of the Hilton.
A long while later that evening new arrivals came to the Large Bedouin Tent which incidentally was in the grounds and attachement of the Hotel where a lot of the activity take place.
A few people had gathered at the entrance and we went over to welcome them, I sat and explained because of a fire the coffee would be free to all. There were six new couples, we sat down and introduced ourselves by names and where we were from only, when it came to the last person to speak a lady, she added and I am a pastors daughter, which was very strange as no mention was made of me being a Christian. All these were from the UK.
Angelique and Steph looked so much alike you would have thought they were related and got on so well, what was even more unusual they shared the same birthdate she had come along with her partner a school teacher and they had just become engaged.
The following evening at dinner I went along to the bar table to get a drink to go along with my meal while standing there a lady approached and in a rude type of way demanded a drink from the waiter, I turned to her with a smile and said Please and repeated in their language min fadlak and thank you, shukran the waiter smiled at me bless him, while the lady raised her eyebrows.
I was later returning after my meal to get another glass of wine when the lady followed me from her table came alongside me and whispered in her accent I know your clothes are not expensive but you shine what is it you got? I said I have Jesus! she replied I want what you got! she told me a little of herself saying she was a Neurosurgeon from Russia, we returned to our seperate tables. We made friends chatting to several guests and one a lady from Lebanon, I mention this as later when reading you will understand.
Much of the time was spent with Angelique and her fiance' A bit of traditional history here. The tradition of wearing a ring for engagement originated from the Egyptians, who believed the circle was a bond between the two people who were to be married, but was initially first practiced on the fourth finger by the Romans, who believed this finger to be the beginning of the vena amoris ("vein of love"), the vein that leads to the heart.
With the days leading up to Christmas the Manager of the restaurant approached me asking would I go along to purchase some Champagne for the Hotel and in return we would have a free bottle of champagne and strawberries brought us on the beach Christmas morning, they explained only new arrivals could present their passport within 48 hours to buy. Imported alcohol is subjected to very high taxes. Alcohol is served only in the resorts and in licensed bars and restaurants, and sold only at duty free shops and at very few specialised shops (not in supermarkets). I may be one of the few who dislike champagne but Angelique, her fiance' and I thought a great idea where we could celebrate their engagement at the same time. Her partner held the money in his wallet and we were chauffered to our destination of the duty free shop.
He parked at the end of the street and waited. We went inside and it was relatively quiet while we walked around looking for Champagne but couldn't find, so I enquired and was told none! I asked to speak with the manager, this large man looked at me surprised and I repeated The Manager min fadlak (please)
He came along and said there is none, I smiled and shook my head and motioned with my finger to downstairs, we need 20 bottles and to celebrate, the couple are engaged to be married. He went over had a word with another who brought up what was asked for we went to the centre where another big man was at a till surrounded by a high counter to pay. A lot happened between and too much to add and would become a book.
As we were leaving the Boss man came up to me and said you are welcome to come again, I said this is not possible with my passport, he replied you do not need it you come again any time.
We put the box of bottles into the boot of the car when the Restaraunt Manager asked where is the receipt? we had forgotten to pick up, I was reluctant to go back as it was quite an ordeal in the first place trying to purchase but we returned this time to find quite a lot of people now there, no doubt they had just embarked from their aeroplane for their duty free, I went ahead of the queue, much eyes of the queue displeased and apologising to the man at the cash desk asking please the receipt for my purchase, who had to look through reams of receipts to find ours, needless to say we made a sharp exit.
While we were driving back the under/Manager explained that he understood me being reluctant as this was type of Mafia Yikes!! Oh man Oh man! me fraternizing with them!
The following early evening while in the bedouin tent in walked 3 tall men dressed in black wearing sunglasses, by the way the sun had now gone down, get the picture?
We had obviously been followed and now they were doing a deal with the Hotel manager wanting a cut.
The Champagne was highly priced for others to purchase for Christmas celebration which was an extra, I was told by the lady from Australia who had made inquiries who was no way going to pay for that.
Christmas morning Steph was up very early to climb Mnt Sinai to capture sunrise and take photographs, because of my disability this was one thing where I was unable to take part but I do have some wonderful pictures taken for me.
True to their word at the Hotel, Christmas morning we had a pyramid of strawberries brought to us on a platter with a bottle of Champagne and glasses as promised on the beach.,someone came along and obliged in offering by taking a picture of us. Angeliques fiance' decided he had enough sun and going back to their room, we chatted for a while then explorered our little area finding a crab in the rocky wall of the bay, later taking photo's of the marine life which we could see clearly in the colourful coral reef from the boardwalk to the boats. I got some beautiful pictures but unsure of the names, I saw a yellow eel a lion fish, beautiful coloured large fish besides many other swarms of little fish.
We decided to go back to the hotel, father Christmas had arrived in dress on His Camel at the top of the beach where we also noticed and met up with the lady from Russia whom I had explained the few phrases of thank you and please in arabic, who wanted a Photograph taken with me.
Steph and Paul went on ahead and I walked back slowly with Angelique talking of the things of God and Jesus, we prayed together and she accepted him into her life. Needless to say I was praising God and worshipping him speaking in tongues, it was such a joyous event.
Later that evening we met up in the bedouin tent, her fiance' said what have you done to my Angelique? she is different, I said I introduced her to Jesus so that she may have a place with him in heaven. He said I want to also, so I explained some, then we prayed and he accepted Christ into his heart.
Another evening we were on a top balcony having dinner when the lady from Moscow called up to me she was in the restaraunt and bar below, I had finished my meal so said to Paul and Steph see you in a bit I had made mention of her previously how she asked what is it about me, I began to go toward the staircase when the other side of the balcony the lady from Lebannon called out to me Elaine come to me, Steph shouted across OK Mum I will take the Lebonese which sounds so funny now.
I arrived at the table of the lady from Moscow and her company, she commanded them to leave us, when she said again, tell me how I want what you got, we talked some more and there with onlookers she followed me in praying asking Jesus to come into her life, this was close to the bar where the young Muslim men stood in attends and could no doubt hear us. It was so wonderful to be asked and so much more happened too numerous to make mention of all.
During our stay we hired a guide and travelled through the night across the Sinai Dessert, going through many checkpoints, where they had guns and shining the torch into our vehicle where we tried to get some sleep and our driver and assistant showing our passports at each point, at one stage it was such a long journey we needed the toilet, they stopped at a place where they escorted us to a little building no light and a hole in the ground to relieve oneself explaining you put your feet either side, while they waited outside the door of this hut for us.
Daylight and we stopped at a Cafe where many buses were parked we were able to buy refreshments and use the toilet where attendant was at the door with toilet paper which you had to purchase. What a surprise we spotted Angelique we later met up with them briefly at Cairo Pyramids. We had travelled along the Suez canal and through an underground tunnel, our first stop was at the The Museum I must admit although we had slept most of the way we were very tired but did enjoy our guided tour of seeing so much. The sarcophagus of tutankhamun Cairo Museum was a huge black type box with gold carvings there was cofins within cofins which enclosed the body is the only way I can explain, The sarcophagus and the three nested inner coffins were surrounded by four nested gilded shrines inscribed with the Book of the Dead and other funerary spells, the second and inner coffins, the inner coffin is solid gold and weighs 110 kg or 296 lbs Troy, the second coffin is wood covered in gold. We were told were not allowed to take photos.
Then onto The Pyramids, I was like a kid let loose in a sweet shop, got out of our car and proceeded to take pictures when a Policeman armed with Gun on a camel followed us as we were not with a party. He didn't look very happy with me so I thought I had better go with the crowd. Taking many pictures and joining up with Angelique for part of the time.
We noticed some children in what looked like a little jail as we were leaving and I asked what is that about, our driver and the other in our car explained these children would come along to beg and not to offend the tourists the police would round up and give them a feed.
We decided to buy a boatride on the Nile in one of the small sailing boats, unfortunately somehow when I was loading my camera with another reel, I left behind all those taken at the pyramids. But I still have my memories and Steph can let me have some copies of hers.
As we travelled home to our Hotel I took a snap of Cairo famous cemetery close to the blue mosque, many families have a small room where they can be close to their relatives graves, where they have water, gas and electricity, it is said often homeless would use.
Another journey this time by airoplane.
Our first impression of West Bank was Queen Hatshpesut's Mortuary temple, Her name means “the first respectable lady” said to have been the foster mother of Moses, the place where 60 tourists had been killed here in 1997 so we were closely guared with police and guns.
Hatshepsut's death is still a mystery I was told (but later learned more), 20 years after the Queen's death, her nephew destroyed everything connected with Hatshepsut. Neither her tomb nor her mummy had ever been found until they say Found Egypt's lost Queen in I think it was June 2007
"According to Dr Hawass: “Hatshepsut was the only female to rule in a golden period; the others ruled in weak periods. She completely changed the programme.”
She was the only woman to rule as a full pharaoh, even wearing the pharaonic headdress and wooden beard. She was referred to by male and female pronouns in strict rotation but was regarded politically as an “honorary man”. Trade blossomed under the rule of Hatshepsut, and the gold that ornamented the tomb of Tutankhamun was acquired in her time. Yet there seems to have been an attempt to erase all memory of her."
(search found on the web.)
Then onward to Theban Necropolis, the Colossi of Memnon guarding the outer gates. We took some snaps wher a man sat waiting for baksheesh (a tip) to have our photo with him.
We managed to see so much visiting many places in Luxor, going to the Valley of the Kings, the valley has become famous for the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun there were so many such as The Tomb of Ramesses. we also visited the Valley of the Queens, also Karnack and the open Museum, what I noticed there was a small temple with a altar no subscriptions and it reminded me of the holy of holies spoken of throughout the old testament of the bible the tabernacle it made me to wonder is this the Pharoah who had this made who acknowledged the living God of Moses, maybe the Father of the daughter who took Moses from the Nile. I can only imagine that while living in the palace Moses would have spoken to Pharaoh of things his mother had taught him or to maybe the daughter who brought this to light. I recollect some time in my reading of history that there was mention of One God but my memory is not serving me well of my discoveries. But needless to say there is a small area temple with no inscriptions.

Day before we LEAVE
I take my small light bible with me wherever I go. One afternoon Angelique and I decided to meet up and go to the sauna, we approached a man who sat outside at his desk who immediately asked me to tell him of my faith, we sat down I got out my bible and I know God lead me, I turned to the Old Testament From Genesis 18 and forward where it is written Issac was the promise of God to Abraham and Sarah,
Ishmael being the son of Hagar the handmaiden which Sarah had told Abraham to take which was wrong but God DID bless Ishmael.
I then turned to the book of Luke 19 I truly believe again was directed of God and reading to him of the triumphant entry, when he asked me to explain "the stones will cry out" I paraphrased in a way he would understand what Jesus was saying.
Jesus is the son of God, The Messiah, just take a look at Mount Sinai how marvelous is God's creation do they not cry out to your heart How awesome is our God to your spirit also? of course our God could make the stones to talk but felt that was a good explanation which he accepted, I feel even now I didnt adequately do justice to Messiah Jesus but leave that in the hands of Father God, he asked me would I leave my bible with him so he could read.
The following day we were about to leave so I went to the Sauna and Gym the attendant was not around but I couldn't leave my treasured bible which had notes contained where God had spoken to me. It was not on his desk so I took the liberty of looking into his top drawer when he appeared I explained I was looking for my bible, he didn't look very pleased that this women had looked into his personal draw, but I had no time to explain just thanked him. As I was returning to my room I met Stef and the young man who had been cleaning our room who was awaiting his tip/ the usual custom, bless him Christmas morning he had taken items of our clothing and made into a guy to sit on a bed in fact Stef found very scary when she came into our room but shows the ingenuity shown to make it a personal present at the Christmas holiday.

There is so much more in my memories of our visit but the best is the opportunity to share with others faith in knowing Jesus as my Saviour and the opportunity of planting seeds in some and leading others to Him in prayer.

I've been blessed with many awesome experiences, but one that stick in my mind is my experience in Egypt, It wasn't seeing the Pyramids, or visit to the Cairo Museum, seeing the open air Museum at Karnack, travel the nile or even see the Valley of the Kings.
 
It was the travel at night along the Sinai Desert road, looking at the sky and the thousands of stars.
Unfortunately what I captured on film was lost when I reloaded my camera and left the roll,when in a Feluka on the Nile .
So I needed to go online to download a image.
God told Abraham his children will be beyond the number of the stars.
 
 
 
Even more than this. I'm reminded how special I am to our Creator God, that he should care about me and Jesus call me friend.

A Testimony of Vision.
I was Bornagain of the spirit of God on 23rd Aug 1980 almost 31 yrs ago.
A few weeks after attending Church while sharing my Testimony I was told I should not go to Al-Anon, as do not need them now I have Jesus in my life. For those of you who are unaware, they help families and friends of alcoholics. I was unable to attend these meetings due to finiancial difficulties and was put on Loners Register.Coincidentally my Pastor was evangelizing in another part of Britain and asked to pray for him and the area. I received a letter from someone on the Loner list asking to correspond with me, to my surprise was in that vicinity. I struggled with what had been said to me at the Church, the same morning a Christian lady
called in on me I shared with her the letter and although knowing what was told me at Church, said Elaine I am sure God is telling you to continue with them...after she left.
Not wanting to offend God I prayed Lord Jesus, I need a sure sign from you, thinking maybe a prophetic word would be spoken or something like that for me when I next attending Church. Within seconds The Lord put a vision stretched like a TV on my wall and audable in colour. It was a sea-shore pebbled, to the left fishermen fixing their nets and boats not on the water but the beach. In the Centre a man with his back to me dressed in white Robe with long loose sleeves another run up to him pulled on his sleeve and said Master, Master, there is a man over there casting out demons and he don't even know you, with outstretched left hand but not turning around, The Man Christ Jesus said " If he is for me then he cannot be against me" and the vision went off the wall. I didn't know the scriptures and it was quite a while later that I saw this was in the bible. What I do know is that this was real and a sure sign from God. I thought these things happen to everyone once you are Born-again and when I excitedly told of what happened to me, a lady said "well I have been a Christian for 20 years now and I have never had a vision. I don't know if she believed me, but it mattered not. I have had many experiences of miracles and confident these are of God and was the encouragement I needed when on the milk. I do not need such as these today for I walk by faith and not by sight but do not mean that God in His mercy and grace toward me is not performing wonders for me today.
Blessings Elaine.

Elaine (aka Dunggate) Testimonies thread Elainebc_mmarie

I just replied to QOTW regarding how cancer have touched my life in a Forum where I am member.
It was so very had but did it.
I lost my Dad to cancer he was just 52 years of age.  I thank God he didn't suffer for long, although I missed out on time I would have wanted to spend with him. He went into hospital with what we thought pneumonia something like that.  They told Mum and I,  a month to 6 weeks at the most,  so we decided ask them not to tell him. He came home from hospital with medication.  It was so hard as he was concerned must get to work, his partner had bad asthma and Dad said he can't cope with the business, the partner brought the books to Dad to sort out. One day Dad talked about me getting married, I made excuse which wasn't exactly a lie that we couldn't afford right now, even though earlier we had talked of getting married but would now have to wait. Dad told us where he had cash kept in the house and said take it and if you need more tell me.  We couldn't get out of that.  
The next two weeks I spent much of my time preparing, getting a wedding dress, bridesmaid's dresses made by a friend and catering sorted. The brief moments I spent with Dad told him what I had been busy doing. A dear lady who Dad employed on special occasions to cater had been taken ill, and died suddenly, Dad said and get Enid, but not to wait on tables but to sit as a guest, I am crying right now thinking about it, I couldn't tell him Enid had died recently, at this point he was getting very ill and he said "I wont be able to walk you down the aisle", I responded with well, we can get you a wheel-chair.
I only saw Dad for short periods of time as I was also working and fitting everything in the date was set for the Church 25th January
that weekend Dad was taken into Hospital and sent me a message to get married and come to the hospital after in my dress and with the bridesmaides. It was early hours in the morning of my wedding day I was at my parents house, Mum and my brother was at his bedside when my brother was told go fetch me.
I arrived moments too late. Dad's last request was tell Elaine get married. I really wanted to call it all off, Dad's best friend came and talked with me, I was in a terrible state with swollen eyes, we put tea bags and cucumber on to take down the swelling and I put on my brave painted face and went ahead even though hours later.
It was a cold dark windy day, but as I was signing the register the sun broke through the stained glass windown and for just a moment  shined on me.  I think I can honestly write this is the most terrible time of my experience of cancer.
Even though over the past 2 years I had cancer scare myself. I even planned my own funeral and thank God a few months ago was told all is OK after they took biopsies and came back negative. So there is hope, there is a God who answers prayers, He knows best even though we may not understand. I will say again I thank God, he knew what was best for my Dad, he took him quickly.

Even so, just recently this year another, my cousin a bridesmaid at my wedding taken young with this monster disease.
This was very painful to write but we need to tell one another we know, we been there and if it helps someone, your not alone and we care and know.
Blessings Elaine.

Above picture of My Baptism. I was away early as had to travel some distance to a Church my daughter attend. I didn't know there was going to be so many Godincidences which blessed me.
As soon as I arrived in the foyer I was greeted and welcomed with free tea or coffee, sitting around were many homeless people one or two with dogs. I enjoyed chatting with a few people one lady for a long time who was wearing a T.Shirt Printed on ASK ME. Years ago I was involved with Homeless Action UK.
I heard beautiful music coming from upstairs singing in a strange language it was explained they were czechoslovakian Gypsies, and in another part of the church a group of Polish gypsies using other rooms.
I think it was eleven people who were baptised, the first was English speaking Mama Romany Gypsie, followed by her daughter, later another of her daughters and a son, it was wonderful to learn of why they were getting baptised.
I have a special place in my heart for gypsies and support a group of missionaries in (Asia Minor) of the bible, Turkey they also go the the outcasts, gypsies and homeless. 
I cannot put in order of service, but another young man was prophesied over and he confirmed he knew God was calling him to be a preacher, behind him was his girlfriend soon to be his bride. Another a older gentleman a War-Veteran 
giving his testimony of how he had killed many, a fighter pilot who had been shot down it took 6 weeks to fix his plane but God landed him safely and was healed instantly, I spoke with him later where he told me he was in the Falkland war showing me his scars of shrapnel wounds when he was shot down, and know God want to use him to fly missionaries because of his pilot experiece. 
Another nearing middle age man came that evening asking, am I too late to get baptised? He gave his testimony of being a drug addict, abused as a young child and God dealing with Him and healing, he asked can I sing?
Wow! unaccompanied sang of the clay I don't know if he had written himself how the potter (God) do not throw away the clay when broken but pick up the pieces and mould them back together again. 
Another lady told of how at 15 had a born again experience of God but even though had never left God, had not followed the plan he had for her life, she knows he has called her to be "fishers of men" and now given her life over to God. 
A young lad of 12 said I been through some stuff and felt there was a hole in his heart that God has now filled, he spoke with the wisdom of an adult which was acknowledged by the announcer. There was a group of young people stand up with roars and clapping as he took the platform to speak.
Another young Lad of 12 the son of the VIDEO Tech talked of how he had been brought up in a Christian home, he also felt there was a void in his life a space God had put in the heart of all the people he created only he could fill and that it was not RELIGION but RELATIONSHIP which he has experienced for himself.
These were the points that registered in my mind, all was wonderful.
I hope to get a DVD as A KEEPER. 
I did go along to their shop and picked up a DVD for £1 on the spirit of Nehemiah which captured my attention as I took my online aka name of Dunggate from this book of the bible. Another Amplified Bible by Zondervan purchase price £12.99 but I bought for £3. We do love bargains. I have looked in at some groups where I am member but now need to get on with what I feel needs be. 
Thank you for allowing me to share which was A Specially blessed day for me.
Blessings Elaine.

HALLOWEEN TESTIMONY
This is a Testimony to encourage you that The Holy Spirit will lead us into all truths. We may not be knowledgeable in the bible or some may even have a deep theological approach. But The Author of our Faith gives us his Holy Spirit and will teach us and protect us from harm. Let us be sensitive to the Holy Spirit in our walk with Jesus.
HALLOWEEN TESTIMONY
I become a Christian late August 1980 Baptised in the Holy Spirit at conversion. Wanting to learn more and more about Jesus I attended every bible study at church. I bring your attention to the fact that I had only been reading the bible for some 6 weeks. During the build up to Halloween my daughter aged 5 yrs came home chanting something she learned at school, We are witches of Halloween etc., I felt something wrong in my Spirit and asked God show me why I got this feeling. I turned to my bible and the page opened at Deut 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
Also, Leviticus 18 where I read Do not follow their practices then verse 21 Do not give any of your children to be sacrificed to Molech for you must not profane the name of your God I am the Lord.
As this was a long time ago I have had to do a search so that you may better understand what the passage is saying.
Molech…
The name of an image or idol, according to Aben Ezra, who observes, that their wise men interpret it as a general name for everyone whom they made to reign over them;
I carried on reading and another verse caught my attention
Lev 19 :31 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.
You will understand this to be. Do not turn to mediums or seek out mediums for you will be defiled by them.
On reading these things.
I went to visit a new Christian friend I had made and told her what I had found and she said, “yes I did tell them last year at school I don’t want my Sarah being involved with Halloween.” Her being an older Christian than me I said why not make arrangements to go and speak together with the Headmistress. So I rang for an appointment. I arrived at Barbara’s before our arranged meeting and we prayed together. Up to this point I thought Barbara would have been the better person to speak to the Headmistress as she had more knowledge of the bible than me. During our prayer time I felt strangely strong and after said, Barbara, I am the one that has to speak to her.
The headmistress was sat at her desk, counting the dinner money from the children I presume, as it was covered in small coins. I proceeded to tell her that I had recently become a Christian and I didn’t think it right for my daughter to be involved in the practice of the things they were doing for Halloween. She replied,” Oh! its just a bit of harmless fun,” I, said but the bible says Do not follow these practices. She replied “Besides this has been going on since time in memorial” (words to that effect)
I had my bible in my hand and had bookmarked it. I opened the bible and said but it says here:
Deut 18 Do not be an observer of the times. And do not let your daughter use divinations.
This is so amazing that God had given me the very answers in advance, to the things she was going to say to me.
At this point she stood up, hands stretched out leaning on her desk and said, “Don’t! preach to me the bible I am ordained to preach from the pulpit”. She came round from her desk and practically pushing me out through the door saying “ Yes, yes, I will have your daughter removed from this now, I am very busy goodbye.”
I prayed for this woman. That God would show her the wrong. Sometime later I heard her husband had died, and I blamed myself thinking it was because I prayed God would show her.
I met her on the street years later and there was a definite softening of the woman she smiled at me and asked me how was I? God is so good so awesome, repairing what had happened all those years ago.
