I first came to Ellel Pierrepont in February 2011 for a Jesus Heals Today conference. What a day that was - and what a wonderful first experience of Ellel and God's presence in a way that I had not known it before. Since then, I have been blessed to visit Ellel a number of times.
The real turnarounds so far for me took place in 3 significant events in 2012. First of all, Winter MicroNETS in February where for the first time ever, I sobbed my heart out to God and He was able to break through into my life in a way that I had been longing for for a long, long time but had never seemed to get to. God did an immense healing work in me that week - breaking ungodly soul ties that had shut Him out of certain areas of my life and helping me to become more rooted and grounded in His love.
However, it was at the 'Getting to the Root of Fear and Lies' weekend in April that even more significant changes took place. For the first time ever, I experienced what it was to be loved by God, to know Him as my tender Father and to rejoice in that love. I was important and I mattered to Him and that totally changed my perspective of myself and of Him. I will always treasure that weekend because God did many amazing and incredible things.
Then, I was fortunate to come to another Jesus Heals Today session in May and was able to bring some friends from my church which was a testimony in itself. God revealed to me that I was His 'beautiful daughter of the King of kings', a truth that I have had to guard and am still guarding as His truth works its way into the very depths of my heart.
God has been opening me up in so many ways to His love and faithfulness. I am still learning and I am so thankful for what God has done and also to all the faithful and prayerful people involved in Ellel. Thank you for expressing God's love and for being faithful and obedient, even when the sacrifice has cost much. May God bless you richly and continue to establish His work, for the glory of His Kingdom and to the lifting up of Jesus. Amen.
