I went on the MicroNETS course to learn more about the Bible and Holy Spirit to increase my general understanding and had no expectation of how the course would transform my life and faith in Jesus Christ.
Throughout the 9 days we had good teaching but I felt a bit restless and uncertain about my suitability on the course as I do not presently hold a ministry role in my church. During the course I experience my first encounter with the holy spirit and spoke in tongues for the first time. After this I began to notice the old me coming back my personality was transformed overnight. Thirty years ago, before my Brother was murdered and my mother was killed in a road accident - I was a happy ten year old with a gigantic quirky sense of humour always filled with joy and the love of laughter After these two traumatic events happened first in my childhood and during my early twenties, my personalty changed. I could still laugh but not with the same inner joy as I had before. As the course progressed I found that my old personalty started to return more and more and now I am completely restored to my former happy chatty self, someone who is always cracking jokes and finding an opportunity to smile and to talk to people and generate joy.
The course has revitalised my faith I now read the Bible with an uncalculateable new sense of confidence displaying understanding and am exhibiting biblical contexture insight and knowledge which I formally did not possess. Although I did not think I had a ministry role I am also finding that I am being guiding to use my personalty to evangelise to every person I meet in a discernable fashion about the wonderful life of Jesus and the importance of having a relationship with God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus wants you to glorify his name on this earth by being one of his disciples and modern day christianity sometimes forget this vital fact. God has restore me in ways I could never have imagined, giving me the spiritual discernment I craved and a new ability to truly understand the word of God. He has also as a passing gift given me my joy back and for that I will always be grateful.
I thank all the people involved in Pierrepont for creating this special Godly haven for Christians of all denominations to seek and find God. God's love is amazing. I highly recommend that you attend this course.
