This last weekend, an Ecounter Retreat as part of the JIL 12 was attended by 36 delegates from JIL British Columbia churches as Batch 14. Two days filled with opportunities to discover one's self in relation to God's word, the Cross of Jesus and discovering the Holy Spirit's power through His anointing. No one could really foretell what could happen. In the past encounters, it was always special for each and every batch that went through. No two Encounters are the same and that's a fact we all have genuinely discovered and acknowledged.
God has always something special for the delegates because each one has their own needs that God will meet. I had only two assignments to discuss: "Deliverance" and "Immersed in the Spirit." Seeing how God moves afterwards as a witness of transformation is unbelievable. Nothing would match what occurs in the lives of people ready to allow God to change them from inside out. You just have to be there to understand what I'm talking about.
If you have not yet experienced to be in one...Find out and go for it. What do you have to lose??? Lots and more to gain.
Also, I would like to commend those who have been part of the Encounter as Team members doing their given assignmets with joy. They are a huge source of encouragement to all delegates. Thanks for being there and congratulations to all who are in the front and behind of this great event for God's glory alone! Keep up the good work!!!!
