5 stars!

Right from the introduction and all through the event, I felt nothing but God’s presence, His loving touch, His desire to encounter us where we were. What helped me most was Father Patrick’s prayer at the beginning before we did any activations. I was nervous, unsure, having done this once before, I felt totally inadequate.  How Father prayed with us and guided us through the surrender of each of our senses to the Father’s will was extremely helpful and allowed me to feel God’s presence and know that this was really about Him communicating his love to me in a very special way.  It took all the pressure off and made me realize that this was totally not about my performance!

I was awed by the two speakers, by their ability to speak to our hearts, by their very obvious deep relationship with the Lord.  They walked us through a process and made me believe that I could actually hear the Lord who wanted to talk to me.

Doing this online does not convey the feeling you would get from being together.  However, it has the decided advantage that there are fewer distractions because we are in control of our own space.  It does mean that the music ministry isn’t half as effective.  I have to admit that I like to sing and get my body moving with the music and it’s hard to do that with a video.

The activations were amazing – short enough time frames to keep us focused, clearly directed as to the intent and timing, non-threatening.  We were given permission to be learners and we were able to tell others that as well. It took all the stress and worry out of it for me.
Thank you for helping to put on such a wonderful event.  May the Lord bless all that you do.

I especially enjoyed the time of Team Prophecy. Our team connected so well that we became fast friends and exchanged contact info to keep in touch and to support one another in growing in this gift of prophecy. I would recommend anyone to take part in this conference!
