Reflecting on Encounter 2019 [Video + Testimony]

[fa icon="calendar"] April 5, 2019 / by Ray Van Gilst

As we look back at Encounter 2019, we are again reminded of what a special time together we had at the Central Pacific District. As you watch this highlight video, may you be reminded about what God did at Encounter 2019 in your own heart and be encouraged!

It was a time of reconnecting, reflecting and repenting; a time of mourning with those who lost everything in Paradise, and a time of hearing what the Lord is going to do; a time of pressing into the presence of the holy spirit; a time of prayer, healing, and much, much more...

We wanted to share a few photos, prayers, and testimonies from our precious time together. Check them out below!

If you attended Encounter 2019, we encourage you to share your testimony in the comments below, or email the district office so that we can record and share what the Lord has been doing in and through his people of the Central Pacific District.

Here are two testimonies from our sisters at Radiant Life Christian Fellowship/Aposento Alto Church in Marysville, CA. They both shared their testimonies in the church weeks ago.

Pastor Carlos Palacios’ wife, Mercedes, who before Encounter had been dealing with intense pain in one of her shoulders, shared that while we were all praying for healing, a young man form the worship team started praying for her. She felt the Lord was healing her, but she didn’t realize that the pain was gone until she took her purse and placed it on her shoulder. Suddenly, she realized how easily she was able to grab her purse and to her surprise, her shoulder did not hurt at all! 

Domitila Contreras has suffered for more than 20 years with chronic back pain that debilitated and prevented her from normal life. Unfortunately, she was diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis due to an injury which caused pressure on the nerve roots in the spinal cord. She testified in the church that she completely healed during Encounter, and since then there is no more pain in her back!

A time of hearing from the lord

As a District, we went on a prayer walk through the Town of Paradise, which was devastated by the Camp Fire last November. During our time there we were all greatly impacted. Many people had words, visions, and prayers which they shared on a prayer wall at Encounter. Here are just a few below:

What was your Encounter experience like?

We've heard many testimonies of personal breakthrough, healing, and encountering the Holy Spirit, especially in the ministry time following Ron and Wanda Walborn's teaching sessions (if you didn't get a chance to attend, or missed one of the sessions, click here to watch the videos).

Again, if you attended Encounter 2019, we encourage you to share your testimony in the comments below, or email the district office so that we can record and share what the Lord has been doing in and through his people of the Central Pacific District!
