I met the Pastors and various members of Christ Harvest Church in February 2009 when I had recently relocated to the UK from India. I was quite successful professionally in India and did not need to move abroad for any financial reason or for a better standard of living, but I was desperate to find a Church where the Love and Grace that the Bible describes is genuinely practiced and not just preached. I was born in a Christian family but had decided to leave Church when I was 19 as I was quite angry with the Church members and leaders for what I thought at the time was hypocrisy. It is only when I planted myself at Christ Harvest Church and made it a point to attend Church every Sunday morning, midweek Bible studies and also become a part of the worship band that I realized my perceptions had been wrong. The word that was preached at Christ Harvest Church not only restored my sense of identity in Christ but also sealed it in my spirit so strong that no one or thing can convince me otherwise. I know beyond everything that I am loved, I am healed, valued, cherished, respected, successful, victorious and above all I am a co-heir with Jesus. I have made genuine friends for life at Christ Harvest Church and I now have a strong sense of purpose and I KNOW that I WILL be in heaven when Jesus returns as King.
Four years ago I left a failed marriage, had a vast amount of debt with no job, was on state benefits to support myself and my two children and had little hope or direction for our future. Since plugging into Christ Harvest Church my life has been totally transformed. It is not based on luck or the family you were born into, it is about who you are in Christ and how much time you are willing to spend with God in order to know your calling and fulfil the plans and purposes He has for your life. This comes through obedience and simply following His directions,which is fundamental to the teaching of Christ Harvest Church. I now run a successful business, have come off state benefits so am able to provide for my family and have a goal to be the person God created me to be and to fulfil ALL His plans for my life. I know that if I had not received the unconditional love, support and guidance and had not implemented the teaching I had received from Christ Harvest Church I would not be where I am today!
From the first time I heard the teaching at Christ Harvest Church I knew this is where I would get spiritually fed. When I began to apply the Word of God I experienced a great faith rise up in me. 3 years ago I had a stroke, the right side of my face was numb and paralyzed and I could not close my right eye. I could not chew my food and had to drink from a straw. Pastors Joshua & Reeba came to pray for me in hospital and at home. I told Pastor Joshua that I would be healed in 3 weeks because I didn’t have time for this attack. I began to put into practice what I had learnt from the teachings at Christ Harvest Church over the years. Every morning I looked at myself in the mirror and I began to confess the Word of God over my face and my life. I did this several times a day. I slept a lot and my brain felt like it was miles away. When the 1st week went by I didn’t see any improvement, however, my faith did not waver. During the 2nd week I thought I could feel a little tingle in my cheek. In the 3rd week, I began to see a great improvement and my eye began to close. Three weeks to the exact date that I told Pastor Joshua I would be healed my face was totally normal. I do believe if I had not plugged into the teachings at Christ Harvest Church and did not have the love and support from Pastors Joshua & Reeba, I would still have a paralyzed face. I know that Jesus healed me, that His Word is truth and I give Him all the glory and praise for my healing.
