For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6
Recently, PRMI received the following ministry report from Mary Swierenga, a long-time PRMI friend and leader at Sunshine Community Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Mary’s testimony is representative of many around the US who are teaching the Dunamis material on the Holy Spirit so that the Father may be glorified and Jesus Christ exalted. Let’s let the light shine bright!
A few years ago the Lord put a burning desire in my heart to share the work of the Holy Spirit with our church members at Sunshine Christian Reformed Church.
Permission was granted and the Lord went ahead all the way as we stepped out in co-operation with the nudge of the Spirit.
Every provision was made for the class as far as room and technical equipment.
Twelve intercessors volunteered to pray off site for the class. Two more intercessors came weekly to pray on site.
Leaders came along side to facilitate the lab or equipping time at the end of each DVD, which had been wonderfully presented by Dr. Brad Long and team.
We have now completed the segments of the Dunamis teachings: Gateways to Empowerment, In the Spirit’s Power and The Power of Prayer. This means we have had a total of 30 classes with class size varying from 12 to 40. Wow! It truly has been an exciting dance with the Spirit!
What participants are saying
“I am sooo grateful for having this opportunity to take part of the Dunamis course. Through it, I’ve grown in my knowledge of the Holy Spirit which has manifest itself in experiencing the work of the HS in unquestionable ways! Praise God.”
“Learning to listen and co-operate with the HS has changed the way I live, the way I pray, the way I approach life. Dunamis has also given me a way to talk about what I have experienced.”
“I love the picture of the dance. As I learn more and more to wait for His signals as to how to move, I can feel myself more and more in rhythm and harmony with Him and His desires for me.”
“These classes have brought me much closer to the Lord. I so wish I had understood about the Holy Spirit earlier in my life. My life is changing.”
“I gained an awareness of the gift of the Spirit I had of singing in the Spirit but did not know it was a gift and how to use it.”
“Growing up in a church where the HS was only mentioned as the Apostles’ Creed was recited, it has been very exciting to hear validation of what I have learned and experienced in my life.”
“The best part about this class is that it reminds me of the scripture that says, “the expectation of the righteous will not be cut off.” So now I expect the manifestation of the HS in my life, and as a result I see him more and more in my life.”
“Attending and engaging in this course has opened my eyes and ears to how God’s gifting me. It also has convicted me that I need to be still to listen-lessen my busyness.”
“I was in a roll over car accident on a busy highway and the Lord spoke to me, “I will give my angels charge over thee.” It was the first time I heard a personal word (so exciting) and other than bruises and a few cuts I recovered fine.”
“I learned to listen, I learned to act and I learned to wait.”
One of the onsite intercessors has a vision while praying for the class. “I saw God’s hands working in soil, digging deep preparing it. The HS flowed like water between God’s hands and the soil. Then I saw new life growing between God’s hands. A planting of the Lord. I believe this is the work God is doing in us.”
I would encourage you to consider if the Lord would have you bring the Dunamis DVD Course to your church or home group.
