Thank You For Your Generosity!
October 30, 2015
In last months newsletter I let you know what was going on with Wholeness Ministries financially and the difficult position we were in. Many of you responded with generous donations for which I am very thankful. Your generosity helped us to catch up with our giving to our missionaries as well as the finances to run the ministry on a daily basis. I am thankful for those of you who gave one time gifts both large and small as well as for those of you who agreed to increase your monthly giving. That is most helpful. We believe it is our responsibility to be good stewards of these gifts and we are diligent in how we spend the money. Remember that we would not be able to function and reach the people we do without your generosity. Remember that all that we do you are a significant part of making that happen.
FREEDOM WAS INDEED HAPPENING! This last month we held our FREEDOM! Retreat which was led by Mark & Dawn Thompson. They have been doing these retreats for about seven years and they just seem to get better each time they do another one. This one was no exception. In addition to their teaching, which was excellent, Beth Kliewer taught on The Father’s Love. She did an excellent job in communicating how we often miss how much we are loved and how we can move back to that place of intimacy and understanding our value to Him. I taught on Restoring Your Spirit, which is a topic that helps people identify areas where they may have difficulty connecting with God or others. This teaching helps one understand how to heal those areas and bring about a restoration of your spirit in the way God intended it to be.
Mark & Dawn’s teaching on Forgiveness, Healing the Wounded Self-mage and Breaking Curses and Soul Ties was also significant in helping people identify these areas in their life and how to be freed from the wounds associated with them.
Many thanks to our prayer teams that did an excellent job of helping guide people as they prayed through the various issues associated with these topics. Without their faithful participation these retreats would not be as significant as they are. Keep watching our newsletter for the dates of our next retreat. You will want to tell your friends about this and invite them to be a part.

Why wait until heaven to be freed of the invisible burdens that oppress and defeat you? God wants you to face those burdens now, on this planet, and through the power of specific prayer be freed from them. Mike’s newest book, subtitled Baggage To Drop On Your Way To Heaven, is a guide to assist in discovering freedom from the invisible burdens that oppress and defeat you.
While new birth through faith in Christ Jesus is the instantaneous work of a moment, achieving wholeness is truly the labor of a lifetime. The deep healing of our brokenness, whether it’s physical, emotional, or spiritual, is often something we are incapable of accomplishing on our own. It goes against the grain of our cultural training towards independence; we assume that the prayers we lift to God on our own behalf ought to be enough. But we have prayed, and breakthrough has not come. What are we to make of it? My newest book will help identify where you need breakthrough and how to achieve it.
