The last two days have been amazing! I think it would be safe to say that The River at Tampa Bay Church is a soul winners paradise. Sunday morning I almost came unglued when Pastor Rodney shared about the group of men who were in someones home watching football and when the game was over, while channel surfing, they stopped on the broadcast of our evening meeting. One of the men called the ministry to ask us to please explain what just happened to his three friends who were rolling on the floor laughing and crying.
Then, on Sunday evening I helped out in the phone room taking calls from people throughout the nation and around the world. The phones rang off the wall! There are so many hungry and hurting people out there. I led seven people to the Lord and prayed for an eighty-one year old grandmother who had sore knees. All the soreness left and she begin bending her knees and walking around the house praising God for what He had done for her.
Today I took a team soul winning in a very depressed neighborhood. Three people received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. A man who had just gotten home from the emergency room was in so much pain he could hardly walk. We led him to the Lord and prayed for him. All the pain left his back. He was amazed. He said, “Now I can go back to work.” In only two hours we went door to door preaching the Gospel and prayed the prayer of salvation with seventy-six people. These are the days that were just a prayer and a dream only a few years ago. How awesome is our God! -Mary F
I have had an awesome experience so far at RBI; God has been doing some amazing things in my life and through my life so far and I Know that it is only going to get better. I just want to share a quick testimony of how God used me in the call center last night. I was fired up to get on the phones and was expecting God to show up and do some amazing things. I had a sweet lady from Jamaica who called needing prayer for an oppressive spirit that had been showing up in her bed room every night at 4 A.M. At first when this precious woman shared this with me I was a little taken back.
I had to completely trust God that He would show up and run these demons back to the pits of Hell! I began to pray in the Spirit, and build my self up; then I then began to pray and read the script and command every foul spirit to take their hands off this woman’s heart, soul, and mind. I shared with this lady what the Word said about the authority we have in Christ Jesus and that she has the authority to command these foul spirits to take there hands off of her.
This precious woman began to speak in unknown tongues and was set free and delivered right then from the power of Satan. I thank God for RBI and the impartation they we as students are getting from Pastor Rodney and the staff here. God is working through Pastor Rodney and RBI to raise up world-shakers for the kingdom of God. I am so excited to just be a part of what God is doing in and through this Bible school. I cannot wait to see the finished product of myself and different students that God is raising up to turn this nation upside down by the power of the Holy Spirit. -Mark T
