"[After going through a recent separation], I wasn't sure if I'd be able to financially make it on my own with my kids. We were 2 years behind on our HOA dues and several months behind on our mortgage payments. I had no idea what I was going to do. The only options I had were to move to another city and live with my mom or believe and have faith that God would work it out somehow. I had applied for a job not too long before this ...and when I went in for my second interview, I was hired on the spot! [The new job was exactly what I wanted, and came with a higher salary & all of the benefits I'd prayed for], so I didn't have to move anymore!!

In October of last year, I started having problems with my A/C. The devil & his fiery darts kept putting thoughts in my head about how expensive it was going to be and how I had no money to pay for the repairs, and how would I find an honest person to fix it and not overcharge me. However, [the Holy Spirit] inside me assured me that God would make a way, He always does, and that I shouldn't worry! [One day soon], my boss came to me and said, 'Congratulations, you have been awarded a bonus of $1,000 as a token of our appreciation for a job well done!'...God used him to bless me, and I was able to get my A/C fixed! Through the help of some HFC saints, I was able to find someone honest, and it only cost me 1/4 of my bonus! I had money left over!

In November, not even a full year of me working at this new job, I received an 8% raise! (Raises only happen once a year, and they usually occur in March.)...AND, In February of this year, I received my annual bonus, and with that bonus I was able to pay the HOA a total of $2,100 (everything I owed them, AND this year's payment as well, in full)!! [AND then] in March, I still received my annual increase...of 6% (when the maximum anybody ever usually gets is only 3%)!!! The director increased the normal amount of my raise!!!

At this point, it had been a year that I'd been struggling with catching up on my mortgage payments. I now owed over $8,000 in past due payments and late fees. Although I was making monthly payments, the late fees from previous months kept adding up...after everything God had done for me recently, I knew He would come through for me again. I had peace in my heart and didn't feel worried or anxious at all. Last week, I received a call that [the mortgage company] was able to work my past due payments back in to the loan and they forgave my late fees!! $8,000 was gone!!!

My fresh start begins now!! All of this happened in a little over a year! My heart rejoices with thanksgiving!! God was with me through it all, and He still is!" - HFC Member

"As a teen, I was told [by a gynecologist] I would not be able to bear children. It totally broke my heart, but I carried on with my life. After getting married in 2011, I yearned for a child but thought it was never going to happen. When we moved to Houston in 2012, we started going to HFC and I was totally blessed by the healing services and testimonies of many at church. I knew God doesn't deprive His children of what they desire. In 2014, I told my husband about my desire and we started trying for a child. During one of the services at church, the Lord showed me a vision where I was holding a baby girl. The Lord further confirmed to me about this through friends at church. Knowing about my medical condition, I was advised by my relatives to visit one of the most prestigious fertility hospitals in India. When I went there, the doctor told us that we both had to undergo a surgery or else we wouldn't bear any children. I didn't feel right in my spirit and we both decided to walk away from that suggestion. We continued to try and I prayed to the Lord with all my heart that I wanted to conceive and bear a child without IVF or any hormonal treatments. In April 2017, the Lord heard my prayer and I conceived. On January 21st, 2018, we were blessed with a beautiful baby girl and we have named her Aria, which means 'lioness of GOD', for we truly want her to be raised as God's warrior!" - Rachel S.

  • "My husband retired last March. When you retire your income and social security are fixed. When the church started the year long building fund pledges, we gave a one-time amount. And I asked my husband how much he wanted to give monthly. When he told me how much, I gasped on the inside and for a split second thought we can't do that much. Then the next second, I said to him, "Awesome! If God put that amount on your heart, He'll provide!" Well, we have been able to give that amount each month. Glory to God! And since January, our fixed income has increased $500/month!" - D.E.
  • "My wife and I purposed in our hearts to take some money out of our savings towards the pledge for the church building. It's not like we have so much, but we decided to make the sacrifice to take out of the money we are saving towards a home. Some days after we made this decision in our hearts and even before we made the pledge on paper, someone blessed us with three times the amount we purposed to pledge. We just want to thank God for this miracle. We were not even expecting anything, we just wanted to contribute to the work of God and He rose on our behalf. All glory to God." - Victor A.
  • "This year when we heard about the pledges for the building fund, we knew what we had to do. Without really praying or talking about it, I threw a figure out to my husband of what we should give. He said double it. I was a bit reluctant but said OK. Then he said, 'No, give more.' So we settled on an amount, confident it was what God wanted us to give. The next Sunday was "Pledge Sunday" and we put in our pledge card and committed it to the Lord. The money would come from some vacation time my husband cashed in at work, as well as some money we had saved for some other purchases. Well, the EXACT Sunday we pledged, before we even left the church building, a church member blessed my husband with a (somewhat pricey) tool he needed for work! Our money was already coming back to us! The following week, while going over the bank statement, I noticed my husband was paid TWICE for the vacation he cashed in. When he went to his boss about it, he said they could not find ANY record of the double payment and told us to KEEP IT!! Then, the following week we received another deposit from his job (in error) for a different employee named Chris which was much more than what his deposit should have been. Again, they just left it in our account!! We believe these were supernatural deposits for sure! We know it's just the beginning of the abundance God has for us as we sow into His Kingdom! Thank you Jesus!" - Anita O. 
  • "The Lord abundantly blessed us!!! Last week, Ronnie & I were able to easily give our one time pledge gift because I received paid mandatory education hours for my job. I received my biggest paycheck ever. We realized this was perfect timing. Praise the Lord" - Karin B.
  • "With great enthusiasm, I want to tell you both about what's been going on and how God has blessed me with $1,000 that I am planting today for our new church. [Elsa continues with details about being out of work for several months due to caring for her mother after a serious car accident.] ... I was checking all my old emails that were over a month old and the CEO emailed me that I was awarded $1,000 due to being evacuated during Harvey. I immediately knew there was no better place than the building fund for my new church home to plant this seed. Pastors, I asked Jesus for $1,000 one day when y'all were up front talking about pledges. Today I mail my check with so much joy and and rejoicing to be wanting to do this and it was made possible by Jesus! [Elsa's letter then continues with MANY thanks and praises to Jesus for the many ways He protected and preserved her mother and daughter in the wreck and His provision for her during this time.]" - Elsa G.
  • Sharon S. started to pledge $750 for the building fund, but the Lord said to double it. She thought Uh Oh...but she did it! In December 2017, her pledge was still outstanding. One day, she reminded the Lord that she needed to fulfill her pledge. She didn't have the money, and the only way to get it was for Him to give it. The next day, she got an unexpected call saying she was being sent a check for $2,200 - enough to pay her pledge and buy Christmas gifts!

- "Since August of last year, I suffered with a horrible rash behind both ears...the pain and itching were pretty much constant and I was only able to sleep a couple hours at a time during the night. The doctor could not give me a reason for the rash...the only thing that helped were steroids but you can't take those forever. P Joni prayed and then told me to count to three and grab her hands. I did, and fell back in the Spirit. It was so peaceful laying there. I thought I'm gonna just float in this river until God tells me to get up. Now, my rash is completely gone, gone, gone! Thank you Jesus!" - Dawn E.
- "Sunday morning, I had pain in my lower back, legs, and knees. During Praise & Worship, I went up to dance in the River. The pain in my back was gone when I went back to my seat! Then I was having pain & tingling in my legs and right knee. P Joni made an altar call for some who were having tingling in their bodies. I went up...I felt the river flowing, such joy, and the love of Jesus! The pain and tingling left my body, legs, and knee!" - Jackie M.
- "I received a double blessing at the recent Healing Service. When P Joni said, 'The Lord is here', I kept envisioning Jesus walking to and fro at the altar. And when she ministered on Ezekiel 47 about the rising waters representing God's increasing anointing, I kep envisioning His anointing flowing like high water down the aisles. Sitting there in the service, the Lord's presence and anointing were so real to me. I believed I had already received healing for my right knee at my seat, so I didn't readily come down to the altar at P Joni's invitation. But because the presence of the Lord was so thick, I finally went down...and boy am I glad I did. Otherwise, I would have truly missed out. After P Joni prayed for my knee's healing, I felt a spiritual release and went down to the floor where I laid under the Lord's anointing. When I got up, I turned to go back to my seat, but quickly realized I could not. The Lord had something more for me. While I stood tarrying at the altar, the presence of the Lord consumed me, bowing me from my knees. As the tears flowed from my eyes, I repeatedly thanked Jesus until eventually falling to me knees. It was so glorious and I was so happy, because I hadn't been touched like that by the Lord in a very long time." - Sheila T.
- "I had a bad pain in my neck and I couldn't tilt my head back because of the pain and stiffness. All my neck pain left, I can now move my neck and tilt my head freely! Now, 2 weeks later, and still healed!" - Anita O.
