I've not had an opportunity to share all the great blessings we have experienced since attending HFC, so here they are:

1. My spirit has awakened.

2. After years of praying to be filled with the Holy Spirit, my husband had been discouraged and had given up. Pastor Chas prayed for him, and within the week he was speaking in tongues.

3. I was working part time and turned in a request for full time work. I was told it was impossible - not gonna happen.  After service last summer, I felt the need to sow an immediate seed. Meantime, I had received a full time offer elsewhere, but I really didn't want to quit and take another job.  On the last day on my current employment contract, I received a call and my boss said that against her desire, she was going to go ahead and offer me full time employment!

4. Pastor Joni had an altar call for "female issues" and I went to the front and she prayed for me.  I received my healing and recent tests reveal all is normal!

5. For years I had suffered almost daily from headaches. There was a call for headaches, I responded and I've not had a headache in almost 2 months.

6. There was an altar call for neck pain, and again I responded. I recently found out that I had suffered trauma to the neck and had issues with discs in my spine. After prayer, I have been pain free!

I can't put in words how blessed we are to be members at HFC. When we started visiting, I cried every time we pulled up in the parking lot. At the time I didn't understand it, but now I know that while my flesh was resisting, my spirit knew I was home.

On 7/9/13 Pastor Chas ministered on the Holy Spirit, specifically the benefits of praying in tongues.  The following Saturday, 7/12/14, a church member testified that on Wednesday he had a shoulder injury.  It was very painful and he couldn't lift it, move it, or use it much.  As a result of the message at church, that night as he drove home, he began praying in tongues.  And the more he prayed, the further he went in the Spirit.  Then he sang & praised in tongues.  He could sense the presence of God in his praying in tongues.  The next morning when we woke up, his shoulder was completely healed! He had no pain, and has full use of it!

Before I came to Houston Faith Church, I had been filled with the Holy Spirit, but didn’t pray in tongues regularly. I didn’t know that some of the purposes of tongues are for personal edification and for stepping into the supernatural.

I was afraid to pray out loud in tongues in front of others. I was afraid to pray in tongues in front of my husband!

When Pastor Joni would preach, she would often admonish the church to pray in tongues daily. I would think, Why does she keep talking about this every Sunday? Isn’t that enough talk about tongues?

Sometimes I would feel embarrassed, thinking, We might scare some of our visitors away. One Sunday in particular I was at the altar and I was standing next to Pastor Joni when she said, “ I just heard, someone needs to pray in tongues more often.” I knew in my spirit that this was the Holy Spirit speaking to me.

I sensed that I needed to do something different in my spiritual walk, but hadn’t made the effort to pray in tongues regularly.

I determined that during the Women of Faith Retreat 2013, I would press in to pray in other tongues. I did that and wow! It was great! There was a continual flow of the Holy Spirit, and I knew what God was calling me to do that day.

That experience changed my life forever. I came out of that time with the Lord a different person, with a purpose. There’s so much more to learn and know. I thank God for Pastors Chas and Joni’s leadership, for their commitment to contend for the supernatural in the church, their vision and courage.

It takes courage to promote tongues in a culture where tongues is discouraged and mocked. I’m so grateful we have pastors who love to pray in other tongues, and allow the free flow of the Holy Spirit in our assembling together. It is a blessing.

Now, when Pastors Chas and Joni mention tongues, inside my heart, I'm like YES! Get 'em! Tell 'em! And I am glad all those who come visit know that we unashamedly encourage speaking in tongues, using the gift that God has given us.

I have even gotten the courage to ask others I come in contact with, "Do you pray in tongues?" and then share about the infilling of the Spirit if they are not aware.

Thank  you Pastor Joni and Pastor Chas for allowing God to use you.  God is changing lives, one person at a time . . .
