May 2013 Letter from the President

Next Steps

Dear Friend,

We are thankful that many people have been able to find freedom from problems that hold them back from a full and productive life in Christ–problems such as negative attitudes, emotions, relationships, behaviors, and addictions.

Living Free focuses on discipleship that is based on God’s Word, delivered by God’s people, and empowered by God’s Spirit. The emphasis is on responding to God’s promises in ways that result in spiritual growth, as described in 1 Peter 1:8.

The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. (NLT)

When people apply these principles, the results are remarkable, and the benefits extend to the entire family and community.

Consider this testimony from a missionary to Uganda:

“Living Free” has been used among death row, life sentence and other inmates with remarkable results; the conversion of prisoners (including Muslims), criminals asking forgiveness of their victims, and even kinder treatment on the part of prison guards have been in evidence over the years.

– Professor, Covenant College

The impact of Living Free is far-reaching because we work globally with churches and Christian ministries in many countries. The photos on this page represent only a glimpse of how God is using the reproducible Living Free ministry model across the United States and around the world.

Together, with God’s help we plan to reach millions more. Would you please consider a gift to Living Free today?

  • 2013 Living Free Outcomes Results

    We are excited to announce the 2013 Living Free Outcomes Research Findings. Over the last three years, we have collected questionnaires from participants in several different ministries in many different states. This year we gathered the questionnaires from 5 different ministries who are reaching out to their communities through non-residential support group settings in 5 states. There were 181 people in 22 different groups represented.

    The data confirms the effectiveness of Living Free because of what God is doing through His Word, His Spirit and His people. The data reflects that no matter the location or facilitator, lives are being transformed and families restored by God through many local Living Free and Living Free Community ministries. We give God all the glory!

  • Testimony from Rwanda

    God does heal the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds (Psalm 147:3). Read the following testimony we received today regarding today's Living Free Every Day devotion provided by Living Free ministries.

    "Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Thank you so much for the message of forgiveness. Jesus Christ recommend us to forgive if we want to be forgiven. For us Rwandans, we are experiencing forgiveness and now we are free from the bondage of unforgiveness. When you forgive, even physically, you are released. I am telling you this because I have forgiven those who killed my parents and relatives. But, ask to be led by the Holy Spirit who will enable you to forgive those who sin against you."

    Blessings,

    Jean de Dieu
