In Their Own Words

Read what one participant said this week about her experience in a Living Free Community small group inside of a county jail.

"I am so thankful to this class because it has given me such hope and inspiration that I can carry on with my family when I get out, because I have destroyed my life in the past because of the drugs and Satan that closed my eyes to the good things that could have happened in my life. Thank you for the time and consideration you have put forth to the class that I have attended."
We give God all the glory!

Testimonies from Outcomes Research

During the last couple of years, we have been doing outcomes research with several churches and ministries. Recently, we received a new batch of completed surveys from a church in Missouri.

Here are a few comments from the question, "What specific changes have you made in your life as a result of Living Free grous?"

"More committed to prayer and Bible study."

"Identifying incorrect thought processes and wounded emotions, like shame, fear and guilt."

"Sharing stuff I usually wouldn't share. Dealing with my problems rather than covering them up with drugs."

All the glory to God!

Good News from Iowa

Just in the last year Jeff Arp, Director of Teen Challenge of the Midlands Urban Center in Des Moine, Iowa, has been developing a non-residential component to their residential ministry. The residential program has been using the Living Free material in weekly support groups for people on probation. This Living Free community-based effort, called Lifeline Connection, has led to discipling people in the Word of God who would not or could not go into a long-term program. The following is a testimony from Jeff:

"This past week we had a milestone. Through our relationships, another couple started coming to Lifeline Connection and meeting with me for personal mentoring. My intention was to use the Life-Plan to help him overcome some life-controlling problems but we didn’t get very far into that process until we had a powerful Lifeline Connection meeting a couple of weeks ago and God began to reveal some things and God also used the other members of the group to share some things. As a result of that meeting, we had a man check into the Teen Challenge program at Colfax this week. I don’t believe that would have probably happened if it weren’t for the relationships that developed through Lifeline Connection."

Wow, what a great example of how the support group helped this man come to the realization of his need for further help. To God be the glory!

  • 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
