Our Sovereign and Intimate Lord Jesus – transforming lives
with His Love, Word and Spirit in the UK!
From Emma Longhurst of Gerrard Street Baptist Church in Aberdeen, Scotland, reflecting on the two day conference, “It Is For Freedom”, and their church worship service November 4-6.
“It was an absolute privilege to be a part of the planning and organising of our women’s event “It Is For Freedom.”
Around 80 women gathered to hear Sylane Mack share God’s Word and join together in worship. To see women dance before the Lord in praise in response to God’s transforming power in their lives was truly amazing! Many women have commented that what they loved about the weekend was Sylane’s use of Scripture and how everything she said was based on and around it.
Five women shared personal testimonies of their Freedom in Christ in our Sunday morning service after the conference. So many hearts were blessed and so many of us set free from different struggles in our lives! God was at work and continues to be through the sharing of his Word and the power of his Spirit that weekend, and I am so thankful!”
“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”
– Galatians 5:1From Lorna Selwood and Lynn Shaw of Saint Mary’s Parish Church in Kings Worthy, England, writing for their church area newsletter regarding the conference, “Harvest of Hearts”, November 12.
“There are no actual words to adequately describe our special day at the Chapel Hall in Springvale. We were all blessed beyond words, for which we thank God our heavenly Father. Our day was set up in “Café Church” style…with 25 ladies attending. Sylane Mack…from Transformed by Grace – a speaking engagement and counselling organisation in the USA – was our speaker. This was Sylane’s second visit to the Worthys. We were very blessed in our worship at the start, singing specially chosen songs that spoke about God’s love. We were then led by Sylane, using truths from God’s Word, as she spoke about Jesus: who is healer of hearts, holder of hearts and harvester of hearts. After a lovely lunch, we completed our time with the breaking of bread, Communion and personal ministry, offered to anyone who came forward. Two ladies came to know Jesus as their Saviour for the first time! Wonderful! We are so thankful to Sylane Mack for her ministry to us. We will never forget her and hope to see her again, if God enables. One word for this day – AMAZING. Thank you Jesus!” – Lorna Selwood, Churchwarden
“A little bit of heaven – I knew this day would be special. Didn’t know it would be that special! Or should I say this special, because the waves of blessing continue to flow on reaching others still, because God is still with us here, in the present moment. Sylane Mack came and ministered to us again, under the heading “Harvest of Hearts”. She has an immensely powerful testimony (you’ll have to read her book ‘Convinced!‘ to know just how moving AND powerful it is – but be warned the early chapters are extremely hard reading). Some found Jesus’ love and accepted it into their hearts for the first time! Some became ‘convinced’ again of the truth of God’s love. Some of us were just blessed and refreshed! And some are still seeking to have their questions answered, and receiving them! I praise my Lord every time I think of the work he did through his servant Sylane. God visited us, blessed us and showed us a better way. Thank you Lord, thank you Sylane, thank you dear Lorna for arranging such a fruitful day. Keep praying! God IS with us!” – Lynn Shaw
From Mandy Watsham Dunstall of Broadway Baptist Church in Chesham, England, reflecting on the two day conference, “Whole-Hearted” (aka “Harvest of Hearts”) and their church worship service November 18-20.
“When Sylane told me that she was coming over here in the autumn of 2016 to do a conference, it immediately became an opportunity for the possibility of a similar event in Chesham. We had had Sylane visit before and give her testimony talk to powerful effect, but here was something we hadn’t explored before – a more in depth look at forgiveness, how is it really possible, and how we can experience a deeper more wholehearted freedom in faith and connection with God.
Sylane as a communicator and teacher of what is to be found in the Bible is astonishingly gifted! Yes, I knew she had an amazing testimony and that her life reflects the true meaning of saving grace, but to hear her teach and unpack the Bible is refreshingly real. Sylane communicates with humility, grace, humour, love, wisdom, purpose and passion and applies the age old truths and familiar texts in the Bible, to life today, in an extremely relevant and real way. It has clearly been born out of her real life experience, and then has been applied to her own life during the process of her becoming fully free and alive in Christ. The thing is because she has been through so much and come out the other side fully healed, whole and happy, makes it obvious that these Scripture verses that she unpacks are spoken about with such confidence because she has had to use them and seen them become a working reality for her personally! You can’t argue with that! It’s real. Sylane has applied them and relied on God’s Word in her own life, and she is living proof that this stuff actually works!!!!!
This is so perfect for a church weekend away that the whole church can experience that there really is freedom from the past, and a deeper understanding of who God is, how much he loves us, and how he can help us deal with any of the things that might hinder us. Those spiritual dwarves for example!
Both the men and women thoroughly enjoyed and benefited from this weekend with Sylane on so many levels. God was so evidently at work through Sylane and, therefore, it impacted all of us that were there as God’s Spirit gently guided her and hi-lighted different things for each person. There was a beautiful atmosphere but it wasn’t at all intense – helped along by Sylane’s excellent communication skills and realism!
I think I can speak for all of us when I say we left encouraged, empowered, challenged and more convinced of God’s amazing love. As my husband said, “when Sylane comes along she is a game changer for Christ!” She is in tune and fully prepared to listen and be used as a vessel to communicate whatever truths God needs her to!
Thank you Sylane and Tim for coming and serving us in such a way. You are bringing some hope to this crazy world by sharing your story and teaching from real life application! Wow and two more words – simply fabulous!
Thank YOU ALL for your faithful prayers for each of these ministry events!
GOD ANSWERED! GOD WON! LIVES ARE TRANSFORMED IN JESUS!
