TESTIMONIES FROM PARTICIPANTS OF PAST TRAINING SEMINARS:
"This training was a powerful time and I feel like the Lord has taken me to a deeper level with Him as a result, even while He was teaching me how to do that with others."
"I came in from working at a pregnancy crisis center with little knowledge on post abortion. This was a fantastic tool for me to understand the heart of these women and what they may have been through. I can't believe how it made me feel and the desire I now have to minister in this area!"
"Such a beautiful ministry that is devoted to the healing of wounded hearts of abortion through the love and blood of Jesus."
"I am overwhelmed by the amount and depth of healing available and poured out on those wounded by abortion. The healing is profound. The priciples used and the awareness in regards to the spiritual battle are so powerful. This ministry exudes His love. Nothing is wasted. What a powerful work God is doing through Deeper Still. I am blessed to have received the training."
"The entire training seminar was beneficial. One of the things that impacted me the most was hearing from a couple of the men who have been to retreats....their testimonies were incredible!!! it was tremendous to see men, strengthened in the Lord, and yet so gentle and tender in their hearts."
"Words cannot express enough how amazing Deeper Still has impacted my life. I am excited to go through training and be a part of the team!"
"After attending my own retreat, I wanted to offer retreats in my home state. This training helped to equip me with the framework of beginning a chapter. Heaven2Earth was a powerful time of intercession! The Lord's presence united our hearts as we interceded for our nation, the abortion wounded, and their families."
"The love for the abortion wounded was so evident in this team as they explained the approach to healing the Lord has shown them. They obviously seek God's presence in all they do and I felt honored to be a part."
"This training has given me an understanding of how to minister with more love and compassion in not only this area, but other areas as well. Deeper Still is a one of a kind ministry!"
"The training gave me a clear understanding of the complex nature of even my own abortion wounded heart. Knowing there are others with wounds, I now have the knowledge to comfort and help others with many afflictions as well. It was clear that Karen and the staff and volunteers operated from His love for us all."
"During the training, I know God was taking me "Deeper Still" personally."
