 Testimony from an Inmate

 

My name is ­­­­__________ and I’m here at the T.P.F.W in Nashville TN.  Yall had come here on January 27th (Sunday).  I just wanted to write to yall to tell you how special that service was to me.  I had never felt what I had felt that day. After Pastor Tony had prayed over me that day I felt very content and happy.  He had never met me before and it was surprising to me for him to bring up my past. I had been dealing with a lot of situations with a few family members so when he told me that God can restore families I was so shocked!  He had definitely made me very emotional but it wasn’t a bad feeling by no means, it was definitely a wonderful feeling! Pastor Tony had also told me that something was going to happen to me that would be miraculous and it would happen very soon.  I feel like it already has happened because my faith has gotten so much stronger plus I had just been baptized a few hours before yall had shown up here that day.  I definitely feel God’s presence with me all the time plus I love God so much  and I just can’t get enough. But there was something very special that I’ve been waiting on for a while now that had finally happened that Sunday night on Jan, 27th.  I got to talk to my 3 boys on the phone for the first time since October 2012.  I’ve not seen them since June 2012. That was definitely God! They were so happy to get to talk to me.  But just wanted to let you know how special Soldiers of Light is to me and thanks so much for taking the time to come to TPFW.   I can’t wait to see yall again on February 24th!!

*This is my first time to attend the Soldiers of Light church group.  I have felt more of the presence of the good Lord than I have in any other church group I have attended.  My friend Suzanne asked me to attend with her.  At first, I was skeptical and when I did, I was showered with the presence of the Lord.  Thanks to her and SOL I may begin my journey walking hand in hand with the Lord.

 

Testimony from an inmate

 

Last month Pastor Tony told me to get ready for the return of my daughter and he prayed for me.  Since then, the Dept. of Corrections added a year to my sentence and I was accepted into a program that will help me with the problems that originally caused me to lose my children.  Things are happening so fast in my life now.  God has removed my desire for drugs and alcohol.  I am learning how to live clean and sober.  The classes I am taking will allow my 2 daughters and my son to come home.  I have more time now to pray and meditate.  I am becoming God centered and less self-centered.  My husband is in jail, please pray for us.  Please keep coming back to TPFW.  God is placing people in my life who are positive and spirit filled.

Pastor Tony told me something was going to happen in Feb.  Well, Feb 1, 2013 I got a decision back from the time set hearing 11/06/12 and I go up in May and will be home soon!

God wakes me up daily with a free mind.

 

Testimony from an inmate

 

Since SOL has come I have had a closer relationship with my mom and blessings has come to my mom and three sons.  I even had a hard time forgiving myself but Pastor Tony prayed for me about forgiving and since then I have forgiven myself. Pastor Tony you are an inspiration to the women at TPFW and MLCC.  Also the others that come with you.  I feel blessed and honored to know you all.  I also got prayer a while back that passing the GED.  Well on 02/20/13 I was told I passed!

I was at the December service for the first time.  Pastor tony prayed for my Hep C levels.  They were high, almost to the point that my liver was near shutting down.  3 days later, I had blood taken.  Within 24 hours, I went to medical, they told me my levels are back to normal.  Thank you Pastor Tony for that prayer.

 

Testimony from an inmate

 

“I love Soldiers of Light. I get so blessed each time they come to MLCC. Soldiers of Light rocks for Jesus!” “When SOL comes I can feel His presence over me.  He has rekindled my fire and reset my passion for more of Him.” “Pastor Tony has been a blessing to me. His prayers have brought healing & the Holy Spirit is working in me and come alive in me. Pastor Tony is just a real life pastor whom I have grown to love.” “I look forward to seeing you every month. God bless you!

Pastor Tony was preaching one Saturday night a couple of years ago and God used him to teach me something that has been so profound in my life (Jesus hears us when we pray). Pastor Tony shared his butterfly story with the congregation and I went home thinking Lord if you would care about the little things in Pastor Tonys life, you care about the little things in mine. I had never asked the Lord for something specific like this before so after I got home, I said "Lord, will you send me a red bird. I know you hear me when I pray because I am your child. Lord I see lots of birds around here but never red ones." The Lord did not send it that night but the next morning at 6AM I went out on my porch and I said "Lord, Let's finish our conversation from last night. Would you please send me a red bird? (There is a lot more details to this story but I don't have enough space, I pray that my words here will be enough for you.) Well, 3 hours later the Lord sent the red bird and I was so overwhelmed. You know I knew in my head that the Lord hears me when I call but after this experience I KNOW IN MY HEART he hears us. And when you really know that, Jesus becomes more real to you. I serve a God who is big. Pastor Tony said something like this "How big is your God? Well my God is big, he created the universe and he is also a God that cares about the little things in my life that doesn't mean a hill of beans to anyone else but means a whole lot to me." THAT FOLKS IS MY GOD TOO! He cares about the little things in your life. So talk to him he is listening!


Thank you!

We have been going to Soldiers of Light Miniseries for many years now. We have grown so much in our relationship with Jesus Christ, through the teachings of Pastor Tony. We would like to thank the Lord for the opportunity that we can be apart of such a powerful ministry, and to sit under a Pastor with such a powerful anointing. Pastor Tony's teachings have always lined up with the word of God. He has taught us to fight in the spirit and to break any strongholds of the enemy using the word of God. On Thursday August 25th, 2011 our daughter broke her right ankle, and the doctor put on a temporary cast ,waiting for the swelling to decrease. Saturday morning we had to re-wrap the temporary cast due to extreme swelling. We had an appointment for Monday the 29th to see an orthopedic doctor for a permanent cast. On Saturday night while at Soldiers of light church during praise and worship the power of Jesus came over our daughter and she began to take off the temporary cast, she began to dance in the spirit and jumping on the broken ankle saying " Jesus healed me!" no person laid hands on her it was the power of Jesus that healed her through the anointing of the praise and worship music. We took her to the orthopedic appointment on Monday and a x-ray had confirmed what Jesus had already told us. SHE IS HEALED. For those who don't believe you are welcome to go into the office of the church to see the x-ray of it broken and the x-ray of it healed. This is just one of the many miracles the Lord has done in our family through Soldiers Of Light. He is continuing to move in our home, business, and church because of the relationship we have with Jesus Christ. We are going to keep moving forward to the eternal prize that Jesus has set before us. (1 Corinthians 9:24-27) We will not look back . (Luke 9:62) We would like to thank Pastor Tony Balding for being the true example of what a Pastor and friend should be. Joe & Tracey Stevens



Thank you!

Testimony from an inmate.

 

This has been the second time I have attended your meeting.  Both times have been intense and have stuck to my spirit and continue to cling true in my heart.  My testimony though is this... in December I recieved a letter from a close friend of mine at another prison.  She didn't believe in God.  People have always made claims that she practiced on the dark side of life. The letter that she sent to me in december of 2012, she was different, noticably different.  She wrote about going to a service called Soldiers of Light. A church ministry that changed her life.  Her letters since then are postive and uplifting. She talks about reading and studying her bible and helping others.  It would be a disservice to God to not thank him for saving her and for not thanking you for being a vessel to reach her.  I can say with almost one hundred percent certainty that I probaly would have never attended your meetings if I would have never gotten that letter.  People all around me have been talking about you but it wasn't until August that I had to see for myself the power of God being demonstrated to people who are broken.  Several of my friends have allowed God to use your ministry to transform their lives.  Thank you.  Thank you for coming here and for sharing your faith with us. Thank you for being fearless for God and for encouraging others who walk with that same confidence in knowing God has our back.  

Testimony from an inmate:

 

I am the one that asked for prayer for my trial.  It was on September 23.  I took a plea for a year probation.  I said what you told me when I walked in for court.  I claimed in the Lord Jesus Christ for my victory and my freedom. God heard me.  I came out still okay from not having to do a 8 years at 100% sentence.  It was just showing me to stay out of trouble and stay walking a straight line with God.  I'm walking more now than I ever have to be closer to Jesus Christ.  Your church put it in my heart for me to do the right thing,  that's why when I leave at any time on any day,  I know I'm working towards being a better person.  I love Soldiers of Light because Jesus Christ work's through your church family to help me believe.  Before court I looked in the October armor up issue and started to read a little of  the article "Don't be afraid."

Testimony from an inmate:

 

The first time I attended your services you spoke over me a word from God.  Since that day, it has helped me.  I feel like God really cares and loves me.  Thank you for your word and for coming here.  I would like to know when your ministry comes here to the prison. I havnt been to church in a very long time.  The day I went something inside of me said "go to church today" and I did and I was blessed from attending.  I appreciate what you are doing.  I would like to remain in contact with your ministry and attend your services when you are here.  God bless you.

Testimony from an inmate: 

 

I will be leaving here at the end of Sept.  It has been a long road and I wish to thank you for the blessings you bring with your ministry.  God Bless you all. 

Testimony from an inmate:

 

I have been to some of your church services.  I can say you are very powerful in the Lord.  It is all God.  I am a changed woman now.  I am so ready to go home.  Thank you so much Pastor Tony.  May God bless you and your family.

Testimony from an inmate:

 

First I would like to say, thank you so much for taking time out to care for your brothers and sisters in prison. We are forever greatful to you and your congregation for coming to the prison to minister and pray for us. I am writing to give my praise report on the experiences I had after you prayed for me on 9/15/13. That Tuesday while doing bible study and reading about the grace of God, my body came under attack. I began to feel sick. I thought if I ate it would solve the problem. It only got worse. The room began to spin, my head was very, very light. I have never experienced this before. My heart began to race at the point I was really, really scared. I thought it was the "big one". Then I remembered what you said about how powerful the word is so I started quoting God's word. "Greater is he who is in me than he who is in the world, No weapon formed against me shall prosper, By Jesus' stripes I am healed." All of a sudden my body started agreeing. Now keep in mind, I was too weak to speak it phisically but I was willing in my mind to say these scriptures over and over. Thank you Jesus, I am healed from the attack of the enemy! To God be the glory!

((( "Pastor tony balding,Sir my name is C**** M******* and I'm here at the R.C.C.W.C and I've been coming here since 96' and all my times of coming here and 940 and in the prison I have never felt the presence of the Holy Spirit like I did tonight. I honestly can't put it on words what this time has done to me here at R.C.C.W.C. I have came to realize I was broken beyond "MANS" repair, doctors could not fix me because doctors can't fix spirits. I just want you to know sir that god sent you here to fix my spirit. It's been a long time since I've been at peace with myself. I can't begin to tell you how I feel sir but I would like to tell you that I love you and appreciate you for being obedient to your spirit and serving The Lord. I came back to my pod and was telling everyone what a great service it was and I look forward to you coming each and every month. "I wish it was everyday". ILove The Lord sir and I'm so grateful to have witness the Holy Spirits power in that room tonite. It was truly a blessing and I would just like to say thank you pastor tony thank you so much. Please keep me and the guys in here in your prayers. The Lord is working on this place. Thanks so much sir.Sincerely Your brother in Christ C**** M******* )))
