One Wednesday night in early March for an Aspire Meeting, Celene came, for the first time. To be honest she looked like death! She said she was ‘afraid to die alone’ and her sister (A Baptist Pastor in Brazil) said for her to go to church, even if there are only one or two there! Well at first it was just myself (Pastor Jocelyn) and as I prayed “Dear God please have Debra come.” LOL, I no sooner got the words out when in she walks! We prayed for Celene and declared, “You will live and not die in Jesus Name!” We have been soaking her in prayer and her health and wellbeing has greatly improved. Celene was recently baptized with Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues and baptized in water in her native country Brazil. Seen in the picture are Celene and husband Kevin who also has been greatly impacted by the love of God.
Dawn Saulnier's Story:
Dawn first came to LCC during the Spring Conference with Rev Jerry Fitch. I went home from the Saturday morning meeting stoked because of the healings and presence of God! One lady who was suffering terribly because of a car accident, came shuffling in, on verge of tears because of the pain, well she left running and doing toe touches! I spoke with Dawn who was complaining of chronic back pain and when I told her this story, and invited her to come she shouted “I’m going to church tonight to get healed!” and that is exactly what happened! She too left pain free and surrendered her life to Christ! Dawn has followed up on her commitment and was Baptized in July and has been coming to LCC ever since. Dawn is a work in progress as we all are, working hard at recovery and wholeness. You go girl!
2011 is escalation in healings and wonderful encounters with the goodness of God! It's wonderful! We resumed our regular Lunch & Pray January 4th and after we brought the needs and cares of others and placed them, so to speak, at the Father's feet, He began to touch those in attendance.
First of all a request for prayer for 'pressure around the ear and down the throat' after a few moments of prayer and His Presence, the pressure began to subside! We continued and to God be the glory, much relief gained and recipient could feel it draining! Isn't God good! So, next we prayed for one who was really feeling the weight of life's circumstances and encouraged the Holy Spirit to 'bubble up from the well within' and the burdens lifted right there! Glory to God! That day another one came in with persistant back pain and hobbled around about, when during prayer time God simply whispered "I'm going to heal you" and He did just that! All pain gone and hasn't returned! That was Tuesday.
Wednesday night's we started Healing School and the recipient could bearly move, used a cain, and in much pain. At the end of the evening we layed hands and prayed to which all pain left the body and the reciepiant walked unhindered! Wonderful isn't it?
Sunday January 9th after the service during ministry time one gentleman felt all the pain leave his hips and was feeling pain free for the rest of the day and had a much improved week! Another lady whose hands were swollen in constant pain later notice all the swelling in but one finger on each hand gone! She also had a much better week feeling better than in a long time!
Sunday January 16th a lady came in with dificulty breathing even puffers were not as effective during the service she said to "God please just show me you are real" He answered and her lungs completely cleared!
I Yvonne Swinamer was diagnosed with Temporal Arteritis on January 4,2010. This is an auto-immune disease affecting the arteries mainly in the head. Sharp stabbing pain in the ear and the eye; right side only. Treatment is large doses of prednisonne (50mg) for the first 20 days; retesting after 15 days. Treatment can last up to 2 to 3 years. On day 15 I went for retesting. On January 22 I returned to my Doctor for the results. I was told I no longer had the disease and could start the weaning off of the prednisonne right away. This takes 30 days. This is God answered prayer. To Him all the Praise ,Honor , and Glory. Amen .
Yet again the Lord our Healer answers! Recently Yvonne spent some time in emergency the Dr was 95% sure she had "Bird Fanciers Lung Disease" and sent her home with the grim news that if this is the case she may only have 2-3yrs to live! Well, that just won't do! So as a church family we gather round, laid hands on her and prayed. Yvonne could hardly walk, and breathe at that time. She had her tests results came back no disease! Prior to that, Sunday June 13 we prayed again and that Monday morning Yvonne felt better than she has felt in years like she was a 35yr old! She was now able to do all she couldn't do previously! Glory to God!
Testimonies of Debra, Bernadette and Tom

Happy 65th Bernadette!
We were watching a DVD by Randy Clark “Pressing In” on the laying on of hands and impartation of God's gifts of the Spirit.
After the DVD had finished Pastor Jocelyn had us stand in a circle while she prayed over us.
While she was praying... my hands and fingers began to pain really bad. I told her and she stopped and asked if anyone had arthritis in their hands or pain in their hands.
Bernadette said that she did and her hands were really paining. In fact all her joints were paining.
I laid my hands on her and started praying and she said the swelling in her fingers began to go down and the pain went away. All the pain left my hands! That was a ‘word of knowledge’ in form of sympathy pain. She asked that I pray for the rest of her.
I prayed for her back and then felt led to lay hands on her knees. She buckled and went down and as the others were praying around her they helped to lower her down gently. We continued to pray over her especially for her back and she said she felt a deep heat penetrating her body and her knees.
She said the swelling was going down in her knees and her back felt better and when she finally got up she said she felt so good all over! What a wonderful Birthday gift from the Lord!! Happy Birthday Bernadette!!
