► The presence of the Lord is here. The Lord told me to take off my shoes — I am on Holy ground. ► Excerpts From a New Student's Letter: Even though I sensed the world was so dark and I wanted to make a difference, I didn’t realize how quickly my submission to weekly activations would lead to more and more diverse experiences of the Holy Spirit working through me. I started to see with my spiritual eyes rather than my physical ones. Each and every week increased my sensitivity to the Holy Spirit’s direction and I found myself being prompted by the Holy Spirit at home, at church and even on the street. This had never happened to me so often before. I knew something was different. I was growing. I was growing more dependent on the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit was giving me more opportunities to encourage, build up and comfort others. The world didn’t look so dark but rather more in need of comfort, edification and exhortation. If teacher Jon Winters’ weekly activation challenges weren’t enough, she or Pastor Tom spoke about us seeing more miracles. More miracles didn’t register with me at first either. Then I started hearing about them, I started witnessing them and then I started being a part of them, then I knew the Bible was real and the miracles in the Bible was not just for the past but for today and tomorrow as well. Now I am confident, if I continue to be submissive to the Holy Spirit, God will continue to reveal his love through me to help brighten this world I currently live in. I thank my fellow students for helping me with my weekly activations. I thank my wonderful teacher, Jon Winters I thank Pastor Tom and his wife, Phyllis, for their love and open arms in accepting me as new student. I strongly encourage anyone interested in learning more about what God can do through them to attend the School of the Holy Spirit I’m not finished learning; are you? ► E-mail: I cannot tell you how valuable the prophetic word I received last year on my birthday in December from your prophetic team has meant to me. This past year, I have sought God like never before and watched as their prophetic word has unfolded and taught me in many ways. You and your ministry have been such a gift to me! This past year has not been an easy one but God has been faithful and I look forward to His leading and what He desires to do with my life in the future. ► I was listening to the prophetic words spoken over me, and I am just utterly amazed by what was spoken! Some words were confirmations, some were answers to questions, some words were encouragement. I am looking forward to learning more about our God in your school. I almost feel reborn because of the lifting of the veil from over my eyes! I can't wait to see what God is doing! In the matchless name of Jesus, thank you for your ministry! ► I just want to thank you guys. You are appreciated. ► Very edifying. I will be back. ► I felt God's presence in the Praise & Worship. The prophetic team spoke pure prophetic words confirming many things I have heard from Jesus. Generally the meeting helped me to feel welcomed, when so many others cannot understand my oldness for Jesus. ►Well done thou good and faithful servants of the Lord. ► The prophecy was inspiring and it confirmed my current state and the plans I believe God has in store for me. I thoroughly enjoyed the Service as I was blessed as a result of being there. ► The Praise & Worship and Teaching were excellent. The Prophetic Ministry was very accurate. It was a blessing to be in the House of the Lord. All of you are blessings from God. And I see this House being a large House. Numbers are too large for me to see. Be blessed and thank you all. ► Via email: Hi Pastor Tom, The ministry I was led to join is in partnership with CI and we go up and down the East Coast teaching Ministering Spiritual Gifts and I serve on the prophetic team. Thank you and the School of The Holy Spirit for giving me the confidence to walk in the prophetic. We went on a mission trip to Nicaragua for a week in early June- we taught Module I to 75 pastors. Many of them got filled with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. Again, thank you for the blessings you've been in my life. Tell everyone I said hello and give Pastor Phyllis a kiss for me. ► The teaching was excellent. Word for word to the book. The prophetic ministry team was very accurate — the best part of the evening. I was amazed. God has led me here. I need to be here for His purpose. ► I love the music.
