Supernatural Encounter With Christ

Jesus met him in his grief.

One freshman boy from Tulelake had a supernatural encounter one night with Jesus. He was struggling with deep sadness and grief over the loss of his brother. He cried out to God the day before to reveal Himself to him in a way he could understand. God answered his prayer the next night and he responded by placing his faith in Jesus.

Delivered from Darkness

I'm hearing evil voices

One young woman wanted to be delivered from demonic voices in her head. She'd been hearing those voices after exposing herself to witchcraft. She asked for prayer from adult leaders. After a powerful time of prayer for deliverance in Jesus' name, she said the voices were gone. Her complexion changed and she said she had never felt so free and at peace. On the last night of the retreat, she wanted to get baptized too.

Reading the Bible

Some for the first time

Many students began reading the Bible for themselves for the first time.
