From Attendees at Events and Students
“Your message introduced me to the awesome power of prayer!... You have made me see prayer in a different way than I’ve seen before… Awesome – you’ve totally revitalized my faith in prayer… [As a result of your coming], we have prayer every morning at 7 Monday through Friday, and at 9:30 at night Sunday through Wednesday, plus Thursday and Friday meetings.”

"This was amazing! I have to admit that I was pretty skeptical. I would never dare to share before and assumed it was a bunch of deeply religious Jesus Freaks (that were) going to tell me how badly I was screwing up my life and how Jesus was the one to fix it. Surprisingly enough, I got out of the session and am pumped to start sharing the Gospel...I (am) planning to get hold of all my friends and share with them the Good News, the way of Jesus Christ and bring change to our community."
"I checked my life. I used to be a devil worshiper...In my room, I thought about the message at school (from New Fire) then I took the New Life track which I was given. I just found my eyes closed after reading God's way, tears started rolling down my cheeks. I found myself calling "Savior! Savior!"...I was surrounded and consumed by God's presence..."
"NFC (does) real good work in saving the lives of...students in (Matulo Girls High School). At one time they realized that some of the students have fallen into being agents of devil worshipping, but New Fire for Christ brought revival at the school and the power of darkness failed in the name of Jesus..."
-Emmanuel Wafula, teacher at Matulo Girls High School, Kenya
