It's so great when men start praying with their wives. Just listen to these testimonies from wives in a recent summit.

"This week has been amazing, exhausting, but most importantly, it has been convicting. God has revealed truths to me that I didn't want to hear. I hope and pray that my family will NEVER be the same again. It hasn't stopped with me - my husband cancelled a business trip to attend this revival (that's nothing short of a miracle). He also sat on the side of our bed and prayed with me for the first time in our 14 year marriage!! My two young daughters have also been touched this week. I praise God for working in each of our lives individually and also as a family. I'm excited about where we are going and I'm praying for open hearts and obedient spirits. Thank you for coming - for giving of yourselves."

"On Thursday, my husband received a call to do some work with the State Attorney's office (he is a retired attorney). He has not had a call in the 4 years he has been retired. He will take this job at current attorney fees - and it speaks to his integrity for his past work - also his character. My husband and I took hands and prayed about this before he gave his answer - something we had never done before the revival!!!"

"It has been a true blessing from God to have you all with us here in Farmington. Personally, I have been challenged to be H.O.T. (honest, open, and transparent). The messages confirmed my desires to be obedient to God in ways He will surely reveal. Also, a miracle occured when my husband of 34 years took my hand on Tuesday night before we went to sleep and said, "Let's pray together." We hadn't done that for 30+ years!!! There in the dark, I had the biggest smile on my face as he began to pray. Praise God and may He bless you all in your work."

"This week has been great to help direct me in my marriage. We have been married 27 years and the last several years have been a struggle. Threats of leaving and divorce have been a common convesation at our home. In the past 6 months, we have really been trying to listen to what we know God's plan is for our lives. This week's lessons on marriage have helped me open my heart more to listen rather than talk. It has helped my husband express himself better. I will continue to seek God's will and please pray for us!!"

Testimony from a recent summit -

"This week, I was broken, lost, tempted by the world, ready to give up on my marriage. I have been tempted to be unfaithful to my husband. He has been very sick with several mental, stress disorders. I felt defeated. Every message this week seemed to be directed to me and opened my eyes to the person I had become. Godless, hopeless, unfaithful, bitter, and unhappy. This revival opened my heart up to hear God's Word and to change my heart. God has shown me how to be a godly wife and mother and He reminded me of the grace God wants to give me. My heart had hardened so much and I didn't even realize it. I have been talking with my husband and my daughter has used the Life Action worksheets from Base Camp to bring the Word to my husband. Praise God!!"
