Journey to the Heart "New Zealand"
During the trip, we spoke with several families who said they had been waiting for eight years for the Journey to the Heart to come to New Zealand! Praise the Lord for His goodness and mercy throughout the entire trip. The following is the testimony of a young lady who attended the New Zealand Journey:
“All my Christian life I have loved God's Word, but lacked belief and faith in knowing that God is who He says He is.… I don't have to work to earn Christ's favour, I am as saved as much as I can ever be. I came to the Journey, not knowing what to expect, I believed it would be good for me somehow....”“For the first time, in all my Christian life, seeking God here at Journey and hearing amazing teaching, God has shown me the lies I have believed…. My walk with Christ is not based around what I do for Him, or how happy I can make Him…. Yet I was believing that every time I sinned, He would be angry and not speak to me. When I didn't get anything from my quiet time I believed He was disappointed in me. That is a lie! The truth is that when I sin, He loves me because He sees His Son within me and His Son has cleansed me from all unrighteousness. He supports me when I am in despair over my sin. He points me to Himself, asking me to come closer, not to leave His presence because of my wrongs. It sounds simple, but His love has changed my thinking, my whole belief system. I am free, and free forever. This simple truth has set my heart free, and it is beautiful….”
