JANUARY 29, - FEBRUARY 8, 2012 - HOLY CHURCH OF GOD- SAVANNAH, GEORGIA- PASTOR RYAN RALSTON
We have known and appreciated Pastor Ryan Ralston for quite some time, and count it a blessed privilege to be invited to minister in this great church. We earnestly sought God for His direction and anointing in this revival, and were not disappointed. His mighty power was manifested night after night of the meetings.
From the first service there was an expectancy in the hearts of the congregation. The pastor had encouraged them to pray and fast for the revival. They were ready for a spiritual breakthrough. By Tuesday night there was no holding back the burst of hunger and spiritual desire. Before the preaching even began, crowds thronged to the altars seeking the Lord. It was fresh winds of Pentecost all over again.
Crowds were making their way in to the sanctuary for the Wednesday night service and as music started a lady came down the aisle wanting to get saved. What a great beginning of a service! Folks had visited her on Saturday and she came this night determined to make things right with God. Praise God for the washing and cleansing of the precious blood of Jesus.
It was thrilling to experience the Holy Ghost so powerfully anointing the preaching of the Word. His presence was like electricity pulling people away from distractions and centering them on Jesus. Hundreds of people filled the pews and responded like Pentecostals should.
The Holy Ghost reached deeply into hearts of individuals and families drawing them to the altars where there was long, earnest praying, accompanied by wonderful altar workers encouraging the seekers. What a mighty outpouring of His presence was experienced. It was common for people to be praying around the altar, in the aisles, and in the pews ,for over an hour and a half or two.
God was working! It seemed like the heavens were opened upon us as the Spirit of God came and filled several, including three young ladies, refilled many, and moved in many who came so close to receiving the Holy Ghost.
We witnessed the convicting work of the Spirit as He drew four to Salvation in the services. Each one testified that the Lord had saved them and you can guess how much rejoicing there was over all that the Lord has been doing.
It became obvious that this has been a sovereign move of God. It will not soon be forgotten. There is no doubt that the results of what the Holy Ghost accomplished in these days will continue to effect the ministry at Holy Church of God in Savannah!
We were blessed each night by the anointed singing of the choirs, other singing groups, and great Pentecostal music.
We now have no doubt about Southern hospitality! From the moment we arrived we were continually cared for. Everywhere we turned someone was asking us, "Is there anything you need? We'll be glad to get it for you."
We enjoyed seeing many friends from Bible School days, Robin Holcombe, Christina Morales, Shane and Alyssa Middleton, Brian Stanley, Lori (Hicks), Davina (Adams) Cone, Josh Decker and others. We fell in love with the wonderful people here at Savannah, and especially the beautiful children.
My God bless Pastor Ryan, his wife Beth, and their children Grant, Landon, and Brooklyn. They are a wonderful blessing to Holy Church of God in Savannah, and to the kingdom of God across the country.
