"Through LIS I’m getting closer to God by sharing every moment of my life with Him. We can be at peace and find joy at any moment with Holy Spirit."

"At 17, I went to LIS with deep wounds of shame and repressed abandonment as a child. I never thought that God could love someone like me. What I experienced at LIS was an encounter with the Holy Spirit as the warm, sincere love of God the Father. I cried for 2 days straight not knowing what to do with all this love, but looking back now, I know now that was the start of God melting away the emotional and spiritual "garbage" of my heart. Through intercessory prayer, the Lord kept repeating the words, "I will never leave you." Today, that encounter has led me to a relationship with Jesus that continues to carry me and free me to be who Jesus always intended me to be today- loved and known as his precious child."

"I first attended my first LIS at the age of 20. At the time, I didn’t really have an authentic relationship with God outside of Sunday Mass as I simply grew up being comfortable with moving through the motions of what it meant to be Catholic. During the laying of the hands at my first LIS experience, I was enveloped by what I can only describe as a whirlwind of fire — that is, the Holy Spirit making the loving power and presence of God the Father more fully known to my heart. Although I couldn’t exactly understand what this vision meant at the time, years later (with continued prayer & reflection) I had come to realize that the Lord had laid down the foundation for a growing relationship in which I can look to Him as a true friend and father figure in times of need. To this day, I remain ever grateful for that burning encounter with the Holy Spirit that ignited my relationship with the Father."
