Room 24 at Bethel Church October 2019
September 30 to October 6, 2019 This past October, instead of our usual 24 hour prayer, we traveled to Bethel, Redding, CA. We took a group with us and drove ourselves first to LA and then on Highway 1 as far as we could go before turning toward Redding. The route was extraordinarily beautiful and captured the magnificence of our God! Some of us came by plane. We all gathered at the same hotel which became our new home together. We spent a week at Bethel Redding, first attending the Open Heaven’s Conference and then staying for the Saturday Healing Room and Sunday services. We did manage a little site seeing which took us to McArthur-Burney Falls for more extraordinary views. The conference was great. So many people and from 41 nations attended. It was at the Civic Center in Redding. Even standing on line to get in was an adventure. God ordained conversations were everywhere. We were all so touched by all of it; the worship, the speakers, the people. The culture at Bethel is unique in its peaceful atmosphere which stretches out way beyond the church campus to the area itself. Somehow, amongst all the movement of people and managing of their needs, nothing ever seemed out of order. The atmosphere was that of a small church, totally relaxed and welcoming. Our time together was rich. There was lots of fellowship time for our group. We even managed to have a Saturday evening service, like we do at home, in the hotel coffee room. We shared experiences and testimonies along with coffee. We each came away with a lifetime of memories and powerful spiritual encounters. We are so grateful for this trip.
