THE FULL STORY

The Lives Impacted

The most important part of Jesus Woodstock are the lives that are changes through the encounter of the Spirit. God is the only one who can change us immediately. He is the only one who can rescue us from the bondage of the enemy.

“July 26th would be the first day of my sobriety. The Lord took my desire for alcohol away in one day after struggling with alcoholism since I was 14 years old. I could never understand how in one day, the desire was just gone. Unbeknownst to me, a group of men and women, who I would meet 3months later, were obediently praying for me. In Sept of 2021, I found myself at a music festival - Jesus Woodstock. One of our contractors working on a building renovation for me told us about it and so we decided to go. Near the end of the evening, the woman who spearheaded the event, Stephanie, was giving her unbelievable testimony. I resonated with her life story and at the conclusion she stated that there was someone who needed to come up front to the stage because the Lord was calling them. I knew that it was me. God had begun my healing and now He was giving me a specific purpose. I ran up to the base of that stage, pointed at myself, and said, “It’s me, it’s me!” Stephanie ran down to meet me, prayed over me, and said, “Next year, you’ll be up here. I shared my story with Stephanie later, and explained that I could never understand how, through all my wrestling with God, I could not kick my addiction, nor reach Him for years and yet, in one day, He took it all. She then shared with me that for an entire year, she and her Jesus Woodstock team would go to these grounds where the event took place and pray over the land, and for the people who would come that night. So, a group of people that I had never met, prayed for me for an entire year and those prayers, along with the prayers of my husband, family, and small band of brothers and sisters in Christ were heard by the Lord and He delivered me from my addiction.”

A young man came with his family to Jesus Woodstock against his wishes. He said he "hated Jesus" because of things he had to endure in this life. By the end of the night, this young man was baptized and worshiping in the field. On the buses headed back to the parking lot, he said "this is the best day of my life and I will love Jesus forever!"
