Celebrate Freedom with Us!

This summer, make plans to take a memorable family vacation in the beautiful Rocky Mountains and come to Andrew and Jamie’s Summer Family Bible Conference. You and your family will find this event to be a breath of fresh air as you unwind in peaceful surroundings and soak in the revelation of God’s love for you. Believers from all over the United States and many other nations—including Poland, Uganda, Norway, England, Australia, China, Belize, Ireland, and South Africa—look forward to this weeklong conference each year.

In addition to Andrew’s latest messages, the services will include teaching from Paul Milligan, David Barton, Wendell Parr, Greg Mohr, Barry Bennett, Daniel Amstutz, Carrie Pickett, Stephen Bransford, Lawson Perdue, and Mark Cowart. On top of that, vibrant praise and worship will uplift and encourage all who attend. You will be stirred up to embrace the hope of your calling.

Of course, the adults aren’t the only ones who will be blessed.

Each day, the children will gather for fun, fellowship, and dynamic worship and teaching that will meet them right where they are. At the Summer Family Bible Conference, your kids will not only be taught the Word of God but will also see firsthand God’s power in action. This year’s theme for the youth (ages 13-18) is “Identity in Christ.” Children (ages 5-12) will be led on an adventure designed to engage them in knowing Jesus as their ultimate superhero. By the end of the week, your kids will be walking in a deeper understanding of our great God and His goodness.

So, what are you waiting for? Make plans now to attend the Summer Family Bible Conference, July 4-8, 2016. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to gather and make connections with like-minded believers from all over the world.

A Moment of Clarity 

“I was just a Christian on cruise control, rolling along with whatever came my way. I loved God and knew He loved me, but I thought I was here to just work on myself, always trying to live up to His expectations.”

Ever since she was a little girl, Melanie Davis struggled with severe allergies to all sorts of things—dust, weeds, dog dander…you name it! Even with a daily routine of capsules, Melanie found it difficult just to breathe and sleep. “I kept everyone awake at night,” recalls Melanie, “and that June [2007], it was particularly bad. The whites of my eyes were swollen, so much so that they covered part of my pupils. I spent my days in a fog because of how bad the allergies were, and it didn’t seem like things would ever change.”

Sitting in the back of the room with her tissue box in hand, Melanie spent the first night of the 2007 Summer Family Bible Conference trying not to fall asleep. Miserable and full of antihistamine, she listened as Andrew began telling a story about a very young girl who was laying her hands on people and seeing them healed.

“Andrew then said that someone there was struggling with breathing and seasonal-type things, giving them trouble sleeping. He asked them to stand up. At that moment, it felt like there were arms under mine, lifting me up to my feet. There I stood, along with a few others around the room, when Andrew yelled, ‘Well, there’s Melanie Davis! Good to see you!’ I know I turned every shade of red there was.”

Andrew then directed those nearby to lay hands on those who were standing. With her eyes closed, Melanie could feel the warmth as hands were laid on her shoulders, surrounding her in prayer.

“I don’t remember what Andrew said or did,” remarks Melanie, “but at the end of the prayer, my eyes popped wide open. I could clearly see everything around me. My eyes didn’t itch at all, and I could feel the swelling leave. I was stunned and started crying. Then I looked to my left, and there was that young girl Andrew was telling us about. She had prayed for me! I was healed, head to toe, as quickly as the snap of my fingers.

“I knew that night that God was real. I figured He probably was before, but now I knew He was alive and that I was healed! Don’t be discouraged. You don’t need to work for it; it’s already there, just waiting for you to believe it. I may not have all the answers, but I do know that God wants us to be like 3 John 2—in good health.”

Melanie knew her healing had stuck like glue when she went on a bike ride in the same area where she had struggled to breathe before, and had no problems of any kind—except maybe keeping up with her kids! She can walk through a pasture, rub her face in a bed of weeds, mow, camp, fish, and cuddle with a dog without one single sniffle or sneeze. In the past eight years, she has not sneezed, and her eyes have not swelled.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Philippians 4:13, New King James Version

Finding the Answer

Cassaundra Siegersma“I grew up in a religious home, and sickness was just punishment for doing something wrong. I remember telling my dad about my back problems, and his response was, ‘What did you do to cause it?’”

Cassaundra Siegersma had been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease, sleep apnea, asthma, and fibromyalgia and had two herniated disks resulting in two back surgeries. She would sleep all day and stay up all night while her husband worked three jobs to pay the bills. Still, they were on the brink of bankruptcy.

Searching for a change, Cassaundra decided to tag along with one of her relatives to AWM’s annual Summer Family Bible Conference in Colorado. “I remember sitting under Andrew’s teaching,” recalls Cassaundra, “and he started quoting verses from the Bible concerning healing. Anytime I would have the thought of his teaching being false, I would be reminded of Romans 3:4, ‘Let God be true, but every man a liar.’ I realized that Andrew was quoting the Word. And God is true; therefore, His word is true.”

After receiving prayer for her healing at the conference, Cassaundra went back to her hotel room and threw her medication away, deciding that she was going to take a stand on her healing. Two weeks later, she received a touch from God that she would never forget.

“One morning as I was trying to sleep, I felt someone touch my toe. I thought my husband wanted me to take him to work. So, I opened my eyes, but no one was there. Within five minutes, I was asleep and slept better than I had in years.

“I can honestly say that I have been healed of everything. Not only did God heal me physically, but He was also able to heal my broken heart. God healed all of the hurt, anger, and condemnation in my life and replaced it with His peace.”

Cassaundra’s family is closer, stronger, and more loving than ever before. She has experienced her Healer and, as a result, will never be the same. “Healing is like any gift,” remarks Cassaundra. “If God paid for it in order to give it to you, then He wants you to have it!

“I think one of the greatest realizations I have come to understand is that healing is about the solution, not the problem. The cross is the answer, and it does not matter what problem you are facing. God can change your mind, your circumstances, and even that giant in your life. What Christ did on the cross is so much bigger than any sin or circumstance in your life.

“Let God be your refuge, your fortress, your deliverer, and a very present help in time of need. He will meet you wherever you are with outstretched hands and a loving heart. Go hear the Word, hear the truth, and expect to see a good God show up in powerful ways in your life!”
