Ryan Hofman, 30, is an Australian-born civil engineer and a passionate follower of Jesus. He and his wife Hayley have a young daughter, and serve in leadership at Coastlands Church, Worthing. Ryan recently had a remarkable experience, which he shares here:
Earlier this year, I become desperately aware how the Church today is not seeing the glory of God that we read about in the Bible, so in my prayer times I began crying out to see that glory.
One morning in early March I woke at 6am, made a coffee, and went to the sitting room. I played music on my headphones then started worshipping – my usual routine. I felt an urge to kneel, which sometimes happens. So I knelt, and said “OK God, here I am.” I closed my eyes, and lay down flat. I felt as if I was preparing for something.

A retired legal secretary from Margate has told of her miraculous recovery from lung cancer.
Jenny Holder, 66, was diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer in 2013 and had a mastectomy. She thought it was all dealt with. But her battle with cancer was not over.
Jenny recalls: “My life gradually returned to normal after the mastectomy, but two years later I developed an irritating cough. I was unconcerned because I thought it was either pleurisy or pneumonia.”
Jenny remained unworried until she saw an advert about how a persistent cough should always be checked out with a GP. This prompted her to seek medical advice.
Knowing her history, Jenny’s doctor arranged for her to have a scan which, unfortunately, confirmed secondary cancer in the lining of her lungs. She was told it was treatable but it was not curable.
This lady tore four tendons off her right shoulder blade and 4cm of muscle under her arm 16 months earlier when picking up her grandchild. Keyhole surgery to reattach the tendons had been unsuccessful and she was 200th on a waiting list for further surgery although doctors had told her it was one of the hardest operations and success could not be guaranteed.
After John Mellor prayed for her in Jesus’s name, she was able to raise her arm and lift someone else’s baby.

A young man has been told that hepatitis C can no longer be found in his body.
The hospital staff were amazed that their tests showed that this very dangerous disease had mysteriously disappeared from his system.
More amazing is that while this type of hepatitis can appear to diminish through drugs, the young man had not been taking anything to treat it.

Gary Tan tells his dramatic story
My name is Gary and I am 42 years young. I grew up in a family of non believers, in fact love and morals were few and far between during my upbringing. I left home at 14 and was fending for myself from then on.
Trying to fill this hole I had within me, I got involved with all sorts of bad things: alcohol, drugs, girls, money and crime, all to no avail.
I ended up with a 14-year heroin and crack addiction, which I could not stop. Needless to say, I spent three years of that time in prison, and landed in hospital twice from overdosing.
