June 2014 Newsletter

Dear Friends,

What a blessed first few months we’ve had! Leroy and Jeanne started the year out with a trip to Washington, D.C. to work with YWAM leaders, and followed with a trip to Pasadena, CA, to train leaders at the Ekballo House of Prayer.

It was a privilege to see how students on both coasts had a hunger for freedom and wholeness. What an exciting time to work with emerging leaders to see them healed and set free as they cover the globe in missions and prayer!

Blessings!
Leroy & Jeanne

Attention Intercessors!

We are in a battle, and the battle is for the heart. Every day in the office brings both new challenges and VICTORIES. We would love to have your prayer support to continue to pursue freedom in hearts and marriages. Here are some key areas:
  • Willing hearts that will do whatever it takes for freedom
  • Wisdom for Jeanne and Leroy
  • Refreshment and strength

Thank you for your faithful prayer support!

Testimony: Transformed Marriage!

When a friend told me to look at Transforming Hearts’ website, I was hanging on by my last fingernail. I watched the video clips on their homepage and something hopeful stirred in my heart. I contacted them by phone, and to my surprise, Jeanne answered the phone. I explained that my husband and I had gone through months of counseling and we were desperate for a break-through in our marriage. I was impressed by Jeanne’s insightfulness during our conversation. She spoke truth into me, prayed for me on the phone, and we selected a date to come to Redding.

My husband and I have attended many marriage retreats, conferences and seminars, but never before found a successful way to get off of the “crazy cycle” in which we were living. The assignment to watch the DVD’s and complete our workbook started the process for each of us to “come clean” with the transparency needed for God to heal our Christian marriage. I knew my husband was struggling with guilt and shame, which in turn was causing me great pain. I couldn’t imagine how Leroy was going to tackle the challenge of getting to the ugly roots that had so badly tangled us up. I called Leroy to clarify the assignment, and I knew in that short phone call that this was someone qualified to handle our strong personalities.

We have been prayed over by dear Christian friends many times.  Never before had we gone to battle in prayer by anyone who knew our secret sins and wounded hearts so completely. Learning to truly repent in prayer (not just offer apologies to our spouse) along with praying to cast off bitterness and bind the enemy forces that seek to destroy our marriage has brought the freedom and peace we desperately needed. During our time in prayer, God revealed to me past hurts that I wasn’t even aware I had been carrying, apart from issues with my husband. On my own I was trying so hard in my strength to overcome strongholds that kept me nervous and anxious. In this first week since we returned home from Redding, I have experienced a sense of calm and joy I have not known before.

Our hearts are being transformed daily by the love of Jesus, and we are so grateful that God has chosen to use Leroy and Jeanne in this life-changing ministry for others. Every committed Christian couple that we know could benefit by this intensive counseling time spent together.

The Bible passage Isaiah 61:1-4 is what Jesus is doing through the Dillons:

“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on (Leroy and Jeanne), because the
Lord has anointed them to preach good news to the poor. He has sent
them to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners… to comfort all who mourn…
to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness
instead of mourning and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of
despair. They (those being counseled) will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor. They will rebuild
the ancient ruins (marriages) and restore the places long devastated; they
will renew (by God’s love and power) the ruined cities that have been
devastated for generations.”

Thanking God for you both.
