This captivating account of the spiritually unexpected unfolding on a Welsh hillside will challenge and encourage you. In keeping with God’s pattern of using marginal people from obscure places - fishermen, tax collectors, children, women and Galileans - this story sees God intrude into the mundane rhythms of life in a Christian retreat centre, run by a couple who would have been forgiven for opting for a quiet life when they arrived in this quiet Welsh hamlet.
God’s intrusion has not only sparked the growth of a House of Prayer but also touched many lives with healing, repentance and encouragement.
The tangible presence of God has released visions of Jesus, angelic messengers and a steady stream of non-believers seeking to understand the encounter with God that they experience as they venture near this converted farmhouse.
The multiple miracles will provoke the reader to wonder and worship but the book also imparts a fresh understanding of how the church might bless a community through prayer as a prelude to the breaking in of the Kingdom of God into every area of local life. A fresh perspective on evangelism emerges from this inspiring insight into how God might work in your community.
"I appreciate the privilege of having been associated with the Ffald-y-Brenin Trust in its early days. I hear from many people how the Trust is fulfilling the original vision and being a place for real spiritual refreshment." Baroness Cox
"I, like many others, have been blessed to experience the presence of God at Ffald-y-Brenin. When bringing teams that way, people have been visibly shaken by the depth of their experience of God there. It’s one of those special places, where you think you are just going for a rest or to pray and when you get there, God does something much more than you ever expected. The location is beautiful, the hospitality outstanding and His presence exceptional. Long may Ffald-y-Brenin continue to serve the Kingdom." Carl Brettle, An Open Door
"Ffald-y-Brenin provides a unique and much-appreciated oasis of calm for all who visit. The personal accounts of how guests have encountered the Lord in a fresh and powerful manner continue to circulate and are a cause to thank God for the provision of such a retreat centre." Elfed Godding, General Secretary, Evangelical Alliance Wales.
