God's Healing Power

Last Saturday, my wife and I had the privilege of attending the inaugural Release the Healers gathering in Auckland. Approximately four hundred people were in attendance. Looking around we realised that the lion’s share of attendees would have been well over fifty. A friend thought this might reflect that the younger generations haven’t really seen an outpouring of the Holy Spirit in their lifetimes, whereas many of us oldies have and are desperate for more.

Chris Gore’s messages were refreshingly simple, God-honouring, bible-based, and faith-building. He was totally confident that God would work wonders in this meeting. Scores of people testified to being miraculously healed. A longstanding friend of ours experienced two specific physical healings! This all happened in a church not more than 10 minutes away from Carey in the past week.

What happens inside you when you read these words? Could this be the beginning of a new move of God that will break through the prevailing cloud of disillusionment and reach the nation? Why not jump online and find out where the next Release the Healers gathering is going to be held?

Your Peer Writing Assistants

Did you know that Carey has a peer-based, academic-writing support programme? We have three new Peer Writing Assistants for 2022, who have volunteered their time to work with students to help them with academic writing and literacy. Thank you Jacqui, Grace, and Joy (left to right in photo) for helping offer this support.

To book a 25-50-minute session, contact the Library with the following details:

  • Your name and student ID number
  • Which assessment you are focussing on (course, assessment outline), and briefly identify what aspect of the assessment you would like help with.
  • Whether you want a 25-minute or 50-minute slot (in-person, via Zoom, or email).
