Restoring Lives International (RLI) Story

May 2003 changed our lives forever. We found answers to healing and health that we never knew existed! Our daughter Kari came home from college very ill with fibromyalgia and other physical and emotional problems. For 30 years, Bryn was plagued with her own health issues – battling sickness, disease, and emotional torment. Bryn and Kari were spending many hours with doctors, counselors and other health care professionals with no relief in sight. We were desperate for answers, confused, and wondering why our prayers for healing were not answered.

Through amazing circumstances the Lord led us to a church in Georgia* whose ministry is dedicated to unraveling the spiritual roots of disease. Thus began our miraculous God journey to health, healing and wholeness!

After an intense week of teaching and ministry, the pain, torment, sickness, and fear were gone! Bryn and Kari were both healed. Needless to say, our family was overcome with thankfulness and excitement! We had to share the wonderful news with others. We couldn’t keep our mouths shut about the amazing work of God in our lives!

Over the next nine months we attended several more seminars in order to gain more knowledge and ministry experience. Soon people started asking us to teach and minister and we began seeing God heal and restore their lives. In May 2004, we held our first teaching conference with 55 in attendance. People came excited and hungry to learn and receive God’s best. Many were touched and healed!

Following that first conference, 12 people (who had been dramatically touched) wanted to help in the ministry. This was the beginning of our Volunteer Team. Soon we had a growing volunteer team of other healed individuals and we started holding conferences throughout the Cincinnati area and in Indiana.

Over the last 12 years we have seen God touch, heal and restore many hundreds of people through the Restoring Lives International (RLI) conferences, teaching, training and ministry. It is very exciting and humbling to be a part of a ministry whose teachings are bringing hope and freedom back into people’s lives!  We love being a part of God’s work renewing minds, restoring bodies and reviving spirits!
