COMMENTS FROM THE CLERGY
We were truly blessed by your ministry. Your ministry
of prayer and worship, entering into Gods presence is
much needed throughout every church in America. This teaching
is not new but seems to have been almost forgotten. I
would recommend that any church invite you to come and
minister. In particular, I am forwarding this letter to
my good friends Pastor Wallace and Marilyn Hickey, Pastor
Benny Hinn and Bishop Earl Paulk. Continue to be used
- PASTOR BILL SWAD, THE CHRISTEN CENTER, COLUMBUS OHIO
I was expecting a Hollywood Celebrity to give a
Testimony. To our delight Leon truly Ministered
to our people. Your Ministry demonstrates a deep compassion
for the people... You truly blessed us. PASTOR TOMMY
REID, FULL GOSPEL TABERNACLE ORCHARD PARK, N.Y.
God has given Leon Isaac Kennedy a crash course
in Ministry. He Ministers with a level of maturity that
usually takes decades. BISHOP CHARLES BLAKE, WEST
ANGELES CHURCH OF GOD IN CHRIST. LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
I just met Leon at O.R.U.s charismatic Bible
Conference. I felt God urged me to open our doors to him.
The moment he uttered his first words... I knew I had
heard God! Looking forward to bringing you back!
PASTOR CHARLES GREEN, WORD OF FAITH CHURCH, NEW ORLEANS,
I met Leon and sensed a strong presence of God on
His Life. I invited him to my church. After the first
service I said ...dont feel restricted - youre
at home here. That night Leon ministered as he was
led - we had so many delivered from the bondage of drug
and alcohol addictions, abuse, depression and oppression
- they were too numerous to count. Documented healings
of cancer, deafness - and a variety of other healings.
Each day the meetings grew to packed out attendance. Then
a special surprise - Muhammad Ali, whos lived in
this area for 10 years but has never attended a Christian
Church (He is Muslim) heard his friend Leon was ministering
and came to our church! Additionally 1/3 of the people
that attended these services had never come to our church!
I think many came out of curiosity, others because theyve
seen him in the movies, or on T.B.N. or other Christian
outlets. What brought them in is insignificant - for they
were hit with the anointed word of God! Many of these
first timers have continued to worship at our church
- BISHOP N. WELLS, MUSKEGON, MICHIGAN
This brother is highly anointed, and sensitive to
God. Its apparent he spends much time in prayer.
- EVANGELIST JEFF FENHOLT, REGULARLY SEEN ON T.B.N.
Based on a referral from Bill Owens at O.R.U., Dr. Richard
Henton of Chicagos Monument of Faith asked Leon
to minister for a Sunday service. The Lord moved so in
that one service, that Pastor Henton brought Leon back
for an additional six days.
Having been a Pastor, I understand the deep concern
when allowing one to share the pulpit. I can testify that
Leon has not gone out to just give a personal testimony.
He has sat and been steeped in the Word. Out
of his great hunger to learn and grow, Leon has personally
flown to just sit under many of my meetings as well as
gleaning from many others. His hard work, research and
tedious study in the Azusa and Seymour documentary resulted
in not only critically acclaimed, but anointed work. He
has been a personal friend for over two years and I can
attest to his integrity and a genuine heart for the Lord,
the people and the ministry. Leon has now reached a point,
wherein its not a Celebrity Name but
His gift shall make room for Him. - TIM STOREY,
TIM STOREY MINISTRIES, WHITTIER, CALIFORNIA
