In Toronto, Canada, Ted and Carol Ward are using CHM's training videos and the course has become a wonderful means for a larger healing: the coming together of all Christians.

In the first place Ted and Carol are Anglicans and they are holding the course in a Baptist Church in the center of Toronto, with the full support of the pastor. The chaplain of the course is an Anglican priest, and the 78 participants in Levels I and II comprise 14 Baptists, 26 Catholics, 16 Anglicans, 2 Eastern Orthodox Catholics, 8 Presbyterians and the rest include Pentecostals, Evangelicals, United Church, Lutherans and one Seventh Day Adventist. What a wonderful cross section of the body of Christ!

The Power to Heal

The Power to Heal has just been translated into, yet, another language — Dutch. It is published by Ekklesia.


In our last issue we listed Dr. Morris Vaagenes, as pastor of North Heights Lutheran Church. He is now the Pastor Emeritus. The new Senior Pastor is Robert Cottingham. North Heights Lutheran Church,2701 North Rice St., St. Paul, MN 55113.

A Personal Word

So much has been happening: travel (as usual), growing developments at CHM, and increasing numbers of letters and phone calls. In addition, I have four books in mind to write. (I have already started on one, The Nearly Perfect Crime: How Christians Almost Destroyed their own Healing Ministry.) Because of all this I just haven't managed to keep up with all my correspondence.

Our friends on CHM's National Advisory Board have advised me that I need to prioritize and cut down on correspondence and phone calls — and try to tum them, when possible, over to others to answer.

So, if you have written and not gotten an immediate answer, this shear impossibility of keeping up is the reason. But be assured, if you write asking for prayer I will try to pray for you, and then turn the request, when appropriate, over to our intercessors.

I'm sure you understand the wisdom of trying to concentrate my time and energies.
