My name is Marcela, I am a mom of four beautiful girls and a foster parent of two amazing boys. I am a christian since I was 16 and Ive been serving the Lord together with my husband in different ministries. I had a very rough childhood and that affected my future a lot, I was very sick for a long period of time. My daugther met Bob and Joan at the Salem church Oradea and she insisted on meeting them. We had two meetings together and it was such a blessing! At the first meeting they ministered me with presenting the truth and helping me remember and connect all the things that hurt me so much in my childhood. As an effect of all the childhood trauma I used to have pain in all my body, wake up during the night time at the same hour feeling that someone is trying to kill me, and having no clear diagnostic from any doctor. After my first session with Bob and Joan I was delivered and a lot of physical pain went away, and also the waking up at the same hour in the night stoped. But after that meeting for the fallowing nights I started remembering more traumatizing experiences from my childhood and I constantly had a migraine. Meeting Bob and Joan for the second time, they ministered me and I was delivered! This ministry is so important, because most christians even if they serve the Lord all their lives they have things going on in their lives they cannot control, things that they were victim of or they inherited. I hope that you will come back to Romania and continue to ministry christians in need, because this is such a blessing! Marcela Sana
Before going through this ministry, I heard many good things about Bob and Joan from friends. While I was visiting a friend in London, I had the opportunity to look into something they have written and I was like “this is so true… I totally agree. I want to have these things implemented in my life.” Therefore, our church group invited them over to have some seminars together on a weekend. All the things they taught were very deep and I was not keeping pace with it all, because I like to contemplate and soak it all in. That is why I personally came back to all that they told us and I was truly blessed beyond words. They taught on wholeness, the orphan spirit and whole- heartedness. The best part was when I had the privilege to pray individually with both of them. I think what affected me most was how honest, open, sweet, encouraging and caring Bob and Joan are. They made me understand that rejection hurts the heart in many ways and can cause me to believe the lies of the enemy, which he uses to form a stronghold in me. All this matters because those strongholds can limit my walk with God, which for me is the most important thing in my life. There are lies (that the cross is not enough or that my value comes from what I do or what others think of me) which we have to face and declare the truth instead. I have also learned from them that it is good to cut every unhealthy emotional soul tie I had in my life. Even just talking about what was on my heart and sharing with them my struggles was immensely helpful and I felt as free as a bird afterwards.
I’m feeling so much better and it was truly a blessing for me to talk pray and everything! I will forever be grateful to God because I get to meet with you and listen to your heart and receive so much from you. I feel powerful and renewed in my spirit. I feel loved and protected. The thoughts and advice you gave me is so powerful it really changed and helped me so much. I wish I had more time and privilege to see what God is doing through you. You are motivating me to desire to want to help others too and I often feel that I want to bring more people to your ministry. I received every word hug and love with my heart open and I do love and admire you so much. Big hugs!!
The spiritual healing that I received in that three hour process was amazing. It is such a personal and loving setting that allows you to forgive yourself as God has forgiven you. Let God, let go as we women in Small Group say. They always used the Word of God to support the truth. It was a spiritual cleansing.
We first met Bob and Joan in April 2016. Then in June 2016, we heard them teach about the orphan spirit. After hearing the teaching, we realized the orphan spirit described our lives. We set up an appointment to go through the entire Freedom Through Christ Ministry. WOW! We were blessed beyond description! The lights turned on! And God gave us more and more freedom as hidden lies were revealed and replaced with the Truth.

Bob and Joan have truly enabled me to meet with God. Their ministry cast light on behavioral tendencies and curses I had over my life. They were not necessarily of my own making and helped me to walk toward freedom and forgiveness in all those areas. Receiving ministry from Bob and Joan introduced me to the Father’s love, and that is when I understood that God likes me. He is not against me and that He is with me no matter what. When hard times come, I am reminded of all the truths I have learned from Bob and Joan. This enables me to carry on and seek God first. Even though it’s been 10 years since this wonderful couple ministered to me, I continue to be blessed by them.
When I first meant Bob and Joan, it was at church. They ministered to me and found out about my relationship with my father from my childhood. During the ministry I felt that I went back when I was a little girl and my dad promised me things that he never did. Before that I saw God only through Jesus. Never was God like a Father to me. I didn’t really understand that because my real father didn’t have time to spend with me. He loves me, but because of the work he never was home and always too tired to spend time with me.
This ministry helped me so much, because since then I opened my eyes to see my Heavenly Father. It helps me to break every chain and generational bondage. Also, during that time I just met a Christian boy. He also went to see Bob and Joan to minister to him.
After that we became close to each other and wanted to know more about Him. Without Bob and Joan, I don’t know if today we would be married. They gave us encouragement and wisdom in our relationship.
Since this amazing couple come in my life, I get encouraged and helped to pass a lot of my fears. They helped me to let down a lot of things from my past. My healing helped me to step in my destiny like a child of God. Through this blessed people, I see God totally differently. Because I had no father to guide me, I saw a distorted God who was like my father. I have experienced a time like when I was in my mother womb. I wanted to came out from it, because when I was there my father spoke bad words on my mother’s life. This afected me while I was in the womb. From this ministry, Bob and Joan helped me and Bianca get closer, our gifts are growing, and I helped Bianca encouraging her and helping her and sustaining her. This ministry was a great blessing. They believed in us, and now we are married just from 1 and a half year from ministry. We bless each other with our presence, and we spoke to other people with this good news. We are examples for others. We pray for them and encourage them healing them physically and spiritually. What this couple gave us, we gave forward to others. We folow their example and their advice every time we talk with them. We love them. Bob is the single person who told me if I was his boy, he will be very proud. About my wife they told the same thing. We feel like their children, and we are grateful for that. These people revolutionized our lives. We love you Bob and Joan.

The Freedom Through Christ program has been a very powerful tool for my wife and I. Even as dedicated believers of 30+ years it was amazing to discover how much hurt and emotional scars we were still carrying around that we weren’t even aware of.
Our story was a little unique because we were getting ready to be trained by Bob and Joan to lead others through the FTCM process. They indicated that before we could go through the training or lead others through the program we needed to experience it for ourselves. This, of course, made great sense and we embraced the opportunity to grow further in our faith and spiritual journey. Little did we realize how powerful it was going to be in our lives.
What is so amazing and powerful about the program is the way it naturally tailors itself to the maturity level and spiritual experience of the recipient. Regardless of the background and spiritual path one has taken to this point in their life, the program speaks right to them at the level that the Holy Spirit has prepared them for. By it’s design it is customized by the Holy Spirit to minister to everyone from caring and nurturing families and backgrounds, to those with very traumatic and painful pasts.
We have now had the privilege of leading many other people through the program. Without fail, a lot of tears flow, lies of the enemy are exposed and replaced with right scripturally-based Godly thinking, forgiveness and healing are received, and true freedom in Christ is launched in their lives.

FTCM has been very impacting for me. The simple but profound truth of who I am in Christ was something I had been struggling with all my adult life since I believed I was a “mistake.” Promises don’t apply to mistakes, and “mistakes” weren’t part of the original plan…that’s what I struggled with. But since my encounter with the truth of who I am in Jesus I feel like a different person! I am walking in the truth the Holy Spirit spoke to me…God had a specific reason for me to be born! Just know that I am having a blast walking that out!
Since Clark and I have become facilitators of FTCM, I have enjoyed watching others walk into the freedom that Jesus intended for us all along. I love being a part of this ministry, and I love even more watching the faces of others when they allow the Holy Spirit to break off the power of the lies they have been living under!
I am blessed every day from having gone through this and am so thankful to the two of you for being obedient to God’s calling on your lives to this ministry. I really am grateful!
