Living In The Glory Zone

(the story of David Herzog) by Maria Erokhina The mission of CFNI alumni David and Stephanie Herzog is to “take the Glory to the nations.” They travel around the world, carrying the message of a greater reality—the Glory Zone—that we, as believers, are called to live in. Here is David’s story. First Encounter With The Supernatural David invited Jesus into his heart at ten years old. At the age of 13, David got baptized in the Holy Spirit at a youth camp. “That’s when the supernatural really kicked in,” he recalls. Two years later, he...

God’s Plans Are Bigger

(the story of Manami Braga da Silva) By Maria Erokhina Manami (Mana) was born and raised in the beautiful Japanese city of Toyama.

It’s unlikely we would think of the word smuggler, let alone a Bible smuggler. However, for CFNI alumnus Patrick Klein that is a large part of his calling, and he is anointed for it. For over 20 years, Patrick Klein has helped deliver over 1 million Bibles around the world through some of the tightest security on earth. But why would a young man, full of vitality and promise, choose such a dangerous...
