"It did not take very long before I was excited about this book and it's great story. I know you will be inspired. It can happen again -- even greater because the time is short. Let's get our faith up and be inspired for a fresh outpouring of God's Spirit."
"Nothing, and I do mean nothing, excites me more than the testimonies of an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. True Stories of Azusa Street and Beyond is a perfect example. They cause my heart to burn for the ‘more’ found on the pages of Scripture and recorded in history.
This book by Tommy Welchel and Michelle P. Griffith is the sequel to They Told Me Their Stories. Known as the last living link to the Azusa Street Awakening, Tommy had the great privilege of sitting at the feet and hearing the stories of those who experienced the outpouring firsthand. This record of miracles from God's goodness is absolutely stunning.
Prepare to be encouraged and challenged in your faith as you read the record of an awakening that is still being felt today. More importantly, prepare to hunger for more in your lifetime."
"We are in the year 2013. It is no coincidence that this book you hold is being written and unleashed. In 1909, William Seymour, the great revival pioneer and father of the Azusa Street Movement, prophesied along with Maria Woodworth-Etter, the mighty healing revivalist, that in 100 years a revival, far greater in power and influence than Azusa Street would be sent from heaven again. It's 2013! We’re in the100-year period! It’s time.
Could this book be the catalyst for this prophesied heavenly invasion to be released? Read afresh the stories of Azusa Street that still go on and become an instrument in this next heavenly invasion."
"It is with great pleasure that I recommend to you “True Stories of the Miracles of Azusa Street and Beyond.” I have always loved revival history, and have been blessed by reading these stories. It is a desire of mine to always see more, and the stories in this book, have inspired me to ask for more. They are a chapter of our spiritual heritage in the world today. The stories of healing that we see here are foreshadows of what God is doing in the world today, and the movements that have started, have come from people being made hungry. The hunger is inspired by stories of what God has done, which inspires the question, why not here? Why not now? The new stories are no exception.
I encourage you, as you read this book to ask God to take your hunger and increase it. To increase your desire to see Him move on the earth today in power"
"There is power in the testimony. Tommy Welchel has recorded many of the outstanding miracles of the Azusa Street revival. This generation will capture the impartation of this major move of God’s Spirit. It will radiate from the pages."
"The actions of the forefathers and mothers are a sign to the children" is a common Jewish expression. The testimonies and stories of past generations are so significant because what the Lord does in the past, is a sneak preview of what He wants to do in the future. That is why this is one of the more timely and exciting books that I have seen in awhile. What the Lord did in the days of William Seymour and Azusa serves as a reminder and testimony to what He wants to do in even greater measure in our day. These stories will increase your faith for the impossible and will release the supernatural into your life through the power of testimony. May God breathe upon it and cause it to stir revival!"
"I asked the Lord what my place was in the body of Christ. He said I was a witness and pointed me to what He told Saul in Acts 26:16:
‘But rise and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of those things which thou has seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee.’
Tommy Welchel is a witness to the Azusa Glory, God’s manifested presence. He carries that anointing as it was transmitted to him at Pisgah as he absorbed each Azusa young person’s story. I have learned over the years that God always has His witnesses. Together Tommy and Michelle in True Stories of the Miracles of Azusa Street and Beyond have captured that Anointing combined with today’s Anointing for each one of us for God’s Glorious Finale! And to think that there was a 100-year-old prophecy that proclaimed it! Exciting!
God bless you Tommy and Michelle for obeying the Lord and compiling this vital information for such a time as this!"
