I continue to pray and preaching good news of Jesus Christ to the nearest churches, friends and other persons I could meet. I started downloding your books read them and spread the good news as much as I can, and I found that they are so amazing since they are realy a good tool for the reader to get connected to God almighty spiritualy. Here in the village so many people asked me how they can get a copy of some of your books because not every body can access the soft and/or translated in the mother tongue. So I told them that I will ask if they can get some. I wish they may reach to many people as possible. May God bless you and your family.

John O. - Nyamira County, Kenya:
I am John O. serving the lord at Nyamira county in Kenya. I meet with Pastor Richard from Kisii county who gave me a book which has blessed my heart so much. What really touched my heart is God's grand plan and also God's will and purpose for my life. From these I understand that God has special plan and purpose for me, my family, the church and the ministry. I shared with the church members were really excited and were asking me if they can get some of this books for themselves to study. Brother in the Lord we are unable to get those kind of books and church materials like novals and Bibles. Pray for us so that God can provide for our need so that we can be well equip for God work.

Pastor Cleophas - Uganda:
I wanted to let you know that we had 4 Muslims here in Uganda who converted to Christ after reading your book. After getting the good news, people here are eager to receive many more copies.
I am so grateful and I thank so much Jim Harper who is teaching me more and more about the Word of God through His wonderful book “Understand God's will for my life" and this is really helping me in enlightening my spirit in my preaching ministry and anointing my gift to be a shepherd of His sheep.
After reading this book I gave my life over to Christ. Thank you Lord!
Your book has changed my life. I took 4 years of bible study classes, which I very much enjoyed, however, I had a difficult time understanding the big picture. Your book was simple to read yet gave great detail and guidance. I felt that God was speaking to me through your writing. I will be sharing your book with my friends and family and will ask that they do the same.
Thank you so much for giving me your book. It was so wonderful and a great treasure. When I went home for the holidays here in Rwanda I told friends and family about your book. I now wish for all of my friends to have it. God was speaking to me through your book. God bless you, I look forward to receive your next book.
My ministry kindly confesses with our mouths that Jim Harper's book has spiritually lifted us up and brought us closer to the amazing grace of God. Jim has been a preacher to us even though he is not physically in Rwanda, but we pray that we will see him coming to Rwanda soon to teach us face to face. Jim's book "Understand God's will for my life" is truly amazing and is a great book that we have never seen before. His book will help convict and convert many hearts to Christ.
I just love your book and I gave my neighbor one, can I have more?
I enjoyed your book immensely! It really simplifies the Gospel for new believers and it would be very beneficial to my students. I currently have 30 students enrolled at Teen Challenge's Anderson Academy and they range from 13 years old to 18 years old. I'd be grateful to receive some copies of your book for my students. Thank you and I pray that God's hand of favor will continue to bless you and yours.
Jim, I thank you because many of my questions have been answered. Your amazing book has helped me to know the incredible plan of God. I take this book like my treasure.
I am a born again believer and also an evangelist. This book is very inspiring and helpful. It has given me more wisdom and insights from the word of God and understanding His will upon my life in full detail and made me aware of what I am capable.
I took print outs of your book all 124 pages. Praise the Lord for your great book reading carefully every page. Pray that God will help me to translate this book into Telugu here in India. Please accept me as your partner in your ministry. Faithfully in Christ.
Today I received Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior of my life. I heard the preaching about the passion of Jesus Christ and I felt the Holy Ghost touching my heart. Immediately I decided to stop such evil doing and as I receive good teachings from brother Jim Harper by reading his book “Understand God’s will for my life.” I am feeling as anointed to continue further serving the Lord.
I am 80 years old and it is the best book I have ever read - and I have read a lot of books!
I have been serving the Lord for so long in the past, but when I was seriously sick I decided to leave the service for the Kingdom of God and I was converted to Islam. But since I became a Muslim I did not find any joy neither love as the one of Jesus Christ. May our living God bless you abundantly dear brother Jim Harper and your wife Charlene for your book “Understand God’s will for my life” which is really helping and comforting me in my spiritual life.
I love your book that you gave me when we met. The chapter six of your book is my great inspiration of all. I would like to invite you to come to Santiago de los Caballeros to share some conference or leadership training with the team of pastors we belong to.
Since I started undergoing the teachings from Jim Harper through His book “Understand God's will for my life,” I am feeling more and more loving Jesus Christ and to be following His way as I find that His Word is really wonderful. I feel that it is a privilege and grace as I got baptized in full immersion.
Dear brother, your book is very wonderful and it has helped me so much in my life. I am so happy to become a spark! I will bring to many youth this light.
I am being blessed as I read your book. One of my passions is writing. I can't even imagine the amount of time you put into this amazing, easy to read, right on book. Love the way you substantiate everything you say with a scripture. Now that I have your book, I can think of several friends I'd like to give it to, so am even more eager.
Thank you dear brother Jim Harper as your teachings found in your book “Understand God’s will for my life” are leading me in my ministry and Christian life. Through your teachings I find that the way of Jesus is a way of genuine pleasure. I have indeed committed to be sharing what I read from your book. So I pray the Lord to choose me among the winners to enter heaven.
"Understand God's will for my life" is a treasure for both the seeker who is searching for meaning and purpose in life, and those who are looking to deepen their faith and learn more from scripture. Jim makes it simple by getting to the core of God's message in a relevant and personal way. If you read his book - it will be life changing.
On page 20 there is a heading "He made you unique and special for a reason." This section helped me to understand why I am different from everyone else and to know my mission will be accomplished.
Jim, God led you to bring His foundational truths "front and center" and make them easy to digest and understand and without watering down their impact or power. Thank you for sharing the Light of the world with everyone! The Lord your God is with you.
It would be a blessing for me and the leader staff to have you visit us to provide seminary and sermon teachings. Believers in Haiti and Dominican Republic could receive grace upon grace.
I praise the Lord Jesus Christ as the teachings from the book of Jim Harper which are showing me God’s ways to follow and I praise Him as I am following His ways because today I have Jesus Christ as the only Lord and Savior of my life. Why does God allow pain and suffering in the world? This was my daily song in my heart. But now, I have just found my answer on page 36 of Jim's book “Understand God’s will for my life.” Praise the Lord!
Thank you for letting me read your book! I can see you put your whole heart into it and I pray the Lord uses it to bring many into a forever relationship with Him!
I found grace when I read the good teachings from the book of Jim Harper. These teachings are really helping so much to grow spiritually because I have decided to follow Jesus Christ as the only Lord and Savior of my life and then to live in His likeness. Thank you so much Jim & wife Charlene for your wonderful book “Understand God’s will for my life” which really preaches to the people of God. Together we will win as many souls as possible for our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jim, I visited with my son yesterday. I had given him the book on Easter Sunday and he is reading and enjoying it! Thank God, this will help him be grounded in the faith after a number of years of wandering and it will give him a future to fulfill. Thank you so much.
In your book I learned that I was in God’s plan before I was born. I now wish to be a spark for everyone and in everything that I do. I will start to achieve the purpose of being a spark until the return of Jesus Christ. Thank you for helping me understand!
Jim, your book is AMAZING! I loved it! It is very, very good, and I can imagine a six week study around it. Thank you Jim! I am going to have my Jim read it now, starting at the beginning.
May the Lord bless you so much as you are helping me to change my behavior in a godly way and to serve the Lord during the rest of my life. I will be pleased to further receive more books in our church to give to the many numbers of believers who need your wonderful books.
Jim, I've been remiss in not acknowledging the amazing job you did with your book! I can't imagine the hours and dedication it took. A real triumph!
Jim Harper has a real & honest faith. It shows in his encouraging & challenging book "Understand God's will for my life." Jim provides answers that connect with everyday life and are firmly grounded in the Bible. Definitely worth the read.
I am so happy to now understand God's will for my life! It is precious to know that I was made for a mission.
I was given a painful physical ailment, which acts as Satan’s messenger to beat me and keep me from being proud. Three times I prayed to the Lord about this and asked him to take it away. But His answer was “My grace is all you need for my power is greatest when you are weak.” I am now proud of my weaknesses in order to feel the protection of Christ’s power over me. These words in chapter 1 showed me that I am not the only one who has dark spots in my heart, but we all have. This has encouraged me to continue to gain faith in God and love Him more than I did before. Even though my body and Satan are fighting against me, I was made for a mission and I will not be alone but with God.
Jim, thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to read your book. Wow, I'm just blown away. I LOVED it! It's so important to share the truth and shine the Light for Christ. Love to hear about how God's working through you to help "seek and save the lost" (Luke 19:10, NIV).
All my life I was sinful. The teachings of brother Jim Harper and his book are really a light as I see clearly God’s ways through His various scriptures in the topics. This can be revealed only to faithful servants of God as you are. Praise be to the Lord!
Jim, I really enjoyed reading the draft version of your book. You have done a fantastic job digging into the Word. You tackle a ton in this book. Once you get it edited and refined...it's going to be a powerful book. Well done!
Dear Jim, your book has helped me in many ways. Before I read your book I did not know who Jesus Christ was - but now your book has helped me to know Him! Your book also taught me how I can follow my God and what is His salvation. It taught me that God lives among us and He has a great plan for my life. Thank you!
After reading your book - I would like to be a spark so I can be a light to those who are in the dark. I don’t know how to thank God who created people like you (Jim Harper) who don’t forget to wake the others who are still sleeping in the dark. The word on page 100 (Be a spark) has made a great thing inside my heart of being a spark. May God bless you for helping me to wake up from the sins.
Jim, I just wanted to tell you how enthusiastically the online resources that you have on your web site were received last night and how well your book complimented the nights study "Finding God's will for your life." It was a wonderful study and your book helped me so, to put together discussion points. God was and will be glorified! I can't thank you enough for listening to the Spirit of God and writing and producing this book!
In chapter 2 I learned that God has a plan for me - and that is so wonderful to me! This means that I now understand that I was made for a mission. Thank you so very much!
Jean de Dieu:
In your book, chapter 6, I learned that when you live according to God's Will He will provide you with a supernatural peace and a supernatural joy in your life. This is wonderful for me!
I was born into a Catholic family. I have been therefore attending a Catholic church with both my parents when I was yet very young. Many thanks for our teachers Jim Harper and his wife Charlene as your teachings which I receive through Jim’s book “Understand God’s will for my life” are wonderful, helping me to know well the Scriptures in your teachings. I am delighted when I share your teachings with others in our village. Many thanks and God bless you abundantly as you are faithfully serving Him.
In your book I learned that Satan has no real power over me - other than to try to deceive me. Thank you for telling me who Satan really is!
