“Len Ministries Has Impacted My Life…”


William Cozzens (Prisoner at Union Correctional Institution, Raiford, FL) – I went to a Kairos [weekend] for the first time ever. Enjoyed myself very much and met a lot of very good people. I don’t know what I expected actually. But it was very enlightening for me, and I learned a lot and came away blessed for the experience. I look forward to many more. I work in the dental lab and because of their expectations I won’t be able to go meet with Len very often. I go to Eleven22 [service in our Chapel] every Monday which I enjoy very much. I can’t miss a lot of work during the week as they will think I don’t want to be there, and that job is a blessing to have. But when I have the opportunity, I will go to see Len on Wednesdays. But will have the Kairos get togethers to look forward to. I have 30 years to do, and have done about 11. I think I have about 15 more to do. Somewhere around there anyway. I am OK with that and what will happen will happen. I don’t think about that too much anymore as I put it and myself in GODS hands and that is where I want to be. (March 2023)

Pastor Eric Lockett (Jacksonville, FL) -The evangelism class was great! I thought it was going to be boring, but it was far from that. Len and his crew were on point with activities and timely information. I must say it was quite enlightening with a wealth of info. The catch phrase “free gift of eternal life” was magnificent. The bottom line – we really had something wonderful to offer people. This program was worth every penny for the five days of constant training and leadership. God has given my church a great tool to use for our evangelism efforts. (February 2023)

Lera S. (Ulan-Ude, Siberia) – When we met, I was 16 years old. Then I just came to Christ, my heart was wounded, and my thinking was spoiled. I had many complexes and fears, there was a lot of NOT love. Then I was still very afraid to talk about Jesus among my classmates, and I was afraid to even ask my parents if I could go to church. I am writing this to you to say that I still remember how you told me “I am proud of you.” These words make me move on. Your visit really influenced me. Now I think that if you hadn’t prayed for me and said these words to me, I’m not sure that I would be with God now. On that day, God the Father spoke to me through you.
Thank you very much for your service. I thank you for your heart. I hope that you will come to us again in Ulan-Ude. Of course, this is very far, but Jesus does incredible things. (January 2020)

Blake B. (Jacksonville, FL) -This class has renewed my commitment to serve God and be obedient to His Great Commission. I began praying for the Holy Spirit to be renewed in my life so I could once again be His witness. It wasn’t long after that when the opportunity to learn about EE came along. Once I enrolled in the class, the results of effective witnessing were immediately apparent. During our weekly on-the-job training sessions, we saw a large number of people come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.  The reality is that the lost are all around us, even sitting on the same pew with us at church! Most people only need someone to care enough about them to present the Gospel in a clear and understandable manner, which is exactly what I can now do. (December 2019)

Pastor Ilya (Novokuznetsk, Siberia) -Your ministry in our church was life changing!
When I was coming to the seminar I was prepared to learn and in all humility, I thought that I knew how to share Christ with people. I also thought that I can do it really well.
After the seminar I understood that I need to learn how to do it the right way! It is so much fun when you actually bring people to the point of receiving the Gift of Eternal Life!
Thank you so much for coming to our church and giving us this great tool!
I’m traveling right now and will be back in Novokuznetsk next week. So when I return we will have a planning meeting about doing the 13 week training program. My desire is that every church member goes through this training! (July 2018)

Val R. (UCI) – I just want to express my sincere gratitude and admiration for Mr. Len and his ministry. Last year when I saw that an evangelism class was being offered, I was kind of undecided. But I took opportunity and signed up just to satisfy my curiosity. But after a few lessons I felt that changes in my spiritual life. I learned how to communicate with people in more freely and even in more persuasive ways to deliver the Gospel message. (February 2018)

Douglas J. (UCI) – Since I’ve been in the evangelism class I’m learning a great deal about witnessing. I’m learning how to be more effective. I’ve discovered that this program does work even though I’m not quite finished with it yet. Everything I’ve learned has worked and I have benefited from all of it. One thin in particular is that my prayer life has increased. I pray more now than before. I have become more positive and I’m more focused on God’s will for my life. (December 2017)

Edith H. – During the training, initially, I was nervous about talking with non-Christians about their faith, yet I know that Christ commands us to share His Good News. In the past I have tried to witness, but did not have the “tools” to ask a person to commit their life to Christ. I began the 13-week class in September. Our training included scripture, evangelism materials, and homework. After the teaching portion of the class we participated in on-the-job training – sharing the Gospel in public places. Our trainers took the lead for about 4 weeks, then, those of us in training gradually shared more and more of the Gospel outline each week. During the final weeks of training, we were sharing the Gospel completely. Personally, I have seen nearly 20 people receive Christ as Savior within the past 3 1/2 months. Through much prayer, study, excellent teachers, and the on-the-job training, I have become more comfortable in sharing my faith. (December 2016)

Kent N. (UCI) – The evangelism class changed the way I thought about salvation by allowing me to witness to others. I shared the Good News and prayed with those who would listen or were in need. About ten souls were saved by my witness about Jesus and eternal life. The most important thing I’ve learned was trusting in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life is the only way. (September 2015)

Daniele Y. – I got in contact with LEN Ministries in 2006 when Pastor Len Showalter and his delegation first came to Cameroon with my brother Guy Landry who is a pastor in Russia. At that time, as I remember, when in contact with EE in practice, I was not very sure I was saved when I was first asked the two diagnostic questions. Later on, I went through the EE outline in Eldoret Kenya in 2007, as trainee and also interpreter. I learned a lot. I got in practical relationship with the Gospel of grace. I learned especially that Heaven was not earned not deserved, and we were saved by faith in Jesus Christ alone to receive eternal life. Since then my heart is burning to share the Gospel especially as I now have a convincing tool.
I have been intervening in the training of Len Ministries in Africa since then, in Kenya and Burkina Faso. For the moment, I am in charge of organizing those who were trained already and following up the souls that were won to Christ during the training on the field. I am very grateful for Len Ministries who made this impartation possible for me. (January 2015)
