3 Testimonials from Dec 2013

We get hundreds of letters from Yidden each year, but this one is particularly interesting because it's from a non-Jew and it highlights the impact of GYE in that even someone who doesn't understand much of the GYE terminology was still so effected... He writes:

Greetings,

I am what might be called a "spiritual seeker" in today's world. I was a fully educated and ordained clergyman in a major Christian denomination once… a long time ago. I surrendered my credentials in 1993 because I could no longer live with myself or what I had become as a supposed Christian leader. I have been a porn-addict since about puberty and all the prayers, self-flagellations, and beggings of G-d produced no healing, no relief, no liberation, no nothing. So I said to heck with it all and left. But after all these years, I still can't let go of the person G-d intended me to be.

Here I am still struggling with the same demons. I'm an old man now, but on and off I continue to look for salvation. I can't even remember how I stumbled across it… but when I came across GYE I found more instantaneously powerful wisdom there than I have found in 30 years… and in forms I could mostly understand… EXCEPT for the pervasive jewish/hebrew/yiddishkeit terminology for the illiterate goy that I am.

The insights and strategies I gained from your GYE website have already empowered and helped me tremendously. If your GYE materials were made in a universal language, there are millions of souls desperate for purity and holiness that would be more highly responsive than all we could ever hope or imagine.

I write under my own and real email address and name that you may know I am sincere and respectful beyond sincere. Please be assured, for whatever they are worth, I pray most heartily and fervently for you and your mission… and for the preservation of the Jewish people through thick and thin… as seems to be the case from the beginning of time till now… and until the Moshiach comes.

sincerely,

Jerry


Here's a Testimonial from a man who just went through a 5th Step Call on Duvid Chaim's daily phone conferences.

Hi Duvid Chaim,

Words cannot describe the evening I finished that call. There was a lot I wanted to share, but I was not expecting it, so I just shared what came to mind that second.

When I was dancing myself in that room I forgot to share the most important part of the story: I was NOT dancing with myself! I was dancing with Hashem! Tuesday was my Yom Kippur and Simchas Torah together. We were dancing for the start of a new relationship; a real relationship.

I feel closer to Hashem than ever before.

I'm not perfect and have a lot of work ahead of me. But I' coming to realize that me not being perfect IS perfect.

May all the chevra on the call feel this kind of simcha soon!!!


Here's a Testimonial from a woman who turned to GYE for support and was dealing with a husband who refused to admit he had a problem or needed GYE support:

Dear Miriam, עמו''ש

I just wanted to share the good news that my husband finally joined a group. This is in your zechut -- after hearing you talk about being powerless at a phone call, I started davening that Hashem please take care of him because I can't. And Hashem did make it happen that my husband joined a group which is really something I never dreamed he would do in a million year.

May Hashem bench you with briyut, nachat, hatzlacha, and kol tuv.
