One of the Old Testament commandments of Abba that was clearly intended for the benefit of the family of God, and the benefit of generations to follow them, was to erect what are called “altars of remembrance” made of stones to preserve the memory of God’s goodness. (Gen 12:7,8; 13:18; 26:25; 33:20; Dt 27:1-8; Josh 4:1-9, 20-24; 22:26-27)

This collection of testimonies is arranged in convenient sections, each containing wonderful encouragements involving “touches” from the Father. By fashioning these modern-day electronic “altars” of remembrance from what we call “TouchStones” we hope to bless the heart of Abba as you are blessed in these readings.

Touch these “stones” and be encouraged by Abba’s goodness!


In this collection of encouraging articles, you will find many timeless testimonies [from our North America ministry files!] of how the Father touches us with His miraculous interventions in our lives, and in our crises. Each article is centered on a specific theme and contains testimonies that illustrate the biblical principles shared in the introductions.

One of Steve’s favorite pastimes is to get mission team members  “wrecked beyond recognition” (WBR)! Click on the link below to access mission highlight reports from the early years of our Africa mission ministry. You will be “WBR” just by reading this diverse sampling of amazing adventures with Abba in Africa! These can serve as TouchStones from the Africa mission field!

TESTIMONIES FROM NORTH AMERICA (and a few other “homes!”) One of the frequent questions asked of our TouchTeam members regarding the miracles of God is: “What about stories from closer to home?” These TouchStones are gathered from our files of more “local” miracles and “God-sightings.” When possible, we have included original reports from those who have been “touched” by the Father and shared their blessing(s) with us in writing.
