David and Lynda Murphy: Former Vineyard Christian Fellowship
Though raised Catholic, David went down a path of addiction and despair after his parents divorced. Lynda married an abusive man, and when a custody dispute went south, she found herself in jail. Lynda felt the presence of Christ in that moment, and felt compelled to get confirmed in a nearby Brethren Church, on the same morning that David, having hit bottom, decided to show up hung over at the same Church. And that’s just the first ten minutes of their episode!
The Murphys’ powerful experiences in the Charismatic movement, as well as their heart for the missions, culminated in their dramatic realization of Jesus’ true presence in the Blessed Sacrament. David’s thought at the end sums up the heart of their testimony: “I wish my Evangelical friends could have the ‘a-ha’ moment I had with the Eucharist. They would be so grateful.”
