MISSIONARY WORK IN ARIZONA – GOAL R 175 000
My name is Duncan Harling and this is my family, with me in the photo—my wife, Lee-Ann, and my daughters, Sade and Caer.
I am very aware that our world, Earth—is suffering enormous upheaval. It seems that every aspect and corner of society has lost its way, and we are all being held captive to greed and selfishness. I am learning it is only through each and every person realizing the way to heal the wounds we all created, is to be in service to each other and come together in communities under one God. We not only have individual destinies, but we have a collective, global destiny. That destiny for our world can come into being through adherence to God’s Laws. This is the focus of my education in ministry with Global Community Communications Alliance Church (GCCA). I believe that we, in our small way, can make a difference and help this vision of a New World materialize.
For the last three years, I have been a member of the Church and have been enrolled in the University of Ascension Science and the Physics of Rebellion (UASPR) classes, via correspondence and home-study course work. I have been invited by the Church for the next 5 years to serve and integrate into their outreach and missionary work with my family in Arizona. I will live with my family in the community and gain the experience of living our spirituality by focusing our lives fully into community outreach and dedicated missionary work. With this step, we can be a part of assisting to make a difference in the lives of our fellow brothers and sisters.
In 2010 I started experiencing symptoms of what Doctors diagnosed as ‘Degenerative Arthritis’ in my lower spine brought on by childhood Scheuermann’s disease. The manifestation of these symptoms being Sciatica –excruciating pain and the loss of mobility. After two years of intensive physiotherapy and pain medication, I was finally rushed in for an emergency surgery to prevent what the surgeon warned would be permanent disability due to the Sciatic nerve being severed. Six titanium screws were used to separate my lower vertebrae after the discs had disintegrated. Due to medical negligence, however, the hardware was infected with Multi-drug resistant Staphylococcus. After two further failed operations, eventually I regressed into continual spasms and the inability to walk. I couldn’t lie down or stand and had to sleep sitting at a table.
All the while during this experience, there were several family tragedies, and I still had my own nuclear family to look after. When I look back now, it was only through what happened next that we managed to get through this process which took 7 years to resolve, but put us on the path to the most incredible healing…
I never believed any of the Doctor’s diagnoses and came to the conclusion that I would never heal until I surrendered to God—absolutely. It was clear I needed to reconcile my relationship with my Creator and start on the long journey of atonement. With open, active wounds, debilitating pain, and a family who needed me to be strong I went to God and asked for his forgiveness and help. EVERYTHING changed.
Through incredible divine serendipity, I was led to get in touch with Global Community Communications Alliance Church (GCCA) – a Church and Eco-Village in Arizona, USA.
This is exactly what happened… through meditation and prayer for guidance, I began an internet search through various websites and I discovered a series of very difficult to digest channellings from an entity claiming to be from Egyptian mythology. In one of the Papers the word ‘Urantia’ was mentioned. I looked it up and discovered the Urantia Book. The moment I read the introduction, I knew this was what I had been searching for, for so many years. I felt I knew the book already. After I read the book 6 months later, through continued searching I discovered the name ‘Gabriel of Urantia’ and found an excerpt from Cosmic Family Volume I. I immediately contacted the publishers: Global Communications Alliance Church and bought Volumes I & II as well as Gabriel of Urantia’s autobiography, The Divine New Order and Teachings on Healing by Gabriel of Urantia and Niánn Emerson Chase.
During this period I started realizing how wrong I had been in my life for so many years, and I had to correct everything. I knew it was going to be difficult. I knew it was going to cause massive turmoil in my life and in the life of my family. It took me many months of anxiousness during my reading and study, but I finally listened to the voice of God within me. I told my family about how we were going to be healing together, and how God had shown me what it was I needed all of us to do to make right. I told them it was going to be difficult, and there were going to be moments of despair, anger and frustration, but we had to go through it to heal – not only for me to heal physically, but for us all to heal emotionally, and to get to know God.
I have seen it written that miracles are only miracles if you don’t expect them…in that case, what happened next was truly miraculous! All through this process of healing emotionally, I had been going to see different Doctors to see if one of them knew what to do to help my physical body. God shared with me that we were going to be moving to another town and it was there that I was going to be healed. It seemed like healing was a long way off and what had to happen before we could move was almost impossible; but nothing is impossible with God! We were moved to a small town and within two months I had found a surgeon who said he would fix me. An operation was scheduled, I prepared for the worst and made my peace with whatever the outcome. I surrendered completely. The whole process of my surgery was incredible.
Although this was the 4th major surgery in the same place on my body—the last one of which left me unable to walk—this time there was absolutely no pain. The surgeon removed the hardware from my body. Within a few weeks I was all healed up. Now, I have no pain at all and am mobile as I was 20 years ago! The large scars are the only physical reminder of what I went through, but they are scars I cherish. I have never felt so protected and loved than I was during this process—and much of that had to do with my family at Global Community Communications Church who arranged prayer sessions for me; something I can never repay.
Through this whole experience, I have learned what it means to surrender, to submit to correct authority, and to use faith to create hope. God shone the light on the path, and we have been walking that path together ever since.
We have been blessed with the opportunity to reach out to others, to heal, to serve and most importantly, we have found our TRUE family in the community at Global Community Communications Church.
