Changed Lives Testimony's

" You ministered God's Love and Goodness bringing healing and life.  

My life was changed and I rejoice other lives are being changed to."

"Since I've met you, I am believing His supernatural Word and work as you taught me and my people in SOI class. I am awakened from dogma and theology which couldn't bring me to real gospel. This morning I heard your recorded lecture while I was driving. 
Everyday I want to enter His presence as like you."

Welles & Katrin write,    December 11, 2009
"Rick and Joy's consistent ministry to us in prayer and exhortation,
 has been and is an ongoing encouragement to Welles and myself. 
Their lives are an example of what they are teaching and their joy is catching,
especially Joy's. Many times what Pastor Rick talks to me about will turn out
to be confirmation to what God has already put in my heart, 
or will get me on the right track."

Kangmoo & Hyunsun Choi write,   November 22, 2009

"We thank God that He gave us much grace in our lives through your ministry.
 We've learned what these means to our lives; being a servant of the Lord,
 being a friend of Jesus, being a son of Heavenly Father, and being a bride of Jesus.
 You didn't just taught these to us, but live a model how to LIVE these. 
We've tried to find "What's MY ministry or What's MY calling,
 but found that we should say,  "What do YOU do, Lord?"
 Where do YOU see and go? Let us follow YOU".  It is not about the 'ME' thing,
 but it is about 'HIM'. You've helped us to refocus Him, getting out of me, me, me stuff."

" I served as a team member for the Divine Healing Room
 led by Pastors Rick and Joy Mcilvaine from 200? to 200?.
 During this time, I heard several individuals give testimony
 about how God healed them physically or emotionally. 
Several of these healing's occurred prior to the prayer ministry
time as the people simply sat in the presence of God
and while listening to teaching from The Bible.  

Before the Healing Room opened for the evening,
the team members joined together to pray, worship and focus
all of their attention on Jesus Christ, giving Him thanks
and glory for all that He would do that evening. 
You always had faith that Jesus had already completed the work
before the people had even arrived at the Healing Room. 
Rick and Joy often shared that it was their desire for people
to be healed immediately upon walking into the building
because of the presence of The Holy Spirit. 
I believe that this often occurred.

Rick and Joy always encouraged individuals
visiting the Healing Room to turn all of their attention
and thoughts towards Jesus Christ and to meet with Him,
encounter Him, rather than a ministry. 
This is truly a humble ministry with a great love for Jesus Christ, 
His Holy Word and His people.
Rick and Joy Mcilvaine truly believe and live according to Isaiah 53."

Thanks for your good work.
You are changing the lives of many 
who come to contact with your Ministry."


Terry Writes , "I am happy to write a few lines on my cataract healing. 
In the summer of 2005 I begun experiencing vision problem.
 I thought originally my near sightedness got worse, 
but my optometrist told me that I had cataracts.
 I had a business trip to Seattle that summer. 
My wife looked up a healing place  in the internet and I decided
 to go to one of them while in town.
 Richard and his associates prayed over me.
 Of course Richard did not know who I was.
 Richard must have sensed something although I did not; he said,
 "Did you feel something?"  
 I meditated at the airport the following morning (within 8-hour period), 
and then I was healed instantly after I felt something hot on my left arm.
 Immediately after this, I was able to read airline monitors clearly. 
After I came back to NC, I visited a cornea specialist; they found no cataracts.
 I told the story to doctors and nurses; they were all amazed. 
One other interesting story was that one of Richard associates
 told me to delegate at work. This turned out to be the direction I needed at work.
 I was getting too busy at work having 14 employees in my division.
 I began delegating after I came back; things have never been the same since then.
 My career blossomed and my authority increased at work; 
all these blessings followed supernaturally. "

Nancy Smith writes,    December 1, 2009
"I was healed many times at the Eastside Healing Rooms.
 My back was touched, a shoulder injury healed and post surgery issues
 healed quickly as well.  I saw family members come and be healed . 
 My mother was healed of stomach pain problems and 
now lives a thriving energetic full life in her late 70's!

I was a member of the Divine Healing Rooms of Eastside for 4 years
 and I have to say the one thing I admire most about  the Mcllvaine's
 is that they totally protect the annointing at all cost. 
 They are ministers that have the utmost integrity, honesty
 and love for Christ and do his will intently. 
 I have observed that they are not ashamed of the outpouring of the Spirit
 and allow people to freely experience Him.  
They are kind and gentle when ministering to others. 

 Rick brings the word which is always the rhema of God,
 a very ready word for those coming and the annointing and
 presence of God accompany his preaching. 
 Joy and Rick are a fabulous team that oooze healing annointing
 and God's Glory presence,  They are humble and respect others,
 always compassionate towards their needs.  
They carry the annointing with total respect and humility,
they are truly my examples- in the faith."

Mrs. K C, Sammamish, WA  writes by Email , March 14, 2011

" In May 2010, our much loved 12 1/2 year old Golden Retriever was diagnosed with a fast spreading melanoma. We had the original tumor surgically removed from her gums at that time and we were sad to see another tumor that appeared in her neck  on the same side as the oral tumor  and that showed up in late January which meant the cancer was likely spreading into her lymphatic system. The secondary tumor continued to grow at an alarming rate and I knew the prognosis for Maggie was not good. We had the tumor biopsied and it was definitely melanoma. Still, we didn't give up hope. I increased all of her supplements (everything from L-Glutathione from a company called Immunocal to the Budwig protocol for cancer to a strict diet with low carbs, high protein and absolutely no sugar. I increased the selenium; added zinc, put her on a baking soda / filtered water protocol, etc) but the tumor continued to grow ... from the size of a grape to a large softball in less than 2 1/2 weeks. At one point, her entire face swelled as if she had been stung by a bee and her sleep was so restless that I couldn't stand the thought of her suffering and decided I needed to take her to our regular vet to discuss euthanasia.  Our wonderful vet saw Maggie on Feb. 24thand held the clinic open for us (on a late snowy night). I called the family to let them know where we were going and my husband met us there. The vet wanted to try one more thing so, gave Maggie an anti-inflammatory shot and an antibiotic thinking the additional upper facial swelling might simply go down but that a visit to the oncologist was recommended because she just didn't have any idea 'what to do about the cancerous tumor.' The additional facial swelling did go down, Maggie seemed to be a bit more comfortable and we just continued to go day by day.... I took Maggie to a canine oncologist on March 1 to discuss our options....and nothing seemed 'doable' for an older dog. I had been involved in the ministry of prayer and healing before, but for some reason, did not feel called with the specific gift of healing; I have more of a gift of administration; possibly discernment; but haven't been blessed with the wonderful gift of healing and this is a gift that I heard the McIlvaine's did have. They told me they had been praying for the sick for thirty years.  I took Maggie to the McIlvaine's for hands-on prayer soon after the oncology appointment. They lovingly prayed for Maggie and that alone was a comfort to me! But, it turned out to be more than a comfort. Miraculously; the tumor began to shrink and in 2 days, there was a SIGNIFICANT change in the size! It was about 1/3  the original size and everyone commented on it. Our 19 year old son asked me "where did Maggie's basketball go?"  I have to say, I was told to 'come, expecting a miracle' and I did that but I guess I was really just HOPING for a miracle and now, I have seen it first hand. I returned with Maggie to show Richard and Joy the incredible results of a loving God  and to thank them for their willingness to do the Lord's work here on earth  and they again prayed for Maggie  and now, the tumor is completely gone....Maggie is back to chasing squirrels, barking at the neighbor's dogs and loving life I am so thankful and give all the glory to the Lord with much appreciation to Richard and Joy !

With love",   By:  Mrs. K C  & Maggie,   Sammamish, WA  March 14, 2011   by Email March 14, 2011
