John 8:31-32 – KJV “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”  

Beth is married to Ben Auman and they have two beautiful daughters, an awesome Son-in-law and two beautiful Granddaughters. Ben and Beth have received the fullness of the Lord’s power to restore and make all things new. Their personal testimony led Beth to answer the Lords call as a Watchman on the Wall – Strategic Prophetic Intercession, allowing the truth (Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior) to lead and guide her to reveal Himself in every prayer opportunity and the freedom comes because Jesus is faithful every time.The Lord has called her to a Psalm 20 Ministry and He faithfully grants the decrees and prophetic declarations into the lives of those He calls her to Watch over.
She walks in Eph 1:17-23 allowing the Spirit of wisdom and revelation provided by Father God through the birth, life, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, that the Holy Spirit will enlighten her eyes in every prayer opportunity and grant her according to Psalm 20 the fulfillment of all petitions. On Jesus alone she trusts and abides in Him – He is faithful..

Beth walks in the Ministry of Prophetic Intercessory Prayer since receiving the call to prayer by Father God. She founded and has operated Faith Testimony Ministries – an International Ministry of Prayer since 2003 and trusts that He is faithful every single time that He is included in any situation. She is called as a Watchman on the wall and watches over that which the Lord has called her to.

Through three mutual longtime friends Beth was introduced to JoBeth and Lee.  God had a glorious plan and we were all a part of His plan.

Through a long time mutual friend JoBeth and Beth were introduced via the telephone – on a Strategic Intercessory assignment. They knew in a moments time that the Lord had knit their hearts in intercession together like two pieces of a puzzle.. They have enjoyed friendship, many strategic assignments and watched the Lord perform faithful miracles through prayer and intercession and have a deep faith and trust in the Lord.

JoBeth and Beth were joyfully presented with the gift of spending 6 days together. They were able share the love, faith and trust in the Lord that is truly beautiful. (They trusted in the Lord with all of their hearts  – the He has designed the perfect opportunity for them to come together in person.) He is faithful, and in the fullness of His time – He grants the desires of our hearts.  Their friendship is a testimony.
Lee and Beth worked together for many years at a local hospital in North Carolina. They were introduced by one of the most kind and loving people on the entire earth, Linda Rankin.  Linda facilitated an amazing bond of friendship because she has the willingness in her heart to share her friends. After Beth and Lee had left their roles at the hospital, Linda invited both Beth and Lee to her Christmas party and they were reunited. At Linda’s Christmas party they found a much deeper connection shared by both – Jesus Christ.  It’s been an amazing journey – Jesus once again proving that people are placed in our lives sometimes for a season – but always for a reason and He builds the most amazing testimonies and relationships. Lee is truly a united one.

We never know how the Lord is going to bring forever friends – united ones onto our path.  We must always be watching, listening and in tune with Him..  May our Testimony of Friendship and Fellowship in Jesus Christ encourage and inspire each of you.. He See’s you – loves you and has blessings for you too!!

JoBeth has had a hunger to know God from her earliest childhood memories. In her late teens, at a point when she was considering suicide, she had a life changing encounter with the love of God when she asked Jesus into her life to be her Lord and Savior.

JoBeth ministers as an apostolic, strategic and prophetic intercessor with a breakthrough anointing. She learned to pray as an intercessor and to understand the importance of spiritual warfare in overcoming many years of depression. She has personally experienced the power of God that sets captives free and gives us the oil of joy for the spirit of heaviness.  (Isaiah 61:3) She loves to encourage others in knowing God by learning the character and ways of God as he has revealed Himself in His Word. Also, how to find His hope, peace and blessings in the midst of life’s difficulties by learning to pray His Word.

She has been married to her best friend and husband, Russ, for 40 years. For eight and a half years from 1978 – 1985 they served the Lord with Youth With A Mission primarily in Spain and Hawaii. They were 18 years with a church in the Dallas area where JoBeth ministered as an intercessor and also traveled on numerous national and international ministry assignments; twice to Israel. They have raised three children, all married and have seven wonderful grandchildren being raised to know and walk with God. They currently live the Denver area.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 (NKJV)
