On September 8, 2006 a burden of heaviness fell upon Elder Collins to shepherd souls for the kingdom of God. October 11, 2006 he was called on by God to do a great work for him. God kept him up throughout the night and gave him a vision and a word which came from I Timothy 1:18 verse. While praying for clarity and specific direction from God, he humbly expressed the calling to his pastor, and what God had directed him to do. With his pastor’s blessing, Elder Collins was aware of the enormous task set before him. He also knew that God, who had called him to this assignment, would grant him the strength needed to carry out his purpose and plan. On October 18, 2006 under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, International Healing and Deliverance Center held its first Bible Study at Quality Inn in Bradley, IL, later in the year, on January 7, 2007, IHDC had its very first Praise and Worship service, where God’s people experienced the presence of God’s anointed lives and were transformed unto the glory of God.
