From that day forward Jonathan was completely healed. That first encounter with the living God made him understand that Jesus is very real and full of unconditional love.
It was a couple of years later at the age of nineteen he surrendered his life to the Lord as he had another visitation of the power and love in his home in Sweden. The calling of God became more and more real to him after his conversion to the point he quit his employment and went to a one year full time Bible school Götabro Bible school and then another 2 years at Word of Life Bible School. It was during this time that while praying, he heard the Lord speak to him about going to the United States. That same year, through a series of divine appointments, he came in contact with Pastor Rune Brannström who invited Jonatan to join him in San Antonio, Texas.
In 2002 he had a life changing experience with the Love of the Father. A three day encounter when God the Father visited him in his home on the southside of San Antonio. Jonatan explains it as if it was liquid love being poured on him and in him until he was fully immersed.
Since coming to minister in San Antonio, Jonatan has started two different food distributions in the city with the first outreach on the southside. Then in 2003, Jonatan had a vision where he saw and felt the love of the Father towards a housing project named Cassiano Homes. He saw the fatherless, the prostitutes and the single moms who were crying out for help. God was asking Jonatan to go with His love to these people. In this vision he got instructions to get food from Daily Bread Ministries and distribute it as he had done in his earlier ministry on the south side. As a result of Jonatan’s obedience to that vision, God started working mighty miracles in Cassiano Homes by touching those in need of His love.
In 2007 Jonatan turned over the ministries he initiated to some faithful men and women. Now Jonatan, his wife Monika and two children resides in Gothenburg, Sweden. Jonatan is a part of the spiritual leadership in Billdals Pingstkyrkan ( A Swedish pentecostal church) in Sweden where they continues to minister The Love of the Father.
