    Psalm 21
    5 Through the victories you gave, his glory is great;

    Your cassette tapes (boy are we old), videos and written materials have been used by me and many others in this area and around the world. As a matter of fact I just finished a series in Lent using your teachings from James (Edmonton) and another on Spiritual Warfare from Ephesians.

    You are loved here in Minnesota by many more than you may know 🙂

    Knowing you has changed my life from the inside out! Not just for the transformation principles you teach but how you model it on every level of your life. Watching you love and show grace in the most stressful of situations to all people has had a forever impact on me. You are consistently generous to give back financially, relationally, physically with your time and energy and spiritually with your prayers and discernment. The way you father your family, and adopted sons and daughters is so beautiful to watch. And your drive for life inspires me to be even more passionate for the Kingdom of God alongside you. Your generosity, passion, love and most of all your Fathering have made a forever impact on me. Thank you. I love you, Karissa

My life is forever changed learning from and interpreting for you. May His love continue to be your source, blessing and strengthening your spirit, body and soul!

    SARA FRAHM says:

    I remember the first time I heard you speak in Los Angeles. I believe it was 1995, and I was introduced to the movement of identificational repentance. It was wonderful, and I believe Alice Patterson repented as well as a Japanese woman (or man?) to the Koreans. Many others followed. I soon had my own experience to repent in Mexico for the Mexican-American War. I remember the comment, “why don’t other Americans come and repent like this lady has done?” The wounds persist.
    I spoke on a panel about Freemasonry in Puebla, Mexico. The fellow next to me said, “bravo!” I was surprised and little did I know, we would become friends and he would translate my book into Spanish. I am thankful to hear of your energy and continued zeal for God’s Kingdom. May you live to accomplish all that He has planned for you! Bendiciones, de su hermana tejana.

    Happy Birthday Ed! When I hear your name I think only of your smiling face and positive and encouraging words. It is the supernatural joy of the Lord and your personal knowledge of His goodness and your unwavering belief that His word and promises are true and are available to every believer, today, that shines through you. You are an inspiration to so many more than you know and it is a privilege to be connected with your ministry. Thank you for never giving up and for being an amazing example of strength through humility. I pray that abundant blessings would be released over you and your family and ministry to overflowing and that every cent donated would multiply!

    One of the things I appreciate most of you is the way you teach how to love and be a blessing to your family. You have been an example in that and the Lord has honored you with 4 wonderful daughters who have followed the Lord and are a blessing to all those around you. The Lord also gave you with a beautiful loving wife. Bill and I enjoyed working with you and your team for the way you all the Lord.

    Happy Birthday, Ed! You are such an example to me as someone who knows God intimately. The first time I saw you in Honolulu your whole family was on stage, including the little ones, stomping on the devil, doing warfare! No retirement in the Kingdom…I “retired” last May from a Christian preschool and 4 days later went to my new assignment for the Lord. This summer I will launch both my children into ministry, one in Australia and one in Texas…look out, devil, here they come! May the Lord continue to bless you and your family as you teach us to be life and world transformers!

  46. Brenda Virtue
    Brenda Virtue says:

    God bless your birthday Ed. I’m just 3 years behind you, and suddenly the Lord has me running to be Minister of Parliament in my home region in Canada. I went to Argentina with you & about 500 others in about 1998 where I was in the Mar Del Plata team. I remember the Argentina kisses of the whole town & the Argentine evangelists saying, “Hold out your hands. We’re going to pray & God is going to give you something!” What the Lord gave me was a Giant Egg! When I returned to Sacramento, that egg cracked open & spilt onto my pastor a bit when he asked me to pray for him. But that egg has yet to fully manifest! Here in Canada we are on the cusp of the greatest revival ever, & I know that Argentine Anointing will play a crucial role. I am in a jail ministry here & remember the powerful revival that broke out in the Argentine prisons. I fully expect the Lord to do the same here & blow away all the plans of the enemy. Thanks so much for your dedicated service that changed & is still changing my life! God bless you with MAS FUEGO EL SENOR!

    Catherine Tawney says:

    Happy Birthday to you, Ed! I am so thankful for you and your wife. We had the honor of sitting in meetings with you both at Coast Christian Fellowship in Torrance. I remember feeling like you were my grandparents in God. You have greatly impacted my life and created a desire in me to see cities transformed. That will never leave me! Thank you for being real. You remind me of a strong, steady train propelled with love and power! I pray that you are richly blessed this year and that you would experience the goodness of God beyond your wildest imagination!

    You are a blessing to me and my family. Through you, by God, we are in alignment with God and have peace in our hearts. You saw me in Bergen, out of many, in 2014. You stopped in the crowd, looked me in the eyes and gave me some uplifting words. Since then I have enjoyed being in your circles, close to you. Your faithfulness to Jesus and your truthfulness to life, is what I like the most about you. Your love for people and your believe in me is keeping me close to you. I wish you the best birthday ever.

    Kevin Mitchell says:

    Happy Birthday Papa Ed! I wonder if growing up you ever realized that you would be a father to so many spiritual kids across the world? Probably not but I think the Lord will continue to add arrows to your quiver as you continue to touch, bless and transform so many lives. Lori and I are profoundly thankful to be part of the family and call you our spiritual father. You have blessed us in more ways than I can count but I will say that you have encouraged and empowered both of us to be more of all called us to be than ever before. You have transformed us and our family into an Ekklesia and given us a heart to reach the world with a lifestyle of prayer evangelism. With so many sons and daughters it amazes me how you manage to give us your personal attention and let us know in tangible ways that you love us and care for us. In that, I know you are reflecting the image of our heavenly father who counts even the hairs on our heads. We thank God for you and the blessing you are to our lives and our family. May the Lord continue to bless you and continue to take you to those heights and hills you still look to conquer and take for the Kingdom. Have a wonderful 74th – may this be the best year yet for you and the entire Silvoso family!

    Dearest Ed – there are at least 74 reasons to give you for the impact and encouragement that you give those you come into contact with you.

That is what you do as you speak hope, faith and encouragement to the people who have the privilege to call you friend, mentor, advisor and family.Happy happy birthday.

Your perseverance and heart for God and the mission to reach all for the kingdom inspires me to keep reaching out. Thank you for showing us how to reconcile all relationships, cease from judgement of others and church groups, and to bring JESUS to the forefront. Your love for Ruth and your family involvement in the ministry is an awesome example of how to live as believers, not act as one. May God bless you abundantly with the desire of your heart to see nations transformed. Being around the ministry of Transform Our World, brings me hope in every situation.

    Dear Ed

    Hello from Singapore!
    I first heard you share at the Kingdom Invasion 2018.

    I was tremendously impacted
    I have been in church for many years but in my 38 years, it was the first time I heard someone so clearly articulate how one could be a believer and a practical impact to the marketplace.

    When you and your Wife did the afternoon session and prayed over us, I felt such a warmth
    It was a family time where Mom and Dad prayed and imparted over us.

    We love you.
    Your ministry is not just seen in those who show or say appreciation to you but I know that when you go to heaven, you will then truly know your impact.

    I pray God’s richest blessings over your family.

    Happy Birthday, Ed! The Lord bless you a thousand times for the ways you have lavished love on Him in your faithful service! Your constant love for Christ, love for the nations, for the individual, for the lost, for the saved, for the wounded, and for the strays…..it is an example to us all! Your message of hope, constant encouragement to persevere in faith and in sharing the love of Christ in the marketplace is SO needed in the body of Christ, and a GREAT blessing to us all! I give all the glory to God! He is the author and perfecter of your faith, the One who has gifted you to serve Him, the One to whom all the glory is given! He has counted you worthy of your calling, He has given you the gifts that accompany those who fear the Lord, and He has multiplied the seeds sewn through you in ways that He alone knows and He alone receives the glory! I will never forget the Light the Nations conference. Who knows what the Lord has accomplished through that alone! The Lord bless you and keep you, continue to shine His face upon you, lift up His countenance on you, and give you His peace.

    I’ve only spoken with you for a quick second at the KBA conference last year. But this is what I noticed… You have a calming, humble presence…. Yet you carry an authority that is unrefutable. God trusts you. You are a king in his kingdom…a lion! Like Aslan, you have such a sweetness and love that oozes from your eyes, yet you have the authority to take down strongholds and to fight and protect the bride of yeshua. He is so proud of having you as a son! Being in your presence instantly brings a feeling a safety to me. I am so excited to have met you and look forward to spending eternity with you! But I selfishly hope yahweh gives you many more years with us on this side of his return. Happy birthday Ed!

  84. Betsy Jones
    Betsy Jones says:

    Happy Birthday Ed! This morning I read what you wrote about needing ‘clean hands’ to influence our neighbors for Christ and immediately thought of a neighbor who has been isolated within our community for years because of problems in his family. Instead of reaching out to him with the love of Christ we had pushed him away out of fear. Conviction came into my heart because I had been a police officer during the years of his problems and it was on my advice that the Christians of the neighborhood reacted to him with hostility instead of Christ’s love. Since then, I have become a Christian, heard your neighborhood story, and have prayer walked our street. I always prayed for him when I walked by, but never had the courage to go talk to him because of the burden of guilt I felt. But this morning, I knew to have ‘clean hands’ I needed to ask his forgiveness for how my actions hurt him. He received it very well and now there is a bridge. Thank you for your faithfulness and for openly sharing your own struggles. May God richly bless you and keep you in His way.

  85. Greg Pagh

    These last years have been full of iconic celebrations with wedding anniversaries etc. And the celebrations will continue with the 30 years anniversary of the Global Conference next year. It keeps getting better and that is what marks you above the rest – you epitomize the truth of a believer going from Glory to Glory better than anyone I know! I constantly receive impartations from you on that with every Argentinian fatherly hug and your powerful words of affirmation. I honor you so much and bless you today as you celebrate in Norway.

    Ed, Happy Birthday! I pray each affirmation you receive from others through this tribute seeps into your soul & spirit to revitalize and push you on towards your next mountain. Its hard to narrow down the praise. But here goes! I love your ability to see others according to the Spirit. I admire the way you lift-up and support those who serve alongside you. I stand in awe of your tireless energy and the way you push yourself to serve God. I enjoy your creativity and active imagination. I see the Trinity passing a wonderful Brag Book around the throne as they watch you walk out this life on earth! Jesus is the most in awe, as He knows what it takes to be on the earth. May the affirmation of Heaven tickle your ears more than all other praise and spur you on. Much love always

  128. David Ayer
    David Ayer says:

    It would difficult to describe the affect you have had in my life though we have never met. I was a brand new Christian attending a very conservative Pentecostal church that taught a very narrow Gospel that excluded most everyone. Then walking though a Bible bookstore a title caught my eye and I felt the Spirit of the Lord tell me to by it. “That None Should Perish” was the first Christian book I ever read outside of the Bible and it changed my life. I literally said, “I need to know what this man knows.” Since then I have received two Masters Degrees and am working on a doctorate but the reason was what you planted in my heart in that book. With all that said I just want to say, Happy Birthday. You still make me dream of a revival that goes past creeds and organizations to destroy barriers and truly united the Church. Thank you for serving The King. I have never been the same because you did.

  129. Tad and Treva Tankard

    Thank you for sharing your contagious joy and confidence in Jesus Christ, our LORD and Savior!!

    When I brought my teenaged son Matt to a TOW conference in San Jose, California ( two years ago, I think), he was impressed with the genuineness of all who ministered. He is soft-spoken and extremely low-key. He expresses feelings quite subtlety. He said, with a determined force of amazement, “ This is too REAL.”
    In other words, the Christians were connecting with reality and with other people in a huge way, this time. He is a believer. He just was unaware that some brothers and sisters were so connected BOTH with God and with people.

    Keep it up!!

    I think God has a smile on His face right now!!

    Blessings and Happy Birthday!!

    Dear Ed, Yuk Lynn and I miss you, Ruth, and the family very much. It’s amazing to see how many spiritual children you have and we feel really blessed to be included. More importantly, we are ever so grateful for all that you have invested in us over the years. Its hard to believe that more than 13 years have passed since the first time we met at the transformation conference in 2006 in NY. A friend once said that the message of transforming nations is one of, if not the most important of our day. You have showed us that discipling nations is not only possible but something we all can reach for because all Father needs is our “yes”. Bless you on this, your 74th birthday. We pray the Lord will continue to refresh, renew, re-energize & rejuvenate you and Ruth that you will continue to increase unto the fullness that is your birthright. With fondness & gratitude, Roy & Yuk Lynn

    Numbers Chapter 6 (24:26)

    Nancy McHarness says:

    Happy Birthday Ed!
    Thank you for hearing the heart of the Lord for the nations and writing the books that have been the inspiration for our community transformation efforts. Through your encouragement of the power of ONE walking in obedience to the co-mission Jesus gave his disciples, we as a husband and wife made the choice to be obedient. Through the Luke 10 approach, Partners for Schools NPO was birthed in 2010 and the clarion call to action given through BeTheOneToday.org in 2013. Now hundreds of adults and youth have been positively impacted through community mentoring partnerships with schools. As these partnerships grow, we are filled with joy at graciousness plan of God for relational redemption and reconciliation.
    Warm Regards,
    Denny & Nancy McHarness

    Gracias por ser el padre espiritual que nunca tuve, el hermano mayor que siempre necesite y el amigo incondicional en quien confiar.
    Que Dios siga llenándote de su Espiritu Santo una y otra vez, que te siga dando mayor revelacion y unción y que cumpla su perfecto y glorioso propósito en tu vida, en cada uno de los que tenemos el privilegio de servirte y en todo el movimiento en el mundo entero.
