"In God's hands, the object of our greatest pain becomes the source of our greatest blessing!" -Corrie Ten Boom

Acueducto is a non-profit Christian association dedicated to promoting the spiritual and emotional growth of believers through the integration of the person and biblical principles. Acueducto also aims to support and offer resources to men and women in Spain and further afield who are using 'Formational Prayer' as a means of bringing the healing presence of Jesus Christ to emotionally broken people.

Aqueducto is a branch of Healing Care Ministries ( and follows the same working principles and concepts. Today, more than 4,000 caregivers (professional and lay) from 17 countries have been trained to position emotionally wounded people so that they can receive healing, freedom and transformation through the different protocols of 'transformative prayer'.

How was it founded?

In 2013 Jonathan and Gemma decided to travel from Spain to Bolivia to do a month of marriage counseling with Gemma's spiritual parents. They felt that something was not right in their marriage, but they were not completely aware of the crisis in which they found themselves, both as a couple and on a personal level.

It was there that the Holy Spirit began to reveal to them wounds and traumas that they had experienced in their past (some of which they were unaware) and the impact that this was having on their present relationship.

It was also there that God showed them that it was time to make a change of course in their work and ministry and where they felt that God was speaking to them about the need to be trained in inner healing/spiritual accompaniment in order to bring freedom to many believers who were not experiencing it; people who are suffering alone and in silence due to guilt, shame or fear of being rejected. ​

After three years of intense training and introspective work with Healing Care Ministries in Ashland, Ohio, they returned to Spain to begin working with missionaries, church leadership, and believers from different denominations through Terry Wardle's model of "Formational Prayer".

​In 2020, the Acueducto Religious Association was born, formed by a board of five people and a work team of ten.


We truly give glory to God because we see how he has not let go of our hand at any time in our lives. Being able to see him accompanying us and crying with us in the midst of our suffering, darkness and loneliness has transformed our lives.

We want to honor Norman and Gwen Bowman. They are the initiators of the Formational Prayer model in Spain along with their team, the translators of the  material into Spanish. Thank you Norman and Gwen for starting us on this road!
