Here are some of the incredible testimonies we have received from this year's 2014 Voice of the Apostles conference:
Wednesday morning of Voice of the Apostles, Bill asked for those who have nerve damage to stand up. He then asked for people to pray over those people. I went to pray over the gal next to me and then Bill announced that someone's eye is getting healed of a nerve problem. I had been having a pulsing/throbbing/twitching in my right eye for a couple of weeks but I did not know what it was. All of a sudden, my eye started throbbing again and then I felt a pop and it stopped.
During VOA 2012, I had been having all the signs of MS such as itching, memory loss, excruciating pains in bones, etc. During his session, Randy was asking if anyone needed specific healing so I stood up. Randy and the congregation prayed over me. I was set on fire, sweating profusely and I went down. After a few minutes my body jumped back up to be prayed over again, again set on fire and down. This occurred several times. I never felt anything like it, it was just overpowering. I knew that I was healed. Sure enough I went to the doctor and I was fine. Praise the Lord!
Earlier this year I was diagnosed with Grave's disease, which is an auto immune disorder of the thyroid. My heart rate was 114 and I was put on a medication to lower my heart rate and another medication to suppress the overproduction of thyroid hormone. I was only on the heart medication for about a month, but have been on the thyroid medication for about 5.5 months. During the healing prayer last Thursday at VOA, I felt that God told me to stop taking the medication. I had lab work done on Tuesday, after being off the medication for 6 days, and my labs were normal. My thyroid disease has been healed!
I'm not sure how to even begin this testimony as words cannot even describe what happened to me at VOA. I kept struggling with the call on my life and coming to a point where I tuned Him out when He would try to speak to me. I encountered that love at VOA and I couldn’t stop crying for hours during Heidi Baker’s session. Healing began and continued through the rest of the week as the walls began to break down Monday and Tuesday. Thursday I went to Will Hart’s breakout, not expecting anything outlandish, when the fire fell on me as he preached. I began to shake uncontrollably to the point when he called everyone to get prayer, I could not move. God burned things out of me and filled me up.
The morning service with Claudio, my body began to run in place and I could not stop. As I ran, crying and shaking, from inside my belly, I cried out, "I will go" over and over again. Someone pushed me to get prayer and when Claudio said, "that’s right, run to the nations and preach" I felt my spirit sprint and felt a weight fall on me. Up until then, I would not tell God I would go as I felt like I couldn't due to my lack of discipline of spending time with Him and obeying Him. My life was totally wrecked! Where I once struggled to seek Him, I'm hungrier than ever; where I struggled to read a book, I'm devouring everything I can get my hands on; and where I struggled to pray for people and preach, I have a fire that comes out of me onto them.
After seeing the video testimonies on the last night I began feeling pain and heat and was in faith for a very large cist of 2 years on my wrist to be healed. A girl on the video had the same thing. It stayed the same that night and I received prayer agreement, but when I woke up in the morning the huge calcification was gone and the pain left throughout the day. Praise the Lord I can use my hand normally again! Thank you for everything, we were so strengthened and encouraged for our work overseas.
I'm an AG pastor, and this was my first time at VOA. We knew we had to come, we were hungry! We were there from 8:30 am until midnight every day and got in every prayer line we could. We wanted impartation to bring back to our church. In the last 4 Sundays, we have seen over 100 healings/miracles/ or supernatural happening in people's lives in a church of about 230. From back pain to leg pain, to lowering blood sugar, to I'm now sleeping at night, off meds (after 16 years), and a child with ADHD is now able to focus (C-D grades now A-B grades), etc. So much more!!!
Testimonies from the Kids VOA Program
Our 8 year old son, Zander, attended VOA kids in Orlando a couple of weeks ago. While at VOA kids he had several encounters with the Holy Spirit. After a long worship time, he testified that God had him lay down and then Jesus took him to heaven to walk with him. He also got to see his grandpa who had passed away several months ago, but he said that Grandpa was much younger and looked healthy again. He described what Jesus looked like and what the angels singing sounded like.
There is no doubt that Zander is changed for good. He said that Jesus told him that his mission is not over yet and that he has work for him to do. This week Zander had a very detailed dream and woke up crying because he said he was so joyful because Jesus had taken him to heaven again and showed him signs of things that would come.
We had an amazing year at VOA! Our 9-year-old daughter Ocean was in the Kids program, and she had a vision of heaven the first night, fell out in the Spirit on Thursday night and received the gift of tongues on Friday night! I also received more complete healing for a neck injury on Friday night during the prayer time. Not to mention all the amazing impartation times with Heidi, Randy, Will, etc. What a wonderful week, we are so thankful for the kids’ team and for the amazing people we met. Can't wait for Nashville! :)

Over 30 students gave words of knowledge, many for the first time which saw over 15 healings of 80% or more within the classroom. During activation of the 5-step prayer model we had two students pray for a student with pain from a shoulder injury sustained from playing rugby (he was a professional rugby player) and was still in significant pain following surgery a few months ago. After praying through the 5-steps he was completely healed and pain free. Another student had pain in her back from multiple car accidents and a recent fall against some stairs. The students prayed for her as well and she also was healed of 80% or more from her pain.
Earlier this month, Global Awakening completed a clean water project in the African country of Zimbabwe. It was the second straight year we've completed Humanitarian Aid Projects in the poverty stricken region of Bulawayo.
The purpose of drilling the well was to bring clean water to a community lacking an immediate water resource. We had a surveyor on-site who told us there was a 75% chance of us getting water on site and estimated the water to be about 60 meters down. We started drilling on a cold, windy Saturday. After drilling for only three hours, we hit water. It was only 30 meters down! From 30 meters to 60 meters we had nothing but water. The new well brought a yield of 4,500 liters per hour (1,200 galloons) much more than anticipated! It was amazing to see the appreciation and excited of the community that came out to celebrate.
The introduction to water in this area not only provides clean water but provides jobs in the form of farming. In a country with an unemployment rate of over 60%, the impact of this project impact has been immeasurable.
Last year, our team built a large, 5 bedroom safe house in a rural area where the abuse of young girls is rampant. As a part of this year's project, we returned to the safe house to take supplies to, and check on the pastors and the girls living there. We were happy to find that the house now has running water and a shower. After fellowship with the pastors, we learned that since January, there have been over 50 cases of child abuse in their region, all girls. If it weren't for this safe house, all of these children would be taken into police custody and housed in a prison cell during their trial. Working with the government, the pastors were able take these girls into their house and care. They have been able to take these young girls to a doctor, minister inner healing, and love on them. The pastors have adopted 6 of these girls who are now living with them full time at the safe house and are attending school.
One girl living in the house, now 7 years old was abused by a family member and, according to the doctors report, contracted HIV as a result of the incident. We met this precious girl last year when we were building and had the opportunity to pray for her. When we returned to the house this year, the pastors brought us the doctors report that said she was now HIV negative! Praise God! Another girl who was demonized as a result of her abuse was also set free!
We also had the opportunity to go and minster to the people living in the "garbage dumps" outside of Bulawayo. This poverty stricken area is inhabited by society's throwaways, murderers, and thieves. If an ancestor committed a serious crime, their descendants are considered cursed and unwanted by society. They make their homes out of whatever they can find in the garbage dumps. We were told that even police were afraid to venture into this place. But with the pastor, we drove into the garbage dump with a truck full of speakers and began to worship God. The noise brought people out of their shelters. We started preaching the gospel over the speakers and many were saved and healed! We also distributed our indestructible soccer balls to the kids of the dump. Some of them had never played with a real soccer ball before. It was really incredible to see something so simple bring so much joy and happiness to a child.
Be encouraged! The gospel is being preached, people are being healed, and lives are being changed all over the globe because of you. Thank you for your support and all you do for His Kingdom.
