Claudia and I were at the morning Iris Arts Worship with the mamas which was so incredibly beautiful and we were saying goodbye to the mamas. One had her head bowed down in pain. Claudia and I prayed once but she still had some pain so we prayed again and all of her pain went away. She smiled and the beautiful look in her eyes told us that she was then very happy.
We were walking around visiting families and children within the village while on the bush bush outreach and we came across an older gentleman in his 60s who had cataracts. The cataracts had gotten so bad that he wasn’t able to see. We began praying for him and after praying for him twice, he could completely see. He has never been able to read. After praying for him, he would read and was so hungry for the Word! We gave him a Bible and he was beaming and smiling ear to ear. He proudly wrote his name in the Bible and asked us to give him a Bible verse for him to start reading.
While visiting the hospital maternity ward, my prayer partner, Cindy, and translator, Jackson, asked a new mama if we could pray for her and her new baby as well as the many others of her family that were by her bedside. She said that it was not allowed in her Muslim faith. Jackson explained that just because we pray for her in Jesus’ name, it doesn’t changer her faith. She said okay. When I laid my hand on her shoulder and started praying, I said I plead the blood of Jesus over her body. A red light immediately glared in my eyes like a blinding red flashlight. I started crying and told Cindy what was happening and finished my prayer.
We were in the village one day. It was a pleasure to help pray for a woman who’s head pain and arm pain was healed. I also prayed for a woman with stomach pain and through hand motion believed that she was healed but can’t be certain.
During the Friday morning bush outreach, there were about 25 mamas and 25 children of all ages following us from house to house. They told us we had to pray for the mama before we would pray for the others as an honoring action. So we prayed for her sore arm, headaches, and sore feet. Her left arm had what appeared to be a bulging muscle. We prayed and then asked her if she felt better. She said she felt a little better so we prayed again. We prayed not only for her healing, but for God’s power to be revealed. We then asked her if she felt better. She said she was completely better and we could physically see a difference in her arm because the bulge was completely gone.
