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.
A woman names Mercedes came for prayer for cataracts in her eyes. She had been experiencing deteriorating sight for the past year and the doctor had confirmed that she would need an operation. At the time she could see people when they were 20 feet away, but they were not recognizable - she couldn't see faces or features at that distance. We prayed once and then checked. There was no change. We prayed again and this time she could begin to see some basic features in people's faces – the shape of their hair around their face and where their eyes were. We prayed again.
At Four Square church Romulo, an interpreter, asked for prayer for his left eye. He had very bad sight, in fact nearly no sight (he said 0 on a scale of 10). I prayed several time resulting in no change in the condition and no signs of God doing anything. I changed my focus and asked the Holy Spirit to fill him with love. I asked Romulo to take some deep breaths. I prayed again for the eye and now he said that something happened. It went from 0 to 3 on a scale of 10. Romulo told me that his pastor had been praying for him and nothing happened and that he also prayed for himself on a daily basis. This was the first time that anything happened. We thanked God for this and prayed for an increase. Nothing more happened and I told him that we would pray for someone else now and come back to him and pray again later.
A lady came up to me for prayer. There were no interpreters around so I asked her if she spoke English. She said no but she did speak German. She explained that she could not see anything close and was so far sighted that she could not read anything.
