We were delivering bags of food to single moms and we came upon about 10 rough looking guys lining both sides of the sidewalk smoking pot. So the missionary we were with stops and says, "Hey guys, you want to see something crazy? If anyone has any pain, it is going to get healed.” So this big guy gets up and says he has really bad pain in both his knees and they looked very arthritic. A shorter guy says he ruined his left knee playing soccer. We prayed and God healed them both! Then, he preached the gospel and lead the two and one other to the Lord.
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.
As we went from home to home in the bush bush the next day after the Jesus film was shown, we encountered a big group of mamas and children and even a few men were there too. One of the mamas said we needed to pray and bless her first so we did. We honored her, blessed her and prayed for healing for her arm that was swollen and in pain and her legs. God healed her!
Our team went out for evangelism with some Brazilian believers to the favelas (the slums/poor area) in their church neighborhood. As we walked and ministered to people in the streets, we were welcomed into one home. There were four generations of family living there together.
