AND THE LAME SHALL WALK!
We had an amazing 150+ people show up under our tree in Namara today, with over half being adults!
That is a switch, since our biggest crowd is usually the children.
After teaching on God’s Creation, I gave my testimony on how Jesus raised Crispo from the dead after he was bitten and killed by a Black Mamba snake.
Then I felt prompted by the Holy Spirit to pray for the sick.
About 10 came forward with minor illnesses. Then I was taken to a young woman who had been crippled last year after falling into an open water well.
She fell about 30 feet, suffering compound fractures in both ankles. Her feet were not set right and faced outward.
It’s amazing she survived the accident as most with compound fractures die from infection. She could hobble with a simple long pole that she used for a crutch.
We knelt on the ground, and listened as she repeated the sinner’s prayer.
We then laid hands on her legs and commanded in Jesus name for the bones to straighten and the muscles to strengthen.
Pastor Jose and I lifted her to her feet and she stood with no help. Her feet were only slightly straighter, but she said her legs felt stronger.
When we told her to walk, she said she was scared of falling.
We told her Jesus had healed her and she needed to step out in faith. I took her by her hand and she took her first step.
Together, we walked hand in hand around the entire crowd and then I told her to dance. SHE DID!!!!!
She danced a jig in place, as we were surrounded by the crowd. A smile broke out on her face and she began to laugh!
Everyone was singing and shouting, so it got a bit wild!
I was praying for some other women when Don said “Look at that!” We spotted her walking at a fairly good pace down the road with no assistance.
The locals were amazed and told us she had not been able to stand alone or walk without her crutch, cause she would fall over.
It was a great faith builder for those who saw this wonderful miracle.
Pastor Jose quickly gave a salvation message an altar call.
35 RECEIVED CHRIST!!!!
Three teenage boys came forward and stood alone before this ever growing crowd.
Their action sparked courage in many others, who pushed their way through the crowd to receive Jesus into their hearts.
Most were children ages 6 to 14, as many adults still had doubts.
As Jesus said, let the little children come unto me. They are the GOOD GROUND who see and believe!
My entire team can’t wait to go back next week to see what else the Holy Spirit may do with this new crowd of believers.
