The main message was shared by Bro Isaac. He informed most of the members, as the Holy Spirit revealed to him, about their call, many were healed, many names were called out for specific messages or deliverance. He had a diary with names God gave him and the word of knowledge or healing God promised for them. Is it not marvelous how the names of people from various nations like India and Africa were called out. We think it was probably the first time Bro Isaac himself came to know about such names. God’s way are marvelous. Many who were present got instant healing. It was a great blessing! There were messages for even those who could not come that day. We got many calls from members who were touched! We expect to hear many testimonies in coming weeks from those who are healed or touched.
We just could not go out of the Hall even after closing prayer as the Holy Spirit was moving in a mighty way. Some stayed back up to 10:30 pm discussing and praying for one another. Finally we could also pray for Bro Isaac and his mother. The Holy Spirit led us to pray that the whole family, including children and grandchildren, be used by God in a mighty way and Bro Isaac be used to save, heal and delver millions, through him and those those who come to Lord through him! We believe that it was a prophetic prayer.

Two days ago, DJ and I were invited to a Pakistani Muslim home to pray for the mother of one of my students. My student had told me that she has arthritic pain in both knees, plus restrictions in the arteries connected to her heart that result in her getting fatigued very easily.
As soon as we walked into the room, DJ felt a pain in a knee, so we decided to pray for this first. After praying several times for about 45 minutes and asking if she felt any improvement, she reported perhaps a 40%-50% improvement in that knee. She reported “heat” in that area. Although the pain did not disappear there was a new strength in that knee, so she could get up and walk without assistance. DJ had also received a word of knowledge about a shoulder, so we prayed for that, and there was a complete healing. (She had had problems in that shoulder for over two years.) Another word of knowledge about a headache also resulted in a complete healing for that condition. We also prayed for her heart – not only for her physical heart, but also for her spiritual heart condition. She later admitted that for a long time she had felt fear, aimlessness and hopelessness.
During this time, a family friend, a younger woman, entered the home. She sat nearby, silently watching us pray and minister to my student’s mother. At one point, I began to feel a pain in the fingers of my right hand – so I turned to her and asked if she had a similar pain. Astonished, she said yes, and eagerly allowed us to pray for her. This pain instantly vanished! She then requested prayer for her knees and elbows – and the pain in those joints also instantly left. She was so grateful! (I was also hugely encouraged, because this was the first time that I’ve been able to give a physical word of knowledge!)
DJ and I later noted to ourselves how much “easier” it was for the younger woman to be healed than my student’s mother. We believe that the mother’s symptoms may have much deeper (demonic) roots – but we believe that as she opens herself up to the Healer, these conditions also must bow to Him.

In short, a Muslim family from Pakistan in their desperation had turned on several occasions to occult practices and Islamic 'folk healers' for their ailing mother who needed healing. First up, a self-proclaimed Islamic healer who claims to have 'more power than anyone in this country' - one of the most arrogant claims I've ever heard. He even made the statement that "God is in heaven, but I am on the earth". After he met with the mother and performed his 'rituals', NOTHING happened. We know the devil has a measure of power, but we had been praying that he would come up empty and sure enough - no healing, no miracle - nothing.
Next up was two of us last night - Sojourner and myself. What happened? I'll let him tell the story. Let's just say that we were able to do what "mr. all-powerful Islamic healer" couldn't! We give all the Glory to Jesus, apart from whom we can do nothing.
