Here is the report I received from some of the women on our team who were out ministering the other night.
Last night, we were treasure hunting in City Center. L. saw a Muslim lady in a full black abaya and felt God motivate her to talk to her. We almost didn?t even go because it was right in the middle of a busy area and she looked very conservative.
The lady was with another older lady and two small boys. We walked by once and after we passed, I got a Word of Knowledge for headaches but I wasn?t sure if it was for her or for this other lady that we'd been eyeing.
L. approached them (speaking in Arabic) and sure enough, the younger lady suffered from headaches. She did not have one right then but was very open and let L. pray. Immediately after she finished, the other lady (who turned out to be the first woman?s mother) eagerly
asked if we could pray for her shoulder. L. did so and God instantly healed it. At this point she opened up her wallet to show us that it was full of Jesus pictures and a Jesus keychain.
I suddenly felt a prophetic word coming and began to prophesy over the first lady's boys. I got several words about their future destiny and the mother was on the verge of tears. Then, I saw some problems that the older boy had been having at school and the reason why this was happening. I was able to speak comfort to his mother and even though he looked only about six or seven, his face lit up as he heard that God saw him as someone who was very intelligent and creative. The mother confirmed some of the words, telling us that he was having trouble behaving at school and that the day before, the teacher and spoken to her about his creativity. It was like He was confirming His promises about their future by giving accurate words about their present so that they would know that it was real.
God also gave me words of encouragement and promise for the mother. At the end, the mother told us her own testimony about the pictures of Jesus. Apparently, years ago, some Filipino ladies had prayed for her. Afterwards, she had a visitation in which Jesus and Mary came to her and immediately all the pain that she had all over her entire body had left. When we heard this, we asked if they would like to have a relationship with Jesus and after explaining, both women eagerly prayed the sinner?s prayer and asked Jesus into their lives.
Aside from God's awesomeness, another thing about the appointment that really encouraged me was that I have always been a bit worried about not following up with people. God showed me that *He* follows up. A seed that had been planted years before was now ready to be harvested and once He starts something, His Word does not return back empty. Amen!!!
