another "drive by" healing - indian man's hand

as we were driving past a man with a bandaged hand, I stopped the car and asked him to come over. he came up to my window. he'd had surgery on his hand. I asked if I could pray for him to be healed. he agreed. we prayed while sitting in our car and then I asked him to check it out. he began moving it not expecting there to be a difference BUT then his face changed. he realized that in fact God had done something. It just kept getting better and as we drove away he was still checking it out amazed at what God had done.

he was a Christian. it was a fun "drive by" healing!

we see 5 healings amongst muslims

tonight we went out to see the Kingdom come. it started a bit slow, but then we met a group of Egyptian muslims and a word of knowledge came about a back problem. One of them had the problem and let us pray. He was healed. Next another word came for a left foot problem - my friend prayed for the same man and his foot was healed. Then he asked for prayer for his other foot - it was healed. We got to pray for another man's back and a ganglion cyst on his wrist. He would have to see how his back was because it wasn't hurting, and the pain left the ganglion cyst when he touched it, but it was still there so I didn't consider it a healing. I instructed him how he could pray the Lord prayer in Arabic and ask for "God's will to be done in his wrist AS IT IS in heaven". Finally, we got to pray for the first guy's chronic headache (from an injury). After praying several times, it was healed.

To top off the evening, I got a word of knowledge for another muslim guy from Bangladesh for a neck problem. He was healed after we prayed.

It was so much fun just to see God destroy the pain in muslim mens' bodies and to then invite them to some healing services that will be held near their homes this weekend. We pray that what they saw and experienced will encourage them to come and see even more AND to meet the healer, Jesus, personally too!

Social Media Miracles - Skype and FB healings

social media is proving to be more than I thought. from time to time, we have been seeing people get prayed for over Skype or over a FB chat and they are healed. Last night it got a bit crazy. While Skyping with a friend (who interestingly was logged into another one of our friend's Skype accounts??), I got a word of knowledge for neck pain, back left side. Both the husband and wife had the problem (also checked with another friend who I'd been Skyping with too), and yet the husband was coming home at that very time. We prayed that when he walked in the house he would be healed. Sure enough, a few minutes later he walks in their house completely healed. Not only a word of knowledge, not only via Skype, but also he wasn't even present!

After that I went after another friend's headache (also over Skype). It began to subside and was better after we prayed (to be honest, I wasn't too happy about that - headaches are illegal squatters in a headache-free Kingdom).

Next it was going after some stuff on Facebook - one friend saw the post about the Skype neck healing and asked for prayer. we went after his condition. still waiting to hear what happened as he somehow got offline. we also teamed up with people in 3 different countries (which is a challenge on FB) to go after breast cancer. I had one Brazilian friend in Lebanon who'd been healed of breast cancer, praying for the friend in the U.S. It was just one crazy time. Again, we will have to wait and see what has happened.

Social Media, whatever else one wants to say, is getting redeemed at least in terms of becoming a place for more and more healings.
