A Healing at Work

By | Testimonies, Testimonies | No Comments

I care for an elderly woman at my work who told me that every morning she woke up with shooting pain in her arm and side, and she was unable to lift her arm up. At about 4am she asked me to rub pain reliever on her. When I asked, she eagerly gave me permission to pray for her. I prayed a short prayer and she immediately felt better!

“Do you want me to rub the cream on now, or do you want me to pray for you again?”

“Both!” she answered.

So I prayed for her again after I rubbed the cream on her, then told her, “I believe you’re going to have a good update for me in the morning.” Two hours later at 6am I checked on her again. She motioned for me to come sit by her on the bed, and she began to wave her arm over her head! She had no pain at all, and full range of motion in her arm. She was very excited about what God had done for her. So was I!

Carpel Tunnel Healed

By | Testimonies, Testimonies | No Comments

When she came into the food pantry on Nov. 10, 2016, Shirley Conway had a brace on her arm for the carpel tunnel she had been suffering from for two years. As Wilma Lou and Tamara prayed for her, Wilma Lou felt heat in her hand where she was touching her brace.  Wilma Lou asked her after the prayer, “Do you think you ought to take that brace off?”

“Yeah, that’s what I was thinking!” she replied.

She took it off, and while they watched, the swelling went down!

Shirley lifted her arm up and said, “No pain, no pain!” She picked up a book with that hand, something she had been unable to do, and was very excited. She put the book over her face and cried with joy. “I’m healed, Praise God, I’m healed!”

That was one of five healings they saw that day.

I Want To Walk Out of Here

By | Testimonies, Testimonies | No Comments

Bruce and I used to party together as teenagers, but we had gone our separate ways. I got word that he was dying. The family told me, “Come and say goodbye.” Bruce was on machines to force him to breathe. By the time I arrived, they had taken the tubes out of his throat and he was on a mask. My friend from high school was barely able to talk.

I asked him, “What is it that you want?”
“I want to walk out of here.”
“Mind if I pray for you?”
“Okay.”

I spoke to his lungs and his heart and asked God to release new lungs and a new heart from heaven. It didn’t seem like much happened while I was there, but three days later they released him! He went to a rehab center, he is breathing without oxygen, and his heart is recovering well.

Thank You, Jesus!

Youth See Healings & Salvations in South Africa

By | Testimonies | No Comments

George Stowers and I led a team of seven youth and young adults to South Africa, the youngest only thirteen. The first evening some of the team ate at a Nando’s restaurant, where they prayed for an employee with back pain, and she was healed. Another one of our youth then got a word of knowledge that someone had a burn on their hand. The waitress said, “I know who that is!” She went to the back and returned with a cook who had just burned his hand that day. Jesus healed him, too. About that time the restaurant closed for the evening, and all 16-18 employees stopped what they were doing, lined up in front of our team and asked for prayer! God did a lot of amazing things there.

We ministered at a public school, and stood before the whole assembly of about 800 students. The school was experiencing a number of behavioral problems including substance abuse. We led a worship song, gave testimonies, then shared on the Father’s love. When we bowed to pray, some of them with tears in their eyes, one of our team members who was stationed on a second floor balcony said about 600 of them indicated they gave their lives to Jesus. When we closed the chapel time, the students fairly mobbed our team.

At a youth conference in Johannesburg George got the local youth to pray for the people, and a number were healed. A 16 year old girl was healed of sharp pain in her hip, and her eyes were significantly improved so that she could see much better without her glasses, and began to cry when she realized what happened. A man’s back and legs were healed, and after the service ran up and down the sidewalk to show us what he could do (in a suit, in downtown Johannesburg). A number of others were healed. When the local pastor closed the service, he said, “You have no idea what you have done tonight. Our church will never be the same. You came with a simple gospel message, but with power.”

Afterward we went to the home of a believing wife and her husband. He was quite shocked to hear the stories, and commented, “Are you guys for real?” They asked us to pray for them, so we began with him. Two of the youth prayed for his ankles, which were in pain; he stood up, walked around, and said, “Well, I hate to admit it, but it does feel better.” After another prayer the pain went to zero. He couldn’t keep a smile off his face, and began pulling his kids and others up for prayer. The next was a friend or house servant, and her legs got healed. Several other healings happened, so that by the end of it, the unbelieving dad prayed for us, a very heart-felt prayer for several minutes, in his native Tswana. Some of us got tears in our eyes. Something amazing had happened to this man, and he hugged each one of us before we left. – Farley Lewis

Eye & Ears Healed

“The infected eye will have to be removed.”

I am a Home Health nurse; in early July of 2016, Martha (not her real name) gave me this doctor’s report. An elderly patient of mine who had a number of health issues, her right eye had been blind for years. Now it was infected, and the doctor said it needed to be removed. I prayed for her, commanding the infection to go. Two weeks later, when I came to see her, she smiled and said, “Guess what? The infection is gone, and the doctor said I get to keep my eye!”

“Can you see out of it now?” I asked.

“No, but I’m okay with that.” I wasn’t okay with it, and told her and the others with us that we were going to reach up into heaven and get a brand new eyeball for her. I was serious, but it struck us all as funny, and the laughter seemed to increase our faith and joy. I shared with them how I had prayed for a woman with bad knees a week prior to this, reached up into heaven and got two new knees for her. The woman had been completely healed. Now Martha said, “Do you mind praying for my knee? I fell last week, its swollen and in a lot of pain.”

When I got done praying, she lifted her knee and said, “Whoa, it really feels better!” Twenty minutes later, her knee was still very warm and almost completely pain-free. We prayed again, this time for a new eyeball, one that could see. Later, her sister said, “Martha, your eyeball is getting bigger!” (According to them, it had shrunk from the infection). Her daughter also said, “Mamma, your eye IS getting bigger! And its whiter!” She still can’t see out of it, but I believe that is coming!

Recently my husband Mike and I were at Wal-Mart when I felt impressed to talk to the young woman in line in front of us. “Is there anything I can pray with you about?”

After talking with her, she told us, “I got an infection in my ear as a child, and ever since I haven’t been able to hear well out of it.” I prayed for her as we stood in line, then whistled softly to see if she could hear out of the ear. She looked surprised and said, “I heard that!”

We prayed again, then I whispered very softly, from about two feet away, “I love you.”

“I heard that!” God had healed her ear.

I shared that story with another patient of mine, and to my surprise she said, “I’m 80% deaf in my left ear.” I prayed for it, and she said, “My ear just opened! It always sounds like its clogged, stuffed with something, but now it really is better! It’s like you just took an ear plug out!” -Wanda Osteen, July 2016

Dead Boy Raised

By | Testimonies | No Comments

Here in Mozambique, we send out teams house to house in groups of four or five during the day and then show the Jesus film at night. During this particular outreach, one of the groups came across a blind lady—who was instantly healed after a simple prayer in Jesus’ name. After this, one of the groups saw two ladies in distress.  They asked what had happened, and they said their friend’s son had just passed away—a nine year old boy named Ahmade who, they were told, died of cerebral malaria. He had been dead for three hours when they came across a stiff body that the family was wrapping up for burial.  They said they were sorry for their loss, but asked if they could pray for the child. The family agreed. After an hour and ten minutes, the child opened his eyes and came back from the dead! When he saw his son awakened, the father ripped off his hat, dropped to his knees, and said, “Jesus is the true and living God, and I will serve him!” His whole household as well as many neighbors got born again. – Kenny Elder, summer, 2016
