“I’ve had 2 major abdominal surgeries back to back. Started May 11th 2012 ended May 13th Mother’s day. Discharged from the hospital on May 19th. On May the 22nd I believed I was a goner. My health had turned for the worst. I remember lying in bed and the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said “Pray over yourself Lay hands on yourself for healing” I obeyed and I must say the next morning I felt alive again not weak and feeble I started praying for a Higher Calling of God. I came across your website that has really great information. I am a beginner and have picked up some great information that I printed from your site. I will start here and continue on one day at a time. Thanks for being here when I needed you.”

Prayed For Two Women

May 27, 2012

One woman came in for food, a single mother with a 3 year old and one on the way. She was staying in a B&B and had no family members she was in contact with, for various reasosns. She used to attend church but had fallen away. We prayed for her and our supervisor told her “I believe God is saying to you “Make Me your Rock””. I reminded her of the wisdom of the man who built his house upon the rock, compared with the foolish one who built his house on sand. rock foundation

As she left I gave her a Luke’s Gospel as she had mislaid her own Bible due to moving around recently.

The other woman had lots of healed horizontal scars on her left arm and lots more on her neck where she clearly had been cutting herself with a blade of some kind. She said she gave up drugs 4 years ago, but now used alcohol instead and frequently got hammered. She had no faith, but agreed we could pray with her. Before she left I gave her a booklet “The Meaning Of Easter”.

The next person in was a 17 year old girl. She said she was suffering from panic attacks and hated enclosed spaces. She also suffered “sociophobia” whereby she hated meeting people, especially for the first time. We said she seemed to be managing OK with us. She replied she was keeping going by texting her friend for support while she sat there waiting for her food. One of her aunts was a JW and she had pushed the Bible at her. As a result she wasn’t interested in talking about God or prayer. Interestingly, as she left she said she might come back for a social visit.

God said “Go to the prison”………

May 20, 2012

Before going out to share Jesus I asked the Lord for any leadings. He said “the prison… there will be a man standing there….listen to him.” prison building

We met up and I shared with the team. There was only three of us, so we went together towards the prison. We walked round it and on the third side there was a man standing there opposite the prison wall. I said to the others “walk on and I’ll catch you up”. I started chatting to the guy, who said he was waiting for an appointment at 11.30 in the building opposite the prison. He said “are you a counsellor?” I said “no”. He saw my badge and said: “are you an evangelist?” I said I was and we chatted about God, church and Jesus. He told me he was suffering from shingles and had suffered since 2003. He confirmed he was feeling the pain as we talked, in his chest and arm. I shared about Jesus healing people and offered to pray for his shingles. He said OK so I laid hands on his chest and arm and prayed. I then asked him for feedback and he said there a slight reduction in the level of pain he was feeling. I offered to pray again, saying: “if you went to the Dr and he gave you two weeks worth of tablets, you wouldn’t just take one and throw away the rest, would you?” He agreed that was silly, so agreed to more prayer. I prayed again and immediately he said:”I’m not just saying this, but the pain’s gone in both my chest AND my arm!” I suggested he thank Jesus since he was the Healer, not me. Almost straight away he said: “I expect it will come back, though”. I said: “no, Satan is the one who steals and destroys.” Keep thanking Jesus and if it tries to come back again, say no!”

During our chat he also mentioned about life being a journey, so I gave him the “Journey Into Life” booklet by Norman Warren, to take away.

Sharing On The Dangers of Spiritualism

May 3, 2012

danger sign Today we met a woman sitting having lunch who was wearing an unusual T-shirt. We asked about it and it turned out that she does drama classes for kids and was looking for a local venue. I suggested one, and told her of the Community website I ran which gave the phone number she needed. I also offered her a free advert on my website for her business. She was really grateful. I then said: “well, we’re Christians and we give freely”. That led on to a conversation about spiritual things and she told us several of her family were into Spiritualism. I told her about a website which had testimonies from ex-Spiritualists who had become Christians. She was really grateful and thanked us for helping her. 

Two E-mails From TV Companies Last Week

May 3, 2012

channel 4 logo    Last week I got an e-mail from Channel 4 TV. They have a 5 minute programme at 7.55pm after their News (4thoughtTV) which features individuals talking about their passions. They asked if any Christian convert who had kept it a secret from others would like to “come out”  on the programme and  share about their faith. I shared on my Facebook page, but as expected, no takers.

channle 5 logo  Channel  5 talked about the news that 13 year old girls might be offered contraception advice without the knowledge of their family doctor. They wanted an afternoon interview, but I was away all day anyway.
