Praise God for the great things we have seen Him do in the past few weeks as I ministered in New Zealand (twice), in England and in Australia.
I've been privileged to minister with churches, leaders and youth groups as well as spending an increasing amount of time in personal ministry to, and mentoring of, pastors and leaders. I am so encouraged as I spend time with men and women who are faithfully serving God and advancing His Kingdom in their various spheres of influence. Many face challenges that seek to bring discouragement and weariness but, through the empowering of the Holy Spirit, they are able to press on to fulfil the call of God on their lives.
In all the meetings there has been a powerful flow of the Holy Spirit, evidenced in prophetic ministry, major times of freedom for individuals along with many receiving physical healing. One pastor was healed from long term stomach pains while another leader was healed from ankle and leg pain they had suffered for many years. We've received many testimonies from people who have encountered the healing power of God in their lives after receiving prayer. A man was healed from a urinary and gastric problem; a lady was suffering severe pain in her ribs but was instantly healed. Many have shared how pain has gone from various limbs and parts of their body. A lady who had suffered a medical mishap 25 years ago, and had been confined to a wheelchair and callipers ever since, received prayer in a meeting. She had maintained a wonderful faith in God through the years. When she arrived home after the meeting she told her son to buy her some shoes and within an hour she stepped out of the wheelchair and is now able to walk freely, praise God!! A person who came to a meeting had been struggling with suicidal thoughts which led to depression. They received prayer and experienced an 'instant lifting' of the heaviness that was hanging over them. Weeks later they are doing really well. God is good, and receives all the honour and glory.
In the coming weeks I'll be ministering in Australia and the USA, continuing to believe for the Lord to powerfully impact people's lives so they can shine brightly in their world and bring positive influence and change through the empowering of the Holy Spirit.
With funds raised from many supporters we have been able to purchase an oven for Pastor Jacquiline in Kenya
