That is SOOO COOLL!!! Im excited for you! ronda and I read his book and i think his vision for the church is amazing. Im so glad God is making the way straight and showing you His love in this. its a beautiful thing to see a person get blessed thats for sure. and i know your blessing will spread and bless many more through you:)
I'm excited for me too!! That is my hope and prayer - that through this teaching and experience God will use me greatly in this city where He has placed me. My poor little cessationist church is falling apart. They need an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
I tried 2 other churches. The first one (hubby was not with me 1st time) had nice worship instead of hymns and it felt homey - there was love. But the message was useless. I went a second time with hubby and again the message was useless and hubby was not drawn to it. And the one that believes in Holy Spirit gifts left me with an icky feeling. The worship was awesome so I was really excited that maybe I'd found a new church home. But the message was.... empty. As were my interactions with the pastor and his wife. I didn't sense love there. It was weird. So... we've decided, for now, to stay put. My prayer is that I will come back from Singapore healed and equipped with boldness to lay hands on and heal others, and SHOW my church that healing & etc ARE for today. I want to pray with my pastor to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Now wouldn't that be awesome?
(Not a healing testimony but a major breakthrough for me.) We boarded the plane this morning and sat down in our seats. I noticed a lady 2 seats over with a supporter on her wrist. Well! ... I guess I'm supposed to pray for her! @_@ I asked God to give me an obvious opportunity to pray because I didn't want to just lean over and start talking to her out of the blue. So when she was having trouble latching the tray in place I thought, OK, it's now or never. I said, "Can I help you with that?" Then, "I noticed your wrist. Do you have any pain?" (I said it!!! I didn't chicken out!!!) She told me what happened and that it was mostly better but stiff. I told her that I pray for people and see them get healed and would it be ok to pray for her? She asked if I was a Christian and said she's Catholic and let me pray. I just commanded all the pain and stiffness to leave in Jesus' Name. There was no surprised look on her face or anything but she was happy and thankful and blessed me. I prayed (silently) that when she tried to use it later she would notice that it didn't bother her anymore. I was able to just DO IT and have no regrets! This is HUGE for shy me. To be continued...
