Anointing the notes
Last month together with two fellow brothers-in-Christ, I travelled to Nepal to a far away village of Sindhuli where we held a seminar on inner healing and deliverance. The seminar was aimed at ministering to church leaders and elders and teaching them how to minister to others in this area. There were many testimonies throughout the seminar. They came up to give testimony. There were so many testimonies we had to close the time of sharing! They came with no hesitation, and so willingly to give praise to Jesus. Here are some of the testimonies:
One lady had pain in all her elbows and ankles and she could not walk. She was totally healed during ministry time in the seminar. Another lady was healed of her deep disappointment that her husband had been in an accident and lost both his legs several years ago. During the ministry time she wept for a long time as the Lord healed her heart and healed the deep disappointment she carried. A man testified that he had come to the conference with pain in his right leg, and after he was prayed over the day before, he had absolutely no more pain in his body. Another man testified that he was delivered from the fear of the dark! He was afraid to sleep in the dark and was completely delivered. Several people received the gift of tongues during the seminar. Then there was the lady who was carried to the seminar on the first day and after prayers she had been well enough to walk home! Wow! Wow! Wow! Thank you Jesus! This is all God. Glory to God.
When we were in Nagaland last Nov, we taught a 5 day class about the ministry of Jesus. In one of the sessions I was teaching how to pray for the sick. This was in preparation for our healing outreaches. We were planning two of them. We would go to any public place, put up a sign that said ‘Free Healing Prayers’, place some chairs there and invite whoever wanted prayers to come and be prayed over so that God would touch them and heal them. This could be at a market place or some similar place where there would be people. The healing outreaches were also meant to be the practicums for what was taught during the 5 day class, to allow the participants to ‘learn by doing’ the healing ministry of Jesus. At the same it was a good opportunity to share the goodness of God.
I taught the 5 step prayer model I had learnt from Randy Clarks school of healing. Simply put (1) ask the person what the problem or sickness was (2) do some diagnostics – ask questions like how long have you had this, did anything happen in your life before it began? (3) Decide how to pray (4) Pray for effect (5) Check the result, was there any improvement, test the healing, if not completely well pray again.
During the class I asked for a volunteer so that I could show how to go through these 5 steps. ‘Is there any one who is not well I asked?’ A lady put up her hand and said her throat was not completely well – she had some kind of infection and was prayed over the day before. I did not pick her as I wanted someone with a physical ailment that could be seen. I apologized and I asked if there was anyone else who was not well. Finally an elder of a church put up his hand. I asked him to come to the front of the class.
I went through the 5 steps, beginning with Step 1. I asked what was wrong with him. He said his wrist was hurting. Step 2 – I asked what happened to him. He explained that several weeks ago while riding his bike he had an accident and hurt his wrist, and it was still hurting. Step 3 – I considered how I should pray for him and felt I should just ask Holy Spirit to come upon him and heal his wrist. Step 4 – I began to do this and invited the presence of God to come and for God to heal him. Step 5 – I asked him to test his healing – he moved his hand in a circular motion and said the pain is still there although it was less. I said to the class if the person is not well pray again! So I prayed for him again, and this time when he tested his wrist he smiled widely and said the pain was all gone! I wanted to make sure it was the case so I asked him ‘Are you sure?’ He said yes it is all gone – smiling. I said okay lets test it. Can you do some push-ups and I gestured with my hands how one would do push-ups. He immediately understood and went down and began to do his push-ups! We all clapped our hands and laughed as he did his push-ups (lots of them!) and thanked the Lord Jesus for his healing. Indeed Papa God you are good and you are good all the time, and all the time you are good!
P.S. the gentleman I had prayed over and who did the push-ups is in the attached photo. He is seen here practicing what he learnt during the healing outreach. God healed several people and children through his prayers during the outreaches!
In November 2014 Kim and I went to Nagaland, India to teach at a bible school run by Himalaya International Ministry for 5 days. The teaching and ministry aimed to turn the participants into revivalists and covered topics like back to the womb, blessings and curses, inner healing and deliverance, baptism of Holy Spirit, the Father Heart of God, Hearing the voice of God, the armor of God and how to pray for the sick. To ensure that the training was practical, the participants had to take part in two healing evangelism outreaches.
For the first outreach when we arrived at the village near the bible school we put up a banner which read free healing prayers. At first only little children came forward (1st photo), and as they did so these children began to receive their healings. Then the adults started to come forward and God began to heal them as well.
The second photo shows one of the participants (a pastor) in the class asking the person he had prayed for to test his heaing. He had pain in his back and it had gone! He was bending to his side and back to see if all the pain had gone and it was! Thank you Jesus!
The third photo shows the elderly lady doing the same thing…testing out her healing, and she spent about 10 mins trying just to make sure it was all gone. Thank you Jesus! She and her husband came to church the next weekend. Yay God!
There was a carnival like atmosphere at the place as the worship leader played his guitar and sang, and all the children came and sat around to sing songs. We had a wonderful time blessing the people that came, thank you God
Kim and I first met her on the day we started to teach at the Ministry Centre at Myitkinya. She was a little old lady and they said she was more than 90 years old. What I remember most clearly about her was that she was very nice and her face was just glowing – and she smiled a lot. That day during a break in our teaching Kim and I prayed for a lady who had come to the seminar with crutches. She said she had an accident. After leading her to forgive the person that knocked her (she was on a bike) and then to bless him, we then prayed for her. She was able to walk without crutches after that! Wow thank you Jesus! We asked her to test her healing by trying to walk round and round the area for about 5 mins to make sure she was well. Well this old lady watched the whole thing because she was sitting right in front – the first row. While I was teaching I had noticed she was rubbing her leg as if it was hurting. So during another break I asked her what was wrong with her leg. She said it was hurt and the hurting began that morning. So strange! So we prayed for her, commanded the pain to go and asked her to test her leg. It was so cute the way she tested her healing. I asked her to swing her body side to side to put pressure on her leg so see if it hurt – there was no pain. She had watched the other lady earlier that day bend her knees and lower herself to test her healing so she proceeded to do the same. So cute, she was really having a go at testing her healing! She was well, wow thank you Jesus! In the picture you can see me asking her by how much has the pain gone down… she was tested out her healing.
Scene from the aircraft not long after praying for the young lady
On our flight to Yangon, Kim was sitting next to a young lady and towards the end of the flight found out she was a maid (house helper) returning from Singapore after working here for 9 months. Kim was curious why she was returning to Myanmar after 9 months, as such contracts in Singapore are often for 2 years. She said she had hurt her hand and she could no longer work, and she showed her hand to Kim indicating there was pain. Kim promptly asked if she could pray for her and she agreed. I joined by putting my hand over kim’s. After we finished praying the first time the young lady ‘tested’ her hand and she said it still hurt slightly. We again prayed for her with Kim placing one hand above hers and the other below it. As Kim was praying the young ladys face just brightened up, and she started to try out her healing and she said with a big smile its well! Its good! No more pain! She leaned over across the aisle towards some friends who were also returning with her and told them her hand was healed. At first they did not know how to react to the news although they had been watching from across the aisle the whole time. Quite soon after we finished praying for his young lady we looked out the window and saw a wonderful rainbow, I took out my phone and snapped a few shots – a reminder of Gods promises.
We soon landed and the young lady was of course very happy with her healing still smilling brightly. Thank you Jesus! As we were moving down the aisle of the aircraft, we came across another lady with crutches and noticed one of her legs was in a cast. We tried to stop and find a place where we could pray for her but it was not a convenient location as the passengers were all moving down the aisle leaving the aircraft. We decided to get out of the aircraft and wait at the corridor but the lady did not appear and we realised that she would only come out after all the passengers had exited. So we decided to wait for her at the baggage pick up area. While I watched for our bags Kim watched for the lady, and soon spotted her being wheel out through Immigration. She was then wheeled to the baggage area! Kim asked what was wrong with ther leg and found out she had broken her ankle in a fall in Singapore. She agreed to receive prayer and Kim proceeded to pray for her. But soon her luggage arrived and they wanted to wheel her out. Being in a wheel chair she was given special privileges and was allowed to cut the queue. So we tried to get through Customs as soon as we could, and literally ran after her as she was wheeled out of the airports main entrance. Catching up with her Kim asked if we could continue to pray for her. By this time her dad and sister were with her, they had come to meet her at the airport. She was willing and she said she felt heat as we prayed. She thanked us for the prayer and the pastor (our contact in Yangon) provided his telephone number to them if they needed to contact him. While she did not test her healing I beleive she was healed when we prayed for her. Thank you God This was just the start of 7 wonderful days of adventure with the Lord in Myanmar.
