at the village of MIGOWI to Conduct our pastor and leader training.
Dr. Mike spoke on the concept and importance of everyone winning the world by ONE person at a time. THE ONE FOCUS MESSAGE…
Jimmy Eley gave his testimony of his life story and the very low and difficult and painful trials he has experienced. The crowd was moved and Jimmy set up what I needed to teach later on with the topic of deliverance.
I (Whit) taught on how when we pray for the sick and see them healed that this can be a great tool for evangelism. A term known as POWER EVANGELISM. I shared about another gas station encounter today and how when people come asking for help, we can pray with and for them and sometimes these may lead to a SALVATION DECISION.
I spoke to the Pastors about our need to simply desire to “DO WHAT JESUS DID”. I told them I believed that this is what true discipleship is. It’s not only learning more information but also the demonstration of what has been learned. I led a time of demonstration – as I called the first 2 in the crowd in need of healing to come forward. A man and woman came forward.
The man said he had pain in his eyes. So, I prayed for him first. We had a partial healing. One eye was better but the other eye was still in pain. So, I prayed again for the second eye. We got a full result. I then had that man pray for the lady who had pain inside her stomach area. I directed him and showed him how to pray for her; where to place his hand over her area where pain was located. She placed her hand on the area of pain and he placed his hands-on top of hers. After the man prayed for the lady she was healed of pain. I then told everyone else still needing prayer to see these 2 or to simply pray for one another before leaving this weekend. We had another man healed of pain in his wrist while we were praying as a group soon after this demonstration reported by Dr. Mike Walker.
Rayland Trisler spoke the last message for the day as he taught on marriage and this was a riot of fun. The Pastors and leaders really got into his message and were responsive with laughter as Rayland taught on the origin of marriage. Great truth was spoken and much fun was experienced as Rayland taught on the role of Man and Wife in marriage.
Once we completed the conference, we returned to the hotel area near the mountain. The 4 of us sat and visited and laughed for about 3 1/2 hours back at the GATEWAY LODGE. After we ate our evening meal we prayed for Princess - the waitresses’ name we gave her since her name sounded like princes.
We prayed for her future and Dr. Mike felt strongly to tell her to be sure of who she married. That this decision would be one of her most important decisions she would ever make.
We then went back to our rooms. About 5 minutes later Jimmy Eley came to my room and knocked on my door. He said he had prayed for Princess who told him she had a cyst in her lower abdominal area. That he didn’t see any improvement after praying. Jimmy asked me to join him to pray with her about this. So, Jimmy and I went back to pray for her. We saw immediate relief the first time we prayed but not complete. We then prayed again and she said her pain was leaving. I told Jimmy sometimes we have to pray more than once.
