A team of us: Kristi Lindsay, Tim Smith, Mandy Brakefield, Hannah Til,, David and Betsy Trapp, translators Marilyn and Giovanni and myself (Whit Bass) were asked by Dario to visit a young man who had been injured and bedridden. We went to pray for his healing.
As we were leaving his bedroom Mandy Brakefield came to me and said I need you to help me share the gospel with these children. There were nine (9) children waiting to hear the gospel message. I asked the question to start off my sharing time; if you could have one wish what would it be? I looked at one young man and asked him this question. Probably about 12 years old. He answered, “I would like for my parents to take me to church.” So I shared the gospel with these children and all of 9 of the children prayed to receive Christ.
After leading these nine children to Christ we went to the young boys home who said his one wish was that his parents would take him to church. We were able to lead both of his parents to Christ as well as three other siblings. This was (13) individuals who came to Christ in one single village. The father opened up to me and said, how do I overcome temptation? I began to talk to him about walking in the power of the Holy Spirit and prayed for him to be able to overcome temptation by the resurrection power.
MANDY BRAKEFIELD PERSPECTIVE
We followed the young boy back to his home and he went in and got his mother and father and siblings all gathered around. As Whit started to speak to the family I saw prophetically what looked to be like a clear mirage moving to them from Whits mouth fueled by the Holy Spirit.
