I (Whit) started the morning early sharing about our trip to the front desk receptionist whom I had not found to be overly friendly. After sharing with her while on the phone with Michelle about the miracles and healing she seemed interested. So, I offered to pray for her. She had requested for prayer for her family. Mother, friend, etc. HL and I prayed with her and Michelle also by phone - she (receptionist) was receptive to want to attend church with us on Sunday. Her whole attitude changed after this. MUCH KINDER!!!
While ordering breakfast our server (Carolyn) a young lady who looked to be in her late teens. I asked Pastor Jeremiah to ask her if we could pray for her about any need in her life.
After Pastor Jeremiah spoke to her he turned to me and said she wants to accept Jesus as her Lord and Savior. So, Pastor Jeremiah asked me to lead her into a Salvation prayer. Pastor Alice and Pastor Carolyn also joined in as we prayed with the Waitress - Carolyn - we then prayed for her to walk in resurrection Power. She received a touch from God powerfully in that moment. The Lord touched her as we shook under the power of HIS presence. She was moved. Pastor Alice gave waitress Carolyn a follow up discipleship booklet of how to grow as a new believer.
Women’s Conference Day 2:
Jane Temple taught on Relationships - On the difference between men and women. She did a great job setting a tone for response time. Today’s altar call response was primarily for relationship healing, family healing. Approx. 40-50 came for prayer. Each one waited as our team prayed with interpreters from Kenya. Our team - Kallie, Mike, Jane, Angie and Brother Doyle along with pastors Carol, Alice and Jeremiah also joined us to pray. Hannah sang over us during response time. “Grace” in Red from Kenya - showed up again and assisted Mike Clark praying with those in need. Mike found out that Grace is like an adopted child to our host pastor and she was not serving in the church until yesterday when she was able to see God use her to work miracles. The pastor of the church announced this morning that his daughter Grace has been forever changed and now she has a new life and desires to serve. We saw many hearts healed and changed. Pastor Alice daughter who is a 12 yr old - joined up with Angie to help interpret today. A big step. Kallie joined with me (Whit) and prayed for a lady’s back pain to leave. She saw the power of God at work.
Angie also began praying for others and I placed Joy “12 yr. old dir.) of Pastor Alice to interpret for her.
At the end there was a lady demonized from witchcraft. We joined in to have her renounce the witchcraft spirit. We all celebrated as she found freedom today. Her face and countenance changed. She went from being stiff and manifesting to being relaxed and having much Joy.
(Neil Powers) perspective
Yesterday I was scheduled to preach at the crusade. Leading up to the time to preach it was a struggle to prepare. I was exhausted and struggled to get focused to preach. I was standing beside the stage moments before speaking and I felt very confused about what I was about to share. When I walked up the stage and spoke immediately a lady in the back started screaming and rolling on the ground manifesting a demon. I found out later someone on the team was ministering to her when I started to speak. I saw the entire audience immediately looking over to see what was happening. It was like I lost my audience for the moment. I kept preaching and such clarity came. I could feel the Lord speaking through me. In the end several came forward to accept Christ. The team was able to get the lady manifesting a demon free and she accepted Christ.
Michael Clark (Perspective)
Last night a young man approached me to ask if I would come with him. He said there was a woman in the back that wanted to accept Jesus. As I approached her she seemed serious and ready. I began to share with her about how much Jesus loves her and how valuable she is to him. She began to weep and as I continued she started passing out. I grabbed a young man to help catch her and I continued to pray. As I called on the power in Jesus name the lady immediately went into a very violent demonic out of control rage. A local pastor jumped in with me as the lady went to the ground, rolling in the dirt, screaming and speaking in demonic voices. After a lengthy fight the demons were hushed and we were able to get the lady out of the crowd to a safe place. Whit had jumped in to help and took over from here as I was grabbed again to pray for a young man with other issues. The young man was touched by God very shortly and I was able to rejoin Whit and a few others. In the end the lady was delivered from many demons, she found peace, she forgave people who had hurt her and she was very joyfully proclaiming Jesus as her Lord. We all praised Jesus for this awesome victory and loved on and prayed for many others. Wow, what a powerful day!
Whit and I are teamed up again this morning going to another church to usher in the awesome Holy Spirit power. Holy Spirit has been so very amazing every day in many, many ways.
(Whit’s Perspective) on the lady manifesting: I was at the front listening to Neil preach. The anointing was strong on him as he preached with such power and authority. I noticed however a crowd forming around a person far off in the distance. I felt led to walk over and see. What I discovered was an all-out war of a young lady flailing around in the dirt with a number of pastors and our team battling to get her free. Bishop Jeremiah came and grabbed my hand to help. I began joining in. I felt the Holy Spirit speak to me.... get her off to the side away from the crowd. This is what we did. We bonded the spirit and I began to speak to her. Once we reached two parked cars we stood in between them. I began to hug and told her we loved her. That God loved her. That he sent us all the way from America to show her how much she was loved. She began to weep and sobbed. I was dusty and sweaty from hugging her. Worth it all. I felt prompted to ask her if she needed to forgive anyone. SURE, enough she had a HUGE mother wound and dealt with much hurt and pain. We were able to keep her manifestations under control while I led her to pray a prayer of forgiveness to her mother; prayed for specific healing to her emotional pain and trauma. She eventually was able to pray and receive Christ!!! A Beautiful Ending to a Crazy Beginning.
