celebrate recovery program. The church was filled with children and a few
women and men. It appeared that the night would be harder than what we
expected. After Hannah led worship - Rayland gave an overview of the CR
Program. Erica Shared her testimony - then we opened up the altar. No one
came forward in the beginning. I asked the Pastor if there was anyone who
needed prayer in his congregation and he took me to a man who was addicted
to crack cocaine in the very back of the church. We spoke with him and led
him to Christ and we also led him through some prayers to renounce a spirit
bondage and the specific bondage of crack cocaine. This man's wife was not
a Christian - I had visited with her before speaking to her husband and she
said that she was not yet ready to receive Christ as her Savior yet. I had
spoken to her before I spoke to him about accepting Jesus Christ and while
I was leading her husband to Christ, there was a lady who began to confess
her sins at the front of the church. I heard her cry out to the Lord loudly.
She was so overcome and overwhelmed by God's presence that she fell out
according to Rayland Trisler. Later after the lady fell out I heard my name called
out by Rayland to come pray for a little girl who was deaf and mute. We
gathered around the young girl and prayed for her but did not see the healing
for her in that moment.
On Friday Morning, we gave the other guitar made available by Curt Eberts
and some of our other Men of Covenant Life Fellowship to the church where
the missionaries attend. They each know how to play the guitar.
