Thursday, October 3, 2019: I met with my son Robby at Farmerville for lunch overlooking Lake D’ Arbonne. It was a good visit. He left; I went to pay for the meal; when I got back to the table to leave a tip two ladies were already setting there. Jokingly, I told them that I was paying them to set there. This brought on a light conversation; they worked at the tax assessor's office. I spoke up boldly and said; I am a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, would you like for me to pray for you. They both said yes; I asked what about? The response was; their workload there at the tax assessor's office. I prayed then they responded with a thanks; one stood and hugged me. Then she helped me with the door as I left. I like it when the Lord allows things like this to happen. Praise the name of Jesus!
Here is another testimony from Brazil trip by Mei Powers and Michelle Bass.
I prayed for my translator’s cousin. She had urinary infection for long time and experienced chronic pain. The doctor told her he couldn't do anything to help her. We prayed and I asked her to go to bathroom to check. She came back and told us the pain was gone.
God is so good.
A boxer got healed.
Prayed for a man that was a boxer. He stopped his career because of the pain in his chest and left side caused by a cyst. We prayed and asked him to check it out and the pain was gone in his left side. He was so excited and told me over and over that the pain had been there for 2 years. Then We prayed for his chest. After first prayer pain was still there. We prayed again and he breathed really strongly. He started smiling and laughing and said the pain was gone.
" Jesus is your healer if you need any healing"
Wednesday, December 16, 2015: This is another testimony by James Morris. There was a guy that he knew that was looking for another recovery house to go to. James had connections with several recovery houses in this area and was able to help him. He also mentioned that he didn't have any peace and was full of doubt. James asked him if he could pray for him and he agreed. After praying he thanked James for praying for him and he felt the peace of God coming over him. This touch James' heart and he began to praise and worship God. This experience not only helped the guy but built James' faith also.
Wednesday, December 16, 2015: Today I visited with James Morris and he gave me this testimony about being led by the Holy Spirit. He has a neighbor that was going into the hospital for back surgery. James had a desire to pray for him but didn't have the opportunity. Tuesday, he had an opportunity to visit with his neighbor. The neighbor mentioned that after the surgery he began to have an infection and was in pain. After their conversation James asked him if he could pray with him. His response was, "I have been waiting for someone to step up and pray for me." When he had finished praying for him James could tell by the look on his face that God had touched him. This experience brought joy to James's heart because joy comes from the harvest (reaching out to others).
Dear Brother Robert,
Thank you for the good letter! I have been in Michigan and am late responding.
I deeply appreciate the testimonies! I am grateful for the testimonies about the trip to Belarus. That was a great trip and great report from Whit, Michelle and the others that ministered there. Belarus and other areas have suffered so much as a result of Hitler and Stalin. Then there was the nuclear meltdown. It is no wonder that those there seldom smile.
I applaud the outreach to them! In a way, I felt that I was there with them.
I also appreciate the Honduran testimony. It is encouraging to see the total trust in the Lord and the Lord’s faithfulness in the young man’s vocal Cord.
Convoy of Hope is another great mission.
Life comes to us as we give life to others. I am blessed that your people are seeing Jesus work outside the walls!
Thank you also for the report on the board’s meeting. As long as the motive is serving, the Lord will bless and minister.
Please pass along my love and gratitude.
At noon today Tim Smith and I met at the Walmart parking lot just to talk. I filled him in on things that were going on in the family of God here. Then he began to tell me about his wayward stepson Charlie; who is addicted to drugs and uses him and his wife. Tim and his wife Norma Jean are emotionally distraught trying to help this young man but all effort has failed. I told Tim that he needed to turn Charlie lose, placed him in God's hand; that the Lord had a work for Tim to do and he didn't need to be emotionally and financially tied up in the situation. I prayed for Tim and he went away with a light spirit and laughter and his voice saying, "Thank you pastor!"
Wednesday, December 2, 2015: This morning I went up to Saxons barbershop for a haircut; my barber Tommy Saxons has just returned to work after having his third back surgery. After completing my haircut, he announced to those waiting that he had to go and sit down and get some rest; he was hurting. As we walked out of the barbershop he headed toward his truck and I headed toward my Van. I kept looking at Tommy and I felt that our Lord wanted me to pray for him. I called out to Tommy; "Can I pray for you?" He answered back; "Please do." Now Tommy is not a religious person and spends most of his Sunday’s fishing or hunting.
I walked over and laid my hands on his shoulder and began to pray asking God to touch and healed his back. As I finished; he said, "Lord help Robert also." Then as he tried to say, "Thanks", his voice cracked and he began to weep dropping is he head. I pray that the Lord touched him.

One particular MOMENT that took place in the prayer tent happened when I walked up to an older gentleman standing and waiting. I asked him if he had been prayed with yet. He said he had. I asked him if he had pain in his body. He said, “all the time in my lower back.” I then offered to pray with him about his back pain. I asked him to show me where the pain was located. He then showed me. I placed my hand on the location where there was pain. I prayed a short prayer commanding the pain to leave and his back to be healed. “I consecrate his back by the power of Jesus name.” I asked him to walk and check his back-pain levels. He was shocked. He said “It’s much better.” I then said on a scale from 1-10 pain level and 10 being the highest, what was your pain level. He said a 7. After praying once it went to a level 3 of pain. I said let’s pray again and give thanks to the Lord for touching your back. We thanked the Lord. Then I prayed again. Pain go; back be healed in Jesus name. We checked his back. He said it was even better. I told the gentleman, there is just one thing you need to know about this blessing you have received. The Lord is going to anoint you to pray for others and pass on what you have received.
So, about this time his wife walked up. I asked her, do you have pain in your body. Shocked, she looked at me and says yes. I have a knot in my shoulder that is causing me much pain. (She either said she’s been to the doctor or going to see a doctor) at this point. I then looked at her husband and said, “Well here is your first opportunity to share what you have received.” I guided the husband in praying for his wife; I showed him how to place his hand on his wife’s knot and he prayed for her pain to leave and the knot to go. She was blown away by what happened. The pain not only left shoulder but she said she tangibly could feel the presence of the Lord touch her heart. She was visibly moved by God’s love for her. I then told the two of them. When you both walk together in agreement in what had taken place today you will see a double portion of God’s anointing on you. There will be a double power as you minister together. As they were holding hands, I prayed for them both to be used mightily of God. They received this news with GREAT JOY.
Tuesday, December 1, 2015: At noon I met with James Morris at Southern Steel Fabricators, as he got into the Van, he was radiant and smiling from ear to ear. I asked James how things were going; he said fantastic. He said, his mother Rhonda who just got out of prison because of crack cocaine and is now living in a three-quarter house went to church with him Sunday at First Assembly in West Monroe. His girlfriend Stephanie who hasn't been out of prison longer but who is now in a halfway house was also with them. Stephanie's mother, Rhonda went to church with us also. James himself has not been out of prison long; has a history of drugs himself. Can God do anything in the situation; he can! At the end of the service James's mother Rhonda and his girlfriend Stephanie had a mighty baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. Stephanie's mother, and another Rhonda is asking for deliverance; so we are working on that. Sunday afternoon James was also filled with the Holy Spirit that while driving in his vehicle and worshiping God; God baptized him with a mighty Baptism in the Holy Spirit and Fire. What an awesome day this was for their lives
Wednesday, September 15, 2019: Jerry Linhares and I went up to Farmerville
Nursing Home to visit Ginger; I had Jerry pray for the ladies. That day he prayed

After a long tine she and he both were in tears. He has been talking to everyone
about this visit ever since.
