We visited the village of Capucales.
While at this village we sang songs, gave toothbrushes and toothpaste away, and I preached a simple message on how to pray and hear the voice of God through the Lord’s Prayer Matthew 6. One lady came in and requested prayer for her day dungy fever to be healed. So I invited all who wanted to learn how to pray for the sick to come and join me. We prayed for each one of the children and young people and even some of the adults to have boldness to pray for the sick and that’s exactly what we did together.
Not too long after this Mandy and Hannah brought to my attention two young people that were living in a sinful sexual relationship with one another. I asked him if I could pray for them and basically let them know that the Lord loves them enough to show us they were living in sin. They were not interested in changing or turning from their sin. They did however let us pray for them to receive a desire to walk in obedience but no decision was made to make any changes.
Tonight we met at pastor Dario’s church for a worship service. The worship team filled with young people did an outstanding job leading us in worship. The young people have come so far in their musical talents. Dario asked our team if any of us wanted to preach. I had not prepared a message but the Lord gave me a verse of one I had preached before. I felt I had to talk to the people about becoming a living stone and the Lord gave me pictures of the young people being like ARROWS in a quiver that were not meant to stay in the QUIVER. I gave a very strong word to the people and they responded very fervently.
KEVIN NUGENT PERSPECTIVE - The worship team was absolutely amazing! I was brought to tears many times during their leading of praise in music. There is no doubt there is an anointing from God on the entire group. Very powerful time in the Spirit for me.
KEVIN NUGENT PERSPECTIVE - During Whit’s message he asked the congregation to stand and turn around all looking backwards. He then asked the church “Who are you bringing to Heaven with you?” This was a powerful point that spoke to me and many others as well including our translator and disciple, Kerlin who shared that with me the next day.
KEVIN NUGENT PERSPECTIVE - During the praying for people, Bro Gary Lively was as he always is, stern like an old oak tree constantly praying and covering the entire perimeter of people with a waving of the Holy Spirit. He is like a brick wall protecting the group from any outside interference and at the same time, locking in the power of the Holy Ghost over the people. I always love having my brother praying around me.
LAME SIBLING CARLOS STANDS AND TAKES STEPS.... BELIEVING CARLOS WILL SOON BE TOTALLY LAME FREE....
KEVIN NUGENT PERSPECTIVE - At the end of Whit’s message, he asked all those needing prayer for boldness in Christ or healing to come to the altar and our team began laying hands on what seemed to be around 20. I prayed with the Montoya family specifically Mama Montoya and Carlos. We have been pouring into this wonderful family for many years and have become very close to them all. The Spirit was heavy and the presence of God was almost overwhelming.
At the end of the service I noticed Marilyn and Giovanni‘s little brother Carlos has been crippled since I’ve known them. On this night he was not in his wheelchair. He was tugging on both mother and father as if to try and pull himself up at the end of the service. So I walked up to him and begin to pray for him and others from my team joined me. David Trapp and Kevin Nugent as I recall and Mandy Brakefield. We prayed with Carlos’ parents and he stood Up on his own accord “this came from his brother GIOVANNI told me that his mother told him CARLOS stood on his own... He then began taking steps as we guided and assisted him. He must have taken about 30 to 40 steps altogether. This moment was certainly a supernatural moment. His parents nor his siblings had ever seen him do anything like this. The father was weeping with tears of joy after this monumental night. Please keep praying for Carlos to get stronger and become whole and healed completely in Jesus name. Declare Philippians 1:6 over Carlos - He who began a good work in Carlos to bring it to completion...
MANDY BRAKEFIELDS PERSPECTIVE
I’ve seen Carolos several times in years past in a wheel chair not able to move his legs in one position all twisted up. We would always lay hands on him and pray for him in times past. Tonight when I saw him I was standing in front of him right before he STOOD to take a step. I noticed jolts surging through Whit into Carlos and at the same time these jolts would take place there would be a big smile appear on Carlos face. This happened more than once as Carlos was taking steps with all of us praying and standing assisting him.
GARY LIVELY PERSPECTIVE
I was pleasantly surprised to see Carlos sitting in a chair(not his wheelchair) during the service. It was a joyous time seeing him walk with assistance. Holy Spirit was moving mightily as Whit ministered and stirred the hunger of the Honduran people as well as the mission team.
MAN ON A MOTORCYCLE
Pulls into a gas station ⛽️ we stopped at on the way home after church ⛪️. I was riding in the back of the truck with Gary Lively and I noticed the man kept making eye contact and being friendly. I was beside Gary Lively and I told Gary, “I’m about to go lead this man to Christ”
So I get our translator Laura to assist me and we shared the Gospel with him. I asked him the question, “If you were standing before Jesus and he said to you why should I let you in to Heaven, what would you tell him?”
He gave a works answer ... I’m a good person. I was able to explain to him our need for a SAVIOR. He professed Christ as his Savior soon after I shared the gospel.
