Wednesday morning (which I later discovered was the day of Pentecost on the
Hebraic Calendar by Susan Jones) our team went to go and eat breakfast -
Hannah looked at me across the table while we were eating and said, "I feel pain
in myneck" and she pointed to the side of her neck. I told her to just wait until we
finished eating breakfast and then we would look into it. I went and spoke to
Heidal the interpreter and I asked him if he would go and ask any of the workers
that worked at the restaurant if anyone had pain in their neck. He agreed to do this.
He went and spoke to the different workers and two of the ladies the owner and
her sister have been having pain in her neck. The lady who owned the restaurant
said that her neck had been hurting her for about 1 year now. This step of faith
exposed the Baptist missionaries there on site to the demonstration and power
of the kingdom of God at work. It was a visible witness that we can still perform
he gifts that God offers us for today not just when Jesus walked the earth.
Luz and Saida both received Christ today as Savior. The Program of hope and
life home for high risk teens where violence and potential sexual abuse has been
taking place. Luz (means Light) is a 13-year-old teenage girl. Today as we arrived
all the other students have been called out to court. So. there was only one child
teen here- luz. It was obvious that the Lord wanted it this way. We were able to
share the love of Christ with her. Hannah shared how she had gone through difficult
times in her own life. Then she sang two songs to her in the group. Luz was moved
with compassion. She surrendered her life today to receive Christ. After she received
Christ I asked if I could walk over and lay hands on her. Our whole team surrounded
her as we proclaimed and declared the freedom that Jesus brings through his blood,
his resurrection power and his name. I canceled curses, assignments over her life as
well as her generational bloodline curses. As we were praying for her to receive all
the Holy spirit had for her one of the workers there was moved by the Holy Spirit.
Before our team arrived caida and the other worker prayed for luz. Seida said she
was moved with a burning in her heart yet an emptiness all the same time. Little did
we know that the Holy Spirit would move on Seidas heart that she needed to receive
Jesus also as Savior. Our team leader Terry Parks was moved with tears when he
looked to the Volunteer adult and asked if she fully knew Jesus as her Savior. With
tears Saida responded that she needed Jesus and we all were able to pray for her
and led her to Christ as well.
