On August the 15th, five missionaries from the Flemington AG Church took to the road for a week of ministry. During their seven day ministry trip, they partook in; Evangelism, Water Outreach, Sidewalk Art, Lake Ministry, Baptisms, and Prayer walks. The breath of God truly swept the plains and much of the Midwest and Eastern states as this anointed team preached to more than 395 peoples. The Lord worked so many miracles as people were healed, baptized and prayed for!
For me one of the most memorable days of this trip was in Columbus Ohio one of the stops along the way headed back to New Jersey. It was Saturday morning and we had stopped to do some ministry on the streets of downtown Columbus. We split the groups up into two teams and the teams went out to pray and pass out bible tracks. I was just going to follow and take pictures to encourage and oversee the ministry when I heard in my spirit to walk to the court house and pray. So I did not thinking too much about it. I could see the kids in the distance and no one was anywhere near the courthouse. So I figured I’m just prayer walking. Then a couple emerges from behind the Ben Franklin statue. They were both injured. She had had surgery on her right leg, he was suffering with Arthritis. God said; “pray for them both” So of course I did.
I approached the couple and asked if I could pray with them. They both agreed and looked a little irritated as if they had been through this before and they just wanted to be left alone. I persisted and began to pray. I said I believe God wants to heal them. They both chuckled and said sure. I said if God can’t heal them and you’re not well today God is a liar and everything misconception you’ve ever thought about God is true. However, that today all Glory would be given to the Father and God would be magnified though a mighty work and that their testimony in this moment would expand the kingdom. They looked at me in disbelief first at what I had said and then at the fact that if God didn’t do something incredible, I was to blame. I was thinking the same thing. I was mortified at what I had just said. But there was no turning back. I knew what God had said and I just had to do it. I began to pray for the woman first. I said Lord you are glorious and by the works of your victory on the cross we command this foot to be healed in the name of Jesus. That was it. I stepped back and said give it a try. She looked at me confused as if to say that’s it? I nodded in response hoping that this indeed was it because I couldn’t think of anything else. With a moment of silence she said thank you and began wrapping her ankle with the brace the doctor gave her. I said “No! Try it out.” She looked at me in irritation and then began to slowly with hesitation moving her broken ankle. Faster and faster she began to move her foot and then jumped to her feet screaming “Oh my God, Oh S**t its better, Oh my God.” This went on for some time. Then she took me by the hand and asked if I would pray with her friend. I looked at his withered hand and prayed with him. He smiled and looked at me and said thanks and then put his hand back down. Not satisfied I asked him to remove the bandages and sling and give it a try. She chimed in “God please” He willingly undid the bandages and as the last wrap came off, both her and the arthritis victim screamed “Oh my God its normal!” “I can move it” he shouted. They began to dance and cry and praise God. It was awesome.
For the next couple of minutes we prayed and shared testimonies and revelations. It was beautiful to watch God at work in so many lives, including my own. For well over an hour they stayed to pray and worship the Lord. God did mighty works during the Oklahoma ministry trip; it was truly a wave of refreshing across the plains and for the ministry team. This was just one of many more miracles and testimonies we had this summer. To God be the glory and praise. All in all it was seven ministry days, 395 people witnessed to, 65 prayer intercessions and four salvations. What a blessing to be a part of the Kingdom of God.
We can’t wait to see what God is going to do next.
