Fearless Persistence

Wesley (16yrs.) - One day, in Harrisburg, I was with Rebekah and Elizabeth. We spotted 6 people standing outside an apartment complex. By the time we made our way to the apartments the number of people in the group had grown. As I started presenting the gospel story everyone left except for three people. I was determined to talk to the ones who went inside, so I went to the door on the left and found a few of the people that had disappeared when I was talking. I continued with the gospel story. Then, I walked to the door on the right where the rest of the group had gone. There were maybe five people but one was already saved. They all listened as I presented the gospel for the second time. Elizabeth and Rebekah were still ministering to the ones who stayed outside. All nine of them prayed the prayer of Salvation and knew with confidence that they were going to go to heaven when they died. I thought it was awesome that because I was persistent seven people accepted Christ. Sometimes it is hard to get people to listen in a group setting, but you just have to step out in boldness and be persistent.

A Simple Prayer

Harry (14 yrs) - I came to the end of a row of apartments and saw a group of people between the woods and apartment building. I talked to them and asked if they needed prayer for anything. They said, like many people have told us, to pray for anything because everybody needs prayer. I said a simple prayer and in the middle of praying, I said, "in the name of Jesus, any pain and sickness, I command you to go and I command these bodies to be healed and whole!"  The lady whose hand I was holding said that she had broken her leg the week before.  She said that before the prayer she was in a lot of pain, but after the prayer her leg was better and she stood up and walked on it. I didn’t even know before I prayed that she was in any pain.  That was cool!

Miracle Stairmaster

Harry (14 yrs) - I was with Jason and Kayla at Allen Homes. We chased down this lady who was taking out her trash. She had arthritis in her knees and couldn’t walk up and down her stairs. We laid hands on her and commanded the pain to go, then told her to act on her faith. We had her running up and down her stairs without holding the rail.  She was very excited and praising God that her knees were healed instantly!

Give Me That Walker!

Bubba (17 yrs) - -I was with Jessica S., and Lydia. We were walking next to a Boys and Girls Club building in one of the neighborhoods when Jessica S. got a woman saved.  The lady asked us if we would come and pray with some of her friends that were sitting on the porch.  One lady had a broken leg and had to have a walker to get around.  We laid hands on her and prayed.  We told her to do what she couldn’t get up and walk.  I grabbed the walker myself and she walked across the porch and back and was yelling and thanking God because she couldn't do that before. After that, she and her friend both prayed the prayer of salvation.

Give Me That Cane!

Jessica (15 yrs) - I was with Shelby and we ran into a guy named George who had arthritis in one leg. He said he was already saved. He was walking with a cane in downtown Augusta. We asked him if he believed in healing and he said “Yea of course I believe God can heal me.” Shelby and I laid hands on his leg in the name of Jesus. We took his cane from him and told him to do something he couldn’t do before. He started jogging and left with cane tucked up under his arm!

Grayson (13 yrs) - -I was with Jessi, Tori, and Wesley. We met a lady who was already saved. She had a cane and said she had rheumatoid arthritis in her leg, knee, and calf. If she walked any distance without her cane she would fall. We prayed with her and then walked with her ¼ mile around the walking track without cane.  She was completely healed!

Deaf Ears Unstopped!

Harry (14 yrs) - I was at Harrisburg. I came up to this older guy who was probably in his 70’s. His name was Albert.  I started talking to him and noticed he had bad hearing.  I had trouble talking to him about healing because he couldn’t hear me.  I laid hands on him and there was a little improvement. Then I laid hands on him again and commanded the deafness to go.  Suddenly, he was able hear me!  I presented the gospel and he prayed the prayer of salvation.

Blind Eyes Opened!

Jessica (15 yrs) - Shelby and I were in downtown Augusta and came across a guy named Bob. He was legally blind and had a guide and stick to help him get around.  We talked to him about salvation and led him and his guide (William) in the prayer of salvation. Then we asked him about his eyes. He said he could see shapes but not see anything clearly.  He had on sunglasses.  We spoke over his eyes and told them to clear up. He removed his sunglasses and could read the words “Camp Overflow 2010” on Shelby’s t-shirt.

Wobbly Legs Strengthened!

Tori (18 yrs) - I was in East Augusta Commons with Miss Janie. We came across a woman on her porch, holding on to a post. Her legs were wobbling.  She told us she had to use a walker to walk or she would collapse.  I shared that Jesus went about doing good and healing all that were sick and He sent us to do the same.  I asked her if she wanted to be free of that walker, she declared, "More than anything!"  I encouraged her to do something she couldn’t do before. Her legs started to wobble even more. After I laid hands on her I asked her what was going on with her and she said her legs felt lighter and normally they would feel heavy and painful. I told her that when Jesus prayed for someone they acted out their faith by doing something they couldn’t do before. We went inside and she held my hand and I told her to walk. She started to take a step and I let go of her hand and she started to parade around her living room with hands lifted high praising God. I than asked her if she knew she was going to heaven when she died; she said no. I shared the gospel quickly with her and she prayed the prayer of salvation. She was very grateful!

Residual Miracle

PNatey (30 yrs) - As a youth pastor and leader in the body of Christ, I have the unique mission of empowering young people to give life as they are bold witnesses for Christ. And I'm honored to write that the mission is happening! Praise God for students who are unashamed and fearless when it comes to reaching people. One day I was out with a number of students in Dogwood Terrace. We came across a large group of people (about 30) and we all split off to talk to folks and minister to them. I cornered a couple of older ladies and asked them if they needed prayer. One of them asked me to pray for a rison that she had under her arm. It had caused her pain for several weeks and would not go away. I spoke to the pain and commanded it to leave...and it did! She was so ecstatic. Immediately after I prayed, the other lady said, "Wow! My headache is gone, too!" That's what we call a residual miracle! I didn't even pray specifically for her, but the power of God flowed through her as well. They were both excited about what God had done and accepted Christ as their Savior right on the spot.

Clayton (20 yrs)- I made my way over to a house, where a man was sitting on his porch reading. I approached him, introduced myself, and offered prayer. He asked for prayer for his family and for healing. he suffered from constant pain due to arthritis in both hands and was unable to straighten his hands or make a fist. I layed my hands on his, and prayed for healing. I prayed a total of three times and each time I asked "How do they feel?" He tried to move his hands and told me that the pain was getting better. I proceeded to explain to him about Jesus but he stopped me to say, "I don't feel any pain in my hands." He stretched out his hands and clenched them into fists. After witnessing his own healing, he was thoroughly open to what I had to tell him about the gospel and I was able to lead him in the prayer of salvation.

Fire Ants

Jason- My team and I were in Harrisburg, when I noticed a man walking down the street with what appeared to be blisters all over his arms. When I asked him about it, he explained that the "blisters" were actually fire ants bites. He said the doctors had given him some prescription steriods to dry the poison out, but they had no affect. With his consent, I prayed for the healing of his arms. I said "amen" and opened my eyes; the bites were gone! The man was shocked and speechless. He then gave me a hug and went on his way.

The Unexpected

Cathy LaMunion- I met a named Chris on Saturday, July 17. I led him to his Savior, Jesus, in prayer thinking that I would never see him again; resting assured that he was saved!

However, one week later our paths crossed again and I knew immediately something was different about him. I confronted him and had to press him to share the difference with me. he proceeded to tell me that since he accepted Jesus, he had not been out clubbing or to any bars. the desire was gone! I had the opportunity to pray with him again; but this time about getting a job. I encouraged him to keep believing that God was going to take care of him. I can't wait to see him again and here him testify about the great job that I know the Lord has given him.
