PNatey (30 yrs) - As a youth pastor, I often get the opportunity to speak for chapel services at various Christian schools or clubs. I was at Hope Christian School for their second chapel service of the school year and I had a specific message for them about being a witness through the Show and Tell Gospel based on Jesus' words in Acts 1:8 and what he meant by the word witness. The gospel is meant to be told and demonstrated through the divine seal of miracles and supernatural gifts. After the message, I told them we'd have a demonstration. Little did they know that they would be the ones demonstrating my message. By the word of knowledge, I called out those with neck pain. There were 3 students who came forward for healing in this area. I called for 3 students who believed my message was true and were willing to pray for those who had come forward for healing. Three brave students stepped up and I coached them through working a miracle. All 3 students were healed instantly. We continued to have a variety of instant healings including a girl with ringing in her right ear, a guy with heart problems who was told he'd need surgery within the year or there'd be a 50% chance he'd die, a girl with pain in her knee and a guy with two sprained fingers. All of these students were healed through other students who were bold enough to step out of their comfort zone and minister to their peers. Praise God for the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry!
