Saturday evening

During the Saturday evening meeting there was a prophetic word for someone who had a fear of a child dying. A woman came forward who was pregnant and Karen and Chloe got to pray with her. She was terrified of losing the baby after having already had two threatened miscarriages during the pregnancy. She had peace prayed over her and they declared life over the baby. Her face changed and she started to smile. She said she felt as peaceful about the pregnancy as she had done before any of the threatened miscarriages. She was also able to totally engage with God in worship without any sense of heaviness.

A woman who had experienced breast cancer was prayed for. She was on tablets after having had surgery that had gone wrong. She was left in a lot of pain with lots of ugly scar tissue. After praying for healing she said she knew that God could reach out to others through her as she has had that experience. It was an emotional time when she was able to spend a lot of time talking with a team member. The next day she came back to testify that when she went home and showered she noticed that all the pain had gone and all the scarring had also gone! She said that all the veins had come back up in her arms and hands that had collapsed during her chemotherapy! Praise God.

Treasure Hunting (Saturday)

Karen had clues of ‘intersection’, ‘street kid’ and ‘begging’ that led her to where her treasure was waiting. She spoke to him and was able to share the gospel with him. His story was that he would travel for two hours every day to get in to Durban so he could beg. One of the team was able to pray salvation with him in Zulu and when they asked him to tell them what had happened he told them in English that he had said he needed to get his life right with Jesus because he had messed up. He also said that he wanted to come to church but was apprehensive because he takes drugs. The team was able to communicate love and truth to him and prophesy a definite life plan over him. Please continue to pray for him that the connection remains.

Someone else had clues of ‘flowery hat’, ‘red’ and ‘sore feet’. When they met her, a white Afrikaans man on the team knelt down at her feet and prayed for her. The others on the team were able to explain how amazing that was as a gesture as a white man kneeling in front of a black woman expressed a cultural shift that wouldn’t have happened years ago. The woman was totally healed with all pain gone. She got up and walked round with a dance in her step!

Someone else had their hip healed on the treasure hunting day and was able to weight bear for the first time in three years.

Finishing off Friday...

During the Friday evening meeting one girl testified to having been covered in shame but that she had been released from it and since that time she had been able to share about Jesus with a friend.

John Balding prayed for a lady who regained her faith and was filled with the spirit. He also prayed for someone with an ankle problem who was totally healed.

An 18 year old boy received some very significant freedom after a traumatic incident three years ago. He had watched his father die, then shortly after had witnessed his mother being murdered in a hijack situation. Drew stood up to say that he would make no apologies for the disruption because he could see freedom coming for someone whose story he knew well. Later on in the weekend the lad stood up to tell us about how God had been waking him in the night to speak to him.
