Saturday, we went out to Lloyd Center. There were people everywhere that were dressed as anime characters. We split up in two groups and Randy started talking to two people. One of the guys had pain in his stomach and he prayed and the pain instantly left which lead to sharing the Gospel with him. Liza was praying for peace over a girl that was at the table. Her eyes were glowing because of the contacts she was wearing. I joined in and she started feeling God’s presence. The Lord revealed some things about her and she opened up. She was going through a lot that year and really needed a release from anxiety and fear. She asked about homosexuality and I shared how I stand on the word and don’t agree with it, but I explained how that doesn’t stop me from loving her. I shared about how a relationship with Jesus changes us, He gives us the grace to change, and then I shared the Gospel with her. She was a back slid Christian. She opened up to me about some things too personal to share, but I was blessed to be able to walk her through forgiveness and deliverance and she felt the fire of God fill her and all the anxiety and fear leave. I gave her a hug and then heard the Lord say, “She used to have big plans that were stolen from her, tell her to dream again.” I shared that with her and her eyes started to water as she told me that every dream of the future she had would get shot down by her parents because they wanted her to work for them. I shared with her how God, her Daddy in heaven, wants to dream with her and empower her to live out those dreams. Such a powerful and precious God moment.
After that, we came across a guy who had messed up his hips. He was so ready to accept prayer and then after his leg grew out even and the pain left, he prayed for us and blessed us. Sitting down a few feet away was a young couple. I asked if I could bless them and pray for them and they said they were fine, so I asked if I could bless their year and they both were ok with that. I started getting words over the guy and the girl was affirming everything I said as accurate, then I got words over the girl about her character and her love for books. Then I asked her if she had heard of being born again. She gave her life to Jesus. Her boyfriend was already going to take her to Church the next day.
I noticed were two street kids sitting at a table. They overheard my friend praying for someone and when I walked up, one of the guys responded, "I don't want Your @^!&@(* Jesus, Get the !@(# out of my face." After he said that I asked if I could buy them food and they both were confused. One of them asked if I could get him a piece of pizza, while the other an Orange Julius. I tried getting a word of knowledge and asked if anyone had any issue with their collarbone, and none of them did. The guy who cussed me out apologized and told me he was just in a situation with a street preacher who when he asked questions started yelling at him. He had an infected dog bite on his leg, and I prayed and nothing happened then. I spent over an hour talking with them about Jesus and shared my testimony with them. I also got to be a friend and listened to a guy who really needed to be heard. He thanked me for talking with him and hugged me. It was an amazing experience. Someone who was witnessing with us said that she saw a glory cloud over us while I was talking to them.

Today the prophetic was flowing like crazy. At Braganza these two girls were highlighted to me so I go up to them and turns out one of them gets crazy migraines and every two years has to have surgery. She said the pain was 7/10 after we prayed she said it left. We got a few prophetic words and I got to share a bit of my testimony with them.
After that we were walking and I saw a girl with a boot named Ashley. She said she tore her ligaments, I shared a testimony about that and she said she would love prayer. We prayed and she said it felt looser and a bit better. We prayed again and it got a bit better. I got a word of knowledge about back pain and her shot out even. We spent some time with her talking and blessing her. She asked us to pray for her brother who had a mental illness also.
After that we went into Hollister for some reason and felt something off in the atmosphere. We walked out and hung out for awhile and Holly got an impression for arthritis in someone's wrist. We stand there and I walk up too two ladies and ask them if they needed prayer. One said no and after a bit the other said she lives with wrist pain. I asked if it was arthritis and Holly came over and started praying over her, while they were doing that her friend was watching from a distance. I asked God to give me something to encourage her. I go up to her and asked her for her name and started prophesying over her. IShe asked me how I knew all that and that opened a door to talk about Gods love. She was receptive and I saw seeds being planted. Her friends wrist didn't get healed but she was encouraged.
A few other things happened. I just don't remember. We were walking back to meet up with the rest of the group and these two girls were super highlighted. I scared one of them as I approached her. I apologized and asked them if they had any pain. One girls name was Mimi and the other Monika. Mimi said she had 7/10 shoulder pain. I prayed 3 times and all the pain left! Her reaction was awesome after she got healed God gave me her mail to read. I got a few words over Monika but not as in depth as Mimi. As that was happening Julie and Holly had an amazing encounter. I don't remember what happened but Holly will write it in the comments.
It was a amazing day playing with Jesus. One of my favorite things is seeing people's reactions when they get healed or someone gets a crazy word over them. Jesus is the best! He loves everyone. I pray these testimonies bless you guys and encourage you to step out and take risks.

Beautifully testimony during Saturday discipleship outreach with Joshua, Chelsea, Holly, Michael, Liza, Margaritka, Lily, Liz, Julie, yesterday! Chelsea was praying for 2 little boys for her mom's back to be healed, and not long after I walked over once the boys left and I soon found out they and the mom were homeless. Quickly I asked her where they went after I walked over, and chased after them and joined a few others in our disciple group.
Wanting to bless them financially we asked around where an ATM was. As we walked over the 2 boys mother, and sister who were all homeless sleeping in a van happened to be right by the ATM in the food court. I subtly walked past them to pull money out for them not to know right away since boys had just starting talking to there mom. I turned around blessed them and she burst into tears as I share Jesus' love for her and the family and that this is just a small portion of His love for her. Well at this point perfect timing, the rest of our group was coming up and started overwhelming the love of JESUS to her more from the group and 2 other sisters in Christ quickly went to ATM and joined in. As the mom of the 2 boys was already wrecked by the love of Jesus, she became even more overwhelmed in more tears from Jesus love. We were able to cover 2 nights stay in motel between everything. As this beautiful domino effect of Jesus' love continued, another sis in Christ from the group stepped forward and was getting words of knowledge about her struggles, but shared that God was going to change her circumstances, and help her overcome her and her family's financial hardship. Jesus is amazing!
We simply get the privilege to co-labor with our big brother Jesus, and share the love of Him to radically impact people's lives causing them to see His goodness. This became one of many beautiful blessing testimonies of the day. Yay Jesus! The good news, and love of God is what leads people to repentance!

From moment we entered the Lloyd Center, I kept feeling a nudge to go to a vitamin store with Chelsea. When i finally said something to her, I looked down one floor below us and saw a GNC store. We decided to try that one and see what happens. We walked in and asked a couple people, and no one had anything. Walking to the back of the store, Chelsea was asking this one guy if he had any pain, and when I arrived at the scene, I quickly learned that his right ankle hurt. Both Chelsea and myself pointed at his ankle and prayed. He told us no change.
We prayed again, Chelsea put her hand on his leg. When he checked it out he had a surprised yet embarrassed expression on his face, "OMG, what the....OMG!" He claimed he could still find a piece of pain but he kept moving it like it was healed. Chelsea told me that as we walked away she looked back and he was still moving his ankle in disbelief. We testified to the clerks and they were surprised and weren't sure what to make of it, they had never heard of such a thing! haha Yay Jesus!
