I haven't been writing testimonies in a while. There have been so many amazing encounters of God's love as we've been going out and living a lifestyle of manifesting the Kingdom. Just haven't had much time to write things down.
Here's something that happened recently
Something that happened this saturday. We went to the Waterfront and found a group of kids on bikes. God revealed things about one of their pasts and he freaked out and then Randy got some incredible words over another kid. One of their shoulders got healed and two of them gave their lives to Jesus.
After that, we went up to the entrance to a beer fest. There was a group of people hanging out and Randy prayed over one guys feet and he was healed. One of the guys had a shoulder issue and as soon as I started to pray he fell on the ground laughing at me. I asked him to check it and he said "Ok, I'm freaking out now, what the @(#*. He started tripping and asking why his shoulder felt better so I shared Jesus with them.
I just went to India and Indonesia. In India I met a pastor who has lead over 500 Muslims to the Lord in the last month. He shared some amazing testimonies that are too amazing not to share. He kept receiving threats to stop preaching the Gospel and one day, one guy pulled out a gun and shot him close range, but the bullet never touched him. He also had a suicide bomber come in his church and as soon as he walked in his head felt hot and he ran to find water saying his head was on fire. Afterword he repented and told the pastor to call the police because he was there to bomb them.
All through out Indonesia, God did many miracles, restoring sight, opening deaf ears, but one thing happened at a Church in Makassar, God's manifest presence showed up and the whole church got on their knees in tears crying for the great commission. Little kids, around 3 to 5 years old ran to the front and started crying out for God. Many people got healed, even demons cast out of people. Another island we went to we got to share a Muslim family, we prayed for one ladies back and all the pain left so she started getting her neighbors and they were getting healed also, two ladies had their eyesight restored, and I got to share Jesus when about 20 people came around us. They were touched, but no one responded to the Gospel. As I was praying why, I heard the Lord say, "Count the cost" For them, this can be a life and death decision.
God was moving powerfully through the trip, but it was bittersweet. One thing that I was faced with that hit me more than it ever have. This Gospel costs something. I heard a story of one boy that gave his life to the Lord, he went home his parents found out because he was so joyful. They killed him. and and came home and his p Every Island we went to, I heard horrific stories of persecution from genocide on an island, to rape and murder on another. When I flew back, a pastor sent me pictures of three churches that got bombed by suicide bombers. In Indonesia, it's 80% Muslim and it is illegal to share your faith in Public. In America, we can open air preach with little to no repercussions. It's easy to get that people have laid down their lives to give us what we have.
Saturday outreach was so amazing. As soon as we parked, God had a set up. We brought an ice chest of food to a handful of homeless hanging out and we started praying. One lady's ankle got better, another lady had a stab on her leg with scissors that was painful to touch and we prayed and she couldn't find it anymore. After that, I saw a picture of a shoulder so I asked her and she tore her rotator cuff and had limited movement for years, After a quick prayer she had full movement and no pain. I asked her if she knew Jesus and she said no so we shared the Gospel with her and she started crying and gave her life to Jesus.
After that, we hung out at Skidmore park and worshiped Jesus while handing out food and saw many other miracles, a guys knee was healed, a lady couldn't move her thumb and had constant wrist pain was healed and gained full movement. The prophetic was flowing as we talked with a handful of teenagers. God is so Good! I love how He touches people.
Saturday outreach was explosive. I had a clear picture of Skidmore fountain at Saturday Market in Portland, last Saturday some epic things happened in the same spot and we filmed a part of the movie Heaven to Earth. When we got there, there was a conflict between the cops and the homeless, so we ended up praying for the cops and for the homeless. One guys neck got healed.
There were some street performers and one guy was contorting his body in unusual ways. After the show, I asked him if he had any pain in his body and he said his back was hurting but didn’t want me to pray. He said my prayer would mess with his energies and he needs to be in a certain state to perform. I told him that I’m not using energy but my friend the Holy Spirit loves to heal people, and then I said, “in fact, some times he just likes to heal people, check your back and let me know how it feels.” He looked shocked and said all the pain was gone in his back.
Right beside him, there were two ladies painting faces. I got to pray over them and one girl had constant pain in her arm and leg. After a quick prayer all the pain left. The other girl had pain in her back from a car accident and one leg that was shorter because her hips were out of line, Her leg shot even with no shoes on and all the pain left. Just then, another lady came up with tattoos on her face and started talking to them. She complained that her gout was hurting so I asked if I could pray. After praying, tears started streaming down her face and she said all the pain left. Then her friend asked if I could pray that he could get off drugs and she wanted to pray that too. She asked us to wait for her husband because he wanted prayer to get off drugs also so Nicole prayed over him.
We went to the Waterfront and ran into a group we ministered to Wednesday night. One guys said he back was still better and we prayed for him to be filled with the Spirit. After that, we prayed over a guy raising money for missions in Nigeria, he said when we prayed he felt something flow through his whole body.
After that, Peggy’s son and sons friends joined me and we went up to a couple with a baby and asked if we could pray. He said yes and I got a word over his back. He had back pain and it instantly left. Then I heard in my heart popping and knee so I asked him what was going on with his knee. He said he popped it out of place the day before and it was in constant pain. We all prayed over him and he said the second I put my hand on his knee he felt it shift back in place. All the pain left and the Lord revealed his detailed plan for his life and he was blown away how much confirmation that brought him. He wanted to be a drug counselor, and I saw a picture of him breaking chains of addiction. So many other things happened that day also.
I felt the theme of the day was going to be standing in peace and joy and having fun with God as He makes Himself known in power and love and that is exactly what happened. God is so good! Yay Jesus!
Outreach was amazing! A few things that happened, we went up to a group of teenagers and I asked if I could pray, one of the guys said yes, so as I started praying, the prophetic started flowing and he was tripping out like "bro! There is no way you could know that about me, you don't know me!" Then I started getting words over the girl about her career and things about who she is. After that, I found out she didn't know Jesus but really wanted to so she gave her life to Jesus and felt fire fill her heart. Chelsea started getting words about the other girl and she was getting impacted. Then I started getting words of knowledge over one of the girls ankles and had the girl who just gave her life to Jesus pray and she was instantly healed of tendonitis in her ankle, then I asked if anyone had back pain in their lower back and the girl who just prayed had back pain, her leg was shorter so I had the first guy we prayed for pray and her leg shot out. After that, he said he got shot in the leg 3 years ago and was bit by a dog there and lost feeling in his calf because of nerve damage. We had the girl Chelsea was getting words over pray and he was instantly healed. He started calling his friends telling them to come to the park and get healed and one guy showed up kind of making fun of the whole thing, then he got healed.
After that, we went to Pioneer Square and I saw three guys, Chelsea and I started getting words over them and one of them invited Jesus to live in his heart. After that we met an awesome guy who was going through a lot of hard things. He was missing his toenail so we prayed for it to grow back, it didn't grow back right away but the pain stopped and then we prayed over him and got so many prophetic words to encourage him. He was stuck in major depression and had been contemplating suicide. He gave his life to Jesus and we got to have lunch with him. Praise the Lord!
Saturday, we went to the waterfront in Portland, and so many incredible things happened. Many people were healed, prophesied over, and some even brought to tears because of the love of God. A few people gave their lives to Jesus and the group that went out with me were all stepping out and seeing God touch lives around them.
One testimony I want to share from Saturday, we came across a guy whose leg was in a brace. Dimitri and I prayed and nothing happened, he said he was going to have to get surgery. He had a look in his eyes like he was ready to kill someone and he was filled with anger and forgiveness because of wrongs committed against him. Holy Spirit said give him something, so I pulled out a little bit of money and Dimitri did too and we blessed him and prayed over him.
As we were praying, Julie asked, "Hows your heart?" He said, not in a good place and then started saying how he walked away from the Lord and had so much anger against his ex, then Paul and Julie asked if he would like to get rid of that anger and unforgiveness and he said yes. As we prayed, he broke down crying as Paul released the Fathers love over him and then, Dimitri and I had some prophetic words about how God made him and situations that closed his heart.
We prayed over his knee again and the pain went down from a 10 to a 5, and then we prayed a two more times and the pain completely left. Then, he took off his heavy backpack and said, this is what you did for me, referring to his burdens. He gave his life back to Jesus and felt heat fill his body as we prayed for him to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Yay Jesus.
So Saturday before we even went out witnessing healing was breaking out. Someones shoulder got healed, and we started playing around with God's presence. We prayed over a tissue and it healed someone, sang over someones leg and it grew out. Fun way to start the day.
We went to Lloyd Center/Holladay park and started going around praying over people and blessing them. We went up to a large group and I asked if I could bless them and many of them said they were atheists. One girl said she had ear pain but wouldn't let me pray. A little while later a guy was hanging out with the girl with ear pain and sees me and brings her over to me. He starts testifying about how Jesus healed him through us a while back. We prayed over her and not sure if her ear got better or not but the Lord started revealing alot of things about her and she was tripping out. I shared the Gospel with her and told her how much Jesus loves her.
After that, we went over to a lady and I kept hearing disks in my heart. I asked her and she had slipped disks and two knee replacements. She sat down and one leg was 2 inches shorter than the other. Jesus grew it out and she started crying. She said she knew Jesus but after talking to her a bit she didn't really know Him and had never read the bible. She invited Jesus to live in her heart in tears and said she felt everything change.
After that, two from our team were praying over a guy in a group and we went over and started ministering to them. he messed up his back so we were praying for healing and then a guy starts yelling and being loud to mock us. He came up and tried to interrupt but as soon as he touched Nicole's shoulder he started praying a blessing for us and then got on his knees asking the Father for forgiveness because he came up to mock us. Then he started ministering to the guy we were praying for telling him to listen to us. and he started crying. His back got healed also. Then the guy who tried interrupting said, "I came up to mock you guys and Holy Spirit slapped me in the face."
After that we prayed over a guys ankles and he freaked out as the popping stopped. We also prayed over a girl and I got a word about her knee. She had knee pain and popping which instantly disappeared and I got a word about her writing poetry which turned out to be true. Oh ya, and we also prayed over a whole family in the mall and the grandma had pain in her side that went away after we prayed.
God is so awesome!
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!

Saturday we went to Vancouver mall and went around praying over people. We started talking to a friend who works at one of the cell phone places and I told him about someone’s wrist getting healed the other day. His co-worker said she had that problem and I prayed a few times and there was no break through, then “she said I guess got hates me.” I prayed again and the pain lessened, then again and the pain left and there was no more popping. She said she was a believer and recently was baptized.
After that, We came across these two guys Eugene and Tony. The two guys in the picture. I asked if we could pray for them and they were so excited for prayer. We prayed and got prophetic words over both of them. Chelsea got a word about Tony being a counselor and some other things and Michael got a word about his testimony and the direction God was taking him. Tony said God was speaking directly through us and he asked us if we wanted to hear his testimony and turns out he was about to read it for his friend. This was the first time he wrote out his testimony and the Lord provided him an audience. He had such a powerful testimony and the Lord is going to use him to touch so many people. After that, we prayed for his leg and it grew out even and he had something called drop foot where he couldn’t bend his ankle. After a few prayers he was able to bend it, praise the Lord! After that, Michael got a word about nightmares and they prayed over Eugene for breakthrough and he felt God’s presence. They both were in tears. Such an awesome encounter of God’s love being manifest.
We started walking and Holly and Michael prayed over a guy’s ankle in a boot and he said it felt better. Then, a lady walked by with horrible knee pain and I told her about what happened with drop foot and she was like really? After a quick prayer she started freaking out because her knee was completely better, then, we got to pray blessing over her and her friend. Right after that, there were two people sitting on a bench and the Lord revealed some things about each of them and I got to pray and bless them. The girl had pain in her thighs and started freaking out when all the pain left.
After that, we prayed over a few more people and came across two kids hanging out. I felt my knee vibrating so I asked one of them, Jason, if he had knee pain. His knee got instantly healed and then his back, and then his neck. The Lord revealed so many things about who he was and we prayed over him to experience God’s presence and he felt really lite. I asked him if he knew what being born again meant and he said no so we shared the Gospel with him and he gave his life to Jesus. He said normally he wouldn’t let anyone pray for him, but we are carrying something, this was real. He experienced a tangible change in his heart after he gave his life to Jesus. YAY Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, this was such an epic day. I was on a date with my wife and we went into a vitamin supplement store, one of the guys working there Cyrus, was talking to a lady and kept stretching his arm and mentioned that it hurt. We prayed for it and it was instantly better, then his wrist got healed. We prayed over the other guy who worked there, Daniel, and got some prophetic words over both of them. I asked if they had back pain and Cyrus had pain on one side. We checked his legs and his leg was almost an inch shorter, Daniel prayed and instantly his leg shot out and the back pain was gone. After that, the Lord flooded the place with His presence and revealed some deep prophetic words and callings. Daniel was so excited to give his life to Jesus. God is so good! He set this whole thing up. Then, the Lord put in my wife’s heart that if Cyrus prayed for her, her shoulders would be healed. He prayed and her shoulders have been better all night.
After that we were walking out and a guy was walking next to us. Chelsea asked if he had back pain and his neck and back were hurting really bad. She prayed and his back felt instantly better, after that we got some words over him and got to encourage him. He gave his life to Jesus also.
As we were leaving, there were three teenagers hanging out. I asked if I could bless them and they said yes, then the Lord started revealing things about each one of them. One of the guys, I saw a picture of him running from God and God pouring out blessing over him faster than he could run as well as things about his character and who God made him to be. He didn’t know Jesus and we got to see him get born again. When he did, he felt heat fill his chest and each one of them were impacted with the love of God.
Such a good way to start the new years! Lord, Father, praise You and thank You. I ask that this year many would come to know You, Lord Raise up more workers, more of Your children who believe in Your goodness, who believe in Your love and will stop for the person in front of them. I ask that You would empower whoever is reading this to spread Your Gospel in the power and love of the holy Spirit. Thank You in Jesus name.
Testimonies that bring glory to God.
