May, 2011 Update

May was an exciting month for Dawn and I on the USA mission field. Here is a brief list of some of the highlights from the month.

  • Numerous people received Jesus as Savior
  • Numerous baptisms in Holy Spirit—evidenced by speaking in tongues (See Acts 19:1-6.)
  • Woman delivered of drugs
  • Prayer marched in Georgetown, Washington D.C., and Gettysburg
  • Preached in Pennsylvanian Church
  • Amish sightings
Mission Within a Mission
The state of Pennsylvania had been placed on our hearts. Therefore, Dawn and I made a trip into central PA. On our travels, we were able to visit Washington D.C. and Gettysburg before arriving at our destination.

D.C. is a fabulous city. We were able to prayer march many places in this city. We also talked with a number of people.

It was our first time to go to Gettysburg. We went on a wonderful self-guided auto tour of the region. The battle at Gettysburg resulted in 51,000 deaths in three days.

In central PA, we were given the honor and privilege to preach at a wonderful church. They are a great group of people. It was such a wonderful time for us to be a part of what God is doing in this area.

Dawn and I thought it would be a cultural experience to see some Amish people while in central PA. Brian, one of our new friends, acted as our tour guide to go “Amish sighting.” We drove all around, and saw several of them. We saw them riding in their horse-and-buggies, outside their homes on their farms, and riding their bikes in their 1900s style clothing. It was cultural shock to see.

I actually saw an Amish man in an electric wheelchair. I decided it would be fun to pray for him. I stepped out of the car and said, “Excuse me. I am a lover of Jesus. I just felt compelled to ask you if I could pray for healing for you.”

“Uh... Ok, I guess,” he replied.

I said, “In the name of Jesus Christ, I speak healing to your body. I command any spirit of infirmity to go to the cross in the name of Jesus. Are you feeling anything going on in your body right now?”

“Well, I’ll just leave that up to Jesus,” he responded.

I could tell we were at theological differences. I said, “Sometimes, Jesus uses people to heal others or act as ministers. God used the apostles in the book of Acts to heal other people in the name of Jesus.”

I prayed for him again, but we didn’t see any physical changes occur. Despite our differences in many ways, he was radiating a smile afterwards. Both Dawn and Brian noticed that as well. God indeed touched him in some way or another.
