Overhaul

Guatemala

Most of the time when praying for people, we may pray two or three times before seeing complete healing. They may feel better after the first prayer and the healing will continue the more we pray, but this was not the case for Gabor, a mature Mayan gentlemen. He received an overhaul by Jesus. 

Years of hard labor was heavily marked on Gabor’s face as he approached a team member and myself. The interpreter soon realized that one of his ailments was deafness in one ear, as he screamed loudly for the sweet gentlemen to hear him. 

Despite the loud noise of our interpreter, this gentle man standing before us spoke in a soft tone. Good thing he did, because he continued to explain a series of painful places in his body. One of which was his prostate area. The other was in his esophagus. Both of which prevented him from sleeping at night. 

If that wasn’t enough, Gabor continued, “As long as we are here tonight, let’s take care of all the sickness. It’s hard for me to see too.” Gabor was living up to the meaning of his name, “God’s bravest man.” His faith stood tall and God was listening.

“God forgives all our sins and heals all of our diseases.”  Psalms 103:3   

One by one, we tested each ailment.  Gabor was experiencing issues with his vision.  We gave him a piece of paper with writing on it at a normal font and he could not read it. When we asked him loudly to read a large sign with large font, he could read it with no issues. He also shared that he was in a lot of pain in the two previous areas mentioned. 

So, we began to pray one by one for each ailment.

After we prayed, we tested each area of his body for healing. First we tested his ears. The interpreter stood behind Gabor and said, “Can you hear me?”  Yes, came the answer.  Then the interpreter moved back a few steps and asked a different question.  Soon smiles began to form on our faces, Gabor answered immediately.  Still again, the interpreter moved several feet back and the echoing words confirmed that God had healed Gabor’s hearing.

Then we asked about the pain in his esophagus and prostate area – all pain was gone!

Go ahead…. Take a minute to wipe the tears and jump around the room.  That’s what we were doing!  But, it’s not over.

Remember, his eyes….Gabor couldn’t read a normal font size.  We gave him the same piece of paper and asked him to read it.  He could see the normal font size now.

This man walked away with new eyesight, new hearing, no pain in his prostate or esophagus!  God heals ALL of our diseases!

Seeing is Believing

Guatemala

Her head was hanging so low and covered by her black silky hair, that I wasn’t sure how Valeria could see her next step as she slowly shuffled towards me and a friend. We could tell that she came wearing her best clothing and possibly the only nice clothing she owned.  Through her shame Valeria explained how she could not read the assignments that her teachers were giving her at school. 

Tears began to form in this young Mayan girl’s eyes as she continued, “The doctor said my eyesight is bad and reading glasses won’t even help me.”

I could barely see her eyes as her long, beautiful hair covered her face.  “Can you look at me, Valeria?” I asked. 

She raised her head with a smile as I explained how beautiful she was.  We gave her a piece of paper to read, but she could not see the words.  So, we prayed that the same God who healed the blind man would heal this teenager’s eyesight.

After prayer, we gave the paper back to her to read again.  Soon rivers of tears flooded her face as she raised her head up high in awe.  Valeria could now read the letters on the page before her.  Not only did she receive her eyesight, she also received her confidence back.

God is still the same yesterday, today and forever.  He is the God who heals.  

Thank you, Jesus!
