On Wednesday, we had a certain couple over for dinner at our home. The lady told us that when she first saw us at the church she went home and told her fiance that she had seen us (we didn’t talk) and that she felt like we would change her life. She was fairly new at church. She then attended the prayer rally where God saved, delivered and filled her with the Holy Spirit. The new found faith was not easily received by her fiance so they separated. She began to attend the Tuesday prayer meetings we host and we encouraged her to be in the Word only to find out that she had already read 30 chapters. She is just feasting on the Word! Well, her fiance came back and decided he will go to church with her. They were there last Saturday when Pitana preached and took it all in. They came back for the same message on Sunday morning! What hunger for God! God worked some healing for her from her past as she came forward for prayer on Saturday. The man came over to us and explained that all this was new to him and he was wondering if we could come alongside him and walk with him in this new path. We were delighted and that is how we invited them over. 1 Corinthians 2:4 says:’And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power.’.
One of the things that got this man’s attention is how real and powerful God is. He had had a high fever. His fiance put her hands on him and prayed for him and the fever left! Hallelujah!
Don’t be afraid to lay hands on the sick. God can take care of his reputation!
We had a good visit sharing a meal, testimonies and life stories. As we shared a testimony, they asked a question which led to Pitana to explain what it means to be born again. Before he could conclude the man exclaimed, ‘I need that. That is what I need!’ So right there and then, in our living room, Pitana led him through prayer and he received Jesus into his life! Hallelujah! Glory be to God! We all rejoiced, the children shouted for joy, the man’s heart flooded with love and he began to express his love and gratitude. What a change!
