A group of pastors came to our lodge this afternoon to bring us the report that their churches were flooded with new converts this morning! This is a wonderful indication that the seed of the Gospel has fallen on good soil here in Afikpo and will continue to produce fruit that will remain long after we have gone.
Tonight the crowd increased again to 225,000. Many thousands were born again and after the prayer for salvation, we prayed for the sick:
– A woman, deaf for 20 years demonstrated her sight with great joy (see picture)
– A man who was bent and unable to stand straight for the past 4 years was healed and stood perfectly upright.
– A man crippled for three years after a terrible stroke was healed
Tonight we also prayed for the thousands of prayer requests that have been sent in from around the world by our friends and partners. The huge crowd stretched out their hands and prayed that the long arm of the Lord would reach into every situation and meet every need.
Just before we left I pronounced a blessing over the people of Afikpo. With each declaration came the thundering reply “AMEN!” They have received the full benefits of the Gospel: Salvation, healing, deliverance, peace and blessing. The city we are leaving now is not the same one we found when we arrived five days ago – all glory to God!
Thank you for your prayers and financial support. We are laborers together in the Lord’s vineyard. We are on our way now to Dallas for Fire Storm USA. I hope to see you there.
