LICHTENSTEIN, GERMANY AND PARIS, FRANCE
My mother met me in Berlin, Germany. She came from South Africa to minister with me. This was an honor to me as my maternal grandmother’s family line is from Germany. It was special to spend some quality time together before we left for Lichtenstein (Old East Germany) to minister there. It is a beautiful area. It was interesting to see the affects the Berlin wall had but Praise the Lord for His freedom.
I remembered years ago my outreach team from the School of Ministry ministered in another part of Old East Germany and the people were very reserved. During the sharing time it seemed like they didn’t receive anything but then they just stayed long after the service ended and we just kept on prayer for them and loving on them. It was such a precious time. That was a picture of how your surroundings influence you as person. They were not free yet to express themselves, but they were on the journey. According to the laws they were free, but they themselves still needed to walk it out. The pastor shared how you were only allowed a certain distance from the wall. One night he was reading his Bible late at night. His home was not far from the wall. All of a sudden when the guards realized he was still up they pointed one of the big bright lights towards his house, shining into his room the whole night. He shared with us how he was struck by fear. In our lives we may be held back in an area due to something that happened to us, or our surroundings. There is freedom! We don’t need to be held back by those things. Romans 12:2 talks about the renewing of the mind. Our minds need to be renewed by His Truth. It is His Truth that sets us free.
We drove to another village to minister at a church there. The room was packed. My mother shared first and I could see how people were touched by her story. I then shared and felt the Lord wanted to heal people. I assumed the people were familiar with ministering to ones needing physical healing but then I saw a hesitance to pray for one another. The Lord then prompted me to ask who had pain in their lower backs. 6 people came to the front. I checked the first person’s legs and one was shorter than the other one. I called the people to come and watch, slowly people gathered around us. I held her legs in my hands and spoke to the leg to be released in Jesus Name. The leg moved and now both were the same length. People were amazed. God’s plan became more clear to me. Same happened with the next one and then I asked who wanted to pray for the next person. They were hesitant but then one lady said that she wanted to. Yes, the lady needed healing was healed and her legs were the same! We Faith was rising in the room. Others prayed for the last ones and they all received healing!! We continued to pray for people and after a while we released the meeting but nobody was leaving. The Lord’s Presence was so peaceful in the room. We continued to pray for people and we took oil and anointed their hands as a symbol that the Lord wants to use their hands. The meeting ended much later than the leaders expected.
Afterwards the leaders shared with us that the people in the room has never experience what they did that evening. They were surprised at the people from other churches who came and stayed. I love the Lord’s Presence. He is real and He heals people today, He transforms lives today. Jesus preached about the Kingdom and then He demonstrated the Kingdom by healing people. He commissioned us to do the same. Paul said that he didn’t come with persuasive words but with the demonstration of the power of God. I have a passion to see lives transformed, healed by the Power of God, by His love. I cannot make it happen, I can just yield my life to Him and believe that He is who He says He is and that He wants to touch people through my little life. I’m so incredibly depended on Him. He loves us with an everlasting love.
It was an honor to minister here as my maternal Grandfather’s family line is from France. The Lord even moved in Paris! The church I ministered in is in a historic building. On the way to the church I saw a picture of a river flowing into hearts. I was surprised, I did not really expect much to happen there!! I asked Holy Spirit if He wanted to move and He replied "of course I want to move" which again surprised me. I shared with the pastor what I was planning to share as he was planning to translate for me. In the end someone else translated for me and when I started to share the Lord changed the direction of what I wanted to share. Afterwards he told me that several people came to him and told him how good he planned to have me there that Sunday. He shared for 4 Sundays on the Father's Heart and my message was how to process and receive healing and ended with a focus on the Father's Heart. We were both encouraged as I had no idea!! The Lord knew!! I love Him so much!!!
During worship I felt the Lord wanted my mom and I to go around and simply hug people He highlights to us. The pastor said it was ok. Every person we hugged started to cry. It was amazing how His love was touching peoples’ hearts. Just a hug can change someone life forever!!
Ministry time was intense. People were sobbing. I felt the Lord lead me to ask the the pastor and other men on his team to come to the front to give father hugs and speak a father’s blessing over people. I didn't even need to encourage people to come, they just came. One man decided to lay on the floor after he received his hug and could not get up for a long time. The Lord was working on his heart. Wow, God moved in Paris. I’m so happy!! Incredibly breakthrough in peoples’ hearts. Thank you, Jesus.
