Thank you for your obedience to God's call

We have been watching the revival almost every night. My husband Rick is called as an evangelist, but just recently feeling a strong calling to really get out and get busy. He's been visiting a friend in a nursing home, who had a stroke & is paralyzed on one side, but the man hadn't accepted Jesus when Rick talked to him and quoted scripture from the Bible. Today Rick saw him again, but this time took the Soulwinning Script & the man repeated the prayer & asked Jesus into his heart. Also Rick prayed with him the last time he was there for healing and he is starting to walk and gets to go home this week. I have been praying for boldness myself, but haven't used the script yet. However, after watching the Great Awakening almost every night, I did step out in faith one night while at an Aldi store. The cashier was obviously in terrible pain and I asked if she hurt her back. She said her sciatic nerve was causing her awful pain, but she couldn't take time off because she had bills to pay. I told her I would pray for her, but as I was about to leave, Holy Spirit prompted me to "do it now." Right then she ran out of register tape so while she changed it, I just put my hand on her back and prayed for her healing right there. She thanked me & I left. I went back this week & the same lady waited on me. I asked how her back was & she got excited and said, "Oh, it's you, God Healed Me!" She said it felt somewhat better that same night, but still hurt so she continued herself to ask God to finish the healing so she could work. She went to bed and when she got up she was pain free and has been ever since. Praise The Lord! We are so excited about what God is doing. We have been desiring the move of the Holy Spirit as Jesus promised and are thrilled to see Him working through people everywhere. We are planning to come to Tampa on the 18th for the weekend to catch the fire and bring it back here to Michigan. We minister with Kingsway Fellowship International and live in Burtchville, MI. Thank you for your obedience to God's call.
