We cannot work in God's harvest fields without
One of the objectives is to meet regularly to pray with one another,
particularly about practical Mission and outreach to those who are
not yet Christians.
We have seen God do amazing things on these missions. Here are just
a couple, but there must be thousands over the years.
• At the Walk National Forest mission, a lady had prayer for a trapped nerve that had
prevented her from lifting her arm above shoulder level for years.
By the next day, she was healed and full mobility was restored.
• There was a short mission to Maasailand in equatorial Kenya in 2009,
where there had been a
severe drought in the land for 2 years, and the mostly-rural
economy was severely hit.
The team gave an evangelistic talk to 300
prisoners in Narok Prison, in the open-air central compound. Just
after we arrived, the
prison chaplain introduced the team to the prisoners and said, "These people
have come from England, to bring you the word of God, and to bring
rain." One second later, the rain hit us. The prisoners burst
into spontaneous applause.
The rain continued and, after
2 or 3 minutes, the men were getting rather wet, and started to
drift back to the cell blocks.
The chaplain prayed, "Lord, we need to
give your word to your people. Would you please stop the rain?"
within a minute, the rain just faded away.
Needless to say, God had their attention that day, and 30
prisoners gave their lives to Christ.
