Man Deaf from Birth Healed
Dianne had asked me to come and pray for a man named Luis who is about 30 years old and who had been deaf from birth. We confirmed that he had been deaf from birth with those who were with him and knew him well. I put anointing oil on my fingers, put them into his ears and in Spanish began to command that his ears would open in the name of Jesus. Dianne, the local pastor, some children and others joined me in praying for him. After praying for him the first time, I checked both ears by snapping my fingers and asking if he could hear me snapping. With a bit of shock and a lot of joy he motioned that he could now hear out of his left ear. Calling for Jesse and others to come join us and press in for a complete healing. After praying for him a second time and testing both ears by again snapping my fingers, he clearly responded to the snapping in both ears and was totally healed. We all rejoiced in the Lord together. Luis even began to try and talk after never hearing or talking since birth! I told the pastor that they would need to work with Luis and help him learn how to talk as they would teach a child. Again, THIS MAN HAD NEVER HEARD OUT OF HIS EARS SINCE BIRTH AND CAN HEAR NOW!!! Glory to God!!!
Our team was interspersed throughout the crowd praying for the sick and saw healing after healing take place. As this happened, many others on the outskirts began to beg for us to pray for their healing as well. I wonder if that is how Jesus felt with the crowds thronging him to receive their healing as well? One lady asked if we would pray for a tumor and pain in her left breast and a bladder problem. I had her put her hand on her chest and had the women who were with me on her team place their hands on hers. I told her that she was going to feel something like fire as we prayed for her. After we prayed, she was overwhelmed with joy, thanking Jesus for her healing as she exclaimed that while we were praying for her she felt something taking place inside of her body. This lady is now pain free. These are only a couple of stories of how healing and miracles are breaking forth here in Peru. Tonight we will have an outreach in the same plaza at the same time. Many of those who were healed will bring their friends and family to also receive God’s touch. We want to delve deeper with them into the fact that God wants to heal them spiritually as well. Would you pray that God would open the doors for that to take place?
