So, Sunday, we had a blast. It was really busy, but God blessed everyone who attended. It started in the morning prayer meeting. We arrived early enough to open up the church with Pastor Dennis and Kaku. The gang went to setup for Promiseland and I went to the morning prayer meeting. I had a chance to pray for a couple of people and I”m waiting to hear what the Lord has done for them. One man I prayed for has problems with his gums. So I prayed and expect God to heal him there. I also prayed for a woman with the typical Japanese problem… lower back/hip/knee/joint pain. One of her legs was out of alignment and as I prayed, her body came into alignment and her pain was gone. Some people call this growing a leg out, but it’s really alignment. And one of my church members taught me that you can self-pray for this problem. He just lies on his back and asks Jesus to come and bless him, align his back, and commands healing. He feels his muscles stretch and then relax and the pain leaves him too.
After the prayer meeting everyone went to the sanctuary for church service. Worship was awesome. Once again, we sang English, Japanese, and Portuguese because of the truly international church. That’s when the kids said they really felt the presence of the Lord there.
Sheri and the gang spent the morning ministering to the kids. I’ll have to get the details from them. But they had a good time sharing a typical Promiseland Sunday School Lesson with the kids.
I had a great time sharing about the journey God has me on as I learn about miracles and healing. A copy of the message is on this website. Just click the listen button in the side bar.
At the close of the service, I led the congregation in praying for their own members who desired healing. They prayed for about 14 people and most said their pain or illness reduced or went away. なくなった。 is a phrase I heard regularly. びっくりした。could also be heard from time to time.
I also believe God is looking for excuses to bless people.
Ryan started in on the construction project which keeps snowballing into a bigger and bigger undertaking the further along it goes. Here’s a couple of pics.
That evening we had a fun time at volleyball. Hopefully I’ll get to play again this weekend. Until next time… じゃまたね。
PS- it might help to learn a little bit of Japanese, and I suggest this excellent website to assist you.
