During the Equip+Activate street activation session, a group of us went to a skatepark in Portland to share Jesus, and we ended up talking to a man named James. James had pain in his neck, back, and knee. As we prayed the Holy Spirit came, and the pain began to leave. I could feel the heart of the Father for him, so I shared the gospel. He said he was religious growing up and believed in God but didn’t want to go back to church.
A group of us drove to Tigard and we were walking around an outlet mall, and I saw about four high school aged girls walking towards us and I felt the Holy Spirit tell me to go talk to them. I went over and I immediately heard one of the Lord tell me one of them struggles with anxiety and depression.
Since the worship encounter night my youth group, Youth Nation @ Capital Christian Center. We had several students encounter the baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire. Since the worship night, we have seen 15 salvations, and 10 people recommit their lives to Jesus. The students have never experienced that type of service at the worship encounter night!
oday during the Compassion To Action Equip+Activate outreach, while walking past a strip mall, a massage business was highlighted to us. We went inside and started talking to the lady behind the front desk and explained to her that we felt led to come in and bless and pray over her and the business. She started crying behind the front desk and said she believed in Jesus. Right before we had come in
At the Compassion To Action Equip+Activate event during activation time on the streets, I went to Home Depot. I started talking to a man and received a word of knowledge that seven days before something dramatic had happened. He shared with me that he had a family member who had died the week before. I then presented ‘Jesus at the Door’ and prayed with him. Still, at Home Depot, I prayed for a man’s back
At the Compassion To Action Equip+Activate event during activation time on the streets, the Lord spoke to me to go across the street and stand next to a street sign. When we did, a guy stopped his bike there. We went through ‘Jesus at the Door,’ and
At the Compassion To Action Equip+Activate event, I led two teenagers to the Lord at Bridgeport Village! I sensed they were open and ready when we started talking to them. I used the ‘Jesus at the Door’ card, and they both accepted Jesus on the spot! Then a bit later I talked to another boy who was with his stepdad. The boy said he was an atheist. I got to pray for him and went through the ‘Jesus at the Door’ card with him as well.
At the Compassion To Action Equip+Activate event during activation time on the streets, my team and I went to a College in Salem, OR to share the gospel. While we were there, I asked the Holy Spirit for Words of Knowledge for pain in people's bodies. As I was walking past a couple, I heard the word “knee.” I started talking to them and asked if one of them had pain in their knees. I explained that Jesus talks to me about people and He loves to heal! The man said he did not have any pain, but the woman said she did, and she said I could pray for her!
I want to share this short but powerful testimony about hearing the Father’s voice for a person and how it can open someone's heart to Jesus. I was next to a girl who was dancing and I received a word for her that she sings and loves music. I asked, “Hey, do you sing?” She replied, “No, just in the shower. I'm not really that great.” But I felt it so strong, I told her, “No. You have a beautiful voice. The Lord is telling me you have a beautiful voice and you love music.”
I was walking through the night club and this young guy was highlighted to me. He was standing by himself and you could tell he was really drunk; however, when I saw him, I just deeply felt the Lord's heart for him that I almost started crying. As I walked towards him, I saw something about him where I just sensed he was ripe and ready to come to Jesus. I went to the man along with another person on my team and talked for a while. Receiving a prophetic word, I told him, “I feel like your going to write a book someday.”
Later that night the other Word of Knowledge I received came to pass! I was in the bathroom washing my hands when I saw this girl with a headband. She had two objects sticking off of her headband. I was thinking, “can it really be doughnuts with sprinkles,” because that was specifically what the Lord gave me for the second word. At closer inspection, that's exactly what it turned out to be!
It was my first time going into nightclubs. Before leaving that night, I was praying and asking the Lord for Words of Knowledge. Later that night when we arrived, the first person I saw was a girl standing at her car with her boyfriend. She had bright pink hair and wore bright Yoga pants. I went up to her and showed her my list of what the Lord showed me before coming. I was telling her the Lord knows her and loves her very much…
It was our first time filming on the street. You could say it felt a bit awkward, but we started getting into a “Holy Spirit groove!” We stopped this couple and asked if they wanted to be a part of a movie. They replied, “sure what do we do”? I told them I was going to ask them a few questions and to just answer honestly. The first question I asked: did either one of them have any pain in their body? The guy replied he did in the upper half of his back…
I came to the Portland 2018 event in a lot of severe pain in my back, hips and right arm from a fall I had on a treadmill on June 3rd. It’s a miracle that I was even able to come because of the amount of constant pain I had. I was unable to walk up/down stairs. I could only crawl. Every step I took would be excruciating. I would have to pause, take a deep breath and continue on very slowly.
I’ve had lots of surgeries, about 20, for lots of different things. I was in an abusive relationship for a long time. I was expecting four more surgeries coming up: a complete knee replacement in my right knee, surgery on the left knee for a torn ACL and meniscus, and right and left ankles for tendons on both sides. I had extreme lower back pain to the point that I’d had three surgeries on it already. I could not walk more than ten or fifteen feet without a walker.
Last night I came for the evening service, and the speaker was talking about being filled with the Holy Spirit and he was asking people to go to front. There were a lot of people up there so I just went to the aisle. My prayer was, “God, I just want more of you.” I put my hands up in the air and started praying and I began to feel like an energy going through my body. I had ten to fifteen people praying for me at one time.
I went up for an altar call in the Friday morning meeting. I have had a lifelong diagnosis of scoliosis, a 45-degree curve. I experienced a remarkable lessening of the twist of the spine. My right arm started tingling, and a big bulge visible on the top of my spine has shrunk visibly as testified by my mother.
I have had chronic pain in my body since I was a teenager. Today, during the afternoon session, I was jumping during worship and began to experience a lot of pain in my right elbow, right ankle and left knee. I stopped jumping and was being very careful the rest of the worship time due to the pain. After Lisa Bevere spoke, there was a call to lay hands on the sick part of our bodies.
We noticed this man who just stood out for some reason. We went over and shared the gospel with him. After we share the Gospel, he tells how on his drive to school that day he was crying out to God wanting to know who he really was. God heard his cry. The young man decided to follow Jesus!
As we first walked on to the campus, we saw a young man with a knee brace on. We stopped him, and he explained that he had missing cartilage, as did both his parents. We said something very cool was about to happen, and we asked if we could take a picture with our Polaroid camera so he could keep the picture for a memory.
We saw this young woman sitting on a bench with braces on both her knees and crutches. We find out she tore both her ACLs doing cheerleading. One had just had surgery and the other needs surgery too. We prayed for the one still needing surgery and it was completely healed!
One evening, after a long day, I was in my room taking time to be with God. After a couple minutes, I felt like I heard Him say, “Go to your next door neighbor’s house and share the gospel with them, and I will show you that I am with you always.”
