One "touch" from Jesus is all it took

It was my privilege last week to lead the 2015 HOTS Bath India team into an adventure that resulted in numerous healing and miracles, salvations and 36 people baptised.

Yesterday I received a call from one team member saying that on their return to England, everyone they have been praying for has been encountering His Presence, and many are falling out under the power of the Holy Spirit - “I’m just not used to this kind of thing!” they said.   I was able to explain that this is (should be) the normal Christian life.

Luke 6:19 "And all the people were trying to touch Him, for power was coming from Him and healing them all."

I hope you enjoy this latest newsletter and take the chance to connect with some of the equipping opportunities it offers.

A village comes for healing as

lady's eyesight is restored 

What would you do?  Imagine you are kneeling ready to pray for a lady who is sitting in front of the entire village and you have just preached that Jesus is able to heal the sick, raise the dead and cleanse the leper.

It's that heart stopping moment when everyone's eyes are suddenly on you to be the earthly vessel though which Jesus is going to move to back up the message you have just preached....

The woman says she has pain in her leg and back and then that she can hardly see!  I know what i would do if I'm totally honest!  I would start with getting rid of the pain in the back and celebrate that one move before then going on next to the leg in order to build up my faith before attempting the eyes.   Not our team member Steve (above right).  Here's what he did....

As bold as a lion he goes straight for the eyes and here's an extract from his healing journal of what happened next:-

* After preaching to villagers. I invited a 50-60 year old woman to the chair to demonstrate God’s healing power. She had very little vision and back & leg pain. I commanded sight to full restoration. No shift on 1st attempt. 2nd attempt – slight change. 3rd attempt – full sight regained!!  She was then able to name individuals in the audience in semi darkness!! 

Acts 4:13 When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.

Kingdom Healing Schools 

We think they're great, but here is what others are saying -

"This is a whole week of “real church". I enjoyed every session and learnt so much.

The best thing about Kingdom Healing School is that the leaders demonstrate
what they are talking about and then you get to practice it.

It’s a safe and loving learning environment.  I would recommend it for anyone
who wants more of God" .  Sue  
"I absolutely loved my my time at the Kingdom Healing school. Healing has always
been an integral but perhaps less understood (or taught) part of Jesus's ministry.
It was wonderful to explore this in depth, not just from a theological
standpoint, but also in an extremely practical manner too.

However, perhaps the thing I enjoyed the most was working with a group of
passionate Christians eager to go beyond their comfort zone and explore this
vital part of Christian ministry in an incredibly welcoming, friendly and safe
environment".  Luke
hots 5
"I had such a great time when I came with three Christian friends to the
Kingdom Healing School in October 2014.  This wasn’t like any other course
I’d been on.  The teaching was brilliant and inspirational, with some hands-on
practice in the classroom, and out on the streets. 

This course really helped me to connect to the Father Heart in a fresh and
exciting way, equipping me to be more confident in praying for others, and
learning how the Father can use me to speak to people I meet in my daily
walk with Jesus. 

The love and support that I experienced from the leaders & volunteers was
awesome, together with the shared fellowship with the other trainees.  I would
heartily recommend this course to everyone!  I praise God for these guys! ".   Zac

Kingdom News in the UK

Healing can come immediately or over time, so we don't always know what has happened straight away after someone has left the chair, but It was fun this to week to hear from friends at HOTS Oxford that someone had turned up there to say they had been wonderfully healed after visiting HOTS Bath. 

Luke 17:14  - "When he saw them, he said, "Go, show yourselves to the priests." And as they went, they were cleansed".

Last week also saw our first teams back out on the streets after the winter break.  One lady passing by asked us to explain more about this as she described it "make-believe person that we have in our head". 

Instead our team member offered her the chance to encounter this person (who we call Jesus) in reality rather than make believe.  A deep encounter followed with His beautiful presence. 

Thanks for your time in reading this update.  May Father bless you, Jesus blow life and passion into you and Holy Spirit empower you for the next stage of the journey.
