I do. I believe that God is able to do things that we humans can’t begin to understand. When He does I feel uplifted and encouraged. That happened again this week and I would like to share it with you.
This is an exciting post that will bless you but in order for you to understand it I will first need to give you a little background.
As regular readers will know Marilyn, my wife, and I run a ministry called Christian House Sitters that has been a blessing to people all over the world.
All income from this ministry goes to run a Christian Children’s Home called Home of Peace in rural Kenya where we accommodate, feed, clothe, educate and look after about 80 children who would otherwise be left to fend for themselves on the streets and many would no doubt die. The Children’s home is run by Marilyn from England and in Kenya by James a Community Elder who lives very near to the home.
Under them we have a local leadership team headed by Erick our Administrator and acting social worker. Marilyn is in contact with James or Erick many times every week and she makes certain that funds are used properly and the home is well run.
Next to Home of Peace they have build Peace Church which is run by Erick, James and others.
Twice a month either our Pastor or I ( we take turns) will phone the church on a Sunday morning and we will preach to them via their cell phone and a translator.
Also a further twice a month one of us will ring on a Saturday morning and teach a group of about 30 local rural Pastors who come for training.
This is always a blessing . Last Sunday the person preaching to Peace Church was our Pastor it was not me.
Here is a brief account of what happened. It is written by Erick who was present. Please forgive his English. I could have corrected it but wanted you to get the full impact of his words.
“We are praising God for the miracle which happened through phone teaching by Rev J on Sunday. Many received the word of God and there was healing what make us amezine is people can be total healed by God through words from phone.
Last Sunday we witness when three were healed.
A lady named Gladis who was so sick in all part of her body, she was feeling much pain but she healed & praising the Lord for what happened to her life.
Second was a man named Morice he has the problem on right hand that was broken, the bones came out the skin for many month, he cannot carry anything, but after Rev J pray for him his hand was healed and pain gone, he jump & clapping for the Lord.
Third was Elder James he have knee problem for many weeks, he can’t walk fast ,when Rev praying for him last Sunday he was total healed, he can run around and Ride the Bicycle to the market. He praise God.
God is so good we underestimate His greatness all the time. These are simple people who believe what God says, take Him at His word and see things happen. Sadly I feel that at times in the Western World we over analyse and intellectualise God.
I believe it was Moody who said “God said it, I believe it, that settles it” That is in some ways over simplistic but it certainly contains a lot of truth.
