Mbarara update from Adrian (2)

Today we went to a rural church that had no walls except for the one that is backing to the pulpit.  It was made of dried grass.  The roof was made of cloth like materials held together by ropes.  It isn't a big church -- only 2 years old, about 50 people in size.  It is located in the outskirts of Mbarara.  I was speaking on the power of the Father's Love.

Story One:  You won't believe what Mike from Soroti did

You won't believe what Mike did at a church today.  His greeting became a message.  Then after I was done, he ministered to several people and one of them was a lady from Congo.  She was in an attempt to murder someone as she has been badly scarred.  She was desperate as her daughter was tormented by demons at night.  So she came to church with literally heat in her chest area, ulcer pain in her stomach and back pains.  Then as Mike led her through ministry, she forgave.  As she did, she literally felt like cold water was poured over her.  Mike didn't even have to pray for her physical health.  Immediately, her ulcer pain in the stomach was no more and so did the back pain.  All this came through our Mike, yes our Mike (for those who know him)!!  Freely he received, freely he gave.  She testified later to the church.  That is how I came to learn of this story.

Story Two:  The girl who smiled

A lady in her 20s shared about what happened to her during ministry.  Her parents were murdered along with the rest of her family.  She is the only one left.  No one laid hands on her.  She just stood up to wait for us to touch her but before we could she wept.  For the first time in her life, she chose to forgive the ones who killed her family.  I was moved to  tears by this.  Anyways, in her sharing, she said for the first time ever, she felt a release from the heaviness and grief of her heart and then she smiled because it was like life entered into her.
