DENGUE FEVER HEALED

We received a wonderful today a testimony from Cambodia. When we were there earlier in this year we travelled to the northern province of Kratie where Cambodian Care have a school. En route to the school, which is in a very remote rural area, there was a family on a motor bike coming towards us who were taking their desperately sick son to the hospital about an hour’s drive away. He had a very high temperature and looked lifeless. They were unsure what was wrong with him but suspected dengue fever. We offered to pray for him and his parents agreed. After a short time of prayer they continued on their journey to the hospital and we continued in the opposite direction to the school. We never heard any more about his condition until today - some 6 months later. Here is the testimony from our partner Koy who with his wife Reny run Cambodian Care.

“The mother took him to the emergency room and the doctor told her that her son was too late to be cured. A few minutes later, the doctor took a blood sample and found out the boy had hope to live. At the bed next to her son, there was another boy with the same condition - dengue fever and he died from this disease. Since then the boy’s health continued to improve until he was released to go home. Now he is a healthy boy and back to our school in the village.”

This is what the boy’s mother says: “If you have not stopped and prayed for my son, my boy could have been killed by the dengue fever.”

Below are photos of the boy who is now healthy and his mother and auntie - both who now believe in Jesus! Praise God!

Persistence

I've been contemplating the subject of persistence when it comes to healing and was reminded of this story...(author unknown)


A man was sleeping one night in his cabin when suddenly his room filled with light, and God appeared. The Lord told the man he had work for him to do, and showed him a large rock in front of his cabin. The Lord explained that the man was to push against the rock with all his might.

So, this the man did, day after day.

For many years he toiled from sun up to sun down, his shoulders set squarely against the cold, massive surface of the unmoving rock, pushing with all of his might. Each night the man returned to his cabin sore and worn out, feeling his whole day had been spent in vain.

Since the man was showing discouragement, the adversary (Satan) decided to enter the picture by placing thoughts into the weary mind:

"You have been pushing against that rock for a long time, and it hasn't moved." Thus, he gave the man the impression the task was impossible and he was a failure.

These thoughts discouraged and disheartened the man. Satan said, "Why kill yourself over this? Just put in your time, giving just the minimum effort; and that will be good enough."

That's what the weary man planned to do, but decided to make it a matter of prayer and to take his troubled thoughts to the Lord.

"Lord," he said, "I have laboured long and hard in your service, putting all my strength to do that which you have asked. Yet, after all this time, I have not even budged the rock by half a millimetre. What is wrong? Why am I failing?"

The Lord responded compassionately, "My friend, when I asked you to serve Me and you accepted, I told you your task was to push against the rock with all of your strength, which you have done. Never once did I mention to you I expected you to move it. Your task was to push. And now you come to Me with your strength spent, thinking you have failed. But, is that really so? Look at yourself. Your arms are strong and muscled, your back sinewy and brown; your hands are calloused from constant pressure, your legs have become massive and hard. Through opposition you have grown much, and your abilities now surpass that which you used to have. True, you haven't moved the rock. But your calling was to be obedient and to push and to exercise your faith and trust in My wisdom. That you have done. Now I, my friend, will move the rock."

At times, when we hear a word from God, we tend to use our own intellect to decipher what He wants, when actually what God wants is just a simple obedience and faith in Him.

By all means, exercise the faith that moves mountains, but know that it is still God who moves the mountains.


When everything seems to go wrong ... just P.U.S.H. When the job gets you down ... just P.U.S.H.

When people don't react the way you think they should ... just P.U.S.H. When your money is "gone" and the bills are due ... just P.U.S.H. When people just don't understand you ... just P.U.S.H.

P= Pray U= Until S= Something H= Happens

The same applies to healing. We must to continue to push in for the breakthrough promised in God's Word. His word declares "no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly (Psa 84:11).

We have seen time and again that as people persist in prayer the answer comes. His ways and thoughts are higher than our (Isa 55:8-9). Nothing ever takes the Father by surprise and He always has a plan greater than anything than we could imagine.

We all love the instant, miraculous healing but most of the healings we have experienced over the last 14 years at CHR have come to those who have patiently and persistently 'pressed in' for their healing and in the process have become stronger, wiser, often more humble, and more Christlike in the process.

A lady came to the Healing Rooms not long after we opened. She had many medical issues some of which were quite critical. Over a period of many months the Lord healed her eyes, took away all fear from her that had 'crippled' her mind for so long. He healed her of Carpel Tunnel Syndrome and showed her a new sense of purpose and direction for her life. This all took many, many months but as she persisted, week after week, the Lord brought great encouragement, peace and strength to her.

There was a lady who had been bleeding for 12 years. The Bible says she suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all she had and was no better but rather grew worse. (Mar 5:25-26). In her day she was considered 'unclean' and shouldn't have been in a public place. However she persisted because she'd heard that Jesus the Healer was in town.

She thought to herself... "if only I could touch the hem of His garment I will be healed." That's exactly what she did. An 'unclean' woman pushed through the crowd and such was the 'demand' she placed on Jesus the Bible states “He felt power go out from Him.” When He found out who had touched Him, He said to her "Daughter your faith has made you well, go in peace and be healed of your affliction." Mar 5:34.

So may I encourage you to keep trusting God for your healing breakthrough whatever that may look like. He's good good Father and only has the best for His children.

We never know when the very next prayer will bring the answer, healing or breakthrough.

There’s power in persistence!”

A GOOD DAY and THEN ANOTHER!

We had a couple of guests come for some food assistance recently.  We explained to them the other thing we do here is pray for the sick or injured.  One of the guests mentioned he had a bad back.  So we suggested he could receive (healing) prayer for his back while the food hamper was being prepared.  He and his friend went into one of our rooms and emerged about 20 minutes later feeling wonderful.  His friend commented how great the experience was too.  The one who had had the bad back then picked up a large box of fruit vegetables and frozen meat without hesitation that had been prepared for him, placed it in the boot of his car and then commented how he had no pain in his back whatsoever!

A good day in the kingdom!

He returned a week later with another friend who also needed food assistance. He too was offered prayer which he gladly received.  He came out of the room commenting on how good the experience had been.  He was overwhelmed by the quantity of food he was given and was so incredibly grateful.

Another good day!

Financial encouragement

Financial encouragement

Winston Churchill said, “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”  I think if I was to fine tune his quote I would say “We define our life by where we give.”  Therefore, I have chosen to support Capital Healing Rooms financially because my heart is for the lost and the hurting, the sick and the poor. I want to see their lives healed.  If you feel the same, then I challenge you to become a monthly partner with Capital Healing Rooms as I have done. You will be part of a team opening doors for God to heal broken lives, just like the team did for me. Today I am healed.

Transformation Tour 2018 highlights

We have just returned from a very fruitful 2 weeks in Cambodia working alongside our friends and partners Koy and Reny Chhim at Cambodian Care.  One thing that stood out more than on previous trips was the expectation of the people.  It was so refreshing to see people expecting God to move.  It was so 'easy' praying for people on this trip as the highlights below show.

After a service on the Sunday we prayed for a man who had injured his shoulder 10 days prior in a fall.  He was unable to life his arm at all let alone rotate the shoulder joint. After just a short time of prayer we asked him to check out his shoulder.  With an enormous grin on his face he said most of the pain was gone and started to lift up his arm to test it out.  We prayed again and he said all pain now gone and he began to swing his arm around as if he was ready to swim a race at the Olympics!

3 women came for prayer. All had pain, fever and sore throats. Each of them testified they were totally healed with all pain, fevers and sore throats gone.

The pastor's wife had had pain in her hips and side for a year. After prayer it was all gone.

We travelled to a northern province in the middle of the country (Kratie - pronounced Krochess) to visit a school started by Cambodian Care nearly 4 years ago. It was a delight to see approximately 120 children who just a few years ago could not read or write and had no access to quality education so happy in their classrooms all reading writing and doing their maths!

We issued school supplies to each child along with anti-parasite medication and vitamins.  After the children had been treated there were a group of parents remaining in the classroom.  One man asked if he could give a testimony.  (The man in the white shirt) Apparently a week prior he had rung our friend Koy for prayer as he was very ill in bed barely unable to speak and with a high fever.  Koy took the call and after asking what the guy needed prayer for, all he could say before the phone ran out of credit was "in the Name of Jesus".  The phone call abruptly ended!

The man testified to the group of parents that an hour later he got out of bed totally healed. He went next door to his neighbour who asked him what he was doing up as he had been so ill.  He told his neighbour he had been healed.

After hearing this testimony we asked the group of parents who had pain they wanted to get rid of?  Many hands were raised.  We then asked who would like prayer?  Most hands went down - except for one man (man with red shirt).  He had bad knee pain.  We prayed for him and the pain vanished. He's the man in the red shirt to the right. What followed was amazing.  One after another they came for prayer and each person testified to being healed.

 

 

A young lady came up for prayer and said her red and white blood cells were all out of balance. The red were low and the white too high.  This caused her to feel dizzy and unstable when she walked and she couldn't bend down at all.  After prayer we asked her how she felt.  She said she felt different so we asked her to walk up the back of the room and back which she did without any of the symptoms she had previously.  We asked her to bend over - no problems at all. Her face tells the story. No more dizziness when she walked. She even bent down and there were no issues at all.

This man was lying on the timber bench behind him as we left the Train Track school having just painted the room.  He was in severe pain and could only just stand. Clearly he was in a lot of pain.  He had hurt his back moving heavy rubbish containers that morning and his pain was compounded when he sneezed and his back went into spasm.  He stood up very slowly when we asked him if we could pray.  In just a few words the pain was commanded to leave his body in the Name of Jesus.  We asked him to test it out and he began to swivel his hips like Elvis Presley and then bent down and touched his toes.  All pain was gone and his flexibility had returned.

We showed the Jesus movie (in Khmer) at several villages. The last time it was shown was in a small village on an island across the Mekong River about 30 minutes from Phnom Penh city CBD.  We had the opportunity to pray for several people after the movie.  The man shown below had had pain his side for more than 6 months.  We prayed and his response was "all the pain has gone - this is too quick."  He couldn't believe this could happen so quickly.  So we asked to him to check again. He pushed in his side where the pain had been and sure enough it was no longer there! 

All pain in his side was gone after prayer. "This was too quick" he said.

A Buddhist lady with stomach pain and a headache said that when she was prayed for she felt fire in her stomach - which in her words was good. Needless to say when we asked her if the pain was gone she said yes!  She was so grateful!

We had some fantastic news today from our recent trip to Cambodia! This boy had injured his eyes in an industrial accident late last year. He was working on a machine, fell asleep and he fell face forward into the machine and damaged his eyes. Apparently a piece of metal went into his left eye and he lost all sight in it. His right eye was injured too but he still had sight in that eye. We prayed for him in the first week we were there with little or no change. He was quite depressed and the doctors said there was little hope of him regaining sight in his left eye. We learned later he had been cursed by those in his work at the time of the accident. His grandmother brought him to church the following Sunday and we prayed again. He wore sunglasses all the time and when he removed them he could only see light with his left eye but not see any shapes etc. He had a white section in the coloured part of his eye and was still clearly quite depressed as a 16yr old. We heard today he is completely healed, the white section has gone and he can now see clearly with both eyes. No more sunglasses and a bright future Praise the Lord! Check out the video here
