Matthew 10:7-8

As you go, preach, saying, "the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.

God working with us!

On a recent outreach to Cleveland Homes God reminded us that He is working with us, it's not just us out there by ourselves but the Lord actually there helping us.

 About halfway through the outreach we spotted some young men drinking beer and smoking behind one of the apartment buildings. As we approached them it was obvious they didn't really want the light shining on them.

 One man named Jermaine responded that he knew what we were doing and that they were all set and didn't want to talk to us. 
(little did he know we weren't there to talk, but to preach and demonstrate the Kingdom of heaven.)

One of us asked him "what was going on with his shoulder?" He jumped up stunned, shaking his head and said "how did you know that?" After a little more preaching he let us pray for his shoulder. I'm not sure if he got healed he was so shaken he wouldn't really say if the pain was gone or not.

We ministered to the other men and assured them of God's love for them and encouraged them to repent. Amazing how one word of knowledge changes things. Thank you Jesus!
