The lady identified herself and explained that she had had a stroke that had left her arm useless. She came forward for prayer and the minister and I laid hands on her and prayed. She returned to her place and started to exercise her right arm, swing it back and forth and lifting it a little more each time. 

Within minutes she had full use of the arm again, putting her hand behind her back I saying “Now I can dress myself again!! “ ... referring to that little clip that all ladies have to fasten and unfasten! 

This was not the end of the story. She came to the front and said that she had asked God to heal her arm, but she wanted it to be through someone who knew nothing of her condition. Neither I, nor the young man who spoke up, knew anything about her. He was a stranger to the church who only came that day because he had missed his bus! 

Furthermore two American ladies saw us afterwards and said that they were staying in the church all the following week to teach about the work of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit had given us all a demonstration of His power.

 Praise His Name!



The city of Russe in Bulgaria has the only bridge across the Danube linking Bulgaria to Romania. (Both the other routes have a ferry.). There were always queues there so it was best to arrive the night before and arrive at the customs office early in the morning and have breakfast in the queue…and maybe lunch and dinner too! 

We liked to spend the weekend with our friends at a city church and be ready for the Monday rush. This particular Sunday I preached about Jesus healing today. At the end he message a young man stood up and said that there was a lady in the congregation with an arm problem. 

The lady identified herself and explained that she had had a stroke that had left her arm useless. She came forward for prayer and the minister and I laid hands on her and prayed.
