We were out treasure hunting last weekend and here are some of our stories:
- Peter, Shelagh & Greame went looking for “flowers” near the “Opera House”. They found a lady with “red hair” and “buckle boots” who felt that her life was a “half empty glass” and was suffering “disappointment”. The team were able to pray for her and a number of illnesses she had. She was very moved and said to the team “I am so glad you came today as you have given me new hope”.
- Rose, Nathan & Mark met a lady wearing a “red coat” who had “pain in her hip”. They also had the names on their map of her husbands ex-wife and two children. She was very touched as they prayed for her healing.
- Later on Rose, Nathan & Mark met two people on a “bench” “under a tree”, one was an atheist and another who was an agnostic. During the conversation Mark was able to share his personal testimony about being healed of astigmatism as this was why the atheist was wearing “glasses”. At the end of the conversation the team prayed for them both to have encounters with God so that they would know how real God is and how much he loves them. Whilst they were praying God spoke to Mark about how the agnostic has had pain in his eyes, which he acknowledged. The team then offered to pray for him for healing, but he initially wrestled with the offer because he said he said he was having a logical reaction to what was happening but part of him knew that something real was also going on.
Right at the start, even before the treasure hunt began, whilst Mark & Nathan were walking in to town they were drawn to a lady who had a slight limp. They approached the lady and were able to pray for her healing. She was very touched by the prayer. Jesus said the fields are white unto harvest – open our eyes Jesus so we would see what you see!
