We arrived in Colorado around Saturday afternoon… a lot of stuff has happened. Unfortunately, we haven’t had much access to internet, so I haven’t been able to post.
I’m working on a post that goes even more in-depth about my journey and the specific mindsets I dealt with and how I got out of them, I realize that was one of the missing factors in my first “journey” post.
If you have seen my Facebook, some of you may be wondering exactly how we got kicked out of a church for healing the sick. Ryan and I will be co-writing a post about what exactly happened and our thoughts on it soon.
These last few days we’ve spent ~8 hours on the streets in downtown Denver. We have NEVER seen so many amputees and wheelchairs so frequently EVER in our entire lives. Loads of testimonies, so it will take me a while to get it all down in writing.
On that note, if anyone can get us a few decent pen-sized spy camera for us to take on the streets, that’d be really sweet. We have a camera, but it often just gets unnatural and sometimes uncomfortable for strangers.
Ryan has done some video testimonies of people after they get healed, but I know most people are more interested in what we do during. When we were still in Redding, I did some video-ing but it really sucked to not be able to minister to people.
A few testimonies from downtown Denver:
Dennis saw a guy in a wheelchair and said to him, “I’m a healer, I want to heal you.” One of his legs was turned inside and had metal and bolts throughout his legs. He knelt down, commanded it to be healed, and the foot snapped into place and the guy jumped out.
The guy was so freaked out that he ran away. (noooo idea how that works)
Barry (the guy in the video) got totally rocked. He said he would get anywhere from 80-120 seizures a day and so he got healed and we spoke with him, he said he was going to walk around and see if he the seizures would come back.
10 minutes later, 2 guys showed up asking for healing, and said they wanted freedom from all kinds of addictions (drugs, alcohol, smoking); they said their friend (Barry) sent them over because he got healed. One of them had pain all throughout his body, and we prayed for both of them. They both said something lifted, the guy’s pain was all gone.
As we were speaking with them Barry runs back with his arms in the air, “THEY’RE GONE! THEY’RE GONE!!”
I actually don’t know how much I’ll be posting, because there are sooo many testimonies and we’re planning to hit the streets even more throughout the week.
On Wednesday night, Ryan/Laura and I went to do a house call in the area.
Someone who got healed at the house was talking about what happened at their workplace. One guy heard about it at work, and when he went home, he told his family (wife and daughter) about it.
When the daughter heard, she said she needed to meet us. She had been dealing with random emotional spikes since she was 6 years old (27 years).
We arrived at the house and Ryan/Laura shared for a few minutes about what we do, and then grew out the daughter and the father’s legs. After, we took care of the father’s hearing problems, and he said it was louder than normal, but it would require more testing to find out the extent of the healing.
Ryan/Laura went on to share a lot of new covenant stuff with them for the next 30-40 minutes.
The daughter also told us about her problem; she said it was hereditary (her father had a more mild form of it, and her 16 month old son showed signs of it). Basically, everything would be normal and then all of a sudden out of nowhere, she would get angry about the most random thing.
She told us, when she was 6, she had a sleepover with friends, and then all of a sudden, she would be angry and not want them there. Then a few hours later, it would be as if nothing happened, and she would call them, wanting to hang out.
She said that there wasn’t a day where she didn’t have to deal with this emotional flare-up that has ruined countless relationships with her friends.
She said her husband was amazing for dealing with her, because she could turn the best thing that her husband ever did and make it seem like the worst thing.
She said she had tried every possible cure, therapies, acupuncture, medicine, ‘prayer’, and nothing had worked…
When we finally prayed, took turns commanding it to go for about 5 minutes. She said she felt a lot of peace, and after Ryan led her through some repentance, she felt like she vomit something out. She was completely undone with peace and she said, “I just feel freedom.”
That was so priceless.
Ryan led her through a prayer for her son, and then after, she prayed for her father. Her father said he felt something lift while she was commanding the spirits to go.
We spent some more time just connecting with them, and then we left. There was so much joy in the house.
This morning, Ryan got a text from the daughter:
“Great morning Ryan! Went to bed smiling, woke up smiling and still smiling! I am forever grateful to you, Laura and Brandon for coming into my life!”
27 years bound by a devil, and set free.
“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” – Galatians 5:1
On Wednesday afternoon, I went to get lunch with an old friend from High School. She was very interested in the actual “how” in healing the sick, and “how” I made the shift from doubt to faith.
I know I explained my journey in a previous post, but I realize I never walked through and explained all the mindsets, how it shifted, and what it looked like. I’m going try write another post that will help explain it more in detail.
It was a great time to catch up and hang out, and after we ate, I grew out her leg, and got to pray for some other problems she was dealing with.
When we went up to pay, I asked the lady if she had any pain in her body and she said, “No… why? Are you are a chiropractor?”
“Oh no, I pray for people and they get better.”
“Do you have a business card?”
“No I do this for free”
I just thought that was funny, she was surprised and I got to talk to her a little bit…
Later, I went to hang out with more friends from my old church. We had to walk to a gas station to pump one of my friend’s car tires. While we were there, I told Sam to get a word of knowledge for some people pumping gas. He got rejected a few times.
Later, while we were walking back towards our friend’s house, we heard a guy shouting from across the street while trying to chase down a dog trying to run away. He told us to stop the dog as the dog approached us.
This turned into a dog chase around the neighborhood for the next 10 minutes. At one point, it was 4 of us guys trying to trap the dog in a small parking lot, but it got away again.
When we finally trapped the dog in a corner, the owner finally came and picked up the dog. The guy we originally saw chasing the dog was there with his friend, and I saw that he had a brace on his wrist.
When they were about to get back to their business, I stopped asked him what had happened to his wrist. He took off his brace and told me what happened, and then I asked him if there was any pain. He said there was, so I said, “Awesome, here, give me your hand.”
He gave me his hand and I commanded the pain to go. He moved it around and was surprised. He told me that his friend had pain too. So I turned to him and asked what kind of pain he had.
He pointed to his forearm and show me some random growth which he said caused pain. I told him to give me his arm, and then I commanded his pain to go. He checked it and he was quite surprised too. Then he told me that his big toe was hurting because of the running.
I knelt down, put my hand on the foot, commanded the pain to go, and he said it was better. I knelt down one more time and commanded the pain to go again, and then he said it was a lot better.
I preached Jesus, and they were thankful. One of them swapped contact information with me, so that was cool. I told them to contact me if they knew anyone with any kind of sickness/disease and I would call them or visit them to get them better.
Later, we drove past a park and saw a lady in a wheelchair. We pulled over and Sam and I went to see what happened. When we approached her and asked what happened, she said she was fine, and that her friend was the one that actually needed the wheelchair; she was just sitting in the wheelchair for fun.
Her friend said that he had sciatica and it caused weakness in his legs, and then he asked “why?” I didn’t know how to answer, so I said, “Well, I pray for people and see people get better” and he interjected saying, “No thanks, I’ve had a lot of people pray for me…”
Poop. I even shared about the people who were just healed just 5 minute before.
Later, when we were about to walk inside Jamba Juice, Sam saw a guy limping. He was about to enter his car, so I stopped him and asked him what happened and he said he had some hip problems.
“Why do you ask?”
“Here, give me your hand”
He gave me his hand and then I commanded all pain to go, and his hip to be healed. I asked him to move it around and see how it felt, and he said, “I can’t really tell right now, but thanks, I really appreciate it, guys.”
Just read this awesome testimony.
We arrived about 30 minutes before they actually ended, so we waited in the church’s library and spoke with a friend.
As the service was ending, we went up to front of the sanctuary to try to find people to heal. I asked a few younger guys if they had any pain in their body. We grew a few legs out, but they didn’t have any sickness/pain.
We were just about to leave, but I saw a group of 4 Vietnamese adults (2 guys, 2 girls) to the side just talking. I decided to go up to them and asked if any of them had any pain in their body. One of the guys said that all of them had problems (I was surprised).
The first lady I prayed for had back problems, so I grew her leg out and all her back pain left. The group got excited… I don’t remember exactly what all of them had, but they were all healed.
We ended up gathering a crowd and grew out about 10 legs.
A dad asked us to pray for his son/daughter who were grinding their teeth in their sleep (couldn’t really test it out). We got to teach a lot of them on authority and they were very encouraged.
We prayed for another lady who often got dizzy after getting up from a lying down position. We prayed for her a few times, and she said it was a little better, and then she told us she was going to test it when she got home.
Last Wednesday, I went to Walmart with Ryan again. It started off pretty slow; for the first 10-15 minutes nothing happened.
Finally, I saw an older guy walking really slowly with his cart. I chased him down and asked, “Hey man, I saw you walking back there, are you in pain? Does your back hurt?”
He looked confused at first, “No, it’s my knees.”
“Does it hurt right now?”
“Sweet, give me your hand.”
It took about 4-5 hits, but by the time we said our goodbyes, he was pain free. I preached Jesus, and he was thankful.
Later, we saw a guy with hearing aids in both ears. Ryan went up to him and asked if he could pray for him. The guy let him, and after commanding the ears to open, the guy said his hearing was better. Ryan asked if he wanted to continue, but the guy didn’t want to. (what..?)
Ryan saw a lady with a cane, so he went up to her and asked her if she wanted prayer. Meanwhile, I was just hovering around, trying to casually eavesdrop, and then a random guy went up to me and asked, “Hey, so what are you guys doing?”
He took me by surprise, but I told him that we were just going around praying for people, and people were getting healed. I asked him if he had any sickness and he said he was recovering from a surgery.
He pulled up his shirt and showed me a 6 inch scar going up his abdomen. He said the pain was only there some of the time, so I told him I’d pray for him. I commanded, “whatever it is that is causing this pain that comes and goes, GO and do not come back.”
He thanked me, and then I asked if he was with anyone that needed healing, and he said his grandma, so I told him to go get her. The moment he turned around to leave, I turned to see a guy with a small brace on his right wrist.
I went and asked, “Hey what happened to your wrist?” He said he pulled it, and then I asked if he was in pain at that moment and he said “yes.”
I told him to give me his hand, so he gave me his hand and I commanded the pain to leave. He was sort of confused, and he had to go.
Meanwhile, Ryan was still praying for the lady with a cane. I joined them and after about 5 more minutes of praying, we watched her walk without her cane. We tried every way possible to make sure that she really didn’t need her cane, and she didn’t. So, she went off to go back shopping with the cane resting on her shoulder.
On Thursday, someone on facebook had an ankle that was hurting. I just typed a quick prayer twice and all the pain left their body.
