Jim was trained under The Elijah Challenge in Houston in February
2008. He reports:
night, Friday, was the youth outreach from The Elijah Challenge
Training session I taught a few weeks ago. I was a
nervous as to the outcome as two of the churches decided
not to participate and this would be my first actual outreach.
I spent about six days fasting in preparation for this event
wondering if there would be any healings and more importantly,
salvation responses. A gal had shared her powerful testimony
of how she had been healed at the youth leaders retreat.
I shared from 1 Kings 18 and Mark 2 and talked about how
radical healings are to prove that the God that heals is
the same God that forgives our sins. I asked for those that
had a need for healing to stand, and then I asked for the
youth leaders that had been trained to go to those people
and lay hands on them. We corporately prayed and again God
was faithful to heal. There were 2 backs, 2 knees and 1 wrist
that had been operated on a week ago. There was no range
of motion in the wrist, but after prayer it moved fantastically.
The 2 knees belonged to the youth pastor. He experienced
a healing in one knee during the corporate time and came
at the end of the meeting for the other knee. I had the 2
girls whose backs were healed lay their hands on top of my
hands and a led them in authority to heal this knee. Again
there was healing and these 2 girls did not even have training.
Unfortunately the only non-christian did not come forward
but I was able to spend some time with him and shared about
how important he was To God.
The youth pastor shared about his little boy Ethan who had
been suffering from nose bleeds for months. Everyday he woke
up with blood on his pillow. About 6 weeks ago, in his office
I prayed for his nose and for about the last 5 weeks there
was no bleeding. [Ethan is 3 years old and was very much
afraid of me praying for him as he really did not know me.]
He woke up the other morning with the other nostril bleeding
and immediately went to his daddy and asked him to pray.
Praying in authority the bleeding immediately stopped and
has continued to stop. Here is the fun part. Just before
our meeting last night, Ethan's mom called the church to
tell us that Ethan had removed the band aids from his sore
fingers because he had prayed thru Jesus to heal his fingers.
No need for band aids because there was NO MORE PAIN! I am
sharing this story to emphasis how important this youth generation
is in fulfilling the Great Commission and the importance
of them being able to walk in the ways of the Lord to present
the 'Same God that heals, forgives sin'!"

"Last weekend I was able to share the TEC course at a youth
leaders retreat. Only one leader came forward for healing.
She had been in a car accident some years ago and was not
able to stand for any length of time. I had all the youth
come and lay hands on her as I led them in authority. To
their amazement the pain left her back but moved into the
back of her legs. We prayed again and it moved down to her
calves. Again we prayed and all was gone. We watched her
enjoy her healing as she did not sit for hours. Her testimony
was given the next Sunday. Her family are not believers
so this will speak loudly to them. The youth were "pumped" as
many had never witnessed a healing before, never
mind praying for one! We will have a multi church
15. The new trained youth will be praying for their
I challenged the youth to step out and pray for
their friends at school. I really believe that this

the healing-at-a-distance we were taught
in Houston and the results
again were fantastic. A lady was was delivered from
an oppression she

back healed and another lady with chronic shoulder pain was

past Sunday I was asked to share with the congregation what
happened in Texas. Then we opened up the altars and many
people came forward for prayer. I did not even get a chance
how to pray and things were happening. One older lady that
in a wheelchair and now walks with a cane, put her cane
down and danced before the Lord and us all. She said the
has come back
but I told her that we would see the mountain moved. Another
little boy had nose bleeds for sometime and they have not
Another man had his hearing restored.
sunday school group has gotten so excited that we are going
to try and
on every door
of our little town of 10,000. All this and with no training.
God is good!! This Sunday I am going to model mass healing
From Canada!! As you know there was a struggle with the healing
in the bone in my foot. Well I kept pursuing the healing
and when I walked into the customs area in Vancouver, the
pain was gone. Yippee. There was another slight pain today
and I went
after it again and as I write this, still pain free."
