Canadian Jaimie Alonso attended the Advanced Training in Houston in 2008
Note: The abbreviation “msms” in Jaimie’s sharing below refers to the followers of the religion centered in Mecca
“I was so very encouraged that the name of Isa Almasih [the name of Jesus Christ in the Arabic language] has the same power as the name of Jesus Christ [in English]. Sometimes teachings never reach the “hands on stage”, but this was real!! About 10 msms in total were healed as I ministered in the name of Isa. I must admit that “Jesus” sneaked into my wording a few times but i don’t think anyone caught me. I also had all the msms hold their hands toward the infirm folks and say in the name of Isa Almasih, be healed. It was FANTASTIC!!”
Below is an excerpt from a newsletter from Jaimie’s hosts in Indonesia Denny and Lia following his meetings with them…
The Power of healing in ministry
“The ministry of the ‘Elijah Challenge’ course was in our area for almost 3 weeks. This included the Islands of Bali, Lombok and Sumbawa. The hands on teaching and the administration of God’s power to prove to the unreached world that it is the same God that heals the sick, that forgives our sins. Ministry and teaching to underground workers and many churches on the 3 islands was a great encouragement to everyone who attended. More than 70 students were healed including 8 msms in their home and 1 man in prison. 15 msms are moving closer to knowing Jesus because they witnessed a stroke victim and a blind man, in their home, healed!! 5 men in the prison are now born again. The total number of students that attended the seminar was almost 300, and the “history” of those healed and born again is now on a new path.
The basic fundamentals of the “Elijah Challenge” course are based on the understanding of the difference of our faith in Christ, and mountain moving faith, also the importance of fasting and praying. Our personal thinking is that we now have a big gun. We actually experienced the demonstration of students being healed and demons cast out. This is a big encouragement for us to see how the teaching is going to be effective when we share the gospel to the unreached msms in our islands.
Thanks to God for this.”
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…
