Tom Briggs and Salt Ministries hosted and trained with The Elijah Challenge in January 2009
July 26, 2009
Today from 10 AM until 4:30 PM Open Air Seattle hoisted up our gospel banners and suited up in our preachshirts down at the annual Renton River Days community vanity fair in Renton, Washington State. The Lord brought people to us as we stood our ground on top of a raised “grassy knoll”. A young man came up to us with a constantly-hurting sprained wrist wrapped in a brace due to a spill on his skateboard. He was a believer and was very curious seeing the banners and seemingly strange gospel evangelism we were doing.
After answering his questions I asked him if he would let us “pray” over his wrist in Jesus’ Name. He let us lay hands and minister to his wrist, and JESUS instantly healed it completely—to his surprise—confirming to him that we were not some wack job “cult” but genuine gospel messengers of our Lord Jesus. Many souls were hearing the Truth and asking questions today, but this testimony of miraculous healing will reach many youth at that skateboard rink after today. This young man goes there often to share the gospel as best he can with his limited knowledge.
