As they left each member of the team individually felt a strong burden for this man and his wife. They continued to pray for him throughout the day and night.
The next night our team hosted a Compassion Kit party in the paralyzed man's village. The man was carried to the party and when the team saw him they already knew something was different. He no longer looked like he was in a trance and actually was listening as our team shared stories from God's Word. When given the opportunity to forsake the old pattern of their lives and follow Christ the man joined others in committing his life to Jesus. Then, still sensing a burden to pray for this man to be healed our team members gathered and cried out to God for this man. A few moments later he was able to stand up and walk out of the party in his own strength! The pastor confirmed that as long as he had known the man he was unable to walk and declared God has healed this man! And now he and his wife are very tangible testimonies to all in the village that God is alive and active in their midst and they can share that He loves them and offers forgiveness in Christ. Amen!
