Rest of the story!

Here’s the mattress man’s story since we forgot to put it in the newsletter! Emil asked if he needed prayer and he said, “Yes! I can always use prayer. I’m messed up all the way from the bottom of my feet to my head!” He broke his neck when he was in his 20’s and has had very little feeling since then in his feet and legs but he can walk. He suffered nerve damage from the 30 surgeries he endured when his intestines ruptured last year so he didn’t have much feeling from his waist to his neck. Also his body was completely toxic, causing damage to organs and restrictions to his breathing. He said, “If it wasn’t for the Lord, I know I wouldn’t be here. I’m saved, baptized and filled with the Holy Ghost!” Emil stood at his feet and told him to just keep laying down and we would for his health and also that the Lord would show him which mattress to buy! He laughed. Emil laid his hands on his feet and the man folded his hands on his chest and stared at the ceiling as we began to pray. We asked the Holy Spirit to fill him up and he breathed in deeply and with a loud sigh, closed his eyes. We prayed for all the damage to his body to be restored and all injuries to be reversed. He opened his eyes and asked, “What are you doing to my feet?” Emil said, “I just have my hands on them.” He said, “My feet and my legs are getting really hot! They’ve been cold ever since my accident.” Emil said, “Well, every time you feel something good, just say, ‘Thank You, Lord! More power!'” So he loudly proclaimed that! He moaned and repeated it as we continued to pray. He said intense heat followed by electricity started at his feet and went all the way up to his chin. Then he started getting feeling back in his feet, legs, abdomen and chest. When we finished, he said he felt such peace and was just enjoying the presence of the Lord. He took Emil’s hand in both of his and firmly shook it and said, “I’m getting all my feeling back!” When we  left a few minutes later, he was still laying on the bed with his hands crossed on his chest and his eyes closed, moaning and saying, “Thank You, Lord! More power!”

“Be at the mattress store at 10am!”

Even though it’s been stormy this week, God is still telling us what time and what place! Monday morning, Emil heard we were to be at a certain mattress store in Colorado Springs at 10am, a place we had never been. Sure enough, when we got there, only one other customer was in the store and God lit him up. As we walked toward him, he said to Emil, “I don’t know what to buy” which started the conversation. The man had undergone over 30 surgeries and complications. When we prayed for him, his body began to tingle all over and feeling came back into his body! Details in our upcoming newsletter!

What road and what time, Lord?!

We’ve prayed for 8 people and talked to several others since Emil’s last day at work on May 2nd, many from wearing our Free Prayer shirts. But yesterday we received the go-ahead from the sheriff’s department that we can set up on any public roadside that’s safe for us and traffic. Thank You, Lord! Monday we found several spots so now we just start asking daily, “What road and what time, Lord?” We’re excited!

“You got guts!”

Prayed for 2 women at the food outreach in Manitou Springs today plus broke up a screaming match between two women in line and Emil talked to each of them separately about forgiveness and the love of Jesus. Both calmed down and thanked him. Then went to Walmart and a guy walked up and said, “You gotta lot of guts to wear a shirt like that!” Asked if he needed prayer and he said yes! The Holy Spirit read his mail and afterward he said “Wow! That was freaky! Everything you prayed was right on the money!” God is so good!

Dream Interpretation

We were asked by a guy at our church if we would do a Dream Interpretation booth with him at a New Age gathering coming up. We will tell people it is done through the power of the Holy Spirit. Details to come. Reaching those who are searching for the One they don’t know they are searching for. We’re looking to make Jesus famous again in the USA.

Full Time Ministry as of May 4!

Emil’s last day at work was Wednesday. We are now officially in full-time ministry again! God opened opportunities for us on Thursday and Friday.  We will have details in our newsletter next week.

Today we wore our Free Prayer shirts to a festival in Canon City, about an hour from us, and had a couple of conversations while there! It feels good to be doing what we know God called us to do.

We are still actively fundraising to raise our partner base. Please check out our Fundraising Meter page for updates on our progress.

Roadside Free Prayer Full Time in 2 Weeks!

We are excited to announce that we will be back doing Roadside Free Prayer FULL TIME in 2 weeks! The Lord told us it is time and that the time is urgent. The Lord spoke clearly to Emil, “It’s time to quit your job and go full time back to doing Free Prayer!” And we had several confirmations. So yesterday, he gave his 2 week notice at work. May 2nd will be his last day. We have started a fundraising campaign to build up our support base which decreased dramatically with our move from Iowa to Colorado last year. If you would like to partner with us financially, there is a Donate button on the Fundraising Meter page, or  you may contact us directly to become a monthly supporter on our Contact Us page!

Moving Month

We have been engrossed in packing up our apartment this month. Our house loan closes tomorrow and we will begin doing some things in the house while moving small things over this weekend. The final part of moving is our furniture, which will be moved next Saturday, March 3rd. We’ll be back with updates then!

“Friends” Discourage Man from His Calling

When Emil was getting his hair cut, every time he looked in the mirror he saw the next man waiting and God began to give Emil words about him. After praying for an opening, the woman cutting his hair began telling the man about the first time she cut Emil’s hair and the Lord gave him words for him about her life and prophesied over her. The man said to Emil, “Hey, if God tells you anything about me, please tell me! I’ve never gotten a word like that!” Pretty good opening, right? So Emil told the man that God said he had a strong gift but he is constantly discouraged by “friends.” God told him to stay away from those friends and make a commitment to do the things God is calling him to do! After receiving much more love and encouragement from God, the man joyfully embraced his calling. When Emil anointed him, he laughed and cried and said, “I’m ready! I’m not going to run any more.” For the full story in our hot-off-the-press newsletter, go to our “Contact Us” page.

Opportunities to Show God’s Love

We all have opportunities to show God’s love! Four recent ones that we had are in our most recent newsletter, sent out today, hot off the press! One was about a business phone call during which the man on the other end of the line mentioned he didn’t feel well so we got to pray and one was about a Walmart greeter with whom we  shared a way to hear God that has been “foolproof” for us! If you would like to receive our e-newsletter, please sign up on the “Contact Us” page.
