Testimony from Ebeye

In this picture is a man named William and his family. William came to us while we were on Ebeye to share what God was doing in his life. William is a part of the Overcomers prayer group that meets every morning at 5 AM to pray. He is just a member of the church. He is not in leadership but just a man seeking to see God do more in his life.
This morning he came and shared a wonderful testimony about something that had happened. He has been seeking God more and wanting God to do more in his life. One morning after prayer he was going back to his home. He was stopped and told that a woman near by that he knew was sick. So he proceeded to go and see what was wrong. As he was there he remembered what he was taught by Pastor Anwi and what he had learned from the Word of God. He remembered the scripture:
Mark 16:17-18 (KJV) 17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
He knew that this meant all believers could do this. So, he asked the woman if he could pray and she said yes. He then laid hands on her and began to pray. As he began to pray he felt warmth go through his arms and hands. He knew it was the power of God. When he prayed the woman was healed and made well.
It was so great to see the excitement in his face and the joy of being able to see the power of God. As he told us the story he was continually giving the glory to God. Wow, to me this is what it is all about. To see the men and women of God just obeying what it says in the Word of God. It takes Faith to move the hand of God. If we just do what it says in the Word, He will show himself mighty to us. William certainly is moving forward with God. This morning, I just wanted to share that with you, to encourage you to step out by faith and see God move for you!

Running with the Vision,
Steve, Shawn, Travis, Stephen and Richard
