I am going to make an announcement—a big one! However, that announcement would have been impossible to make even a few hours ago. You know about the disabling mystery pain in my spine and left leg. Well, there seemed to be no relief in sight.
The lies of the enemy were loud and threatening. Night after night of pain—pain that no pill could touch and no sleeping position could relieve. The slightest misstep, and a shock wave could send me to the ground. It didn’t seem to be getting any better with rest.
Worst of all, I hated watching my wife work until she was exhausted caring for me and for so many other responsibilities. I felt helpless to lighten her load.
On the second day of this mystery pain, I heard from God how to fight back. I was to follow specific steps:
First I was instructed to continually thank God for His amazing blessings. One big one was thanking God for thousands of people who were praying for me. I humbled me profoundly. I thought about so many who suffer with so few to ever pray for them. Thank God for Matthew 18: 19 “ If any two of you shall agree…”
Next, I was told to prayer for others I knew who were battling worse sickness. I made a list and faithfully prayed for their healings.
Finally, I was emphatically ordered to read the Bible and speak healing verses over myself. I began ignoring what I felt and saw and plunged them under the authority of the Word of God.
This sustained me as doctor after doctor could not diagnose my condition. Thank God they at least eliminated the possibility of a hip fracture.
Our dear friends Bob and Debbie Searle came to my house last Saturday. They drove 100 miles just to come pray for me. The presence of God began filling the house. At the height of our prayer and worship my cell phone rang.
It was Pastor Tony Scott calling me during his worship service at the Church on Strayer so the entire church could pray for me. This added to the crescendo already in progress. The pain subsided and I could walk! I still had moments of sharp pain but nothing like before.
The next day Sonny and Linda Lara arrived all the way from San Jose just to pray and place a prayer cloth on my body. A day later, the pain shrank even more.
Nevertheless, God ordered me to return to a new doctor who is expert in these kinds of pains. I needed to find out what my illness was and how to prevent it in the future.
Today this doctor determined that I would be ready well before Living Proof Las Vegas. I have a green light from God to make this announcement to you. Three wonderful events are coming to Las Vegas
- Sunday April 8th until Sunday April 15th. Living Proof Las Vegas in the tent! We are going to Las Vegas to win the lost and heal the sick on a larger scale than we have ever known. We are going where gangs operate. We are going where addicts languish. We are going where the homeless sit in despair.
We are coming fully charged with the power of God. We have boots on the ground! Soldiers are coming to our side. This Living Proof Tent Crusade will feature the widest range of ministries to touch human need we have ever seen.
- Night of Miracles and Worship Saturday March 24th at 6 PM. Join believers from all over the valley as the power and glory of God falls. And, we will be prepared and launched to reach out and bring people to the tent.
- Pastors and leader’s luncheon Saturday March 24th at noon. Leaders will hear our vision and receive Special prayer. The Lunch is free but you must make reservations.
Well, through the prayers of many—heard by a merciful God—I recovered much faster than the doctor forecasted.
Why did Satan attack so viciously? He knows something big is going to happen in Las Vegas! Advertisers say what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. We say, what happens here will not stay here! It will not stay in Vegas or even in Nevada. Lord let revival fire sweep the land!
