How can you explain a turnaround from Jesus?  You can’t, you just rejoice and give fervent thanks to God.  In Bakersfield, we snatched victory out of the jaws of defeat.  My only regret is that I did not wait just one more day before writing you.  I do not apologize for being honest—I just wish that I would have been able to temper my report with the events of the next two days.

The real story is the miracles that happened to individuals.  Even Friday night—with its disastrous attendance still produced a great miracle.  You already heard that Manuel Carrizalez is our point man in Bakersfield—what you did not know was that he has been praying for his mother to know Christ for 27 years.  Friday night she violently turned to Jesus.  She was overcome by the power of God and surrendered to Christ with all her might.
Even though we did not come near to filling the great hall—our attendance nearly tripled from Friday night to Saturday night.  The harvest we had prayed for and expected came forward that night.  The photo below show a composite of those who came forward in the last two days of Living Proof Bakersfield.

However, the real turnaround in Bakersfield came Sunday Morning at Victory Outreach with Pastor Mike.  The church was packed.  The people were ready for signs and wonders and our mighty God did not disappoint.  Few times in 50 years of ministry have I felt such intense power.
Let’s begin with the miracle of the woman to my left.  Without asking, I broke out in Spanish and began to tell her the story of the agony in her body.  Her look of excitement and recognition was undeniable.  No one could say they were not watching a miracle.  Arthritis, and a host of other maladies had turned her right side and legs into a war zone of pain.  She freely confirmed the word to be accurate.  Then the word became a healing miracle.  She charged across the front of the building demonstrating that all her excruciating pain was gone.

Spinning around, I charged to the other side of the church where I said “Witchcraft is being broken in a family right here!”  That family was connected to a woman who controlled entire neighborhoods with Santeria!
The flow kept intensifying.  I asked my wife to lay hands on a woman as the vivid details of her condition were being revealed by the Holy Spirit.  “You have pain and weakness from head to toe.  You are being healed!  She was in the throes of valley fever which does exactly that…weakens you from head to toe.  My wife Mechelle prayer the prayer of faith.  Fever broken by the power of Jesus!

Next came a dramatic demonstration of God’s power on a precious sister who needed radical healing.  The areas identified by the Spirit of God included her heart, liver, lungs, and blood.  The picture says it all.

Bakersfield indeed turned around!


You have a lot of questions. My question is: What have you got to lose?

You have a lot of questions.  My question is: What have you got to lose?

Where is God in this entire crisis?  If God is real why doesn’t He reveal Himself in the storm of violence, division and sickness?  We know He has revealed Himself and we want to prove it to you.  We call these special nights Living Proof because that is what they offer:

Living Proof God is real—Living Proof God heals sickness—Living Proof God breaks habits killing those we love—Living Proof we have not been forsaken—Living Proof God has a special life mapped out for all of us.  All of this and a much more will be demonstrated at our Living Proof Crusade.

Even if you believe Jesus was nothing more than a man…what do you have to lose by coming to these rallies?-Mario Murillo

Here is more about Mario Murillo and special guest Manuel Carrizalez:

Mario Murillo: Mario Murillo rose from poverty in the Mission District of San Francisco.  After being revolutionized by Christ, he felt a call to the University of California at Berkeley.

His attempts to communicate were repeatedly rejected.  This led him to pray a prayer that would define the rest of his life.  “If you called me to this campus, you must help me.” The help arrived in stages.  It began with words—a way of saying things that were different than audiences were accustomed to—that seemed to tumble out of his mouth.  A small group of students quickly grew to a regular crowd of hundreds.

Then something else happened: students began to report healings.  They would testify, that in the Name of Jesus, their sickness had vanished.  Now thousands began to attend his rallies.

His international ministry was launched after a 4-day conference in San Jose California extended for 6 months with a total attendance of nearly 250,000 people.  Since then Mario’s voice has been heard by millions around the world, bringing a message that zeroes in on the hurts of society.

Manuel Carrizales:  Since 1991,  Manuel Carrizales and Stay Focused Ministries have seen miracles all over Bakersfield.   The city sees his powerful television show several times a day.  Every week he leads as many as 24 assemblies in the public schools that are famous for their lasting impact on students.   His after school mentoring program is considered one of the most effective in the nation.  His ministry won the 2016 Nonprofit of the year award from the 34th Congressional district of the State of California.  Plus, i

Through seemingly impossible odds Manuel and Liz Carrizales were used by God to build this amazing ministry.   Now they expect an even greater miracle.

Don’t miss these amazing rallies!
