This week HOTS was one that was special on its own. We were involved with many, we learnt a lot from many, as we let God do His work.
After spending time in preparations and prayers we hit the streets with confidence knowing that God was ready to use us, and greatly we experienced His power.
A lot of people are still hesitant to our call to come pray with them, they ask questions and genuinely enquire what we do before at times joining or just ignoring. I particularly like people who usually ask many questions then after we give them all the explanation just say No.
The first person we prayed with was a young person who was preparing for his wedding but did not have enough cash to help him arrange the occasion smoothly. We prayed for him and encouraged him in the Lord.
Next was a middle-aged man who said he had symptoms of epilepsy.
Some Kenyans have names inspired by famous people, for example many are now called Barack, there are boys called Rooney, and girls called Michelle (after Obama). This week we were privileged when Billy Graham came to ask for prayers for a job opening, we prayed with him as we continued to trust God to provide for him.
Two ladies came separately asking for prayers for deliverance for their families. As we engaged them, Jon and Florence left for a 20minutes walk to a different village in Kibera as they joined a mother who wanted prayers for her 7 year old son who was disabled. We were reminded of faith with works and we are looking at possibilities and avenues on how the boy can get assistance from institutions that offer help to similar cases.
Many others came, one who I will mention here. He hobbled up, obviously with a problem with his leg. It was his ankle that he had sprained and was causing him pain. We prayed and asked him how it was. He said he’d walk around and test it to see, and come back to give us a report. We didn’t see him again, but he walked away without the limp he came with!
