Welcome to HOTS. This week the report serves the experiences we had on the streets for the last two weeks. It’s hot in Nairobi and dusty in Kibera, and fewer people are stopping for prayers because of this.
This week we pick it up from James’ story two weeks ago. If you remember, he had a problem with his skin and digestion. Well, he came back to give testimony of his progress, his stomach had healed and he was all happy and upbeat as he continued with his business of selling tea leaves. That really encouraged us knowing that we were in timing with God and according to His will James got healed.
So this week we had a lady, whilst we were praying for her, she felt God was doing something in her legs where she was experiencing pain. We trust that the Holy Spirit was at work, and look forward to her coming back to report healing.
A man who had injured his toe, a guy who wanted his marriage to be strong, and quite a number of people with social needs. Talking of social needs, here is a common question we are usually asked: “Can you also pray for me to get a job, any kind of job?” The answer can only be yes, but once you start to talk and enquire about the person, then you discover that there is often more than just wanting prayers to get some source of income.
Two ladies wanted prayers on behalf of their families and friend. One, for her friend to have piece of mind, her friend lost her child at birth in a clinic near where we sit for praying on the streets. The second one, her aunt had blood cancer was going through treatment, her father had been hospitalized with swelling in his hand, and her brother had been involved in a motorcycle accident.
Alongside those who wanted deliverance for their families, this week HOTS majorly committed to stand in the gap with those who were far from us and somehow through prayers we hope felt better or just had peace.
We look forward to many more testimonies of God’s doing.
