On our mission trip to Guadalajara, Mexico, we met a 52-year-old man named Juan who was mute and partially deaf. He had never spoken a word in his life, because his vocal chords were cut as a baby. After he gave his life to Jesus during an open air preach, he motioned to ask us for prayer to be healed. A student, translator, and I began to pray for him, and we did a prophetic act of lifting off infirmity from him. He started to feel God’s presence, especially over his throat. We then sang a prophetic song over him and felt an increase of God’s presence.
Then he coughed, and then he began trying to sound out words! Juan was able to say his name for the first time in his life, and his hearing was completely restored! He was able to repeat over and over, “Jesús te ama,” which is, “Jesus loves you” in Spanish!
