On our day off, my mission trip team was paying our bill at a shop in Rwanda when I asked the owner if he had any pain in his body. He said he didn’t, so I asked if any of his staff had pain. A worker standing nearby showed me he could not raise his arm above a certain point because of shoulder problems. I prayed a simple, direct prayer in Jesus’ name and asked the man to test out his arm. He was completely surprised when he could lift his arm straight up!
Astounded, he kept raising his arm up and down and smiling. His coworkers had gathered around and when I asked if anyone else had pain, a man pointed to his side. I asked the man who had just been healed to pray for his coworker, so he came around the counter and laid his hand on him. After a short, straightforward prayer in Jesus’ name, the friend checked out his side. They were all happy and amazed because he had been instantly healed! I commissioned them to pray for anyone they saw in a simple, easy way and to tell everyone what Jesus had done for them that day.
As we left, the first worker walked us all the way to our boat and kept raising his arm to confirm what God had just done in his life.
