The following report comes to us from team leader Nancy in Gaithersburg, MD:
I was very much struck about the words in Acts when the angel freed the apostles from jail and told them to go into the temple area and tell the people everything about this life. I think of what my life was like before I met the Lord, a life that was in such darkness and misery. I was filled with such gratitude to the Father for drawing me to Himself, freeing me from the bondages that I was in and making me His child. “No one comes to me unless the Father draws Him” (John 6:44).
This past week, we met so many people who are seeking peace and healing. Deacon Mike and I prayed with a woman, Sheena, in need of a job. Please pray that God would provide. Please also pray for Omar, a Muslim, who was open about hearing the good news and took information, that God would reveal the truth to Him. The next day, Tom and I went out and prayed with “Darnell” who is suffering from Trigeminal Neuralgia, sometimes called the suicide disease because of the great pain they suffer from. It is a chronic pain condition that affects the nerve in the brain which carries sensations to the face. I had met “Darnell” before and prayed with him. He said he was going to be operated on which actually did happen, but unfortunately it did not help. Please pray that God would sovereignly heal the nerve in his pain and that there would be no more pain. Please pray for Brandon whom we prayed with, for God to heal his depression. He was raised Catholic, and we encouraged him to recommit his life to God and gave him information to the church in the area. Also pray for Nicholas who needs a job and has a family to support, who is suffering from diabetes and cannot be hired because of his condition, that God would provide for him as well.
Praised be Jesus Christ! May God continue to bless and protect our little chapter and bring many people to conversion and new life in Him!
