As part of the School of Supernatural Evangelism we are encouraged to put into practice what we learn. The year focuses on many things but all find their foundations within the Kingdom of God. As we step out into a lifestyle with a Kingdom mindset we begin to see God breaking into the lives of many people. This breakthrough can come in many ways; sometimes a prophetic word at just the right time which brings encouragement, sometimes through healing and can, many times, lead to salvations as people recognise the love and God and his desire for them to know Him.
We have already seen some amazing things happen within our first term and are expecting much more as the term progresses. Below are just a couple of the testimonies from some of the students on the course:
“I prayed for someone on a treasure hunt in the morning. A treasure hunt is where you ask for ‘clues’ from God and then you seek them out and ask the person who matches the clues if you can pray for them. I had found the ‘treasure’ that God had highlighted to me and had prayed for them. Even though there was a slight language barrier the person said he felt better in his heart once we had prayed.
I also prayed for 6 people during HOTS (Healing On The Streets). Most people wanted prayed for other people in their lives so there was no discernible change to be seen. However, the people I prayed for still felt blessed and I was also able to give the Gospel message to 3 or 4 of the people.
I also prayed for 3 people at church, one for work, one needing breakthrough, and one fractured ribs. I prayed for L in evening for itchy back which is an on-going issue. Her back itches so much that she wanted to take a fork to it. After praying three times she said she had no urge to scratch it.”

“I Prayed for J’s back. The pain went from 10 to 7. I prayed again and there was no change so I prayed a third time and the pain went down to a 6.”

“I gave a word of knowledge to a man on the streets during HOTS. I felt that God wanted him to know that there was breakthrough coming. I had felt it was in terms of work and that even though the last few months had been tough breakthrough was imminent and that as a family he would be blessed. As I was talking his wife had appeared so he retold her what I had said. He then went on to say that two months ago he had been made redundant and that it had been tough but they were in town that day to see if there were any empty shops they could look at setting up a business in. I was able to pray for him, his wife and his family that they would be blessed as they moved forwards in the next few months.
I also prayed for a young lady who had badly damaged her hand. Her hand was swollen and bruised and she was unable to move her fingers. As she prayed she said that it felt a bit funny and after the first prayer I encouraged her to try and do something that she hadn’t been able to do before (eg. Move her fingers). She moved her fingers slowly and found she had more movement in them as she could move them slightly. I prayed again and she could move them more and a third time after which she had full movement and was able to clench her fist without any pain. The swelling had also gone down.”
