INNER HEALING in ZAMBIA, MALAWI, ANGOLA & SOUTH AFRICA
(From an email sent by Thobe (former PRT intern) and Dimpho. These two members of the Africa Staff Care Team were trained by a PRT initiative led by Larry and Laura Hardie).
I trust you all had great Easters! Dimpho and I had a wonderful time with the ladies in Lusaka, Zambia. Thank you so much for upholding us all in prayer. About 70 women from South Africa, Malawi, Angola and other areas of Zambia outside of Lusaka attended this conference. The attendees from Malawi and Angola drove a total of 2 days to get to the seminar and faced some difficulties at the border crossing, but eventually made it safely to Lusaka.
At the start of the conference the ladies shared their hopes of experiencing freedom, healing, comfort, restoration, refreshing and peace as a result of the time we would spend with God at the seminar. Well, God being the Faithful One that He is: showed up and ministered to them in a special way. He spoke in memories, pictures, through creation, worship songs and His Word. Some of the ladies reported that they were not even aware of some of the pain and the hurts they had been carrying around, and felt that God was speaking to them about those hurts. For most people in attendance, this conference was the beginning of their journeys’ towards wholeness. Some of the ladies indicated that they would like to receive more healing prayer and become facilitators of healing prayer for others. How exciting! Dimpho and I are very encouraged and look forward to our growth as facilitators.
A special thanks to Rusty and PRT for your generosity in providing all the materials for the seminar until we can create our own resources someday. Be blessed dear friends until we chat or see each other again.
Ephesians 3: 20-21 comes to mind: Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Love to you all,
Thobe on behalf of Dimpho as well.
