July 2010 NewsletterBy Miranda Nelson
Dear friends and partners,
Thank you for your continued prayers and support. We appreciate each one of you. The last few months have been eventful, and I wanted to write and update you with a few testimonies/highlights. In April we were in Fresno, California, doing a conference with Georgian Banov, and a number of other ministers. While Jerame was ministering the Word of God, many people were set free from strongholds, as demons began to manifest and leave people's bodies in the atmosphere. Many healings also took place- both by word of knowledge and in the atmosphere. Jerame called out a word of knowledge for a woman who was in a car accident 4.5 years ago who had pain shooting down from the neck to the feet because of disc damage in the neck. A woman came forward and after Jerame prayed for her, she testified that not only was all the pain gone from her neck and body, the two bulging discs in her neck also flattened out. She was completely healed! (You can actually watch this online at our website's video page.) I called out a word of knowledge for a man who had broken his nose in the past, and as a result, there was no ability to breathe out of one of his nostrils. After releasing the miracle, the man testified that his nose was completely restored and he could breathe perfectly again.
During the month of May we were in Quebec City, Canada in obedience to a prophetic word Bob Jones gave to Jerame. Bob told Jerame he needed to go to two cities to unlock the door of revival for North America: Quebec City being one of the cities. Jerame released the key of authority, and we ministered the love of God to the people through healing and miracles. There was one woman that Jerame prayed for who had bulging discs in the back for 4 years, and God healed them, and she also had fluid and pressure in the lungs and God completely removed the pressure and fluid. Yay God! Another woman was healed of fibromyalgia after four years of pain.
I prayed for several women with broken or injured tailbones, and they received miracles. One woman had broken her tailbone when she was just a little girl because someone had kicked her in the rear. She suffered from this injustice for quite some time, but God healed her, and she was able to do what she couldn't do before (for example, sit down without pain).
For a week during the month of June, we were in the Caribbean with some pastor friends of ours, and whilst on vacation, we actually saw the Lord do some cool things! We were in Antigua, and my heart of compassion and love for the poor compelled me to love on the people and witness to them. One particularly memorable experience was with a young boy (around the age of 9 years old) who was selling peanuts. As I noticed something funny with his eyes, the Lord moved on my heart to pray for him. I asked the boy if he was in need of a miracle and it turned out, he was completely blind in one eye. From as early as he could remember, he had not seen out of that eye. We laid hands on his eyes, and with a quick healing word, God immediately opened his blind eye! For the first time since young (possibly since birth) the boy saw out of that eye! He already knew Jesus, but it was such a testimony of God's love to the boy; he would never be the same again.
Fourth of July weekend (also, Jerame's birthday) was a unique one this year; both Jerame and I were freshly ordained by Randy Demain and Kingdom Revelation Ministries. Randy and Debbie Demain, Bob and Bonnie Jones, and Shawn Bolz all laid hands on us and released us in Austin, Texas. It was a very special time for us, and we have already felt a major increase in the anointing and gifts of God on our lives.
Immediately after our ordination, we took off to Australia. We spent the first half of the 2-week trip in Adelaide and the second half in Melbourne. It was an amazing experience and we are already making plans to go back next year. I started out our time in Adelaide with a citywide women's meeting. It was a lot of fun, and God touched many people's lives. Several women were healed from arthritis in joints that night. Others were healed of carpal tunnel and pain in the hands. The power of God moved on a young lady's heart condition. Others were healed of pressure and infections in the lungs and chest cavity, neck and back problems, pressure on the kidneys, and other such things. I released the ladies to pray for one another with the authority of the believer that I had just preached about, and several were healed that way too.
Apart from healings that took place, my favorite testimony is regarding an elderly lady that I spoke prophetically over. As I prayed for her and told her things about her life, her facial expression went from stern to soft with a slight smile. I found out later that she was from out of town, but came with her daughter. Up till that point, she didn't believe in the prophetic- she was a preacher of the Word in a conservative church. After I'd spoken things over her, I heard the testimony later that she had gotten in the car with her daughter that night after the meeting and had said, "That was kind of uncanny, wasn't it! It's like that woman KNOWS me!" Haha! I love that! There is no way now that she cannot believe that God doesn't speak to His people today. God is personable, and He loves to have relationship and speak with His people!
As Jerame ministered over the course of the weekend, people were healed of sciatica, chronic pain throughout the body, poor sight, and much more.
In Melbourne, every meeting was unique. The first night, Jerame ministered and moved in detailed accuracy with the word of knowledge for healing. Many people were healed of significant ailments, and it released such faith in the room. One lady had metal pins and a plastic plate in her ankle from an operation years ago. Not only could she feel the metal and plastic, it was also visible to the naked eye. With a declaration of freedom and re-creation of the ankle, instantly the metal and plastic dissolved and she had total mobility restored to her ankle! Many people in the room smelt the fragrance of burning metal, as the miracle took place, and it greatly impacted the entire congregation.
There was a man in the same meeting that responded to a word of knowledge regarding two smashed discs in the lower back and a crushed disc also in the neck. The Lord completely healed him, and all pain left as he felt the realignment. There was also a man who was almost completely deaf in one ear. He responded to the word of knowledge, and God totally opened his deaf ear! Yay God!
Whilst in Melbourne I preached a message that the Lord had spoken to me to preach through a dream in the night. As I preached on Wisdom, I keyed in on Proverbs 8:21 and began to declare the treasuries of Heaven to be unlocked over the lives of the people and Australia. At the end of the meeting, Pastor Gary Morgan came up to witness of the significance of the message that I preached. It ended up being prophetic to the entire nation of Australia, because at the very same time that I was declaring Proverbs 8:21, Australia's Prime Minister Julia Gillard randomly decided to call for a governmental election to be held on August 21st this year: 8/21! She had no reason to call for the election as she'd only been in power for 3 weeks, but randomly, at the very same time of the release of the word and decree on Proverbs 8:21, she released the decision to the public. The people were rocked when they saw the significance, and we began to make declarations of righteousness, goodness and provision over Australia. Praise God!
I prayed for several people that got healed of pain and pressure in the feet. One woman was healed of arthritic pain in the hands, and another woman that smashed her hand in a car door a year and a half ago, was totally healed from all the pain. There was also a woman who had just injured her ribcage the day before and was in fear of internal bleeding; she was healed with a quick prayer. She had been in quite a lot of pain, and all pain left by the love of Christ! Thank You Jesus!
This past week was spent in Seattle, Washington, where we ministered at Citadel Church's men's/women's conference called Love Revolution. Jerame ministered at the men's conference, and I ministered at the women's conference. It was a powerful conference, and many lives were touched. The night Jerame ministered there was a man who had a large metal plate in his wrist for 21 years. Jerame called out the word of knowledge, and when the man responded he was instantly healed. The skin where the metal was became soft again, as the metal disappeared!
At the women's conference there was a woman with sciatic nerve damage to both sides of her body. She was a young mom and had trouble leaning down to pick up her child. When the Lord touched her, all pain left and she was able to bend down without an ounce of pain! There was also a word I called out in the midst of a healing wave for a woman who was in a car accident in 2006 who still had neck and back pain. Later on a woman came up to testify that during the healing wave, she was totally healed of all neck pain from that accident. Another woman had trouble doing her regular workout routine because of a sprained ankle from years ago. She was totally healed, and came back the next day testifying that she'd worked out that morning without any pain! Praise God!
Sunday morning and night we ministered at Transformation Centre, which is a Russian-community's church that we've ministered at a number of times. Jerame preached the word of God, and both of us moved in personal ministry. Jerame called out a word of knowledge for a blood disorder. A woman responded who had Tuberculosis and blood clots. As we prayed for her, she felt something move through her body, and described it as though the blood was moving back into order. We haven't heard the doctor's report on this yet, but the woman was so shocked with the feeling that she was in complete faith she's healed. I prayed for a woman with a growth on her chest. After praying, the pain had left and the lump had significantly decreased in size. Jerame called out people with ear infections. Three people responded, and all three were healed. Two of them even had pain in their teeth because of the infection, and all pain in their ears and teeth left. Praise God! Also, two people with sciatica were healed. Jerame prayed for a man with an egg-sized tumor on his left leg, and after checking it out, the man testified that it had decreased in size to nearly nothing. God is so good!
This is just a small taste of all God has been doing throughout the North America and across the globe, but it's a taste of the goodness of God. He is so good, and to Him be all the glory!
Next week we will be in Peru, South America! Please continue to pray for us as we embark on our mission trip of the year. We will be taking a team with Jim and Kathy Drown, and will be ministering to the orphans and poor, doing village feedings, crusades, and an equipping conference for the Christians down there. Please be praying for the Lord's protection and grace, and for a great harvest of souls, and much lasting fruit. We look forward to bringing you the report of all that God does after we return!
Also, just a heads up, we will be hosting our fifth regional San Diego conference this coming September 1st-4th. The conference, "Holy Spirit Weekend" will be a powerful time of impartation and equipping, and we trust that God will move powerfully in the lives of everyone in attendance. Please mark this on your calendars! You won't want to miss it. We have Rick Pino coming to lead us in worship, Patricia King, James Maloney, and Jerame and myself will be speaking and ministering. Registration is free, but please sign up online at www.livingathisfeet.org. Hope to see you there!
God bless you. We pray you encounter the fresh love and presence of Jesus upon your life, and upon the lives of your loved ones. May the Lord bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you!
