It seems such a long time ago now that Simon and PJ first spoke to me about handing over the youth work to head up a School of Supernatural Ministry at the King's Arms. We're now two weeks into our exciting new adventure and I'm blown away that I actually get paid for leading something that is so much fun. God is already breaking in in amazing ways!
We have 22 students on the course - incredible men and women who are hungry for more of God and His Kingdom. The atmosphere when we come together to worship is electric and I am so encouraged that we're already feeling a lot like family. We have laughed together, cried together, eaten together, learnt together, prayed together and celebrated together. On our 3rd day together I asked if anyone had any stories to share that we could thank God for. Here were the highlights...
- One girl shared how money kept re-appearing in her pockets after she'd spent it. She also told us that £100 had been deposited into a bank account she'd closed and that she had been given more housing benefit than she'd asked for (MIRACLES!)
- One lady shared about how she'd prayed for a guy at a wedding who had broken his collar bone and had his arm in a sling. After prayer the pain he was experiencing reduced from 8/10 to 4/10!
- A guy shared how he'd injured his ankle while out walking with friends but it was instantly healed after prayer - all the pain completely disappeared! He also shared how a girl in his youth group who had a hole in her eardrum was healed after 5 times of prayer (Woop!)
- A couple shared how they'd been able to share the gospel with the people round their table at a wedding and how a guys back got completely healed after prayer!
These are ordinary people living supernatural lives! It's such a privilege to be part of what God is doing through this school. I've got the best job in the world! All these stories after only 2 weeks; imagine what's going to happen in the next 9 months!
