I know why I’m alive!
Hello all I’m back in Alaska. And feeling great! Thank you so much for praying for me and my family. I have a brief report for you, I hope it encourages you, and again, thank you for your prayers.
Just before leaving on this trip I took a look at one of my banner verses Matt 10: 7&8, and I also looked at v 9 “thinking wouldn’t that be cool to go with nothing and have God provide for me”
Yep as you might guess, I got to Sri Lanka and NO suit case! And thats when Matt 10:9 happened. Gods so good. These folks in Sri Lanka took care of me 100% from a new tooth brush to clothes!
The India portion of the trip had to be postponed as I forgot to apply for an India visa before leaving, oops! I was able to work things out with our India contact Pastor and we will one day reschedule those meetings.
Without my suit case & not knowing when I would get it, and not having the Indian visa caused the trip to be extended in Sri Lanka for one more week. The Assembly’s of God was happy to put me to work, as they quickly scheduled meetings for me, what seemed like all over the country.
This mission was similar to the Brazil trip in November of last year, learning, resting and listing to what God is saying and just doing what He was saying while everyday traveling, speaking to leaders of churches, teaching in ministry schools.
In the last letter I said I was asking God for a birthday present? On March 3, my birthday, I was holding a meeting in a village on the East coast of Sri Lanka.
In this meeting was a man badly disfigured, I asked my driver to pray for this man, I forgot about him until he came to me just a few minutes later 100% healed. I asked is this the same man? Im being told yes, crazy good, big wow, this mans head had been buried up against his right shoulder, as if his arm and shoulder was wrapping around to the center of his chest, now healed and happy. I’m so blessed to have the opportunity to see people respond to the touch of Jesus like this man, he was so very excited! This man was lead through a forgiveness prayer by my driver, just like I had taught on that very night!
Theres so much more; doctor verified healing’s in a meeting in Galle. We had a doctor diagnose sickness and then I had the doctor pray for this same people and than he also verified the healing’s! Carpels tunnel and neck pain, were the words of knowledge that got the ball rolling!
Thank you again for your prayers many blessings Craig & Ruthie
