The Three Monkeys
We attended our last meeting in Darra, Australia on Tuesday. There’s been a lot of interest in dreams, so before leaving, we spent about an hour discussing dream interpretation with the group. A number of people had been physically healed this week after a spirit had been cast out, so we taught a bit more on deliverance. We wrapped up with a discussion on what means to make disciples. We’ve been truly blessed by all the wonderful people we’ve met during our time in Australia.
I met a man named Roland Williamson, who has a blog (Australian Miracles) devoted to reporting the miraculous works of God in Australia and other places. He sent a friend request on Facebook. We agreed to meet at a coffee shop where Christians hang out called The Three Monkeys. We talked for an hour or so about our common interests.
As we left the Three Monkeys coffee shop, we had an opportunity to lay hands on a couple of strangers. We met a group of women who were leaving the cafe at the same time we were. One of them used a cane to walk and we asked if she wanted to be healed.
She said she had a torn meniscus, so I prayed over her knee three times. She felt a little relief, but not much. Pointing to her mum, she said, “You really need to pray for her.” I shook her mum’s hand and asked her name. She told us about her injured shoulder and we asked if she wanted to be healed. She said she’d be delighted.
I laid hands on her shoulder and commanded it to be healed. After 3 or 4 commands, the pain was gone and she had full range of motion.
The healing gave us an opportunity to speak with them about the goodness of God and the things He’s been doing in Brisbane. A few of them had been burned by religion in the past, but the healing allowed us to focus on the love and compassion He has toward them. Meeting these women and sharing God’s love was the highlight of my day.
God has truly touched people during our stay here and we’ve been touched by their gentle hearts.
