A year 10 student told us during mission week a story of something amazing that had happened to her. She had been suffering with depression for a while and was known to self-harm. The student claimed to not believe in God but in other supernatural powers. She told us that on the Thursday night of mission week she got out of bed feeling really down, went to the kitchen and got out a knife to self-harm but then to her shock the knife flew across the room and she felt a hand on her shoulder and was flooded with a feeling of peace. She then felt a sudden desire to read scripture and she just knew that God was with her. The next day she came into school totally free of her depression. Jesus is alive!
A radical Jesus Encounter
In Prayer4U where the team pray personally for students, a year 9 student had a personal encounter with Jesus. The boy came to receive prayer looking downcast. After a team member and another student prayed for him he looked up with a huge smile on his face. When the team member asked if he had experienced anything the student said ‘Yes, it sounds crazy but I saw Jesus walking towards me, he was actually right in front of me!’ The boy left the chapel completely transformed and in utter awe. Many young people had experiences such as this during mission week. Jesus is alive!
Pre Mission Healing
As the students who were trained in Prayer4U started to practice praying with one another a week beofre the mission started, one particular girl experienced pain in certain joints down her left side. She shared this with the girl whom she was praying for and to her surprise found that she had described the pains she was also feeling. The whole group then proceeded to pray for her and she was healed. A week later on mission we caught up with her and found that she was still completely healed to the extent that all her bruising accompanying the injury had disappeared after prayer! Jesus is alive!
Lunch Hall Revival
A boy approached us after the ‘Naturally Supernatural’ workshop and asked us to pray for his dislocated elbow that had never healed up properly after he had injured it. The extent of the injury was that he couldn’t lift weights and also couldn’t dance with anyone off his left arm. As the team member started to pray they felt something shift in the elbow, first assuming that the boy had moved it himself. However to the team member’s surprise he declared that he hadn’t and that he thought the team member had moved his arm! He proceeded to move his arm unlike he had been able to do before and he was completely healed! He went away believing in God having previously been a non-believer. Following this miracle a girl approached us in the lunch hall and asked for prayer believing that it was her who God had highlighted during the workshop but hadn’t admitted it thinking that God wanted to heal someone else (the team member had felt God tell them during the workshop that someone in the room had a bad lower back problem). Her friend who was with her, along with the priest who happened to be passing, prayed and she experienced complete healing in her back. Another girl then proceeded to ask for prayer for her back and she also got healed! Jesus is alive (even in the lunch hall)!
