Had an e-mail request via one of my websites for the 4 CDs containing the Elijah Challenge healing training course. The great thing about this course is that it explains that ANY born-again Christian can heal others. At the end of the training you also see other believers stepping forward to do the practical and lay hands on others, on the course they’ve just done.
For 20+years as a Christian I believed that to heal others you needed a “healing gift”. Since none had dropped out of the sky into my lap, I realised that I didn’t have such a gift. Only through doing the Elijah Challenge training course online did I realise that ALL true disciples of Jesus could heal. This page sets out a brief summary of the rationale for this: http://www.newchristian.org.uk/elijahchallenge.html
Since the course is non-copyright, I used the free program CDBurnerXP to create the data discs and told the recipient that he could freely copy the training course to give out to others, as that’s what he said he planned to do. The Elijah Challenge website is here: http://www.theelijahchallenge.org/ As their website says, “The time of the superstar “one-man-show” evangelist is fading and the time of the nameless disciple is at hand”.
It’s great to be able to encourage others who are trying to emulate Jesus and the disciples, and wanting others to do the same!
This British website has lots of helpful resources on healing: http://www.jesusheals.me.uk

Chatted with a guy who came in for food. He described himself as a Christian, but didn’t go to church. I shared some of my story, and how I ended back in church after becoming “born again”. He had heard the term, but wasn’t sure what it meant. I gave him an explanation of why Jesus died and what it means for us. I told him that there is a large treasure chest on a shelf in Heaven with his name on it, gathering dust. Jesus had paid the price for his sins, but he had to receive it for himself.
I offered him a £1 coin and got him to take it, as an illustration of how we need to grab hold of what Jesus did for ourselves. He seemed to understand that was how the “born again” process worked. I gave him a copy of the booklet “Journey Into Life” plus a copy of my card with my website and e-mail contact details and invited him to contact me any time.
Afterwards a guy from Estonia came in for food just before we closed. He thought there was “something up there”, but not sure what it was. I checked out the word for goodbye in Estonian on my Google Translate app and said it to him as he left.
Received the following e-mail today:
“I’ve had 2 major abdominal surgeries back to back. Started May 11th 2012 ended May 13th Mother’s day. Discharged from the hospital on May 19th. On May the 22nd I believed I was a goner. My health had turned for the worst. I remember lying in bed and the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said “Pray over yourself Lay hands on yourself for healing” I obeyed and I must say the next morning I felt alive again not weak and feeble I started praying for a Higher Calling of God. I came across your website that has really great information. I am a beginner and have picked up some great information that I printed from your site. I will start here and continue on one day at a time. Thanks for being here when I needed you.”
