Today, I was at REI in San Diego hanging with the family. I saw a lady being pushed in a wheelchair by her daughter. I followed them, approached them from the side and asked, “hey, do you mind me asking why you need the wheelchair? what happened?”
She and her daughter looked a little skeptical and cautious but the lady said that she couldn’t walk very well.
“Is it your knees?”
“Well, it’s my ankles and my knees. I have tendinitis.”
“So is it hurting right now?”
“Here let me pray for your legs real quick!”
They breathed a sigh of relief, realizing that i wasn’t crazy, asking such weird questions. “Oh, go ahead!”
I introduced myself and laid hands on her knees. After commanding it to be healed, I told her to stand up and walk. She said, “Well, i can walk, there’s just pain when i do it.”
She stood, walked, no pain. All gone. She was surprised.
I started to explain how Jesus did this stuff all the time (healing the sick, casting out demons), how I’m just a normal believer, and that every believer is empowered to do what Jesus did. They were intrigued. After a few minutes, another family member showed up, so I asked if she needed healing as well.
The lady that was just healed said, “Yes!! She has a bad neck!”
I prayed for her twice without any result, and then on the third, she was 70-80% better. By then, 3 more family members had gathered. They started asking me about which church I went to (turns out they were catholic).
Long story short, my brother connected them to his church and I told them about a college fellowship at UCSD called Origins that does/teaches what we do. The daughter who was originally pushing her mom in the wheelchair piped up and said that she wants to go there. Apparently, she’s transferring to UCSD in the fall and I was able to get her email to connect her with good friends!
