Leaders came to encounter the Lord, experience His great love for them and drink in His Presence. They focused on dropping a performance mentality and expecting miracles by His grace and operating out of love and intimacy with Him. The testimonies from the school are of the participants’ either receiving a healing themselves or reaching out to pray for others during treasure hunts or even just when going out to eat. Testimonies continued to pour in after the conference. These came in during it.
After Joaquin Evans prayed for everyone before dinner, some went to a restaurant and Joanie from NY felt like there was something wrong with the waitress, Heidi’s, jaw. During the meal, she said, “Is there pain in your jaw?” She said, “Yes, how did you know?” Joanie said, “Because God loves you so much, and he told me that your jaw was in pain. Can I pray for you?” She said yes. She laid her hand on Heidi’s hand and prayed a simple prayer. When she asked her how her jaw felt, she said it was 25% better. She asked to pray for her again because she didn’t think God was finished healing her jaw. She said she was getting goose bumps all over her arm as Joanie prayed for her. Joanie’s husband asked if this was strange for her. She said, “Not really. I need this in my life because I have epilepsy. I’ve had it all my life.” Joanie said, “God, who just healed your jaw, wants to heal your epilepsy, too.” Tears welled up. Joanie’s husband asked her if she could test it out. She said she was going to her doctor next week. The way she could know is that there were no more seizures. Joanie declared there would be no more seizures. Heidi was really touched by the Lord and thanked Joanie for praying for her.
Mary from Redding said that on Monday night, Chris Gore called out several ailments that she had: migraine, carpal tunnel, neck and back problems, tailbone, female issues from childbirth, deafness/hardness of hearing.
The pain in her wrist and arm left, her headache disappeared, her back and neck relaxed, her ears opened up, her spine aligned and her hearing came back.
Also she had had a nervous breakdown over Christmas and had always struggled with fearful thoughts, demonic attacks and torment. At the moment, she is experiencing a greater level of peace, safety, acceptance, and clarity of mind.
D. from Canada
During the prophetic arts session, D. was paired with a little girl, and the drawing the child gave her deeply hit D.’s heart. There was a big heart, and on top, she had written, “Everyone needs love.” She had drawn two people on the bottom, one big and one small. The big one was a mom and the small one was a child. She said the mom was working, and the child needed love. That was D.’s situation when she lived in her country of origin and had a son and had to work long hours. She thought she had given him enough love, but he didn’t think so. Now she sees that he needed more love, and she thought she had given it to him.
Healing Rooms Evening
Dina from Fullerton
Dina was in the Encounter Room soaking on Wednesday evening. A word of knowledge was called out: pain in hips. She raised her hand. She stood up to check it out, but still felt the same (she doesn’t have it all the time, but the hotel bed she is sleeping in here threw it out). She took a few steps, and on the third step, literally heat came in through her right side, down into her leg, and the pain left, and she “busted out laughing.” She walked back and forth and gave the testimony. She had come in for prayer for something else: a recurring staff infection in her nose. The prayer servant said, “I woke up from a dream yesterday with the word ‘staff,’” so Dina said, “I’ll take that.” That was fun. You can’t test that out. Dina was here three weeks ago at Kingdom Culture. She got prayer, and her entire nose was filled with sores at the time, but it didn’t heal. She wasn’t taking anti-biotics that week because she was pressing in for her healing. But this trip someone had that dream, so it’s interesting. The day after the Healing Rooms, Bill Johnson was teaching. Dina was sitting on the floor in the back of the room. In the midst of making a point, he said, “Someone’s hips are getting healed.” And she thought, “I already got my healing,” but she felt warmth coming through her body. Then he said, “God is actually doing something in the hip joint.” She could feel God’s presence in that area, so she took that word because she felt the presence on it. She has been getting “a make-over.”
Joseph from Foster City
Joseph’s right knee had bone on bone for 8 years. Surgery that was supposed to fix the meniscus instead took it away. Now it feels very different.
A word of knowledge for carpel tunnel was given and someone testified that God had already healed it.
Audrey from Dayton, Ohio
Audrey received prayer for an ovarian cyst that causes regular pain in her left side, and now she has no pain.
Steve from Ohio
Steve’s cold is gone.
Bryn from Ohio
Bryn can put her arms behind her back comfortably now. She couldn’t do it before. Her neck and shoulder used to hurt. She had an injury in her shoulder causing limited motion in her arm. It’s a whole lot better.
Amanaki from New Zealand
Amanaki, a beautiful child, received prayer, and his sore throat and tummy pain just, in his words, “shot off like a torpedo.”
Brad from NE
Yesterday Brad had a splitting migraine all day. Chuck Perry spontaneously tackled him and they wrestled around on the chairs, laughing. He got up, and his migraine was gone. He was refreshed, too. He wanted to stay up all night. It was awesome what the Lord did for him.
Thomas from IN
The toes on his right food were damaged by frostbite. As he received prayer, his toes got warm, a sensation he had not had in a long time.
A prayer servant needed healing. Someone prayed for her and her back, knees and feet were healed of pain. A man’s neck and back were healed. Pain left a man’s eyes.
A man’s shoulder was injured. An arm grew out. He then did push ups.
A girl had a knee and wrist problem and both got touched, and she was slain in the Spirit.
A guy had pain for a year from a broken tailbone; it’s gone. His ankle was healed, too.
Jim from Fort Worth
Jim was having irregular heartbeat, and when he came on Sunday, it felt really bad. There was fear with it. The first thing God did was take out the fear. It’s 60 to 80% better than it was on Sunday when he came in tonight. He knows God’s healed him. He said, “He slapped me on the floor.” He’s going to go to the doctor next week and have more tests.
Jim says, “I love Bethel.”
David from Texas
They prayed for his foot. He broke several bones in his foot and stubbed his toe five years ago. It’s been sore every day for the last five years. It comes and goes. God has healed so many things in him; he’s been running out of things to be healed. They prayed and he felt the Lord’s presence strongly. There is no more pain. His foot feels good. He can bend it back and forth every way now.
Larry from CO
Larry had a rotator cuff injury in his shoulder. When he went over for prayer, they laughed for about five minutes, and the pain relief was instant after that and complete.
Betty from PA
Betty sustained severe whiplash at age 17 from a carnival ride. She was in severe pain for three weeks following that, and it’s bothered her off and on since then for years (she’s over 50). It was painful because the disc was fixed and it stretched the muscle. It’s solid. Her neck was healed tonight. Betty also had a cyst under her chin. The lady whose cyst behind her knee was healed prayed for her and Betty’s cyst is gone, too.
Susan from NJ
Susan’s back pain from using the computer was healed.
A 20-year-old female is pain free and can now smile and touch her face. She had trigeminal neuralgia and experienced severe pain and could not tolerate touch or open her jaw to eat or smile.
A line of people received Holy Spirit laughter and joy for the first time.
Geoff from NY
Geoff had a torn rotator cuff, and he is 90% better. He can now do push ups and stay down in that position. He thinks he hurt it several years ago, and it was probably misdiagnosed. Last year he had an MRI because he had lost most of the strength in his arm. They said it atrophied and that he needed surgery. His wife prayed for him and it got better. He made a circle with his arm, and it would have crackled before.
Laurie from CO
When Chris was [symbolically] giving us a bag of seeds, Laurie felt the bag physically come into her arms. It got heavier and heavier, and she asked her husband to help her because it was too heavy for her. She lives in Columbine, and their heart is to bring healing there.
Elizabeth from San Jose wrote the following testimony:
My right ankle and knee were healed. My husband, who was very near-sighted, received his 20/20 sight back during the Healing Rooms encounter. His contacts dissolved in his eyes and he drove back to the hotel with no contacts or glasses!! [Before] he was unable to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night without his glasses. I was diagnosed with level 4 endometriosis two years ago. I was told I can not have children. I have been unable to have intercourse with my husband for the last six months because of the intense pain. Last night (July 22, 2010), my husband and I were able to be intimate pain free!
Nancy from Chicago
Nancy has seven children. God has “wrecked” her life. He has been going deeper. She was missing something major in her life and knew she was off track. What she was missing was intimacy with God. She gave all her problems to Him.
Betty from LA
In ’97 she had a word of knowledge that she had cancer. She started getting a lump in her neck. Saturday at the Healing Rooms she had prayer for it. Monday it was totally gone.
Nancy from Vancouver
God has been healing her life. Her brother died suddenly the day he was supposed to go golfing with her. Last night as she was on the line, one of the guys praying whacked like an [invisible] golf club towards her. She got a release of joy. This time in heaven [in Judy’s session], she asked if she could see her brother. She saw him, and he said, “I’ve been golfing with Dad.” The Lord showed her what her parents were doing in the heaven as well.
Melinda from Australia
Yesterday she received nothing in the Healing Rooms because she felt rejected by the Father. She had never been able to laugh with others; she’d feel rejected. Last night she and her friends were the last ones out the door with Ahab, one of the radical revivalist prayer servants. He had a word of knowledge about someone with lower back pain and sciatica down the leg, and he asked if that was her. She didn’t have the latter but she did have the lower back pain. He prayed for her, and she was 100% healed of her lower back pain. She slept like she had not slept in over ten years. She had not been able to move in bed without waking up because of the pain. She said, “Last night, I had no pain. I slept like a dead woman.” Today, lying down on the floor, she saw Jesus run His hand down her whole back. When she got up, her back was in pain and she said, “Get off, devil! I’m healed!” And she is pain free.
Theresa from Colorado
The best thing that has happened to her all week is that she got totally and completely plastered yesterday and dove off the stage. She is a self-confessed “total control freak.” This morning the Lord took her to Matthew where it said you have to become a little child to come into the kingdom, and he told her he had been waiting all her life and that her being able to enter into childlikeness and play with her Daddy was creating an open door for ministry.
Suzanne from Wyoming
She was taken to where she could forgive herself for the damage done to her daughter in her presence.
MaryAnn from Australia
She tried to get into a conference in Sydney, and it was booked out. She said, “Lord, what about America?” She just knew it was ordained that she be here. God has done inner healing in her life. For the first time in her life, she can relax. She knows she is adopted, and she is God’s little girl. She is freed from performance, and she knows that God is going to use her. She received some physical healing in breathing and in her ears being opened. She knows she’ll be pregnant soon.
George from British Columbia, Canada
George had a fun testimony. He said he’s been cured of some skepticism. Eight days ago, he applied to come here. If he had known what was here, he wouldn’t have applied to come here. But a youth pastor friend of his said, “You have to go through the fire tunnel.” He didn’t know what it was, but he knew he wasn’t going to go through it. He thought people here were nuts. So he tried to get out the door. He thought, “If anybody pushes me down, I’m going to get up right away.” Apparently, he said, “I got really close to the carpet.” He didn’t get up. He couldn’t. When Joaquin said, “Responsibility is overrated. Undo the cork and start drinking,” George was on the floor. His mother had told him to go to school and make money. Then when Joaquin said that responsibility was overrated, God told him to thank Joaquin. He did and then he “got tanked.” Joaquin said he’s been “tanked” ever since.
Julia from Visalia, CA
She had something in the back of her ear. She thought it was a bug bite but it’s been there at least four weeks. It was painful. This morning when she touched the back of her ear, she realized it was 80% gone, and it wasn’t hurting anymore.
Dianna from MO
Dianna had a problem with her eyes not focusing together, especially when she was tired; she would see double. After receiving prayer on Wednesday night, they lined up and focused together, and she hasn’t seen double since. She had had that off and on. One evening this week she thought, “What would it be like to be able to just sit and relax and not be seeing double?”
Betty from PA
Betty had the beginning of an abscess. There was a word called out for teeth. Since then, she’s been able to floss without pain.
Treasure Hunt Testimonies from Thursday
Steve saw a lady’s knees healed. A lady with back pain had one leg 3/4s of an inch shorter than the other. They prayed for her, and the leg lengthened. A guy with clicks in his knees was healed, and he got drunk. Someone with pain in knees and feet and someone with back pain were healed. The latter said, “I couldn’t do this before.” Someone had several clues and the word “bathroom.” They found a man with all the clues on their list. They showed him and he said, “Yeah, man, you got me.”
A man prayed for four people. The first person he asked said no but the one with her allowed him to pray. They went into another place and he met a lady and asked if she had pain in her neck, and she said, “Yeah, how did you know that?” They prayed and the pain went away. In a store, he was looking for someone with sunglasses. He found him and the man was healed of neck pain and received the Lord.
They prayed for the hands of someone from Bethel, and they felt better. A man was healed of knee pain. A woman with back and hip pain who had had unsuccessful surgery was relieved of pain. They led someone to the Lord.
Jon from Orange County
Yesterday when treasure hunting, Jon’s group went to a big store. Walking around, he got a word of knowledge for a lady with chest pain. He found a woman who had it, and they prayed and she was healed. She hadn’t gone to church for a while. A guy with hearing aids had a deaf ear. It opened up. He was walking towards the fishing section, and he got a word of knowledge about a wrist. He asked a lady if she had a wrist problem, and she did have. It got healed. She had a sinus problem that was healed, too, and there was glory dust on her face. A guy with a cane had blown out his back and hip when he was using a sledgehammer. He also had scoliosis. His spine straightened, and his back and hip pain left.
Suzanne from Chico, CA
One year ago, Suzanne had herniated a disc in her back between L4-L5. She’s been on her back about 90% of the time for 4 months. After an MRI, doctors recommended an operation. She came to Bethel about one year ago, had a dream to come to Bethel. In her dream, she met a woman with three pots of water from Bethel. She poured the first over her left shoulder, the second directly over her back, and the third over her right shoulder. As she did this, she said, “Purify and cleanse.”
Eventually, she came three times for prayer in the Healing Rooms. Each time she had 30% breakthrough, and now her back is completely healed and has never felt better.
Her severe headache was healed Wednesday night in the Healing Rooms.
In the Healing Rooms, they called out “left side of the neck.” Her whole neck hurt, so she didn’t go forward. But as they were praying her whole neck was healed of pain. She didn’t have to do anything. She had had the pain for over a year after a car accident.
Since January, Michelle, who loves to run, would get sharp pain in her right knee. A word of knowledge came for a right knee. Then he called out neck. He said, “People with the knee thing, lay your hands on your neck, and that will get healed, too.” She had a stiff neck always and that was healed, too. She confesses that she is a “Former Performer.” She saw the Lord giving her a grade. But he took the paper and ripped it and said, “I don’t give grades; I gave blood.” God had told Joaquin before the meeting that He wanted to heal people who had difficulty when they ran. So he had her pray for them. To check it out, people began running around the sanctuary.
A young man, to break off fear off his life, starting singing. An anointing of missions just came on his life. There is an anointing on him for the weak, for those who cannot defend themselves.
S. had a dream the night before he came to Bethel. His whole body went through surgery in the dream. He was suffering from fibromyalgia from the last time he committed sexual immorality. He thought the pain was from God to punish him. He suffered with pain for ten years. Here he found out the Lord wasn’t punishing him, and he is healed. He felt wind going through his brain. God was melting all the hatred in his heart off. He is free of the pain, too.
