Fourteen morning cups of coffee.
Fourteen afternoon walks and evening sunsets.
Last month, Charlie set off on a fourteen day journey across 2 continents. He left America to travel Europe and South Africa, preaching the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. He ministered several meetings and saw miracles, signs and wonders.
In Durban, South Africa this happened…
A young woman was in the local hospital with a kidney infection and kidney stones. Charlie was ministering on a Sunday morning and several people in attendance had placed articles of clothing or other items on the altar to receive prayer and take back to loved ones. During this service the young woman’s husband placed her necklace with a beautiful golden cross on the pulpit. He was believing for her miracle.
Acts 19:11-12 (NIV) says, “God did extraordinary miracles through Paul, so that even handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured and the evil spirits left them.”
This loving husband took the necklace, after the meeting, and placed it on her. Suddenly, her body temperature began to rise into a fever and the golden cross on her necklace began to burn her. Immediately they took it off and the symptoms left her body… She was completely healed of her kidney infection and stones.
The following day the hospital ran tests on her and verified that she was well and cleared her with a clean bill of health!
This is just one story of the fourteen days my husband was gone. One life that was forever touched. Two hearts that were seared with the love and healing power of Christ. She and her husband received a miracle from a living God.
My living God.
So, for the fourteen morning hugs and the fourteen goodnight kisses… I will gladly share.
I will share my heart, my husband, with others because I know that they will meet the living God. They will be touched by the power of His presence and be introduced to the Savior, Jesus Christ.
