Limping Man with Bad Pain Walks & Climbs Effortlessly
Pastor William and Pastor Lucille Lau write from Taiwan where they are involved with Mission Harmony Summer Camp where 2,000-2,400 Taiwanese elementary school children in various schools in the community attend. In the evenings, they teach Elijah Challenge and share in this letter about the healing miracles during their training sessions.

In the evening we held Session II of the Basic Training. The Lord's grace was very evident again. At the end of the session an older man, the husband of a lady pastor from Taipei, hobbled forward to be healed. He suffered from pain in his upper thigh/hip area which was especially bad when climbing stairs. Two brothers came forward to minister to him. Gerhard is a German expatriate who has lived in Taiwan for twenty years. Eric is a graduate of Oral Roberts University as well as Rhema Bible School in Oklahoma. They laid hands on the gentleman and authoritatively commanded his leg to be healed in Jesus' name. Then I asked him to walk. He took some steps and a slightly amazed grin appeared on his face. The limp was gone. He walked back and forth easily and normally. I asked him to climb the steps to the platform and he glided up effortlessly. The Lord had graciously confirmed His word before His disciples.
Then five more people experiencing pain in their bodies came forward to be healed. Disciples came forward from their seats to lay hands on them. Afterwards, each of the five testified that the Lord had healed them. One woman had been unable to raise her arm. But as she testified she was lifting it up and down effortlessly.
Then I encouraged the disciples to use what the Lord had given them to preach the gospel in Ligang. There are 112 idol temples, but only four churches in Ligang. This is a reflection on the lack of power in the Church's evangelism. Now that they have been trained to use the very powerful weapons given to them by the Lord, they must use them to fulfill the Great Commission. There will be a mass movement of Buddhists to Jesus Christ here only when the Church obeys the Lord's commands to "heal the sick and tell them, 'the kingdom of God is near you.'"
There is darkness here which can only be dispelled by the gospel and the authority the Lord has given to His people. Last night our host pastor was very late in picking us up to take us to the meeting in his church because his mother, who is now staying with him, had been attacked by severe depression. He had his hands full.
Later that evening after the meeting while we were preparing for bed in the retreat center, we were called to minister to a young lady who was on the Mission Harmony team. She was staying in a big dormitory room just across the courtyard from us. She was seeing spirits and was suffering from severe pain in the back of her head. We got dressed and went to the dormitory room where she and about a dozen other young women were staying. We laid hands on her and rebuked the spirits and the pain in Jesus' name. She was healed and set free.
