Today was a leadership camp for all of the youth in the schools that are considered leaders in their classes. This is special ministry and leadership training offered to the youth. We got there early and got set up before the kids arrived. Everything was going smoothly, on time and exactly as expected. They had school kids singing songs, praying and having a grand time. Then Pastor Jodie came up to preach a 2 part message. She finished the first part and the kids were breaking into small groups for discussion when it happened.
I'm siting here writing this close to tears, not only because of the power of the Word and the blood of Jesus... but also because of the pain and anguish on the faces of these children. They were in pain and moaning and yelling. I have never experienced anything like that before and I hope I never have to again.
Words really can not express what I am feeling now. I am thoroughly exhausted but so filled with the joy that comes with the Lord using me as a tool to help deliver someone from demonic forces. You know sometimes people look at Word speaking churches with reluctance and hesitation. But, you know if it was not for the Word that I have received and the training I got in Ministry School, I never would have been prepared for this experience and would not have known what to do with these children. But, God is such an awesome God, praying in the spirit over the children, laying hands on them and standing on the Word of God and the power of the name of Jesus got them and me through it.
To say the least, that made for a very exciting day. We did visit some other schools in the afternoon and dropped off books and supplies then came back to camp for a Shepherds Pie dinner with carrots and rice.
