My Brief Career As a Healing Missionary

I was part of a team of 25 laymen who accompanied Randy Clark on a 10-day tour of two cities in Germany. Randy is an evangelist with an emphasis on prayer for healing. See here for an article with link to YouTube video showing Randy praying for a nearly-deaf boy in Brazil who then becomes able to hear.  For the morning/afternoon/evening meetings on this tour, typically Randy or his associate Tom Jones would preach a message for an hour or so, pray for the people from the platform, and then we, the team, would line up across the front and offer to pray for anyone who wanted to come up to us.

I posted  (  Germany_Mission  )   a longish first-hand impression of my experiences on this trip. I did not see any particular spectacular miracle like a new limb sprouting. However, over the whole trip a total of something like two hundred people (my rough estimate) reported near-total relief of whatever pains or disabilities they were having. Whatever the organic basis of their maladies, for those folks this was significant healing. I do not have a satisfying understanding regarding what gets healed and what doesn’t.

A bonus for our trip was touring the impressive old (built 1030-1061 A.D.) romanesque basilica in Speyer. This was about 200 years before they figured out how to do the light, airy gothic architecture. It is mind-blowing to think each stone block here was shaped and positioned by hand.
