9/30/2016Delivered from Cigarettes
"I was supernaturally healed in the River of God Ministries 24/7 Prayer Shed and through prayer at Nowra Healing Rooms. I asked Jesus why I smoked cigarettes and cried out to him with all of my heart. He said to me gently, 'It's your companion, you have made it your companion when you have anxiety and when you feel lonely.'
I had communion while crying out to my Saviour and was powerfully and supernaturally delivered from the addiction. He also said to me I was not addicted, I was lonely and in need of a companion. I have not had a cigarette since I was delivered. Jesus is now my companion and with the Holy Spirit's support, help and protection I am now a non-smoker and completely delivered from the habit for the rest of my life. There will still be trials and struggles but I am now aware I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

Update from John and Merilyn Edwards, Asia/Pacific Divisional Directors
This month we visited the Philippines and met the National Director, Roy Carandang. He is doing an amazing work in Manila and has been given permission by the government officials to establish Healing Rooms in each of the 54 Health Centres in the city. So far there have been 5 established.
In Tanauan, the mayor has given 2 rooms in the City Hall for the use of Healing Rooms and will be sending drug users and pushers who have surrendered to the police there for ministry.
In Laos, we did a training with 50+ people, some of whom traveled for 17 hours by bus to attend the 3-day seminar. They were all very hungry to learn as much as they could about the healing power of God and how to minister healing to the sick in this socialist country. They were very excited to find that they, too, had the power and authority to “heal the sick, cast out demons, raise the dead and cleanse the lepers.”
In fact, one of the existing Healing Rooms team members has ministered healing to a leper in a remote area and that lady has now been totally cleared by the doctors to return to her family and village life after many years of isolation in the bush.
Update from Carol Campbell, Africa Divisional Director
Since Pastor Grace opened the Healing Room in Entebbe, Uganda, his church has had to be extended 4 times. Dignitaries from the city and government officials are flocking to his church because so many people are being healed.
