On a ministry trip with my mentor, Chad Dedmon, we drove through Ohio with a van. We stopped at a gas station, and I went inside the food market there. I noticed a man in his 50's standing there inside the food market. I asked him if his name was "Brad," but he said no. I asked him if he had pain in his left knee by chance, but he didn't. So I just kept talking to him about what he was doing there and where he was going. Then I shook his hand and left. I sat back in the back seat of the van. We just wanted to depart when I saw this man approaching our van. He asked us (our guide Vic next to the driver's seat) what we were doing and if we were from a church or something. Vic explained. The man pointed to me and said: "This young man was just talking to me inside the food market, and when he shook my hand, all my "bad energy" left my body. My wife tried to get rid of this bad energy for years. I also had a massive headache, and it instantly left as well. What is that?"
So Vic, our guy in the front seat told him about Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit, and the man decided to give his life to the Lord!
The story kind of continues when a few months later in the beginning of February, I shared this testimony on another ministry trip with Chad in Dallas, TX. After the service, a young guy came up to me and said: "It's funny, my name is Brad, and I do have pain in my left knee. I had surgery on it [he showed me his scars] and I'm not able to run without pain." I prayed for him, and God completely healed his knee! The next service I shared this testimony, and we corporately prayed for people with knee injuries. Several crazy miracles broke out where people of severe knee injuries got healed by the power of God!
