From ryanbanko.theworldrace.orgRyan Banko filed the following report this week from Morogoro, Tanzania.

We jump on the bus and head into town, there is a bridge we know of that many beggars and blind people sit at so we headed that way. Once we got there we saw a path under the bridge that ran parallel to a small river.

I had a feeling that God was going to bring us to a mosque or something that day. We keep walking through this small path and see some boys on the other side, it looked like a school, so we asked them where to cross the river. We made our way through the water and started talking to the boys, we find out that where we are is a Muslim school.

We ask Nosoro in our broken Swahili if he has any prayer needs. He points at his left knee, holding it with a grimacing face.

We both lay our hands on his knee and begin to pray for him, as we are praying we begin to feel some movement internally in his knee, Brandon feels some part of his knee pop into his hand.

As we end praying, we look at Nasoro and ask about how his knee feels. He starts to do some kicking motions, with a giant smile on his face and starts leaping up and down in excitement showing he can jump!

He then pulls out 5000 schillings and tries to pay us for the healing of his knee!! We tell him 'Its Free!' he asks if he can buy us water, or anything, some kind of repayment but we tell him, 'Its Free, Jesus just healed you'.                                                                                                                     (Nosoro and I)                    


As we begin to walk away he runs across the street, to some friends, then runs back over to us, showing he can move his leg in a kicking motion again, walks away then comes back! As he leaves us, I see him running down the street!
 
I couldn't believe it, Jesus just healed this mans knee right infront of us. With my own eyes, I saw every bit of it unveil. The Joy in this mans face was wild, a giant smile and excitement! God brought the signs and wonders that day, I don't know why sometimes people are healed in certain instances or not but Isaiah 55:8-9 states 
 
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." 
 
As one of many Instances while on the World Race, Jesus slapped me in the face with his reality that day.

  • We saw the same healing in our living room a couple months back. The girl was a gymnast and a dancer, but could do neither and was in need of 4 different surgeries on her one knee. Prayer. A brother who knew what to feel for in the knee. She tested it. Then leaping and dancing wildly about the room…crying tears of joy on her knees, giving thanks, in wonder of God’s mercy and then dancing and leaping again. USA. Tanzania. That’s pretty cool.

  • That’s incredible! I have been praying over husband Larry’s right eye. Cataract was removed June 18. They now tell him he has astigmatism in that eye so the far vision will be 20-20 with glasses,but will remain blurry and with triple vision. Can you join me in praying that without the glasses correction, he will see as before and that his far vision will clear up?

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
