Yeahhh God!!! I believe Him!
As Matt and Dan rode towards the town of Jinja on the back of the boda
bodas, they saw a man surrounded by a group of people, laying on the
ground to the left of the road. As the bodas slowed, the man, who was
covered in blood, came to his feet. He’d obviously been hit by a car or
thrown off of a boda, but seemed OK. The drivers kept moving.
As the boda bodas came around a slight bend in the road, Matt and Dan
noticed a motorcycle laying there. Its pieces were strewn across the
road. As the bodas slowed, a young girl of about 7 years old came into
view. She was wearing a pink dress and her face and arms were covered
in blood, but she at least was standing.
But just past her, a group of about 15 people were surrounding
something else on the road. The boda bodas stopped in front of the
group and a small boy, also about 7 years old, came into view. His body
was laying in the middle of the road.
He was lifeless.
“He’s dead,” they thought.
A man shaked the boy, trying to bring him back to life, but he lay limp.
Dan and Matt pushed through the crowd to get to the boy who had a four
inch bleeding bulge on his forehead. His mouth and ear was spilling
Matt prayed as Dan looked around for a ride to get the boy to the
It was then that Austin arrived on another boda boda that was coming
from the other direction. Austin jumped off of the motorcycle and
immediately ran to the boy.
“The kid’s dead,” Dan told him.
Dan told Austin that someone in the crowd was willing to take the boy
to the hospital. The two of them and another man carried the lifeless
boy’s body to the car.
“Do you feel a pulse or see him breathing?” Dan asked Austin.
Austin stopped his prayer mid-sentence, looked up, and simply responded,
As they lay the boy in the backseat of the car, Austin pulled his
sweatshirt off and put it under the boy’s head. As he did this, the
boy’s chest started to rise and fall.
He was breathing.Afterward, Matt said, “Once we pulled up I was scared, shocked, and felt useless. I was
looking at a lifeless child. A million things started to create a wall
in my mind. Then God busted through all of the feelings and said, ‘hold
on, I’m bigger than that… pray.’ So, I did.”
Yeahhh God!!! I believe Him!
Thank you, Seth, for posting this…just had a neighbor bring her 40ish son home to die….He has been in the hospital for two months and they could do nothing more for him..Her only other son died in his sleep at age 35 with a massive heart attack.I needed to read this….to believe that God can turn this situation around, make Himself real to this widow who has also taken in an unmarried granddaughter who just had a baby boy two days ago…I have prayed for her and desire for her to know the reality of our Living God…Her name is Joan…
It is very obvious that the boy was NOT DEAD. I don’t know what happened but there is a rational answer I’m sure.
Well,that is what the western world-view says!
I AM SICK OF THE WESTERN WORLD VIEW! The Bible is born out of the Eastern world view. We teach from the Word which exudes the eastern world view, BUT WE CONTINUE TO LIVE IN AND PRACTICE THE WESTERN WORLD VIEW!
We need young leaders to speak up, be bold, and continue to pursue the kingdom as Jesus taught us. For all of you who long for authentic dynamic Christianity, I encourage you to JUST GO FOR IT, and forget about what kind of fool you might look like.
Who’s fool are you?
I wonder, as we understand who we are, who God is, & who we are together in the relationship we have, that we will begin to find the supernatural the natural?
WOW!!!!!!!!!!! GOD IS AMAZING
Just a thought….
If Jesus says “Forgive those who persecute you”..its a command, we must do it
If Jesus says “Do not worry about your life”…again, is that not a command?
And didnt Jesus say “go heal the sick, raise the dead ,cast out demons?….surely thats a command and if we are not doing it, does that mean we ae being disobedient?
I think this kinda stuff should be normal for a christian, nomatter what the world says. We live by different rules….we live by the rules of the Kingdom where nothing is impossible with God.
Praise God for those young people living the kingdom life!

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.
