It was a great pleasure to travel to Bremen in Germany with Peter Nickolas where I was to minister, with Peter translating to a group of Bulgarian churches. It was a bit surreal eating Bulgarian food and ministering in Bulgarian while being in Germany.
There was a real sense of the Holy Spirit’s presence from the word go. The first night we attended the church prayer meeting and ended up ministering to a few sick people. One was a lady who had a problem with her bones twisting. Twenty years ago she had had an operation to put rods in both her arms and legs to help keep them straight. This had left her with no feeling in her legs and she was unable to walk without crutches. After we ministered to her the feeling came back and she started to walk without the crutches. The next day, at the conference, she testified to God’s healing power, as did several others who were ministered to the evening before. This led into another time of ministry and more testimonies.
That evening, at a small Bulgarian church in Diepholz, I taught on being a disciple and discipling others. There was a real prophetic outpouring at the end of the meeting which encouraged and blessed us all.
Sunday afternoon four Bulgarian churches came together in Wildeshausen, with about three hundred and fifty attending. From the beginning of the meeting there was a great sense of the Holy Spirit’s presence and I ministered on moving in the power of the Holy Spirit. There were more healings and more testimonies. At the end of the meeting I made an appeal and sixteen people came forward to accept Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. Over half of those were men which is quite unusual as Bulgarian men can be quite reserved like English men. What a blessing it was to minister God’s word, with signs following just as our Lord promised us.
Praise God for what He has started in these churches in Germany please continue to pray for them.
