REVIVALPOST from TAHITI (Summer 2011)
French Polynesia (South Pacific)
Magalie actually had this dream around mid-June and she shared it to Edualdo and I on Friday, August 12th
You guys asked me to housesit for you while you would be gone away on a trip and you gave me some instructions: 'Rest well, do not work, only do what God tells you to do. Do not worry about anything else!' Then you guys left.
In the middle of the night, at 2:00 AM sharp, I heard banging on the gate and as I woke up to see what was going on. A man was there covered with blisters and puss all over his body and he said, 'I want to go into Aline and Edualdo's swimming pool because when I'll go, I know I will be healed.' (Aline--in the natural, we do not have a pool)
I (Magalie) was very hesitant and I said 'but they are not home' to which he responded: 'Never mind, they would let me come in if they were here ... please let me in' ... He was so insistent that I let him in. As soon as he came out of the pool, he was completely healed! By the way, he was all naked (Aline--at this point I asked Magalie if she was shocked by his nakeness to which she said, 'Oh no, not at all, I had so much compassion because he had blisters and opened wounds all over his body').
Then there was another banging on the gate ... as I opened, I saw a crowd of people, so many of them, some lame, others handicapped, blind folks, people with missing limbs, cancers, old and young standing in line and waiting to come in through the gate and jump in the pool. So I let them in and they took their turn to go in the pool, get healed and leave. It went on for 10 days night and day. I was very tired but all I did was to welcome them and bless them as they left!"
WOW !!!!!!!!!! Three days before Magalie told us the dream, Edualdo got up during the night with Matthew 14:14 -- "When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick" -- the verse took on a greater significance to us after Magalie told us the dream above! We were so excited and also in awe of what God is about to do in this nation !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! God was moving a lot in our hearts in the area of compassion and healing ... but now even more!
HEALING SEMINAR (Aug. 5th & 6th)
A report from Torea Manjard who taught 2 sessions -- "This is a praise report from our last ''Healing and the Kingdom'' week end. Our goal was to take advantage of the momentum that was gained last year to soar even higher in the realities of the Kingdom in order to see Tahiti become all that she's called to be : a beacon of God's glory in the South Pacific, a place of refuge for the broken and needy, and so much more. We had about 3 or 4 people healed of different eye diseases. One of 'em couldn't drive at night and could hardly read his bible, he came forward to testify of his healing with a bible in his hands. Another person had had surgery in her left eye that had left it in major discomfort even after 2 months, the discomfort and pain left progressively until it was completely gone at the end of the week end. Another one removed his glasses and began to extatically testify of the presence of God he felt coming over his eyes. Among other ones, a young man received a revelation about God being so much bigger than any sickness which resulted in the complete disappearing of a stubborn pain in his belly he had been experiencing for a couple of days. We are expecting many more testimonies to come in during the next few days and would like to take advantage of this report to thank all of you for standing with ''Visions of the Harvest" ministry (Earl & Jana Thurner, Edualdo & Aline Cicero, and ourselves) in prayer to see Jesus becoming the desire of this nation. We love y'all !! ''Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end'' Isaiah 9 : 7"
We were deeply moved because our brother Torea and fellow in the ministry has been sick for so long (with a congenital kidney disease) and he was very strong to declare that we should not build our belief about healing around our own experience but according to the Word of God! In other words, the Jesus in us is not sick, He is totally healthy. Therefore, we can pray with boldness for the healing of the sick regardless of how we feel or how sick we may be, believing for our own healing which has already been purchased at Calvary for us!!
YOUTH WITH A MISSION (YWAM) TEAMS
We have been blessed in the last few months with YWAM teams from France, French Canada, and Hawaii/New Zealand. Each team is different and each one brings a unique touch of the goodness of God to this nation and especially among our youth. We often help coordinating the teams' schedule. We have lots in mind for the coming months: Healing Rooms, Treasure Hunts, Marama Nights, and another session of the School of Transformation beginning on September 24th ... Right now we are getting ready for a praise and worship night to be held at the Center of Transformation before the end of August.
Our 3 weeks (June/July 2011) in France were great. We went there as a family. The purpose was to visit our relatives and especially our fathers. My father (Aline) is 93 years old and Edualdo's is 83. We were able to drive to Spain and spend 2 days there and 2 days in Paris with Kori as our guide. Special memories to last for a lifetime!
Kori (23) will take a one year break from her studies and is looking for job openings in Asia. Erika (20) will start at the end of August her 2-year business school in Tahiti. Silvio (19) will fulfill his dream to study music in Pasadena (guitar performance major at LAMA "Los Angeles Music Academy") and Benji (16) will continue vocational high school (computer major) in Tahiti.
Quite a few of you are our Facebook friends and can view photos of our stay in France! (Internet link: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150223825445904.313558.586525903)
