Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
I arrived in Rotterdam on February 6th. Our first day on the streets, we saw several people healed and several who surrendered their lives to the Lord as we ministered to them through the word of knowledge. One of those was a young man whom the Holy Spirit led us to look for with an ankle injury wearing a red hat. He was with two of his friends. When he received healing in his ankle, all three of them raised their hands and prayed aloud as they surrendered their lives to Jesus. Another lady was healed at a cross walk when we received a word of knowledge that she had back pain. When the power of God went into her she was so overwhelmed that she began to weep.
The following four days, I taught a sixteen hour course on Power Evangelism at FIRE School of Ministry Europe. Those who attended these sessions learned the essential elements of intercessory prayer and power evangelism to equip them to reach the lost on the streets of Rotterdam. They were astonished and very excited to see people healed and saved each day as we went to the streets.
Wednesday night, we had a special Miracle Night service at the church to reach out to the lost, the sick, and the afflicted. Several unsaved people attended the MIRACLE NIGHT service at FIRE Church Europe due to their need to receive a miracle of healing.
One of those who came to be healed was a female police detective who had suffered for years from terrible back problems, and had twelve of her vertebrae replaced. She had never experienced God in her life before, and wasn’t sure what to expect. During worship, she could feel the presence of God according to her testimony to those who had invited her to the service. When the power of God went through her body and she knew that she was completely healed, she let out a string of expletives to express her astonishment. A few minutes later, she responded to the altar-call and surrendered her life to the Lord Jesus Christ. Afterwards, she received the baptism in the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues! C’MON JESUS!!
THE MUSLIM MAN
Another person who came in the hope of receiving a miracle of healing was a Muslim man who spoke neither English nor Dutch. His wife, who accompanied him spoke Dutch and Farsi, and she did what she could to help him understand. He had been suffering with terrible, chronic pain throughout his body – especially on his right side. When the power of God went through his body, and he knew that he was healed, he was astonished! Afterwards, with his wife’s help, I spoke with him in English, the interpreter translated into Dutch and his wife interpreted it into Farsi. He soon experienced deep conviction of his sin, and of God’s righteousness, and of the coming Judgement. When we shared the Gospel of Jesus with him, he immediately embraced the message and received Jesus Christ as God’s Son and his Savior. He surrendered all to Jesus as the Lord of his life. When I told him his sins were forgiven, he began to weep and tremble with emotion. HALLELUJAH! There were also several others who were healed, and saved and who received the baptism in the Holy Spirit. That meeting lasted until midnight.
IN APRIL, I’ll be flying back to Africa for a week of ministry. I will be ministering again in the Healing and Revival Conference in Yaoundé, Cameroon on the 12th and 13th. PLEASE ASK GOD how you can PARTNER WITH US on this trip.
Our first BPOM outreach on the streets of Atlanta after I returned from The Netherlands was awesome. Many of our homeless friends were excited to hear about what God did in Rotterdam. As I shared testimonies with them, several of them received the faith to be healed and asked for ministry. As we ministered to them they were instantly healed, and a great excitement and expectation began to build among them. A few minutes later, after I preached a short message, I urged them to choose then and there whom they would serve. Twelve of them responded, raised both hands and prayed aloud as they surrendered all to the Lord Jesus Christ. This happened under the huge I-20 overpass during a thunderstorm. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
Each of you, by partnering with us are sharing in the great harvest of souls saved, backsliders restored, sick bodies healed, and believers equipped to do the works of Jesus. WE APPRECIATE YOU MORE THAN WORDS CAN ADEQUATELY EXPRESS.
Your inner-city and international missionaries,
Joel and Pat Crumpton
