|God is good and His mercy endures forever! Before we left the States, God told me that
He was going to manifest His glory in Puerto Rico with signs, wonders and miracles
while we worship Him.
He is watchful over His Word to perform it and as we stand in agreement with His Word,
declaring it in expectation of its fulfillment, we will see His glory manifested!
At the beginning of December 2007, Agape Life Ministries
had the honor of ministering in Puerto Rico for the second
time this year. We ministered in three churches this time
and our international team was made up of 7 people:
3 originally from South Africa,
2 originally from Puerto Rico and 2 originally from America.
We truly experienced the love unity of brothers and sisters
in the Lord in fellowship, breaking of bread and prayer and
even with the Pastors of the different churches where we
ministered, there was such a beautiful knitting and bonding
in the love of the Lord “in one accord” that God poured out
the anointing oil and manifested His glory in signs, wonders
We are standing in awe of the Lord’s goodness as we
watched Him move in the meetings. His Presence came in
the worship, then His power and then the gifts of the Holy
Spirit flowed gloriously in great grace, bringing healing to
hearts while Brother Edwin Sepulveda ministered on his
The Word that God gave to the people of Puerto Rico was
to surrender their lives to His Kingly reign by surrender,
to seek His face in intimacy and to get ready for Kingdom
living by stepping over into the life of the Spirit, leaving
behind sin, the flesh and the world.
Many came to full surrender of their lives to
Christ and we give the Lord all the glory for
doing even beyond what we could pray or
imagine. Many were healed, giving testimony
that all pain was gone in backs, necks, knees.
A lady who was tormented with pain all over her
body was completely healed and testified the
following day that she was pain-free and
walking without her cane. A number of legs
grew out and a man that had 4 broken ribs
was healed, all pain was gone and then he
gave his life to Jesus as his Savior.
A notable miracle happened when a lady who
suffered a stroke, having been paralyzed on
the left side and couldn’t walk for a whole year,
was healed. She got up out of her wheelchair,
walking around, her left arm and hand and leg
fully restored to perfect function. God healed
her completely. She walked out to the parking
lot and we met her later in a restaurant, walking
to the restroom. Her daughter and sister were
overcome with joy, praising the Lord. What an
awesome God we serve!
Another lady who suffered from Parkinson’s
disease and couldn’t stand alone, was raised
up, got strength in her legs and walked around
by herself, while the whole congregation
cheered her on, praising the Lord. Both her
and her daughter was overjoyed.
A man who had broken foot bones (after a
heavy piece of machinery fell on his foot) was
healed. All pain was gone and he could walk
normally, giving his testimony afterwards,
praising Jesus for His miracle power!
On the last day, December 10, we visited the
famous fort, El Morro, took communion and
made prophetic declarations over the island,
redeeming the land for the Kingdom. It is
interesting to note that it was on this exact
date in the year 1898 that a peace treaty was
signed in Paris to end the Spanish-American
war and Puerto Rico officially became American territory.
Another interesting “coincidence” was that an elaborate
article about San Juan and its historical landmarks was
published in the travel section of Scripps Treasure Coast
Newspapers on Sunday December 9th, 2007
(Three of the team members live in Port St Lucie on
the Treasure Coast of Florida.)
While we were praying, holding hands in a circle,
declaring the reign of the King of kings, Christ Jesus,
over the island, the wind rose up with such strength that,
for a moment, it blew me off balance; then suddenly it
started raining. We flew out in the afternoon and hours
later an unexpected tropical storm resulted, flooding
the island and left many without electricity.
“Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, give unto the LORD glory and
strength. Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the
LORD in the beauty of holiness. The voice of the LORD is upon the
waters: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD is upon many waters.
The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is
full of majesty.” KJV
The testimonies coming from our team were that God enlarged all of us and stretched us
in different ways, but we all stood in awe of our precious Lord Jesus, as His goodness
passed before us. There is no-one like Him! Something else I personally enjoyed
tremendously was the love and servant-hood between our team members, as each one
just allowed the Holy Spirit to flow. His Name be glorified forever end ever!
Lastly, but of utmost importance, we all want to thank those who have faithfully prayed for
us, for without the prayer covering it would not have been as smooth and easy as it was.
Nothing happens without prayer and your contribution of intercession is invaluable! You
are much appreciated and we praise the Lord for you!
“But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy
door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret
shall reward thee openly.” - KJV
