Missions Trip to Texas, Part 5

missions-trip-texas-5

On day 3 we briefly stopped at Walmart for basic necessities, and we had three divine appointments! One was a woman who had arrived early to work. We stopped her and talked to her about the Lord. We asked if we could pray for her, and she said yes. After I prayed mightily over her, she looked at us and asked what denomination we were. I said, “I am a Spirit-filled, Bible believing Christian with a Baptist background.” She stood there with a sense of awe on her face as we shared about our mission trip and what we had been doing.

The second divine appointment at that Walmart was a Hispanic lady. God amplified her to me and the Holy Spirit compelled me to stop and ask her in Spanish if I could pray for her. The Lord took me over and I prayed a huge blessing over her. A black woman ran over to me while I was praying, and when I opened my eyes, she shouted, “I got some of it!” The Holy Spirit was placing a strong blessing on the Hispanic lady, who had an overjoyed expression, and apparently the blessing fell on the black lady, too. I wonder if the black lady knew Spanish? The Lord was urging us on, so we turned around after the blessing and found the third divine appointment.

We found a lady who said she was a Christian, but we knew that something was off. She asked me to pray for her, and while I was praying, she said an incantation against us. She was a practicing witch. (By the way, there are thousands of witches and warlocks in this country. The entire nation is delighted with Harry Potter, and now the people—including children and teens–are so bored that they have joined wicca. Our churches are asleep. They are oblivious to the hour. Pray for your cities.)

My two ministry partners were hit by the incantation because they were holding hands with her. I did not hold hands with anyone. My main ministry partner told me never to touch people unless I ask permission from the Holy Spirit. I often lay hands for healing or deliverance and end up getting something transferred into myself. So I’m trying to remember to not touch people when I pray. It makes me sad because I have tremendous love and compassion from Jesus whenever I’m praying, and I often can’t help it and accidentally touch the person I’m ministering to.

Back in the car we prayed against the incantation, and we resumed our trip. That day (day 3) we drove 9 hours from Dallas to El Paso. It was so spiritually oppressive that we were affected physically. We felt sick to our stomachs and began coughing. My main ministry partner nearly vomited. We checked into the motel that God indicated, and we interceded mightily and specifically for the city. The Holy Spirit mentioned strongholds by name, and we broke them. It felt like we were praying for hours, but since I didn’t look at my watch, I have no idea how long we prayed for this city. We were spiritually and physically exhausted when we dropped into bed.

From this point on, we bought hot chicken and other protein at various fast-food places. The second half of the trip cost more food-wise because we were spiritually depleted from warfare that we were fighting. Those of you who do deliverance ministry understand what I’m saying. We still spent as little money as possible on this trip.

Stay tuned for part 6 of our missions trip to Texas.

    Sadly, our country’s obsession with witches and warlocks started even before Harry Potter became popular. I think Harry Potter just made us more aware of it. I know when I was in high school there was a group of witches, some of which were my friends. That’s when I got my first real awakening to the spiritual realm, because I thought it was all just a bunch of hocus pocus and just for fun. But one day I was hanging out with them and they were trying to talk to spirits, and the spirit clearly said I had to leave. I had such a creepy feeling. I was just a new believer at the time, but even back then I knew Jesus was the reason I wasn’t welcome. I never went back to that friends house.

      That’s interesting that the demon knew you belonged to Jesus. Once you know that the spiritual realm is real, it’s impossible to go back to believing that all of it is nonsense, which television makes us believe. Even a lot of Christians don’t believe demons are real. Most Christians have never encountered witches and warlocks either, so they believe that they are not real.

    Wow! The point you made about being very careful who we touch in ministry to avoid attacks is very important. People are fraternising with the occult without realising how dangerous that is. It’s always heartwarming to read the accounts of your ministry trip. More grace to you and your partners in Jesus’ name.

    • Susan says:

      I try to remember to always ask the Holy Spirit if it’s okay for me to touch the person He wants me to minister to. One time I was sitting with a wild-looking man from the street at a cafe in a grocery store because the Lord prompted me to ask to pray for him. My ministry partner was with me. I prayed without touching him. I was glad later when I found out more about him.

  3. You continue to amaze me. And I felt that you would be attacked by Satan because of your mission, and boldness. I pray that whatever you are doing today, you will be blessed by the Holy Spirit to the point that Satan has no power to do anything to you. Amen.

    That is tough…human touch is so valuable and important, but wisdom is also valuable and important.

  5. Tope says:

    Susan, this post about your mission trip is very inspiring. I love that you are a “Holy Spirit filled, Bible believing Baptist” It’s the difference between driving an automatic and manual shift vehicle. Best to be powered by the Spirit…it’s the missing ingredient in most churches and lives.
    God bless your ministry.

    Susan
    God bless you for the work you do in His kingdom. Indeed, the chutch needs to wake up before it is too late.

  7. I love that the lady was so blessed she asked you about where you learned to pray that way… people are so out of touch with the power of the Holy Spirit… especially within the church that many of them have never been prayed over powerfully. It’s so sad.

    • Susan says:

      Yes, so many people are out of touch with the power of the Holy Spirit. Yet Jesus commanded His followers not to go anywhere until they were filled with the Holy Spirit and with power so that they could truly impact the world for Christ. We cannot do the work of God without the Holy Spirit.
