We had a good group of local links â€“ about 200 of them, including many YWAMers. They did a great job talking and praying with those who responded. Once again you could sense the power of God at work, as many were healed physically and others were set free from emotional pain and hurts from their past. This is a major step for many people in their journey toward God â€“ but even more important is the follow up from here on. I was talking with one of our translators today, who is the youth worker in a local high school â€“ it was exciting to hear his plans for mentoring and raising up leaders amongst the youth. Encouraging them to begin discipling other students and friends.

Seventeen-year-old John hurt his back playing rugby and came to tonightâ€™s show with a very sore back. He came forward to give his life to Jesus, and while at the altar, received prayer for his back. He was instantly healed and walked home without any pain.
She could hardly contain her emotions as she relayed how God had touched her tonight through the performance of the teams. Heaving sobs, Chante 14, told how she had walked to the meeting, a backslidden Christian harboring intense hatred toward a close friend. At the call to the altar, she felt a pull to go forward to re-dedicate her life to the Lord. After talking and praying with a local link, she felt great relief and was ready to reconcile with her friend.
Twelve year-old Ashley was so touched by the teamsâ€™ ministry tonight, that he walked over to a local link and asked to be lead to the Lord. Asked why he wanted Jesus in his life, he replied that he wanted to leave the bad stuff.
