Old story: Brazil - May 2009 (part 1 of 3)


Some of you may know that we went to Fortaleza, Brazil in May of 2009.  It was 9 wild days of God stories.  I thought some of you might not have had a chance to read them.  Here is the first of 3 emails.  Blessings! 

Hello everyone!  Family and friends!

As many should know, Jessica and I went to Fortuleza, Brazil on the 7th a couple of days ago.  We got in to the country without any problems and all luggage accounted for!  Yeah! Miracle number one!   We have been ministering to the local churches down here in the mornings and in the evenings.  We have both been really stretched in our giftings and our relationship with God.  We have stayed quite joyful though and we can't help it!  God has already done so many amazing things around us and through us.  We are making great friends with our translators who are lifesavers.  It is hard to give a prophetic word to someone without speaking their language. 

I wish I could be more detailed but I only have a short time on this computer.  I promise to find more time for Jess and I to tell of all the wonderous things we have encountered.  There are many miracles happening around us as well as many hearts are getting touched.  The captives are truly being released from the enemies hands.  So much freedom and joy is being released here.

Bless you all!  We are doing well and tomorrow we go to a school/orphanage to bless the kids and others.  The power of God is real and has been evident everywhere we go!  Thanks for your prayers, keep them up!  They are effective and powerful!

Real quick testimony: 

Tonight a girl came up to me and asked for prayer, then she asked if I would pray for her boyfriend who did not know God.  After talking to the boy, about 16 yrs old, he said that he was blown away at all the great things and healings that God was doing.  I told him more about who Jesus is and he wanted very much to have Jesus be a part of his life.  So we all prayed together.  He accepted Jesus as his savior and friend and we prayed more over him and released the Joy of the Lord over him. Afterwards I asked how he felt..."I feel so so good, wonderful!"   Praise God! 

Also Jessica had a prophetic word of knowledge for stomach pain, and a girl came up with severe stomach acid problems and severe pain in her stomach.  After a short prayer the presence of God fell on her powerfully and she was healed 100% from all pain!!!!!  She left while hugging Jessica with a big smile on her face.  (there must have been at least 40-50 healings over the past couple nights!)

We love you all!

Jesse and Jessica Skinner
