Early March was a time for miracles in
Guatemala & El Salvador, as our team from Faith Alive Bible College /
Canadian Fire School of Missions impacted lives in a number of settings.
We ministered in numerous settings, including churches, a Bible School,
children's outreaches, feeding the hungry, and even put on a breakfast for
women who work on the streets.
One young man at one of our services sat
in a wheelchair and allowed us to pray for him. As soon as the prayer was
done, he was unbuckling his seatbelt of his wheelchair wanting to stand
up. He was a little shaky at first, but eventually was kicking a
soccer ball and giving me a ride in his wheelchair! Jesus Christ is
the same, yesterday, today, and forever. He is still the Great Physician!
Asking a young man if he'd like prayer...
After we prayed he immediately unbuckled his seatbelt on his wheelchair &he wanted to stand up... something he couldn't do before!
The first few steps were shaky, but after a bit he was standing on his own. He was so happy!
Not only did he give me a ride in his wheelchair, but we also had him kicking a soccer ball back and forth with us!

Our small team of Brad Mayer and Matthieu Desourdis ministered 21 times in just 10 full days in the Philippines at the end of February. We preached in numerous churches, prisons, schools, to youth, and to leaders. God opened many doors as we saw over 200 come to Christ and hundreds more were ministered to in regards to the call to evangelize.
When we saw a young gifrl come into one of the services we ministered in with a cast on both her legs with a bar between her feet, Matthieu mentioned that he knew a bit about what that was like as he also wore a brace like this on his legs when he was a child. Matthieu prayed for the little girl and within just a couple of days, the casts came off. Freely he received, freely he gave.
A young man named Dino found his way into a service in Bacolod, Philippines where his life was changed. After a message about the miraculous, the faith of the people was stirred up, and a Filipino believer prayed with Dino three times after the service. After the third prayer, Dino put down his crutches and walked without them for the first time in sixteen years! To see a video of this man taking his first steps without crutches in many years, check out www.facebook.com/canadianfiremissions and find the post from March 3, 2018.
