When Jim met Alonza during his short-term trip to Latin America, Alonza was suffering from the physical effects of old age and struggled to walk. His wife was a follower of Christ, but Alonza’s heart was hardened because of the challenges he’d faced throughout his life.
Despite Alonzo’s hard heart, Jim presented the gospel to him. That day the Holy Spirit softened his heart and Alonza received Christ as his Savior.
As Jim and his translator made their way to the door, his translator stopped in his tracks.
“God just told me to pray for his healing. Can I do that?”
Both Jim and his translator immediately turned and walked back into the home. Together, they laid hands on Alonza, asking the Lord to heal his legs. As the pair finished praying, Alonza rose from the floor … entirely healed from his ailment!
Today Alonza’s testimony is a reminder that God was, is and always will be the ultimate Healer with the power to heal our souls and bodies through the Name of Jesus Christ.
