Hello friends! I’m Kristan Christian from India. I was a student in the mobile DTS with YWAM Scotland. It was a breathtaking experience! I had such an amazing time and I felt like God was with me every single moment and wherever I went. He is so good! This is a story about my experience during my Edinburgh outreach.
God working in Edinburgh
I was in Edinburgh on outreach doing evangelism when I met a guy named David sitting on the street. I had seen him twice before but this time God spoke to me and told me to talk to him. So I went and David told me lots of things like how he had left his family and felt like a failure.
God started to speak to me and tell he that David’s left hand was causing him pain. I doubted this and though, “that is not possible”. However, God told me “trust me my son”. He said this 5 times before I had the courage to finally open my mouth and ask David. David confirmed that he has been having pain in his left hand. At that moment I felt so connected with God, like I was just sitting in my Father’s lap.
The faith to persevere
I asked David if I could pray for healing and he said “yes”. I prayed for healing and asked if he had felt any improvement. David responded by saying “no, no improvement at all”. I prayed the second, third, fourth and fifth time but still no changes, no healing. I began to doubt again. But my Father said, “You can do this because I have given you authority and there is no sickness in my kingdom.”
I prayed again with renewed hope and faith. David suddenly stood up, gave me a hug and started crying. Father God had healed him! He accepted Jesus as his Saviour and has decided to go back to his family. I was able to bless and encourage him with the good news that his Heavenly Father loves him so much. I did not see David again on the streets of Edinburgh throughout the remainder of my outreach.
Lessons from DTS
Throughout the mobile DTS I learned a lot and grew a lot in my faith. I have learned two things from Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me and that God is my provider. I walk by faith with Jesus who is our Lord of lords and King of kings. I encourage everyone to gaze on His face and experience the trinitarian God.
