Last week was an amazing week. It all started several months ago when two Israeli believers were inspired by YouTube videos of Todd White. If you have not seen Todd’s testimony, he was saved out of decades of drug addiction. He now shares Yeshua with nearly everyone he meets, and there is usually a healing or word of knowledge involved.
These young men felt that if Todd could simply take God at his word, then certainly they could. They began to go out on the streets of Tel Aviv and ask people if they needed healing. Most of the people they prayed for were healed. It began to spread throughout our congregation and now much of the body of believers in Israel.
Todd White in Israel
When we heard that Todd would be in Israel, we arranged a night for him to minister to Israeli believers. GODTV, where I serve as the Israel Regional Director, agreed to host the event. Over 300 people came—standing room only.
On the way to the meeting, I asked Todd to lay hands on me and pray that I, too, would be able move in the supernatural as I shared Yeshua with Israelis. While I know that I can go directly to God and pray for such things, I have learned that when someone who is doing it prays for you, there is a special “oomph.”
That was Sunday night. We stayed in Jerusalem all week in a hotel for the annual FIRM conference. On the second morning, I saw Mahmoud cleaning my room. I asked him if he needed healing. His knee was in pain. We prayed and, what do you know, this Muslim man was instantly healed! I shared with him about Yeshua. The next day, he came to the room and said to Elana, “Please thank your husband for praying for me. I have no pain in my knee. I can’t believe it!”
The next day I met Achmad. He had back pain—I have learned that most hotel workers have back pain. I prayed for him, the presence of God came, and he, too, was healed. The smile on their faces after God healed them was amazing.
Rafa’s Knee Brace
The next morning, Rafa (also a Muslim), who works in the restaurant in the hotel, had a knee brace on. I prayed for him and I could feel the power of God going into him. He was instantly healed and overjoyed. The next day, he was all smiles and we videotaped him.
The day before we left, I saw another worker cleaning rooms. He was a Sudanese refugee. We have many in Israel who fled the racism, rape and murder from Sudanese Arabs. He told me that on Sunday, he was scheduled to see a doctor because his back was in so much pain he could not even work. We prayed and he told me felt something like heat and electricity going into him and was instantly healed. We taped him and saw him the next day—still healed.
