Pastor and First Lady
Thank you so much for the vision you spoke! I told God I will listen to the recording of you speaking our 2020 Vision EVERYDAY!
I was asked out of the blue yesterday by a person hiring for a military base to send them my resume. Then today I was asked to write an upbeat Gospel Jingle, sing it & record it to be continually played on the radio, Facebook, etc… before the minister speaks. I’m SO EXCITED FOR THE EXTRA ORDINARY THAT GOD HAS FOR ME!! I am stepping out on BOLDNESS this year!
This is the testimony of Brother Henry Rabonu as it was sent to us.
In the first week of September 2019, Henry Rabonu, a 17 year old student had body pains that started from his legs and went all over with headache. Not knowing the cause, his mother took him to the hospital for check up. He was given medications only and sent home.
On the 9th of September, his parents took him back to hospital as his legs were getting swollen and he was admitted that day at Nadi Hospital. On the 11th he was further transferred to the Lautoka Hospital.
Henry’s condition grew worse. He underwent numerous tests and biopsies to see what type of disease may have caused his condition but the doctors found nothing. They may have assumed that Henry has S.L.E which consists of 7 different types of diseases, but to no avail. The I.C.U, the surgeons still could not out a finger on a particular disease. Henry was in so much pain 24/7.
Being tired from all the tests and biopsies, all he wanted to do was to go home. His father Nemani Rabonu kept saying “be patient my son, you will be home soon”. At one point Henry had lost consciousness and was gone for 20 minutes after a female doctor while in a hurry operated on Henry before going into the children’s ward to check on a patient. His father was so furious the way the doctor operated on him. After giving him a needle to make him numb, in seconds she was already cutting on him. Henry was not numb yet as he felt the knife piercing through his body and that’s when he lost himself`. His father kept on praying “Lord this is my son Henry do something”`. Henrys family attends the village Methodist church but they frequently sow seed into the Word of Faith International Church.
Henrys grandmother asked if Pastor Downing could pray for him on Tuesday night December 18th –the 2nd night that Pastor preached at the Word of Faith. Everyone at the building stood in agreement over Henry’s healing. Meanwhile at the hospital Henry couldn’t go to the restroom alone- he has to go with someone’s else’s help. To the parents surprise Henry got out of bed and headed for the restroom `on his own. The next`morning he came with his mother all the way from the hospital that is about 45mins drive to be able to sow some bread for the campers breakfast. `Well sure enough on Friday the 20th of December, Henry was free to go home.
With no disclosure on the doctors report they’re still amazed not knowing what happened. Henry came home to families and relatives waiting to welcome him home. On Sunday afternoon the 22nd of December he came with his family to be part of the closing of the camp To God be the glory.
Good Morning Pastor.
I have to tell you this!
You been talking about praying on our jobs .We have had 2 tragedies here this year, down falls for the company, and layoffs. A tremendous amount of people are leaving the company. I still have been praying, I know God has me on assignment. We had our townhall meeting this morning on how the company is doing and the future of the company. This meeting is held once a year. Well! They just reported to us that in 2017 we were $3.8 million in the hole and that caused lay offs and 1/2 bonuses were still given.
2018 the company was about $1.8 million in the hole but sales for the year was around $4.2 million. We still had a lot of people we owed and that caused a good bit of companies to blacklist us. The morale was down and people started to retire and some even quit.
BUT GOD! 2019 report was that the company came out of the hole in 6mths time (Oct-Dec 2018) (Jan.-Mar.2019)
The company made well over $5.1 million and bonuses were received for 2018 and 2019 for April. Raised will be given in April. The blacklist of companies came back with multiple opportunities for business. Businesses from all over. I know this might be small to some but I just wanted to share and say prayer definitely works!
Thanks Pastor for being the Great leading Pastor you are!
After 31 years of standing on the word of the Lord Jesus Christ, God reversed dishonorable discharge into an honorable discharge from the military. As a result I’m able to seek medical treatment assistance from the VA hospital. Moreover, I’m now entitled to all the benefits that comes with an honorable discharge Praise God.
Sometime back on one of the periscope calls pastor prayed and said God was going to continue to elevate me in area of work. I was temporarily promoted to the Civilian Personnel Division Chief I have been praying to that I would receive this as a permanent position. I know I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me and the timing worked out so I know it was God. I continue to seek peace and confirmation that comes with knowing this is His will. I started there in fall of 2016 and it’s only been 18 months and I’ve been promoted twice. Extremely humbled and equally amazed at what God is doing.
As you know or may not know I have been in a new position since the middle of Nov of 2017. I have been praying for 10 years for the Lord to move from the front desk but nothing ever came. Finally my Director (not my manager) was talking one day and mentioned that she had to find someone for the Billing and Coding position and I spoke up and told her that I would do it. She agreed and talked it over with my manager. The position came with a pay raise and own office even though I was not qualified for it. A memo came out last week that all persons that had access to patients chart in a manner of billing needed to be Certified Billing and Coding personnel. Instead of my now boss finding another person that is certified to take my position my boss is sending me to class to become a Certified Coder and the Company is paying for it!! I read my “RECEIVING THE ABUNDANCE” decree every day! I have it right over my computer with my name highlighted. I have a coworker that comes in my office now and wants to know what has my Pastor sent out because she wants a copy of it..lol. I know that what I have longed for and have seen and waited for is about to come to pass! The Lord has already told me to not get comfortable with this because He has much more in store for me! I am His treasured possession and I belong to Him! Thank you Pastor and 1st Lady for always being that guiding light and always speaking a God sent word into my life. Love you both dearly!
September 12th of 2016 I was shopping at my local grocery store and fell due to water on the floor and fractured my knee. I reached out to their insurance company of the local grocery store asking about filing a claim to pay for the medical expenses. The offer I received would not even cover the CT scan. The business office at the hospital suggested I consult a lawyer to get the insurance company to pay the bills. I attended Word Explosion was wearing a knee brace and decided to act in faith and remove it. After a year the lawyer finally called and asked what I wanted from the insurance company. I asked that the insurance company to accept responsibility for the medical expenses, and to cover their expenses. THIS YEAR that company has finally offered a settlement which is 10 times the amount of the All the expenses combined and 25 times the original offer!!!
First of all, I’ll say this.. I’m in no way bragging on me. Promotion comes from the LORD. Any ability I have or favor I was shown comes from HIM. 2016 was a traumatic year for me. I’ll not go into details, but it was bad. I really began leaning on the LORD and became consistent with tithing and giving money to others in faith in addition to tithe. I began a new journey by moving to an area with no employment. I got hired November 2016, with no experience at all in the job category. In less than 2 months, I was promoted to another position within the same company. Another 2 months passed and I was promoted to lead of the area I started in (same company). Later the same year, I received a significant raise. And again in about a years time after my start date, I’ve been promoted again to an office job, salary position, all in the same company. Increase after increase after increase.. all with little or no experience in each position. That’s the favor of GOD!!!! And That’s just the beginning. I will continue to tithe and give more and more. At this rate, I’ll own the company soon. GLORY BE TO THE MOST HIGH. He gives the increase and causes a harvest of great generosity in us.
Hearing from the Lord, November 21, 2017.
The Lord woke me up about 2:30 am and I went and got my notebook and pen. Prayed in the Spirit for a moment, then just listened. He directed me to Isaiah 64:11. It says, “The holy and beautiful Temple where our ancestors praised you has been burned down, and all the things of beauty are destroyed.” At first (being 2:30 am), I thought… what? Did I miss something? Then I prayed in the spirit again briefly then I got this following word, along with Instruction to whomever reads it.
The instruction is:
There is one place written where it has a personal name. In that location, whomever is reading shall put their own name in there instead.
Then the Lord said,
This was an image of the church. (Isaiah 64:11*) My body. My church had become desolate, overrun, segregated, separated, and condemned. But no longer. I am raising them up. An army of prayer warriors. My kings and priests are silent no longer. The words of their mouth have been heard. Their outcries have been heard and no longer will the enemy overrun them. The temple is no longer destroyed. For I have been lifted up in great expectation and I will meet and exceed those expectations. I will surpass your goals and dreams. My body, My church is lifted up with Me. When I am lifted up, you are lifted up.
For we are one. No longer are you down trodden and disconnected. No longer are you defeated and disturbed. For I am strong and mighty and I will not be ashamed of my church. You, church, are strong and mighty. A great reckoning. Mighty!! Let the enemy shake and cower. For the time has come. The outreach has begun. My word is spreading. That means I am spreading. I am being outstretched to all the lands. Can you not feel my strength and might? The enemy can literally do no-thing to stop it. Even their plans to slow it have failed. I cannot be stopped. Therefore, you church, you body, you (your name here) cannot be stopped. Let the nations hear and tremble. I, THE LORD, SHALL NOT BE STOPPED. I am mighty and I will no longer let My people be ashamed. Rise up church. Rise up my people. Be alive. Be strong. Be courageous. I have spoken. It is finished! It is finished! It is finished and complete, says The Lord of Hosts. Amen.
After diligently going over the prophesied of God from pastor A.L. Downing, I have been receiving financial income from uncommon avenues. Pastor Downing prophesied that great blessing of financial wealth is flowing into my life on a ridiculous level. Just recently, I have received $300 from an unusually source-. Praise God the supernatural financial wealth flow has started. I do not despise small starts. “this is the start of the million dollar flow of financial wealth prophesied into my life by A.L. Downing”
After attending Living Faith Ministries for several weeks, Pastor Downing ask if I would setup the on-line video streaming system. However, at that time, I did not know anything about online video streaming . However, after receiving my assignment from the Lord through Pastor Downing, I immediately began to pray in the Holy Spirit.
Afterwards I started downloading solutions by the Holy Spirit.
Now you are experiencing the newly designed website and streaming video service through the power of the Holy Spirit wisdom. Keep in mind I never designed and implemented a complex project of Audio/Video and website design.
Praise God and the Lord Jesus Christ!
