As Jennifer’s young family grew, the family’s small apartment became simply TOO small. Jennifer began to pray that she and her husband could purchase a home, and that God would provide the money needed for a down payment. The answer didn’t come quickly, but she continued to pray, trust and confess God’s provision for over a year. Late in 2017 they found their new home-to-be, but they had to clear Escrow and that required a financial blessing that had not yet arrived. They moved ahead by faith, and when the down payment came due, God came through, right on time. They moved into their new home in March of this year, and are praising God for this special blessing.
Some weeks ago, Elvia was invited to Harbor Christian Center by her grandson. She enjoyed the services and started to attend on a regular basis. Following a fall which injured her knee, Elvia was in a lot of pain and needed to use a cane when she walked. On Sunday, May 20, she responded to an altar call and received prayer for healing. Of Catholic background, this was a new experience for her, and she strongly felt the power and presence of God. Following prayer, she no longer needed her cane and is now able to walk normally again, completely free of pain.
Sal wasn’t feeling well. After a visit to the doctor and a trip to the hospital, he received a diagnosis of pneumonia, was given medication and sent home. He received prayer, and the next day he told his mother he was feeling better. When he returned to the doctor, he was told “No pneumonia!” To God be the glory!
Something was missing….his truck. When Rudy A. went to where he had parked his truck, it wasn’t there….stolen during the night. He immediately followed up on the situation, filing a report with the police and also calling Pastor Louie for prayer. God heard his prayer and the police did their part, calling Rudy soon afterward to let him know his truck had been found and was in drivable condition. Praise God for answered prayer.
Shortly before Easter, Magnolia left her notebook, which contained notes concerning faith, the Word of God and prayer, in a car that her son also uses. A young adult woman he knows picked up the notebook, and instead of just glancing at it, took it with her to read. A few weeks later, she returned it to Magnolia, letting her know she’d been at HCC on Easter, and as a result of reading Magnolia’s notes, had decided to leave a lifestyle that was not pleasing to God. Our God is an awesome God!
Louis, the adult son of one of our faithful HCC family members, recently experienced extreme weight loss (195 lbs.) over a three-month period. Following medical tests, doctors determined that it was a a thyroid condition, and not cancer as they had feared. Louis and his family placed their trust in the Lord, and following treatment, the condition was corrected. His faith and that of his family is stronger than ever, and they are rejoicing in his healing.
Greg, one of our young men at Harbor Christian Center, was recently hospitalized for five days due to an intestinal blockage. The doctors were considering surgery. After the congregation prayed for Greg on Sunday morning, the condition was resolved. No surgery needed! Greg is home from the hospital.
