The second night of the conference was equally powerful, with deep, extended worship, strong teaching and more miracles.
By the third night, more than 4,000 people were gathered, and again the miracle power of God was displayed through healings and salvations. Each night the healings were confirmed as those who testified of healings were diligently questioned or tested.
Humbled And Awed
God truly showed Himself great and marvelous in Moa. Pastor Jose told us that, “No foreigners or outsiders have ever been allowed the opportunity you have been given.” A crowd of this size had not been addressed by a non-Cuban since 1959. We were humbled and awed to witness the outpouring of God’s Spirit upon the precious saints of Moa! All praise be to God!
Crying Out For More
The next day, after the final anointing meeting with the pastors and leaders in Moa, the team drove 12 hours to Santa Clara in central Cuba. After 5 hours sleep, it was time for the next conference to begin!
As in Moa, God was faithful to respond to the hunger of the church leaders in Santa Clara. Though most of the attendees at this particular conference were from a conservative background, they were deeply impacted by the power of God.
The final night, the Spirit of God came in such marked manifestation that the meeting continued on through the night, with people still “down under the power” of the Holy Spirit when the ministry team arrived the next morning!
At each of the three conferences, there were four full teaching sessions per day, plus an evening teaching. There were multiple opportunities for the leaders to pray and respond, and for the impartation of the Spirit and love of God. The Cuban pastors and leaders drank it all in with open hearts and passionate gratitude, and still cried out for more!
God’s Great Work
We had seen God move in miracle power in the first two conferences, and arrived in Havana to witness yet another profound working of the Holy Spirit: sincere unity among the pastors and leaders.
There were over 1,000 registered leaders at the Havana conference, representing 34 different denominational groups. Included were pastors from Brazil, Mexico and Canada. To witness the love and friendship among them brought tears to our eyes and thanks to God for His marvelous working.
To accommodate all the registrants, the church had creatively set up “rooms” on rooftops and in other open areas with video feed on small t.v. screens.
God again revealed His power and love in every meeting. The worship times were joyful, tender and powerful. The teachings were eagerly received and responded to, as the Cuban pastors opened their hearts to all that God desired to do. During the special anointing service, most went down under the power of the Holy Spirit and all were deeply touched. Many married couples were prayed for together, and God tenderly and powerfully ministered to them.
The surrounding community was again impacted during the evening meetings. Crowds pressed into the facility, and filled the blocks around the church. Again, many were healed, saved and delivered, and experienced a powerful impartation from the Spirit of God.
