November 1999 : Mariposa, CA
Elijah Ministries was right in the heart of GOLD country. From November 11, through November 15, we were with Pastors Henry and Grace Falany of the Sierra Faith Center Mariposa, Calif. This beautiful community and Church sets where the Mother Load of Gold was discovered in 1849 that brought forth the Gold Rush. I want to tell you I found something more that Gold, I found diamonds. Henry and Grace and their children are diamonds. These are precious jewels that God is setting in a golden vessel called Sierra Faith Center. Here is a short report of part of the working of the Lord at the meetings: MICHAEL MAIXNER – OF ELIJAH MINISTRIES – AT SIERRA FAITH CENTER! God has used Michael mightily in these meetings. His ministry of The Word has been revelatory and the healing power of God, as well as the prophetic, has flowed from heaven. At the beginning of last night’s service there was an air of expectancy. The presence of the Lord was great. Worship began, the shofar was blown, we sang “”Blow the Trumpet in Zion.”” The praise and worship was elevated to a higher level. As Pastor Carman (Pastor of “”His House”” in Madera, Ca.) and his worship team led us in praise and worship The Holy Spirit brought upon the people a sense of awe. Many went to the floor on their faces in humble adoration and worship. There was a silence for an extended period of time. The weight of His Glory was very evident. Michael Maixner II, Michael’s son, sensed The Lord giving a Word out of Zeph. 1:7 …… “”Be silent in the presence of The Lord God; for the day of The Lord is at hand, For The Lord has prepared a sacrifice, offer unto the Lord the sacrifice of praise. (this was happening) He has invited His guests.”” Healing began early in the service. Pastor Henry called for any to testify of what God has and was doing. Several responded and gave witness to The Lord touching them and bringing healing to them. Both physical as well as emotional healing was being released. It was during the time of worship that Pastor Grace was healed of great pain in her lower abdomen. Carl, a man who the night before was in great pain throughout his whole body, (stiff across the shoulder and down his legs, headaches and stomach pain) was now free of pain and dancing before The Lord and jumping up and down. Mary, a lady who, with her husband John, had traveled 300 miles to receive healing of cancer was also mightily touched by the compassion to Jesus. The Lord ministered to her and her testimony is that she knows The Lord healed her. She has not felt this well in a long time!! She was also hard of hearing in both ears. She thought, while she traveled this far, she might as well get it all taken care of. The Lord restored her hearing!!! The lead guitar player on the worship team wept for joy when he was healed form severe back pain. Dave, a man suffering from headaches, experienced healing and release. A woman suffering with chest pain and heavy emotional problems reported she was healed and set free. Others experienced deliverance and healings of various kinds as The Lord touched them and ministered to them. Pastor Henry reports concerning the ministry of Michael: “”True to biblical standards of the apostle, salvations, healings and deliverances follow his ministry.
