MIKEY ARTHURS’ STORY

Antrim, Northern Ireland. (Nicaragua)

“Nicaragua was an unreal experience for me, I loved every minute of it-met some amazing people and still now we share our faith with each other 4000 miles away through Skype.  I cannot pick one moment of the trip as my favourite and could spend all day sharing about it. For me I enjoyed speaking in churches, for those who know me it’s not really my calling, but I spoke to many people all over Nicaragua, from the poorest to the richest, the eldest to the youngest. We also had the opportunity to minister every place we went and in doing so saw many healings; not just physical but emotional too. The food distribution was another highlight; one day we headed up into the mountains and fed the poorest people I’ve ever seen in my life. Their gratitude reflected how in reaching out we were sharing God’s love. My personal highlight was when we had the chance to pray for a young girl who was maybe no more than 11 years old and she had a twisted leg. So we began to pray for her. It was a calm and quiet day outside and I prayed aloud: “God blow the roof of this house with your healing power”, then a strong gust of wind blew in the hut! Keeping in mind there was no wind before or after that. The girl was not instantly healed, however there was something very significant in that moment and God was speaking to all of us.  Since returning from Nicaragua I’ve been so much more thankful for what God has given to me for family, friends, church, food, weather etc.

My advice if you are planning on going on a missions team-forget about the money-if God wants you there, you’ll be there. That’s what he did for me. Faith is believing, not seeing.”
