Andrew and the Gospel Truth Seminar team traveled to Orlando, Florida in April. While visiting the Sunshine state, Andrew ministered a series of teachings called Changing the Way We Think. As he introduced the series, which began in Ephesians 4, he said enthusiastically, "I'm probably going to give you everything I know this weekend."

Andrew opened with the gifts of the five-fold ministry found in Ephesians 4:11, pointing out that ministers are given the gifts for the purpose of perfecting or equipping the body of Christ to do the works of the ministry (Ephesians 4:12). He also pointed out that the body has delegated its duties to the full-time ministers. "It is not efficient for all of the shepherds [ministers] to produce all of the sheep. Shepherds should tend sheep and sheep should beget sheep," said Andrew. He went on to say that every church member ought to be producing sheep and be able to cast out devils and operate in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. These opening comments laid the ground work for the rest of the Andrew at the Saturday morning session in Florida.

weekend by charging the body with the responsibility the Word assigns to each believer to minister.

Operating in the five-fold office of teacher, Andrew ministered the Word and prepared the people's hearts to receive from the prayer ministry team. Andrew's staff was joined by 30 prayer ministers; 20 were AWM partners and the rest were students from Charis Bible College's Jacksonville and Orlando campuses. The team ministered with boldness and expectancy and the majority of those who came forward for prayer received instantaneous manifestations of healing.

Included among those released from the oppression of the enemy was a man suffering from the effects of a stroke he had a decade earlier. According to a prayer minister, his symptoms included numbness and an inability to move the left side of his body. After receiving prayer, all feeling returned to his body and he was able to smile fully and rotate his left arm—things he hadn't been able to do prior to the meeting.Andrew prays with those who answered the altar call Friday night. 244 people received the batism of the Holy Spirit during the conference.

The prayer team reported that several people suffering from the ravaging symptoms associated with Multiple Sclerosis also received healing. One woman with MS had approached the prayer team in a wheelchair; after prayer her pain left and strength returned to her body. She got up out of her wheelchair and walked unaided, all around the auditorium and refused to sit back down—she left the meeting pushing her wheelchair!

In addition to ministering from the platform at the GTS, Andrew also had the opportunity to be interviewed by a local television program called The Good Life. Andrew's two-part interview is available in our April 26 post.

I am an 80 year old widow who is just learning these wonderful things concerning the revelation or enlightenment of my understanding of the authority God has given his children. I think it is so fantastic. I am overwhelmed. But I am no longer able to receive your website on my computer. I want very much to be able to click on any number of Andrew's teachings. I no long have TV. The enternet is important to me.
These teachings have changed my life. I thank you for allowing God to work such wonders in your life. God continue to bless you in this way and also good health for you, Jamie and all those who work with you.
