At Manmin Summer Retreat, many signs, wonders, and powerful works unfold in the name of Jesus Christ. That is why a great number of people from in and out of Korea participate with longing. In particular, many deaf people have experienced the opening of their ears.
In 2018, twenty-eight deaf people from Malaysia, Thailand, Germany, Latvia, Faroe Islands, and Denmark attended Manmin Summer Retreat held in Deogyusan Resort in Muju from August 6 to 8, and twenty-four of them experienced God’s healing work.
On the first night Rev. Dr. Soojin Lee prayed for the sick with the handkerchief on which Senior Pastor Dr. Jaerock Lee had prayed (Acts 19:11-12). Sister Tanya Del Boccio, age 47, from Germany felt hot all over her body and started to hear sound through her right ear. Sixteen-year-old Brother Kittithat Kang Kawang from Thailand came to hear and understand full sentences though he had previously only been able to hear some intermittent sounds. Sister Tang Kie Bin, 31, from Malaysia said she received the fire of the Holy Spirit during the prayer. When she returned to her room after the seminar, she heard visitors knock on her door and was then assured of her healing.
Most of deaf members have experienced constant improvement of their hearing ability over several years as they took part in the annual retreats. Sister Jyrre Dahi, 61, from Denmark and Pastor Junghoon Ji, 52, from Malaysia came to hear better after they felt some itchiness in both ears after receiving the prayer. Sister Hoe Saw Hong, 56 received the prayer in Malaysia through simultaneous sign language interpretation provided on the internet. She said her body became hot and her ears felt itchy during the prayer and came to hear better.
For Brother Lauris Rurans, 32, from Latvia, his right ear opened during the retreat last year. He looked back upon his believing life because he still couldn’t hear through his left ear. He prepared for the 2018 retreat by praying in Daniel Prayer Meeting. And when he received the prayer in this year’s retreat, he finally experienced the opening of his left ear. Brother Liew Kar Luk, 24, from Malaysia had come to hear better through his left ear and hear a little through his right ear in the previous retreat. In this year’s retreat, he came to hear better through both ears.
Additionally, Sister Beate Geisselsoeder, 49, Germany; Sister Meifria Weihe Hansen, 41, Faroe Islands; Brother Mahendran Subramaniam, 43, Faroe Islands; Brother Elvis Nebijs, 23, Latvia; Sister Inga Maurina Jurkjane, 31, Latvia; Brother Yasinthon Kang Kawang, 21, Thailand; Brother Joseph Lim Beng Pil, 35, Malaysia; Brother Liew Kar Fond, 24, Malaysia experienced the improvement of their hearing ability every year through the retreats. This year as well, they all came to hear better.
Brother Chairat Jiraphat, 52, Thailand had his left ear opened by Senior Pastor Dr. Lee’s prayer before, and this year, his right ear opened. Moreover, his eyesight improved, and he said in happiness he no longer needs glasses.
As Matthew 11:5 reads, “The blind receive sight and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them,” God unfolded such great works in Manmin Summer Retreat 2018 and led many people to salvation.
