In an open-air meeting at a small village, a number of people were healed as they simply listened to the Gospel being preached! Nobody laid hands on them or prayed for them in any way. Jesus' work on the cross, His death, burial, and resurrection were proclaimed, and God's miracle power came tangibly through the message.   One woman had an excruciating stomach condition. It was so painful that she often was unable to walk at all, let alone go on a bumpy bus ride. She lived in another village, and didn't think she could make it to the outdoor meeting. Her friends wouldn't hear it, encouraging her to push through the pain and let them help her get there. They had faith that a miracle awaited her. She agreed, and with their help she came and joined the crowd awaiting a touch from the Healer. As the hot sun beat down, she sat, simply listening to the Gospel. When she heard the Good News of what He'd done, God came and touched her body, completely delivering her of pain and sickness! Nobody but the Holy Spirit had laid hands on her. She joyfully stood, announcing to the crowd what Jesus had just done as tears filled her eyes. As the day progressed, many others received divine healing from the Lord and some received His salvation for the first time!  

Indigenous, first-generation Jesus followers lay hands on the sick, seeing the healing power of God move through them.

I am not ashamed of the Gospel, for it is the [miraculous] power of God, unto [salvation, healing, deliverance, and rescue] for all who believe.
— Romans 1:16 [Greek expanded]
