On the last day of our Brazil trip with Global Awakening, taking a stroll on a side street in the city between the mountain and the sea (Rio de Janeiro), we saw an elderly woman limping, visibly in pain. At first, we ministered healing to the visible pain, and then the Holy Spirit moved us on to her heart. Hugging her, Peggy spoke love, affirming her value, letting her know God heard her cries in the midnight hours, how He loved her. We gave her a God- size dose of love, attention, compassion, and care. This woman who was unnoticeable, almost blending into the streets, had a divine appointment with the God who loves and created her.
She hugged, and wept in Peggy’s arms, often raising her arms to
receive God’s love and affirmation. We spoke over and over again, God never
left you, he hears your cries and he sent us to hold you and let you know you
matter to God.
She walked away healed on the inside and with a less noticeable
limp. Praise God!!
You can walk with a limp, but it’s even more difficult to walk with a hurting heart. -Peggy Castorri-Hutzel
the last day of our mission trip to Brazil, I randomly opened my Bible to the following
passage in Luke 10. I looked down on the page and
this is what I read – “When the seventy
missionaries returned to Jesus, they were ecstatic with joy, telling him,
“Lord, even the demons obeyed us when we commanded them in your name!” Jesus
replied, “While you were ministering, I watched Satan topple until he fell
suddenly from heaven like lightning to the ground. Now you understand that I
have imparted to you all my authority to trample over his kingdom. You will
trample upon every demon before you and overcome every power Satan possesses.
Absolutely nothing will be able to harm you as you walk in this authority.
However, your real source of joy isn’t merely that these spirits submit to your
authority, but that your names are written in the journals of heaven and that
you belong to God’s kingdom. This is the true source of your authority.” Then
Jesus, overflowing with the Holy Spirit’s anointing of joy, exclaimed, “Father,
thank you for you are Lord Supreme over heaven and earth! You have hidden the
great revelation of this authority from those who are proud, those wise in
their own eyes, and you have shared it with these who humbled themselves. Yes,
Father. This is what pleases your heart and the very way you’ve chosen to
extend your kingdom: to give to those who become like trusting children” (Luke
I’ve never encountered before a people so hungry for the Word of God. Truly, they came like trusting children (Luke 10:21) and for it, they received. There’s a revival going on in Brazil that is transforming the nation.
Wow! There could have been no other passage in the Bible that could have more accurately summed up our mission trip this week and the great number of salvations, and physical and emotional healings, further substantiating what Jesus said: “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.” (John 14:12-14).
of 39 people, representing 5 different countries (US, UK, Canada, Australia and
Switzerland) met together the morning of Tuesday, March 19th at the airport in
Rio to bus transfer to our accomodations in Niteroi. From there we were bussed
to various locations during the week to evangelize and bring healing and
revival to hundreds of Brazilian’s.
On the first day, we immediately hit the ground running as we received impartation that afternoon by Blaine Cook and Kim Maas, and were already doing ministry all together that evening at a church service. For the rest of the week, 4 ministry teams with 9-10 people each were allocated to rotate doing ministry among 5 different churches. As I did not speak Portuguese, except for a handful of phrases, I was provided with a translator. I was grateful.
God showed up in power throughout the week, bringing the passion of Jesus and revival to the Brazilians through teaching, impartation, and ministry, spreading the good news of God’s love, mercy, grace and compassion. Many were emotionally healed, physically healed, delivered, and saved. We saw 13 blind eyes opened, 7 deaf ears opened, 13 tumors and cysts disappear, 4 metal miracles and 1 lame person walk. These were just some of the 339 physical healings, 28 sovereign healings, and 315 emotional deliverances that we saw. Hallelujah!!! Thank you Jesus!!!
If you would like further details and testimonies, please click on the following links and we will periodically be posting more under the menu item “Brazil Mission Trip 2019.”
If you sowed into our ministry via prayers and/or finances, you have reaped ALL the blessings along with us. As is usual, we often think we are going to bless, but God in His kingdom does the reverse and HE blesses us!!
“I tell you this timeless truth: The person who follows me in faith, believing in me, will do the same mighty miracles that I do—even greater miracles than these because I go to be with my Father!” (John 14:12, TPT)

Global Awakening Brazil Mission Trip, March 2019 …..
I prayed for a young boy and his mother. The boy, who was around 10-years old, complained of rapidly diminishing eyesight. I covered the boy’s eyes with my hands and prayed, but there was no change. I prayed again, and again there was no progress, and so, I called my wife, Peggy, over to discern why the boy was not responding to prayer. We work well together as a team.
When interviewing the mother, she asked if anyone else in the family had issues with their eyes, and the answer was yes. It was generational, and so, we led them in prayer to fall out of agreement with any generational curses. Further questioning revealed that the mother had a tumor behind her ear 3-years prior that affected her eyesight and hormones for which she received treatment and was healed. This led to her concluding that perhaps her son’s eye issue and complaining of hearing loss may also be connected.
The boy was at least 50% deaf in his left ear. So, I placed my hands on both ears and began praying for restored hearing. After a brief time, I stopped and softly spoke to his left ear and snapped my fingers. Still, he did not respond. I continued to pray and commanded his hearing to return. This time there was some improvement, so I continued to pray. Then, he smiled. He said that he could hear clearly, that both ears were the same. His hearing was 100% in both ears!
When I snapped my fingers by John’s left ear and asked him something, there was no response.
There was still the issue with John’s eyesight. While I was praying for the boy’s hearing, Peggy pulled the mother aside to talk to her and discovered that her pastor had told her a year ago that she had healing abilities. Sensing that the Holy Spirit wanted to build her faith with the prophetic word given, we agreed and immediately told her to lay hands on her son’s eyes. She started shaking, crying, saying “I don’t know how or what to do”. We said, “just let God speak through your heart”.
We then watched God through this mom, pour out His love and healing power to her son.
Although we were ushered from the hall to catch our bus short of a final interview, when we looked back, we saw the boy leaving with his family. John was no longer wearing his glasses.
BRAZIL MISSION TRIP, GLOBAL AWAKENING MARCH 2019 TRIP REPORT
A young man in his early 20’s came for prayer because he had a cyst growing behind his left ear. He had surgery to remove it a couple of years earlier, but it came back. I looked at it and it was red and swollen about 5mm and it was probably just over an inch in length. My translator was a believer, so I told her she was qualified to pray with me so we both put our hands by his ear, careful not to touch the cyst because it was so painful to touch. We welcomed the Holy Spirit to come and then I cast out the cyst and told it to leave in Jesus’ name. We looked and it looked about 25% smaller. We thanked Jesus for what He was doing, and we prayed again. It went down more to about 50%. He felt it and said it was definitely smaller and not as sore. We prayed a third time, and nothing happened. I told him about how there can be things that interfere with healing such as unforgiveness and I asked if there was anybody he needed to forgive. He said he needed to forgive his father. So, he prayed to forgive his father for the things he did and how it made him feel. I asked if there was anybody else he needed to forgive and he said himself. So, he forgave himself. This time I told my translator not to touch the cyst. I explained that I had prayed for something like this before and it disappeared, but I didn’t see it because I wasn’t looking at it and I didn’t want to miss it again. So, we prayed, and we watched this thing get smaller and smaller until the swelling was gone, and the redness was gone. It probably only took about 15 seconds. My translator was ecstatic! I was excited to have SEEN my first miracle (visibly as it shrunk) and the young man wept and wept. I asked if I could record his testimony on my phone and he agreed to it. On the video, the translator and the young man looked like they could have been a couple as it was such an intimate time with the Lord, and they had just met the 15-20 minutes prior. When he could finally speak, he said he could feel God holding his hand. Instead of talking about the physical healing, the presence of God’s love was what moved him. I asked him on the video how much pain was left, and he said, “Gone”. I asked what size his cyst was now, “Gone”. And he fell over weeping leaning on the wall. The translator fell to her knees in worship, arms fully extended to heaven. I fell over laughing at the goodness of God and the translator did as well. We hugged and we praised God. It was very special. -Lindsay Crosby Denham
There is substantial biblical evidence
to show that healing ministry and miraculous spiritual gifts are for today. So,
the more we understand the Bible, the more we will see the manifestation of the
promises of God available to us. God wants us to realize that the potential for
releasing the supernatural is in and through The Cross. The cross is the
fountainhead from which all blessings flow, including miracles, healings, and
the power of the kingdom.
“Everything that belongs to the Father belongs to me” (John 16:14, TPT). “Jesus said that the Father had given him everything as an inheritance, and it is the Holy Spirit who transfers everything to us through His declarations. “It is said that when a kernel of corn is planted, every kernel that grows on the resulting ear of corn has the exact same DNA as the original kernel in the ground. Jesus became the ultimate seed that was planted in death, and we were born again of the same Spirit that raised Him from the dead. Every born-again believer has the DNA of Christ!” (Bill Johnson and Randy Clark, The Essential Guide to Healing, Equipping All Christians to Pray for the Sick, p. 147).
“I tell you this timeless truth: The person who follows me in faith, believing in me, will do the same mighty miracles that I do—even greater miracles than these because I go to be with my Father! 13 For I will do whatever you ask me to do when you ask me in my name. And that is how the Son will show what the Father is really like and bring glory to him. 14 Ask me anything in my name, and I will do it for you!” (John 14:12-14, TPT)
Simple trust in God,
plus obedience, opens the door to His miraculous provisions for you.
Here are a couple of accounts where I personally witnessed God’s healing miracles during my Brazil 2019 mission trip.
came forward for prayer with severe pain in her left shoulder. The pain
traveled her entire arm to her hand. The level of pain on a scale of 1 to 10
was a 10. Interestingly, God brought me someone who was experiencing exactly
the same pain that I was healed for at Voice of the Apostles in October 2017.
And so, I began praying over her repeatedly, “pain go now” and “thank you
Jesus”. After a short while I asked her if she was feeling anything. No, she
replied, the pain was still a 10.
knew from experience that if the pain had not decreased, there was very likely
a deeper reason for her not being healed immediately. So, I asked her if there
were any known curses on her, and/or unforgiveness. To both she said yes.
Bible is very clear that harboring unforgiveness in our hearts is sin. And, if
we are not actively seeking to forgive those who have hurt us, it will break
our fellowship with God. We won’t experience everything God has to offer us,
and that includes God’s healing in our own bodies. I prayed the curse off her
first and then asked her to forgive those who had hurt her. I prayed again and asked her after a short
while if the pain had left. Her eyes were wet with tears. The pain was
completely gone! Glory received both
emotional and physical healing.
Renato was experiencing pain in his lower back and legs and was unable to bend at the waist without much pain. His level of pain was pretty bad. I began praying for him, and after a short while, I asked him again what he was feeling. His pain had slightly diminished. I continued praying until it was almost gone, and then gone! I asked Renato if he could do anything now that he couldn’t do before. He then proceeded to bend at the waist and touch his toes. He could also turn side to side at the waist. The pain was completely GONE! Thank you, Jesus! Glory to God!
This March, Peggy and I will have an amazing opportunity to join Global Awakening on a mission trip to Brazil. The timing is now, and the needs are massive.
The people are hungry and thirsty for God’s touch. Much suffering, confusion, and bitterness exists in Brazil and especially Rio de Janeiro because of the government’s mishandling of the 2016 Olympics. Corruption is at its height.
March 18 to March 26, we will join others from around the globe to be ambassadors of Christ, to do as Jesus commissioned us to do. We will be there to pray, to bring physical and emotional healing and to set captives free.
