BE a part of a modern day miracle.
The Leongatha Healing Rooms will host a train-
ing day at the Christian Revival Church in Hughes
Street, Leongatha, on November 5.
The Healing Rooms is a quiet and soothing place
for people to go and pray for health, and the team is
looking for more members to help those in need.
This session will qualify people to turn to prayer
and help heal those who are sick or in pain.
The cost of the training day is $65 for new-

All team members must be certified, and this
training day will help people understand the rules
and regulations, and confidentiality clauses, so more
people can become actively involved.
“What people need to be wary of is that we are
not primarily there to counsel people. We seek God
and believe for healing, and it has worked so far. We
have seen miracles performed,” team member Terry
Mr Aeschlimann said the exciting part of the
training day is the afternoon, when participants will
come together and pray.
“It gives people confidence when they try it and
see miracles happen. It’s worth going just for that
experience. It’s an opportunity to be involved in
modern day miracles. It’s a bit of positivity in this
negative world,” he said.
Rob Newton of Healing Rooms Australia will
also be preaching at the Healing Rooms on Sunday,
He will be available to speak to interested parties
about the healing ministry between 1pm and 3pm.

club for lending us the space and
we are pleased with the amount
of interest shown by the commu-
nity,” she said.
“The space was virtually full
at the beginning of the day. The
plants were selling fast.”
