It was an experience of a lifetime. The Lord moved significantly with many signs and wonders in South Africa. I was treated with utmost respect and loving care throughout the entire stay. I am excited to report that plans are already being made for future seminars, with an emphasis on Training.
A great hunger for the manifest PRESENCE of the Risen Lord Jesus Christ was evident at every meeting. Because of this great expectation and faith, many people received their healing - emotional, physical, relational, and financial. They described their experiences as “life changing” and “beyond my expectations”.
Many different churches were represented, from “Conservative/Traditional” to very free, expressive, Charismatic congregations. Many expressed their exuberance in response to the Lord’s touch by weeping, dancing, laughing, and shouting for joy. Spiritual encounters like seeing Angels, and "receiving a scroll in the mouth to eat" brought excitement. Many skeptical, non-believers were also touched by the Presence of the Holy Spirit.
On the personal side, I found South Africa to be one of the most colorful, vibrant, and multicultural “blend” of very warm and friendly people. The beauty of God’s creation in the land is everywhere: the plains, seashores, mountains, vegetation, flowers - along with beautiful animals there are readily seen in the wilderness reserves in their natural habitat.
All my faculties were “awakened” by my new experiences of sight, sound, smell, taste and touch – indescribable by words. I consider these as “special ‘treats” from the Lord that I shall never forget.
There are just too many testimonies to share in this report – Praise the Lord! I will share a few condensed testimonies below:
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): Many people who were traumatized with memories of rape, molestation, satanic ritual abuse, catastrophic accidents, the violent death of loved ones, witnessing of gruesome murders, etc. came to the front. Some of them had been suffering from ongoing flashbacks and nightmares.
All of them were set free from fear and anxiety, and they experienced peace, love and a feeling of safety from the Lord. Many of them also experienced physical healings – immediately or later.
Addictions: Many individuals with addictions – drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, pornography, nail biting, binge eating, etc, were set free. A 12-year old boy, who could not stop sucking his thumb, was set free.
Deaf ears opened: An individual who was diagnosed 95% deaf in both ears was healed. Another person who was plagued by a constant “whoosh- whoosh” sound in both ears was totally set free. Prior to the Lord’s touch, no doctor or medication had helped.
Neck and back pain, and joint problems (shoulders, hips, knees, fingers) were healed. These included re-creative miracles of the neck, back, and joints. We are asking people to have X-ray pictures taken – for the glory of God.
A man with terrible liver spots all over his body (very embarrassing) was healed. The spots started to fade gradually after the seminar; and are now all GONE!
Several people with severe food allergies and/or environmental conditions were healed.
Many HIV children were healed, but medical reports are not available – because doctors are not supposed to mention HIV, even on death certificates.
The condition of many children, and some adults, with ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, and autism improved, after the conclusion of specific prayers for these conditions. Follow-up testimonies are not fully in yet.
A person with schizophrenia reported no more hearing of voices or confused thoughts.
While I was ministering “Spirit, Soul & Body Alignment”, three individuals reported seeing Angels at their feet, pulling their ankles, and they almost fell out of their chairs.
One person saw many angels all around the auditorium.
A woman with scoliosis received a “normal” curvature of the spine from the Lord, and now has no pain. She has grown 2 cm since the Lord healed her. Her husband, a doctor, promised to write to us about his observation (as a doctor) of his wife’s healing.
The Potter’s Wheel session produced many interesting results, including emotional healing, correction of genetic disorders, and physical healing. Only a few are listed here.
A woman had been off work for a month because of polyps on her voice box and could not speak at all for 10 days. While spinning during the “Potter’s Wheel” session, she discovered her voice was back, and it was clear, and she felt 100% better.
A person with diabetes reported normal blood sugar indications: no insulin needed. I told her to monitor the level of her blood sugar every day.
Several people diagnosed with bipolar disorder were reportedly healed. One man had the condition for 26 years.
Now, I would like to ask my "Awesome Threesome" - the wonderful ladies who helped make this trip possible - to share their comments and brief testimonies -in the order of their ministry times with me:
Isabeau - Stilbaai, South Africa; and Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, CanadaMy trip with Aiko was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and I feel so privileged to have been part of it all. It was so good to show her my land, my people, my culture. Of course, when you show someone your country, you see it with new eyes yourself.
My plan was simply to make her trip as trouble-free and comfortable as possible, and I think between Maureen, Mary and I, we sort of achieved that. There were many incidents of how the Lord intervened, but I will share them at a more personal occasion.
I was so aware of the desperate NEEDS of people to take control of their lives and the intense gratitude they expressed for Aiko's ministry, teaching them how to pray and expect results through her Spirit, Soul and Body seminars. No one left the same from the time they arrived, having received a special touch from the Lord through Dr. Aiko.
It is so true, as Jesus said, that the fields are white, ready for harvest and the great need for workers. Please pray that those who attended, feeling a call on their lives, to follow up on the teachings and attend further lessons to apply what they learned in ministering to others.
Mary - White River, South Africa
Having seen Dr. Aiko in June 2006 on a TV interview I was so excited at the revelation the Lord had given her on the brain, and the body, soul and spirit connection. I longed to attend one of her seminars.
Little did I know how the Lord would use that short TV clip to actually bring her to South Africa and bless our people with many seminars she held in various parts of the country.
No words can describe the response to Aiko’s teachings as people are all saying THIS is what they’ve been waiting for all their lives. The freedom of deliverance has left many joyous hearts and empowered Christians in her wake. It has so revolutionized our thinking and understanding of just who we are IN Christ.
I have already seen wonderful results from prayer when I prayed for two young ladies (separately) from different towns, who had both planned to commit suicide. But God had a far better plan. After listening to their respective stories, I was able to lead them both to the Lord, and they are now attending church and being cared for within those churches. God is so good and all He needs is our availability. He’ll then make us able. Praise the Lord!
I have now started a “training group” where we are going though Dr. Aiko’s Overcomers' Manuals (Lessons 1 to 12) and the response is almost electric. Everyone is like a sponge and just wishing they could have classes daily! The first meeting had a turnout of 16 people which is a lovely beginning. We expect people to apply “Tools of the Spirit” from these lessons and we can then “go forth and multiply . . . ”
Maureen - Cape Town, South Africa
People often ask me “What is your connection with Dr Aiko?” My story is this: a friend, Mary, gave a video to me. The clip about Dr. Aiko was no more than a few minutes; which had been recorded from God Channel.
I watched it in amazement. My heart started thumping and my spirit leapt. I could not believe what I was hearing and seeing. For over 25 years, I have been giving motivational talks, seminars and workshops, all based on the truths from the Word and have always known that our thoughts/emotions influence everything from our health, relationships, finances, even to the rate we will age. I also taught on the power of the spoken word.
Now I was watching an amazing looking woman, exuberating much more energy than most 30-year olds. I could hardly believe that she was almost 80 years old. She was speaking with such authority and knowledge of the Word.
I switched off the video and sat back in the armchair. My heart still racing, I knew I had had a spiritual experience that had touched the very core of my soul. I started to pray, “Lord, what is going on with me, why do I feel this way?” The reply came so swift and was almost audible: "You will sit at her feet." Nothing more, that was all. My spirit soared. If I were to sit at her feet, then I must learn everything about her. For years, I have been praying for a human mentor, someone I could respect and emulate; someone who could take me deeper into the truths of the Word and help me draw even closer to the Lord Jesus. I instinctively knew that this remarkable woman was the key mentor I had longed for.
I literally ran to the computer. I downloaded everything on her website. I then started to place a large order for her products. To my dismay I could not get my payment through. I tried again then again.
I am not a person who gives up easily so I decided to phone Canada. It was an answering machine. Eventually I did get through to a sweet woman who asked where I was from, and I told her Cape Town, South Africa. "That's interesting," she remarked, "I've just had a woman called Isabeau in the office now and she is going to Cape Town in a couple of weeks. I will give you her email address."
Isabeau and I started to communicate via the web. She did come to Cape Town, we met up in a coffee shop, and there started a very special friendship. It also turned out that she and I have exactly the same vision: “A Prayer Mountain” but that is another story. Our Heavenly Father, who knew our hearts’ desire, orchestrated everything!
When I started to listen to Dr. Aiko’s CDs, watch the DVDs and study the Manuals, I realized how right I had been about this amazing woman. I knew that I knew, that I knew, I had to bring her to South Africa.
But the problem was that NO One had heard of Dr. Aiko Hormann in South Africa. One cannot expect churches to open their doors without knowing anything about her ministry. Every day, I prayed that doors would open that no one could shut. Finally two names came up in prayer: Shofar and Lighthouse.
I managed to get appointments with the Pastors of Shofar and Lighthouse. The Lord orchestrated open doors miraculously. Without knowing Dr. Aiko (or me), they graciously opened their hearts and their churches. Their staff members and congregations also received us marvelously.
I thank God for what followed. Aiko stayed in our home for her duration in Cape Town. I could write a book on my personal experiences; maybe one day I will. The experience on the top of Table Mountain when Aiko and I were transported with an awesome vision was so intense that I can still feel it.
The Saturday morning seminar at Shofar was the first I witnessed how God used Dr. Aiko. To see so many people healed of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) was a prelude to the many thousands of healing miracles that were to follow. I know how difficult PTSD is to heal ‘in the natural’. I realized then just how powerful this ministry was and how much I had to learn.
The greatest miracle of all to me is that I now have more ZEAL in my own prayer life, a relationship with God I could have only dreamed about, and an excitement in my spirit that "this is only the beginning."
Now, I shall give my own seminars with this new found knowledge, a deeper understanding of the Word, and with much more confidence and power.
I owe it all to Almighty God working through this unique woman, my very special friend and mentor whom I love dearly, Dr. Aiko Hormann.
