Members of BOLD Ministries spent all of February 2012 experiencing miracles and healings in Africa, according to Sandra Shaw, evangelist for the organization based in Sutherland Springs.

Members visited Liberia, held a teaching conference, and hosted a three-night crusade, where thousands were saved and many experienced healings.

On the first night of BOLD’s first crusade in Liberia, Shaw and the group experienced their first miracle.

Jimmy, 21, who was born totally deaf and mute, was healed that day, Shaw said. What was awesome, she added, was the crowd’s reaction when he spoke in perfect English, since many had known him from birth. There was much celebrating, Shaw said.

Crowds of up to 5,000 people were at the crusade in Uganda. Many people walked miles from their villages to hear the Gospel preached, according to Shaw.

Shaw said a primary aim of the visit to Uganda was to decrease the people’s practice of witchcraft, a common custom. Families in Africa grasp for the Gospel or turn to the local witch doctor, she said, because they don’t have access to medical attention like in the United States. Many were delivered, Shaw added.

Evangelism was not only limited to the flocks. Shaw was invited to preach on local and national TV. This provided an opportunity to help the nation heal in the wake of civil war.

Shaw also was able to plead with the Ugandan Parliament for an end to child sacrifice in that country, encouraging them to pass legislation regarding the practice.

BOLD Ministries is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Visit for information.
