Clapping and Crying and Praising God

Several times each work day in Cameroon, there were responses that reminded me of the lame man in Acts 3:

Peter said,  “I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you.  In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!” And he took him by the right hand and raised him up, and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong. And  leaping up he stood and began to walk, and entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God. 

God did not grant us the gift of healing for anyone. But he allowed us to raise up almost 200 people into wheelchairs. And there was rejoicing among them and the ones who love them. We saw people clapping and crying and waving and dancing and praising God.
