Blessed are the poor: ‘Funky Christmas Wishes’ granted for those in need

This year’s event – renamed Funky Christmas Wishes in honor of longtime advocate for the homeless Joe Funk, who passed away in July – was the fourth such event. It provided essentials, food and gifts to 300 people in need, just for showing up Dec. 9 at 1st Baptist Church on Union Street. Attendees also got a free lunch, a $5 gift card of their choosing to Dunkins or Subway, and the offer of intercessory prayer.
All items – from brand new sweatshirts, blankets, socks and underwear, to hand-knit winter accessories, toys for kids and festive holiday hats for everyone – were donated by more than 70 local church communities and organizations.
Once inside the church, each person was given a ticket and was partnered with a volunteer “personal shopper” who stayed with them as they made their way around the tables inside the sanctuary, where they could choose one of each item they wanted or needed and stuff it into a bag. But first, attendees were invited upstairs for a church service until their number was called, for a time of prayer and singing.
Demers, founder and president of Harmony Home and lead organizer for the event, has a heart for the city’s homeless. His non-profit ministry is a place where the homeless can stop by during the day to have a meal, take a shower, wash their laundry, or pick up some clean used clothing and seek help from Demers and his staff with whatever they’re struggling with – including addiction.

“I used to work at the city’s Mental Health Center,” says Demers, who acknowledges that the services provided through Harmony Home are similar to those the city’s Homeless Service Center on Central Street used to offer. It was closed for good in 2015 due to lack of funding.
“That’s why I quit my job and started Harmony Home. At the time they closed the day center, I knew winter was coming and I knew how important those services were to the homeless,” he says. “It’s been possible through my faith in God – I had faith that it would come together. It was something that was stirring in me anyway, but when they closed the day center, I knew what I had to do.”
Demers says almost every day in the 18-months he’s been in operation, someone comes to Harmony Home seeking a way to end their addiction. He’s been able to help anyone with a valid ID and a Social Security number to get treatment, usually through a California-based recovery center.
Scott Levesque, left, and Scott Spiewak, right, made themselves available at the exit for anyone in need of prayer.
“I’m in one of the most dangerous places in the city – we’re surrounded by drug dealers and prostitutes, there have been homicides and other crime,” Demers says. “I love being where the needs are. Harmony Home is gated, and people tell me once they come through the gates, they feel safe.”
Demers’ own story is inspiring. He was orphaned as a teenager, losing both his parents to cancer within a year of one another by the time he was 18. He was the youngest of five kids, so he still had family support and his parents left them financially secure, but he gives God all the credit for guiding his path.
“I was a partying teenager, but after losing both my parents so young, it sobered me up and changed me spiritually. I wanted to be able to look back one day at a life I could be proud of, and that’s been my mission ever since,” Demers says.
The name Harmony Home is based on a biblical verse, Romans 12:16, “Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.”
Willie Johnson, pastor of the New Beginnings Church of God in Christ on Elm Street, has been involved with faith-based Christmas outreaches around the city for 16 years. He says it’s simply what he’s called to do as a Christian.

“We’re doing what the Lord says to do,” says Johnson. “To see all these people getting served, it makes me feel good. Jesus said there’s always going to be poor and needy among us. The only way we can help is by doing what he calls us to do – if someone’s hungry, feed them; it
they’re thirsty, give them something to drink; if they’re in the hospital, visit them.”
While it doesn’t necessarily absolve a city from having resources in place, Johnson says outreach to the needy should be on everyone’s agenda.
“You have to want this. You have to want to be nice and good. That’s for each of us personally to decide. Christ died on the cross for our sins so that we can be a blessing to one another,” Johnson says.

Near the exit Scott Levesque, of Imperishable Love Ministries, and Scott Spiewak who belongs to House of Prayer in Concord, gently asked people if they could pray with them before they left.
“It’s important to meet the needs of people where they are, but the most important thing is that they get to meet Jesus,” says Levesque. “There have been tons of healings and tons of miracles here.”
Many people accepted the offer of prayer, citing family members with cancer, or personal ailments. Volunteers from several area ministries, including a group of women from New Covenant Riders, part of the Christian Motorcyclists Association, quietly bowed their heads
and laid hands on people.
“I think this is a beautiful thing. I’d love to see it happen routinely in the city, not just at Christmastime,” Spiewak says.
“Not only is this a blessing for the community, but for the body of Christ to come together and work in unity, that’s a beautiful thing to see. People are laying down their lives for the Lord,” Levesque says.

Phil Haney of Merrimack volunteered his time as a personal shopper, and accompanied four people through the line.
“This is my second year. My wife knows Henry, and I got involved through her. It was a very humbling experience. For me, it’s a sort of resetting, just to feel blessed to help others in some small but positive way for Christ, and to reinforce how really blessed we are,” Haney says. “It reminds me not to take anything for granted.”

He relayed an experience that confirmed to him that he was in the right place at the right time. “I had gone out earlier this week and the Lord’s been putting on my heart that the cold weather
is coming and that there are so many people who don’t have what they need. I had picked up a coat and it was in my car. About 10 minutes after I got here, I got to talking with an older gentleman, I’d say in his ’70s, who looked like he’d had a rough life. He said he wished he had a warm coat. They didn’t have any adult-size coats here, but I remembered the coat in my car. I gave it to him,” Haney says. “I feel like it was orchestrated.”
Knee Healed then Man Skips without Cane!
Jose was limping really bad with his cane as he approached us so we flagged him down Sunday on the streets of Boston. We gave him a sandwich and a drink and then prayed for his knee. He said it was an eight out of ten. Two quick prayers in Jesus name and it went to zero, but he didn’t get excited until he started walking without a limp. Then he said “wait until my friends see me now! …I got no pain, for real!!! …thank you Jesus”
It was a delayed reaction but he was very happy to be healed and then began spinning his cane around as he skipped down the sidewalk.
We generally see several knees healed every weekend, but this guy was so happy I had to get his testimony on video!

Healed and baptized in the Holy Spirit!
At Todd White’s conference (Power & Love in Springfield MA) Laury and I volunteered to take out believers and show them how simple it is to pray for the sick and see Jesus heal.
When Marie came up to us to be trained, she was in a lot of pain and not feeling well, and she had no smiles to share with us due to her discomfort. She was the total opposite of what you see now in the video!
The second woman Jeanne, who wanted to come out with us, said she didn’t want to lay hands on people to pray because it was too uncomfortable for her to do.
Well, after speaking with both for a few minutes, we decided this was the perfect time to kill two birds with one stone and activate Jeanne and show her how easy it is to lay hands and see healing and to get Marie healed.
Jeanne began commanding healing to Marie’s body and for the pain leave in Jesus’ name. Marie’s back pain was a bit stubborn at first, but we had Jeanne keep praying and after a few minutes the back pain began to go until it was completely healed. One by one, each part of her body got healed by Jesus. By the time we went outside, her back, neck, knees, and headache were all healed and she was smiling real big!
We then hit the streets to share the Love of God and saw multiple people instantly healed, along with others who were greatly encouraged who were previously far from Jesus. In this city that many would call spiritually dark, we saw the light of Jesus piercing the darkness and bringing light everywhere we walked as Christians flooded the streets filled with power and love.
We had a fantastic afternoon of healing testimonies, and just to cap off the night, Marie was so hungry for the baptism of the Holy Spirit that we all layed hands on her and she got filled and began speaking in tongues. She was dancing and praising the Lord, filled delivered, and set free with a new outlook on what means to walk with Jesus every day! Yay God – #LivestyleChristianity
Miracles in Boston MA
We hit the streets every week, ministering to the homeless, praying for the sick, and blessing the poor and we see people touched by Jesus and healed every week. Not only are they healed, but seeds of hope are planted, and watered, as God gives increase as His goodness leads them to repentance. MANY hearts are turned back to the Father as they begin to see hope that they will indeed find their way out of the bonds of addiction and poverty.
Check out this interview with me, our friend Garth, and Brandt Gillespie formerly with the Christian Broadcast Network and now head of Media Productions at Lion of Judah church. See how it all started and where the Lord has lead our efforts these past three years!
May you be encouraged to step out in faith, be the light of the world, and see miracles, signs, and wonders in your everyday life!
Never Give Up, …..Remain in Faith!
This testimony is very similar to many we have also encountered where more than one person on our team has prayed for someone over time, who is sick, and the healing took place in stages. Like this testimony, if you need healing, remain in faith and focus on the improvements, giving thanks and not focusing on what hasn’t happened YET!
We know so many people who experience complete healing but continue to place their faith in their sickness believing it will remain or come back, rather than faith in God’s plan to heal them completely and to keep them well. We all have to rise above this temptation that wants to rely on our past circumstances rather than the Word of God. His Word is true!
Here is a perfect example of someone who remained hopeful and in faith until he saw his complete healing!
Miracles in the Boston Homeless Community!
Check out this Boston based newscast/interview that our friend Brandt Gillespie filmed, who is Audio/Video Director at Congregación León de Judá in Boston MA.
He is a media mogul with a YouTube channel called PRAYtv, doing wonderful exploits for the Kingdom of heaven and wanted to capture exactly what we were doing each week when we minister to the homeless in Boston and see miracles every week.
May this broadcast inspire many to step out in faith and watch Holy Spirit reveal the nature of Jesus, and God’s Love!
DEVELOPING FAITH TO MOVE MOUNTAINS!
FEET INSTANTLY HEALED IN BOSTON
Here’s a short and quick example of how Jesus heals through us. This man had quite a bit of pain in his feet and it instantly went away after prayer. We had a flurry of people on this same corner who got healed and rocked by Jesus within about a 30 minute period. Backs, necks, feet, knees, and a broken arm. Jesus gets all the glory! Yay God
MAN CONFUSED BY INSTANT HEALING!
James had level 7 pain in his neck when I asked if we could pray for him and he said “sure why not”. It was healed so fast He didn’t really know how to react – watch as he seems amazed and a bit confused at the same time! He was super nice to us and thanked us for doing a good work on the streets – I think he said he was a rehab counselor so he’s definitely familiar with the addicts on the streets we help and pray for each week. I say “good work” to James as well! Jesus is Lord, only believe!
4 YEARS PAIN INSTANTLY HEALED
Catch this testimony of an instant healing! When I approached him for prayer, he said he had no pain for the last couple weeks. I asked if someone on the prayer team had prayed for him back then and he said yes our friend Garth. It turns out he had all kinds of metal in his leg from an accident and was in terrible pain for four years, …that is until Garth prayed the prayer of faith, and he got instantly healed by Jesus four weeks ago! He retired his brace two days after getting healed and said he won’t be needing it any longer! Yay God!
FORMERLY PARLYZED MAN WALKS WITHOUT LEG BRACES!
We met Bruce about a year ago when he was in full length leg braces. He had been in a terrible accident with paralysis in his legs. They said he’d never walk without the braces, and to be honest, Bruce didn’t believe he’d walk without them either. But he was open to prayer so we prayed for him a couple different times and Jesus strengthened and healed his legs within a couple months! Jesus is amazing! Make him your Lord if you haven’t, he’s worth following 🙂
Todd White Testimony of Amazing Love
I posted this amazing testimony of love, in 2015- it became the single my most viewed posts on this site, and is a great reminder of what the love of Jesus looks like when we become the son’s and daughter’s that creation longs to see… His Children, created in His image, made to become the face of His love!
Check out this amazing testimony of Todd White healing. His display of love should take our walk to a whole new perspective. What an example of walking like Jesus Todd has become!!! A walking epistle and an inspiration to all believers…Love you Todd 😉
How to be Transformed by Faith!
This is an awesome teaching by Don Mohler on how to pray from your hearts desires and see real transformation. It’s a powerful teaching that changed my life dramatically a few years back. I prayed like that for over a year and saw more growth in one year than in 25 years of trying to change by my own strength. His grace is transforming!
Man Healed and Walks two days after breaking both ankles! Jesus is Lord!
Check out this amazing healing testimony! It’s from 2014 but worth reposting! Five of us went to the Topsfield fair in eastern MA on Sunday OCT 12th to pray for the sick and minister the good news.
One of the first people we encountered was a young man who was in a wheelchair wearing soft casts on his feet. We asked what had happened and he went on to explain how two days earlier he was fishing and fell off some rocks and broke both ankles. At the time we didn’t know how bad it was but later he shared these photos of the ankles.
Our friend Garth, his two boys, and my soon to be wife Laury and I were there all praying and declaring healing over this man. Garth with his tenacious nature and his boys were the ones doing most of the laying on of hands as Garth had the man stand to test the healing. He said there was definitely some immediate improvement so we blessed him and we left. About ten minutes later, the guy tracked down Laury while we visited the men’s room. He said that he could feel his casts getting looser as the swelling was decreasing and that he felt 90% healed and he seemed so happy. I asked if he could text me the pics from two days ago and if he would send me an update later when he got home that night.
Well, about 90 minutes later, I received this video below. We always expect great miracles but even we were so excited to see such a quick recovery. I honestly think it’s no harder for Jesus to heal all sicknesses this quickly. The bible testifies to many such healing events and I’m believing we’ll start seeing more and more like this as well. How awesome is our God!!!!!
*** 10/15/2014 UPDATE: I just received confirmation from this man who went back to his Dr. this morning , walked in, got re-x-rayed, and the Dr. said he no longer has broken bones – they are healed!!! He said it all looks good, take it easy for a week and you can return to work. Jesus is amazing!
Every one of us there prayed for several people during the day and we saw amazing results and miracles. One of the last people Laury and I prayed for on the way out was scheduled for a knee replacement but she received a new knee from Jesus and walked out without a limp or a cane. It’s been so amazing every week to see such miracles. I am truly humbled by God’s love.
Lowell MA – Young man walks without crutches after miracle healing!
Laury and I were visiting Lowell General Hospital when we bumped into this young man who was in pain walking with crutches. He said he couldn’t put weight on his knee or straighten it due to an injury playing soccer the day before. He described the pain as a 6-7 out of 10 (10 being the worst)
After two quick prayers, he was so shocked the he started walking without the crutches- we never asked him to, he just did it and kept saying it was a miracle and asking how that was possible! We told him it was Jesus! He left with great thanks but returned after a few minutes, again astonished asking how this was possible….all things are possible through Jesus 🙂
This young man grew up in a Buddhist family in Hong Kong, but after this miracle, ten minutes later asked us to lead him to Jesus as his Lord. It was a celebration both on earth, and in Heaven! After praying for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, he had what he called “an unusual vision/image” when his eyes were closed, of three angels surrounded by a great white light. We told him Jesus was the source of the light….the light of the world!!
Earlier that night, Shing was lost as a sinner of this world but by the grace of God, was born again and adopted into the Kingdom of heaven and became a son of God with eternal life! That is why we are told the angels rejoice when even one sinner turns to God….Yay God!!!
I Am the Light of the World
12 Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

How can we walk in greater faith?
Check out this message I gave in Springfield AM. It’s full of encouragement on waking in faith and healing the sick as presented at Lighthouse church with our friends Pastor Bob and Barbara Olmstead. Incidentally, the house sale we prayed for in this video which was on the market for some time, sold in two days after we prayed in faith! We’ve seen this happen so many times, not so we can call on God as a “genie in a bottle” ready to meet our every need, but so God may encourage us and show Himself strong. We have found that as we begin to walk closer to Him, for His purposes, we can expect His faith to manifest in our lives in ways that will make the world want to come to know Jesus not for what He can do, but to know just how great He is!. Yes, he wants to bless us but that is only secondary to coming to know Him and to sharing life with Him through our Lord Jesus Christ!
If you enjoyed this message and would like to invite Laury and I to speak at your church or group, please drop us an email so we can contact you. ( Testimonials@documentedhealings.com )
Back Pain Healed in Boston!
Laury and I prayed for the women on the right who was hurting and very miserable with chronic back pain and knee pain three weeks earlier, but look at her now! She’s still pain free and looking great! We also prayed for her friend just before taking this video and now she is also pain free. Jesus is worthy, He is amazing!
