On the first day Miracle Café® Bangor opened, despite not yet having recruited a chef and deciding to do a ‘soft launch’ and open gently, the café was busy all day. As the doors opened, a customer arrived, and after ordering a coffee and some food, also asked for ‘personal prophecy’ from the menu. He was so encouraged by what was spoken to him, that he prayed a prayer to receive Jesus.
The next customer said she was a witch and after enjoying some food, she asked for and received some healing in her body. She then posted about her visit on her social media business and told people to check out the new Miracle Café®. As a result, many came in and received a taste of heaven for themselves.
Then two customers from Switzerland asked for a dream interpretation and freedom from evil spirits. They were both visibly moved as Todd interpreted the dream in German for one, and the other got free and prayed to receive Jesus into his life. A local workman then came in, his broken ankle was healed and he asked Jesus into his life too.
Students arrived and while enjoying the good food and modern vibe, asked for freedom and prophetic words, and received a touch from God; some asking to receive Jesus too.
Ruth was cooking, Terry washing up, Todd on drinks and Aliss front of house waiting tables and offering ministry with help from Todd. Also on the first day, a head chef from a fine dining restaurant arrived for coffee with a friend. He was so taken with the ambience and the hospitality, after receiving physical healing, he told his friend: ‘I want to work with these people!’ A few days later, he quit his job and is now Chef at Miracle Café® Bangor!
