Random extracts from written testimonies from current and previous USA tours.
What the TV station said ….
During the early U.S.A. tours, news of the miraculous happenings at the Five Fold Ministry Ireland meetings attracted media interest.
Paul was interviewed on many local radio stations and also on coast-to-coast, prime time television.
In those days we didn’t keep the same records that we do now but I have come across this testimony from the owner of a New Hampshire television studio who also interviewed Paul on radio at that time.
Testimony on the Five Fold Ministry.
I first met this group called the ‘Five Fold’ at Valle’s in Kittery Me., at a Full Gospel breakfast. Everyone, there was mightily blessed and I believe everyone there was “slain” in the Spirit, some two or three times. Almost all stayed until almost noon. We are usually out by 10.00am.
My friend and I next went to Manchester New Hampshire, at GILL STADIUM. for the Five Fold Ministry two-day revival meeting and my friend Denise was healed on the first day but had also wanted to be ‘slain’. On the second day, she was ‘slain in the Spirit’ for the first time in her life and she now speaks ‘in tongues’.
I next went to a Five Fold gathering in Hampton, New Hampshire, a couple of weeks later. I had told my grandson about this group and how the Spirit had moved at Valles so he wanted to go with us. He went and he too experienced the presence of the Holy Spirit, he prayed the sinner’s repentance prayer with them. They prayed for him and he was slain in the Spirit. (Praise the Lord).
We also went to another meeting of the ‘Five Fold’s’ at the Holiday Inn in Portsmouth N.H. and again saw the Spirit moving in a mighty way. Many there went up at the ‘altar call’ and gave their lives to the Lord and many were slain also.
They (the Five Fold) do not profess to be any denomination and do not use their names in any of these revival meetings, they just preach JESUS and him crucified and now risen for our salvation. It’s a simple message but many are saved at these gatherings.
PLEASE do not hesitate to invite them to your church or prayer meeting. You will certainly be blessed.

Rev. Scott C. Samuels. Elder.
To whom it may concern.
God moved me to be involved with several revival meetings including a major outreach to the lost at Gill Stadium in Manchester, NH. The group of people God called, to work through in this revival outreach are called the Five Fold Ministry Ireland.
Matthew 7:20 says, “By their fruit, you will recognise them”. The fruit of this group has been exciting to see.Rev. Scott C. Samuels. Elder.
At each meeting I attended, and each meeting I held, many came into a personal relationship with Jesus, (the group’s primary goal).
There were physical healings, people who received the baptism of the Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in other tongues, and prophetic words were ministered. In short, God worked through these vessels to meet the needs of the people who attended.
Just in my family alone, my mother and sister in law received major healing in their bodies. My father, when he became born-again at one of their meetings, was a witness to how the power of God works through these people.
He was held down for several minutes by two angels so that the Lord could show him that HE is real and very much a part of our lives today.
My grandfather, uncle, and aunt received Jesus as their Savior, and my sister, brother, and my brother’s wife received the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
This is just a small sample of the fruit that God has brought to New Hampshire, Maine and Massachusetts through the Five Fold Ministry.
The group has ministered in our church on several occasions. Each time they came God blessed many in the congregation through them. The last time they ministered in our church God exposed some hidden needs that some of the congregation had, through prophesy. Our congregation left that Sunday encouraged in their walk with God, and convicted to share the Gospel.
The general message God has given them is to preach salvation through Jesus. When they minister to congregations they generally preach from scripture, and what they say aligns with God’s Word. When they minister to my congregation I feel comfortable knowing that I don’t have to worry about this group speaking on things that are not found in God’s Word.
May God Bless you and your congregation through the Five Fold Ministry.
Your brother in Christ Jesus,

“ My sister Harmony’s friend was healed of Lupas! The doctors can’t believe it! No sign of Lupas anywhere in her body! Praise God! Paul also prayed we would get a car and we did!Arlene from New Hampshire
Martin S. from New York was completely healed from head to toe from chronic back pain of over 20 years. He also had carpal tunnel and tendonitis in both arms. He is now pain free after his visit to New Hampshire, during an outreach held by the Fivefold ministry. Paul the evangelist had prayed over Martin and by the stripes of Christ, he was made whole. Thank you Jesus!
Melissa from Rochester writes of her friend Darlene:
“Darlene was in a horrible car accident and hasn’t been able to work in almost 2 years. When Paul prayed over her, she was healed from this disability and is now able to return to work! Praise God! She had chronic pain and little mobility”.
Darlene herself who had travelled to the meeting from New York wrote:
“Melissa hey you are okay! My husband feels like a million bucks! He has told everyone he could about what happened to him about being slain by the Holy Spirit. He didn’t believe in that before.
I am feeling better and better everyday the pain is gone but am still having tight muscles that I can deal with! Praise the Lord he is awesome and deserves all the glory ! I haven’t taken any meds ever sense I got home.
Some thing did happen after I got home I felt like electric shocks going down my arms and my neck I know that was the Lord healing my nerve damage.
I still can’t believe I went.
I never go anywhere to meet someone I don’t know and all that. But I am truly glad and blessed that I did”.Darlene, new york

This is a letter of reference for the Five Fold Ministry at Hudson, N.H.
They have ministered in my church on two occasions. I found their ministry and calling go hand in hand with the latter day out-pouring of the Holy Spirit. People are saved, healed, set free and baptized in the Holy Spirit.
Their unique style of music and their prophetic gifting is refreshing to one’s spirit and ensures the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.

when the Irish ministry visited New England, U.S.A.

The laying on of hands
(from The Sun Times).
Elsie Burke, of Westbrook, who said she was partially deaf, claimed to have had her hearing restored. After lying on the floor for approximately two minutes, Burke was helped to her feet and handed the microphone. She then took her hearing aid out of her ear, waved it in the air, and proclaimed that she was miraculously able to hear.
“When he (Kelly) was praying over me, I couldn’t hear a word he was saying,” she said, describing her experience. “But when I woke up, I could hear the words of the music in the background that I couldn’t hear before. I can hear!”
………..One by one, Kelly laid his hands on each person in attendance and led them in a repentance prayer. Moments after placing his hands on them, most people fell backwards, appearing to have fainted.
At one point, there were up to five people lying on the floor at once. While on the ground, people’s eyes were shut, but obviously moving rapidly up and down. Leaning over them, Kelly called on Jesus to heal the person, frequently breaking into what sounded like a foreign dialect. He explained after that it is called “The gift of tongues,” a supernatural language he uses frequently at their meetings…
Another woman, who had been suffering from severe pain in one of her ribs as a result of an automobile accident, said her pain was gone. “I was a skeptic before tonight,” she said. “But now I know I’m a believer”. “It really works. I’ve been taking 1,000 milligrams of Motrin a day for the pain, now the pain is gone.”
And so the meeting went on, lasting almost three hours…
A Westbrook woman, who said she had suffered from painful arthritis in her legs, struggled to make her way up to Kelly. After falling to the ground, being prayed over and rising to her feet, she jumped up and down in joy. “It’s all gone,” she shouted, claiming to be totally cured.
Out of the 70 people interviewed, not one said they did not feel anything out of the ordinary. Every person interviewed said they felt a warm powerful, peaceful sensation, or a feeling to that effect.Reporter
Out of the 70 people interviewed, not one said they did not feel anything out of the ordinary. Every person interviewed said they felt a warm powerful, peaceful sensation, or a feeling to that effect. Some claimed to have smelled a strong aroma of roses when they came out of their trances, which Kelly said marks the presence of the Holy Spirit.
They have been staying with Jim Gerry and his family for the past month at their home in Limerick. Gerry, an automobile dealer, opens his home to them when they are in the area, and even lends them a car to use. He met them when he attended a meeting they held in New Hampshire, where Gerry said Kelly healed him of chronic arthritis that he had suffered from since he was 13 years old
Powers of Faith Healing are aimed at bringing Mainers closer to Christ
The SANFORD NEWS
Five Fold note: At all times Paul continuously points out to those whom God heals that there is only ONE healer, Our Living God, Jesus Christ. That they are NOT healed by Paul but THROUGH him by the Grace and Power of the Holy Spirit.
SANFORD: Eyesight, chest pains and an extremely high blood sugar count of a diabetic are just some of the many illnesses people said that they had been cured of since the Five Fold World Revivalist Healing Ministry, a Christian healing team from Dublin, Ireland, came to the United States just three weeks ago.
Five Fold faith healers came here to heal the blind, the lame, the sick, those with ailments, and those with terminal illnesses. But more importantly to them, they are here working to bring people to a closer relationship with Jesus Christ…………………..
……………….. people attended Thursday night’s meeting, travelling not just from around Sanford, but Hollis, Waterboro, Biddeford and Farmington, N.H., to be healed.
……As Kelly said a prayer over each one, many of those fell straight back into the arms of someone prepared for their fall. They then laid on the floor almost in a trance for several minutes before getting up……
“After Kelly said a prayer for me, he touched me and I fell back,” said Ralph King of Hollis. King, who has diabetes and had a blood sugar count of 400, an extremely dangerous level, was recently healed by Kelly, who brought his level down to 150, at a meeting the ministry held in Hollis. Since then, King has been attending all the ministry’s meetings he can make it to, he said.
Eleanor Delrymple of Waterboro also travels to many of their meetings, after she was healed by Kelly at a meeting held recently in Waterboro.
Delrymple said she had been almost blind for some time but right after Kelly prayed for her two weeks ago she could see again and has had good vision ever since. Thank God I can see” she said.
“Thank God, I can SEE again!”ELEANOR DELRYMPLE
Kelly told the audience, “I’m not doing the healing, the Lord is”.

To whom it may concern.
This letter is to verify and affirm the Spirit-led ministry of the ‘Five Fold Ministry’.
We had them minister in our church during the morning and evening services. As they began to minister in their form of music, the Holy Spirit began to move with power upon the congregation. Without manipulation or cajoling of the people, several were saved, filled with the Holy Spirit, and there was a quality ministry time to each individual who came forward.
The messages given by them by way of personal testimony and scripture-based sermon were simple, forthright, and doctrinally sound.
The most impressive thing to me however, was the total lack of exhaltion of self or of their ministry. Jesus Christ was the one lifted up by each individual and the corporate ministry as a whole.
I highly recommend the Five Fold Ministry to bring repentance and times of refreshing from the presence of the Lord.
Sincerely in Christ,
signed Pastor Robert A. Prudler.
Dear Fellow Believer,
I am writing this letter on behalf of the Five Fold Ministry, who are also known as the “Irish Missionaries”. Since you may be considering them for ministry in your church, I want to encourage you from my own personal acquaintance with them and my own experience of having invited them to minister in my church.
First, these brothers and sisters are true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. They preach Christ crucified, proclaiming Him as the only way to God, telling people that they must be ‘born again’.
They believe that the Bible is God’s Word and the ultimate authority for how we live and what we believe. Finally, they believe in the present-day operation of the Holy Spirit and His gifts being essential for the building up of the Body of Christ.
When they ministered in our church here in Amherst, we were definitely built up in the Lord. Their music and worship are quite different from most American churches but it is extremely uplifting. The message was a good exhortation on humility and serving, and afterwards, we prayed for most of the church. Several people were healed of physical problems – for instance, a woman just testified in church last Sunday that her bad knee is healed and she can jog for the first time in years without pain.
Others experienced a fresh anointing and power in the Holy Spirit, and many were encouraged by prophetic words that were spoken to them. We all sensed the presence of the Lord in a real way.
The missionaries also ministered on three colleges in the Amherst area where we have student outreaches. Many unbelievers went forward for prayer, mostly because God’s presence was undeniable. Several have made commitments to Jesus Christ, and we are following up on the rest, having gotten their names and addresses and having given them tracts and New Testaments.
I believe these brethren have heard God’s call to come to America to preach and have obeyed. They are not perfect (some of the stories I heard before I met them might make you think they were), but rather they are ordinary people like you who have devoted themselves to earnestly seeking the Lord in prayer and who preach Jesus Christ to the Lost as well as build up the church. I commend them to you as such.
