Subodh Jena Kumar hosted The Elijah Challenge in Orissa twice
"We praise God for the fruitful Feeding Event in Dhenkana. Two hundred thirty people gathered for the event. The region is quite beautiful with 300 homes. They are all from the Hindu Hadi group. We were really very glad to minister to such a people group with the Lord opening the door.
The gospel arrived at this unreached village for the first time. Over one hundred and fifty people accepted Christ as their Savior. The Lord healed many people of diseases and delivered many from demon-possession. There were also many barren women who came to the meeting. This was the first time we saw a quite number of women come to the meeting with such an issue. We ministered to them and hope to hear good news in the days ahead.
All the villagers could not attend the event but they heard the news that many sick people were healed and demon-possessed people set free. And so many people brought the sick and requested us to minister them where we stayed after the program ended. As soon as the testimony time was over, there was a heavy rain and people could not take their lunch under the tent.
Mrs. Namita had suffered from stomach pain for fourteen years. She had gone to so many doctors and spent many rupees, but was not healed. Every night she felt the right side of her stomach burning and she was not able to sleep well. It was a wonderful miracle that took place in her body. The pain left completely. Praise God!
Barnali had suffered from demon attacks for two years, and her entire body was in pain. She couldn’t eat or sleep. When she listened to music the demon would come out, and she would lose consciousness. I saw the demonic presence in her movements, and I commanded the demon in Jesus' name to leave her. Immediately she screamed and the demon left her.
Mama Sarita was deaf. A year earlier she had cerebral malaria and she lost her hearing. The Lord touched her and restored her hearing. She is seen testifying that now she is able to hear.
Shiva had very bad knee pain, and was not able to stand or bend his knee. The Lord healed him right there and he is shown testifying with much gladness.
Raju Naik was suffering from piles (hemorrhoids) for many years. He had come with very much pain and was not able to sit. He would sit for a few minutes and would get up. After ministering to him he felt more comfortable than before. Again I called him and ministered to him. God touched him, and he is shown testifying that he does not feel the pain anymore, and believes he is healed---Jesus touched him. Praise God that while everyone was having the lunch he also sat down and ate.
Another testimony of healing
While I was ministering to the infirm, people were crying and receiving their healing. At that time a few people were standing outside the tent watching. One woman believed that miracles were taking place. After our program she brought her 6-year-old boy who was deaf and mute. I ministered him. Praise the Lord for the first time the boy could hear and was able say "maa." Praise God for His mighty work in Denkanal.
Thank you so much for your assistance which is helping us to bring the gospel to needy unreached villages."
