Reports from Elijah Challenge Africa Coordinator Emmanuel Rhema

“The Lord laid on my heart so strongly to reach these 40 villages with the Elijah Challenge Training. He Himself provided the funds for me to embark on the journey without any invitation or handbills. I went to the first village, mobilizing the churches and the Training started. People came in numbers for the three days. The result was dramatic.

From there I went to other villages which include Okpara, Orogun, Oghara, Mosogar, Jesse, Ogwangbe, Obotebe, Burutu, Orhuworhun, Alaja and others in Delta State and also Uromi, Ubiaja, Ekpoma, Okpella, Annegbette, Effeku, Sabon-gida Ora, Naifo, Oghanebode, and other villages in Edo State.

The attendance was encouraging. We recorded about 3000 people trained in all the Training events. The trained believers were astonished as they saw the Lord using them to heal the sick. Some of the infirmities healed instantly during the Training include partial blindness, multiple total deafness, stroke, asthma, spinal cord injury, migraine headache, kidney problem, etc,

Every day of the meetings the number of the participants increased. I was told yesterday that the believers have made healing the sick their “hobby” as they go about healing anyone who comes across them who is sick. I believe we shall enter other village with the Training very soon.

Other Elijah Challenge Coordinators trained by you are doing well in their ministries. The Lord has increased them numerically as they put what they learned in the Elijah Challenge Training to work.”
