“We had another successful Elijah Challenge Feeding Event at Village “Devbhan“ in Uttar Pradesh. This village is 132 years old with about ten thousand Hindu people in population.

On 19th April 2010 we conducted our Feeding Event in this village with approximately 370 people in attendance. Close to 340 people received Christ as their Lord and Savior. Our newly-appointed Elijah Challenge co-worker Pastor Abhishek took care of the follow-up ministry with the new believers. In this way a new church being planted at village Devbhan in Uttar Pradesh.


The gospel is preached to the Hindus


Trained believers minister to the sick in Christ’s name


The sick testify of being healed by the Lord

People came up to the stage to testify that the Lord has healed them

Mr. Jeevan, who had been suffering from pain in his leg for two weeks, was totally healed as an Elijah Challenge-trained believer ministered to him

Mrs. Purnima had been suffering from pain in her arm but it disappeared in the name of JESUS at the Feeding Event

Since giving birth to her baby, Mrs. Salini was not able to get up properly and while walking suffered from back pain. At the Elijah Challenge Feeding Event, the pain was rebuked in the name of Jesus. Afterwards she could get up and walk with NO pain. Praise the Lord!


The villagers are fed

Luke 10:9 “Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God is near you.’”
