“Greetings to you in the matchless name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you so much for your prayer and support for the ministry . We had a very successful Feeding Event at Khajuripanga on February 25, 2013.
Khajuripada is a remote village where the poor tribal people live by cultivating the soil. I saw that most of the tribal people were addicted to alcohol. As our Feeding Event was going on I could hear the noise of a drunkard from outside.
The Lord very graciously touched these needy people and healed them from various diseases. Many alcoholics were touched by the Lord. Over three hundred tribal people accepted the Lord for the first time in their life.
1 A man named Sasikant had been suffering from pain in his stomach and his eyes for seven years. From time to time the pain would start up and it was unbearable. Six months back he had gone to the district hospital and had a scan performed. The report came back that he had a stone in his stomach. The doctor had advised him to undergo an operation in Vishaptanam Hospital (in Andra Pradesh), and he was arranging his finances in order to go there in April.
At the Feeding Event he felt something like electricity in his body. At that very moment the pain and heaviness were totally gone. And in place of the burning in his eyes he immediately felt a cool sensation. He believes the stone has vanished as his body felt completely comfortable. Praise His mighty name for this wonderful work of God.
2 Sunil arrived to the event late so he sat in the back. He had fallen from his motorcycle three months back. His backbone and head were injured, and from that time on he was not able to ride the motorcycle anymore. His head would suddenly start shaking from time to time. If he did not take extreme care he was in danger of falling.
Within a few minutes at the Event the Lord healed him. He tested himself by standing, sitting, and moving here and there. There was no pain and no shaking of his head at all. Praise the Lord.
3 A widow named Rabanti had suffered from a stroke two years back. The right side of her body had no strength. Walking and performing tasks on her right side were very difficult; she did not have strength to move her right hand and leg. Suddenly strength came to her hand and leg. She started walking and moving her hands without any problem. It was she had been touched by the hand of God.
4 An elderly woman named Chandrapula was not able to speak Oriya (the dialect of Orissa). She could only understand it. In her native dialect she was explaining to our Elijah Challenge trainer that she had not able to walk and that her fingers had no strength. She was not able to leave home as she was in bed most of the time since she was also suffering from arthritis. God Almighty touched her and she felt something like electricity enter and sweep through her body. She said she used to go to bathe with the help of others but now she had come to the front without anybody’s help.
5 A widow, Mama Santilata, had suffered much in her life. Twenty years earlier she had given birth to a baby girl, and after that she became widow. She spoke in a tribal language to our brother, who after hearing her powerful testimony was very moved by how the loving Lord had healed and delivered her.
She had had high blood pressure, and high blood sugar. A month earlier a sorcerer had sent a demon to torment her. From that day onwards four or five times each day she would vomit blood and would lose consciousness. She would talk incessantly and could not remain in one place even for a minute. Her daughter had brought her to the front. I did not know anything that she was seated in the front. Miraculously without disturbing anyone she sat until the very end. She did not vomit, The Lord had touched her and delivered her completely from the demon. On top of that, she testified that she could now understand the language of Oriya!
6 A mother named Namita had an issue of blood for the past one month. To go to the hospital she walked four hours. And so it was very painful for her to see the doctor. But even after taking medication she did not see any changes. As she was seated at the Event still with the issue of blood, she felt the Lord’s healing touch in her body. At that very moment, the bleeding stopped.
7 Chandra Kant was an alcoholic. He would drink day and night. He would quarrel with his wife. Sometimes he would drink and then collapse unconscious somewhere. After waking up he would get up and go home. Yesterday our brother went to his house and told him not to drink wine but to come and attend the Feeding Event. He agreed.
By God’s grace he did not touch a drop of alcohol, and sat at the Feeding Event. When he heard the gospel, tears streamed from his eyes. He understood that he was not doing well. He testified that he accepted the Christ and that he would not drink anymore. Praise the Lord for touching and changing the heart of this hopeless alcoholic as he heard the gospel.
8 A mother named Nehajali Naik suffered from asthma, and she had been admitted to a hospital. Last week she returned from the hospital, but very weak in her body. The Lord touched her and healed her.
There were many people healed as we asked those who were healed to raise their hands. When we asked who had received the Christ, we saw many people raise their hands.
Thank you so much for your prayer and support. We are now able to reach such needy places with the gospel.”
