“Let me share with you a significant testimony of miraculous healing.”
Mrs. Das belongs to a high caste of Hindu Brahmins. Since 2008 she had suffered from severe arthritis. After consultation with specialists, she had undergone treatment in many highly-respected hospitals in Odisha (Orissa) as well as other states. The expense for such treatments was enormous. For months and months she had taken prescription medication from various doctors regularly. There was no change in the arthritis, so she went to a better-equipped hospital in the big city of Vishakhapatnam in the state of Andhra Pradesh. She also sought treatment in Bilaspur in the state of Madhya Pradesh. She had undergone several tests and taken the various medications given to her by her doctors, who monitored her case very closely. But after spending hundreds of thousands of rupees, her recovery was nowhere in sight.
One day Mrs. Das suffered unbearable pain in her body forcing her to receive 40 injections within two hours for reduction of the pain. Undergoing all this she went into depression.
Last year, however, one of her relatives was miraculously delivered from demon-possession in the name of Jesus. Mrs. Das heard the testimony. Despite this she would not receive ministry in the name of Jesus for her desperate situation. For her, Jesus is the God of lower-class people. After all, she was a high-class Brahmin.
Finally, her own mother forced her come meet with us. In much pain and with much hesitation she came to us. We then ministered to her with authority and power in the wondrous name of Jesus Christ, and Mrs. Das was marvelously healed of the arthritis. Her pain miraculously vanished in Jesus’ name. Earlier she had not been able even to put on her saree due to the arthritis which had virtually paralyzed her. But after the Lord healed her, she put on her saree! She then believed in the Lord and accepted Him as her Lord and Savior.
(But her older son did not agree with her decision to believe in Jesus. She has requested prayer for him.)
Last week we returned to her home and had a prayer meeting with her. She shared with us the news that in her village a woman was sick, and had come to (now) Sister Das to receive ministry. Wonderfully, the Lord healed her after Sister Das ministered to her in Jesus’ wondrous name.”
Elijah Challenge Co-Worker in India
November 5, 2022
Supernatural miracles in Third World Missions do not conflict with Cessationism
Endorsement from Distinguished Pastor with Doctorate from conservative Westminster Theological Seminary
Many more extraordinary reports from our nameless workers
The Elijah Challenge equips nameless harvest workers to reach resistant people groups fruitfully by training them to heal the sick miraculously and consistently as Jesus did and as he promised that believers would do (John 14:11-12)—as irrefutable evidence that Jesus is the Messiah and the only way to the One True God who created the heavens and the earth. In the green link above there are posted approximately 800 reports of the miraculous similar to those at the top of this page. These 800 reports (out of thousands of reports) were received from our workers during approximately the past four years.
Since 2018 our trained workers in and around Odisha have planted 1,205 new house churches with over 48,000 new believers through May 2022, reaching 38 previously unreached people groups, including high caste Hindu groups which are among the most resistant and difficult to reach. This is in the region of Orissa (Odisha) State alone, considered the poorest state in India where Fundamentalist Hinduism reigns. Water baptism is illegal. Up in North India our trained harvest workers are seeing similar harvests among the Hindus and Sikhs.
Mission Leaders, if we are available we are able to train your Third World harvest workers with The Elijah Challenge—at our own expense. We can do so using the zoom app.
