Trivandrum, Kerala, South India
The state of Kerala is at the southern tip of India
Full Gospel Assembly Melbourne teams up with Indian Ministry
Servants of God and Bible School students associated with Harvest Ministries International were equipped how to heal the sick and cast out demons to demonstrate to the Hindus and Musl__ms that our God is the only true God and that Jesus Christ is the only way to Him. Pastor Robert Mophet is the Director of Harvest Ministries International. They run an elementary school for hundreds of children as well as an orphanage. They also have a Bible School from which they send out pastors to other states of India, often to unreached villages.

The Hindus are the majority here, followed by the Musl__ms who are about 25% of the population of the state of Kerala. The Christians number only about 19%. This is most distressing. According to tradition, Jesus’ disciple Thomas came to proclaim the gospel in South India well over 500 years before Isl–m was brought by Arab traders to India. Could it be that the preaching of the gospel here has lacked power after Thomas passed away? (We are told that the Apostle Thomas is buried in Madras, Tamil Nadu.) Has it been done as Jesus commanded his disciples in Luke 10 where the sick are to be healed as the Kingdom is proclaimed to the lost?
Equipping Seminar for full-time servants of God
After the training, three public Evangelistic Healing Services were held inside a local Assemblies of God Church.
At the first meeting the gospel of Jesus Christ was shared. Afterwards the trained servants of God came forward to heal the infirm in Jesus’ name. This was in accordance with Jesus’ commands to the Seventy in Luke 10:9. The Lord performed various miracles of healing as they laid hands on the infirm and exercised the authority over diseases and demons given to them by the Lord Jesus. Among them was one young girl who was born with a defective eye. Since birth she had been unable to move that eye and could not see anything at a distance. But the Lord healed her. She could move the eye normally and see at a distance. Her father came up to confirm her testimony.
Evangelistic Healing Crusade
A woman was deaf since birth in one ear. The Lord opened up the ear. A woman testified that half of her body had been paralyzed, but the Lord had healed her. An eight-year-old boy who was mostly deaf and dumb since birth was able to hear significantly better. Many women testified that they were healed from long-standing pains in various parts of their bodies.
Through these miracles the Lord Jesus demonstrated to the people beyond any doubt that He had authority to forgive sin. Unfortunately since the meeting was held in a local church, there were few if any unbelievers—Musl__ms or Hindus—present. It is far more effective to hold such meetings in the open-air. However, since there is now a law in India prohibiting foreigners from preaching the gospel in the open-air, we were forced to hold the meeting indoors. But that is not a problem at all because Indians are still free to preach in the open-air. Through these three Healing Services they were trained to do it in the open-air on their own in the future.
At the final Healing Service I preached from Isaiah 53:4-5, arguing that Jesus was able to take up our infirmities because he was pierced for our transgressions. Because of that, we would heal the infirm in Jesus’ name to prove that he had suffered on the cross to bear our sins.
Isaiah 53:4 Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted. 5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.
When after prayer to the Lord I asked for those who wanted to be healed to come forth, four ladies appeared. Three of them were Hindus invited by believing friends. The trained servants of God then laid hands on them as they had been taught in the Seminar. All four were healed and came up to the platform to testify. One had been suffering for six years from her infirmity. The three healed Hindu ladies have seen the proof that Jesus can save them from their sins through His suffering on the cross. The church will follow up on them.
With that, the equipping here in Kerala was concluded. The trained pastors present and future will definitely apply what they were taught to heal the sick and proclaim the Kingdom of God in their villages. Please read below the comments and feedback they gave regarding The Elijah Challenge Seminar.
Pastor Robert Mophet plans to lead his Bible School students in open-air evangelistic rallies in the area to reach the Hindus and Musl__ms. He saw how “easily” it was done during the three evangelistic evenings.
The following was received on October 14, 2007 from Megan Griffith, an Australian geneticist who was a member of the team from Full Gospel Assembly Melbourne which sponsored the meetings in India:
“I would like to add my personal thanks. It was truly a wonderful course for me and a great opportunity to have some solid teaching from the Word of God. So far I am having victory over areas of flesh that have been troubling me for some time. In church today I had the thought to apply this teaching to other areas of my emotions over which I can’t get complete victory so I am interested to see what happens! I have already been sharing about kingly anointing and authority to heal with other Christians and have given your website out upon request. I have included my own short personal testimony at the end of the Indian Pastors.
You will be pleased to know that when we left Kerala we went to the front lines in Orissa and had unexpected opportunities to minister the gospel and healing. At one meeting many of the Hindu people of the village were present, and Team Leader Raymond Seow (an engineer for the Australian government) shared the gospel though the testimony of his mother-in-law. We then stepped out in faith “Elijah Challenge style” and talked about the God who heals. Raymond ministered mass healing. The presence of God was strong and several people were instantly healed. When ministering to one lady I felt power flow through my hand to her injury and she was healed. Another boy I ministered to was instantly healed of pain in both wrists after a short command, but I also prayed a blessing for him as I saw the Spirit on him. He was really touched by the love of God.
At one point during this prayer session I turned around and saw someone receiving Christ (there was no altar call). I later found out it was the village Hindu priest! Another elderly lady was not able to walk and one of her feet was black with rotten flesh. We spoke ministered to her for quite a while and in the end she was able to walk without pain, before then, she was in great agony and was hunched on the ground. God’s presence was real, it was the most touching part of the whole trip. I share this with you as I believe it is the stories that you want to hear to know that your teaching is being put into practice. This coming year will be especially important as we are focusing on reaching out into the community. I am expecting God to do wonderful things.”
Testimony from team member Karina Au:
“This trip really opened my eyes, I saw miracles happen. When we were praying for healing for a deaf and dumb boy, I felt power flow into his ear and he could hear partially. The Pastors from the villages were full of enthusiasm to do ministry and grow in God’s work. I experienced anointing by the Holy Spirit and God’s presence was so real.
During the training of Elijah Challenge teaching, I deeply understood that HE can do it: Nothing is impossible; establish and maintain relationship with God through prayer; and to build the fruit of the Holy Spirit into my personal character and be eager to grow those fruits. These three things are the foundation of believers. I will remember them forever because it so touched my heart.”

38. NAME: Kaurina Au (Australia)
Yes, the course was definitely useful!
Day 1 session: I know the difference between healing the sick and praying for the sick. I understood that every believer has authority to heal the sick, but not mean that they were given the gift of healing. I leant that I need to command the sickness to be healed just like Jesus did which is described in the Bible. I needed to have mountain moving faith to exercise the authority that God gave me.
Day 2 session: I thorough understood the difference between faith in God and faith of God.
Day 3 session: the good parts between current mass evangelism model and the end time model The last point is questions to reflect our understanding. Knowledge about this seminar. Those questions can answer my misunderstanding. They gave me a clear picture of God’s teaching.
Application. The last part of the 3 questions are the principles of healing the sick. I needed to equip myself through God’s words encouraged by other church members, have faith in God. That He can do it, nothing is impossible, establish and maintain relationship with God through prayer, build the fruit of the Holy Spirit as my personal character and eager to grow those fruits. These three things are the foundation of believers. I will remember them forever because it so touch my heart. The next step is exercise the authority God gave me and command the disease be gone with mountain moving faith. I can apply this teaching in my daily life: My family members, cell group members, friends and the other church members. However, it is hard to apply in my workplace because it is non-religious and I need o keep praying in this area.
Pastor W., thank you for teaching us. It is a valuable seminar. It is very useful for the rest of my who like. I certainly will share your teaching with my husband and children. They have had no chance to participate. I look forward to see you again in Melbourne or somewhere else. Thank you again, God bless, Karina.
39. NAME: Megan Griffith, Melbourne, Australia
The course was definitely one of the most useful courses both for my personal life and ministry. In fact I had been praying about how to deal with a personal issue for the past two years, earlier this year I knew that God had answered my prayer, but I had to wait for the answer. I believe that teaching contained in The Elijah Challenge was the answer. Now I know that I need to take up the authority that God has given me over my flesh, as well as in ministry, which was wonderful revelation for me. So far it is working! We also had the chance to practice ministering ‘Elijah Challenge’ style in the villages when we visited Orissa. We saw many people healed. Two people I ministered to were instantly and completely healed of wrist pain, others required more than one dose but were also healed of various illnesses. One Hindu village priest came to Christ even without an alter call. It was fantastic for me to experience this, and to understand that I don’t have to wait for some special anointing or move of the Spirit to heal, but just to exercise the God-given authority. My prayer is that I will continue in my workplace in Australia, and not give into fear and unbelief. I am so thankful to the Lord and also to Ps W. and his team in the USA for their service to the body of Christ. God bless you.
