We had another marvellous Feeding Event in a village called Dengurikiya inhabited by people from the Kandha tribe. A tribal and illiterate village, the people are very simple and humble. The Lord did amazing things over there.
Around 217 tribal people accepted the Lord Jesus Christ.
Sumanti had a problem with her eyesight. For the past two years she could not see clearly from her left eye. Jesus touched her eye and she could see far very clearly.
Padisha was suffering from arthritis. For seven months he could not bend his knee, and whenever he sat he would have to stretch his legs out in order to sit. Even in the meeting he was sitting like that. But at the end of the ministry when he checked his knee and body, he had no more pain. Praise God.
Subhakanta was suffering from some unknown disease. Even his doctor could not diagnose the problem. Usually he would have a high temperature in his body, and he always felt sick and feverish. Sometimes he felt pain in his chest. Even during our program he was feverish. Praise God, he testified that Jesus healed him.
Pamira was suffering from pain in her womb as well as pain in both legs. She had been admitted to the hospital for four days yet she could not experience relief. Praise God, the Lord healed her completely.
A young girl named Suparna had stomach pain. From time to time she would experience the pain. Her parents were very worried for their daughter. And whenever the pain started she would start crying. The village people knew about her pathetic condition. But she experienced the healing touch of God.
For two years Bimala suffered from a migraine headache. After treatment he was quite well but he began to suffer from chest pain. Afterwards both the migraine and the chest pain were intolerable for him. He was sad and depressed that he could not take his +2 exam. During the prayer, power came upon his head and he felt better. Praise God, Jesus touched him and he was healed.
Sabita had a small boil in the right side of her chest. It was slowly increasing in size but without pain. She kept quiet and did not inform anybody. Something like electricity came upon her while the healing ministry was going on. Praise God, the boil had completely disappeared.
Amiya was playing cricket with friends and fell, injuring his backbone. He underwent treatment but with no relief. He was not able to run, not even to walk fast because of the pain. But at the meeting the pain left. He can run and walk freely now. Praise God.
There were a few elderly men and women who wanted to share their testimony of being healed from high blood pressure, deafness, asthma, skin disease, of problem with their nostril, etc. But wind and rain came and disrupted the last part of the meeting. Most of the villagers took the food from our Feeding Event home while a few sat around and ate on the street. Thank you very much for praying and supporting us to reach such a people group. It is a privilege for us to reach such group with the gospel of Christ.
