Reports from Elijah Challenge Nepal Coordinator Tee Joo Tatt
“I just came back from 13 days training various pastors and leaders with The Elijah Challenge in 7 different places in the country of Nepal:
- Wed 29 Oct – Teaching & rally in Bijaya Church, Panauti, Kavre
- Thu 30 Oct – Teaching & rally in Nabin Church, Basundhara, Kathmandu – Janak Raj Sharma
- Fri 31 Oct – Teaching & rally in New Life Apostolic Church, Balkhu, Lalitpur
- Sat 1 Nov – Teaching & rally in Asha Church, Mahankal, Cabahil, Kathmandu
- Sun 2 Nov – Teaching & rally in Koinonia Thankot church – Anil Tamang
- Tue 4 Nov – Teaching & rally in Lal Bahadur Tamang’s church Thimsure village – more than 1 hour trek from Aboo Khaireni in Gorkha
- Fri 7 Nov – Teaching & rally in Bhaktapur Shalom Assemblies of God Church
It was very good and many were healed.
The people who were trained were ministering healing to the sick and many were healed. Deafness in on ear, headaches, knee pain, back pain, shoulder pain, gastric and many other sicknesses were healed. Praise God!
I was really under attack especially on the last of the 7 days of training and evangelistic training rally – I received an email from my company where I do software for a Human Resource Management Software – the email says that they were very disappointed with my work – apparently the customer needed some changes and it was due on 31 Oct and I could not be contacted to make relevant changes. This email I received at 9am and 9:30am I was to start training at Bhaktapur Shalom AOG Church. I was very upset and in fact I wrote to my boss that I would not want to continue working since they felt so disappointed but I could not do work in Nepal with my tight schedule and I had 5 days of training straight and I was exhausted at the end of the day since I was alone doing the training.
At that time I received the email, I had no more balance on my phone card and I found one Nepali pastor – Pastor Andy Limbu of Sydney Nepali Fellowship. He prayed with many Bible verses of encouragement and love, and I was in tears. I really wept but at the end of the prayer I was filled so much with God’s love that I was able to laugh at the situation and was able to train for the whole day. From about 11am to about 5pm. But praise God that more than 22 were confident to minister healing and many miracles happened there. I got them to clap their hands when there was a complete healing and I heard clapping many times. Praise God!
The next morning I preached in quite a big church in Kathmandu – Patan Koinonia Church. I shared this incident and preached on Jesus calming the storm. I shared my experience where I thought I had lost my job but still trusting in God to be my Provider. I also shared a little about The Elijah Challenge in the sermon and the miracles. I was asked to pray for many people but one that I remembered vividly was a mother who asked us to pray for her daughter who looked like she was in her twenties. I laid my fingers to her mouth and commanded the tongue to be loosed in Jesus’ name [as Jesus did in Mark 7:33-34]. I asked her to say “Amen” and she said it. Then I asked her to say “Hallelujah” and she said it! Praise God!
Mark 7:32 There some people brought to him a man who was deaf and could hardly talk, and they begged Jesus to place his hand on him. 33 After he took him aside, away from the crowd, Jesus put his fingers into the man’s ears. Then he spit and touched the man’s tongue. 34 He looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, “Ephphatha!” (which means “Be opened!”). 35 At this, the man’s ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly.
Now my company has asked me to finish the work and looks like all has been forgotten. Praise God!”
