“At the beginning of the month we visited many villages to visit and encourage our believers. In some places we were told that the earthly remains of believers who had passed on would not be allowed burial in village graveyards.
Our Elijah Challenge workers are going from village to village, healing the sick, casting out demons, and preaching the gospel as Jesus commanded. Below are some late reports.
In the village of Baneigarh, Luhara, an elderly man was unable to walk for a year. Only with the help of a staff could he take a few steps. He had been to hospitals, had consulted doctors who had given him both ayurvedic and homeopathic treatments without any results. But when our worker ministered to him in the name of Jesus, he began to walk without the staff. Praise God he and his family members accepted our Lord Jesus Christ.
Sukh Mani had been unable to hear for three years. She had been diagnosed with some kind of disease, and then she lost her hearing. Praise God her hearing was instantly restored when our workers ministered to her in the name of the Lord. She accepted Christ.
From his waist and below Rahul Pram had almost no strength and so had severe difficulty walking. He also suffered from pain in both legs. On Sunday he came to the service and was instantly healed by the Lord.
For two years Sukanya Naik had been suffering from a problem with her menstrual period. She also had pain in her bones. The medication she was taking did not help. But she was healed when our workers ministered to her in the name of the Lord.
A woman had gone into the jungle [something villagers do on a regular basis, for example, to gather firewood] on a certain morning. When she returned home Sukanya was demonized. She started tearing at her clothes, throwing her belongings all over, and screaming. Our Elijah Challenge worker happened to live in a nearby village. Sukanya’s son ran to our worker’s home and shared what had happened to his mother. As soon as our worker entered their home, she screamed, saying, “why have you come here…you cannot do anything to me.”
With much boldness and authority our worker commanded the demon to leave. It threw her down to the floor, and then left her. The entire family accepted Christ.
I will continue to send more reports. All the glory to God!”
