“Our 2nd Elijah Challenge Gospel Event was held in a totally Rai Sikh community (the Rajput community). Our host Pastor Simon Rai is also from a Rajput background. There was not a single believing family in this village. 

In our event close to 400+ prayed the salvation prayer. There were more than 100 hands raised testifying they were healed as Pastor Simon Rai, our Elijah Challenge-trained evangelist, prayed over the sick at a distance from the front.”

“Pastor Rai told us in our follow-up meeting that there were two or three people from every home in the village who were present and accepted the Lord.

Pastor Rai said that in a few months the whole village will turn to the Lord. Kindly pray for Pastor Simon Rai and his vision.”

Elijah Challenge Co-Worker, North India
July 2019


The Elijah Challenge equips harvest workers to reach resistant people groups effectively and fruitfully by training them to heal the sick miraculously as Jesus did (John 14:11-12)—as irrefutable and compelling evidence that Jesus is the Messiah and the only way to the One True God who created the heavens and the earth.


Gospel Event in Kila Desa Singh Village of Punjab: 380+ accept Christ, 50+ miraculously healed


Our third gospel event was in a village called Kila Desa Singh in the state of Punjab. Around 380+ people prayed the salvation prayer. This was an unreached village with only a few believers.

Our local Pastor Sukhbeer organized the event. Pastor Vikas Teji preached the gospel and ministered to the sick. We had two altar calls later in the meeting, and 60 more prayed the salvation prayer.

We saw more than 50 people raise hands testifying that they were miraculously healed by the Lord. Some of the testimonies:

  • A lady with chronic arthritis was healed.
  • Someone with swelling in the liver, face, and legs was present. The swelling instantly vanished.
  • A man with a severe heart condition who could not afford medical treatment was present and had faith to be healed. He was completely healed and could breathe perfectly normally.
  • A woman who had suffered from a fever for three years was miraculously healed.

Please pray for Pastor Sukhbeer and Pastor Vikas Teji.
