Praise Report – July 2022
In July we had two major gospel meetings and feeding events in Punjab. The first meeting was held in Village Kothe about 15 kms from Bhatinda, Punjab. Over 170 people attended this meeting. 60 people gave their lives to Jesus as they heard the message of salvation preached by Pastor Shakuntla. Pastor Simon Haqq visited this village in the year 2015 and many miracles were witnessed that time. One man who was possessed by the evil spirits and was brough to Pastor Simon’s meeting bound with ropes as he was very violent because of the evil spirit. He was delivered in 2015 meeting. He is now a pastor in the neighbouring area and has about 70-75 people attending his church every Sunday. This year too God manifested his power through miracles and deliverance. A woman came with stiff hand started to move her hand immediately after the prayer. She said she was suffering for a long time and gave her life to Jesus after the miracle. Four people were delivered from the evil spirits. One of the girl who got delivered was forsaken by her husband and family because of the evil spirits. She is now absolutely fine and taking care of her son. She calls Pastor Shakuntala everyday for guidance and counselling.
Next meeting was held at Village Burj Mehma, about 17 kms away from Bhatinda, Punjab. More than 180 people were in attendance. Even though there was no electricity and/or fan the crowd remained undisturbed, everyone remained seated and attentive and hungry for the Word. About 70 people committed their lives to Jesus as they heard the message. A 10 years old girl came with boils all over her body for prayer. She called Pastor Shakuntala after 4 days to testify about her healing. Many senior people who had difficulty in walking testified that they felt better after the prayer. Pastor Shakuntala also shared word of wisdom for many people and they all confirmed and testified the word. Five people were also delivered from the bondage of evil spirits.
In July, four people were baptised in Amritsar, Punjab and 12 people were baptised in Shahjahanpur, Uttar Pradesh. We praise God for adding these precious souls to His kingdom.
Praise God this month Bethel Church also had 12 baptisms. Most of these people are the ones who got saved through the house meetings. We had 32 house meetings to preach the gospel to friends and relatives of our church members. Most of the senior Bethel Church members are engaged in spreading the gospel and evangelism through the house meetings.
We continue to have our weekly bible study online every Saturday with Nishant David. We also have 3 days fasting prayer service on the 1st, 2nd, and the 3rd of every month. Over 40 people join our weekly fasting prayer every Friday at the church hall.
We give all glory to our Lord Jesus. We also thank all our ministry partners and supporters for their prayers, support and love. May Lord Jesus continue to bless you all.
