Ricardo is an Elijah Challenge Instructor in Brazil
I would like share with you about the training I gave here on the weekend in our church in Itajubá. It was awesome. Really fruitful.
It was the first time our church in fact left the four walls and went outside as the Body of Christ. We had about 40 people overall taking part in the training. Our pastor was really happy with everything – the content, the way it was presented, the way the church interacted, and of course with the outcome. Many were healed from various conditions, and one man was set free from demonization.
Some people’s knees were healed, some of heart disease. Headache was a common condition too. There was a Catholic man who was visited by me and my co-laborers who had had heart surgery a year ago. However, he still felt lots of pain and his heart was enlarged. We ministered to him and all the pain in his heart and headache were gone. He felt his heart beating normally as it returned to its normal size. It was great!

There was another man who was drunk when we knocked on his door. He told us he was about to kill himself. We got into his house and immediately I felt a heavy atmosphere inside. The moment we laid hands on him, there was a demonic manifestation, and he was set free. We cast out the demon, and the man went to church with us later on.
We began on Friday night with the training and went through Sunday night. We had four training sessions, two door-to-door “sessions”, and one evangelistic service.
We also had 2 missionaries from Missão Horizontes with us, and two pastors from São Paulo.
