September 2018: Second batch of disciples heal the sick & cast out demons; villagers accept Christ


“Praise God for His grace and protection upon our workers. We have received reports from our second batch of disciples trained at the beginning of the year.

In a village called Kariguda a man named Karuna Kar was suffering from a bad throat infection for one month. His throat was swollen and painful. Two of our workers ministered to him, and he felt relief instantly. The next morning there was no more swelling. Before that he would drink a lot of alcohol. He would bite his wife almost everyday. But after experiencing healing in his body he stopped drinking and  biting his wife. He and his family accepted Christ. Our worker shared that Karuna’s new lifestyle will bring many to Christ in that village. Most of the people drink alcohol in that village, and their living standard is very poor. Whatever they earn they spend on alcohol. Another woman asked our worker to pray for her husband.

From day to day man named Rama was very weak in both of his legs. He had been suffering from some kind of disease, but had not been able to get well even though he had taken several different kinds of medication. Our trained worker hearing about Rama first fasted for a day, and then went to Rama’s village where he ministered to him over a period of three days. The weakness slowly left his legs and he was able to walk straight.

A man named Madhab Sabar was severely depressed. At night he would have demonic nightmares. He could feel a spirit coming to him and threatening him. So he lived in fear. Our workers went to his house and ministered to him and also prayed over the rooms in the home. Praise the Lord that very night he had no more nightmares. The fear left him.

A young man named Hare Krishan had been having seizures. He was very grieved suffering like that at such a young age. Our Elijah Challenge workers ministered to him with authority over the telephone. From that day onward the seizures stopped and he was fine.He shared that if he has no more seizures in the days ahead that he will serve the Lord, testifying from village to village about what the Lord has done for him.

Thank you so much for your prayer and support.”
