Reports from Elijah Challenge-trained servants of God in India

“In the month of November three major evangelistic meetings and feeding events were organized in Chhattisgarh. Pastor Shakuntala and Pastor Hanok Nathanial had a one-day gospel meeting and feeding event at a small village at Bandi in Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh. This meeting was attended by over 180 people and about 65 people accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. Pastor Shakuntala and Pastor Hanok prayed for those in need and many people testified of healing and deliverance. Six people were delivered from evil spirits and they praised God as they were set free. One man reported after 2 days, healing from skin infection as his wounds started to dry up. One woman who came with severe back pain and couldn’t even sit was healed and started jumping with joy, praising God. Additionally, a girl with a swollen stomach for 7-8 months, despite extensive medical treatment, found relief and healing when Pastor Shakuntala prayed in the name of Jesus. And many wonderful works of the Lord happened there and healings from various diseases took place.”


“Another gospel meeting and feeding event was organized by Pastor Hanok in village Changeri, Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh. Pastor Shakuntala preached the word of God and over 85 people committed their lives to Lord Jesus in a gathering of 325 people. People in this poor village were very happy to receive a good meal. Over 75 people testified of the touch of Holy Spirit and healings. More than 18 people were delivered from the evil spirits. An elderly man was not able to raise his hands for a long time. When the Holy Spirit descended upon him, he was healed and started praising the Lord with both hands. Another individual, previously addicted to drugs and dealing with drugs for 18 years, pledged to stop this harmful behaviour upon hearing the gospel of Jesus Christ.”


“Pastor Santosh organized another gospel meeting and feeding event in village Girwar, Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh. A great move of Holy Spirit was experienced in this meeting as Pastor Shakuntala preached the word of God and prayed over the sick and needy along with Pastor Santosh. Over 200 people attended this meeting and more than 50 people accepted Lord Jesus as their Saviour. Many people testified of healings and deliverance among which was a testimony of a brother who had been unemployed for 6 months. He asked Pastor Shakuntala to lay hands and pray for his job situation. He subsequently landed in a good job after three days. And many people received the gift of tongues in this meeting, and many people healed various diseases.”


“This month we have started visiting the hospitals every Thursday to preach the gospel to the sick people and pray for them.”
