Dr. Davy Hermanus is The Elijah Challenge Coordinator for Indonesia, the fourth most populous country in the world with more Muslims than any other nation. Below are Davy’s reports from Indonesia and Malaysia.
The child was not at all able to hear and speak as he was born deaf. I invited participants and the boy to step forward for a demonstration of healing in front of the audience. I invited Rev. Jerry Tobing to minister the healing with me for the purpose of proving that our Lord Jesus Christ is alive, and able to heal through us as a message to the people that they may believe that miraculous healing is still valid as in the Scriptures.
First I led prayer to the Lord that He would lead our work in healing the sick as affirmation of the teaching which had been received by the participants. Then I put my finger into his left ear and ask Rev. Jerry to put his finger into the other ear. Then we cast out the deaf and dumb spirit, commanding the ear to be open in the name of Jesus.
After the first time of ministry there was no change in the boy’s hearing. I ministered to him a second time, but still there was no change in his condition. Our faith was being challenged. After still another round of ministry there was still no change. A thought went through my mind that I should give up for the time being, but my heart was compelled by the Spirit of God to push on again, especially since the child was from a Buddhist family. I felt the occasion could be a good opportunity to be a witness to his Buddhist parents. The uncle who brought him to our Seminar was a believer.
I told the audience that we would minister to the boy again. We invited the believers to join us. Firmly and without hesitation we both commanded the deafness to go in Jesus’ name. After we spoke to him to test his hearing, the boy smiled and nodded his head, glancing at me that he had heard something. I told him to repeat the words “Jesus, Jesus” and he tried to follow me! The first words he ever heard and repeated were the name of our Lord.
We ministered to him one or two more times for his complete healing. After that I asked the keyboardist to lead us in hearty worship unto the Lord. The children were especially happy to hear our songs of praise!
Praise God for doing this mighty work in our midst to confirm the teaching on miraculous healing as evidence to the world that Jesus is the Son of God. We had persevered in ministering healing to this boy ten times over a period of nearly ten minutes.”
