“At our Elijah Challenge Feeding Event in the hilly region of Killar, Damanjodi in the state of Orissa around five hundred people from Scheduled Castes and the Kobi Tribe accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.”
The Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes are official designations given to various groups of historically disadvantaged people in India.
“Thank God for performing many miraculous healings among such people groups to bring them to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Reports of miraculous healing
A retired school teacher and village leader named NK Bhatra (below) was suffering from arthritis for a long time. He was not able to move his fingers. He had become addicted to the medication he was taking for the arthritis, and could not sleep without taking it. The joints in both of his legs were very painful. At the Event the Lord healed him instantly. He was able to move his fingers freely and the pain which had tormented his body for so long was gone.
Ajnati had suffered terribly from bleeding. Because her body had became weak with very low hemoglobin she had received a dozen blood transfusions. Her head would shake nearly nonstop and she felt as if she could faint at any time. But during the event she felt the Lord’s healing touch in her body and received strength. As we were ministering to the sick her shaking suddenly stopped. Even though she stayed with us at the meeting for a long time, Ajnati felt no pain.
For five months Rasmi had a small tumor in her stomach which caused pain. But she was reluctant to share it with anyone lest the bad news eventually leak out to the entire village. When the pain became unbearable she told her mother who took her to the hospital. The doctor said that it was still very small, but since it could grow he wanted to perform surgery in two months. And so they saved up money for the operation. But praise the Lord before the date of the operation we came to their village for the Feeding Event. There Jesus touched her and the tumor disappeared!
A poor widow named Kanti, hearing that there would be healing prayer at our Event, came expecting a miracle. She had been suffering from fever for a long time. She had taken medicine but her temperature never came down. She felt ill constantly. She thought that some sorcerer had attacked her in such a way that she could not get well. But at our Event Kanti was touched by the healing power of our Lord Jesus and was healed.
There were so many who raised their hands indicating that they had been healed by the Lord. Praise His wonderful name. Thank you so much for your prayer and support which make it possible for us to reach such places.”
