Yesterday morning I returned to Bhawanipatna. In spite of heavy rain we were able to reach the remote village of Gpadar. This village is very beautifully surrounded by a mountain. There are fourteen families who live there. This was an opportunity for me to go and preach the gospel to such a needy, unreached people group. From the main road to that village it’s around 16 km. It is hilly and the road is rocky, but thank God somehow we reached there by motorbike.
The Lord graciously helped us to minister, breaking their old tradition of practicing sorcery and idol worship since 1985. Several people died, were killed, and suffered a lot because of this.
A sorcerer there was able to become a tiger, bear or cat. He would kill people by becoming a tiger or a bear. I was amazed to hear about it, and it was difficult to believe that such practices took place in that village. But it was true. Many people died and were severely injured in this attack. Due to this it became a police matter.
Because of heavy rain we did not have a public meeting, but we went to each family and to share the gospel and minister to them personally. A few people were sick and we ministered to them, and the Lord healed them instantly. It was an awesome experience to meet with them and reach them by personal evangelism. The entire village believed in Christ and accepted Him as their personal Saviour. They are simple and receptive, but workers are not there to reach them with gospel.
It was a new experience for us. Praise the Lord for those precious souls who came to Christ.
—- Two women were delivered from demon attacks.
—- A 2-year-old baby girl was sick and she was healed instantly.
—- A gentleman had a urinal infection and was healed completely.
—- A woman had a disease in her uterus for three years and was healed.
—- An elderly man was suffering from knee pain for many years and was healed.
Thank you so much for praying and supporting me in reaching such unreached places.
