Elijah Challenge Kerala, India
December 24, 2015
The Special Forces Colonel (a retired U.S. Army Colonel with 30 years serving in Special Forces) and his family ministered in the city of Vagamon high in the mountains of Kerala, India. There were several who took a three-hour bus ride to attend and many walked the treacherous mountain roads in the dark to experience God’s glory. It was an evangelistic event followed by salvation, healing and deliverance. Many continued to arrive during the worship and the message during which the lectern had to be moved to make way for the overflow crowd. People were sitting on the edge of the stage. There were approximately 10 pastors and another 60 people in attendance. There were two salvations and many miracles of healing.
There was a young girl who was home for Christmas from boarding school. She had a deep cut on the heel of her foot. She suffered greatly. She was also an athlete in track and the pain kept her from participating. We ministered healing and she was healed from all pain and she gave a public testimony in the church of her healing.

December 27, 2015: Evangelistic Event at the Jesus for Gentiles Church in Kottayam, India

December 28-29, 2015: The Elijah Challenge Training in Kottayam, India at the Jesus for Gentiles Church
We trained approximately 60 pastors, laymen and laywomen in The Elijah Challenge.
After several sessions and practical exercises we encouraged the pastors to invite those who they knew who had infirmities to come and attend sessions. Also, we made an announcement that we would minister healing at a distance via mobile phones. There were approximately eight pastors who made phone calls to people in their church who were sick. One pastor called a woman in the hospital suffering from kidney failure. As the pastor at our Training Event commanded healing in Jesus’ name over his phone, the woman experienced sensations in the part of her body where her kidneys are. She testified that her kidneys were recreated or healed. As she was repeating the commands in the name of Jesus after the pastor, she was also laying her hands on her caregiver also in the room with her. The caregiver also experienced a miraculous healing while the sister who had the kidney failure was ministering to her. She had been suffering from a cyst on the side of her head. While the sister for whom she had been providing care ministered to her in Jesus’ name, the cyst in her head dissolved. This was one of the many healings that occurred during the two-day training event.
A man born deaf received healing in both ears as the pastors ministered healing as Jesus did and as taught in The Elijah Challenge.
There was a young girl who requested healing for her hearing. After praying we asked what happened, and she said she could hear a dog barking in the distance.
