“Greetings to you in Jesus’ precious name. Praise God for His grace upon the ministry He has so graciously entrusted to us. Thank you so much for your prayer and support.
Selected harvest field reports:
In the village of Pradhan Para, a man named Rohi Das had suffered from kidney disease. He had been under treatment for a long time in various hospitals and was taking medication, but was not getting well. After spending so much money with no improvement, he was sure he was going to die. But he heard about our Elijah Challenge workers and went to them pleading for help. Our workers ministered to him on a Sunday. He then experienced the Lord’s touch in his body, and was miraculously healed. Rohi and his family accepted Christ and are now attending one of our many house fellowships.
The Elijah Challenge equips harvest workers to reach resistant people groups effectively and fruitfully by training them to heal the sick miraculously as Jesus did (John 14:11-12)—as irrefutable and compelling evidence that Jesus is the Messiah and the only way to the One True God who created the heavens and the earth.
For eight long years, a woman had been suffering from a stomach disorder. From her village to town she had been treated by many doctors and at various hospitals. She would feel good for a few days, but the pain would then return. Her doctor advised her to go for a scan at the major hospital in the state capital. She listened to his advice and did so, but the scans came back all negative. They then decided that it was a demonic attack, and so summoned a sorcerer.
The sorcerer came. He gave her some medicine and performed some mantras, but she did not get well. Then our Elijah Challenge workers stopped by her village, and were told about the woman’s suffering. For three evenings they ministered to her in Jesus’ name. She was completely healed, and her family accepted Christ.
A man named Mada Lima lived in the village of Lachmanguda. He suffered from high blood pressure, and his head would shake nonstop. With seven people watching, our workers ministered to him in the name of Jesus Christ. Instantly Mada felt the healing power of the Lord in his body. His head stopped spinning and shaking. Both he and his wife accepted Christ.
Nakul had suffered from arthritis for a year, and so had difficulty walking. Every morning he had to take prescription drugs; if he didn’t he would have problems that day. Our Elijah Challenge workers ministered to him, and he was miraculously healed in Jesus’ name. Nowadays he is walking without having to take any medicine.
In a village called Kambaguda an elderly woman was suffering from back pain for a year. She needed a brace secured around her back as advised by her doctor, and also a staff to get around. But after our workers ministered to her, she was miraculously healed. She took off the brace and was walking around freely. She believed in our Lord Jesus and accepted Him.
In the village of Bhaleri a man named Daitari had suffered from malaria for four days. A fever ravished his body. Injections could not bring his fever down. When our Elijah Challenge workers ministered to him, the fever suddenly went down. The people were astonished to witness the instant miraculous healing from the Lord—something the injections failed to do.
Glory to God!”
