Preaching in Uttar Pradesh

Posted by Jeffrey Dsouza on October 22, 2015 at 4:55 AM Comments comments (0)

One young man who heard the gospel through us made a decision to believe Christ, and started following...Then came the issue of his marriage. Since He is from Uttar Pradesh, he went to his village to have a look at the proposal made to him. Along with that, He also started sharing Christ and praying for those who were sick and oppressed by demons. God stood with him and manifested His power. A number of people repented and accepted Jesus, because they got healed or delivered from oppression. He keeps in touch with them via phone.

There were those who threatened him as well, but undaunted by the threats, he prayed and continued preaching and praying. God caused him to triumph with boldness and change of heart in the persecutors.

My wife and I are distributing tracts in our locality. The response has not been very good. Help in prayer for fruit in our labours.

One day as Jeffrey visited the flour mill in the neighborhood, out of his mouth came the statement "have you found the truth" to which came the reply that he has been wanting to know. Then Jeffrey took up the opportunity to give him the gospel and now continues to regularly meet him to teach him more

One young man from Uttar Pradesh who had a habit of drinking alcohol, had an accident with a motor cycle. He was in pain and sitting on his bed. On preaching the word to him, he responded that he wanted to change how he was living. So he was led in a prayer of repentance and faith in the Lord. After which hands were laid on him for healing and deliverance. He started shaking under the power of God for a few seconds. God removed the pain supernaturally. He stood up to show that the pain was gone. The following Sunday he began attending the worship meetings. :)

Preaching the gospel

Pastor is preaching the word to a Maharashtrian man, whose understanding has been darkened and now the light of the gospel is shining. May the Lord open his mind and change his heart to the glory of His name. Every week, this man gets to hear the word of God along with his wife. His daughters claim to already have faith in Jesus. This being due to the word being sown in their heart previously. So may they also grow in their knowledge of the Lord.

On the way to visit the members, Pastor got an opportunity to preach the gospel to an elderly man in the neighborhood. He is sick with blood pressure issue and paralysis. He is hindered by his son who resists conversion from Hinduism to Christianity. How sad that this man is turning away from the free offer of eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ. :(

Healing

God has given us an opportunity to minister to a family from Uttar Pradesh. The woman had brain tumor and was operated twice. Because of this she could not walk and also lost her eye-sight. We prayed for God to reveal himself to them and slowly but surely, the healing began. She began getting strength in her hands and a feeling inside to get up and walk. She began responding to this and is now able to walk. We believe God is able to also restore her eye-sight. Her daughter, daughter-in-law and now even her son believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.
