We have covered a lot of territory both physically and spiritually in Kashmir. Our second week we traveled to Kargil along the India/Pakistani line of control and prayer walked for 2 days, along the river, in the surrounding hills, and through the town. Many missionaries have prayed and labored there over the years with little results. Those who have become Christians in the past have left and there are currently no known believers in Kargil. God has highlighted this area to us as a place He’s wanting to break through…so we continue to pray.
Next we went to Leh where we had 4 days of prayer walking and ministering to the local believers. There are less than 200 believers in this entire region dominated by Buddhism. We were able to meet with Pastor Elijah of the Moravian church and have a wonderful time of prayer with him. The church has been divided for some time now and has brought much damage to the name of Jesus. The Holy Spirit ministered deeply to Pastor Elijah and we have great expectation of victory in the days to come. Later, God directed our steps to visit a home of another Moravian pastor in a nearby town, who, I found out, has been opposing Pastor Elijah. I spoke about unity, humility and forgiveness…and God smiled.
