The leadership conference was very well attended up north near Kullu. There were more than 200 people there for two days, one of the largest gatherings they’ve had there, more than double last year. There were long periods of people crying out to the Lord followed by very long times of complete silence as His presence was so heavy.
In the afternoon we had the worship team play and the people danced and danced. Everyone was filled with such joy and freedom. Joby spoke in the afternoon and once again the presence of God came in a mighty way. I then began to call out things to be healed, backs, knees, stomachs, eyes, and headaches, shoulders, etc. and with each one there were many people who stood, and with each one it seemed every person who stood was healed.
They were all laughing and smiling, waving their arms when I asked who had been healed of each one. I had done this before but had never seen such a measure of God’s grace to heal. And we did not lay hands on any of them, it was just God touching each one of them. At end of time for prayer for healing they brought up a little girl who had a tumor in her throat. We got the report the next morning that the tumor is gone. Our God is so wonderful.
The pastors and people here are very excited. They all say they have never experienced the presence of God in this measure before. They are asking us to return next year for at least 3 days. They are looking for a larger gathering place as we have outgrown the location we have been using. We then visited a couple of the churches in the evening and once again had wonderful prayer and fellowship with some of the people.
We were able to visit the two businesses here that we helped finance. They both are doing very well and are prospering. The pastor who owns the chicken shop supplied all the chicken for lunch for the conference. The stitching center is doing great business and has supplied four jobs for women in the church.
It really is wonderful to see how the church here is growing. Their love for God is strong and they are full of joy. They say that this area has been a very difficult place to build a church for many years but now is the time of God’s visitation and the people are full of joy at His coming.
Just got word Mushtaq has sent invitations to all the pastors in the Shimla area inviting them to come to a Healing and Revival conference next weekend. This was to be their yearly CNI conference and it was just raised to a whole new level. Really appreciate prayer for this very historic event – they truly want breakthrough and the Presence of God to come in great measure – His presence changes everything, amen?!
