We had an awesome first week in Himachal Pradesh and Punjab with my friend, Mushtaq. Grace and Shirley were both very busy praying for people bringing healing and deliverance to many…they have been wonderful to have on the team for those first several days. The Presence of God has been beautiful as we traveled from city to city…each day was filled from morning to night ministering, praying, encouraging, and drinking endless cups of chai…feeling very humbled, thankful and overwhelmed at the love displayed to me this week…the people here have welcomed me as if they were welcoming Jesus. My heart is forever grateful for these beautiful people who pour themselves out daily for the Kingdom. Please continue to pray that God would pour out His Spirit and bring a Great Revival to “the Land of 5 Rivers.”
Our second week was just as full and blessed, ministering with another friend, Solomon. We saw many healings, and even Solomon experienced a personal healing of a severe food allergy he’s had for 5 years. As we visited one area new to us, the pastor spoke of the great difficulty ministering here…how many missionaries would come but leave defeated. I immediately knew this was our assignment…to bring breakthrough to this region. After our time there, we all sensed a level of breakthrough. We are anticipating great reports.
Now well into week three, we have connected with a pastor in a small village, and were blessed to have a service in the prayer hall we helped build. Then we (a small but mighty team), began our trek in the Himalayan mountains, prayer walking through villages where there are no Christians. We will have several days of trekking in two different regions in north India. Please pray God will pour out His Spirit throughout the trip, starting a revival in one village that will spread all across these mountains. Please pray there will be open doors for ministry as His Presence enters the villages, that we would find houses of peace and open hearts. Pray for safety, good travel weather, divine health and strength/endurance…11.5 miles our first day with 25-30 pound packs. Some of us aren’t used to this!
It’s been three amazing weeks so far, and there’s still more to come! Thank you for your prayers that empower us daily to move in Him and with Him…God is good!
