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.
We were able to visit with an Indian missionary working here for 4 years. Just recently they have begun to see some people come to Christ and are experiencing some breakthrough. We have been praying for this couple for 2 years now and we rejoice in this good news.
While in Leh we also prayer walked some Buddhist strongholds, releasing the Presence of God. We stayed at a guest house that is owned by Christians who have become dear family to us. Our last evening we had dinner together along with Pastor Elijah and his son. We had a great time of prayer, prophecy and healing. Next summer we will return to spend 30 hours in nonstop worship and intercession in Leh. Won’t you consider joining us?
God is moving in North India. Thank you for all your prayers and giving to make this possible. We couldn’t do it without you!
The final week of our prayer journey will be in Nepal through 9/14.
