“Gerardo is a hardworking man,” said the team member in Costa Rica. “He suffers from an inability to speak even though he can hear clearly. Gerardo accepted the Lord Jesus Christ following a JESUS Film presentation. He is active in the local church and is serving faithfully.”
Praise God our limitations do not limit His ability to use us.
“He suffered for me!” said Angel in the Philippines. “I am so thankful the Lord saved me. His suffering gave me life. He wants all of us to have life in Him.”
Pray for others to come to realize the love of Christ in their lives.
“Bishu’s mother was healed,” said the team member in Bangladesh. “His mother was possessed by a demon which tried to kill her by hanging her. She had to be monitored all the time. We had been to this village before and established a preaching point. The people believed Bishu’s mother was being punished by a local goddess because of her family’s faith in Christ. They challenged us to demonstrate the power of Jesus. We went to Bishu’s mother and read from the Bible and began to pray for her. Bishu’s mother started screaming, jumping, and flailing her hands and legs, but after a few moments she was quiet and closed her eyes. She fell asleep as we continued our prayer for her. A few minutes later, she opened her eyes and was calm. She behaved normally and was able to talk clearly. The people were amazed to see God’s power. We returned a week later to find Bishu’s mother doing well and the believers thriving.
Praise God for demonstrating His amazing power and love.
