Leaving Blantyre to go to the village of Chikwawa
On our way to the villages from Blantyre Dr. Mike Walker and I stopped at a gas station in our vehicle number. Dr. Mike Walker and I began to dialogue with a young worker named Ian. Ian was skittish about us praying with him while at work. However, we did get to pray with a young lady worker named Kathy. She requested prayer for financial provision. Dr. Mike and I prayed for her about this.
Soon after praying with Kathy we prayed for a young man named Ben who walked over to us and requested prayer for freedom of a stronghold. We prayed for Ben to be set free. Then I asked Ben if he was a follower of Jesus Christ. He indicated to me that he was not. So, I led Ben to Faith in Christ today.
By this time Rayland and Jimmy also joined in with Dr. Mike and I to minister with other gas station workers. It was FUN ministering to the employees.
We also stopped one other time at an intersection and I called a Presbyterian Minister wearing a collar over to come and receive prayer. He walked over to receive and while doing so we gave him an Evangecube. (A cube designed to share the Gospel in Pictures)
From here we drove to Chikwawa Village. In talking with Pastor Mark from Malawi Africa he told me there has been an influx of MUSLIMS in Malawi since 1994, which at that time there were 72,000 Muslims. Today there are 5 million Muslims in Malawi. WE HAVE OUR WORK CUT OUT FOR US AS THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH. In Blantyre there are new MOSQUE’S ERRECTING.
So, my plan today at the Village was to train, equip and send all Christians to be ENDUED with the POWER of the HOLY SPIRIT.
Rayland Trisler started us off this AM with a message on the Gospel. Rayland LAID A WONDERFUL FOUNDATION for me to be able to draw the net when it would become my turn to speak later on in the day. He then called for a response and MANY came for prayer. Many were being healed of pain in their bodies. I hope to get a specific report of TRULY ALL THE LORD DID THIS DAY. Our team prayed for the Malawians as they came forward.
While praying my approach was to pray for ONE to be healed. Then have that very ONE that was healed TO PRAY for the NEXT person in need of healing. I instructed each one that they were to continue doing this in their village ONGOING. Those healed to pray for the healing of others. I probably coached 7-10 Malawians to pray for others in pain and each ONE was healed of their pain problem in their body.
Then Dr. Mike Walker came forward to speak. His role was to speak about “each one reaching one” with the ONE FOCUS.
We then broke for lunch. We started back up at 2 PM and at this time we met outside the church building under a few shade trees due to how hot 🥵 the temperature was even for the Malawians. This decision really worked better for my message since I was calling the Malawian people to become more aggressive with their FAITH by taking what they were learning outside the walls of the church.
My message was focused on making the person whole. I spoke on the word SOZO - which means SALVATION and means = SAVED - HEALED - DELIVERED. In my message I called up first those in need of eternal life SALVATION. There were 12 that came to stand and PROFESS CHRIST AS THEIR SAVIOR. Then I prayed for these 12 to be CLOTHED and ENDUED with RESURRECTION POWER.
Then I called for any in need of HEALING. The number was so many that I simply had them stand where they were. I DONT KNOW AN EXACT percentage but it appeared that MOST that were standing in need of healing were touched and healed by a show of lifting their hands to indicate they had been touched.
Then I called for any in need of deliverance. About 8 to 10 came forward. I prayed for them individually to be SET FREE and WHOLE of their bondage.
Dr. Mike Walker suggested I have them renounce any involvement with WITCHCRAFT. The interpreter and I went back and forth on this. He felt that I should allow them to come to me one on one to do this. I felt we were to have any and all stand to renounce WITCHCRAFT at once. Dr Mike also suggested that I lead the entire crowd in renouncing as a village any WITCHCRAFT involvement. THE ENTIRE GROUP STOOD AND I LED THEM TO RENOUNCE WITCHCRAFT FROM THEIR PAST AND THEN FOR THE WHOLE VILLAGE TO BE FREE OF WITCHCRAFT.
Then at the end I had ALL PASTORS come forward to be prayed over by our team to be clothed and endued with power. To receive BOLDNESS NECESSARY to advance the KINGDOM OF GOD; to receive any and all spiritual gifts necessary. Our team prayed for an IMPARTATION OF GIFTS to take place in their life from the Holy Spirit.
THIS MOMENT WAS A HOLY MOMENT. As the 20-30 PASTORS received from our team, they then in turn went to get one person each and pray the same prayer for that single person. Then we continued with this process until every single person outside had been prayed for. THIS MEMORY OF THE WHOLE GROUP PRAYING FERVENTLY FOR ONE ANOTHER WILL FOREVER BE ETCHED AND BURNED INTO MY MIND. This is what we need to sweep through AFRICA TO COMBAT ☪️ ISLAM.
Then at the end of this time Jimmy Eley taught the children briefly and had the children laughing as he danced before them and had them join him in his HAPPY DANCE.
