The next stop was at the home of a young man - JAWADUZIBERU - he was wearing a larger bone necklace. Pastor Gracious told him the bone had a dark meaning behind it. He also had stomach pain. We prayed for his pain to leave. He was healed and then professed Christ and renounced witchcraft and threw the necklace away. He then renounced alcohol and cigarettes.
UPDATE RECEIVED TODAY FOR JAWADUZIBERU - “He thank God for wonderful healing. Since the day we prayed to him, no desires of alcohol and cigarettes. No more stomach problem”
SALVATION #3 MUSLIM
As we were leaving the home of JAWADUZIBERU we saw 2 men walking towards us. I asked Pastor if we should talk to them. He said he thought they were from a village further away. I said let’s invite them to the Marriage Conference we were hosting later that day. As it turned out RAFAEL and KESSIM were both Muslim. They allowed me to pray for them and after we prayed, we invited them to the seminar. Then later that day he attended. To my surprise RAFAEL came for prayer after the marriage seminar- He confessed his struggles with Alcohol and Cigarette use. A Malawian Pastor and I led him in a prayer to profess Christ. We then had him renounce a SPIRIT OF BONDAGE - specifically to Alcohol and cigarettes - then I prayed for him to be endued and clothed with Resurrection power. We then led him to renounce Islam since we were renouncing a spirit of bondage.
Later the next 2 days he came back to see me. The next day I was leading a prayer session with Dr David Wheeler - and could not see him. So, pastor Gracious and Bruce Siegmund prayed for his grandmother to be able to be strengthened. She was immediately better. The next day I was able to meet with RAFAEL and he wanted me to know that he has lost all desire to drink or smoke. So, RAFAEL came Sunday morning and I was asked to preach 5 min before time by Pastor Gracious. Bruce said he didn’t even know I would be preaching. But I made RAFAEL the central illustration of my msg - of Gods Relentless love of him to align our paths.
SALVATION #4 and #5
The next family we visited was a WIDOW named MARGARET who was a younger lady. She has 4 children that range from age 20 down.
We led MARGARET to Christ and then she renounced witchcraft participation.
HER SON JOHN age 17 also prayed to receive CHRIST.
SALVATION #6 and #7
2 Young men Alexander and Gracious - received Christ while many children stood around to watch. We were not in a home but standing in the village. There May have been aboutv20 children watching.
On our way back to our base - we stopped to say hello to Chief Kapanga #3. We asked if we could pray for him. He said he had a ringing noise in his ears. We prayed. The next day Jerry Yarborough joined us on our going out. When we went to the Chiefs home to follow up, we ended up finding out that his ear had improved. So, I asked Jerry to
Pray for him this time. We found out the next day his ears were no longer ringing.
Before reaching mission base we also prayed for Chief Kapanga # 2 shingles to be healed. Today (4 days later) Pastor Gracious says “My grandmother is showing great improvement - she come with atesmony this morning. Before she was not able to go to the garden but yesterday afternoon, she manages to do work.”
