Total Transformation

In a village inhabited by over 100 families, team members had been conducting prayer walks and sharing the gospel for 5 years, but the villagers were totally resistant to the gospel. That would soon change when a girl from there was referred by the district administration and admitted to a children’s hostel. After coming to the hostel, the girl accepted the Lord, and she requested the team to pray for her village and visit the houses. Two brothers who had completed their studies in a Bible school visited the community for practical training. They were invited to pray for a man who was paralysed, the brother of the village chief. The Lord healed the paralysed man immediately!

This incident opened the eyes of the village chief. He was a strong supporter of another religious group, but after this miraculous healing, he accepted the Lord. The moment the chief accepted the Lord, he became very enthusiastic and wanted to share the gospel with the entire village. He also requested to start worship in the community right away. A foundation stone was laid for a place of worship, and construction was started that same night. Within a week’s time the construction was completed. Since then, regular worship is being conducted in the village and the whole village attends the worship meeting.

The people were filled with such a joy and the elder brother of the chief was so impressed that he volunteered to donate a plot for construction of a larger church building to accommodate 500 people. The whole town participated in the dedication service, with over 500 people attending it. In addition, the entire community is delivered from alcohol, which had enslaved the people for generations! Today no alcohol is permitted to enter the village.

Within the short span of one year, the villagers visited other communities with the gospel, and the Lord established 12 new places as house churches. Many more people are being added to the Lord because of the transformation of this village!
