Exclusive stories from the mission field
When a 17-year-old girl suffering from bleeding problems visited a church and asked for prayer, a worker prayed for her there and later at her home. She began attending services, slowly began to recover and has accepted Christ. In spite of COVID-19 restrictions, local missionaries conducted Sunday services at various church members’ homes and kept in touch with others by phone and social media.
A mother suffering for many years from leg pain and an ear disease began to be healed after she put her faith in Christ and called on Him in prayer. Local missionaries have been following up with her in home visits and by phone to build solid foundations for her faith.
A family suffering from various diseases for many years thought the gods had cursed them. Broken, hopeless and bitter, they turned away local missionaries who offered to pray for them. When workers returned, the family gradually heard them out and eventually allowed them to hold extended, fasting prayer in their home.
Even as COVID-19 took the lives of many loved ones, local missionaries brought the love of Christ to the poor in the way of food and other aid. Workers at one ministry supplied food rations to nearly 100 families over a six-month period, as well as to a children’s home and to widows.
