June 1999 : Mauritius
Returned from the Republic of Mauritius, “”Key to the Indian Ocean”” what a beautiful nation. The brothers and sisters of the church in Mauritus were so gracious and loving; you could see the love of God in their lives. The Grace and Mercy of the Lord was evident as I began to preach in local fellowships and three day crusade meeting. The Good News is the power of God unto Salvation. Salvation being a complete transforming of the person, body, soul, and spirit. There were many who received Jesus and confessed Him before people. One man, a wealthy Hindu, made this commitment and it will more than likely cost him a great deal, but he chose to follow Jesus. There where miracles of healing: a woman over 60 years born deaf began to hear instantly and clearly as the Lord touched her. A young baby in the hospital with severe stomach problems that were untreatable was wonderfully healed and sent home. There was a man that was hospitalized due to a major motorcycle accident that left him with a leg broken in four places. He had spent two months in the hospital and was not given a very good report of him walking again. The prayer of faith was made and the man was home the next day. Jesus is alive and the same. The most exciting of all was that there were 93 different pastors, some representing 2-12 churches, who came together for the first time to pray together for the winning of their nation. From Mariutius I was invited to extend my stay in the Indian Ocean and traveled by ferry to Reunion Island. This wonderful Island welcomed me and as the meetings went the power of God came in every meeting. The demons left people screaming, the oppressed were set free, the sick were healed and there were many more added to the kingdom of God. God is directing ELIJAH MINISTRIES to nations of the earth that are beginning to open up for this present work of the Lord. Favor has been granted to ELIJAH MINISTRIES to speak the power of the Gospel with boldness simplicity and LOVE.
