Then Shikha, Kalpna and I finished our Bible Study on sin and the atonement of sin provided by Jesus. While we were doing our Bible Study, four little boys from the same slum as the new kids showed up. But, they did not want to wait until the Bible Study was over, so they left. I think they had come for Gold Coins ) However, a couple of them promised to return. Let’s see if they come back or not.
On Tuesday we went to the slum in New Delhi again. As usual, we had a good time because the Lord was with us. Many children gathered as we began to sing and worship together. I taught them some new worship songs. A few kids are becoming regulars like Rekha and Gurjeet. Others are new. We normally do not take anything for the kids. But, this time we took packets of biscuits and handed them out. At first we thought we had enough packets for the number of kids who had gathered. But, as we began to hand out the packets, kids began to come from nowhere.
We prayed with the various ones with needs. Mom shared with the kids the story of Jesus’ feeding the five thousand. One elderly lady that we have been praying for came. She showed us her hands. She used to have huge knots one her knuckles due to arthritis (I assume). The knots are almost all gone. She had improved a lot. She had us pray for her again. Then mom went with her to her home, where he son is a paralytic, to pray for him. There mom shared our testimony with them. They said that where they are from about 90% of the villagers are Christian, although this family is Hindu. Mom shared with them about the Holy Spirit. The elderly lady prayed and was filled with the Holy Spirit.
I stayed behind and prayed for all of the other needs. Many people came and were healed of all sorts of pains. One teenage girl came to me for prayer two times, and each time the Lord healed her of her problems. Then she brought some friends for prayer who also were healed. Finally the girl mustered up the courage to tell me that she has epilepsy. I prayed for her and told her we would pray again next week. The children kept insisting that we sing the fun worship songs “just one more time.” I think we sang the songs, “just one more time” about five or six times.
Today, we went to a nearby city, Gurgaon, to pray with a lady who is suffering from extreme depression due to the loss of a loved one. Her cousin sister recently, unexpectedly passed away. She is having a hard time coming to terms with the loss and has begun to question the existence of God. We told her that although we can’t bring her cousin sister back, we can give her a comforter who will be with her and help her through this time of loss. We shared our testimony with her, as well as sharing about Jesus and the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Then we prayed and she received the Holy Spirit. We told her to give Jesus a chance for at least two weeks.
When we got home, I received a call from the neighbor who has the vision problem. He came over again for prayer. Again we prayed and the Lord continued the miracle in his eyes.
I am so exhausted (but in a good way). Do keep me in your prayers.

He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the beggar from the ash heap, to set them among the princes and make them inherit the throne of glory. I Samuel 2:8.
