After lunch the boys showed up for tutoring. Nahim, Golu, Vinod and Dharmendra came. Mom also tutored Mahima. Mahima is beginning to be able to read. It is always encouraging to see marked improvements in the abilities of the kids. The boys latest desire is to learn dance. So, I have promised to teach them. It should be fun.
Kalpana came over for Bible study. We studied from Genesis 1. We studied about the creative power of God’s word. With His word He created the Heavens and the Earth. The word of God is full of power. Many times we fail to realize and utilize the power of God’s word. What I love about Kalpana is her pure faith. She prays for the big things and the little things, expecting God to answer. And He does.
Then in the evening Mom and I went to Delhi. In the evening, as we were arriving for the meeting, the lady with cancer called again for prayer. She was pain free! She said she hadn’t called earlier because she had been sleeping. I don’t think she normally get sleep during the day because of the pain. She sounded very happy. We prayed that the pain would not return.
Pastor Ramesh had arranged a meeting for us in a place called Pratap Nagar. It was a small meeting, with about 10-15 people in attendance. But, the Lord moved and filled many with His Holy Spirit. For some it was their first time coming to a Christian meeting, but they left filled with the power of God. One young boy, Lucky, sticks out in my mind. It was amazing to see the devotion on his face as the Lord filled him with the Holy Spirit. He was about 10-12 years old. He was just crying and praising God in tongues. A man with severe acidity felt the pain and burning sensation leave his stomach. Another man with a back problem felt the pain completely leave as we prayed.
At night, as we were returning home, the lady with cancer called again. She was still pain free! She couldn’t express her happiness. She said she had not felt so good in a long long time. She could hardly believe she was pain free. We prayed that the pain would never come back. Her husband also had us pray for pain in his neck and shoulder. He was instantly healed too. Praise God! Please continue to pray with us that the cancer will completely disappear from her body.
