My church Mosaik is a very small church, but we love missions! Together with the missions organization Touching Asia and local churches, we organised a youth conference in Odisha, India, October 23-25. My dear friends Joel Gabrielsson and Steve Ferris were speakers. When the conference was over, they told us that it had been completely amazing. Here are som pictures taken by Steve, as well as a letter from Joel:
“The three days were absolutely astounding and I am still amazed at the mercy of God and his goodness! Steve and I taught three days of meetings focused on God’s Love and Discipleship and together with the leaders and all the youth we worshiped and danced and praised Jesus and met his goodness.
“Even in the first meetings God started moving powerfully! Literally half the group who came forward for prayer got knocked of their feet under God’s power. People were filled, crying out to God, dedicating their lives to him. Such a presence of God!
“Second and third day it just grew. I spoke on the Holy Spirit in the evening and God came with his amazing glory. People were filled, shaking, falling, prophecying, speaking in tongues, saw visions, dreams. Testimonies of healing even as the preaching was going on. so crazy.
The third day was the craziest. The focus during the day was spreading the kingdom and healing and we gave time for “activation” and for people to pray for each other.As they did people were healed and amazed that God was using them to heal!! In the evening I spoke on Jesus as the healer, and God came with his amazing presence! Pentecost and Holy Chaos!
“Many were healed of pains, sicknesses, conditions and emotional stuff, and blasted by God and we continued into the night. A suicidial girl was set free. a boy was delivered of demonic oppression! Many testimonies of what God did! God is moving over the youth in Orissa for revival! We just marvelled at God’s mercy towards us all and how deeply he loves us!!”
Amazing pictures, right? God is on the move in Odisha! If you would like to support Touching Asia, go here. And please pray for the protection and strength of the Indian revivalists.
