Rev. March Machado's Missionary Trip
I was here in this village of Kylakor about ten years ago and delivered many from a type of witchcraft whereby they use powder in their opened flat hand and then blow in into the air to put a curse on someone. Sending an unclean spirit to do evil.
The place at the time only had a roof and after the three day campaign we water baptized 121 of them in a small pond. Now the work of God's people is carrying on with the building now complete. Kyiakor Ghana West Africa, Monday August 18th 2014.
My interpreter on the left is Pastor Eshwal, who took the two weeks course I taught on the Gifts of the Spirit in 2002 in a city a long drive from here.
I was teaching the congregation on faith, and was giving an example where Jesus spoke to the fig tree in Mark 11, using this pot of flowers as a fig tree.
After making a call for salvation I asked if anyone wanted to receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Well, almost the whole congregation came, we had our work cut out for us. Praise God with your prayers and support, and the faith of the people, the work was accomplished!
Here a formerly devil possessed young man was delivered. After casting out many devils, when the last one was cast out our Brother was finally at peace! He also received the baptism of the Holy Ghost! Praise the Lord!
Here Rev. Gyedu (who hosted the first Gifts of the Spirit course I ever taught in Ghana West Africa 2002) is encouraging the people to receive their healing by faith and gave testimonies of others who were healed by us in his church a few days before.
Wondering what this picture is about? There are children sleeping between the net covered chairs. Why you might say? So the mosquitoes will not get them and infect them with malaria.This was after the service in Kyiakor as we were waiting for our car to take us back to our rooms in a city about an hour away. Kyiakor Ghana West Africa, Monday August 18th 2014.
Goats in the classroom? Yes the animals here are everywhere. Goats, chickens, dogs, pigs and birds are roaming here and there. Today Tuesday afternoon we were leading the 29 students into their ministries. At times throughout the teaching and training, animals primarily goats had to be shewed out of the church.Well? God says He separates the sheep from the goats! Saltpond Ghana West Africa, Tuesday August 19th 2014
