This Church is in a city near the capital city of Accra in the nation of Ghana in West Africa. Founded by one of his Graduate students of the “Gifts of the Spirit” class he presented many years ago.

A curse by witchcraft was put on this Sister in Christ that made her go insane. Brother Mark broke the curse and ministered to her brain.

This recipient had a fever, stomach pains and a desire to be married. She was healed by Brother Mark and was united in prayer to God for an honorable man to come into her life. The Sister with him in the black and white dress with no scarf on her head is Brother Mark’s interpreter, Sister Victoria.

/why you are wondering? Was he a leaper? No! Is he a diabetic? No! Than why? He was an occult fetish priest and another evil doer shot (exercised an evil spirit against him) him and the result of this cursed spirit was manifest by him losing body parts. 

He was ministered to in the name of Jesus Christ and the evil curse was then healing for his body. Praise God for the power we have in and by faith in the name of Jesus Christ!

Before going to Sunday morning service I was waiting for my ride to the church. So I was speaking to the host of the home, her daughter (not in the picture) and the young man on the stairs. I asked what church they attended and they said the name and I knew it was a denomination that believed in the baptism and spiritual gifts.

So I mentioned, oh they believe in speaking in tongues! The young man said he wanted to speak in tongues and I said come here I can help you. He received and was speaking in tongues and was amazed and was rejoicing. Then his sister said she does not believe in it. I was telling the young man that you can now pray in the spirit as you are doing school work and God will give you better understanding in your school work.

Then his sister said now I want to speak in tongues also. So she received then her mother came and received. Praise God all before I left for service. Thank you Lord. Sunday August 17th 2014. Saltpond Ghana West Africa.

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.

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!
