Dear Ministry Partners,
It is with great joy that I write this update today. I just returned from the nation of Pakistan where we conducted our second major Gospel Crusade of the year and 28,121 people received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior! Hallelujah! Jesus is saving souls in Pakistan! It was absolutely amazing to see so many people come forward for salvation. From the very first night, the majority of the crowd responded to the Gospel. Each night after that, the crowd grew significantly and thousands responded each night to make Jesus Christ their Lord and Savior. It was absolutely amazing!
The final night, God poured out His Spirit. After the altar call for salvation, I prayed for the people to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit and thousands of people received the infilling of the Holy Spirit. One young man on our security team came up to me after the meeting and was so excited. He was attending the crusade to preform security detail, but God had other plans for him. He said, “When you were preaching, I could feel God touching me and the hair on my arms was standing up on end. When you asked everyone if they wanted to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, I asked Jesus to save me. Then, you prayed for the baptism of the Holy Spirit and I received the Holy Spirit also!” Praise God! Jesus is the Savior, Healer and Baptizer of the Holy Spirit.
After praying for the baptism of the Holy Spirit, I prayed for the sick and Jesus did mighty miracles. Below is a list of just some of the healing testimonies that people gave from the stage on the final night:
- A boy’s arm was healed after bring crushed by a load at work, he was completely healed and was able to do push-ups without any pain at all for the first time.
- One woman was carried to the meeting because she was unable to walk, after the prayer for the sick, the Lord touched her and she stood up and began walking for the first time in 15 years!
- A woman said, “I received so many miracles.” “My eyes were healed and now I can see clearly, my legs were healed and all the pain in my stomach was healed.”
- A woman healed of cataracts in her eyes and she could now see clearly for the first time in two years
- Man’s hand was completely healed after having the bones in his finger fractured and was totally healed of all the pain after two years.
- A growth the size of a golf ball left a young girls finger
- A woman suffering from severe back pain for 15-16 years was healed
- A woman had kidney pain from stones in her kidney and brought the doctors report stating she had the kidney stones in her stomach, after prayer, she was completely healed
Hallelujah! Now that the crusade has concluded, our team is diligently working with the local pastors to follow-up on every new believer to make sure they have a church to attend. There are always people who live in villages where there are no churches and many of them will live a secret Christian life for fear that their new found faith in Christ could jeopardize their lives. Our team will follow-up with these new believers and a church will be planted in that village that will create security and community for the new believers and disciples will be made. It’s not enough to just preach the Gospel and have no follow-up. We’re here to make disciples of Jesus Christ.
Thank you so much for sending us to this nation to preach the Gospel. The harvest truly is ripe and the laborers are few. Please continue to pray for us to labor in these regions and to raise up other evangelists who will also reach the lost with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

God bless you,
