I just got back to my hotel room after an amazing crusade here in Dijkot, Pakistan. It was a night of salvation, healing and mass deliverance. It was glorious!
This afternoon as I was praying and preparing for my message, I heard a loud commotion in the street outside my hotel room. Chanting and yelling filled the air as a mass protest assembled not even one block away from my hotel room. It was yet another religious protest in the streets from a sect of the main religion here. It seems they are always mad and protesting about something. Sadly it’s become common to me here, but it’s a good reminder of how desperately the gospel needs to be preached in this place.
A.W. Tozer once said, “If man had his way, the plan of redemption would be an endless and bloody conflict. In reality, salvation was bought not by Jesus’ fist, but by His nail-pierced hands; not by muscle but by love; not by vengeance but by forgiveness…”. This statement is played out in reality every time I come here, but it makes tears come to my eyes just to think about how close they are to hearing the gospel and having Jesus change their lives. This propels me to continue to come here and preach the gospel. Without Jesus, we are all desperately wicked and hurtful people. May the Lord continue to allow us to come here for many years to come!
We got to the crusade site early tonight and it was amazing to see the field fill up from front to back as we sat there. The temperature in this city today was 120 degrees and it didn’t stop the mass crowds of people from showing up. People just kept coming all night long! Even as I was preaching at 10 p.m. people were still coming onto the field by the hundreds and thousands. It was amazing to see!
I preached a crystal clear gospel message that I hoped would really connect with people from the local religion here. The result was phenomenal! It looked from the stage as though over 80% of the crowd stood to their feet when I made the call for salvation. There were even people on the road nearby who received Christ tonight, even though they couldn’t get onto the field. Praise God!
The location we picked for the crusade tonight was also very close to a radical training center for the local religion here. In fact, our loud speakers could easily be heard at the training center and when we left, we saw many of the people from that center standing in the road listening to the meeting. Praise God! Heaven only knows what impact this crusade has made in some of their lives.
After preaching the gospel, I prayed for the sick and Jesus did some amazing miracles. As soon as I started praying, I could hear shrieking all over the field as many demon possessed people started getting set free. Some people get scared when I talk about these things, but this was a major part of Jesus’ ministry and He gave us power and authority over the enemy to set the captives free. Praise God!
After the prayer for the sick, many came forward to testify of how they got delivered tonight of evil spirits. Many testified of being miraculously healed also. Here are a few of the many healing testimonies from tonight:
A man who couldn’t see clearly was completely healed.
A boy and his mother were both healed of tumors, larger than the size of a golf ball.
A woman who couldn’t walk without pain in her legs was healed and could walk pain free.
A young man who had a fractured knee from an accident was healed and could walk pain free.
Many other people testified of being healed of tumors also.
A young girl who had lost the ability to hear for the last two months got healed and could hear me say Jesus in her local language.
A mute man started speaking for the first time in his life tonight. He looked to be about 30 years old or so.
And on our way home, a pastor called to tell us that a young crippled boy who was carried to the crusade started walking for the first time tonight.
Thank you so much for praying for us and standing with us financially to bring the reality of Jesus to the people here. Together we are fulfilling the Great Commission one soul at a time and one day we will see a multitude of people in heaven as a result of these crusades, and because of your financial investment.

Sunday morning I’ll be preaching at a local church here and then in the evening we’ll be doing a healing service at a local church here as well. Please continue to pray for us and for our meetings.
God bless you,
Evangelist Chris Mikkelson
