Freedom to the Captives

Last August, we held an outreach in an unreached village among the Mundari tribe. There was a man named Konga who came to the meeting. That man was known as a "mad man" who wandered the village. He was blind, often without clothes and out of his mind. And the whole village knew about him.

To us he was a blind man who needed healing. Our team began praying for his eyes as well as to discern his demonized state. His sight returned incrementally as we prayed. We continued to speak forth healing and command the deaf/dumb spirit to go.

The man stayed in our campground through the night as God ministered healing and deliverance to him. When we left the village, he was still going through deliverance. So, we continued praying for Konga, but didn't know what happened with him after we left.

Last week, we heard the news that he is healed and completely delivered in his right mind! Not only that, but the entire village gathered after they saw him delivered. The chief said, "If God can free this man, we know He is the real God, and we must respond to Him."

The entire village took action and destroyed their in-home stills where many families brewed local alcohol. Alcoholism has been a common stronghold in that area. One of our church planters is raising up a church in this village, and we look forward to sending our leaders there to continue to disciple this precious man now set free by the power of Jesus as well as the people of the area! Thank you Jesus for setting the captives free!
