In November 2007 Leslie and I held Evangelistic Crusades, Pastors/Leaders Seminar and Ministry in churches in the Islamic Nation of Pakistan. Pastor Glen Johnson accompanied us and taught in the Pastors/Leaders Conference held in Gujranwala. As you may have heard from the news, the Government had declared an Emergency and the whole nation was under Marshall Law. However, our God rules the nations.
During Marshall Law all public meetings (public defined as more than 4 people) were banned, but God gave us special favor. Despite the ban on public assemblies, we had thousands of hungry Moslems attend our meetings each night and 15,000 attended the last night of our crusade in Guranwala. In total, 18,000 have received Chirst in our evangelistic meetings in Gujranwala and Lahore.
Jesus showed himself alive every night with incredible miracles. A girl that was born deaf and mute was healed to hear and speak. The next night another young girl was born mute and was able to say her first words. Several people who were blind received their sight and those with other eye problems were healed. Moslems testified that after hearing the gospel, demons which had constantly tormented them left their bodies. Other women testified of tumors dropping off their bodies. Several people who were crippled in various ways were also healed and could walk. A young woman testified about being healed the first night. Before being healed her heart valves were blocked and she could only walk a few steps without being exhausted. The next day she went to be examined and the Doctor delcared her valves being open and normal. The last night of the crusade she testified on this miracle then said, let me prove it to you. She took a running leap off the stage (about 7 feet off the ground) and stood jumping and leaping and praising God for her healing. We thank God for his wonderful healing power.
The Pastors we worked with in Gujranwala had never see a crowd or miracles like this before and say it was a historic event. The leadership training on Saturday was also successful with about 300Pastor/Leaders attending.
The night before we left, we had dinner with the Mulana who has the second largest mosque in Asia. We are planning to meet again both in Pakistan and America.
God Bless all of you who prayed and supported this work financially, there is an abundance of fruit (18,000 souls who received Christ) that we will share in the reward together when we stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
May the Lord Bless You All,
Howard & Leslie Ferris
