Central India

There are little congregations all over the world that have been started by the efforts of a single Tape Boy going into the highways and byways, introducing people to the Elijah of Malachi 4.

The following is the first of a two-part article from an Indian brother's recent trip to the towns of Sehore, Khurai, and Lalithpur. His trip begins arriving by airplane into the capital city of Bhopal. From the airport, the first stop is a 25 mile drive to the city of Sehore.

Arrival and first stop, Sehore

I have arrived on the 22nd at 9:45 pm at Bhopal airport. From there 40 KM (25 miles) night journey to Sehore.

Here, one Hindu family accepted Christ while showing the Deep Calleth to the Deep video. His wife was sick. I prayed over her and she got well, so they accepted Christ as their personal Savior. Another sister come forward to know more about Elijah the prophet. She told me she was searching this for a long time, and she thought this man was John the Baptist.

Out of four baptisms, three were from one family and one was the wife of a Hindu priest. The priest was also present when she accepted Christ and baptized in His Name.

Summary of Sehore

  1. One Hindu family accepted Him as personal Savior.
  2. Four baptisms, out of which one was a Hindu priest’s wife.
  3. One of the locals had been searching for the Elijah of Malachi 4 for a long time.
  4. One tape ministry church started at this place. Bro. Mark S Sharma will be playing the tapes for the people.



In the morning, I started at 04:15 am by car, along with this Bro. Mark S Sharma of Sehore, to another place called Khurai. This place is 225 KMs (140 miles) away from Sehore. We reached this place at 9:30 am, and started the first service at 11 am. In the first section, we introduced Malachi 4 and then showed Deep Calleth to the Deep video.

Second service from 3:00 to 5:00 pm, we introduced serpent seed and baptism in the Name of our Lord. While at the pulpit speaking, 16 believers came forward to take baptism, out of which 15 took had no clothes to change. These people traveled for hours to reach this place for the first time without knowing there would be a baptism in the Name of our Lord. In the past, almost all of them had been baptized in titles of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

One man was fixed with an artificial material in his thigh by doctors and unable to fold his knees, and sat on the chair until the altar call. At the pulpit calling, he come forward to take baptism. At that moment his knee folded normally though with some problem, but after the water baptism he was healed miraculously and got filled with the Holy Ghost.

Around 40 people gathered in this place for the meeting. Some were not able to take baptism, and seeing the works of the Holy Ghost, they asked when they would get the next chance. If He permits, we will visit this area in March 2018.

Summary of Khurai

  1. Fifteen people took water baptism.
  2. One man was healed miraculously by His grace.
  3. Lots of people amazed by seeing His mighty power poured out amongst the believers and after the baptismal service some of them cried about 1 – 1½ hours by the love and compassion of Lord. It was so high nobody can express with words.
  4. Those who received Holy Ghost asked to play tapes in their local places. Because these people are gathered from different places, they can’t come on Sundays to Khurai. We asked two brothers of two different locations to gather the believers together on Sundays and to play the tapes.

Not by might, nor by power by my Spirit, saith the Lord. He is the same yesterday, today and forever.


We will continue Brother John’s journey to his last stop in tomorrow's post.
