TESTIMONY OF JOHN

JOHN S suffered for two years with problems in his legs. He went to the witch doctors to seek help but he did not find it. He then went to the doctors at the local hospital but still he was not helped.

One day when the Isoka SOWERS Team went out for an open air meeting, John and his brother were passing by and they stopped and heard the Gospel. John was the first to go forward and he gave his life to the Lord.

After counselling him, John told them he had a problem with his legs. They followed him up and prayed for him. The Lord healed him. John is now asking to do Level 1. The SOWERS Programme is helping many to caome to Jesus. Through John's healing his wife has also found the Lord. Praise be to God.

MANY HUNDREDS TURN TO THE LORD

VISITATION AT A POLICE COMPOUND

We met Mr Chewe's wife when we had a door to door visitation in the police compound in Northern Zambia. She and all her family went regularly to church where she sang in the choir. I went through with her 'The Big Question' counselling booklet and she was amazed and said she had never heard the Gospel preached like this. Her Mother and her Sister were there too and they all gave their lives to Jesus.

It was an amazing time at the Police Camp where we had thought it would be difficule to speak to them. This was not the case as we have seen 22 men and women in uniform give their lives to the Lord by Sowers sharing the counselling booklet with them.
