A member of our women's ministry team moved outside of the city to a nearby village. She and her husband decided to start a prayer group that would meet in the early evening under a thatched shelter. They invited their neighbors to attend. At one of their first meetings, our team member got up to lead the group in prayer. As she was praying, others who were there, noticed a snake enter and head straight for her. Everyone started to yell "snake, snake", but she just kept on praying, asking the Lord to protect her and show His power to her neighbors. She could feel the snake begin to encircle her leg, but she did not move. She just kept on praying. As she cried out to the Lord, the snake uncurled, dropped to the ground, and slithered out the way it had come!


Pray with us that this demonstration of faith in the power of Christ would transform this village and that the Lord Jesus would be glorified.Attached File  IMG_3915.jpg   100.89KB   0 downloads
