Jesus is the answer for our world!
We have recently returned from a true missions adventure in Bangladesh. During the two weeks we preached to thousands of unreached Hindus and Muslims, we saw about 5 200 precious souls receive salvation in Jesus Christ. Hundreds experienced healings to their bodies when Jesus confirmed his word. Dear friend, we want to say a big thank you four your love, prayers and support that made this possible.

Beyond the two Gospel Festivals we held in two unreached villages we also conducted a Fire conference, did daily outreach with the team, gave out our book, The Final Lap, to all the leaders and all the new believers received our newly printed follow up booklet ”Jesus Miracle Life in You”. Please read the exciting report below by Beatrice Schoultz.
“Jesus, he is the answer to our world today.” This phrase from André Crouch’s well-known song echoed within me after the two gospel festivals we held in the unreached villages in Bangladesh. No experience in the world can be measured with the sweetness of seeing people who just realized that Jesus is the answer to their lifelong longing, rushing toward the platform to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior. To see their tears and their raised hands to God and to hear their voices as they confess Jesus as their Lord is unmatched.
People poured out hundreds of every evening to receive Jesus! In both Novogram and Sundali we saw the same miracle happen. We came to two different Hindu towns, the first without any known Christians and the other with only one family of Christians, where they lived their lives in the belief that everything was well with them. As you can go without food without actually feeling hungry until you feel the smell and see a freshly grilled steak and realize that it is exactly what you longed for and need, it was the same with these people when the gospel was preached to them. We saw a hunger brought to life when they heard about Jesus and we saw Jesus being the answer for them.
We also saw how Jesus was the answer for those who were sick and tormented in their bodies. Each night we heard testimonies how Jesus had immediately removed pains, restored vision to their eyes and hearing to their ears, healed heart problems, breathing difficulties and much more! I cannot forget a woman who pulled me to her side when we as a team were downstairs and prayed for the sick one evening. Many wanted my attention, but she did not give up. I looked at her and she shone with joy! The interpreter told me hat she had been completely healed in her back! Jesus had become the answer for her.
When we did our daytime outreach, we also saw how Jesus saved and healed the people we met. In a courtyard between some houses we gathered a group of people. They did not really have time, they said they needed to work but could listen to us for a few minutes. When we began to talk about Jesus, all thoughts on working disappeared and was replaced by hunger for Jesus. Several of those who listened were saved and some were healed! Jesus became the answer to them!
At a couple of houses down by a river, we also reached people with the gospel and they received Jesus as their Lord and Savior. One man had pain in the waist and down in one leg. He had sought answers and healing from gurus in India without any improvement, but this day some simple Swedes came and told him about Jesus. He was both saved and healed from all pain. Jesus became the answer to him!
In the same place, there appeared a Muslim man who told him that he was looking for peace and needed to feel peace in his heart. After a simple gospel story told by our interpreter that true peace is only found in Jesus, the man received Jesus and felt the prince of peace in his heart. Jesus became the answer to him!
We also saw how Jesus, through our testimonies and our preaching, touched Muslim and Hindu children in a school. A little boy, maybe 7-8 years old, was so touched by God’s presence as we prayed for the sick that he was standing with lifted hands even after we stopped praying. He was healed in his foot. A dozen of the other children were also healed and the principal’s father-in-law, a Hindu priest, was both healed and saved! That day we prayed with almost all of the 60-70 children who were gathered to salvation in Jesus Christ. Jesus became the answer to them!
In addition to this we also had the privilege of being able to hand out a simple follow-up book in their own language. It was wonderful to see how the people opened the books and began to read directly, eager to get to know Jesus even more.
Jesus is really the answer for our whole world!
