Back from Sumatra, Indonesia and an outreach with the Batak Toba people. During this first outreach over 60 people were trained (30 were local pastors). A Crusade and Mass Deliverance was conducted with many “confessing faith” in Christ, over 40 people being healed (including deaf and dumb, brain injuri...es, strokes, angina, tumors and many knee, hip and back injuries) and over 30 people delivered... from demons (including many violent demons of witchcraft, martial arts, trauma, violence and fear) as well as dozens of other demons.
170 years ago the Batak Toba people were delivered from Folk Islam after they killed and cannibalized the first two missionaries who came to them, another bold missionary came and with signs and wonders, convinced the Batak that Jesus was real and the true God. As Christians in a Muslim land and they have suffered for their faith and many have become “lukewarm” and forgotten that their God is a God of power. We have been able to equip them and reintroduce them to the supernatural nature of biblical Christianity. To God be the Glory! May they catch fire again and change their land! MORE SOON

We received word earlier from brother Michael Millers wife Colleen that Michael had been sick and requested prayer... Now we have this update from Carl Henderson's facebook page. No word yet about Pastor Jozef.
CALL TO PRAYER
I have wonderful reports to share from Medan, Indonesia including demoniacs in chains who were delivered, etc., etc. These reports will be coming in the next few days. Today we traveled from Medan to Jakarta and from Jakarta to Borneo. Borneo is beautiful, but I ate some bad chicken in Jakarta and was ...plagued with sickness, stomach pain, high-velocity vomiting and diarrhea. I am weak and very sick; PLEASE PRAY for me as our team begins teaching in the morning. Lord willing, I want to be able to do my part. I came all this ways to teach and preach, not to lay in bed sick.
PS. I saw my first snake in Borneo, on one of my mad rushes from the roadway into the jungle to relieve myself. He quickly fled, I was in no mood to entertain him and he was apparently more afraid of me than I was of him.

Update from Carl;
March 14, 2012, Medan, Indonesia,..
During the crusade, which was led by Michael Miller, over 250 people came, later many people confessed faith in Christ, and during the healing aspect of the crusade many people were healed and many demons were manifest with vomiting, shrikes, growling and convulsions, etc. Many students from a deaf and dumb school were brought for healing and many deaf ears were opened and children who had never spoken before had their tongues freed and spoke for the first time. We also had, two uncontrollably demonized people, who were brought in chains to the conference, and one was set free from his demons by Pastor Joseph.
By the grace of God, I was used to heal over 23 people,.. Including, four deaf female student, who had their ears opened and were healed and a 5-year old boy who had never spoken before.
This boy’s healing was one of the most joyous events for me, as his parents wept great tears of joy as the boy spoke for the first time. His first words were “Jesus” and his second words were “Jesus is Lord” (all in Indonesian). We were able to take him to the podium and with many people watching he spoke and called out Jesus name again and again.
Other miracles, included many back and hip injuries, many head, neck, shoulder pains and other injuries. I also had several people brought to me with “slow minds” sort of a mild retardation and I could not tell if they were healed or not because of the language difficulties and the use of interpreters, etc,.. However, one father came running back about 15 minutes after we had tried to heal his son and he was crying and laughing and he grabbed my hand and shook it hard, for a long time and explained that his son “was normal” and that his mind was healed now. He described it as his son being made well “in his mind.”
March 15, 2012,
On the second day in Medan during the Mass Deliverance, Pastor Josef led 34 people in a confession of faith in Jesus Christ. One of those confessing faith in Christ was a Muslim woman wearing a head scarf and several other Muslim males. Four demoniacs came to the Deliverance wearing chains and three were set free (one did not want his demons to go and refused to be set free). Many people manifested powerful and stubborn demons of Islam and one boy who was delivered repeatedly shouted “Allah Akbar” (The Muslim “god is great”) until he was delivered of many spirits of Islam. Others shrieked yelled and fell to the ground manifesting demons.
Pastor Joseph and Michael Miller went through the crowd and conducted numerous one-on-one deliverances in a crowd of over 300 people. Many demons of rejection, un-forgiveness, and witchcraft were cast out of at least 100 people, who showed obvious signs of radical manifestations of powerful demons.
In addition, to the many obvious deliverances, during this time many people were brought to me for healing. One old woman could not stand but she was soon jumping, dancing and stomping the ground when her leg and hip were healed. One boy with a leg injury that left one leg crippled was soon running and squatting with his bad leg and his heart pain had stopped. Others with heart angina (pain) were healed, and others with nasal polyps, sinus infections, asthma and lung pain, were healed. Many back, shoulder, neck, headaches, blurry vision and hips were healed. Over 25 people were healed in my ministry and many more by Pastor Josef and Michael Miller.
The Mass Deliverance started at 7pm and finished after midnight with the three of us and our Indonesian interpreter Chandra, going back to the hotel at 12:45am, exhausted. In less than four hours we were back on the Road, to the airport, Jakarta, and Borneo.
