Touching The Lepers


There are many souls stricken with leprosy and their suffering is intensified by being outcasts.. India, Indonesia, and Brazil have the highest rate of leprosy. It has been estimated that three million people are effected by this disease, leaving them permanently debilitated and disfigured.

In the Holy Bible there are stories of lepers who faced the same hardship. They were shunned in public and would isolate themselves from society. They would not be hired to support themselves or their family, and survived through alms from strangers.

When among society, they were required by law to yell out “I’m a leper”. This was to warn not to go near them. Lepers were judged by many who said you were cursed, or being punished for your sins.

Jesus of Nazareth was known for His love and kindness. He had compassion for the sick, and healed them.

Matthew 8: 1-4
Jesus Cleanses The Leper

When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him. And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.” Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed. And Jesus said to him, “See that you tell no one; but go your way, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”

Luke 17:11-19
Ten Lepers Cleansed

Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off. And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!”  So when He saw them, He said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed.  And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan. So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine?  Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”  All Jesus wanted in return for their healing, was to believe and be thankful.

There are many amazing miracles that Jesus performed in the Bible, and this same healing power is available still today,through faith and prayer. The love of Jesus sends men and woman to help those who are suffering.

Baptized - Yatham

Sharing the Gospel in India and winning souls to Jesus Christ.. If you do not believe in God, you can still enjoy the good news! 

I would like to share with you testimonies of the mission outreach in India. I have been trying to work with Pastor Yatham for several years in attempt to broaden his boarders with supply’s. Yatham has been working on the mission field many years through the Rural Mobil Gospel Mission. He also volunteers distributing medical supply’s when possible.

Telugu Bibles are greatly needed and I was blessed to locate sources online, since shipping from the U.S. is very expensive. buying from India allows Bibles to be delivered with low-cost shipping! If you attend a Church who is able to arrange bake sales, or foreign mission funding programs, please keep Pastor Yatham Jeevaratnam in mind. Please add him to your prayer list for protection and provision, as he and the team have faced opposition by Hindus. After a Gospel crusade, he and the team were blindfolded, and beaten. The men forced them into a room were they were locked in, and informed they would be killed the next day. Prayer through the night was answered, and the men decided to let them go with a warning.

I can do little myself, but the more Bibles, and tracts that these workers can get in hand means many souls saved! If you would like to donate to the effort, please do so at Pennies For Dreams.. and type Bibles in the PayPal message box. Include your email if you would like proof of purchase. I am also attempting to send the team a mobile voice system, since theirs has broken down, this is used for the gatherings they conduct. Amazon India has been a blessing used for shipping gifts and Bibles to Pastor Yatham, as well as Christian Books India. Amen!

My village is well-known in the area because of the witchcraft practiced here. After attending rural mobile gospel meeting, those of us who wanted to surrender to Jesus were asked to step forward. As the team leader led us in prayer, I fell to the ground and started screaming. They prayed for me, and the evil spirits came out of me. I have been delivered.
I had seen sorcerers and witch doctors, but nothing cured me. My family believed Jesus Christ could heal me, so they brought me to attending rural mobile gospel meeting. I accepted Christ and was prayed for, and God miraculously delivered me.
Many people in the area hated me because of what I was doing. After attending rural mobile gospel meeting, I decided to bring out all the items I had used as a witch, and prayed with team members as we burned the items. I have repented and received Jesus as my personal Savior. Those in my village saw what I did and thanked Jesus for it.
I was a dancer for many years. This dance is performed by those who are possessed by demons in order to calm them. I would do other unthinkable things while dancing to calm them. I came to attending rural mobile gospel meeting, and decided to give my life to Christ. I am scared the demons may come back and make me sick again, but my decision is final.

My heart was stirred said attendee. When I went to the doctor for my stomach pain, he was unable to help me. Near my home, a meeting was organized to show the Rural Mobil Gospel Preaching Crusades, so I took my large family to see it. When I heard about Jesus tell His followers to let the children come to Him, and Heaven belongs to them, I knew this was beautiful truth that my family and I needed. It was then I prayed to God and asked Him to please heal me. Jesus did a miracle in my life and healed me! My whole family now trusts Christ for salvation. Please pray for us. Thank you.

Babu was immediately healed. While in a village bazaar, inviting people to the Rural Mobil Gospel Preaching Crusades, we met 45-year-old Babu. He suffered for 26 years with epilepsy. There were about 20 people gathered around, when he asked if we could help him. We prayed for him and asked them all to hard the Rural Mobil Gospel Preaching Crusades the next day in Babu ‘s village. The next day on the way to the meeting, the bus we were on lost control and hit a wall. Thanks to God, no one was injured. When we finally arrived, after walking the rest of the way, 65 people gathered to heard the Rural Mobil Gospel Preaching Crusades. We saw Babu and learned he was healed. Many in his village came to know the Lord. This village has become a strong preaching point. We are continuing discipleship and mentoring many in this area gave new bible.
