Praying Away the Spirits

Last entry, I wrote about how the Christian community near our house came and shared their experiences with Caiden’s family. Recently, a similar opportunity arose for them to share once more.

Let’s mother was very sick in the hospital. The hospital released her and she went to stay with Let. The whole extended family went to his house to spend time with Grandma.

Friday evening, our group gathered for vespers at his house. Our friends again shared how God had changed their lives through healing and protection from evil. Many of the stories were ones they had shared previously at our home, but there was a new story.

The prior week a woman in the village had been showing signs of demon possession. She wasn’t sleeping for days at a time and at one point had pounced on her own housechurchmother, attempting to strangle her. Our church members, including Caiden, went to her house, spending much of a night praying for her. Finally she was able to sleep. The next day she showed a lot of improvement. (She is now joining our group for worship.)

At the end of the vespers program, Let’s mother as well as his pregnant sister-in-law requested to have their Buddhist strings cut off their wrists. This was a major step as they are the most ”vulnerable” to the spirits (being very sick and also being pregnant). It was wonderful to see that even from their first experience hearing about God, they were willing to give God a chance.

I really enjoy being a part of and supporting the group near our house. They can connect to people in our village in ways I can’t. Its evident God is working through them to share His Good News.

If you’re not part of a Christian community, I encourage you to join one. You will be blessed!

Editor’s note: Adara and Caiden have now been ministering among the Tai Kadai for over five years. Your continued support makes their ministry possible. To make a one-time gift or becoming a sustaining supporter, go to give.afmonline.org
