In the Handeni District there is a witch doctor who is very well known for her powers. She works miracles through the power of the devil. She claims the power to kill anyone she likes; she can create problems for those around her. Many people are afraid of her because of her popularity and witchcraft skills.
Sounds of beating drums, raised voices, and strange noises emanate from her house every night. However, whenever we walk by the house, silence reigns. It is obvious the power of God rules over the devil. Even witch doctors respect the presence of the Lord. Devils tremble in the company of godly men and women.
One evening my friend and her husband invited my husband, a pastor, and me to visit the witch doctor. As we neared the house, we could hear drums beating and voices singing. Once the members of the household saw us the noise stopped. As we walked closer to the house, we earnestly prayed for ourselves and my husband.
The witch doctor warmly welcomed us, We began singing church hymns very loudly. After two songs, my husband said a prayer. He gave a scripture reading and requested us to kneel down for special prayers foe the family members. Surprisingly all the members of the family, including the witch doctor, knelt along with us.
The Spirit of God was seen rotating in that little hut. I felt the mighty hand of the Lord descending from above and touching each one of us. The Spirit of God was there. After the season of prayer, we left, praising God for the Mighty Power we had just witnessed.
The next day, the children of the family told us that after our departure they had continued meditating on the power of the HolySpirit.
We who are out witnessing in those areas where the light of the Gospel has not reached many souls need your prayers. Pray for the family who lives in that small hut. They have witnessed the power of God, yet they still hesitate to follow Christ. Witchcraft is their business and they depend on it. Please pray that the Holy Spirit will continue to work on their hearts and we can meet them in heaven.
