Door to door sharing:

- The Headmaster of the nearby primary school closed the school early to allow teachers and pupils to hear the gospel and permitted us to use the football field.
- Some church leaders from other nearby churches defied orders to cooperate with the local hosting church to make our work fairly comfortable.
A certain woman came forth to be prayed for with her 12 year-old son. She said her husband started making money using powers from the dark side. Whenever he gives her money for managing the home, she only sees his face on the money. At times a bee buzzes near her ear and she begins to pass out. Even her son nearly died because he sacrificed him to gain more wealth. As soon as a team member began to pray for her, tiny as as she was, she became violent and kept on throwing strong punches. After a while, the Lord reigned over the demons and she was set free.
One young adult, Charity, asked to be prayed for because she was afraid that she was experiences curses from her relatives for run off with a man who has not paid her bride price. Her seven month old pregnancy mysteriously disappeared weeks before MET reached there. She was scared that it was as a result of the curse. She was asked if she was born-again, she answered in the negative. After explaining to her the need to let Jesus in her life, she agreed. While praying, she said;
“Satan I refuse you and all your ways. I now belong to Jesus.”
Demons manifested in her and later departed from her because indeed she was now for Jesus.
Jessica, in her late thirties, said she has a constant headache that would not go away and that some times for no reason at all she would feel dizzy. She also said her children were always sick. Realizing her situation was demonic, she was asked to surrender to the Lordship of the Savior. She thus asked the Lord to take over her life. Demons then violently threw her down as they left because Jesus had taken residence in Jessica.
