ASSAM, INDIA : — Gospel for Asia missionary Monual was amazed as he watched God answer his prayer. It took eight months—eight months and many nights of anguished prayers to God for a people he desperately yearned to tell of Jesus’ love.
The people of this village were devoted to the rituals and traditions of their animist (spirit worship) religion. They had refused to listen to Monual, and threatened him with severe consequences if he continued ministry there.

Although their opposition saddened Monual, God gave him strength to continue reaching out. Monual would often fall to his knees, earnestly seeking the Lord for these people’s salvation. Then, God began to answer these prayers in a powerful way: People started listening to what Monual had to say. The village leader actually welcomed Monual, and asked if he would pray for his seriously ill son.
Glad for the opportunity, Monual immediately went and prayed for the child—and the Lord healed him! The healing gave Monual an opportunity to share the Gospel in the village. Now people are willing to listen. They are no longer threatening to hurt Monual.
Monual asks for prayer that the Lord will draw the hearts of the men, women and children in this animist village to Himself. And pray that the Lord will watch over Monual and bless his ministry.
