The leader of the outreach team returned later that night with the news that they had been attacked by some sort of demonic force, and one of them had been – literally – pushed off a cliff and killed – then healed by the Power of God.
We split further, with one team going back to help our injured team mate, one team returning to town to find someone to get him to a hospital, and a third team – including myself – remaining in the village to continue our ministry there.
The immediate rescue team returned late the next afternoon – while the city team didn’t return until two days later. Those of us in the village waited anxiously for news of the injured man, praying, ministering, and surviving until we could be re-united again.
But now, we’re together once more. It is late afternoon and we must be ready to minister – yet again – in church tonight. We need to come together closer than we’ve ever been to prepare ourselves for the Power of God to work in us and through us.
We gather the chairs that have been provided for us by the natives of the village into a circle in the sand outside the front of the church. The oppressive heat bears down on us – almost like a palpable attack trying to lower our spirits. The enemy had tried many times to force us to give up, yet we press on – and this time will be no different.
One of the guys pulls a guitar out of the duct tape-covered case it had been hauled up in on the back of a donkey and strums a chord. The music reaches deep into our hearts, reviving something that had been hidden until this moment. A new song, a true song, rises from us in our uplifted voices; a melody rings out in praises to the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the One who has conquered death and the grave. This song of victory carries across the valley with the Power of His Holy Spirit, and we are revived.
