AN ENCOUNTER WITH GOD’S SERVANT
On the last day of the conference, Morris Cerullo anointed us with oil. We asked for additional prayer since we were leaving the country to be missionaries.
Morris proceeded to blow with his mouth the fire of the Holy Spirit, and suddenly the Holy Spirit engulfed, immersed, and submersed us in His baptism. For thirty minutes, the Holy Spirit saturated us powerfully with His Presence. After leaving this conference, this anointing has stayed with us wherever we have gone.
Shortly after arriving in the Philippines, we ministered in the province capital of Antique, San Jose, before a crowd of 500 people. Many people were saved, healed, delivered, and slain in the Holy Spirit. For the next two years, we were an integral part of an evangelistic team that completed ten crusades in ten towns, which resulted in planting ten churches spread from the north to the south of Antique’s long, narrow province.
Multiple people were delivered from demons. Witchcraft was very prevalent in Antique. But the mighty ministry of the Holy Spirit was an effective means to reach the lost. In one of the crusades in the Arobo village, a witch was gloriously saved and delivered, throwing her demonic priestess ring into a field.
The crusade that touched Joseline’s heart the most was in her home village, Guisijan, where she grew up. At the time of the crusade, there were no Bible-believing churches in her town. At this crusade, approximately 300 people attended, with forty people accepting Jesus Christ as their Savior.
With all these converts, Guisijan now needed a church building. God had already provided that building about two years earlier. Jeff was at a Morris Cerullo partner’s conference in Palm Springs, California. A special offering for the mission to the former Soviet Union countries was received at this conference.
