The sound of screaming paired with deep sobs lured two East-West national partners to a group gathered on an African street.
As they approached, they noticed a man named Haeran thrashing himself against the ground. They soon found out Haeran had spent years taunted by demons that would often possess his body … and they had just walked up on one of those episodes.
The national partners had no doubt that God purposefully led them down this street to meet this group. They ventured out that day intending to talk with people about the gospel, and this was an incredible opportunity to do just that.
But first they had a demon to take care of.
Knowing that Jesus had given them all authority to drive out demons, heal the sick, and raise the dead through the power of His Spirit, they began praying in faith that the demon dwelling in Haeran would flee at the Name of Jesus. And they were right.
Instantly the evil spirit left Haeran. The crowd stood astounded.
The national partners directed the conversation to the gospel, and as they shared the story of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection Haeran and others listened intently.
The weight of the partners’ words weighed on Haeran’s heart, and in that moment he trusted in Jesus. After witnessing his profound transformation, his wife and son also became followers of Christ that day.
