My husband grew up in Southeast Asia, where his parents are still in full-time ministry. Throughout his childhood he witnessed the supernatural on a daily basis, and many miracles occurred around him. Despite being nominally Christian, the region still had deep roots in animism, with witch doctors practicing voodoo and other dark occult practices. But a few years ago, the island, so full of pain, fear, and spiritual bondage, started experiencing full-on revival!
On the base lived local children who had been brought out of abusive, neglectful, or poverty-stricken households and placed in family homes with local parents. There was also a hospital ward on the base, which served the local community. One day, the children were encouraged to enter the hospital ward and pray for the patients. They did so joyfully and afterwards went back to school or whatever they were up to that day.
The next day, my mother-in-law walked up to the ward to check on the patients, as was often her habit. The only patient remaining was a physiotherapy patient. The rest were completely healed and had checked out and gone home! She was completely shocked and amazed. How good is our God? In one day, using children, He cleared out the entire ward!
