Thousands of people from all walks of life braving the rains at Kohima local ground attended the Kohima Healing Festival on the second day under the theme, ‘…..I am the Lord, who heals you,’ drawn from Exodus 15;26 today.
Hundreds of people thronged to the pulpit, as the altar call for healing was announced by Rev. Tom Elie, President of Oasis World Ministries, USA and dedicated their life to Jesus Christ. A special prayer for married couples was pronounced by Larry Frick.
Tom, the main speaker in his sermon urged people to forget their past and look forward to a future citing the example of prodigal son in the Bible.
Stating that one has to come to God with all humility, he asked people to admit their mistakes, believe that Jesus died and rose again and remember the cross of Calvary, where Jesus bled and died.
Choirs from Sumi Baptist Church and Kohima Baptist Revival Church presented songs on the occasion.
The programme was led by Pastor Ketou Theunuo. Rev. Toshi Ao, Pastor NCRC (Officer’s hill) read the scripture and invoked God’s blessings. Rev. Moses Murry, general superintendent, Assemblies of God, North East India greeted the people.
