Evangelist Asbjørn Skjortnes visited Living Streams Church in Iecava, Latvia on the 26th and the 27th of March 2011. The pastor couple in this church is Raivo and Lasma Sastakovics. They have a big heart for reaching people and the church has an active children’s and youth work. Lasma Sastakovics is also central in Aglow `s work in Latvia. The church had invited Asbjorn to have evangelistic meetings where the focus was to reach non believers with the gospel.

Many saved.

It was wonderful to see the response to God’s gospel of grace. During the two days of meetings, 51 people were saved and many testified of immediate healings. The focus of the preaching was Jesus’ finished work on the cross.

Strong healings.

A woman who came to the meeting had had severe pain in her back and legs for over 20 years. This woman was instantly healed. She was so excited about what happened, that she danced around the room (see photo above). A man who had not previously managed to lift his right arm, lifted his arm after prayer and testified that all pain was gone. Another man who was prayed for Saturday night had psoriasis with visible eczema on his arms and palms. The next day when he awoke, his palms and arms were clean, there was no sign of skin disease.

Picture above: The woman no longer needs to use her crutches. After prayer she was able to walk normally.

A woman who had great trouble walking, went home without having to use her crutches after prayer (see photo above). Many people testified of healings from neck-, back- and leg pain. Some also experienced that legs that were too short grew out. A woman testified that she had received her hearing back after prayer.
God’s glory and grace was truly revealed in these meetings to salvation and healing and the church was strengthened in the faith.

Asbjørn Skjortnes continues his meetings in Latvia for a weekend a month. In April, he travels also to Lille in France and in the autumn there will be meetings both in Ukraine and Russia.
Pray for continued harvest in Europe so that churches can grow to the glory of God.
