The power of His name
CLAVER AND KASMIR grew up in the same village. When Claver became a Christian, his life was radically transformed. Though Claver was burdened for his childhood friend and began witnessing to him, Kasmir did not respond straightaway. His father was a pagan priest and Kasmir was in charge of killing the daily sacrifices.
One day, Claver gave Kasmir a Bible and asked him to read a little bit each day. A year later, Kasmir committed his life to the Lord. Since then, the two have reached out to Kasmir’s family and the whole family has abandoned their pagan beliefs.
Today, Claver and Kasmir are trained Forerunners who continue their ministry together. They regularly speak in different churches and their weekly prayer and deliverance service is growing in numbers as people get set free. At the same time they regularly train other Christian young people on how to pray for the sick and deliver people from evil spirits in Jesus’s name.
Eugene and Tina would describe themselves as “gradual” Christians. The Lord took more than 25 years to move them from “dead religion” to being full-on, full-time missionaries. By that time, both their daughters, Chantelle and Tanya were married and serving the Lord in their own lives. Their call was dramatic and clear. The Lord used His Word, (especially Isaiah 58, “Feed the hungry,…clothe the naked,…pour out your lives in a sun-scorched land”…) followed by prophetic individuals speaking in confirmation that left them without doubt. Their testimony includes suffering bodily harm for His sake. Eugene and Tina returned to the field after surgery to continue preaching the Gospel. They are currently involved in a new church-plant and discipleship of believers.
