Greetings, in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
October was a powerful breakthrough month for our ministry, as God opened opportunities in several states where I spent days and nights praying, equipping the saints to do the works of Jesus, and taking them to the streets to put it into practice. God did many miracles of healing and deliverance, enabling us to reach the lost and backsliders in the churches and on the streets.
I travelled to Rockport, Indiana September 30 – October 5th to minister at The Refuge at Rockport. God did many amazing miracles. As a result, many people surrendered their lives to the Lord. At every service, no whether the saints were being equipped to do the works of Jesus or an evangelistic message was being preached, when the call was given for those who were present who were lost or backslid, people responded and came forward with every head up and every eye open. On Sunday morning, over thirty people ran to the altar and cried to God for mercy. HALLELUJAH!
A POWERFUL MIRACLE
At the end of one service, a man asked for prayer who suffered with terrible back pain all his life due to being born with his right leg being about an inch shorter than the other. He’d had a “double fusion” in his lower back and had to wear shoe inserts to keep his pelvis level. Not only did Jesus grow out his leg, but he was also able to bend over and touch the floor for the first time in ten years! He was completely astonished and overwhelmed, as was his wife. He kept saying, “THAT’S IMPOSSIBLE!”
With God, all things are possible.
IGNITE CHURCH OF ROCK HILL
We also ministered at Ignite Church of Rock Hill, SC on October 23 – 26. Many people were healed, several surrendered all to Jesus and were baptized in water, and several received the baptism in the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues.
People who had read my book, “You Can Do the Works of Jesus – Moving From Theory to Reality” when I was there before, bought as many as ten or twenty additional copies this time just to give away.
21st ANNUAL FIRE INTERNATIONAL MISSIONS CONFERENCE
It was such a blessing to attend the missions conference at FIRE Church October 16-19. We got to spend some real quality time with several F.I. missionary families. It was a special time of sweet fellowship.
A DIVINE APPOINTMENT
We are so grateful to Jim and Marcia Riggins who are the couple we stayed with who hosted us during the missions conference. They were so hungry for God and so generous and gracious to us. While we were in their home, they both received the baptism in the Holy Spirit and God took them to a much deeper place spiritually than they had ever been before. It was a divine setup!
“HOODIES FOR THE HOMELESS”… and more!
During the missions conference, God enabled us to raise almost $1400 to purchase 50 hoodies and sweatpants, 100 sock hats, 180 pairs of socks, many pairs of gloves and 33 long Johns for our homeless friends that God uses us to minister to on the streets of Atlanta every Tuesday night. We just drove down to Griffin, Georgia yesterday and picked everything up. THANK YOU FOR HELPING US DO IT!
MIRACLE AT WAFFLE HOUSE
A friend of mine at the North Georgia Revival in Dawsonville took Pat and I to Waffle House recently after the service. After enjoying a meal and some great fellowship together, we met several young ladies who were seated at the bar who had been to the revival who are from Charlotte. A few minutes later, we noticed a young man on crutches who was struggling and appeared to be in tremendous pain. I asked him about it, and he explained that he had suffered with acute vasculitis since he was young. When we asked him if he would like to be healed, he looked surprised and said that he would. We told him that the Kingdom of Heaven had come to the Waffle House, and that if he would allow us to touch his foot, the Lord Jesus Christ would heal his foot on the spot. He gave permission and as soon as we prayed, the pain completely left his foot. He was shocked! He immediately began to confess that he was a backslider, and asked God to forgive him. We told him about the revival and asked if he’d like to be baptized. He said “sure, when?” We told him, “right now!” He was astonished, and agreed to follow us back to the revival. I sent a text to Pastor Todd Smith and he called some folks at the church who were waiting for us when we arrived. He was the last one to be baptized that night. The young ladies we met at Waffle House got so excited that they also came back to watch his baptism.
Jonathan walked all the way in from the parking lot , down the long hallway to the baptismal pool and back without any pain. He left his crutches in the car.
I ain’t bored.
Thank you for partnering with us so that we can continue reaching those whom society has ignored, but whom God deeply loves.
Your inner-city missionaries,
Joel and Pat Crumpton
