This is a copy of a testimony I received from Pastor Nani Babu who was our first CONECTer in India who used Operation Rolling Thunder (ORT) to mobilize and unite churches to pray together. I'll let his letter speak for itself.
Our country especially my state depends on agriculture and our agriculture relies on rain. Eighty percent of our people are employed through agriculture and its related works. We depend upon rain for electricity generation as well as drinking water for livestock and people. Every year the rains start in the first week June; except this year. The temperatures have been extra warm to and has killed many fruit trees which many farmers rely upon for their income.
This year the monsoon came late. These conditions not only contributed to many fields becoming useless but also heightened the number of people whose health is failing. Many Hindu priests performed their rituals for rain throughout the month. We waited for our turn. People are expecting rain for cultivation, and for cool weather, electricity generation, drinking water for people and livestock.
On 4th of July I made a decision and passed the message to all the churches using the ORT strategy with me and their CONECTers. We (churches, CONECTers, prayer warriors) prayed together on July 5th for rains in India. We prayed one full day and on Sunday we had our worship service. That night at 8 pm our prayers were answered and the rain is still falling. People are so thankful and praising God for that. Many may not know what caused rain to fall, But the ORT churches know. We hope every thing will be made right within short time.
I really blessed to be the National CONECTer and Overseer for a such a powerful strategy, and working with such a powerful prayer warriors internationally. I heartily thank Apostle Tim. It is such a privilege to work with him as overseer of ORT- India. I love it.
