At the service of a new church four received the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

Three new churches were planted in an area. Three churches from the area joined our church in fellowship and their pastors were baptized in Jesus' name. The church's members will soon be baptized as well. There are eight branch churches.

While teaching new pastors Apostolic doctrine in one area, eight committed to be baptized in Jesus' name as soon as their churches were also taught. The missionary traveled to one church and thirty-two were baptized including the pastor and eight received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The church was much too small for the crowd so one pastor moved outside to pray for those there. Three more received the baptism of the Holy Spirit outside the church and three received it in the waters of baptism. One pastor traveled home from the seminar and told his church about the correct way to be baptized. The missionary traveled to his church and thirty-four were baptized in Jesus' name including the pastor and his assistant.

One pastor started a new church and held an open air meeting to begin the church where fifteen received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and were baptized in Jesus' name including an Anglican pastor who is now training to be an apostolic pastor.

There was an outside service at one place where fifteen were baptized in Jesus' name and five received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The initial plan was just to meet to sign papers on land for a church building. Never lose an opportunity!

At a district seminar fifteen received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and eight were baptized in Jesus' name including two Trinitarian pastors.

In one district a pastor's wife was in the market with a friend when the friend's daughter came running to her mother to tell her that the other daughter had died at home. When they arrived home people were already preparing the body for burial. The mother asked the pastor's wife to pray and God raised the little girl back to life. The whole village was amazed at the power of God!
