Healing service opens at Alpha and Omega Ministries, Christiana

Alpha and Omega Ministries is sponsoring monthly healing services the last Saturday of each month at 6 p.m. at its ministry center at 191 Upper Valley Road, Christiana. "Every New Testament Christian church should expect to see healings and miracles following the preaching of the Gospel, as Jesus said in the Gospel of Mark, Chapter 16," Alpha and Omega's minister, Frank Testa, said. "We believe Jesus heals today, and many people in the Lancaster area are very much in need of His healing. Jesus said if we would believe, we would see the glory of God. Healing is all part of the saving power of God," Testa said.

Livingstone Kamau, a Kenyan pastor who has been ministering healing and deliverance in the U.S. for the past four years, will be conducting the healing service monthly at Alpha and Omega. A well-known pastor in the City of Nairobi, Kenya, for many years, Pastor Kamau has traveled the U.S. manifesting the power of Jesus Christ to heal people of all kinds of sicknesses and to set people free from the oppression of the devil.

The monthly meetings at Alpha and Omega ministries are free and open to all who need healing and deliverance.
