Surpresa Sithole, our International Director of Pastors recently returned from Israel.
Heidi, Surpresa and I just flew in to encourage our believers here, and we are setting up for a local conference meeting in a brand new church we just built.
Surpresa Sithole, our Mozambican national director, seems incapable of a negative thought. Brimming over with the Holy Spirit, he grins broadly and laughs easily in all circumstances. He is my constant companion in the bush, and we go everywhere preaching together. Jesus supernaturally called him away from his village witch doctor parents and has made him a powerful leader among our churches. But for a moment today he is more serious. He is on the phone from South Africa, and again we face a test of faith. Simon... More

With a special impartation to catalyze revival fire all over the world, Supresa is often sent by the Bakers to stir an unquenchable hunger for Him and the harvest.

Surpresa Sithole of Mozambique (Iris Ministries)Pastor Surpresa Sithole was called by the Lord Jesus Christ at a young age of 15 when the Lord told him to leave everything behind, follow Jesus and preach the gospel wherever he went.Leaving his family and all possession, he took up his cross to follow the Lamb wherever He goes and has never looked back since.In 1997, God sovereignly connected Surpresa with Heidi and Rolland Baker of IRIS Ministries.Surpresa now serves as the International Director of IRIS Ministries where he helps oversee the rapidly spreading revival in southern African which has witnesses close to 6,000 new churches being birthed since 2000.Surpresa loves Jesus more than life itself.This all consuming passion drives him to the darkest and most unreached areas of the world with one desire alone - to see the glory of the Lord cover the earth as the waters cover the sea (Hab 2:14).With a special impartation to catalyze revival fire all over the world, Surpresa is often sent by the Bakers to stir an unquenchable hunger for Him and the harvest.Missionary Rolland Baker tells about Surpresa's background:"Surpresa became our Mozambican national director and is a powerful encouragement everywhere he goes.Both his father and mother were witch doctors in his hometown of Morrumbala out in the bush of a remote province.When he was fifteen the audible voice of Jesus told him to get out of his house or he would die within a week.He didn't know anything about the cross and salvation then, but he did know that from then on his life belonged to this amazing Jesus.He fled down the road and learned later that his parents were murdered within the week.He survived out in the rough like a refugee, and eventually a pastor in Malawi explained the gospel of Jesus Christ to him.Surpresa never looked back and has been living a life of signs and wonders ever since.He speaks fourteen languages, ten given to him supernaturally.Fasting and prayer are a way of life for him, and he sees visions regularly.But Surpresa's most impressive quality is that he is filled with love and joy.He is virtually incapable of a negative thought, laughing easily and often in all circumstances.He still travels with me preaching all over Mozambique and surrounding countries to our churches, which now number in the thousands.I remember when he first told me about praying for a little girl who was raised from the dead.It had happened months earlier, but Surpresa had forgotten to mention it.Our pastors are so extremely understated and not hungry for publicity.In February of 2001 Surpresa was holding a crusade in the community hall of Komatipoort, a small town on the border of Mozambique.On a Wednesday morning the area chief came to him and said that the meetings would have to be stopped.A girl had died of malaria the night before in a nearby house and people wanted quiet so they could mourn.Surpresa responded by going to the house and praying for the family of the little six-year-old Shansha.Her father was gone, trying to find transport to take her body to the mortuary.She was still in her bed, cold and stiff, and had begun to smell of decay.Surpresa began to pray at ten o'clock in the morning with her mother and six ladies present in her room.According to Surpresa, he didn't know what else to do so he kept praying for the family."After awhile," he said smiling, "I prayed with such power that they fell asleep on grass mats on the cement floor."Not knowing what else to do, he kept praying.His fingers were resting on the mat beside the dead girl.Suddenly, after about another hour of prayer, the little girl grabbed Surpresa's finger and sat up as though she had been in a deep sleep."I nearly jumped out of my skin!"Surpresa says.The little girl asked for a drink, and Surpresa poured a glass of Coke for her.Surpresa had to wake up her mother and the ladies in the hut because they were still asleep.In shock, they began weeping, laughing and jumping with joy and ran screaming the news into the village.For the next two weeks, Surpresa says, they held meetings in that village to packed audiences and many were saved.As far as we know, at least eight people have been raised from the dead in this revival between 2000 and 2002, and maybe fourteen since 1998.Several of these resurrections took place in heavily Moslem areas, and many Moslems have come to Jesus as a result.Surpresa and the pastors involved are absolutely shocked by God's graciousness in allowing them to experience such power in spite of their inferiority.But they know that we as Christians live by faith, looking not at our sin and weakness, but into His face.He has given us a commission: "As you go, preach this message: 'The kingdom of heaven is near.' Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons.
