June 1 2016
This fall Aug - Sept I will visit Sweden for a month or so. I don't really know much about the details at present. I am sure God will let me know as I arrive there (as usual).
I visited UK this spring March 24 - April 24 and got to pray for many. I prayed for pastors, church help, people in prayer cells etc. I was glad to have my daughter Caroline with me, since she also has gifts of the Spirit and sees everything that happens in the spirit as I pray.
In an Indian home meeting a man from Lithuania gave his life to the Lord Jesus! It is funny how many different countries God can touch by one person who is willing to go out with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Curses were broken and some were healed. I also got to bless many children and some of them also received the gifts of the Spirit!
People got healed, saved and happy. God will use anyone who wants to serve Him! I am grateful to be of some help however small.
At the moment there is only ONE book I recommend to beginners:The New Testament, King James Version
Take care and may the God of the Bible bless your sock's off!
March 14 2016
I need to get a new Mac computer for my hompage ASAP. Until then you can follow me on Facebook if you like. It might take a while though because of my international travels.
Since I got back from Sweden in late September 2015 I have been hard at work on my coming books. I have also travelled around some and prayed for people in the nearby villages and cities. God is good and is teacheing me new things on a daily basis.
God performs many miracles through prayer all the time. Among other things a blind girl got her sight a while ago.
I have also baptized people in my new tub, since it is still winter. In the summer I baptize people who come to the Lord Jesus wherever there is water.
I was featured in a documentary on Finnish Television a while ago:
In Aug-Sept 2015 I was in Sweden ministering in churches. On my spare time I walked the streets of Sweden w a friend and we healed 80 people or more stranger right there. Some were also baptized in the spirit etc.
Check me out on Facebook, I write almost daily on FB.

2014 I was in Sweden again for a month, made it home for Christmas. People were healed, born again, filled with Holy Spirit and baptized.
In Norrköping I was also filmed for a documentary which will be out in 2016 in Europe I take it.
I really love Sweden, the people there are very friendly.
This spring I will be in Luton, UK. TBA

Working on books in my spare time between appointments.

A black mass will be held in Finland!
On December 8th, a demonic ritual will be performed all around Finland. Unlike some might think, this event is serious and a true worship for Satan, in which Finland will be dedicated to Satan and his demons and Satan’s spirit will be invited to fill the people involved in this ritual.
Please Pray for our country, that God will send His warring angels to defend us, against this folly!
Going back to sweden again now in December 2012. Will probably visit 5 cities.
Been travelling in Sweden a few times, preaching, playing and praying for people, in churches and in smaller groups. Many have been healed, saved and baptized!
God is cool!

Sum: 9 baptized, many healed! When I get back from Sweden, I have to find another place to hold my meetings on. Not to worry, God told me City Church was temporary, we just move on as the following grows! God is so good.

HEALING HOUSE INTERNATIONAL
Summer of 2012
Holding meetings on Friday evenings, in a rented church (Cityförsamlingen i Vasa, kvarngatan 15, at 6 in the evenings). Many are healed, I also baptize people on a nearby beach, it's great fun. Most people come for prayer, so I don't preach long sermons, just play guitar and sing while I await what Holy Spirit wants to do. Anybody can ask for prayer at any time during the service.

Hello, I haven't had time to inform you of what I've been doing lately. My life has changed drastically. Since I started praying for and with people more with the laying on of hands, many have been healed.
I've been into intercessory prayer in many churches. Lately I've been asked to preach as well, so now I'm a preacher! How about that? If someone had asked me a few years ago if I was going to become a preacher, I would probably have laughed. But since I began searching more for God's will and walking on water, I have been called to do many things.
Next week I will be going to Bergskyrkan in Hässelby, Sweden to preach in at least two meetings, since I've been asked to do so. I will naturally also be praying for the sick, which I always do when I preach.
I will be in Stockholm June 5th - 17th. 2009.
God Bless you all, Benjamin

Bop Dun de Dum.mp3
(Release Waam 002) 1996, This was a breakthrough CD, the record is a mix of electronica. Most instruments were played by hand though! We mostly used the sequencers as tape recorders, without quantizing anything, even though there are some loops. The track God in my garage was on MTV Europe for many years! The track "There's a God in my garage" is also released by n'soul records in Hollywood, California, on their ELECTICA 3 1999 CD.
(2000, Release by Riverside Records RRCD 109, Stockholm). This is a rock/pop record, it has been on the air for 7 years now at least in the USA.
Luna Park (NEW)
in my hair.mp3
(Release 2006-7) Waam 009, New!) This seems to be my most popular recording to date. My old friend and CO-founding member of Ben Antell Band, Sixten Sandvik plays the drums, and I (Ben) play all the other instruments. The album is a mix of Hi/Lo Fi, it has a live rock feel.
I will add the other recordings to my site later, when I find the time :-)
There was a warning issued the other day on the news that the ice on the sea is melting.
The general public was told not to go out on the ice...
Being a rock star I rented a limousine yesterday with a brave driver 2 find out: why :-)
Gerby Splash 2...and gurgle...
Bouncing around on the Gerby ice we could see the Wasa coastline...through the mist
It took a while before the limo started going boing boing on the ice, and the limo sinking slightly...so I wouldn't recommend going out there any more.
I told the my driver to stop and check the thickness of the ice...
It was warm and cozy inside the limo, but I could tell from the driver shivering that it was probably very cold in the wind outside.
I was getting hot inside so I told my driver to scoop me some ice for my Coke.
The driver looked coldish...
Although brave, the driver who was named after a bunch of trees (Asplund), declined to go out another time, so that I could get the Mega-splash we created when we got ashore...oh well.

Finnish muso Antell has been around for a while with a large number of albums to his name - as well as some great art and a software company! 'Box Americana' (released in 2000) marked his move from straight electro dance to a more rock orientated sound and is full of interesting twists and turns. This album keeps interest going right to the last track. The guitar sounds are sometimes reminiscent of the Gillan Band and he uses atmospheric sound samples to set the scene for some songs or give an Art Of Noise feel here and there. Covering topics from where has the Gospel gone in American life through to how TV and films have captured a generation, the songs ask loads of questions and start pointing to God for the answers without ever trying to ram the theology down your throat. A well produced album with a nice touch of quirky humour.

BEN ANTELL BAND - LUNA PARK review on the Phantom Tollbooth:
Whoa nelly! Ben Antell Band is an indy-rock band from Sweden (they sing in English) that have created a blessedly warped and catchy bunch o' tunes on Luna Park. This album is a flat out blast...
Do yourself a favor and check out for musical thrills and chills a bit unlike anything you have heard recently. And you gotta' love titles like "What a Beautiful Dei," "Piccolo Bell Boy," "Camel Race - Helter Skelter Days," and the ever popular "Really Hidden Track."
