A few months ago I asked you to pray for Angela. I would love to add her evangelism story to the ones below. We just might be able to do that before we leave. Please continue to pray!
Evangelism is often about divine appointments. Yesterday, in batey Anone, a man came into the clinic. He was in no particular need of medical care. After he saw Doc, he was escorted to our Gospel teams. He told them he had always tried to be a good person and knew he should be good. But he also knew something was missing in his life and he couldn’t be good enough to make the ache in his heart go away. He said he came hoping someone could tell him how to know God personally. The Spirit had done the evangelism work and we were blessed to see this man come to faith!
A woman came for medical care. She seemed dour and dark. After she received medical care she came to the Gospel team. She said she understood the need for salvation. She also believed she could not be saved. She was involved with magic and voodoo. After some pretty intense prayer, she was a child of God. The difference in her countenance and demeanor was unbelievable! But her story gets better.
A few minutes later her husband saw the doctor. When he heard the offer of forgiveness he also gave his life to Christ. A home was saved in batey Anone yesterday! God is good.
A young man who translated for our medical work give his life to Christ. He was also what we might call ‘low-hanging fruit.’ He was one of the people who didn’t find the church attractive. He had not wanted to accept Christ because of the church. In God’s way of arranging evangelism appointments, he allowed this young man to meet our team of mission volunteers. Those relationships and conversations were the final things God used to draw this young man to salvation.
The fifth story could be anyone of the 25+ people that have found the Lord this week in La Romana. I’d like to count you as the fifth success story. Your prayers have been so evident here this week. It is not possible to thank you enough for that. Please keep praying, and please pray for Angela.
Enjoy the shots below of some of our work on Thursday!
Soli Deo Gloria!
