The weekend before Christmas, a couple on our team stopped into a corner shop to buy some juice for a party. The man running the shop was eager to talk about faith and he asked our teammate to bring him a Bible. A few weeks later, they had a follow-up meeting during which the man gladly received a New Testament.
Recently, the teammate stopped by for another follow-up and the man exclaimed, “I love Jesus and everyone who loves Him!” Together they turned to John 14 and read, “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments” (v. 15). The man stuck a bookmark in his New Testament and said he would go back and study that part more. Then he asked to have a whole Bible.
Praise God for the work He is doing in this man’s heart! Pray that the Holy Spirit speaks clearly through the scriptures and that this man would know the freedom that comes in following Jesus Christ. Pray for our teammate as he begins to disciple this man, and let us pray confidently that He who began a good work in him will carry it to completion.
