Reaching a new town
June 11, 2015

Early one morning the Lord spoke to me to go to a small village where we had never been before. To reach there we had to go by train for about three hours, walk about four miles, cross a river and then walk again. Thus it took us a whole day to reach there. I was standing on the corner of the street with Gospels and other books upon my left arm. One young man passed by and saw me with the books. He stopped and questioned me about who I was, and why I was there. I told him I was a Christian, and had come to invite people to come to Him for forgiveness. He said he was a Muslim and that the village had never allowed a Christian to preach there. In a few words I gave him my testimony of how Christ changed my life a few years ago even though I hated Him and blasphemed Him. Having heard my testimony he asked me where I was staying. I told him, I was staying the same place I was standing. He said, ‘you can stay with me tonight and give a message.’ He sent his servants to invite both Hindus and Moslems. After a word of prayer, I gave a message and closed the meeting. Afterwards we had food together. At that time a man said to me, ‘The Lord has sent you here for my sake.’ Someone had given him a gospel which he had read several times. He was waiting and praying to know more about the only way of salvation and wanted to have a full Bible. Before I left the Lord instructed me to take a full Bible with me. I gave him the Bible and he accepted Jesus Christ as his personal savior.
