Pastor I

Recent Ministry

This past month we made an extra effort to encourage the high school students who are getting prepared for upcoming exams. We provided back-to-school packages for all the students. We are discovering new unique ways to engage the youth, even using video game events, to attract more to come and hear the gospel.

  • Pray for the students who are studying for their exams to work hard and score well.
  • Pray for our youth outreach and ways to reach these young people with the message of salvation.

We have made more home visits than usual in the last two months, which has led to growth in our church. We regularly have new people coming to the services and accepting Jesus Christ into their hearts. One lady we had been visiting for quite some time, finally decided to attend the church service and has continued in fellowship with us since then.

  • Pray for the house visits.

The need to visit people in their homes will always be present. It is crucial to have the right people to go and care for people in the most appropriate way.

  • Pray for wisdom and discernment for those who are visiting.
  • Pray for a positive reception.

We were able to make renovations to the church property. These improvements will fit our needs better and allow us to host more short-term visitors.

  • Pray for the start of a new leadership course for the members who are interested in being more involved in ministries in the church.
  • Pray for the opportunity to start a women’s ministry in the church.

Pastor I’s Story

(Editors Note: Names and places have been changed or redacted due to government persecution.)

I was born into a committed Christian family and went to church almost every Sunday. At school, I was the only Christian student amongst 37 of my classmates. My classmates asked me questions continually about Christianity such as, how do you believe in three Gods? How could God be crucified and be buried? I was upset and shocked because I could not answer them since I thought I was a real Christian. As a result, they started telling me about the great things they have in their religion, such as giving women their rights, etc.

At this point, although I consider myself a Christian, I started thinking that I couldn’t answer these questions because “Christianity must be twisted.” Then one day God sent my cousin who came to visit us. He was a believer, and he noticed from my questions regarding Christianity that I had some doubts.

He invited me to his evangelical church, and during the meeting, I felt the pastor was preaching and talking straight to me. He said, “You need to repent and receive Christ as your Savior.” Then he asked a question, “What would you do to Christ after he gave his life for you.” My answer was, “I want to leave and deny Him.” That answer made me feel so bad I started to cry, and I prayed to receive Jesus as my Lord and Savior on the 24th of April 1984. Soon after that, I began training to do evangelism and discipleship, I joined ministry at a young age and love the Lord with all my heart.
