Asia

In one group an amazing thing happened. On Wednesday the host family and the head of the village had invited 250 people to wait for the team to share Jesus with them after they returned from another village.

We do not know why, but they did invite people to wait for us, and rented chairs, printed an invitation letter, and provided food for the people at their own expense.

The team did not spend any money except a little at the end to provide some noodles for some people. All 250 prayed to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

My name is [name withheld] and I am 23 years old. When my parents were still alive they loved to bring me to church, but they have passed away. I have to stay with my uncle and they would always take me to the mosque and tried to make me a Muslim.

Today I met [overseas partner] and she told me all about Jesus and His goodness and love. He gave His life to save me and paid for my sins. Now I repent from my sins and will tell my younger sister and brother about Jesus. This is the good news. Thank you for sharing this great news with me.

Under the leadership of our village leader, the villagers excommunicated us. We were not allowed to work on anyone’s land, and to drink water from any [place] in our village. We were under the question of survival. Situation remained about a year.

Now no more problem. Due to our testimony and behavior some more families became Christians. We all believers have built a church. We are grateful for [overseas partner] for he repeatedly visited us during our crisis time and prayed and encouraged us.

A few days in the week, brother [name withheld] who was the leader of the teams was arrested by the local village leaders and he was tied up and tied to a tree. Praise the Lord that our God was with the teams. He was kept for eight hours as the clan local leaders were discussing about our teams.

Their claim was why the team did not have a permit to preach in the area. This was the first crusade in this remote area. Afterwards all the local leaders set free brother [name withheld] and our team continued sharing Jesus to the people.

I have been very active in my church thinking that works can make me a good Christian. For the first time my life was brought before me as I came under great conviction. I confessed my sins and asked the Lord to forgive me. My former church never told us the truth that could save but help us in bondage. But thank God for opening my eyes to the truth.

Helen, Cameroon

One woman who was practicing syncretism exposed herself when our team visited her home. The woman was very active in church and the pastor could recognize her in different capacities in church. She was known to be very punctual in church and participated a lot. And yet, she was partially a sangoma [traditional healer in South Africa] who practiced secretly.

She would have some clients who she visited during the night, and had the regalia and the attire that she used for all her witch doctor practices. She requested to be visited by the team when she saw many people coming to the Lord as a result of the door the door outreach.

When the team visited her they shared the Gospel and she clearly confessed her secret acts. She was delivered and gave her life to the Lord. She also gathered the attire and all the utensils that she used in the dark life for burning. She could not hide her joy of being delivered and she joined the team for the remainder of the week sharing what the Lord had done for her.

At that moment, Jesus guided me to share the gospel with him, I felt how the power of the Lord strengthened me and gave me the authority, so God could confront this young man himself about his sins and his disobedience so that he recognized he had failed to the Lord.

At that moment, we did the prayer of faith and we could see the joy that this young man had in his heart. He confessed his sins to the Lord and now he can follow Christ. After this crusade, I want to continue sharing more about Christ. Thank you very much for the support for me to carry the message of salvation.

I found myself confronted by what I learned. Every question of the questionnaire made me think and that helped to me to understand better the plan of God for my life.

When they talked to me about Christ, I said that I believed in Him and being good was enough to get to heaven. Then, the people from the church told me about my condition and explained that I had been separated from God, so just being good was not enough.

Carlos Chura, Bolivia

It is the first time that we did a project since a long time ago. This project manifested in the midst of violence and bloodshed through the government of Nicaragua toward protesters. The team of the crusade had to be internal in each church, and just one person from Guatemala helped because it was dangerous.

Through this week of [the project], the protesters of the region tried to take the life of the regional coordinator of the crusade, but he knelt down to pray to God, and just in that moment someone recognized him, so the people could return his motorbike and protect him, instead of killing him. God is wonderful!

My name is Sarita Redon and this was my first experience as a part of the team of crusade. I did not have money to cover my expenses but I had a huge desire to go, so the national coordinator sponsored me. When we arrived to the place, we did teams and they thought that I was an expert sharing the gospel but God gave me strength and I went out with courage to share the gospel. We met a young man who looked very astray and he looked like he did not have any desire to follow Jesus.

At that moment, Jesus guided me to share the gospel with him, I felt how the power of the Lord strengthened me and gave me the authority, so God could confront this young man himself about his sins and his disobedience so that he recognized he had failed to the Lord.

At that moment, we did the prayer of faith and we could see the joy that this young man had in his heart. He confessed his sins to the Lord and now he can follow Christ.

Before coming to Christ I had been addicted to drugs and because of it I was homeless and lost everything I had. Only God could completely restore my life, my health, and give me a new family.

[The lady I was sharing with kept asking me]: ‘How in the world can people like you change their lives?’ We told her if she wants to see God’s glory and His power, she needs to call upon His name and invite Him into her life. But she was resisting, not believing it could work for her. She wanted to ‘see God somehow’ before trusting Him.

But we continued our conversation, and finally this lady said: ‘Ok, if God changed such bad people like you, it means He can change a person like me. I really want your God to enter my life as well.’

Audrey Smirnyagin, Russia

Many people said: ‘God sent you.’ They felt God’s touch and His presence after the prayer of repentance.

One man confessed that Jesus Christ made a chance in him and now he wants to stop using drugs. Another lady confessed that she was set free from her psychological problems that she had. One more lady was full of bitterness and she couldn’t forgive. When she accepted Christ she decided to forgive her daughter-in-law.

I praise God for all those who supported with prayer and finances the N2N outreach in the Slatina area [of Romania].

God encouraged our members to be more eager and more courageous to share the Gospel with our neighbors, colleagues, and friends.

[Name withheld] is over 75 years old and has some kind of paralysis. Once he knew that we are from the church and we are here because we are caring and love him, he started to cry because he felt guilty. He had throughout his life. He asked, will God accept him after all he had done?

We shared the Gospel message, then we answered his question. He and his wife accepted Jesus for their life. We prayed and asked him to pray . . . while he was praying he spent a long time crying, and again announced that he accepted Jesus for the first time in his life.

On Thursday we went to visit [name withheld] in the hospital in [location withheld], who tried to kill herself by taking more than ninety tablets of medicine she used. She is 23 years old.

She asked us if God will forgive her for what she did to herself. It was amazing chance to share about His love and what He did for us. His love had touched her heart. She accepted Him as Lord and Savior. We prayed with and for her, shared some encouraging words and left.
