People taught that Christians are wicked learned otherwise when they received clean water, food and health care from local missionaries, opening their hearts to hear the gospel. As workers testified to how faith in Christ transformed their lives, the Holy Spirit touched villagers’ hearts, and they wanted to know more. Personal sharing, Bible studies, audio Bibles for the illiterate, and meetings under large trees or in bamboo houses, among other means, helped lead people to put their faith in Christ. Workers need donations to undertake these outreaches of evangelism and discipleship. Pray new believers will find fellowship in spite of surges in the pandemic.
“Therefore he had to be made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.” (Hebrews 2:17)
