AMAZING THINGS. (2)
The testimony of a boy in Malawi, one of the poorest countries in Africa, proving the power of the Gospel of Christ.
This is a boy named Foster, aged 14, who gave some very interesting comments when I (John, of the Good Hope team) was asking how our lessons helped him (we had gone to his village a few months ago to do all our programs there). Instead of just telling me how he loved the Forgiving Father lesson, he spoke about how his parents have been affected with the lessons and he said “Since my parents came to your programs, my father has stopped beating my mom and I have never seen him drinking again. He would always come home late and they would argue all night and it always ended up with my mom crying after being beaten up by him. I was always scared of what was happening in our family and I thought there was no hope for us and that we would always be like that. But luckily, I saw that they both came to the lessons here and since that day I knew that something definitely changed. My father now works hard to pay for school fees for us and provide us with all our needs at home. I do not know what they were taught in those lessons, but I assure you, it was life-changing. We now live a happy life that I always dreamt of. I am so thankful to God for sending the Good Hope team here to deliver the wonderful news. Even myself, I learned so much about the forgiving father lesson and I understand what that story is all about. I am happy to know that God loves us and cares for us all. Thank God for this ministry.”
How amazing and beautiful.
Yes, the apostle Paul was right when he wrote to the Romans that he was not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes. The gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ is not just a nice story, it is a message, the only message on earth, with power, the power to change the selfish heart of man.
