What an amazing day! Over 200 patients later, Awe Star and Breaking Borders team members left Bullock Village, tired from serving, but filled with joy from seeing God move.
During triage, patient after patient was being led to Christ. Awe Star always starts every clinic with a presentation of the Gospel through the drama. Testimonies are given throughout the day, but it’s at triage that the Gospel is first personalized. For some, they hear in triage and by the time they get to the doctor, God has taken that small seed and fertilized it, making it ready for salvation. For others, their Eternity is changed at triage. So all day throughout the clinic we pray, we serve, we speak the gospel, and then we wait.
We wait for God to give us that ‘moment.’ That ‘moment’ when the hustle and bustle of the clinic seems to stop, and God shows up in conversation that leads to salvation. It is always a beautiful ‘moment’ that everyone rejoices in. Today, we had a lot of those ‘moments.’
One conversation was with a girl around 15 years of age who had just left school. She was asked if she understood the second story of the drama (this is the story of Jesus and His coming to die for our sins); she said no. As we began to share with her about Jesus, she said that she had an uncle that had a book that told all kinds of stories about Jesus.
Her uncle had a library for the village and in it was this ‘special book’ that told the same things we were telling her. This book was a Bible, but she did not know to call it that. She had been raised Muslim her whole life, but today a seed was watered that had been planted through her hearing the stories from an Uncle who read, ‘the special book!’ This was one of those moments we wait and pray for, where all God has been doing collides with the present moment of His calling forth souls.
Please pray for God to move on hearts and tear down walls of Islam.
Pray for the students and practitioners to be given strength and endurance.
Pray for the new believers that have come to Christ in Yuna and Bullock Village.
Pray that the Muslim people would be given dreams and visions before we arrive, and that as we preach the Gospel, their dreams and visions will confirm the Gospel.
