God’s Hand At Work
Joshil’s life taking him skepticism to surrendering to Christ will inspire and challenge you in your own life!
Have you seen God’s hand at work in your life?
How did He bring you to where you are today?
No matter where you are, your age, your job, family, or ministry…you are here today because of God’s faithfulness.
Did you know that?
Recently, I was reading and reflecting on some testimonies given at one of our training events in India.
In fact, stories like this are wonderful reminders of the transforming power of Jesus. Even through times of ridicule and oppression, with very little teaching and fellowship with other believers, God is able to sustain us through His Word and by the Holy Spirit.
Be encouraged and inspired by Joshil’s story!
Joshil’s story of God’s hand at work
Meet Joshil! He is one of our newer leaders. He’s in his early 30s, with a background in education, and is a gifted, passionate man of vision.
“I was brought up in a Hindu family,” he said. “A pastor used to come 70 kilometers to my village. And I would try to chase him away! A friend and I sat in the back of the meeting one evening to cause trouble.”
“But this meeting was different,” Joshil said. “The Word of God came like a bullet in my heart, and I was transformed. In fact, I knelt and wept for the first time. I surrendered my life to Jesus.”
New life isn’t easy
However, Joshil’s new life wasn’t easy. In fact, for a year he struggled. His family ridiculed him; he had no local church; the pastor only came occasionally. Yet, there was no one to nurture his new life in Christ. Eventually, he left his family and went to a Bible school. After ten years he made it home again after he got married.
Despite the difficulties, Joshil has grown spiritually, and he knows the importance of equipping others to be disciples of Jesus.
In fact, He said, “In all these years, I can see the hand of God in my life. The change that happened that night sustained me.”
Would you pray for Joshil and others like him as they share the Good News of Jesus and make disciples? Could you thank the Lord for His hand that guides and sustains you and all of us who know and trust Him.
Global Disciples Canada is a Christian mission organization that trains local leaders living near least-reached communities to multiply disciples for Christ. One-third of our world hasn’t heard the Good News of Jesus. Yet. Global Disciples refers to these as “least-reached” people, and fewer than 10% of all missionaries work among these groups. We live in a time where many of these people are within reach of a local church. Through our simple and effective strategy of training and coaching, believers share the Gospel in their own nations and cultures. Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations,” and we’re committed to doing just that. If you are looking for a Christian mission organization to partner with to become a better disciple and help make disciples, connect with us today!
