Stories of Transformation through Christ!

More than one million villages still have not heard the Gospel. You can help us reach as many as possible. People, just like these, are waiting to be transformed by Christ.

Every village that is reached results in amazing stories of transformation through the power of Jesus Christ. These are real stories of real people.  

 

God's Great Plan

Caroline in Poland was raised to attend church, but no one ever told her that she could have a personal relationship with God. She felt like she could never meet her family’s expectations. “They criticized me, telling me I would never achieve anything,” she says. “So, I reacted by cutting myself. I started going to parties, got into alcohol, cigarettes, sometimes drugs, and trouble with boys. I was 18 at the time."

“I decided to go to college in some big city. I figured I could pay for everything by working as a prostitute. Those were my plans. If things didn’t go the way I planned it, I could always end my life.“

Then, at college, Caroline met Simon, and he began talking to her about God. She recalls, “This topic was so interesting to me. We arranged to meet, and he started explaining to me how he met God and became a Christian. Since that time, my life began to change.”

Simon gave Caroline a Bible, and she started reading the Gospel. “I was praying and seeing God answer my prayers and reading the Bible and learning more about Him,” she shares. Later, Simon invited Caroline to a youth meeting, and she is still involved. “I got baptized,” she tells. “My parents actually came to my baptism. We finally started to develop a relationship – especially with my mom because we never had one.”

Caroline began training to lead Bible studies, and her desire to share the Gospel grew as she learned ways to talk to people about Jesus. She was living with her 91-year-old aunt, and they started studying God’s Word together. During the first lesson, her aunt prayed in her own words for the first time. “She’s really happy that we can meet and study God’s Word together,” Caroline notes. “It is a great joy for me to see what she has discovered for herself in the Bible!”

Transforming Cambodia

A church in every village. A Bible for every believer.

Half of Cambodia’s 14,000 villages still have no church and no Bibles. Last year, we shared the vision and strategic plan our Cambodian team has to mobilize local believers to start a church in every single unreached village within the next 5 years.

Through your support and the team’s work, 778 new churches were started during the past year! We desperately need your help to continue this momentum and supply a Bible for every new believer. The Cambodia team needs us to provide 20,000 Bibles at a cost of $150,000 for the coming year.

Kiry Vannak*, a ministry team member whose previous religion involved trying to appease evil spirits, told us that the Bible was key in his journey with the Lord. A Cambodian Christian came to his village proclaiming the Gospel. After completing several Bible studies with the man, Vannak put his faith in Jesus and was baptized. He shares, “I decided to obey the command of Jesus Christ in Matthew 28:18-20 to go and preach the Gospel of salvation to all people.”

Thanks to ministry partners like Vannak, nearly 54,000 people decided to follow Jesus last year! Our Cambodian team can’t keep up with the demand for Bibles. For every $75 given, you can help 10 new believers receive a Bible to help them grow in their faith.

Some of them may be the next Vannak, called by God to be part of the plan to start a church in every Cambodian village. A few decades ago, no one would have imagined this vision was possible, but with your help and God’s, it can be fulfilled!

Freedom in Christ

Khine was living as a Buddhist monk in Myanmar. One day, he suffered a stroke and was paralyzed. His followers took him to a special clinic for treatment. But even with the best treatment available, he wasn’t getting better.

Feeling desperate, Khine told one of his followers, “I have heard about those Christians. People say that when they pray, anything can happen. Please take me to see them.”

Khine’s friend carried him through their village to a house church meeting. The pastor and the people welcomed them — even though they were surprised to see them. They prayed for Khine to recover. That night, God healed Khine, and everyone there witnessed an awesome miracle of God.

Khine began to attend the house church meetings and hear more about Jesus Christ, His death and resurrection, and how to have a personal faith in God. “This was the first time in my life that I heard about Jesus,” he says.

Soon, Khine asked Christ to be his Savior. He continues to face a difficult challenge as a Christian in a country where Buddhism dominates. But he never loses heart or gives up. He loves to explain to his followers about the only God and about Jesus who died to set them free.

Faithful Through the Storm

Alida grew up in Serbia with no interest in God or faith. That changed a couple of years ago when she came to a bad place in her life as difficulties arose in her marriage. Her friend invited her to a church service. She immediately felt the warm, loving atmosphere and noticed demonstrations of sincere care among the people. Alida wanted to have what they had and kept returning. She decided to accept Jesus and allowed God’s Word to start transforming her thoughts, attitudes and behavior.

The real storm in Alida’s life came when her husband was unfaithful to her. Her only harbor in the eye of the storm was Jesus. He gave her strength to continue to pray, read His Word and hold on to His promises. This gave her a real determination to follow and serve Him. She forgave her husband and was ready to take him back, but he left with another woman.

Alida gradually healed from those wounds and committed to the promise she gave to the Lord: to serve Him and seek fulfillment in every area of life through Jesus Christ. Today, she ministers at a local church and is working to help start a new church in a neighboring area.
