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.  

 

David's New Decision

MacvadMy name is David. I am 13 and I come from the village of Rastu Nou in Romania. Four years ago floods devastated my village. After the floods swept through, evangelical Christians from a nearby town started to come to our village. They built us a small chapel for worship. All of us children were so curious and went to see what went on in the chapel. That was how we first got in touch with God and born again Christians.

The church from this neighboring town also sent a couple of Bible teachers who taught us songs and Bible verses every week. These teachers have continued to come every week for the last four years. I occasionally attended the Bible classes. At one of them, I was invited to go to the Hope Youth Camp.

I liked everything at the camp: the beautiful nature, the food, games, lessons and Bible verses we read. We also learned to pray and sing. I noticed that everybody talked nicely to everyone else; that was another lesson I learned from the camp.

I received a booklet called "Cristina" where I learned the meaning of the colors on the salvation bracelet (black is the color of sin, etc.). I began to understand how important it was for me to read the Bible because it was where I would come to know God better and also learn how to serve Him.

I thought about the floods four years earlier in my village. I realized that even though our house was completely damaged, God had protected and saved my family and me from the floods. I decided to follow God and give my life to Him...

Freedom From Addiction

addictBeing the oldest of eight children wasn't always easy. It required me to find work in the farming community where I grew up to assist in supporting my family. Working on the farms was something I enjoyed. But I needed more work than farming could provide. So by the age of 17, I spent many hours working as a bus driver.

Driving people around exposed me to some negative influences that began my downward spiral into a life of addiction and despair. Life began to feel hopeless.

Hope In A Dark World

 

Finding hope

As a child, I never planned on being someone who clashed with the government, got arrested, or spent time in court. But as I was growing up, I began to notice and feel great compassion for the starving, poor and less fortunate people that seemed to be all around me. I was disturbed by how the marginalized people in my country were abused.

I felt helpless and wanted to do something. So I joined a human rights organization where I met others who thought like me and actively campaigned for the rights of others. Our work distributing information and arranging peaceful protests and marches have gotten me into trouble with the government on more than one occasion.

I began to channel all of my energies into supporting these human rights activities. And while I believed in them, I gradually began to realize I could not change the world. The big problems loomed and only seemed to get worse. I felt powerless.

But then he found a book...Read More

The God of Brilliant Lights

There are more than one million villages where people are still living in darkness, never having heard about a loving God and His Son Jesus Christ. In Aaron Shust's song, God of Brilliant Lights, he says, "The God of brilliant lights is shining down over us. Breaking through the darkness covering all the earth." This story demonstrates this eternal truth about our loving God.
