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.  

 

It is so encouraging to see a person who has lived a long life finally reach out, repent and accept Jesus as Lord and Savior! Ivan in Serbia lived his whole life apart from God until very recently. He felt his life needed purpose, so he began attending a church.

Much like this familiar story found in Matthew, the testimony of Robert* in Bulgaria reminds us that true faith in the Most High God yields thorough transformation and healing.

Robert suffered from a rare illness that distorted and paralyzed his mouth. Though doctors were actively seeking a...

God may allow us to experience hardships to renew our faith, purify our hearts, or even to bring a nonbeliever into His flock. That was the case for Melanie and her husband, a Muslim couple in Bulgaria.

Two years ago, Melanie’s husband was in an accident that resulted in the amputation of his leg. Their lives turned upside down. Melanie’s husband was unable to work.
