Hope you are all doing great today! Another friend I would like to introduce to you guys and ask that you would pray for him is, Alex. He is the older brother of Brus, maybe you can remember him?
Any way Alex is also a very special friend of mine and someone I dearly love and care for. He also had a typical animistic back ground and was not very positive concerning the evangelical teaching in the beginning. He together with the the others often broke into our houses and stole our stuff etc. I specifically remember how I tried to visit him in order to start winning his friendship but how i actually saw him hide away, and as I approached he ran away.
But just after our first evangelical round of teaching in 2009 him and his brother both had an amazing change of heart. This was surely due to Gods grace, but also due to many of your prayers in that time. He soon started attending the literacy classes and became one of our first literacy teachers. He also faithfully started to attend our lessons from Acts and we soon realized that he has placed his faith in Christ for his salvation, As time went on he developed into a faithful trainee teacher as well.
I have a special burden for Alex because of his marriage with an unbelieving lady called Mande. It was an arranged marriage before he became a believer and even though she is starting to show interesest she has not yet become a believer. I remember how he came to me after and shared about the difficulties he is having with his wife. Alex has often come to me for prayer and advice, and often he even gets sad and even cries, which is strange for e Mengen man.
I thus added a picture for you guys and ask that you would pray with us for Alex and his wife and that the Lord would make a difference in her life.
