I hope you guys are doing great! Thanks for partnering with us and especially for praying for the Mengen believers. Today I would like to introduce you to Gabby. He is one of our Bible teacher trainees. When I got to know him he was living in a different village about 3 days hike away from us. He was still a teenager then and really did not have a great attitude towards our teaching. From time to time he would come and visit our village and actually stole allot from my office. But slowly but surely the believers started to share with him and especially his brother challenged him about his spiritual condition.
I then started to hear rumors that Gabby has changed and was actually even challenging the religious leaders in the village he was at. Eventually he returned to live in our village, and he says he did this in order to be close to the teaching. As time went by the believers taught and discipled Gabby to the point where he made a clear profession of his trust in Christ alone for his salvation.
At this moment he is carrying the responsibility of hiking an hour, twice a week to our southern church plant to disciple a couple of believers. He also seems to suffer from some form of epilepsy and shares that he has these seizures –as many as 3 times per week! But he shared that God’s Word was too great to stop teaching as he experiences far greater joy. Please pray for his healing or medication that would help him. He is newly married with two small children and his wife is right now hearing the evangelistic teaching for the first time and tracking and responding to truth. Please pray that God would give her a ‘spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Christ’ (Eph. 1:17) as she comes from a family that is diametrically opposed to the gospel.
Thanks for praying with us!
