“Students have a great desire to serve the Lord and are growing spiritually every day,” wrote Hans Frank. “It was very beautiful to hear the testimonies of students and watching them share something of their lives. They all have different stories, but God’s grace is always abundant.”
This is the testimony of one of the students, Andres Maldonado:
Recently I have learned many things that I didn’t know before, and are new to me. I feel like a new man in the Gospel and I have many questions.
At the beginning I felt angry with the people who taught me the Gospel, because I felt deceived and defrauded. For so long I believed all those false arguments and foundations that didn’t lead anywhere, always fighting for my salvation in my own strength, but I always ended up in the same place.
This situation for so many years was discouraging, and I strayed from the Lord’s path many times, but I would come back begging for mercy and forgiveness from God. And then it would all start again.
Years have gone by and because of God’s will I am here in the missionary institute confronting what I grew up learning, and learning the truth of what God says in his Word. I am realizing my fragile situation. I didn’t know the real God and the most important thing of all, what Jesus Christ did for the entire human race.
Nothing and no one can separate us from such great love that He showed to me on the cross, and that it was all finished there in that place and all that is needed is to believe and trust in Jesus Christ the Son of God.
I am thankful that God has allowed me to be here with my family, learning the truth from the beginning of the Bible. I feel like a baby that is still even now drinking his mother’s milk, and sometimes the food they give us is thick and sometimes hard to digest, but the Lord´s mercy is everlasting and He works in ways that I sometimes cannot understand.
Although I might be stubborn, He is always a gentleman and is there giving us good things. I am here learning and receiving nourishment that my unsatisfied soul had never received before.
Please pray that the students learn and grow in the Lord so they can be what God wants them to be. Find out how you can train to become a missionary.
