On December 18 they presented the Gospel to the five people (two men, three women) that they had been teaching the Creation to Christ , and all believed!! They didn’t have acting this time (for a number of reasons), but just taught through the Bible lessons and showed the pictures. But there was an even greater response among those hearing than ever before! Bilyem said that even those believers who had seen the acting twice were moved to weeping and tears. It sounds like this time they were not distracted by the visual aspects of the story, but in listening and pondering and understanding they really understood what happened. It just goes to show the power of the written word, and how the Holy Spirit uses the faithful presentation of the truth!
One of the men was an older man who has some sort of cancer. Before he sat under the teaching he had been to different clinics and hospitals and was thinking he would need surgery or something. In fact, he was contemplating having a specialist work some sort of magic on him, in an attempt to heal him of it. But after hearing the Gospel and believing in Jesus’ shed blood and substitutionary death, he said that he is no longer worried about it! He told Bilyem that he is just waiting – waiting for the Lord to call him home!
