From Serving Satan to Serving Jesus
For eighteen years, D had been a powerful witch doctor, but the more demonic power she gained, the more her health declined. Her daughter, studying in distant Beira, heard about her mother’s illness and contacted our pastor, who went to visit her. He presented the Gospel to her, and soon after, she arrived at church, bringing all her witchcraft apparel for public burning. Last week, she opened up her home to church cell meetings where disciples can grow in their knowledge and understanding of Christ. We simply rejoice with them.
Eugene and Tina would describe themselves as “gradual” Christians. The Lord took more than 25 years to move them from “dead religion” to being full-on, full-time missionaries. By that time, both their daughters, Chantelle and Tanya were married and serving the Lord in their own lives. Their call was dramatic and clear. The Lord used His Word, (especially Isaiah 58, “Feed the hungry,…clothe the naked,…pour out your lives in a sun-scorched land”…) followed by prophetic individuals speaking in confirmation that left them without doubt. Their testimony includes suffering bodily harm for His sake. Eugene and Tina returned to the field after surgery to continue preaching the Gospel. They are currently involved in a new church-plant and discipleship of believers.
