Testimony from the field | Planting Seeds
Prayer for World Outreach’s field personnel is vital! Especially during COVID-19.
We have received this encouraging testimony from one of our faithful frontline workers. We pray it encourages you too!
If you would like to partner with us, please see below for how to give to our COVID-19 Appeal.
”There was a kind chief that put us up for the night when our canoe was swept across the bay during a storm. At the time he was open to friendship but closed to the gospel. “Here,” he said waving his hand up and down the coast, “we have a different faith.”
Recently though he has been hit with hard times; since we last saw him, he has lost two adult children and two other close family members. Thieves also recently stripped him of his life’s earnings.
The next day I sent a colleague over the bay to visit the chief and to bring him some hunger relief. It seems he has undergone a change of heart. “I think it is time we begin to learn the Christian scriptures.” he said.
Recently, the chief sent me a message saying he would like it if I personally joined what has now become a regular gathering of between 30 and 50 people. He has clearly stated, “I remain in my traditional faith, but the scriptures I hear are clearer than ours.”
Never before have I felt the need for prayer for wisdom. Here is a group of community leaders both religious and secular who are listening! This in itself is a big breakthrough.“
Praise the Lord for these important seeds being planted!
We pray you will be encouraged by this testimony! Will you join us in praying for the unreached people around the globe?

Our missionaries need funds to help people within the communities they are endeavouring to reach. These funds will be used to purchase food, medicines and other basic necessities to help people struggling to get by.
