A couple from our church are currently involved with a short term missionary group in Africa. Besides all the great things going on with their missionary work with the locals we received other great news.
Two of the missionaries in the group were born again and baptized this past week! One of the missionaries had thought they were saved but came to realize he had never been born again. The other was actually a closet atheist who got involved with the mission group as a means of irritating her parents.
The key to their salvation was how much time they were reading the Word of God each day. The last several weeks this missionary team was in an area of Africa with no electricity, internet, phone or any such things. As a result, everyone spent a great deal of time reading their Bible each day. The Holy Ghost used this abundant time in the Word to not only build the followers of Christ up in the Word, but to open the eyes and hearts of the two missionary members who were lost.
What a wonderful God we serve!
