Last night, while preparing for my mission trip to Nepal with the speaker, I heard about the miracles that only God could do in India with the SEED Ministry.
One testimony was of a local Buddhist driver who was assigned to the ministry team. He drove for the team as they travelled to and from Siligiri, India.
After two days of listening to the gospel being preached, and witnessing the many miracles that took place at the miracle rallies, he told the speaker on reaching their hotel after service the second night – “Sir, I have listened, I have watched for two days. I believe.” Straight away the speaker shared the gospel of Jesus Christ message with him to affirm his desire to know the Lord. He was led in the sinner’s prayer and was jubilantly saved.
Next day, when he arrived to pick them up for that night’s rally, he told the speaker “Sir, I called my wife who is working as a home assistant in Singapore and told her that I became a Christian last night. She wants to become a Christian too. Can you please send some one to help her become a Christian and bring her to church when you return to Singapore?”
The next day he was to send the team to the airport and they were not stopping by Siligiri en route to the airport. He insisted that the speaker must needs go to Siligiri to speak to his boss, a Sikh as he had told his boss that he had become a Christian. The speaker agreed and the three of them sat in a coffee house for two hours. The Sikh boss asked endless questions and soon they had to leave for the airport. The speaker gave him a local contact to ask more questions if he had them. The Sikh however said “Sir, I believe, I want to become a Christian now – tell me how”. And again the preacher shared the gospel of Jesus Christ and the Sikh became a Christian by. accepting Him as his personal Savior.
What a testimony of how one miracle was multiplied to three conversions. So as the SEED ministry teams visit there are not only big healing and miracles during the rallies. Jesus is alive and touches individual lives along the way. He saves and rescues from the grip of sin and other beliefs.
It reminds me of when Jesus felt He “must needs go through Samaria. ”
How many times has the Lord nudged us to people and places we must not miss for Him? Have we been obedient or missed the opportunities of experiencing God?
