CAN I ASK YOU A QUESTION ABOUT JESUS CHRIST?

A TESTIMONY FROM JACOB | SOUTH ASIA

“Can I ask you a question about Jesus Christ?” That’s what Lito asked me as we sat down in our living room, where a local language Bible is on display. Lito wanted to know what Christ taught about morality.

Unfortunately, most people here, like Lito, only know of Christianity from what they see on immoral foreign TV programs. Often assuming that’s what all “Christians” practice. He could tell our family was not like the “Hollywood” family-units he has seen on TV. He also lamented about the town we both live in here, which is home to one of the largest brothels in the country where many vulnerable girls fall victim to a vicious cycle that is almost impossible for them to escape. This is something he feels is hypocritical of the town and the predominant religion. As we talked about what Christ taught, I opened up the Bible and we read some verses from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount together.

God is answering your prayers! You have been praying for Lito and his students that he teaches. I have been teaching them an English class and spending time with them. Keep praying for more opportunities to share and for soft hearts!
