What God Can Do

By Allison S.

It was the hardest day and the best day.

I didn’t even think I could get out of bed this morning. Jax and I had spent the night taking turns vomiting into a bucket. I don’t share this because I want sympathy. I share it to demonstrate what God can do. We were physically incapable of doing anything in our own strength this morning.

Every single person we shared the gospel with accepted Christ. Last year we had the privilege of visiting the home churches that were planted after our visit. The amount of Christians in the village had increased by more than 150%!
