A Story of People Seeing Jesus in You

Below is an awesome story of freedom for which I give praise to

God and thanks to each of you for helping me help Evan!

I've heard since I was a child from well-meaning Sun-
day school teachers and pastors, that because I'm a
Christan, people will notce a diference in me and will
want to know more. I always lived a "good Christan
life", but those encounters didn't really ever happen like
they said they would. That is, not untl I began to understand the
complete Gospel and allow it to transform my life.

Now, people actually do want to know more. Just last week, my
own mother told me she wanted to learn what I've been learning.
Her reason? She'd notced a diference in me and wanted to know
what was causing it. She's been a Christan for my entre life. I
could list a dozen or more situatons like this from the past 6
months that are just as out of the ordinary to me. But, it is no long-
er unusual.

Sharing my faith used to be so dauntng. I never felt equipped, nev-
er felt confdent, and never felt like I'd have answers. Even when I
lived as a missionary in Nicaragua, I spent my tme doing practcal
work, not sharing my faith. This has now been turned on its head
because I understand the complete Gospel.

I feel able to talk to anyone, now. Especially the lost, the hurtng,
the broken, and even the unbelieving. Those were the people and
situatons that used to intmidate me the most. I now have a genu-
ine love for them and see the possibilites for freedom and trans-
formaton in their life. I know the power of the Gospel and want
them to experience it.

Amazingly, the people I encounter don't feel threatened by me.
They want to share their struggles and ask for my perspectve. I
have so many opportunites to speak the truth in love.

The greatest part of all of this is I know it isn't me. It's just me al-
lowing Jesus to live through me. I love getng to let Him.

Mark and the GLI ministry have played a critcal role in this trans-
formaton in my life, and I'm thankful to God for how He has used
them to impact my life and the lives of others.

update. We have a great opportunity to depend on Jesus to pro-
vide for us as weve lost more monthly support than ever but be-
lieve He is going to provide the rest! We thank God for our new
supporters, for those who have increased their monthly support
amount and for those who have given special donatons.
The Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should
receive their living by the gospel. 1 Corinthians 9:14
