Our contact with people who come to us is almost always for a short period: we walk alongside them for a while as they do a course or are talking with them via the chat. It’s really special when someone comes back after some years to let you know how they are doing. Aia Isabel from the Philippines did that recently.
The young lady started chatting four years ago with one of our colleagues, Catharinus, via our English language Facebook page.
Aia Isabel: ‘I visited this page when I was 19 years old and now I am 23. The person who I talked with earlier in this chat box, told me that he would pray for me. I want to thank him. In July, I was baptized in an evangelical church and since that time, I know the truth.’
‘Today we had our Bible study and I searched Google for the Bible passage that we wanted to read together. Through a picture from BiblWord, I came directly to the Facebook page and I was reminded that Catharinus told me that he would pray for me. Praise the Lord. I feel really blessed that this was one of the blessings to me when I was living a worldly life. Thank you for reaching people.’
The conversation with Catharinus and his prayer for her were used by God to reach Aia Isabel with the Gospel. What joy it gives to know that since then, she has been baptized and walks in the truth.
