God transforms a family

A woman and her husband accept the Lord after hearing the gospel from an OM team visiting the island of Sante Marie.

“Reading Hunger for Reality by George Verwer on the plane to Madagascar introduced me to a new kind of faith,” said Stephen Drury (UK), a participant in a recent outreach with OM Madagascar to the island of Sainte Marie. “But it was only when I was in St. Marie praising God at 4:00 in the morning that I really came to grips with what hunger looks like.”

During the outreach in a small village, a woman gave her life to the Lord. A few days later, the team returned with gifts and a copy of the Bible. They knew the woman couldn’t read, but they trusted that God would somehow make a way for His Word to enter her heart and mind.

 “We praised the Lord when she informed us that her young daughter could read the Bible to her,” said Stephen. After giving out the gifts, the team presented the gospel to the woman’s husband, who also accepted the Lord!

“There's no doubt the Holy Spirit was with us and went before us wherever we went,” remembered Stephen.

Praise God for bringing transformation to this family. Please pray for others like them who heard about Christ for the first time during this outreach. Please pray for wisdom and strength for the OM Madagascar team.
