George is his name. He was driven to the crusade by a couple who are on fire for Christ. I had a chance to speak to the couple who brought him – this couple has been married 60 years next month. The first 13 were Hell according to the wife. She suffered abuse, violence, drunken beatings, she even tried to commit suicide 3 times. Her hindu husband even had two other wives and three kids that ran away from home. One day 47 years ago they were witnessed to by a Christian. The husband accepted Jesus. In three months his life became radically different.
They invited George because they have been concerned about his reluctance for so long to leave the Hindu false teachings. Their example and the testimony of our husband and wife teammates provided the compelling reason that George needed to take the step of accepting the free gift of eternal life through Jesus.
Low hanging fruit. All I had to do is say “the stories of His powerful works are too compelling to deny”. The Hindu looked me in the eyes and said “Yes it is, I will beleive”. I led him through the prayer letting him know the prayer did not save him but his trust in the free gift of Jesus Christ and His death on the Cross for our sins and that He is eternally secure as Jesus said “I give to them eternal life and they shall never perish and no one will snatch them out of my hand.”
He did and signed his name to the “Living in Christ” Booklets that I had for each person who accepted Christ as their Savior.
Praise God for his amazing power to break the chains and open the eyes of the blind, even after so many years.
