We received the following encouraging update from our partner in Quebec, Aujourd'hui l'espoir.
“To encourage you to continue in your good work, I would like to share with you what the Thursday Hope Line volunteer, Jean, just shared with me.
"After hanging up from a discouraging phone call with someone mocking Christ, a man called to discuss the Bible and to find out where to find the Ten Commandments. He often reads a Shareword Bible that he has. He doesn't have a TV or a computer. A neighbour had given him our phone number, suggesting he call if he had any questions. Yesterday was the day of salvation for this man!
“After answering his questions, Jean asked the man his favourite question: “Have you experienced new birth in Christ?"
“The man said, "No, but I would like to!"
“Jean explained the plan of salvation to him and asked him to look up several verses in the Bible. Jean told the man that he could experience this new birth in Christ, right now, on the phone. He prayed with Jean and this man is now our brother in Christ! He said it was the happiest day of his life! (There was a celebration in heaven!)
“Thank you Lord for the miracle of eternal life!
“I couldn't keep this great news for myself!
“People are open in these turbulent times. Let us be lights that shine and the ambassadors of our good master!"
