Michael led Sam through Christianity Explained. Sam came to trust in Jesus. Then the whole family was baptised together, including Anna.
So what impact did CEhave on his life?
“I became a Christian but I didn’t know how to forgive. ThroughChristianity Explained, I understood forgiveness. Anna and I used to fight. I knew that if I didn’t forgive my wife, God will not forgive me. Baby steps, we changed bit by bit.”
Sam has now been retired for two years. He made himself available to God. He prayed, “Now I am ready. I am ready with my whole heart. I’ve got the time. Use me.”
One week later, John, from a sister church rang. “Sam, I have a couple from Iran. They are refugees. Would you come?”
This was quite difficult for Sam to agree to. “As I was going, I could feel my feet moving, one towards the door and one away from the door. God reminded me of my offer and promise to him, so I was able to move foreword.”
They used CE to explain the gospel, and Sam was able to translate to Persian. This was just the beginning. God has brought many more Iranians to their church. “God has brought them here. He has put the desire and love in my heart."
