Slow Journey to Christ in Kenya
Geoffrey Nyaboga, a WEI teacher in western Kenya, tells an interesting story about a student’s slow and tedious journey to Christ.
Geoffrey writes, “We had one soul added to the church today. John Orina has been a Catholic believer and one of the leaders there. He was ‘baptized’ through the sprinkling of water.
“The first time I met John, he didn’t want me to open the Bible and share with him. I asked him, ‘Do you believe the Bible is the holy book of God?’ He said, ‘Yes.’ I said, ‘Then let us open it and read together.’ At that time, he ran away.
“I kept praying for him and visiting him regularly. Sometimes he would hide from me, and sometimes he would accept me. But through regular sharing and praying, John obeyed the gospel and was added to the Lord’s church.”
