Into the light!
Items of witchcraft to be destroyed
This story is a huge one in the life of a small village near us called Nabilasso.Yesterday after Pastor Youssouf preached at the small church service there in the village, this woman came forward and accepted Christ. Her name is Zele Kone, she is a widely sought after witch-doctor. She brought her magic articles, and she and the pastor destroyed them together.
People (And other sorcerers) come from all around to consult her and learn from her as she is old and has done this for a long time. Now she is leaving all of it behind for Christ. It makes a song like "I have decided to follow Jesus" have a deeper meaning for someone like this...
(Or maybe Bloodgood- "Out of the Darkness----Into the light...." :D) Of course we were all dead in sin before Christ, But maybe not so mired with the devil?
Pray for her as she embarks on a life of Faith. Pray that the new presence of Jesus would remove the evil spirits' power in this village, and that others would come to Christ now that the devils influence is diminished.
The praying neighbor,
Pastor Daouda (holding items of witchcraft to be destroyed),
and new believer Zele.
The accompanying story is represented in this picture. On the left is an old man, he and his wife have been believers and have been praying for this woman for a few years now, since they themselves accepted Christ. They have prayed and witnessed in spite of her cursing them, and putting spells on them. Have you witnessed to your neighbors recently? Have you said "My neighbor Sam is too embroiled in his sin. He won't accept Christ, He's lost." If anyone was lost it was this woman. Yet this older couple prayed for her, and Christ changed her heart. Take heart friends! Christ is in the business of changing lives! Don't give up!
Pray for our village pastors as this is the kind of things they face in their villages. Rocky soil for the gospel. But Jesus is not deterred by rocks.
Thanks for stopping by for this newsflash!
