I truly give thanks to Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother for allowing me to be where a member of our heavenly family was born again yesterday.
It’s been about eight years since I met Sister Rachel. When I used to attend a Protestant church, she always sat in front of me with her husband and four children during worship. She would often ask me to join her and some other women in reading the Bible together.
After receiving the true God, I really wanted to preach the truth to her because she liked reading the Bible. But when I preached the Word to her, she gave a cold response to my preaching. Then, as she got a job, she became so busy working and taking care of her four children that we could not even meet each other.
Three years passed by. My husband and I had been continuously praying for her soul, and one day I heard some news about her; she was moving back to Cape Town in South Africa, her hometown. I was worried that she might not have another chance to listen to the gospel, so I visited her.
“You wanted to read the Bible with me a few years ago, right? This time I came because I wanted to read the Bible with you.”
From that day on, I visited her once every two weeks to deliver the words of the Bible to her. But she seemed unable to accept the words into her heart. Whenever I preached God’s word to her and left her house, I felt so heartbroken.
Then recently I saw how God’s word was changing a soul. When she studied the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation, she was so shocked and amazed by the accurate fulfillment of the Biblical prophecies that she wanted to know more about the truth. She also asked me if there was the Church of God in Cape Town as well.
Yesterday I visited her again. She seemed very tired most likely because she was so busy preparing to move. However, when she studied the Bible, she didn’t look tired anymore. Thinking that I wouldn’t be able to meet her again, I felt so anxious. It was probably the first time that I had ever preached so eagerly and devotedly. I told her again about all the things that I had preached to her till then. Then she said:
“So, you mean Jesus has already come to this earth a second time?”
She even remembered what she had heard three years ago, and she wanted to receive the truth, saying, “From now on I’d like to do what is right in God’s eyes.” I was surprised about how she still kept the words of God in her mind because I thought that she must have forgotten them. What was more surprising was that all the idols which had filled her bedroom and bathroom were gone; she must have thrown away all her idols. When I looked around her house, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I felt that Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother had already opened her heart and prepared the way.
“I’ll only do what is right in God’s eyes.”
She has received the truth, and now she is only concerned about how to live a life of faith properly. I truly want her to live a life of faith worthy in God’s eyes so that she will receive many blessings from God and enter the kingdom of heaven without fail.
