Doreen's Story

We should never underestimate the power of God to transform one person's life, and then powerfully use that person to reach many more for Jesus! That is exactly what happened when one woman heard of the love God had for her, received it, and began to share it with those around her.

Doreen and her family lived in a small town in east Africa. It had been their tradition to worship the spirits of ancestors, and she had never thought of doing otherwise.

One day while trying to tune in a radio station, Doreen heard music...a different kind of music than anything she had heard before. The music was upbeat and happy, and she  left her radio tuned to the station that was playing these unique-sounding songs!

At times, the station would stop playing music, and Doreen would hear men speaking of a God who they said loved her. She continued to listen, and finally contacted the radio station to ask who she could talk to in order to learn more about their God.

Doreen was directed to a local Christian pastor who shared the gospel with her. When she heard the good news of Jesus, Doreen gladly accepted His gift of salvation! She then told her husband about Jesus, and he decided to take Jesus into his life as well!

Friends and family immediately began to notice something was different with Doreen and her husband, and began to ask what had happened to them. Doreen told them to listen to the radio station and they would soon learn!

One year after coming to faith in Jesus Christ, Doreen told the people at the radio station, "we came to know Jesus Christ, and now we make others know Him also!"

Is there someone you could tell about Jesus today?

"...the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world - just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God's grace."  (Colossians 1:6-7)
