Timothy P., Regional Director of GNPI-SE Asia
Our team member Aung recently shared the Gospel with some people in a western village. God is working in a wonderful way among the people of SE Asia. These are some of the people who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior.
I am thirty-nine years old. I have been a Buddhist all my life. I’d never heard about Jesus Christ before Aung visited our village. Many Buddhists view Christianity as a perverted and false religion.
Aung shared about the true and living God. After I heard the Message, I realized what I had heard about Christianity before was totally wrong. I have come to understand clearly that the one true God is Jesus Christ. Jesus gave His own life in order to pay for our sins and came to life again.
When the teacher contrasted Scripture and the teachings of Buddhism using materials created by GNPI-SE Asia, I was convinced that my former way was wrong. I am so happy to hear this Message. I now believe that Jesus Christ is the true God who can save me out of sin. Not only me, I also want all of my relatives to know Jesus and accept Him as their Savior. I will try to share with them about this wonderful God. If my relatives hear this message presented the way I did, they will accept Jesus Christ too.
I was a Buddhist, and I also worshiped spirits. This young teacher visited our village and talked about Jesus Christ. I realized that my way of living is totally wrong because I was following false gods. I know that spirits deceived me. I now understand that Jesus Christ has power over all spirits, and He can cast out all evil spirits into Hell at the end of time. If I continually worship those spirits who will be thrown into Hell, I would surely go to Hell too. I’ve never known about these things before.
I have decided to throw all of the images of spirits out of my house because these things could not save me from sin. The only one who can save me is Jesus Christ alone. I feel assurance that if I believe in Jesus Christ, I don’t need to fear spirits because Jesus has power over them and rules them. I now worship Jesus Christ and pray to Him alone.
I am an elder of our village. I never heard about Jesus Christ, and I thought Christianity was something to fear. This young teacher told me about the unrivaled God whom Christians worship as the only true God. I could easily understand that Jesus is the overcomer from his explanation and teaching tools. I accept Jesus Christ as the true and living God whom everyone should worship.
