No Matter the Cost

Following my testimony of March 2018, I am continuing to minister in the northern region of the country, Muyinga District. Reaching Souls International does not have a missionary in that region. It is more than 300km from the capital city of Bujumbura. The majority of the city population in Muyinga is Muslim. By God’s miracle, I have managed to bring a young boy to Jesus Christ. This happened on May 16, 2018 at 4:00 PM. I met this boy not far from his home. As I was witnessing to him, I was afraid his family could see us. However, God controls everything. Finally, the young boy accepted Jesus Christ after I shared the differences between Jesus of the Holy Bible and Isa of the Qur’an, and Jehovah God of the Holy Bible and Allah of the Qur’an.

This is his short testimony:

“I have known the truth about the loving Jehovah and the Messiah Jesus Christ, His Son. I have decided to follow and serve Him. I am aware I have made a very tough decision, as all my close relatives are going to abandon me and even pursue me. I am now cursed physically but I don’t mind. It is well with my Lord Jesus as long as I have assurance of eternal life. My father will even want to kill me, but I know that Jesus Christ, my Savior, will from today be my shield. He will be my God forever.”

There is a Baptist church in the city that has recently started, and the pastor has agreed to take care of the young boy. Pray for him as he starts the tough, long journey.
