Field Report: I was smoking, using bad language and even using the Bible as toilet paper…

EthiopiaNov2011-1578-2fbBefore a missionary church planter is sent out our team interviews them for their personal story. This is one of our new church planters:

It wasn’t that long ago I was a Muslim and highly opposed to Christian missionaries. I was smoking, using bad language to talk about Jesus and even using the pages of the Bible as toilet paper.  As I was using the pages this way, I saw a vision of a cross with blood dripping from it and Jesus reached his hand through the blood towards me and said that I would be a missionary of the Gospel.  He said I would evangelize and plant churches, whereas at the time I used my energies to burn churches.  Today God has placed in my heart a great desire to preach the Good News for those who haven’t heard it and make them disciples. Now I have a vision to go a certain tribe that is very cut off from society and lives primitively with no clothes. Please pray that God will release His grace on my life to do His work.
