His Love Reaches Farther | Tanzanian Witchdoctor Repents, Turns to Christ

Who, oh Lord, could save themselves,
Their own soul could heal?
Our shame was deeper than the sea
Your grace is deeper still

You alone can rescue, You alone can save
You alone can lift us from the grave
You came down to find us, led us out of death
To You alone belongs the highest praise

You, oh Lord, have made a way
The great divide You heal
For when our hearts were far away
Your love went further still
Yes, your love goes further still

We lift up our eyes, lift up our eyes
You’re the Giver of Life!

[You Alone Can Rescue - Matt Redman]

It is God who opens doors for Evangelism.
It is God who gives ears to hear and eyes to see the Gospel.
And it is God who transforms the heart to receive the Gospel.

Gospelink preachers all over Africa and Asia are making much of Jesus to every person they meet – even the unlikely.  To the mothers, the fathers, the children, the government workers, vendors, the witchdoctors…no one is discounted! Here is a preacher report from a Tanzanian preacher (Ambrose Sarima). Hope you’re encouraged!

Ambrose Sarima

I thank God for giving me evangelism opportunities in different places during this quarter.  I was able to witness God’s miracles in the ministry.  My evangelism team and I were almost beaten at Kitunda Village.  We were in one house sharing the Gospel without knowing that we were annoying the chairman of the village government.  He was a witchdoctor.  Witchdoctors in our country have many followers and are the source of many problems in our society.  The chairman of the village government hired the witchdoctor to fight us.  Instead of beating us, they disclosed the secret plan to us.  We followed one of them home to discuss the problem and to share God’s Word to him.  He was very sorry and accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior.  He brought his tools that he uses in his work and we burnt them.  Please pray for Monanka for he is now a Christian and needs to grow with the Lord.
