I was working as a mechanic in a factory in Germany when an Argentinian worker who had immigrated with his wife approached me, asking if I believed in Jesus.

The man told me how his wife had been healed after prayer, and how he had been freed from an addiction to alcohol. He also said that his sins had been forgiven and that his life had changed by following Jesus. I didn’t know Jesus.

I started reading the Bible and going to the church that he was attending. I soon understood that I should submit my life to Christ. My life changed completely, and for the first time, I knew that my sins had been forgiven.

The Argentine and his wife accompanied me on the path of faith for about three years. Together, we read the Bible, prayed and talked about the things of the kingdom of God. This relationship helped me stand firm and grow in the faith in my early years as a Christian.

This man simply shared the gospel of Jesus Christ in his workplace and community—he was an everyday disciple.

Prayer + Reflection

  • Pray for effective ways to equip and send the whole church to do the work of the ministry in every community (Eph. 4:11-12).
  • Pray that every Christian in the church will be empowered by the Holy Spirit to preach the gospel and do what Jesus did (Acts 1:8; Matt. 10; John 14:12).
  • Pray for God to show you creative ways to reach and disciple children and youth (Ps. 144:12,15).
