Daily Courage - January 26

from Day by Day with the Persecuted Church

Make the most of your chances to tell others the good news. (Colossians 4:5)

Open Doors Contact Person - part 1

Pastor J and his wife were travelling by car from the southern part of Malawi back to Blantyre. Suddenly their car came to a standstill in front of an Islamic secondary school. Pastor J, thinking that his car was overheated, walked to a big rock nearby and sat on it, waiting for the engine to cool down. The scene attracted people from the vicinity, so Pastor J asked his wife to fetch the tambourine from the car and they began to sing some choruses. They saw the incident as an opportunity to share the Gospel. Eleven people surrendered their lives to the Lord - two of whom were Muslim students from the secondary school.

God can turn problems into opportunities, always - everywhere.
