Paul & Doris Chester

SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA

Today we're going to Africa. There are many countries in Africa, of course, but we're not going to say just where our missionaries serve. We'll call them Paul and Doris, not their real names. Our story today sounds like what we read about in the New Testament. A woman we'll call Kate was suffering from demons. They attacked her non-stop. She had trouble talking with her family, working or even eating. Demons always work for evil. Kate's husband, Abe, went to visit our missionaries, Paul and Doris, and asked if they would come to his home and try to help his wife. When the missionaries arrived, they presented Jesus Christ, the answer to all problems, including being possessed by demons. During that visit Abe, Kate and their daughter confessed their sin and yielded their lives to Christ. The demons are gone now, because when Kate feels threatened, she calls on her powerful personal Savior, Jesus Christ, and help is immediate. Folks, our church's Cooperative Program giving helped train and equip Paul and Doris and helped them get to Africa. We continue to help them live and serve there. Aren't you glad that the Gospel is real and that it makes a huge and positive difference in the lives of people! Let's pray now for Paul and Doris, that they will see more victories as they present Jesus Christ to people. Let's pray for this new family of believers and ask God that they may grow in their new Christian faith.
