While visiting India in 1985, two cousins from different cities asked, “Sister, you have known the Sabbath truth for so long; how is it that you never shared it with us?” We took this as a double message from God to share the Sabbath truth with our relatives.
Ten years past, In 1995, we accompanied a team of 25 — pastors, evangelists, doctors, nurses, educators to conduct 7 simultaneous crusades in 7 centers in Andhra Pradesh, India. We invited all our relatives to come and receive the Sabbath truth. Our story is how God lead us in sharing the message to our relatives and neighbors, and how God performed miracle after miracle providing funds to build two churches, a high school, lay evangelism, and widows’ ministry. The school has 475 students with a staff of 30. Our teachers come from Hindu, Muslim and Christian faiths. All are being touched by Christ’s love. So many lives have been touched and changed for the better. If God can use us two insignificant people, He can use anyone who is willing to share their faith. God’s biddings are His enablings!
