I’ve been in an IT (Information Technology) Connect conference for the past 2 weeks and it’s exciting each morning to be able to listen to the testimonies of all those who are attending the conference. It is amazing to see how God has been working in each of our lives and I wanted to share the testimony that I heard today.
F. was raised hearing about God and did very well in school and his uncle had agreed to pay for his university training but a month after moving in with his uncle, his uncle passed away. This meant that F. had to get a job and the only job that he could find was washing cars. One day as he was washing a persons car he asked them about the logo on their car and what it stood for, something he never did he just wanted to wash it and get to the next car. The logo was SIL and after he explained what it stood for he asked him what his mother tongue was and if he could read in it. He had never tried to read in his mother tongue, but he could read in other languages so he was willing to try. The SIL missionary gave him a tract in his mother tongue and told him when he finished reading that he gave him directions to come to his office so he could get the next track.
Well, F. continued to go back several times and after he finished reading the tracks in his mother tongue he began reading the bible stories that were also available in his mother tongue. One time he was there getting another book to read he heard that there was a need for a weekend security guard. He applied and used the money he made on the weekend to pay for his university training. He is now a computer and language software specialist.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him,who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 NIV
That is so awesome – and so like God. We need always to be watching for the signs. His call can come in many shapes and forms – even a sticker on a car.
Thanks for sharing. Great testimony.
