Choosing Faith : One Hope
We have been working with a young lady on a presentation for One Hope’s mentoring project. Recently, after a business meeting at our office, she requested a personal meeting with our project manager about an unspecified issue.
When she met up with our manager at a coffee shop she shared that her heart was burdened by the story of a friend who had recently been sent to an asylum. She was very worried about him and shared that it was difficult for her to see him in his mental state. Both the man’s parents and doctors were unable to help him. So this young lady had decided to start seeking God. She asked us about Him and we were able to share about His love and His ability to help people when no one else could. Our manager then suggested that she try fasting and praying for her friend.
It’s amazing how God can use terrible situations as opportunities for people to discover Him. Through her friend’s situation, and an encounter with our One Hope project, this woman’s desire to explore faith has been awakened. Now she is even considering visiting a church! Our hope is that this young woman realises her need for Jesus – not only for the fight for her friend’s life but also for her own soul.
