Because You Prayed . . .

By Don and Hazel Schaeffer, serving in Japan

Last fall, the Alliance family prayed for Mrs. N, who had come to our church’s Bible study after receiving a gospel choir flyer.

During a recent Bible study, Mrs. N heard people praying for her and her young son, who had been having problems with his teacher. Mrs. N told a woman in attendance, “I know I will be a Christian soon.”

Shortly thereafter, Mrs. N attended special evangelistic meetings at our church. As the pastor shared the gospel, she dabbed her eyes with her handkerchief throughout the afternoon session.

During the concluding prayer time, Mrs. N raised her hand to indicate that she wanted to believe in Jesus. The speaker prayed with Mrs. N, and when she talked with us afterward, she said she wants to be baptized! Praise God for how He is working.

What You Can Do

Thank the Lord for bringing Mrs. N to a saving knowledge of Jesus. Pray that the rest of her family will receive Him as Savior.

Give to Alliance Great Commission Ministries to ensure that dedicated workers like Don and Hazel Schaeffer can remain on the field introducing lost people to Jesus.
