In Southwest China where the elevation begins to climb near the foothills of the Himalayas my wife and I found ourselves walking a dirt trail through a dense forest park.
We were walking to a family picnic near a local lake that our Chinese friend Ben had invited us to. We had quickly become friends with Ben when we met him at a local coffee shop. Though very shy, he introduced himself at the cafe as he wanted to practice his English. Shortly after, he invited us to the lake picnic which was a great honor.
That day at the lake with Ben and his family sparked a long friendship and many hours spent at the coffee shop discussing the Bible and faith soon followed. After a few months of discussion and other believers sharing with him Ben eventually decided to accept Jesus into his heart! A few years later he even began managing at the coffee shop where he was able to share the gospel with the staff and regular customers.
Ben has also been able to share his faith with is family. When Ben’s father lost his mother, Ben shared the gospel again. Instead of rebuking his son for this new faith his dad actually accepted it. How incredible it is to see generations saved through just one person! Pray for Ben that his entire family would accept the gospel. Pray that others can find people like Ben to create friendships with and show Gods love.
