I am always on the lookout for people who are interested in what the Bible has to say. Since being in Cameroon, I've been blessed to have Bible studies with a number of guys, however, none has been more encouraging or exciting than Abel. Abel showed up one day at my gate, asking if he could share the Word of God with me. I said yes, and pretty soon, it turned out that I was sharing the Word of God with him.
|George and Abel have become good friends. Here Abel was helping us set up for our New Years' Party.|
|In addition to our personal Bible studies, Abel has been a part of youth group Bible studies, programs in our house, gym workouts, and more. He has learned from what I have taught, but also from watching our lives and our family.|
Two weeks ago, Abel and I studied the topic of Baptism...its meaning, significance and importance. Abel was challenged by what we studied, and told me he had been thinking about it for a while. I told him to take his time, study some scriptures I shared with him, and pray about it then make a thoughtful decision. Last Saturday, he made that decision. He called me up and said he had decided that he wanted to be immersed into Christ. We went down to a stream near Buea, (where people often wash cars) and instead washed some sins away! It was an incredibly encouraging and exciting thing to see. Join me in thanking God, and also in praying for Abel, as this is just a first step of many that he will need to continue to make in His Christian walk.
