Life Changing story

“Cast thy bread upon the waters; for thou shalt find it after many days.” Ecclesiastes 11:1

François is a Lebanese young adult from Saida, the largest city in South Lebanon. He is 24 years old and is a volunteer in our ministry helping us at the fairbooth which is currently held in Antelias. He shared with us how the Lutheran ministry affected his life since he was a little child in school, and continue to have the same effect till this day.

He told us, “When I was a teen at school, I used to study in the book “Garden of youth”, one of your Bible correspondence books. I still remember this book with its variety of subjects and lessons that concern the youth in this specific life span, and take cares of every spiritual and social aspect of our lives. This book has helped me to grow in the Lord and deepen my knowledge of the Bible. It planted the love of Jesus in my heart and made me love the Word of God and His ministry.”

Now he is a grown man, specialized in graphic design, and he is volunteering at our booth in an exhibition/ bookfair held in Antelias. He volunteers because, he believes that our materials would help people know Christ, and consequently change their lives. He said, “every time I see this book (Garden of youth) on the shelf it takes me back about 17 years ago. I remember my friends from school and how we used to work together and learn from the explanations of the lessons of this great book.

May God help you in reaching out to people that need the power and the Word of God, and help you change their lives to the better as you helped change mine. God Bless you”.
