A retired couple from a nearby country felt called to serve unreached people where Karly* lives. They came with a lot of unknowns, including how to best reach the lost.
Karly suggested meeting together to study the Bible. That way, they could learn from Jesus’ example of ministry. After the first meeting, they each agreed to pray and spend time with God in a public place.
Karly’s friend shared her experience: “I went to one place. I asked God to show me his heart for the people around me, but I didn’t really hear anything. So I went to a different place. I prayed again. This time, God impressed on me this phrase: ‘Be a light in the darkness.’ When I heard that, I realized how much time I spend with other believers. God did not say, ‘Be a light among lights.’ I have to go out into the darkness. This is God’s heart.”
“For this is what the Lord has commanded us: ‘I have made you a light… that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’” Acts 13:47
