Before Pastor Pesach stood Sima, a young man with swollen eyes. Sima’s mother, who attended Pesach’s church, wanted Pesach to pray for him. It probably wasn’t the first time someone would ask Pesach to pray for their family member, and it wouldn’t be the last. Regardless, Pesach couldn’t have known that praying for this one man would be one more link in a chain reaction, a chain reaction that had started many years earlier when Pesach was a young man himself.
Finding Abundant Life
Pesach had grown up like many people in his village, following religious rituals and knowing nothing of the personal relationship he could have with Christ.
Eventually, Pesach got married and joined the police force. Things were going well. He and his wife, Teo, were blessed with three children, and Pesach enjoyed good health. In time, he rose to the ranks of police inspector. But something was missing. Despite his seemingly good, fulfilling life, Pesach had never felt true happiness or joy.
One night in 1990, that changed when three Christians visited Pesach’s home. They shared the Good News with him, sang some hymns and invited him to attend the worship service at their church. Their words and songs imprinted themselves on Pesach’s heart.
You can leave a legacy by equipping national missionaries in Africa and Asia who are making Jesus’ name known among people who have yet to hear of the hope found only in Him.
